I met Mike about six months ago. I didn’t know he was a volunteer fireman until just last week. We found ourselves with some time to kill and we began to talk. Somehow, the conversation turned towards auto accidents. He said that although he’d been on many emergency runs to car wrecks, he’d never been in a serious one himself. I told him I had, and that he wasn’t missing anything. It was a bad joke.
Mike continued. At last count, he had been on the scene of thirty-seven fatal accidents. I stopped and let that soak in for a while. It explained a few things about the fellow, one being his utter hatred for anyone who would dare drink and drive. I could see how nearly forty fatal accidents would make a guy that way. He told me about things he’d seen personally that would give me nightmares for years. I’ve happened across a few accidents, some involving cars, some not. I always tried to help if I could, and managed to concentrate long enough to make a difference of a couple of times. But I always got the jitters later. I marvel at the men and women who can do this all the time, knowing when the next call comes in they’ll have to go out and experience it all again. I’m thankful that there are people like that, but I’m not one of them. He described several of the terrible accidents, and explained the techniques that professionals use to extract accident victims and start immediate medical care. The “Golden Hour” starts at the moment of impact, and every second counts. Mike spoke with well-deserved pride about his crew and the equipment, training, and dedication that they bring to bear in the fight against death itself. Surprisingly often, they win— The Paper - 760.747.7119
but other times nothing within the power of human beings is nearly enough.
As he spoke, I could tell that one part of the job haunted him despite his best efforts to hide it. He was a father of three. His oldest son was driving now, and when he’d mention a wreck involving kids—he’d seen a few—a dark look crossed his face. I quietly told him that my boys were just starting to drive too. Like all teenagers, they think they’re invincible. He look up sharply, “Let me tell you, they’re not.”
He’d loaded enough of them onto back boards, crying for their parents, to know better. He paused for quite a while, then blinked a few times. “You know, you do a job like this and you think you’ve seen it all. You can’t think of it as anything but a job, otherwise it’d eat you alive. You just have to let it roll off, man. But there was this one wreck we were called to… this one wreck…” …and his voice and expression both changed. I’m quite sure that he wasn’t aware of it. Part of him was already somewhere else—another place, another very bad day. Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12
•••••• Two families were leaving a house, all of them going to a social event at the local high school. The parents and kids from both families were all long-time friends. Just so they could continue their conversations, it was decided that the parents would all go in one car, the kids in another. A seventeen year old boy was driving the younger folks. Everyone in the little rural community where they lived knew the boy. He was a good kid, all agreed. Had a good head on his shoulders. The other parents were confident in his driving. The two cars left the driveway and the teenager took the lead. His parents and his friend’s parents fell in behind them on the highway. They had a few miles to go before they got to the school. The weather was good. The roads were dry.
About four miles south of the small town where the school was located, there was what was known locally as a “bad hill.” You can find a deadly spot like this in almost every county in the nation. It’s where a combi-

nation of hills, curves, or poor road design all come together to make driving suddenly, unexpectedly hazardous. They’re easy to spot by the multiple skid marks in the asphalt.
The kids were northbound, approaching the hill. The parents were a couple of blocks behind. No cars were in between them on the lonely stretch of highway. Some said later that the boy might have been going a little too fast. Some said he wasn’t. It was never proven either way. From behind, the father driving the second car saw his boy top the hill. As soon as the teenager reached the peak, his dad saw his brake lights come on suddenly. Then the car dipped over the other side of the hill and was lost from view.
At the bottom of the steep hill was a crossroads. A sixty-five foot semi-tractor trailer had stopped at the intersection. The driver carefully looked both ways and, seeing nothing, dropped into low and began to pull out onto the highway. He was blocking both sides of the road when the kid topped the

hill. The trailer was heavily loaded and the driver had no speed built up yet. He gunned the engine for all it was worth, trying to get out of the way. The seventeen year old driver looked down the hill and all he could see was a wall of steel and iron in front of him. He slammed the brake pedal and fought the wheel, looking frantically for a lane, a ditch, anyplace he could aim the car. There was nowhere to go. The massive trailer, still swinging out from the crossroads, had blocked everything. The boy fought it all the way in.
The car containing the parents had slowed down a little. The father driving knew his son had seen something from the hilltop. He backed off a few miles per hour. It was enough to make the difference for them. But when the second car came to the top of the hill, four horrified parents looked down to see the road blocked by a huge semi and the car containing

A farmer had walked into town to pick up some supplies. He bought 2 chickens, a duck, a bucket, and a large bag of feed.
As he was walking through town, on the way home, a little old lady stopped him and asked if he could tell her where 75 Petticoat Lane was. He told her to follow him, as he was going right past there. After a couple of blocks he said, "Let's go down this alley. It's a shortcut." She said, "How do I know that when we get in that alley, you won't ravage me?”
He said, "Maam, I'm carrying a chicken under each arm, a bucket in one hand, a duck in the other hand, and a heavy bag of feed over my shoulder. How exactly could I ravage you?”
She paused a minute and said, "Put the chickens under the upside down bucket,
their children--all of their children—skidding towards the truck, blue clouds of smoke rolling out from under the locked tires. There wasn’t even enough time to scream. The boy’s car slammed into the middle of the trailer and seemed to explode. Big chunks of sheet metal and glass flew in all directions. And the parents saw every bit of it. ••••• Mike was on duty that day at the firehouse. An alarm went off, and his crew grabbed their personal gear and leaped aboard their assigned vehicle, Truck Four. The initial report was that a truck driver out on the south highway had made a garbled and half-hysterical call over his C.B. radio. He’d had enough presence of mind to switch to channel nine, the national emergency channel for the citizen’s band frequency. Most county sheriff ’s departments monitor channel nine, and there’s a dedicated band of radio enthusiasts known as REACT who assist them, monitoring the band for whatever emergency message that might be broadcast. The trucker’s plea for help was picked up and the authorities called. The sheriff had two cars en route and called the fire
put the feed sack on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the duck." PREGNANT AT 61
A woman went to the doctor's office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming as she ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story. After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard.
"What's the matter with you?" the older doctor demanded. "Mrs. Terry is 61 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?" The younger doctor continued writing and without looking up said, "Does she still have the hiccups?" Physical activity
During a physical examination, a doctor asked a man about his physical-activity level. The man said he spent three days a week exercising in the outdoors, every week.
"Yesterday afternoon was typical. I took a five-hour walk through some pretty rough terrain. I waded along the edge of a lake. I pushed my way through about a mile of brambles. I avoided standing on a snake. I climbed several rocky hills. I took a few
department. Over the police net, an Indiana state trooper reported he was close to the scene and responding too. The emergency room at the county hospital was notified, alerted to stand by for trauma victims, no word on their condition—yet. Within minutes of the wreck a score of professionals were already in action, not a bad showing for a community of that size.
Mike was just picking up speed in the big fire truck when a call came over the radio. “Truck Four, what’s your 10-20?” Mike gave his location. The caller was one of the deputies responding to the accident. Mike had known him for years. The deputy called back. “I’ll hit the highway about a half-mile ahead of you. I’ll give you an escort, Four.” A second report came over the frequency. Apparently, the trucker rallied long enough to give them what information he could. It was nothing any of them wanted to hear. “Broadside into a semi…carload of kids…looks like a bad one…” Ahead, Mike saw the deputy roar out onto the highway and burn rubber in the southbound
leaks behind some big trees. I ran away from an angry mother bear, and then ran away from an equally-angry bull elk. The mental stress of it all left me shattered. At the end, I drank eight beers and a tall glass of Scotch." Amazed by the story, the doctor said: "You must be one hell of an outdoorsman!"
"No," the guy replied, "I'm just a really bad golfer” Our Society Is Now Doomed!
I handed the teller at my bank a withdrawal slip for $400.00. I said "May I have large bills, please"
She looked at me and said "I'm sorry sir, all the bills are the same size." When I got up off the floor I explained it to her ... IDIOT SIGHTING
When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'it's open!'
His reply: 'I know. I already got that side.'
This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, MS
lane, With his friend clearing the way with a flying wedge of lights and sirens, Mike held the truck’s accelerator firmly to the floor. It was imperative that his rig got on scene as fast as humanly possible. Truck Four carried the all-important Hurst Tool, the mighty “Jaws of Life.” Countless hours spend practicing at a local auto junkyard had taught the crew how to tear a mangled car apart in minutes, freeing the victims from the metallic death-grip of their own cars. Mike knew that nothing made in Detroit, Germany, or Japan could withstand the thousands of pounds of lifesaving pressure the Hurst Tool generated. At any accident scene, the Jaws would save lives…if there was any life left to save. The first speeding patrol cars were nearly there. The state trooper, approaching from the opposite side of the wreck, came on the air warning other rescue vehicles to slow down before they topped the hill. “You’ll be right on top of them! Back off before you hit the hill. I’m almost there. So far all I see is the semi. Wait, there’s something under the The Blind Hill Cont. on Page 3
We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, 'Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4.
He said, 'NO, it's not.' Four is larger than two.' We haven't used Sears repair since. IDIOT SIGHTING
My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter. She said, 'you gave me too much money.'
I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back. She sighed and went to get the manager, who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the quarter and said, 'We're sorry but we could not do that kind of thing.' The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change.

Other cars arrived from three different sides. Mike saw the hill ahead and began to ease off the pedal. The deputy in front did the same, and they cautiously climbed their side. Mike noted the scent of burnt rubber and brake pads in the wind. No gasoline, thank God. Mike thought there might be hope for the kid yet. He’d seen no column of smoke either. Maybe there was still a chance. If the impact had been at an angle, maybe the car had ricocheted off. He’d seen it happen before. But when he topped the hill and looked down, he knew that no such luck had been with the children that day.
Mike rolled his truck up beside the scene and pulled off in the ditch. Then he reached down and simply shut off the lights and siren. His crewmen jumped out and ran to the semi. The police officers were already doing what pitifully little they could for the parents. One look at the wreck told the whole story. The Hurst Tool was never even taken off the truck. They wouldn’t be needing it today. Not even the Jaws of Life could have made a difference this time. What had happened here was over with in the wink of an eye. Four kids… Their little car had hit the semi squarely in the middle. Their

roof, outside mirrors, window glass, everything…had been sheared off at shoulder level. Mike had a sudden chill. He remembered another wreck where the emergency crews had to literally search for a missing human head. The bottom twothirds of the car had carried on a few feet and jammed tightly under the trailer. That was the only merciful thing about the affair. The parents couldn’t look inside the car to see… The parents. The father driving had almost hit the semi himself. The only thing that saved his car was seeing his son’s brake lights, as if the boy’s final act had been to warn his dad of the danger ahead. They skidded to a stop just a few feet behind the remnants of the kid’s car. One man leaped out, ran to the wreck, and fainted dead away.
When the police arrived, one of the women was deep in shock, unable to give her name and apparently unsure of where she was. The other mother had already screamed herself hoarse and was now emitting only strangled, croaking barks. She’d already torn off her fingernails clawing at the sides of the semi. Mike told me that the parents were the only ones loaded into the ambulance when it arrived. The hospital had already been notified that the kids wouldn’t be needing their services. Mike wondered aloud why the shock

The Paper • Page 4 • October 27, 2016 Escondido City Manager Resigns
In an action that caught everyone by surprise, Escondido City Manager Graham Mitchell informed the City Council of his plans to resign no later than December 31, 2016, due to personal reasons.
Mr. Mitchell has been the City Manager in Escondido since December 2015 following the retirement of Clay Phillips. Prior to that he was Assistant City Manager from June to December 2015. He previously was City Manager in Lemon Grove for twelve years, as well as City Manager for three years in Farmersville, CA.
Checking with several sources. there seemed to be general agreement that no one at council or staff level saw this coming. There appeared to be a good working relationship between all parties. By all accounts Mitchell was a very professional city manager and carried out his duties in a professional manner. There are suggestions that even though the council members and Mayor Sam Abed got along well with Mitchell that Mayor Abed may well have tried to continue the type of relationship he had with Clay Phillips and, being a totally different personality and with a totally different work ethic, Mitchell may have been uncomfortable with that. No one remembers seeing any argument between Mitchell and Abed . . . or any other council member. No shouting, no table pounding. Assumptions by political observvers are that Jay Petrek, recently promoted to assistant city manager, will likely be tapped for interim city manager once Mitchell leaves at the end of the year - but it's too soon to tell. At least one council member remarked that Mitchell got a lot done in the short time he was here. He'd take projects and move them along smartly . . . cutting red tape and making things happen. That will be missed. All sources at city hall expressed regret at his leaving.
Arrest of Kidnapping Suspect
On Thursday, October 20, the City of Carlsbad Police Department responded to a 911 call at a motel in the 700 block of Macadamia Drive. The call was made from a victim who claimed to have been kidnapped in Escondido.
The 911 dispatcher obtained suspect information from the victim as officers responded. Sgt. Christie Calderwood observed a vehicle travelling southbound on I5 away from the area with a suspect who matched the description provided by the victim. A felony vehicle stop was conducted on the freeway near Birmingham Drive, with assistance from San Diego County Sheriff ’s Deputies. Three occupants of the vehicle were detained.
The resulting investigation determined that one of the vehicle’s occupants was the suspect responsible for the kidnapping. It was also learned that the suspect, 44 year-old Chula Vista resident Anthony Henderson, had allegedly forced the victim, a 22 year-old male resident of Escondido, to perform sex acts at gunpoint while inside the motel room. When the suspect left the motel room, the victim escaped and called 911. A handgun and other evidence was recovered inside the room where the victim had been held against his will and assaulted. Henderson was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on multiple felony counts, including kidnapping, forced oral copulation, and a no-bail felony warrant for violation of parole. Police and Fire Units respond to the report of a suspicious bag in Vons
On Thursday, October 20, at 9:54 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police and Fire Departments responded to the report of a suspicious bag found at a Wells Fargo Bank inside the Vons grocery store located at 6951 El Camino Real.
stage? Maybe. At an Al Smith Dinner, celebrating bipartisanship and civility and good natured fun? Nope. Out of place. Shame on Trump.
The reporting party described the bag as a black plastic, containing something that “sounded like metal and glass,” and that it was difficult to lift. The bag had been placed on a chair in front of the bank inside the store and appeared out of place and unusual.
As is the procedure with suspicious packages and to ensure safety, the San Diego County Sheriff ’s Department Bomb Squad was called to the scene for an evaluation. The team evaluated the bag and determined it contained two pair of men’s shoes. Bomb personnel declared the scene clear at approximately 12:25 p.m. Vista Business District Continues to Grow
Residents and officials alike are beaming at the upscale growth of Vista. They point to the trendy newly developed Vista Village area with attractive boutique shops and upscale restaurants with pedestrian friendly shopping.
Now comes another new feature, a five story building with a mixture of shops and apartments and underground parking. It’s still in the planning stages but city planning commissioners have already unanimously approved the plans which now goes to the council. City planning commissioners this week unanimously approved plans for a fivestory mixture of shops and apartments and two levels of underground parking at the corner of Vista Village Drive and South Santa Fe Avenue. Construction could start as soon as May.

I don’t know how this presidential election will turn out . . . but we sure have had a lot of surprises with our two remaining candidates. Most recently, I watched the Al Smith Dinner telecast. The two candidates were guest speakers in what, traditionally, is a bi-partisan fun event. Not so much.
I thought Trump had some great writers, great, funny material, and did a fairly good job of presentation. And then he crossed the line.
He used material that was totally inappropriate for that venue and that spirit. Many in the audience booed him, quite properly. I remember cringing at some of the things he said about Hillary. On a debate

I love being part of our amazing San Marcos community. Our City services and school district are second to none. And, although we often don’t think about water and waste-water services, we are fortunate to be part of the Vallecitos Water District service area.
Vallecitos consistently provides topnotch service and are cutting edge too! Our community is now receiving 25% of its water from the nearby desalination plant and Vallecitos currently recycles 1/3 of our wastewater to be used for landscape irrigation.
This innovative thinking takes hard work by everyone at Vallecitos and leadership from its Board to implement. This is why I am supporting Vallecitos President, Mike Sannella

According to a recent survey by Vista Community Clinic, there are some businesses in San Marcos that are selling tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, to minors in violation of state law. The licenses will cost roughly $190, which the city will use to make sure businesses are following tobacco laws, including restrictions on selling to underage users.

Beginning Jan. 1, stores that sell any kind of tobacco products including electronic cigarettes in San Marcos will be required to get a tobacco retail license as part of the city’s efforts to curb youth access to the products. All affected businesses must return mailed applications by Dec. 31 for the 2017 calendar year in order to continue selling tobacco
Increased compliance checks conducted by the San Diego Sheriff ’s Department will review existing tobacco laws regulating underage sales, compliance with state sign and identification requirements, and a requirement that retailers refrain from selling drug paraphernalia. “Compliance checks are the best monitoring technique because tobacco retailers risk losing their ability to sell tobacco products if there are repeat violations,” said City Manager Jack Griffin. Stores caught violating the ordinance up to four times in three years will face suspensions on selling the products. A store that has five violations in three years could have its licensed revoked. Any store found selling drug paraphernalia could have their tobacco retail license suspended or revoked.

of seeing all of their children slaughtered in front of their eyes didn’t simply kill the parents then and there. “I guess you never know how you would react to something like that. God, I don’t ever want to find out.”
Mike was looking at a wall while he talked to me. Or was he? He seemed to be looking at things I couldn’t see. I was grateful for my blindness to the scene. “We got three of them into the ambulance without much trouble,” he muttered. “One of the guys—he was the father of the boy who was driving— he was a different matter.”
The father had jumped out of his vehicle and kicked the debris away from the rear of his boy’s car. He single-handedly picked up the sheared-off roof and tossed it aside. When the police arrived he was still pulling on the back bumper of his son’s car and screaming the boy’s name. He was literally trying to drag the car out from underneath the semi with his bare hands. It took four men to pull him away. Four big men. When they finally broke his grip and wrestled him into the ambu-
lance, “Well, I’ve never seen a human being—man, woman, or child—cry as hard as that man did. He just put his face in his hands and howled. Good lord, man, it tore us all up. Just tore us up.” One of the deputies and a couple of the ambulance crew rode to the hospital with the parents. After they left there was still work to be done. A wrecker was summoned, a roadblock was arranged, and finally someone made the call they all dreaded: the county coroner was informed that he would be needed out at the blind hill on the south highway. Again.
The semi driver was unhurt, at least physically, and a deputy offered him a ride into town. No charges were filed. The men felt pity for him, too. He couldn’t stop crying either. He refused to go to the hospital. He said he couldn’t look at those parents again. They hadn’t even been aware of him during their hysteria. It was as if he’d been invisible. All they could see was the mangled wreck under his truck.
The wrecker arrived, and after a brief inspection it was decided the only thing to do was drag the car back out the way it went in. The driver hitched up to the wreck, shifted into gear, and pulled. Nothing happened. The car was jammed so tightly under the semi that all he could do was spin his wheels. One of the firemen suggested letting the air out of the car’s tires to lower it. The deputies and one of the firemen did just that, and the wrecker tried again. This time the car slowly backed out, grinding and screeching against the underside of the trailer.
had suddenly shown him something he still couldn’t believe. His voice became a flat, haunted monotone…but there was wonder in his eyes. Then Mike looked directly at me. “Do you know what happened?” Unable to guess anything from his eerie expression, I simply said, “No.” “Four kids sat up and brushed broken glass off of themselves. The boy who had been driving stood up in his seat and jumped over the side of his car, out through where the roof had been. He walked up to the first cop he saw and said, “Hi! What took you guys so long?”
Strong men averted their eyes and began to take deep, slow breaths. They knew what they had to do. The ambulance crew had left them a supply of body bags.
My jaw dropped, “WHAT?” ••••• The boy saw there was no way to stop in time. As the semi loomed closer, he saw that his car might go under it. He screamed for the other kids to get down, to hit the floor. At the last second he released the wheel and dove for the floor boards himself.
“The car cleared the semi. The driver pulled it about ten feet away from the trailer. We were all standing back a little way, just in case something would snag, break off, and go flying. The driver stopped and, well, we knew we’d have to look sooner or later.”
Mike stopped speaking to me for a moment, as if the wall projecting his mental image and

There was a flash and a helluva bang and they were all thumped hard, but he had managed to slow them down enough where no bones were broken in the impact. They screamed and yelled for a while. It was later decided that no one could hear them due to the hysterical screaming of the parents. After a while the air became stale inside the trapped passenger compartment—what was left of it—and they wisely stopped yelling. There was a little panic at first, understandably, but what everyone said about the boy was correct. He was a good kid. Had a good head on his shoulders. He calmed the rest of the youngsters, told them to hang on. “They’re coming,” he assured them.“They’re coming. They won’t leave us here.” And they didn’t.
The cop stared at the kid in goggle-eyed disbelief, as if a grave had suddenly opened and the corpse started chatting with him. None of the men moved. None of them could believe

what they were seeing. These kids were dead, and yet there they were, rubbing their eyes and blinking at the bright sunlight. One by one they climbed out of the shattered car under their own power, shaking beads of safety glass out of their hair and clothing. Then the spell broke, and the men at the scene remembered their training. The kids were swarmed from all sides by men who began giving them professional first-aid examinations, men who were hugging and kissing them, good men who were weeping with joy.
After a few minutes, the seventeen year old driver took a long look at his car. The reality of the thing was just beginning to hit him. “Geez,” he moaned to a deputy, “My dad’s gonna kill me.”
The deputy had just minutes earlier helped pry the griefstricken father’s hands from the boy’s bumper. He had helped half-drag, half-carry the man into the ambulance.
He’d tried unsuccessfully to shut he ears to the father’s heart rending cries. The deputy laid his hand on the boy’s shoulder.
“No, son. Your dad won’t do that. Believe me.”
The kids were loaded into a police cruiser for the tip to the hospital. They were being taken to a reunion. Before they left, the young driver looked around at all the debris, the mangled car, the battered semi. It was all coming home for him and the other kids. They began to understand just how close they’d came, and why their rescuers had looked so strangely at them. “I don’t…I can’t…uhh… thanks, you guys.” Only then did the boy realize that he and the others had been given up for dead. He paled, but managed to shake the hands of every man present before getting into the cruiser.
A deputy radioed the hospital and asked for the officer who had rode with the parents into town. The officer came on the air and asked what he could do. The deputy at the wreck scene looked at the cruiser pulling away with four healthy kids in it. “You’re not going to believe this, but…” And a minute later the officer burst into the emergency room where the heartbroken parents were huddled.
“I’ve got some good news for you folks…”

The project will include 126 residential units and about 14,500 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor, with studios and one- and and two-bedrooms apartments on the floors above. On the second floor will be a pool. There will be 268 parking spaces — four more than the city requires — and 33 of those spots will be on the ground floor for retail customers. Over the past couple years downtown Vista has begun to enjoy a renaissance with new craft breweries and popular eateries drawing customers to the quaint historic core.
The look of the building will be contemporary, with balconies, decorative iron railings, and wood trellises.
Construction cannot start until May, when the city expects to finish paving a new 128-spot parking lot a few blocks over on South Citrus and Broadway. Craig Carter, Escondido Chief of Police, named Top Law Enforcement Official for San Diego County

Creating Jobs in California
California has a lot of work to do to bring back manufacturing and lost jobs to the once "Golden State". Over regulation, high taxes and fees make the cost of doing business and hiring employees difficult in this state. As a small business owner for 22 years, I feel it is important to educate politicians on the impacts of regulations and legislation on hiring and jobs. There is some good news, however. This past session I supported legislation granting a state sales tax exemption on equipment for manufacturing and biotech companies which will create high-paying jobs and provide a $750 million shot in the arm for California’s economy. Since over 40 percent of the nation’s Americans with Disabilities Act lawsuits originate in California, this session I coauthored legislation to help small businesses avoid lawsuits through early compliance with ADA accessibility standards. I also supported legislation allowing employers to cure technical Labor Code violations before a court claim is filed, and a bill streamlining environ-
mental regulations governing certain road repair projects. These bills have all been signed into law.
I am also working with Go-Biz, the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, to ensure that entrepreneurs seeking to locate or expand in California can take advantage of over $243 million in tax credits available through the California Competes Tax Credit Program. I am cosponsoring a workshop about the program that will be held at Escondido City Council Chambers on December 8. For information and tickets, please visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/es condido-go-biz-california-competes-tax-credit-workshop-tickets28242383730 I’m very pleased that my efforts to restore our economy and create jobs have resulted in “A” ratings from the California Taxpayers Association, the South West California Legislative Council and the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB). As always, I will continue to fight for you in Sacramento.
The Paper • Page 7 • October 27, 2016 ACROSS FROM THE SAN MARCOS CEMETERY
It was a mild and sunny day in October 1996 and my husband and I were enjoying a cup of coffee on our patio. We had purchased the home in 1994 after selling our ranch in Poway. The many years of quiet, off-thebeaten-track lifestyle of raising calves, goats and Queensland Heeler dogs had gotten a bit too physical for our advancing years. We didn’t miss the quiet ranch life and actually enjoyed the hustle and bustle of neighbors and traffic. In addition, our home was located across from the San Marcos Cemetery, a fact most of our friends and acquaintances found disturbing. We, on the other hand, were fascinated by the activities in that cemetery. The crack of the 21-gun salute followed by the haunting notes of Taps when a member of the military was buried. The gathering of whitehaired mourners when one of their own passed on. And the saddest of burials, that of a child’s casket being lowered into the ground.
It was the latter case that we were apparently watching that October day. Youngsters holding strings attached to multicolored balloons, women and men with white-cloth handkerchiefs to their faces, and not one, but three, small caskets lined above three deep, dark holes in the ground. My mind flashed to the recent newspaper stories of the four young boys killed, shot to death by their mother. Our coffee turned cold, the bright beautiful day, darkened, we stood and mourned with the group of youngsters and adults standing quietly across the street in the San Marcos Cemetery.
Several years passed after three of the four Eubank boys’ burials (the oldest boy was buried in Texas). I became a regular visitor to the cemetery to visit my husband’s grave, which was located about 25 feet from the Eubank boy’s gravesites that had only three rust-colored bricks with each boy’s initial, last name and date of death to mark their passing.
Rarely did I see flowers or plants on the graves. I asked one of the caretakers about the lack of grave markers, and he told me the boy’s father did not want any other markers.
The whole situation bothered me, and finally I decided to look into it. Thinking that cost might be the reason there still were no markers on the graves of the brothers, I went to a business that specialized in gravestones. I talked to a sales person about why I was there, and she suggested one larger marker with the names of the boys and birth and death dates and some sort of inscription such as “Rest in Peace” or similar saying. The cost would run around $1,200 to $1,500, including setting it on the site. I thanked her and said I would get back with instructions. I knew I could raise that amount of money among friends, and I returned to the cemetery and discussed this with the head caretaker. He said he and his crew would put the marker in at no additional cost. So already a quarter of the money was raised. The caretaker, however, cautioned me that money and placement was not the problem. No one could do anything without the approval of the father.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The ‘I Kid You Not’ Man
Jack Paar, born May 1, 1918, was a man who wore many professional hats. He was an American author, radio and television comedian and talk show host, best known for his stint as host of NBC’s The Tonight Show from 1957 to 1962.
The father still lived in the area with a listed phone number. I called him with who I was and my plan for a marker. His answer. NO!
Editor’s Note: The writer, Pat Johnson, lives in San Marcos, as the story says, across from the San Marcos Cemetery. She is taking a writing class at CSUSM and her instructor suggested she submit this essay to The Paper.
We foune it well written and worthy of publication. (We would suggest to her instructor that she be given an “A” for her essay.

In 1957, NBC asked Paar to succeed Steve Allen as host of The Tonight Show, which had been renamed and replaced with various failed series in the interim after Allen had left the show for prime time. Paar hosted the program from 1957 to 1962 during the peak of the series' national attention. At first, the show was called Tonight Starring Jack Paar; after 1959 it was officially known as The Jack Paar Show. He often was unpredictable, emotional, and principled. When network censors cut a joke about a "water closet" (the British term for a toilet), on Feb. 11, 1960, he received national attention by walking off the show, not returning until three weeks later after the network apologized and he was allowed to tell the joke.
Paar's first words on camera when he returned was, “… as I was saying.” Paar’s emotional nature made the everyday routine of putting together a 105minute program difficult to continue for more than five years. Paar confided in comedian-writer Dick Cavett that leaving the late night show was the greatest mistake of his life.
My next step.
It has now been twenty years since the boys were murdered. Will they ever have markers telling of their short lives on this earth?
Paar also signed as a contract player for Howard Hughes' RKO Pictures in the immediate post war period, appearing in a few forgettable films. He got his first tastes of television in the early 1950s, appearing as a comic on The Ed Sullivan Show and hosting two game shows, Up To Paar (1952)] and Bank on the Stars (1953).
While I’m sure Johnny Carson fans will disagree, those of us old enough to remember Paar and his days on the late-night talk fest will agree he put the show on the television history’s map.
Paar had a rough childhood. A native of Canton, Ohio, later moving to Jackson, Mich. As a child he had a stuttering problem which he conquered. He contracted tuberculosis when he was 14, and left school at 16. In his book P.S. Jack Paar, he recalled doing utility duty at Cleveland’s WGAR in 1938 when Orson Welles broadcast his famous simulated alien invasion, The War of the Worlds over the CBS network. Attempting to calm possible panicked listeners, Paar announced, "The world is not coming to an end. Trust me. When have I ever lied to you?”
Paar was drafted into the military in 1943 during World War II. The Army assigned him to the U.S.O in the South Pacific to entertain the troops.He was a clever, wise-cracking master of ceremonies whose impersonations of officers nearly got him into trouble. After World War II, Paar got his big break when Jack Benny, who had been impressed by Paar's U.S.O. performances, suggested he serve as Benny’s 1947 summer radio replacement. Paar was enough of a hit on Benny's show that the sponsor, American Tobacco Company decided to keep him on the air, moving him to ABC for the fall season.
During the Tonight Show era, Cavett, a writer for Paar, recalled when Jayne Mansfield was scheduled to appear, they worked for two days, but couldn’t come up with an introduction. Finally, Cavett handed Paar a six-word intro: “Ladies and Gentlemen, here they are,” (referring to the ample-chested movie star. Paar had a familiar comment when telling a story, “… I kid you not,” which also was the title to his autobiography. Like Carson, Paar’s array of guests ranged from entertainers to politicians, but unlike his successor, he hosted a large number of intellectuals who Paar could certainly keep up with. The discussions were done in such a way that Paar interviewed the subject at hand making it very easy for the audience to follow.
Paar continued to appear in occasional specials for the network until 1970. In the 1980s and 1990s, Paar made rare guest appearances on Donahue, The Tonight Show (hosted by Johnny Carson and Jay Leno), and Late Night with David Letterman, as well as Charles Grodin's CNBC talk show.
Paar was married to his second wife, Miriam Wagner, for nearly 61 years— from 1943 until his death in 2004. His health declined in the late 1990s. He died at his Greenwich, Connecticut home on Jan. 27, 2004. His death at age 85 came just a year before his Tonight Show successor Johnny Carson, who died from emphysema.

In order to carry a canister of pepper spray for my part time retirement job, I took a training class. “How much training does it take,” I asked myself, “to point a spray can at someone and push the red button?” In fact, not much. Less than a quarter of the training was about using the pepper spray. The rest of the time we learned techniques to calm a situation without using the spray.
Before long a situation arose with an irate person. I remembered the training and calmed the person without ever touching the canister. There were tense moments when it seemed easier to grab the canister and spray away. In the end, not using the pepper spray was the best decision for everyone.
Social Butterfly Cont. on Page 11
For some, pepper spray is just power. For others, rightly, it is power with great responsibility. That’s how it was for David in the Old Testament. The prophet Samuel gave in to the people’s demands and anointed Saul as King of Israel. But Saul disappointed Samuel and God and the Lord ordered Samuel to select and anoint a successor. He directed Samuel past Saul’s own sons to the sons of Jesse in Bethlehem, and to the youngest and smallest of Jesse’s sons, David. The young shepherd becomes an understudy to Saul, but soon overtakes him in power and popularity. A rivalry develops and Saul vows to kill David. On two occasions, though, David has the opportunity to take Saul’s life. He decides not to use the power to kill and instead lets Saul go on. You can read the whole story in the book of First Samuel, but you already know the end. David, eventually, in God’s time, becomes King. David knew, with God’s help, how to use his power with responsibility. Even if we never carry a canister of Pepper Spray, or become the understudy to a King, it is a good lesson for us as well.

Safety reminders for the Halloween season
As you get ready for trick-ortreating this Halloween, please keep in mind these safety reminders: • Purchase only costumes, wigs and props labeled flameresistant or flame-retardant. • 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 batteryoperated 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. • Young children should be accompanied by a trusted adult and walk from house to house on sidewalks when available.
Halloween should be fun and safe for everyone and planning ahead can help make the festivities safe.

Escondido Public Library to Celebrate Veterans Day – Two events will be hosted by the Escondido Public Library to celebrate and honor Veterans Day this November. The first is Defeating Stress, an iRest Yoga Nidra meditation workshop on Saturday November 5th, from 1pm to 2:30pm, in the Mathes Center, 247 S. Kalmia, Escondido. The second program is USS Midway and the Fall of Saigon, presented by USS Midway Museum Speaker’s Bureau docent, Joe Ciokon, on Monday, November 7th, from 6pm-7:30pm, in the Turrentine Room of the Library, 239 S. Kalmia, Escondido. Library programs are free and open to the public. For more information on these and other Library events, visit the website at library.escondido.org or call Adult Services Librarian, Oscar Lujan at 760.839.4214 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Defeating Stress is a Veterans Day-themed meditation workshop presented by Melissa Wise, Certified iRest Yoga Nidra teacher, and designed for anyone suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or anyone feeling overwhelmed and seeking relaxation techniques. The class is open to anyone wishing to heal unresolved issues,
traumas, and wounds in the body and mind. To attend Defeating Stress, register at library.escondido.org/register since space is limited. To learn more about iRest Yoga Nidra, visit http://www.irest.us and find materials on a number of meditation techniques in the Library catalog at library.escondido.org.
Attend the lecture USS Midway and the Fall of Saigon and discover the crucial role played by the USS Midway during “Operation Frequent Wind” in 1975. As the People’s Army of Vietnam surrounded Saigon, thousands of South Vietnamese fled for their lives to the safety of the United States fleet just off-shore. The USS Midway received more than 3,000 refugees, many of them one step ahead of certain death, or long terms in re-education camps under the Liberation Armies. This is a story of fear, hope, and sanctuary for those South Vietnamese fortunate enough to escape Saigon during the final days of the Vietnam War. The USS Midway aircraft carrier of the United States Navy was commissioned one week after the end of World War II and was the largest ship in the world until 1955. It operated for 47 years and is retired today as a museum and memorial ship in San Diego. USS Midway and the Fall of Saigon is an important story, among the many missions in this ship’s proud history. Escondido Public Library and San Diego’s Old Globe present Shakespeare Saturdays, bringing theater to the local community through their arts engagement program, Globe for All. Shakespeare Saturdays pairs an introductory workshop that will demystify Shakespeare and Measure for Measure in the first session and present the live play in the second session.
The first Shakespeare Saturday event takes place on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Library’s Turrentine Room. Old Globe teaching artists will lead a Bard Basics Workshop

Keeping Trick-or-Treaters Safe
Halloween is a fun time of the year and everyone wants a safe and happy Halloween for themselves and especially their children. Using safety tips and common sense can help make the most of the upcoming Halloween night. Following are tips to keep children and adults safe next week, when accidents and injuries are more likely to occur. Enjoy your Halloween fun and treats! • Welcome trick-or-treaters with porch lights and any exterior lights on.
• Do not give homemade or unwrapped treats to children. • Use extreme caution when driving a vehicle. Be on the alert for youngsters darting out into traffic. • Costumes should be flame retardant so children aren't in danger near burning jack-olanterns. • Keep costumes short to prevent trips, falls, and other bumps in the night. • Try make-up instead of a mask. Masks can obstruct a child's vision. • Make sure kids wear light colors or put reflective tape on costumes for increased visibility.

Who needs a new PC?
Before we answer that question, there is another question we’ve been asked by several of our readers in the past few weeks. Who is that sweet elderly couple pictured above and what happened to the old picture of Nome and Paul? Actually we don’t know who the couple in the picture is, we found it on the Internet, but the reason for it is simple economics. As we get older, every five years or so we update our picture. Every time we do, Lyle Davis, skinflint editor of The Paper, charges us $25. We figured this picture won’t need updating for at least twenty years. That’ll save us $75. Who needs a new computer?

I grew up across from the Valley Stream Farm. That stream ran through our ranch as well. The main historic La Jolla tribal grounds were located on our place.

your existing PC or buying a refurbished PC may be a more cost effective solution for your home or business needs than buying a new one, and with absolutely no downside. New car buyers pay a premium to get a new car that will last longer and be more trouble free than a used car. With computers it’s a little different.
Cars have hundreds of expensive “moving parts” that wear out at a predictable rate. A PC has couple of fans and a hard drive. The rest of its parts don’t move so they don’t wear. 90% of computer repair expenses are for software issues, not hardware, and new computers are just as susceptible to software glitches and malware as older ones. Actually “refurb” PCs are more reliable than new “retail” PCs because “refurbs” don’t suffer from the “infant mortality syndrome” that plague “new out of the box” PC buyers.
We have long given one year “new” warranties on our own in house “refurbs” (trade in PCs that we originally built). As of this September we also began giving “new” warranties on the “factory refurbs” that we sell. They are that good. We unpack and thoroughly test all “factory refurbs” and then add free Anti-virus and Malware programs, Flash, Reader, VLC and a professional office suite. If we find any problem we either fix them or return the PC to the distributor. Any customer warranty problems on “refurbs” are handled by us “in house.” For over twenty years we have built new desktop PCs for all
applications from basic home or business PCs to very high end custom designer and gamer PC workstations. We also sell new standard and custom Asus and Acer notebook PCs and Chromebooks. While we can meet any customer need for a new Windows 7 or 10 desktop or notebook PC, we are finding that “refurb” desktop and notebooks can be a very cost effective solution for many of our customers. If you are thinking about adding to your PC collection, stop by or bring in your present PC for a free evaluation. Maybe we can show you some cost effective alternatives for your home or business computing.
Another factor that favors “refurbs” over new “retail” PCs is that the “refurbs” are a result of corporate and government threefour year upgrade cycles. These PCs are built to commercial “workstation” standards and are far higher in quality and initial cost than “retail” models sold in the “big box” stores. We began stocking the Dell and HP “factory refurbs” early this year.

introducing participants to Shakespeare’s language, themes, characters, and stories though theater-based activities. Registration is required at library.escondido.org/register.
Shakespeare’s play Measure for Measure will be performed live and “in the round” with professional Globe actors on Saturday, November 19, 2016, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Library’s Turrentine Room. This production is appropriate for ages 12 and older. Registration is required at library.escondido.org/register to accommodate the audience. The searing comedy, Measure for Measure, is set in a decadent Vienna, where strict Angelo wants to rid the city of moral decay. When he meets a young nun pleading for the life of her brother, things get complicated. Justice, lust, hypocrisy, and redemption take center stage along with a wild cast of characters in a bold staging of this timely classic. Acclaimed director Patricia McGregor makes her Globe debut.
Over the past two years Globe for All has performed for nearly 2,200 audience members. Joanna Axelrod, Principal Librarian said, “Escondido Public Library is so excited to partner with San Diego’s very own Old Globe to bring Shakespeare’s “theater in the round” to our community for everyone to enjoy. While both the Bard Basics Workshop and the live performance of Measure for Measure each stand alone, those who attend both will get the most out of the experience. We are thrilled to help introduce a new audience to Shakespeare’s world and plays in partnership with Globe for All.” Library programs are free to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street Escondido, CA 92025.

FRITZ ALSO KNOWN AS SHARON SUE FRITZ Case No. 37-2016-00020182 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate or both, of Manuel P. Ramirez. A Petition for Probate has been filed by Elizabeth M. Ramirez in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, 1409 Fourth Ave., San Diego, Ca. 92101, Madge Bradley Building. The Petition for Probate requests that Elizabeth M. Ramirez be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 11/15/2016 Time: 11 a. m. Dept: PC1 Address of court: Same as noted above.
If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statues and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a peson interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: In Pro Persona Elizabveth M. Ramirez 475 Blue Sage Way Oceanside, Ca. 92057 760.275.8563 10/27, 11/03 & 11/10/2016
