All of us have heard of the plight, suffering, and the wrongful mistreatment of many U. S. Japanese and Germans who were imprisoned within mass internment camps in America during the Second World War.

But relatively few Americans have ever heard of how huge The Paper - 760.747.7119

numbers of loyal, patriotic Italians who were, also, arrested and forced into internment camps.

IT WAS INITIALLY DESIGNED TO BE KEPT A GOVERNMENT SECRET. Over 80 years later, it is still a (relatively) unknown fact among most Americans today.

Even today, it is virtually a lost chapter, largely missing

from our school history books. And it was, initially, designed to be that way.

To be a secret, untold story of U. S. Italian-Americans who suffered in silence all these many years, back in WWII U. S. internment camps.

SECRET U. S. GOVERNMENT FILES. According to prominent U. S. historical

scholars, such as Lawrence DiStasi, this untold story was purposely suppressed and filed under the U. S. records: “Secret History of Internment of Italian-Americans during WWII.” It wasn’t until after 11 September 2001 that the U. S. Department of Justice (officially) submitted a (formal) declassified report to the U. S. Congress on its own involve-

LET’S TRAVEL BACK IN TIME TO SEE WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. Climb on board our virtual Time Machine -- and fasten your seatbelt.

As we set the dials back to 1941 America; and relive these historical moments – in “real time.”

DATELINE: MANHATTAN, NEW YORK, 1941. Mr. Louis Berizzi just got home from work and is overjoyed to, once again, be greeted by his beautiful wife and children. They always jump up-anddown with joy at the mere sight of their Papa, opening their Manhattan home door -and it’s always as if New Year’s Eve and 4th of July have just exploded on the mer-

rymaking scene!

This happens every time he comes home from work! And Louis never ceases feeling emotional each and every time, and always feels greatly valued and greatly loved, as tears fill his eyes in happiness amid hugs and kisses.

He is, indeed, an honest, hardworking man with a close-knit family and whose professional life personifies the Christian work ethic, along with the credo: “An honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work.”

As with many patriotic Americans, he believes in the American entrepreneurial spirit and, in fact, has his own office at Rockefeller Centre, among the complex business buildings between 48th Street and 51st Street in Midtown Manhattan in New York City. The only thing that would cause Louis to become angry is whenever a fellow coworker or personal acquaintance would ever dare criticise his beloved America, the very country that allowed him to live “The American Dream.”

Tonight is Monday, 8 December 1941, and he and everyone else have heard the unbelievable and God-awful news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, just yesterday, Sunday morning!

Such an obscene and vulgar attack on his beloved American soil caused him great pain and anger, as well as for his wife, and even his American-born children, who were confused and hurt over Pearl Harbor.

As with a stunned nation of fellow Americans, Louis Berizzi was thunderstruck and still trying to cope and process this most heinous and evil bloodbath at Pearl Harbor, with the heartless images of U. S. service men slaughtered as they scattered and ran about -helplessly and confused -- like mice.

And in one hellish instant, countless American families, pregnant wives, loved ones, and innocent children . . . were all suddenly orphaned, widowed, and taken away without a last hug, kiss, or final goodbye.

Emotionally distraught and physically and mentally tired, Louis Berizzi slowly puts on his pajamas, kisses his children goodnight, and retires to bed with his beloved and supportive wife.

Then, from a dead sleep, his entire family is suddenly startled in the middle of the night when there is a loud and frightening pounding on the front door!

Louis and his family’s worst nightmare suddenly takes place as FBI agents storm into his home in the dead of night and arrest him: “By order of U. S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt.”

With no further explanation, his wife and bewildered and terrorised children panic as they helplessly watch their beloved Papa (who is a ‘god’ in their young eyes) shamefully handcuffed and whisked off to an undisclosed location! No time for goodbyes.

No last-minute hugs and kisses.

No time for personal effects or private conversations with family members was permitted.

Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, thousands of Italian nationals and ItalianAmericans across the United States were arrested, and hundreds were beginning to be imprisoned in military interment camps.

Eventually, more than 600,000 Italian-born immigrants in the United States and their entire families were branded as “enemy aliens” and many of those (if not sent to U. S. interment camps) were curfewed inside their own homes from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. under President Roosevelt’s various proclamations. In addition to his arrest, Louis Berizzi’s office at Rockefeller Plaza is locked and sealed off.

And to further strangle off his and his wife and children’s life-essentials to survive: his family’s financial accounts are all frozen by the Enemy Alien Custodian.

Unable to comfort his hysterical wife and screaming small children, his daughter, Lucetta, became traumatised and her psyche forever emotionally-scarred as she pleaded and screamed in vain for a final hug and kiss from her Papa.

All of them, were forced to just hopelessly and helplessly watch in a most gut-wrenching scenario as the patriarch of the family, the staunchlypatriotic man who achieved the American Dream and who forever defended his adopted country – was now taken away from them.

The husband and father wasn’t a traitor or an enemy of the state. His only crime was being born in Italy.

But that was enough to classify him as an “Enemy Alien” and to justify freezing his financial assets, interrogating his entire family, and placing

proud patriot, Louis Berizzi, into a U. S. internment camp where he is kept imprisoned for months!

As painful as it is to read, here, in her own words, is his daughter, Lucetta, who would later remember:

“We were all sound asleep. My Daddy was in his pajamas; they told him to get dressed, as they had orders to take him away. No explanation was given . . . . They (the FBI agents) stayed in his bedroom while he dressed, so we had no time to speak to him privately. They did not even give him time to gather his personal effects or toiletries. We panicked and were greatly shaken . . . . Several days after his arrest, we learned that my Papa’s office at Rockefeller Plaza had been locked and sealed by the Enemy Alien Custodian, and all my Papa’s assets were blocked.” What was to follow, was also shocking and disturbing.

Although all of Louis Berizzi’s children were U. S. citizens born in America, an unexpected pattern would emerge even for the likes of them – and other ItalianAmericans everywhere.

Soon after the FBI arrested and imprisoned Louis Berizzi in a U. S. internment camp, the federal agents decided to question his daughter, Lucetta.

They asked her a series of questions: “Why do you speak such good Italian?” “Was your father engaged in suspicious activities?” “Was he a traitor?”

After intense questioning, she was finally released without being charged.

But soon after, the consequences of the anti-Italian sentiment had now spread like a frenzied, uncontrolled wildfire across the United States after America officially entered World War II against the Germans, Japanese, and Italians.

The FBI kept an eye on Louis Berizzi’s daughter, Lucetta, as she was old enough to work and eek out a living for her family as best she could, since all their financial assets were

Then the world suddenly came crashing down on young Lucetta --the still traumatised and terrified daughter who now had troubled sleeping in the middle of the night.

While David recuperates his publisher, Justin Salter, is doing not only his job but David’s as well.

That is no easy task. Since Evelyn Madison retired I’ve been doing some of the work she used to do and we have two other staffers who also do work that Evelyn used to handle.

This was brought home over the past several weeks when we were all wondering who was going to print our newspapers.

Advanced Web, our long time (20 years) printer in Vista, sold to an outfit in Anaheim. Trouble ensued.

For the first three weeks we did not get our papers delivered on time so many of you did not get your copies of The Paper until a day or two later than normal. Then the delivery improved.

Then, just last week, Justin Salter informed me he had been advised, with only one day’s notice, that the new Anaheim printer would not print his papers! Further, he was told that the new printing company wanted to focus on the lucrative government printing contracts in the LA area and they were going to “shed” many of their smaller papers. Which means us. The Paper. We got last week’s paper off on time, took delivery on time, and if

Meantime, Justin and I, and a number of other newspaper folk (The Coast News, the Poway News Chieftain, the La Jolla Light) were all in the same boat. We all were scrambling to find a new printer and arranging for timely deliveries.

After all, they spoke with their hands, had thick accents, often swarthy complexions, and seemed physically intrusive when they gesticulated and touched you with their fingers in making their point or opinions known. Many Americans of the era did not consider Italians to even be of the White race.

Thousands were now banned from “coastal zones” as possible enemy saboteurs and forced from their homes. Many were forbidden to have radios or flashlights to possible signal or use as transmitters. East and West Coast Italian fishermen lost their livelihood and their fishing boats. Thousands across the U. S. were arrested, and many interned in military camps.

And historical scholars agree: “They were targeted despite a lack of evidence that traitorous Italians were conducting spy or sabotage operations in the United States.” THIS WAS NOT THE INITIAL PLAN OF ACTION. What was the initial plan of action did not, in reality, play out in actual practise.

The U. S. was to mostly apply detention only to Italian nationals, not to U. S. ItalianAmerican citizens, or longterm U. S. residents of Italian descent.

DATELINE: SAN FRANCISCO & BASEBALL LEGEND JOE DIMAGGIO “THE YANKEE CLIPPER.” Joe DiMaggio was born in Martinez, California U.S.A, to Italian-Sicilian immigrants. He was the 8th of 9 children, all of whom totaled in gender: 5 boys, 4 girls. It’s time w share more. My offering.

With a family that large – eleven in all – (including Mama and Papa) you can be sure that Papa Giuseppe DiMaggio was in deadly earnest in laying out his plans and hopes for his 5 boys committing to working hard to earn a living. Papa DiMaggio knew well of what he spoke.

As a young man, family patriarch, Giuseppe DiMaggio, was a fisherman in a very poor village on the island of Sicily. As with many other Italian immigrants, it was economic hardship that convinced him to leave his Sicilian fishing village and emigrate to America in 1898 for better opportunities in life. After entering New York’s Ellis Island, he worked long and hard working his way west, to California.

In California he hit the big time: he was blessed with a job making good money by working at the railroads – making a whopping 10-cents an hour! (10-cents an hour back in 1898 is equivalent to $3.44 an hour today. That’s a

Papa Giuseppe finally saved enough to buy his own fishing boat.

His American Dream had been realised – “Ha! Only in America!” he said to himself.

Raising a family came easily now.

Until one day his oldest boy, Vince DiMaggio, dropped a bomb shell. In Italian he said: “Papa, I want to be a baseball player!”

To Papa DiMaggio’s older generation’s, baseball was not a legitimate job.

Italian immigrants provided the labour for American factories, stores, mines, building roads, dams, tunnels, and other infrastructures.

“YOU CAN’T MAKE A LIVING PLAYING BASEBALL!”

Vince DiMaggio went away to play in the minor leagues.

And when he came back in 1932 and spread his earnings of $1,500 on the family’s dining room table (the equivalent of more than $32,427.48 Papa Giuseppe today), DiMaggio had a sudden change of heart!

Three DiMaggio brothers became pro baseball players. Brothers Vince, Joe, and Dom were all major league center fielders. But it was the son, Joe DiMaggio, who would walk into the pantheon of the baseball gods! The world had never seen anything like him, before or since. Then one day, prior it happened. It was only a matter of time.

In Joe DiMaggio’s case, it wasn’t him, but his own beloved father and revered mother who would fall victim to a harsh reality of the times.

It all happened when “Joltin’ Joe” – “The Yankee Clipper” - was on top of the world, and virtually lived on the front pages of cosmopolitan newspapers’ Sports Sections. It was right after Joe DiMaggio set his historic -and seemingly impossible – feat of setting his 56-consecutive game hitting streak in July of 1941 (a record which remains unmolested today). Suddenly, none that mattered.

On July of 1941, wearing a striped New York Yankee uniform, Joe DiMaggio was thunderstruck and his world suddenly fell from the skies like Icarus, as he heard the news nearly 3,000 miles away: His beloved parents in California were in immediate danger of imprisonment and considered “Enemy Aliens” and faced lengthy incarceration in a faraway military detention camp!

them, care and protect them in such isolation?

It was a fate worse than death, for all the DiMaggio family! The FBI was doubly-suspicious: Joe DiMaggio’s parents only spoke broken English.

Joe DiMaggio, himself, along with his entire family, only spoke Italian at home, and only English outside the home.

The authorities had a difficult time trying to understand his father as they interrogated him. To make matters even worse (in the eyes of the FBI) was the fact that Joe DiMaggio’s father never bothered to become a U. S. citizen in his 40 years in the U. S.

He was an Italian national, not even an American citizen.

Family patriarch, Giuseppe DiMaggio, got caught in the xenophobic tide that swept his adopted and beloved country: America. Anti-Italian sentiment and suspicions were now at an alltime high across America – especially against those who spoke (only) Italian and (seemingly) did not care to become American citizens!

Such U. S. Italians were particularly branded as “overtly dangerous subversives” according to J. Edgar Hoover’s official FBI “check-off list.”

Just a few years prior, in 1939, FBI director, J. Edgar Hoover, had already assembled a massive list of information on “Suspicious Individuals” known as the “ABC” List. The ABC List divided people into categories based on their likelihood of being a true danger to the U. S. nation.

Joe DiMaggio’s national celebrity, unquestioned patriotism, and indelible national adoration as a bona fide American hero to everyone – including FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, himself – The Yankee Clipper’s timely intervention quickly quieted down the scenario.

But it was a close call.

Costly Golden State

As any Economics 101 student knows, when the federal government creates billions/trillions of dollars out of thin air, the result is massive inflation. That inflation has now reached a 40-year high, and those with low and moderate incomes are bearing the heaviest burden.

Even so, Californians pay more. Compared to national averages, Californians pay a 46% premium for gasoline, (now approaching $7 a gallon) a 37.4% premium for diesel fuel, a 73% premium on residential electricity, and nearly a 50% premium for natural gas. 47% of all Californians and 61% of renters report that housing costs are a major strain. This month, homeowners with a $300,000, thirtyyear fixed loan and an average interest rate of 6.02% had a monthly payment of $1,803. Just last year, the average rate was 2.86%, with a monthly payment of $1,242. Groceries just experienced the largest 12-month increase since 1979. Examples include the cost of a dozen eggs -- $3.12 last month, up from $1.71 a year ago. In short, everything is up, increases are continuing – there’s no end in sight.

Per-Mile Tax Removed

On Friday, the SANDAG Board of Directors (after feeling pressure from the public) decided to remove the permile tax from the Regional Transportation Plan. In case you missed it, last year, SANDAG’s Board of Directors voted to approve a $165 billion transportation plan, making it the most expensive transportation plan ever. One of the ways they planned to fund the whole project was by charging San Diegans for every mile they drive. I want to thank everyone who spoke out against SANDAG's per-mile tax. I know many of you have helped spread the message on social media and let your friends/family know about this ridiculous plan.

It shows the power of everyone coming together and speaking out against more taxes! While this is great news, keep an eye out, this tax may come back again. SANDAG still needs money for its $165 billion transportation plan. SANDAG's goal is still to tax people out of their cars. Here are the proposed taxes/fees SANDAG wants to charge.

• ½ cent sales tax – 2028 ballot, no expiration • An MTS ½ cent sales tax (70% of the County) • Creating a new fee for ridehailing (UBER or LYFT) $1.25 solo ride; $.65 carpool • 819 miles of new managed lanes (toll lanes) Also, SANDAG's plan is heavily

focused on downtown/public transit. While I support public transit, it's not practical for all of North County. SANDAG's new plan doesn't add any new freeway lanes. I believe that any new plan must include improvements to the I-5 and SR-78 freeways.

The Paper

Travel Troubleshooter

Q: I canceled an Air Canada flight more than three months ago. The airline agreed to issue a travel voucher, but it hasn't sent one yet. I've contacted Air Canada through its website at least twice. I've sent three email requests for assistance to Air Canada executives, following the advice on your website. None of the executives responded in any way.

I have not yet written the executive vice president or CEO, but they are the next as I move up the list. However, I'm reluctant to escalate it to that level without checking with you first.

Air Canada has never denied that a travel voucher should be issued. The airline has claimed both on the phone and by email that processing of the voucher is "in progress." Can you help me get my $528 voucher, please? -- Herb Sharpe, Victoria, Canada

A: It shouldn't take Air Canada more than three months to issue your voucher. How do I know that? Well, your voucher was one of several flight cancellations, and you received all but one within a few days. Something got lost along the way.

So what do you do when an airline overlooks something? You followed the procedure to the letter. You emailed the airline, you called, and then you appealed to a manager. Air Canada promised to get back to you with your $528 voucher. But it didn't.

You documented everything in writing, which should have made it easy for Air Canada to find your missing voucher claim. It's not clear why the airline was taking so long. You note that the original voucher was incorrectly listed as $548, and the difference may have confused the refund system. That's possible.

The only thing you can do is to continue up the chain to Air Canada's executive vice president and the CEO. I list their names and numbers on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. Had you stayed on that path, I'm sure someone would have noticed the missing voucher and fixed this eventually. Air Canada may be slow, but I'm sure it doesn't steal from its customers.

Your case raises another important question: How patient is too patient? I think you should always give an airline one to two weeks to issue a voucher or a refund. After that, it's OK to start sending polite emails asking about the status of your money. Three months is way too long.

I contacted Air Canada on your behalf. A representative quickly responded to me and said the airline would trace the missing voucher. That took another month.

You finally received your voucher and an apology from Air Canada.

Problem Solved After a recent ride in

Q: a Lyft rideshare, the company charged me a $150 damage fee for an alleged cigarette burn to the vehicle. I have sent numerous emails to Lyft informing them that I did not cause the damage.

I asked Lyft for the driver's statement and evidence that led them to conclude that I caused the damage, but I never got an answer. A Lyft representative claims the company has reviewed the damage charges. "As per checking the report made by your driver, it appeared that an investigation has been conducted and found that the claim was valid," Lyft said. "With that having said, please know that no adjustment will be made to this claim."

I do not smoke. Can you help me get my $150 back, please? -LeeAnn Hicks, Bronx, N.Y.

A: Lyft should not charge you for damage to one of its cars unless it has hard evidence. And there should be a system to handle any dispute arising from a damage claim.

I reviewed the photos of the alleged damage sent to Lyft by Timothy, your driver. They appear to show a small cigarette burn in the side of the passenger seat. But they are low-resolution images. The metadata, which would show the location and type of camera used, appears to have been removed. That makes it impossible to tell if this is Timothy's car or if you had been the passenger. And that's not the only thing that doesn't make sense. If you burn a cigarette in Timothy's car seat, that means you smoked in the vehicle. If that happened, I'm sure Timothy would have pulled over and asked you to extinguish your cigarette. But I don't see any accompanying incident report that claims you smoked in the car. What's more, you told me that you've never smoked. A Lyft representative admitted in writing that the driver only provided "anecdotal evidence of the situation." That made me a little suspicious about this claim. Lyft charges passengers anywhere from $20 for minor damage such as mud, dirt, or animal fur in the car, to $150 for "major" damage like biowaste all over the car or physical damage to fixtures inside or outside of the car. But it requires that drivers report the damage within two hours and take at least two photos of the damage. It isn't clear to me if Timothy followed all of the rules.

TV’s concept and reality an old idea.

The concept of television isn’t all that new. In 1927, Philo Farnsworth, a farm boy, conceived the basic system and today it’s considered the platform for transmitters and receivers. But the idea of sending pictures through the air goes back as far as 1895. By the 1930s, television had become a serious pursuit among several inventors.

American engineers weren’t alone in experimenting with TV. Technicians in Germany, Mexico, France, and England had developed similar systems. World War II halted development of both transmitting and receiving equipment, but immediately after the War television was developed basically into what we have today. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began issuing TV transmitting licenses. The metropolitan areas along the East and West coasts were among the first to establish stations with regular telecasting programs. KTLA-TV was California’s first commercial TV station and the first in any of the western states.

As a teenager, Farnsworth outlined his idea to his high school science teacher. By 1928, Farnsworth developed his system sufficiently to hold a demonstration for the press, which is regarded as the first electronic television demonstration. In 1929, Farnsworth transmitted the first live human images with his system, including a three and a halfinch image of his wife, Elma.

As early as 1923, Vladimir Zworykin was also experimenting with the cathode-ray tube to create and show images. While working for Westinghouse Electric, he began to develop an electronic camera tube.

At the Berlin Radio Show in August 1931, Manfred von Ardenne gave a public demonstration of a television system using a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) for both transmission and reception. On Aug. 25 1934, Farnsworth gave the world's first public demonstration of an all-electronic television system, using a live camera, at the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia on Aug. 25, 1934, Mexican inventor Guillermo González Camarena also played an important role in early television. His experiments with TV began in 1931 and in 1940, his work led to a patent for color television. In 1932, a British engineering team applied for a patent on camera device they called "the Emitron.” The British

Broadcasting Company (BBC) made its first telecast on Armistice Day 1937. On that date those who had a receiving set could watch King George VI lay a wreath at a World War I monument. This was the first time anyone had broadcast a live street scene from cameras installed on neighboring buildings. Farnsworth nor the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) would do the same until the 1939 New York World's Fair.

By 1955, there were 105 TV stations across the nation. Most states had at least one station. As TV reception was developed, the price of black & white sets came down to an affordable price for the average family: around $400. Picture screen size grew to 21-inches, whereas in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s, 12 and 17-inch screens were the norm.

My family got our first TV set in 1953. It was a 21-inch B&W General Electric, costing $425. It was a marvel to behold. Of course, in southern Iowa, there were only five stations where signals occasionally came in. Iowa’s lone station was in Ames, some 120 miles away. Omaha, along with Kansas City were some 180 miles away. If the clouds were just right and atmospherics allowed, we could get one or two decent pictures. Some stations didn’t go on the air until 4 p.m., which gave school kids time to sprint home to watch the test pattern or old cowboy star Gabby Hayes present his 1930-era flicks. There were a lot of Tom Mix, Hoot Gibson, Buck Jones, and Crash Corrigan “horse oprys,” but, hey, it was the magic of television … pictures out of the air and into our living room … for free!

The first TV newscast I saw was circa 1951, on Omaha’s KMTV. A camera was put in front of a teletype machine and the viewer “read” the latest news reports as they came across in ticker-tape fashion. Reception from Kansas City’s WDAF-TV, and KCMO-TV were fairly reliable but usually with a lot of snow. Iowa State University’s WOI-TV in Ames, the agricultural college, was good for learning how to prune a plum tree. Des Moines, the state’s capital, didn’t get a station until 1954.

Most stations in those days transmitted VHS (Very-High Frequency) signals, channel 2-13. Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) TV signals, channels 14 to 82, have a reliable range of about 25 miles; a VHS signal is approximately 80 to 90 miles. Des Moines had one of the nation’s early UHF stations, KGTV, Channel 17, but in those days most TV sets received only VHS signals. KGTV didn’t last very long because few viewers could receive it. Years later those call letters, KGTV, were issued to Channel 10 in San Diego. Today we take TV for granted because it’s a very big part of our lives and is magically available 247, but you have to ask yourself, “Where would we be without Philo's invention?”

Italian Americans Cont. from Page 6 Too close.

And the incident forever forged a scar in the DiMaggio family psyche.

The somber reality was that the elder Giuseppe DiMaggio – as well as Mama Rosalia DiMaggio -- narrowly avoided FBI arrest by the skin of their teeth.

But the strictures already in place necessitated that both Mama and Papa -- because they were Italian nationals and not U. S. citizens – were, nonetheless, now (required) to carry photo IDs (as they were still, arbitrarily, labeled as “Enemy Aliens”).

Despite Joe DiMaggio’s successful intervention, his father was, nevertheless, barred from the waterfront where he made his living. And his precious fishing boat, named “Rosalia,” (after his wife) which he worked so hard to purchase -- was now cruelly confiscated by the U. S. Government.

That his hardworking father was barred from the waterfront and his fishing boat confiscated by the U. S. Government, thus taking away his father’s lifelong livelihood and profession left baseball titan, Joe DiMaggio, forever indignant and deeply hurt. His mother, Rosalia, became an American citizen in 1945, followed by her husband, Giuseppe, in 1946.

Joe DiMaggio’s Papa, Giuseppe, died on 3 May 1949.

Up until his death, his Papa rarely spoke of his detainment, confiscation of his fishing boat, and nearly missed being forced into a U. S. detention camp along with his wife, Rosalia.

Between the 1950 and 1951 baseball seasons, the “Yankee Clipper” spent a large amount of time in San Francisco by the side of his widowed mother (whom he always called “Mamma” in Italian).

In late June 1951, Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio left the Yankees line-up to be with his Mama, Rosalia DiMaggio.

Page 10 • October 6, 2022

At her bedside, she had slipped into a coma. She never came out of it.

But just before she died, when she was in a coma, Joe DiMaggio was holding her hand and said in Italian: “Ti voglio bene Mamma” (“I love you, Mama.”) At hearing her son’s final words, Joe felt her squeeze his hand for the last time . . . then she slipped away and died. It was as though the words were all she wanted and needed to hear, before she surrendered to death.

Joe DiMaggio would forever recall this most painful act of prejudice for the remainder of his life, until his death on 8 March 1999 at the age of 84.

RELOCATED FAR FROM THEIR HOMES & FAMILIES, MANY COMMITTED SUICIDE Between December 1941 through June 1942, many interned Italians remained in prison even after the Second World War. Many of them, feeling ashamed and dishonoured – and unable to see and provide for their families . . . committed suicide from deep depression and “separation anxiety.”

It is, indeed, both ironic and sad, that while they suffered in silence, an overwhelming number of Italian-Americans valiantly and courageously served and died in the U. S. Armed Forces.

JOHN BASILONE “A MARINE’S MARINE.” One singular example was the highly decorated John Basilone (1916-1945), U. S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, who received the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor in 1942 for his valour at Guadalcanal. And later, the distinguished U. S. Navy Cross (posthumously, after his death in 1945).

It was here, in North San Diego County, where John Basilone (who would be immortalised in Hollywood film and countless books and newspapers) first met his future wife, Lena Mae Riggi. Italian Americans Continued on Page 11

Belief

What do we believe and why? Or don’t believe and why?

I just finished watching the Ken Burns documentary about the “United States and the Holocaust,” showing what we in America believed about what the Nazis were doing to the Jews during WWII. He showed pictures of the horrors of those events with piles of emaciated bodies, railcars of thousands of frightened men, women, and children herded together, being sent to the gas chambers, German guards beating and kicking the victims, and separating families for either work camps or the death chambers. Burns did a masterful job of showing man’s inhumanity to man.

Even today can we believe it? After all, we are a civilized people. We are educated, resourceful, and, even at times compassionate and loving. Can we believe what the Nazis did to not only six million Jews, but also to the gypsies, mentally ill, and millions of non-aryan people? What is interesting and revealing is that, in spite of documentation, per-

sonal accounts, and a plethora of evidence, we in America in the mid-forties, made up of politicians, churchmen, and average citizens did not believe in the wide spread extermination of European Jewry, nor even that many in the world supported it. Many did not believe it. Why not? Is there something in the human psyche that forbids such a belief? Do we have to see it before we believe it and, even after we see it, still disbelieve it? There are many even today who disbelieve it.

We live in an age of disbelief. Many can’t believe that Donald Trump lost the election. They can’t believe that there was an insidious move to overturn the election. They can’t believe that politicians lie, cheat, and deceive the people.They can’t believe that there is fake news full of propaganda. We can’t even believe that there are movements in our culture, working to undermine our democracy and individual freedoms. Believe it or not, there are those who believe the world is flat, that man never went to the moon, that human beings intermingled with the dinosaurs, that God is a myth, that there is no supernatural - only reason and science, and, of course, no heaven or hell, and that we live in this world without purpose or divine intent. Could any or all of this be true? What do you believe? Does it make any difference?

The Bible says that Abraham believed God and God counted it to him as righteousness.That seems to say that belief in God is essential for an ordered, blessed, and fulfilled life. That is good enough for me to believe. Pastor Huls Please call 760 746 6611 for counsel and inspiration anytime.

Vista’s Newest Rounda bout

Vista is adding to its roundabout inventory with the recently opened Vista Village roundabout.

The corporation CFT owns Vista Village and installed the new roundabout at the “T” intersection of Main Street and Wave Drive by the Wave Waterpark and Swami’s restaurant. Because Vista Village is located on private property, construction was managed by the corporation’s contractors. The goal of this circular intersection is to improve traffic flow and prevent drivers from making illegal maneuvers inside the intersection, additionally, roundabouts are generally safer for pedestrians. In the future, a public art sculpture will be installed in the central island of the roundabout after approval from the Public Arts Commission.

It was here, where the former Miss Lena Riggi was a sergeant in the U. S. Marine Corps Women’s Reserve and was serving as a field cook at U. S. Marine Corps Base in Camp Pendleton at Oceanside, California.

And it was there, where she first met John Basilone, as he stood in a Camp Pendleton chow hall. For both of them, it was love at first sight.

Just weeks after meeting, with Basilone’s inevitable return to the Pacific looming, the couple decided to get married on 10 July 1944 at St. Mary’s

Star of the Sea Church in Oceanside, California.

A month after their wedding, the newlyweds bid farewell in the same Camp Pendleton chow hall where they first met and fell in love.

Basilone returned to the Pacific to continue fighting in the war.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

On September 28th the council voted unanimously to approve an agreement with SiFI Networks to allow the installation of a citywide fiber communication system.

Essentially, every street will have access to fiber and the best part is that it will not cost the city anything. This installation will allow more providers to compete for your business. Additionally, it has a social equity element to it meaning all the neighborhoods, not just the ones that have a higher likelihood of more customers will be served. I think this is a great step forward for our city, and so I wanted to make sure the “word” gets out. It will take a couple years to install but we are on our way to be what they call a Fiber City.

If you want more detail, you can watch the presentation on the city website. Here is the path to viewing the presentation – City Home Page, City Departments, City Clerk’s Office, City Council, City Council Agendas.

He never made it back.

John Basilone was killed in heroic action, saving lives, on Iwo Jima, 19 February 1945.

Just seven months after marrying the love of his life, his newly-wed bride, Lena Basilone was widowed.

According to Lena’s niece, Fiddle Viracola, Lena would always say: “Great love only happens once.” Although she was just 32 years old at the time of his passing, Lena never remarried, which was a testament to the unwavering bond she and John shared.

She spent the remaining 54 years of her life in California, where she would continue serving in the U. S. Marine Corps and volunteering throughout her community. Lena Mae Riggi Basilone, passed away on 11 June 1999 at the great age of 86.

Before he left, he was quoted in Hero of the Pacfic: "We talked of our life after the war – what we would name the first boy and the first girl.

"She held up pretty well while we talked. She didn't cry, and pretended she was okay . . . I told her, ‘I'm coming back,’ and she believes me.”

When she died, she was still wearing the wedding ring that John Basilone first gave her.

While John and Lena have both passed, their love still lingers in the halls of St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church. If you visit Oceanside today, the church remains in the same place it was in 1944 when the couple said their vows.

The 1st U. S. Marine Division dedicated a plaque at the church to commemorate the anniversary of their wedding and to honour the story of their undying love.

It is stories like John and Lena’s that teach us about the foundations of trust, commitment, and sacrifice on which military relationships are built and remind us to cherish the time we have with the ones we love.

It is this same love of country, and for fellow Americans, that ensure that we never again . . . experience what happened to Italian-Americans – or any ethnic group – as during the Second World War.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. What does that have to do with animals?

Domestic Violence victims with pets face different challenges than those without animals in their homes. If a human victim escapes, the pets left behind are likely to become the new victims. Rather than make their pets the targets, human victims stay. The Animal Safehouse Program (ASP) at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) is the safety net for the animal victims of Domestic Violence.

Since 1997 the Animal Safehouse Program has been working with police, social services, friends, and families to provide a safe haven. Once victims know that their pets are safe, they can escape with their children and their lives. Whenever possible, ASP reunites pets with owners. When that’s not

the speed of components like RAM, CPU and storage devices is irrelevant as long as the computer can process Internet transmission in “real time”. Nearly all PCs made since 2010 process the Internet in “real time”. An HP or Dell PC from 2010 can be just as effective as a brand new Dell or HP PC? While it may be just as fast on the Internet, the older PC does need some upgrades to compete with new PCs. A typical 2010 Dell might have Windows 7, an i5-760 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB HDD (hard drive). Our goal is to make this PC as functional as the 2022 model Dell Inspiron i3910 on sale at Best Buy for $699 plus tax. The new Dell has a faster CPU and 12GB of RAM but the faster CPU and increased amount of RAM won’t improve Internet speed. We’ll upgrade our 2010 Dell by Installing Windows 10/11 on a new 250GB SSD and upping the RAM from 4GB to 8GB. The total cost of the upgrade in materials (RAM and SSD) is $80 plus $6 tax. We’ll add $120 in labor to install the RAM, SSD and the new Win10/11 operating system. The total for this upgrade is $206.00. For a less than a third the price of a new PC we’ve created its functional equivalent. The wear factor was eliminated when we replaced the HDD, the only major moving part, with an SSD (solid state drive).

As the Internet has come to dominate PC user patterns the useful lifespan of PCs has expanded to a decade or more. “Retail” sales of new PCs have slowed as the upgrade of existing PCs accelerated. As the pace of PC technology has slowed and PCs prices have come down, “enterprise” PC users (schools, gov-

Problem Solved Cont. from Page 7

Even if he did, there should have been some way for you to dispute the charge. But according to the email thread between you and Lyft, the company dismissed your appeal and insisted that you pay. You blocked Lyft from charging your card (smart move) and then contacted me.

You could have taken this to an executive at Lyft. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of the Lyft executives on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org.

Lyft should not be able to arbitrarily charge $150 to your credit card without giving you a chance to review the evidence and respond. If a driver ever alerts you to damage, make sure you take pictures. Make note of the condition of the vehicle and be prepared to defend yourself against any charges. The system Lyft has in place appears to heavily favor its drivers and fails to give passengers their due process. It can do better.

I contacted Lyft on your behalf. "After a thorough investigation into the claim, we found that the description of the events did not warrant enough proof that the passenger created the damage, so we elected to refund the damage fee," a Lyft spokeswoman told me.

Toilet Paper

Chuckles Cont. from Page 5

I would like to thank all of my loyal readers of The Paper from the bottom of my butt; mainly because it is bigger than my heart. •••• My Uncle Frank was a Conservative...................

My uncle Frank was a staunch Conservative, and voted straight Republican until the day he died in Chicago.

Since then he has voted Democrat. •••• “I thought my vasectomy would keep my wife from getting pregnant, but apparently it just changes the color of

••••

As always - - in an effort to keep you better informed, may I submit for your consideration these facts regarding toilet paper.

1. The first recorded use of toilet paper was in 6th Century China. 2. By the 14th Century, the Chinese government was mass-producing it. 3. Americans got the idea of using paper from the Japanese and packaged toilet paper wasn't sold in the United States until 1857. 4. Joseph Gayetty, the man who introduced packaged TP to the U.S., had his name printed on every sheet. 5. Global toilet paper demand uses nearly 30,000 trees every day.... 6. That's 10 million trees a year. 7. It wasn't until 1935 that a manufacturer was able to promise Splinter-Free Toilet Paper.

October 6, 2022

8. Seven percent of Americans admit to stealing rolls of toilet paper in hotels. 9. Americans use an average of 8.6 sheets of toilet paper per trip to the bathroom.... 10. The average roll has 333 sheets. 11. Historically, what you use to wipe depended on your income level. 12. In the middle ages they used something called a gompf stick which was just an actual stick used to scrape. 13. Wealthy Romans used wool soaked in rose water and French royalty used lace. 14. Other things that were used before toilet paper include: hay, corn cobs (see note at end), cotton rags, sticks, stones, sand, moss, hemp, wool, husks, fruit peels, ferns, sponges, seashells, knotted ropes, and broken pottery. (I would imagine that the broken pottery eliminated the need for hemrhoidectomies.) 15. Roughly 70% of the world still doesn't use toilet paper because it is too expensive or there is not sufficient plumbing. 16. In many Western European countries, bidets are seen by women as more effective and preferable to toilet paper. 17. Colored toilet paper was popular in the U.S. until the 1940s. 18. The reason toilet paper disintegrates so quickly when wet is that the fibers used to make it are very short. 19. On the International Space Station, they still use regular toilet paper but it has to be sealed in special containers and compressed. 20. During Desert Storm, the U.S. Army used toilet paper to camouflage their tanks. 21. In 1973 Johnny Carson caused a toilet paper shortage. He said as a joke that there was a shortage, which there wasn't, until everyone believed him and ran out to buy up the supply. It took three weeks for some stores to get more stock. 22. There is a contest sponsored by Charmin to design and make wedding dresses out of toilet paper. The winner gets $2,000. 23. There was a toilet paper museum in Wisconsin, The Madison Museum of Bathroom Tissue, but it closed in 2000. 24. The museum once had over 3,000 rolls of TP from places all over the world, including The Guggenheim, Ellis Island, and Graceland. 25. There is still a virtual toilet

museum called paper Nobody's Perfect. 26. In 1996, President Clinton passed a Toilet Paper Tax of 6 cents per roll, which is still in effect today. 27. Many Moslems wipe their bums with their bare hand – but always the left hand. They eat with their right hand. If you are caught shop lifting, your right hand is cut off forcing you to eat with your poopy left hand which pretty much means you eat alone. 28. The most expensive toilet paper in the world is from Portuguese brand Renova. It is three-ply, perfumed, costs $3 per roll and comes in several colors including black, red, blue and green. 29. Beyonce uses only red Renova toilet paper. 30. When asked what necessity they would bring to a desert island, 49% of people said toilet paper before food. 31. Queen Elizabeth II wiped her royal bum with silk. 33. If you hang your toilet paper so you can pull it from the top, you're considered more intelligent than someone who pulls it from the bottom. 34. Koji Suzuki, a Japanese horror novelist best known for writing The Ring, had an entire novel printed on a single roll of toilet paper. 35. The novel takes place in a public bathroom and the entire story runs approximately three feet long. 36. Did you notice that there is no #32? Do you wonder why? Note: Standard practice with corn cobs is to go to the outhouse with two red cobs and one white one. First you use a red one, then a white one (to see if you need another red one) ! PS: And you overlooked the ever popular Sears catalog (maybe that was #32). It did provide a pleasant change from the cobs, though the slick pages really sucked at cleaning.

Now aren't you happy that The Paper keeps you posted on important stuff?
