Volume 49 - No. 48
By Friedrich Gomez
Why is it that the megacelebrities in our rearview mirror seem so much bigger, more legendary, and even vastly more talented than movie stars, singers, and dancers today? Perhaps we’re blinded by stardust in our eyes as we wistfully peer through rose-tinted glasses, backward in time.
Perhaps we succumb to a sentimental journey whenever we The Paper - 760.747.7119
watch late-night re-runs of Hollywood’s Golden Movie Era.
Is all this affection for yesteryear’s entertainers merely an exaggerated distortion in our nostalgic minds? Were they truly that great? Even greater than our current crop of entertainers? In the estimation of many entertainment historians and critics, these past performers were, indeed, unmatched super stars of the first-magni-
tude, and most deserving of their legendary status.
Today, do we truly have anyone who even remotely approaches the level of dance artistry as showcased by Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly? They were, arguably, the greatest genre dancers in entertainment history. Their filmed dance sequences were so advanced, extraordinary, and precision-perfect that even after three-quarters of a century, and viewing them through the prism of time,

they still cause us to shake our heads, speechless and thunderstruck, with no adequate words to describe them.
Astaire and Kelly remain, to this day, the very personification of dance artistry which all other dancers, of their genre, are measured. As such, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly are, by themselves, the very embodiment of greatness and, therefore, their only frame of reference is themselves.
There are those who say that even the music back then,

seems to shame us by comparison.
Rat Pack leader, Frank Sinatra, often sang against the backdrop of the Swing and Big Band Era, composed of juggernauts such as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Count Basie.
Today’s music and lyrics, compared to the Rat Pack era, still seem lightyears apart. Almost as if produced by two entirely different species of beings, who live galaxies away from each other. For example, the music and lyrics by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein, George Gershwin, and Cole Porter, adorned songs on the lips of singers, as well as in movies and Broadway plays in the same manner that the genius of Rembrandt and Michelangelo adorned museums. Songs and music, as with paintings, were often masterpieces.
Many erudite film scholars further attest that neither do we have actors today that, genuinely, have that elusive star quality of yesteryear, with the “total package” of acting genius, and “undefinable mystique,” which translates into movie magic on the silver screen. No one, it is alleged, even remotely approaches the mystique and magic on film as a Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy

Cagney, Judy Garland, Ingrid Bergman, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, or Sir Lawrence Olivier, who is considered on every actor’s survey poll today as – by far -- the greatest thespian who ever breathed air.
And many have said that even our best line-up of popular singers today cannot even stand in the shadows of past vocal giants of yesteryear, such as the immortal Ella Fitzgerald, the great Lena Horne, “Sassy” Sarah Vaughan, who is also known as “The Divine One,” or anyone who compares to a young Judy Garland. Or Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, or the casual crooners who made vocal gymnastics appear deceptively easy and smooth-as-molasses, such as Perry Como, Bing Crosby, and Dean Martin. Or the “Golden One,” known as Sammy Davis, Jr., whose kaleidoscope of talents refused to be one-dimensional, as he epitomized the ultimate songand-dance man, with an arsenal of skills embracing singing, acting, dancing, musicianship, and showmanship, all thrown-in for good measure, earning him the envious title of “The Greatest AllAround Entertainer” of alltime. A towering assessment, with virtually no respected entertainment critic, then or now, in disagreement with that mighty mantle. Sammy Davis, Jr. is appropriately described as “inimitable,”
which world dictionaries – even in different languages – basically define as: “So good or unique as to be impossible to copy.”
The ensuing “Rat Pack” show business phenomenon of the 1960s era, comprised (primarily) of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr., was so extraordinary in its overall impact, that the world of show business has never seen anything like it, before or since its glorious reign. THE “RAT PACK” LEGACY REVOLUTIONED WORLD OF SHOW BUSINESS. It is virtually impossible for today’s generation to fully realize the true impact – let alone feel the palpable excitement – that the Rat Pack had during its heyday.
In a world today where the words “revolutionary” and “trend-setting” are casually thrown about in reckless fashion, these adjectives – if anything – fall short in describing the Rat Pack’s influence, not only here – but globally. Often, when one of the Rat Pack members was performing in Las Vegas, the rest of the Pack would often, unpredictably, show up for an impromptu show – all together – which always ignited highlycharged excitement from the audiences.
It was enough that just one member of the Rat Pack was,

Also, it became ‘fashionable’ for Hollywood’s biggest celebrities and political VIPs to gather together as part of the Rat Pack audience, giving added lustre and excitement for regular spectators and movie fans. Such a luminous gathering of notables often made headline news on the world’s leading entertainment papers, and even brought foreign tourists flying-in to witness and partake of – what the Press Corps called -- the “Party of the Century.” It must be kept in mind that the names: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr., back in the 1960s were well-recognized, here and abroad, where their records, movies, and images were omnipresent and their respective rabid fan club members on a short leash. Soon, every impromptu Rat Pack Las Vegas show was SOLD OUT. Well in advance. The giant Las Vegas Strip marquees in front of famous hotels at which a single Rat Pack member might be appear-

She could hear him through the door and he said that he was running late and would be down shortly, so she went back to the dining area. An hour later he still hadn't arrived so she went back up towards his room but found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a heck of a time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right. She told him she was going to call an ambulance but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast So she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast.
When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up even the first stair step so they called an ambulance for him.
A couple hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing.

Tourists everywhere, from across the United States to Japan, London, and all points in between, began to flood into Las Vegas. TOURISTS OFTEN HAD TO SLEEP IN THEIR CARS. Such excitement electrified audiences everywhere, resulting in SOLD OUT signs in quick fashion. The influx of tourists often resulted in not only these shows to be quickly sold out, but, for the entire Las Vegas Strip to be sold out as well, as tourists poured-in at record numbers, filling virtually every hotel within miles.
Crowds of people who were turned-away from sold-out performances resulted in countless people sleeping in their cars, or hotel lobbies, when they were unable to find rooms to stay in.
Rat Pack performances were evaluated by the print media as being of “unprecedented value” to the city of Las Vegas, because the Pack always created, as reported: “A flood of high-rollers, wealthy gamblers (domestic and foreign) who would routinely leave substantial fortunes at the various casinos.” (Note: Today, the highest percentage of Las

Vegas “high rollers” continue to come from foreign ports, viz. Asia. As reported by The New York Times: “While the number of Japanese tourists visiting Las Vegas is still 10 times that of Chinese, the increase in high rollers from China and Hong Kong – and the fortunes they are willing to gamble – have captured the imaginations of Las Vegas’ Gaming Industry.”) The international popularity of Rat Pack fans in Asia, the Orient, and Europe even affected the way the Rat Pack’s 1960 film, “Ocean’s 11,” was marketed in specific regions, to better satisfy die-hard fans. In Germany, for example, in the “dubbed” translations, the name of Frank Sinatra’s character in the movie, “Danny Ocean,” was changed to “Frankie” Ocean to better appeal to the recognition for loyal German fans who often fanatically referred to him (in English) as, simply, “Frankie.”
Likewise, in America, his wide recognition was readily identified with just one word: “Sinatra.” Rat Pack fan clubs numbered in the thousands across the United States during the 1960s. Even in Japan, Sinatra had rabid fans. As early as April 21, 1962, he had performed an open-air concert at Hibiya Park, at Chiyoda City, in Tokyo, Japan, to raise money for Japanese children’s charities. It was a most honor-

able thing to do for the Japanese nation. The Japanese people would never forget Sinatra’s noble, humanitarian gesture on behalf of their children. His fan clubs spread across Asia and the Orient. He would perform sold-out concerts to wildly-excited spectators in Japan, Hong Kong, Egypt, Greece, Monaco, Israel, Spain, England, France, Mexico, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and other regions, eventually leading American President Gerald Ford to award Sinatra the “International Man of the Year Award” for his past charitable achievements on behalf of the world’s suffering, starving, and dying children.
Unknown to many fans today, Sinatra became ruthless in his fight to raise awareness for children’s charities. His commitment to charity performances around the world was for the sole purpose of helping the little children, often starving, and in need of medical intervention to stay alive. His schedule was so ferocious that it pushed him to near-exhaustion and complete collapse. On stage, in Jerusalem, he quipped: “When I arrive home, I’m going to check myself into a hospital.” Sinatra even performed in front of the Egyptian pyramids, raising more than $500,000 (equivalent to almost

In 1961 and 1962 he went to Mexico to perform for Mexican charities. He would eventually perform in over 17 different countries, including Israel, where he was bestowed the precious “Scopus Award” at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel. And at the huge Maracana Stadium, normally reserved for World Cup Soccer Games in Brazil, Sinatra broke records for the “Largest live paid audience ever recorded for a solo performer.” Even in the more remote places on Earth, Sinatra’s name was often repeated and spread through word of mouth, in often unrecognized cultures. In South Africa, he was awarded the highest honor, “The Order of the Leopard,” by Kgosi Manyane Mangope, leader of the Bantustan (homeland) of Bophuthatswana. Sinatra was even made an “honorary tribal chief.” Sinatra’s resume takes one’s breath away. He sang with world-renowned opera singer, Luciano Pavarotti, and on another occasion Sinatra made the great Civil Rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr., break down and openly weep in the audience, when Sinatra sang his own stunning version of

On Nov. 18th at 6:08 p.m., Officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to the 7100 block of Corintia Street for a report of a single vehicle collision. Upon arrival, officers located a silver Mercedes CLS 55 that had collided into a tree and an unconscious male occupant. Preliminary reports advise that a male driving the Mercedes at a high rate of speed, hit a curb and lost control of the vehicle, ultimately crashing into a tree. The driver of the Mercedes has been identified as a 47 year-old male out of Carlsbad. The male was transported to a local area hospital for severe injuries. It is unknown at this time whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the collision. The investigation is ongoing. If anyone was witness to, or has any information regarding the collision, please contact Accident Investigator, Corporal Travis Anderson at 760-931-2208 or firstname.lastname@example.org Marijuana Dispensary in Vista

Man About Town
The Real History. Honest. Really. I Wouldn't Kid You
Growing Up . . .
I grew up in a place called Omaha, Nebraska. The city was named after a local Indian, Barney Omaha, in recognition of his many contributions to modern day society which included his building of, and dedication to the city, of both Fontanelle Hotel and Fontenelle Park, named after a distant cousin who had earned many merit badges for scalping. But that was long before my time. I lived in Omaha long after the tents and wikiups and hogans of the Indian were gone. We lived in a very hoity
to go more with the illegal sellers than the “approved” sellers.
There are two licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in Vista but nearby storefronts, illegally selling the green weed are outstripping the legal dispensaries in sales, sometimes to to the point of causing traffic jams or parking problems? Why?
Cost is one factor. The illegal vendors don’t pay taxes . . .which can account for 30% or more of the purchase price when bought at a city licensed vendor.
Tradition is another reason. Buyers have done business for years with people they know and trust. They like certain brands of pot that perhaps the city vendors don’t offer. And, dealing with an “illegal” vendor means you don’t have to go through the process of applying for and receiving a medical prescription for pot. You just go in, check out the merchandise, buy what you want and walk out. At the “legal” cannabis dispensaries you have to present a card showing a doctor’s authorization for medical marijuans.
“Cease and Desist” orders are simply ignored by the illegal vendors. They quickly form a new company with a different name and laugh at law enforcement and its feeble attempt to stop them.
toity part of Omaha called Benson, a northwestern suburb. Benson also had a high school which some very creative person had named Benson High School. Being in the hoity toity part of Omaha it attracted a great many rich kids. My family and I were not rich, but middle class. My valet, for example, was not particularly well trained, not even knowing how to mix a decent martini (sniff). I only had one valet, most Benson High School students had at least two. Unlike many other of my fellow students, I did not have an entourage. Couldn’t afford it, being of modest means.
I recall many a morning when my baby blue T-Bird would face the daunting challenge of climbing the steep hill on Maple Street from about 69th to 63rd, before finally reaching that lovely level stretch of land through downtown Benson. I have to compliment my chaufeurr, Nicky, for the always comfortable, sometimes very scenic drives. I always enjoyed viewing the colorful Benson Baptist Church (where I was later to marry a Countess from Scotland, the lovely Mary (sorry, don’t quite recall her last name. I’m bad on names). I also recall the excitement as I passed Kremer Funeral Home, the Benson
San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond said in an emailed statement last week that he is “completely opposed to illegal marijuana shops, especially with the recent uptick in deaths due to illicit drugs.” About one week after the statement, the cat-and-mouse game came to a head at 1526 S. Santa Fe Ave. Thursday when deputies again shut the location down, seizing 80 pounds of marijuana products, between $7,000 and $10,000 in cash and citing six employees for marijuana possession for sale and operation of an illegal marijuana business, both misdemeanors.
Thus far, law authorities are unable to simply seize the property because “there is no authority to seize a building for a code compliance violation.”

Arriving at Benson High School, I was met every morning by a smiling John “Pinky” Aronson, the Vice Principal, who would open the door to my T-Bird, shake my hand, wave at Nicky, and welcome me to the school. I remember one day I suggested to my fellow classmates that we all honor “Pinky” Aronson by dressing in completely pink clothing. I wore pink trousers, pink socks, a pink shirt, white belt and white shoes. I was a sight to behold. The entire school turned out in pink that day. Mr. Aronson, I’m sure, was amused.
As we walked together up the sidewalk leading to the building I was often approached by other students who did not have transportation and had to walk to school. They would compliment me on my T-Bird and mention how it would be nice if, maybe sometime, I could give them a ride, seeing as how I was going in the same direction. I always made it a

Do let me give it some thought and get back to you!” (I have always found it to be a good idea to treat those of a different social class kindly. Even though a majority of us were middle class, some of these forsaken kids didn’t have so much as a valet to their name. I tried to brighten their lives by being kind to them and favoring them with, at the very least, with my wonderfully contented smile).
I soon joined the rest of those from my social class and we would tell marvelously funny stories, describe our valet’s hilarious shortcomings and/or great accomplishments. Being of modest means, my valet, Nicky, had to double as my chauffeur. Several times I thought of giving Nicky notice but she was such a strikingly lovely creature that I found it hard to part with her. Besides, she was often of great comfort to me in times of sorrow, like when our cook would forget both Brie and a sufficient amount of caviar in my box lunch she had prepared for me daily.

Likewise, Rat Pack member, Dean Martin, had fan clubs that encircled the globe. He even released a very rare Sony Fan Club LP Vinyl Japanese record, simply titled: “Dean Martin.” That’s all his Asian fans needed to read. As with Sinatra, Dean Martin was deeply loved in Asia and the Orient with die-hard fan clubs extending throughout Europe. All Rat Pack members exemplified what was considered American “cool” on stage. Even Elvis Presley was said to be a fan of Dean Martin, and patterned his performances of “Love Me Tender” after Martin’s relaxed, vocal styling. Other members, such as Sammy Davis, Jr., had played to capacity crowds across Europe. Turn-away crowds clamored for additional concerts.
As individuals, they were already explosive on stage with capacity crowds around the planet. Together, on the same stage, as members of the Rat Pack – their combined talents shot to new indescribable, stratospheric heights, causing one entertainment historian to write: “Together, the Rat Pack ruled the World of Entertainment.

Together on Stage: MaryChapin Carpenter & Sawn Colvin at CCAE Folk artists Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin take the stage together at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE), on Thursday, December 5, at 7:30pm in the Concert Hall. Mary Chapin Carpenter began her career as a folk-influenced performer in the Washington, D.C. area, but found favor on country radio in the ’80s and ’90s, taking her emotionally intelligent songs to a mass audience. Beginning with 1987’s Hometown Girl, she wrote and sang in the contemporary singer/songwriter vein, but moved into more country-leaning material with 1990’s Shooting Straight in the Dark, which included the hit single, “Down at the Twist and Shout.” In 2001 Carpenter gradually began to step away from commercial country, returning to her roots in contemporary folk music. In an era when female singersongwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slowrelease works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor. In the nearly 30 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has won three GRAMMY Awards, released twelve albums, written a critically acclaimed memoir, maintained a non-stop national
THE RAT PACK BEGINNING. Several versions persist today as to the beginnings of the Rat Pack, as well as its membership and the genesis of its name.
The most notable version relates that a group of entertainers often visited the home of actor Humphrey Bogart during the 1950s. Bogart’s wife, actress Lauren Bacall, after seeing her husband and celebrity friends return from a fun night in Las Vegas, said the paraphrased words to the group: “You look like a goddamn rat pack!” This story seems to have merit, since Humphrey Bogart’s only son, Stephen Bogart, confirms it. According to Stephen, the original Rat Pack members were his father, Humphrey Bogart (holding the title, Rat in Charge of Public Relations), Frank Sinatra (Pack Master), Judy Garland (Rat First VicePresident), Sid Luft (Rat Cage Master), Swifty Lazar (Rat Recording Secretary and Treasurer), Nathaniel Benchley (Rat Historian), and members: David Niven, Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracey, George Cukor, Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, and Jimmy Van Heusen.
In his autobiography “The Moon’s a Balloon,” British actor, David Niven, confirms that the Rat Pack (originally) included him but not Dean Martin or Sammy Davis, Jr. and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures and created a remarkable canon of work.

During the earliest formation of the Rat Pack, Humphrey Bogart’s wife, Lauren Bacall, became known to members as the “Den Mother.” The 1960s version of the Rat Pack extended to Frank Sinatra’s chums: Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. Others, such as Marilyn Monroe, Angie Dickinson, dancer Juliet Prowse, Buddy Green, and Shirley MacLaine, were often referred to as “Rat Pack Mascots.”
Later in time, comedian Don Rickles wrote: “I never received an official Rat Pack membership card, but Frank made me feel part of the fun.” As with Rickles, visiting Rat Pack members included: Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner, Nat King Cole, Robert Mitchum, Elizabeth Taylor, Janet Leigh, Tony Curtis, Mickey Rooney, Lena Horne, Jerry Lewis, Cesar Romero, and others.
The nickname “The Rat Pack” became a popular term used by journalists at the time, as well as ‘outsiders’ (non-members), and today it remains the legacy-name of the group.
Although the title “Pack Rat” was clearly used in its earliest formation as cited above, e.g. Frank Sinatra (Pack Master), Humphrey Bogart (Rat in Charge of Public Relations), etc., the alternate names often
www.ArtCenter.org. Christian Children’s Chorus – will present their Christmas Concert this year at San Marcos Lutheran Church, 3419 Grand Ave., San Marcos, on Friday, December 6th, at 7pm. Admission is $10; and children age 10 and under are free. The Christian Children’s Chorus was founded by Nancy Shirley five years ago to offer children an opportunity to learn and sing in concert the best quality Christian literature while learning the basic skills of vocal production and music theory. Since many churches do not offer children’s choirs, Nancy felt the need and desire to form this non-denominal choir to create this choral experience. Nancy has taught public school choirs in elementary, middle and high schools and in many churches She holds a B.S. in music education and a Master’s degree in choral conducting. Our spring semester begins in January and new members are welcome to join. Contact Nancy Shirley, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
The organization consists of four divisions. The Cherub Choir is for children kindergarten through third grade. The Caroler Choir includes some third graders and extends through 6th-7th grades. These two choirs meet weekly and are non-auditioned. The Belles, teen girls, is by audition and also meets weekly. After two years parents of the children asked for an adult ensemble so they could also be in a choir, so we now have an Adult Chorus, non-auditioned, which also meets weekly. These choirs have members from cities throughout North County as well as Santee and Valley Center. They have given Christmas and Spring Concerts throughout churches and concert venues in the area. The Belles have sung Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” among other challenging works and have been featured twice on our local Choristers

used (especially after Bogart’s death in 1957) were: “The Summit” or “The Clan.”
EVEN U. S. PRESIDENT JFK SUCCUMBED TO THE RAT PACK PHENOMENON. Even President John F. Kennedy became actively enamored with the global popularity of the Rat Pack. Rat Pack member, Peter Lawford, was a brother-in-law of the president, and Sinatra dubbed JFK with the title, “BrotherIn-Lawford.”
President Kennedy often spent time with Sinatra and other Rat Pack members whenever he visited Las Vegas. Whenever JFK was among the Pack group, the members affectionately referred to themselves as “The Jack Pack.”
JFK-RAT PACK FRIENDSHIP ENDS IN CONTROVERSY. The Rat Pack members actively played a role in campaigning for Kennedy and the Democrats, appearing at the July 1960 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles. Peter Lawford even asked Sinatra if he would have Kennedy as a special guest at Sinatra’s Palm Springs house in March of 1962. Sinatra accepted, and went to great lengths of even having a special helipad (helicopter landing area) constructed for the president’s intended stay.

My wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, "Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?" He just ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an "a**hole." He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires. So my wife called him a "s*ithead." He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets.
This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote. He finally finished, sneered at us and walked away. Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home.

Nutmeg Street is not immune to speed or DUI’s as a few years ago a motorist drove the car up a front yard embankment of my friend on Nutmeg Street.

Kudos to Charlie’s Restaurant
My wife, Marge, and I always went to Coco’s on Valley Pkwy for breakfast, after her monthly bloodwork. Our waitresses, Diane and Karen were so friendly and had our orders, almost before we sat down.
Well, needless to say, Coco’s closed, so we went all around Escondido, checking various eateries. We tried all except Charlies. Hadn’t been to Charlies in many years.
Finally, we looked at each other and said, “We’re not happy with ..,so, let’s try Charlies.” We hit the “Pot of Gold!” Charlie’s Veggie Omelet with fruit (split between us), English muffin, large crangrape juice, side order of wheat toast, and our bottomless coffee (for toast dunking), is better than heaven-almost. We’ve met Charlie, his son-in-law? (Bill), our waitresses (Don’t know their names yet), and, of course, Juan. We now go for breakfast, usually more than once a month, because Charlie’s is “awesome”…and it doesn’t “break our ‘retired’ bank”!

However, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy advised his brother to sever his ties with Frank Sinatra because of the entertainer’s association with Mafia figures, such as Sam Giancana, who was mobster boss of the Chicago Mafia Outfit (from 1957 to 1966). As the result of Robert Kennedy’s concern, the president cancelled his guest-plans with Sinatra. Instead, the president chose to stay at Bing Crosby’s estate. The brokenplans, in addition to choosing Sinatra’s singing rival, Bing Crosby, to be his house guest instead, infuriated Sinatra to no end. The snub by JFK so angered Sinatra that he, reportedly, picked up a sledgehammer and began destroying the heliport he had installed for the presidential visit. Sinatra blamed Peter Lawford and never had a good word for Lawford or the president, again. Sinatra even Republican.
According to Frank Sinatra’s own daughter, Nancy, she wrote of her dad’s great affection for the president, which now soured: “His love for Kennedy was so strong. JFK was his friend. For the patriotic American dreamer, this was the ultimate compliment: The President of the United States was his friend.” As reported widely in the press: “Both Sinatra and JFK were handsome, magnetic forces. Both were avid partiers and womanizers, and they shared similar takes on liberal politics. It didn’t take long for the pair to strike up a very close friendship.”
JFK was the glamorous, rising star of the Democratic Party. He personified youth and vigor, and embodied ‘political cool’ in the same way that Frank Sinatra embodied ‘cool’ on stage, with the rest of the Rat Pack. There is even film footage of Kennedy visiting the Rat Pack movie set during the shooting of Ocean’s 11. It was now, a bitter memory.
THE FILMING OF “OCEAN’S 11.” Warner Brother’s release of “Ocean’s 11” in 1960 starred five members of the Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. Actor Cesar Romero (a “visiting” Rat Pack status member only) also starred in the film. The plot revolves around Danny Ocean (Frank Sinatra) who gathers a group of his former World War II compatriots to pull off the ultimate Las Vegas heist: the eleven friends plan to rob five Las Vegas casi-

Understanding the Public Utilities Commission
California has many powerful state agencies that impact the lives of millions. One of the most powerful, but perhaps less known or understood, is the California Public Utilities Commission. The CPUC was created in 1911 after a constitutional amendment was approved by voters to reorganize the Railroad Commission, which was established decades earlier to regulate the state’s powerful railroad industry. In 1912, the Legislature passed the Public Utilities Act, expanding Railroad Commission authority to regulate utilities such as gas, electric and telephone companies. In 1946, voters approved renaming the Railroad Commission the California Public Utilities Commission. The CPUC has sole authority to establish rates charged by investorowned utilities under its authority through its “revenue requirement,” based on the costs of maintaining, operating and financing utility operations. This requirement is the basis for determining rates paid by customers. CPUC responsibility extends beyond utility rates. For example, the Safety and Enforcement Division oversees safety requirements for rail crossings, private carriers including charter bus lines, limousines, and
companies like Uber and Lyft.
The CPUC’s five commissioners, who must be approved by the Senate, are appointed by the Governor to staggered six-year terms. Currently, three of the five commissioners were appointed by Governor Brown, and the remaining two, including President Marybel Batjer, were appointed by Governor Newsom. CPUC authority does not extend to government-run utilities and common carriers. Many transit agencies, such as the North County Transit District or the Riverside Transit Agency are not regulated by the CPUC, though they must follow certain CPUC regulations.
The CPUC also has authority over many state programs and initiatives including the California Solar Initiative, greenhouse gas emission standards, zero net energy goals for new construction, and many more.
If you have questions or concerns about utility-related issues, visit the CPUC’s website at: https://www.cpuc.ca.gov/ Assembly Republican 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

world. On behalf of my entire District 5 team, I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving
This is always a great time to reflect on the past year and a time to start looking ahead.
I am grateful this Thanksgiving to have all of my kids under our roof, even if it’s just for the day. It is one of the only times of the year we all get together, so we have a lot of catching up to do. We will talk about new jobs and maybe the football game on TV, but one thing we won’t mention is politics. While national politics is at a boiling point and both sides seem to want to sink this country, I’m grateful that won’t be the discussion at our dinner table. I am grateful for all those that still have to work on Thanksgiving including our law enforcement, firefighters, service men and women and everyone else protecting our city, state, and nation.
I am grateful for our beautiful District 5 communities from the coast of Carlsbad to all the way out to the desert of Borrego Springs. I am grateful for our wonderful constituents who have helped me immensely in my first year as Supervisor. And most importantly I am grateful to live in the greatest Country in the

nos on one night, New Year’s Eve, with military precision. When Sinatra first heard of the movie plot about holdingup three Las Vegas casinos in one night, he quipped: “Forget the movie. Let’s pull the job!” While film critics had mixed reviews about Ocean’s 11 upon its initial release, the audiences were much more highly receptive to the movie. The film became the 8th highest grossing film of 1960.
The Rat Pack appeared in other popular films of the day, such as “Sergeants 3” released in 1962 and starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. In 1964 came the movie release of “Robin and the 7 Hoods” (in this last Rat Pack movie, Bing Crosby replaced Peter Lawford, who had a ‘falling out’ with Sinatra over the nixed JFK stay at Sinatra’s Palm Springs compound, previously mentioned).
LAS VEGAS ‘COLOR BARRIER’ BROKEN BY FRANK SINATRA. During both the time when the celebrated Rat Pack dominated the Las Vegas Strip and starred in their own movies, there were still glitches to overcome. According to Frank Sinatra, Jr. on the DVD Commentary, Sammy Davis, Jr. was forced to stay at a “colored only” hotel during the filming of “Ocean’s 11” because Las Vegas would not allow blacks to stay at the (major) Las Vegas hotels, even though Sammy appeared on stage with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and other Pack members at the Sands Hotel.
This all changed when Frank Sinatra confronted the Las Vegas casino and hotel owners and demanded that Sammy be admitted as an equal, and as a hotel guest. In this specific scenario, Sinatra broke Las Vegas’ ‘unofficial’ color barrier. Sinatra would forever be embroiled in controversy. On January 27, 1961, he played a benefit show at Carnegie Hall for Martin Luther King, Jr. and led his fellow Rat Pack members in boycotting hotels and casinos that refused entry to black patrons and performers. WHICH COMEDIAN BELOW APPEARED WITH THE RAT PACK IN “OCEAN’S 11”? A. Jimmy Durante B. Jerry Lewis C. Red Skelton

and murmur soft things in my ear. I always felt so much better; sometimes, to the point of skipping school for several hours to be with Nicky, the more to enjoy her comforting.
In late morning I would always head for gym class, presided over by Art Harris, our football coach. Mr. Harris was a strapping 3′ tall but he was a human dynamo, often running around in circles, clapping his hands and yelling, “Let’s go! Let’s go!” to no one in particular. I was very fond of Mr. Harris, however. I suppose it might have been because I went to him one day, very sad, and told him my favorite pet rabbit, which I had called “Bunny” had passed away. I suggested to Mr. Harris that we might memorialize Bunny by naming the school, and in particular, its football team, the Benson High School Bunnies. Mr. Harris slapped his thighs, and exclaimed, “that’s a wonderful idea! It shall be done!”
And so, to this day, members who attended, and who still attend, my alma mater, are known as The Benson High School Bunnies.
All good things, however, must come to an end. After four years of absolute bliss, my high school days came to an end. I graduated (flipped my tassle, as we say) and went on to a brilliantly successful career in business and also became a highly successful and adored international spy. That, too, is all behind me now. Nicky is still with me. She stays in the spare bedroom here at the Madison Mansion, still chauffeurs me about town, still mixes me my martinis, still performs as a valet, and is always there to offer me comforting words, thoughts and deeds whenever mean ol’ Evelyn says or does something to wound my sensitive ego. Mrs. Madison recognizes that Nicky is simply my valet, nothing more, (at least, that’s what she believes) someone with whom I would find living life to be particularly difficult.
Nicky was even with me during my exciting and adventuresome years as an international spy. But that, as we say, is another story.
Buy me a drink sometime . . . maybe I’ll tell you. (Some parts, however, are still classified. Those parts would take two drinks).
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
‘A Most Dangerous Man’
He is best-remembered as Scarlet O’Hara’s unrequited love, and the illusive Scarlet Pimpernel, but to Nazi Germany’s Joseph Goebbels he was “a most dangerous man.” Leslie Howard was like no other movie star.
Howard an was Englishborn stage and screen actor, director-producwho er, starred in some of our best-known f i l m s : “Berkeley Square” (1933), “Of Human Bondage” (1934), “The Scarlet Pimpernel” (1934), “The Petrified Forest” (1936), “Pygmalion” (1938), “Intermezzo” (1939), “Gone With The Wind” (1939), “Pimpernel Smith” (1941), and “The First of the Few (1942).
What isn’t so well known was his productions of anti-Nazi propaganda films as well as his alleged involvement with British Intelligence, which probably led to his death.
He was born Leslie Howard Steiner in 1893, to a British Christian mother and a Hungarian Jewish father. During World War I, the family changed their name to "Stainer,” a less Germansounding moniker. During the War Howard served as a British Army officer, but suffered shell shock and was discharged in 1916.
His son, Ronald Howard (1918–1996), became an actor and was noted for portraying the title character in the 1954 BBC television series, “Sherlock Holmes.”
Widely known as a ladies' man, Howard once described his amorous adventures thusly: “I didn't chase women, but I couldn't always be bothered to run away.”
Howard died in 1943 on a flight from Bristol, England to Lisbon, Portugal. According to German documents, the KLM/BOAC airliner was shot down near German-occupied Bordeaux, France. Reportedly, the German pilots were angry at their squadron commander for not informing the DC-3 was a civilian aircraft.
They said they could easily have escorted the DC-3 to Bordeaux. The pilots photographed the wreckage in the Bay of Biscay, and after the war the photographs were sent to the Howard's family.
The backstory version: the Germans believed Prime Minister Winston Churchill was on board. Later, Churchill expressed sorrow that mistake might have cost Howard his life. Churchill’s bodyguard later wrote
Churchill, at times, seemed clairvoyant, and, acting on a premonition, changed his departure to the following day.
Speculation by historians also have centered on whether British code breakers had decrypted top-secret Enigma messages outlining the assassination plan, and Churchill may have wanted to protect the code-breaking operation so the Germans wouldn’t suspect their Enigma machines had been compromised. His son, Ronald, investigated the German orders in great detail, as well as British communiqués verifying intelligence reports indicating a deliberate attack on his father’s plane. He speculated the Germans were aware of Churchill's real whereabouts and were not so naive as to believe the PM would be travelling alone, unescorted on an unarmed civilian aircraft. Ronald was convinced the order to shoot down the airliner came directly from Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda. One of Leslie Howard's films ridiculed the Nazi. Goebbels believed Howard to be “a most dangerous British propagandist.”
In novelist William Stevenson’s “A Man Called Intrepid,” he speculated the Germans knew of Howard's mission and ordered the aircraft shot down. Stephenson further claimed Churchill knew of the German plan, but allowed it to proceed to protect the fact that the British had broken the German Enigma code. CIA agent Joseph B. Smith recalled that, in 1957, he was briefed by the National Security Agency on Leslie Howard's death. The NSA claimed Howard knew his aircraft was to be attacked by German fighters and sacrificed himself to protect the British code-breakers. Whatever is true, Leslie Howard was one helluva patriot and actor.
A GREAT GENERATION – Today’s younger generations might be astounded to know what their ancestors of the so-called “Greatest Generation” accomplished to winning World War II. Between 1941 to 1945, they built 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3 million machine guns and, 2.5 million military trucks, many of which were Studebakers headed to Russia. We put 16.1 million men and women in uniform throughout the various armed services. NOTES IN HISTORY – One hundred years ago (1919) Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country … for any reason.
MORE NOTES – Also back in 1919, the official population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30, and two out of every 10 adults couldn't read nor write. Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school. Marijuana, heroin, morphine as well as fuel for the “horseless” carriage were all available over the counter at local corner drugstores.

Correct answer is “B” for actor Peter Lawford, who married JFK’s sister, Patricia, thereby becoming a brother-in-law to John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Edward Kennedy. Peter Lawford was an only child and, therefore, “C” above is a trick answer. WHICH FAMOUS PERSON BELOW TURNED DOWN A ROLE IN “OCEAN’S 11”? A. Steve McQueen. B. President John F. Kennedy. C. Perry Como. Correct answer is “A” for Steve McQueen. McQueen turned down a role in the movie after actress and gossip columnist, Hedda Hopper, warned him about becoming another Frank Sinatra “stooge” or subservient bootlicker.
IN THE FILMING OF “OCEAN’S 11” WHICH BELOW IS TRUE? A. Dean Martin was often too drunk to remain standing & often forgot his acting lines. B. Frank Sinatra got into a fist-fight with the director for putting out his lit cigarette. C. Sammy Davis, Jr. needed blocks on the pedals to drive the get-away garbage truck. Correct answer is “C” above. Sammy Davis, Jr. was too short for his legs to reach the
pedals of the garbage truck, which he needed to drive in the get-away scene. Wooden blocks had to be attached to the gas and brake pedals for Davis’ short legs to reach them. 1960s RAT PACK CONTINUES TO INFLUENCE TODAY’S AUDIENCES Ever since the original Rat Pack live stage performances, and their movie “Ocean’s 11,” their remarkable influence continues to this day.
Their original 1960 “Ocean’s 11” movie has spawned copycat films, including the ongoing movie sequels from a new generation of actors and actresses, resulting in the following: (1) “Ocean’s Eleven” remake, released in 2001. (2) “Ocean’s Twelve,” 2004. (3) “Ocean’s Thirteen,” 2007 and more recently (4) “Ocean’s 8,” released just last year, 2018.
This “live” performance is less than six weeks away, so quick action is strongly suggested. As of this publication date, there are still plenty of tickets available – but don’t delay!
The Rat Pack concert features remarkable look-a-like impersonators who will take you through a sentimental and exciting journey of unexpected laughs, nostalgia, music and songs, all in the style of the original Rat Pack concerts of the 1960s. Judging by the Rat Pack tour-

Thanksgiving Traditions in San Marcos
The Thanksgiving holiday is the start of many treasured traditions. At the City of San Marcos, we’d like to give thanks for all of our wonderful residents, businesses and visitors who help make our community an exceptional place to live, work and play.
If you’d like to start your Thanksgiving feast a bit early this year, we invite you to join us at the Senior Activity Center for a traditional Thanksgiving luncheon on Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 11: 30 a.m. for adults aged 50 and over.
If kicking off your holiday shopping on the day after Thanksgiving is one of your traditions, you’re in luck! San Marcos is home to many vibrant businesses, both large and small, to upport on Black Friday and beyond. If you prefer getting out into nature, check out the post-Thanksgiving tradition that’s gaining steam in San Diego County called Green Friday. This trend encourages folks to explore the outdoors, and San Marcos is the perfect place to slip into your hiking boots and hit the trails. In fact, San Marcos boasts so many parks and trails that we proudly earned the nickname “San Parkos.” You can find a map of our parks and trails at www.sanmarcos/parks.
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
As I stated last week, the budget will have a deficit for 18 years based on monies that we have not paid to Sacramento. We are not alone in this issue, other cities have the same problem. But we are the ones that have to make up the loss. This information was presented at a June Council meeting when we were discussing this year’s budget.
My concern is that the shortfall over the years will affect the budget ranging from 1015%. When the Public Safety portion is 66% and after reviewing it, there is not any real fat to trim, we have to look at the remaining 34% to find the 10-15%. Well you can see that cutting almost half of that remaining budget is going to be noticed. I am of the opinion that we just can’t do that. So what are our other options. More to follow… I attended a number of events this week and I’m always impressed by how much is going on in Escondido. Semper Fi,
Mac Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido firstname.lastname@example.org

Celebrating the Holiday Season
Many community events and traditions are celebrated in Vista this time of year and it’s the perfect time to experience our beautiful and growing vibrant downtown. The Chamber’s SoCal Christmas parade takes place on December 7, beginning at the Civic Center. The SoCal Winterfest and the Vista Community Clinic’s annual Holiday Homes Tour, which features Vista’s own Rancho Buena Vista Adobe, are both on Sunday, December 8 The Home Tour raises much needed funds for pediatric care to local children.

The Pastor Says... years from now.

Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of he Nazarene Thanksgiving is on the last possible date for a fourth Thursday this year. And it creates a lot of unusual cir
The traditional shopping season that begins with “Black Friday,” which really starts late on Thursday, is shorter than usual. No big deal since merchants have had “Black Friday” sales since the first of November.
On the Christian Calendar, Thanksgiving is quickly followed by the First Sunday of Advent and the start of the Celebration of Christmas with hardly time to take a breath.
College students who had this week off return to class for a week or two and then have final exams.
No wonder everyone is in such a hurry. The good news is that next year will be a little easier as Thanksgiving works its way back to an early date five or six
The apostle Paul was closing the letter called First Thessalonians. The people were discouraged. He wrote to encourage them and left them with some instructions on getting through tough times. One instruction was “give thanks in all things.” A more modern rendering is “be thankful in all circumstances.”
A side lesson in this teaching is the importance of prepositions. It doesn’t say give thanks “for” all things, but “in” all things. The difference is bigger than the words.
It is taking time to be thankful while trying to get through a fast-paced holiday season.
It is being thankful there is so much to celebrate, and so much to be thankful for. It is taking time to be thankful by sharing what we have with someone who has less.
No matter how you celebrate, take time to be thankful. Today, tomorrow and all through this festive season.
