Thanksgiving is one of America’s biggest and most popular holidays, and yet there is much about this special day which we do not know. Sit back, relax, and have fun reading about one of our most precious days which brings families and friends together to celebrate and honor our country’s rich heritage. This article also offers a fun, interactive part to invite family and friends for a friendly multiple-choice quiz – before or after dinner. So eat, drink, be merry and enjoy some fun – and sometimes shocking – facts about the great American tradition we call Thanksgiving.

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).

Regarding the original 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 first-Thanksgiving-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. Here is your first, fun multiple-choice quiz regarding the Plymouth Thanksgiving dinner in 1621.

Question is, 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

Well, this can be tricky, but, you have 1 in 5 chances of getting the correct answer. If you selected “C” above, The Paper - 760.747.7119

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 actual eyewitness, and 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, Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12

with little help beside, served the company almost a week.”

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.” Cranberries, which are a regular Thanksgiving Day staple, then and now, were also widely used by the Native Americans to treat wounds and to dye clothes.

The 1621 Pilgrim Thanksgiving Day celebration, which occurred some-

time 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.”

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. A lot of Puritans’ personal papers were rediscovered in the middle of the 19th century (mid-1800s), which

confirm these accounts regarding early food diet, human endeavor, struggle, as well as disease and horrific death, as well as deadly skirmishes with Native Americans. Such invaluable archival journals and notes which have survived the times allow us to step inside a virtual time machine of sorts, to revisit, and to see, feel, and better comprehend first-hand accounts through the eyes and minds of the pilgrims themselves. The Plymouth Colony Thanksgiving event was a momentous occasion in our country’s history books. 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, “A solemn ceremony of praise and thanks to God for a congregation’s good fortune.” 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, well, you should take a bow. It is surprising for many to learn that Thomas Jefferson, “B” above, thought that the proclamation of Thanksgiving as a federal 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 to 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

I saw the cell phone thing first hand. My wife and I were just seated in a booth, my wife with her back to a man in the booth behind her and me facing my wife and the other man's date. The woman was on her phone talking intently to a friend as we sat down. They were served their food just after we were seated, the woman still on the phone. She continued talking on the phone as she ate. Even just being able to see the back of the man, I could tell by his body language he was becoming very upset with the woman. She continued on the phone for the entire meal, talking loudly and annoying everyone seated within earshot. The phone conversation ended when the server brought the check.

Now the good part .... the man said to the waitress, "We'll have separate checks, please." The woman's mouth dropped open and she said, "But I didn't bring any money, we're on a date and you're supposed to pay."

The man replied "You're right, we were on a date. You have a phone, call your friend to bring you some money, you talked to them all night and ignored me. Ask them for a ride home, too."

I asked evelyn what to wear tomorrow for my birthday. She said, "why don't you be different and wear your birthday suit?" I looked at her and said . . ."It's wrinkled."

At that, the man walked to the cashier, paid for his meal and left the woman sitting there dumbfounded. My wife and I, along with the other patrons annoyed by the woman on the phone..... all wanted to jump up and "cheer" this man for doing the right thing.

Which Christmas song was, initially, most associated with Thanksgiving Day? A. The Little Drummer Boy B White Christmas C Silent Night D. Jingle Bells

Well, this one is tricky and difficult to guess because historians are not in full agreement on the song’s original intention. However, if you selected “D” above, Jingle Bells, well, you’re on the right track and should be given credit nonetheless.

One thing is known for certain, the song “Jingle Bells” was not initially, intended as a Christmas song and this fact alone is enough to shock many Christmas revelers! Perhaps more unsettling for Christmas observers is that Jingle Bells is thought by many scholars to be originally written as a drinking song by its American composer, James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893), which he published under its original title of “One Horse Open Sleigh” during the autumn of 1857. A plaque at 19 High Street in Medford Square in Medford, Massachusetts, claims that Pierpont first wrote the song in 1850 at the Simpson Tavern, a popular drinking establishment at the time. Although historians are still debating where the song was first composed (in Massachusetts or Georgia), it is general consensus that it was a drinking song, a favorite among Thanksgiving Day celebrants. Lyrics have changed down through the EXAM QUESTION

In a college level advanced Biology exam, the last question was, 'Name eight (8) advantages of Mother's Milk'. This final question was worth 70 points or zero, none at all. One male student in particular, was hard put to think of eight advantages. However, after some serious contemplation, he wrote this answer:

1) It is a perfect formula for the child. 2) It provides immunity against several diseases. 3) It is always the right temperature. 4) It is inexpensive. 5) It bonds the child to the mother and vice versa. 6) It is always available as needed. ...and then, the student was struck dumb for two more answers so in desperation, and only just before the bell rang to indicate the end of the exam, he wrote: 7) It comes in two quite attractive containers, and 8) it's high enough off the floor where the cat can't get at it. He got an A+

Importance of Walking

Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $7000 per month. My dad started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 105 years old, and we don't have the slightest clue where he is.

years but some of the original words were slang for “drunk or intoxicated,” perhaps by association with the British terms, such as “sot” (MerriamWebster defines “sot” as: “a drunkard or a person who is often drunk”). As mentioned, the lyrics have vastly changed down through the years and this once-popular Thanksgiving Day melody has been rewritten in various foreign languages throughout the world.

But as an original American song, Jingle Bells will forever be linked, historically, with drinking alcohol during the Thanksgiving celebration. In this regard some things did not change, for it is interesting to note that in America, the day before Thanksgiving, traditionally, remains one of the biggest drinking days of the year! According to “Alcohol and America” statistics, “Thanksgiving Day remains among the top five days in the consumption of alcoholic beverages in America.” Now that’s enough to jingle your bells!

Thanksgiving Day is ranked as America’s most popular holiday, second only to Christmas. However, Thanksgiving Day surpasses every major American holiday (including Christmas) in what category? A. Most money spent. B. Church attendance. C. Most car accidents. D. Most traveling.

I like long walks, Especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing... I joined a Wellness Center last year, spent over 700 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.

Every time I hear the dirty word '’exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, '’well, he looks good doesn't he'?! (One of the three stages of Man ~ Childhood, Adulthood & He Looks Good!) If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country. I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years ... just getting over the hill.

We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Small Business Saturday – Small Business Saturday returns on November 26th. What started in 2010 as a call to rally behind the small business community in the wake of the deep recession has not only become a yearly tradition, but a movement. More than 95 million shoppers dropped by mom and pop stores, restaurants, salons, and other small establishments in their neighborhoods during Small Business Saturday in 2015, generating a whopping $16.2 billion in sales, according to results from the Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey. Small Business Saturday shows no sign of slowing down, and this year it's shaping up to be another record-breaker. When shopping, visit your favorite small business.

If you guessed correctly on this one you deserve a pat on the back and an extra bonus point. Especially in light of the fact that the wrong answer is sometimes cited over the internet. Nevertheless, according to the most respected travel experts and official statistics, the correct answer is “D,” the most traveled day of any other holiday.

It is important to emphasis that Thanksgiving Day – not the day before Thanksgiving -- is actually the busiest travel day of the year. There are many people to this day who claim that the day (before) Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day. This is incorrect. For the record, the busiest day for Christmas travel is December 23. The busiest day for New Year’s travel plans is December 30. And even though summer travel is rated exceedingly high (especially during the month of August), this is a general time period and not in the category of: “single, busiest day for holiday travel.”

Because Thanksgiving Day is so busy with people en route, travel authorities say it is best to stay away from the airports and roadways, if possible. No other holiday or special day (such as Mother’s Day, Fourth of July, Memorial Day, nor Labor Day) even comes close. With fuel prices and airfares lower than in past years, the day prior to this 2016 Thanksgiving Day could possibly set

new travel records. In fact, 34% of Americans say they are already dreading the anticipated long airport lines. And the roadways, shockingly, will be even worse, with approximately 45million travelers planning to drive to their destinations this year. For reference, 2012 saw nearly 43 million people traveling for Thanksgiving: 90percent traveled by car, while the other 10 percent traveled by air, train, or bus. Which is America’s most popular pie on Thanksgiving? A. Apple B Pumpkin C Cherry D 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. 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

John Meyer was a member of our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club. We knew him well.

Someone called me the night he passed away and asked me to come over. I still don't know why. When I arrived John was still on the floor, awaiting the mortuary to remove his remains. I comforted his wife and daughter as best I could .. . and, in due course, took my leave.

Santa and Mrs. Claus ended that night. The enormous tree has long since been cut down and there are no more Christmas Tree Lights for parents to bring their children and

entertainment, including local blues and jazz bands; food from Red Oven Artisanal Pizza and Pasta, hot coffee and treats from Feel Good Coffee Cart.

grandchildren to see.

Up until John died, they would hold court most every night during the Christmas season and family after family would come by, child after child got to see Santa and Mrs. Claus and some, if they weren't too much in awe, got to sit on Santa's knee. It was a long and grand tradition. Many adults brought their children and/or grandchildren to enjoy the same Christmas tradition they had when they were children. Now, all gone.

Just a very pleasant memory.

The Paper • Page 4 • November 24, 2016 Serious Injury Accident - Escondido

On Wednesday, November 16, at about 10:02 PM, officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched along with the Escondido Fire Department to the area of Centre City Parkway north of Brotherton Road regarding a serious injury collision. Officers arrived minutes later and located two involved vehicles on Centre City Parkway at the S. Escondido Boulevard connector. Based on witness statements and physical evidence at the scene it appears a 29 year old male was riding his Kawasaki motorcycle north bound on Centre City Parkway. A 20 year old female driver in a black Subaru crossed the north bound lanes of Centre City Parkway from the S. Escondido Boulevard connector and a collision occurred. The motorcyclist was transported to the Palomar Medical Center by Escondido Fire Paramedics. He suffered a broken right femur, broken ribs, and a broken collar bone. The female driver of the other vehicle was not injured. Alcohol or drugs impairment was not a factor in this collision. During the investigation a passing motorist drove over the flare pattern into the collision scene. Officers stopped the driver and noticed signs and symptoms consistent with alcohol intoxication. The male driver was subsequently arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. The Escondido Police Department would like to remind the public that the consequences of drunk driving are serious. Not only are impaired drivers putting their lives and the lives of others at risk, but a DUI arrest means a loss of freedom and money. That can include going to jail, losing a driver license, and

paying steep financial costs of $10,000 or more. As we enter the holiday season there are a number of alternatives to driving impaired.

Alexandre Corona-Montes, of Vista, was arresed and held on $205,000 bail.

On Friday morning, November 18th, at approximately 2:10am, Escondido police officers responded to a domestic dispute call in the 2200 block of E. Lincoln Ave. When officers arrived they contacted a male and female outside of the residence. Upon entering the residence, officers found an adult male with multiple stab wounds. Officers rendered medical aid to the victim, who was transported to Palomar Medical Center by Escondido Fire Department personnel. The victim was pronounced deceased at the hospital. The identity of the victim is being withheld pending notification of family.

One of the fires destroyed a vehicle. The fires broke out about 6am near Old River and Mission Roads.

Arrest Made in Escondido Homicide

Escondido police detectives have been diligently investigating the homicide since the incident was first reported. The investigation has led to the arrest of Alda Garcia, a 35 year old resident of Escondido. It is believed that Garcia and the victim were in a dating relationship. Garcia was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on one count of Murder and one count of Inflict Injury upon Spouse/Cohabitant. The investigation is on-going. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call Escondido Police Detective John O’Donnell at 760-839-4756, or leave an anonymous tip at 760-743-TIPS (8477). Alleged Arsonist Arrested

Once again Mr. Gomez has written an excellent piece entitled, "Is America Falling Apart?" He has some great quotes from Twain, Groucho, Lincoln, Jefferson, Chomsky and Napoleon. His survey of American history is well done. On the JFK assassination, Rodger Stone wrote a thoroughly researched book in which he determined that a CIA operative under LBJ's orders had him assassinated. First Lady Jackie Kennedy also suspected Johnson. America has lost its Reformational roots from John Calvin and Scripture. It was brought to our shores by the Pilgrims and Puritans.

Meanwhile, all eyes remain focused on the the national election where a political newcomer suddenly became the President-elect. All of us are waiting with bated breath (which I think we’ll all agree is better than no breath at all) over who will make up the Cabinet of President-elect Donald Trump.

overwhelmingly the choice of most red-blooded Americans – not just on Thanksgiving Day, but 365 days out of the year! According to 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 loveaffair 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.) Fun fact is that approximately $700million in pies are sold in grocery stores every year, and a lot of those sales are during the Thanksgiving time of year. That’s a lot of money in pies, especially when this hefty price tag doesn’t even include pies sold in restaurants, food service or price clubs, but only in grocery stores! 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.

Next to apple pie during Thanksgiving it is a close ‘horse race’ with a variety of other pies bringing up the rear: pumpkin pie (on

Thanksgiving only) narrowly edges out pecan, cherry, lemon meringue, chocolate crème, blueberry, key lime, then peach. (I don’t know about you but I have to wear a bib just mentioning these pies!)

So the next time you’re at Charlie’s Restaurant in Escondido, or O’ Sullivan’s Irish Pub 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.) When was the first radio broadcast of a Thanksgiving Day NFL football game and which two teams were involved? (This was the forerunner of our televised NFL games we see every year, traditionally on Thanksgiving Day.) A Green Bay Packers vs. Cleveland Browns, 1920 B Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants, 1930 C Detroit Tigers vs. Washington Senators, 1932 D Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears, 1934

Well this should get the men’s attention! And a lot of women fans too! If you selected “D” above, well you are absolutely correct! Congratulations!

The University of Detroit Stadium officially hosted the first broadcasted Thanksgiving Day football game over the radio airwaves in 1934, pitting the mighty Detroit Lions against the defending world champion

New York is the most popular holiday parade in all of America, attracting over 3 ½-million people to the streets of New York City every year and watched by more than 50 million television viewers nationwide.

Chicago Bears.

In 1934, over 26,000 fans jammed into the University of Detroit Stadium – with thousands more turned away – for that historic NFL matchup which saw the legendary Chicago Bears prevail, 19-16, over the Detroit Lions.

The legendary parade has featured countless characters down through the years but, the most popular of all by far, is “Snoopy.” For those who are not aware (but your kids will quickly bring you up-to-date), Snoopy is Charlie Brown’s pet beagle and he made his 1950 debut in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz.

This milestone NFL game of 1934 was carried by NBC Radio Network, coast-to-coast, on 94 stations. This NFL contest would eventually segue from radio to television broadcasting which would forever shape the American tradition of watching football on Thanksgiving Day.

How popular is Snoopy? On November 2, 2015, Snoopy was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but his phenomenal popularity did not stop there. Aside from being loved by countless children from around the world, you might say without exaggeration that Snoopy’s popularity is, well, out of this world.

(Notation: the concept of American football games (non-professional) being played on Thanksgiving Day date back to 1876, soon after the game was invented. Thanksgiving Day was considered ideal since most people did not have to work that day. 1876 saw the two college teams, Yale and Princeton, begin an annual tradition of playing each other on Turkey Day.)

In both aviation and space flight Snoopy’s immortality has gone where few have gone before. His giant statue – in full astronaut outfit -- has been formally erected at the Kennedy Space Center. Snoopy is now located in the Apollo/Saturn V building! It has become apparent that Snoopy’s celebrity is not only embraced by children everywhere but even by our top-drawer scientists and astronauts.

“Following the Apollo 1 fire, Snoopy became the official mascot of aerospace safety, testing, and the rebuilding of the Apollo Program.” I don’t know about you but I’m impressed! Many are shocked to learn that the Apollo 10 lunar module was actually named Snoopy! Also, the fabric cap worn by NASA astronauts as part of the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (when they are floating in space outside the space module) is known as a “Snoopy Cap,” in reference to how the earflaps resemble Snoopy’s fur and ears.

If Snoopy’s image and character mean this much to our U. S. astronauts who risk their lives, then you better read on. But you best be sitting down because you may not believe what you are about to read about this most popular Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade icon. The Silver Snoopy Award is a special NASA honor, in the form of a sterling silver pin with an engraving of Snoopy in a spacesuit helmet. It is only bestowed by an official astronaut to someone who works in the space program who has gone aboveand-beyond in pursuit of quality and safety. Snoopy is also the name of a special United States Air Force B-58 Hustler bomber, serial number 55-0665, which was modified to test radar systems in top secret projects. And if that were not enough to buckle your

O'Hare brought cases before the Supreme Court to remove Christianity from the public square. She met an untimely death at the hands of her fellow atheists, which is the logical conclusion of the worldview. SAT/ACT scores went down, greater violence and student disrespect of teachers, lower expectations have been the result of the values vacuum. Now we have shootings in our schools due to the postmodern, relativist perspective taught in our public schools. There is a need for churches to partner with the schools, Christian groups' to outreach on the campuses, Released time, classes like The Bible as Literature and the teaching of our true heritage and values are essential.

The ACLU, atheists and secularists perpetuate the myth of "separation of church and state," which is found nowhere in our Constitution. Jefferson would be appalled as to how his words have been taken out of context and used to undermine our republic. President-Elect Trump will protect our religious liberties, that have made our country great and appoint judges who won't rewrite our Constitution. Sincerely, Mark A. Peter, Solana Beach, CA.

knees, the Charles M. SchulzSonoma County Airport in California (named after Snoopy creator, Charles Schulz), has a logo featuring Snoopy in his World War I flying ace combat outfit, flying atop his doghouse. To all our military men with boots on the ground, and those on the high seas, and overhead in the clear blue yonder, Snoopy can be found in their hearts and spirits.

Often times in the human drama there is no accounting for taste, or loyalty, or defining love, or why we Americans like this over that. But, one element of truth is Snoopy’s love affair with our U. S. veterans.

Did you know that Snoopy is the official mascot of the 26th Squadron (Barons, pronounced Barones) of the United States Air Force Academy, appearing on their squadron patch? Yes, I know, it is difficult to believe just how popular that Snoopy is with our Armed Forces! In the end there is just too much to say about Snoopy and his appearance as the all-time most popular character in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. He is no longer just a 5-story high balloon to excite kids. He has excited our country of scientists, NASA astronauts, military heroes, veterans, and the children of grassroots America. As well as being a favorite of international children from every civilized country around the world!

In 1969, after the historic moon landing of the first human beings, The New York Times headlined: “Creator, Schultz, Tempts Fate on Apollo Mission.” Then the Times wrote: “Certainly, if a tragedy had occurred, as well it might have, the symbols (of Snoopy) would forever remain in man’s mind as a symbol of disaster. But creator, Schultz, known as Sparky, has always had faith in the Apollo program, from the very start, and he felt if those men could risk their lives, the least he could do would be to risk the popularity of Snoopy, as well.”

Apollo 11 safely returned to planet Earth.

By the astronauts’ own invitation, Snoopy was there for the historic roundtrip journey, embedded in their patchwork, space caps, module logos, etc. He is considered a “good luck charm” for these brave American space pioneers who risk their lives for the advancement of humanity.

Snoopy’s presence never departed their company and was with Neil Armstrong when he placed the first human footprint on the moon! We Americans can be unpredictable as to what we like and dislike. And our behavior may seem odd, bizarre, and even mysterious to other cultures. But that’s what makes us uniquely American. We make no apologies for our sentiments, our loyalties, and our often unpredictable ways.

The author, Friedrich Gomez

On July 20, 1969, the Apollo 11 lunar module, Eagle, landed on the moon, placing the first human beings on the lunar surface. Descending the space module ladder, Neil Armstrong uttered those immortal words to over half-a-billion people, still earthbound: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” A few days later, on July 24, 1969,

The Results Are In

Thanks to my wonderful district, I am honored to have been re-elected to continue to serve as your voice in Sacramento. While the November 8th general election will be bringing a new direction and lots of new faces to Washington DC, to governors’ mansions and to legislatures across the nation, in many ways California is moving against the tide. Even so, big changes are coming to Sacramento. When the Legislature is sworn in next month, women will hold 27 of 120 seats, four less than now. This decline is the result of a drop in Democratic women in the Senate, and Republican women in the Assembly. Another change is the final turnover of the “old guard,” legislators elected under previous term limit rules that limited assembly-members to three two-year terms and Senators to two four-year terms. The Assembly old guard is gone

We Americans have a great tradition of Thanksgiving. And the meld of Americans begat from that first Thanksgiving Day lives on in the DNA of Americans today. Native American ancestry vibrates in the bloodline of many of our proudest sons who claim that heritage, from Will Rogers, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Carrie Underwood, Val Kilmer, Megan Fox, Beyonce, Brad Pitt, Heather Locklear, Cameron Diaz, and Johnny Depp, to name just a few.

The most significant change may be the partial re-establishment of the Democrat twothirds Super Majority in the State Assembly. A two-thirds majority gives the dominant party the power to raise taxes, pass constitutional amendments and override gubernatorial vetoes without any votes from the minority party. However, though votes are still being counted as this is written, it appears that Democrats were unable to re-establish a twothirds majority in the Senate, making any plans they may have to weaken Proposition 13 or increase taxes uncertain at best. As the new session begins, I will continue to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get Californians back to work, safeguard our communities, provide quality schools for our children, and upgrade the state’s antiquated highway and water infrastructure.

try boy, Tommy Lee Jones, was asked about his movie success, he was simply quoted in Cowboys & Indians Magazine as saying: “Not bad for a little Indian boy. Not bad.” The heritage of that first, great Thanksgiving Day proudly lives on today in the fabric and bloodline of our great nation.

In a worldwide survey, among the most popular questions foreigners ask about us Americans are: “Why do Americans always talk louder than everybody else?” And, “Do you say the Pledge of Allegiance before dinner?” We, as Americans, are proud of our customs, traditions, and holidays. We make no apologies for perhaps speaking loudly. That is what makes us who we are. The greatest crime would be to try to change ourselves merely to fit into another culture’s expectations. There are other places around the world that observe similar celebrations as 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 Home beckons.

The Electoral College: Bad News for the Dems

The Electoral College, which officially elects and confirms the winner of presidential elections, has not been kind down through the years to the Democrat candidates. Five times in electing U.S. presidents, Democrats have won the popular vote but lost the presidency to the Electoral vote. The first Democrat to lose to the Electoral College was Andrew Jackson, but he came back four years later to win. Others weren’t so lucky.

Democrats Samuel J. Tilden, Al Gore, and most recently, Hillary Clinton, are the only presidential candidates to win the popular vote without being elected president. Jackson lost the 1824 election after winning the popular vote, however, he made a comeback and was elected to the presidency in 1828. Grover Cleveland won the popular vote in all three of his elections in which he was the Democratic nominee -- 1884, 1888, and 1892 -- but he lost the presidency in 1888 because Republican nominee Rutherford B. Hayes won more electoral votes. The election of 1876 closely mirrored the most recent (2016) presidential election as being one of the most contentious in U.S. history. Hayes lost the popular vote to Tilden but he won an intensely disputed electoral college vote after a Congressional commission awarded him 20 contested electoral nods. The result was the Compromise of 1877, in which the Democrats acquiesced to Hayes's election.

Samuel J. Tilden

Tilden was considered the front-runner for the Democratic nomination when he ran again in the 1880 campaign. And, like Hillary, Tilden was done in by electronic messaging. He lost all chances of obtaining victory when Tilden suffered a blow in October 1878. The Republican-leaning New York Tribune claimed to have unearthed and decoded secret "cipher" telegrams sent by Tilden's agents at the

Rutherford B. Hayes

Tilden, of course, denied all knowledge of such dispatches, and appeared voluntarily before a Congressional subcommittee in New York City to clear himself of the charge. The attempt to implicate him in corrupt transactions failed, and he was cleared of any personal wrong-doing. Nevertheless, Tilden’s political opponents endeavored to make capital out of the in subsequent campaigns. The controversy somewhat damaged Tilden's reputation for honesty, and he did not run anymore.

So, when present-day folks complain the most recent election was the worst ever, they’d better go back and read up on political history. Our 2016 election pales compared to some of the election campaigns during the 1880s. And, the media? If you think presentday media is biased, history has a lot to say about the newspaper wars during those contentious elections of the 1880s. Nasty name-calling and dirty tricks were bountiful, commonplace and expected. It was all part of daily entertainment.

The Associate Minister unveiled the church's new campaign slogan last Sunday: 'I Upped My Pledge - Up Yours.' ••••• A guy goes into the confessional box after years being away from the Church. He pulls aside the curtain, enters and sits himself down.

There's a fully equipped bar with crystal glasses, the best vestry wine, Guinness on tap, cigars and liqueur chocolates nearby, and on the wall a fine photographic display of buxom ladies who appear to have mislaid their garments.

He hears a priest come in:

"Father, forgive me for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession and I must admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be." The priest replies, "Get out, you idiot. You're on my side." FIVE THINGS TO REMEMBER

1. Money cannot buy happiness, but it’s more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

2. Forgive your enemy, but remember the bastard's name. 3. Help someone when they are in trouble and they will remember you when they are in trouble again. 4.

Why not buzzard? Or crow? Turkey.

But, God cares about turkeys. Jesus said so. All kinds of turkeys.

Pastor Tom Fry, (retired) Church of the Nazarene

Vladimir is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 7 month old, 44 pound, Siberian Husky mix puppy.

Siberian Huskies are working dogs. Unless you have a sled for Vladimir to pull, he’s going to need plenty of walks, runs, or trips to the dog park or beach. He knows, “Sit, Down, High 5, and Give Me 10.” He would be happy to learn more tricks in exchange for treats or a tummy rub.

The $145 adoption fee for Vladimir includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.

Juno, an 8-year-old Siberian Husky mix, is looking for a new best friend. This beautiful boy was brought in by his previous owners because he was very nervous around the new baby in the home.

Juno is a sweet, soft dog who enjoys a calm environment with adults or older children only. He loves to go on walks, hikes and fun adventures. He’s great on leash and is a great listener! Juno also loves to play with balls and will pounce and play with them all day if you let him.

Juno is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus located at 3450 East Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.

Jesus said, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.”

I’m not sure he had turkeys in mind when he said that. After all, have you ever seen a turkey really fly? Had to look above your head to see one soaring with the eagles? Yet, they are birds, and most of us will ask in the next day or two, “When is the bird going to be done?”

Turkeys are the Rodney Dangerfields of birds. They “don’t get no respect.” While turkeys make the ultimate sacrifice to be the center piece of a beautiful Thanksgiving Day table and the main course of the feast, when someone acts unkindly toward us, does something we don’t like, or cuts us off on the freeway, our first comment is, “What a turkey.”

The ones that will be basted, baked, roasted, deep fried and grilled this week.

The kind that do things we don’t like, are unkind, self-serving, even dangerous. Even the ones that just irritate us because they do things differently than we would.

Turkeys. Not the prettiest bird in the flock. Perhaps not even the tastiest. But God cares about them.

I didn’t quote the whole verse from Matthew. It ends with Jesus asking, “Are you not much more valuable than they?” Or as The Message translation says, “And you count far more to him than birds.”

So this Thursday, when you are settling in after dinner to watch yet another football game, take a moment to think about turkeys. Not the leftovers in the refrigerator, but all the turkeys in your life. God cares about turkeys. All kinds of turkeys. And He cares more about you than all those turkeys. Then, once again, be thankful.

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.

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.

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. On behalf of the City of San Marcos, I wish you and your This year we have much to be families the very best this thankful for. We especially give Thanksgiving. Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed

Not wanting to miss that vital organ and become a vegetable and a burden to someone, she called her doctor's office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be on a woman. The doctor told her, “Your heart would be just below your left breast.” Later that night I received a call from the hospital that Aunt Mildred had been admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her knee.

This guy walks into a psychiatrist’s office with a duck on his head. “May I help you?” politely inquires the psychiatrist.

“Yeah,” says the duck. “Get this guy off my butt!”

Vista’s Holiday Traditions

M a n y community events and traditions are celebrated in Vista this time of year and it’s the perfect time to experience the small downtown charm of the city. The Vista Chamber’s holiday parade in downtown takes place on December 3. This year’s theme is “It’s a Nintendo Christmas.” The Vista Village Business Association Winterfest Celebration and the Vista Community Clinic’s annual Holiday Homes Tour, which features Vista’s own Rancho Buena Vista Adobe, are

both on Sunday, December 4. The Home Tour raises much needed funds for pediatric care to local children. On December 10, bring the kids and grandkids to the “Santa at the Adobe” event at the Buena Vista Adobe from 10 am to 3 pm ($5 tickets sold at the gate). Check the CityofVista.com website for more information. As we move into the holidays, I encourage you to shop in Vista. 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.

Winners and Losers - Part II

Two weeks ago we started a discussion on the five most valuable public companies (by market capitalization) in terms of who is winning and who is losing. The companies in order of value are Apple, Alphabet (Google), Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook. The two we selected as losers are the two oldest companies on this list, Microsoft and Apple.

Both are stuck with their historic revenue sources in markets that have stopped growing. Microsoft basically sells computing and communication software and services for PCs; Apple basically sells computer and communications hardware. Both are beginning to see a decline in revenues due to ageing technology, competition and loss of market share. Both have experienced the recent failure of new products aimed at broadening their offerings (Apple’s Apple Watch and Microsoft’s

Obituary

Number two on the list, Alphabet; (Google) gets 80% of its $100 billion (2016) from “advertising.” Alphabet’s “Android” operating system powers over 80% of the worlds smart phones giving them control over mobile Internet advertising. Other Alphabet products like the Goggle Chrome browser, the Search search engine and properties like YouTube contribute directly and indirectly to Alphabets advertising income stream. Alphabet also created the “Chrome OS” that powers the new generation of cloud based PCs called Chromebooks. These inexpensive alternatives to Windows and Apple portables are sold by all the major PC manufacturers and are a growing threat to Apple and Microsoft in notebook, tablet and even desktop PC sales. Amazon.Com rose from an on-line bookstore to become the World’s online shopping center for general merchandise. A key to Amazon’s success has been their ability to engineer a highly efficient “fulfillment” operation (storage retrieval, material handling and shipping.) Their high volume operation enables volume pricing on merchandise, freight and credit card processing fees. This puts Amazon in the “catbird” seat among rival Internet merchandisers. Amazon’s successful hardware products like Kindle and Echo compete with Apple and Microsoft. Amazon recently revealed plans to create a chain of convenience stores and curbside food pick-up locations. With a growth

Last but not least, Face Book, the Internet social media king, derives its revenue from advertising. Face Books revenues are much smaller than those of the other four companies, (around $30 billion in 2016 compared to well over $100 billion for the other four), but it’s rapid growth in users (near 2 billion), revenue growth (50% in 2016) and high profits have pushed its stock value into the stratosphere. At present Facebook is outperforming all of its major social media competition.

WHEREAS, California Government Code (GC) section 65858 authorizes local governments to adopt, after a noticed public hearing, an ordinance to extend an interim urgency ordinance if the extension ordinance contains legislative findings that there is a current and immediate threat to the public health, safety and/or welfare; and

WHEREAS, the purpose of this urgency Ordinance is to extend the moratorium to continue to protect against the current and immediate threats that marijuana operations, activities and uses pose to the public health, safety and welfare as a result of the approval of the AUMA, and to prevent adverse impacts that those operations, activities and uses may have on nearby properties and residents; and WHEREAS, the AUMA allows local governments to continue prohibiting or regulating commercial operations, activities and uses relating to marijuana, including, but not limited to, prohibiting medical and nonmedical marijuana businesses; enacting and enforcing reasonable regulations relating to the personal cultivation and processing of marijuana indoors, and prohibiting the personal

cultivation and processing of marijuana outdoors; and prohibiting the possession, smoking and ingestion of marijuana and marijuana products within buildings owned, leased or occupied by a local government agency, among other places; and

WHEREAS, the City currently only prohibits medical marijuana dispensaries, whether fixed or mobile, but does not expressly prohibit or regulate commercial operations of nonmedical marijuana; and WHEREAS, the City currently prohibits the cultivation and processing of marijuana as a business activity and land use, but does not regulate the personal cultivation and processing of marijuana; and

WHEREAS, the City currently prohibits smoking in certain public places, but does not expressly prohibit the possession, smoking and ingestion of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, including within buildings owned, leased or occupied by the City and;

WHEREAS, it is necessary for the City to extend the moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places to provide additional time for the City to further study the potential impacts that marijuana operations, activities and uses may have on the public health, safety and welfare; research and craft appropriate regulations and possible amendments to the provisions of the San Marcos Municipal Code (SMMC) and the Zoning Ordinance governing marijuana dispensaries, the cultivation and processing of marijuana indoors and outdoors, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places; and to ensure that regulations relating to marijuana operations, activities and uses can be implemented in such a way as to minimize any harmful effects they might have on the City’s residents, as well as nearby businesses and property owners. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City of San Marcos specifically, does ordain as follows: Section 1.Recitals. The foregoing recitals are true and correct.

Section 2.Findings and Purpose. The adoption of this urgency Ordinance to extend the moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places is necessary for the immediate protection of the public health, safety and welfare. Pursuant to Government Code section 65858, the City Council finds and declares that: (a) The United States Supreme Court has continuously found that marijuana,

• Page 15 • November 24, 2016

including medical marijuana, violates Federal law under the CSA. In 2001, the Court held in United States v. Oakland Cannabis Buyers Cooperative, et al. that there was no “medical necessity” defense under the CSA, and therefore a medical marijuana dispensary could be enjoined from distribution and manufacturing. In 2005, the Court held in Gonzalez v. Raich that the Commerce Clause authorizes Congress to prohibit the cultivation or use of marijuana for medical purposes permitted by California law. The significance of the Raich decision is that Federal law enforcement agents may continue to enforce Federal drug laws against Californians who cultivate, use or dispense marijuana; and (b) Cities that have permitted medical or nonmedical marijuana dispensaries to operate in their jurisdictions, in California and nationally, have reported experiencing an overconcentration of such land uses; armed burglaries, robberies and thefts occurring at the dispensaries; an increase in other criminal activity in the vicinity of these dispensaries; persons under 21 years of age, drug addicts and documented gang members loitering at the dispensaries; dispensary customers using marijuana and then driving under the influence of marijuana; dispensaries selling illegal drugs other than marijuana; dispensaries selling marijuana and marijuana products to persons under 21 years of age; loss of trade for commercial businesses located near dispensaries; excessive energy use; and faulty and dangerous electrical and plumbing problems at the dispensaries; and

(c) Many of the violent crimes reported at marijuana dispensaries involve the use of weapons. In June 2016, a security guard of a marijuana dispensary in Aurora, Colorado, where nonmedical marijuana is legal and an influx of dispensaries has occurred as a result of the legalization of marijuana, was shot and killed during a robbery of the dispensary. That month, the owner of a medical marijuana dispensary in Walnut Park, California shot and wounded two armed men during a robbery attempt at his dispensary. A man was also shot and killed by a gang member at a Bakersfield medical marijuana dispensary in June of this year; and (d) On October 25, 2016, a marijuana delivery driver was pistol-whipped and robbed by two purported customers during a medical marijuana delivery in the Grantville neighborhood of San Diego. According to the San Diego Police Department, the victim suffered serious cuts on his head and a brain bleed when a handgun was used to repeatedly club the victim’s head. At lease one gunshot round went off, but did not hit anyone before the robbers escaped. On June 17, 2016, a delivery driver for a dispensary was robbed at gunpoint by a purported customer during a medical marijuana delivery in the Sherman Heights neighborhood of San Diego. On January 29, 2016, another dispensary delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint by two purported customers while making a medical marijuana delivery in the Pleasant Hill neighborhood of San Diego. According to the San Diego Police Department, the robbers stole approximately

$8,000 worth of marijuana products. On December 1, 2015, two dispensary delivery drivers were beaten, zapped with an electric stun gun and robbed of over one pound of marijuana by three purported customers during a medical marijuana delivery.

(e) In the past, a number of medical marijuana dispensaries have attempted to operate in the City in violation of the SMMC and the Zoning Ordinance. The City pursued successful code enforcement actions against those dispensaries. Although a prohibition of medical marijuana dispensaries is already addressed under the SMMC, if the AUMA becomes effective and in the absence of a moratorium, individuals might apply for City permits, licenses or other entitlements to operate nonmedical marijuana dispensaries, and the City would be required to process and issue the requested approvals, unless some clear violation of the SMMC or Zoning Ordinance exists on other grounds; and (f) Between 2005 and 2006, a marijuana dispensary operating in San Marcos that obtained a business license to operate as a “nutritional supplement store” was burglarized several times and the operators failed to report the breakins to law enforcement; and

(g) California courts have upheld various local regulations governing or prohibiting marijuana cultivation and processing. In County of Tulare v. Nunes (2013), the Court of Appeal held that the CUA and the MMPA do not require Tulare County to define growing marijuana as an acceptable agricultural use of land. (215 Cal.App.4th 1188). Also in 2013, in Browne v. County of Tehama, the Court of Appeal found the MMPA did not preempt a local ordinance declaring that any cultivation of marijuana was a nuisance that could be abated. (213 Cal.App.4th 704). In Maral v. City of Live Oak, also decided in 2013, the Court of Appeal held that the CUA and the MMPA do not preempt a local agency’s police power to prohibit the cultivation of all marijuana within the jurisdiction. (221 Cal.App.4th 975); and (h) Several jurisdictions throughout the State have reported adverse effects and nuisance impacts relating to marijuana cultivation and processing, including but not limited to, the strong and potentially noxious odors associated with mature marijuana plants; impacts to the environment, including spraying of chemicals and toxins (i.e. fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, rodenticides and insecticides) at grow sites and and the potential for storm water runoff and groundwater impacts, greenhouse gas emissions, excessive energy use, generator use producing localized noise, irresponsible and significant water use (the California Department of Fish & Wildlife reported that researchers estimate each plant of marijuana consumes six gallons of water each day, which is problematic since California is currently in a multi-year drought), and dangerous fire hazards; damage to buildings surrounding the cultivation area; problems associated with mold, fungus and pests; abandonment of trash and waste once plants are harvested; proximity of children to areas under cultivation; visibility of grows from the public right-of-way; and an

increase in crime, including robberies, theft and trespassing; and

(i) On September 27, 2016, a battalion fire chief was killed, and twenty others were injured, including nine firefighters, six police officers, three gas utility workers, and two civilians, when a marijuanagrowing operation inside a home exploded in the Bronx neighborhood of New York. (j) As an urgency measure to protect and preserve the public health, safety and welfare, California Government Code section 65858 authorizes local governments to extend an interim urgency ordinance prohibiting any operations, activities and uses that the local government is considering, studying or intends to study within a reasonable time; and

(k) It is necessary for the City to extend the moratorium prohibiting the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places to provide additional time for the City to further study the potential impacts that these operations, activities and uses may have on the public health, safety and welfare as a result of the approval of the AUMA; research and craft appropriate regulations and possible amendments to the provisions of the SMMC and the Zoning Ordinance governing marijuana operations, activities and uses for the City Council to consider; and ensure that regulations relating to marijuana operations, activities and uses can be implemented in such a way as to minimize any harmful effects they might have on the City’s residents, as well as nearby businesses and property owners; and

(l) This is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines because there is no potential for it to result in a physical change in the environment, either directly or indirectly. In the event this Ordinance is found to be subject to CEQA, it is exempt from CEQA pursuant to the exemption contained in CEQA Guidelines section 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility of a significant effect on the environment. Section 3.Extension of Moratorium. For the reasons described above, the City Council has determined it is necessary to extend interim urgency Ordinance No. 20161432 pursuant to GC section 65858 to continue the moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places. Section 4.Consistency with the SMMC. Any provision of the SMMC that is inconsistent with any provision of this urgency Ordinance, to the extent of such inconsistencies and no further, is hereby repealed or modified only to the extent

necessary to effect the provisions of this urgency Ordinance. The City Council expressly finds that SMMC Chapter 5.54 and Title 20 of the SMMC are not inconsistent with this urgency Ordinance.

Section 5.Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this urgency Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this urgency Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted the urgency Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional. Section 6.Effective Date. This Ordinance shall take effect immediately upon adoption as an urgency measure. The moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places established under interim urgency Ordinance No. 2016-1432 is hereby extended for a period of ten (10) months and fifteen (15) days from and after the date Ordinance No. 2016-1432 would have otherwise expired, unless prior to its expiration, following a noticed public hearing in accordance with GC section 65090, the City Council extends this Ordinance pursuant to GC section 65858. Section7. Publication. Within fifteen (15) days following the adoption of this urgency Ordinance, the City Clerk shall publish this urgency Ordinance, or the title thereof, as a summary as required by State law.
