Volume 51 - No. 41

By Tom Morrow

Writer’s Note: This is a story told to me back in 2006 by a decorated U.S. Army Air Corps veteran who experienced a Prisoner-of-War nightmare dreaded by all who have worn the uniform in combat conditions. Oceanside’s Bill Ryherd’s personal experience would never have been known had it not been for his wife who called and told me her husband had a story to tell. She knew he had been a POW held by Nazi Germany during World War II, but little else. His WWII experience The Paper - 760.747.7119


was a secret he kept in the recesses of his memory until the waning years of his life. Bill’s wife knew he held memories that would cause him screaming nightmares. This writer was the first to hear the whole story. For history’s sake, here are those memories. Background of the 168 Allied fliers: Although it was highly unusual for German authorities to send Western Allied POWs to concentration camps, Buchenwald held a group of 168 aviators for two months. These men were from the

United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Jamaica. They all arrived at Buchenwald on Aug. 20, 1944. All were airmen that had crashed in occupied France.

Two explanations are given for them being sent to a concentration camp: Either they had managed to make contact with the French Resistance, some were disguised as civilians, and they were carrying false papers when caught; they were caught and categorized as spies, which meant their rights under the

Geneva Convention were not respected. Or, they had been designated as Terrorflieger ("terror aviators.”). These aviators were initially held in Gestapo prisons and headquarters in France. In April or August 1944, they and other Gestapo prisoners were packed into boxcars and sent to Buchenwald. The journey took five days, during which they received very little food or water.

A notable traitor within the French Resistance was Jacques Desoubrie, who was responsible for betraying

a significant number of Allied airmen, including Bill Ryherd, to the German authorities. The German Foreign Office expressed concern about shooting prisoners of war (POWs) and suggested enemy airmen suspected of being “terror aviators” not be given the legal status of POWs. Following this advice, the Gestapo and security police informed the Allied airmen they were criminals and spies. Using this justification, 168 allied airmen from Great Britain, United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Jamaica were taken by train in overcrowded cattle boxcars from Fresnes Prison outside Paris, to Buchenwald concentration camp. After five days in the boxcars, they arrived at Buchenwald on Aug 20, 1944. 1st Lt. Bill Ryherd’s Long Nightmare Begins

One haunting thought during World War II that would never leave the upper-most mind of any crewmember of an Allied plane flying over enemy territory was having to escape and evade in case they were shot down. Thousands of Allied fliers found themselves in such a predicament … on the ground, scurrying for a hiding place. Some successfully made it back to friendly territory; many others were captured or, worse, killed.

Does anyone else talk to their dog? I do.

When we go for a walk I talk to her just as though she were human. I talk to her about what a beautiful day it is and point out the lovely flowers. Or, I talk to her about what great dogs we have for neighbors and isn't it fun when she plays with them? Sometimes she looks at me quizzically and cocks her head to one side or t'other, as if pondering the thought.

I can't help but note the look of complete admiration she gives me with those big brown eyes of hers that always seem to say, "Why, that's brilliant! I would never have thought of that!" I've decided that wherever dogs go when they die, that's where I'd like to go. •••• POLL: Democrats in Congress

The dilemma facing downed fliers like Ryherd was: do I stay in uniform and try to get back to safety? Or, do I get into civilian clothes and blend into the society while making good my escape? The answer was easy, but getting into civilian clothes took them out of the security of the Geneva Convention rules and into the category of being a suspected spy. The late William H. “Bill” Ryherd of Oceanside spent three months in a hell-on-earth situation beginning in August 1944 when he was held as a prisoner in the infamous Buchenwald death camp in Nazi Germany. Ryherd found himself inside of one of Hitler’s worst concentration camps because he was captured wearing civilian clothes.

Ryherd, a native of Donna, Texas, was a pilot assigned to the U.S. 9th Air Force flying a B-26 out of England. He was shot down on his 36th mission on August 4, 1944. Ryherd was supposed to have taken a 10-day leave in Scotland after his 35th mission with the 598th Bombing Squadron of 397th Bombing Group flying out of Rivenhall, England. However, he delayed the leave so he could be part of a new type of bombing called “A-zone.”

Homer, a handsome dude, (well, he was no lyle davis, but still . . . ) walked into a sports bar around 9: 58 P.M. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV.

The 10: 00 news was now on. The news crew was covering a story of a man preparing to jump off a ledge of a tall building. The blonde looked at Homer and said, "Do you think he'll jump?"

Homer said, "You know, I bet he'll jump."

The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't." Homer placed 20 dollars on the bar and said, "You're on!"

Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her 20 dollars to Homer, saying, "Fair's fair. Here's your money." Homer replied, "I can't take your money; I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump."

The Winchester House A House of Mystery By Sam Lowe

SAN JOSE, California – Like many who have elevated themselves to achieve do-it-yourself subsistence, I am a tinkerer and a putterer. I patch holes, repair damaged windows and paint walls when they need it. So it's not difficult to imagine my excitement when, during a visit to San Jose, I visited the Winchester Mystery House. It is Utopia for fixer-uppers. As well as those who believe in ghosts.

The house has a colorful history, dating back to 1886, when construction began, all the way up to 1922, when the building process ended. In between, Sarah Winchester spent about $5.5 million (nearly $80 million in today's dollars) to keep workmen busy day and night, constructing staircases that led to dead ends, blank

There are several theories about the reason for this obsession. One is that Sarah, the widow of gun magnate William Winchester, thought the house was haunted by the ghosts of people who were killed by Winchester rifles and that the only way to keep them at bay was to trick them with the fake stairs and secret rooms. Another says that after her husband's demise, she consulted a medium who told her that as long as she kept building, she would never die. There were no blueprints and plans were changed almost every day. But money wasn't a problem because

A-zone was the first radio-directed bombs used in the War. The new device required the pilot to fly a steady course while the bombardier guided the bombs to their target. It turned out for Ryherd that skipping a vacation in Scotland was nearly a fatal decision. His bombing target was a bridge over the Seine River a few miles south of Paris. Two bursts of enemy flak ripped through Ryherd’s wing tank causing a fire. As long as fuel was leaking and the fire burning, Ryherd knew he was okay. It was when the tank was drained that vapors would explode. He had to act fast.

“I had my crew bail out. I tried to stay with it as long as I could, but soon after they were out, I got out of there myself.” Ryherd dropped out of his plane through the bomb bay doors at 12,000 feet using a chest parachute, which wouldn’t open. “I literally tore it open with my hands. About that time my plane blew up. I got out just in time.” Ryherd landed in an open French farmer’s field where workers were tilling the soil.

“I grabbed my chute and ran about a hundred yards into the woods. I didn’t know it at the time, but I had

Local Legend Felicita is "Star of the Month" - The "Star of the Month" at the Valley Center History Museum for October is not a celebrity or diplomat who once lived here. It's Felicita -- not the fictional heroine of the play or the main character in a book which took liberties with her life, but a local legend whose life provides a window into a time period that broken my ankle when I landed.”

A French resistance fighter happened to be one of the workers in the field. Neither spoke the other’s language, but the Frenchmen made himself understood by pointing to his watch. The farm worker/fighter would come back at midnight for the American airman. “This guy scooped up my chute and took off,” Ryherd chuckled. “I didn’t know whether he’d bring back help or the Germans.”

About midnight, the Frenchman returned with a comrade. Both were armed with automatic weapons. Ryherd tried getting up and out of his hiding place. It was difficult because he discovered, for the first time, his ankle was broken.

The trio traveled into a small village where a college professor hid Ryherd during the next few days. As relieved as Ryherd was that he was in the hands of the French resistance, he became nervous when the man who found him explained that “about 30 percent of the resistance fighters were loyal to France; about 30 percent to the Germans; and another 40 percent would play both sides of the fence depending upon circumstances. After several days of rest, the French moved Ryherd to another house where he found his co-pilot. From there, the French resistance fighters said it was possible to escape back to Allied lines from

many did not live through. To celebrate her life, a rare original photo of her is on exhibit at the museum.

The original “Felicita”

The local Felicita was a Native American maiden best known for the aid she and her father provided to wounded Americans during the Battle of San Pasqual in 1846. She was the daughter of Pantho, the last hereditary chief of the Kumeyaay. Felicita La Chappa, her true name, was known by most of the pioneer families in the area, and was a common sight in the region. Her life is remarkable because it illustrates California history from the Spanish mission era, the Mexican and pioneer eras, and on into the 20th century. The History Museum is spotlighting Felicita by exhibiting a large, original photograph of her (not shown here) that was donated to the museum. Her life and the fame she gained during the MexicanAmerican War were included in a 1917 book whose author acknowledged using creative license in depicting Felicita's life. A fictional outdoor pageant based on her life Paris by going west through the Pyrenees Mountains and into Spain. They drove into the French capital, which was still in German control. By this time the two Americans had changed into civilian clothing. “When we arrived in Paris, we could hear (General George) Patton’s big guns to the north of the city,” Ryherd said.

The resistance placed the two Yanks in a house in Paris where there was another Allied flier, a downed RAF pilot. The plan was to disguise all three fliers as part of a work gang of Frenchmen. Once outside of the city, they’d make their way to the Pyrenees Mountains and cross over into Spain … and freedom. “On the day we were to leave, a knock came on the door … one with the right code, but it was an hour early. It was one of the French resistance guys we’d met in Paris. I went downstairs. My co-pilot and the British flier were already waiting in the car. We headed out of Paris in the right direction (south). Suddenly the driver swerved with a hard turn driving us right into Gestapo headquarters.” Ryherd and his comrades were betrayed by a French resistance fighter called “Captain Jacque,”

was performed near Felicita County Park from 1927 to 1932.

Felicita's home was in San Pasqual Valley near Guejito Creek. There are various dates for her death, either 1911 or 1916, but all accounts indicate she was more than 100 years old. She was buried in a cemetery owned by the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians. At birth, her given name was Halah-wee, which was changed by padres who came to her village to baptize children. Felicita translates into "happiness". To see the original photograph of Felicita, visit the History Museum at 29200 Cole Grade Road. The museum is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 12 noon to 4 pm.

Sarah inherited more than $20 million upon here husband's death. She also received nearly 50 percent of his gun-making company, which gave her an income of about $1,000 a day. That would be about $40,000 per day in today's economy. So, for one reason or another, construction went on 24 hours a day for 38 years. But it didn't work. Sarah died on Sept. 5, 1922.

Some say the mansion is still haunted. Others insist that Sarah designed the house by following religious beliefs that had nothing to do with ghosts. Regardless of what's fact or fiction, the mansion still boggles the mind of those accustomed to normal architecture. Today, it's a tourist attraction listed on the National Register of Historic Places. But it's still eerie. Tour guides warn guests not to stray because they could get lost in the maze of 160 rooms that still exist. Twisting hallways still go on forever, leading to secret passageways in the walls, allegedly put there to confuse the ghosts. Although it's confusing on the inside, the exterior of the multi-story Queen Anne style Victorian mansion is beautiful. It is surrounded by gardens dotted with arbors and water foun-

the molestations of young girls, including a developmentally delayed 7-year-old who was unable to speak and could not communicate what was happening to her.

A Carlsbad man convicted of molesting four girls between the ages of 3 and 7 years old — victims who authorities said were provided by their babysitter — was sentenced last week to eight terms of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Some encounters were caught on multiple cameras at varying angles. There were recordings of four girls: two 7-year-olds, a 3-year-old, and a child who was about 3 years old at the time.

My Menage'-a-Troi

The beautiful Amber awakened me with a gentle kiss. On my nose. I had expected that from the vivacious Cindy but Amber was more urgently in need of my attention. It's a pleasant way to be awakened . . . a kiss on the nose.

And then to see two beautiful brown eyes looking deep into your soul. And to have another set of beautiful brown eyes also seeking your attention.

I guess I should point out, lest someone get the impression that I'm a bit of an old roue' . . an old reprobate . . . a rascally old gent with an eye for beautiful girls . . .

Among the evidence: hundreds of videos he had recorded of himself molesting victims. The incidents occurred between early 2014 and mid-2016.

Cabrera’s then-girlfriend, Brittney Lyon, is also charged. Authorities said Lyon, a babysitter, brought the children to him.

Carlsbad police, faced with other unknown victims on the tapes, took their investigation public in search of parents who’d hired Lyon, a San Marcos resident who had advertised her services on a babysitting website. One woman spotted a news story and reached out. She would learn from investigators that her 3-yearold daughter was on one of the tapes.

Samuel Cabrera Jr Carlsbad Police Department In October 2019, it took a North County jury about two hours to find him guilty of 35 charges related to

that Amber and Cindy are our two pups. (Granted, they are 11 year old pups . . but, to me, they'll always be pups).

I decided to sleep over at Evelyn's house Saturday night, knowing that the two girls were missing their mommy . . and with whom they slept with almost every night. So, just so they wouldn't remain lonely they now had my magnificent body to sleep next to.

We went to bed fairly early and Cindiy bless her heart, and as I knew she would, cuddled right up to me. That, too, is a great feeling. In a short amount of time she reverted to form and burrowed under the blankets there to remain for the rest of the night . . but still nestled up close to "daddy." Amber is the more elegant, sophisticated of the two. She jumped up on the bed but laid down about a foot away from me. And thus the menage'-a-trois was complete. Just the three of us.

Sometime during the night one of the two cats also jumped up on the bed. The second cat, Yum-Yum, wasn't quite sure what to make of this new human presence in the bed . . so she found another place to sleep.

I actually did not sleep very well . . . it was nice having a nice warm, loving body next to me . . but the bed was also rather crowded with

me, two pups and one cat. But I don't regret it. The girls enjoyed having a warm bed-mate . . and they knew that daddy would fix them breakfast in the morning and let them out into the back yard for their morning ablutions. And that's just what happened.

Evelyn must be missing her girls as well as was scheduled to return home Tuesday but is now trying to change her flight to come home tomorrow (Monday). It will be good to have dear old mom back. And I'll tell her all about my fantastic menage'-a-trois.

PS: She made it home safely and is once again spoiling our pups. •••• Hope you have or will read this week’s cover story by Tom Morrow on the late Bill Ryherd, a B-26 pilot who was shot down in Europe during the WWII dust-up.

Notice how the early morning hours don’t have quite as much sunshine until 7am or so? And how it starts getting dark so much earlier? And how that getting dark earlier is gonna get evenworse when that stupid Daylight Savings Time kicks in? And have you noticed the nights are a bit cooler for sleeping? Where just a few weeks ago you’d have the air condition and/or a fan on all night and you likely slept on top of the blankets?

(Jacques Desoubrie). This wouldn’t be the first time Jacques would betray Allied fliers. After the war, he would be tried as a war criminal and hanged. But, on this day in 1944, he would be responsible for sending Bill Ryherd to hell-on-earth. Ryherd couldn’t believe the betrayal by the Frenchman, but he remembered the caution another Frenchman had given him a few days before. It was true. “When we arrived at Gestapo Headquarters, there were German soldiers everywhere burning documents and scurrying around. They knew Patton was coming and they were trying to get out of our town.”

Ryherd was surprised their interrogation was so quick and even somewhat sloppy. The airmen confessed to being Allied fliers, but the Gestapo interrogator pointed out they were in civilian clothes and had no dog tags; so, they must be civilians. The trio was taken to a prison where some 3,000 French men and women were being held. It is ironic that Allied military politics prevented Ryherd and his comrades from being rescued by Allied forces liberating Paris. “Ike (General Dwight D.

Mr. Davis, I can't begin to tell you just how much entertainment that cover story brought all of us! And your newspaper reporter, Fredrick Gomez, is a keeper, in my book. He turned a major front cover story into a fun quiz! That story was not only shocking with its facts which we all learned about, but it was damned well entertaining because we chose teams with family members and neighbors and kept score during the multiple choice questions! Our Pastor Thomas Pierce even read some of those questions out loud for the congregation, especially about the dog that was elected honorary mayor in California!

Pastor Pierce often reads daily news stories and then turns them into a fun sermon for all of us. The children love our Pastor because he communicates with them on their own level. He told the Bible story of how the children loved to be around Jesus because he was joyful and fun (Mark 10:13-16 in which Jesus says: "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belong to such as these.").

Paris until General (Charles) de Gaulle could get into position to lead the Allied troops into the city. This delay gave the Germans a chance to ship all of us out of town on railroad cars to that prison (Buchenwald).” The next five days were a precursor to what lie ahead.

There was just one problem with that thinking. No one knew if there was an engine “pusher” at the rear of the train. If that was the case, the cow-catcher on the front of the second locomotive would grind up anyone laying on the tracks.

“An ol’ boy from Texas told me, as we were heading east toward Germany, that we were being taken to a concentration camp. I told him he was wrong, that the Germans knew who we were, and we’d surely be taken off the train in Frankfurt. Boy, was I wrong!”

Seven prisoners made good their escape. One was a U.S. flier, a friend of Ryherd’s. He learned later there was no “pusher” at the end of the train. “I found out later that guy made it back to England.”

Among the 2,000 men and 1,000 women jammed ninety-five-plus into railroad cars designed to hold only forty people, there were some 168 Allied fliers.

With more than 95 souls jammed into Ryherd’s boxcar, there was not enough room to do anything but stand. The train stopped from timeto-time for toilet breaks, off-loading, and re-loading the prisoners. About the second day out, Ryherd noticed a line forming in his car. He didn’t know what it was but figured it might be food. So, he stood in line for his share. He soon discovered it wasn’t food. “One of the Frenchmen found a loose board in the railroad car. It was just big enough to drop one person at a time out onto the track; so, if you lie prone until the train passed, you could get up and started running.” ING! Our congregation loves your weekly publication. And word is spreading like a prairie fire out here!

Your cover story "Do You Really Know California" (10/7/21 issue) was both incredible and fun to read. Only The Paper would have this type of exclusive reporting. And only The Paper would make it interactive for us readers to get involved with a fun quiz to take. All of us enjoyed it so much that we're hoping you do more of these types of cover stories with fun quizzes to make the reading irresistible. We have relatives in Orange County who read it online after we talked about it. Really hard to believe these amazing facts about our very own state of California. These historical truths really surprised us, since we're all native Californians and just never knew this.

“I was number nine, ready to go, and take my chances. The guy ahead of me chickened out and refused to go causing such a commotion the German guards in the next car heard us.”

The Germans were furious at losing the seven Allied prisoners. One of the guards announced that for every escapee, the next day five would be shot. Sure enough, the next day the train stopped in a country clearing, the doors were opened on Ryherd’s car, and one of the guards shouted, “Thirty-five of you get out!” Ryherd was near the door entrance and was forced out with the other thirty-four.

“I can tell you there were no atheists among us on that day. Everyone, except one, was saying their prayers. And the one who wasn’t was reading his New Testament.” Just then a group of German officers walked up inquiring as to what rilous disease is, unfortunately, worldwide. Thanks for sharing your own personal experiences Mr. Davis and openly talking about it. We're all not alone in facing this in our elderly communities. Keep up the good work.

Those of us who are inclined to claim ourselves as members of the male species usually lounge around on a couch, watching football, while the lady of the house has likely been up since 5am, cooking turkeys or ham, whipping up mashed taters, sweet corn, cranberry sauce, and biscuits.

We men tend to act as official tasters to ensure that the food is

was going on. After a quick huddle, the guards ordered the thirty-five back into the rail car. “You never saw thirty-five people move that fast,” he said.

Earlier, the thirty-five, including Ryherd, had been ordered to take off all their clothing. Even though it was August and hot during the day, the nights were quite cold. The group huddled together trying to draw warmth from each other. While stopped in a town just past the German border, a shot rang out. One of the guards had fired into Ryherd’s car. The shot had hit one of the prisoners in the hand. It wasn’t clear whether he was a Frenchman or Allied flier, but the Germans took him off the train and shot him in the back of the head and twice in the chest. “They (Germans) were proving to us they meant business,” Ryherd said. “When we got to Frankfurt, they gave us back our clothes.”

After five days of standing in the cramped rail cars, the train arrived at Buchenwald Concentration Camp on August 21, 1944, with the 3,000-plus prisoners. Buchenwald is located south and east of Berlin about fifty miles. It was one of the first death camps established by Hitler.

safe to consume for us, our family members, and friends and assorted animals that manage to look at you with pleading eyes that you simply can’t resist. Even though the lady of the house has given strict instructions to not share people food with animals we kind-hearted, generous, loving and caring men do the only proper thing. We share our food with the poor critters. As long as we stay out of the kitchen and out of the way of the Boss of the House She Who Must Be Obeyed tend to ignore our weaknesses for animals.

About the time the lady of the house finishes cleaning up the house and washing and drying all the dishes with little or no help from us men, it is . . . Christmas. While Thanksgiving does not require a great deal of running around, buying, buying, buying more and more gifts (most of which will soon be consigned to a closet) Christmas tasks the souls of men and women alike and is a taxing time (usually weeks, sometimes months) that involves planning, buying, and spending . . . . and then wrapping. Men are just no good at wrapping. Women are.

Best to stay out of women’s way come Christmas time. Scrooge had it right. Bah Humbug!

Allied Flyers in a Death Camp Cont. from Page 5

“The first thing the Germans did when we arrived was group us into five columns at ten people deep,” he explained. “Next, we were herded over to an area where Russian POWs were shaving every hair on every new prisoner head-to-toe. From there we walked down into a cattle-dip-affair for delousing.”

The prisoners were then given khaki jackets and pants, but no cap and no shoes. (The Soviet Union was not a signer of the Geneva Convention; hence Russian military personnel, when captured, were treated differently than other Allied POWs by being placed in the death camps).

Buchenwald was not designed for prisoners of war; however, it was built adjacent to a German ammunition factory … a big target which the Royal Air Force frequently found on nightly bombing raids. “We were called out frequently to fight fires after the bombing, and we were barefoot. One of our guys made some shoes from a couple of pieces of wood, but a German guard saw him and nearly beat him to death with a large wooden stick.” A few days after they arrived in Buchenwald, the 162 Allied fliers were moved into a large barracks where there were already some 250 or more young gypsy children, aged eight to 13 years, were being kept. “They were mean little guys. They’d steal anything worth stealing just to survive.”

Ryherd observed Germans loading the children onto two-railroad cars. He later learned they were gassed. “I saw that myself. I later learned one little guy escaped and ended up being educated in this country.”

Ryherd said the organization of the camp was fascinating. The German military guards were around the perimeter of the compound, but German civilian prisoners … not Jews … actually ran the camp inside. Jews were being gassed by day while the crematorium furnaces raged at night. But not everyone who was murdered was gassed. A group of British Secret Service agents who had been captured behind enemy lines working with the French resistance, were ceremoniously hung in front of all the prisoners during the evening roll call. The Geneva Convention rules didn’t apply to them either. “The German civilians running the inside of the camp realized who we were and kept us Americans out of going on the work details,” Ryherd recalled.

How the 168 prisoners got out of the death camp isn’t quite clear, but one of the most commonly told stories has a Russian POW on a work

detail informing the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) commandant at a nearby airfield that Allied fliers were being held at Buchenwald. The Luftwaffe commandant reportedly went to Buchenwald and demanded the fliers be turned over to him. When the S.S. commandant refused, the Luftwaffe commandant informed him he was a personal friend of Reichsmarshal Hermann Goring, the second-ranked Nazi behind Hitler, and that he would not want Allied airmen mistreated. The next day, all but one of the Allied fliers were turned over to the Luftwaffe commandant and directed to a camp just for Allied airmen. That camp was called Stalag Luft III. The flier left behind was in the camp hospital and reportedly died. “Word on the grapevine was that we were less than twenty-four hours from being executed. When we were interviewed by the S.S. right before our release from Buchenwald, we thought that was it. The next day, (Oct. 21, 1944), we were loaded onto trucks and taken to a train station.” From here, they were taken to Stalag Luft III … the famed camp where the “Great Escape” was attempted earlier that same year. Ryherd was housed in the RAF section of the compound.

Though they didn’t know each other at the time, there were two downed Allied fliers in that camp who eventually ended up living in North San Diego County. Both were on forced marches in the bitter winter from Stalag Luft III to Nuremberg in January 1945. One was Bill Ryherd; the other was the late John “Jack” Kellogg, of Vista. That forced march to Mooseburg could have been likened to a frozen version of the Bataan Death March in the Philippines that Americans had been forced by the Japanese to make in the opening days of the War.

After several weeks in Nuremberg, a city under constant Allied bombing attacks, the Allied POWs were finally moved to Mooseburg near Munich in southern Germany. It was in Mooseburg that General Patton’s Third Army finally caught up with Ryherd and Kellogg for their rescue. “When I saw him (Patton) riding up in his Jeep through the front gate, I thought he was the second coming … Jesus Christ himself. He gave a short speech and even apologized for being late,” Ryherd said laughing.

Post Script: This story would never have been told had it not been for Bill Ryherd’s wife who called this writer in 2006.

“He’s got a story to tell, but I’ve never heard it … he hasn’t talked about the War since he came home in 1945.”

Ryherd told me his story as we sat in his front living room, I noticed his wife and daughter in an upstairs balcony listening intently to him telling the gripping story for the first time. His wife knew something terrible had happened to her husband because of his nightmares down through the decades after the War.

Our Assembly District

Many people ask me what is the State Assembly and where is our district? I'm always proud to talk about our amazing district and the wonderful people who live here.

The 75th Assembly District, which I am honored to represent, is a "healthy" district - with avocados, citrus, grapes and sunshine for example. From San Marcos and Escondido to Temecula, and every rural community in-between, including De Luz, Pauma Valley, Fallbrook, Bonsall, and Valley Center, we are lucky to call this beautiful region home.

The ties that bind us are strong. Escondido and Temecula are both railroad towns dating back to the 1800s, with vibrant historic downtowns generating tourism and local business. Today, we’re tied together by the I-15 corridor, over which thousands commute daily to work, to shop, to attend college or just for pleasure. This district is the heart of San Diego agriculture, and helps secure the county’s spot as the 19th most productive agricultural county in the nation. Our agriculture adds millions of dollars to our economic vitality and needs to be preserved. Temecula’s wine country, with its outstanding reputation, also draws tourists from around the world. Our

agro-tourism industry has become a major economic driver, locally and for the entire state. The region’s Native American Tribes also make us unique. San Diego County has 18 Federally recognized tribal governments; more than any other county in the United States; eight of those lie within the 75th Assembly District, and five are gaming tribes. Tribal economies create thousands of jobs, generate millions in charitable contributions, and finance basic infrastructure including roads, bridges and public buildings. Tribal governments collaborate with nearby jurisdictions, and often provide badly-needed emergency services such as fire protection for the reservations and adjacent communities, essential for this fireprone region. I am honored to represent this unique community in Sacramento, and proud to call this beautiful district home!

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.

An Attack on North County Neighborhoods

Within days of the failed recall of Governor Newsom, with the flick of a pen, the Governor signed three bills that negatively impact neighborhoods in San Diego County. Let’s start with SB 9, a bill I’ve strongly opposed. The bill overrides local control, and the state now requires cities to allow single-family property owners to build an additional house, or one duplex on their currently zoned single family property lot. The bill also allows some homeowners to split a single-family lot to build two additional units on the other half. This means someone could potentially put 4 units right next door in a single-family neighborhood. Then, there’s SB 10, allowing buildings with up to 10 units within single family zoning, as long as they are in urban areas and near public transit hubs.

The final bill is SB 8, which limits local governments’ abilities to reduce any density standards on lots already zoned for or planned for residential use. This sets a dangerous precedent that could potentially leave it up to the State where we can

live and who will live next door.

I’m an adamant believer that we need more housing in San Diego County, especially so our young families can stay, work, and raise their families here. I believe government needs to stay out of the way when it comes to building more housing. Government is the biggest reason why housing is so expensive due to overregulation.

I also believe we need to leave the decisions up to the local government as to where is best to put housing. The State should not be telling local jurisdictions, where they can and cannot build housing. These new laws will dramatically alter the character of North County neighborhoods. North County residents need to understand, the state government is coming for your neighborhood. To contact

Q: I bought an Electrolux Side by Side refrigerator from Home Depot last month. Home Depot delivered it about two weeks later. It has not worked since. I tried to get the refrigerator to work for a week and then called Home Depot after it was clear that nothing could be done to make it function properly. The repair technician was a no-show for my first appointment. Electrolux rescheduled. A technician determined there were at least four things that weren't working and would have to order parts and return the following week. The repair person advised me to return the refrigerator to Home Depot because that would be a better outcome than waiting for it to be repaired.

Home Depot refused to take it back and said it was Electrolux's issue. Electrolux refused to let me replace it without first attempting to repair it. So, a week later, another technician came out. He said the parts he had been sent were wrong. He promised to have the correct part overnighted, a promise he failed to keep. Next week we will be at the month mark without a functioning refrigerator. The cost of spoiled food and a steady stream of takeout aside, I'm not sure you can imagine how difficult it is to try to run a household for weeks out of coolers and bags of ice. It is impossible.

If there is any way to have this refrigerator picked up and the amount I've paid refunded so that I can order a new and functional refrigerator, that would be wonderful. I have no confidence that this repair person can indeed resolve the issues. -- Myra Washington, Bountiful, Utah A: Do I even need to say this? Home Depot should have delivered a working refrigerator, and Electrolux should have quickly fixed your appliance. There, I said it.

You have a few things going on here. First, Home Depot deferred to Electrolux on the repair. And second, Electrolux has a policy to attempt a repair before replacement. Those rules make perfect sense -- except when they don't. Interestingly, when I tried to look up Home Depot's repair policy, the site directed me to a page where it tried to sell me a protection plan for my appliance. I checked your purchase, and it appears you didn't have one of its plans. That didn't matter. Home Depot and the manufacturer should have stood behind the purchase.

I reviewed the paper trail between you, Home Depot and Electrolux. It's a tortured back-and-forth between an increasingly desperate appliance owner and an intransigent customer "service" department. Honestly, the companies should be embarrassed by their behavior.

Q: I have a problem with Civitavecchia Shuttle, a ground transportation company in Italy. We decided to cancel our vacation in Rome last September and tried to get a refund for our shuttle reservations from Civitavecchia to Rome. I paid for all three reservations with my Visa credit card. But when I contacted Civitavecchia Shuttle, a representative told me that they were trying to refund the money to my PayPal account. I never used PayPal to make the shuttle reservation. I never canceled any payments in PayPal, or even know how to use it. I think I should be refunded to my original payment method unless for some reason they can't reimburse after this long of a time-lapse. Could you help me get my money back? -Maureen DiNafo, Delray Beach, Fla.

A: You're right, normally a business will refund your tickets to the original payment method. But these are not normal times. I reviewed the correspondence between you and Civitavecchia Shuttle. A representative kept asking you for your PayPal information, insisting that the refund was not a scam. (It wasn't.) But it looks like you rejected the money coming back from Civitavecchia Shuttle to a PayPal account.

I think what makes this problem so interesting is that I have a pile of cases where companies insisted -insisted! -- that they refund to the customers' original payment method. They did that even when the customers had closed their credit cards. I believe that in some instances, it was a ploy to keep their money. But to have the opposite problem - well, that's a "man-bites-dog" kind of story.

As far as I'm concerned, you should be able to receive a refund any way you want. Cash, credit, gold bullion. It doesn't matter. A company may choose to place restrictions on how it sends refunds, but that doesn't make it right.

It's important to be cautious about accepting money from strangers on PayPal. I have a lot of cautionary tales about scams like that on my consumer advocacy site, But it appears the company identified itself by name, so you should have known that it was Civitavecchia Shuttle. And the assurances offered by the representatives that is not a scam were believable. I think the pandemic just turned everything on its head, including refund processes. If I had to guess, I'd say Civitavecchia Shuttle made

The American Army’s Expedition to Russia

Here’s a story not often told … maybe not at all: when the U.S. Army invaded mother Russia. “The American Expeditionary Force (AEF) of North Russia,” also was known as the “Polar Bear Expedition.” It was a World War I contingent of some 5,000 U.S. Army troops which landed at the Russian port of Archangel on the White Sea. The U.S. Army unit fought the Russian revolutionists my (Bolsheviks) in the surrounding region during the period of September 1918 through to July 1919.

U.S. President Woodrow Wilson had sent the “Polar Bears” to Russia at the request of Great Britain and France to prevent stockpiles of Allied war materials from falling into German or Bolshevik hands. On July 14, 1918, the U.S. Army's 85th Division left their training camp at Camp Custer, Michigan, for the Western Front in France. Three days later, President Wilson agreed to limited participation by American troops with the stipulation they would only be used for “guarding” the stockpiled war material in Russia.

When U.S. Army Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing received the directive from Wilson, he changed the orders for units heading for France to be re-outfitted in England and sent to Russia. The U.S. troops arrived in Archangel on Sept. 4, 1918, coming under British command. Still, another long-forgotten World War I command was an AEF unit in Siberia, which had 7,950 American soldiers and officers sent to Vladivostok, Russia, at the same time the “Polar Bears” were headed for Archangel. When the British commanders of the Allied units arrived in Archangel on Aug. 2, 1918, they discovered the war materials already had been captured and moved by the retreating Bolshevik forces.

By the time American troops arrived one month later, for the next six weeks they were immediately put into combat action to aid in the rescue of a Czech unit. By the end of October 1918, the Allied troops were no longer able to maintain the offensive and acknowledged their fragile situation along with the rapid onset of the fierce Russian winter. They began a defensive posture.

During the winter the Bolsheviks went on the offensive inflicting numerous casualties and caused the Allies to retreat a considerable distance. While in Russia, the AEF suffered some 210 casualties, including at least 110 deaths from battle, about 30 miss-

ing in action, and 70 deaths from disease, 90 percent of which were caused by the Spanish flu. An October 1919 report gives the casualties as 553: 109 killed in battle; 35 died of wounds; 81 from disease; 19 from accidents/other causes; 305 wounded and 4 POWs.

Following the Armistice with Germany on Nov. 11, 1918, which ended World War I, AEF family members began writing letters to newspapers and circulating petitions to their Congressional representatives asking for the immediate return of the “Polar Bears” from northern Russia. Meanwhile, the American units were aware of the Armistice, and that the port of Archangel was frozen and closed to shipping. The morale of the American soldiers plummeted as they were asking why they were fighting Bolshevik soldiers in the first place.

On Feb. 16, 1919, under pressure, President Wilson directed the War Department to withdraw the AEF from Russia. On April 17, 1919, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Wilds P. Richardson arrived in Archangel with orders to withdraw “ the earliest possible moment."

In early June 1919, the bulk of the AEF in northern Russia sailed for home. The AEF in northern Russia officially disbanded on Aug. 5, 1919.

A year later President Warren G. Harding called the expedition a mistake blaming the Wilson administration.

After all of the expedition members had returned home “Polar Bear” veterans lobbied to obtain funds and the necessary approvals to retrieve the bodies of at least 125 of their comrades. By 1929, additional research found that 226 fallen "Polar Bears" had originally been buried in Russia with a total of 130 sets of U.S. remains still buried in Russia.

Hampered by the lack of diplomatic recognition between the United States and the Soviet Union, it took many years before they received permission for final retrieval. In the autumn of 1929, an expedition under the auspices of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) was successful in organizing and conducting a recovery mission. The VFW found, identified and brought home the remains of 86 U.S. soldiers. In 1934, an additional 14 body remains were shipped by the Soviet Union to the U.S., which reduced the number of U.S soldiers still buried in Russia to about 30. The remains of 56 AEF soldiers were eventually re-buried in plots surrounding the Polar Bear Memorial in Troy, Michigan. The last surviving “Polar Bear” was Harold Gunnes, born in 1899. He died on March 11, 2003.

in the series in which the title character has been played by seven actors. Unknown to many, however, Sean Connery, the original and the quintessential Bond, was not the first choice in 1962 when Ian Fleming's "Dr No" was being cast.

The first choice was longtime Valley Center resident Steve Reeves, movie star, world-class bodybuilder and local rancher. At the time Reeves was the most sought-after actor in Hollywood and the number one box office draw in 25 countries.

According to archives of the Valley Center Historical Society, housed at the Valley Center History Museum, both author Fleming and the film's producer offered Reeves $100,000 to play Bond. He turned it down. Reeves was already making $250,000 per film as "Hercules." The studio would go no higher than $100,000. At the time of the James Bond offer, Reeves was already living in Valley Center. He purchased a 14-acre ranch in 1957, and built a Spanish hacienda which would be his home for the next 43 years until his death of a blood clot 43 years later. He was 74. Reeves has 20 movies to his credit and won every major body-building championship in the world. When Connery was finally chosen for the role of James Bond he received $8,000. At the time, he was known as a minor bodybuilder with limited acting experience.

A permanent exhibition on the life of Reeves is in the Valley Center History Museum and profiles his career as an actor, rancher and bodybuilder. The museum is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 12 noon to 4 pm. For more information, visit or call 760749-2993. Carlsbad

Meet Fuchsia and Peach! They are a bonded pair of guinea pigs, so they need to go to a home where they can be together. They will need an extralarge enclosure and plenty of play time outside. They love to eat Timothy hay (and should be provided an unlimited amount), pellets, and fresh greens every day. They will also need Vitamin C supplements, as guinea pigs do not produce their own - bell peppers are a good source! Fuchsia and Peach are available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive. To learn more about making them part of your family, please visit or call 619-2997012. Online profile: 2b-bb8d-417a-ada7-b1e5b9214346 a n d 3a-35dc-4179-82e6-517f65ed0f01

Federal Funds Support Key Services

Earlier this year, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was signed into federal law. The City of Vista approved using its allotted $26 million in ARPA funds to create and support new programs to improve our residents’ lives and our local businesses. These programs will have a positive impact on our community and on our businesses that were disproportionally impacted by the pandemic. Recently, the City Council and I approved a list of ARPA-funded projects plans, which include modernizing Vista’s aging storm drain facilities and infrastructure; a business grant program for businesses impacted by the pandemic; a Downtown Clean & Safe program; providing Wi-Fi downtown; and offering a training program for new entrepreneurs and for established businesses.

the world was changing and left Kingan to start Van’s Restaurant Service in 1946. In those days every restaurant, school, hospital, industrial cafeteria and grocery stores did their own food processing. They bought bulk animal parts and processed the meat on site to create chops, roasts, hamburger etc to meet their menu requirements.

The America we grew up in

The September 23rd issue of “The Paper” featured a lead story by publisher Lyle Davis titled “I Miss The America I Grew Up In” It documented America’s deterioration as a world power and the leader of the free world. Like many Americans, we too miss the America we grew up in, not only for the America’s sad decline on the world stage but for the loss of civility and sense of community in our day to day relationships with one another.

Feeding the Allied forces during the WWII mandated the creation of large, efficient food processing entities. My Dad was a salesman for local meatpacker, Kingan and Company. As the war wound down in 1945, Kingan offered Dad the Eastern Indiana sales territory and our growing family moved from New Jersey to Indiana. Dad saw that

To Buy or Not To Buy. What was the Question?

Do I Really Need Pet Health Insurance?

Van’s Restaurant Service took the large cuts of beef and pork from the major “packing plants” and processed them to create custom cut and portion controlled serving sized products. The restaurants and institutions no longer needed meat processing facilities or meat cutters. Dads business was an immediate success.

Post war America was a very different place than today. We were a nation of neighborhoods. You wouldn’t drive across town to get a haircut. There were no chain restaurants or supermarkets. Household shopping was done within walking distance of your home. There was at least one small grocery store within two blocks of nearly every non-farm home in America. The woman of the house, little kids in tow, walked to the store to pick up groceries every day or two. She stopped to talk to neighbors along the way and visited with the shopkeeper and more neighbors at the store. Professionals like Doctors, Lawyers and Dentists didn’t do media ads. It would have been regarded as bad taste to boast about yourself and your business because all your colleagues were friends. Businesses thrived on referrals as a result of good work. Life was good, the neighborhoods were safe and

The RVT (Registered Veterinary Technician) who said that had plenty of stories about people who got to their Vet’s office with sick or injured pets, but no way to pay for treatment. Not to shock anybody, but Veterinary medicine is a business. It’s not a charity. You pay for services rendered.

She also had stories about families who adopted pets with no plan for regular medical care, much less emergency care. When you run into the vet’s office or emergency hospital carrying Fido or Fluffy, it’s already too late to figure out how you’re going to pay.

friendly and you probably didn’t even know whether your neighbors voted Republican or Democrat.

Through the sixties and seventies America continued to evolve. We became more mobile and one by one the lights went out in our neighborhood grocery stores as supermarkets came to town. Suburban shopping plazas became commercial hubs for retail shopping. Local restaurants lost ground to national chains. Large scale restaurant and institutional food services reduced the need for local food processing services like our family business. Our economy was becoming far more efficient for sure, but we lost something in the process. We no longer had a “connection” with the people with whom we com-

puppy. It was for emergency care ONLY. NOT annual exams, vaccinations, or dog license.

The plan worked pretty well when her Great Dane mix puppy was young and healthy. But as he got older and grew to the size of a small horse, he began to develop skin tags, fatty tumors, and other lumps and bumps. When her medical bank account dwindled, she looked into Pet Insurance. Pet insurance in the United States is a pretty new concept for many of us. Only about 50% of the pet owners here have pet insurance. In Europe 85% of pet owners have pet insurance.

The people I spoke with say they took a long time to decide whether or not to buy pet insurance. But when they needed it, they REALLY needed and were glad they had it. You may have seen the Facebook post from the lady who thought it was really funny when her dog helped himself to a birthday cupcake. She posted a picture of her big, furry, love of her life with frosting on his face and crumbs scattered everywhere. Unfortunately, he also ate the plastic wrap on top of the cake. Several days and a few thousand dollars later, she posted a picture of her dog with a shaved belly and stitches. She asked “Can anybody tell me about pet insurance?” What is pet health insurance? The people I spoke with compared it to

merced. Many folks who didn’t live through the sixties and seventies probably don’t miss that feeling of “neighborhood connection” but many “seniors” do.

Fast forward to today and there are still professionals services and small business that thrive on personal contact. Among them barber shops, beauty parlors, chiropractors and at least one computer store. We spent over thirty years in the corporate world doing what the corporations told us to do, but we never forgot our neighborhood in Indiana and the small businesses that served our needs. For the past two decades we’ve been able to make a living helping our neighbors use computers to make their lives better. It just doesn’t get much better than that.

their own health insurance. You subscribe for your pet. When you need treatment, you turn the bills to your pet insurance company and they cover part of the cost. With some insurance, you pay the full cost, then submit the bills. The insurance company reimburses you. How much they pay depends on the plan you bought.

Do you need pet health insurance? If you have a young, healthy pet who isn’t going to eat a wrapped birthday cake (or the kitchen towel you wiped your hands on while making hamburger or a Christmas ornament or that pill that rolled under the cabinet) you might be able to get by for a while. Most Vets agreed that, sooner or later, you’re going to need pet health insurance and it will pay off. Do all Vets accept pet insurance? Pet insurance is as much of a new concept for many Vets as it is for pet owners. Most of them are open to the idea. Some even have staff members who can handle the paperwork for you. They make it really easy. That’s something that you might want to ask about before you need to use your insurance.

My friend Stacey is a longtime animal rescuer. She’s been doing it for years and has lost count of how many pets she has matched with their new families. When I asked her about pet insurance, she said

that she has it for her “pack” at home and she encourages adopters to look into pet health insurance.

Stacey is a sharp cookie. Super smart. I asked her how she chose the insurance that she has for her own dogs. I was expecting her to tell me about comparing one company to another, customer reviews, and veterinarian recommendations. Nope. Stacey said, “I picked up a brochure in my Vet’s lobby.”

She really appreciated her pet insurance when one of her dogs had a serious medical issue with bills running into the thousands. There’s the emotional part that we all deal with as pet parents. Our cats and dogs can’t tell us how they feel or what they want us to do. We’re asking ourselves if we could have done more of if we should have done something differently. Stacey said that, knowing her insurance was going to pay a large part of the bills, made it easier for her to make decisions. With her insurance, Stacey paid the bills as they came in. Her Vet’s office provided her with the paperwork she needed to submit. The insurance company reimbursed her for the amount of her coverage. She was a happy dog mom.

Nick Adamo is an agent for Farmers Insurance. Nick says that pet insurance is becoming more popular every day. Lots of people automatically add it when they insure their houses or cars. Who better to hit up with the questions that most people have about pet insurance?

Are all animals eligible for pet health insurance, or is it just for dogs and cats? Nick says you can forget about pet health insurance for your horse, snake, rat, or fish. Cats and Dogs only.

Should pet owners get insurance right away when they get a new pet? Should they insure them when they’re puppies and kittens, or wait until they become adolescents, adults, or seniors?

In his experience, Nick says the best thing to do is get the insurance right away. Why? The younger and healthier your pet is, the cheaper the insurance is. Also, there are a lot of shots and medical things that need to be done with in the first couple of years. He mentioned vaccinations and that the Parvo and Rabies shots that you’re going to need along the way are covered by your insurance. It’s pretty common for adventurous puppies or kittens to get injured. We’ve always been told that curiosity killed the cat. Many puppy injuries happen for the same reason. They’re too curious and they go off on adventures. Nick says, “This is the time when they eat the wrong thing or get into things that are not dog or cat friendly. That is why the pet insurance is so important. Hesitance of taking your pet to the vet goes out the door, because you have the insurance that will help you if it’s a medical emergency.” Does a pet ever get too old to qualify for insurance? Is there a point where the cost of insurance does not justify the benefits? (One of my friends dropped the pet insurance when her 13 year old dog developed a terminal illness. She said the cost of his insurance was more than the medical costs to keep him comfortable.)

The cost of the insurance does go up with the age and health of the pet. Is it worth it? If you have insurance for an older pet with major health problems, you’ll probably be more likely to get the medical procedures done early instead of waiting until the problems as worse and the treatment is more expensive. “Once you get all the big things out of the way, it would be time to cancel the plan, but you would get everything taken care of early and that is what we want, so you don't wait and have the pet suffer because you don't want to spend the money till you have to.” Does it pay to shop around? What should you do if you just want someone to answer your questions?

Nick says, “Pet insurance is almost all the same when it comes to price and coverage. The best thing to do is go to the online website and shop around. You can always call me for help.”

One of my fellow animal lovers said he had been looking into insurance for his senior Retriever (who still acts like a 2 year old puppy) and the 17 pound Maine Coon Cat who showed up on his porch a few years ago and made himself at home. He asked if most veterinarians accept pet insurance, or if his vet didn’t accept insurance, would he have to switch vets? He liked his vet and wanted to stay with her.

Staying with a vet or clinic that you like has lots of benefits. You get to know the doctors and their staff members. They get to know you and

your pets. All the information about your pet, including vaccination records, is in their system. It’s like your own personal team that is all working together to take the best care of your pet. It’s okay to ask your teammates how the game is played. Ask your Vet if they accept or prefer a certain pet insurance company. 95% of the veterinarians say that they not only accept pet insurance, but they really like it when a client has insurance. Like Nick was saying earlier, pet owners with insurance tend to seek treatment sooner, rather than waiting until a small problem becomes a big problem. What’s not to like about that? A side note. As a guy who has spent nearly half of my adult life working at animal shelters, one of the saddest things I see is when a pet comes in because their owner has died or gone into an extended care facility with no plans for the care of their pet.

People assume that a family member, friend, or neighbor will take their pet and treat it as their own. Unfortunately, that’s often not the case. In the worst-case scenarios, the pets get kicked out the back door to fend for themselves. Some of the lucky ones are surrendered to shelters or rescues.

There are also the situations where a well-meaning friend or neighbor wants to take the pet but has no legal rights. There’s no will or estate plan expressing the owner’s

wishes. The pet is taken away by a relative or governmental agency then seems to disappear.

Have a plan and put it in writing. Keep in mind that the situation might change for a person who says they’ll take your pet. When the time comes, they might no longer be able to take your pet. Have a backup plan. Then have a backup plan to the backup plan. Our pets are part of our lives. We are their whole lives. Let’s deserve that.
