Lots of fascinating stories come across the editor’s desk. Some stories will be remembered only by old timers. Some of our younger readers will find the stories not only new, but a fascinating look at history. Such a story came to me thanks to Go Air Force Magazine, from the July, 2011 issue, which was forwarded to me by good friend, Brigadier General Jim Greshik, USAF (retired) of North San Diego County. Sit back, have a good read, and learn what really happened when we bombed Nagasaki . . . the final action that brought WWII to an end: The first atomic mission was executed perfectly. On the second one, almost everything went wrong.

Hiroshima lay in ruins. Eighty thousand people had been killed instantly and two-thirds of the city destroyed by the atomic bomb dropped by the B-29 Enola Gay on Aug. 6, 1945. For Japan, the war had been lost for some time. Since the beginning of the year, American B-29s had been systematically demolishing Japans urban areas and industrial centers with incendiary bombs.

The military regime refused to accept defeat. Japan still had five million troops, 10,000 airplanes, more than half of them configured for suicide missions and a sevenmonth supply of aviation fuel. The United States resumed the firebombing missions and continued planning for an invasion of Japanese home islands. Sooner or later, the bombing and naval interdiction would make it impossible for Japan to continue, but no one knew how long that would take. The invasion plan called for the commitment of a US force of 1,865,000. Another year of war plus an invasion of Japan probably meant US casualties in the range of a quarter million and similar losses for the Japanese. The alternative was to drop another atomic bomb. A second bomb was in place at North Field on Tinian in the Mariana Islands, home base of the 509th Composite Group, which had flown the Hiroshima mission. No other atomic bombs were yet available, but the United States wanted the Japanese to believe there was an unlimited supply. The mission was planned for Aug. 11 but a forecast for bad weather moved it up to Aug. 9. The bomb, called

"Fat Man," was stored under tight security and controlled conditions in an air-conditioned hut with a rubberized floor to prevent accidental sparks. On the evening of Aug. 8, it was loaded aboard the B-29 that would deliver it. Thus began the chain of events that would culminate in the detonation of the atomic bomb at Nagasaki the next day.

Whereas Hiroshima was a perfectly executed operation, almost nothing went right on the second atomic mission, and it came close to failure. This mission drew less attention, both in news at the

time and by historians later, than did the bombing of Hiroshima . The main problems with the Nagasaki operation have been known since 1945, but the extent of difficulties and the discord among participants were not fully disclosed until the 1990s.

The pilot in command for Nagasaki was Maj. Charles W. Sweeney, 25, chosen for the assignment by the 509th commander, Col . Paul W. Tibbets Jr., who had flown the Hiroshima mission himself. Sweeney was commander of the 393rd Bomb Squadron. He had been on the

Hiroshima mission, flying the instrument plane, The Great Artiste, which measured the effects of the detonation. Over Hiroshima, he was 30 feet off the right wing of Tibbets plane, the Enola Gay. Sweeney had drawn that assignment because Tibbets intended him to fly the next mission, if there was one, and wanted him to have the step-by-step experience. The primary target for the next mission was not Nagasaki, it was Kokura, about 95 miles southwest of Hiroshima, where one of the largest arsenals in Japan was located, surrounded by urban industrial structures.

Nagasaki was the secondary target, to be struck only if circumstances ruled out the attack on Kokura.

Six B-29s were allocated to the mission. Sweeney would fly the lead aircraft and drop the bomb. The Great Artiste was still rigged with the instrument package it carried at Hiroshima, so Sweeney and Capt. Frederick C. Bock switched airplanes. Sweeney and his crew took Bockscar and Bock and his crew flew The Great Artiste, which would again serve as the instrument plane.

To avoid identification as atomic bomb aircraft, the six B-29s bore the triangle N tail marking of the 44th Bomb Group instead of the forward arrow of the 509th. None of the mission aircraft had their names painted on the nose. This led to confusion for William L. Laurence of the New York Times, who was authorized to go along and write a first-person account. He thought Sweeney was still flying The Great Artiste and so reported in his article. In fact, Laurence himself was aboard The Great Artiste, which was flown by Bock. Lt. Col . James I. Hopkins Jr., the group operations officer, flew the observation/photo airplane, inelegantly named Big Stink. According to Sweeney, Hopkins had a noncooperative attitude, possibly because the mission commander was his junior. He walked away from Sweeney's reminder about the

It was raining hard and......... a big puddle had formed in front of the little Irish pub.

An old man stood beside the puddle holding a stick with a string on the end and jiggled it up and down in the water. A curious gentleman asked what he was doing. 'Fishing,' replied the old man.

rendezvous plan, saying, "I know how to make a rendezvous."

There were two weather airplanes. Enola Gay, flown by Capt. George Marquardt, would go ahead to report conditions from the primary target, Kokura, and Laggin Dragon, flown by Capt. Charles F. McKnight, would scout the weather at Nagasaki. Capt. Ralph Taylor would position the sixth B-29, Full House, at Iwo Jima as a backup aircraft. Three mission specialists augmented Sweeney's regular crew on Bockscar: a radar countermeasures officer and two weaponeers with special knowledge and understanding of the atomic bomb. The senior weaponeer was Navy Cmdr. Frederick L. Ashworth, who had managed the field testing of the atomic bomb at Los Alamos, N.M.

Sweeney had no previous combat experience, but Ashworth had commanded a squadron of Grumman TBF Avengers at Guadalcanal. In the aftermath of the mission it would be said, notably by Tibbets, that Sweeney had deferred too much to Ashworth. "The job of Ashworth was to arm the bomb, assure its readiness to be dropped, and, ultimately, make the "no drop" call if something went wrong with the detonating system," Tibbets said. "Those tasks defined the realm of his authority aboard Bockscar." It is sometimes argued that Sweeney and Ashworth were in "joint command." That is wrong. Sweeney was clearly the mission commander. Ashworth’s authori-

ty covered decisions about the bomb because of his specialized knowledge. Influence was another matter, and Ashworth exerted a powerful influence on Sweeney. Fat Man was loaded into Bockscar's bomb bay at 10 p.m. on Aug. 8. It was a plutonium bomb, more complex and more efficient than the "Little Boy" uranium device dropped at Hiroshima. Fat Man worked on an "implosion" principle. At its core was a subcritical mass of plutonium, surrounded by 64 high-explosive charges. Upon detonation, the inward pressure of the charges compressed the plutonium core from the size of a grapefruit to the size of a tennis ball, achieving the supercritical mass to trigger the bomb. Complications. The crews briefed shortly before midnight, had their pre-mission breakfast at the mess hall and were driven out to their airplanes at 1 a.m. The first big problem came when flight engineer MSgt. John D. Kuharek notified Sweeney that the fuel in the reserve tank in Bockscar's rear bomb bay bladder was not pumping. Of 7,250 gallons of fuel aboard, 600 gallons were in the reserve tank. Sweeney climbed out of the aircraft and went to talk with Tibbets, who was watching from the ramp.

Tibbets told Sweeney he did not need the fuel in the bladder, it was only there to balance the weight of the bomb in the forward bomb bay, but if Sweeney disagreed, he had the authority as commander to cancel the mission. Sweeney decided to go. Tibbets

There were four churches and a synagogue in a small Ohio town: a Presbyterian church, a Baptist church, a Methodist church, a Catholic church and a Jewish synagogue. Each church and the synagogue had a problem with squirrels.

The Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will. At the Baptist church the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a water slide on the baptistery and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week. The Methodist church decided

pointed out that he was off to a late start and that he should not linger at the rendezvous point if the escort aircraft did not show up.

Bockscar roared down the runway and into the night sky at 3:49 a.m. On the Hiroshima mission, the Little Boy bomb had not been armed until Enola Gay was airborne. Fat Man was too complicated for that. However, some of the arming and firing circuits in the nose of the bomb were disabled by two green-handled "safing" plugs. After Bockscar was off the ground and before it reached pressurization altitude, Ashworth opened a hatch between the cockpit and the bomb bay, removed the two green plugs, and replaced them with red arming plugs. The bomb was ready to go.

The original plan had been for the three aircraft to reassemble over Iwo Jima, which had been the rendezvous for the Hiroshima mission. On Aug. 9, a typhoon was gathering momentum around Iwo Jima so the rendezvous point was Yakushima, a small island off the coast of Kyushu. "Because of bad weather at lower altitudes and our proximity to the Japanese mainland, the rendezvous would be at 30,000 feet instead of 8,000 as on the Hiroshima mission," Sweeney said, which consumed additional fuel. The Great Artiste was at the rendezvous point but Big Stink was

that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist Church. Two weeks later the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the water slide. But the Catholic Church came up with a very creative strategy. They baptized all the squirrels and consecrated them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas and Easter.

Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue, but it's rumored that they took one squirrel and circumcised him and they haven't seen a squirrel on their property since. ••••• One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. ••••• Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable. ••••• First you forget names, then you forget faces.

not. The orders from Tibbets were explicit. Make a single 360-degree circle of the rendezvous area, then proceed. "My orders were to wait 15 minutes and then leave for the target, but the mission brief also called for three airplanes to proceed to the target," Sweeney said. A message from Marquardt in the Enola Gay said the weather at Kokura was clear for bombing, but Sweeney circled the rendezvous for 45 minutes. Unknown to Sweeney, who was maintaining radio silence, Hopkins in Big Stink was circling at 39,000 feet, 9,000 feet higher than he was supposed to be.

"When only one plane showed up, I told Sweeney that I wanted to be sure that we had the instrumentcarrying aircraft with us," Ashworth said. "Why Sweeney didn t tell me that the instrument aircraft was already with us, I don’t know." In later years, Tibbets said Sweeney's delay may have been due to pressure from Ashworth, a point that Ashworth vigorously denied. Sweeney said, "When Hopkins failed to make the rendezvous and couldn’t find us, for some inexplicable reason he broke radio silence and radioed back to Tinian, Has Sweeney aborted? The message got garbled in transmission and was received on Tinian as "Sweeney aborted." Emergency air-sea rescue preparations were terminated as a result. "If we had to ditch in the ocean, no one would be there to pick us up," Sweeney said.

The extra time spent at the rendezvous was costly. When Bockscar got to Kokura, the target was no longer clear, partially obscured by drifting smoke from a B-29 firebomb strike, two nights before, on a steel mill at Yawata, just to the north. As Sweeney approached the initial point to begin his bomb run, some of the landmarks, including the river and some streets and buildings,

were visible, and he thought there was a good chance of sighting the target, the Kokura arsenal. This was important because the target had to be bombed visually, not by radar. "Kermit Beahan, our bombardier, had to see the target to insure accuracy during the bomb run," said Lt. Fred J. Olivi, the third pilot on Bockscar. "The orders were very specific."

But Beahan couldn’t see the target on the bomb run, nor could he see it on two additional bomb runs that Sweeney made. Again, Tibbets blamed the influence of Ashworth, who denied responsibility for the decision but acknowledged years later in an interview, "After the first run and no drop, I did go up to the flight deck and suggested to Sweeney that it might be possible to see the target if we approached it from a different direction." "By this time, Bockscar had consumed so much fuel that there was serious question of whether she could make it to Nagasaki, drop the bomb, and return to Okinawa," which was the closest American airfield, Tibbets said. "At this point, the mission should have been scrubbed." Instead, Sweeney headed for the secondary target, Nagasaki, 97 miles to the southwest and in the same general direction as Okinawa.

Nagasaki was a major military port, one of Japan's largest shipbuilding centers and the location of several large plants of the Mitsubishi Corp., which turned out torpedoes and other weapons and war materiel. The city lay at the head of a long bay, with a long ridge of hills screening the main residential section from the Urakami river valley where the Mitsubishi factories were, a mile and a half to the north. As Bockscar and The Great Artiste began their approach, it was 11:50 a.m. Tinian time and 10:50 a.m. in the city below. Nagasaki was under heavy cloud cover, making a visual drop impossible. Sweeney had enough

fuel for only one bomb run and he was not going to pass it up. He conferred with Ashworth in the "interest of interservice harmony" and proposed a drop by radar, contrary to the explicit orders. Ashworth concurred. Twenty-five seconds out, with the bomb bay doors open, a break suddenly developed in the clouds, and Beahan yelled, "I’ve got it! I ve got it!" Sweeney immediately gave control of the airplane to Beahan, whose Norden bombsight was linked to the autopilot. It was too late to drop on the original aiming point, the docks on the east side of the harbor, so Beahan quickly picked a new aiming point in the industrial valley. As the bomb fell free, Sweeney swung the airplane into a steep, diving 155-degree turn to the left to put some distance between Bockscar and the shock wave. Bock made a corresponding high-G turn in the other direction. The bomb detonated at 1,890 feet over the Urakami Valley at 11:02 a.m. local time in Nagasaki. When the shock wave reached Bockscar, it was 12 miles away.

The mushroom cloud rose toward 45,000 feet. The explosion was almost midway between the Mitsubishi Steel and Arms Works and the Mitsubishi-Urakami Ordnance Works, which were destroyed. The damage was less severe in the main part of the city, on the other side of the hills. About 40,000 persons were killed instantly, a staggering death toll, but much lower than it would have been if the bomb had fallen on the original aiming point around the docks. Landing on Fumes. Between circling at the rendezvous and the three bomb runs at Kokura, Sweeney had lost more than an hour and a half of time, and it was catching up with him. Fuel had become critical. He set course for Yontan Field on Okinawa, which was the nearest airfield, some 350 miles farther on. He descended by stages to save fuel, and throttled

the propellers back from 2,000 rpm to 1,600.

Fifteen minutes out, Bockscar called the Yontan tower with a Mayday but got no response. Another call and an emergency flare made no change in airfield traffic. Bockscar then fired every flare it had, including those signaling "aircraft out of fuel," "prepare for crash," and "dead and wounded aboard." Traffic cleared and Sweeney took it in for a rough landing. The fuel remaining, as measured later by the flight engineer, was seven gallons. "The instrument carrying airplane landed on Okinawa shortly after we did, and strangely who should arrive shortly thereafter but the third plane that had never joined us," Ashworth said. "It had gone to Nagasaki and done some observing after the bomb was dropped." Sweeney was taken to see Lt. Gen. Jimmy Doolittle, commander of Eighth Air Force, who had moved his headquarters to Okinawa a few weeks earlier. Doolittle heard Sweeney's story and did not delay his return to Tinian. After a quick meal and refueling, the crew flew the last leg of their mission, landing on Tinian at 11:30 p.m.

Sweeney got a cool reception from Tibbets and an even cooler one the next morning from Maj. Gen. Curtis E. LeMay, chief of staff of Strategic Air Forces of the Pacific. In the end, LeMay decided that an investigation into the conduct of the Nagasaki mission would serve no good purpose, and little was said about the problems. The Nagasaki mission had tipped the balance toward the faction in Japan that wanted to end the war. The military hardliners continued to resist surrender, but even Gen. Korechika Anami, the war minister, acknowledged that the Americans might have 100

One day Barb said, 'Rose, we both loved playing women's softball all our lives, and we played all through High School. Please do me one favor:

when you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's women's softball there.'

Rose looked up at Barb from her deathbed and said, 'Barb, you've been my best friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favor for you.' Shortly after that, Rose passed on.

A few nights later, Barb was awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to her, 'Barb, Barb.' 'Who is it?' asked Barb, sitting up suddenly. 'Who is it?' 'Barb -- it's me, Rose.'

'You're not Rose. Rose just died.'

'I'm telling you, it's me, Rose,' insisted the voice. 'Rose! Where are you?'

'In Heaven,' replied Rose. 'I have some really good news and a little bad news.' 'Tell me the good news first,' said Barb.

'The good news,' Rose said, 'is that there's softball in Heaven. Better yet all of our old buddies

aware of these changes or did they vote on these proposals like the Oceanside council does on their water district.

I know that this credit will never be reinstalled, nor do I feel that Rincon objected strenuously to this elimination. Why would they? This increases their revenues by the 100s or 1000s of dollars per month, so all of you frugal users are out of luck in my opinion. However, the Big Users of water (40,000 gallons or more per month) had a decrease of almost 7%. Go figure! Who if anyone in a Government agency approves the rates like the Public Utilities Commission approves the telecommunication, gas and electricity?

We have the Rincon Del Diablo Municipal Water District which in English translates to the Rincon of the devil. Enough said. Joseph Tami Escondido

Heaven

If there is such a place as heaven, the gatekeeper(s) should let dogs in first. They deserve it more than humans.

Most dogs are better than most people. Absolute love for you, dedicated, loyal, honest, devoted, trustworthy, and sensitive to your needs. They know when you are happy, when you are depressed, and when you are sick . . . and they respond to you accordingly.

They can say more with their eyes than the most talented poet . . . most people can't pass the test that dogs do every day. The Observer Escondido, CA.

Supporting California Students

Education is one of my top priorities in Sacramento. As the mother of a high school student, I am keenly interested in improving California’s schools and test scores. In response, I joined my Assembly colleagues to support a legislative package designed to reform California’s declining education system. The package included the following bills:

I co-authored AB 1048, which supported our local school districts’ ability to regulate their budgets by repealing the local schools budget reserve cap enacted as part of the 2014 budget. The bill failed in the Education Committee, though reconsideration was granted and further hearings are possible next year. I co-authored AB 1248, which requires that teachers achieve three years of successful evaluations before being granted tenure. The bill passed the Education Committee and may be considered again next year I co-authored AB 889, which authorizes high school stu-

Marcos (CSUSM), 333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Road. The exhibit is free and open to the public during all library hours. Visitors may purchase a daily or timed permit in any general parking lot utilizing the daily permit machines, with rates from $3-$9, depending upon on length of stay.

dents to begin their college careers earlier by concurrently enrolling in STEM courses at the community college level. The bill has passed the Education and Higher Education Committees; further hearings are likely next year

I co-authored AB 1099, which promotes transparency so that parents and the community will know how teachers and administrators are evaluated. The bill passed the Assembly, but died in the Senate Appropriations Committee I supported AB 1044, to ensure that teacher job retention will be based on ability, not seniority. The bill stalled in the Education Committee, but could be heard again next year. I supported SB 725, allowing 2015 graduates to receive diplomas that would have been denied because of administrative problems involving the exit exam. Signed by Governor.

California’s education system was once the envy of the nation. When the Legislature reconvenes in January, the fight to improve our schools and secure our children’s future will continue.

Dear Family,

I'm not dead yet. Thanksgiving is still important to me. If being in my Last Will and Testament is important to you, then you might consider being with me for my favorite holiday. Dinner is at 2:00. Not 2:15. Not 2:05.

Arrive late and you get what's left over.

Last year, that moron Marshall fried a turkey in one of those contraptions and practically burned the deck off the house. This year, the only peanut oil used to make the meal will be from the secret scoop of peanut butter I add to the carrot soup. Jonathan, your last new wife was an idiot. You don't arrive at someone's house on Thanksgiving needing to use the oven and the stove. Honest to God, I thought you might have learned after two wives date them longer and save us all the agony of another divorce. Now, the house rules are slightly different This year because I have decided that 47% of you don't know how to take care of nice things. Paper plates and red Solo cups might be bad for the environment, but I'll be gone soon and that will be your problem to deal with. House Rules:

1. The University of Texas no longer plays Texas A&M. The television stays off during the meal.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

2. The "no cans for kids" rule still exists. We are using 2 liter bottles because your children still open a third can before finishing the first two. Parents can fill a child's cup when it is empty. All of the cups have names on them and I'll be paying close attention to refills.

3. Chloe, last year we were at Trudy's house and I looked the other way when your Jell-O salad showed up. This year, if Jell-O salad comes in the front door it will go right back out the back door with the garbage. Save yourself some time, honey. You've never been a good cook and you shouldn't bring something that wiggles more than you. Buy something from the bakery.

4. Grandmothers give grandchildren cookies and candy. That is a fact of life. Your children can eat healthy at your home. At my home, they can eat whatever they like as long as they finish it. 5. I cook with bacon and bacon grease. That's nothing new. Your being a vegetarian doesn't change the fact that stuffing without bacon is like egg salad without eggs. Even the green bean casserole has a little bacon grease in it. That's why it tastes so good. Not eating bacon is just not natural. And as far as being healthy... look at me. I've outlived almost everyone I know. 6. Salad at Thanksgiving is a waste of space.

7. I do not like cell phones. Leave them in the car.

8. I do not like video cameras. There will be 32 people here. I am sure you can capture lots of memories without the camera pointed at me. 9. Being a mother means you have to actually pay attention to the kids. I have nice things and I don't put them away just because company is coming over. Mary, watch your kids and I'll watch my things.

10. Rhonda, a cat that requires a shot twice a day is a cat that has lived too many lives. I think staying home to care for the cat is your way of letting me know that I have lived too many lives too. I can live with that. Can you?

11. Words mean things. I say what I mean. Let me repeat: You don't need to bring anything means you don't need to bring anything. And if I did tell you to bring something, bring it in the quantity I said. Really, this doesn't have to be difficult. 12. Domino's and cards are bet-

America’s ‘Rough-Riding’ President

Theodore Roosevelt, often referred to as Teddy or TR, was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, reformer and 26th President of the United States, (1901 to 1909).

Born a sickly child with debilitating asthma, Roosevelt embraced a strenuous lifestyle and successfully regained his health. He integrated his exuberant personality, vast range of interests, and world-famous achievements into a "cowboy" persona defined by robust masculinity. Home-schooled, he became a lifelong naturalist before attending Harvard College.

ter than anything that requires a battery or an on/off switch. That was true when you were kids and it's true now that you have kids. 13. Showing up for Thanksgiving guarantees presents at Christmas. Not showing up guarantees a card that may or may not be signed. In memory of your Grandfather, the back fridge will be filled with beer. Drink until it is gone. I prefer wine anyway. But one from each family needs to be the designated driver. I really mean all of the above. Love You, Grandma.

A Cowboy’s Tombstone

Following the deaths of his wife and mother, he escaped to the wilderness and operated a cattle ranch in the Dakotas. He returned to run unsuccessfully for Mayor of New York City in 1886. He served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy under William McKinley, resigning after one year to serve with the “Rough Riders,” gaining national fame for courage during the War in Cuba. Returning a war hero, he was elected Governor of New York in 1898. Frustrated leaders of the GOP party establishment, who were at odds with Roosevelt’s policies, wanted to get rid of him, so they made Roosevelt McKinley's running mate for vice president in the election of 1900. Roosevelt campaigned vigorously across the country, helping McKinley win. The assassination of President McKinley in September 1901 brought Roosevelt, then 42, to the White House making him the youngest President in history. President, Roosevelt championed his "Square Deal" domestic policies, promising the average citizen fairness, breaking of the giant corporate trusts, tighter regulation of railroads, and government ensured pure food and drugs.

Making conservation a top priority, he established myriad new national parks, forests, and monuments in order to preserve the nation's natural resources. In foreign policy, he concentrated on Central America, where he began construction of the Panama Canal. He also greatly expanded the United States Navy and sent the Great White Fleet on a world tour to project the United States' naval power, promoting his “Big Stick” policy (“Walk softly, but carry a big stick”). His successful efforts to end the Russo-Japanese War won Roosevelt the 1906 Nobel Peace Prize.

Elected in 1904 to a full term, he continued pursuit of progressive policies, eventually culminating in blockage of his legislative agenda in Congress. Roosevelt successfully groomed his close friend, William Howard Taft, for the presidency. But Taft turned against many of the Roosevelt policies, causing the former President to regret not running for reelection. He threw his hat back in the ring, but was disappointed. Frustrated for not winning the 1912 GOP nomination, Roosevelt founded his own party, the Progressive "Bull Moose" Party, and called for wide-ranging progressive reforms. The third-party split allowed Democrat Woodrow Wilson to win the White House and control of the Congress. Roosevelt has consistently been ranked by scholars as one of the

3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust, and doesn't lie to you. 4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed, and likes to be with you. 5. It's very, very important that these four women do not know each other or you could end up dead like me. One Eared Admiral

Years ago, a young Navy Pilot was severely injured while ejecting from his A-4 Skyhawk due to engine failure during a catapult shot from the aircraft carrier, but due to the heroics of rescue helicopter and the ship's hospital staff, the only permanent injury was the loss of one ear. Since he was now physically impaired he did not remain on flight status but eventually became an Admiral. However, during his career, he was always sensitive about his appearance. One day, the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a

The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy-type, and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview, the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?" The Master Chief answered, "Why, yes, Admiral. I couldn't help but notice that you're missing your starboard ear, and I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side.” The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact, and threw him out of his office.

The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, when asked this same question, answered, "Well, yes, Sir. You seem to be short one ear." The Admiral threw him out, as well. The third interview was with the Marine Sergeant Major. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Master Chiefs put together. The Admiral wanted this guy, but went ahead with the same question. "Do you notice anything different about me?"

December 16. The need for toys grows each year. Many parents work several jobs to pay for necessities, often not having anything left over for special gifts for their children for the holiday season.

Sweeney left active duty in 1946 as a lieutenant colonel, went to the Massachusetts Air National Guard, and retired in 1976 as a major general. He died in 2004. Ashworth rose to the grade of vice admiral, commanded the Sixth Fleet, and retired from the Navy in 1968. He died in 2005. Shortly after the mission, Bockscar's name and familiar nose art were painted on the fuselage. The airplane can be seen at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, where it has been on display since 1961. Leading figures in the operation differed in the way they remembered and told the story, but their disagreement was not widely known until the 1990s. An unsuccessful attempt by the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in 1994 to exhibit the Enola Gay in a politically charged exhibit inspired Sweeney to write his memoirs, published in 1997. Ashworth wrote a letter to Sweeney's publisher itemizing numerous mistakes. In 1998, Tibbets revised his memoirs, adding a chapter on Nagasaki, sharply critical of Sweeney.

DAR Member Spoke About Her Multi-Great Grandmother - Wanda Prosser, member of Santa Margarita Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), invited Laverne Boyd, DAR member of Monserate Chapter, to the Linares Chapter meeting. Gail Mewes, DAR member of Linares, gave a talk about her multi-great grandmother, Frances Alcock Hutchins.

Hutchins was one of the women accused in the witchcraft hysteria in the 1600’s. Boyd and Mewes shared common stories of their grandmothers. Both were widowed, one 71 years old, the other 80, and both were landholders. They were accused of witchcraft, jailed, and their land taken. They

and Sweeney," said historian Donald L. Miller. "Tibbets is convinced that Ashworth told Sweeney to wait for the observation plane." Ashworth said that "we had the wrong guy flying the plane," Miller added. "Yet he blames Tibbets for picking Sweeney."

Everyone credited bombardier Beahan for saving the mission. "Major General Sweeney wouldn't be a general and Admiral Ashworth wouldn't be an admiral if Beahan hadn't done the job that he did," said Ashworth. A particularly valuable account came in Decision at Nagasaki: The Mission That Almost Failed, privately published in 1999 by the third pilot, Fred Olivi, who avoided accusations and acrimony and who had no need to defend his own actions. Olivi reconstructed the flight in detail from his diary, written in 1945 with the aid of an official logbook borrowed from navigator James F. Van Pelt. The amazing thing is that, despite all, the mission succeeded. The military results were more effective and the death toll was lower than if the operation had been flown as planned. Nagasaki was the final blow that induced the Japanese to surrender, bringing World War II to an end.

Economic Development in Escondido

Thanks to a heavy dose of reality, Mayor Abed’s business park promises have finally stalled. It would have cost Escondido taxpayers sixty million dollars to relocatethe public works yard, millions more to prepare the vacant land for use. Many Escondido voters loved hearing fantastical promises about economic development and prosperity. It sounds great - more jobs, more money, more opportunity – but did you hear the plan?

friggen' ear."

Cooking Plan

A man told his doctor during a routine physical that he had begun experiencing bouts of dizziness, vertigo, and nausea on some mornings. The doctor asked many questions, and eventually came to determine that the symptoms only occurred when the man was cooking breakfast, and only when bacon was being fried. The doctor asked the man how he cooked his bacon.

Antonio and Bijou, 3-year-old New Zealand mixes, are two bonded bunnies in need of a special home together.

These sweet boys have been in our care most of their lives and would love a sweet family to show them how great a loving home is!

Both Antonio and Bijou are very sweet and love to lounge stretched out. They can often be found snuggling together or grooming each other. After a good rest, they both love to dance and play in their x-pen with a cottontail cottage. These two wonderful bunnies are twice the fun, and twice the love – show them the love they’ve been missing by adopting them today!

Antonio and Bijou are available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway, and are currently in foster care. To learn more about making them part of your family, please call (760) 888-2247.

What plan?

There is no proven formula for achieving prosperity but surely we can recall the basics of capitalism to help us contrast the conflicting philosophies within our own City. Subsidize business vs. Get out of the way of business. In its purest form, capitalism is the economic philosophy that a free market will ensure the delivery of products and services if demand exists and there is a profit to be made. Conversely, if there is

Well, said the patient, "I do exactly what it says to do.....first, I remove bacon from package....second, I place bacon on a hot frying pan....third, I start turning frequently." Phyllis Dillerisms...

Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age. As your beauty fades, so will his eyesight. Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?

no demand subsidizing production would be a distortion of capitalism.

The Mayor’s magical thinking wasn’t enough to achieve his goal of creating a business park that would be “up for grabs” to businesses looking to locate in Escondido without incurring the full cost of land and upgrades. Spending your taxpayer money to subsidize new business while unfairly competing with the Escondido Research and Technology Center (ERTC) would have been a true abomination of capitalism.

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing. (Or brushing your teeth while eating an Oreo.)

The Pastor Says . . .

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 Church San Marcos, CA.

Love is Everything

Love is everything. Genuine Love. In life, of course, there is so much else to seek…but love is actually the supreme goal. I love the way the Message words the “Love Chapter” of the Bible.

“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making

‘Chuckles’ Cont. on Page 11

everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, "Jump," and it jumps, but I don't love, I'm nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.”

As I look back, I realize that failure to love as He loved is the greatest shortcoming in life. And my example of love is none other than God Himself. Jesus loves me. John 3:16. (Yes, we even named a ministry after it… Mission 316 Church).

If I’m loving to God, others and, yes, even myself, I find it impossible to sin. All human failure comes from a lack of love. So here it is … the ultimate goal of life … love. I want to practice it more and more. How about you?

proposed plans for two roundabouts in Carlsbad go through.

This past Saturday, teams hit 10 parks in Escondido with rakes, shovels, hoes, and good old-fashioned elbow grease, to tidy up the various parks and make them sparkle.

Carlsbad planners are looking at ways to ease traffic on the busy coastal thoroughfare, known as Carlsbad Boulevard within the city limits, and make it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the narrow, two-lane section between Cannon Road and Manzano Drive.

Community Initiative. The goal of Escondido Shines is to invite all members of the community to participate in a day of service and celebration, with a focus on beautifying neighborhoods and businesses, promoting friendships and community spirit.

Large piles of yellow bags were collected, stuffed with grass, leaves, debris ... all waiting to be picked up and disposed of.

Organizations providing support and manpower included the County of San Diego, The Escondido Rotary Club, Escondido Downtown Business Association, Escondido Tamale Festival, Grand Landury Plance, Encuentros Leadership, Escondido Union School District, Escondido Union High School District, Escondido Chamber of Commerce, Escondido Education Foundation, and The Escondido Charitable Foundation. At the end of the day, observers said the parks all “sparkled.” Roundabouts? In Carlsbad?

Immigrants from the United Kingdom and other parts of the world may feel right at home if

The roundabouts, if approved, would be on Highway 101, part of a new list of conceptual designs for improving access to the beach in Carlsbad’s Terramar neighborhood just south of the Encina power plant.

“We have a lot of opportunities along our coastline to improve safety ... and create a better experience overall,” Assistant City Manager Gary Barberio said in a recent news release. Other suggestions for Terramar include wider sidewalks, more parking, permanent trails along the open bluff top across from the power plant, and perhaps seating and gathering areas.

The latest list of possibilities will be presented at a community meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Carlsbad Senior Center, 799 Pine Ave.

Cathy Miller, president of the Terramar Association, said residents agree that safety could be improved, but the idea of roundabouts is still new and could be a hard sell to residents unfamiliar with them.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Preparing for a Strong El Nino

Current forecasts are predicting a strong El Nino season this winter. The City’s Public Works Department has been busy behind the scenes preparing for the winter storm season, including removing debris from storm drains and strengthening road and park infrastructure before the expected rain hits. Internally, City staff is reviewing emergency procedures and coordinating between departments to prepare for a series of possible significant weather events. There is a potential for some street flooding which may occur in low ly-

ing areas of the City during very heavy rain storms - because the drainage systems may reach full capacity. When needed, City crews will post road closures if unsafe driving conditions exist. Keeping a few sandbags ready this winter may help ward off water if it approaches your home. Free empty sand bags are available at the Public Works facility during normal business hours. Residents can purchase fill materials at local home centers and building supply stores. Even though El Nino is always a question mark because of other climate variables, the City of Vista is preparing - just in case it hits hard this winter.

Malware and You. Part I

“Malware,” short for “malicious software,” is the generic name for programs that infect devices for purposes other than those of the legitimate user. This week we’ll discuss malware that is downloaded onto your desktop, notebook, tablet, or cell phone, from the Internet. This malware is of no benefit to the user but seeks instead to accomplish some purpose for the perpetrator. Various types of malware include viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware, scareware etc. Today we will start with the basic malware defense strategies. 1. Anti-virus/malware software. Whether you use a free Antivirus program (like the Avast or Avira we currently put on unprotected PCs that leave our shop) or a paid version like our favorites, Kaspersky, Panda and NOD 32, you must keep it

greatest U.S. presidents. His likeness is on Mount Rushmore alongside those of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.

On the night of Jan. 5, 1919, Roosevelt experienced breathing problems. He felt better after treatment from his physician and went to bed. Roosevelt died in his sleep at Sagamore Hill as a result of a blood clot detaching from a vein and traveling to his lungs. Upon receiving word of his death, his son Archibald telegraphed his siblings simply, "The old lion is dead." Woodrow Wilson's vice president, Thomas R. Marshall, summed up the situation succinctly: "Death had to take Roosevelt sleeping, for if he had been awake, there would have been a fight." Many of Roosevelt’s accomplishments, from the National Park Service, to the building of the Panama Canal, as well as a host of business and banking controls continue to the present, making him one of America’s most important figures in history. More History from Tom Morrow Next Week in The Paper!

2. Keep Your Operating System Current. With Windows Vista, 7 or 8, you must either enable the automatic update feature or run “Windows Updates” weekly. The Windows security patches will help to keep your system secure. Windows 10 will update automatically whether you like it or not and Windows XP has had no security updates since April of 2014.

3. Secure Your Network. Many PCs access files, printers, or the Internet via Wi-Fi. Make sure your passwords are strong. Never broadcast an open Wi-Fi connection. Don’t broadcast your SSID (the name of your Wi-Fi network). If you frequently have guests who use your Internet, provide a guest SSID that uses a different password.

Information Safe. Hackers will compile your information and personal data from account to account until they have enough to access your banking data or steal your identity. Be cautious on message boards and social media. Lock down all of your privacy settings, and avoid using your real name or identity on discussion boards. Use multiple passwords. Be very careful using the open Wi-Fi hot spots like Starbucks, McDonalds, the library, and airports. Use only sparingly and never to access personal or password protected sites. The bad guys are listening in. 6. Back Up Your Files. Any files that are important to you should be backed up. Backing them up

4. Think Before You Click. Avoid websites that provide pirated material. Do not open email attachments from unknown sources. Do not click on an unsolicited email links. Hover over any suspicious link before you click it to see where it’s taking you. If you download a file from the Internet, an email, a filesharing service or any FTP site (file transfer protocol), scan it before you run it. Your antivirus software should do it automatically, but make sure it is being done. 5.

on an “always connected” storage device like external or internal hard drives is not reliable back-up. Malware that infects your PC can infect a back-up drive if it is connected when the PC is attacked. The safest back up is a “cloud storage” service like Carbonite. Your files are safe and accessible, the cost is less than $60 a year and it is automatic. If you do use an external back-up, then back up frequently and disconnect when you’re finished. Don’t leave your back-up device connected.

These are basic simple practices everyone should follow. Next week we will discuss the kind of attack that none of these practices can prevent. Social Engineering exploits.
