Volume 50 - No. 46

By Friedrich Gomez

The unthinkable happened on February 3, 1959, when an airplane crashed near Clear Lake, Iowa, instantly killing three legends of rock music, and sending countless millions of Americans to their radios and television sets to see and hear if the widespread rumors were true.

Sadly, they were.

globe with foreign newspapers reporting the tragedy in various languages, and London newspapers proclaiming: “TOP ‘ROCK’ STARS DIE IN CRASH!” With rock ‘n’ roll music being a ‘universal language’ cutting across all cultural barriers, many young teenagers around the world openly wept as news confirmed the death of beloved rock ‘n’ roll idols, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper (real name, Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr.).

Even in Asian countries, where rock ‘n’ roll music was considered culturally decadent with a dangerous propensity to “corrupt its youth” (a notion shared by Occidental countries), such labeling as a “forbidden fruit” only made America’s imported music more attractive in its revolutionary appeal to younger generations abroad who found it virtually impossible to keep their feet from dancing to the irresistible rhythms and vocals. From around the planet, and down through the years, the tragic event

would be immortalized in songs and Hollywood Motion pictures – and become universally known as: “The Day the Music Died.”

TWO SMALL FOREIGN BOYS REMEMBER THE TRAUMA TODAY. Back in 1959, thousands of miles away, across the Atlantic ocean, two young lads in England who were attending the Institute High School for Boys were both completely devastated at the news: “I remember being in my old school playground, getting there in the morning before morning class.

Someone had a copy of the Daily Mirror Newspaper and there was the headline: BUDDY HOLLY DIES IN PLANE CRASH! “Oh my God! The rug was pulled out from underneath us! It was quite shocking for both of us! It’s one of those events where people can always remember where they were when the news broke.”

The news that day would forever change the lives of those two English lads, residents of a maritime city where the Mersey River meets the Irish Sea. The young British teenage students both grew up and in time become better known as Paul McCartney and George Harrison, two immortal members of The Beatles.

ALL THREE MUSICIANS WERE UNIQUE PIONEERS. It is incumbent for an article such as this, to establish a preliminary foundation of facts so that the reader is afforded proper perspective, greater clarity, insight, and appreciation within this storyline. Although all three individuals who perished in that infamous airplane crash were all diametrically different from one another, they all shared certain things in common. First off, they all died far, far too young. Buddy Holly was only 22 years-old, Ritchie Valens was a

mere 17-year-old minor, and the ‘oldster’ of the trio, the Big Bopper, was still a mere 28 when his promising career abruptly ended. Another shared trait among the trio is the startling fact that -- despite their extremely short-lived life spans -- they somehow managed to achieve so much, in so short a period of time. Aside from gaining great success, they also were early pioneers paving new ground. BUDDY HOLLY. Buddy Holly’s ‘hiccup-style’ vocalization, guitar playing style, and songwriting talents, all had a tremendous influence on later performers. Holly was barely out of high school when he opened for Elvis Presley in 1955 (a fact not well-known).

He is often regarded as the artist who defined the traditional rock ‘n’ roll line-up on stage: of two guitars, bass, and drums. His guitarplaying style was revolutionary, influencing many great artists today. His classic ground-breaking song “Not Fade Away,” inspired Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones to model his own guitar playing technique -- all based on Holly’s sound track. Both John Lennon and George Harrison of The Beatles learned to play guitar in part by listening and studying Buddy Holly records. The Beatles were among his early fans and great admirers of Holly’s songs, such as “That’ll Be the Day,” and “Peggy Sue” as well as

“Maybe Baby.” Both John Lennon and Paul McCarthy would end up owning the publishing rights to Buddy Holly’s entire catalog of songs. Keep in mind – he accomplished all of this (and much more) before he died at only age 22.

THE BIG BOPPER. The Big Bopper (Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr.) was a fellow Texan of Buddy Holly, but their lives could not have been any more different. The Bopper was a confident and colorful extrovert on and off the stage; a smoothtalking professional humorist and successful radio disc jockey on KTRM (now KZZB) in Beaumont, Texas. His deep melodious and unique southern accent greatly misled radio listeners into thinking he was Black; his radio fans just assumed that the radio station had hired a Black DJ. When the Big Bopper struck gold with his hit record “Chantilly Lace” playing over the nation’s airwaves, his newly-expanded ardent listening fans, once again, swore that he was a Black singer, due to his unique style and enunciation of words (whether spoken or sung).

He had learned much during those radio days. He successfully used his professional radio voice and injected his radio personality into his singing performances. He added props to his “live” stage performances, such as using a ringing telephone on stage and then pretended to be flirting with his girl-

He is also credited with creating the first ‘music video’ with his recorded performance of “Chantilly Lace” in 1958, decades before the advent of MTV and their music videos by singers. The Bopper’s comedic performances on stage and rockabilly music found acceptance around the planet. RITCHIE VALENS. Incredibly, Ritchie Valens only had two months of recording music in his short-lived music career and, yet, he had six hit records including “Donna” (a tribute song to his real-life girlfriend, Donna Ludwig) as well as “La Bamba.” He sang both songs on two different appearances on the popular national television show called “American Bandstand,” hosted by Dick Clark. Valens became one of the first musicians to infuse a Mexican-style influence to rock ‘n’ roll music with his hit song “La Bamba” only months before he died in the plane crash. (And yes, even though “La Bamba” is an old Mexican folk song originally from the state of Veracruz, it wasn’t until Ritchie Valens’ version that the song was brought into the world’s spotlight and made it “of general consumption” for world musical taste.

Local Actor Turns Down "James Bond" Role - Actor Sean Connery, who died recently, was best known as the movie character James Bond. However, Connery was not the first choice for that role. Valley Center resident Steve Reeves, already well known as a world-class bodybuilder and famous for his portrayal of "Hercules," was the actor of choice by the producers of the first Bond film and by author Ian Fleming. Connery, at the time, was known as a bodybuilder with limited acting experience.

In 1962, when "Dr No," the first in a series of Bond movies was being produced, Reeves was offered $100,000 to play the lead. Already the number one box office draw in 25 countries, Reeves turned down the offer. He was earning $250,000 to play "Hercules." The studio

THE 1959 “WINTER DANCE PARTY” – A BEHIND-THESCENES ACCOUNT OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED BACK THEN. Much of what you are about to read is vastly unknown and, in some aspects, may be surprising – even shocking -- in its revelation. It was early Tuesday evening, February 3, 1959, and Buddy Holly, with his iconic blackrimmed eyeglasses, surveyed his surroundings as he walked about the concert stage where he was about to perform at the Surf Ballroom, in Clear Lake, Iowa. He wasn’t in the best of moods. In fact, he was distraught and angry at the current state of affairs which brought him here. As he periodi-

By the time the first in the series of Bond movies was written, Reeves had appeared as an Olympic team member in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" (1953), "Jail Bait" (1954) and "Athena" (1954). Earlier, he was considered for the lead role in "Samson and Delilah" (1949) but Paramount Studios eventually decided it wanted a name actor to fill the role (Victor Mature was chosen). Reeves' studio pass is among the actor's memorabilia in the collection at the Valley Center History Museum which also maintains a permanent exhibition documenting his career as a bodybuilder, actor, and as a local rancher.

Reeves discovered Valley Center in 1957 and spent the last decades of his life raising Morgan horses at his 14BONDING: actor-bodybuilder Steve Reeves of acre ranch and living in a Valley Center (at left) and bodybuilder turned actor Spanish hacienda that he had Sean Connery both competed for the Mr. Universe built.

Connery placed third in the bodybuilders from across southern cally stopped to look over the stage with the rest of his band members, his 6-foot frame occasionally stooped a bit, as if tired – both physically and emotionally. He had a lot of worries weighing on his mind. Much of which he had related to his fellow musicians. And to some who were not even on his current tour, such as friend and popular Canadian singer-songwriter, Paul Anka. Just months ago, in November of 1959, he terminated his association with his band, the Crickets. He also needed money, because he found out that the Crickets’ manager, Norm Petty, had allegedly stolen (embezzled) money from him. The bespectacled native of Lubbock, Texas, looked down at his shoes in deep concentration, and shifted his 146-pound frame as he customarily did when in deep thought. He often thought back and worried about his now-pregnant wife, Maria Elena Holly, whom he recently married and was now in New York City, where he planned to rejoin her.

His newly-wed wife was deeply in love with him and wanted to join him during his Winter Dance Party tour, but her pregnancy was paramount and it was best decided that she stay put. Buddy Holly was now ultra-motivated to generate as much money as possible to recoup his depleted funds and to provide for his new family-to-be. All of the above is what brought the 22-year-old Texan to where he now

stood, at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa where the 11th concert on the tour schedule was slated that night. He silently reflected on all these things weighing down upon him. But he had little choice. According to fellow rock singer, Paul Anka, Buddy Holly had to go back on tour to generate badlyneeded income, so out of necessity he signed up for the start of the planned Winter Dance Party of 1959. As Paul Anka recalled from previous talks with Holly: “He knew they were planning a British tour and he wanted to be in on that.”

Since Holly had separated from the Crickets months prior, he now needed a new band, so he assembled one for the tour consisting of Waylon Jennings (bass), Tommy Allsup (guitar) and Carl Bunch (drums), and with the opening vocals of Frankie Sardo. It was Waylon Jennings who would eventually become a country-western star in his own right.

Fellow rock ‘n’ roll rising stars, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper (J. P. Richardson, Jr.), along with Dion and the Belmonts, also came on board to join forces on the Winter Dance Party tour.

for causing trauma, physical discomfort, sickness, and other horrific situations for the touring musicians by flagrantly being irresponsible in organizing the dates and places haphazardly. And also in providing below standard buses without proper heating for the sub-zero weather around the Midwestern states, all of which caused danger, sickness, and hospitalizations. It was the best of decisions that Holly’s pregnant wife, Maria Elena, stayed on safe ground back in New York. She (and child-to-be) would never have survived such ferocious conditions; viz. when they faceddown blizzards in buses that were totally without heating.

The tour schedule was a most grueling one with the harshest conditions along with poor planning and faulty-equipped buses in freezing temperatures. The Winter Dance Party tour had scheduled 24 consecutive concerts in 24 consecutive days with distances between these venues erratically meandering back-and-forth to the same towns, instead of systemically progressing from one city to the next around the Midwest. The musicians quickly became tired and frustrated each time their tour buses would go back to a previous concert area where they had just played days before. Some tour stops revisiting the same areas were over 400 miles away. Such back-and-forth visitations to

The Paper $540,000 in Two Grants From the Office of Traffic Safety

The safety of everyone traveling is the focus of two grants awarded to the Escondido Police Department. A $515,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will assist in the Escondido Police Department’s efforts to reduce deaths and injuries on Escondido roads, while a $25,000 educational grant from OTS will focuses on the safety of bicyclists and pedestrians.

“Sadly, each year too many members of our community are injured or killed in completely avoidable traffic collisions.” Chief Ed Varso said. “Driving under the influence, whether it be on drugs or alcohol, continues to be a significant problem in our community. Furthermore, far too many engage in unsafe practices from speeding, to running red lights, to jay walking. Our goal is to improve safety on our roadways and these grants help us do so by funding education and enforcement campaigns.” The one-year grants are for the 2021 federal fiscal year, which runs from Oct. 1, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021. The grants will fund a variety of traffic safety programs, including: • Patrols with emphasis on alcohol and drug-impaired driving prevention. • Patrols with emphasis on awareness and education of California’s

Juan Camilo Vargas, 62, of Escondido, was arrested on multiple felony counts of insurance fraud and reporting a false vehicle theft after allegedly misrepresenting when and where his vehicle was stolen from in order to receive an undeserved insurance payout. On September 8, 2019, Vargas reported to the Escondido Police Department and his insurance company that his 1997 Toyota RAV4 was stolen while parked in front of his Escondido home. Vargas stated he parked the vehicle the night before and discovered it was missing the next morning. His insurance company issued him a $4,165 check for his claim.

An investigation by the San Diego County Regional Auto Theft Task Force, which includes the California Department of Insurance, San Diego District Attorney’s Office and California Highway Patrol, revealed Vargas’ vehicle was driven across the border from the U.S. to Mexico on August 25, 2019.

the same cities wasted unnecessary time, causing extreme, unnecessary physical and emotional trauma and fatigue on all the band members. As music scholar, Bill Griggs notes: “They (the tour’s organizers) didn’t care. It was like they just threw darts at a map . . . the tour from Hell, that’s what they named it, and it’s not a bad name.”

Most of the Interstate Highway System had not yet been built, so the routes between tour stops required far more driving time on narrow two-lane rural highways than they would today.

THE TOUR BUS WAS OUTDATED, BROKE DOWN OFTEN & HAD TO BE REPLACED MULTIPLE TIMES. Making an already-bad situation worse was the added fact that the entire company of musicians traveled together in one bus. The bus was badly outdated and inadequately-equipped for the sub-zero weather. The bus constantly broke down in frigid snow that was often waist-deep for the freezing passengers onboard. Rock ‘n’ Roll historian, Bill Griggs, estimates that five separate buses were used in the first eleven days of the tour. As Griggs notes, “They were reconditioned school buses, no longer suitable for school kids.” The band members spoke among themselves of the nightmarish conditions. The diminutive 5’ 7” Ritchie Valens was fatigued, his body ached, and his mental state stretched to its limits. The Big Bopper was especially uncomfortable with his 5’ 10” frame exceeding 210 pounds, making it extremely difficult for him to comfortably sit in the erstwhile school bus seats. According to Waylon Jennings, “The Big Bopper had trouble sitting in those bus seats, and he couldn’t get any rest.” In short, none of them got adequate rest.

SICKNESS, FLU, FROSTBITE & HOSPITALIZATION. The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens soon began experiencing flu-like symptoms as the buses continued to break down frequently, and had to be replaced each time. Finally, Buddy Holly’s drummer, Carl Bunch, had to be hospitalized for severely frostbitten feet, after the bus broke down again, and in subzero temperatures, this time near Ironwood, Michigan.

As painfully cold and uncomfortable as the buses were, it was pure torture to step outside with temperatures sometimes dipping down to minus 36-degrees Fahrenheit. And snow level that was often 3-feet deep. Nonetheless, the exhausted musicians, weakened with cold and flu symptoms – and completely demoralized – had to, once more, unload and reload their equipment on yet another ill-equipped, outdated school bus . . . and then, they

Page 5 • • November 12, 2020

kept traveling onward.

Later, on Highway 51, near the town of Hurley, Wisconsin, in the early hours of the morning, a piston on the tour bus went out. In total darkness and with no heat whatsoever, all the musicians were left stranded for several hours, and desperately resorted to burning newspapers in the aisle of the bus just to stay warm. Finally a passing motorist picked them up.

Dion (Dion Francis DiMucci of the Belmonts) would never forget that tour bus, when he was only 19. He is now 81 years old and still reflects back on when they were stranded: “We were in the middle of a blizzard, trees were snapping in the wind, it was 30 degrees below zero, and the snow was coming down so hard we couldn’t see out the bus windows.”

Buddy and Dion would often huddle under a blanket on the bus and just to pass the time they would exchange stories of where they grew up. There was often a bottle of Scotch whisky and all of the band members would take a sip to warm their innards. The ordeal forever etched a scar in the psyche of popular singer, Dion. Years later, Dion would record the song, “Hug My Radiator,” which references the “broken down bus” and the unforgiving cold temperatures all the performers had to endure on that infamous God-forsaken tour.

With Buddy Holly’s drummer, Carl Bunch being hospitalized with frostbite, Carlo Mastrangelo of Dion and the Belmonts took over the drumming duties, sometimes alternating with Ritchie Valens who also played drums. They often only had each other, and they quickly became a close-knit family.

THEIR FINAL CONCERT STOP BEFORE THE FATEFUL PLANE CRASH. Buddy Holly and all the band members were reflecting back on all those moments which brought them to the Surf Ballroom, in Clear Water, Iowa, where they were all now assembled. It was concert stop No. 11 in a tour of 24 concerts. Not quite the midway mark. All the band members breathed-in deeply and then set about their arduous and hated routine: the artists themselves were responsible for loading and unloading equipment at each stop, as no road crew was there to assist them. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH -- LET’S TAKE A PLANE! Buddy Holly had a secret plan that he was about to unveil. It was the haphazard and Hellish tour that drove him, in final desperation, to this fanciful plan of his. Enough is enough. He was both physically and emotionally exhausted and he held back tears of missing his wife, long gone and far away in New York City. But, as he pushed his black-rimmed glasses

more snuggly against the bridge of his nose as he often did, he knew the show had to go on. And so it did.

Little did Buddy Holly know, that this would be his Final Concert, on that cold Monday evening, on February 2, 1959. For him, and his close friends Ritchie Valens, and Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr. (the Big Bopper), they would perform their final songs on the “Winter Dance Party” tour together, but never more. They had traveled a journey of 340 miles to where they all now assembled. It was minus 19 degrees when they left Green Bay, Wisconsin for Clear Lake, Iowa. They were tired beyond words, yet they regrouped and arrived at the Surf Ballroom just in time for their scheduled 8 p.m. concert. Despite the sub-zero temperature and snow-packed roads, over 1,200 teenagers showed up and paid $1.25 per ticket (equivalent of $11.18 per ticket today).

Alan Mitchell, former Chicago radio disc jockey was there that night, along with his girlfriend. Memories run deep: “I was 15 and was wearing my Thompson High School letter jacket. And I have to chuckle when I remember my ducktail (haircut) and lot of Brylcreem – ‘A little dab will do ya.’ We looked very cool then . . . and the girls did too with their poodle skirts, capris, and rabbit-fur collars.” Today, Alan Mitchell is 76-yearsold. But his words tumble forth quickly and with excitement when reminiscing, as if transformed back into his teen-aged years – at least for one brief, shining moment.

THEY ELECTRIFIED THE CROWD! As tired as they were, the musicians performed to their highest level, and were dressed to kill. Electricity ran through the crowd when the Big Bopper came out, sporting a Stetson hat and a three-quarter leopard coat. He wouldn’t disappoint. If anyone could kick-start the evening with laughter and merry-making, it was this one. With professional ease he segued from “The Big Bopper’s Wedding,” then “Bopper’s Boogie Woogie,” before bringing the house down with his long-awaited “Chantilly Lace.”

Ritchie Valens entered dressed in a blue satin shirt, black bolero and vaquero pants. Girls (and guys) openly wept in the audience as they swayed together and sang along to Ritchie Valens’ song “Donna,” a musical love bouquet to his erstwhile girlfriend, Donna Ludwig. Like a magical Cinderella night, the song “Donna” would soon turn gold in record sales, as if an alchemist had cast a beautiful spell that very, enchanted evening.

And Buddy Holly and band mates came out clothed in black jackets, gray slacks and ascots. Buddy Holly killed the audience with rousing renditions of “Oh, Boy!” and

“Peggy Sue,” and “That’ll Be the Day.” Sadly, his lingering lyrics to his song “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” seemed to mirror his own demoralized spirits; as if he had finally given up, and the tour took its final toll on him. Like a premonition of sorts, the song seemed a testament of his long, lost journey that was just about to end that very evening. Together, their performances raised the rafters and drove the frenzied crowds to even greater heights!

Then came the finale, when they all came together on stage and jammed, playing and singing “La Bamba” and “Great Balls of Fire.”

It was a moment in time that seemed to stand still. When senior citizens today were once young, bright-eyed, and full of piss and vinegar in their veins. When their generation ruled the world, and their young bodies were nimble and quick. And the thought of one day growing old was as distant as the stars in the Milky Way. SELECTING WHO FLIES ON THE AIRPLANE. After their performance, there still was their next day’s gig, another state away, miles northwest of where they just played.

They all knew of Buddy Holly’s plan. He finally decided that he had enough of the bus, the bitter cold, sleepless nights, and the tortuous, endless miles of roads. None of them had their laundry cleaned for days. And Holly could only fantasize and dream of just one night, in a comfortable bed, and a sound night’s sleep. He now planned to fly, from the Surf Ballroom in Iowa, to Fargo, North Dakota, just across the Red River from Moorhead, Minnesota, their next destination, the next day. A journey of 365 miles by bus.

Holly chartered a single-engine 1947 Beechcraft Bonanza, fourseater airplane, with 21-year-old pilot, Roger Peterson, to fly it. The flight would cost $108 and Holly first offered one of the seats to Dion for $36. Dion recalled that moment: “When Buddy said ‘That will be $36’ I thought about my parents’ apartment, which was $36 a month.” Dion declined the offer.

Two of Buddy Holly’s band members were asked next, Tommy Allsup and Waylon Jennings. But the Big Bopper had the flu and Jennings took pity and gave his seat to him. That left the third passenger ticket (not including the pilot). Ritchie Valens asked drummer, Tommy Allsup: “Are you gonna let me fly, guy?” llsup replied, “No.”

Valens, who only recently overcame his fear of flying, persisted and won the seat on a coin toss. Valens said it was the first time he

had ever won anything in his life. When Holly heard that his band mate, Waylon Jennings, voluntarily gave his seat to the Big Bopper, Holly joked to Jennings: Jennings jokingly replied: “Well, I hope your ol’ plane crashes!” (His memoir, “Waylon: An Autobiography,” 1996.)

Those words haunted Waylon Jennings for the rest of his life, and that he gave his seat to the Big Bopper. He lived with the guilt until he died at age 64 on February 13, 2002. The weather forecast for the Clear Lake area was 18 °F that night with moderate gusty winds and light scattered snow. 21-year-old pilot Roger Peterson was fatigued from a 17-hour workday, but he agreed to fly the trip anyway.

The triumphant concert had ended close to midnight.

Just after 12:30 a.m., Tuesday, February 3rd, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper climbed into the back seat of the red and white plane with all of the musicians’ dirty laundry, and Buddy sat next to the pilot. The barometer was falling, the ceiling and visibility were lowering, snowfall was increasing, the winds were blustering, the runway dimly lit. Shortly before 1 a.m., the plane slowly moved down the airport’s runway and took off, made a 180degree turn and headed north. The pilot never received the final weather warning of increasing weather danger. The plane would be airborne for only four minutes, before it crashed, just six miles from where it took off at the Mason City Municipal Airport, in Clear Lake, Iowa. The plane slammed into the ground at full throttle, instantly killing all five people onboard. The impact was at 170 miles per hour. The plane’s right wingtip sliced into the frozen ground and sent the aircraft cartwheeling across a cleared cornfield. Holly, Valens, and Richardson were ejected from the plane on impact and their bodies likely tumbled along with the wreckage across the icy field before the mangled plane came to rest against a barbed-wire fence. The bodies of Holly and Valens came to rest several feet away from the wreckage. The Big Bopper was thrown approximately 100 feet beyond the wreckage, landing on open ground, across the fence line and into the next cornfield. The pilot’s body remained entangled in the main mass of the plane wreckage, trapped in the cockpit. All four died instantly of massive head and chest injuries. NEWS OF THE PLANE CRASH CAUSED BUDDY HOLLY’S PREGNANT WIFE TO MISCARRIAGE. Buddy Holly’s mother, Ella Pauline Drake, and pregnant wife, Maria Elena Santiago Holly, learned about his death via a news report on TV. The trauma of learning about his death in such a way caused Holly’s wife

Page 6

deep psychological stress, and she later miscarried. The incident led law enforcement to enact a new policy forbidding the disclosure of victims’ names until families have first been notified.

50 YEARS LATER, HOLLY’S WIFE REVISITED THEIR NYC APARTMENT. In October 2008, Maria Elena Holly re-visited the Brevoort Apartment Building in New York City where she and Buddy lived, in Greenwich Village, before he died. They rented apartment No. 4H, a lavish two- bedroom apartment for $1,000 a month (equivalent to $9,000 a month today). It was the first time in 50 years that his wife found the strength to revisit. “I didn’t think I could take it,” she says. “I was weepy, but a friend took me in and announced to the doorman, ‘This is Mrs. Buddy Holly.’ And I know this sounds strange . . . but I felt Buddy’s presence there, and I visualized him smiling and thought I heard him say, ‘Finally you came for me.’

“Because they say that when you die, you come back to the place you left. I hadn’t realized that Buddy had been waiting there for 50 years. And I’ve brought him home with me now.” To this day, at the great age 87, Maria Elena Santiago Holly has never found the strength, nor the will, to visit her husband’s gravesite.

THE WORLD CHOOSES NEVER TO FORGET. To this day, the Surf Ballroom in Clear Water, Iowa, holds annual live concerts in memory of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper. The American public has, over the years, made annual pilgrimages to the crash site, lighting candles, visiting memorials, laying wreaths, and leaving letters of love, flowers, and personal cards. Even foreign tourists, both young and old, have joined together to unite at these U. S. events to keep alive the memory and love for their long-lost cherished idols.

This has been a tough year for all of us.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in business shutdowns, growing unemployment and extreme economic distress, along with related public health/mental health impacts for thousands. And now, the drawn-out election aftermath and the fast approaching holiday season will be adding to what’s already been one of the most stressful years in decades. Stress and anxiety levels are going through the roof. We all cope with stress differently, but there are generally agreed upon methods we all can use to keep stress in check. Among these are limiting the amount of time we spend listening to news sources, maintaining supporting relationships with friends and family, eating right, avoiding excessive food and alcohol, and getting plenty of exercise, if we’re able. If stress or anxiety is interfering with daily life, contacting care providers may help. In addition, there are many resources available to help people cope. I’m listing just a few below:

It’s Finally Over

No more TV commercials, no more opening up your mailbox to 20 different mailers from candidates, no more political signs, the 2020 election has come to a close, sort of. At the time of writing this, 64.4% of the votes have been counted in San Diego County and over 95% of the votes have been counted at the State. While some races are too close to call, it looks like there will be three new members on the Board of Supervisors.

I look forward to working with Nora Vargas, Terra Lawson-Remer and either Joel Anderson or Steve Vaus (race too close to call at this point). While there’s a lot of excitement around elections, my priorities will not change, no matter who my colleagues are. 2020 has been a year unlike any other. The County has dipped into its reserves for the first time in a very long time. One of my top priorities will be replenishing that reserve back to what it used to be. There are currently 200,000 San Diegans still out of work and many businesses barely hanging on. I’m going to continue to fight to open businesses and get people back to

work, safely. I believe we can do it, people want to do it, we just need to give them the chance.

Finally, my last focus will be the same as it’s been for the first two years in office, streets, roads, infrastructure and safety. We must provide those four necessities to all San Diegans, no matter if you live in the city or unincorporated area.

I am glad to see the 2020 election in the rearview, now it’s time to get back to work!

The Big Bopper

You hang in there, Sunshine ..... •••• Cletus is passing by Billy Bob's hay barn one day when, through a gap in the door, he sees Billy Bob doing a slow and sensual striptease in front of an old green John Deere. Buttocks clenched, he performs a slow pirouette, and gently slides off first the right strap of his overalls, followed by the left. He then hunches his shoulders forward and in a classic striptease move, lets his overalls fall down to his hips, revealing a torn and frayed plaid shirt. Then, grabbing both sides of his shirt, he rips it apart to reveal his stained T-shirt underneath. With a final flourish, he tears the T-shirt from his body, and hurls his baseball cap onto a pile of hay. Having seen enough, Cletus rushes in and says, "What the world're ya doing, Billy Bob?"

Richie Valens

"Good grief, Cletus, ya scared the bejeebers out of me," says an obviously embarrassed Billy Bob.

"But me 'n the wife been havin’ trouble lately in the bedroom d'partment, and the therapist suggested I do something sexy to a tractor." (Don't make me come ‘splain this to you!)

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

then broken by Alex Rodriguez and most consecutive games played (2,130), a record that stood for 56 years and was long considered unbreakable until surpassed by Cal Ripken Jr., in 1995.

1939: It Seems Like Only Yesterday

Recorded history for me began 81 years ago. Of course, I don’t remember the first of the most dynamic of the many years since, but 1939, by all accounts, recorded some of history’s most momentous and memorable people and events.

Sept. 1, 1939 is important because that day was the start of World War II, the 20th century’s most horrific five years. Germany invaded Poland, which triggered a global conflict that ultimately killed more than 60 million.

The year 1939 brought a great deal of protests concerning America’s isolationist position from world conflicts. Touching upon the many notes of that year’s history, two important baseball players were in the national spotlight. San Diego native Ted Williams became a Major League baseball player for the Boston Red Sox, and Yankee firstbaseman Lou “The Iron Horse” Gehrig made his dramatic farewell speech before a packed crowd in Yankee Stadium.

Born and raised in San Diego, Williams played baseball throughout his youth. After joining the Red Sox in 1939, he immediately emerged as one of the sport's best hitters. In 1941, Williams posted a .406 batting average; he is the last MLB player to bat over .400 in a season.

Williams played his entire 19-year MLB career, primarily as a fielder, for the Boston Red Sox (1939 to 1960). His career was interrupted twice by military service during World War II and the Korean War. Nicknamed "Teddy Ballgame," "The Kid," "The "The and Splinter," Splendid Thumper." Williams is regarded as one of the greatest hitters in baseball history.

Williams was a 19-time All-Star, a two-time recipient of the American League’s (AL) Most Valuable Player Award, a six-time AL batting champion, and a two-time Triple Crown winner. He finished his playing career with a .344 batting average, 521 home runs, and a .482 on-base percentage, the highest of all time. Today, William’s career batting average is the highest of any MLB player. Henry Louis “Lou” Gehrig played 17 seasons in MLB for the New York Yankees (1923-1939). Gehrig was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, hence the moniker “The Iron Horse.”

He was an All-Star seven consecutive times, the American League’s “Most Valuable Player twice,” and a member of six World Series champion teams. In 1939, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. and was the first MLB player to have his uniform number (4) retired by a team.

Gehrig set several major-league records during his career, including the most career grand slams (23) since

Lou Gehrig

Gehrig's consecutive game streak ended on May 2, 1939, when he voluntarily took himself out of the lineup, stunning both players and fans, after his performance on the field became hampered by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, (ALS) an incurable neuromuscular illness. The disease is commonly referred to in North America as "Lou Gehrig's disease.” His farewell from baseball was capped off by his iconic "Luckiest Man on the Face of the Earth" speech in Yankee Stadium. The end of the century’s fourth decade was filled with “feel good” movies, which helped to take the sting out of the Great Depression of the thirties. Hollywood outdid itself in 1939, producing films that have continually entertained every generation since.

Margaret Mitchell’s best-selling novel, “Gone With The Wind.” The Civil War epic was turned into a movie starring Hollywood’s most popular leading man, Clark Gable as Rhett Butler. Newcomer Vivian Leigh was cast in the pivotal role of Scarlett O’Hara. While the film won “Best Picture” at the Oscars, Gable lost out to Robert Donat for his role in “Good-bye Mr. Chips.” Leigh surprised everyone by beating out four other leading ladies for Best Actress for her memorable performance.

There were many great 1939 films, but the nominated “losers” of the Best Picture Oscar that year included: “Dark Victory,” “Good-bye Mr. Chips,” “Love Affair,” “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” “Ninotchka,” “Of Mice and Men,” “Stagecoach,” “Wuthering Heights,” and, of course, “The Wizard of Oz.” John Ford’s “Stagecoach” has become an important film because it made John Wayne a major box office star. In that film, Thomas Mitchell won Best Supporting Actor for his role as the drunken doctor aboard the “Stagecoach.”

While “Gone With The Wind” swept most of the Oscars in 1939, “Stagecoach” won an Oscar for Best Musical Score; “Wizard of Oz” for Original Score; and Best Song, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” Most from that era are now gone. “Gone With The Wind” survivor, Olivia de Haviland, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, died in July at the age of 104.

Protect Your Finances from “Cyberthieves”

You’ve no doubt heard reports of personal data being stolen and used for financial fraud – anything from online shopping on your credit cards to actual theft from your financial accounts. This problem won’t go away anytime soon – but you can take steps to defend yourself. Here are a few suggestions:

Use multifactor authentication or other extra security options with online accounts. Many of your online accounts offer extra security by giving you the option to prove your identity in different ways. With mutifactor authentication, you must provide at least two different factors to prove your identity when you log in to an account. This additional layer of security provides you with much greater protection. Be creative with passwords. Create different passwords for work, financial services sites, social media and email – and give each password some length and complexity.

Consider passphrases – actual words combined with symbols and numbers (for example, “ThisIsAPassphrase!2468”), for sites that allow them. Protect your computer and your key data. Keep your antivirus software updated. And don’t install bootleg or unlicensed software, which could infect your computer with a virus. Also, back up your important data. Watch out for fake websites or apps. When making financial transactions, be sure you’re on the website of your bank or financial institution – and not on a fake site established by hackers. Your financial statements should have the legitimate website, so bookmark it and use it when doing anything with your accounts. Also, be careful when downloading apps – stick with those from established providers such as Google Play or the App Store. Avoid “over-sharing” on social media. Cyberthieves constantly stalk social media platforms for information they can use to commit their crimes. You can help stymie them by limiting what you share online. It’s a good idea to keep your full name, address and birthday private. You might also avoid discussing your plans for upcoming vacations. And review your privacy settings periodically so that only people you know or approve can see your information. Limit use of public Wi-Fi. Hackers

often set up their own Wi-Fi networks in public areas, such as the computers found in hotel business centers. Ask an employee for the name of the legitimate network. And even when you use it, log off when you’re finished. Don’t take the bait of “phishers.” Cyberthieves go “phishing” for sensitive information – usernames, passwords and account numbers – by sending communications, such as emails, purporting to be from a business or financial institution with which you often do business. They may claim your account was “suspended” or that an “unauthorized transaction” was made, and you’ll be asked to click on a link that takes you to what appears to be the company’s website. If you go along with this request,

you could find malicious software being downloaded on your computer. But legitimate businesses generally won’t ask for account numbers or passwords unless you initiate the transaction. Other signs of phishing include threatening language, “urgent” requests, misspelled words or odd word choices. If an email does look suspicious to you, delete it without opening it.

This list is not exhaustive, but by putting these steps to work, you can at least reduce the risk of becoming victimized by cybercriminals. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor. Edward Jones, Member SIPC

Once upon a time, every church in America met at 11 a.m. Sunday morning. Then came multiple service time options, so that churches met at all sorts of hours. Then came Covid. The current state of church meetings isn’t about service times right now. It’s about service options. While I question and lament the restrictions our state has placed on public worship venues, we are doing our best to provide options that work for every comfort level. Option 1 – Live, indoor worship. In the middle of October, we moved our 11 a.m. service back into our main auditorium. We’re able to use our big screen and sound system. State of the art HEPA filters ensure germ-free air. People can see each

Option 2 – Live, outdoor worship. We hold our 9 a.m. service live in our parking lot. This is actually three options in one: some bring lawn chairs and sit (socially-distanced) under our shade sail. Others tailgate beside their cars. Still others stay in their cars, listening to the service over our FM broadcast channel. There’s a wonderful simplicity and family feeling to this service that we didn’t anticipate. Worshiping in the open air is exhilarating. When people in chairs applaud, people in cars honk. This always makes me smile. I suspect it makes the Lord smile too. Option 3 – Online worship, from home. Every weekend we offer four online worship experiences (5 p.m. Saturday, and 7, 9, & 11 a.m. Sunday). These offer recordingquality worship, along with the teaching. Our live chat room allows attendees to interact throughout the service, and people can worship in their pajamas. I’m eager to return to “normal worship.” But for now, we think these services provide options for everyone who wants to attend church. To learn more, come to www.newsongchurch.com.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

Today is Veterans Day. Veterans often hear thank you for your service, and I would like to share a few thoughts on that phrase. But first, I want to thank all of the veterans and especially their families for their service and sacrifice. I know that most of you volunteered, and that many of you have some good memories of your time in uniform. And I also know that many of you feel proud of your contribution and may wonder why someone would thank you for something you feel proud of. Well, I would argue that those that thank you recognize that you did something that very few do. At an early age, you decided to put something above yourself, in this case our country. That’s special and recognizes a selfless characteristic in you that many think is lost in today’s world. It doesn’t matter what you did or what branch you were in, when you signed on the dotted line, you offered your life in defense of this country. That’s a powerful commitment. Now for those of you who didn’t serve in the armed forces, but put something above yourself for the good of our country or your community, I want to also say, thank you for your service. Because it’s the people who serve who are our communities’ heroes. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, MacPaul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

New Start-U p To Bring Jobs

Innovative companies continue to be attracted to the City of Vista. The latest start-up, Cue Health, recently received a $481 million U.S. Department of Health & Human Resources contract for its rapid COVID-19 test. The National Basketball Association is currently using the rapid test, which detects the virus’s genetic material, allowing for results on-site in approximately 25 minutes, using a smartphone app. The vast majority of their test production will go to the federal government, which is acquiring about 6 million of the single-use tests. What’s also exciting, is this new venture will bring 500 new jobs to our region. This is an important niche to fill during this crisis and we welcome CUE Health to our city.

Hunker down?

Probably of Scottish origin, “hunker” is a 16th century word with Germanic roots describing the act of crouching on the balls of one’s feet awaiting an impending outcome, but ready to take immediate action. Politicians and other experts have been telling us to “hunker down” at home during the Covid crisis but that’s a misuse of the term. What they’re really asking us to do, and what we are really doing is “cocooning.” “Cocooning,” is the act of insulating or hiding oneself from the normal social environment” Hunkering down is what you do to survive a hurricane or mortar

We cocooned as a Nation in 2001 after 9/11 and again during the financial meltdown of 2008, but nothing in this century compares, in intensity or duration, to the great “Corona cocoon.” For the most part we don’t go to meetings, church, gyms or movies. We don’t take vacations or driving trips and we wear masks when we are out in public. If that isn’t enough to upset your equilibrium, toss in four years of bitter political infighting, vandalism in the streets of our cities, a Governor who threatens to shut San Diego down every other week and now “The most important election in America’s history” is inconclusively mired in controversy with no end in sight.

attention to the world around us. Our financial, business and personal relationships were private and done in person, phone or mail. Today we’re stressed at being forced to conduct financial, business and personal relationships electronically where there is little expectation of privacy and the constant threat of fraud and theft. Younger generations who never knew the world before the Internet can’t comprehend our reluctance to adapt to their connected existence and shake their heads at our ineptitude. It’s little consolation that in twenty years they too will suffer the same head shake from their children as evolving technology tosses them into the dustbin of cultural obsolescence.

This perfect storm of anxiety producing events has taken a toll on all of us but particularly on the folks over fifty who remember what America was like in the days before the Internet and smart phones. The small business and home computer users who make up the majority of our customer base fit that demographic. We grew up in a more stable, friendlier America. We didn’t know, nor did we much care, about the politics of our friends, relatives and neighbors, other things were far more important. We were accustomed to face to face interaction and paying

So for those of you who feel a bit tossed about in this sea of pandemics, politics, technology and Internet culture our advice is this. “Stay in your lane,” your mind, spirit and instincts are just as good as they ever were. Stay connected with your friends and relatives. Don’t allow yourself to procrastinate on things that need doing. The serenity prayer is perfect for those times when you feel overwhelmed. “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, “and wisdom to know the difference. Our final word of advice is“Illegitimi non carborundum.” Google it!

we’ve found some fun and interesting North County places to have lunch. One of those places is Pauma Casino.

We arrive in mid-afternoon. The restaurant is large and bright with floor to ceiling windows. The tables are well spaced. The restaurant is typically less than half full, there is never a wait and we always get a window table. They have a great kitchen. It’s “old school” harking back to the time when Casino restaurants used great food bargains to lure gamblers in. The “chefs recipe” bean soup and chili ($5 a bowl) are the as good as it gets. We usually share a huge club sandwich with more French fries than we can eat ($10). A couple of iced teas bring our lunch total to $25. Service is fast, the wait staff is down-home friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. We feel obliged to hit a couple of slots on the way out and sometimes we even win.

California Court Ruling Declares Newsom Violates Constitutional Power - SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) released the following statement after a California Superior Court Judge issued a tentative ruling declaring Governor Newsom has violated the Constitution. The ruling is in response to a lawsuit filed by Republican lawmakers Kevin Kiley and James Gallagher which challenged Governor Newsom’s ‘oneman rule’ and abuse of power. The ruling states that there is good cause for a permanent injunction restraining the Governor from issuing any more unconstitutional orders. “Today’s ruling is a monumental victory for ‘We the People.’ The governor seems to have forgotten who he works for and this ruling should jog his memory. I am extremely proud of my Republican colleagues who continued our fight against the Governor’s unilateral abuse of power all the way to the court.

Woman's Club of Escondido Celebrates 110th Anniversary On November 2nd The Woman's Club of Escondido celebrated the 110th Anniversary of the organization of the club here in Escondido. The club was organized on November 10, 1910, by a small group of women, headed by Mrs. A. W. Wohlford, who got together to discuss starting a woman's club for the improvement and cultural growth of all women. They agreed it should be open to all women and by their influence help those less fortunate than themselves. The Club started with 15 members. Soon they started wanting their own clubhouse. In 1917, the husband of one of the members donated a 40foot lot on Lime Street (now Broadway) to the club and this started there journey of having their own clubhouse.

At that time, women did not have the right to vote nor could they borrow money from the banks. With about 50 members they started raising money, and construction began on the clubhouse the last week of 1917. They watched the 30x50 building rise; it had a stage, kitchen, dressing room at one end and would accommodate 225 people. The cost of all this was the total sum of $1,730.00, and they furnished it. On March 17, 1918, they held their first club meeting there. They were well on their way.

We were honored to have Escondido Mayor Paul "Mac" McNamara in attendance at the Anniversary event and he presented a Proclamation to the Club from the City of Escondido. Also in attendance was Consuelo Martinez, Vice Mayor. A

We heard also from some of the organizations we have supported: Christiann Stewart of the Escondido Boys & Girls Club, Varinda Missett from Interfaith Community Services and Denise Litreal from the Salvation Army. After the program we had a wonderful catered lunch from Red Tail Catering.

The Anniversary was a special day to recognize, congratulate and give a toast to the women who made the Club a reality, and for the many thousands of members since then that have continued the club through the years. Also, it was a time to share with the community what the Club stands for and tell of some of the philanthropic projects that we have supported over the years. A short Club history of the 110 years was presented also, and we enjoyed a beautiful day outside, with the required social distancing and masks.
