You Want to Be Buried at Sea? It Can Be Done

By Lt Col George Goodson, USMC (Ret)

We were recently surprised to learn that, while not common, burials at sea for civilians is readily available.

In my 87th year, the events of my life appear to me, from time to time, as a series of vignettes. Some were significant; most were trivial. War is the seminal event in the life of everyone that has endured it. Though I fought in Korea and the Dominican Republic and was wounded there, Vietnam was my war.

Many notable people have chosen burial at sea such as Robin Williams, Steve McQueen, Rock Hudson, John F. Kennedy, Jr as well as many thousands of others.

The scattering of cremated remains (cremains) at sea has been done for quite some time but the burial at sea of a casketed decedent is both legal and readily available for those interested.

Now 42 years have passed and, thankfully, I rarely think of those days in Cambodia, Laos, and the panhandle of North Vietnam where small teams of Americans and Montagnards fought much larger elements of the North Vietnamese Army. Instead I see vignettes: some exotic, some mundane:

An increasing number of people are choosing cremation and/or burial at sea for their funeral selection for a variety of reasons. Not only is it significantly less expensive, rich in nautical background and preserves land usage, but is a celebration of life – saying goodbye in a peaceful beautiful setting. The ocean is majestic and surrounds all on it with beauty.

(They include) My two years as Casualty Notification Officer in North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland.

It was late 1967. I had just returned after 18 months in Vietnam. Casualties were increasing. I moved my family from Indianapolis to Norfolk, rented a house, enrolled my children in their fifth or sixth new school, and bought a second car. A week later, I put on my uniform and drove 10 miles to Little Creek, Virginia. I hesitated before entering my new office. Appearance is important to career Marines. I was no longer, if ever, a poster Marine. I had returned from my third tour in Vietnam only 30 days before. At 5'9," I now weighed 128 pounds 37 pounds below my normal weight. My uniforms fit ludicrously, my skin was yellow from malaria medication, and I think I had a twitch or two. I straightened my shoulders, walked into the office, looked at the nameplate on a Staff Sergeant's desk and said, "Sergeant Jolly, I'm Lieutenant Colonel Goodson. Here are my orders and my Qualification Jacket."

Sergeant Jolly stood, looked carefully at me, took my orders, stuck out his hand; we shook and he asked, "How long were you there, Colonel?" I replied "18 months this time."

Jolly breathed, "you must be a slow learner Colonel."

I smiled.

Jolly said, "Colonel, I'll show you to your office and bring in the Sergeant Major.”

I said, "No, let's just go straight to his office."

Jolly nodded, hesitated, and lowered his voice, "Colonel, the Sergeant Major. He's been in this job two years. He's packed pretty tight. I'm worried about him." I nodded.

Jolly escorted me into the Sergeant Major's office. "Sergeant Major, this is Colonel Goodson, the new Commanding Office.”

The Sergeant Major stood, extended his hand and said, "Good to see you again, Colonel." I responded, "Hello Walt, how are you?"

Jolly looked at me, raised an eyebrow, walked out, and closed the door. I sat down with the Sergeant Major. We had the obligatory cup of coffee and talked about

mutual acquaintances. Walt's stress was palpable. Finally, I said, "Walt, what's the hell's wrong?"

He turned his chair, looked out the window and said, "George, you're going to wish you were back in Nam before you leave here. I've been in the Marine Corps since 1939. I was in the Pacific 36 months, Korea for 14 months, and Vietnam for 12 months. Now I come here to bury these kids. I'm putting my letter in. I can't take it anymore."

I said, "OK Walt. If that's what you want, I'll endorse your request for retirement and do what I can to push it through Headquarters Marine Corps." Sergeant Major Walt Xxxxx retired 12 weeks later. He had been a good Marine for 28 years, but he had seen too much death and too much suffering. He was used up. Over the next 16 months, I made 28 death notifications, conducted 28 military funerals, and made 30 notifications to the families of Marines that were severely wounded or missing in action. Most of the details of

Burial at Sea Continued on Page 2

For the scattering of ashes, a variety of locations off the San Diego Coast such as Point Loma, La Jolla, Ocean Beach Pier, Crystal Pier, off Cabrillo Monument on Point Loma are all available. If you have a specific location to scatter arrangements can be made. If, however, you wish a full burial at sea with casketed remains, the burial must occur within the maritime cemetery which is a designated location off the coast of California. The disposition can be simple, with only one or two family members on board the boat . . . or it can be larger, with accommodations for larger families and friends who wish to witness the commitment of the departed into the depths of the Pacific Ocean.

If you are a military veteran, of any branch, you are entitled to a free burial at sea, courtesy of the US Navy. Most local funeral directors are familiar with this procedure and have the necessary contacts. Detailed information is provided at the end of this article. We spoke with several local people

those casualty notifications have now, thankfully, faded from memory. Four, however, remain. MY FIRST NOTIFICATION

My third or fourth day in Norfolk, I was notified of the death of a 19 year old Marine. This notification came by telephone from Headquarters Marine Corps.

The boy's family lived over the border in North Carolina, about 60 miles away. I drove there in a Marine Corps staff car. Crossing the state line into North Carolina , I stopped at a small country store / service station / Post Office. I went in to ask directions. Three people were in the store. A man and woman approached the small Post Office window. The man held a package. The Storeowner walked up and addressed them by name, "Hello John. Good morning Mrs. Cooper." I was stunned. My casualty's next-of-kin's name was John Cooper! I hesitated, then stepped forward and said, "I beg your pardon. Are you Mr. and Mrs. John Cooper of (address)?"

The father looked at me-I was in uniform - and then, shaking, bent at the waist, he vomited. His wife looked horrified at him

and then at me. Understanding came into her eyes and she collapsed in slow motion. I think I caught her before she hit the floor. The owner took a bottle of whiskey out of a drawer and handed it to Mr. Cooper who drank. I answered their questions for a few minutes. Then I drove them home in my staff car. The storeowner locked the store and followed in their truck. We stayed an hour or so until the family began arriving. I returned the storeowner to his business. He thanked me and said, "Mister, I wouldn't have your job for a million dollars." I shook his hand and said; "Neither would I."

I vaguely remember the drive back to Norfolk. Violating about five Marine Corps regulations, I drove the staff car straight to my house. I sat with my family while they ate dinner, went into the den, closed the door, and sat there all night, alone. My Marines steered clear of me for days. I had made my first death notification. THE FUNERALS

Weeks passed with more notifications and more funerals. I borrowed Marines from the local Marine Corps Reserve and taught them to conduct a military funeral: how to carry a casket, how to fire the volleys and how to fold the flag. When I pre--George Bernard Shaw

7. Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. --P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian 8.

sented the flag to the mother, wife, or father, I always said, "All Marines share in your grief." I had been instructed to say, "On behalf of a grateful nation...." I didn't think the nation was grateful, so I didn't say that. Sometimes, my emotions got the best of me and I couldn't speak. When that happened, I just handed them the flag and touched a shoulder. They would look at me and nod. Once a mother said to me, "I'm so sorry you have this terrible job." My eyes filled with tears and I leaned over and kissed her. ANOTHER NOTIFICATION

Six weeks after my first notification, I had another. This was a young PFC. I drove to his mother's house. As always, I was in uniform and driving a Marine Corps staff car. I parked in front of the house, took a deep breath, and walked towards the house. Suddenly the door flew open, a middle-aged woman rushed out. She looked at me and ran across the yard, screaming "NO! NO! NO! NO!" I hesitated. Neighbors came out. I ran to her, grabbed her, and whispered stupid things to reassure her. She collapsed. I picked her up and carried her into the house. Eight or nine neighbors followed. Ten or fifteen minutes later, the father came in followed by ambulance personnel. I

16. What this country needs are more unemployed politicians --Edward Langley, Artist (1928-1995) 17. A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. --Thomas Jefferson

FIVE BEST SENTENCES

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation! Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I. Understanding life

have no recollection of leaving. The funeral took place about two weeks later. We went through the drill. The mother never looked at me. The father looked at me once and shook his head sadly. ANOTHER NOTIFICATION

One morning, as I walked in the office, the phone was ringing. Sergeant Jolly held the phone up and said, "You've got another one, Colonel."

I nodded, walked into my office, picked up the phone, took notes, thanked the officer making the call, I have no idea why, and hung up. Jolly, who had listened, came in with a special Telephone Directory that translates telephone numbers into the person's address and place of employment. The father of this casualty was a Longshoreman. He lived a mile from my office. I called the Longshoreman's Union Office and asked for the Business Manager. He answered the phone, I told him who I was, and asked for the father's schedule. The Business Manager asked, "Is it his son?" I said nothing. After a moment, he said, in a low voice, "Tom is at home today."

I asked what was he doing. He replied that he was working on "Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, aluminum and steel under a constrained environment". I was really impressed... Damn this man is educated. Upon further inquiry, I learned that he was washing dishes with hot water... under his wife's supervision. He has just started work for CNN.

Will Rogers Sayings - Never Squat With Your Spurs On!

(Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash in Alaska with bush pilot, Wiley Post, was one of the greatest political/country/cowboy sages ever known.) Some of his sayings:

1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco. 2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day. 3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither works.

4. Never miss a good chance to shut up. 5. Always drink upstream from the herd.

I said, "Don't call him. I'll take care of that." The Business Manager said, "Aye, Aye Sir," and then explained, "Tom and I were Marines in WWII."

I got in my staff car and drove to the house. I was in uniform. I knocked and a woman in her early forties answered the door. I saw instantly that she was clueless. I asked, "Is Mr. Smith home?" She smiled pleasantly and responded, "Yes, but he's eating breakfast now. Can you come back later?" I said, "I'm sorry. It's important. I need to see him now."

She nodded, stepped back into the beach house and said, "Tom, it's for you."

A moment later, a ruddy man in his late forties, appeared at the door. He looked at me, turned absolutely pale, steadied himself, and said, "Jesus Christ man, he's only been there three weeks!"

Months passed. More notifications and more funerals. Then one day while I was running, Sergeant Jolly stepped outside the building and gave a loud whistle, two fingers in his

Another call from Headquarters Marine Corps. I took notes, said, "Got it." and hung up. I had stopped saying "Thank You" long ago. Jolly, "Where?"

Me, "Eastern Shore of Maryland. The father is a retired Chief Petty Officer. His brother will accompany the body back from Vietnam."

Jolly shook his head slowly, straightened, and then said, "This time of day, it'll take three hours to get there and back. I'll call the Naval Air Station and borrow a helicopter. And I'll have Captain Tolliver get one of his men to meet you and drive you to the Chief's home." He did, and 40 minutes later, I was knocking on the father's door. He opened the door, looked at me, then looked at the Marine standing at parade rest beside the car, and asked, "Which one of my boys was it, Colonel?"

I stayed a couple of hours, gave him all the information, my office and home phone number and told him to call me, anytime. He called me that evening about 2300 ( 11:00PM ). "I've gone through my boy's papers and found his will. He asked to be buried at sea. Can you make

CRAIG MISSAKIAN

CRAIG MISSAKIAN is a well-known trial lawyer and former state and federal prosecutor. During his 15 years in law enforcement, he earned national and international attention for prosecutions that included terrorism and environmental crimes, software piracy, organized crime, and public corruption.

In 2007, Mr. Missakian co-tried the case of Chi Mak, a Chinese national who headed up a spy ring that included several members of Mak's immediate family and that targeted some of the U.S. Navy’s most closely guarded technologies. Commentator LOU DOBBS described it as the most significant espionage prosecution in a generation. In 2014, he was asked to serve as one of the

I said, "Yes I can, Chief. I can and I will." My wife who had been listening said, "Can you do that?"

I told her, "I have no idea. But I'm going to break my ass trying."

I called Lieutenant General Alpha Bowser, Commanding General, Fleet Marine Force Atlantic, at home about 2330, explained the situation, and asked, "General, can you get me a quick appointment with the Admiral at Atlantic Fleet Headquarters?"

General Bowser said, "George, you be there tomorrow at 0900. He will see you.”

I was and the Admiral did. He said coldly, "How can the Navy help the Marine Corps, Colonel."

I told him the story. He turned to his Chief of Staff and said, "Which is the sharpest destroyer in port?"

The Chief of Staff responded with a name. The Admiral called the ship, "Captain, you're going to do a burial at sea. You'll report to a Marine Lieutenant Colonel Goodson until this mission is completed."

He hung up, looked at me, and said, "The next time you need a ship, Colonel, call me. You don't

have to sic Al Bowser on my ass."

I responded, "Aye Aye, Sir," and got the hell out of his office.

I went to the ship and met with the Captain, Executive Officer, and the Senior Chief. Sergeant Jolly and I trained the ship's crew for four days. Then Jolly raised a question none of us had thought of. He said, "These government caskets are air tight. How do we keep it from floating?" All the high priced help including me sat there looking dumb. Then the Senior Chief stood and said, "Come on Jolly. I know a bar where the retired guys from World War II hang out."

They returned a couple of hours later, slightly the worst for wear, and said, "It's simple; we cut four 12" holes in the outer shell of the casket on each side and insert 300 lbs of lead in the foot end of the casket. We can handle that, no sweat."

The day arrived. The ship and the sailors looked razor sharp. General Bowser, the Admiral, a US Senator, and a Navy Band were on board. The sealed casket was brought aboard and taken below for modification. The ship got underway to the 12-fathom depth. The sun was

Fatal Traffic Collision Carlsbad

On Friday,, October 13, at 6:36 p.m., Officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to Rancho Santa Fe Road north of Camino De Los Coches regarding a report of a motorcycle that collided into the rear of another vehicle. Upon arrival, Officers found a 2017 Harley Davidson Motorcycle with extensive damage resting on its side directly behind a dark colored sedan. As the Officers approached the motorcycle, they found a male driver on the ground. Officers also located a female passenger that had been ejected from the motorcycle a short distance away. Carlsbad Fire Department arrived and provided advanced life support to the female passenger of the motorcycle. Carlsbad Fire Department transported both riders to an area hospital where the female passenger sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision. The driver of the 2017 Harley Davidson Motorcycle has been identified as a 30-year-old male from San Marcos. The female was identified as a 34-year-old

Fatal Traffic Collision Escondido

On Firday, October 13, at about 9:38 PM officers responded to a serious injury collision at the intersection of El Norte Parkway and Ash. Officers arrived just minutes later and discovered a two vehicle collision. The collision involved a 1997 Saturn and a 2017 Toyota Yaris. The driver of the Saturn suffered major injury and died at the scene. There were two occupants in the Toyota. Both occupants were transported to Palomar Hospital by Escondido Fire paramedics. Both were treated and later released with minor injuries.

Based on the witness statements and physical evidence at the scene it appears the Saturn was traveling east on El Norte Parkway at a high rate of speed. The driver lost control and crossed into west bound traffic lanes. The Toyota was traveling west on El Norte parkway being driven by a 23-year-old female. The two vehicles collided just west of the intersection. The driver of the Saturn has dealing in REO’s (real estate owned by banks) where we would help banks dispose of properties they had acquired. We were just getting started, becoming known and respected within the banking community when Steve received an offer to become president of a bank in Rancho Bernardo.

I was happy for him for this career opportunity but I loved working with the big lug and was sorry to see him leave. As so often happens in friendships, people accept new job offers, they move away, and you lose contact. But you never lose the close personal feelings that you have for a dear friend. When Chuck Voelker, Steve’s son, told me last week that his dad had died after a lengthy illness, it was like a bolt out of the blue. And a painful one.

We’ve been on quite an emotional roller coaster of late. In addition to the news of Steve’s passing, we’ve had my eldest son lose his right foot to amputation, due, in part, to diabetes and its complications. That was tough on Scott - but it’s also been tough on his mother, his brother, and me.

We have another family member who has health issues we need to deal with - so now there are two family members who need looking after. It’s strange how emotions affect us.

Letters to the Editor The Library Issue

Dear Editor:

Despite the recent admonishment by a San Diego newspaper editorial to conduct itself in an above board manner, Escondido Mayor Abed and his henchman, Jeff Epp, used the occasion of an October 4 town hall meeting to broadcast statements bordering on unmitigated blarney. By arguing that a proposed contract with an outsourcing vendor 'protects the city's control and public interest' in Escondido Public Library, the mayor deliberately camouflages two facts --- the city lacks legal authority to run the library, and the public already has

were very close but he was 92 and ready to pass away, most likely welcoming it. I didn’t cry when mom died, at age 88.

It seemed the natural order of things; something that was expected and could be accepted more easily emotionally.

I’ve had several dogs named Trixie. I cried when Trixie, our dog, died some 25 years ago. And I cried when Bill Hanson, the well known realtor and my tennis partner and/or opponent, died.

And I cried when Carl Reynolds, my best friend died. Emotions. It’s hard to explain them, or understand them. But they are there and can be a powerful force in our lives.

I seldom get depressed . . . but I had two or three days of depression when Scott went through his food amputation. But, we, he and I, and the family, have bounced back and now we are ready to take on the challenges of the world. Just don’t you go and die on me. I kinda like having your around. And I don’t wanna cry anymore. Letters to the Editor?

hot. The ocean flat. The casket was brought aft and placed on a catafalque. The Chaplain spoke. The volleys were fired. The flag was removed, folded, and I gave it to the father. The band played "Eternal Father Strong to Save." The casket was raised slightly at the head and it slid into the sea. The heavy casket plunged straight down about six feet. The incoming water collided with the air pockets in the outer shell. The casket stopped abruptly, rose straight out of the water about three feet, stopped, and slowly slipped back into the sea. The air bubbles rising from the sinking casket sparkled in the sunlight as the casket disappeared from sight forever ....

The next morning I called a personal friend, Lieutenant General Oscar Peatross, at Headquarters Marine Corps and said, "General, get me out of here. I can't take this anymore." I was transferred two weeks later. I was a good Marine but, after 17 years, I had seen too much death and too much suffering. I was used up. Vacating the house, my family and I drove to the office in a two-car convoy. I said my goodbyes. Sergeant Jolly walked out with me. He waved at my family, looked at me with tears in his eyes, came to attention, saluted, and said,

His first wife died two weeks after the birth of their first child; the second wife, he was married to for 21 years; the third and present wife, whom he married in 1989, is 88, and teaches water aerobics three times a week. He describes Geri, his wife, as “the love of my life.”

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.' Epilogue

We spoke with Colonel Goodson by phone in order to secure his permission to publish this story, which he readily granted.

The Colonel and his wife live comfortably today in an Atlanta suburb, Sandy Springs, Ga. He stays in shape by lifting weights daily; his wife with her water aerobics.

In the course of our wide ranging conversation, we learned more about this Marine.

He had been selected for promotion to full Colonel when his then-wife gave an ultimatum. “You’ve been away from home too long,” she said, “it’s time to hang it up. You need to decide, it’s either the Marine Corps or me.”

In his retirement years he writes. He has put together a series of memoirs which I asked him to share with me and he assured me he’d send me copies to review.

“So,” said the Colonel, “I turned in my letter of resignation. I then got a call from the Commandant of the Marine Corps saying, “George, what are you doing? You were on track to become General!”

Given the compelling story of “Burial at Sea,” I would hazard a guess that we’ll likely be publishing more of Colonel Goodson’s work. To Colonel Goodson and all Marines, everywhere, “Semper Fi!”

I explained the circumstances to him and he reluctantly allowed me to resign from the Corps.

Two weeks later my wife sued for divorce. She wanted to run

Richard Jungas, owner of California Funeral Alternatives, 760.737.2890, has provided disposition of cremains at sea for some time. He is also able to offer full body commitments to the sea as well. He normally contracts with a service in either Long Beach or Dana Point that has boats and equipment especially designed for this type of service, as does Allen Brothers Mortuary of San Marcos and Vista (760.744.4522).

The preparation for the service is comparable to regular funeral preparation, probably around $4000 to $5000. The boat and ocean disposition facilities would run another $1500 to $1800 depending on where the disposition is and the number of family and friends who wish to attend and witness the commitment ceremony. Naturally, there are no costs for cemetery lots or crypts with a burial at sea.

Retired Pastor Richard Huls also has provided this service. He, too, regularly provides a scattering of ashes at sea but also will conduct a burial at sea. He works with area funeral directors in making the arrangements. You can reach Pastor

expressed and continues to express prodigious opposition to the very idea. In the past this mayor who spearheaded the destruction of the only branch library now blathers on about million-dollar savings and a 'vibrant' new look to the remaining main public library. For an elected public official who years back on a tour of this library did not know how long books could be checked out for, this misrepresentation sounds merely like more nonessential rhetoric.

Epp's representations are no more accurate than the mayor's. The city manager apparently suffering from color blindness saw 'no red flags' in the damning audit from a public library district in Jackson County, Oregon, arguing that the 'overwhelming majority of evidence' supports the vendor's record of service not just there but elsewhere. Poppycock! More than 18 states in America this century alone have canceled contracts with this vendor or rejected outright offers to run their libraries. Hawaii even passed legislation as a result of harm to their state library system due to a recommendation made by the vendor. The city council's problem with underfunded pension liability must

Water for Tribal Lands

Indian Tribes in our arid region need access to reliable water to continue to live on reservation lands. This session, I jointly authored Assembly bill 1361 with Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D – Coachella) , to streamline water deliveries to Indian reservations throughout California. The bill allows water districts to enter into voluntary agreements with sovereign Indian tribal governments with reservations that lie outside water district boundaries to provide water to the reservations without requiring tribes to annex additional land as they must do now. We live in a desert environment and water availability is a paramount issue which can be doubly true for many Indian reservations that are often located in remote areas without easy access to potable water.

Until now, the only remedy has been for tribes to annex land between their reservations and nearby water districts. This is a costly, time consuming process involving federal, state, and local governments that impose regulations infringing on tribal sovereignty.

Dear Friend of the Animals,

California has always been at the forefront of animal protection, and today we're celebrating another step forward for our state. California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law legislation that will prevent the sale of commercially raised dogs, cats and rabbits in pet stores across the state of California, protecting both pets and consumers. This model is already used by the nation's largest pet retailers, Petco and PetSmart, providing greater visibility to shelter animals by getting them out of the shelter environment and into a public storefront, thus increasing their chance for adoption.

California joins more than 230 cities, towns and counties across the U.S. that have passed pet store ordinances to take a stand against allowing cruelly-bred animals to be sold in their communities. Despite enticing claims that they only source from licensed, humane or small-scale breeders, pet stores across the country are invariably supplying unsuspecting consumers with animals from puppy and kitten “mills.” These facilities are designed to maximize profits at the expense of the animals in their possession. Those animals are generally kept in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food, water or socialization, leaving them with

AB 1361 requires agencies such as the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) to impose conditions on the extension of water services to reservations similar to those imposed on other agencies without discrimination. The bill’s local supporters include the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians, the San Luis Rey Indian Water Authority, the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation along with local water agencies including the Valley Center Municipal Water District, the San Diego County Water Authority, the City of Escondido and the Vista Irrigation District. Over 100 federally recognized Indian tribes lie within the State of California, and obtaining a secure supply of water has been a longstanding issue. Since eight separate reservations are located within the 75th Assembly District, I am very pleased to report that AB 1361 has just been signed into law by Governor Brown.

Assemblymember Marie Waldron, REscondido, 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.

medical and behavioral issues for life. This legislation will help break the supply chain so that “mill” operations are unable to profit from their abusive practices. Opponents of this bill also believe that it punishes business owners who sell pets from reputable breeders or the breeders themselves. But that’s simply not the case. This law supports local, responsible breeders who limit their total litters to no more than three per year. Ironically, in much of the United States, San Diego included, we’re actually running out of puppies, which is why we need responsible breeders.

Together, we’re truly shaping the way this country treats its animals. We’re setting the example of how animals should be regarded by ending the tragedy of puppy mills one state at a time. This legislation will help to ease the overcrowding of homeless animals in California shelters, relieve county budgets and put a spotlight on the abusive puppy mill industry. Thank you for being a part of this important work. Together, we can lead the country in the protection of animals and help end the cruelty of commercial puppy mills once and for all. For the animals—all of them,

The Dodge Brothers – An American Success Story

Two of America’s great manufacturing pioneers, Horace and John Dodge, were born into a working-class immigrant family, but through ingenuity, they rose to two of Detroit’s leading industrialists. Today, their name appears on America’s roadways as the label of automobiles and trucks. The origins of the Dodge family lie in Stockport, England, where their ancestral home reportedly still stands. Horace Dodge was born in Niles, Michigan, on May 17, 1868. Their father owned a foundry and machine shop. Horace Dodge and his elder brother John Francis Dodge, born Oct. 26, 1864, were inseparable as children and as adults. Growing into adults, John had the business mind; Horace was a tinkerer of machines.

Horace Dodge

While John was the sales-minded managerial type, his brother Horace was a gifted mechanic. Using a dirt-proof ball bearing that Horace invented and patented, in 1897, John Dodge arranged a deal for the brothers to join with a third-party investor to manufacture bicycles. Within a few years, they sold the bicycle business and in 1900 used the proceeds of the sale to set up their own machine shop in Detroit.

In their first year of business, the Dodge brothers' company began making parts for the automobile industry. In 1902 the brothers won a contract to build transmissions for the Olds Motor Vehicle Company upon which they built a solid reputation for quality and service. However, the following year they turned down a second contract from Olds to retool their Detroit plant to build engines for Henry Ford in a deal that included a share position in the new Ford Motor Company. By 1910, John and Horace were so successful they built a new plant in Hamtramck, Michigan. From 1903 to 1913, the Dodge brothers' business was a Ford supplier, and John worked as vice president of the Ford company. He left Ford in 1913, and in 1914, he and Horace formed Dodge Brothers to develop their own line of automobiles. They began building motor trucks for the U.S. military during the arms buildup for World War I, and in October 1917 they produced their first commercial car. At war's end, their company produced and marketed both cars and trucks.

John was mostly business-like. Horace was not. Among Detroit’s elite industrialist society, the Dodge brothers, especially Horace, could be quite argumentative. Because of Horace’s temper and often crude behavior, the redhaired Dodge was seen as socially unacceptable to most of the wellheeled elite of Detroit. Nevertheless, his wealth made him an influential member of the Detroit community and he became active in Republican Party politics in Michigan. But their rise from humble beginnings to being of the wealthy class was shortlived. Within two years of each other, the brothers died. John and Horace both contracted influenza and pneumonia while in New York City during the Great 1918 Flu Pandemic. John died on Jan. 14, 1920, at the Ritz-Carlton, aged 55. He was interred in Detroit's Woodlawn Cemetery. Horace died the following December. In 1925 their widows sold the Dodge Brothers automobile business to Dillon Read, investment bankers, for $146 million (equivalent to $1.3 billion in 2016. In 1928, Walter Chrysler brought the Dodge automotive company into his Chrysler Corporation where it remains today.

After John Dodge's death, Matilda married Alfred Wilson and adopted two children with him. In 1940, Wilson was Lieutenant Governor of Michigan briefly under Republican Governor Luren Dickinson. Upon her death in 1970, Horace’s widow, Anna Thompson Dodge, left a sum to the City of Detroit for the construction of the Horace E. Dodge & Son Memorial Fountain. The fountain was designed by sculptor Isamu Noguchi and opened in 1978 as part of the city's Hart Plaza. Horace E. Dodge, Jr. died in 1963 at age 63.

The only sign of what is left of the Dodge Brothers is in the millions with automobiles and trucks driving the streets and highways of North America. The Dodge brothers may be forgotten, but their family name lives on. John Dodge

Torrie Dunlap, CEO of Kids Included Together, points out that the organization's goal is to ensure that children with varying abilities have a chance to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. That objective dovetails with BGCA's mission to create safe, positive and inclusive environments for all children. Under the new partnership, KIT will be teaching Boys & Girls Clubs staff members about disabilities and how to make accommodations so children with complex requirements or behavioral considerations can be included in everyday activities alongside their peers. As part of the partnership, KIT will host an exclusive webinar series during the month of October for the Clubs in addition to its general curriculum, which includes

are to “fear no evil”). Valleys are between two mountain tops.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 360 Church, San Marcos Q & A: When we go through Valleys.

Recently I was asked “Why am I going through what I am? Where is God in my trials? It reminded me of the 23rd Psalm and here is some reflection on it. We all go through crossroads in life. We all face trials and tests. These are called valleys. When we go through valleys, we wonder why we have to go through them. I often turn back to Psalm 23 and remember valleys are dark places where you feel you won’t make it through. Remember this… David called it a “shadow”... it’s the valley of the “shadow”.

Valleys are actually the pathway to the Promised Land. (That’s why, even if we walk through the shadow”, we

Also, God often leads us to the Red Sea of our lives and it seems there is no way out…only to deliver us from it. There is a way of escape. There is a “cross over”. Always remember God is there with His grace, His guidance and His mercy. Valleys are also where we tend to question Him. Remember, He knows how to lead you through them. It’s there we come to know Him better; it’s there we learn to trust Him. The phrase “fear not” is used in the Bible more than any other command. Remember, He is the Shepherd. My Shepherd. He’s your Shepherd (if you choose Him to be). We all pass through valleys… but we will not live there forever. Valleys are not permanent. They are a place where God takes us to grow us into mature followers. Remember, valleys aren’t forever; His love, however, endures forever.

tion.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about ageing is that it’s such a nice change from being young.

The few who learn by observa-

The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there. 11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n than puttin' it back in.

12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut. ABOUT GROWING OLDER …

First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of algebra … Fifth ~

You know you are getting old

Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Eight ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been. Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable and relaxed.

Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.

And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old. AUSTRALIAN BRICKLAYER'S ACCIDENT REPORT

Possibly the funniest story in a long while. This is a bricklayer's accident report, which was printed in the newsletter of the Australian equivalent of the Workers' Compensation board. Dear Sir,

I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form.

I put 'poor planning' as the cause of my accident. You asked for a fuller explanation and I trust the following details will be sufficient.

I am a bricklayer by trade. On the day of the accident, I was working alone on the roof of a new six-story building. When I completed my work, I found that I had some bricks left over which, when weighed later were found to be slightly in excess of 500 lbs. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a bar-

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

Disposing of Hazardous Waste in our Homes

Did you know Vista residents can dispose of household hazardous waste from their homes for free? Unused or old household cleaners such as drain and oven cleaners, wood and metal polish cleaners, disinfectants, old paint, lawn and garden products, automotive products, and other household hazardous waste can be dropped off for free at the City's Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Old computers, phones, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, pool and photo chemicals, as well as old or unused medications and home-generated sharps can also be dropped off. No appointment is necessary; however,

you must be a city of Vista resident (living within city limits). You will need to show proof of residency at the facility. If you have used oil to recycle, you can also bring it to any of the 13 CalRecycle locations in Vista during their operating hours. Check online at cityofvista.com for the list. Household Hazardous Waste Facility Hours: Saturdays only - 9 am – 3 pm (closed holiday weekends) Location: 1145 E.

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood

Heritage Park Fall Festival & Chili Cook Off Come and join us on Saturday, November 4, from 12:00 to 4:00 pm for the Heritage Park Fall Festival and Chili cook-off. This event, sponsored by the Friends of Oceanside Parks and Recreation, is free and offers music, food and vendor booths. If you would like to participate in the chili tasting, the cost is $5 per person. This annual fundraising event assists the Friends to continue offering future community events including summer concerts and movies in the parks. The North County Model Railroad Society will rel by using a pulley, which was attached to the side of the building on the sixth floor.

Securing the rope at ground level I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went down and untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow descent of the bricks. You will note in Block 11 of the accident report form that I weigh 135 lbs. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel, which was now proceeding downward at an equally impressive speed.

This explained the fractured skull, minor abrasions and the broken collar bone, as listed in section 3 of the accident report form. Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my right hand were two knuckles deep into the pulley. Fortunately by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of beginning to experience pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottom fell out of the barrel. Now

be open for viewing, as well as the “Trains for Kids” room. Heritage Park and Museum was built in 1976 as a replica of Oceanside at the turn of the century. It is an historical spot in our community and an ideal location for family recreation or your next special event. The address is 220 Peyri Road and there is ample parking at the location. Grab your friends and neighbors and enjoy the beautiful Oceanside weather! For more information about upcoming Parks and Rec events and programs, please visit www.oceansiderec.com, call 760-435-5041, or visit their Facebook page at “Friends of Oceanside Parks & Recreation.” devoid of the weight of the bricks, that barrel weighed approximately 50 lbs. I refer you again to my weight.

As you can imagine, I began a rapid descent, down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles, broken tooth and several lacerations of my legs and lower body. Here my luck began to change slightly. The encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell into the pile of bricks and fortunately only three vertebrae were cracked.

I am sorry to report, however, as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to move, I again lost my composure and presence of mind and let go of the rope and I lay there watching the empty barrel begin its journey back down onto me. This explains the two broken legs. I hope this answers your inquiry. •••• Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'prejudice' these days................

Early this year we built and shipped, for Kent, two identical Windows7 desktop PC systems. Kent gave one to his wife, Tess, and then proceeded to customize the other for himself. He dumped Windows, loaded a Linux Operating system and joined the Linux user’s cult to begin the process of making himself and his Internet browsing activities untraceable.

“There is nothing informative or educational in this week’s column.”

Yep today’s column is pure whimsy. One of the benefits of having your own column is that you can write about anything that strikes your fancy. This week I’m fondly remembering our old friend Kent Ballard. Kent was a gifted writer and a frequent feature writer for The Paper. Some of his articles like “Last Flight” and “Blind Curve” were classics. There was a lovable quirkiness about Kent. He never met a conspiracy theory he didn’t like, was a leader in the movement to find Bigfoot, was highly distrustful of Governments and protective of his privacy to the point of paranoia. Kent and I often communicated by phone and Email or through “keyboard and stylus,” an internet based writers

Cox Complaint

Hi. Saw your complaint in Man About Town and have to agree about the service. My problem was with the TV, but experience was much the same. 4 appointments, everyone with a different opinion. Not helpful. Got the feeling they just wanted to check me off the list and be gone. It took a lot of my time. They said they would give me a free movie channel for my trouble. Then they billed me for it. I’ve been a customer over 25 years and the service has definitely deteriorated. Really enjoy Man About Town. /s/Margie Olsen

Kent died in mid-summer, only a couple of weeks after being diagnosed with stage four cancer. A few weeks before his death Kent and I had the following email conversation. I started it with a tongue in cheek post chiding Kent about his efforts to hide from the cyber snoops. “I’ve bad news for you Kent As it turns out, all the effort and expense spent learning Linux in order to eliminate your cyberspace footprints have been in vain. Julian Asage determined that our government (and presumably all the other important ones) no longer use “the cloud” to spy on citizens. Government’s use of the Internet for spying on individuals has gone the way of the buggy whip, it’s obsolete. For the CIA, ICE, FBI and NSA and the rest of our government’s alphabet soup, the Internet is nothing more than a convenient way to divert public attention from the real tools of espionage. They now ply their trade using a sophisticated network of common everyday household devices to mine your personal data.

are your microwave, refrigerator, electric tooth brush, TV, space heater, dishwasher, toilet, motion sensors and light bulbs, whether on or off. All of these devices are constantly watching and listening to you. While you sleep your bedroom CO2 alarm collects the alpha and beta waves that tell them what you are dreaming. All of this data is chemically stored in the sewer (in your case the septic tank) and uploaded to a polar orbiting satellite every ninety minutes.

If I were you, I would think seriously about getting a tin foil roof.”

Kent wrote back. “I think you may be right about the futility of trying to hide. Imagine one day, when you think you are all alone in your own home, you decide to enjoy a ripping good fart. SIRI or Amazon Echo hears it and orders gas pills to be droned to your door. Your bank card is charged, your doctors records are updated. Local restaurants will be informed in case they wish to cut down

on the spices in their food, making meals less pleasant for everyone. Your employer will be alerted to your possible health problems so that he can alter your insurance coverage or terminate you as a “high risk” employee. Your grocer will delete flatulence prone food and condiments from your grocery order and your browser will be bombarded with bland food recipes. Your Face book, Snap chat and Twitter friends will be alerted that you might be sensitive to fart jokes. Your dating site date will be annotated with the warning “this guy farts like a horse.” Advertisers and government agencies will flood your browser and mailbox with helpful information and your family will be encouraged to organize an intervention. Airlines, busses Uber drivers and other public transportation providers will be warned that your patronage might be problematic. And all of this will happen at the speed of light.” God I miss you Kent.

The intelligence community now has an army of snitches that track your every move and it doesn’t cost them a dime. You pay for their espionage equipment, provide a secure vantage point for it and even pay the electric bill to run it. Is this a great country or what?

Kent, I’ll bet you have at least a dozen Government snitches in your own house. They

A customer asked, "In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?" The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?"

The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I asked for some Whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?" The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't." The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Polish?"

That, I think I did a half way decent job at (though it was difficult, wearing those high heels and applying mascara every day. The neighbors were beginning to point and laugh).

However, I clearly stumbled when it came to proof reading the most recent issue of The Paper. I missed the jump pages to which you refer and several other fairly simple typos. Unfortunately, I'm gonna lose Evelyn again for a few days as she has to go back to Oklahoma to organize and attend funeral services for the family member that passed. I shall try to do better.
