By Friedrich Gomez
San Diego County has often been referred to as “The Most Haunted Place in America,” and not without reason. Or, at least not without wide-spread allegations. Such a dubious distinction would place San Diego alongside such noteworthy spooky adversaries as Salem, Massachusetts; Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; New Orleans, Louisiana; Galveston, Texas; and San Francisco, California, to name just a few ghostly contenders to the throne.
The grisly history of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania certainly places it among the Top Ten List. As writer and ghost expert, Angela Nightingale, states: “During the Civil War, thousands of soldiers were wounded or killed on the Gettysburg, Battlefield. There was so much spilled blood that medical personnel created holes in the floors in order to drain it. Several streets and homes near this historic battlefield have reports of ghostly sights from this historic and fatal event.” Yet, in Nightingale’s “10 Most Haunted Cities in America,” she ranks Gettysburg as No. 7 on the Top Ten List. She, frightfully, places San Diego County as a much more haunted city – by far! Unlike Gettysburg and other ghostly areas, San Diego has an unusually high number of so-called haunted places – far more than most other cities, combined! For both ghost hunters and paranormal scientists, San Diego County has long ruled supreme as being the most haunted city in America, or so it has been said. Film crews and researchers from around the globe have found San Diego to be, well, out-of-this-world. An unusually wide spectrum of historical documentaries, science-fiction shows, and even television’s “Paranormal Files” have found the ghostly feedingtrough in San Diego to be unending.
Such ghostly curiosity is nothing new to our city. Far from it. As far back as September of 2005, LIFE magazine sent prize-winning photographer, Kevin Cooley, to capture three stunning photographs of the Whaley House for their October 21 national issue. LIFE magazine referred to San Diego’s Whaley House, in Old Town, as: “The most haunted house in America!” And that assessment was nothing new!
So widespread and powerfully-popular is this haunted San Diego The Paper - 760.747.7119
dwelling, that the Whaley House was actually mentioned in the 2007 animated movie, “Hellboy: Blood and Iron.” And in 2012, the film studio, Asylum, premiered the movie titled, “The Haunting of Whaley House,” which further entrenched its pervasive status. The Whaley House’s ghostly history, legend, and lore were used as the fundamental story line of the movie!
More recently, in 2014, San Diego’s Whaley House was the top story on the popular television series, “Ghost Adventures,” making the show’s 110th episode among the most popular for television viewers! No small feat when one considers that the Ghost Adventures’ TV crew travel worldwide, visiting the scariest and most haunted places in the world! So, let’s take a closer – and spookier - look at what many investigators call America’s most haunted city -- San Diego! But, this time, let’s take a fresher look at some old familiar places, as well as some undiscovered ones that just might surprise you! THE HOTEL DEL CORONADO.
Certainly, one of San Diego County’s most reputed places of ghosts, poltergeists, and phantoms, is the worldrenowned Hotel Del Coronado. However, the legend and lore of the hotel is so gargantuan on its own merits as to even overshadow any ghostly connections. When the colossal Hotel Del Coronado first opened its doors in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel on planet Earth, Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12
and one of the largest wooden structures in the entire United States (it was built without the use of any nails – wooden pegs were used instead). The fame of ‘The Del’ (as she is affectionately known), is so overwhelming that since she made her debut 128 years ago, every U.S. President – except for six – has stayed there! She has been the ultimate mecca for royalty, VIPs, and Hollywood’s greatest movie stars. From Charlie Chaplin to Babe Ruth; Charles Lindbergh to Amelia Earhart; John F. Kennedy to L. Frank Baum (author of the Wizard of Oz books), and from Marilyn Monroe to Madonna and President Barak Obama, the Del’s fame and beauty is said to be without equal. The Del was also the very first hotel in world history to utilize that other-worldly invention, called electrical lighting! To many rural residents of the time, such artificial illumination by electricity was even spookier than, well, spooky spirits! Perhaps this early lighting system would prove fortuitous to better see any ghosts which, supposedly, still haunt this magnificent structure that has been, officially, designated a National Historic Landmark. Speaking of ghosts and things that go bump in the night, one of the more high-profile episodes was said to have occurred in May of 1983, when then Vice-President George H. W. Bush (the elder), paid an official visit to San Diego and decided to bed-down at the historic Hotel Del Coronado. The U. S. Secret Service agents are, traditionally, fearless.
However, perhaps their fearlessness only extends to earthly parameters. While George Bush slept serenely, one of his agents most definitely did not! Unknown to him at the time, the agent was placed in what is now, reputed, to be one of the most haunted rooms at the Hotel Del Coronado. A room that has long been investigated by various television shows and paranormal scientists for its unearthly manifestations. On this particular night, George Bush’s poor Secret Service man had to get out of a warm bed to try to shut the windows of his room when the curtains kept billowing outward, resembling, somewhat, a Victorianstyle dress, all of which was distracting him from sleep. He decided that he had to close the windows to stifle the incoming wind. To his great surprise, the secret agent found his windows were already tightly shut! Things got spookier.
A breeze kept chilling his room and strange guttural sounds began to emerge from nowhere! The final straw came when the Secret Service man, purportedly, became startled when he saw the ceiling of his room suddenly immersed in an eerie glow that slowly spread throughout his room! It was then, as recorded, that the Secret Service agent called the check-in reception desk, complaining of various unexplained events in his room, not the least of which were loud noises in the room above him, during the night. When told there was no other room above him

because he was already occupying the top floor – he immediately requested to be moved to another location!
The first room the agent was placed in is, allegedly, haunted by the ghost of Kate Morgan, alias Lottie Bernard (or Barnard) after she committed suicide from a single .44 caliber gunshot to her right temple, on November 24, 1892. According to the official coroner’s report, she is described – in addition to her height, weight, etc. – as very beautiful. To this day, many have claimed to have seen a stunningly beautiful woman gliding about in ghostly form. Her apparition is often referred to as “The Beautiful Stranger,” Kate Morgan’s other-worldly nickname. To this day, there are many who have claimed to have heard voices, or seen lights flicker on-and-off when her room is unoccupied. Some describe an icy coldness near her room: “Like a draft from a slaughterhouse.” Kate Morgan’s original room number 302 has been changed down through the years due to construction expansion designs – same room location, just different room numbers. Kate Morgan’s room number, currently 3327, is the most requested one at the seaside hotel; so much so that Morgan’s haunted room is now extremely difficult to reserve, sometimes booked months, even years in advance, especially prior to Halloween. Kate Morgan’s body is

Irish Puddle fishing The rain was pouring down. And there standing in front of a big puddle outside the pub, was an old Irishman, drenched, holding a stick, with a piece of string dangling in the water. A passer-by stopped and asked, "What are you doing?" "Fishing" replied the old man.
Feeling sorry for the old man, the gent says, "Come in out of the rain and have a drink with me." In the warmth of the pub, as they sip their whiskies, the gentleman cannot resist asking, "So how many have you caught today?" "You're the eighth" says the old man.

buried at Mount Hope Cemetery not far from downtown San Diego, but many attest that her spirit never, indeed, checked out of her hotel room at the Hotel Del Coronado.
Aside from Kate Morgan, there was another woman who committed suicide prior to 1900 and she, also, has been said to occasionally materialize in ghostly form, sometimes frightening the hotel staff. One maid gives a chilling account when she claimed to have slipped a piece of paper under the door asking if the occupant would like the room cleaned. She says the note was sent back under the door with the reply “Yes” written on it. When the maid entered the room, she found it completely unoccupied! In addition to the various hauntings, many have also reported the ghost of a little boy and girl running up-anddown stairwells and hallways, playing. Paranormal investigators classify such manifestations as poltergeists (German word for ‘playful’ or ‘mischievous’ spirits).
Today, it is not unusual for members of the Hotel Del Coronado cleaning crews to request working in pairs, especially when working in dimlylighted hallways and stairways. The cleaning staff have often reported strange sightings and uneasy feelings of being watched. In regards to the Hotel Del Coronado, and its ghostly connections, the famed hotel does not attempt to hide or suppress any ghostly activity there but, rather, rel-

Social workers there raise doubts about the living conditions in a circus, but the couple produces photos of their 50-foot luxury motor home, which is clean and well-maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery. The social workers also raise concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care. "We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin and computer skills." Then the social workers express concern about a child being raised in a circus environment. "Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare and diet."

EPILOGUE: While George H. W. Bush did not report any ghostly happening at The Del when he stayed there in 1983 as Vice President, years later, his son, would – at the White House. In his book, “Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush” author, Robert Draper, interviewed the sitting president six times, and received an unexpected earful. The White House has long been considered haunted and Bush (the younger) found it to be a “creepy place,” as he confessed to the author. President Bush, in six formal interviews granted to Draper, recounted a most disturbing paranormal episode. After a hearty workout in the White House gymnasium one evening, Bush suddenly froze in mid-step when he was approaching the Lincoln Bedroom. According to Draper, Bush confessed to a friend that he actually saw, “Ghosts coming out of the wall!” Bush is not alone, as many sitting presidents, and visiting luminaries, have attested to seeing ghosts at The White House. President Theodore Roosevelt once said he saw Lincoln in various rooms and halls at The White House. Queen Wilhelmina, of the Netherlands, is said to have fainted after answering a knock on the Rose Room door only to come faceto-face with Abraham Lincoln! And it is well-recorded that Sir Winston
The little boy replied, "Sure! Just go straight down this street a coupla blocks and turn to your right." The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new pastor in town. I'd like for you to come to church on Sunday. I'll show you how to get to Heaven."
The little boy replied with a chuckle. "You're kidding me, right? You don't even know the way to the Post Office!” ••••• I was at the pub the other night, and overheard three very hefty women talking at the bar.
Their accent appeared to be Gaelic, so I approached and asked, "Hello, are you three lassies from Ireland?"
Churchill never relished sleeping in Lincoln’s old bedroom and, frequently, asked to be moved to another room. It is a well-known fact that President Ronald Reagan’s connection and interest in the spiritual and paranormal world was through First Lady Nancy Reagan’s use of psychics and astrologers. It is compelling that many of our world leaders were/are believers in ghosts! President and Mrs. Reagan once paid a visit to Hollywood’s world-famous Magic Castle to attend a special séance there. Along with six of their Secret Servicemen.
THE JULIAN HOTEL. Julian is a census-designated area of San Diego County with a rich history in California’s Gold Rush era and, like the Hotel Del Coronado, the Julian Hotel (now called The Julian Gold Rush Hotel), is said to be haunted by more than one ghost. But, the similarity ends there. Unlike the Hotel Del, the proprietors of this mountainside resort hotel do not always wish to scare away tenants with tales of poltergeists, which many attest to. Aside from the beautiful Julian Hotel’s boast of being the oldest continuously-operated hotel in Southern California, it may also lay claim to being an equal opportunity employer, in more ways than meet the eye (or that don’t meet the eye!). Having said that, the primary ghost there is said to be of a black man named, Albert Robinson, who died on June 10, 1915. Well, at least his

body died. The historical part of Albert Robinson’s earthly existence is a fascinating study, even without the ghostly aspect. In short, Robinson was a freed slave from Missouri, who migrated to Julian, along with his entrepreneurial spirit (no pun intended). In Julian, he met his wife and opened up a restaurant, which boasted a bakery that made delicious apple pies (sound familiar today?). Robinson’s business flourished and soon became the Hotel Robinson, which had an impressive 14 guest rooms. Impressive, when one keeps in mind that he was an uneducated former slave who became a most successful black businessman in early, ultra-conservative America! But the music stopped in 1915 when Robinson died and the town refused his burial at the all-white cemetery. As legend has it, Robinson’s spirit did not take kindly to this final insult. So – you guessed it – Robinson’s ghost is said to haunt the presently-named Julian Hotel (formerly, the Hotel Robinson). Robinson, allegedly, haunts the Julian Hotel’s room No. 10, where it is said, he once lived. The bed in room 10 is often found to be messed up – unaccountably – after it has been properly made; and the room’s furniture is also reported to be re-arranged in configuration to the way it used to be when he lived there; and the smell of his favorite pipe tobacco seems to linger in his former room. As a poltergeist, he is said to hide small objects found in his room and, when greatly angered, he will slam doors!
Some say the other ghosts at the Julian Hotel were laid to rest when an exorcist was brought into town. However, Robinson – the former black slave, who was refused a proper burial – seems to have taken roost at the very establishment that he helped create, long, long ago. One of life’s ironies is that Robinson hailed from Missouri. Missouri being well-

NCHS is an organization that offers primary medical care, dental and mental health services to the underserved. Families will have an opportunity to be screened for blood pressure, diabetes, body mass index, asthma, kidney disease, colorectal cancer, skin cancer, and oral health. Also, there will be fun activities planned for the children and their families, including a 5K fun run, kid zones, and more. The health fair is supported by Henry Schein Cares’ flagship program, Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities (HLHC), which provided a $5,000 grant, as well as medical and dental supplies valued at $5,000 to ensure needed care is delivered.

THE GRANDE COLONIAL HOTEL. Located in La Jolla, California, this is one of the lesserknown haunted hotels. Or, so it has been said to be haunted. The Grande Colonial Hotel befits its name as an elegant, upscale establishment complete with classic European styling. The hotel’s regal sobriquet is “The Jewel of the Pacific.” The area of the hotel that is attributed to ghostly happenings is near a conference room called “The Sun Room.” Reportedly, heavy footsteps are heard going up-and-down the staircase. When not walking, there are the more frightening sounds of heavy footsteps running, loudly, the entire length of the stairwell from top to bottom, both directions. These are often accompanied with loud doors slamming. Historical records reveal that over 70 years ago this same room and adjacent areas were once used as a temporary military barracks for World War II servicemen! THE WHALEY HOUSE. Most San Diegans know of this place, located in San Diego’s historic district called Old Town. But, there may be much we do not know of the Whaley House and its, purported, ghostly affiliations.
There are countless places, houses, cemeteries, etc, that are said to have rather disturbing supernatural occurrences, such as: San Jose’s Winchester House, San Simeon’s Hearst Castle, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Hollywood’s worldfamous Magic Castle, and so on. But, the ghostly legends at the Whaley House take a backseat to no other. If we are to believe the Travel Channel’s quest for “America’s Most

The Paper • Page 4 • October 20, 2016 STOP! Red Light Cameras Fading Out in Vista
More and more cities are voting to get rid of the the red-light camera program. Vista is one of the latest.
On a 3-0 vote the Vista City Council voted to end the red-light cameras by December 31st. Mayor Judy Ritter and Councilman John Aguilera abstained. The cameras have been very unpopular with area motorists and even the cities who benefit financially from them found that, often, the revenue was not worth the effort involved.
Oceanside, Escondido, Poway, San Diego and El Cajon — have all already ended their red-light camera program. With Vista’s vote, Encinitas, Del Mar and Solana Beach are the only cities in the county that will still use the cameras. FPPC Nixes Investigation Filed by Oceanside Candidate
A candidate for Oceanside’s City Treasurer, Nadine Scott, had filed a complaint with the state Fair Political Practices Commission which claimed she was discriminated against because Oceanside city officials had campaigned illegally on behalf of a deceased City Treasurer, Gary Ernst, who recently died. Oceanside issued a Sept. 23 news release stating that Ernst had died of natural causes. The city included a similar announcement in its Oceanside Tide email newsletter, mourning Ernst’s death, noting his public service and explaining why his name will still appear on the November ballot and what would happen should he be re-elected.
Scott, an attorney and community activist who is the only other candidate in the treasurer’s race, complained to the FPPC on Oct. 4 that through the email the city was promoting the deceased candidate over her.
approved by the council in 2007 before the economy and the real estate market imploded into the Great Recession.
Under the law, if Ernst ir re-elected then the City Council has the option of appointing a city treasurer.
Consultants have recommended pulling the office space entirely and cutting way back on the retail component, some 120,000 square-feet. Consultants argue that housing poses a greater need than retair or office space.
The agency responded in a letter dated Oct. 6 that it found nothing in the complaint to warrant an investigation.
Normally a low profile candidacy, the election of a city treasurer is drawing more interest this year because of several factors, not the eleast of which is the difference in salary.
The city of Escondido offers a salary of $126,804 plus a car allowance whereas the city of Carlsbad offers only $12,000 a year. In Oceanside, with an elected position, the salary is $24, 181, in Vista it is an appointed position and the salary ranges from $8735 to $17192 and in San Marcos, the job is blended between the City Manager’s Office and the Finance Director’s office. There is no budget category assigned to the position of city treasurer as it is part and parcel of the two department heads duties. Creekside Plans for San Marcos Up in Smoke?
A clearly frustrated Mayor Jim Desmond complained, “… This rips the heart out of the downtown plan,” He was referring to new recommendations for what had been the groundwork for a lively “urban downtown area” to be known as Creekside.

Just in time for Halloween, that prolfic writer Friedrich Gomez scares us all with this week’s cover story dealing with all the spooky goings-on within San Diego County.

The original plan called for roughly 2,300 residential units, 1.2 million square feet of retail space and 589,000 square feet of office space to be built along a 214-acre site that straddles the creek, parallel to San Marcos Boulevard.
Council members agreed that market realities had shifted and their vision for the site needed to follow suit. But saying goodbye to the dream was still a little painful.
Revisions to the plan would make it considerably less dense, spreading out the residential units across more of the project area — which several council members said could be a good thing. Council members said they want to have the city’s Creek District task force review the proposed changes, as well as to gather public input.
The council also emphasized that — since the project is still years away from getting built — any revisions to the plan should be flexible and able to accommodate future market changes. Letter s to the Editor? We love ‘em! Send them to: email@example.com Please keep to under 250 words

Letters to the Editor Trump Endorsement
I like your paper very much so of course I was SHOCKED to see the only major paper :) in the country endorse TRUMP. You say you will ignore the scandalous behavior because you are afraid of Hillary, mouthing the usual Republican rhetoric verbatim.
What exactly are you afraid of, considering that Hillary has held public office for years at a New York Senator, and was re-elected by a LANDSLIDE as part of her whole life of public service.. You prefer a criminal who has never held public office, who won’t release his tax returns, and tells new lies everyday, is OK with criminal states getting nukes, to the most investigated person in the history of the republic, with nothing criminal ever found.

Haunted,” then one would have to say the Whaley House is – in their findings – the most haunted of all! Mighty big claim to make. But, there are many ghost hunters, and paranormal investigators who totally agree with that nebulous statement. Best bet is to take one of the historic tours at the Whaley House, preferably before nightfall (unless you are one of the heartier souls who doesn’t frighten easily). There is just too much history surrounding the place to be presented here (much of which was already mentioned at the top of this story), but a thumbnail sketch will be attempted.
In addition to serving as the Whaley Family home, the structure used to be many other things: granary, County Court House, commercial theatre, general store, ballroom, school, polling place, billiard hall, etc. In the realm of ghostly happenings, these past functions of the Whaley House are essentials because the more variety of human traffic through a common area often, but not always, results in the greater intensity of ghosts lingering for different reasons. Or so it has been said.
One unsettling fact is, similar to the movie “Poltergeist,” the Whaley House was built where a graveyard once was! Since it was first opened as a museum
in 1960, it has become a significant California State Historic Landmark #65. Earliest reputed ghost at the Whaley House is “Yankee Jim” James Robinson (aka as Santiago), who was hanged on a gallows off the back of a wagon, in 1852, on the site where the Whaley House now sits. Yankee Jim did his utmost best to prolong the proceedings. According to the then, San Diego Union newspaper in 1873, (recalling the incident 21 years prior): “Yankee Jim kept his feet in the wagon as long as possible, but was finally pulled off. He swung back and forth like a pendulum until he was strangled to death.”
Regarding the Whaley House, the San Diego Union reported, “Soon after the couple (Thomas and Anna Whaley) and their children moved in, heavy footsteps were heard moving about the house.” Windows were also known to unlatch and fly up. In later years, various Whaley family members continued – some say – to stay and haunt their own house. The spirits of original house owners, Thomas Whaley and his wife, Anna, have often been reported. Anna Whaley’s ghostly form is often seen in the downstairs rooms or in the garden area. In 1964, Mrs. Whaley’s floating, drifting spirit, allegedly, appeared to television personality, Regis Philbin. According to Philbin’s own words, “All of a sudden I noticed something on the wall. There was something filmy white. It looked like an apparition of some kind. I got so excited I couldn’t restrain myself! I flipped on the flashlight and nothing was there but a portrait of Anna Whaley, the long-dead mistress of the house.” One parapsychologist claimed to
have seen a spotted dog, resembling a fox terrier, running around the house. He said the dog was an apparition. Whether this is true or not, historical records reveal that the Whaley family owned a terrier dog, named Dolly Varden!

There are many other, supposedly, haunted areas in San Diego County that could not all be mentioned here, such as Mt. Helix, the Point Loma Lighthouse, and the Del Mar Racetrack, once the playground of Hollywood’s past stars such as Walt Disney, Mickey Rooney, Bob Hope, Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, and many other notables, including founding fathers, Bing Crosby, Pat O’Brien, et al. All these glittering array of past movie stars used to stay late, after hours, when the famed seaside track was closed after a day of horse racing, and they would party way into the night, with famed comedian, Jimmy Durante, often playing the piano. It is during these late, isolated dark hours, today, that many ground keepers and workers often attest to seeing and hearing strange, supposedly, supernatural things at the Del Mar Racetrack.
As with other world-renowned publications, the mighty Time Magazine could no longer ignore the gargantuan haunted status of San Diego’s Whaley House. In 2008, the lofty New York print giant buckled under pressure and TIME magazine issued its own Top 10 Haunted Places: “From war-torn battlefields to creaky mansions and ghostly ships, TIME looks at the lore behind the world’s most haunted places.”
At the top of TIME magazine’s list sat San Diego County, a most spooky coronation! Even elite U. S. Government skeptics were forced to give a cursory glance at a most controversial subject that most Americans already knew. Finally, it had to happen. The U. S. Commerce Department classified San Diego’s Whaley House as “allegedly” haunted. “Allegedly” was as close as they could acquiesce to, on such a nebulous, unproved subject.
There are countless other San Diego regions that have been said to have extremely high paranormal activity. To psychic investigators, this is not surprising since much of San Diego County was home to the original prehistoric inhabitants, the Kumeyaay Native Americans, whose ancestral rites and religious ceremonies trace back 13,000 years or more.
Today, the San Diego Whaley House Museum offers Guided Group Tours and Private After Hour Tours. On their 2016 calendar of events, they even offer “Ghost Hunting Tours.”

San Diego - Haunted City Cont. from Page 5 The subject of ghost phenomena cannot truly be verified scientifically, nor can it be dismissed by the same criteria. If one believes in ghosts or not is, of course, a matter of individuality, religious upbringing, and many other socio, spiritual, and psychological factors. But, one thing can be said with reasonable certainly, nearly 50% of all Americans do, in fact, believe in ghosts. And that number of ghost-believers is increasing substantially, every year. In fact, according to the Pew Research Center, these numbers of ‘ghost-believers’ has doubled in a decade!
In the meantime, San Diego County’s largest Halloween outdoor block party, the 16th Annual Monster Bash, is gearing up for its ghostly celebration slated for Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. to midnight, at the city’s downtown Gaslamp Quarter and East Village. It is now world-famous and is a massive San Diego County event spanning over eight city blocks, with multiple live music stages, and even hosting a $5,000 cash costume contest! This venue is restricted to adults only. And it is most indicative of America’s fascination of the supernatural. There is no stopping the national revelry and unabashed love-affair Americans – and the world – seem to have with the ghostly Halloween tra-

dition. A pagan holiday which has Americans spending almost $7-billion annually, making Halloween and ghosts and the paranormal the most popular celebration, second only to Christmas.
Such worldwide popularity with the occult, black cats, witches, and phantoms, has long been a thorn in the side of Christianity. Such an observance and fascination from humans around the world is not likely to ever go away. Rather, it is growing exponentially. It remains an intriguing love-affair which arrives annually like a loud, boisterous uncle through the front door without pretense or apology. A comedian once said Americans believe in ghosts more than they believe that there will be social security checks waiting for them when they retire. Hmm. I don’t know which part of that statement is scarier.

Fighting for California’s schools
As the mother of a high school student, education has always been one of my top concerns. Last session, I supported a number of bills that will reform California’s education system through increased local control, improved transparency, expanded educational opportunities and accelerated learning for all California students. This legislation included a bill to increase exposure to college coursework for high school students through expanded concurrent enrollment. Still another bill allows foster and homeless youth to graduate if state graduation requirements have been met.
On the budget front, I supported a trailer bill that provides almost $3 billion to increase local-flexible school funding, resulting in the highest level of school funding in California history. This legislation also included $20 million for charter school start-up grants, leading
to expanded learning opportunities for thousands of students.
I am pleased to report that these bills passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, and that all have been signed into law. Even so, more needs to be done. Last session I co-authored a bill to repeal the school funding cap, which prevents schools from establishing reserve funds to save for unforeseen costs. Though the bill failed to garner majority support, despite the precedent set by the recently established state rainy day fund, I am hopeful that the issue can be revisited.
California’s education system was once the envy of the nation. Though today our student achievement scores have slipped, I look forward to continuing the effort to improve our schools and secure our children’s future once the Legislature convenes for the 2017-2018 session in January.

On one of Cy Young winner Randy Jones during a game he was winning, Jerry declared, “Jones is leather sharp tonight.”
After some outstanding defensive work that deserved one of Jerry’s famous “You can hang a star on that baby,” he pointed out to the radio audience by describing the play thusly: “Fernando Gonzalez made a great play. He pirouetted with a 363-degree turn to get the runner out.”

Jerry didn’t invent the art of malapropos, he just perfected it
Beginning in 1978, I, along with the late Dave Nuffer, began collecting malapropisms uttered by San Diego’s favorite baseball play-by-play broadcaster, Jerry Coleman.Jerry
When Dave Campbell was asking Jerry about how long ago were his playing days with the Yankees, he lamented that it was long ago … “yes, many, many moons to go, as the Indians say.” As Ozzie Smith ambled slowly up to the batter’s box, Jerry described the short-stop’s action to his radio audience: “Ozzie’s going to use the pine tar rag. That’s a rag filled with pine tar.”
As the 1979 season was nearing the end, Jerry was still hopeful the Padres would make the playoffs. “The Padres are behind by only nine games right now, but that may be putting the horse ahead of the cart.”
Trying to explain away some of the Padres less-than stellar play, Jerry recond, “You can’t make egg Jerry Coleman, left, with Ken Levinie, fellow broad- salad out of horse feathers, as they caster and, later, a writer on Mash, Cheerss, Frasier, say.” and The Simpsons. Dave Winfield was suffering a The former 2nd baseman for the New reoccurring knee injury, to which Jerry York Yankees and Marine colonel noted, “I don’t know how it happened, but fighter pilot was the beloved Padres it must have been that his bat flew around man behind the mike for more than 30 and kicked him.” years. Jerry never failed to “unintentionally” mis-speak some of the action. No matter if it was a Padres pitcher or that of the opponent, Jerry would One of my favorites from 1978, was point out a good throw, “Boy, that pitch during a game when Dave Winfield came right down the horn!” was playing for the Padres. Jerry exclaimed with excitement, “…and Ozzie Smith always dazzled the crowd there goes Winfield sliding into second for a with his acrobatic-style of play, which stand-up double.” certainly caused Jerry to let his radio listeners know. “Ozzie Smith just made Later in the game, “…he hit that on the another play that I’ve never seen anyone else second base side of second base!” make before … and, I’ve seen him make it more than anyone else ever has.” Jerry reckoned one evening after a big defeat, “You can’t win when they beat you.” Occasionally, Jerry would caution his listeners, “you shouldn’t look a gift horse in Shortstop Ozzie Smith was one of the the face.” greatest Padres to play in San Diego. Jerry was impressed with Ozzie leaping Here are some classics without comand catching abilities. “Ozzie, with his ment: beautiful manipulated body, gets it.” As the year continued, Jerry was ever the opti- “He has yet to be wet behind the ears.” mist. “Tonight the Padres got off the track “If he can catch it, he can reach it.” on the right foot.” And the next night, “You said it right on the head, Dave Jerry was impressed with Padres field- (Campbell).” ing. “That’s the greatest play I’ve ever seen … The dice is cast on this one, David.” in years.” “And, here comes Dravecky to turn the tide.” During the 1979 exhibition games of spring training in Yuma, the games were sponsored by Millers, but that didn’t stop Jerry from noting the heat during an afternoon game saying, “Wouldn’t a Bud taste good right now?”
During the 1979 season opener, Jerry summed up the Padres outlook for the season, “… We’re right down to where the short hairs are counting.” Jerry was talking up a youngster who had just joined the team. “… Not bad
And this classic exchange:

"Yes," cried the woodcutter.
The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!"
The woodcutter replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to ANGELINA JOLIE, You would have come up with CAMERON DIAZ. Then if I said 'no' to her, you would have come up with my wife. Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three. Lord, I am a poor man, and am not able to take care of all three wives, so THAT'S why I said yes to ANGELINA JOLIE."

Meet Cleo, an 8-year-old Labrador/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is an absolute beauty, inside and out. She loves snuggling with her volunteers, going for long walks and exploring our play yard. She previously lived with cats and another dog and because of her sweet-as-pie personality, we think she would also do well with respectful children. Cleo is a bit of an escape artist, so she'll need a family who can keep her safe and secure and maybe even teach her how to ask to be let out whenever she pleases.

Escondido City Council Meeting – October 19, 2016 at 4:30pm. Attend or watch online at https://www.escondido.org/meetingbroadcasts.aspx orabilia. The display, titled "Honoring our Local Heroes," now includes multiple documents, military medals, uniforms, photos, dog-tags, and citations. All spotlight current and former residents of Valley Center. Among items on exhibit is an original Civil War discharge certificate issued at Appomattox in 1865, plus a photo profile of 12 other local residents who served in the Civil War, including one soldier who volunteered for the Confederate Army. Seven are buried at Valley Center Cemetery. Visitors will also see tributes to Captain Lester Rice, commanding officer of the legendary aircraft carrier, USS Valley Forge; Navy Master Diver A. Ken Hartle who brought up downed ships and aircraft at Pearl Harbor; and Captain William Roe, organizer of the California State Guard. There is also a major display recalling the military training camp that was housed in a former CCC complex in the 1940s. An oversize banner created in 1947 by Beatrice Bates honors local World War II veterans.
The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Sam Brumit, Mission 316 Church, San Marcos Ministry is Hard
Ministry is hard. Don’t ever doubt that. Lately, it’s been a tough season for me because many of my colleagues have stepped down or resigned… for many reasons. Some due to moral default, some due to division within their churches, some because of alcoholism, others because of burnout or family issues and some just because… and it always makes me sad. It causes me to reflect as follows: 1) Pastors are human. People who have this calling are not ministers – we are PEOPLE who happen to be called to minister. (Actually, all believers are ministers).
Social Butterfly Cont. on Page 11
2) Many of those who fall for various reasons started out with the highest of hopes. Still, the pressures are immense and few are equipped to face all that comes their way. Few are good at “self-care” (myself included). 3) The pressures on pastors are often spiritual in nature. It’s true, we don’t always labor physically as hard as some of those around us, but spiritually it’s a heavy load. 4) Isolation is a culprit. Pastors don’t share what’s going on in our lives at times because we think others would think less of us. The truth is that pastors are not immune to problems and often congregations appreciate self-disclosure. 5) Pastors need prayer. Praying for them is really helpful. There is no greater gift that you can give someone in ministry than to pray for them 6) The time to address the issues we pastors face is BEFORE they happen. We need people who are willing to come along beside us… and we need to let them. Take a moment and lift up those who lead you spiritually. Know they are probably going through a lot.

well-qualified, experienced female against a neophyte, non-politically experienced male is a classic example of raw politics. No, I'm not referring to the US Presidential race but rather to the one in Escondido where Olga Diaz, a talented, experienced female is running for City Council against a male who has no elected experience but was hand-picked by Mayor Sam Abed to run against her because, apparently, she poses a threat to his power. Olga is an outspoken Latina who may be a thorn to Mr. Abed, who in the past has gotten national attention for his negative treatment of undocumented residents. Could that be part of the reason Mr. Abed lost his bid to run for San Diego Supervisor? Because, frankly, Mr. Abed, you are no Kevin Faulkner, more like a Pete Wilson. Olga deserves our vote. /s/Andy Pino, Escondido

“Fat Tuesday,” AKA Mardi Gras Day or Shrove Tuesday, is the day before Ash Wednesday and is a feast day during the Easter season. Here at the Computer Factory FATT Tuesday came last week. Our FATT Tuesday stands for “Freedom from ATT.” After 21 years a prisoner of ATT, Cox finally came to our end of San Marcos Blvd. It isn’t that ATT is bad, they’ve done the best they could with the equipment they have in our area. The problem has been that ATT’s U-verse DSL Internet service at 56 Mbs (Mega bits per second) simply cannot provide the Internet speed for us to do our job efficiently. We may have up to a dozen PCs accessing the Internet simultaneously and the limited bandwidth available from ATT

Cox also picked up our five line phone service. The Internet and telephone switchover was seamless and we were down for only fifteen minutes. Our Internet and phone communication service cost will increase by about $20 a month.
ATT’s phone service has been very good but their business phone plan marketing tactics are just plain sleazy. ATT uses third party “marketing” companies, not ATT employees, to sell their business telephone plans. These sales teams work on commission in telephone “boiler rooms” located in “low rent” states like Oklahoma. They “cold-call” your business several times a year with offers to save you money on your business phone plan. We accepted one of their offers three years ago. Instead of saving money the “new plan” cost about $100 more each month. We fought with ATT for nearly a year. Finally we got help from a local ATT executive and fellow Chamber of Commerce member. With direct access to ATT’s corporate executive suite we got our old plan restored and a $1200 credit. ATT’s Internet service TV and

print ads can also be deceptive. In our area, ATTs Internet speed is a tiny fraction of that available through cable providers. The upside is that ATT Internet is usually cheaper and their 5-6 Mbs speed is adequate for most home users. We have Cox cable Internet at home and we are using Cox’s slowest internet speed option (56Mbs, same as ATT’s fastest). It’s plenty fast enough for all our home needs including buffer free video streaming.

Just an FYI. No matter what Radio “Tech Guy” Leo LaPorte says, DSL Extreme or any other third party DSL provider will not give any more speed than your local phone company. These providers simply lease the access from your local phone company. Third party DSL is usually a ripoff and Leo knows it. Otherwise we like Leo a lot.
