Volume 47 - No. 42 By Friedrich Gomez
U. S. President Harry S. Truman, who never pulled his punches – earning him the lifelong slogan “Give ‘em Hell, Harry!” -- confessed openly that the U. S. White House was strangely haunted. The no-nonsense 33rd President of the United States who ordered the world’s first atomic bombs to be dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, sagged at the knees when he experienced ghostly happenings at the U. S. White House.
In a handwritten letter to his wife, Bess W. Truman, dated September 9, 1946 (and which can be viewed today at the Harry S. Truman Library & Museum at Independence, Missouri), Harry Truman admitted being frightened by unexplained supernatural phenomena at the White House.
In his own handwriting, Truman, in part, expresses to his wife: “At four o’clock I was awakened by three distinct knocks on my bedroom door. I jumped up and put on my bathrobe, opened the door, and no one was there. Went out and looked up and down the hall, looked into your room and Margie’s. Still no one.” (Note: Bess Truman and daughter “Margie” were away at the time.)
That same eerie night was far from being over for the president -- Truman would become more spooked than ever. In the same letter he continues writing: “Went back to bed after locking the doors and there were footsteps in your room whose door I’d left open. Jumped and looked and no one there!”
Harry Truman was sufficiently bothered, baffled, and frightened enough to reach his own rock-bottom conclusion as he wrote in the same letter: “The damned place is haunted sure as shootin.’ Secret service said not even a watchman was up here at that hour.”
In another account, Truman wrote to wife Bess expressing in his own words: “I sit here in this old house and work on foreign affairs, read reports, and work on speeches – all the while listening to the ghosts walk up and down the hallway and even right in here in the study.” The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

It’s not an easy task to frighten the normally intrepid Harry S. Truman who is quoted as saying, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,” and of whom a close friend sized-up as, “One tough son-of-a-bitch!” and meant it.
There have been some American presidents who have claimed to have actually seen ghosts floating about the interior of the

White House and grew greatly disturbed over it. Such occurrences were officially noted and recorded. In his book, “Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush” (published on September 4, 2007) the author, Robert Draper, interviewed the sitting president six times, and received an unexpected ghostly earful. President George W.
Bush admitted during the book interviews that he found the White House to be a “creepy place,” and went on to describe a most disturbing paranormal episode which greatly frightened him.
After a hearty workout in the White House gymnasium one evening, Bush suddenly froze in mid-step when he was approaching the Lincoln Bedroom (which is considered

the most haunted area of the White House). According to book author Robert Draper, who personally interviewed Bush a dozen different times, the president confessed to a friend that he actually saw, “Ghosts coming out of the wall!” (Ibid, pages 8788.)
There is certainly no shortage of U. S. presidents (along with their wives) who have claimed that the White House is haunted. If anything, there is a surplus. Since the White House was first occupied by President John Adams and his wife Abigail in 1800, in the aftermath of years there have been legions of U. S. presidents and their distinguished foreign guests who have openly stated that the famed residence on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is, without question, haunted.
And it seems the other-worldly spirits wasted no time in making themselves known. The ghost of First Lady Abigail Adams has reportedly been seen, clad in early 1800s American cap and lace shawl, walking towards the East Room of the White House, arms outstretched as if carrying an invisible basket full of laundry. (In the early 1800s the White House was built mostly on swampy

land on the banks of the Potomac River, consequently, the East Room of the White House was considered, at the time, to be the warmest and driest area. First Lady Abigail Adams used to hang the wash there to dry.) It is there, where the likeness of Abigail Adams is, allegedly, seen carrying her laundry in ghostly form, walking in the direction of the East Room of the White House.
Since those early White House years, a supernatural legacy seems to have been set into motion and continues to this day, shrouded in mystery, unexplained accounts, myths, legends, and hearsay.
Of all the various ghosts and things that go bump-in-thenight at the White House, from Civil War soldiers killed in battle, to long-dead presidents like Old Hickory himself, Andrew Jackson -- whose ghostly presence was experienced by Harry S. Truman -- the most famous resident ghost of them all is the rail splitter from Hodgenville, Kentucky, Abraham Lincoln. No other White House ghost is more famous and more often seen than the 16th U. S. President, Abraham Lincoln, perhaps following his own advice: “Whatever you are, be a good one.” Today, the phantom of Abraham Cooking outside was called camping. Seaweed was not a recognized food.
“Kebab” was not even a word; never mind a food.
Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold.
Lincoln has the dubious distinction of being popularly referred to, simply, as the official White House Ghost. Grace Coolidge, wife of President Calvin Coolidge (1923-29), was among the first to say she saw Lincoln’s ghost. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt said she often felt a powerful, unsettling, almost physical presence of Abraham Lincoln late at night. Lady Bird Johnson, wife of President Lyndon Johnson (served 1963-69), sometimes felt the almost tangible presence of Lincoln about her. To the point where she felt physically uncomfortable. Others who have encountered Lincoln’s supernatural presence were First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and even presidential children Susan Ford (daughter of U. S. President Gerald Ford) as well as Maureen Reagan Revell (first child of U. S. President Ronald Reagan). In the case of Maureen Reagan Revell, Maureen made light of her husband, Dennis Revell, for claiming that he saw the apparition of Abraham Lincoln. Though her husband swore that it was the absolute truth, his wife Maureen did not buy into the story. Until, on a subsequent White House visit she, herself, saw the transparent image of a ghostly Abraham Lincoln standing by a window. According to Joan Gage, reputable journalist for over 40 years, President Ronald Reagan spoke openly of ghostly episodes at a 1986 State Dinner (where

Joan Gage was an invited guest along with many other luminaries). President Reagan said that at times his dog Rex would often bark loudly and consistently when inside the empty Lincoln Room, as if sensing or seeing something which startled him. Sometimes the dog would quickly back out and refuse to reenter the room. This both intrigued and baffled President Reagan who, himself, was well aware of the ghostly occurrences within the White House. President Reagan, at the State Dinner gathering, felt compelled to share this supernatural experience mainly because it was a common experience.
President Reagan went on to tell of his daughter Maureen, and son-in-law Dennis, having seen Lincoln’s transparent, ghostly figure. The Lincoln Bedroom had long been noticed by its White House occupants, including the U. S. Secret Service agents who roam the premises, for the lights to unaccountably turn on-and-off in the Lincoln Bedroom when it was completely unoccupied. Apparently, a noticeably baffled Reagan felt he had to go on record, confessing these paranormal experiences at that unforgettable 1986 State Dinner. And he did. But there were earlier examples.

After the man finished his drink, he asked the bartender, "If I show you an even better trick, will you give me free drinks for the rest of the evening?" The bartender agrees, thinking that no trick could possibly be better than the first. The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out a tiny rat. He reaches into his other pocket and pulls out a tiny piano. The rat stretches, cracks his knuckles, and proceeds to play the blues. The man reaches into another pocket and pulls out a small bullfrog, which begins to sing along with the rat's music.
While the man is enjoying his free drinks, a stranger confronts him and offers him $400 for the bullfrog. "Sorry," the man replies, "he's not for sale." The stranger increases the offer to $500 cash up front. "No," he insists, "he's not for sale." The stranger again increases the offer, this time to $700 cash. The man finally agrees, and turns the frog over to the stranger in exchange for the money. "Are you insane?" the bartender demanded. "That frog could have been worth millions to you, and you let him go for a mere $700"
"Don't worry about it." the man answered. "The frog was really nothing special. You see, the rat's a ventriloquist." Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

President Truman’s daughter, Margaret Truman, claimed she experienced Abraham Lincoln knocking at her door when she stayed at the Lincoln Bedroom in the White House. And several members of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration staff members claimed that they saw Lincoln in ghostly form. Mary Eben, Eleanor Roosevelt’s personal secretary, once ran screaming out of the Lincoln Bedroom when she said, hysterically, that she saw Lincoln sitting in a chair and putting on his boots.
Even famous visiting foreign dignitaries who have stayed the night at the White House have voiced seeing, feeling, or directly confronting Lincoln’s ghost. In 1942, during a visit to the White House, Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands (daughter of King William III) heard heavy footsteps outside her room and then a heavy knock on her bedroom door in the middle of the night. When the 62-year-old queen opened the door she, reportedly, saw Lincoln’s 6’ 4” ghost standing there, wearing his long frock and top hat. And that’s when Queen Wilhelmina is said to have collapsed to the floor in a dead faint.

than ring the doorbell. Keep Sweets Out of Reach; chocolate and other ingredients can be toxic to animals. Also, be mindful of wrappers and foil – they can be a choking hazard to animals. Costumes Are Not For Everyone: Just because animals look adorable in costumes, doesn’t necessarily mean they like it. Don’t make your pet wear a costume unless you’re sure they enjoy it. A simple Halloween bandana can be a more comfortable alternative. ID Your Pet: Make sure all pets are microchipped and wearing tags with current ID. Opening the door repeatedly creates escape opportunities; if your pet does go missing, a pet ID and microchip will help ensure a quick reunion. Microchips are offered at the Humane Society’s San Diego, Escondido and Oceanside campuses for just $15.

War II and never forgot his spooky encounters there. The normally fearless Churchill related a strange story when he emerged completely naked from his evening bath at the White House, puffing away on his celebrated cigar when he was suddenly startled to see Lincoln’s ghost sitting by the fireplace in his room. It is said that Sir Winston Churchill never relished sleeping in Lincoln’s bedroom after that ghostly encounter and, subsequently, asked to be moved to another room when assigned there.
Many U. S. Presidents have gone on record claiming to have seen various apparitions of the Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, haunting the interior of the Capitol’s White House. From the earliest U. S. presidents to Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, and many others, the sprite (or spirit) of Abraham Lincoln has, reportedly, been seen too often, too many places within the White House, and by too many creditable sources, for all these stories to be dismissed lightly, or completely ignored.
Abraham Lincoln’s son, Willie Lincoln, is also said to haunt the White House. Willie Lincoln died in the White House of typhoid on February 20, 1862 at the age of 11. Willie Lincoln’s ghost was first seen in the White House by staff members

of the Ulysses S. Grant administration during the 1870s. He was reportedly widely seen during the 1960s when President Lyndon B. Johnson’s college-age daughter, Lynda Bird Johnson Robb, saw his ghostly form at the White House on numerous occasions. The president’s daughter, allegedly, felt pity and even attempted to speak and communicate with the little pre-teen ghost. But to no avail.
Oddly enough, Abraham Lincoln, himself, allegedly had a strange ghostly experience which seemed to be a dreamlike premonition of his own death. As the legend goes, it is said that President Abraham Lincoln supposedly anticipated his own assassination. According to Ward Hill Lamon, personal friend of Lincoln, his biographer and self-appointed bodyguard of the president, Lamon spoke of a strange conversation between himself and Lincoln. According to Lamon, Lincoln shared a very strange dream he had which the biographer, Lamon, recorded. According to Lamon, Lincoln described a dreamlike experience in which the president heard people moaning and weeping: “There seemed to be a death-like stillness about me. Then I heard subdued sobs, as if a number of people were weeping. I thought I left my bed and wandered downstairs. There the silence was broken by the same pitiful sobbing, but the mourners were invisible.”

Lincoln’s close personal friend, Ward Hill Lamon, remembers the president saying further: “Determined to find the cause of a state of things so mysterious and so shocking, I kept on until I arrived at the East Room, which I entered. There I met with a sickening surprise. Before me was a catafalque (a decorated wooden framework supporting a coffin of a distinguished person during a funeral or lying in state) on which rested a corpse wrapped in funeral vestments. Around it were stationed soldiers who were acting as guards; and there was a throng of people, gazing mournfully upon the corpse, whose face was covered, others weeping pitifully. ‘Who is dead in the White House?’ I demanded of one of the soldiers, ‘The President,’ was his answer; he was killed by an assassin.’ Then came a loud burst of grief from the crowd, which woke me from my dream. I have been strangely annoyed by it ever since." On the day of his assassination on April 15, 1865, Lincoln’s personal friend and bodyguard, Ward Hill Lamon, was sent by the president to Richmond, Virginia. The president is said to have also told his other bodyguard, William H. Crook, that he had been having assassination dreams for three consecutive nights and that he was

Carlsbad Police Officer Saves Homeless Overdose Victim
On October Tuesday, 17, at 11:07 a.m., Officer Ron Dement was on foot patrol in an area known to be frequented by homeless persons. While checking on an encampment, he was approached by an individual in the 2700 block of Haymar Drive. The person told Officer Dement that another homeless person was attempting to revive a person who was laying in the bushes and was unresponsive. Officer Dement radioed for paramedics to respond and then rapidly located the person in distress. He observed a syringe containing heroin next to the motionless body of a person who was unconscious. Initially, the individual had a slight pulse and exhibited shallow breathing. Officer Dement, assisted by Officer Ramirez, monitored the subject’s pulse and breathing. Prior to the arrival of paramedics, Officer Dement observed the person stop breathing and lost his pulse. Officer Dement initiated CPR, which he maintained until the arrival of paramedics. The para-
medics administered naloxone and the subject regained consciousness. The subject was transported to a local hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. Drug Overdose Contributes to Sheriff ’s Response and Death
San Diego County Sheriff ’s deputies and PERT (Psychiatric Emergency Response Team) reported to the Hobby Lobby at 553 Grand Avenue in San Mrcos on Saturday, October 14, at about 3:45 pm
A call had come in about an adult white male who was staggering, appeared disoriented, and was possibly under the influence of drugs. Upon contact the man became uncooperative and additonal resources were requested; a struggle ensued and he was ultimately TASED. Deputies called the San Marcos Fire Department to the scene to evaluate the male. At that time the male continued to violently struggle with deputies while spitting at them, and showing offers it.

What if he misses it?) He didn’t miss it. He fielded it cleanly and tossed it to 2nd for the force out. Game over, Championship won.

greatly aggravated by them. Crook, allegedly, tried to persuade the president from attending the play “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theatre that night or at least to allow Crook to be added as another bodyguard. His request was denied; after all it was just a dream – a troubling one, but, only a dream nonetheless.
Before Lincoln left his bodyguard, Crook, the president solemnly said, “Goodbye, Crook” and went his way to the theatre. According to Crook, that was the very first time Lincoln had used those words, as Crook recalled: “It was the first time that he neglected to say ‘Good night’ to me and it was the only time that he ever said ‘Good-bye.’ I thought of it at that moment and, a few hours later, when the news flashed over Washington that he had been shot, his last words were so burned into my being that they can never be forgotten.” It was the last that William H. Crook would see of the 56-yearold U. S. president who had been strangely haunted by a ghostly dream. But Crook would never forget the president’s nightmarish dream, where he encountered the ghosts of people weeping and sensed a paranormal premonition of his own assassination. Objectively speaking, today’s
historians hold, at minimum, a casual contempt for Lincoln biographer, Ward Hill Lamon, for writing questionable accounts on the great president’s life (such as his non-religious beliefs), bringing some of Lamon’s remarks to be brought under suspicion.
However, in regards to Abraham Lincoln having a premonition of his own death via a strange dream, it is compelling that this was corroborated by other, more reliable, contemporaries of the day, including that of William H. Crook, one of Lincoln’s bodyguards, who continued to work at the White House for over half a century, serving under 12 U. S. presidents. Crook recorded Lincoln’s haunting dream and set his memoirs down on paper, compiling his White House Years all of which led to his book, “Through Five Administrations: Reminiscences of Colonel William H. Crook, Bodyguard to President Lincoln.” Crook was highly thought of, was buried at Arlington National Cemetery with honors, and his funeral attended by President Woodrow Wilson. Regarding Lincoln’s assassination, presidential security was very weak back in that day and not taken seriously, by today’s standards. His bodyguard that fateful hour was John Frederick Parker, a most inept individual who never should have been placed in that position.
Lincoln bodyguard, William H. Crook (who was off-duty at the time) forever blamed John Frederick Parker for leaving his post at Ford’s Theatre without permission. Parker’s career as a police officer was said to range between the pathetic and the comical. He had been summoned before the police board several times facing a variety of charges that should have gotten him fired outright. Past infractions included being drunk while on duty and frequenting whore houses.
the White House are as follows, based on documentation and visual sightings from a variety of noteworthy guests, dignitaries, and even U. S. presidents, themselves:
10. THE ATTIC. Some claim the ghost of William Henry Harrison haunts this particular area, some say, moving things about as if looking for something. Several U. S. presidents have reportedly heard disturbances and unexplained noises from the attic, which is just above the Oval Office, itself. 9. THE ROSE GARDEN. As already reported, the ghost of First Lady Dolly Madison is said to haunt this garden area. White House insiders have reported seeing her ghostly form here. 8. THE BASEMENT. The White House basement is supposedly haunted by a strange cat, referred to by some staff members as the “Demon Cat.” One story has it that the Demon Cat was sighted quite often just prior to the great stock market crash of the 1920s, and also just prior to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. 7. THE SECOND FLOOR HALLWAYS. The second floor hallways of the White House encompass the official residence of the First Family. The most frequent ghost spotted on the second floor is, you guessed it, Abraham Lincoln, himself (or
Even when John Parker was scheduled to relieve William Crook of his bodyguard duties at 4 p.m. on the day of Lincoln’s assassination, he showed up several hours late. In a matter of hours, under his watch (or lack thereof), the president would be dead. Parker had left his bodyguard post without permission. The president was left vulnerable and totally unprotected and died prematurely, at the age of 56 due to flagrant stupidity on the part of his bodyguard, John Frederick Parker. The outlay of the nation’s White House does not seem to discriminate against ghosts nor does the edifice seem to confine such supernatural phenomena to primarily the Lincoln Bedroom. Apparently, spirits do not respect boundaries or areas of restriction, by any definition.

itself). But let’s not forget the ghost of First Lady Abigail Adams, that President Howard Taft claimed to have seen, floating through the doors, much like President George W. Bush saw. (Bush interviews, “Dead Certain: the Presidency of George W. Bush," book by Robert Draper, Ibid.) 6. THE SECOND FLOOR BEDROOMS. Various second floor bedrooms are used for the president’s family and other guests. It is here that the ghost of a British soldier is sometimes seen. It is here where President Lyndon B. Johnson’s daughter, Lynda, would often see Lincoln’s small son, Willie, who had died in this very room on the second floor. It was also here, on the second floor bedrooms area, where President Grover Cleveland’s wife became the first woman to give birth in the White House (1893). Her ghostly screams during childbirth have been frequently reported here. 5. THE YELLOW OVAL ROOM. During Lincoln’s administration, this room served as his personal library. First Lady Grace Coolidge, as well as several others, have often claimed of seeing his ghost peering through the bedroom windows. Also, First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln often said she saw the ghosts of Presidents Thomas Jefferson and John Tyler here, in the Yellow Oval Room. 4. THE NORTH PORTICO. This White House entrance has several ghost-like fixtures on display. Perhaps an acknowledgement of its other-worldly occupants. The North Portico was constructed back in 1830 and designed to shelter the White House steps in receiving guests arriving in carriages or on horseback. Visitors today have said they have seen the ghosts of long-deceased White House ushers and doormen – still tending to their duties. (Now that’s dedication! But, do these, alleged, ghosts get overtime pay? Hmm, just a thought.) 3. THE EAST ROOM. The East Room seems to be the favorite haunt of Abigail Adams. This is the very area where she would hang her laundry to dry. (Her story is elaborated on, earlier in this article.) 2. THE ROSE ROOM. The Rose Room is largely haunted by the phantom of President Andrew Jackson. Many staff members have heard and/or seen Old Hickory here in the Rose Room. Mary Todd Lincoln claimed to have heard him swearing up a storm. Lillian Rogers Parks (housemaid and seamstress at the White House and, later, journalist) said she felt Lincoln’s ghostly presence and even recorded her experiences in her published memoirs about her stay in the White House (“My Thirty Years Backstairs at the White House,” originally published in 1961). This is also the area where it is said Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, in 1942, while sleeping at the White House, answered a knock on her door only to come face-to-
face with the Great Emancipator standing in the hallway. It was too much of a shock, as Queen Wilhelmina, reportedly, collapsed unconscious to the floor. 1. THE LINCOLN BEDROOM. And the number one most haunted area at the White House? No great surprise here. The Lincoln Bedroom is said, by far, to be the most haunted area of the entire White House, and grounds. Almost every president or presidential family member or visiting dignitary has heard or seen Lincoln’s ghost – the most famous ghost of them all.
Ghostly tales along with legend and lore permeate the White House today, with generous dollops of hauntings and strange supernatural activity reported in great abundance. The legacy is a long one. However, down through the years, such rumors of phantoms and ghostly dreams were not always tolerated by every administration, such as during the presidency of William Howard Taft (19091913). During the Taft administration, most notably during the year 1911, many of the White House staff reported seeing the ghostly image of a strange young boy, which the in-house residents began calling the “Thing.” It came to a boiling point when the Thing began to greatly frighten the domestic staff, causing some distraction and disruption. Then, the ghostly presence began to even affect higher-up personnel. President Taft’s military aide, Major Archibald Butt, wrote to his sister Clara in 1911 saying: “The ghost, it seems, is a young boy about fourteen or fifteen years old. They say that the first knowledge one has of the presence of the Thing is a slight pressure on the shoulder, as if someone were leaning over your shoulder to see what you might be doing.” President Howard Taft was not amused. Nor was he ghostfriendly. The rotund president officially ordered Major Archibald Butt to inform the entire White House staff that the first member to repeat stories about the Thing – would be fired.
How does the White House today, in general, feel about all these supposed paranormal activities?
Well, no better source to go to than the White Office spokespeople, themselves, who formally reflect and represent the general consensus at Capitol Hill. They speak only through the guidelines and authority granted them by acting presidential administrations.
So, come along with me. Let’s see what Capitol Hill has to say about all these ghost stories emanating from the White House down through the years.
Officially, the White House makes no effort to downplay
Legislation for California
This session ending September 15th, 977 bills were submitted to Governor Brown for approval. He signed 859 bills, and I am pleased that seven bills that I authored were included in this total.
My legislation includes AB 4, sponsored by Riverside County District Attorney Michael Hestrin, to deter online voter fraud by requiring notification via email or text when a voter’s registration is altered online, and AB 1361, sponsored by the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians and jointly authored with Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D – Coachella), to allow water districts to provide service to Indian tribal lands without annexation. This bill is important for our region as there are eight sovereign tribal governments in the 75th district. I also joined Assemblymember Garcia to coauthor AB 1111, supporting career technical education to break barriers to work readiness, training, and apprenticeship. Relevant skills will raise people from poverty to selfreliance. The Governor also signed my AB 1386, a Legislative Woman’s Caucus priority bill, raising awareness for newly diagnosed breast/ovarian cancer patients about such other-worldly events. On the contrary, they are quite candid on the subject of things that go bump in the night.
Gary J. Walters, former White House Chief Usher, appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 and served until 2007 (under four U. S. presidents) conducted a formal “Ask the White House” interactive online forum where he answered public questions from all over the country, all pertaining to ghostly episodes at the White House. Here is an actual sampling of questions directed to the White House and their official replies. From Steve in Indiana: “Have most of your staff experienced ghost sightings?” WHITE HOUSE Usher, Gary Walters: “Not most, but some claim to have had some feelings of contact with spirits of previous presidents. A number of the staff have related their personal experiences and we recorded some of their experiences.” Michael from California: “I’ve heard that Andrew Jackson haunts the White House. What is this legend?” WHITE HOUSE: “Legend has it that Mary Lincoln reported hearing him walk around the halls of the White House and supposedly swearing up a storm.” Tom, from Buffalo, NY: “I’ve never heard the Dolly Madison ghost story. What is it?” WHITE HOUSE: “Another popular legend is that of Dolly Madison coming back during
speaking with a genetic counselor to help focus treatment options, along with AB 369, sponsored by the Bar Association, clarifying rights of appeal in child custody cases. Also AB 1031, creating the Native California Wildlife Rehabilitation Fund to support rehabilitation of injured, orphaned or sick native wildlife through a grant funded by voluntary tax return checkoffs. As a trained Project Wildlife songbird rehabber, I know how precious our native wildlife are. Lastly, AB 658, temporarily suspends the license fee clinical laboratories pay, eliminating a $12 million surplus. The Legislature will reconvene January 3rd. It is an honor to continue to serve you in Sacramento and to work on legislation important to our district.

Dolly’s ghost arrived, supposedly, and told them not to disturb her garden.” Michael from Powell, TN: “What is the spookiest story or legend of the White House?” WHITE HOUSE: “The spookiest story I’m aware of is the one related by Mr. Tony Savoy who works here in the White House and claims to have seen President Lincoln. The video is on the White House ‘ghost page.’” Nick, from Sykesville, MD: “Do British ghosts of War of 1812 vintage ever show up?” WHITE HOUSE: “There is a story of a British soldier who died on the White House grounds during the war of 1812 in 1814 when the White House was burnt by the British. It is said that some people have seen a British soldier with a torch in his hand although I have no personal knowledge of this story.” (Wow! That was fun.

The subject of ghostly 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, many surveys show that 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 a separate national poll conducted by CBS News, pollsters found that as high as 61% of the national population in the United States believe in unexplained, ghostly activity. This national zeitgeist segues, full-throttle, into the yearly celebration of Halloween.
There is no stopping the national revelry and unabashed loveaffair Americans – and the world – seem to have with the ghostly Halloween tradition. A pagan holiday which has Americans spending almost $7billion annually, makes Halloween and ghosts and the paranormal the most popular celebration day, second only to Christmas.
Such worldwide popularity with the occult, black cats, witches, and phantoms, have long been a thorn in the side of conservative Christianity. Such an observance and fascination from humans around the world is not likely to ever go away. Rather, it is growing exponentially. Halloween 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, the ghosts or no social security checks in the future.

The Toolmakers of Nazi Germany – Part I
This is part one of a two-part column on aircraft designers and well-known chemical companies who aided Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany using slave laborers. The first is aircraft and engine designer Dr. Ernst Heinkel, who was born Jan. 24, 1888. Heinkel produced the HE 178, the world's first turbojet aircraft and the HE 176, the first rocket aircraft, but, in World War II history, it was the Heinkel 111 bomber that, especially the Brits, is remembered for its devastation during the London Blitz.
Early on, Heinkel had a fascination with Zeppelins. In 1910, he built his first aircraft. In 1922. Due to the restrictions placed on German aircraftmanufacturing after World War I, Heinkel built aircraft in Sweden and in Japan catapult-launched seaplanes for the Imperial Navy. He installed a similar catapult on the ocean liner SS Bremen for launching mail planes.
After Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, designs by Heinkel formed a vital part of the Luftwaffe's (air force) growing strength in the years leading up to the World War II, especially the HE 111 bomber.
Heinkel was passionate about highspeed flight, and was keen on exploring alternative forms of aircraft propulsion. He donated aircraft to Wernher von Braun who was investigating rocket propulsion. After the War, von Braun would go to America and design NASA’s rocket that took the U.S. to the moon. Heinkel had been a critic of Hitler's regime concerning being forced to fire Jewish designers and staff in 1933, however, he was a member of the Nazi party. He used forced Jewish labor starting in 1941, in which his company was considered a "model for slave labor."
But, Heinkel wasn’t necessarily a willing participant in Hitler’s demands. In 1942 the government "nationalized" the Heinkel plant. He was “detained” until he agreed to sell his controlling interest in his factories to Hermann Göring, head of the Luftwaffe. Heinkel moved to Vienna and started a new design company. It was in Vienna Heinkel worked on the HE 274 four-engine high-altitude heavy bomber, which was dubbed the “New York” bomber designed to reach America. After the War, Germany was forbidden to manufacture aircraft, so in 1953,
Ernst Heinkel died in 1958. According to a column by author Mitchell Bard in the Oct. 13, 2017 issue of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Heinkel has been selected for inclusion in San Diego International Air & Space Museum’s “Hall of Fame” for aircraft and engine designers.
Wilheim Emil “Willy” Messerschmitt While the name “Heinkel” was prominent among German aircraft manufacturers, the Messerschmitt ME-109 built by Wilheim "Willy" Messerschmitt was probably best known.
Messerschmitt, who was born June 26, 1898, designed the ME 109, in 1934. The 109 became the most important fighter in the Luftwaffe as Germany rearmed prior to World War II. To this day, it remains one of the most-produced warplanes in history with some 34,000 built. Only the Soviet Union’s Ilyushin Il-2 surpassed it at 36,000. Messerschmitt’s ME 209, broke the world airspeed record, holding it for propeller-driven aircraft until 1969. His firm also produced the first jetpowered fighter to enter combat service -- the Messerschmitt ME 262. During the thirties, Messerschmitt had formed ties with leading Nazis Rudolf Hess and Hermann Göring, to ensure he would get government contracts. In 1936, the Messerschmitt ME109 won the single-seat fighter contest to become one of the main Luftwaffe aircraft types. On 11 July 1938, the company began work on what would become the ME 262, a fighter -- the world’s first “operational” jet aircraft.
Following World War II, Messerschmitt was tried by a denazification court for using slave labor, and in 1948 was convicted of collaborating with the Nazi regime. After two years in prison, he was released and resumed his position as head of his company. Since Germany was forbidden to manufacture aircraft until 1955, Messerschmitt turned to manufacturing prefabricated buildings, sewing machines, and small cars. In 1952, Messerschmitt designed a jet trainer for Spain before eventually being allowed to return to aircraft manufacturing in Germany, the Fiat G91 and then Lockheed F-104 Starfighter for the West German Luftwaffe. He designed the later Helwan HA-300, a light supersonic interceptor, for Egypt.
Messerschmitt died Sept. 15, 1978. It is clear both Heinkel and Messerschmitt’s aircraft greatly strengthened and prolonged World War II. But, without slave labor their companies couldn’t have produced the huge amounts of aircraft they built. Slave labor completely tarnishes the legacies of these two aviation pioneers.

Last week, I experienced the greatest disappointment when the Escondido City Council majority voted to outsource our public library.

The Pastor Says . . . Take it to the trash can. Toss it.”
My pastoral mind started buzzing. After 40 years of writing sermons and now this column, I’m still looking for good stories.
Angelica is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 5 year old, 86 pound, female, Akita.

Blue, a 2-year-old Domestic Short Hair mix, is looking for a loving family to call his own. Blue may be a little shy at first, but give him some time to get to know you and he'll soon be your best friend. Blue warms up quickly and once he feels comfortable, he loves to stretch out his paws for affection. He would prefer to be your only cat, but he gets along well with respectful dogs and children, and would be a great addition to any family! Blue is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society's Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call 760-888-2275 or visit sdhumane.org. Subscribe to The Paper!
Pastor Tom Fry, Retired Church of the Nazarene
Anytime I can, I get on a train, even for short trips. The Metrolink train was arriving in Los Angeles, and the conductor made the usual announcements about connecting trains and subways, gathering your personal belongings and being careful on the stairs.
Then he said, “please take all your unwanted trash with you.” I’m sort of a word nerd, so my mind started working: “Unwanted trash.” Is there, I wondered, such a thing as “wanted trash.” If it’s wanted, isn’t it treasure, not trash? And, if it’s unwanted, why would I shove it in my backpack and carry it through the rest of the day. After all, there is a trash can on my way to exit the train. Maybe that’s it. The real request is, “Don’t leave your trash at your seat.
I thought about people I know who are carrying around “unwanted trash.” Not cups and wrappers, but the accumulation of life, the residue of difficulty, the remains of heartache. All stuffed into the backpack of our memory because there never seems to be a trash can when you really need one.
We all need a place to toss out the trash of our life. To, as the song in the movie Frozen says, let it go. And then I thought of Jesus’ words, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
The accumulation of broken dreams, disappointments and lost hope are part of the unwanted trash of the human spirit. And it wearies us. Jesus offers a place to let it go, so you don’t have to take it with you.
He goes on to say He will lighten our load and share our burden. Then He says, “you will find rest for your souls.” Let it go. Rest your weary soul.

Safety reminders for the Halloween season
As you get ready for trick-or-treating this Halloween, please keep in mind these safety
reminders: • Purchase only costumes, wigs and props labeled flame-resistant or flameretardant. • If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eyeholes are large enough so they can see out. • Provide children with lightweight flashlights to carry for lighting.
• Keep dried flowers, cornstalks and other decorations away from all open flame and heat sources. • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, ensuring nothing blocks escape routes • Use flashlights or battery-operated candles when illuminating Jack-o-lanterns • Do not allow children to carry sharp sticks or other objects that could cause injury • When in doubt, throw it out— closely inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Discard any unwrapped treats from a stranger.

CHRIS CHRISTIE: We need to waterboard that chicken to find out why it crossed the road. RAND PAUL: It's none of our business why the chicken crossed the road. NANCY PELOSI: We will have to wait until the chicken crosses the road to see what it says. CARLY FIORINA: Hillary Clinton lied about why the chicken crossed the road. BRIAN WILLIAMS: I crossed the road with the chicken. BEN CARSON: This isn't brain surgery... It wanted grain. SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, she's a maverick! BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs, they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period. HILLARY CLINTON: What difference does it make why the chicken crossed the road? GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here. BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken. BERNIE SANDERS: That little chicken will pay 80% income taxes no matter what side of the road it's on. She's got to help finance free college even for those that just want a four year vacation. AL GORE: I invented the chicken. AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white? CHILDREN IN CHURCH
Jesus' Dad's Name
A Sunday school teacher asked her class, "What was Jesus' mother's name?" One child answered, "Mary." The teacher then asked, "Who knows what Jesus' father's name was?" A little kid said, "Verge." Confused, the teacher asked, "Where did you get that?" The kid said, "Well, you know, they are always talking about Verge n' Mary.'' ••••• KIDS IN CHURCH 3-year-old Reese: "Our Father, Who does art in heaven, Harold is His name. Amen." ••••• A little boy was overheard praying: "Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it I'm having a real good time like I am." ••••• After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, "That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you." ••••• I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer for several evenings at bedtime. She would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer: "Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us from E-mail. ••••• One particular four-year-old prayed, "And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets." ••••• A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?" One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."

Pumpkin Patch Storytimes at the Oceanside Public Library
It’s time to get in the Halloween spirit! The Library is inviting families to its annual Pumpkin Patch Storytimes at both of their locations. On Friday, October 27, at 10:30 am (English) and 11:30 am (Spanish) come to the Mission Branch Library, located at 3861-B Mission Avenue, and on Monday, October 30, at 6:00 pm, and Tuesday, October 31 at 10:30 am, the Civic Center Library, located at 330 North Coast Highway, will be presenting their Storytimes. These special festive events will include non-scary Halloween stories,
Six-year-old Angie and her four-yearold brother, Joel, were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked.
Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two men standing by the door? They're hushers." ••••• A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.' Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!" ••••• A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand. "Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked.
silly songs and a costume parade! All Pumpkin Patch Storytimes are free and are geared for children seven years old and younger. Children are encouraged to come dressed in their costumes.

"He died and went to Heaven," the Dad replied.
The boy thought a moment and then said, "Did God throw him back down?" ••••• A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their sixyear-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing?" "I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied. "Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?" ••••• My 70-year kindergarten reunion is coming up soon and I'm worried about the 200 pounds I've gained. •••••

By directing traffic to our website Google helped us in two ways, first it brought in new customers and second, the increased traffic from the ad helps elevate us to a more prominent position on the Internet search engines.

Updating Seniors in Cyberspace
In mid-September we launched our new website (www.thecomputerfactory.net) and announced our intentions to learn the ins and outs of Internet marketing. With the help of our token “millennial,” Derek, we have made significant strides but we still need your help.
Shoppers use search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo to find products of all kinds. How prominently a business is displayed on any search engine is dependent on the amount of traffic it gets. Simply stated, the more traffic you get the more visible your business. One way to drive traffic to
In loving memory of JOHN "JACK" SCOLES CULLEN, known by his friends as “Jack,” September 27th, 1930 - October 5th, 2017, husband, brother, father, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather and patriot. Born Maynard J. Good, Jr., in Elkhart, Indiana, to Maynard and Carrie Louise Scoles, John was later adopted by Edward J. Cullen at the age of eight. Edward and Carrie brought him up, with his brother William, with the best of Christian values, being baptized and receiving confirmation. Jack joined the United States Marine Corps immediately upon graduating from high school on June 3, 1948. In 1949, while on active duty, he broke his neck in a motorcycle accident and was placed on light duty for almost a year of recovery. In 1950, when he was scheduled to leave the Marine Corps in a few months, President Truman extended all enlistments
Google charged us three hundred dollars for traffic or “hits” generated from our ad on their page in October. It was probably worth it because it did bring us some new customers but it is an expensive way to get traffic. When users access our site directly by typing in our URL (thecomputerfactory.net) it cost us nothing. If everyone reading this paper took a few seconds to visit our site, we would roar to the top on the search engines and we wouldn’t need to pay Google to promote our business.
Another method Internet shoppers use to choose between product and service providers is called “crowd sourced ratings” Rating sites like Google and Yelp allow customers to rate businesses from one to five stars depending on the quality of service they experience. This system works well for large businesses that get a large sampling of opinions but for small businesses, these ratings can be a problem. The Computer Factory has done over thirty thousand customer transactions in the past six years but only ten of those customers commented on our per-
and Jack received orders to Korea. It is clear to all who knew him that the Korean War was a defining moment in his young life. As he said, "it was at this point the Corps got real" to him. Arriving in August 1950, Jack was assigned as an M4 tank crewman serving with the First Marine Division in Korea. He had never fired a machine gun, or a 105mm howitzer; the largest howitzer used on the M4, but was soon baptized in their use while entering Seoul, South Korea that fall. Jack participated in the landing of Inchon and fought during the early days of the campaign, from Pusan to Wonsan to the "Chosin Reservoir,” surviving the loss of two tanks and many close buddies. Through it all, he always attributed his survival to God being with him. His letters home during this period present a stark reminder of how brutal war can be, yet he was always upbeat about his own well being in comparison to the suffering of fellow Marines or the civilian population he observed.
Like many war vets, Jack didn't speak too much about his experiences, except with his fellow Marines and, while he received the Bronze Star for heroism at the “Chosin Reservoir” for rescuing fallen comrades, he never considered himself a hero - the heroes were the guys who didn't make it back. Returning to the USA after evacuation from the port of Hungnam in December 1950, John met and mar-
formance. Six gave us five stars and four gave us one star. That gives us a so-so three and a half. Only four people out of 30,000 make us look mediocre. We remember those four buttheads well and trust me; you wouldn’t want any of them as neighbors. “Yelp Bombing” is the “new age” way nasty folks get revenge when they don’t get their way. Small business owners are often “blackmailed” by “Yelp Bombers” who try to extort discounts or freebies from merchants by threatening to give them bad Yelp reviews. Unethical business owners will “Yelp Bomb” their competition to gain an advantage. There is no defense against these tactics although Yelp sales folks hint darkly that they have “ways” to deal with the “Bombers” for a monthly fee. You just need to sign up for a Yelp
ried Frances Mae Brubaker, of Mishawaka Indiana, on August 29th, 1951. They went on to have four children, Patricia, John, Catherine and Charles, all of whom survive him today. Jack resided in Oceanside for the past 56 years.
Jack was a true Patriot and Warrior and served his country his entire life. First continuing in the Marine Corps where he went on to serve two tours of duty in Vietnam, including one with the Third Marine Division, eventually retiring as a CWO2 in 1973. Subsequently he worked as a tank / heavy equipment mechanic with Lockheed, Dynalectron and General Dynamics, aboard ship and then in Saudi Arabia, servicing the M1 Abrams tank, during Desert Storm in 1990. More recently Jack was active as a volunteer speaker at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, contributing his vast breadth of knowledge to young, future Marines.
Jack is survived by his wife of 66 years, Frances, his brother William, his four children and many grand and great-grand children. He will be remembered for his cantankerous wild side, his devotion to the Corps, and his faith in the Lord. Although he spoke gruffly, with no political correctness filter whatsoever, those who knew him could easily discern his care for people especially his loved ones. He would truly give his blood (and did) for neighbors in need. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Keep your butt down, Jack.
So we are asking the folks who know us and appreciate how hard we try to be the best at what we do to consider dropping a dime on us at one of the rating sites. We’d also appreciate it if you could stop in on our site and take a tour (www.thecomputerfactory.net). Check out our blog section. We’ve put most of the Cactus Jack adventures as well as many other stories on line. There are many other interesting reprints from our columns including how to avoid malware, why you should be careful where you fart and The San Diego Curse, (why the Padres, Chargers, SDSU, and USD will never be champions.) Tell us what you like and don’t like. We want to get better.

The majority of people impacted in this outbreak have been homeless and/or persons using illicit drugs. Hepatitis A vaccination is the best way to prevent the disease. Public Health is working to increase access to the vaccine for the homeless and illicit drug users through large vaccination clinics and small outreach teams. These “foot patrol” teams have been visiting areas in Oceanside where homeless people frequent and plan to return several times. Oceanside first responders are also being vaccinated.
