Volume 50 - No. 47

By lyle e davis

Back in the late 1970's I worked at KFMB Radio in San Diego. I did the morning and afternoon traffic reports from a Cessna 172 and/or from the ground during inclement weather.

I also attended and participated in "I Love You San Diego" parties which the station hosted and promoted. I got to be something of a minor celebrity. Often, during my traffic reports I'd compose and recite "traffic poems." They were The Paper - 760.747.7119

always on the humorous side. Listeners seemed to like this bit of silliness. People actually wanted my autograph! I could never understand that. I was the same guy I always was . . . yet now I had somehow become popular and listeners were attracted to me . . . some of which were actually female! I was no more handsome, no more charming, maybe a little bit richer . . . . but I was still just lil ol' me. But now I had become a celebrity. I remember when Tom Selleck told the story of how he couldn't get a date when he was within the normal

population. Once he became a tv and movie star the women began chasing him. Amazing!

From time to time I'd get additional assignments. Such was the case on the following: There were many instances when my career in the broadcast media got me involved in an interesting but sometimes uncomfortable experience.

There was, in the late 1970's, a political flap wherein the courts had

ruled that many prisoners had to be released because the jails were so crowded that to retain that many prisoners in jail apparently constituted cruel and inhuman punishment. Sheriff John Duffy, (since deceased) in a brilliant public relations move, brought the limelight on the problem (and pressure on the county board of supervisors to fund a new jail) by inviting a number of community leaders and media people to spend a weekend in the county jail. The deal was. . .we would be

booked just as though we were regular prisoners (the only exception was we did not have to submit to a body search [where they have you strip and examine every minute area of your body]); we would have a regular physical examination, be issued jail clothing (although ours had the words "jail kitchen”..[I believe]" stenciled on the back so that we were readily identifiable; we would all be confined in one "tank" [you don't call them cells. . they are tanks]. We had two "trusties" assigned to us as bodyguards. (We learned later that the "trusties" were actually big, burly sheriff's deputies disguised as inmates).

While being booked my attention was drawn to a very handsome young man who was being booked. I remember thinking at the time that he was handsome enough that he could well have been a tv or movie star. The other (real) inmates seemed to be deferring to him. He apparently was someone of import within the jail population. I asked a few questions and found out that the San Diego police had just arrested him that afternoon. He had committed a murder in Montreal, Canada while holding up a jewelry store!

After receiving our physicals we were marched, single file, to our tank. One marches in the San Diego jail in a continuous line following a

Our visit to the jail was carefully coordinated and a high level of secrecy was involved (or so we were told and we thought). The fact is, you don't have many secrets in jail. As we were being led to our tank, single file, the inmates in the other tanks would holler and whistle and jeer and hoot. It was almost like having to run a gauntlet. "Hey, cutie," they would yell, "I want you"! Each of us pretended as though we didn't hear the inmates but each of us knew that the inmates knew. . .we had heard; and each of us, to a man, hoped that we weren't "the cutie." We stared straight ahead and tried to ignore the taunts. "Come on into my tank, we'll show you what jail life is really like"!! I had been in the jungles of Vietnam among snakes and leeches and punji sticks; I had gotten caught in mortar attacks; I had been shot at, had gotten in the middle of firefights. . but was never as frightened as I was that weekend in the San Diego County Jail! What is worse, we were terribly frightened in spite of knowing that we would be released at 6pm on Sunday night! We made it to our tank and sat around talking with one another. We were in an isolated part of the

They continue on towards Buckingham Palace waving to the thousands of cheering Britons; all is going well. Suddenly, the right rear horse lets fly with the most horrendous earth-shattering fart ever heard in the British Empire. The fart shakes the coach. The smell is atrocious!

jail so were relatively safe from continued taunts of the other inmates. It was a large tank, with cots for about 20 people. There was a sliding door that connected to a day room and yet another sliding door connecting to the rest rooms and showers. There were no doors on the showers or commodes. Privacy is almost unheard of in a jail. Each of the sliding doors were made of bars. It is true what they say about jails. The clanging noise of shutting doors going all day and all night can drive you up a wall. The shouting and screaming of prisoners can do the same. I remember our tank had been specially spruced up. We were, after all, community leaders and members of the media. I thought of this with a smile on my face as I watched a cockroach crawl up the wall of our freshly scrubbed tank.

We had just fallen asleep, or so it seemed, when a clanging noise and shouting broke out. We opened our eyes to see several deputy sheriffs in our tank with batons, ordering us to one side of the room. They then pulled our mattresses off the beds, pulled the sheets and pillowcases apart, dumped them on the floor. They then told us to make our beds and go back to bed, after searching us. We had just been "rousted". Rousting is a periodic total inspection of tanks on a random basis to ensure that inmates aren't accumulating contraband in the form of drugs, alcohol, weapons, etc. We were certainly getting a realistic look at jail. We had just managed to get back to sleep when it was time to get up (about 5:30am). Food was brought to us. Very starchy. Very unappetizing. Very filling. We had to account for every tray, every cup, every knife, fork, spoon. We were given a razor to use; we were allowed to brush our teeth, to do all of the things one does in the morning upon arising. One at a time. In full public view.

I was surprised when she walked across the street and up my driveway.

She lives right across the street.

I watched as she got home from work this evening.

She knocked on my door... I rushed to open it.

She looks at me, and says, "I just got home, and I am so horny! I have this strong urge to have a good time, get drunk, and make love all night long! Are you busy tonight?"

I immediately replied, "Nope, I'm free... I have no plans at all!" Then she said, "Good! In that case, could you watch my dog?"

Bell Gardens and The Bell Behind the Taco - The sign on Cole Grade Road is freshly-painted, the grounds are well maintained, and pumpkins are ready to harvest. But it's been 17 years since the gates were shut on Bell Gardens, Valley Center's onetime public attraction that attracted thousands of visitors each year, many of whom met the man behind the bell and the taco bearing his name: Glen W. Bell, Jr. Yet, tourists and locals alike continue to ask "whatever happened to Bell Gardens?" It's a rare week that the question is not asked by someone visiting, calling or emailing the Valley Center History Museum. The Valley Center Historical Society, which maintains an archive on the property, often called Bell Gardens an "agricultur-

Normally, an inmate would then while away the day sitting on his backside shooting the breeze; maybe a trip to the library, possibly to the gym or weight lifting room. But mostly just sitting and talking. Or sleeping. We, (because we were big shots) were taken on a tour of the jail. We got to see the library and the gym. (Now I understand why so many inmates are big and burly, muscular guys. They can spend hours in weight training. They don't have anything else to do). At one point we were shown the portion of the jail where the homosexuals and transvestites were kept. (They are kept separate because while it might appear a homosexual would be in hog heaven in a tank full of men all he would have to do is turn one proposition down and he'd be dead or you'd have a full scale riot on your hands).

There was another section where police and/or attorneys who had been arrested would be kept isolated from the regular population; yet another area where child molesters were kept (they are dead meat in any prison population). On one occasion, as we were being shepherded through an area, I noticed a very attractive Oriental girl looking at me and giving me a smile and a very definite "come hither" look; next to her was an only moderately attractive redheaded gal.

al theme park." Developed in 1993, Bell Gardens was a 115-acre idyllic farm, educational resource, and picnic grounds where the public was invited, free of charge, to spend the day in one of the most unique environments in the country. Bell Gardens was the retirement dream of Glen Bell, the founder of Taco Bell. Visitors were invited to walk through Ghost Canyon, a walking trail set amidst aging gnarled oaks, take a ride aboard an open-air 80passenger miniature train that circled the park and passed alongside a man-made lake, watch adobe bricks being made from red clay soil, walk through a 1,000 square foot maze set amidst a corn field, or simply enjoy the grounds of the rural landscape.

During the year, 64 different kinds of produce were grown on the property, much of it for sale at a farm stand. Upwards of 50,000 school kids would visit the unique outdoor classroom to learn about agriculture and sustainable farming. In some years, overall attendance was estimated at 100,000. Visitors would often encounter Bell himself, riding through the farm on his golf cart, seemingly enjoying the sights as much as the guests, even though he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. He was honored by the community one May when he was chosen Grand Marshal of the annual Valley Center Western Days parade. The closed sign at Bell Gardens was posted in 2003 and Bell died in

however, was giving me a rather lusty look. I thought to myself. . . ."by golly, lyle, you've still got it!"

Then it hit me. There were no women in this jail!! These "sexy gals" were actually men! Transvestites. "Yeah, lyle, you old fox. . you still got it, all right!"

(Women inmates in San Diego are kept in Las Colinas, a separate detention facility near Lakeside). Later, we returned to our tank and talked. One of us was a Superior Court judge. I'm ashamed of myself that I can't remember his name other than it was "Bob." I remember how impressed I was with him in that here was a judge who makes probably $58,000 per year, [in 1978 dollars © probably $150,000 or more today; editor] carries a great deal of honor and prestige, was in no way required to do what he was doing yet here he was, as a volunteer, spending one of his weekends in a jail cell so he could better understand the conditions that he might be sentencing his fellow man to. He also told some interesting stories. Like about how he had heard a number of cases involving homosexual rape that occurs so frequently in jails. He told us of how we are brought up from the day we are youngsters to learn to get along with our fellow man, to be helpful and caring and nurturing, to trust our fellow man. "Forget that crap." he said, "when you enter a jail population. It'll get you killed, at worst, probably raped at least". Typically, he told us, a "fish" (new inmate -

2010 at age 86. Inside the History Museum, a large mural is on exhibit as a permanent reminder of the onetime agricultural theme park. It was painted by Jimmy Boulos.

Glen Bell was the Bell in Taco Bell and Bell Gardens in Valley Center. This copy of the book at the History Museum is autographed by Bell and the author. Bell was a regular visitor to the shop in Escondido.

After Bell and his family moved to north county in 1974, he would frequently visit the Escondido Taco Bell which he said was his favorite. It was owned by longtime friend and franchisee Robert St. John and his wife Diane who, as of 2017, owned 23 Taco Bell stores and maintain headquarters in Escondido.

like a virgin) enters a tank. One or more of the inmates will offer him a cigarette, candy, conversation, building a friendship and trust. At some point in time the "con" will maneuver the "fish" into a comfortable position sitting on the floor by the bed (and incidentally, out of line of sight of any guards) and then show a weapon and require the "fish" to submit to sexual acts or be raped or be killed. One way or another such an unsuspecting "fish" is usually raped. It isn't over. Once that happens the "fish" becomes the "property" of the con. The "fish" is then bartered or rented or sold. A pack of cigarettes for an hour's pleasure with the fish. He is passed around like a cherry pie. If the fish complains or tells, he will be killed. Life is like that in a jail. It is worse in a prison. One of us, I believe his name was Luz, (this happened back in about 1978 so I might be wrong on his name) was an ex-con from prison. He was now a consultant to one of the County Supervisors (at that time our Supervisor was Paul Eckert) and was also involved in a Halfway House Project for ex-cons. He was there as the Supervisor Eckert’s representative.

He told us when he was sent to prison when just a young man, the first thing he did was ask who was the biggest, baddest s.o.b. in the prison. It was a big black guy about 6'4". Luz walked up to him and introduced himself. . .. "I hear you're the biggest, baddest dude in

the pen". The black man smiled and allowed as how he was. Luz doubled up his fist and hit him as hard as he could right in the crotch! He knew he was going to get the tar beat out of him; but he also knew that he had made a statement. Luz was one inmate that you didn't mess with. He'd fight back. Once you establish that then the cons leave you alone. They don't want to get in any more trouble. They are predators. They prey on the weak (or the civilized).

I guess the moral of all this is. . .if, God forbid, you ver find yourself in jail, put all of your social graces behind you. Trust no one. Keep your own counsel. Let it be known that you won't put up with any crap. (Most of us, I assume, if we were ever to be put in the slammer, would be there for a weekend or for one night, probably as a result of DUI (driving under the influence). A weekend doesn't sound like very long. Try it in jail once. A night is forever. Your bunk mates are not terribly clean or congenial). Sunday was more of the same. We learned that we were to be released early so I asked permission to call the radio and tv station that I worked for (KFMB Radio and KFMB-TV) so as to let them know we were "coming out" early and they could have their crews on hand. While waiting for the phone the deputies lead a not unattractive

The Paper Fatal Traffic Collison on Palomar Airport Road

On November 14, at 10:40 a.m. the City of Carlsbad Police Department was called to Palomar Airport Road and Paseo Del Norte due to a traffic collision. When Officers arrived on scene it was determined the collision occurred at Palomar Airport Road over the I-5 freeway. On arrival, officers found the driver of a black Chevrolet pick-up had been involved in a single vehicle collision.

The vehicle had one juvenile passenger and one female adult passenger.

Tragically the driver, a 55-year-old male from Oceanside, died at the scene. The juvenile and female passenger were uninjured. The preliminary investigation shows that alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision, but the investigation is still underway. Palomar Airport Road at the I-5 freeway was closed for an extended period of time as officers investigated the cause of the collision. Election Results

•••• Several months ago I bumped into former Escondido City Councilman Dick Daniels and former City Attorney and, later, City Manager, Jeff Epp. We were at the legendary Happy Hour at The Brigantine and chatted about many things, among them Escondido’s city government. Jeff Epp was to make what I thought was a rather profound statement.

I had mentioned how impressed I was with the job Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara was doing. “He’s a Democrat in what has been long viewed as “Republican Country” but I think he’s doing a pretty good job.” And it was then that Jeff Epp made

(Epp, though formally retired as city manager is staying on as interim city manager until a new one is hired). Mayor Mac is becoming very well known for his “Happy Hour” gatherings on Fridays in Escondido, an invitation only gathering of what I affectionally refer to as “the rogues gallery.” A diverse, amiable group that gets together over drinks and snacks to chat, kibbitz, debate, and laugh.

caught the slimy s.o.b.'s the same day. He had been convicted of murder, appealed, appeal denied, appealed again; he was back in San Diego from the penitentiary while waiting for his appeal to be heard. He was on death row, scheduled to be executed. (Robert Alton Harris was later executed April 21, 1992 in the gas chamber at San Quentin State Prison – the first execution in California in 25 years.)

He was no more than 6 feet away from me. I wanted to say something to him; to tell him what I thought of him. You don't do that. In jail. In a courtroom. You want to. But you don't. He was en route to the visitors lounge to visit with his parents or attorneys or someone. I could care less. I hate the man. While in jail he also raped another prisoner. Went to court. Found guilty of that, as well. A real prince of a guy.

Finally, 6pm rolled around and we changed back into our civilian clothes. We even had an "exit interview" with real sociologists to determine how we were going to conduct our lives in the future and how we were going to try and "improve." It was terribly realistic. It was terribly frightening. . .the whole experience. It was an experience I would never again want to go through, but one that I'm glad I experienced. I think every cop and judge should be required to undergo a similar experience. I think they both would think twice about arbitrarily sentencing someone to a night or a weekend in the "tank"; at

the same time, they would not be at all reluctant about putting someone in there that belonged there.

Well, I trust I haven't offended your more sensitive nature. It's not a pretty story, I know. It is, in fact, an offensive story in areas. But it is true. Oh, remember how I mentioned the late John Duffy, former San Diego County Sheriff, and how he was a master at public relations. Well, after this story hit the tv stations, radio, and newspapers, guess what? The County Board of Supervisors reconsidered their position and gave Sheriff Duffy the budget of $110 million he had requested to upgrade the jail facilities.

During his 20 sometimes stormy years,(from 1971-1991) Duffy was blunt, straight talking, and sometimes controversial but he sure knew how to work a story and get maximum benefit. He was one helluva Sheriff. And one helluva PR guy as well.

In September of 1992 former Sheriff Duffy accepted an invitation from the U.S. Justice Department to serve as a consultant and principal advisor to El Salvador in building a police force under the accords that ended El Salvador's 12-year-old civil war.

Request for Proposal for Downtown Safety/Ambassador Services - MainStreet Oceanside (MSO) is the owners association responsible for the Downtown Oceanside Property and Business Improvement District (DTOPBID), also known as the Clean and Safe Program. The DTOPBID was established on August 7, 2019, by a ballot proceeding in accordance with California Property and Business Improvement District Law of 1994. It was developed by a growing coalition of property owners in cooperation with MSO. The DTOPBID is a special benefit assessment district proposed to improve and convey special benefits to properties located within the PBID boundaries. The PBID boundaries map is available at oceansidepbid.com. The PBID will provide enhanced maintenance and public safety services above and beyond those provided by the City of Oceanside.

New Legislative Session

The Legislature will open on December 7th with the swearing in of all members and start the 2021-2022 session. Though a few bills are likely to introduced, the day is largely ceremonial, and the new session will begin in earnest on January 6th. Next year my priorities will continue to be on the needs of this region. We must ensure that we have sufficient resources and response to disasters like COVID and prevention of wildfires, that we have a secure, reliable water supply for people and agriculture alike, that our education system is funded with operational certainty for students and parents, that people can access health care easier, and that our increasingly overcrowded highways are modernized and upgraded.

The pandemic’s economic fallout has been catastrophic for thousands of people and for California’s overall economy. With businesses closing and thousands losing their jobs it is critical the state fixes the EDD, DMV and other failures. With that in mind, I will support policies that help small businesses and job creation to get the economy moving again. Needless to say, a faltering economy results in fewer tax dollars. Meeting the responsibilities of government will be extremely challenging with the tight state budget. But we must take a close look at our priorities to put necessities above desires.

In Sacramento, we may disagree on many issues, but there is much we agree on. Healthcare, education, wildfires, water and power infrastructure, and our economic distress – none of these is political which creates the need for bi-partisan solutions. As the new session begins, I will continue to work with my colleagues from both parties as we tackle the enormous challenges facing California. I am humbled by the support I received from the district November 3rd, and I look forward to continuing to serve you in Sacramento. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

Purple Haze

Seven months ago, San Diegans were asked to flatten the curve, protect our most vulnerable and make sure we had enough personal protection equipment available. Seven months later, our curve has flattened, we are protecting our most vulnerable and we have more than enough personal protection equipment.

While the people and business owners of San Diego have done everything that’s been asked of them, they’re being punished. With the state putting us back into the most restrictive “purple” tier, many businesses will be closing their doors for good. Restaurants will once again be forced to only provide service outside, and gyms and places of worship can’t operate indoors.

The State of California has given us impossible guidelines and we, the people of San Diego, are being punished. These closures will add to the more than 200,000 San Diegans out of work, it will add to the growing number of businesses shutting their doors permanently, and it will add to the growing mental health crisis in our region.

If we’ve learned anything over the past seven months it’s that this shotgun approach of closing all businesses doesn’t work. Instead, we need to look at where people are getting sick and approach it will a scalpel. If there are outbreaks at certain businesses, then we can and should address the issues. Shutting down an entire industry goes too far.

Now more than ever, we need business owners and their employees to step up. The State needs to hear your stories, the struggles you’re going through. We the people have the power to influence a better, more balanced approach, and we need to use that power before it’s too late.

But wait! There’s More!

Dear Mr. Lyle E. Davis, owner and publisher of The Paper. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for publishing "The Day the Music Died" front cover story by Friedrich Gomez in your weekly news magazine The Paper (Nov. 12, 2020). It was a historical masterpiece of storytelling.

I was 14 years old at the time (I'm now 75) and we used to dance our socks off to their music in Newark, New Jersey. You may not remember but the slang we used back then was "cutting the rug" when referring to dancing! And you were a "cool cat" if you watched American Bandstand with host Dick Clark who was born in Mount Vernon, New York (just 32 miles north of where we lived.) The story you published was the most powerful and touching tributes I've ever read. It was like a beautiful literary bouquet that Friedrich Gomez threw to these three young boys Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens.

Everyone is talking about the cover story and we're all saving several copies, one to read and the rest for our Hope Chest (another term you may never have heard). Mr. Davis, please do all of us a big favor out here in "Readership Land" and give Friedrich Gomez a big, big hug from all of us. He keeps America Great and is the "Cat's Meow" as my father used to say back when. Mr. Davis, some of our dear friends informed us that they spotted you eating lunch on Sunday, October 25 at Jovita's Tamales restaurant on Grand Avenue here in Escondido. Since you often give restaurant reviews in your "Man About Town" column, can you tell us about this restaurant and what you recommend there? Editor’s Note: The tamales from Jovitas were so tasty I wanted to jump up and down, clap my hands and say, “23-Skidoo,” and “Oh, You Kid!” They were “The Cat’s Pajamas!” (Yes, we’ll go back! Very good food and service).

In the meantime, the next time we see Friedrich Gomez I think I'm going to kidnap him, he is that adorable to all of us. My husband and I say God bless you Mr. Lyle E. Davis for your wonderful weekly news magazine. It is the only publication in San Diego County that prints full length stories like this. From Arlene Anne Tibbets and our many friends from Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Escondido (and

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

12. When he joined my ship, this Officer was something of a granny; since then he has aged considerably.

13. This Medical Officer has used my ship to carry his genitals from port to port, and my officers to carry him from bar to bar. 14. This Officer reminds me very much of a gyroscope, always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere. 15. Since my last report he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig.

16. She sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them. 17. He has the wisdom of youth, and the energy of old age.

18. This Officer should go far, and the sooner he starts, the better.

The 10th of a Second Nightmare

A tenth of a second during one of history’s most dramatic moments kept him awake at night and often seemed like a lifetime to Ralph H. Metcalfe.

Metcalfe was four-times elected Chicago alderman (city council); an eight-year serving U.S. Congressman; a Legion of Merit medal-holder as a U.S. Army 1st lieutenant during World War II, and a successful college coach. But it was a 10.4-second space of time in his life that haunted Metcalfe more than anything. He ran one-tenth of a second behind Jesse Owens in the world famous 100-meter dash at the 1936 Berlin Olympics as Adolf Hitler looked on in shock.

19. In my opinion this pilot should not be authorised to fly below 250 feet.

20. The only ship I would recommend for this man is citizenship. 21. Couldn't organise a woodpecker's picnic in Sherwood Forest .

22. Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap.

23. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

24. Gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming. 25. Has two brains; one is lost and the other is out looking for it.

26. If he were any more stupid, he'd have to be watered twice a week. 27. Got into the gene pool while the lifeguard wasn't watching.

28. If you stand close enough to him, you can hear the ocean. 29. It's hard to believe that he beat 1,000,000 other sperm. 30. A room temperature IQ.

31. Got a full 6-pack, but lacks the plastic thingy to hold it all together.

32. A gross ignoramus, 143 times worse than an ordinary ignoramus.

33. He has a photographic memory but has the lens cover glued on. 34. He has been working with glue too long.

35. When his IQ reaches 50, he should sell.

He graduated from Marquette University in 1936, and after the Olympics that year, he went on for a master’s degree at the University of Southern California. He taught political science and coached track at Xavier University in New Orleans before joining the Army during World War II.

In 1955, Metcalfe won the first of four elections as an alderman representing the South Side of Chicago. As an alderman, he broke ranks with Mayor Richard Daly after a series of police brutality incidents.

In 1970, he was easily elected as a Democrat to the U.S. Congress and was a co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus in 1971.

But, no doubt, it was that eye-blink of a second that kept him awake at night. Jesse Owens won a gold medal and equaled a world record that summer in Berlin running the 100-meter dash at 10.3 seconds. Metcalfe had equaled that time four years earlier. But, on that summer day in 1936, Metcalfe was right behind Owens for the silver medal at 10.4 seconds. Ironically, Metcalfe broke or equaled world records 16 times at various distance track events, however only five of them were ever officially ratified by the international governing body, the International American Athletic Foundation (IAAF).

Metcalfe won four Olympic medals during the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles. He was regarded as the

world’s fastest human in 1934 and 1935 after running at the world record time of 10.3 seconds. Metcalfe was convinced to the end of his life that the 100-meter event in 1932 should have been awarded as a dead-heat tie between him and Eddie Tolan. In all, Metcalfe won 16 national titles in track during his athletic career. "I have never been convinced I was defeated (during the 1932 Olympics),” Metcalfe often said. “It should have been a tie"

Film evidence and that of observers of the race seem to support Metcalfe's verdict. The AAU (American Athletic Union) later changed their rules to have the winner being the first athlete to cross the line not merely breast the tape. It was the latter that fellow sprinter Tolan was judged to have done first. The AAU went further and awarded the 1932 race as a tie but the International Olympic Committee has never agreed to this change. Additionally, even though credited with same time as Tolan, 10.3 seconds, a time that equaled the then world record, Metcalfe's time was never ratified as a world record. The next year at the Berlin Olympics, Owens ran the 100 in 10.3 and Metcalfe a tenth of a second behind him. At Berlin, He also matched the 200-meter world record of 20.6 seconds. He completed the 1932 intercollegiate season by winning the first of three NCAA championships, in both the 100- and 200yard events. Later that summer Metcalfe competed in the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles, racing to virtual tie with Eddie Tolan in the 100 meters. After an exhaustive review, officials awarded the gold medal to Tolan and silver medal to Metcalfe. The Marquette sprinter also earned a bronze medal in the 200 meters at Los Angeles. He ran with Owens, Foy Draper, and Frank Wykoff in the 440-meter relay winning a gold medal. Owens and Metcalfe became life-long friends.

Despite coming in second in Berlin, Metcalfe had much to be proud. He became the first man to win the NCAA 200-meter title three times consecutively. Metcalfe died in Chicago on Oct. 10, 1978 of an apparent heart attack during a fifth-term reelection campaign to Congress. The downtown Chicago federal office building was named in his honor upon its completion in 1991.

While he focused on the dead-heat 100 he ran with Tolan, that tenth of a second loss to Owens never seemed to bother him – that is until the middle of the night as he pondered those days of glory. Young Metcalfe also was an accomplished student and a campus leader. In 1933 he was inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the elite Jesuit academic honor society. Metcalfe was also elected president of the Marquette University senior class. He graduated cum laude in 1936.

During his career in track Metcalfe equaled or bettered 13 world records. That enough life-time accomplishments to keep anyone awake at night.

standing common-sense leadership of the city.

I”m sure there will be issues that come up with which we, as a weekly newspaper, will disagree with Hizzoner . . that’s the nature of a newspaper . . to observe and report on those observations. But if and when that happens we feel comfortable in being able to critique and/or discuss our differences.

Mayor Mac.

He’s a keeper.

••••• At long last the election is over and we can now relax and get to know our new legislators . . be they incumbents or rookies.

Why would anyone want to take on the duties of a legislator? Why would anyone want to be in the receving end of constant complaints and criticism of you and the job you are doing, no matter how diligently and faithfully you work on issues and projects?

I suspect it’s a strong sense of serving the community, be it local, county, statewide, or national. Some are in the political world because they want to achieve power and/or wealth, or influence . . or all of the above . . but the bulk of our legislators, I believe, came into this volatile world with a mission of making the world a better place

Ideas for Thanking Your Family

It’s almost Thanksgiving. And although 2020 may have been a difficult year for you, as it has been for many people, you can probably still find things for which you can be thankful – such as your family. How can you show your appreciation for your loved ones? Here are a few suggestions:

Invest in your children’s future. If you have young children – or even grandchildren – one of the greatest gifts you can give them is the gift of education. You may want to consider contributing to a higher education funding vehicle.

Be generous. Do you have older children, just starting out in life? If so, they could well use a financial gift to help pay off student loans, buy a car or even make a down payment on a home. You can give up to

than when they found it. And that is laudable . . for legislating is often a thankless job.

I have known legislators who were in that world because they wanted to serve and I have known legislators who were in that world for the power, prestige and wealth opportunities.

I prefer the former . . and they are far larger in number than the latter.

Comes time now to let the newly elected legislators learn their job, to do their job, and to earn our trust for the next election cycle. Some will earn that trust, some will let us down. And that earned trust, or lack thereof, will be reflected in the next election cycle.

It is a stage of life that we as voters have to go through. Same with the legislators. A rite of passage, so to speak.

There has been a lot of rancor and division during this past election cycle. We, as a nation, as a local community, all need to put our differences aside and come together for the betterment of our world. We have more than enough fear and distrust because of the pandemic. We don’t need anymore. What we do need is to re-learn the loving of our fellow man and our community. We need to learn what many of us learned in kindergarten, We need to learn to play nice.

$15,000 per year, per recipient, without incurring gift taxes. Of course, you don’t have to give cash – you might want to consider presenting your children with shares of stock in companies they like.

Review your insurance coverage. If you weren’t around, it would leave some gaping holes – financial and otherwise – in the lives of your family members. That’s why it’s essential you maintain adequate life insurance. Your employer might offer a group plan, but it may not be sufficient to meet your needs. There’s no magic formula for determining the right amount of coverage, so you’ll have to consider a variety of factors: your age, spouse’s income, number of children and so on. Also, you may want to consider disability insurance – if you were unable to work for a while, it could cause a real problem for your family’s finances. Preserve your financial independence. When your children are young, you take care of them. But you certainly don’t want them to have to do the same for you – so it’s essential you maintain your financial independence throughout your life. You can do this in at least a couple of ways. First, con-

sider investing regularly in your 401(k), IRA and other retirement accounts. The greater your resources during your retirement years, the less you may ever need to count on your family. And second, you may want to protect yourself from the devastating costs of long-term care, such as an extended nursing home stay. A financial professional can suggest a strategy to help you cope with these expenses. Create an estate plan. To leave a legacy to your family, you don’t have to be wealthy – but you do need a comprehensive estate plan. You’ll have to think through a lot of questions, such as: Have I named beneficiaries for all my assets? How much do I want to leave

to each person? Do I need to go beyond a simple will to establish an arrangement such as a living trust? For help in answering all these issues, you’ll want to work with an attorney. By making these moves, you can show your loved ones, in a tangible way, how much you value them – and that can help you keep the spirit of Thanksgiving alive all year long.

Memories and Such . . .

Attn. Lyle E. Davis, Publisher. I have two statements to make.

First off, Friedrich Gomez is the most amazing writer and his latest entry "The Day the Music Died" that you published on Nov. 12, 2020 speaks volumes about his talents. It's almost redundant that he's so gifted and happens to be so cute, also! He's gorgeous!

My second statement is regarding your close friend Arie de Jong. Back in the early 1960's when I was a little girl, my parents used to have our milk delivered by the Hollandia Dairy trucks directly to our house in San Diego. Arie de Jong's family/relations ran the Hollandia Dairy operations and it was wonderful that the Hollandia dairyman would, personally, get out of his truck and deliver our milk directly inside our refrigerator!

love Mr. Tom Morrow's weekly column! Why wasn't I able to have history teachers like Mr. Morrow? My history teachers were all so boring!

Mr. Morrow is always so fascinating!

From the Maria Contreras-Hauser family, San Marcos/Vista. Yet Another Admirer . . .

Friedrich Gomez is more than a brilliant researcher. He's a top shelf story teller who breathes life into his prose and weaves a most profound literary experience for the reader!

He should be writing for a major magazine or newspaper! His latest triumph "The Day the Music Died" printed in The Paper was one of his best-ever! From the Patrick Flannigan Irish Clan, Oceanside, California.

My father used to always talk to the Hollandia delivery driver by the name of "Henk." Can you ask Mr. Arie de Jong if he recalls a Hollandia delivery driver by the name of Henk? The reason I ask is that my family became very close to Henk. Henk was probably in his 20s, slim, joyful, handsome, and always had a big smile on his face! As a little girl, he was my favorite person who always brought milk so that I could have my morning cereal. Please ask Mr. Arie de Jong whatever became of Henk.

Thank you Mr. Lyle E. Davis for establishing such a wonderful publication like The Paper. Aside from Friedrich Gomez we also

Ducks, like Cheeto (687793), are intelligent, social creatures who can learn tricks, play with toys and even give kisses! They'll quack you up with their fun antics. Due to their social nature, ducks must be paired with other ducks. Luckily, we have a number of fowl available for adoptions at our Escondido Campus if you want to adopt a pair. It is essential that you feed your ducks a complete and nutritious diet. We may think of them as bread-loving birds, but an excessive amount of bread is not suitable. Instead, switch out those carbs for some fruits, veggies and duck pellets. Once your ducks become family, it is up to you to protect them. Ducks have many predators in the wild, so they should have secure housing to keep them safe and stress-free!

Tips for Keeping Your Spirits Bright this Holiday Season Everything you hear and read about this year has been the Pandemic and it appears it will last for many more months - certainly past the upcoming special holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. This pandemic has had an adverse effect on almost everyone I know - either with loneliness, desperation, or a myriad of other ways that have disrupted our lives. For those of us who sometimes feel sadness or depression around the holidays anyway, it will be extra hard this year. If you are stressed out with other things going on in your life as

well, it will hit you even harder than most. Having just read an article that makes sense to me, I want to share some of the points that Dr. Lycka makes when he says "it needn't be that way."

"As we approach the holidays and all the expectations that come with them - it's worth remembering that in life you can't control everything," Lycka says. "That's true even in the best circumstances, but it's been especially true this year. It is not what happens to you, it's what you do with what happens." He then offers a few ways to lessen the pain of what happens to us through positive actionable steps:" "Practice the power of gratitude. "With all the negative things that 2020 brought - a pandemic, social unrest, a divisive election - it's easy to forget the many things you can be thankful for. Giving thanks for what we have and for the people in our lives, and realizing that this is something that will bring us joy changes your perception. It turns from having a 'me' focus to a focus on others. Even in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I can press pause, enter my own zone of silence and picture all I am grateful for, and this is my secret weapon to the daily stresses of the 21st century. We all need to press pause, reflect, and be grateful. Practice this regularly and experience a radical change in your life."

By the time you are reading this, it will be well past the 2020 election. Perhaps by now, an elected President has been named – maybe.

I am hopeful, post-election, that people of faith put into practice their moral and ethical principles. Before the election, this was not always the case. The politics of division seem prevalent in many circles. Speaking for myself, the Lord, not a politician or a political party is the answer to our problems. They will not be able to ultimately make all things right in the land. He can make a difference as we seek Him.

We should ask God to heal the wounds of the nation. It is the only thing that can help us avoid polarization and division with each other.

1. Focus on concepts like compassion, mercy, wisdom and discernment; they are values that should drive us. 2. Be good winners or losers. Avoid boasting or complaining. Disagree agreeably. 3. Remember your friends, neighbors, relatives and, yes, even your enemies are important, regardless of which party is in leadership.

Scripture says “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt (a seasoning and preservative!) so that you will know how to answer everyone." (Colossians 4:6)

We are challenged to “to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God”. We are taught to put the interests of others before ourselves. Let’s lead by example. ___________________________

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones

San Marcos claims top award for excellence in financial reporting

I want to congratulate and thank the incredible staff who helped earn the City of San Marcos a prestigious financial reporting award. The City of San Marcos was recently recognized with a Certificate of Achievement from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.

What makes this award so special? The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting and it represents a significant accomplishment by a government agency. Responsible financial accounting is a cornerstone of what makes the City of San Marcos successful in all that we do. Always remaining fiscally transparent is one way we aim to be open and honest about how the city moves forward with initiatives and projects. Our end goal is for our community members to always be in the know about how we continue to improve the city we love.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

The Vista Gift Card that Gives

We are well aware that small businesses are the lifeblood of the U.S. economy, and this is especially true in Vista. The City continues to research and implement innovative approaches aimed at helping restore the vitality of small local businesses while offering special deals to customers. In October, the City and Vista Chamber introduced an electronic gift card program, called “Vista Bucks”. Shoppers can purchase gifts cards from a list of restaurants, breweries, retailers, and services and use them online or at the business. The Vista Bucks is a universal card that can be used at any participating Vista location and it’s a a key program we’re launching during the critical holiday season. It’s a simple, yet effective way to join efforts with our residents to support these vital businesses in our community. Check the website, VistaIsOpen.com, for more information about the program.

Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss

The election is now behind us. Voting is important, but now we need to “do”.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara

The time and effort you put into making your city stronger and more prosperous will make a huge difference in the lives of others.

Greetings Escondido,

As I write this article, I just found out that we are going back to purple status. And as you know that is the most restrictive tier. I have to admit I’m disappointed. I think we’ve been very diligent in maintaining social distancing, washing our hands, being careful etc. I’m probably not alone in this observation and probably like many, very puzzled why our actions are not working. It makes me wonder if we are doing the right thing, or if what we can do is really only marginally effective. I’m no expert, I’m simply sharing my frustration and I’m not second guessing the experts who I believe are trying to do their best for us. So what can we do. We can certainly recommit to the actions that are already in place, but I also think we can do one more thing. The folks who are most affected by this is our local small businesses. They are having a tough go right now. We need to support them. I’m asking that before you buy something, you ask yourself if there is a local business that sells it and if so consider using them and not on-line or delivery medium. Let’s take care of our friends and neighbors. Thank you!

We need to start at the local level, building a bottom-up revolution that amplifies local actions so that they inspire others to do similar things. We can spend the next four years arguing about the next national contest, something that each of us individually has little chance to influence. Or, we can shift the ground in this country by demonstrating a different way of doing things, working together with people in each of our cities and with others across the entire nation. Let’s keep our ideals and our vision for a better America while we do what we can to make each of our communities a stronger and more prosperous place.

Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac

Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

"Indulge in self-compassion. "Showing compassion for others is wonderful, but it's also important to show yourself compassion if you feel you failed to meet other people's holiday expectations, or if world events cause you more worries than you can handle. Self-compassion is the practice of noticing what you're feeling and remembering that you're human and therefore fallible, just like everyone else. It's about treating yourself with the same kindness you would give to a beloved friend. Unfortunately, few of us have been trained to respond to ourselves in this way. Much more often, our response is to beat ourselves up when we stumble. But research has shown - and your own experience may echo - that self-flagellation is counterproductive." "Make an effort to forgive. Holidays are a time when grudges can become magnified. If that's the

case for you it's time to put any pain you still feel behind you and consider forgiveness. It won't just make the holidays better, but your life as well. When we refuse to forgive and instead indulge in thought or acts of revenge, retaliation, and hate, we keep the cycle going and going. I once read that forgiveness does not mean you have to break bread with the transgressor. What it does mean for you, in the most positive sense, is when you wish them well you also give yourself peace."

"Finally, this holiday season would be a great time to begin practicing spontaneous acts of kindness. Have you ever noticed how good it feels to say or do something kind for someone else? Performing random, spontaneous acts of kindness has been shown to boost selfimage, lead us to perceive others more compassionately, promote a greater sense of connection with others, and feel grateful for our good fortune. We could all use a little kindness as 2020 draws to a

San Marcos to sell off “Vision’s” inventory consisting of hundreds of complete and partially complete computers. We dropped the “outlet” from the name when the sale was complete later in the year and by the end of 1995, Nome and I had decided to buy the owners out and keep “The Computer Factory” alive.

Are we really a Computer Factory?

Heck yeah. We build computers and we do repairs and upgrades, so we are a “Factory.” Twenty five years ago we opened our doors as “The Computer Factory Outlet.” I was Operations Vice President of Vision Technologies, a large computer manufacturer located in Vista. Nome was my right hand “man.” When we began negotiations to sell the company to an Asian conglomerate, we realized that they wanted “Vision” for its name and distribution channels and not the product inventory. We set up the “Computer Factory Outlet” in

Over the years the computer industry has changed. In the early days there was a computer store on nearly every block. As PCs became “commodity” products dominated by large Asian manufacturers and sold by distributors and mass merchandisers, the chain stores and independents began to disappear. For the past several years we have been able to win the Union Tribune’s annual readers poll as “Best Computer Store” in North County without even trying. Today we are the largest independent PC shop in Southern California and perhaps the oldest.

Only the Bold, the Best, and the Brightest, read The Paper

Editor’s Note: Recently, we received yet another note from a contented reader. He was in between trips but asked that we relay his thoughts and feelings to you, our reader.

He, too, has been a long time reader and claims the reason is because it makes him a more rounded person. He collects jokes from the Chuckles Column and is a hit at the parties he attends, usually after conquering a village or town . . . No wonder he is so bold!

First, I discovered America. Then, I discovered The Paper!

Ever since I can remember I’ve had the burning desire to discover new places, new adventures. Because of this, I set out to discover a new country . . . and I was successful. I even ventured inland a great many miles where I discovered a place I called Minnesota. “This,” I thought, “would be a great place for Scandinavians.” So I headed back to Norway to recruit settlers. While I was gone, some clown named Columbus claimed he discovered America. Life ain’t fair. Except life also gives us The Paper.

ADMINISTER ESTATE

OF EMANUEL V. CARUANA

Case No. 37-2020-00034567-PR-PL-CTL

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will

or estate or both, of EMANUEL V. CARUANA, VICTOR

CARUANA. A petition for probate has been filed by

GAIL SPARHAWK in the Superior Court of California,

County of San Diego, 1100 Union St., San Diego, Ca., 92101, Central Courthouse - Probate Division. The

Petition for Probate requests that GAIL SPARHAWK, be

appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

(This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the

personal representative will be required to give notice to

interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed actions.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested per-

son files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows:

Know What? You could own this space. It’d be all yours. And over 20,000 readers each week would be able to read about what a nice person you are, and what a nice business you have. It’d be a nice little investment. Call us. We’ll talk. 747.7119
