He was just an average guy, pretty much like the rest of us. He wasn't overpaid by any means, but he liked his job and his friends at work. He'd never be wealthy and he knew it. There were a lot of people with jobs like his, yet he still took pride in his work. He was good at it. There were only two things that made him special. He had a big heart. He was the kind of guy who would see innocent people suffering and not turn away. He couldn't turn away. Even though he might not be able to do anything about it, he'd stare at that suffering until it stared back, until it ached in him, until it burned in him. He cared for his fellow man maybe a bit more than you or I. Especially children. He simply loved kids, all kids.

Oh. And the other thing? He was up to his neck in the first great Allied military confrontation with Stalin and the mighty Soviet Union in postwar Europe. His name is Gail Halvorsen. And if fate has ever placed the right man in the right place at exactly the right moment in history, he was that man.

In June of 1948 Soviet soldiers, acting on orders from Josef Stalin, cut off all rail, truck, automobile, and river traffic through East Germany to the Allied sectors of Berlin. The Soviets also cut off almost all of West Berlin's electricity as well, the generating stations being located in the Red Zone. Stalin's intent was clear. He was going to starve West Berlin into "voluntarily" voting in Communist officials in their free elections that were coming up, who would then hand West Berlin to Stalin on a silver platter. The pesky French, British, and American presence would no longer be anywhere in East Germany, spreading dangerous ideas like democracy, freedom, and a free press. Russian troops were so bold as to actually stop a U.S. Army train enroute through the Red Zone and send it back to West The Paper - 760.747.7119


Germany. The G.I.s on the train didn't have much choice. There were only a handful of them aboard the freight train, and they looked out over the barricades on the tracks into a sea of heavily armed Red Army troops and tanks.

Although the Allies immediately protested, the Soviets pointed out that none of them had ever signed a treaty allowing land or water traffic

through East Germany. And terribly, they were correct. The Allies had been using these routes through the mere "good will" of the Kremlin for three years by then--and the good will ran out with no negotiations and no warning. West Berlin had on hand 36 day's worth of all foodstuffs, and 45 day's worth of coal to produce local energy and heat. And the Allies had no legal ground to

stand on to push their way through via the United Nations. Without thinking, awash with the overwhelming joy at the surrender of the Nazis, the Allies had not prepared for this. But Stalin had.

And he had even more than legal grounds. After the war, the Americans couldn't disband their huge armies, demobilize, and ship themselves home any faster than they did.

All of the Allied nations stood down after the war, thankful that it was over, and glad to be heading home. The millions who had served America and the world were back in the States now, wearing civilian clothes, buying cars, and finding their new wives suddenly pregnant.

Great Britain had been bled white by the war. Some rationing was even still in effect. They were still hauling the debris out of their bombed cities, like France, and their former soldiers were helping to literally rebuild both nations. They were war-weary, in terrible debt, and still stunned by the magnitude of events that had rolled over them in the first half of that decade. Fighting anybody, anywhere, seemed preposterous at the time. But if the Soviet blockade worked--if no one forced their way through--the West Berlin would surely fall. There was no question of it. And the "domino theory" was already well in place by then. Italy could elect a Communist government. Then perhaps Spain. There were plenty of Communist agitators in France already. Suddenly they were beginning

to imagine a black future of the Red Army on the shores of the English Channel, and what that would mean for the rest of Free Europe and the world.

Before even being ordered to, the Allied military leaders began looking at the cold, hard facts. After V-J Day the Allies massively demobilized and scaled back their armies. In 1948 the entire U.S. Army consisted of only around a halfmillion men, and only nine thousand of them were in West Berlin. The British and French each cut back to a tiny force as well to guard their sectors of the city. But West Berlin, deep inside the Russian portion of occupied Germany, was surrounded by one and a half million Soviet combat troops, plus armor, mechanized infantry, artillery, and fighter squadrons. Quickly the Allies realized even if they used all of their soldiers combined that were stationed in West Germany to attempt to fight their way through to the besieged city, it would be no contest. The Russians had massively overwhelming military power. President Truman ordered three B-29 groups to England, hoping to bluff the Russians into thinking they were atomic bombers. In fact, they were merely standard 29s, not the

Thus Ends Today's Lesson on Irony Brilliance

A young Law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty old professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.

Student: "Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?" Professor: "Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn't be a professor, would I?" Student: "OK. So I’d like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my marks as is. If you can't give me the correct answer, however, you'll have to give me an "A". Professor: "Hmmmm, alright. So what's the question?"

Student: "What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal?

specially modified “Silverplate” models capable of carrying ABombs. Besides, in 1948 the entire American nuclear arsenal consisted of only around 50 gravity-dropped atomic bombs roughly of the same class used on Nagasaki. Also, we didn't learn until years later that Soviet intelligence knew the B29s were incapable of delivering nuclear weapons and reported this to Moscow almost as soon as they landed. Stalin laughed at America's nuclear bluff. The blockade remained in place. We can only guess at the reaction of General George S. Patton had he still been alive. One envisions him rounding up every tank he could lay his hands on and having them fully loaded with shells and fuel, idling at the Red Zone border, screaming to be allowed to attack. Alas, Patton was dead then. But others in the U.S. military wanted to blast their way through to West Berlin too, despite the staggering odds. General Curtis LeMay, then the Commander of United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE), quickly drew up a plan to have his new B-29 groups, backed by fighter escort, lay waste to every Red Air Force base in the area while ground troops fought their way through.

The professor wracks his famous brain, but just can't crack the answer. Finally he gives up and changes the student's failing mark into an "A" as agreed, and the student goes away, very pleased.

The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all afternoon, but still can't get the answer. So finally he calls in a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really, really tough question to answer: "What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal? To the professor's surprise (and embarrassment), all the students immediately raise their hands.

"All right," says the professor and asks his favourite student to answer.

"It's quite easy, sir," says the student "You see, you are 75 years old and married to a 30 year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 22 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal. And your wife's lover failed his exam but you've just given him an "A", which is neither legal, nor logical." ••••• Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica?

And everyone knew that an American attack on Soviet forces in East Germany would be pulling the trigger on World War Three.

General Lucius D. Clay, overall commander of all U.S. Forces in the U.S. Occupation Zone of West Germany, vetoed LeMay's plan. It would have been a bloodbath, and we would have been on the losing side of it. But the Americans then discovered something almost forgotten...

While the Soviets could legally halt all ground and water transportation through their sector, the same could not be said for air traffic. On November 30, 1945, the Soviets did agree, in writing, to the establishment of three twenty mile wide air corridors for the Allies, straight to West Berlin. They had signed the treaty, and if they encountered unarmed cargo planes which refused to turn around, they'd either have to back off, shoot the planes down and break their own treaty, or simply hope an airlift of humanitarian cargo would fail miserably. Various efforts had been made by all sides during the war to supply cut-off army divisions by air, and all of them failed. A

Where do they go? Wonder no more!

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life. If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried. The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing: "Freeze a jolly good fellow." "Freeze a jolly good fellow."

division simply required too much food, fuel, ammunition, clothing, replacement parts and the like to do little more than buy them a short period of time. The idea of supplying an entire city was laughable. It simply could not be done. The Americans put out a call for every USAF cargo plane in Europe. They had to do the impossible.

To their surprise, they learned that the Royal Air Force was planning the same thing. Within hours they were working together, and were quickly joined by the French Air Force Within days, the Australians threw their hats—and their cargo planes—into the ring too. The Berlin Airlift was under way. Air traffic controllers worked around the clock to set up flight patterns and schedules. The corridors were going to be filled to capacity by aircraft, and then overfilled and overfilled again. Timing had to be precise and groups of planes were “stacked” at different altitudes both inbound and outbound. It was decided to use the northern and southern air corridors for inbound traffic, and all empty aircraft which had been unloaded in West Berlin would fly outbound in the central corridor. Other staffers began to calculate the very basics needed to be flown in, baking powder, flour, grains and cereals, milk, medicines, coal, canned meats. The list was seemingly endless and the daily tons required were appalling. The flights themselves were no easy matter, either. Many of the airlift cargo planes reported being “buzzed” by Red Air Force fighters, some coming so close many Allied pilots swore they could see the color of the eyes of the Russian pilots. Then there was the European weather, which was often terrible. The cloud decks often went below the mountain tops, sometimes to the tops of buildings, and several times clear to the ground in a thick, impenetrable fog. The order went out that regardless of the weather, all pilots were to observe Instrument Flight Rules only. IFR was the only way to navigate and fly, because a plane could be in bright sunshine one moment and then blinded the next by the ever-churning European weather. When nearing West Berlin, air traffic controllers, watching the never-ending stacks of aircraft approach on radar, would talk each plane out of its stack, assign new altitudes and headings, and if visibility was zero

talk them down to a landing individually. And they had to do it fast.

They were buying West Berlin time, but it wasn't enough. Stocks in the city began to drop alarmingly. But more cargo planes, from all air forces, were streaming into Free Europe every day. The numbers, altitudes, and spacing of the stacks were adjusted, shoved dangerously closer together until the corridors were almost a solid aluminum conveyor belt of aircraft. The time between landings for the heavy, ponderous cargo planes, each with varying flight characteristics, was cut from four minutes to very edgy three minutes. Often they were just 500 feet apart. Planes which had to wave off, missing their first landing attempt, were ordered to fly back to their bases in Free Europe without unloading. There was no “second time around.” The landing patterns were simply too congested for a second shot at it.

Through all of this, the Soviet propaganda machine was in high gear. They beamed radio programs into West Berlin, saying that the airlift was failing, that the city would soon starve. Communist announcers said that with the oncoming winter, people would freeze in the streets and revert to cannibalism. Homes, shops, and schools would become icy tombs. They said the West Berlin children would die first, and to prepare mass graves before the earth became too frozen to dig. However, the Soviets, wishing to avoid such suffering, would gladly give free food to anyone who crossed over into East Berlin and registered their ration cards—and their residence—there, all due to the benign kindness of Comrade Stalin. West Berliners ignored them completely. Instead, they volunteered to be the manpower required to build new runways and unload the planes once they landed. Allied pilots were instructed not to leave their planes while being unloaded. Jeeps, outfitted as mobile canteens, drove out to the aircraft as soon as the engines stopped, handing up sandwiches and hot coffee to the crews. Once the last of the sacks, boxes, and packages were taken off their aircraft, the engines were restarted and they were placed in the endless line of planes taking off. Still, the world wondered. Could the Allies pull off the impossible, or had the Soviets been right all along? Free,

Letters to the Editor Mary’s Story

The Paper:

Never have I read such blasphemous garbage! This Gomez character needs to know that "every knee and head will bow before our Lord Jesus Christ and give a testimony for his life." He has zero knowledge on the true Scriptures of the 1611 King James Version of the Bible. Where he gets the idea that Mary was 13 years old is filth and a lie. Let him identify Mary's age in the KJV and I might follow his socialist atheist jargon. Shame on you for allowing this blasphemy in your paper without outstanding spiritual backing. Mary was just a woman, yes, a WOMAN says the Bible and not girl and to make matters worse he claims she was "somebody above all." But the KJV scripture states that Jesus referred to Mary as just another person and mother who needed salvation. Every English Bible version after the KJV has been altered to suit man's religion. That's right - religion. Religion was created by man for man to put himself on the same level as God and that's wrong.

Faith is from God for man to believe in the need for salvation and repenting of sin. I wouldn't want to be in his shoes when he has to give his testimony before our Lord as all will be required to do if they pass without God's grace. The idea that Mary was a teenager is a lie. Show me in the KJV where she is identified

From this point on, I will not support your rag and will not encourage its reading unless you retract this filth from a socalled American Indian (Gomez is not an Indian surname) and just because he can read and speak German tells me where he lies in his bed. He will meet his legions of admirers in hell, should he not accept Christ and His True Word in the KJV Bible.

I will also declare to all I meet to void your rag, as it is blasphemous and self serving. Do not respond to my e-mail as I will not read more of your garbage. Ask Gomez if he knows that there is a hell and when he dies, does he know where he will spend eternity; heaven or hell. My guess is fire and brimstone. "Except a man be born again, he shall not see the Kingdom of God". "No one goes to the Father but by Me" and then there is John 3:16. You owe all believers an apology for allowing these lies without KJV Scriptural evidence to be printed and for leading the lost even further away from Christ. "The truth shall set you free". "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life..."

Sad. Very sad. Jesus is the reason for the season, may you feel His power of wrath for allowing this dung in your paper.

Shameful. In closing, the letter 'J' was used in the original King James Version in 1611! It was the letter 'H' that was often substituted for the letter 'S' as in Jehus. Look it up and see what a heathen Gomez is as he drags your paper into the toilet. May the Lord forgive you.

Federal Judge Orders Removal of “Improper Government Religious Display” on Mt. Soledad

A federal judge has issued an order from the bench declaring that the government’s display of a 43-foot Latin cross on Mt. Soledad in California violates the Establishment Clause of the Constitution.

The federal display was challenged in a lawsuit by the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America and several local residents, all of whom were represented by the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties.

“We support the government paying tribute to those who served bravely in our country’s armed forces,” said Daniel Mach, director of the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief. “But we should honor all of our heroes under one flag, not just one particular religious symbol.”

The current cross was erected in La Jolla, California, in 1954 and was dedicated at an Easter Sunday ceremony describing the monument as “a gleaming white symbol of Christianity.” In 2006, the federal government, through an act of Congress, obtained the title to the cross and its surrounding property by eminent domain,

and declared the cross to be a national war memorial.

“A national war memorial should stand for all of those who served,” said Norma Chavez-Peterson, executive director of the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties. “It is inappropriate and unconstitutional to declare a deeply religious symbol that excludes those outside of that faith as a monument to all veterans.” Robbery reported at Macys

On Wednesday, December 11th at 9:05 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department got a call about a robbery that just occurred at the Macy’s located at 2557 El Camino Real in Carlsbad. It was reported that a Hispanic male, 20-30 years old, showed a hand gun to an employee and told the employee to put jeans in a bag.

The suspect left on foot into the mall.

At 9:07 a.m., Officers arrived at the mall to search for the suspect.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5’ 11”, 100 lbs., shaved head, 20-30 years old wearing a black baseball cap backwards and a torn, black and white flannel shirt.

San Marcos Traffic Woes

In last week's issue you had a "Letter to the Editor" from a person complaining about foliage blocking a driver's view at the San Marcos Blvd./Hwy 78 offramp. The writer seemed upset that the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce didn't respond and that the city had done nothing after they contacted the Chamber. First of all, I don't have to tell you that the Chamber of Commerce is not a city department.

Beyond that, SM Chamber CEO, Steve Kildoo, is a former chairman of the city's Traffic Safety Commission (following

Readers should be aware that complaints such as this should be directed to City Hall. They also should be aware that, although it's not clear from the writer's description exactly where and what the issue is, there is the possibility that the appropriate jurisdiction to deal with the problem may, in fact, be CalTrans.

City staff will look into the problem if made aware and, if they determine it's a CalTrans issue, will make them aware. However, if it IS an issue for CalTrans, the city has no control over that agency's response. /s/Kirk Effinger San Marcos, CA.

Mayor Maher?

Is this a good time for Jim Maher to run for mayor in Escondido? Sure, Jim is likable and he was a great cop and chief of police. Based upon what is publicly known it certainly appears he got unfairly manipulated into early retirement. And one can’t question that his credentials in law enforcement are impeccable, but is that enough to base a political campaign upon? Should we elect someone to public office just because folks suspect he may have been a victim of a conspiracy?

Then, there’s the suggestion that as a part of Maher’s “retirement” the city has attempted to muzzle Jim and prevent him from seeking public office. If true, whether legal or not, it would appear a distasteful attempt to deny his rights as a citizen and the rest of us should strongly object.

The 7,000-Mile Short-Cut

In 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt led the American movement to build a canal. The first choice was a path across Nicaragua, but volcanic eruptions caused that plan to be discarded in favor of one across Panama, which at that time was a province of Colombia. But, Roosevelt’s overtures for permission to build were rebuffed by the Colombians. Not to be deterred, Roosevelt encouraged a group of politicians in Panama to secede from Colombia and form their own country. To ensure Colombia wouldn’t interfere, Roosevelt stationed a U.S. Navy warship to patrol the

The so-called “Path Between Two Oceans,” more commonly known as the Panama Canal, is the result of a long-held 18th and 19th centuries dream by American leaders to shorten the trip by more than 7,000 miles from the East coast of the United States to its West coast. Travel by ship from East to West and vice versa required sailing around the southern tip of South America. The only alternative was to debark from a ship on the isthmus of Central America and traverse the jungle and board another ship on the opposite coast. The long, arduous and diseaseinfested trip made the “around



Ironically, back in 1878, it was a French company that first attempted cutting a canal through the narrowest part of the Panama isthmus. The private company was led by Ferdinand de Lesseps. Because of under-financing, disease, mudslides, and poor planning, the venture was abandoned. The French effort was disastrous as some 22,000 workers lost their lives in countless construction accidents, as well as battling the disease-ridden jungle and tropical heat.

The Broken Yolk Cafe

Why They Work So Well

We have long been admirers, and patrons of, The Broken Yolk Cafe, both in their San Marcos location as well as in La Costa. One wonders, “What magic formula is there that makes one restuarant so successful?


That’s the secret for success which is practiced so well by all the teams at both Broken Yolk Cafes . . . 101 South Las Posas in San Marcos, and 7670 El Camino Real, in La Costa. This winning formula was developed and administered by Alex and Valentina Kartsub, the owners of these two great restaurants. Let’s meet the managers that make things work so well at Broken Yolk.

To your left, meet Jennifer Austin, manager of the San Marcos Broken Yolk Cafe.

Jennifer Austin, Manager of the San Marcos Broken Yolk Cafe It starts with people.

People who are experienced in the food service industry and care about their profession and the people they serve. Next step, food quality. Only the best food is ordered and prepared to perfection.

Now, you prepare that food and give the patron more than what he paid for. At Broken Yolk Cafes you’ll find generous portions served up, whether it’s breakfast or lunch. You always get your money’s worth, and more, at Broken Yolk Cafes.

Jennifer O’Neal has years of experience in the food industry. She moved to San Diego from near the Phoenix area. She loved the San Diego weather and her husband had a job offer here so it worked out great. She heard there was an opening and met Alex Kartsub. She was impressed with his business philosophy and operation, he was impressed with her experience and thus she agreed to join Broken Yolk Cafe. She supervises 38 staff members in San Marcos, which includes cooks, wait staff and bussers. She maintains the top quality inventory and monitors the cost controls and closing procedures for stuff. Things move along like clockwork with Jennifer at the helm.

Over in La Costa, meet Luis Meza. Luis is an accountant by training originally. He had his schooling in one of Mexico’s most beautiful cities, La Paz. He’s been in the San Diego area for 13 years, with Broken Yolk for about a year and a half. He, too, received training from Alex in the policies and procedures . . . “the Broken Yolk way . . “ and you’ll see the same great food quality, food delivery, prompt service and warm personalities at both locations. Luis supervises 45 people, including wait staff, cooks and bussers. Luis is married, two youngsters, 16 and 14 and is delighted to live and work in the San Diego area.

‘The Candy Bomber’ Cont. from Page 3

Communist, or non-aligned, every nation watched the events in West Berlin and held their breaths. Daily tonnages delivered—and needed—were the headlines in newspapers across the globe. Flying in this maelstrom was Gail Halvorsen, a C-54 pilot for the USAF. He'd been among the first pilots assigned to the Airlift and, with hundreds of other pilots, had made the harrowing round trip flight many times. To keep pilots and aircrews from making deadly mistakes due to sheer exhaustion, a rotation schedule was set up to give each man a couple of days off when possible.

Halvorsen took his short leave and hitched a ride to West Berlin with his hand held movie camera to film the operation from the ground, and especially the children, dressed mostly in rags, who came daily to watch the big planes land one after another. Although they were just kids, they knew their fate depended on those planes. They'd heard the adults talk. And Halvorsen, flying into Templehof airport would glance down at the mass of little bodies pressed against the fence, all looking up in awe and hope. He knew it would soon be winter. The flights would only become more dangerous, the weather worse, and bitterly cold. But he knew the children would still be there.

Halvorsen stopped filming, lowered his camera, and walked along the fence line out to the huge group of children at the approach end of the airport. To his surprise, many of them could speak English to one degree or another. The kids flooded him with questions, which he answered as honestly as he could while maintaining a cheerful demeanor, but up close he could see the hunger and fear in those little eyes. Suddenly, the true meaning of his mission galvanized him. He felt around in his pockets and dug

out his only two sticks of chewing gum, handing them through the fence and telling the boys and girls if they shared them, he would bring more candy back and drop it to them.

Dozens of little hands carefully separated, then separated several more times, the sticks of gum. Halvorsen held back his tears as he watched the desperation of the kids as they divided each stick of gum into an untold number of pieces. Others, not lucky enough to even get a speck of the gum said to him, “But you are coming back? And will bring more? So many planes look alike! How will we know you when you are coming?” Halvorsen thought for a moment, then said, “I'll wiggle my wings.” And with that he bade goodbye to the kids and headed back to the tower, wondering how much candy he could afford to buy at the PX at his home airbase.

The very next day, the crowds of anxious children were back at the fence, carefully watching the endless stream of planes on their final approach to Templehof. As the aircraft roared over, each child sighed as its wings remained level. The American had been so nice, so kind. Surely he wouldn't have lied to them. They watched as many aircraft from a variety of nations flew over, hoping, waiting, wishing.

Then out of the gloomy sky came a huge C-54. They watched as the landing gear began to lower then lock into place. And then a roar of young voices cheered as the massive plane began to wiggle its wings. Seconds before it crossed over the fence line, from the sliding pilot's side window they saw several little bundles tossed out. The bundles fell, separated, and blossomed into little hand-made parachutes, each with a candy

‘The Candy Bomber’ Cont. on Page 9

‘The Candy Bomber’ Cont. from Page 8 bar tied under it.

Delirious with joy, the kids ran in all directions, laughing and squealing, chasing down the precious candy that was floating down over them. The American hadn't lied. He did come back, and he did bring more candy this time. Halverson had been up late the night before, cutting out the parachutes, stringing them up, and attaching candy bars to them which he had purchased with his own money at the PX. He'd kept his word to the children. But the kids all wondered—would he be back? Would he do it again? The day after that, the kids lined the approach side of the fence around Templehof. And again, a big four-engined C-54 wiggled its wings. Kids ran everywhere chasing the little parachutes, yelling and tripping and overjoyed. Halverson couldn't look back or down at that point, as he was on final and these were still dangerous flying conditions. He had to give every ounce of attention to landing his heavily-loaded plane. But he knew there were happy children behind him. And despite the danger and stress of an operation that left utterly no room for mistakes, he was grinning.

Within days, stacks of mail began to arrive at Templehof Base Operations addressed to “Onkel Wackleflugel” (Uncle Wiggly Wings), or “The Chocolate Uncle,” even “The Chocolate Flier.” Some of the letters were from the children themselves, others from grateful parents. Some were written in German, others in broken English. But they all expressed undying gratitude for the little gifts, and many said they would be praying that all of his flights—and his fellow Allies— would be safe.

“Stars and Stripes” caught wind of the story and printed it up in an issue. From there it hit newspapers in Great Britain and across America. Soon the tale of “The Chocolate Bomber” was in the press worldwide. Halvorsen's group commander was not amused. There, during possibly the most critical seconds of his mission, coming in for a landing with a heavy, fully-loaded, lumbering cargo plane full of desperately-needed supplies, one of his pilots was throwing candy bars--of all things--out his window. He was about to order Halvorsen to stop his “chocolate bombing” and pay attention exclusively to his duties, when Major General William H. Tunner, overall Allied commander of the Berlin

Airlift, was told of Halvorsen's activities. And Tunner was delighted by it.

In fact, he was so impressed with this lone pilot's gesture to the children of Berlin he expanded it into “Operation Little Vittles.” On a voluntary basis, he encouraged other crews to do the same. Candy bars all but disappeared in PXs and off-base stores in Europe, so some of the pilots began dropping small boxes of raisins or chewing gun or hard candies. This too made the newspapers.

American children rose to the occasion and began donating candy bars themselves. School groups, the Boy and Girl Scouts, and churches busied themselves making tiny parachutes. Soon the candy makers themselves, represented by the Confectioners Association of America, contacted the Air Force and asked two questions: How much do you need? And where do we send it?

Now the papers around the world took a different stance. The Berlin Airlift was so finely honed, so impeccably operated, that surpluses were growing in West Berlin. It was apparent that the Allies could supply the entire city by air indefinitely. Together, they had done the impossible. Many an editor and columnist took a vicious swipe at the Communists in general for being so inhumane, and at Stalin for being-- well-Stalin that the tide of the world's public opinion changed. The papers all had a good laugh at the Soviet claims of starvation and freezing in West Berlin, when in truth it turned out to be the biggest delivery of free candy to hungry kids in history. The once frightening show of Soviet power had become a public relations debacle, many nations calling in their Russian ambassadors and demanding an end to the blockade.

And as quickly as it started, the Soviets announced the blockade was lifted. This time the Allies made sure they put it in writing, too. It was later estimated, after the airlift was disbanded, that

over 23 tons of chocolates and other candies had been dropped just outside of not only Templehof, but the two other airports in the French and British sectors of West Berlin. No one starved. No one froze. Free Europe and America came to the aid of their former enemies and saved them from being swallowed alive by Communism. And Germany never forgot. Gail Halverson was reassigned to different theaters of operation and left Europe. He served his nation around the world

during the remainder of his military career, even once going back to Germany to become the commanding officer of Templehof Air Base in West Berlin. After some time he was reassigned again elsewhere.

He retired as a Colonel from the Air Force. For most of those who knew him in service, he remained nicknamed “The Candy Bomber,” a tag which always brought on that wide grin of his. But time had passed, other crises came and went, and before long a new generation would practically forget the unsettling days of the Berlin Airlift. But Halverson knew he'd done a good thing, a small gesture to a ragged band of kids, that had caught on for a while and made a little difference in the world.

But for years, what he didn't know was the effect he had on German-American relations. His role as the original candy bomber deeply changed the postwar perception of the United States in both West and East Germany. The memory of their beloved “Candy Bomber” remains crisp and clear to this very day in Germany, and especially in Berlin. After retirement he visited a reunited Berlin and the whole city turned out. Everything simply stopped. He found his money was no good anywhere in the country. Hotels fought over the chance to house him free of charge. Restaurants provided anything he asked for, on the house. Even cab drivers refused to take his money. Instead, at the end of their drive, they would turn around and with tears in their eyes identify themselves

as one of those little children who had gathered around the fence at Templehof and proudly, gratefully shake his hand.

In 1974 he was decorated with the Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, one of that nation's highest honors. During the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics, Germany's Olympic team asked Havlorsen to carry their national placard into RiceEccles Olympic Stadium, which he did proudly. In 2008 he was cheered by thousands on Fifth Avenue in New York's German-American Steuben Parade. Germany named two different schools after him, and the U.S. Air Force named their award for outstanding air transportation support in logistics readiness the Colonel Gail Halvorsen Award. They've also locked in his place in history by naming their next-generation 25,000 pound capacity aircraft loading vehicle after him. He has appeared several times on German television, often with adults who were among the throngs of children at Templehof. These programs were not known for the dry eyes among the guests or the audience.

And still alive and with us, now 93 years old, Gail Halverson still flashes that wide open grin he made famous when the rest of the world was shuddering in fear. His small, one-man effort took hold of entire nations in his day, and now those days have quietly faded away.

Or have they..?

In the summer heat of Iraq and Afghanistan, chocolate bars will melt into liquid in mere seconds. But from those children who love any flying machine, and who would go down to the fences surrounding American air bases to watch the gigantic USAF cargo planes come in, there have been many reports of something popping out of the pilot's window just before they fly over the fence.

The USAF crews now drop teddy bears in little parachutes. Not always, not every mission, but often enough to make the kids show up and delight an unknown little child. Hundreds have gone out the windows in both countries.

Not a bad legacy for just an average guy, is it? So the next time you take stock of yourself and realize you're just an average person, remember—maybe your time to change the world simply hasn't arrived yet.

Merry Christmass.

Last week we discussed the “Post PC Era,” a term coined by Steve Jobs in 2010 to highlight product and technology trends that are performing functions once the exclusive domain of PCs. The idea is that PCs (desktop and notebook) are on the way out. It is true that PC sales, particularly notebooks, have been in decline for the last couple of years while the sale of tablets and smart phones have soared.

December is the month of holiday cheer, joy and generosity. It is the season to spend time with friends and family and reflect on our blessings. It is also time to identify the goals we have met and those we plan to meet in the New Year. This month, I hosted a Holiday Open House at my district office to meet with our community, reflect on the recent legislative session, and discuss ideas for 2014. More than 300 constituents attended and I presented Community Spirit Awards to some of the many people who have contributed to our North San Diego County community. I want to thank not only

A smart phone, in addition to being a voice communications device, can do virtually anything that a notebook or tablet can. Smart phones are taking market share from tablets and notebooks. Smart phone users who dislike the on screen or tiny slide-out keyboards are finding that voice-to-text eliminates the need for keying.

The tablet fills a niche where a large screen and Internet communication are needed but a physical keyboard, voice communication, computing power and an optical drive are not important. The notebook’s niche is where all the features and functions of a desktop PC are needed in addition to mobility. Things like plenty of computing power and memory, a large hard drive for file storage, DVD/CD play and copy, large screen and keyboard, applications like word processing, spreadsheets accounting and photo editing. Notebooks also feature interfaces like USB, speaker and microphone, ESATA, HDMI, and VGA etc. The notebook is a fully functional computer weighing four to six pounds that allows the user the

The desktop’s niche in the home or business is the workstation. Where mobility is not an issue, the desktop has all the functionality of a notebook with some significant advantages and none of the notebook’s downsides. Larger keyboards and screens, more power for the price and permanently attached peripherals (printer, scanner etc) make the desktop more comfortable and less fatiguing. Desktops are also less susceptible to breakage and theft and much cheaper to repair and upgrade. Spill a coffee on your notebook and you’ll spend $300 to $400 for a new motherboard. The coffee spill on the desktop will require a $10 keyboard. Hinges, screen and power connections are all weak

points and expensive repairs on notebook PCs. Businesses that implemented notebook “workstations” have largely gone back to desktops.

Interestingly, the fastest growing presence in the “tablet” market is the Microsoft Surface. With a base price of around $500, it has a Windows operating system, Microsoft applications and a keyboard. With a quad core CPU, 32GB solid state hard drive and 2GB of RAM this hardware looks an awful lot like a PC. True it has a solid-state hard drive instead of an HDD and it loads programs from the Internet instead of a DVD but aren’t those minor distinctions? It appears that Microsoft is going “Back to the Future” by turning tablets back into PCs. Maybe the “Post PC Era” is over!

The Holidays: A Time to Reflect and Give Thanks

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Happy Holidays!

I want to take this opportunity to wish e v e r y Escondido resident a very happy holiday season, and a healthy and prosperous 2014.

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or are of any other faith or tradition, the holidays are a special time of celebration, reflection, and looking forward. During this holiday season, let us all be thankful for this special community in which we live. The progress we have made over the past several years has been excep-

tional and Escondido is once again an exciting place to live, and to plan a future. I have a renewed sense of purpose to do whatever I can to ensure that Escondido continues to be the strong, special and vibrant place that we love. It is my hope that each of you reaffirms your own commitment to continue to foster the great sense of community and cooperation that distinguishes Escondido from many other communities.

It is an honor and privilege for me to serve as your mayor and I look forward to working with our residents and my colleagues on the City Council in the coming year. We have many challenges ahead of us, but I know that our community will continue to grow stronger and enjoy much success in the future.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Vista’s Person of the Year

Do you know someone who has volunteered or provided time toward the civic improvement, beautification or betterment of the City of Vista? The City is seeking nominations for “Person of the Year”, a new program recognizing residents and businesses that have provided outstanding service to the Vista community. Nominations will be accepted through January 6, 2014. We have a number of outstanding people who have improved our community in some way, and this award has been created to acknowledge these indi-

Then without checking the facts, City Council proceeded to vote 50 to approve the ECCHO petition which officially changed the zoning of the Country Club from Urban to Open Space. Schlesinger, the developer, responded that there was no evidence, no document, no covenant, no correspondence supporting ECCHO’s claim and, if such a document existed, from a legal perspective why would ECCHO have to collect signatures?

Have all the city councils during the last 49 years been unaware that they were allowing a “roadside bomb” to exist? It was finally triggered when Schlesinger purchased the property and is presently in the process of exploding. /s/ Ambassador



viduals. Honorees will be recognized during the Chamber of Commerce State of the Community program on January 27.

To make a nomination, download a nomination form from the City’s website at or pick one up at the Vista Civic Center, 200 Civic Center Drive. For more information or if you have questions regarding the program, please contact the City’s Communications Office at 760.639.6131. On another note, I would like to extend a holiday greeting to everyone: Best wishes for a joyous and safe holiday season!

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood A Year With Frog And Toad

If you are looking for a bit of good fun and humor in downtown Oceanside, then you might want to catch one of the upcoming performances of “A Year With Frog And Toad” at the Brooks Theatre this December. Based on the books by Arnold Lobel’s well-loved characters, the audience will hop from page to stage in this Tony-nominated musical (script and lyrics by Willie Reale and music by Robert Reale). This whimsical show, acted and directed by our own homegrown talent, follows two great friends – the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad –

officers from the Escondido Police Department participated in a special enforcement detail funded through the California Office of Traffic Safety. During the day, four Traffic Officers focused on violations that frequently result in traffic accidents, such as speeding, failing to yield the right of way and distracted driving. Officers wrote a total of thirty eight citations.

A 31 year old male driver was stopped at 11 AM for driving while talking on his cell phone. The man had a suspended license for a previous Felony DUI arrest, where he injured another person in a traffic accident. The man had a warrant for his arrest and was also on Felony DUI Probation. He was

With just a few performances left, be sure to get your tickets by either visiting or by calling (760) 433-8900. The wonderful Brooks Theatre is located at 217 North Coast Highway, here in Oceanside, and this bit of holiday magic will definitely put the whole family into a joyous mood!

A drive-by shooting near East Mission Avenue and Mission Grove Place resulted in a 16year-old boy of Escondido being shot in the back Monday night. Police believe it is gang related. A black truck drove up and one male jumped out, shouting a gang slogan, and opened fire, according to police.

A Swedish woman competed with a French woman and an English woman in the Breast Stroke division of an English Channel swim competition. The Frenchwoman came in first, the Englishwoman second. The Swede reached shore completely exhausted. After being revived with blankets and coffee, she remarked, 'I don't vant to complain, but I tink dose otter two girls used der arms.' BAR RIDDLE

A Swede took a trip to Fargo , North Dakota. While in a bar, an Indian on the next stool spoke to him in a friendly manner ... 'Look,' he said, 'let's have a game if you answer it, I'll buy YOU a drink, if you can't, then you buy ME one, Okay?' 'Ya, dat sounds purty good,' said the Swede.

The Indian said, 'My father and my mother had one child. It wasn't my brother. It wasn't my sister. Who was it?'

The Swede scratched his head and finally said, 'I give up. Who vas it?' 'It was ME,' chortled the Indian. So the Swede paid for the drinks.

Back in Sioux Falls the Swede went into a bar and spotted one of his cronies, 'Sven,' he said, 'I got a game. If you can answer a qvestion, I buy you a drink. If you can't, YOU have to buy ME vun. Fair enough?' 'Fair enough,' said Sven.

coastline of Panama.

Before any sort of trouble had time to erupt, the United States received a “sea-to-sea right-of-way” in perpetuity from the new Panamanian Republic. The treaty gave the United States a “zone” of fivemiles on each side of the path for the canal. In 1903, the U.S. construction crews moved in and after 11 years of planning, fighting disease and the development of construction facilities, the canal opened for full operations in 1914. Although no longer in office, Roosevelt was there for the dedication ceremonies.

The cost of building the canal was enormous. Some 5,600 lives were lost, mostly to disease. The cost was staggering and no exact amount has ever been placed. The canal is 48 miles long, 500 feet wide, and 40 feet deep. It was the most ambitious construction project ever undertaken in modern times.

Not without controversy, the U.S. administered the Canal Zone as American territory until it was handed back to Panama in 1999.

Depending upon shipping traffic, it takes approximately 12 to 15 hours to traverse the canal. With no traffic, it’s a nine-hour traverse, but there is a constant stream of ships waiting to go from one ocean to the other.

Going through the canal on a cruise ship is a popular vacation trip. It’s an adventure everyone should do at least once in a lifetime. More colloquialisms

“The Whole Nine Yards,” as in: “Give ‘em the whole nine yards,” or “They took the whole nine yards.” This saying comes from the battlefront, probably World War I. Nine yards is the length of an ammunition belt for a machine gun. Taking the whole nine yards, indeed, would be quite an impact.

The word “Nasty” comes from the late 19th and early 20th century. Thomas Nast was a popular newspaper political cartoonist. His drawings frequently would skewer politicians and business leaders. His work was often referred to as “Nasties.” Over the years, the word has become part of American vocabulary meaning anything distasteful or dirty. Examples: Parents admonishing their children to put something down because “that’s nasty,” or someone talking vulgar as in “he has a nasty mouth.”

The following example is NOT

"Vixen” is the pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s an 11 month old, 5-1/2 pound, spayed, female, Tabby with a short fur coat. . “Petite” and “Light on her paws” best describe Vixen. She can be yours in time to wish you “Happy Mew Year.”

The $100 adoption fee for Vixen includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, spay, and microchip. If you can't adopt now, consider sponsoring a pet until it’s adopted.

a dirty or off-color saying: With all the chilly weather we’ve been having, it’s been “cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.” Now, before you get excited or offended, let me explain. During the days of sailing warships (16th, 17th, and 18th centuries), the cannon balls were held in place alongside the guns for easy access to gun crews as they fired at the enemy. The cannon balls were held in place, sitting on an apparatus made of brass known as a “monkey.” What began as an entirely innocent saying, has morphed down through the years and taken on an off-color or nasty connotation. So, the next time you’re having a trivia discussion on history, try the above three slang examples to show off your knowledge … just a tad.

One of the boy’s friend’s mother drove him to Palomar Medical Center with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. A sheriff’s helicopter helped officers search the area, but no suspects were found. Later, two gunshots were reported near East Mission Avenue near Fig street around 8:55 p.m. A 34-year-old male was found with a gunshot wound to the hip. He was taken to the hospital with injuries not believed to be lifethreatening. Police also believe this shooting was gang related but police do not think the shootings were related.

The seminar helps high school sophomores recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace, and community. The students participated in hands-on leadership activities, met leaders in their state, and explored their personal leadership skills while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in their community. Chloe and Britni brought back a goal of "positiveness" and are creating homemade cards for active duty military as their service project.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 Church San Marcos Peace on Earth

In the Bible, Isaiah 9:6 says “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Luke 2:13-14 says “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Does it seem like there is peace on earth yet? Jesus came to bring peace. Not the type that is

In order to be a person of peace (a peacemaker) during the holidays or in general, a few things are essential. 1) You must first experience peace with God. Peace with God leads to peace with others. Do you have that peace? 2) Seek peace with others. Once you have peace with God, a clear conscience with others is the goal and priority. 3) Family times like the holidays can be used for love, forgiveness and reconciliation. Pray about the person(s) you need to make peace with during this season. Mission 316 exists as a church to help people begin and strengthen their relationship with God and to build relationships with people. Everyone is welcome to check out M316 on Sundays at 9:45 AM at 111 Richmar in San Marcos. For information, call 760.659.0316. Peace to you!

Happy Holidays from San Marcos Dental Center! Dental Insurance Coverage Alert!

Last September in our article "Health Care Reform in California: What it May Mean to You!" we warned our community that the Affordable Care Act (ACA=Obamacare) only offered children's coverage, that adult dental care benefits are "supplemental" and the exchange does not have to offer them. The California Dental Association, along with the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry have all been active in encouraging the Board to include the adult population in their coverage. After all, the purpose of this act was to include all our citizens in provid-

That was then but this is now! Regardless of the difficulties our government is having with signing on applicants at their website, the true nature of this (UN)Affordable Care Act is evident. As we write, millions of insured have already lost their insurance coverage, with millions more to follow when 2014 arrives. In order to secure new coverage these families will have to pay much higher premiums... if they can get coverage at all! In addition Insurance Companies are dropping doctors and dentists from their provider lists. Hospitals are laying off doctors, nurses, x-ray and bio-technicians and engineers in order to shave operating costs. Who or where do you go to when your doctor or dentist is no longer a provider for your coverage...if you still have it?

The (UN)Affordable Care Act forces Americans to buy - not guaranteed healthcare, but promises for healthcare, which strapped insurance companies and the government will not be able to fulfill. Many employers will opt out of providing insur-

New Carlsbad Hospice Home for Terminally Ill

Terminally ill patients in the North County coastal area now have a new final home, the Hospice of the North Coast’s new Pacifica House in Carlsbad. It’s a six bedroom hospice with around the clock care for six terminally ill residents.

A physicians order, a need for a safe environment and appropriate care as required by Medicare hospice care regulations will guide the facility in accepting patients.

A $1 million community development block grant from the city earlier this year allowed the nonprofit to buy the 4,500square-foot property, which was built 10 years ago as a residential care facility for the elderly. The facility is at 4411 Park Drive. For information call (760) 4314100 or

San Diego Police Officer Cited for DUI - Released

Cries of specialized treatment have already begun following ance for their employees and just pay the lesser penalty. Employees must then apply for their own coverage or apply for the government programs, both at very high rates. Delta Dental, one of the largest insurance providers for dental care in California, is already losing providers for their customers, because of reimbursement cuts to begin in 2014!

No one knows the final outcome of this Act, but it does appear that the age of dental insurance coverage as we've known it, is coming to an end. To this date adult dental coverage is still absent from coverage under the ACA and with insurance premiums going through the roof... it could spell the end of dental coverage for many.

the arrest of a San Diego police officer on suspicion of drunken driving. Sources tell The Paper that the officer was a relatively new hire. He was ticketed by the California Highway Patrol and released.

Amanda Estrada, 27, was pulled over about 1:20 a.m. Nov. 3 along Rancho Bernardo Road just east of Interstate 15, according to CHP Officer Jake Sanchez.

A field sobriety test measured her blood alcohol content at below 0.08 percent. State law allows officers to arrest suspects whose blood alcohol content does not meet or exceed the legal limit of 0.08 percent if they are deemed under the influence. Estrada was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. She was not taken to jail upon her arrest.

The CHP publicizes that anyone who drinks and drives is taken to jail.

A CHP sergeant allowed Estrada to be released to a responsible adult on the promise to appear in court at a later date, according to officer Sanchez. This appears to be in contrast to the highly publicized holiday campaign of “If you drink and drive, expect to go to jail.” Our Alert: For those with dental insurance coverage: "USE YOUR REMAINING INSURANCE FOR DENTAL TREATMENTS NOW!"

This is our recommendation: Finish as much dental treatment as possible while you still have the opportunity to do so!

Soon we all may be solely responsible for our dental costs! Contact us at (760) 734-4311. Ask for our $100 Holiday gift card for dental treatment done in 2013!
