LOOK AT WILLYA?
It's the first new U.S. supercarrier class since the 1970's. It's the USS GERALD R. FORD.
I'm among several writers who howl and keen that we're now naming our carriers after presidents instead of the more traditional names like Yorktown, Lexington, Hornet, Saratoga, etc. If they don't name one of these ENTERPRISE I'll take a boat and a ladder and a can of paint out and do it myself. I'll try to sneak up on them on a foggy night, and hopefully the crew in the ship's area control watch will be laughing so hard they'll forget to shoot me.
This ship is a floating monster. Look at the hull, then look at the teeny, tiny people on the deck. I don't care what you think about the military budget. I have reservations about it myself. But THIS leviathan is impressive by any standards. It can carry more planes than our current (and aging) Nimitz-class carriers. Even more, it can launch 25% more sorties (aerial combat strikes) per day than the current Nimitz-class flattops. Part of this is due to its EMALS, the super-secret Electro-Magnetic Aircraft Launch System, which can't be much of a secret to anyone who has studied science since Nikola Tesla was around. The idea is simple. Making it work while throwing a seventeen-ton aircraft off the deck at flight speed is the secret. They also mention, almost in passing, that these ships can generate THREE TIMES the electricity of a Nimitz carrier. Which will go mostly unnoticed among the great unwashed. Hey, it's got electromagnetic launch systems (four of them) instead of the old two or three steam pisThe Paper - 760.747.7119

tons we used to fire planes off with. So what?
So this. They're easier and safer to maintain, and can be repaired under combat conditions more quickly than the old steam pistons. And those magnetic launchers don't need that much power. Not anywhere close to it even under full flight operations. The ship's miles and miles of control cables supporting its computer operations are all fiber optic, which is not only cheaper than copper wire, but survives a marine environment without corrosion and lasts much longer between repairs and replacements. Old sailors will remember sweating it out below decks in sweltering temperatures. The USS FORD is completely air-conditioned. It's worth the money too when you calculate in extended crew capability and operational readiness. And this ship has already been designed and built to be upgraded with as-yet nonexistent computers, fire controls, communications, you name it. Think of a huge LEGO ship. Simply unplug an

Out of the Mouths of Babes
A first-grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are firstgraders, six-year-olds, because the last one is a classic! (Children’s answers in italics)
1.Don't change horses until they stop running. 2.Strike while the bug is close. 3.It's always darkest before Daylight Saving Time. 4.Never underestimate the power of
old system and pop in a new one. In the world of aircraft carriers, BIG equals ECONOMICAL. When the nuclear "batteries" are placed aboard ship, she'll be ready for duty. And it's only going to be refueled once--twenty-five years from now. She's designed for a fifty year lifespan. If you calculate her cost over a half-century, it suddenly becomes much, much cheaper. And the EMALS gives a steady, accelerating push to the aircraft, adjustable for everything from small drones to the biggest and heaviest carrier aircraft. The old steam pistons gave most of their shove in the first instant. This not only rattled the teeth of the hardiest fighter pilot, it was mighty hard on the aircraft as well. (Rather like being hit in the rear by a freight train.) EMALS will reduce aircraft maintenance and repair costs too.
The Navy has other things in mind for all that enormous electrical generation capability. The first and most likely new addition will be a replacement of the Phalanx Gun System. This is the up-closeand-personal buzz saw that

has been protecting American ships at sea for thirty-some years now. And it's good. But we have something coming out of mamma's oven now that's even far better. It's a frappin' ray gun!
Wake up, boys and girls! You've been napping so long that you haven't kept up with Moore's Law or the overall exponential increase in sheer gee-whiz power that our dandy (but secretive) military-industrial complex has managed to jinn up. They are about to outfit all Navy ships, from destroyers to supercarriers, with computer driven and aimed lasers which will poke a large, nasty, and fatal hole in any hostile that's dumb enough to try to attack them. This wasn't child's play. Lasers are funny things. You just don't throw more and more power into them. They need to be "tuned" to the atmospheric conditions. Clouds, ocean mist, even temperature and barometric pressure come into play if you want the things to work. So what did the Navy do? They did the math--and figured it out. The first anti-aircraft and anti-ship missile lasers will
begin to be installed on our destroyer fleets next year. But that's just a stop-gap measure. The "heavies," the long-range laser guns, will follow in three to five years, able to take out targets many, many miles away once they show themselves over the horizon. There will be no Japanese-style torpedo runs on our ships, no dive-bombing attacks ever again. A fast-attack boat swarm would be eliminated in mere moments. Any humanpiloted aircraft or surface-tosurface missile could only make a suicide run at an American ship so armed--and that will be ALL of them probably before the decade is out. When you concentrate multimegawatt coherent light beams at things they...well...tend to disappear. Or do funny corkscrews into the sea while burning furiously. You wouldn't want to pilot a jet trying that. What are you going to do? Eject into the full ferocity of a several megawatt laser beam? Good luck with that. Let me know how that works out for you.

about those fears you were having?' he asked.
Ever since I was a child I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night. So I went to a shrink and told him:
'He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Ain't nobody under there now!'
'Well, two hundred bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought me a new pickup!' 'Is that so?!'
Psychiatrists vs. Bartenders
With a bit of an attitude, he said, 'And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?'
'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.'
Forget the shrinks! Have a drink and talk to a bartender! ••••• It was entertainment night at the senior citizens' center.
'Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the shrink. 'Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.' 'How much do you charge?' 'Two hundred dollars visit,' replied the doctor. I'll sleep on it,' I said.

‘The Big Stick’ Cont. from Page 2 But the new American ships being built now ALL have tremendous electrical power generating systems, even more than would be required for that gawdawful laser defense. What's the story here? Does the Navy expect all new recruit male sailors to show up with their personal stereos and PlayStations? Have they recruited so many of our women to serve aboard they figure they'd better increase the ships wattage to handle their hairdryers? Don't be silly. You know better than that.
Remember what they're building today to shoot multi-ton aircraft off the decks of the USS FORD? It's not your grandfather's steam catapult. It's a series of electromagnets, all perfectly timed and controlled by (yup) computers. These latch onto the jet's nose wheel and sling it down the deck with enormous horsepower and at variable speed, depending on the plane and its payload. Okay, we covered that and laser air defense. But the new Navy coming on watch has more use for megawatts than just air defense or tossing fighters off the deck.
They're furiously--and successfully--working to develop the most awesome artillery gun ever made on this planet. It has several names, depending on who you talk to about it. But it's most commonly known simply as "the rail gun." These will be capable of throwing a surprisingly small shell shaped like a rocket--but with no propellant and NO EXPLOSIVES-up to two hundred miles inland. And that's just what they're admitting to today. God only knows what the operational range will be when they start installing them. Pinpoint precision. Computer-controlled aiming from the ship's gun barrel all the way to target impact. Hypersonic speed. A well-crewed ship should be able to have a minimum of five rounds enroute before the first one hits--and it will hit very, very quickly. When it does, an odd effect
takes place. A simple example follows--take a golf club and whack a ball into your partner's stomach. Normally, if you're an average golfer, he will yell and jump up and down and curse you using words his grandma would be shocked to hear. If you're a pro, you'll drop him in his tracks, the wind knocked out of him, unable to speak or even moan. Pros drive balls about 120 to 135 miles per hour. Now accelerate that ball to over 125 times the speed a pro can hit him with...
He will vaporize. Turn mostly into a faint red mist which the wind will blow away in seconds. Good shootin' Tex. You've just seen the law of inertia in action. The faster a thing goes, the more mass it carries, and the harder it hits. Who would you rather take a punch from? Your four year old niece, or Joe Frazier in his prime? (Tidbit: They made a pad for professional boxers to hit. It measured the impact of their punch. Joe Frazier still holds the record, a heavier punch than Ali, heavier than Tyson. No one living has yet to out-punch Joe Frazier as recorded by mechanical means.)
Now, after that brief sports interlude, let's continue with our business. There are confirmed reports that the Dahlgren Naval Surface Warfare Research Center has fired mag-rail projectiles--several times--at over Mach 7, each generating 32 megajoules of impact energy.
ONE megajoule is the equivalent of being hit by a one-ton car traveling at one hundred miles per hour. Imagine 32 of them at once. And that's just a test model, a baby. They're ramping them up as you read this. God only knows what they're shooting now.
Remember--the Air Force was ballyhooing altitude "records" of 60,000 feet while the U-2 was designed--and routinely flew at--10,000 feet higher during at the same era. It was topsecret at the time. They once claimed a single-seat fighter could never fly across the Atlantic Ocean without air-toair refueling. Our upgraded (but 40 year old) F-15s do it routinely now. No human being could withstand more
than 12 gees of acceleration or deceleration. Major Joseph Strapp, USAF, experimented on himself and beat the "fatal" limit time after time in the 1950's and 60's. More recently, an American astronaut hitching a ride home on a Russian Soyuz capsule from the International Space Station endured a horrendous 22 gees of deceleration during a neardisastrous landing malfunction and lived to tell the tale. By the time most of this stuff becomes declassified, it's obsolete. So it's a reasonable assumption that soon, in less than five years, we'll have rail guns possibly reaching 18,000 miles per hour.
Some of you won't understand that number, but I'll bet most of you realize that's orbital speed. They'll be capable of firing a shell into earth orbit and it will STAY there, in other words. Bang. Orbit. That's pretty doggoned fast. We worked for nearly thirty years to do that with multi-stage ROCKETS, for Pete's sake! Now try to imagine the inertia, the impact, that an 80 pound shell made of ANYTHING would have on the surrounding area if the barrel was lowered and the shell hit, say, a major downtown building. Just one shell, mind you. You would never see anything but a brief flash of blinding light. You could not hear it. It would arrive before any radar operator could react. If you were far enough away to survive, you'd swear it was a nuke. But it wasn't. It was just a slab of depleted uranium. Or titanium. Or chromed aluminum with an embedded steel slug. Or scrap iron. It wouldn't make much difference at that speed. You could fire a wooden fence post at that speed and do phenomenal, non-understandable destruction. But a wooden post would burn up by friction during the flight, so let's stick with metals. (Unless you wanted to be sneaky and fire an iron ore rock, which could be easily mistaken for a meteorite which just randomly decided to slam into, oh, let's say, Kim Jong Il's bathroom...) We are nearing the second round of dizzying military capabilities--and military

Letters to the Editor Lyle:
The KOWN Story
I don’t know when I have enjoyed The Paper more. Your article on KOWN was great fun.
I relocated to Escondido in 1969 and KOWN was, I believe, already located in Walker Scott Mall. We used to stand with noses pressed to the window and watch you guys work. We also well remember the first ever Cruising Valley Blvd. It likely would have been an OK deal had there been some way to limit it to locals. It was a real “Happening.” I, in company with Doug Best, witnessed some of Wil Mason’s unfortunate incident. Gotta give him credit though; he bowed his head, slogged on and has done quite well for himself. Haven’t seen him in a while, but always enjoy talking to him. Some of the other stuff I knew about, but did not participate in. I was too busy building a bank. Kudos Lyle. Well done. Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.
Kudo’s for Lyle
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading your article about KOWN! It was really well done and brought back a great flood of memories for me, as well as revealing some new and/or long-forgotten angles on certain topics.
The portion about Wil Mason was especially well done. I hadn't recalled the degree to which you were involved in that sad but intriguing chapter of Escondido history. The 1974 cruising incident was just a faint memory, as was the flagpole sitting stunt at the car dealership. More vivid were the names of the great personalities that made KOWN such a fun place for me as a kid: Joann Wert, Phil Boles, Dick Lumenello, Bob Barnes, Dean

PRELIMINARY DISTRICTING PLAN
On Tuesday, October 29, the Independent Districting Commission approved a Preliminary Districting Plan dividing the City of Escondido into four (4) Council districts. If adopted by the City, those districts shall be used for all future elections of City Council members, including their recall, and for filling any vacancy in the office of member of the Council until new districts are established. The Preliminary Districting Plan shown here may also be viewed on the City website by visiting www.escondido.org/Data/Sites/ 1/media/PDFs/IDC/Preliminar yDistrictPlan.pdf
During the thirty (30) day period after filing the designated preliminary districting plan with the City Clerk, the Consent Decree directs the Commission to hold at least three (3) public hearings in various geographic areas of the City before it makes any modifications. The schedule for these public hearings is as follows:
· Thursday, November 21; 6 p.m. at Hidden Valley Middle School
· Saturday, November 23; 9 a.m. at Mission Middle School
· Sunday, November 24; 3 p.m. at Center for the Arts, Escondido Following these public hearings, the Districting Commission will hold a Public Meeting on Sunday, November 24; 6 p.m. in City Council Chambers, 201 N. Broadway, 92025 for discussion and approval of a Recommended Districting Plan. The approved Plan will be submitted to the City Council for its up or down approval. $3 Million Claim Filed Against the City of Escondido
The shooting death of 29-yearold Pedro Campos Martinez by Escondido Police officers has prompted a lawsuit filed against the city of Escondido, seeking $3 million damages.
One of the side benefits of last week’s cover story on KOWN Radio and its history was that dear friend, Alan Skuba, stopped by the house to get 10 copies of The Paper to give to his family and friend.
Alan and I stay in touch weekly via email, usually however, it’s just jokes and cartoons with only an occasional note or essay.

The complaint alleges that two Escondido Police Officers, Marco Fuentes and Leonard Hand, opened fire on Mr. Campos, striking him four times. Mr. Campos was transported to Palomar Medical Center where he died.
The complaint claims the Medical Examiner confirmed that Mr. Campo was shot in the back and not in the front as was stated in the original report. It alleges incompetence, faulty training, negligent use of excessive force, and faulty screening of police recruits by the city and its police department. It asks for $3 million in damages. Escondido DUI Checkpoints
The complaint alleges Mr. Campos had made a 911 call on the evening of May 4, 2013 at approximately 10:45 p.m. seeking assistance. The complaint further alleges that the 911 distress call was seeking psychiatric assistance, that there was no crime-in-progress and this was known or should have been known by the responding officers.
On Friday night, November 1st, officers from the Escondido Police Department participated in a DUI Saturation Patrol.

He was (a) bringing Ciro’s car back after servicing it, and (b) getting a hair stying and (c) having his new beard styled. You see, Ronnie took a tumble out of the back of a moving van and wound up busting up his left arm. Makes it mighty hard to shave so . . . Ma Nature took over and grew Ronnie a beard. Doesn’t look bad, either. Knowing Ciro, he’ll style that beard so well that Hollywood talent scouts will be seeking interviews with Ronnie.

Estimates of how much the city would pay for construction range from $113,000 to significantly more, said Loretta McKinney, the city’s community services director.
McKinney said city officials will also present residents with other options, such as locating the track in Jesmond Dene or Mountain View parks.
Councilman Mike Morasco has indicated he would likely support the proposal; Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz has indicated she will likely oppose it.
“It’s good for people age 5 to 50 and will get people outdoors more,” Morasco said. “The amount of people in our city who participate in this sport is astronomical.” Analogies were drawn in some quarters to the heavy bicycle activity in the city of Carlsbad. No exhaust from engines, a quiet sport (aside from possible cheering from the stands). The difference is that Carlsbad bicyclists exercise on the city streets and ocean boardwalk, not on a stadium built and paid for by Carlsbad taxpayers.

Will we be able to walk the same tightrope with them as we did with the Soviets and the atomic and hydrogen bombs?

Or would that be a war crime, punishable by a rain of hypersonic missiles on our cities and infrastructure?
These are not problems for our grandchildren, not even our kids. We will have to make those decisions ourselves. These weapons are that close to being deployed today. And it's only fair. We made 'em. But what do we do with them? The answer is ours to decide. But one thing is clear already to potential enemy pilots around the world today... It'd be a really, really bad idea to attack a U.S. Navy warship.

About the Author Kent Ballard
Kent Ballard is a masterful writer who lives near Brazil, Indiana. While he made his living as a Journeyman Machinist for many years, he also fascinated a small group of writer friends with his tales of history, adventure, and of the military. With Veteran’s Day approaching, we thought this would be a great reminder of our warriors, past, present and future.
We’ve been trying nad trying to get Kent to write more and more stories . . . but he can be a stubborn cuss at times. We’ll keep trying. He has the knack.

Districting Commission as a response to the letter printed in the October 24 edition of The Paper. The creation of voting districts in Escondido came as a result of a suit filed against Escondido for violation of California's Voting Rights Act. Rather than going to trial, both the plaintiffs and defendants agreed to a settlement which included the creation of the districts. Those district boundaries were to be drawn by the Independent Districting Commission, for which I volunteered to serve.
Much of the process of drawing those district boundaries is governed by federal and state laws and by case law. For example, the settlement (also known as the Consent Decree) requires the Commission to do the following (listed in priority order by the court): 1. Comply with U.S. Constitution, including creating districts with reasonably equal populations case law has defined "reasonably equal population" as plus or minus 5%; 2. Districts must comply with the federal Voting Rights Act (VRA); 3. Districts must be geographically contiguous and encouraged to have geographic compactness;
and under. The Brooks Theatre is located at 217 N. Coast Hwy., Oceanside.
‘Social Butterfly’ Cont. on Page 7
4. Districts must be drawn with respect for geographic integrity of any neighborhood and any community of interest, including racial, ethnic, and language minority, to the extent possible without violating the requirements of 1, 2, or 3. Communities of interest are not to include relationships with political parties, incumbents, or political candidates; 5. District boundaries are not to be drawn for the purpose of favoring or discriminating against an incumbent, political candidate, or political party. The place of residence of any incumbent or political candidate must not be considered in the drawing of boundaries.
It is important to note that the Consent Decree requires the commission to seek input from the public regarding communities of interest so that the commission can consider these neighborhoods and communities in drawing boundary lines. This could include communities such as mobile home parks and housing developments, among other things. The federal VRA prohibits the denial or abridgement of voting rights based on race or language minority (which includes Asian, Native American, Alaskan Native, or Spanish

The excited chatter dropped to silence as Claude carefully withdrew from his waistcoat pocket; a beautiful antique gold pocket watch and chain. "I want you to keep your eyes on this watch" said Claude, holding the watch high for all to see.
"It is a very special and valuable watch that has been in my family for six generations" said Claude. He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting
"Watch the watch --- Watch the watch ----Watch the watch" The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth.
The lights were twinkling as they were reflected from its gleaming surfaces.
A hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the movements of the gently swaying watch. They were hypnotized.

An elderly man was stopped by the police around 2 a.m was asked where he was going at that time of night.
The man replied, "I'm on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late." The officer then asked, "Really? Who's giving that lecture at this time of night?"
The man replied, "That would be my wife." ••••• I know a friend who boasts about his 27 years of married bliss. He fails to mention he’s been married for 35 years. The other years were, apparently, only “so-so.”

ment. A spade is all that’s required. When the blight struck, the potatoes turned slimy, black, and rotten in just days after they were dug from the ground.
A variety of causes were suspected, from static electricity to smoke bellowing from railroad locomotives, even the vapors from volcanoes. The actual cause was a fungus that had traveled from North America to Ireland. The Irish Potato Famine
The great influx of Irish immigrants to the United States during the mid-1800s can be attributed to the potato.
The Irish potato famine in 1845, was an unusual blight, which devastated Ireland’s potato crop, the basic staple in the population, causing the majority of people to depend upon the tuber for their diet. Most Irish peasants rented small plots of land from absentee British landlords, and because an acre of potatoes could support a family for a year, it became vital to survival. Potatoes are nutritious and easy to grow, requiring minimal labor, training or equip-
The blight resulted in what became known as “Famine Fever,” killing thousands of people suffering from cholera, dysentery, scurvy, typhus, and infestations of lice. Those trying to combat conditions reported seeing children crying with pain and looking “like skeletons, their features sharpened with hunger and their limbs wasted, so that little was left but bones.” Masses of bodies were buried without coffins only a few inches below the soil. Some 750,000 Irishmen died from the famine over the next decade to around 1855. The British-controlled government did little to help, merely forcing hundreds of thousands into workhouses.

Happy Holidays from San Marcos Dental Center
Wow… the year’s gone by so quickly and things have changed so rapidly in our country it amazes all of us. Our practice has also been going through a lot of change… but all for the better!
To start, we have two new additions to our staff. Both have turned out to be a gems! Ana is multitalented, able to handle both front and back office duties proficiently, and with her credentials heads our adult orthodontic programs of Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. Charlene is our second gem. She has earned her B.S. Biology degree from Cal State San Marcos, while coordinating their laboratories. Now her sights are set on attending dental school in the
We also have the rest of our great staff working hard to meet your dental needs as well. Hortencia DA is in charge of our Implant cases and responds to any messages we have received after hours. Sonia RDA is in charge of ordering all the supplies and equipment that we need for treatments. Mina RDHEF, our hygienist, is always busy keeping our patients up to snuff with their hygiene and overall health issues and concerns.
As for Dr. Hurt DDS, what can we say? He’s been treating his patients for over 30 years at The Center, and is always attending classes to expand his knowledge. Now, with Dr. Shepard’s help on Saturdays we can treat your general dental needs six days a week. We also handle your special needs w i th Invis align and 6 Month Smiles, Prosthetics (Implants, Dentures, 4 on 4, Cosmetic Crowns, and Laminates), Simple Endodontics, Sleep Apnea, Gum
Disease and TMJ co ncerns. Now, with our special financing we’re able to make it easier for those needing dental treatment to afford it.
Finally, we’re involved again with the community this Holiday Season with programs for those less fortunate as well in s upport of our mili tary families. Although our Candy Buy Back drive (for our troops overseas) ends this Saturday, we’re doing a canned food drive to help provide Thanksgiving Meal Boxes for families in need. For those of you that can help, please bring in any nonperishable canned vegetables or fruit, stuffing for turkey, canned cranberry sauce, yams, turkey gravy, instant potatoes, pumpkin pie ingredients, or Pillsbury Pie ingredients. Our office will get it all to the right place and all contributions will gladly be accepted. Call us at 760-734-
4311 if you have any questions.
May you all have a wonderful year’s end. We look forward to seeing you soon but don’t be shy… we’re always here for you, and be sure to use your dental insurance benefits for this year before you lose them. Have a Happy and Safe Holiday!

heritage). The federal VRA also prohibits practices that have the purpose or effect of discriminating on the basis of race or language minority status. Moreover, the federal VRA includes a section that allows for a district(s) within which the majority of the voting age population is comprised of minority voters, once evidence has been established that there has been racially polarized voting, which has been found to be the case in Escondido. Our preliminary district boundary map can be viewed by visiting the city's website at: www.escondido.org, then click on Preliminary Map.
As you can see, the process of district boundary drawing is highly regulated and, with the degree of transparency contained by the directives of the court, there isn't much room for any gerrymandering or protection of "special interest groups" some might believe. Being part of this Independent Districting Commission has been a unique and special privilege. Volunteering our time and effort towards such an important goal is not something to be taken lightly...and each member of the commission has shown their commitment to do the task as openly and objectively as possible. I hope that this discussion can result in having more Escondido residents come to our public hearings and offer constructive comments. I think I can speak for the entire commission when I say that we all want to do the right thing for our city. Bill Flores
Who’s In Charge?
Who runs Escondido? Is it Mayor Sam Abed? Is it City Manager Clay Phillips? Or is it Escondido Charter School founder and head, Dennis Snyder? Coach, as most seem to refer to him, seems to be able to do as he pleases with the charter school system and seems to control City Hall, when he so desires.
I would love to see this investigated. How many parents are willing to come forward? Does The Paper think this is worth checking into? Thomas S. Cowan Jr. Escondido, CA. 92027
Editor’s Note: We have edited Mr. Cowan’s letter as there were inferences and statements made that we, in our editorial judgment, felt were unfair and unwarranted.
Mr. Snyder is not an elected official. He is a private citizen who founded and operates a public school and holds his position with the support of the school’s board of trustees. Rock and Roll Origins?
Regarding Tom Morrow's article on the origins of Rock and Roll, I must dispute the following comment from Tom: "The term 'Rock and Roll" was coined by Dee-Jay Alan Freed back in 1951, as his way of describing the black rhythm and blues records he was playing."
I do not know who actually first coined the term Rock and Roll, but it was not Alan Freed in 1951. 1940's black Rhythm and Blues artist Wynonie Harris recorded several records in the late 1940's; including "Good Rockin Tonight" and "All She Wants to do is Rock". "All She Wants to do is Rock" was recorded April 13, 1949 and was Wynonie's second #1 smash and remained on the R&B charts for 18 weeks. One of the main lines in "All She Wants to do is Rock" is: "All she wants to do is rock, Rock and Roll all night long." I suspect that Alan Freed got the term Rock and Roll from Wynonie Harris in 1949. /s/ Alan Cutsinger Escondido, CA
More on Morrow’s Column
While recently vacationing in California in early Oct. I came across The Community Paper and saw Mr. Morrow's article "Historically Speaking" - The Advent of Rock n Roll. While true that many consider Allan Freed as the one to 'coin' the term "Rock n Roll" I have to point out that way back in 1949 a group known as the Doles Dickens Quintet released a recording called "Rock and Roll." This could be the very first use of the term credited to Freed. I have attached a Wav file should Mr. Morrow care to listen to the song. Regards,

How I Met My Sweetheart
A year ago I danced with a lovely woman on occasion. I asked her how we could dance more often? She implied I should re-join the Widows/Widowers Club of which I used to belong. That evening I danced with another lady who is a board member and she gave me information.
We exchanged phone numbers and email addresses. We corresponded and at the next dance I was charmed by her. She invited me to her place to help with a computer problem. As required I attended three dances and then re-joined the Widows/Widowers Club.
They have many events. My favorite is the two-dinner dances a month they have. At each event waiters bring the food to the table with great bands playing music this side of heaven. After dinning

Within the first five years of what was known among the Irish as “The Great Hunger,” the population of Ireland had been reduced by 25 percent.
Ireland wasn’t the only country to be struck by the fungus, known as Phytophthora infestans, it reached into northern Europe, primarily Norway, causing famine in that country. A great number of Norwegians also migrated to other countries in the New World and other parts of Europe.
During the decade of the famine, more than 2 million Irishmen left their homeland, migrating to the U.S., Canada, England, and Australia.
In November 1950 – The Chinese Red army entered the Korean War crossing over from Manchuria with some 300,000 troops. They nearly surrounded more than 12,000 Allied troops at the Chosin Reservoir in far North Korea near the Manchurian border. Those Allied troops, (mostly U.S. Marines, along with U.S. Army and British troops), who fought their way back to South Korea and survived have become known as the “Frozen Chosin”
because temperatures reached as low as 50 degrees below zero.
A good number of those men live among us here in the North County.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Save Energy this Winter
While the beginning of October may have felt more like summer, cooler temperatures are right around the corner. With it comes sweaters, jackets and making sure your home is ready for the change of season. Here are some energy saving tips: • Buy a power strip for your entertainment center – and remember to use it! Your TV, sound and gaming systems can all be plugged into a power strip and one button turns everything off. Some strips even come with a
remote control. • Appliances with glowing lights or displays (like coffee makers) use small amounts of electricity all day and night, which can add up over time. Unplug them when it makes sense. • You can get timers for your electronics that require charging – the timer allows you to plug in your phone or tablet computer and not waste electricity once it’s fully charged. • Make sure your heating system is in working order.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth The Computer Factory www.computerfactorysanmarcos.com Operating System Wars
A large part of Microsoft’s revenue comes from the sale of the Windows OS for PCs. Worldwide PC sales (notebooks and desktops) in 2013 are down about 10%. Corporate PC sales are up 6% but retail sales are down 20%. Corporations are still able to buy new PCs with Windows 7 direct from the sellers but Microsoft allows retailers to sell only Win 8 PCs. Since most small businesses and home users buy their PCs from retailers and don’t want Win 8, they tend to boycott retail PCs and hold on to their older Win 7 and Win XP computers.
Microsoft, Google, and Apple create the OS (operating systems) for the of types major three computing/communicatio ns devices, (PCs, Smart Phones and tablets). Microsoft dominates PCs with over 90% to Apples 7%. In Smart Phones and tablets, Google (Android) has a large and growing lead over Apple’s rapidly shrinking presence and Microsoft has a small (3-5%) presence in both Smart phones and tablets
A survey of PCs accessing the Internet in October showed the following percentages. Win7=46%, XP=31%, Windows 8=8%, Apple=7%, Vista=4%, all others=4%. Interestingly, Win 7 actually out-gained Win 8 in market share last month, an indication that more small business and home users are discovering they can still buy their new desktop and notebook PCs with Win 7 or even XP from independent American builders like The Computer Factory.
Suspended Testing Suspends Progress
ment can continue simultaneously.
At The Computer Factory we don’t sell or repair phones, tablets or Apple products. Our focus is on Microsoft Windows based desktop and notebook PCs so we are keenly interested in the strategies, counter-strategies, conniving and espionage among these three deadly enemies.
A controversial education bill passed the legislature during the last week of session. It passed without bipartisan support and was met with opposition from U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. The bill, AB 484, suspends standardized tests, which are taken annually by students in grades 2-11.
Standardized tests provide a benchmark for student performance statewide. The tests allow school districts, teachers, parents, and students to review student improvement each year.
Suspending testing will stunt education progress in California. AB 484 needlessly stops testing for the 2014 school year to allow tests to be re-designed. I believe current testing and new test develop-
business and home users into dumping their Win XP PCs in favor of new PCs with Win 7 or Win 8. Microsoft is terrified of being forced to extend Win XP support again if nearly one third of PCs are still using it when April 2014 rolls around.
Microsoft’s arch enemy Google is enjoying the entire scenario. The fact that Microsoft is losing billions because users won’t abandon XP is immensely satisfying to Google and they never miss an opportunity to rub salt into the wounds. In 2011 Microsoft tried to prod users away from XP by announcing that Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), would not support Win XP. Google promptly announced that Google’s Chrome would continue to support XP. Later that year Microsoft
sulked while Chrome raced past IE to become the leading Internet browser. Last month Google announced that it would continue to provide security upgrades for Win XP through April of 2015. Since then several other Internet software providers have pledged continuing XP support. Microsoft is furious. There is no reason to panic, Microsoft’s end of support will have little impact on most XP users. We do recommend moving to 64bit Win 7 (not Win 8) when buying a new PC unless there is a compelling reason to stay with 32bit XP. Whether or not to upgrade your XP or Vista PC to Win 7 is a good question. Give us a call and we’ll go over it with you.
With home and small business users holding on to their Win XP computers, Microsoft and the PC sellers are flooding the print and electronic media with dire warnings of a looming disaster when Microsoft stops XP support in April of 2014. These self-serving alarms are designed to stampede small
If we skip a year of testing, we skip a year of monitored progress.
Federal education leaders agree, and last week, the U.S. Department of Education responded to California’s decision with a letter stating that the federal government plans to withhold education funding until testing is restored. California is at risk of losing $3.52 billion in federal education funds. We cannot afford to lose education funding or the test data that supports student progress.

Could Partisanship be on the Wane in Sacramento?
It may seem hard to believe today after the recent debates on gun control, co-ed bathrooms and non-citizen jurors, but California has a long history of bipartisanship. As a result of reforms passed in the early 20th Century, partisan identification was downplayed. By cross-filing in multiple party primaries, a candidate could essentially turn a primary victory into a general election win. For example, Earl Warren cross-filed during the 1946 gubernatorial election and won the Democratic, Republican and Progressive Party primaries, resulting in a November general election win with over 90 percent of the vote.
While a return to the genteel era of the early 20th Century is unlikely, term limits are forcing many powerful, partisan and well-known legis-
lators into retirement. The last election cycle sent 38 new Assembly-members to Sacramento, and special elections will soon make them a majority of the 80member body. The 2014 elections will send even more of the `old guard’ packing. While these changes may help transform the Legislature in 2014, the heated debates about hotbutton issues often obscure the fact that bills frequently pass with overwhelming bipartisan support.
I sense a new ability to work together with many of my colleagues across the aisle. While serious policy issues will continue to result in strong disagreements and intense debate, there seems to be a growing ability to join together to support legislation that benefits all Californians, regardless of party identification.

Pastor Richard Huls, Retired
Once a year in November the American people are able to celebrate the holiday of THANKSGIVING. It is an official government honored day celebrated in memory of the Pilgrim/Indian feast in early American history. Out of that experience we enjoy what we think they ate – turkey, pumpkin, squash, etc.
What the day means for most in this modern age is a vacation, family gatherings, over-indulgence, presidential mercy (sparing the turkey), and some
On this day I believe it is both necessary and opportune to truly be thankful. Yet, it is easier said than done. We are a people accustomed to the good life, often taking for granted all we have. This country enjoys abundant resources, tremendous productivity, above world average prosperity, and individual access to most of it. How do we regard all of this? For some it is a desire for more. For others it is all there to consume. In the pursuit there is little time for thanks.
However, the need for thanks is there. To pause, indeed stop, and consider the blessings we enjoy is a mandate. Whether one wants to thank God as the giver of our abundance or just express a heart of gratitude either is necessary. To not do this is to live a life of waste and ultimate decadence. Our challenge is to say, “THANKS,” preferably as the Psalmist in Psalm 107, “Give thanks unto the Lord for He is good.”
