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 beau tiful wife and children

T h e y a l w a y s j u m p u p a n d down with joy at the mere sight of their Papa, opening their Manhattan home door a n d i t ’s a l w a y s a s i f N e w 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 feel ing 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, hard working 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 ”

A s w i t h m a n y p a t r i o t i c Americans, he believes in the American entrepreneurial spir it 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

T h e o n l y t h i n g t h a t w o u l d cause Louis to become angry is whenever a fellow coworker o r p e r s o n a l a c q u a i n t a n c e would ever dare criticise his b e l o v e d A m e r i c a , t h e v e r y country that allowed him to live “The American Dream ”

The older you get, the tougher It is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends

The war on drugs brought in more drugs. The war on terror created more terrorists

To n i g h t i s M o n d a y, 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 a t t a c k o n h i s b e l o v e d A m e r i c a n s o i l c a u s e d h i m 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 f e l l o w A m e r i c a n s , L o u i s Berizzi was thunderstruck and still trying to cope and process th is mo s t h ein o u s an d ev il b l o o d b a t h a t P e a r l H a r b o r, 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, wid owed, and taken away without a last hug, kiss, or final good bye

Central America

E m o t i o n a l l y d i s t r a u g h t a n d physically and mentally tired, Louis Berizzi slowly puts on his pajamas, kisses his chil dren goodnight, and retires to bed with his beloved and sup portive wife

Then, from a dead sleep, his entire family is suddenly star tled in the middle of the night w h e n t h e r e i s a l o u d a n d frightening pounding on the front door!

Louis and his family’s worst n i g h t m a r e s u d d e n l y t a k e s 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) shameful ly handcuffed and whisked off to an undisclosed location!

No time for goodbyes.

It is believed the Navy gave them food, water and fuel and assisted them on their journey.

During lunch at work, I ate 3 plates of beans (which I know I shouldn't) When I got home, my husband seemed excited to see me and exclaimed delight edly, "Darling I have a sur prise for dinner tonight "

It contains a nude photo of Nancy Pelosi

No last minute hugs and kiss es

No time for personal effects or private conversations with family members was permit ted

Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, thousands of Italian n a t i o n a l s a n d I t a l i a n Americans across the United States were arrested, and hun dreds were beginning to be imprisoned in military inter ment camps

E v e n t u a l l y, m o r e t h a n 600,000 Italian born immi grants 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 u n d e r P r e s i d e n t Roosevelt’s various procla mations.

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 f a m i l y ’s f i n a n c i a l a c c o u n t s are all frozen by the Enemy Alien Custodian

Unable to comfort his hysteri cal wife and screaming small c h i l d r e n , h i s d a u g h t e r, Lucetta, became traumatised and her psyche forever emo tionally scarred as she plead ed 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 wrench ing scenario as the patriarch of the family, the staunchly patriotic man who achieved the American Dream and who forever defended his adopted c o u n t r y w a s n o w t a k e n away from them.

T h e h u s b a n d a n d f a t h e r wasn’t a traitor or an enemy of the state

His only crime was being born in Italy But that was enough to classi fy him as an “Enemy Alien” and to justify freezing his financial assets, interrogating his entire family, and placing

As painful as it is to read, here, i n h e r o w n w o r d s , i s h i s 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 pan icked 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

A l t h o u g h a l l o f L o u i s Berizzi’s children were U S citizens born in America, an u n e x p e c t e d p a t t e r n w o u l d emerge even for the likes of t h e m a n d o t h e r I t a l i a n Americans everywhere.

Soon after the FBI arrested and imprisoned Louis Berizzi in a U S internment camp, the federal agents decided to ques tion 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

B u t s o o n a f t e r, t h e c o n s e quences of the anti Italian sen timent had now spread like a frenzied, uncontrolled wildfire across the United States after A m e r i c a o ff i c i a l l y e n t e r e d Wo r l d Wa r I I a g a i n s t t h e G e r m a n s , J a p a n e s e , a n d Italians

While David recuperates his pub lisher, 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

Hoping David Ross heals quickly and gets back in the trenches He’s one of the best reporters and editors around and we miss reading his “stuff ”

Being in the newspaper business is an interesting experience We are competitors yet we are all part of one big family /

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

Meantime, Justin and I, and a num ber 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

I believe Justinwas successful and got this week’s papers printed and took delivery on time I have iden tified several printers that could handle The Paper if the new Anaheim printer decides do aban don us and we’ve arranged for a delivery service

We loved working with Advanced Web and have been with them for over 20 years so we felt the new acquiring company betrayed the weekly newspaper community by their harsh and abrupt termination of services I rather imagine our long time friends and colleagues, formerly with Advanced Web, now feel a bit awkward and uncomfort able at the turn of events We know it’s not them, but the new company that has made life difficult for us

Weekly newspapers each have their own audience, their own demo graphics; they provide a much needed service to their community and we have advertisers who count on us and pay good money to get their message out to you, the con sumer We also have folks who do the graphics for our paper, do the billing, deliver the paper all of

“YOU CAN’T MAKE A LIV ING 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 din ing room table (the equivalent

Then one day, prior it hap pened

It was only a matter of time

In Joe DiMaggio’s case, it w a s n ’t h i m , b u t h i s o w n 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 news papers’ Sports Sections

I t w a s r i g h t a f t e r J o e DiMaggio set his historic and seemingly impossible feat of setting his 56 consecu tive game hitting streak in July o f 1 9 4 1 ( a r e c o r d w h i c h remains unmolested today)

Suddenly, none that mattered

On July of 1941, wearing a striped New York Yankee uni form, Joe DiMaggio was thun derstruck and his world sud denly 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 “ E n e m y A l i e n s ” a n d f a c e d lengthy incarceration in a far away military detention camp!

His elderly Mama and Papa in prison with no family sons and daughters, to hold

them, care and protect them in such isolation?

It was a fate worse than death, for all the DiMaggio family!

The FBI was doubly suspi cious: 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 f a t h e r a s t h e y i n t e r r o g a t e d him

To make matters even worse (in the eyes of the FBI) was the fact that Joe DiMaggio’s f a t h e r n e v e r b o t h e r e d t o become a U. S. citizen in his 40 years in the U S

He was an Italian national, not even an American citizen

F a m i l y p a t r i a r c h , G i u s e p p e DiMaggio, got caught in the xenophobic tide that swept his adopted and beloved country: America

Anti Italian sentiment and sus picions were now at an all time high across America especially against those who s p o k e ( o n l y ) I t a l i a n a n d (seemingly) did not care to become American citizens!

Such U S Italians were par ticularly branded as “overtly d a n g e r o u s s u b v e r s i v e s ” 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 mas s i v e l i s t o f i n f o r m a t i o n o n “ S u s p i c i o u s I n d i v i d u a l s ” known as the “ABC” List

The ABC List divided people into categories based on their likelihood of being a true dan ger to the U S nation

J o e D i M a g g i o ’s n a t i o n a l celebrity, unquestioned patri otism, and indelible national a d o r a t i o n a s a b o n a f i d e American hero to everyone i n c l u d i n g F B I D i r e c t o r, J . Edgar Hoover, himself The Yankee Clipper ’s timely inter vention 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 bur den

Even so, Californians pay more Compared to national averages, Californians pay a 46% premium for gasoline, (now approaching $7 a gal lon) a 37 4% premium for diesel fuel, a 73% premium on residential electric ity, and nearly a 50% premium for nat ural gas 47% of all Californians and 61% of renters report that housing costs are a major strain This month, homeowners with a $300,000, thirty year 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 pay ment of $1,242 Groceries just experi enced 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, every thing is up, increases are continuing there’s no end in sight

California’s tax and regulatory bur dens are a big part of this We have the highest gas taxes, some of the nation’s highest state and local taxes, and we’re famous for over regulation and bureaucratic red tape

all can be

should repeal gas tax increases the majority mandated through SB 1 and use the transportation fund to actually improve transportation as well as use part of our state’s surplus to pay for highways We can waive unnecessary regulations that make housing unaf fordable and that drive up the cost of utilities We should adopt broad based tax reform to reduce the impact of taxes and mitigate rising costs for vir tually everything

The 2023 2024 legislative session begins December 5th Making California affordable again must be a top priority

Assemblymember Marie Waldron, R Valley Center, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the com munities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista

Per Mile Tax Removed

On Friday, the SANDAG Board of Directors (after feeling pressure from the public) decided to remove the per mile 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 ride hailing (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

will keep you updated on the latest news but for now a win for common sense!

Travel Trouble shooter

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, follow ing 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 sev eral 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 fol lowed the procedure to the letter You emailed the airline, you called, and then you appealed to a manag er Air Canada promised to get back to you with your $528 vouch er 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 advoca cy 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 cus tomers

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 air line would trace the missing voucher That took another month

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

Q: After a recent ride in 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 state ment 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 metada ta, 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 provid ed "anecdotal evidence of the situa tion " That made me a little suspi cious 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 driv ers 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

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

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 con sidered the platform for transmitters and receivers But the idea of send ing 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 halt ed development of both transmit ting and receiving equipment, but immediately after the War televi sion was developed basically into what we have today The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began issuing TV transmit ting 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 elec tronic television demonstration In 1929, Farnsworth transmitted the first live human images with his system, including a three and a half inch 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

By 1955, there were 105 TV sta tions 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 occa sionally came in Iowa’s lone sta tion 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 televi sion 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 tele type 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 sta tion until 1954

Most stations in those days trans mitted 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

The British

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 elec tronic 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

Today we take TV for granted because it’s a very big part of our lives and is magically available 24 7, but you have to ask yourself, “ W h e re w o u l d w e b e w i t h o u t Philo's invention?”

Too close

A n d t h e i n c i d e n t f o r e v e r 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 s t i l l , a r b i t r a r i l y, l a b e l e d a s “Enemy Aliens”)

Despite Joe DiMaggio’s suc cessful 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 c o n f i s c a t e d b y t h e U S Government.

That his hardworking father was barred from the water front and his fishing boat con f i s c a t e d b y t h e 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, f o l l o w e d b y h e r h u s b a n d , Giuseppe, in 1946

J o e D i M a g g i o ’s P a p a , G i u s e p p e , d i e d o n 3 M a y 1949

Up until his death, his Papa rarely spoke of his detainment, c o n f i s c a t i o n o f h i s f i s h i n g boat, and nearly missed being forced into a U. S. detention c a m p a l o n g w i t h h i s w i f e , 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 moth er (whom he always called “Mamma” in Italian)

In late June 1951, Joltin’ Joe D iM a g g io le f t th e Ya n k e e s line up to be with his Mama, Rosalia DiMaggio

At her bedside, she had slipped into a coma

She never came out of it

But just before she died, when s h e w a s i n a c o m a , J o e D i M a g g i o w a s h o l d i n g h e r hand and said in Italian: “Ti voglio bene Mamma” (“I love you, Mama ”)

A t h e a r i n g h e r s o n ’s f i n a l 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 need ed to hear, before she surren dered 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

LIES, 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 dishon oured and unable to see and provide for their families committed suicide from deep d e p r e s s i o n a n d “ s e p a r a t i o n anxiety.”

It is, indeed, both ironic and sad, that while they suffered in s i l e n c e , a n o v e r w h e l m i n g number of Italian Americans v a l i a n t l y a n d c o u r a g e o u s l y served and died in the U. S. Armed Forces

The Pastor Says.

sonal accounts, and a plethora of evi dence, we in America in the mid for ties, made up of politicians, church men, and average citizens did not believe in the wide spread extermina tion 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 disbe lieve it

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 hor rors of those events with piles of ema ciated 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

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 over turn 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 indi vidual 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 rea son 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

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 Click on the video button for the 9/28 meeting and then on to Item 9

Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe!

It was here, where the former Miss Lena Riggi was a ser geant in the U S Marine Corps Women’s Reserve and was serving as a field cook at U S Marine Corps Base in C a m p P e n d l e t o n a t 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 cou ple decided to get married on

July

at St. Mary’s

S t a r o f t h e S e a C h u r c h i n Oceanside, California.

A month after their wedding, the newlyweds bid farewell in t h e s a m e C a m p P e n d l e t o n chow hall where they first met and fell in love

B a s i l o n e r e t u r n e d t o t h e Pacific to continue fighting in the war

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 ”

Just seven months after mar rying the love of his life, his n e w l y w e d b r i d e , L e n a Basilone was widowed

According to Lena’s niece, Fiddle Viracola, Lena would always say: “Great love only happens once. ”

A l t h o u g h s h e w a s j u s t 3 2 years old at the time of his passing, Lena never remar ried, which was a testament to the unwavering bond she and John shared.

She spent the remaining 54 years of her life in California, w h e r e s h e w o u l d c o n t i n u e serving in the U S Marine C o r p s a n d v o l u n t e e r i n g throughout her community

L e n a M a e R i g g i B a s i l o n e , passed away on 11 June 1999 at the great age of 86.

When she died, she was still w e a r i n g t h e w e d d i n g r i n g that John Basilone first gave her

While John and Lena have both passed, their love still lingers in the halls of St M a r y ’s S t a r o f t h e S e a Church

If you visit Oceanside today, the church remains in the same place it was in 1944 when the couple said their vows

T h e 1 s t U S M a r i n e Division dedicated a plaque at the church to commemo rate 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, commit ment, and sacrifice on which m i l i t a r y r e l a t i o n s h i p s a r e built and remind us to cherish the time we have with the ones we love

It is this same love of coun t r y, a n d f o r f e l l o w Americans, that ensure that we never again . . . experi e n c e w h a t h a p p e n e d t o Italian Americans or any ethnic group as during the Second World War

“The Internet” part II of II: The need for speed, cars vs computers

The 1962 Ford or Chevy family sedan had a top speed of 120MPH Sixty years later, in 2022, the family vehicle (probably an SUV) still tops out at around 120MPH Manufacturers could have, and do, make faster vehicles, but for the overwhelming majority of us, higher top speed is of no value Similarly, by 2010, most PCs could accept and process Internet data faster than the Internet could send it Like cars, for most users, higher speed provides no value,

Today, virtually every commonly used application or activity is avail able on the Internet That means that

John Van Zante’s Cr itter Cor ner

the speed of components like RAM, CPU and storage devices is irrele vant 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 fac tor was eliminated when we replaced the HDD, the only major moving part, with an SSD (solid state drive)

As the Internet has come to domi nate 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

* Three to four million women in America are beaten in their homes each year

ernments and corporations) have tended to maintain two to five year PC replacement cycles using the newer PCs as a “perks” for their employees The availability of these “replaced” high quality “refurbs” as an alternative to new “retail” PCs has also been a factor in slowing new “retail” PC sales Enterprise “refurbs” with their higher quality and reliability are stiff competition for new “retail” computers

We still design and build new work stations, mostly for higher powered special applications but most of the

PCs we sell today are “refurbs ” We have desktops, towers and ALL in One PCs for business and home workstations For mobility we have 14, 15 and 17 inch notebooks and for moving work between perma nent locations we have the highly mobile Mini Micro’s

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 ani mal 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

* One fourth of the women in America will experience domestic violence

Battering occurs in all races, ages, socio economic classes, religions, occupations, and education levels Battering is almost never an isolat ed incident Once someone batters, they're going to do it again and it's going to get worse

When domestic violence threatens, the Animal Safehouse Program is a safety net for the animals and a life line that domestic violence victims need to escape

We all know a domestic violence victim If you or someone you know needs help with their pets to escape call 760 560 6749

John and Lena Basilone taught us well.

T h e y w e r e b o t h o f p r o u d Italian American heritage

They both served their country in the U S military

They both loved America, as they did each other.

Unto their last dying breath.

SPECIAL THANKS Special thanks are extended to the “Italian Sons and Daughters of America,” as well as countless members of academia, all of whom diligently guided me with original sources and data

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 contact ed 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 t h e c l a i m , w e f o u n d t h a t t h e description of the events did not warrant enough proof that the pas senger created the damage, so we elected to refund the damage fee," a Lyft spokeswoman told me

Toilet Paper

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.

12 In the middle ages they used something called a gompf stick which was just an actual stick used to scrape

1 3 We a l t h y R o m a n s u s e d wool soaked in rose water and French royalty used lace

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 plumb ing

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 dis integrates 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

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 sev eral colors including black, red, blue and green

29 Beyonce uses only red Renova toilet paper.

Note: Standard practice with corn cobs is to go to the out house 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) !
