Volume 43- No. 38

by Mark Carlson

‘Only a very few out of thousands of aviators get this chance,’ were the first words from the smiling old man as he settled back on the ground. ‘I feel so blessed to do it again.’ Captain Wallace S. Griffin, USN (Ret.) had a lot to smile about. He’d just been given a ride in a 1943 Boeing N2S-3 Stearman, a virtual twin to the one he’d first soloed in back in November 1942.

CAPT Griffin, or ‘Griff’’ as he prefers to be called, has had a very long and colorful life. Born in Oakland California in 1921 he was fascinated by the Navy. “I joined as an airplane mechanic. I worked on Stearmans at NAS Dallas but The Paper - 760.747.7119

I really wanted to fly,? he said.

“I qualified for the NAVCAD (Naval Aviation Cadet) Program, and was soon in St. Louis learning to fly.” And there Griff got his first ride in a Stearman. “We called them the ‘Yellow Peril,” he said with a grin. “But I loved them. I soloed on November 12, 1942, as one of about twenty other cadets. We took off from those grassy runways like mosquitoes from a pond. It was incredible. To be alone in the plane, no one else at all, to be totally in control of the whole world!” The light in the old aviator’s eyes glinted as he recalled the moment nearly seven decades before. Griff went on to fly the Vought SB2U Vindicator dive

bombers at Jacksonville. “Our planes had come from the Pacific,” he explained. “They had patches over the bullet holes,”

Soon the newly forming VB-19 was flying the Douglas SBD Dauntless in preparation for going overseas to fight Japan. “But when we reached NAS Kaunlui Maui, our C.O., LCDR Richard, said we were going to fly the new Curtiss SB2C Helldivers. He gave us two weeks to learn to fly them,” Griff said. “He warned ‘If any one of you screws this up for us, I’ll personally hang him.’ But we all qualified,” Griff smiled. Air Group 19’s new Helldivers, Avengers and Hellcats soon found them-

selves on USS Lexington (CV16) bound for the Marianas and Leyte Gulf. They participated in bombing raids on Guam and Saipan, softening the Japanese-held islands for invasion.

Then it was on to the Philippines where the young Ensign Griffin had a close brush with death.

He and his rear gunner, Eno Leaf, narrowly escaped death from a hidden Japanese antiaircraft emplacement on the island of Luzon. “We were just coming off the target near Manila and suddenly the whole jungle exploded under us. I saw bullets and shrapnel coming right through the wings. I hunkered down under the armor plate and kept say-

ing ‘Please God don’t let them hit the engine, don’t hit the engine!” The shredded Helldiver barely made it back to the carrier with no hydraulics, brakes or flaps. “My plane captain counted eighty-three holes in the plane. But the real shock was when he looked at my parachute harness.” Griff shook his head. “The squadron Intelligence Officer took me up to see Admiral Marc Mitscher,” Griff said. “When he saw the harness. Mitscher asked, "What is this?’” “That’s where a bullet went across Mr. Griffin’s back, Admiral.” was the laconic reply. The twin shoulder strap padding bore a deep lateral tear from a Japanese bullet.

In November the Lex became a target for what may have been one of the first Kamikaze attacks on the U.S. fleet. A pair of Mitsubishi A6M Zeros showed the Americans a preview of what was to come. “On 5 November 1944 we were

Out of the Mouths of Babes

While I sat in the reception area of my doctor's office, a woman rolled an elderly man in a wheelchair into the room. As she went to the receptionist's desk, the man sat there, alone and silent. Just as I was thinking I should make small talk with him, a little boy slipped off his mother's lap and walked over to the wheelchair. Placing his hand on the man's, he said, “I know how you feel. My Mom makes me ride in the stroller too.” ••••• As I was nursing my baby, my cousin's six-year-old daughter, Krissy, came into the room. Never having seen anyone breast feed before, she was intrigued and full of all kinds of questions about what I was doing. After mulling over my answers, she remarked, “My mom has some of those, but I

in our Ready Room. ‘Battle stations! Bogies coming in!’ Some of my squadron mates went up on the aft Navigation Bridge to watch the action,” Griff said with deep emotion. “I was late and only got as far as the port Flight Deck catwalk with a ham sandwich in my hand.”

He related the experience. “I saw that second plane coming in, and I mean every single gun in the fleet was hammering away at it. The plane slammed into the superstructure right where my buddies were watching. Our squadron steward had taken his time making that sandwich and that saved my life.” Six of VB-19s pilots were killed when the burning Zero struck the ship.

It’s a fair bet to say Griff has led a charmed life in combat. “I returned to the states in December 1944,” he said. “Married my wife and raised four daughters. I retired from the Navy in 1965 with the rank of Captain.” “When the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum opened in San Diego in 1992 I

don't think she knows how to use them.” ••••• Out bicycling one day with my eight-year-old granddaughter, Carolyn, I got a little wistful. “In ten years,” I said, “you'll want to be with your friends and you won't go walking, biking, and swimming with me like you do now.”

Carolyn shrugged. “In ten years you'll be too old to do all those things anyway.” ••••• Working as a pediatric nurse, I had the difficult assignment of giving immunization shots to children. One day, I entered the examining room to give four-year-old Lizzie her injection. “No, no, no!” she screamed.

“Lizzie,” scolded her mother, "that's not polite behavior.”

With that, the girl yelled even louder, “No, thank you! No, thank you!" ••••• On the way back from a Cub Scout meeting, my grandson innocently said to my son, “Dad, I know babies come frommommie's tummies, but how do they get there in the first place?”

After my son hemmed and hawed awhile, my grandson finally spoke up in disgust, “You don't have to make up something, Dad. It’s okay if you don’t know the answer.”

began volunteering. I enjoyed being next to the restored SBD Dauntless. I get a real kick out of telling kids what it was like during the war.” I first med Griff in the spring of 2010 on board the Midway when researching the techniques of dive bombing.

Griff at 89 still has a sharp memory for details. I found him to be a fascinating wealth of information and stories. We met several times at his home. My assistant and fellow aviation buff, Linda Stull drove me to the interviews and we became close friends with the venerable aviator. I wrote an article about Griff’s wartime experiences for a national magazine.

It was during lunch at a Chula Vista Chinese restaurant when I casually asked Griff, “Out of all the planes you flew what was your favorite?”

Having known Griff’s enthusiasm for the F4U Corsair, which he’d flown in 1945 I was pretty sure of the answer. Yet the old veteran surprised me. ‘The Stearman,” he said firm-

Just before I was deployed to Iraq, I sat my eight-year-old son down and broke the news to him. “I’m going to be away for a long time,” I told him. “I’m going to Iraq.”

“Why?” he asked. “Don't you know there’s a war going on over there?” ••••• Paul Newman founded the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for children stricken with cancer, AIDS, and blood diseases. One afternoon, he and his wife, Joanne Woodward, stopped by to have lunch with the kids. A counselor at a nearby table, suspecting the young patients wouldn’t know Newman was a famous movie star, explained, “That’s the man who made this camp possible. Maybe you’ve seen his picture on his salad dressing bottle?” Blank stares.

“Well, you’ve probably seen his face on his lemonade carton.” An eight-year-old girl perked up. “How long was he missing?” ••••• God’s Problem Now!

His wife's graveside service was just barely finished when there was a massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance. The little, old man looked at the pastor and calmly said, "Well, she’s there."

ly. “That was the most fun to fly. I’ve got almost five thousand hours in all kinds of planes but there’s nothing like the feeling of being in an open cockpit and hearing the wind in the wires. Nothing like it.” I then asked him if he’d flown in one since the war. Griff said he hadn't been in a Stearman since 1942. “I’d love to fly in one again,” He said wistfully. “Just once more.” And thus were planted the seeds for Operation Griffin.

With my contacts in the local military aviation community, I called Col. Bob Simon, the Wing Commander of Air Group One of the Commemorative Air Force. The San Diego Chapter has a hangar out at Gillespie Field in El Cajon. Simon, a former American Airlines pilot owns a beautiful Stearman named after his wife, d’Marie. Painted a stunning Santa Fe red with silver wings, the polished biplane won the prestigious Antique Bronze Lindy Award at Oshkosh in 2005.

Retiring to Florida

A few years ago, my wife and I moved into a retirement development on Florida's southeast coast. We are living in the "Delray/Boca/Boynton Golf, Spa, Bath and Tennis Club on Lake Fake-a-Hachee". There are 3,000 lakes in Florida ; only three are real.

Our biggest retirement concern was time management. What were we going to do all day? Let me assure you, passing the time is not a problem. Our days are eaten up by simple, daily activities. Just getting out of our car takes 15 minutes. Trying to find where we parked takes 20 minutes. It takes a half-hour in the checkout line in Wal-Mart, and 1 hour to return the item the next day.

Let me take you through a typical day: We get up at 5:00 am, have a quick breakfast and join the early morning Walk-andFart Club. There are about 30 of us, and rain or shine, we walk around the streets, all talking at once. Every development has some late risers who stay in bed until 6:00 am. After a nimble walk, avoiding irate drivers out to make us road kill, we go back home, shower and change for the next activity.

After telling him about Griff‘s Navy career, I asked about a ride. Simon, ever the conservative pilot said he had an idea and would get back to me. A few days later Simon called me with good news. He said he had a friend named Dave Derby who also owned a Stearman. This one was painted in the yellow 1942 Navy training scheme. “I talked to him and he said he’d be glad to take the Captain up for a ride. No charge.” That was almost too good to be true. I was very moved by the offer but knew enough not to protest the generosity. “Okay, I said to Simon. “We’ll set up a date and I’ll tell Griff. He’s going to be thrilled.” That proved to be an understatement. When I called him with the news that he’d be getting a ride in a Navy Stearman he almost shouted. “You’re kidding me!” I assured him it was true.

“I can’t believe it,” he said. “I just can’t believe it!”

We settled on a date for the flight at Dave Derby’s hangar. As things turned out it was on Super Bowl Sunday. At first I wasn't sure that would work, thinking of all the testosterone-enhanced men involved. But I needn't have worried. Dave, Bob Simon and friends who knew about Operation Griffin were keen to be a part of it, Super Bowl or not.

Dave Derby, Linda Stull and I got the details arranged. But we had a bit more in mind. I called a local TV station and told them about the event.

When the assignments editor heard about a WWII aviator getting a ride in a 1942 plane he said ‘This is a great story. If I don’t use it. My boss will have my head.” Super Bowl Sunday was a clear warm day, the skies a brilliant cerulean blue. Operation Griffin began. Linda and I, along with Mike Dralle and Vickie Moen, two members of Air Group One who’d arrived in a WWII Willys Jeep for the occasion, met Griff in Mission Valley.

He followed us to Gillespie Field. I rode in the Jeep, a thrill for me.

Arriving at Derby’s hangar we saw the plane for the first time. Griff, who uses a power scooter, set it up and zoomed off. He said “Look at her! It’s just like the one I flew in 1942!” He was in love.

Derby’s Boeing N2S-3 was built at Wichita, Kansas, and delivered to the navy in June 1943. It served as a primary trainer for cadets at NAS Glenview, Illinois. Sold for surplus in 1946, Derby purchased it in 1980. After ten years of restoration, he began flying it in 1990.

“I’m not so much the owner, as the caretaker of the plane,” said Derby, a retired defense industry CEO. “It’s trained thousands of aviators. I am happy to fly special people in it. And I was glad to do this for the Captain.” Griff was nearly speechless with emotion as he drove his scooter around the immaculate yellow biplane. He ran his hands over the smooth painted fabric skin and gleaming engine, remembering when he’d been an aviation mechanic at NAS Dallas maintaining six Stearmans. Derby told Griff about the plane’s history and how he’d restored it. “It’s as close as I could get to what it looked like in 1943,” he said.

Griffin, USN (Ret.) formerly Naval Aviation Cadet Griffin, was again seated in a Navy Stearman for the first time in nearly seventy years. “It feels great! I can’t believe it!”

Derby helped Griff put on his headset. “We’ll have an escort, Captain.”

The ‘escort’ was Bob Simon’s beautiful Stearman carrying Rich Kenney, a skilled camera operator to get some aerial footage of the flight. Kenney, who’d never been in a Stearman before was every bit as excited as Griff, grinning from ear to ear.

When Derby started the 7cylinder 220-hp Continental radial engine, Griff shot both arms up in a gesture of exultation. The throaty rattle of the engine roared as the yellow biplane turned towards the runway. The red Stearman followed. A few minutes later we pointed and cheered as the two old warbirds lifted into the clear afternoon air over El Cajon. It was a truly beautiful sight.

Griff was in the air for over half an hour. When they landed and taxied to the hangar Griff’s aged face wore a broad smile. His new friends helped him out of the plane and into his scooter. “He let me fly it!”

It was a heartwarming scene. Several people, only two of whom had ever met Griff listened intently to his stories and recollections of the war. He was in his element, happy and excited.

Derby smiled. “When we were over the Lakeside Reservoir, I let him have the controls. For a moment I thought my instruments were dead. The needles didn’t quiver at all. The Captain had it under perfect control. I’m always impressed by how well the boys who trained in these planes so long ago still have that skill.” Derby shook his head in amazement. “It was like it had only been yesterday since he’d flown an N2S, not more than sixty years.”

At last CAPT Wallace S.

Soon we were all in Derby’s hangar while Griff showed some photos of his time in the Navy. “Here I am in St. Louis,” he said, pointing at a faded picture of an eager cadet in the cockpit of a Stearman. “Thumbs up, see?”

When all was ready, Griff stepped off his scooter next to the starboard wing. Derby, AG-1 member John Telles, and Gary Gobel, another friend carefully assisted the elderly Griff into the front cockpit.

Griff was equally exuberant. “I felt great! I couldn’t’ believe when he gave me control. I felt so good, feeling that engine pushing the air. It was just like 1942 again.”

The Maher Matter

I read with interest the ACLU forced revelations of Escondido's retirement deal with Jim Maher.

While not possessed of all the facts surrounding Jim Maher's "retirement," I, like many others, have felt that Jim was royally screwed over by our city manager and city council. Certainly I can understand the city's requirement that he agree to not speak ill of his former employer and to keep secret the circumstances leading to his unemployment. However, it appears the city now considers Jim Maher as a quasi indentured servant prohibited from freely moving about, regulating his associations and politics. Are we to believe that our good city leaders possess the right to deny anyone their constitutional rights including that of free speach? What sort of monster have we created?

On the other hand, it is hard for this tax paying citizen to swallow that a retired city employee, not just Jim Maher, but anyone, is entitled to earn a retirement income exceeding that which they were paid when productively employed. That financial travesty is another tribute to the individual and collective "smarts" of our elected represenatives. I repeat, "What sort of Monster have we created"? Thanks for your dedication to this issue. /s/Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.

Barricaded Subject Leads to Carlsbad SWAT Call Out

On Friday, September 13th at 4:04 P.M., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call from a female claiming an acquaintance of hers had asked her to call 9-1-1 for her. Police Officers responded to the victim’s residence in the 2800 block of Cazadero Drive in Carlsbad and contacted the victim outside the home. The victim related she had been battered and threatened by her 35 year old boyfriend, Corey Nicholas, who was reportedly still inside the residence.

Officers attempted to contact Nicholas inside the home and by telephone but got no response. Believing Nicholas had barricaded himself inside the house to avoid arrest, the Carlsbad Police Department SWAT team was called to the scene. While preparing to enter the home to arrest Nicholas Carlsbad Police learned he was possibly in the city of National City. The National City Police Department was contacted and asked to attempt to locate Nicholas. About 8:02 P.M. officers from the National City Police Department located Nicholas at a Walmart in National City and took him into custody. Carlsbad officers responded to National City, took custody of Nicholas and booked him into the San Diego County Jail for his threats and

During the incident neighboring residents were evacuated. The victim did not seek medical treatment and no other persons were injured. More Controversy Brews in Escondido: Complaint filed with District Attorney

Former Escondido Chief of Police, Jim Maher, has broken his silence following his “retirement” of several months ago.

Responding to an article in the Union-Tribune, Maher wrote a letter that, point by point, refuted many of the claims and statement made by the city. In his letter he said, “The Mayor disclosed to the media that there was a contract, and discussed it with a columnist. Now, with the release by the city and subsequent newspaper story, i would like to 'set the record straight'.

I have NOT received the total severance payment. 75,000 was withheld by the city until I agreed to not run for elected office in Escondido or to endorse anyone else. I refused to do that.” He goes on: “The comment by Sam Abed is completely false. I never agreed to, or even asked, to 'delay' my raise until the sworn officers

contract was settled. This was a fiction created by the city to discredit my decision in late 2011 and throughout 2012 to refuse a raise. I made it clear to the city manager, Mayor, and some council members, that I would not do so until the employees were given back their step raises and other pay cuts. In fact, the city manager did try to give me a raise in June 2012 after the Police Officers contract was signed. I again refused because I represented all police employees, many of which were the lowest paid employees and were still suffering from all the cuts they had been forced to take in the past 3 years. I was not suspended until 3 months later. The 'explanation' that I 'delayed' my raise until the union contract was signed is an absolute lie.”

Political observers as well as legal analysts seem to think the city officials, specifically Mayor Sam Abed and City Manager Clay Phillips, may have a major legal issue to deal with. Mayor Abed had said earlier in the year that “the pact essentially precludes Maher from running for public office in Escondido because it requires him to stay out of the city’s

Several legal analysts have suggested that if, as is rumored, the city demanded Maher sign the agreement not to run in order to collect the second $75,000 due him, the question of extortion and/or bribery arise, both of which are felonies.

DMV Office For San Marcos Instead of Escondido

North County will have a new DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) office but it will be located in San Marcos instead of Escondido. The agency had a leased office in Escondido since the 1960’s but felt it necessary to close due to parking problems. They stated at the time they planned on building a larger, more modern office in Escondido. However, officials say they could not find a suitable site that offered enough room to accept the building and still have adequate parking.

DMV then switched its search to San Marcos and found a site that will work; details with the seller are still being negotiated but if successful the agency plans to open in 2015.

Kirkland siphoned $275,000 from a trust fund set up for the victim, taking all but about $10,000, according to the State Bar of California. Authorities said she tried to cover up the theft by lying and creating fake records.

Before we know it, it's time for lunch. We go to Costco to partake of the many tasty samples dispensed by ladies in white hair nets. All free! After a filling lunch, if we don't have any doctor appointments, we might go to the flea market to see if any new white belts have come in or to buy a Rolex watch for $2.00. We're usually back home by 2:00 pm to get ready for dinner. People start lining up for the early bird about 3:00 pm, but we get there by 3:45 because we're late eaters. The dinners are very popular because of the large portions they serve. We can take home enough food for the next day's lunch and dinner, including extra bread, crackers, packets of mustard, relish, ketchup and Splenda, along with mints. At 5:30 pm we're home, ready to watch the 6 o'clock news. By 6:30 pm we're fast asleep.

Political Aphorisms

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office ~Aesop~

If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven. ~Will Rogers~ Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river. ~Nikita Khrushchev~

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it. ~Clarence Darrow~ Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you. ~Author unknown~

Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel. ~John Quinton~

And you sit here reading this crap as if you understand Japanese!

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other. ~Oscar Ameringer~

I knew that anything on SEX would grab you......!

The 413 Project Opens With 'Les Miserables' – The 413 Project, a new local theatre company in Escondido, will present “Les Miserables” starting Friday, October 4 and run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through October 13.

This first musical at the new theatre will be directed for The 413 Project by UCSD Directing student and Valley Center resident Katharine Burlington, and all proceeds will go to San Diego charities. “Les Mis” is arguably one of the most famous musicals of all time and follows the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean during the turbulent student uprisings of 1830 France.

History is a window into our past. It's a subject that bores many people, no matter to what generation they belong. But, over the years I've learned that people who are bored with history are those who had boring history teachers. How in the world will anyone know where they're going if they don't know where we've been? Nearly everything in history often is repeated. The trick is to recognize it and, when possible, do something if change is called for. Oil is a good example of how one singular subject can cause so much upheaval and war. Oil -- it's a subject of controversy in today's world. It's the oldest of reasons for war: those who don't have it, want it, and will do anything to get it from those who have it. In the late 1930s, Japan began invading its neighbors in

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Town Hall Meeting

Town Hall meetings are a good way to give residents an opportunity to express their opinions and discuss their concerns in a less formal environment than regular council meetings. In fulfillment of one of my campaign promises, I have held five Town Hall meetings since 2011. My next town hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 9, 2013, at 4:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 201 N. Broadway. The meeting format will be an open question and answer period on any topic relating to local gov-

ernment. This is your opportunity to share your views on the issues facing our City Council and to discuss any subject that matters to you or your business. We will follow up with the appropriate City department to resolve any issues. The meeting will also be videotaped and rebroadcast the following Sunday and Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. on Cox. Ch.19 and AT&T U-Verse Ch. 99. I encourage you to attend and participate in the discussion, or even just say hello and introduce yourself. Working together we can make Escondido a better city.

How to buy a new PC – Part 2

This is part two in a series on auditing your computing needs and optimizing the selection process for a new PC. Today we discuss the available operating systems and begin a discussion on CPU speed.

At the “big box” stores (Fry’s, Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Costco, Wal-Mart etc) you will find only PCs with W8 (Windows 8). Many business and home users don’t like W8. The W8 user interface is radically different than the familiar desktop and user interface we’ve used since Windows 3.0, over twenty years ago. The W8 user interface is designed for touch screen devices like tablets and smart phones but awkward to use with a mouse and keyboard.

AB 227 gives businesses a right to fix compliance errors with Proposition 65, a requirement that businesses post signs to warn the public or employees of possible exposure to a specific list of chemicals. AB 227 will let employers pay a small fine and remedy an unintentional violation of Proposition 65 to avoid legal repercussions. Some lawyers ruthlessly seek opportunities to sue

W8 also lacks the “emulation” feature sometimes called “XP mode” that is available with Windows 7 Pro. Emulation lets the new PC run “legacy” applications that are incompatible with new operating systems. There are a couple of ways to buy a new PC without W8. One way is to order a new PC with Windows 7 through a retail store or directly from the manufacturer. You’ll need to pay for an upgrade to W8 Pro in order to qualify for “Microsoft downgrade rights.” Your new PC will be shipped from the factory with Windows 7 Pro in a matter of weeks. This is how businesses avoid W8. Expect to pay about a $100 premium. The second way to avoid W8 is through an independent PC builder like The Computer Factory. Here you simply order your new PC with Win 7 (Home or Pro) or even Windows XP and pick it up in a day or two, no extra charge.

PCs for, they’ll often say. “We use it for lots of things like surfing the Internet, paying bills, banking, face book, genealogy, Hulu, Net flicks and E-Mail.” To us, that’s just one thing, the Internet. A seven or eight year old PC can do all that stuff just fine. Tablets and smart phones cruise the Internet with far slower CPUs than those in tenyear-old PCs. Add in word processing, photo editing, spread sheets, Quick Books, CD and DVD play and recording and you still haven’t outgrown the old single core CPU.

The point is that if you only use your PC for Internet and relatively low task applications,

there’s no point in wasting money on a PC with a super high end CPU. Computer makers have picked up on the fact and now offer low power, low cost PCs that can handle the Internet and low task applications just fine. The average PC in 2006 had an AMD or Intel CPU that boasted a benchmark speed around 350. While the average new PC today is ten times faster (3500), the range of CPU speeds available in new PCs stretch all the way from 12,000 down to 300 (Passmark benchmarks for CPUs). The fastest CPUs are 40 times faster than the slowest. Where your needs fit into that spectrum is our topic for next time.

The next decision point is CPU speed. Over the years we’ve been conditioned to equate CPU speed with value and performance. The faster the computer, the more it costs and consumers were urged to buy the fastest PC they could afford as a hedge against obsolescence. Today it’s a different story. When we ask home users what they use their

businesses for what is often an honest mistake: unknowingly forgetting to post a sign. The list of chemicals that must receive a Proposition 65 warning is complicated and vague. Many small businesses want to abide by the rules and keep their customers and employees safe. This was the priority of my own family’s business.

I believe AB 227 is a common sense solution that will give businesses time to meet safety requirements while protecting them from predatory lawsuits.

End-of-Session Blues

In 1966 the people of California decided that the state’s part-time Legislature should be transformed into a full-time body. The rationale for this change involved California’s tremendous growth during the 50s and 60s, our increasing economic clout, and the notion that such an economic and social powerhouse should be governed by full-time leaders. Consider the situation this year. 2,255 bills were introduced; 1,429 in the Assembly and 826 in the Senate. The Assembly approved 514 and the Senate approved 755.

Believe it or not, this is actually a significant decrease compared to previous years. These bills will impact the lives of all Californians, yet many have been crammed through at the very end with little regard to transparency or public vetting.

Due to this flood of bills each year, many important issues receive little review or attention . In fact, debate about major issues often seems to wither until a session’s final hours. Significant examples this year include prison overcrowding, which directly impacts public safety, and fixing California’s aging water delivery system, arguably among the most important issues ever debated in Sacramento. Sadly, the Legislature waited until the final, frantic scramble, to begin a serious discussion of these issues. If we’re going to wait until the last few weeks to decide matters of such great importance, perhaps we need to reconsider our full-time Legislature. Well over 40 states have part-time Legislatures; most are doing fine and many are running rings around California.

search of natural resources that the rocky, volcanic island nation doesn't possess. There was a vital supply of oil coming from the United States, but when President Franklin Roosevelt realized the Japanese were spreading their tentacles of war throughout the western Pacific, China, French Indo-China, (now Vietnam), Dutch Indonesia, and dozens of South Pacific islands. He cut off the oil, which ultimately resulted in Japan attacking the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on Dec. 7, 1941. On the other side of the world, World War II had already started. On Sept. 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland. Led by Adolf Hitler, Germany con-

quered most of western Europe. The Baltic nations of Romania and Bulgaria willingly joined Hitler, who coveted their manpower, but more importantly the oil fields of Polesti, Romania. Germany, like Japan, had no oil fields of their own.

As simplistic as it sounds, many of the reasons why World War II began could be reduced down to the need for oil. It's a discussion that has been debated for the past half century. And, it's a subject to be re-visited another time.

Historic Memory -- In September 1940, the British were fighting for survival against the bombs of Hitler's Luftwaffe in what became known as "The Battle of Britain." Japan joined Germany and Italy to form the Axis Powers, the goal of which was world domination. Both of these subjects are for later columns.

The Pastor Says . . .

more important things to be concerned about than fishing, the bigger question is: “What, if any involvement, does God have in any aspect of life? When does He get involved?”

Pastor Richard Huls (Retired)

Recently, I was privileged to go fishing in Alaska. For many fishermen, the dream is to fish in that state to catch giant halibut, trophy king salmon, and a wide variety of other fish. While fishing is the serious part, there is so much more in scenery and wildlife. There is also the spiritual question, which both challenges and entertains the fisherman.

That question is, “What role does God play in the actual catching of the fish?” Does God have anything to do with who catches fish and how many? While many would suggest God is too big and has many

People often ask such questions about many facets of life – in times of sickness, financial problems, finding a parking space, selling or purchasing a house, getting a job, selecting a spouse, or taking a trip. We, in the world of faith, try to get God involved in many of these areas. We justify it, because we say it is serious, and God is really concerned about serious matters. But is He really concerned about my catching a fish?

For me, it is more important to be grateful for the challenges and experiences of life, doing my best for the best outcome whatever that might be and enjoying the moment. But I still wonder why I did not catch that big fish and the other guy did. Did he have an “in” with God?
