Volume 46 - No. 47
Editor’s Note: Last week you were treated to a story by our prolific author, Friedrich Gomez, dealing with Humor at Thanksgiving. This week we offer a follow-up story - an easy and interesting read, also about Thanksgiving.
It’s a new writer for The Paper and we like his “stuff.” Hope you will as well. by Matthew Fabritius
When most of us hear the word Thanksgiving, we don’t typically think we need an explanation of the holiday’s history. Most if not all of us learned the basic history of this holiday in elementary school through a variety of harvest festivals and class stage plays concerning the 1620 Mayflower ship landing at Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts. You’re dressed up as a native Indian, someone else as a Pilgrim and of course some other kid has to play the pumpkin or turkey soon to be devoured. We know generally about the myth concerning the Pilgrims and their history, where they came from, why they came to America and what their intentions were once they landed in the New World. However, this myth is largely whitewashed and oversimplified as the Pilgrims were not simply poor souls looking for a better homeland. The Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock were largely theocratic Puritans who were driven out of England due to their extremist beliefs regarding Britain’s official state-run church, the Church of England. In essence, the Plymouth Pilgrims believed that the Church of England was rife with leftover corrupt practices from the Catholic Church which needed to be rooted out.
This particular Puritan movement in England traces its political origins back to Robert Browne, a pastor with the Church of England in the late 1500’s who divorced himself from the church for roughly six years. Ironically, he later returned to the church after a career as a school Headmaster and became an Anglican pastor. However, Browne’s moderate, short-lived rebellion against the Church of England went on to The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

influence an entire movement of extremist British and AngloAmerican Puritans for the next 200 years throughout the 16th and 17th centuries.
The emergence of the Puritans and their settling of New England provided much of the peasant support for the later American Revolutionary War against the British Empire in 1776. Without the extreme, separatist attitudes of the Puritan settlers whose loyalties to England were already strained, the Founding Fathers would have had a far more difficult

time leading a successful rebellion against the British crown.
Given the Pilgrims’ extreme, Puritan attitudes, their encounters with the Massachusetts wilderness were quite fitting. Out of the 102 passengers who rode the Mayflower to New England in 1620, roughly half of them died during the winter due to a combination of hypothermia, frostbite, scurvy and disease. The surviving Pilgrims later made contact with the peaceful Wampanoag tribe in March of 1621 and later in autumn held the traditional

Thanksgiving celebration we recognize today. We know that the Wampanoags helped the Pilgrims to grow corn and other crops along with teaching them how to perfect the art of hunting wild animals. But who exactly were these Wampanoag good Samaritans? Where did they come from and what happened to them? The Wampanoag natives prominently inhabited the southern portion of Massachusetts from Buzzards Bay to Cape Cod until the end of the 17th century when a massive war with

English colonists known as “King Philip’s War” from 16751678 exterminated nearly half of the tribe’s numbers. While many might infer that Philip was a British king, it was in fact the adopted English name for the Wampanoag tribal Chief Metacomet. Metacomet adopted the name Philip due to the Wampanoags’ friendly contact with the Mayflower Pilgrims roughly 50 years earlier. The war was primarily a result of violent English expansion into Wampanoag lands and attempts to subject the natives to colonial law. The powder keg event that kicked off the war was the arrest and subsequent execution of three Wampanoags in early June of 1675 by English officials in Plymouth Colony, who had been convicted by a court of having murdered an Indian translator named John Sassamon. Sassamon was an Indian native who originally served as a neutral liaison between the Wampanoags and English colonists. Later, he allegedly began to serve as an informant for the governor of Plymouth, erroneously claiming the Wampanoags were planning to attack English settlements. The Plymouth court then publicly

'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase . As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked.
'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.' WIFE VS. HUSBAND
threatened Chief Metacomet with seizure of his weapons and native lands in the event of any further notice of hostilities. In retaliation, the three aforementioned Wampanoag tribal members apparently murdered Sassamon by snapping his neck and then dumped his body in a local pond.
Whether or not the three Wampanoags were actually guilty of Sassamon’s murder is irrelevant. What is relevant is that as far as Chief Metacomet was concerned, the arrest and execution of Wampanoag natives by an English court was a severe violation of tribal sovereignty. The arrest and execution of the Wampanoag warriors would be akin to tribal authorities arresting and executing English settlers instead of handing them over to a colonial governor to be punished by “their own people”. This incident was a clear signal to the Wampanoags that the English colonists would not respect their tribal sovereignty.
As egregious of a tribal violation as the Sassamon affair may have been, not all of the blame for the violence lies with the English settlers. A tangential incident which escalated the conflict into a full-on war occurred two weeks after the Sassamon affair, where a group of Wampanoag Indians were caught trying to loot a newly'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws' WORDS

A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.’
'Allow me to explain,’ said the wife. ‘God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!’ WHO DOES WHAT
A man and his wife argued about who should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, 'You should do it because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee.
The husband said, 'You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.'
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
Wife replies, 'No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.'
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?'
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says 'HEBREWS'

constructed Plymouth settlement called Swansea. As the Wampanoags were ransacking the Pilgrims’ houses, an adolescent boy with a musket spotted them and managed to shoot one of the thieves who later died of his injuries. The Wampanoags returned the next day and managed to kill nine Swansean Pilgrims in retaliation.
In preparation for the clear and impending outbreak of war, Chief Metacomet formed an allied coalition of Indian tribes numbering around 3,500 warriors to drive the Pilgrims settlers out of New England. This same tactic of bringing together rival tribes to counter invaders was a quite ingenious ploy. It had been used to successful effect before in 9 AD by the Germanic tribal chieftain Arminius who defeated three Roman legions numbering over 20,000 men in Germany’s Teutoburg Forest. A series of Indian raids followed on Pilgrim villages and wagon caravans along with two massive sieges of Springfield, Massachusetts and Providence Rhode Island. The Indian tribes waged an incredibly brutal campaign against the English settlers, making very little distinction between military and civilian personnel. The Indians killed unarmed farmers, kidnapped women and children and razed entire farms to the ground. During the course of the conflict, thousands of acres of
The Silent Treatment
Husband and wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, 'Please wake me at 5:00 AM. He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight.
Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.' Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.
God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece. ••••• A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store. As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, "Son, can you tell me where the Post Office is?" The little boy replied, "Sure! Just go straight down this street a coupla blocks and turn to your right."
The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new pastor in town. I'd like for you to come to church on Sunday. I'll show you how to get to Heaven." The little boy replied with a chuckle.

crops were burnt and over 800 Pilgrims were killed in various Indian attacks.
In response to these successful Indian attacks, Governor Josiah Winslow of the Plymouth Colony called upon the military assistance of Captain Benjamin Church, who served in a colonial military unit that was essentially a precursor to the United States Army Rangers. Church’s role as a proverbial Germanicus was to hunt down the rebel Indian tribes and assassinate Chief Metacomet. Under Church, the English colonists waged an equally brutal scorched earth campaign of their own, strategically setting fire to the Indian coalition tribes’ crop fields in order to starve them out. A similar approach was taken by the Soviet Red Army during World War II to starve out the invading German Wehrmacht and by the Russian Imperial Army during the Napoleonic Wars to starve out the invading French Grande Armée. Hunting down the Indian coalition itself was not an easy task however, as the tribes frequently took refuge deep in the inhospitable forests and swamps of New England. There were no roads to follow and the coalition Indians were incredibly talented

"Oh mama", she replied, "The honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic!" Suddenly she burst out crying. "But, mama, as soon as we returned, Sam started using the most horrible language--- things I'd never heard before! I mean all these awful four-letter words! You've got to take me home! PLEASE MAMA!"
"Sarah, Sarah", her mother said, "calm down! You need to stay with your husband and work this out. Now, tell me, what could be so awful? What four-letter words?" "Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter. "I'm so embarrassed, they're just too awful! JUST COME GET ME, PLEASE!"
"Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset. Tell your mother these horrible four-letter words." Sobbing, the bride gasped, "Oh, Mama, he used words like DUST, WASH, IRON, and COOK!" "I'll pick you up in twenty minutes," said her mother.” •••• Here is a couple of great sports quotes.

at covering their tracks. To overcome this issue, Church recruited a wide variety of Indian trackers and translators to locate the coalition. Over the course of three years, Church and his posse slowly exterminated the Indian resistance ending with the fatal shooting of Chief Metacomet in Rhode Island. Just like Scottish rebel William Wallace whose head was placed on a pike overlooking London Bridge in 1305, the English colonists did the same with Chief Metacomet and placed his severed head on a pike atop a hill overlooking Plymouth where it remained for over 20 years. Showcasing this trophy head at one of New England’s largest English settlements was primarily meant to serve as a deterrent to other Indian rebels against further attacks and resistance.
After their defeat by the English colonists, the surviving Wampanoag males were typically sold into slavery either in Bermuda or the West Indies, while the females and children were normally retained as slaves for Pilgrim families in New England. Even Chief Metacomet’s own wife and son were sold into slavery in Bermuda at the end of the war. It is not difficult to imagine that

many of these female slaves were also raped by their English slave owners and bore mixed children, similar to the Spaniards after the conquest of Mexico. What is difficult to imagine is simply how fast the relationship between the Wampanoag Indians and English Pilgrims deteriorated.
Within the course of 50 years, the Pilgrims and Wampanoags had gone from truly friendly allies to the most bitter of enemies. The successful English colonization of New England was dependent almost entirely on the generosity of the local native tribes who rescued the early Pilgrims from certain death and were then either enslaved or exterminated by the next generation of English settlers soon afterwards. The reason for this is quite simple. The next generation of Pilgrims and Indians forgot about the mutual prosperity of their ancestors’ alliance and decided to enrich themselves at the expense of others.
And this is precisely why Thanksgiving is such an important holiday. It reminds us not to constantly want for more and to take a moment to look around to appreciate what we already have. It reminds us that people are more important than things and that we already have so much we take for granted every day.

Escondido Country Club Fire
On Wednesday, November 22, at approximately 5:20 a.m., the Escondido Police and Fire Communication Center received a report of a possible fire in the former Country Club Clubhouse, located at 1800 Country Club Lane. The first arriving unit reported heavy smoke and fire coming from the front of the single story abandoned building. Based on the conditions, a second alarm was requested and dispatched. Because of the heavy fire conditions, the danger from the roof collapsing and the building being abandoned, the fire was fought defensively from the outside.

was assisted by neighboring Fire Departments including San Marcos, Vista, Valley Center and Carlsbad.
In all, 10 fire engines, 3 trucks, 2 rescue ambulances and 3 Battalion Chiefs responded to the fire. The Escondido Police Department established and staffed several road closures that were necessary to protect fire hose and water supply lines. In addition, Escondido Public Works and Fleet Services assisted with the overhaul of the building by providing heavy equipment and logistical support. Support vehicles and personnel were also deployed to mitigate the water run-off from the

Thanksgiving is behind us now - it is my favorite holiday. Not the pressure of Christmas (my least favorite holiday). Thanksgiving is a time when we sit down as a family and enjoy good food and conversation. And we give thanks.
This year I give thanks to my wonderful partner, Evelyn Madison, the real power (and brains) behind The Paper. She makes sure the bills get paid, that we get paid for our services, that all of the books, legal notices, and ads run when scheduled, and she writes her weekly column, “The Social Butterfly.” In addition, she either heads up or is otherwise involved in a number of community organizations. She is a robust volunteer for the community and has been for years. Plus, she’s a pretty good listener. When my mind, or what is left of it, is

Within that group is another man I’m thankful for . . . Arie de Jong. Arie, a Dutch immigrant, came to this country with very little money . . . but a great work ethic and a brilliant mind.
Today, he is one of the most successful businessmen in North County and is also a very generous philanthropist, having supported many worthy causes with his money as well as his labor. He’s just a very special guy. Another Kiwanian, Kevin Camperell, has been a tremendous influence on my life and often offers sage, wise counsel; Tim Cunning, who became a member of our club and rose to club president, then Lt Governor, and is now a candidate for Governer of CalNevHa (California/Nevada/Hawaii) Kiwanis.
I give thanks to Mary, my ex-wife, who, even though she has some health issues still remains her same cheery self, alway anxious to help anyone who needs help. Though divorced, we have remained the closest of friends and cherish our happy years together; Mary presented me with two fine sons, Scott and Kenny. I remember with great affection the “Little League Years” probably the happiest time of my life with the kids. They’re both grown up now . . . and both are working toward a productive

I also give thanks this year for my dear friend and coffee pal, Pastor Dick Huls. Dick and I have coffee two/three times a month at the Major Market coffee shop. During that hour or so we discuss everything - world events, world and local problems. And we manage to come up with solutions for all of them. Surprisingly, perhaps, we seldom talk about religion. We do, on occasion, but it is not a primary focus of our meeting. We are just two older guys who happen to like each other. I often say I wish I had known Dick Huls 30 years ago, when we were both younger. We could have done so many great community service things together. (We are both Kiwanians - I, a member of the “morning club” (Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club of Escondido) and Dick is the newly elected president of the Escondido Kiwanis Club (the noon club). So, we have a lot in common and we do have the opportunity of doing great community service.

Enjoyed the story on the Indian store, It`s a well deserved article.
You neglected to mention some very important information such as it is like going into a Indian museum except everything in the museum is not for sale. The building that houses the store stands alone like a museum. The Indian store is at most of the pow wow`s in San Diego, they have the best selection of all the stands. The pow wow`s represent about half dozen tribes, they are a excellent place to learn about Indian culture and worship.

always up on the state of the art when it comes to dentistry.
I give thanks to dear friend, Bruce Krider, whom I deem to be a Saint. Bruce and I formed an organization, “The Puppy Coalition Foundation.” We save dog’s lives - dogs that would otherwise be euthanized (killed) we save and find homes for them. The “we” is probably an incorrect choice of words . . . Bruce does all the heavy lifting. He has saved well over 100 dogs and found homes for them - meanwhile investing well over $40,000 of his own personal funds to help save even more. I’m part of the foundation but I donate money here and there and help with admin details. Bruce is a very special guy.
I give thanks for having “discovered” a brilliant writer by the name of Friedrich Gomez. Friedrich is a first class guy . . . does a great job of researching a subject and then weaves the results of that research into a fascinating story. As editor, I get to see Friedrich’s work first . . . and I love every moment of it. And long time pal and former boss, Alan Skuba. Love him and his family. We “talk” weekly via emails. Special special pal.
So many people in my life to be thankful for - and I’m sure to have forgotten others. But it is early in the morning as I write this . . . and perhaps an old man can be forgiven a lapse or two of memory.
Finally, two very special girls in my life that I’m happy and thankful for. Trixie and Cindy. (Evelyn calls Trixie, “Amber” - but her real name is Trixie). They are pups, but are “our daughters.”

Owney, the Postal Dog
I am writing in the hopes I might get a copy of your publication The Paper dated 9/17/17 so that I might place the publication in a display case of other Owney-related books and stories at the United States Postal Service Bolger Academy in Potomac, Maryland. If a copy of the publication is not possible, could I please get a hardcopy of the story. I would be happy to pay for any costs incurred or to send you a postage paid large envelope.
The author of the story Friedrich Gomez has been very helpful and informative in providing related sources and I found his article to be well researched. The article would be a valuable addition to the other documents in the display. Thank you for your consideration of my request, /s/Kathleen Tsukamoto US Postal Service Asset Mgmt Supply Specialist Topeka KS
Editor’s Note: Here is Friedrich Gomez’s response: Dear Kathleen:
I can mail you a couple hardcopies of Owney the Mail Dog for your intended purposes, as you expressed in your email to my editor, Lyle E. Davis. I will get these hardcopies to you in the next day or two.
Trusting that you had a heartfelt Thanksgiving Day. Let me know if there is any other way I can be of assistance to you and your wonderful Postal Service and its various entities, such as museums, etc. Warmest Regards, Friedrich Gomez
P.S. Your Postmaster General in Washington. D. C., Megan J. Brennan, has a few hardcopies of my "Owney the Postal Dog" cover story, but, inside sources inform me
that she loves them (her hardcopies) so much that I would not dare to (even consider) asking her to part company with her 'treasured Owney copies.' LOL. Rest assured, I will mail a couple hardcopies to you. Your intense interest and compliments mean the world to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Escondido Union School District Now Accepting School Choice Applications – Last week the Escondido Union School District began accepting School Choice applications for the 2018-2019 school year, and will accept them through Friday, February 9th. Most parents choose to enroll their child/children in the school that serves their neighborhood attendance area. If this is your preference, you do not need to do anything until regular New Student Registration and Returning Student Enrollment takes place later this school year. However, it is recognized that students have diverse needs and interests, and the schools have diverse offerings and signature programs. If you want your child to be considered to attend another EUSD school, now is the time to submit a School Choice application to request an intra-district transfer. Please note: Submitting an application for School Choice does not guarantee enrollment in the desired school(s). By law, School Choice Intra-district Transfers are approved on the basis of space availability at the school(s) of desired attendance. A lottery will be conducted in March 2018, and all applicants will be notified of the results via email. If you want your child to be considered to attend Quantum Academy, then you must submit a School Choice application. School Choice is the only method of enrollment at Quantum.
Poll Shows Gas Tax “In Trouble” – “Stop the Gas Tax” is the battle cry for repealing the gas tax of 12.5 cents more per gallon (20 cents more for diesel) at the pump, that the California legislature voted in, which took effect November 1st, 2017. Estimates suggest it will cost each car owner upwards of $500 or more per car, per year. Auto registration fees will increase as much as $175 a year – striking the wallets of hardworking families across the state. The tax revenue goes into the state’s General Fund, meaning there’s zero guarantee the money will be used to actually fund the transportation “fixes” they claim will happen. The LA Times poll released on Friday shows the statewide gas tax is in trouble; “Put to a popular vote, the gas tax for infrastructure is in trouble,” said Robert Shrum, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at USC. “No amount of
Hacking Public Infrastructure
Last week, Cyber-criminal hackers attacked the Sacramento Regional Transit system (SacRT), erasing computer programs that affected internal operations, including computers that assign bus routes throughout the Sacramento region. More harm was threatened if SacRT failed to meet a ransom demand. The ransom message was sent via Facebook demanding a bitcoin payment, with a value above $8,000 immediately. SacRT officials determined that no data was stolen and steps are underway to secure the system. Transit services were not impacted. Other recent reports include the security breach at Equifax, one of the nation’s three major consumer credit reporting agencies. Reportedly, the sensitive financial information of 143 million Americans was compromised, making this one of the largest security breaches in history. Shortly after being elected to the Assembly, I became aware of a hacking incident at a local hospital. A caller using Voice
over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology shut down the emergency room’s phone lines in an extortion attempt. As a result of this and other incidents, I introduced Assembly Bill 1649, which expanded the California Comprehensive Computer Data Act to combat this growing threat. The bill updated legal definitions and modernized our codes to include forms of computer hacking, including government and public safety infrastructure systems operated by hospitals, emergency services and public utility companies. AB 1649 was signed into law by Governor Brown.
From government to private industry, our financial security and our voter files are all under threat of attack by cyber-criminals. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; it’s also the price that we all must pay for modern technology. Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.
spin and deception will fool California voters because they know the gas tax adds to their cost of living without fixing our roads, Carl DeMaio said. “It’s going to be tough – but with Californians outraged that they’re being taxed to pay for California’s bloated budget instead of actually fixing roads, the strong momentum is on our side, DeMaio concluded. “Put to a popular vote, the gas tax for infrastructure is in trouble.” Petitions are available to qualify the repeal initiative for the 2018 ballot – and this kind of momentum is going to help lead the campaign’s success. More than 45 events will be held across the state over the next 30 days to continue to grow the public awareness of the effort. Visit the website at http://www.reformcalifornia.org/ne ws.html.

cycle of poverty and homelessness for individuals, youth and families in Carlsbad. According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development 2017 Point-in-Time Count, homelessness has increased 5 percent in San Diego County over the past year, with more than 9,000 San Diegans living on the streets or in shelters. The CCF grant cycle aims to be part of the regional solution by supporting programs that give Carlsbad residents the necessary tools to avoid or move out of homelessness. Examples may include providing computers for creating resumes, counseling to help with setting goals, and addressing transportation challenges. Because of the complexity of the homeless challenge in the region, CCF will fund programs

Walter Percy Chrysler, born April 2, 1875, in Wamego, Kansas, was an American automotive industry executive and founder of the Chrysler Corporation, now a part of Fiat Chrysler Automobile Company.
Chrysler was the son of Anna Maria and Henry Chrysler. He began his career as a machinist and railroad mechanic in Ellis. He took correspondence courses earning a mechanical degree.
Walter Chrysler's father, Henry, was an American Civil War veteran who was a locomotive engineer for the Kansas Pacific Railway and its successor, the Union Pacific Railroad. Walter Chrysler made it plain to his ancestry was in accord with comedian Jimmy Durante, who maintained: 'Ancestors? I got millions of 'em.” Chrysler apprenticed in the railroad shops at Ellis as a machinist and railroad mechanic. He then spent a period of years roaming the West. Some of his moves were due to restlessness and a too-quick temper, but his roaming also was a way to become more well-rounded in his railroad knowledge. He worked his way up through positions such as foreman, superintendent, division master mechanic, and general master mechanic.
His automotive career began in 1911, when he received a requested meeting with banker James J. Storrow, who was a director of Alco. Storrow asked him if he had given any thought to automobile manufacturing. Chrysler had been an auto enthusiast for more than five years and was, of course, very interested. Storrow arranged a meeting with Charles W. Nash, then president of the Buick Motor Company, who was looking for a smart production chief. Chrysler, who had resigned from many railroading jobs over the years, made his final resignation from railroading to become in charge of production at Buick in Flint, Michigan. He found many ways to reduce the costs of production, such as putting an end to finishing automobile undercarriages with the same luxurious quality of paint that the body warranted according to sales
In 1916, William C. Durant, who founded General Motors in 1908, had re-taken GM from bankers. Chrysler, who was closely tied to the bankers, submitted his resignation to Durant.
Durant took the first train to Flint an attempt to keep Chrysler at the helm of Buick. Durant made the then unheard of salary offer of $10,000 ($165,000 in today's dollars) a month for three years, with a $500,000 bonus at the end of each year, or $500,000 in stock. Additionally, Chrysler would report directly to Durant, and would have full run of Buick without interference from anyone. Apparently in shock, Chrysler asked Durant to repeat the offer, which he did. Chrysler immediately accepted. Chrysler ran Buick successfully for three more years. Not long after his three-year contract was up, in 1919, he resigned from his job as president of Buick. He did not agree with Durant's vision for the future of General Motors. Durant paid Chrysler $10 million for his GM stock. Chrysler had started at Buick in 1911 for $6,000 a year, and left one of the richest men in America. GM replaced Chrysler with Harry H. Bassett a protégé, who had risen through the ranks at a subsidiary of Buick. Chrysler was then hired by bankers to attempt a turnaround. The investors foresaw the loss in the Willys-Overland Motor Company in Toledo, Ohio. He demanded, and received, a salary of $1 million a year for two years, an astonishing amount at that time. When Chrysler left Willys-Overland in 1921 after an unsuccessful attempt to wrestle control from John Willys, he acquired a controlling interest in the ailing Maxwell Motor Company. In 1925, Chrysler phased out Maxwell and absorbed it into his new firm, the Chrysler Corporation, in Detroit, Michigan. In addition to his namesake car company, Plymouth and DeSoto marques were created, and in 1928 Chrysler purchased Dodge. The same year he financed the construction of the Chrysler Building in New York City, which was completed in 1930. Chrysler was named Time magazine's Man of the Year for 1928.
Chrysler turned 56 in the spring of 1936 and decided to step down from an active role in the day-to-day business of the company. Two years later, his wife, Della died at the age of 58 and Walter, devastated at the loss of his childhood sweetheart, suffered a stroke. His previously robust health never recovered from this, and he succumbed to a cerebral hemorrhage in August 1940 at Forker House. He was buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, New York. Chrysler was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 1967. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

Sparta’s Success at S.D. Humane Society – Every day you help give animals like Sparta a second chance. Sparta, a 2-year-old Siberian Husky, was found abandoned in the road, unable to walk after being hit by a car in Imperial Beach. Thanks to a call from a Good Samaritan, one of the Humane Law Enforcement Officers was able to reach her in time to save her life. Sparta was rushed to receive the emergency veterinary care she desperately needed after the accident left her suffering from multiple wounds and damage to her mouth, jaw and pelvis. The team knew she would require extensive surgery in order to recover – but there was no way they were giving up on this beautiful girl. With your support, Sparta was provided the surgeries and special care she needed to recover. We helped her walk with one of her legs in a sling, hand-fed her baby food and Critical Nutrition by Purina, and kept her comfortable with pain medication and lots of love. To help her

The Egyptian artists vividly celebrate the flowers of the desert, villages and Nile River in their work – many of which can be seen January 8 – March 31, 2018, from 9am-5pm in the Ecke Building at the Botanic Garden. These tapestries are the legacy of an “experiment in creativity” begun in 1952 by leading Egyptian architect Ramses Wissa Wassef, who was convinced that everyone is born with artistic gifts but that these develop only through practicing a craft from early childhood. He installed looms in a workshop in the village of Harrania, 6 miles from Cairo, and invited village children to learn to weave. As they

to be cheerful, but instead, we are burdened with excessive expectations. They call it stress or being pressured.
Pastor Richard Huls (Retired)
THE PRESSURE IS ON
December is a “pressure” month. We will be pressured to send Christmas cards, buy gifts, set up and decorate a tree, put lights on our houses, plan dinners and parties, decorate the house, accept or decline party invitations, be joyful and happy, donate to the Salvation Army kettles, sift through dozens of appeals for funds, avoid the Scrooge complex, be generous in spirit and pocketbook, sing and listen to Christmas carols, and decide on Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays for the season’s greeting. This is the time of year when we are supposed
Yet, there are many approaches to the season, which could make it one of our most enjoyable months. It all depends on our attitude. Attitudes determine our way of life. If the attitude is cheerful, generous, satisfied, grateful, sharing, and loving, that is how life will be. Who would not want that kind of life? What do we do to have that kind of attitude? I believe we need an example. Let’s, begin by looking at God’s attitude. Rather than judgment and stress, God brings hope, peace, joy, and love to our world through the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ.( Jn. 3:16.) This is what we celebrate this month, not being burdened with all the physical and social expectations. We will live out whatever attitude we have because it is the attitude (and belief) that makes us. By following God’s example by being loving, generous, giving, and joyful we can have a pressure less month.

Annual Parade of Lights
On Sunday, December 9th, the Oceanside Yacht Club presents the annual holiday Parade of Lights, taking place from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm at the Oceanside Harbor. This mustsee parade is one of the most popular events of the year! Fishing boats, sail boats, yachts, kayaks and dinghies will all be decorated in their holiday finest as they circle the Harbor for the viewing pleasure of shoppers, diners and visitors of all ages. Santa sightings are sure to occur!
Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so that you’ll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your makeup, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people. Be a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a lift.
comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and unwind.
The best way to enjoy the festivities is to arrive at the Harbor early and eat dinner at one of the Harbor Village
Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the home just before your husband arrives, gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift, too. Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash the children’s hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and if necessary change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be glad he is home. Some don’ts: Don’t greet him with problems or complaints. Don’t complain if he is late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what he might have gone through that day. Make him
If you choose your seating strategically enough, you may even be able to watch the parade from your dinner seat. Regardless of where you eat, you will be in a prime location to walk around the Oceanside Harbor and view the beautifully decorated boats and lights. If you don’t plan to eat dinner, bring chairs, a blanket and some hot chocolate, and bundle up with jackets and mittens. The Parade of Lights is free to the public.
For more information, please call the Oceanside Yacht Club at 760-7225751.
Listen to him. You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.
Make the evening his. Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or to other places of entertainment. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure, his need to be home and relax. The Goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit. Cliff-isms

Refurbs- are they a good deal or not?
As Vice President at Packard Bell Computers in the late 1980s I had a warehousing and distribution manager, whose responsibilities included processing the PCs returned from our high volume retailers like Price Club and Sears. He reasoned that since they had policies that only allowed the return of merchandise within thirty days of purchase, that the returned products were practically new. He knew that Packard Bell could not repackage the PCs and resell them as new, but he saw nothing wrong with using the returned PC components in new computer builds. He systematically removed

grasped the basic technique he encouraged them to depict whatever they liked, laying down only three rules: No copying, no preliminary designs, no adult interference or criticism. His experiment rapidly demonstrated that any child is able to create works of staggering beauty and skill, confirming that innate creativity can grow with a child into adolescence and adulthood. Since Ramses’ death in 1974, his widow Sophie and daughters Suzanne and Yoanna have expanded the experiment, and now several further generations of children have now mastered weaving. Currently, 30 adult wool and cotton weavers actively work at the Art Centre in Egypt, and this project has a strong impact on the community. It transformed the lives of the villagers, bringing prosperity, education, better health, selfrespect and satisfaction to all and high status and equality to the women.
Fifteen wool tapestries and twenty cotton weavings will be on display at the San Diego Botanic Garden. Wall signs, books and a short documentary present the making of the tapestries and the aspirations of founder Ramses Wissa Wassef are also part of this educational and artistic display. All the tapestries are unique and woven by individual artists, whom work for up to 4 months on each tapestry. The Egyptian sheep wool is dyed with traditional vegetable dyes that are planted in the gardens of the art centre in Giza. “We are extremely pleased to be the first public garden to display these unique plant- and garden-themed tapestries and share them with our visitors,” said Julian deuval, President/CEO of San Diego Botanic Garden.

the components and put them back in stock with new components to be used on the assembly line for building new PCs. The problem was that he never told me what he was doing, (although I have always suspected that Packard Bell’s President knew) and it was my name on the Federal and state contracts that promised that Packard Bell would use only new components in the manufacture of computers. When I found out what was happening I immediately stopped the practice, or at least thought I did. I left Packard Bell later that year (1988). Apparently the practice was re-started in 1989 and continued until 1995 when a disgruntled employee reported these practices to the Feds. After a four year court battle Packard Bell was fined three and a half million dollars. During the 1990s the Federal Government as well as many states passed “Packard Bell Laws” controlling the use of “used” parts in “new” products thus establishing the market for returned merchandised and its part in the “refurb” boom. Only a few years ago “big box” retailers like Fry’s, Best Buy and Office Depot sold nothing but “new” products. Today their ads feature “refurbs” and in many stores, “refurbs” actually outsell new PCs. Two factors forced the “Big Box” electronics into the “refurbs” business. First, consumers became aware of the fact that high quality “refurbs” were better in quality reliability and performance than new “Chinese cheapies” from Dell, HP and Lenovo that pollute the computer shelves in the “big box” stores. Many business and home users also appreciated the fact that refurbs were available with Windows7 while new retail PCs

Marcolongo is senior manager of Operation Rebound with the Challenged Athlete’s Foundation. He is dedicated to serving the rehabilitation needs of returning veterans, in ways that are meaningful to them. Krpata lost a leg as a result of a wartime injury. Her career had been all important to her and she was at a loss as to how to proceed with her life. One of her loves was swimming and surfing but “how do you do that with one leg?” Thanks to Operation Rebound she found

came with Windows10 only. The second major factor was Amazon, EBay and the rest of the Internet. When Internet sales of “refurbs” began to replace new PC sales the “big box” sales, they had no choice but to climb aboard.
One category of “refurbs” is “returns.” These are new products returned within 30 days of purchase. Monitors, TVs, and other expensive electronics are returned for a variety of reasons. More than half are returned to retail stores in perfect working order. The store cannot resell them as new so they are bundled with the defective returns and shipped to the manufacturers processing center. There they are repaired if needed, tested, recertified and sold or auctioned as “refurbs” retailers and wholesalers. These are a great buy when you can find them.

PCs are big businesses, governments and schools who replace their PCs every 3 to 5 years. The old PCs are purchased by certified “refurbishers,” evaluated, updated, certified and sold into retail and wholesale channels. Typically they sell for roughly half the price of retail PC equivalents. They are a better buy than new retail PC because of their price, quality and durability. A five year old commercial “refurb” notebook will probably outlast a brand new retail notebook. Power, speed, memory and storage capabilities are non issues and you can find nearly any feature or configuration you want in a “refurb.” “Refurbs” as an alternative to new should definitely be considered when you shop for a computer. Here at the computer factory we have both and we take trade-ins.

It’s a little-known fact that the smartest animal is the pig. Scientists say if pigs had thumbs and a language, they could be trained to do simple manual labor. They give you 20 to 30 years of loyal service, and at their retirement dinner, you can eat them. Due to the shape of the North American elk’s esophagus, even if it could speak, it could not pronounce the word lasagna. Basketball was invented by the Celtics. Interestingly enough, so was the parquet floor.
It’s a little known fact that cows were domesticated in Mesopotamia and were also used in China as guard animals for the Forbidden City. A Freudian slip is saying one thing and meaning a mother.
