Chances are that sometime within the next 12 months someone you know will die. It could even happen within your own household. It’s a fact of life - particularly those of us who are in our “middle earlies.” Colleagues die, family members, both close family members as well as distant family members, neighbors, workmates, friends and acquaintences - someone we know will die within the next 12 months.
Do you know what to do if/when that time comes? And if that event occurs within your household . . . or with family members? Most of us probably are not prepared.
We talked with a number of North County Funeral Directors to learn what you need to know. With information we gathered from them, we try to help you deal with probably the most difficult task(s) you may be required to address. Generally, all mortuaries agreed as to steps to take and procedures to follow:
From Linda Allen, President of Allen Brothers Mortuary, with chapels in San Marcos and Vista:
“If the death is an unexpected death, call the paramedics, sheriff's department, or police department . . . for investigation. If expected, call your hospice representative, or call the mortuary directly.
The Medical Examiner does not get involved unless there is a suspicious death, accidental, homicide, or suicide. Once you have contacted the mortuary of your choice they will obtain preliminary information from the family, often prior to coming to the house. The information they will need will include the address of where the person died, his or her name, time of death or time decedent was found. If the person passed away during the night then you will want to register the time the body was found.
The mortuary will want to know the The Paper - 760.747.7119
name of decedent’s doctor, next of kin, type of burial service, traditional? Cremation? Will the family want viewing arranged? Will embalming be needed? Embalming in California is not legally required. Some states require, CA. does not.”
laws - regarding autopsy. If physical evidence shows probable cause of death, the autopsy can be waived.
“When the Medical Examiner is called - and if the decedent was young and healthy, the Medical Examiner will pick them up and take for an autopsy; if under a doctor's care and there is a lot of history, the Medical Examiner will check health records and talk to the doctor and may waive autopsy and release the body; if taken to the Medical Examiner’s office the family should call their mortuary and the mortuary will arrange for pickup. Every state has different
In addition to Linda Allen and Megan Comer, we spoke with Richard Jungas, owner of California Funeral Alternatives, serving Escondido and Poway, with Sandra Pena, McLeod Mortuary, Escondido, with Isabel Velaree, El Camino Memorial, Encinitas.
Megan Comer, of AlhiserComer Mortuary, Escondido, generally agrees and adds:
Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12
If decedent is on hospice or has a doctor, then call hospice first; they contact mortuary - hospice would pronounce. You may call the mortuary, who will pick up decedent, call the doctor and get cause of death and/or sign death certificate.
When planning for disposition of the decedent the family
needs to decide whether they want a traditional funeral or cremation.
Richard Jungas, California Funeral Alternatives: “The trend is toward cremation. We do both traditional funerals and cremations but cremations represent 85% of our service; in the county cremations represent 70%; at the state level we are seeing 65%; nationwide the figure is at about 50%. It’s a definite upward trend. 15-20 years ago cremations represented about 20% of dispositions. The trend is nationwide; we see about an 80% rate of cremaions in Washington state and Oregon, about 60% throughout all of California. What many people are not aware of is the differing religious and cultural traditions that are observed at funerals.

Dick Jungas: “Buddhists, for example, employ cremation but they must be present at the cremation. Often, they will hold an all day ceremony, provide food for monks as well as those attending the ceremonies; they have to witness the body go into the cremation chamber. Part of the tradition includes someone in the family pushes the button to start the cremation. This symbolizes the past, as in India, where they light the funeral pyre. Other cultures have different practices, all of which we observe and accommodate. At Muslim funerals they practice burials, not cremation. They do not embalm the body. They have a certain way of shrouding the body when placed in the casket and their caskets are designed to decompose into the ground. They do not use metal caskets.
More and more churches and religious organizations are turning to cremation. The Catholic Church now accepts cremation where they didn't a few years ago. There are some restrictions, however, they don't allow scattering at sea or keeping ashes at home. We are seeing more and more cremations within the Mormon Church; the Jehovah’s Witnesses have very strict rules about their funeral practices. You cannot bring the body in cremated form or casket into their worship building. They always hold a graveside service. There is an old Jewish tradition that held a decedent should be buried with-

in 24 hours of death but for practical reasons that is becoming more and more difficult. Often, it is not possible to get a death certificate in that short of a time. Durng the week, maybe, but on the weekends, very difficult. This tradition goes back to when Jews would die in the old country, often in a more rural setting, or in a small town. In today’s society and governmental rules and regulations - it often becomes difficult. Megan Comer, AlhiserComer: We provide services for a variety of religious and cultural beliefs and practices as well as the traditional funeral and cremations.
We do or have done Jewish funerals, Muslim, Catholic, Protestant, Russian Orthodox, Serbian Orthodox . . .we always try to accommodate the family in whichever cultural tradition they practice and prefer. Each funeral service may have different requirements: incense, preparation, clothing, themes, it is part of our training as funeral directors to be sensitive to these needs.
In a traditional Catholic service, for example, typically we see a Rosary/Viewing period, then the next morning mass and burial. Sandra Pena, McLeod Mortuary: “We probably do about 40% cremations - usually 50/50 but we tend the more traditonal funerals If I Die Before I Wake Cont. on Page 3

'Circumcised'
A teacher noticed that a little boy at the back of class was scratching his crotch, and not paying attention. She went back to find out what was going on. He was quite embarrassed and whispered that he had just recently been circumcised and he was quite itchy. The teacher told him to go down to the principal's office.
He was told to telephone his mother and ask her what he should do about it. He did and returned to his class. Suddenly, there was a commotion at the back of the room.
She went back to investigate only to find him sitting at his desk with his 'private part' hanging out.
'I thought I told you to call your mum!' she said. 'I did,' he said, 'And she told me that if I could stick it out until lunchtime, she'd come and pick me up from school.” Activity Center
Dan and Stan were sitting on a bench, wondering what to do. They only had $5 between them and they wanted to do something fun. Five dollars wasn't enough to go to the movies, get drinks at a bar, eat a nice meal or anything they liked to do.
Exasperated, Stan says "just give me the $5, I'll go in that Rite-Aid and find something. Just trust me, I'll figure something out." Dan gives him the five and waits outside. A few minutes later, Stan emerges with a huge smile on his face. "Dan! I found the perfect thing! It's so awesome, you're never going to believe it!" "OK...what did you get?" Stan proudly holds out a box of tampons. Dan says "What the hell did you get those for?!" Stan says "Dude, read the side of the box. With these, we can go swimming, we can go horseback riding, we can play tennis...." The Tip
An old man stops by a cafe for breakfast. After paying the tab, he checks his pockets and leaves three pennies for a tip.
As he strides toward the door, his waitress muses, only half to herself, "You know, you can tell a lot about a man by the tip he leaves."
The old man turns around, curiosity getting the better of him. "Oh, really?
Tell me, what does my tip say?"
"Well, this penny tells me you're a thrifty man." Barely able to conceal his pride, the man utters, "Hmm, true enough."
"And this penny, it tells me you're a bachelor."
Surprised at her perception, he says, "Well, that's true, too." "And the third penny tells me that your father was also a bachelor." Senior Dress Code
Many of us 'Old Folks' (over 40) are quite confused today about how we should present ourselves. Feeling 'young', we try to conform to current fashions and present a youthful image. Contrary to what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided: 1. A nose ring and bifocals 2.. Spiked hair and bald spots 3. A pierced tongue and dentures 4. Miniskirts and support hose 5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads 6. Speedo's and cellulite 7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar 8.

than cremations. We provide services for many different cultural and religious beliefs. One practice we see is from the Filipino community. They have two to three days of viewing in the home or at the mortuary. They will have us bring the loved one into the mortuary and prepare the individual for viewing - then they have the option of holding the viewing at home or at our mortuary. This is also commonly seen within the Hispanic community. They often have viewing at home, then the next day they go to church, followed by burial. In Mexico, the hospital issues death certificate . . . here it takes a day or two . . . we accommodate those traditions, including overnight visitation.

All mortuaries pretty much agree on services offered to veterans and their families. It is important to know some basic facts:
The family will need to provide the veteran’s form DD214. This proves the veteran is a veteran and is entitled to full VA honors, which includes a US flag and military honors, plus burial at a national cemetery such as the new Miramar Veterans Cemetery, or Rosecrans (cremains only; no room left for traditional burial) or in Riverside County. A headstone is included with the burial. Many families are not aware of veteran benefits until the mortuary explains it to them, and,

The Paper • Page 4 • November 3, 2016 Golden Door Files Lawsut Against Vallecitos Water District
Golden Door Properties, a limited liability company which operates the Golden Door Spa, has filed a lawsuit against the Vallecitos Water District petitioning for a writ of mandate and injunctive relief.
The suit revolves around the recent vote taken by the Board of Directors of the District in which the board declined to raise water rates to rateholders, by a 3-2 vote.
Golden Door argues in its petition that the district is selling water for less than it pays for it and that this practice will erode the financial reserves of the district as the district is essentially paying for the difference between their wholesale cost of water and what they are charging their rate payers.
Vallecitos doesn’t have any of its own water, so it resells water it buys from distant rivers or from the new desalination plant in Carlsbad. The cost to get water has risen, particularly because of the expensive desalinated water the district pays for, but the board has not passed along those costs to customers. Mike Sannella is the board’s chairman and he voted against a rate increase this year. He believes the board and the district’s staff should work harder to save money before it asks for money from customers. “We haven’t gone through the process to make the cuts yet, and staff has been reluctant to do so, and in some cases refuses to do so,” Sannella said, though he acknowledges they might not find enough new money and rates may still rise.
The average Vallecitos customer uses 12 units of water each month. A unit is 748 gallons. This year, Vallecitos paid $40.32 to buy that much water and then resold the water for $38.72, a $1.60 loss.
That’s pocket change for one customer but adds up for the district. To pay operating costs, the district has been withdrawing millions from its reserve funds.
Other water agencies have taken money out of savings to protect customers from rate shock, but they usually do so with plans to eventually break even. Vallecitos does not yet have such a plan. In Vallecitos, the low rates have become an issue in this fall’s water board elections. Depending on who you ask, the low rates are a prudent move to protect ratepayers, a political stunt, or a longterm problem that endangers the whole district’s financial health.
What helped bring this issue up was the board’s recent Assurance Letter to the Newland Project, which the plaintiffs argue is contrary to established law. They claim undefined “water conservation measures” (rationing) required for excessive development, as well as misrepresentations in water usage computations were used in error in granting the Assurance Letter to the Newland Sierra Project, which, claim the plaintiffs, creates a population center larger than the enite city of of Del Mar. Retiring board member Jim Hernandez and present board member and candidate for re-electdion, Betty Evans, both voted for the rate increase. Evans is competing with real estate agent Kelly Crews who opposes a rate increase, and retired engineer Mike Hunsaker, who supports it. Escondido Incumbent City Council Candidate Draws Ire of Animal Activists
Escondido City Council Member Mike Morasco had drawn the angry attention of those animal activists who are deteremined to put Puppy Mills and retail stores that support Puppy Mills out of business.
No luck. Called AAA. (If you don't have AAA your really should. They saved my bacon on several occasions.)
Had a superb driver from AAA arrive, Humberto Arce, from Sky Towing. I've used Sky Towing before and they are superb! Their drivers treat you like family the minute they arrive. He hooked up my car, towed me to a repair shop, then drove me home, dropped me off right in front of my house.
Man About Town
Lots of items this week . . . and lots of bouquets to throw out to people who really are an asset to this North San Diego County community.
First bouquet . . . to the folks at Sky Towing. Seldom have I seen a company that is more customer service oriented. Last Thursday evening I had a business meeting in San Diego. I hate driving in the dark but had no choice. Finished the meeting, headed home, turned off from N15 to Via Rancho Parkway; as I slowed down my car belched and shuddered. I kept driving though the engine seemed to be running a bit rough. Headed past San Pasqual High School, check engine light came on . . kept going . . . then the engine flat out stopped. And the battery light came on as well. Pulled off to the side ramp. Tried to restart the car.
Curious, the next morning I called the owner of Sky Towing, Nash Maroki. I was surprised to learn that Sky Towing has 45 tow trucks! Surprised . . . but knowing how well he hires people, how well he trains them, and how well the entire team handles customer service, I was no longer surprised at the wonderful growth of his company. You treat people right, you’ll succeed.
I also called the folks at AAA to let them know what a great contractor they had in Sky Towing and that if/when I ever need roadside assistance again I shall definitely request Sky Towing. First Class Service!
The next morning I rented a car from my favorite car rental place, Bargain Rent-A-Car, 317 S. Escondido Blvd., Escondido. As usual, Kathy answered the phone in her cheery voice, drove over to the house and picked me up and I soon
It was revealed that Councilmember Morasco had accepted donations of at least $4,000, this quarter, from retail merchants that were actively involved in selling pups and dogs that allegedly were from Puppy Mills. David Salinas, the principal, who owns Mini Toy Puppies, San Marcos, National City Puppy, National City, and The Fancy Puppy of Corona, CA. donated $3000 from each establishment with an additional $500 coming from Kayla Kerr, Riverside, Ca., who is listed as Vice President of Operations of The Fancy Puppy, and $500 from Josh Steggal, a Fancy Puppy associate. Morasco and Mayor Sam Abed had been contaced by activists who were seeking support for legislation banning puppy and dogs sales at the retail level unless they were from rescue organizations or Humane Societies. They were not encouraged to pursue legislation.
Many San Diego cities have passed legislation that bans the sale of animals brought in from “Puppy Mills,” including San Marcos and Oceanside as well as the city of San Diego. There seems to be organized opposition to Councilmember Morasco based on his acceptance of these funds from the most prominent person in San Diego associated with alleged Puppy Mill sales.
The Paper had endorsed Mike Morasco for re-electdion but, given these latest findings, has opted to rescind that endorsement. “The Paper cannot support or endorse any candidate who is in the pocket of the Puppy Mill industry,” said lyle e davis, editor and publisher of The Paper. “We endorsed him based on his experience in office; we are aware that he does not particularly like us, or The Paper, and even though we disagreed philosophically on several issues, we put that aside and endorsed him. This, however, is a deal breaker. Anyone who supports puppy mills, directly or indirectly, will get no support from us.”
had the keys to a spiffy little red roadster. They, too, are a great company to deal with.
Second bouquet . . . as many of you are aware we came very close to losing our eldest son a bit over a month ago. He had gone into a diabetic coma and had been in that coma for several hours before we discovered him. As the EMT’s wheeled him out of the home, into the ambulance, I pretty much lost it. I was certain I had lost my eldest son, that he would not possibly survive. (For all diabetics out there . . . his blood sugar was 25. I, too, am a diabetic and the lowest I’ve ever been is 45 . . . and I was on the verge of a coma.). Came a week in hospital and then he was transferred to a nursing home. This frightened me as I have seen some nursing homes that are terrible places . . . little more than warehouses for aged and infirm.
As I drove up to Valle Vista Long Term Nursing Care, 1025 W. 2nd Avenue, Escondido, I was pleasantly surprised to see a very attractive building - at least from the exterior. Upon entering I found the facility to be nice and clean and lots of staff with smiles on their faces. We had lucked out. Valle Vista is a wonderful place! Super talented and friendly staff. The even better news is that after two weeks I picked Scott up on Tuesday of last week. They had worked wonders! When
Letters to the Editor Re: Pastor Joe Garcia
I take exception to Andy Pino's letter referring to Pastor Joe Garcia as a "neophyte, nonpolitically experienced male as a classic example of raw politics." Pastor Garcia is running against Olga Diaz for the Escondido City Council. He is a man of high morals, principles and integrity who wishes to serve his community. To insinuate he was forced to run against Olga Diaz by Mayor Sam Abed is poor judgement. Does not Mr. Pino know that Ms. Diaz was also once a neophyte, nonpolitically experienced woman (and) a classic example of raw politics as well? One must serve and/or work in order to become 'experienced!'

first admitted Scott’s hands had heavy tremors, he had difficulty walking, talking, feeding himself. Today, his hands are firm and steady, he walks well, albeit with a cane, and he talks well. He’s quite the story teller so talking is important.
He was diagnosed as having had brain damage but, if accurate, it appears to us that the brain damage was minimal. We’ll know more when he sees a neurologist.
We got our eldest son back from the jaws of death. That’s a mighty good feeling. Our deepest thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Valle Vista Skilled Nursing in Escondido! Third bouquet: My pal, Dr. Greg Hurt, that really impressive dental genius in San Marcos (at San Marcos Dental Center) is doing it again this year. He is buying back candy from Halloween Trick-or-Treaters and sending that candy to our troops overseas. He’s buying the candy starting November 1st, 2nd and today, 3rd.

often, will assist you and the family in ensuring all benefits are received that the veteran is entitled to. Families should also be aware that Mortuary services are not included within VA coverage. Insurance
All mortuaries offer pre-need insurance plans that will lock in your present day costs for future need and will guarantee coverage of services and merchandise. Any additional costs, if any, should be minimal . . or, there may even be monies reurned as the policy earns interest. Most mortuaries also offer a courtesy plan where you determine the funeral service(s) you want, which is kept on file and paid when the actual need arises. Who We Spoke With:

Families may write obituaries themselves. Funeral homes will offer assistance or, often, will write them for the family.
The family or funeral home may submit the basic informatin to The Paper and our staff will write the obituary. There is no charge for the writing of the obituary or memorial. Contact the Obituary Manager of The Paper for assistance. She is Rita Griffiths at 760.270.3255. Costs
Costs vary from one funeral home to another and depends in large part on what services you would like, what merchandise you would like, caskets, formal viewing room/times, hearse, pastor, music, flowers, etc. Cremations are less expensive than traditional funerals and/or burials.
Given our diverse populations you often have “traditional’ funerals that differ from what many of us would call “traditional.” As mentioned earlier in this story, Buddhists have a certain tradition to their funeral, Catholics have for theirs,
Muslims have for theirs. The extra days, times, viewing rooms, etc., may increase the cost over the basic funeral/burial costs. Some repersentative costs:
Direct cremations - $1000
A full traditional funeral service with casket, viewing, late service one day and a service the following day, $5300. Allen Brothers Cremation from $1500.
Traditional funeral can be anywhere from several thousand dollars to $30,000, depending on the wishes of the family on behalf of the decedent Allhiser Comer
Offers cremation or a customized funeral for $2795 McLeod Funeral Home
Offers a basic cremation service for $1950. Memorial services with view-
ing, chapel service and burial can run from $1995 and up. The $1995 is for a simple burial service. Chapel service, viewing rooms, etc. are extra fees. They also are bilingual. Accu-Care Cremation
Offers cremation for as low as $415 plus transportation.
As in all major expenditures the best advice we can offer is to meet personally with one or more of the funeral services listed here and receive counseling and information.
This is their profession and they’ve been trained to respond to what you and your family want for your loved one. It is also a good idea to meet with funeral services before the need arises. That way you can make an informed decision without the heavy emotions you are likely to be under after a loved one has passed.

The Healthy 75th Assembly District
The 75th Assembly District which I represent includes the wonderful communities of Fallbrook, Temecula, San Marcos, Escondido, Bonsall, Rainbow, Hidden Meadows, Valley Center, Palomar Mountain, Pauma, eight Tribal sovereign nations and parts of unincorporated Vista and Murrieta. Representing almost 500,000 people is a big responsibility, with important issues that affect our lives on a daily basis. These include traffic congestion, water reliability, jobs, education, healthcare access and affordability, and protecting our personal freedoms. Infrastructure for freeways/roads and drinking/irrigation water has not kept pace with growth in Southern California. The State has the budget to address these issues without affecting the commitment to our schools, but has not done so. That is why I continue to support and introduce legislation making funding for transportation, roadway improvements and water expansion a priority. Our precious agriculture, our families and businesses rely on affordable, reliable supplies of

water and an efficient, updated transportation network. As a member of Assembly Health committee, I ran legislation expanding access for innovative lifesaving treatments for patients, including those in underserved communities and Medi-Cal which were signed by the Governor and enacted into law. More must be done as lack of access to providers, especially for Medi-Cal patients, has made it difficult for many to find a doctor or dentist who will treat them.
As a mother, I want excellent educational opportunities and more alternative programs for all students, including on-line courses and charter schools. Protecting our 2nd Amendment rights, supporting job growth and creating transparency in government are issues I continue to champion.
The 75th is "The Healthy District" blessed with thriving communities, abundant sunshine, avocados, citrus, nuts, olives and of course, wine grapes. Preserving this quality of life is essential.

Escondido Tamale Festival!
We attended last year and was amazed at the great turnout and at how well organized the event was. Colorful vendor stands and a wide variety of tamales . . . all absolutely delicious.
You can piddle around all you want Saturday morning just as long as you are at Grape Day Park by 11am. I’ll be watching to make sure you are there. On time. That’s when the event kicks off. It runs till 5pm and you’ll have an absolute blast. Thanks to Alex MacLachlan, that auld Scot, who, with his kilt and bagpipe in full form, managed to stage this event last year with such brilliant success and, knowing him, this year will be even bigger and brighter.

Fifith Bouquet: My dear friend, Arie de Jong, stepped up to the plate to help the North County San Diego Veterans Stand Down event.
Arie, who bought the Green Oaks Ranch, then invested heavily in modernizing it and updating the facilities and provided a home for folks down on their luck and having problems with addictions and/or other personal family problems, has offered the Green Oak Ranch as the venue for a Veteran’s Stand Down coming in January, 2017. The Stand Down is an event where veterans who are down on their luck, many of whom are homeless, are brought together for feeding, medical and dental checkups, haircuts, counseling in a variet of areas, and a whole lot more.
The big event takes place in January of 2017 and we will be big supporters. It’s the least you and me can do for our veterans.
Keep your eye on this column and we’ll bring you up to speed as we get closer. And, Arie de Jong . . . you area a candidate for Sainthood! Thanks for making the Green Oaks Ranch available to our veterans! This Friday, November 4th, is the day of my birth.
So many years ago I arrived on this planet and was soon put in swaddling clothes. I remember it as though it were yesterday.

I thought at first they may have come from Alabama as one of them had a banjo on his knee.
I intend on celebrating by clapping hands and dancing with joy . . . or by weeping and sobbing . . . depending upon how the election turns out next week. I may just weep and sob regardless of who wins. Incidentally, you can delete frankincense and mryhh from the gift list. I know gold is a whole lot heavier but . . .well, you know.

The Music Boosters help purchase and keep hundreds of instruments tuned up and in good shape for 5th-12th graders in the VC bands. The boosters also fund the ability for both band and chorus to participate in competition events at the middle and high school levels. Tighter budgets mean there is an ever important role of the boosters. Their annual goal is more than $60,000 to cover expenses of these programs including uniforms and performance clothing, and additional programs such as color guard, marching band field show, and drum line.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
North County’s Beloved ‘Mr. Piano Man’
This week’s column is a slight departure from the usual history fare, yet it really isn’t. I’m going to tell you about an amazing man who lived a fascinating and historic 96 years.
Dick Adams of Fallbrook was known throughout North County, especially in Escondido, for his piano-playing popularity. Most of those who knew him were aware he was an excellent musician, but little else. There was much, much more to Dick’s life than just that of a piano player. Much, much more.
Call 760.747.7119 for details
“One day my brother and I were in the hotel elevator going down to the lobby and on one of the floors Mr. Mack got into the car,” Dick recalled. “After the doors closed, he looked at me and my brother then said: ‘You two boys look like you should be playing baseball for my team.’” The two brothers looked at each other. Dick said he couldn’t resist.”
“Yes sir. We’re your left and right fielders,” Dick told the old man.
The baseball legend, who was 90 years old at the time, gave a slight smile and walked out of the elevator into the lobby without saying a word. “I don’t think he ever spoke to us again. In fact, I don’t think he ever remembered who we were.”
(Connie Mack, who began playing in 1886, would go on to manage the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Athletics, later became a club owner and is in the Baseball Hall of Fame. He died in 1956 at the age of 93). After one season in the majors, Dick spent the next three decades as a high school physical education instructor. Music was more or less a hobby.

Dick said by the time he and his brother joined the team, Mack was more or less a figure head.
“Oh, Mr. Mack would sit in the dugout each game, but he didn’t do any managing,” Dick recalled. “Before the game, Mr. Mack would walk onto the field and point in several directions in the outfield as if to be giving instructions. He really wasn’t -- that was just for the fans.”

Mack’s Philadelphia Athletics of the American League baseball club.
Dick was born in 1921. He didn’t talk much about his early years, but on one of our playing ‘gigs’ (I played and sang with Dick in an Oceanside-based combo), he told me about his war years back in the early 1940s.
“I took my Army Air Corps training at the base in Santa Ana,” Dick told me. “After basic training, I was assigned to my permanent duty station.” He was grinning. “I spent the entire war in Hollywood at the NBC studios.” The Army realized he not only was a musician, (trumpet and piano), but he was a musical arranger as well. “I played the trumpet and arranged all the music for a weekly Army Air Corps musical radio program,” he told me. “We had a lot of big name celebrities as guests on the show – it was quite a production each week.”
After the War, Dick set about trying to play professional baseball. In 1953, after knocking around playing at the minor league level, Dick and his brother landed outfield positions on Connie
In his retirement years, it was his piano work that most of us who knew him loved about Dick. He was one of those rare musicians who could play anything – I mean “anything.” If he could hear a few of the opening notes, he could pick it up and play the tune like he had written it. It’s called “playing by ear.”
At a Christmas gig one year when Dick and I were playing with the Eddie Kruck combo, we were going to close the evening with the great World War II ballad, “We’ll Meet Again,” the one Vera Lynn made famous. Ironically, Dick hadn’t heard of it, or didn’t remember. So, I hummed a few bars. Dick picked it up and played right along as I sung. He played like he’d played the song for years.
Dick died peacefully in his sleep two weeks ago at the age of 96. Those of us who knew him wouldn’t argue that he didn’t look a day over 65. He gave piano lessons each week and played at least two or three gigs on a regular basis. Over the past few months, however, Dick started having trouble getting around. He told Eddie a few weeks ago, “I’m ready to close the last chapter.” Dick Adams is one of my “most unforgettable” characters I’ve known.

The downside of this open democracy is that too often people who run for office are not qualified to handle the important subject matter they will face – public financing, land use planning, policy development. The greatest responsibility in our democracy then falls to the voters.

when they vote, but this is also not the case. Voting for a “nice person” or someone endorsed by a particular political party is often the primary criteria. Voting for a single issue candidate, at the expense of all other important issues is like hiring someone who can only do one task.
How thankful Thanksgiving?
Most of what I hear is of complaints and criticism. The complaints are centered on what is happening in Washington, the drama of our Presidential Candidates, and the uncertainty of the future. All of this is directed toward persons and circumstances that don’t meet our standards and expectations.
How do we fit all of this into Thanksgiving? For many, the event will include a feast, family gatherings, fall decorations of pumpkins, and the cornucopia of garden produce. Perhaps we will even think about America’s first Thanksgiving. Is it possible to catch a true and

meaningful experience of thanksgiving? This is the perfect time of the year to do it. A good way to start is by looking at what we in America have in comparison with most of the world. Our grocery stores are stuffed with food from all over the world. Libraries are available with more information and opportunities than we could ever digest. Our automobiles run with limited maintenance for at least 100,00 miles. Gas prices are staggeringly low. We live long and healthy lives because of modern medicine. And, of course, there is so much more.
Who do we thank for all of this? Some would say, “We did it. Let’s thank ourselves.” Others would say, “It is chance and circumstances, being at the right place at the right time.” And then there are those who pause with a spirit of humility and acknowledge it is more than luck, human ingenuity, and self-driven determination. What we have and where we are is due to the blessings, gifts, and favor of God, the Creator and Sustainer of all. We have no claim to arrogance, only expressions of gratitude. To catch this spirit and maintain it, I share a thought from Psalm 104, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits.”

Library Group Offers Replica of Historic “Stars” Road Sign - An historic Valley Center road sign from the 1940's has been reproduced by Friends of the Valley Center Library and is now available for purchase in the Library Bookstore. It is expected to become a much sought-after souvenir of an historic event. Metal signs bearing the poetic name "Highway to the Stars via Valley Center" were installed by the County Road Department and placed along the street now called Valley Center Road. They marked the route taken by engineers to transport the massive Hale Telescope to Palomar Mountain. It took two days, November 18 and 19, 1947, to pass through town as crowds lined the street to witness the event. The name appeared on maps and advertisements for years, and local businesses adopted that street name as their official address. The practice continued until the early 1960's. Over time, some of the official County signs were removed for road widening; others

were taken as souvenirs. Today, only one original sign exists as the Valley Center History Museum. The Friends obtained a copy of the original sign from the Valley Center Historical Society and created an 11 x 17 poster-quality print which can easily be framed. It is selling for $5.00 at the Friends Bookstore inside the Library at 29200 Cole Grade Road. All proceeds benefit Library activities and programs.

ORDINANCE NO. 2016-1433 – AN INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS, CALIFORNIA, IMPOSING A TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES, THE OUTDOOR CULTIVATION AND PROCESSING OF MARIJUANA, THE INDOOR CULTIVATION AND PROCESSING OF MARIJUANA IN EXCESS OF WHAT WOULD BE PERMITTED UNDER THE “CONTROL, REGULATE AND TAX ADULT USE OF MARIJUANA ACT,” IF APPROVED, AND THE USE AND POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA AND MARIJUANA PRODUCTS IN PUBLIC PLACES. WHEREAS, in 1970, Congress passed the Federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which prohibits the possession, cultivation, manufacture and distribution of marijuana, and classifies it as a Schedule 1 drug meaning it has no accepted medical value in treatment; and
WHEREAS, California law currently generally makes it a crime to possess, cultivate and process marijuana under Health and Safety (H&S) Code sections 11357 and 11358, respectively; and WHEREAS, in 1996, California voters approved Proposition 215 (H&S Code sections 11362.5, et seq.), entitled the Compassionate Use Act (CUA) to ensure that seriously ill individuals have the right to obtain and use marijuana for medical purposes when recommended by a physician. The CUA also exempts patients and their primary caregivers from criminal prosecution or sanctions under State law; and
WHEREAS, in 2003, the California Legislature passed Senate Bill 420 (H&S Code sections 11362.7, et seq.) to create the Medical Marijuana Program (MMPA), which established a voluntary State-authorized program for the issuance of medical marijuana identification cards to qualified patients and their primary caregivers, set limits on the amount of medical marijuana any individual could possess, and provided an exemption from State criminal liability for persons “who associate within the State of California in order collectively or cooperatively to cultivate marijuana for medical purposes”; and
WHEREAS, in 2006, the City Council enacted Chapter 5.54 under the San Marcos Municipal Code (SMMC) to prohibit the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries as businesses, whether fixed or mobile, in all zones within the City’s jurisdictional limits. WHEREAS, in 2015, Governor Brown approved the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA), which created a comprehensive State licensing system for the cultivation, manufacture, transportation, storage, distribution, and sale of medical marijuana through Assembly Bills 243 and 266 and Senate Bill 643; and
WHEREAS, in 2016, in response to the passage of the MMRSA, the City Council amended SMMC Chapter 5.54 and Title 20 of the SMMC (Zoning Ordinance) to expressly and separately prohibit the commercial cultivation of marijuana, the delivery of marijuana, and the processing of marijuana within the City as business activities and land uses; and WHEREAS, on November 8, 2016, California voters will vote on Proposition 64, also known as the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), which would allow persons 21 years of age and older to (i) smoke, ingest or otherwise use nonmedical marijuana and marijuana products; (ii) purchase, possess, transport, obtain or give away without compensation to persons age 21 and older, up to 28.5 grams of marijuana or 8 grams of concentrated marijuana; and (iii) plant, cultivate or process up to six (6) living marijuana plants for personal use; and
WHEREAS, the AUMA, if approved, would allow local governments to continue prohibiting or regulating commercial operations, activities and uses relating to marijuana, including, but not limited to, prohibiting marijuana dispensaries, regulating personal cultivation and processing of marijuana indoors, prohibiting or regulating personal cultivation and processing of marijuana outdoors, and prohibiting the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, including, but not limited to, within buildings owned, leased or occupied by a government agency; and WHEREAS, the City does not currently expressly prohibit or regulate commercial or personal operations, activities and uses of nonmedical marijua-
na because nonmedical marijuana is currently illegal under both Federal and State law; and
WHEREAS, if the AUMA is approved, the City would have no express provisions in place prohibiting or regulating nonmedical marijuana dispensaries, the cultivation and processing of marijuana outdoors, the cultivation and processing of marijuana indoors in excess of what would be permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, including on City property and the premises of a retailer; and
WHEREAS, in the interest of the immediate protection of the public health, safety and welfare, California Government Code sections 36937 and 65858 authorize local governments to adopt an interim ordinance as an urgency measure, without following the procedures otherwise required prior to adopting an ordinance, to prohibit any operations, activities and uses that the local government is considering, studying or intends to study within a reasonable time; and
WHEREAS, the City desires to impose a temporary moratorium on the operation of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what would be permitted under the AUMA, as well as the use and possession of marijuana in public places, including on City property and the premises of a retailer, to immediately protect the health, safety and welfare of the community if the AUMA is approved, and to prevent adverse impacts that such operations, activities and uses may have on the community and nearby properties and residents; and
NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City of San Marcos specifically, does ordain as follows: Section 1.Recitals. recitals are true and correct.
Section 2.Findings and Purpose. The adoption of this interim urgency Ordinance is necessary for the immediate protection of the public health, safety and welfare. Pursuant to Government Code sections 36937 and 65858, the City Council finds and declares that:
(a) T h e United States Supreme Court has continuously found that marijuana, including medical marijuana, violates Federal law under the CSA. In 2001, the Court held in United States v. Oakland Cannabis Buyers Cooperative, et al. that there was no “medical necessity” defense under the CSA, and therefore a medical marijuana dispensary could be enjoined from distribution and manufacturing. In 2005, the Court held in Gonzalez v. Raich that the Commerce Clause authorizes Congress to prohibit the cultivation or use of marijuana for medical purposes permitted by California law. The significance of the Raich decision is that Federal law enforcement agents may continue to enforce Federal drug laws against Californians who cultivate, use or dispense marijuana; and (b) Cities that have permitted medical or nonmedical marijuana dispensaries to operate in their jurisdictions, in California and nationally, have reported experiencing an overconcentration of such land uses; burglaries, robberies and thefts occurring at the dispensaries; an increase in other criminal activity in the vicinity of these dispensaries; teenagers, drug addicts and documented gang members loitering at the dispensaries; dispensary customers using marijuana and then driving under the influence of marijuana; dispensaries selling illegal drugs other than marijuana; dispensaries selling marijuana and marijuana products to minors; loss of trade for commercial businesses located near dispensaries; excessive energy use; and faulty and dangerous electrical and plumbing problems at the dispensaries; and
(c) Many of the violent crimes reported at marijuana dispensaries involve the use of weapons. In June 2016, a security guard of a marijuana dispensary in Aurora, Colorado, where nonmedical marijuana is legal and an influx of dispensaries has occurred as a result of the legalization of marijuana, was shot and killed during a robbery of the dispensary. That month, the owner of a medical marijuana dispensary in Walnut Park, California shot and wounded two armed men during a robbery attempt at his dispensary. A man was also shot and killed by a gang member at a Bakersfield medical marijuana dispensary in June of this year; and
(d) In the past, a number of medical marijuana dispensaries have attempted to operate in the City in violation of the SMMC and the Zoning
Ordinance. The City pursued successful code enforcement actions against those dispensaries. Although a prohibition of medical marijuana dispensaries is already addressed under the SMMC, if the AUMA becomes effective and in the absence of a moratorium, individuals might apply for City permits, licenses or other entitlements to operate nonmedical marijuana dispensaries, and the City would be required to process and issue the requested approvals, unless some clear violation of the SMMC or Zoning Ordinance exists on other grounds; and (e) Between 2005 and 2006, a marijuana dispensary operating in San Marcos that obtained a business license to operate as a “nutritional supplement store” was burglarized several times and the operators failed to report the break-ins to law enforcement; and
(f) California courts have upheld various local regulations governing or prohibiting marijuana cultivation and processing. In County of Tulare v. Nunes (2013), the Court of Appeal held that the CUA and the MMPA do not require Tulare County to define growing marijuana as an acceptable agricultural use of land. (215 Cal.App.4th 1188). Also in 2013, in Browne v. County of Tehama, the Court of Appeal found the MMPA did not preempt a local ordinance declaring that any cultivation of marijuana was a nuisance that could be abated. (213 Cal.App.4th 704). In Maral v. City of Live Oak, also decided in 2013, the Court of Appeal held that the CUA and the MMPA do not preempt a local agency’s police power to prohibit the cultivation of all marijuana within the jurisdiction. (221 Cal.App.4th 975); and
(g) Several jurisdictions throughout the State have reported adverse effects and nuisance impacts relating to marijuana cultivation and processing, including but not limited to, the strong and potentially noxious odors associated with mature marijuana plants; impacts to the environment, including spraying of chemicals and toxins (i.e. fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, rodenticides and insecticides) at grow sites and and the potential for storm water runoff and groundwater impacts, greenhouse gas emissions, excessive energy use, generator use producing localized noise, irresponsible and significant water use (the California Department of Fish & Wildlife reported that researchers estimate each plant of marijuana consumes six gallons of water each day, which is problematic since California is currently in a multi-year drought), and dangerous fire hazards; damage to buildings surrounding the cultivation area; problems associated with mold, fungus and pests; abandonment of trash and waste once plants are harvested; proximity of children to areas under cultivation; visibility of grows from the public right-ofway; and an increase in crime, including robberies, theft and trespassing; and (h) As an urgency measure to protect and preserve the public welfare, California Government Code sections 36937 and 65858 authorize local governments to adopt an interim urgency ordinance prohibiting any operations, activities and uses that the local government is considering, studying or intends to study within a reasonable time; and
(i) It is necessary for the City to impose a temporary moratorium prohibiting (i) the approval or issuance of any applicable license or entitlement for use, including, but not limited to, the issuance of a business license, building permit, conditional use permit, or other land use approval for the establishment or operation of any marijuana dispensary within any zone in the City’s jurisdictional boundaries; (ii) the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, and the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what would be permitted under the AUMA; and (iii) the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, including, but not limited to, on City property and the premises of a retailer to provide time for the City to further study the potential impacts that these operations, activities and uses may have on the public health, safety and welfare if the AUMA is approved; research and craft possible amendments to the provisions of the SMMC and the Zoning Ordinance relating to marijuana and craft appropriate regulations governing these operations, activities and uses for the City Council to consider if the AUMA is approved; and ensure that regulations relating to marijuana operations, activities and uses can be implemented in such a way as to minimize any harmful effects they might have on the City’s residents, as well as nearby businesses and property owners; and (j) This is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines because there is no potential for it to result in a physical change in the environment, either directly or indirectly. In
the event this Ordinance is found to be subject to CEQA, it is exempt from CEQA pursuant to the exemption contained in CEQA Guidelines section 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility of a significant effect on the environment. Section 3.Temporary Moratorium Established. For the reasons described above, the City Council has determined it is necessary to enact an interim urgency ordinance imposing a temporary moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what would be permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, including on City property and the premises of a retailer, pursuant to Government Code sections 36937 and 65858. The City has a compelling interest in protecting the public health, safety and welfare of its residents and businesses, in preserving the peace and integrity of its neighborhoods, and in providing clear local regulation consistent with the requirements of Federal and State law. The adoption of this Ordinance is necessary on an urgency basis because of the current and immediate threat these operations, activities and uses pose to the public health, safety and welfare if the AUMA is approved.
Section 4.Consistency with the SMMC. Any provision of the SMMC that is inconsistent with any provision of this urgency Ordinance, to the extent of such inconsistencies and no further, is hereby repealed or modified only to the extent necessary to effect the provisions of this urgency Ordinance. The City Council expressly finds that SMMC Chapter 5.54 and Title 20 of the SMMC are not inconsistent with this urgency Ordinance.
Section 5.Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this urgency Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this urgency Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted the urgency Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.
Section 6.Effective Date. This Ordinance shall take effect immediately upon adoption as an urgency measure. The temporary moratorium shall be of no further force and effect if the AUMA does not pass at the November 8. 2016 California General Election (General Election). If the AUMA does pass at the General Election, the temporary moratorium shall be of no further force and effect forty-five (45) days from the date of the adoption of this urgency Ordinance, unless, prior to its expiration, following a noticed public hearing in accordance with Government Code section 65090, the City Council extends the Ordinance pursuant to Government Code section 65858. Section7. Publication. Within fifteen (15) days following the adoption of this urgency Ordinance, the City Clerk shall publish this urgency Ordinance, or the title thereof, as a summary as required by State law.

The Petition for Probate requests that Elizabeth M. Ramirez be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

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.

George “Wes” Weston Lewis, 87 07/28/1929 ~ 10/17/2016
ESCONDIDO -- George "Wes" Weston Lewis, 87, passed away at Palomar Hospital on Monday, October 17th, 2016.
Wes was born on July 28, 1929 in Sacramento, California to Leland and Catherine (Cover) Lewis. As a teenager, he lived in Rocky Ford, Colorado with his aunt and uncle, Martha and Robert Babcock. Wes graduated from Rocky Ford High School in June of 1946 and joined the United States Air Force in 1948. Wes was an aircraft electrician and was stationed in Germany where he worked on the B29 and other aircraft.
Unsolved Hit & Run on Memorial Sunday, May 30, 1993 on the 3000 block of Buena Creek Road in Vista, CA. Ryan Leitzke 11/25/1983 ~05/30/1993
As Ryan's Thanksgiving birth date approaches, 11/25/2016, some still think about the lack of JUSTICE FOR RYAN. On Memorial weekend, Sunday afternoon, about 4 p.m., Ryan was standing behind the white line waiting to cross the road. A fast-driven truck came around the corner driving over the white line. T h e driver h i t Ryan and he w a s carried on the hood of the truck for about 40 feet before landing on the road. Ryan died at the scene as paramedics arrived and the coroner said the cause of death was a broken neck.
About a year and half after Ryan was killed, Crime Stoppers did a re-enactment of Ryan’s death. About a week later, Mom got a call from a neighbor saying a CHP officer had a lead which came from the San Diego Crime Stoppers and he was following it up. Family heard nothing from the CHP. About the 15th anniversary of Ryan’s death, Mom got a call from a North County Times reporter wanting to do a story on Ryan’s unsolved murder. The reporter called Mom to advise that she
Wes met his wife Mary Bricka, while working at the Regal gas station in Santa Barbara, California. Mary had three young children, Janet, Don, and Bruce Bell when they met and they soon added three more to the family with Bob, Martha and Charlie. Together, they owned and operated the Lewis Cycle Center in Goleta, California. Wes and Mary were married for 39 years. Wes and Mary lived for 19 years in Winlock, Washington where they were very much involved in the local Farmers Markets. Wes was preceded in death by Mary and their son, Bruce; and survived by their remaining children, Janet, Don, Bob, Martha and Charlie. Wes will also be lovingly remembered by his 17 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.. A celebration of life service was held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, October 22nd at Alhiser-Comer Mortuary in Escondido, followed by a small family gathering at a local residence. A graveside ceremony will be conducted in Winlock, Washington on Saturday October 29th. Arrangements are by Alhiser-Comer Mortuary in Escondido.
went to the CHP office and was told that Ryan’s file had been destroyed after 10 years as allowed by law.
A roadside memorial was created by the public and as instructed by a police officer, the family has decorated and maintained it as a conscience prodder on anniversaries and holidays at the place where Ryan was killed. In the few years that Ryan was on this earth, his heart was huge as he gave his birthday money to feed the homeless, “because they need it more than me.”
However, Ryan was a normal boy. He loved trains. He wanted to be a fireman, and loved dressing up for Halloween. He was in Little League: Baseball, Soccer, and Basketball from ages 5 to 9 years old.
Oh, how Ryan loved his dog, Sandi. When she died, the day we took the picture, he cried out "why didn't God take me instead.” Six weeks later Ryan joined Sandi in heaven.
“We remain secure because of HOPE.” Psalms 16.9. “My flesh will rest in HOPE.” Psalm 39.7. “Lord, my HOPE is in You.” Psalms 71.5. “For You are my HOPE!”
Praying for JUSTICE for Ryan. Any information or leads may be called or text to Mom (Linda) at 760-522-7445. Help the family find some peace and closure. You will be blessed.
