Volume 46 - No. 46

by Friedrich Gomez

Johnny Carson once said, “Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often.”

Like Carson, comedian and television host, Stephen Colbert, isn’t afraid to tell the truth about anything, earning him the title as “America’s most fearless purveyor of ‘truthiness.” Like Johnny Carson, Stephen Colbert has his own views on the Thanksgiving tradition: “Thanksgiving is a magical time of year when families across the country join together to raise America’s obesity statistics. Personally, I love Thanksgiving traditions: watching football, making pumpkin pie, and saying the magic phrase that sends your aunt storming out of the dining room to sit in her car.” Famous American comedian, Lewis Black, insists that humor and laughter can carry us through these trying times when families are brought together to eat turkey once a year. Black promises that laughter is the best medicine: “To not only survive this month of consumption, but to embrace it without losing your mind!”

Thanksgiving can be extremely stressful, just ask clinical psychologist, Dr. Kenneth Waldman, who says: “Anxiety during the Thanksgiving season usually occurs because people are confronted with seeing family members again; often times these bring back negative memories from childhood. Most of my new clients come right after the Thanksgiving holidays.” It doesn’t help that the Thanksgiving season is among the top 5 busiest times for alcoholic consumption.

After a few drinks, people around the Thanksgiving Day table sometimes feel uninhibited to the point of venting pent-up feelings and emotions that have accumulated down through the years. Comedian, Owen Benjamin, makes light of the situation in his standup routine which releases tension and allows us to laugh through those difficult times.

jokes, “None of our families resemble a Norman Rockwell painting. None of us have completely ‘functional’ families. You eat, drink, then you let out all the stress from throughout the years. Then, before you know it, the gun comes out and you’re running for your life!”

Let’s face it. We Americans are a tough lot, tough enough to take it on the chin by ridiculing ourselves, our customs, and our holiday pratfalls, such as this gem: “When we asked our 6year-old daughter to say grace at last year’s Thanksgiving dinner

table she said, ‘Oh, I can’t. I dunno what to say.’ That’s when our neighbor said, ‘Oh, honey. Just repeat what you’ve heard your mommy say.’ That’s when our precious daughter did just that. For grace, she bowed her little head in prayer and simply repeated her mommy’s words earlier in the day: ‘What the hell was I thinking when I invited all these damned people for Thanksgiving?!’” Surviving Thanksgiving and the ensuing holiday season can be a most daunting challenge. Make no mistake, a lot of people crack

under the strain. So humor often relieves family tension, anxiety, and the self-induced guilt of over-eating. As one comedian phrased it, “The Thanksgiving meal isn’t over when I’m full. The meal is over when I hate myself!” Television’s Jay Leno puts it in a similar but slightly different perspective: “You can tell you ate too much for Thanksgiving when you have to let your bathrobe out.” It comes as a big surprise to many Americans (including

myself), that Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in over 9 different countries, on different days of the year, but for similar reasons as our own. For example, Canada’s Thanksgiving observance is actually older than America’s version. However, over time the Canadian holiday adopted many of our American traditions from American colonists who remained loyal to the British Crown and relocated to Canada. The Canadian Thanksgiving is held on the second Monday in October (but is not a public holiday in every province).

Canadian comedian, Ian Bagg, simply says: “Canadian Thanksgiving is just basically – heya, we got the crops in, eh. Let’s eat ‘em.” Another Canadian comic adds, “In Canada, before the Thanksgiving season begins, we all remember to set our scales back 10 pounds.”

n China they celebrate an annual holiday around the 15th day of the eighth month on the lunar calendar, called the MidAutumn Festival, which typically falls in late September or early October when the moon is at its fullest and brightest. China’s Thanksgiving observance is vastly older than ours, extending back over 2,500 years,

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Beware of Old Golfers

Richard Johnson, an elderly golfer accidentally overturned his electric golf cart. A very attractive mature lady, who lived in a villa on the golf course, heard the noise and called out, "Are you okay?"

"I'm okay thanks," he replied as he pulled himself out of the twisted golf cart.

She said, "Come up to my villa, rest a while, and I'll help you get the cart up later." Richard took notice her silky bathrobe was partially open, revealing what appeared to be a very nice figure.

"That's mighty nice of you," the senior gentleman answered, "but I don't think my wife would like it." "Oh, come on now, " she insisted.

She was so pretty, and very, very persuasive.

The old guy was weak as he replied:

long before Europeans ever placed the first footprints in the New World. Similar to our own Thanksgiving celebration, China’s Mid-Autumn Festival expresses gratitude and thanksgiving for the changing of the seasons and to celebrate the fall harvest.

Reflecting on America’s great Thanksgiving tradition, TV host Conan O’Brien says, “Walmart announced that this Thanksgiving they are opening earlier than they ever have. Because what better way to celebrate the pilgrims’ arrival in America than buying crap from China?” Despite the fun and frolic, Thanksgiving Day here in America can also be a most traumatic experience. Just ask comedienne and actress, Stephanie Howard, who remembers ‘Coming out of the closet’ as a lesbian on turkey day, which she now jokes about: “My mom has a little nickname for when I came out. She calls it, ‘The Thanksgiving that Stephanie Ruined.’” Stephanie goes on to say that everything in her family history is now told by using her ‘coming-out-as-a-lesbian’ day as a time reference. As Stephanie explains: “For example, I’ll say, ‘Hey, Mom, what year did Grandpa have his heart surgery? And my Mom will say, ‘Well, let’s see. The Thanksgiving Day that you "Well okay," and headed to her place.

After a couple of Manhattans, Richard thanked her and said, "I feel a lot better now. But I know my wife is going to be really upset. So I'd better go now." "Don't be silly!" she said with a smile, letting her robe fall more open. "Stay for a while. She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?" "Still under the golf cart, I guess!" When in China . . .

At a travel agency in Shanghai, I asked the Chinese girl behind the counter if she could escort me on a city tour and asked her for her mobile number so I could call her to make arrangements. She gave me a big smile, nodded her head and said, "Sex sex sex, wan free sex for tonight". I replied, "Wow, you Chinese women are really hospitable". A guy standing next to me overheard, tapped me on the shoulder and said, "What she really said was: 666136429. The Blonde Wife..

On a bitterly cold winters morning a husband and wife in Connecticut were listening to the radio during breakfast. They heard the announcer say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through."

So the good wife went out and moved her car. A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through."

ruined was in 1992 . . . so that means, calculating the years back from ’92, uh, he had his surgery in 1967.’”

It’s more than possible that other countries which have similar Thanksgiving Day celebrations also have traumatic and stressful family reunions, just like us. And not every meal is a meal to remember. Late comedienne, Phyllis Diller, captures a culinary nightmare: “My cooking is so bad that my kids all thought that Thanksgiving Day was to commemorate Pearl Harbor!” Funny lady, Roseanne Barr, serves up another example of Thanksgiving Day’s unglamorous side: “Here I am at 5 o’clock in the morning, stuffing bread crumbs up a dead bird’s butt!” In Germany, at DusseldorfUrdenbach, they host their own annual harvest festival known as “Erntedankfest,” which attracts thousands of tourists to thank God for the gifts of harvest. For over 90 years, Erntedankfest is one of the largest and most important celebrations in the Rheinland and lasts from Friday to Monday in a traditional fair atmosphere. The Erntedankfest parades are (usually) held on the first Sunday in October. However, it is not (essentially) a family-oriented holiday, which departs company with America’s Thanksgiving Day observance of

The good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park...."

Then the electric power went out. The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, "I don't know what to do..Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snow plows can get through?" Then with the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, the husband replied, "Why don't you just leave the car in the garage this time?"

families sitting and feasting around the dinner table at home.

Humor seems the great neutralizer over the holidays. Because you can’t laugh and be angry at the same time. And no other country enjoys Thanksgiving Day humor more than we Americans. As comedian, Lewis Black, recalls: “One year my mother microwaved the frozen turkey. It had the consistency of turkey-bubble gum.” No one ever returned for another Thanksgiving dinner since.

How to survive Thanksgiving in America has risen to a high art form. For example, as one comic suggests, “To avoid arguing about politics with your grandparents, just suddenly break out into a song. Any song. This tactic usually leaves anyone openmouthed but speechless.” Japan celebrates a holiday similar to both our American Thanksgiving and Labor Day, rolled into one. On November 23, Japan celebrates their national holiday known as “Kinro Kansha no Hi” which traces back over 2,000 years to a ritual offering thanks for the season’s first rice harvest. Unlike Japan, America’s Thanksgiving Day customs can

His bookkeeper is deaf and that was the reason he got the job in the first place.

It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing so he would not have to testify in court. When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about his missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language. The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the money is!" The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, "Where's the money?" Guido signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about."

The lawyer tells the Godfather, "He says he doesn't know what you are talking about".

One evening, after the honeymoon, he was cleaning his golf shoes; his wife was standing there watching him.

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido's head and says, "Ask him again or I'll kill him!"

Jim gets this horrified look on his face.

Guido trembles and signs back, OK, OK The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno's house."

After a long period of silence she finally speaks. "Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married I think it's time you quit golfing. Maybe you should just sell your golf clubs." She says, "Darling, what's wrong?

"There for a minute, you were sounding like my ex-wife."

"Ex-wife!" she screams, "I didn't know you were married before!" "I wasn't.”

The Deaf Italian Bookkeeper...

A Mafia Godfather finds out that his home bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of $10,000,000.00.

The lawyer signs to Guido, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him."

The Godfather asks the lawyer, "What did he say?" The lawyer replies, "He says you don't have the guts to pull the trigger." Don't you just love lawyers?

sometimes, indirectly, affect our sex lives. As funnyman, George Carlin, once noted: “Here in America, have you ever noticed that you never get laid on Thanksgiving? I think it’s because all the coats (from visitors) are on the bed.” Half way around the globe, South Korea observes a special day of thanksgiving with their holiday known as “Chuseok Day,” which is held in mid-tolate September, when Koreans typically give thanks to their ancestors. As in America, South Korean celebrations across the country involve sharing a meal with family members.

As with South Korea, sharing a meal with family members can be a heart-warming experience. However, it can also be an unexpected eye-opener. As one comic explains, “In America, food can be a great conversation starter. For example, the absence of green bean casserole can lead you to question who your real parents are!”

In America, Thanksgiving Day often is a day of over-eating. Did you know that the busiest day for American plumbers is during and after Thanksgiving? That’s because of the tremendous amounts of food that often clogs our garbage disposals, etc.

Escondido Public Library Hosts December Holiday Events – The Library will celebrate the holidays with special programs for all ages planned during early December.

And according to Roto-Rooter, the nation’s largest plumbing service, it is the busiest day for American plumbers, as they explain: “After all, someone has to clean up after household guests who overwhelm the system.” Now, that’s a lot of consumed turkey! American humorist, Erma Bombeck, laughingly notes: “Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in 12 minutes! Now, football half-time (shows) also take 12 minutes – so, you do the math – this is not a coincidence!”

Several other countries, such as Vietnam have similar Thanksgiving Day observances. Like China, Vietnam observes the 15th day of the eighth month on the lunar calendar for the holiday known as “TetTrung-Thu Festival” or the Children’s Festival. Though it differs widely from American customs, it also has similar traits. The Vietnamese use this holiday to give thanks and celebrate with family, especially to make amends with their children who may have been neglected.

Comedian, Jim Gaffigan, wonders how the modern American Thanksgiving Day tradition started, as we know it today: “We already had a tradition of over-eating way before Thanksgiving. So, to make things different for Thanksgiving today, we just continue to eat a lot of food, but with people that annoy us.”

On Thanksgiving, the average American will consume about 4,500 calories (per person)! This caloric intake breaks down as follows: 3,000 of those calories will be from the main dinner itself. Then, 1,500 added calories will be ingested on snacking afterwards (all within the same day).

With all the gravy, mashed potatoes, yams, and pumpkin pies, some comedians say Thanksgiving Day meals should come with a free prostate exam for men and a complimentary cholesterol blood test for women. One comedienne said her blood test results after Thanksgiving came back: “911.”

Even among American households, each family has different experiences and memories to reflect on. As former talk show host, David Letterman, recalls: “My Mom, after six Bloody Marys, looks at the turkey and says, “Here, kitty, kitty.’”

Thanksgiving in America, there is a division of thinking. At this time, there are 12 different claims, each stating that their region was “first” in celebrating what we currently call the Thanksgiving tradition. The areas within the United States which make this firstThanksgiving-Day-claim are: two areas in Texas, two in Florida, one in Maine, two in Virginia, and five in Massachusetts.

So, according to researchers, “The jury is still out on, definitively, stating where the first European colonists held the first Thanksgiving Day celebration as we know it today.” There is little dispute, however, that the most famous Thanksgiving celebration was at Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts, in the year 1621. That particular Thanksgiving observance lasted three days, instead of only one day, which we customarily observe today.

Regardless of its true origins, American humorists have their own field day with commentary of their own, as with award-winning playwright and author, Dylan Brody, who quips, “You know that just before that first Thanksgiving dinner (with the

Small Restaurant Fire Escondido

On Thursday, November 16, at approximately 10:05 PM, the Escondido Police and Fire Communication Center received a report of a possible fire in a small resturant. The restaurant, Paulita’s Mexican Restaurant, was located at 636 N Broadway. A structure fire response was dispatched to the location. The first arriving unit reported smoke coming from what appeared to be a large vent pipe on the roof. The units on scene made access to the building and located a small fire that was being held in check by a commercial kitchen suppression system. Aggressive action by the firefighters contained and controlled the fire in approximately 20 minutes. The restaurant sustained moderate damage to the kitchen with minor to moderate smoke damage throughout the business. There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians. Four fire engines, one truck, one rescue ambulance and one Battalion Chief responded to the fire.

More Fireworks for Escondido Country Club?

After the Escondido City Council passed legislation allowing 380 homes to be built on the abandoned Escondido Country Club property many people assumed the issue was finally resolved. However, Michael Schlesinger, owner of the property, angered by opponents of the project who indicated they are considering a lawsuit seeking to overturn the council’s decision, issued an ultimatum which said he would seek developers other than New Urban West, killing that deal, and selling the land tto other developers who would, under state density bonus legislation, be allowed to build up to 800 homes. New Urban West will buy the land from Schlesinger, but only once all legal hurdles have been cleared.

ECCHO, the opposition group consisting of many residents of the Escondido County Club area immediately said they would be exploring options to overturn the council’s decision. New Urban West issued a statement shortly after the vote saying:

“We now look forward to continuing our work with the community, including the members of ECCHO, as we revitalize this once-prestigious neighborhood,” said New Urban West Project Manager Jonathan Frankel. “We have great respect for ECCHO and all they’ve endured over the years in their battle with the property owner.

attendee, was Plymouth Colony’s first governor, William Bradford, who was recorded as sending four men on a fowling (hunting) exercise in preparation of the Thanksgiving meal: “And besides waterfowl there was great store of wild turkeys, of which they took many. They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with little help beside, served the company almost a week.”

pilgrims), there must have been one wise, old Native American woman saying, ‘Don’t feed them. If you feed them, they’ll never leave.’” Here is your first, fun multiplechoice quiz regarding the Plymouth Thanksgiving dinner in 1621.

These surviving documents provide a most interesting keyhole glimpse into these historic proceedings, almost 400 years ago. Edward Winslow, an English leader who was in attendance, wrote home to a friend: “Many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation and bestowed on our governor, and upon the captain and others.”

Which food below was most abundant on the menu (the item most eaten) back then in 1621? A. Turkey B. Fish C. Deer D. Chicken E. Goose

This can be tricky but if you selected “C” above, well, you get an extra portion of pumpkin pie (ala mode). Back in 1621, only a few primary sources (the only surviving documents) confirm what was actually on the menu back then. And while these rare documents confirm that turkey was, indeed, eaten at this historic Thanksgiving, venison (deer) was far more abundant on the menu. It may surprise many readers to also learn that the nearby ocean also yielded up many scrumptious delights, such as fish, lobster, and other seafood delicacies for the early Thanksgiving palate. An

The 1621 Pilgrim Thanksgiving Day celebration, which occurred sometime between September 21 and November 1, included 50 surviving pilgrims and 91 Wampanoag Indians, including Chief Massasoit. History scholars note: “Thanksgiving dinner items at that time included ducks, geese, shellfish (such as lobster and oysters), eel, fish, berries, boiled pumpkin, fried bread made from corn, watercress, dried fruit, and plums.”

and better comprehend firsthand accounts through the eyes and minds of the pilgrims themselves.

It should be noted in passing, that this Thanksgiving at Plymouth in 1621 was not called “Thanksgiving” by the early pilgrims. The term, Thanksgiving, would come into broader, common usage by 1623. At the time it was an autumn harvest feast, plus a day of thanks giving, as recorded: “A solemn ceremony of praise and thanks to God for a congregation’s good fortune.”

To the pilgrims, a “turkey” sometimes meant any wild fowl (such as a duck or goose) and not just the turkey that we eat today. Incidentally, the wild turkey back in the pilgrim era were very small compared to the large turkeys we eat annually, which are much too large to fly. But, venison (deer) was most abundant at the Plymouth Colony Thanksgiving celebration back in 1621.

Native American comedian, Larry Omaha, shares a humorous view on the Thanksgiving tradition in America: “My mother won’t celebrate Thanksgiving. She says it represents the white man stealing our land. But she’s not angry. She figures, ‘What the hell, we’re taking our land back, one casino at a time.’”

A lot of Puritans’ personal papers were rediscovered in the middle of the 19th century (mid1800s), which confirm these accounts regarding early food diets, along with disease and horrific death, as well as deadly skirmishes with Native Americans.

As we are well aware, the day after Thanksgiving Day is one of the busiest shopping days of the year, referred to as “Black Friday.” Comedian, Alan Grier, jokingly responds: “Why are you asking me, a black man, about Black Friday?” Whereupon, fellow comedian, Shelley Berman, answers, “Black Friday – it’s not a racial holiday. It’s for everybody. Everybody is equally mis-

Thanksgiving Cont. from Page 5 treated.”

Just as Thanksgiving is fodder for the cannons of comedians everywhere, it is also the passion for U. S. historians to pore over. And a most fascinating study it is. Which U. S. President officially declared Thanksgiving as a national holiday? A George Washington B Thomas Jefferson C Abraham Lincoln D Andrew Jackson

Early U. S. Presidents observed various periods of Thanksgiving beginning with our first, George Washington; however, it was the rail splitter, and our tallest American president, Abraham Lincoln, who officially declared Thanksgiving a formal holiday in 1863. So, if you selected “C” above, Abraham Lincoln, well, you should take a bow. It is surprising for many to learn that Thomas Jefferson, “B” above, thought that the idea of Thanksgiving as a holiday to be, “The most ridiculous idea ever conceived.” And for the record, it was Franklin D. Roosevelt who proclaimed Thanksgiving to fall on every fourth Thursday of November (prior to that time, Lincoln had decided to make Thanksgiving Day on the last Thursday of November, but November sometimes has 5 Thursdays, making it inconsistent for FDR).

Today, Thanksgiving is one of the most popular holidays on our American calendar. About 535 million pounds of turkey will be eaten. But ironically, this nationally-cherished day of family reunions, etc., was not so popular with many states in earlier years. Why? Well, some states thought the national government was arbitrarily exercising too much control and power in dictating a national holiday for everyone. Also, the southern states at the time viewed Thanksgiving as a “Yankee” holiday up north; largely a New England practice. However, by the end of the 1800s, this southern view of an exclusive “Yankee harvest festival” soon evaporated. It was also the time when historical cookbooks reveal that sweet potatoes and pecan pie really grew in popularity on the Thanksgiving Day menu.

Whether it be pie, cake, turkey, stuffing, or a 3rd helping of mashed potatoes and gravy, such fatty foods can backfire on us at most inopportune moments. As comedian Kevin James says, “On Thanksgiving – not a good day to be a pair of pants.” Speaking of pies, which is America’s most popular pie on Thanksgiving?

A. B C D

Apple Pumpkin Cherry Pecan

Well, this kind of question could start a healthy argument, or perhaps incite a pie-throwing fight, ala The Three Stooges. But facts are facts and, besides, you have the right to indulge in your favorite Thanksgiving pie, regardless of its popularity or non-popularity. While it is true that pumpkin pie is most closely associated with Thanksgiving Day in America and that pumpkin pie sales are highest during Thanksgiving – it is still not the most popular pie consumed on that day. Sounds confusing, because although more pumpkin pies are sold and more pumpkin pies are eaten during Thanksgiving than any other day of the year, pumpkin pie is still not the most popular pie sold or eaten during the Thanksgiving season when compared to other pies.

That honor and title, rightfully, belongs to apple pies! So, if you selected “A” above, you are, surprisingly, correct! It may come as a shock to many but, apple pies are overwhelmingly the choice of most red-blooded Americans – not just on Thanksgiving Day but 365 days out of the year!

According to the most reliable national consumer sources and statistics, as well as the American Pie Council, and nationwide polls by Schwan’s Consumer Brands North America, Americans have had a long, unabashed love-affair with Grandma and apple pie; so much so that to this day apple pie remains “The King of Pies” with little or no serious challenges to its throne of popularity. (These national sales statistics include apple pie and its variations, such as apple crumb, etc.) Even Nielsen’s Perishables Group, a foremost expert on studying and tracking marketing and consumer trends across America agrees that apple pies are the most popular.

Did you know that if you lined up the number of pies sold at U. S. grocery stores in one year and placed them end-to-end, these pies would encircle our planet Earth – and there would still be plenty of pies to spare? Well, it’s true.

So, the next time you’re at the Wooden Spoon Restaurant off of East Valley Parkway in Escondido, or at Vinz Wine Bar and Restaurant off Grand Avenue, you might just swagger, mosey, or walk brazenly up to the counter or bar or waitress, and state your fierce hankering for the pie of your choice. (In my case, it will be cherry pie . . . ala mode.) Television host and comedian,

Changing the culture in Sacramento

Last month 140 legislators, staffers, consultants and lobbyists signed a letter declaring that there is a “pervasive culture of sexual harassment” in Sacramento. Signatories include six current legislators, a Board of Equalization member; both Republicans and Democrats. Allegations have been made against current and past legislators.

Unfortunately, given the power and influence of some of the alleged perpetrators, the consequences of speaking up about inappropriate behavior can be significant. For too long, this problem has been swept under the rug, with victims afraid to speak out or to identify those responsible.

Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D – Glendale), Chair of Assembly Rules Subcommittee on Harassment, Discrimination, Retaliation Prevention and Response, and myself as Vice Chair, announced that our committee will gather information about mistreatment from victims and examine current practices and policies. We will do all that we

David Letterman gives his everpopular Top Ten Countdown for a horribly bad Thanksgiving Day:

10. You ran out of booze by 11 a.m. 9. Most frequently used word at dinner: Heimlich. 8. Meal was leftovers from last Thanksgiving. 7. Thanks to new electric knife, kids fought over wishbone and your severed thumb. 6. The turkey was wearing a dog collar. 5. Spent day in Times Square waiting for the giant turkey to drop. 4. Woke up from typtophaninduced sleep to find yourself naked in the driveway. 3. When dinner came out, so did your son (as being gay). 2. Laura and the twins lock you out. 1. Your turkey dinner was the only breast you’ve touched all year.

As mentioned, there are other places around the world that observe similar celebrations as our Thanksgiving. We have our unique way of celebrating our own Thanksgiving. It is truly a day of thanksgiving for us because, despite all the imperfections, flaws, and obstacles in our way, we are still the greatest country on this third planet from the Sun. If you shall ever doubt these words, try living elsewhere before Home Sweet

can to ensure that a culture that seems to wink at abuse, harassment and obnoxious behavior changes immediately. In addition, victims must feel safe when reporting these incidents; we must ensure that retaliation or threats of retaliation are not tolerated. The Legislative Women's Caucus is advocating for a bipartisan, bi-cameral approach with the singular end goal of no more victims. Connecting victims to services, creating a safe reporting system, holding perpetrators accountable and changing the Capitol culture are critical sub goals. California has a longstanding reputation of supporting justice and equality for all. Apparently however, we still have a long way to go. Position and power should never be used as weapons.

Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, 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.

Home beckons.

As was once proclaimed, “Democracy is the worst form of government – except for all the others.”

Despite all the naysayers, the villains, the doubters, and the name-callers, we still are the envy of the world. There will always be those who shall be jealous of us and, instead of keeping their distance, they will wish to destroy us for all that we are, as Americans. Yes, we have our problems, which country does not? Most others are magnified, in fact, compared to ours.

Abraham Lincoln had it right all along, and he said it in various ways: “We are truly, the last best hope of the world.” We are a nation whose spirit will never be broken by any enemy, abroad or within. We are the same people who invented the roller coaster, rock ‘n’ roll, and the jaw breaker. And we are resilient and tough enough never to relinquish our sense of humor. As ScottishAmerican comedian, Craig Ferguson, reminds us as he tickles our fancy: “My favorite part of Thanksgiving is sweet potatoes. Because it reminds me of a dancer I once knew.”

We have much to live for. Much yet to overcome. Much yet to love and cherish. Through it all, we are still supremely, Americans. And for all that, we still have much to give thanks over this Thanksgiving season.

I served four years in the United States Navy as a radar man in combat, aboard a deadly Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser and various supercarriers, but each time – after being deployed overseas – when my country’s coastline came into view – well, I fell in love with Her, all over again. She is my Mother Land, my soil, my birthright. She yielded up life for me, from her bosom. I will never, ever forsake Her, my sacred land. But will defend Her with every drop of my precious blood. She is, my Home Sweet Home, America.

‘GET OFF YOUR DAMN KNEES!’

by Eileen F. Cosgrove

This Sunday, it was 11 years since two Marines showed up at our door to tell us that my husband’s first child, my stepson and our two children’s brother, Lance Cpl. Christopher B. Cosgrove III, 23, was killed by a suicide bomber at a checkpoint in Iraq. He should have been out of Iraq but he volunteered to stay behind to train the new Marines coming to replace them. Christopher left behind his mother, father, stepmother and stepfather, his brothers and his fiancée.

I watched as they informed my husband that his son, the love of his life, died in the line of duty. I watched the strong man I married be reduced to a puddle of tears. When I sat our children on the couch to tell them that Christopher was gone, I watched as my previously carefree 13-year-old son curled into a ball and began sobbing as if I just punched him in the stomach, and I had to look at my innocent 9year-old son and answer his question, “Why didn’t Christopher shoot the bad guy first?”

Several days later, we had the privilege of attending his “dignified transfer” at Dover Air Force Base. I’m sure you have seen it depicted on television or in the movies. Viewing it reduces most people to tears. To actually experience it is indescribable. The gut-wrenching, raw emotion of the experience is not anything an individual can prepare themselves for. The sound of “Amazing Grace” as you walk behind the casket, the sound of the 21-gun salute, the playing of “Taps” and the presentation of the flag at his graveside cannot be described because there are no words that can ever appropriately describe any of those moments. Looking up and seeing the Patriot Guard Riders lining the street to the church and the cemetery is breath-taking. However, in the end, the family goes home to live with the grief and loss for the rest of their lives.

Christopher loved his life. He loved being a Marine and he loved this wonderful country. He lit up a room when he walked into it. His laugh was infectious. Instead of watching football today, we decorated his Memorial Tree with orange lights and pumpkins for Halloween, which will be replaced by red, white and blue lights at Christmas time. We no longer watch the NFL. They’re not worth our time

I ask all of you taking a knee: Do ALL black lives matter or just some? Because if they do, why do you only protest the black lives lost as a result of police action? Michael Brown was a thug. Trayvon Martin was a thug. Anthony Lamar Smith was a heroin dealer. How many lives he destroyed in the black community will forever be unknown. Did any of you show up at the trial of MS-13 gang members who killed three innocent black teenagers and seriously wounded a fourth in a school yard in Newark in 2007 to comfort the families or any of the other trials of defendants who killed innocent children? Did you ever show up at any of the marches against violence by preachers and parents who have lost children that are held in the inner cities around this country? Do you care about the 506 people who have been killed in Chicago this year

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

next half-century.

On Nov. 3, 1911, Chevrolet co-founded the Chevrolet Motor Car Company with Durant and investment partners William Little and Dr. Edwin R. Campbell, The company was established in Detroit.

The origin of the iconic Chevy logo remains a mystery. One story tells the choosing of the company's logo as a modified Swiss cross to honor Chevrolet's homeland. Another story tells of the Chevrolet logo as a design taken from the wallpaper of a Paris hotel room where Chevrolet once stayed. ‘Chevy,’ is one of the world’s bestknown names

Like most of today’s automotive monikers, Chevrolet vehicles are named after its founder, Louis-Joseph Chevrolet. Most drivers and owners have no idea the name “Chevrolet,” or it’s more popular name, “Chevy,” was that of a Swiss-American, mechanic, engine designer and race car driver.

Chevrolet, who was born Dec. 25, 1878, was co-founder of the Chevrolet Motor Car Company, also was a founder in 1916 of the Frontenac Motor Corporation.

Chevrolet was born in Canton of Neuchâtel, a center of watchmaking in northwestern Switzerland. In 1886, Chevrolet's family left Switzerland to live in France. There, as a young man, Louis developed his mechanical skills and interest in bicycle racing.

Chevrolet had differences with Durant of General Motors over the car's design, and in 1915 sold Durant his share in the company and started McLaughlin's Company in Canada, building Chevrolets. By 1916 the trading of Chevrolet stock for GM Holding stock enabled Durant to repurchase a controlling stake in General Motors, and by 1917 the Chevrolet company that its namesake had co-founded was merged as a company into General Motors after the outstanding Chevrolet stocks were purchased in 1918.

The McLaughlin Car Company then merged with his Chevrolet Motor Company of Canada Ltd. to become General Motors of Canada Ltd. in 1918, prior to the incorporation of the General Motors Corporation in the U.S. when General Motors Company of New Jersey dissolved. In 1916, Louis Chevrolet and his brothers founded the Frontenac Motor Corporation to make parts for Henry Ford’s popular Model T.

Also in 1916, American Motors Corporation (unrelated to the later American Motors) was formed in Newark, New Jersey, with Chevrolet as vice president and chief engineer. By 1918, the company was producing cars in a plant at Plainfield, New Jersey. In 1923 it merged with the Bessemer Motor Truck Company of Pennsylvania into Bessemer-American Motors Corporation.

In 1919, as a racecar driver, Chevrolet drove in the Indianapolis 500 four times, with a best finish of 7th. He also raced for the Buick racing team. He went to Paris for a short time before emigrating to Montreal, Canada, in 1900. Chevrolet worked as a mechanic and in 1901 he moved to New York City where he worked for the Brooklyn operations of the French car manufacturer de Dion-Bouton.

In 1905, Chevrolet was hired by the Italian car company, Fiat, as a racing driver. Then in 1907, Chevrolet was hired by The Auto Car Company in Philadelphia for a secret project to develop a revolutionary front-wheeldrive racing car. His racing career continued as he drove for the Buick company, becoming a friend and associate of Buick owner William C. Durant, founder of General Motors. With little in the way of formal education, Chevrolet learned car design while working for Buick and started designing his own engine for a new car in 1909. He built an overhead valve six-cylinder engine in his own machine shop on Grand River Boulevard in Detroit, Michigan. The basic design of that engine would power Chevrolet cars and truck for the

Chevrolet died on June 6, 1941, in Detroit as a result of complications from a leg operation which led to its amputation. He is buried in the Holy Cross and Saint Joseph Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum in Speedway, Indiana, features a memorial at the entrance to the building dedicated to the accomplishments of Louis Chevrolet. The memorial, designed by Fred Wellman and sculpted by Adolph Wolter, was created during 1968-1970 and installed in the spring of 1975. The centerpiece of the memorial is a bronze bust of Chevrolet wearing a racing cap and goggles; it rests on a marble and granite square base. Around the world, the name “Chevy” is right up there with Ford as the two most popular vehicles – both autos and trucks. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of the Nazarene This week is “Black Friday.” It sounds ominous, but for millions of merchants it is the sound of cash registers ringing or the quiet hum of computers rolling out sales receipts. Accountants associate the color black with profit, with financial success. This Friday merchants hope they will get out of the red (the negative), into the black and finish the year on the positive side.

Early this month, merchants started looking forward to increased sales. They offered amazing deals and hundreds of bargains. They looked right past Thanksgiving toward Friday and its profits. Thanksgiving has long been characterized by remembering. It is a time of looking back. At our own history, at the nation’s history, indeed at the history of mankind, and being

Winston Churchill said, “The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” Some of us can look farther back than others. We just have a longer past. We are well into the second half of life. Reality says it is a longer look back than it is forward for us.

Our loved ones have a short past and a long future, but this is not about aging, youth or longevity.

It is about taking the long view, looking back with a thankful heart, and realizing that even if there were more rough patches than smooth ones, the smooth ones have prevailed. Then turning to look farther into the future than we will travel ourselves and realize that the road looks good for the future generations. The hope of Thanksgiving is not in the color of the ink in the ledger, it is in the belief that the same God that has seen us through the rough patches so we could enjoy the smooth ones, will be with those who are on the first half of their journey, until they, too, look back and are thankful that God has been with them.

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 Jim Desmond Happy Thanksgiving San Marcos

Thanksgiving is the time of year when we give thanks for the good things in life that make it special, including the privileges and rights that define us as Americans. Let each of us take a moment to give thanks for the men and women in military service to our country at home and around the globe and also for family, friends and others who give meaning to our lives. This year we have much to be thankful for. We especially give thanks for the

citizens in our community, young and old, from all walks of life, who make San Marcos a community that fosters goodwill and generosity.

As we approach the holiday season let us also remember there are many whose lives are less than whole and dedicate ourselves to being sensitive to their needs and making this a better community for all who call San Marcos home.

On behalf of the City of San Marcos, I wish you and your families the very best this Thanksgiving.

Road Rage

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, ''I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to SundaySchool' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally...I assumed you had stolen the car.''

Not only does this support local jobs, but the tax generated from the sales helps the City to fund fire and sheriff services, parks, recreation and senior activities, as well as other services that keep the city operating.

The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrels. After prayer and consideration, they concluded 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 that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creatures. So, they humanely

Expectations: When your PC needs professional help

At some point most of you will wind up with some kind of computer problem that you can’t fix. When that happens, unless it is a warranty issue, don’t even think about taking it back to the “big box” retail store where you bought it. The computer service departments in stores like Costco, Best Buy, Staples and Office Depot range from non-existent to pathetic. Big Box service techs are fine at delivering TV sets but a combination of high personnel turnover rates and corporate policies meant to protect corporate liability instead of serve

Liu deserve to be ambushed in N.Y. after BLM marched in the street chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot. I guess “blue” lives don’t matter to members of the NFL, except to their credit, the Dallas Cowboys.

I will not begin to presume how Christopher would feel about what the NFL is doing now by disrespecting the national anthem and the country for which he sacrificed his life. I can only share how I feel.

I’ve watched 8-year-old children emulating you as they took a knee as the national anthem played. Do you know that the tradition of playing the national anthem began in 1862, during the Civil War? Do those 8-year-olds know that the man they are disrespecting our flag and country for was a heroin dealer who fled the police in a high-speed chase? Whether you believe there was a gun or not, a gun was recovered in the vehicle. Do they know that, or are you teaching them that all cops lie? Did his coach portray him to them as an innocent black man randomly shot by the police or was he honest with them? What do you think?

I know what Christopher’s death did to our family. I know what the families of all those innocent children in Chicago and around the country are going through, because we have been there. I know what it is to wake up every day having lost a part of your family and knowing that your life will never, ever be the same. So, while you are busy taking a knee,

When you bring your computer into our shop you will hand it to a tech. They’ll plug it in while you tell them why you brought it in. The tech will ask questions and may ask you to show the problem. About 25% of the time the problem has disappeared. That usually means that the problem is related to something plugged into the computer at home (or work). Sometimes the problem is a setting or something simple that the tech can fix instantly. If the fix doesn’t break our ten minute rule there is no charge. If it looks like a real problem the tech will tell you what we think it is, how much it will cost to fix it and when you should expect to be able to pick it up. If the techs estimate turns out to be incorrect or if additional work is indicated we always contact you first.

There are some things to consider before you bring your computer in for repair. It is important that you have your important files and pictures backed up. There is nothing in our process that will lose or destroy files and pictures but s—t happens. Hard drives can fail and computers can hiccup. If something happens to your files while you computer is in our shop you will go to your grave believing that we did it through incompetence or evil intent and you will hate us forever. It’s a one in a thousand occurrence but since we work on more than a thousand PC’s each year, it will happen to us about once a year.

While your files can be saved, your programs cannot, they must be reinstalled in order for you to be able to access your files. Quickbooks, Office and any other programs must be reinstalled in order to read your files. When we reinstall a new OS for a customer we always allow 15 minutes for the tech to show them the location of their save file and to explain how to access them. Occasionally a customer will be upset because the computer doesn’t look exactly like it did before Windows was re-installed. We will be happy to spend as many hours as they like bringing back the past but it will cost them our $60/hr in house rent-a-tech fee. Some users still use internal email clients like Outlook, Outlook Express, AOL, Live Mail etc. These programs organize and store Email files on the PC instead of the “cloud.” Those who still use those programs will typically need

to buy an extra half hour of tech time to retrieve and re-set up their Email system. Passwords, It is amazing how many folks don’t know their email or home wifi passwords. They forget them because their computer remembers them. When the computer gets a new OS, those passwords must be reinstalled. For the most part our customers understand that computers don’t always do what they’re told. We always try to anticipate any questions, problems or issues that might be a surprise to our customer. We always try our best to meet our customer’s expectations and we do a pretty good job of it but there are times when expectations are simply unrealistic. The world just doesn’t always work the way we want it to.

game millions of young men would give their right arm to be talented enough to play at the professional level. Thank God for the ability to make more money in a single game than many of those police officers protecting you and your communities will make in a lifetime. Thank God for having been blessed to have been born in a country that gives you that opportunity for the sole reason that you are a gifted athlete Most of all, thank God for men like my stepson who fought in 120 degree heat in full military gear and died to defend your ability to live freely in this country. Get off your damn knees. Stand for the American flag and national anthem that represents the country and those who have died defending her to give you this opportunity, and DO something to prove that black lives actually DO matter to you. Put your money where your knee is..

Get engaged in the inner-city communities around you. Act as a role model and mentor to these kids. Set up your own scholarship funds at decent schools.. Take a ride-along with those officers you are protesting and see what they face every day as they do their best to protect ALL lives. Take a “Shoot, don’t shoot” class and see how difficult it is for officers to make that split-second decision, knowing that if they are wrong they will either die or go to jail. Meet with the families of children killed in random drive-by shootings and support them instead of those committing the crimes. Get to know some police officers and actually talk with them and, more importantly, listen to what they have to say. Support anti-gang initiatives.

As for me, once an avid football fan on every level, I haven’t watched you play since Kaepernick started this protest last year. I’ll watch college games, which are more fun anyway. If college students start participating in these protests, I can easily live without football.

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 at Christmas and Easter.

Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue; they took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven't seen a squirrel since.

CITY OF SAN MARCOS AMENDMENT TO THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS TRANSNET LOCAL STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM OF PROJECTS

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on November 28, 2017 a public hearing will be held with respect to the City of San Marcos amending projects in the 2016 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), as the Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Regional Transportation Planning Agency, is required by state and federal laws to develop and adopt a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The RTIP is a multi-billion dollar, multi-year program of proposed projects for major transportation projects in the San Diego Region. Transportation projects funded with federal, state, TransNet, and the San Diego transportation sales tax program must be included in an approved RTIP. The RTIP covers five fiscal years and incrementally implements San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan, the long-range transportation plan for the San Diego region. The current Regional Plan was approved by the SANDAG Board of Directors at its meeting on October 9, 2015. On September 23, 2016, the SANDAG Board of Directors adopted the final 2016 RTIP.

The City of San Marcos recommends programming the 2016 RTIP projects that are necessary to be amended as they are either regionally significant, capacity increasing projects or are projects that are being recommended for TransNet revenues. All projects programmed with TransNet funds meet all the requirements of the TransNet Extension Ordinance and accommodate travel for pedestrians and bicyclists. A complete list of the amendment is available for public review at Development Services Front Desk at City Hall, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA.

Interested persons wishing to express their views will also be given an opportunity to do so at the public hearing, commencing at 6:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard, and will be held at 1 Civic Center Drive in the Council Chambers, San Marcos, California.
