by Howard D. “Deacon” Hively
Howard D. “Deacon” Hively, from Norman, OK, was one of the genuine “characters” of the 71 Eagle Squadron and later the 4th Fighter Group. With exception of a two and one half month leave, Hively flew with the Group until 1945. The following is from “The Hively Accounts” in “Escort to Berlin: The 4th Fighter Group in World War II” by Garry L. Fry and Jeffrey L. Ethell •••••
In the summer of 1943 the 4th Fighter Group was often assigned advanced base missions. We had been recently equipped [the previous March] with America’s answer to the Hot War, P-47s, or as the British called them Thunderbolts.
Fighter pilots were then and always will be a breed of their own, and in their own language this over-sized shortrange, cumbersome fighter plane was most often referred to as the “jug.” No doubt the most dominant question in the minds of all those who flew them was, “Do you think the airplane is here to stay or will the P-47 take its place?”
Anyway, on the occasion of 15 June 1943 we had been ordered to an advanced base, Tangmere, on the south coast of England to cover an air strike against the submarine pens at St. Nazaire. The only question in our minds [concerning the order] was that part stating, “Class A uniforms will be worn!” There was no question about the advanced base – we had to shorten the range in order to reach St. Nazaire – but can you imagine wearing that dress uniform in the closed confines of a fighter cockpit? Just picture yourself all dressed up in a tuxedo sitting in an outdoor john with tight straps across your lap and shoulders, then hang on your person 80 pounds of equipment, including Mae West, back pack chute, oxygen tube, mask, bail-out bottle, dinghy, escape kit, a large knife, Colt .45 and God knows what sundries that each fighter pilot personally believed necessary to complete his misThe Paper - 760.747.7119

Needless to say a fighter pilot’s liver is no bed of roses at any time, but the narrow, greasy confines of a fighter cockpit do not lend themselves to Class A uniforms. Where do you put your hat, let alone your bottle of rum?
When we arrived at Tangmere in our dress pinks, sponged of grease with 100 octane gas, our British allies were completely impressed. Their oft amazed question of, “Do you always wear those uniforms on a mission?” were answered with, “What else?” Sooo, before first light we had completed our briefing, climbed into our
“jugs” and set off to do battle with the wily Hun.
The facts of that particular day have never been quite clear, or perhaps they have only been forgotten in the aftermath of a long war and what followed on that day. We did go round and round – I do believe the submarine pens were clobbered by the bombers, though I never established this. But the leader’s long awaited order of “Let’s get the hell out of here” rang across the air, all 48 intrepid fighter pilots turned as one and headed home. After all that’s where rum came
It didn’t take long, however, to ascertain that something was just not quite right. First thing I noticed were two small streams of blue smoke jutting forward over my shoulders and somewhat of an increased cockpit temperature. Everything else was all right though … all my buddies were close by, the sky was beautiful, clear and blue. We hadn’t really had a tough “Do”; the opposition had been less than meager, and after all, we were headed home. Then, all of a sudden, the fit hit

the Shan! When my boots got too hot to be comfortable, I spied all at once a fire beyond the firewall on the cockpit floor. Gauges went haywire, temperatures out of the green into the red, and the rudder pedals became so hot my feet were burning up. All fighter pilots are quick of mind, along with righteous, able and loveable, so with all my inherent perspicacity, it only took five or ten minutes to come to the complete realization that this cockpit was no longer tenable.
Someone pulled alongside. I think it was Pierce Winningham McKennon, God rest his soul. He said, “I think you’d better get out of there, Deac.” “I’m thinking about it Mac, but it looks awful wet down there; maybe I can hold on a little while longer.” “We’ll follow you down, don’t worry,” said Mac.
“O.K.” said I, “but I’m gonna wait for awhile, if I can. That’s one helluva step!” At that time, we were at about 27,000 feet. I know I had not yet even considered the possibility I would have to leave the
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Crisis at the U.S. Canadian Border
The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week, sparking Canadian's calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration. Republicans winning the Senate is prompting an exodus among left-leaning citizens who fear they'll soon be required to hunt, pray, and live according to the Constitution. Canadian border farmers say it's not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, global warming activists, and "green" energy proponents crossing their fields at night. "I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled
securities of that small cockpit for isn’t it true that God takes care of fools, drunks and fighter pilots? Nevertheless, it wasn’t long before that possibility became more than apparent to this God-fearing fighter pilot … all of a sudden the propeller stopped, frozen in a four-bladed apparition. The fire grew hotter and hotter, ‘til I had to tuck my feet up under the seat. My boots were burning and it became damned uncomfortable in there.
Decisions, decisions, decisions! How to get out? Should I merely climb out, step off the wing and hope or should I just roll it over and fall out or should I “pop out?” All of these methods had been discussed over and over amongst us fighter drivers. Next to women, hanger flying was the most valued of all conversational subjects. To “pop out” meant to wind all nose trim forward ‘til one had to exert a great deal of back pressure on the stick in order to keep the plane level. Then, much like pulling a tooth, count three, shove the stick forward and virtually “pop out.” Actually, all one had to do is push the plane away, but appearance was as if the pilot popped out. I decided I’d take the easiest of the three methods and just roll the ’47 over and fall out. Meanwhile, back in the cock-
in the barn," said Southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota . “The producer was cold, exhausted and hungry. He asked me if I could spare a latte and some freerange chicken. When I said I didn't have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?" In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields, but they just keep coming.
Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals near the Canadian border, pack them into electric cars and drive them across the border where they are simply left to fend for themselves after the battery dies. "A lot of them are not prepared for our rugged conditions," an Ontario border patrolman said. "I found one carload without a single bottle of Perrier drinking water. They did have a nice little Napa Valley cabernet, though, and some kale chips." When liberals are caught, they're sent back across the border, wailing loudly that they fear retribution from conservatives. Rumors are that plans are to build re-education camps where liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer
pit, I had switched the radio to our emergency channel [D for dinghy]. I had all the Mayday going I could muster in my best devil-may-care manner, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday, Heyday, Payday,” which it was. Control kept calling for a fix and a long count. I started off in the proper manner, like “1…2…3…4…5…6…7…8…9 …10,” but it was getting shorter and shorter as my house got hotter and hotter. Finally, at about 7,000 feet, I figured the time had finally come so I unhooked all the straps, laid my hat down on the floor and started to roll it over. “Damn it!” I just couldn’t do it. Every time I’d get halfway over I’d let loose the controls and grab the sides to hold on. It wasn’t easy to let myself go, in any way, let alone to just give up and fall upside down out of an airplane. Besides, I came to the conclusion right then and there, “It ain’t fittin’ or proper for a fighter pilot to leave in such a manner.” Something had to be done! About that time control called once again for a long count. I hurriedly rolled all the trim forward, gave the count, “12345678,” said goodbye, popped the stick forward and left. Never before or since have I had such a feeling. I certainly didn’t pop out, but seemed to float up and over my airplane and just hang there. I could
and study the Constitution.
Recently, liberals have turned to ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have been disguised as senior citizens taking a bus trip to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching a half- dozen young vegans in blue-hair wig disguises, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior citizens about Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney to prove that they were alive in the '50s. "If they can't identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we become suspicious about their age," an official said.
Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organicbroccoli shortage, buying up all the Barbara Streisand c.d.'s, and renting all the Michael Moore movies. "I really feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can't support them," an Ottawa resident said. "How many arthistory majors does one country need?" GIFT WRAPPING TIPS FOR MEN
This is the time of year when we think back to the very first Christmas when the Three Wise Men: Gaspar, Balthazar and Herb went to see the baby
look down and see all the straps hanging straight up … there was my hat [helmet] hanging straight up from its cord. I could see the fire and count seven bullet holes in the left wing. I remember being quite concerned about those for I hadn’t even known any Hun had gotten close. ‘Course, as the old adage goes, “It’s always the one you don’t see that gets you!” I just seemed to hang there, then--W H I S H—I was free, falling! The feeling was one of freedom, total unattachment, softly suspended, free of machines and ties of any sort. It was wonderful. I’ve always meant to jump on purpose someday—never have. ‘Bout the only feeling I’ve had that came close was with a nurse I once knew—she made me float for a night or two! “Wake up Deac!” I found myself yelling. “Wake up Deac!” Frantically I reached for the Dring and couldn’t find it. It was supposed to be just over my heart but it wasn’t. It was clear around in the middle of back. I could hardly reach it. Wouldn’t you know I had borrowed the chute while mine was being repacked. I got two fingers around it and jerked as hard as I could. It came loose but slipped through my fingers and went sailing off into space.

Jesus; and according to the Book of Matthew, "presented unto Him gifts; gold, frankincense, and myrrh."
These are simple words, but if we analyze them carefully, we discover an important, yet often overlooked, theological fact. There is no mention of wrapping paper. If there had been wrapping paper, Matthew would have said so: "And lo, the gifts were inside 600 square cubits of paper. And the paper was festooned with pictures of Frosty the Snowman. And Joseph was going to throweth it away, but Mary saideth unto him, she saideth, 'Holdeth it! That is nice paper! Saveth it for next year!' And Joseph did rolleth his eyeballs. And the baby Jesus was more interested in the paper than the frankincense." But these words do not appear in the Bible, which means that the very first Christmas gifts were NOT wrapped. This is because the people giving those gifts had two important characteristics: 1. They were wise. 2. They were men.
Men are not big gift wrappers. Men do not understand the point of putting paper on a gift just so somebody else can tear

“Damn!” And then I watched the chute coming out. Surprisingly, it came out sideways, not up; and what’s more it looked old and dirty. I kept thinking, “I hope it opens.” I don’t know what I would have done if it hadn’t, but as it kept coming out, I kept thinking, “I hope it opens.” It did…Whoomp! I looked up and it was beautiful. I look down and there right before me and just out of my reach was my Dring. “Damn!” I thought again, “there goes a pound.” In those days that was $4.04. Looking down again. I found my airplane some distance away, heading straight down. I watched fascinated, then Boom! It exploded, sending the tail section sailing end over end, off to the left, as the nose went straight down and kersplashed into the water! There was a helluva rush of hot air that almost seemed to stop me in mid-air. I came down again with a small Whoomp, looking up at my chute and found that it had collapsed on one side. Then I started to swing. I’d go sailing way up, almost horizontal, and then the other side of the chute would collapse before I’d start down in the other direction. Way up, then the other side would collapse, and down I’d go again. What a ride! It was, to say the least, a bit breezy. I tried to pull on the risers but that only made it worse. I must have been pulling on the wrong side— anyway, I quit that. I looked down again and my dinghy was hanging on a strap attached to my Mae West about six or eight feet below. With the water getting close, I knew I was going to have to swim. “One last cigarette” popped into my mind. Though the chute straps were tight I could hardly get at the case, I somehow got one out and got it lit. I knew it would be the last for a while.
Since I didn’t want to be weighed down with anything unnecessary if I was going into those cold waters, I started to unload. I pulled out my knife and threw it away—hated to see it go—dumped my cigarette lighter and case, reached in and pulled out my .38 revolver. It was a beauty— pearl handles and everything. My father had given it to me to take to the wars and I’d carried it for years. I started to throw it away and then I thought, “Hell, I’ve never fired it.” So I let loose with all six shots and gave her the old heave-ho. “Damn!” I hated to see that go too.
I turned the release dial on the chute harness, ready to drop out just above the water. I was close, but it was real hard to tell exactly ‘cause I was still
swinging in a pretty good arc. Then—swish—across the top of one wave, through the next and S P L A S H into the next.
Man! I hit the release dial so hard it almost knocked me out. I hadn’t realized how hard the wind was blowing. The waves were enormous and I hit in almost a horizontal position with the chute directly behind me. As I felt the harness leave, I reached over my shoulder to grab it, but that thing was traveling straight across the water like a speedboat. There wasn’t a chance and that was the last I ever saw of it.
Down I went. I don’t know how deep the Channel is at that point, but I’ve sworn over and over again I couldn’t have been far from the bottom. Paddle— paddle—paddle. I paddled and kicked ‘till I reached the top, took a big breath, and down I went again. That uninflated dinghy was worse than a 180 pound anchor. I couldn’t get my Mae West inflated as the pull string was stuck behind the CO2 bottles. They had gotten wet and swelled up. I was frantic! The third time I surfaced I said to myself, “Deac, you got to do something!” As I went down for the fourth time, I deliberately opened my eyes, took a careful look at the CO2 bottles, held my breath ‘till I thought I would bust and managed to free one. When I came up that time, I found that I could stay up. What a relief! I took my time and got the other one undone … then it was great.
I don’t know how long I laid there just floating and breathing, but I could think of how high the waves were. They sure look different when you’re in them than they do when you’re above them. Anyway, I finally hauled the dinghy up and started to open it. I got the canvas cover off real easy [all I had to do was unsnap it], but then came the fun. All of us had sat on those damn things for years. Never had I ever looked one over before. The only thing that any of us had ever done was cuss and complain about the position of the C02 bottle in them, for that was always placed in the most uncomfortable spot anyone could pick, especially after sitting on it for hours at a time in a cramped cockpit. Nevertheless, I found I knew exactly where it was and I knew how to open it … just twist the knob. But twist as hard as I could, I couldn’t get it open. Then I had the bright idea—“If all else fails, read the instructions.” Sure enough, it said, “Remove safety pin, twist cap,” I did! The dinghy went W-h-o-o-f and almost exploded. It filled up—but my hand had froze to the bottle! Damn it was cold … not only my hand, but all of me. They say the
Channel is colder in June than in December due to the water cooling more slowly and consequently heating more slowly than the land. This I will assure you, it’s damned cold in June! I thought to myself, “Don’t pull your hand off the bottle.” I remembered touching my tongue to my sled runner when I was a kid and the disastrous results. I just lay there ‘till the bottle came loose on its own accord. “Now get in that dinghy.” Boy, that was a problem, especially in rough water. I have no idea how many times I tried. If that thing hadn’t been attached to me, I would have lost it many times over. Finally, I think I just reached out and pulled it under me—I think—but once in, I felt the battle was over. It was dryer than the Channel, not much, but it was dryer and what’s more, it was a real treasure trove.
The first thing I found was a little package of six red flares. All my buddies were buzzing around, every once in a while coming straight over the dinghy at less than zero feet. I was positive they saw me, but I knew that I should let them know I was all right, so out came a flare. It was about as big around as my thumb and say, eight inches long. There were directions all over the case. They read, “Two red flares—unscrew cap—lift tab— hold at arm’s length.” I did and nothing! I couldn’t read the rest at arm’s length so I brought it back and it said, “Pull tab sharply toward you.” I did and quickly stuck my hand out to its fullest extension. The thing went bzzzzzzzzzzzz and all of a sudden BOOM!
I watched it go sailing up. A big, bright, red ball of fire made a high, beautiful arc. But, damn it, all I got was one red ball when there should have been two. My hands were wet and the recoil shot it right out of my hand into the water. “I’ll fix that,” I thought to myself. “This time I’ll get two.” I held my hand at arm’s length all right, but rested it firmly on my knee, unscrewed the cap, lifted the tab and pulled it sharply toward me. Again it went bzzzzzzzzzzzz and, BOOM! The recoil was tremendous … it damn near busted my knee. Honest, I limped for weeks afterward, and that undoubtedly was the worst injury I received in the whole mission. Then it became a game. I had four left so I tried to hit the guys as they came thundering over me. I never did, but I came real close. I missed Jim Clark by a foot or less. Afterwards, when we talked about it, none of the guys ever saw a flare. Fact is, they didn’t even see me in the dinghy, but
I didn’t know that then and was as happy as a bug in a rug, thinking all the while that everybody saw me and that a boat would soon be there. Little did I know.
The flares were fun, but pretty soon they were all gone and so were all the guys. They just disappeared, as if by magic, and there I was all alone. It was a lonesome old feeling. The dinghy seemed to get smaller and smaller, the waves bigger and bigger as I got colder and colder. I paddled and paddled. That kept me a little warmer, so I paddled and paddled some more. Then I got brave—when I reached the top of a wave I would stand up to see how far I had gotten. In the distance I could see the coast of England but right behind me, and even closer, was France. I just wasn’t making any headway. Every once in awhile, as I would stand up on top of a wave, I would fall in. That little dinghy acted more like a cork than a boat. Each dunking brought a lot of water with it, both into the boat and into me. Eventually I found that it was warmer with the water in the dinghy than it was to bail it out, so I stopped bailing. My body temperature heated up the water. I got sort of adept at standing on that thing without falling in. I could ride it like a surfboard but I was tired, bored and I was getting sleepy. I knew this was a bad sign. I had to stay awake or freeze. I looked through the dinghy for something to keep me awake and that’s when it became a treasure trove. First, I found a sea anchor. How it was supposed to work was beyond me. At the time that little funnel didn’t look as though it would anchor anything, but I threw it out anyway.
I found a sail with directions all over it. Finally I got it all rigged up with the aid of the detailed directions and had a ball sailing for over an hour. It was bright red and gave quite a feeling of security with all its color. Then I found a fishing line and hooks—no bait. A nice little waterproof package contained malted milk tablets, a chocolate bar, dry matches [no cigarettes], halazone tablets, two compasses, a sawblade, first-aid kit … and, what’s more, 2,000 francs in French money. More rummaging produced plugs [two sizes] a band pump, a bailer and scads and scads of things I can’t recall. It was a genuine treasure trove but I began to feel sad that I had used up all my flares because I was wondering when someone was going to come and get me.

On December 14th at about 9:50PM, Escondido Police responded to a report of a shooting in the 1900 block of East Grand Avenue. Officers arrived on scene within minutes but the suspect and victim had left the scene. Shortly after, Escondido Police Dispatch was notified that a shooting victim had been transported to Palomar Medical Center by family members. The adult male victim was shot twice but both wounds are considered non-life threatening. The name of the victim is not being released at this time.
During the subsequent investigation it was determined that the victim and the suspect had previous contacts with each other and the victim was shot after becoming involved in a physical altercation. The shooter was accompanied by two other males, who physically assaulted the victim after he was shot. The suspects fled the scene prior to officers arriving on scene. Police located a vehicle that was potentially driven by the suspects at a mobile home park in the 1500 block of West Valley Pkwy. The Escondido Police SWAT team and detectives searched the residence associated with the vehicle for the suspects but they were not located. Escondido Police Detectives are looking for witnesses that may information about this

As advertised, Evelyn and I went to the Merle Haggard Concert last Wednesday evening.
I was delighted to learn that it was the first sold out performance of this season for the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. That seems to bear out advice that I have been offering for the past 10-15 years . . . "book artists the public wants to see and hear and they'll pay to see them and fill the concert hall." For too long we had elitist type entertainment . . . good entertainment, excellent artists, but with limited demand. So, a concert hall that seats 1500 would draw a crowd of, maybe, 500. Hard to make money with

Information can also be provided anonymously by calling the Escondido Police tipline at 760-743-8477 (TIPS) or by visiting the police website at http://police.escondido.org/ Anti-Gang Grants Awarded to Escondido and Vista
Thanks to a $1.5 million grant to both Escondido and Vista you can expect even more in the way of anti-gang programs in the coming three years. The California Gang Reduction Intervention and Prevention agency awarded the grant. Funding starts in January.
This marks a substantial increase, double, in the amount received by this agency. In prior years grants would run from $250,000 to $500,000 - plus the cities have a longer period of time in which to apply the funds. In prior years the grants were only awarded for two years. Lt. Neal Griffin of the Escondido Police Department confirmed that the funds would be used to establish a well structured and orchestrated enforcement strategy.

Dear Mr. Davis: , "The Paper" is probably (no definitely) the most entertaining newspaper that I have ever read. I pick it up at Charlie's Restaurant every Thursday night and read it through thoroughly the rest of the evening.
Kit Bonner's article "Don't Shoot! We're Republicans!" in today's issue was of itself very interesting and entertaining but brought to my mind Civil War Commodore William D.

Kudos to new CEO Jerry Van Leeuwen for having the vision to work with top professionals in the booking of concerts and other presentations. Not only did Haggard sell out but several other presentations in the near future are almost sold out. I expect exciting things to happen at the Center for the Arts with Jerry at the helm. While I was pleased with the fact that the Center for the Arts, California, has sold out the concert, I was somewhat disappointed in the performance(s).
The opening act, Jamestown Revival, was . . . . loud. Probably very talented ... but we could not hear the lyrics of their songs because their instruments were playing way louder than their voices. We could tell they had good voices and harmonized well . . . but if you can't hear or understand the lyrics . . . then an important part of the presentation gets lost. Surely, we thought, when Merle Haggard and The Strangers come on, that will be fixed.
Music was too loud. Even Haggard songs with lyrics with which I was familiar I had a hard time hearing because the band was just too damned loud. And that's the difference between performing in a recording studio and a concert hall. In a recording studio the recording engineer balances the sound so the instrumentals do NOT drown out the artist's lyrics. In a concert hall . . . there is little sound balance. No question but what The Strangers are a fantastic band. They've been with Haggard since 1964. That's 50 years.
The musical artistry and talent are there, the melodies are there . . . but they'd still be there if the band played at about half the volume.
What I love about Merle Haggard is his songwriting . . . his lyrics . . . how he weaves a story of love lost, of loneliness, of regret . . . and then his fantastic song styling with that inimitable voice of his. He has a certain "cry" in his voice and now and then will slide way down into the deeper registers . . . that captivates the ear and soul.

it off. This is not just my opinion; this is a scientific fact based on a statistical survey of two guys I know. One is Rob, who said the only time he ever wraps a gift is "if it's such a poor gift that I don't want to be there when the person opens it." The other is Gene, who told me he does wrap gifts, but as a matter of principle never takes more than 15 seconds per gift. "No one ever had to wonder which presents daddy wrapped at Christmas," Gene said. "They were the ones that looked like enormous spitballs." I also wrap gifts, but because of some defect in my motor skills, I can never completely wrap them. I can take a gift the size of a deck of cards and put it the exact center of a piece of wrapping paper the size of a regulation volleyball court, but when I am done folding and taping, you can still see a sector of the gift peeking out. (Sometimes I camouflage this sector with a marking pen.) If I had been an ancient Egyptian in the field of mummies, the lower half of the Pharaoh's body would be covered only by Scotch tape. On the other hand, if you give my wife a 12-inch square of wrapping paper, she can wrap
a C-130 cargo plane. My wife, like many women, actually likes wrapping things. If she gives you a gift that requires batteries, she wraps the batteries separately, which to me is very close to being a symptom of mental illness. If it were possible, my wife would wrap each individual volt. My point is that gift-wrapping is one of those skills like having babies that come more naturally to women than to men. That is why today I am presenting: GIFT-WRAPPING TIPS FOR MEN:
* Whenever possible, buy gifts that are already wrapped. If, when the recipient opens the gift, neither one of you recognizes it, you can claim that it's myrrh.
* The editors of Woman's Day magazine recently ran an item on how to make your own wrapping paper by printing a design on it with an apple sliced in half horizontally and dipped in a mixture of food coloring and liquid starch. They must be smoking crack. * If you're giving a hard-towrap gift, skip the wrapping paper! Just put it inside a bag and stick one of those little adhesive bows on it. This creates a festive visual effect that

I heard an airplane! Could it be the Nazis coming to strafe? They did that, you know! Was it one of ours? And there it was, coming right towards me … a Walrus! Not one of the animals, but a Walrus airplane, a British seaplane. Round and round it went just above me. I thought, “I know it’s rough, but couldn’t they even attempt a landing?” Really at heart I knew they couldn’t but all of a sudden it leveled off and came right at me. There was a bomb hanging under each wing—one of them let loose and came sailing right at me! I hit the drink! When I came up, there it was six feet away and smoking like a fiend. Down I went again! The next time I came up for air, I realized it was a marker, a smoke bomb. And smoke it did, a thick, voluminous, greenish-yellow cloud. I crawled back in the dinghy and watched the Walrus disappear behind the waves. It was gone. “Must be a boat around here some place,” but I couldn’t find one. I stood up again on the dinghy and looked around—but no boat. Damn, it was cold. I knew I couldn’t last much longer. All I wanted to do was lie down and sleep. I paddled some more, but that didn’t last long either. I was too tired.
I stood up again—a BOAT!? Yes, by God, a boat! But it was going in the wrong direction! I yelled! I yelled at the top of my lungs. I yelled louder than anybody had ever yelled before. I stood up and waved the little flag I had found in the dinghy as hard as I could. I waved that little flag so hard that it went sailing off its little stick like a newly launched bolo. I waved frantically, forgot where I was, jumped up and down, and fell in once again. I was back in that dinghy and up again before you could say Eisenhower…and behold! It was coming to me. They are not close enough. They ought to get closer.” They stood off what looked to be a mile, but maybe it was only 50 yards or so, still in the water. There were a whole bunch of guys standing up on the deck looking at me. One of them had a rope in his hands and started swinging it like a cowboy. “What are they going to do, lasso me?” The guy let loose and that rope—it came sailing across the water like a shot out of a cannon. I watched it come on and on until I had to duck. It would have hit right in the head. What a toss! I’ll never forget that one. I bet the guy would have had a great future with the Cincinnati Reds. When I got ahold of that rope, it was

all she wrote. I cut a swath through that water like a Gar Wood speedboat. They pulled so hard and fast I had a hard time holding on.
Then another problem arose. How did one get aboard one of these boats? They were well over 80 feet long [87 I think] but the closer I got the bigger it got and the waves were bigger still. I let loose of that rope in a hurry, for all of a sudden the boat went up on one wave and I went down. The boat started down and I started up. I thought the boat would crash into me. I paddled backward as fast as I cold as the boat went rushing past. Up, up, up I went ‘till I looked down and saw the white faces of the guys on board looking up at me. Down I went and up they came. This continued several times. Finally they lowered some sort of net over the side, and as the boat went by for the ninth time, I reached out and caught hold of the net. Just to give some idea how high those waves were … I’m almost six feet, must be eight feet with my arms outstretched. The dinghy was four feet long and attached to me by a strap eight feet long, so eight and four and eight is 20. As I hung onto the net, I looked down and we were

On New Year’s Eve, at 7:30pm, ring in the New Year at an extraordinary, free, historic event – the Spreckels Organ Centennial Concert, celebrating the 100th anniversary (to the day) of the Great Spreckels Organ and Pavilion in San Diego’s Balboa Park. There will be a Grand Processional, 150-voice choir, brass fanfare, musicians from the House of Scotland and Cameron Highlanders bagpipe bands, time-machine visit from John D. Spreckels, world premiere composition by civic organist Carol Williams, new pipe unveiling, fireworks, and more. Admission and parking are free. Live music and a bigscreen display of historic photos precede the concert at the pavilion beginning at 7:30pm.
all out of the water. I swear, at that time the waves seemed not 20 but more like 50 feet high.
That was it, however. Those guys took over completely. As my head came over the gunnel, hands reached from somewhere above and grabbed me by the hair, shoulders, arms, back of the neck, anywhere they could get hold, and up I came to have a cigarette stuffed in my mouth. When my feet hit the deck, out came the cigarette and someone threw a shot of rum down my throat. I promptly threw up all over the guy in front of me. I was just too full of saltwater to accommodate anything else, let alone 180 proof Navy rum. It didn’t seem to bother them, though, as I was whisked down below and stripped of all my clothes. I tried to help, like unbuttoning my shirt, but I was so cold and shaking so hard that I finally just tore them off and relaxed. They came at me with towels and 44 hands, rubbing and rubbing ‘till I was raw on both sides. I kept screaming and finally they stopped. Then came long underwear, a pair of soft, flannel grey trousers and a beautiful white turtleneck wool sweater, tennis shoes and

The warm started in with a speck clear down in the middle of my bones and then slowly started out millimeter by silly millimeter. I could feel it reach the outer edge of my bones and start into my flesh ‘till finally it permeated my whole being. That nurse I mentioned could never compete, and I mean never!
I looked up and saw there were six happy, smiling faces looking down. “How do you feel? Would you like some medicine?” The medicine was a whole gallon of what I knew to be that Navy rum, but I remembered my experience with that on the deck a few minutes before. I wasn’t about to be caught again. “No thanks,” I said and every face fell. I got the message. It was medicine, medicinal rum, and could only be broken out if there were a patient aboard. “O.K.,” I said, “I’ll try it once more.” A GI water glass appeared and was filled to the brim. I tasted it very carefully. It was good, real sweet, heavy and didn’t burn at all. I took another sip, every move followed by those quizzical fallen faces. I smiled, “Would you

to balance the ticket, and nominated Fillmore for Vice President. Fillmore came from a free state, had moderate anti-slavery views, and could help carry his populous state of New York. With the death of President Zachary Taylor, Fillmore became the 13th President, serving from 1850 to 1853. He was the last Whig Party President.
“The Captain.” They said.
What a ball! What a ride! What a piece of machinery! That thing had three big Rolls Royce engines. It could do a mile a minute and that’s how we completed the crossing all the way to Portsmouth, through hell and high water, spurred on by a fighter pilot’s enthusiasm and several sips of good ole Navy rum.
THIS IS A FRIGHTENING STATISTIC, PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST WORRISOME IN RECENT YEARS.
Millard Fillmore The Nearly Forgotten U.S. President
His name has been the brunt of jokes by comedians for years. He’s one of America’s little-known Presidents, yet Millard Fillmore held office and made important decisions in a critical time in United States history.
The 1848 Whig National Convention nominated U.S. Army Gen. Zachary Taylor (a slaveholder from Louisiana) for President. This upset supporters of Congressman Henry Clay and "Conscience Whigs" opposed to slavery in territories gained in the Mexican-American War. A group of Whig pragmatists sought
Fillmore was a lawyer from New York State, serving as a Congressman from 1833 to 1843. He became President at the height of the slavery crisis of 1850. When the Whig Party broke up in 1854–1856, Fillmore and other conservative Whigs joined the American Party, the political arm of the anti-immigrant, antiCatholic "Know-Nothing" movement, though he himself was not anti-Catholic. He was the American Party candidate for President in 1856, but finished third. During the Civil War, Fillmore denounced secession and agreed the Union must be maintained by force if necessary, but he was very critical of the war policies of President Abraham Lincoln.
When Fillmore became President, the nation became embroiled in the so-called "Crisis of 1850" with the Pro-slavery Southerners demanding all of the new territo-

dock, all dressed up in the turtleneck and grey flannel pants, and three sheets to the wind—one flapping due to the Navy rum no doubt—after having swum most of the English Channel and in Class “A” uniform at that. That ‘bout winds up the story, except you could have guessed, the cigarettes and chocolate bars and respect and admiration and comradeship that passed from one fighter pilot to that crew and the whole RAF rescue service.

Another thing I like about Haggard . . . he talks very little. He goes from one song and segues into another. He spoke, I think, about four times during the entire concert . . . and even then, it wasn't a lengthy discussion. He was there to play and sing music. We were there to listen and enjoy. Way too many musical artists today think it's important that they carry on a monologue or dialogue with the audience. It's not. The audience is there to listen to the music . . . not a speech or lecture.
They could learn from Merle Haggard . . . but Hag needs to get a handle on the volume controls of his band's amplifiers. Tone 'em down, so we can hear The Master sing.
I was also disappointed in that Hag did not sing several of my favorites, Fightin' Side of Me, Are the Good Times Really Over, Sing Me Back Home, and I Started Loving You Again Today. He did, however, wrap up his show with two top hits, "Momma Tried," and the finale, "Okie from Muskogee."

the two spotlights on either side of the stage coming on and shining in the audience’s eyes after each song? Very confusing and distracting. And irritating to a grumpy old guy.

The bus leaves at 1pm on Tuesday, December 30th, and returns at 1am, December 31st. On the way up and back you’ll have snacks and you’ll have dinner there. Dave tells me there are 12 floats you’d be working on . . . you just might wind up watching the float(s) you decorated on television on New Year’s Day!

Desktop or Notebook?
In the early days a “desktop” PC was one that sat flat on the desk so that you could put your monitor on top of it. “Towers” became popular in the 1990s and eventually eliminated the true “desktops.” Today “desktop” is a name for any PC that is not a “portable.”
The terms notebook or laptop are interchangeable and refer to any portable PC. In the early 1980s Osborne and the Kaypro were the first to mass produce “portables.” They cost around two thousand dollars, weighed over twenty pounds and would not fit in your carry-on luggage. Because of their size and weight they were often referred to as “luggables.” Historically “portables” have
cost more than “desktops” (towers) because of the features required to make them portable. They had to have batteries and because they had to be able to run on batteries for extended periods, they used slower, lower power CPUs. They had to be built tough enough to withstand the rigors of movement yet light enough to be manageable. Their components had to be small enough to cram together in a limited space and that required unique solutions for ventilation and heat dissipation. All these factors combined to keep “notebook” prices high compared to similarly featured “desktops.” Notebooks are also easier to lose or have stolen, easier to break, and more expensive to repair. For all these reasons many home and business users have avoided “notebooks” except when they really had to have a mobile solution.
It’s built in speakers save space, it can be closed up and stored when not in use and if necessary it can easily be moved and used virtually anywhere.
For users who want the comfort of a “desktop” (large 20-27 inch screen, full size keyboard and mouse) but also want a highly portable “notebook” there is an easy answer. Travel with your 12 to 15 inch “notebook” but when you’re working at home or in the office you can plug in a large monitor, a wireless keyboard and mouse then close the lid on the “notebook and shove it out of your way. Any notebook can be turned into a desktop. These days when customers come in to our shop looking for a new “desktop” we often show them the “notebook” alternative;
how a “notebook” might save them space while meeting all their needs with the bonus of portability. Modern “notebook” PCs cover nearly the entire price and performance range of desktops. High performance “notebooks” used for video editing, solids modeling and gaming can cost thousands of dollars. For most users “notebooks” in the $500 to $600 range will provide all the speed and features they can use. We carry a large selection of Acer WINDOWS 7 notebooks. Stop by and take a look. Your old desktop or notebook may even have trade-in value.
In recent years technology has progressed to the point where “notebooks” have become competitive with desktops in cost and performance. For some home users, it may be time to rethink that aversion to “notebooks.”
“Notebooks” with a 17 inch screen are called “desktop replacement notebooks” because they are intended to be used as “desktops.” They have large screens, full size keyboards and WiFi. Add a mouse and printer and it has all the features of a “desktop” plus some advantages.
"Arthritis Joint Pain Gone Within Weeks with Laser Therapy"
Living with Arthritis pain can affect every part of your life. It keeps you from enjoying the good things in life - time with grandkids, playing golf, even working in the yard.
Wouldn’t it be nice to get out of bed without pain for just one morning? Every time you try and push through the pain... like standing or walking for a long period of time.. . you pay for it for the next 2-3 days with even more pain. So, you take some pain pills... Pain Pills Are Not the Answer Do you remember the Vioxx scandal?
It was a medication designed to relieve arthritis pain... but like all drugs, it had side effects.
After years of use worldwide, the makers withdrew it from the market because of the overwhelming evidence it caused heart attacks and strokes.
There’s a time to use pain medications, BUT not before seeking a natural way to correct the CAUSE of the problem! Ask yourself... after taking all these pain medications... maybe for years... are you any better off?
Do You Have Any of these Arthritis-related Symptoms?
• Osteoarthritis • Rheumatoid Arthritis • Bursitis or Tendonitis • Shoulder Pain • Back pain • Knee Pain • Degenerative Joint Disease • Lumbar Disc Problems • Aching Pain in the Arms or Legs Pain Is Not Just "Old Age"
Have you had one doctor after another telling you this is just the natural process of the body getting
older- that you should expect to have Arthritis? Sure, if you don't take care of your damaged joints now as you get older they will get worse.
However, old age is not the cause of your Arthritis. I'll venture to say all 360 joints in your body are the same age, yet Arthritis and joint degeneration has not affected every one of them - only your previously injured joints that never healed properly.
My name is Dr. Stephen Heilman, D.C., owner and clinical director of North Inland Pain Relief Institute. Over the past 15 plus years, I have seen thousands of people come in to my office that were suffering from Arthritis pain. After treatment, they often leave the institute pain free or with significantly reduced pain. How can we achieve these results? It is quite simple: our years of experience and a dedication to the safest and most effective healing technologies - like Nexus Laser Therapy.
We have made it our institute's mission to help those suffering with chronic pain like you. What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is on the cutting edge of pain relief. Laser Therapy provides healing energy to the tissues that are swollen, painful, stiff, and inflamed from Arthritis. You are in pain because there is damage to the soft tissues of the body: muscles, tendons, ligaments, and the tissues surrounding the joints.Laser Therapy significantly benefits these injured tissues by speeding up the healing process, by decreasing pain, and by reducing inflammation faster than comparable therapies. Laser Therapy is used by elite pain centers around the world and by professional sports teams. In fact, we have the same laser used by over 40 professional sports teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Rangers, and Boston Celtics. So when Laser Therapy is added to the conventional physical therapies, the results are amazing. By the way, the treatment is painless! Is This Solution Right For You!
It's time for you to find out if this treatment is your Arthritis solution. For 20 days only, believe it or not, $47 will get you all The services I normally charge new patients $197 for! What does The Arthritis Laser Evaluation offer include? Take a look at what You will receive:
I. An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen... really listen... to the details of your case. 2. A complete joint, muscle and ligament exam. 3.

Feel the Improvement; Say "Yes" to Life again!
Arthritis Can Be Successfully Treated "I have suffered with a painful knee ever since the Vietnam War. Before this laser treatment, I had pain whenever I went up or down the stairs. I went through several injections, wore knee braces, and had all kinds of tests and none of it worked at all. Dr. Heilman thought that Laser therapy could help me and he was right. The treatment felt really good and you could actually feel it working. The pain is so much less that I can walk up and down the stairs again.” Joe Heard, Escondido, CA.
With our "Arthritis Laser Evaluation," we can find the problem and then correct it. Think of how you could feel in just a few short weeks. Laser Therapy can help your life change for the better.
Start your body on the way to pain-free, normal living. Feel your stiff and painful joints rest, relax, and finally have less pain. Feel your knotted muscles become more supple and feel the strength in your muscles increase. As you begin to see motion returning to your joints, you are reducing chances of immobility and disability - a crippling future that you can prevent. You're playing golf again, exercising again, playing with your grandkids again, and even walking with that spring in your step again! Healthy, pain-free living should be yours.

Vista Across and the San Diego region, police agencies respond to calls by caregivers of people with special needs who are missing, and to calls by concerned residents regarding someone they have found who needs assistance, but can’t identify themselves or communicate information about their needs or who provides care for them. When law enforcement responds to these incidents, information is the critical element to provide for the safety of the person involved – information that is timely, accurate, and is accessible across the entire region.

I invite you to a t t e n d Oceanside Theatre Company’s Holiday Season show, Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol, featuring professional actors telling a story about redemption. So begins the real story behind Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, the story of Jacob Marley’s heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to save old Scrooge’s soul – and in the process, save his own. Aided by a Bogle, a malicious little hell-sprite with an agenda of his own, their hilarious journey takes them from the Jaws of Death to the Mouth of Hell … and beyond!

An investigation of the Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) Greek fraternity revealed the drugs on the December 11th search. The search was part of an overall investigation into the fraternity following charges of an alleged sexual assault at the same adress on Benson Place. The two students arrested are members of the fraternity and that into the group is continuing.
Officials say there very well could be additional arrests in the larger investigation.
Police also searched a second home, on Whitesage Road, in a neighborhood off Craven Road

ries should be open to slavery. Northerners demanded complete exclusion. The recently-admitted state of Texas claimed a large part of New Mexico, and wanted the U.S. to assume their "national debt" of the former Republic of Texas. California settlers were petitioning for immediate admission as a free state. There also were slavery disputes in the District of Columbia, about the apprehension of slaves who escaped to the free Northern states, and the territorial status of newly-settled Utah.
President Taylor had stunned his fellow Southerners by urging the immediate admission of California and New Mexico as slavery-free states. Ironically, it was Fillmore, the Northerner, who supported slavery in at least part of the New Mexico territory to avoid an open break with the South. Henry Clay constructed a compromise bill, which included provisions desired by both sides. Fillmore did not comment publicly on the merits of any of the compromise proposals. Taking action on other controversial problems, Fillmore sent a message to Congress recommending Texas's debts be paid provided that state abandoned its claims to the New Mexico territory. Fillmore appointed Brigham Young as the first governor of the Utah Territory in 1850.
American merchants and shipowners wanted Japan "opened up" for trade and be able to put into port during emergencies without being considered as criminals by the Japanese. Fillmore dispatched Commodore Matthew C. Perry to open Japan to relations with the outside world.
Before his death, Fillmore helped to establish the University of Buffalo, as well as a number of other Buffalo civic facilities. He died March 8, 1874.
attention but Harold, bless his soul, is still a sweet, appreciative dog glad for every pet and friendly word. But he is also a LUCKY DOG.
Bruce Krider, one of the two Puppy Coalition Foundation founders had gone to get a specific dog. A deceased veteran’s wife had asked the organization in Oceanside if she could get a dog and train her dog through the same Wounded Warrior program. The Marine, an infantry staff sergeant, had been killed in action in Afghanistan five months earlier. His wife was still living in Twenty-nine Palms. Bruce went to San Bernardino City Shelter to rescue the dog last fall. Everything should have gone smoothly but Murphy’s Law was invoked. There had been a mix up in dog ID numbers and instead of getting the intended dog, he got Harold. He looked again at the picture of the dog that was to be rescued and the dog in the back of the car, it didn’t look exactly the same. He called another rescuer who he could trust to provide clarification. Then the news. HE GOT THE WRONG DOG!
Bruce and Harold had already traveled about 20 miles to the south of San Bernardino on the way home but there was only one thing to do. Go back and get the right dog.
Bruce and Harold had developed a rapport while trying to coax Harold into the car so they could leave the shelter. Harold had this reluctance to get into unfamiliar vehicles. Bruce had to employ every trick he knew. If anyone were watching, they would have been amused at the conversation. Images of trying to pull a mule down a dirt road come to mind ---- but that tactic wouldn’t work. The power of persuasion had to be the method and finally, it worked. Harold’s reluctance gave way to a new friendship. Probably the first friend he had had in quite some time. So, what was to happen now with Harold? Harold had made his exit from a high-kill shelter by a fluke and now to be turned back in wasn’t something Bruce had it in his heart to do. He just couldn’t.
Harold was an abused and neglected dog. There are bodily indications of that. His owners had provided him no care or
So quite by the most fortunateof mistakes, Harold was spared that day and the three

Given the above beliefs, we began a movement entitled “Kids Unlimited” earlier this fall. We decided to offer tracks such as dance, sign language, guitar, woodworking, art, etc. What we discovered is that as we provided such opportunities, young parents would come!

An Amazing Thing Happened the Last Few Months
In the last few months at our church (Mission 316), we witnessed something amazing. The influx of many, many children. For the first many months of our existence we had not seen many children in our midst. That changed.
We decided to be intentional about meeting the needs of parents with children. It was clear to us that 1) Parents want the best for their children. 2) Parents desire to provide opportunities for their children to participate in and experience activities outside of what the schools can offer. 3) They would respond when such
We eventually had to compile a waiting list for parents wanting to enroll their children in Kids Unlimited. Recently, the kids collectively put on a performance entitled “The Grand Finale” to demonstrate the skills and talents they had developed and it was a wonderful experience to watch them sing and dance and share. Their joy was amazing. We knew then and there we can’t stop providing opportunities for kids to unleash their passion and creativity, develop life skills, learn biblical character and prepare to literally change their world.
On January 11th, we will begin a new quarter of classes for children ages kindergarten through 5th grade, including Acting 101, Dance, Drawing Whimiscal Faces, Sign Language, Cooking, and more. Anyone interested in enrolling their child should visit kidsunlimitedcalifornia.com or contact Kids Unlimted (and Martha Gracio – our director) at 760.593.4558. Your kids will thank you!

of them drove back to San Marcos that afternoon. Harold was abused and is fearful of men carrying things in their hands. That gives us a clue to his past. We can only speculate what may have been done to him. He came in as a stray so little is known about him. No one ever showed up to claim him. Harold is a mix of possibly a lab and shepherd and possibly something else. Whatever breed mix he is “technically,” we can only tell you in “practical” terms he is a very sweet dog. He especially likes women so a single woman household with no other animals or men would be his happiest place. (Not to be exclusionary, he would make a wonderful companion to a man but if there is a female human nearby he will gravitate to her and be protective of her. Chivalry is not dead with Harold.) Our best guess is that he is around 4 or 5 years old at most and is probably 75 pounds. He is neutered and healthy. In terms of interactions, with others, he generally does well with people if there is not a female around when he feels he must be Sir Galahad. Quite the
lady’s man (dog). Harold is probably normal in terms of interaction with other dogs. If Harold’s choices are a busy, hectic house or a quiet one, Harold would opt for the quiet one – like many of us. A lot of activity would make him nervous.
Here are videos of Harold at our recent visit to the veterinarian. http://youtu.be/JArV093xXrk https://www.youtube.com/watc h?v=HimY7ZgFP_c&feature=y outu.be

After eating have them wash the dishes with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you have no money to hire someone to do this, it's because you want to love them the right way. No matter how rich you are you want them to understand. One day you will have gray hair, like the father of this young man.
The most important thing is that your child learns to appreciate the effort and to experience the difficulties and learn the ability to work with others to get things done.
Inspiration of the Hands
A young man went to seek an important position at a large printing company. He passed the initial interview and was going to meet the director for the final interview. The director saw his resume, it was excellent. And asked, 'Have you received a scholarship for school?'
pay for his study. The bruises on the hands were the price that he paied for his education, his school activities and his future.
“It was your father who paid for your studies?”
The next morning, the young man went to the office of the director.
The boy replied, "No.” “Yes.” he replied.
“Where does your father work?” ' “My father is a Blacksmith.”
The Director asked the young man to show him his hands. The young man showed a pair of hands soft and perfect. “Have you ever helped your parents at their job?”
“Never, my parents always wanted me to study and read more books. Besides, he can do the job better than me.” The director said: “I have a request: When you go home today, go and wash the hands of your father and then come see me tomorrow morning.” The young felt his chance to get the job was high.
When he returned to his house he asked his father if he would allow him to wash his hands. His father felt strange, happy, but with mixed feelings and showed his hands to his son. The young man washed his hands, little by little. It was the first time that he noticed his father's hands were wrinkled and they had so many scars. Some bruises were so painful that his skin shuddered when he touched them. This was the first time that the young man recognized what it meant for this pair of hands to work every day to be able to
After cleaning his father's hands the young man stood in silence and began to tidy and clean up the workshop. That night, father and son talked for a long time.
The Director noticed the tears in the eyes of the young when he asked him: “Can you tell me what you did and what you learned yesterday at your house?” The boy replied: “I washed my father's hands and when I finished I stayed and cleaned his workshop. Now I know what it is to appreciate and recognize that without my parents I would not be who I am today. By helping my father I now realize how difficult and hard it is to do something on my own. I have come to appreciate the importance and the value in helping the family.”
The director said, "This is what I look for in my people. I want to hire someone who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the hardship of others to do things, and a person who does not put money as his only goal in life." “You are hired.”
A child that has been coddled, protected and usually given what he wants, develops a mentality of "I have the right,” and will always put himself first, ignoring the efforts of their parents. If we are this type of protective parent are we really showing love or are we destroying our children?
You can give your child a big house, good food, computer classes, watch on a big screen TV, but when you're washing the floor or painting a wall

near the San Marcos campus.
While the fraternity hasn’t been recognized by Cal State San Marcos since 2005, it stillhad the backing of the international Tau Kappa Epsilon organization. However, that group suspended the local chapter in August, pending an investigation into the assault allegations. The TKE’s have been one of the more popular
fraternitys throughout the nation’s college campuses.
Because of the suspension they are required to suspend all fraternal activities. This past Thursday, police booked the two university students into the Vista jail on suspicion of drug-related crimes, including possession of drugs with the intent to sell. Among the drugs found in the home, according to officials: • about a pound of marijuana; • a gram of cocaine;
• 34 individual tabs of LSD; • 7.7 grams of ecstasy;
• illegal prescription drugs; and • human growth hormones, a steroid known as HGH. Police also seized nearly $1,000 in cash, as well as scales and bags, which university officials said indicated an intent to sell the drugs. The Oceanside Police Department is the lead agency investigating the alleged sexual assault from May at the Benson Place home.
