Volume 46 - No. 52

By Matthew Fabritius

As we approach the end of the holiday season, we not only are entering into the typical uncharted territory that every New Year brings, but are also soon approaching the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, which anniversary we’ll see in 2020.

The Second World War was not simply another war in the history of nation states vying for land and power, it was the bloodiest conflict in the entire history of the human race. Unprecedented destruction claimed the lives of almost one hundred million people, mostly across China, Russia and continental Europe. While World War I was frequently referred to as “The Great War” or the “War to End all Wars,” World War II promptly stole that title away from its predecessor with unbridled territorial expansion and extermination campaigns not seen since Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great conquered the harsh desert steppes of mainland Asia. This conflict has of course become particularly commercialized in the ahistorical cultural vacuum we have inhabited in the United States since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Millennial Americans’ consumerist attitudes combined with digital advancements in technology have allowed for mass commercialization of the horrors of World War II with a giant slew of video games, movies and television shows covering the course of the war. While a scant few of these mass media productions like publisher Activision’s 2008 video game Call of Duty: World at War or the 2007 Austrian film The Counterfeiters are predominantly accurate and follow the general historical outline of the war, most others promote a central lie in regards to American involvement in World War II.

This ‘central lie’ is the idea that United States’ military involvement in World War II was the primary reason for the downfall of the Third Reich and strategic destruction of the German military. This false narrative, which I refer to as the “Normandy Myth,” is supported by an unending litany of productions The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

in the vein of Spielberg’s landmark 1998 film Saving Private Ryan and video games titles like Activision’s 2017 Call of Duty: WW2.

These American entertainment titles promote the tired canard that the June 1944 American DDay invasion off of the French Atlantic Wall, officially referred to as Operation Overlord, was the knockout blow that destroyed the German Wehrmacht and in effect toppled Hitler’s once dominant European empire. The Normandy Myth has also been

used to tangential effect in the post-war cultural atmosphere of the United States to justify American military involvements in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan by harkening back to the overly-romanticized American liberation of France in the wake of Overlord’s operational success. The reason for this historical misconception is incredibly simple. The Normandy Myth suggests a “clean end” to World War II that is far more romantic than the reality of how the war actually ended. Westerners general-

ly avoid giving credit to the Soviet Union’s military forces for decisively ending the war in Europe against the Nazis as it would feed into a heroic endorsement of not only Joseph Stalin as the genocidal leader of the Soviet Union, but also into the notion of communism as a morally laudable philosophical ideology. While Overlord was clearly an American victory over German forces, it was a marginal part of the war as whole. This may be difficult for many Americans to believe given the event’s signifi-

cant prominence in our popular culture, however, we should not ignore the plain facts right in front of us. The scholastic consensus from historical experts like Earl Ziemke, John Erickson, Alan Clark and Antony Beevor is overwhelmingly clear that the Soviet Red Army primarily defeated the German Wehrmacht.

Researching the facts surrounding World War II from preInternet era research materials like Clark’s 1965 book Barbarossa or Ziemke’s 1989 book Moscow to Stalingrad can be quite tedious given the plethora of data, but is ultimately revealing as to what narratives are true, false and a little bit of both. According to said experts’ statistical estimations, it can be ascertained that roughly 80-85 percent of Nazi Germany’s infantry forces (including both the Wehrmacht and Waffen Schutzstaffel detachments) were killed on the Eastern Front of the European Theater of Conflict. In essence, this information proves that the Third Reich’s greatest adversary was undoubtedly the Soviet Red Army. At its greatest extent, the Western Allied coalition of the

Twas the night before Christmas at Rock Away Rest, and all of us seniors were looking our best. Our glasses, how sparkly, our wrinkles, how merry; Our punchbowl held prune juice plus three drops of sherry.

A bed sock was taped to each walker, in hope That Santa would bring us soft candy and soap. We surely were lucky to be there with friends, Secure in this residence and in our Depends.

The bedpans, so shiny, all stood in a row

United Kingdom, United States and partisan movements in Nazi-occupied Europe accounted for a mere 15-20 percent of German infantry casualties. While the names of RussoGermanic battles like Stalingrad, Leningrad, Kursk and Seelow Heights are not as well known by the American public as say Normandy or Iwo Jima, they were undoubtedly the most important battles of the Second World War; as they resulted in the highest casualties for German military personnel.

By the end of February 1943, two years after Hitler’s initial invasion of the Soviet Union in June of 1941, German forces in Russia were in full retreat back to Berlin with the Soviet Red Army in hot pursuit after the German 6th Army’s shocking defeat at the Battle of Stalingrad. Hitler’s top veteran general and commander of the 6th Army, Friedrich Paulus, had surrendered to the Soviet Red Army after a year of failing to take Stalin’s namesake city on the Volga River. He was ultimately saved from the gallows via treasonous collaboration with the Soviet NKVD Intelligence Service, betraying German troop locations and military movements along with other valuable logistical information. However, Paulus and his 6th Reflecting our candle's magnificent glow. Our supper so festive (the joy wouldn't stop) Was creamy warm oatmeal with sprinkles on top. Our salad was Jell-O, so jiggly and great, Then puree of fruitcake was spooned on each plate. The social director then had us play games, Like "Where Are You Living?" and "What Are Your Names?"

Army were certainly not alone in their trying efforts to conquer a legacy Soviet capital. While the 6th Army had been sent on Hitler’s personal orders in August of 1942 to capture Stalin’s namesake city for the officially stated purpose of capturing the oil fields beyond the River Volga at Baku, and moreover as a symbolic gesture to prove Nazism supreme over Stalinism; German Army Group North had been slogging it out in the frozen trenches of Northern Russia for nearly a year trying to conquer Vladimir Lenin’s namesake city of Leningrad (today St. Petersburg). The memoirs of Army Group North veterans like William Lubbeck’s At the Gates of Leningrad and Werner Haupt’s Die 900 Tage Schlacht (The 900 Day Battle) demonstrate the difficulty of conquering a Soviet capital faced by German troops. Unlike their European counterparts in Czechoslovakia, Poland, Greece, Yugoslavia and Ukraine who fell to the Blitzkrieg with ease, the defiant Asiatic nature of the Russian beast proved to be another breed of animal entirely for the Nazi lion tamers to subdue. For nearly two and a half years, the 725,000 man strong Nazi Army Group North shelled Leningrad non-stop with artillery fire, mortars and air-

German Army Group North’s failure to capture the city of Leningrad from September of 1941 to January of 1944 in combination with the fatal blow at Stalingrad in February of 1943 spelled the end for the Wehrmacht’s attempts to conquer Russia. A final battle at Kursk in the summer of 1943, which turned out to be the largest tank battle in history, was the final nail in the coffin for Hitler’s armies who were soon routed at the heavily fortified Seelow Heights defensive position in Eastern Germany, culminating in a dramatic albeit futile last stand at Berlin’s Reichstag in April of 1945. During the Soviets final push west to capture Hitler, they encountered a vast sea of land mines and artillery positions at Seelow Heights intended to slow down the Red Army’s advance onto Berlin.

When it is proven true, what can you say? Now, as if everything else wasn't bad enough, we find out that beer isn't good for us? Beer contains female hormones!

Yes, that's right, FEMALE hormones! Last month, Montreal University scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. The theory is that Beer contains female hormones (hops contain Phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women.

this logistical roadblock was simple. Send thousands of human sappers (political dissidents branded as “enemies of the people”) out to detonate the land mines by running across the mine fields so that the Soviet tanks could advance westward and eliminate the artillery positions with their cannons. If you refuse to run out, we shoot you for cowardice. It was a fairly simple logistical setup with all things considered.

This should not be surprising though as it was typical in Soviet units for massive waves of Red Army soldiers numbering in the thousands, often unarmed, to charge fully-armed, German defensive lines. Retreating Red Army soldiers were shot as standard practice for “desertion” by their own officers who were stationed behind the infantry charge with machine guns. This is often thought to be the origin of the mythological phrase uttered by Stalin saying that in the Red Army, “It takes more courage to retreat than advance.”

Germany. As described by Pulitzer Prize-winning American writer John Toland in his 1970 book The Rising Sun, the U.S. battles at Iwo Jima (codenamed Operation Iceberg) and Okinawa (codenamed Operation Detachment) were absolutely crucial in stopping further Japanese expansion into mainland Asia and potential advances into Soviet Siberia. Over 65,000 American soldiers died over the course of four years in the Pacific Theater during the various island-hopping campaigns that took place after the attack on Pearl Harbor in December of 1941.

The Russian victory at Stalingrad which clearly was the central turning point of the war in favor of the Allies is often misattributed to legendary Red Army general Georgy Zhukov’s strategic genius. In reality, the Russian victory at Stalingrad was mostly due to the invaluable information supplied to the Soviet NKVD Intelligence Service by a team of spies sent to Nazi-occupied Brussels to infiltrate the German High Command. This team of deep cover Soviet operatives in Belgium were commonly referred to by German counterespionage officials as “die Rote Kapelle,” or “the Red Orchestra.”

Gilles Perrault tracked down the last of these Soviet espionage operatives, their Gestapo opponents and other tangential associates, eventually detailing their stories in his 1965 book, The Red Orchestra. From Perrault’s groundbreaking research, we know that the Soviets had been entirely caught off guard by the German invasion in the summer of 1941 as Stalin had been expecting an alleged anti-communist coalition of Anglo-French soldiers to invade the USSR. The exact details are incredibly complex, but in layman’s terms, Stalin expected the British to invade Northern Russia from Finland to capture Leningrad and the French to invade Soviet Azerbaijan from their colonial outpost in Syria to capture the oil fields surrounding Baku.

More importantly, the book details specifically how the tide began to turn for the Allies when top secret information on Hitler’s preparations for the Stalingrad offensive leaked out of the German High Command thanks to undercover members of the Red Orchestra. The top spies of the Orchestra were European Jews with fervent communist beliefs and unquestionable loyalty to Joseph Stalin. These hardened Soviet spies typically masqueraded as French Gentile, bon-vivant businessmen collaborators who were assured of Hitler’s victory

over the Allied Powers. It was the perfect cover with which to fleece the Nazi authorities. What Nazi official would ever even begin to suspect a seemingly greedy French businessman awash in alcohol, cigars and women of being a working-class, European Jew working as a communist spy in the employ of Soviet Intelligence?

The Orchestra’s “pianists” (technical jargon to denote spies) set up legitimate commercial businesses around Brussels as a front to blend in with the local environment and indulged in risqué nights out on the town, French prostitutes and all; while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate top German military social circles in order to relay classified information from Brussels to Paris which would then be routed to Moscow via coded radio transmissions for Stalin’s personal review. The elite Soviet espionage group that effectively won the war for the Allies was divided into two general departments. The first section in the Orchestra consisted of the “Jewish Old Guard,” which consisted of operation leader Leopold Trepper (aka “The Big Chief”), Leo Grossvogel and Hillel Katz, all of whom were Jews who held a personal vendetta with Hitler over his

On Monday, December 18, at 6:54 p.m., officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to the 6100 hundred block of Paseo Del Norte after the dispatch center received reports of a vehicle that struck a pedestrian. Arriving police officers found a non-responsive woman on the roadway. The woman sustained very serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle. The Carlsbad Fire Department responded and transported the woman to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead. The driver of the vehicle that hit the pedestrian remained at the scene and was interviewed by traffic officers who responded to conduct a full investigation. The investigation remains ongoing.

A collision on southbound I- near State Route 76 arund 7:20pm Sunday

A 1996 Nissan Sedan, driven by the Escondido man, moved to the right shoulder, where a 2016 Nissan Sentra driven by a 65-year-old San Diego woman struck the older vehicle, causing it to catch fire, according to the CHP.

Officer St. John searched Rabb’s car and found numerous mail packages. The packages, many of which were torn open Amazon boxes, appeared to have been stolen before the intended recipient could pick them up. Approximately 30 packages were recovered. The stolen items included clothing, tools, and electronics. We have identified many of the victims in this case already and are working to reunite them with their stolen property. Victims confirmed that the packages in Rabb’s car were shipped to their residence and stolen after being delivered. Rabb was arrested on his outstanding warrant and charged with P.C. 496(A)Possession of Stolen Property.

I could borrow a neighbor’s drill with an attachment for cutting out holes in doors for the installation of door knobs, expand the size of the hole as necessary, reach my hand through, bend it, and unlock the door; I could take the nuts and bolts off the window air conditioner, pull the air conditioner and then crawl through the window, and, once accessing the office, unlock the door and, not incidentally, locate the keys and wallet. I decided instead to call a locksmith..

One quoted me $185, the second quoted my $29 for a service call. The $100 came later, for a total of $129. A nice young man arrived about 30 minutes later, on Christmas Eve day; he was Jewish, he told me, and I noticed a bit of an accent. “Are you a Sabra?” I asked

“Yes, I am a Sabra (which means an individual born in Israel).” We had a nice but brief chat and in about five minutes he had unlocked the door and opened it. I was saved!

I gave him a credit card and off he went to unlock other doors for other Mr. Bumbles.

The Escondido man driving the older vehicle died, and so did an 80-year-old man and woman from San Diego, who were passengers in the newer Nissan.

A third vehicle, driven by a 38-year-old man from Huntington Park, later sideswiped one of the wrecked vehicles, but nobody was hurt. Lanes of southbound I-5 were closed for about two hours while officers investigated. The cause of the collisions, and whether drugs or alcohol were factors, had not been determined as of Tuesday morning. CHP Officers continued to investigate. that could have used that $129.

I asked Dear Wifey if she’d scour the house and see if she could find my grey walking shorts that had my keys and my wallet. She looked and looked with little success.

Finally, I found my sandals, went to retrieve another pair of walking shorts; I knew where a backup key to the car was located in my now-open office. As I began to leave the bedroom I looked down on the floor and there, just barely visible, under a corner of the bed, was a grey pair of walking shorts.

anti-Semitic sentiments. While Grossvogel was a wealthy French Jew who had lost much of his lifestyle due to Hitler’s laws pertaining to the possession of property in Vichy France, Trepper and Katz came from working-class Polish families and had converted to Bolshevism in the wake of the Russian Revolution. They met in Palestine while organizing a Judeo-Communist coup against the ruling British authorities and worked a series of menial jobs in France before being officially recruited by the Soviet NKVD in the early 1930’s. Katz and Grossvogel were Trepper’s most trusted partners and had sworn allegiance to die for him at a moment’s notice, even if it meant turning themselves into the Gestapo for the good of the cause. The second department was the “Russian Young Guard,” which consisted of Russian spy Anatoli Gurevich (aka “Kent” or “Vincent Sierra”) who masqueraded as a businessman from far-flung Uruguay, along with amateur Russian operative Mikhail Makarov (aka “Carlos Alamo”) who had fought in the Spanish Civil War against Francisco Franco with Sovietbacked forces. Trepper in particular was the

perfect Soviet agent to send against the Nazis as he was not only a fanatical Jewish Stalinist, but was also fluent in Polish, Russian, French, German, Hebrew and Yiddish. This allowed him to change cover personas instantaneously and code complex messages in a mixture of three or more said languages that only Moscow’s decryption experts could hope to decipher. Trepper was also a natural-born leader as he had organized grassroots communist rebellions in both his native Poland and adopted Palestine before immigrating to Paris in the late 1920’s. When he reached Paris, he trained emphatically as a protégé under the elusive Soviet spy Isaiah Bir, known romantically to French police as “Fantomas.” Trepper gained access to the Soviet spy network due to his prior political agitation in addition to his childhood friendship with the Polish-Jew Alter Stroem, who served as Bir’s right-hand man and deputy. After the French police under the command of Superintendent Charles Faux-Pax-Bidet (no pun intended) finally captured Bir in 1932, the entire Fantomas network (formally referred to as Rabcor) whose purpose was to spy on French industrial production, collapsed. Trepper was called back to Moscow shortly afterward by Soviet authorities to undergo formal training with

Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine. There’s stiffness, pain and often times a deformed posture. Many scoliosis patients have been told they only have three choices – to do nothing, bracing or surgery. Postural Biophysics Can Help My name is Dr. Hoon Lim, D.C. at Back & Neck Pain Relief Center. Over the past thirty years, I’ve helped thousands of scoliosis patients feel better, get rid of their back pain and return to an active lifestyle. Postural Biophysics has a long record of successfully helping people with scoliosis. A study published in a scientific journal (JMPT 2001) showed an actual decrease in the scoliosis curvature of patients. The head of the study, Dr. Charles Lantz, D.C., Ph.D. stated… “Chiropractic appears to offer a distinct advantage in the management and monitoring of early stage scoliosis.” The most useful part of this study was that the sooner a child or an adult underwent treatment, the more correction of the curvature would take place. So if you suffer from scoliosis, back pain or neck pain,

the Red Army Academy to become a full-fledged NKVD espionage operative. After six years of introductory spy work in Moscow and Paris, he was finally sent to Brussels in 1938 to establish an advanced spy network against the Third Reich. This inadvertently allowed Trepper to escape Stalin’s Great Purge which claimed the lives of over 40,000 Red Army personnel, including two of his Academy mentors.

Abwehr activity. His actual mission which preoccupied most of his time was to hunt down The Big Chief and his fellow Soviet pianists at all costs, due to their deep penetration into highranking, Nazi military circles like the German General Staff which contained all of Hitler’s top Wehrmacht generals.

The Orchestra network managed to evade capture from 1938-1941 due to their expert leadership from Trepper, but were eventually betrayed by one of their own; a Jewish maid from Germany named Rita Arnould who served as a mistress and housekeeper for one of the Orchestra’s pianists. Fortner and his own team of ingenious Abwehr officials eventually managed to track down and raid one of the Soviet safe houses in Brussels, using advanced radio wave tracking technology from the Hermann Goering Research Institute. Arnould inadvertently revealed during intense interrogation by Fortner’s team that an extremely rare French book from 1910 with limited publication, The Miracle of Professor Wolmar, was the source key being used by the Soviet spies to encode their messages.

As successful as the Orchestra was in providing the information that would eventually destroy the Third Reich, their glories were to be short-lived. Realizing the severity of Stalin’s espionage activity after tracing Soviet radio transmissions from Europe to Moscow, the Gestapo sent Captain Franz Fortner (a journalistic pseudonym from Perrault for protection against Soviet reprisal), a former WWI veteran of Verdun who had led a Panzer tank division at the siege of Dunkirk, to eliminate the Red Orchestra in Brussels.

Fortner had been stationed with the Gestapo’s Abwehr department (basically Hitler’s version of the CIA) at Ghent, Belgium to stop any “official” spying activity from, say, British parachutists dropping into Holland or Belgium to collude with French Resistance operatives. However, this was simply a formal example of Fortner’s

de Teramond novel in a secondhand bookstore, using the text to reverse engineer and decipher the Soviet codes. Cracking the codes was an operational goldmine, leading them to the location of roughly half of the Red The operatives. Orchestra cunning Jewish Old Guard were enough to slip out of German hands, with Trepper, Grossvogel and Katz surviving the war. Russian Young Guard member Anatoli Gurevich also managed to narrowly escape the Nazi guillotine.

“The Big Chief” was naturally repaid for his patriotic efforts after returning to Moscow at the war’s end in 1945, suffering internment as a Gulag inmate for nearly ten years. After his release from the Gulag system in 1955, Trepper returned to his native Poland and eventually made his way to Israel after anti-Semitism experiencing from the ruling Soviet authorities. He released his own personal memoirs in 1975, entitled The Great Game, detailing the intricate firsthand history of the world’s greatest spy network.

Other members of the Orchestra were not so lucky. The naïve, albeit incredibly brave Mikhail Makarov was captured by the Nazis, tortured and eventually executed without revealing any damning information. The same happened to hardened French Suzanne agent Resistance Spaak along with the fatalistic, maid-turned-Nazi collaborator Rita Arnould. To Fortner’s credit as an honorable German officer, he offered to break Nazi law by smuggling Rita Arnould to Spain on a tangential Abwehr mission of his to the Basque city of San Sebastian. Arnould declined Fortner’s secret offer to free her, since she knew her status as an informant against the USSR meant the Soviet NKVD would hunt her to the ends of the earth even if she escaped the Nazis’ wrath.

Despite these setbacks, the Allied Powers were eventually victorious, giving birth to the modern liberal democracies we inhabit in the West today. By disguising themselves as everything from lecherous, French businessmen to Uruguayan Nazi-sympathizers and even bread roll delivery caterers sharing baguettes with German pilots, bomber Luftwaffe Trepper’s Red Orchestra operatives managed to accumulate a staggering amount of compromising information on the roughly 4 million German soldiers sent to conquer the Soviet Union in the most transformative event of world history.

Throwing Bouquets: About nine months ago, following a breakfast at Charlie’s, in Escondido, I found my car would not start. I walked across the street to Escondido Auto Tech, told them of my problem and wondered if someone could jump start me. They did. Fella by the name of Frank Caratachea was most helpful. Asked him what I owed him. He waved me away and said, “there’s no charge. Have a great day.”

Fast forward to last week. Starter on my car seemed to be hesitant; on one occasion I had to hit the ignition three times before it would start. Decided to take it back to the nice folks at Escondido Auto Tech. Sure enough, they found that my starter needed to be replacedf and I gave them the green light to go ahead.

On that very same day my partner, Evelyn Madison, had a rattle in her late model Hyundai. She had stopped at Hyundai but they were too busy to even take a look at the car. She knew of my pleasant experience at Escondido Auto Tech so took her car there. Same guy, Frank Caratachea, put the car up on a hoist, found a couple of loose nuts, tightened them up, and brought car back down. “How much do I owe you?” asked Evelyn.

Again, he waved her off. “No big deal. Merry Christmas. No charge. Have a great day.” Any idea where we’re taking our cars from now on when we need servicef?

Thes guys, Frank, and the owner, Jim Isch, have been working together for nigh on to 30 years. No wonder they’ve survived so long. Great customer service and top notch mechanical diagnostics and service. Very, very pleased.

Special Committees at Work

The Legislature is half-way through its 2017-2018 session. But work has continued since recess began in September.

I am a member of 11 select committees, and most have continued to meet and hold hearings. Important issues that are sometimes put on the back burner during the regular session can be discussed in detail by select committees during recess.

I am Vice Chair of the Assembly Rules Subcommittee on Harassment, Discrimination and Retaliation Prevention & Response, which recently held a lengthy hearing in Sacramento to gather information about current processes and areas needed for improvement to protect victims and hold violators accountable.

A number of my select committee assignments involve California’s health care programs. The Select Committee on Health Care Delivery Systems and Universal Coverage met twice, discussing various coverage models, cost containment of health care programs and how California and U.S. care measure up internationally. Specific topics included Medi-Cal, employer-based cover-

So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, awakened without pain and, as it was still early enough, decided to go to the party.

Since her husband did not know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him. She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice woman he could, and copping a little touch here and a little kiss there.

His wife sidled up to him and, being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his current partner high and dry and devoted his time to the new babe who had just arrived. She let him go as far as he wished . . . naturally, since he was her husband.

Finally, he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed. So off they went to one of the cars and had a quickie.

Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away, went home, put the costume away, and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make for his behavior. She was sitting up reading when he came in, and she asked what kind of a time he had.

The Select Committee on Infectious Disease in High Risk Disadvantaged Communities also met to discuss viral load suppression, medication adherence and goals for HIV/Aids patients in Riverside/San Bernardino. Select Committees on Regional Transportation Solutions, Waste Reduction and Recycling, and important for our district, the Wine committee, are all working during recess. My six standing committees, which will resume after we reconvene January 3rd, are Governmental Organization, Health, Rules and Ethics.

Earhart and Putnam secured additional funds and prepared for a second attempt. This time flying west to east, the second attempt began with an unpublicized flight from Oakland to Miami, Fla. On this second attempt, Earhart and Noonan departed Miami on June 1, and after numerous stops in South America, Africa, the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, arrived at Lae, New Guinea, on June 29, 1937. At this stage about 22,000 miles of the journey had been completed. The remaining 7,000 miles would be over the Pacific to California.

Historically Speaking

The Mysterious Disappearance of ‘Lady Lindy” Perhaps no other adventurer has captured the imaginations around the world than American aviatrix Amelia Earhart, who was a world-renowned flyer that was lost somewhere in the Central Pacific during an attempt to fly around the world.

Amelia Mary Earhart, born July 24, 1897; disappeared July 2, 1937. She was an aviation pioneer and author. Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, which at that time, was the equivalent of going to the moon. She received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.

Trading on her physical resemblance to famed aviator Charles Lindbergh, whom the press had dubbed "Lucky Lindy", some newspapers and magazines began referring to Earhart as "Lady Lindy.” During the same period, Earhart and publisher George P. Putnam had spent a great deal of time together. Putnam, who was known as GP, was divorced in 1929 and sought out Earhart, proposing to her six times before she finally agreed to marry him. After substantial hesitation on her part, they married on Feb. 7, 1931. In 1937, during an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career and disappearance continues to this day. Dozens of amateur and professional researchers and archeologists have spent years hunting for the answer to her disappearance. Through contacts in the Los Angeles aviation community, Fred Noonan was subsequently chosen as a second navigator. He had vast experience in both marine and flight navigation. On March 17, 1937, Earhart flew the first leg from Oakland, Calif, to Honolulu, Hawaii.

Upon take off at the Navy’s Luke Field for the second leg of her trip from Honolulu to Howland Island, she crashed before liftoff. Some observers, including an Associated Press journalist, said they saw a tire blow. Earhart thought either the Electra's right tire had blown and/or the right landing gear had collapsed. Some sources cited pilot error. With the aircraft severely damaged, the global flight attempt was called off and the aircraft was shipped by sea to the Lockheed Burbank facility for repairs.

Many researchers believe Earhart and Noonan simply ran out of fuel while searching for Howland Island, ditched at sea, and perished. Earhart had radioed the Itasca, a U.S. Coast Guard cutter anchored off Howland Island. She estimated they were 200 miles away from Howland. As Earhart’s plane came closer to Howland, she expected to be in radio contact with the Itasca, which was waiting to refuel Earhart’s plane. With radio contact, she would have been able to use a radio direction finding receiver to head directly for the Itasca and Howland. But, apparently the plane was not receiving any radio signals from the ship. Rear Admiral Richard R. Black, USN, who was in charge of the Howland Island airstrip and was present in the radio room on the Itasca, asserted in 1982 "the Electra went into the sea about 10 am, July 2, 1937, far from Howland.” British aviation historian Roy Nesbit interpreted evidence in contemporary accounts and Putnam's correspondence and concluded Earhart's Electra was not fully fueled at Lae, New Guinea.

Another long-held theory is that Earhart and Noonan were captured by Japanese armed forces, which inhabited many of the South and Central Pacific islands. In 1990, the NBC-TV series Unsolved Mysteries broadcast an interview with a Saipanese woman who claimed to have witnessed Earhart and Noonan's execution by Japanese soldiers. As late as 2017, a somewhat blurry black and white photo emerged and was purported to be a man and woman being loaded onto a Japanese ship in the late 1930s. However, no confirmation has been found.

A recent proponent of the Japanese theory is author Mike Campbell, who cites claims from Marshall Islanders to have witnessed a crash, as well as a U.S. Army Sergeant who found a suspicious gravesite near a former Japanese prison on Saipan, hundreds of miles of north from Earhart’s flight route.

To this day, the 1937 air-sea search Earhart and Noonan was the largest in history.

Earhart's accomplishments in aviation inspired a generation of female aviators, including the more than 1,000 women pilots of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) who ferried military aircraft, towed gliders, flew target practice aircraft, and served as transport pilots during World War II. The home in Atchison, Kan., where she was born is now the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum and is maintained by The Ninety-Nines. The search for the fate of Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan continue to fascinate aviation history buffs.

engages a caring community of volunteers to help transition-age foster youth, ages 1826, achieve self-sufficiency and wellbeing when they leave the foster care system without family support. The core of JITs philosophy is that the most critical gap for youth in foster care has been a lack of connection, so the solution is resources combined with lasting relationships to caring volunteers and peers. Don Wells, Executive Director of JIT, stated, “We are deeply honored that the SDWF felt so strongly about our mission. It’s community partners like this that help us meet the vital needs of the youth we serve.”

The donation was raised at the Foundation’s annual, members-only holiday celebration. The party, held at the UCSD Audrey Geisel University House, was hosted by SDWF member, and wife of UCSD Chancellor Pradeep Khosla. “Each year we select one of our community Partners (grantees) to showcase and support,” said Katie Sawyer, Executive Director of SDWF. “This gathering is a beloved SDWF tradition that provides our members with the opportunity to connect with each other and provide further support for an organization that is near and dear to our hearts.” Sawyer noted that earlier this year SDWF awarded Just in Time with a $25,000 grant.

The troop raised the money by asking for donations and by selling a small bucket which contained a washcloth and three bars of soap and a candle made with goat’s milk. The $800 donated will go to Heifer International, to buy seven goats. Heifer International is an organization the Woman’s Club of Vista has supported for several years. This year at the convention of General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC), the Woman’s Club of Vista President Judy Pantazo was given the Heifer Hope award, recognizing her strong support and promotion of Heifer International. Frances Hale and Jill Kilty Newburn from Heifer International and California Federation of Women’s Clubs (CFWC) International Outreach Chairman Carol Spiker presented the award.

2017 Blur

This entire year was a blur. If I think back, there are significant milestones that seem distant now.

Nationally, we witnessed the effective use of a new form of politics where truth is irrelevant, and incendiary comments are the norm. It becomes harder every year to remain hopeful that qualified people will fill important roles within our democracy. I don’t think it was supposed to be this way. It might be time to

In turn, this family donates its first female goat to another family which repeats the same process again. How can you contribute to this phenomenal idea? A goat costs $120, but a share can be bought for only $10. A water buffalo costs $250, with one share for $25. A heifer costs $500, with one share only $50. A camel is $85 a share.

The Pastor Says . . .

Here’s some good news. According to the Bible, Christmas never ends. The gospel of John says, “The Word became flesh.” God, as Jesus Christ, came down to earth. John goes on to say, “and dwelt among us.”

Pastor Tom Fry, Retired Church of the Nazarene When is Christmas over?

When I was a kid, we got to keep our opened Christmas presents under the tree for a few days. That was cool. Games, books, a new football, didn’t have to be put away until the Christmas tree came down. That was the sign, in our house, that Christmas was over. And the new toys, books, and games had to be put away with the old stuff.

But when is Christmas really over? For some it is back to work on December 26 and it’s over. Back to School Day is the end of the season for students (and teachers). Some say it is over on January 6, the Day of Epiphany, celebrating the visit of the Wise Men and the traditional “Twelfth Night of Christmas.”

Railroaders understand “dwelt.” The time a train is in a station unloading passengers and their baggage off the train and loading new passengers and their baggage onto the train is called “dwell time.” It is the time the train remains in the station. Newer translations say that Jesus “pitched his tent next to ours,” that He “moved into the neighborhood.”

Jesus came to stay. He came to live in the neighborhood. To remain with us.

There’s a hymn we sing at Easter that could really be a Christmas Carol: He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today! He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way. He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart! You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart. Christmas isn’t over. He dwelt among us, he came to stay, and he lives within us.

Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as: NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and House cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do? Signed,

Desperate

The response (that came weeks later out of the blue): Dear Desperate,

First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: I thought you loved me.html and try to download Tears 6.2. Do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta version. Whatever you do, DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Mother-In-Law 1.0 as it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.

In addition, please do not attempt to re-install the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0. In sum-

mary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Cooking 3.0. Good Luck!

A nice story - the elderly are beautiful.

When we get older we think differently, don't we? This letter was sent to the Principal's office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you This story is a credit to all humankind. Forward to anyone you know who might need a lift today. Dear Kean Elementary:

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Sprenger Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio, but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.

The other day her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. Her distress over the broken radio touched me and I knew this was God's way of answering my prayers. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to kiss my butt Thank you for that opportunity. Sincerely,

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

Recycling Christmas Trees

During this time of year, many residents ask how they can dispose of their Christmas tree. The city’s contracted waste-hauler, EDCO, provides for customers to place trees curbside on their regular collection at no extra charge beginning Tuesday, December 26 through the month of January, at no extra charge. Trimmings/stand must be removed. Organic decorations, such as natural garland and wreathes, can also be placed in the residential designated yard waste container. Two central drop-off locations will be available December 26 through January 8: (1) public parking lot between S. Santa Fe Avenue and Mercantile Street

(523 S. Santa Fe Avenue) and (2) the parking lot on the corner of S. Melrose & Shadowridge drives. For more information, residents should contact EDCO at 760.727.1600.

Did you know Vista residents can drop off used motor oil and filters at the HHW facility located at 1145 E. Taylor Street? Antifreeze, auto batteries, paint, pesticides, home-generated sharps, and other HHW can be dropped off. The facility is open to Vista residents; proof of residency is required. No appointment is necessary and there is no direct fee to the resident. The facility is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays (closed on holiday weekends).

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood

A Letter to my Constituents

I have made the difficult decision to resign my position as Mayor of the City of Oceanside, effective January 1, 2018, due to health reasons. The City council will have sixty days to fill my position by appointment or, if necessary, call an election for the voters to select a successor to fill my remaining term.

Why Go to Church?

I want to thank all of my supporters, my friends and most importantly, my family, for all of their love and support through this untimely event in my life. It has

One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, "I'm not going." "Why not?" she asked.

I'll give you two good reasons," he said. "(1), they don't like me, and (2), I don't like them."

His mother replied, "I'll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church: (1) You're 59 years old, and (2) you're the pastor!" The Picnic

A Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the town's annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends, they began their usual banter. "This baked ham is really delicious," the priest teased the rabbi. "You really ought to try it. I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing. You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?"

I will truly miss the daily interaction with both staff and the community. My sincere hope was to continue my current term of office; however, I now need to focus on my health full-time. I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing the many positive changes happening in Oceanside. God Bless and have a safe and joyous holiday season! See you around town! The Usher

An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. "Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely. "The front row, please," she answered.

"You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring." "Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired. "No," he said.

"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly. "Do you know who I am?" he asked. "No," she said.

"Good," he answered.

Miracle on Mulberry Street

It was Christmas Eve 2008 near closing time. I was carrying a PC to the car for a lady when “Cactus Jack Trosper” pulled up his red Ford pickup truck. On each fender there were huge chrome foghorns that tooted out the refrain from “Dixie” as he came to a stop. In the center of the hood was a five-foot spread of “Texas longhorns.” I noticed a Santa suit draped over a huge box in the front seat. “Hey Jack, I see you got yourself a Santa suit. You moonlighting at the mall?” I laughed.

Jack shot a stream of tobacco juice into our planter and unleashed a tor-

Nome can’t stand “Cactus Jack” and had buried her nose in a computer when he came in. Now she looked at me and pointed to her bench. “Mrs. Pintera just brought in her PC and monitor. They had a power surge and everything is fried. Her kids need a computer for schoolwork. Mr. Pintera is out of work and down with the flu, their car broke down and they have no money. She put aside $100 for the kids Christmas presents but she said they really need a computer for school more than they do Christmas presents. She asked me if I thought we could fix this one for $100. I told her we could” Cactus Jack squinted at Mrs. Pintera’s PC. Jack is the owner of The Rainbow Computer Emporium located in the back country south of Temecula. Jack is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg and meaner than cat crap but he does know computers. “You couldn’t make this thing into a computer for $500.” Jack looked at Nome and snickered. “This time you done bit off more’n you can chew, cookie.” Nome ignored Jack. “We could give her one of our refurbished computers and tell her that all we had to do was

put her parts in a used case. We can charge her $10 so she won’t think its charity.” Nome continued, “They live in that old green house on the left side of Mulberry so we could drop it off after we close tonight and save her the bus money.”

“OK,” I said “you call her and tell her we fixed it and we’ll drop it off tonight, I’ll put a “refurb” PC and monitor in the car.”

Jack looked at us and shook his head in disgust. “Where am I, Brother Benno’s? You folks is easier than a two-dollar hooker. If’n I fell for every phony sob story I’d be outa of business in a week. I’m gittin the heck outa here afore I bust out cryin.” Jack headed for the door. Nome yelled after him, “Merry Christmas, Cactus Scrooge.”

Cactus Jack hesitated at the door. “While you saps are playin Mother Theresa I’ll be curled up with a bottle of Jack Daniels in front of my new 27 inch Viewsonic monitor watchin the Dallas Cheerleaders Mud Rasslin special. Ho Ho Ho.”

with two other men just marched in with all this stuff. They set up the tree and brought in all those presents and then they left without saying a word.” I put the computer on the floor. “I’ll get your monitor”

“Oh we don’t need it now,” she said, “They brought us a really nice 27inch Viewsonic monitor.” Mrs. Pintera’s four year old tugged at my pants leg “Santa brought it, we saw him. He had a white beard and everything,” he said seriously. His older brother added, “his beard was white but his mustache was yellow and he wore cowboy boots”

I bent over and asked the little guy, “Did Santa have a sleigh and reindeer?” “No sir, he had a red pick-up truck, but it had antlers.”

We got to the Pintera’s on Mulberry around seven. A radiant, smiling Mrs. Pintera opened the door and invited us in. A beautifully decorated Christmas tree spread its branches over a pile of expensively wrapped gifts. Happy children scampered about the house. It sure looked like Cactus Jack was right, we got conned? Mrs. Pintera saw the look on my face and blushed. “I don’t know how it happened or what’s going on but about an hour ago a Santa Clause

Show and Tell

A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object that represented their religion to share with the class. The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David." The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."

The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Methodist, and this is a casserole." The Best Way To Pray

A priest, a minister and a guru sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby "Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray," the priest said.

"No," said the minister. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven."

"You're both wrong," the guru said. "The most effective prayer position is lying down on the floor."

The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted. "The best prayin' I ever did was when I was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole." FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT
