A lot of people today may not remember the name Charles Whitman. He was better known as the Texas Tower Sniper. He was a former Marine and sniper who killed 16 people at the University of Texas in 1966. Dr. Stuart Brown was a young psychiatry professor at Baylor University in Texas.
BROWN: I was walking down the Baylor hall, moving to my office as a assistant professor of psychiatry, carrying books, and the dean of Baylor, Stanley Olson, was walking down the hall with a portable radio. And the radio was broadcasting live from Austin - which is some distance from Houston of course and you could hear gunshots.

At that time, Stuart Brown had coincidently been studying the psychology of aggression.
BROWN: So my boss said, well, I want you to try and figure out why this young man - why he perpetrated this horrible crime. And we were going to try and reconstruct the life and times of Charles Whitman, which we did in great detail. Well, you know, there had been a number of factors of course. Whitman's father was an expert in firearms. Whitman was a crack shot, a history of violence and abuse. The father beat the mother virtually mercilessly about once a month. And he was bipolar.
A handsome, re gular guy, Charles Whitma n
And then, he found out something else, something very specific about Charles' childhood.
BROWN: Well, we found out that the neighbors - who I interviewed and who I interviewed again 20 years later - had never seen little Charles Whitman engaged in what would've been considered spontaneous free play. Whenever he was crawling and exploring, the father would punish him. And when he was 4 years old, his father insisted he start playing the piano. And if he didn't practice when he was 4 and 5 years old, the father would beat him. His preschool teacher described him as too good, sitting in the corner and waiting to get a cue from the teacher as to how to behave rather than having the kind of anarchic, full-ofyourself playfulness that's normal childhood play.

After researching Charles Whitman, Stuart thought that maybe missing out on childhood play could leave a mark, and in this case a devastating one. But Charles Whitman was just one research subject.
BROWN: And so I went to one prison, the Huntsville prison in Texas... Here Stuart Brown was able to

- to be linked. And when you listen closely to a developmental trajectory in a person who has a real sense of putting themselves in the shoes of another, you go back into their histories and you hear them say, you know, when I was on a playground I punched a kid once, and he started to cry, and I began to realize that if he did that to me it would hurt, so I didn't do it again. And there is this sort of learned empathy that comes from interaction - direct

interaction - with others. For years after studying those murderers in Huntsville, Stuart continued to research the childhoods of people like them and like Charles Whitman, and in particular how a lack of play could have affected their brains.
BROWN: It's very serious if it's early on in early development. Let's say from 7 or 8 months to 5 years and it's missing, that's really serious. But at any point in a lifetime, whether it's your lifetime now or mine in my early 80s, it is a very necessary part of being human. And so when you are in a state of play, part of your frontal lobe gets unhooked, and a lot more associations that are all over the rest of the brain kind of join in like a symphony. So although this is not quantifiable and good science yet, there is a lot of evidence from the animal world that play lights up the brain like nothing else. In the animal world, if you take rats who have - who are hardwired to play at a certain period of their juvenile years, they squeak, they wrestle, they pin each other - that's part of their play. If you stop that behavior on one group that you're experimenting with and you allow it in another group that you're experimenting with, and then you present those rats with a cat

A man was sitting reading his papers when his wife hit him round the head with a frying pan. 'What was that for?' the man asked.
The wife replied, 'That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it that I found in your pants pocket.' The man then said 'When I was at the races last week, Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on.'
The wife apologized and went on with the housework. Three days later the man is watching TV when his wife bashes him on the head with an even bigger frying pan, knocking him unconscious. Upon re-gaining

Stuart says you see the same sort of results in other mammals - and especially in intelligent ones, including primates and humans. BROWN: What you see from their play clearly is that they explore options that they wouldn't explore otherwise if they hadn't played. So the exploration of the possible I think is one of the cliches about what play does. The capacity for play seems to me to allow us to take in novelty and newness, use it to adapt and become more flexible, and also have a good time in the process. The opposite of play is not work, it's depression. And I think if you think about life without play - no humor, no flirtation, no movies, no games, no fantasy, and, and, and - try and imagine a culture or a life, adult or otherwise, without play. And the thing that's so unique about our species is that we're really designed to play through our whole lifetime. So what I want to encourage you on an individual level to do is to explore backwards as far as you can go to the most clear, joyful, playful image that you have, whether it's with

A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could put one over on them easily. So, the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play a fun game. The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.
The lawyer persists, saying that the game is a lot of fun, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5.00. Then you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500." This catches the senior's attention and, to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game. The lawyer asks the first question, "What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?"
The senior doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

And you'll find you may change jobs, which has happened to a number of people when I've had them do this in order to be more empowered through their play, or you'll be able to enrich your life by prioritizing it and paying attention to it. Dr. Stuart Brown would later found and operate the National Institue for Play in California. He had found a common thread in the life stories of mass murderers: lack of play in childhood.
Since then, he's interviewed thousands of people to catalog their relationships with play, noting a strong correlation between playful activity and success. His book Play describes the impact that play can have on one's life. The Charles Whitman Scenario
After called back to active service because of poor academic performance, Whitman returned to the Marine Corps in 1963. In December 1964, he was discharged. Whitman went back to the University of Texas at Austin in the spring of 1965.
By 1966, he was suffering from severe headaches and consulted a therapist at the university to discuss concerns he had over his
Now, it's the senior's turn. He asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and come down with four?"
The lawyer uses his laptop to search all references he could find on the Net. He sends Emails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up. He wakes the senior and hands him $500. The senior pockets the $500 and goes back to sleep. The lawyer is now going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"
The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep. ••••• Bought the missus a hamster skin coat last week.

mental health. The doctor recommended Whitman attend another session the following week, but he never returned. Suffering from mental illness and acute fits of anger, Whitman killed his mother and wife and on August 1, 1966, went atop a 300-foot tower, targeting people in the vicinity. He would kill 16 and injure many others before he was killed by police, who stormed the tower.
Also in 1966, his mother finally left his father after suffering years of abuse. She got an apartment in Austin, not far from her son. This move would prove fatal for her. Sometime on the evening of July 31, Whitman went to his mother's home and stabbed and shot her. In a note left with her body, Whitman explained that he was "truly sorry that this was the only way I could see to relieve her sufferings but I think it was best." After killing his mother, Whitman went home. Sometime after his wife went to sleep, he stabbed her to death. He typed a note before her death, stating that he was going to kill her. He said that "I love her dearly. . . . I cannot rationally pinpoint any specific reason for doing this."
He thought it might have been his own selfishness or his desire to spare her from facing embar-

So a United Way volunteer paid the lawyer a visit in his lavish office.
The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, "Our research shows that even though your annual income is over two million dollars, you don't give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give something back to your community through the United Way?" The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, "First, did your research also show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness, and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?" Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbles, "Uh... no, I didn't know that." "Second," says the lawyer, "did

rassment over his actions.
On August 1, 1966, Whitman, along with an assortment of weapons and supplies stored in a trunk, entered the University of Texas tower, wearing overalls. He headed up to the observation deck, killing a receptionist and two others along the way. Once he reached the deck, he began shooting at the people below. The rampage lasted less than two hours with most of the deaths and injuries occurring in the first 15 to 20 minutes. Death
A trained sniper, Whitman shot most of his victims near or in the heart. In total, he killed 14 people and wounded 30 more on the campus before being shot and killed by two police officers, with a wide range of civilians assisting authorities during the crisis.
In one of his writings, Whitman stated that he wanted his brain examined after his death to check for signs of physical cause of mental illness. His request was granted in the form of a police autopsy, which showed that he had a brain tumor. But medical experts disagreed over whether it had any effect on Whitman's actions. The day before the shootings, Whitman bought a pair of binoculars and a knife from a hardware store, and Spam from a 7Eleven convenience store. He picked up his wife from her summer job as a telephone operator, before meeting his mother for lunch at the Wyatt Cafeteria, located close to the university.
At approximately 4:00 p.m. on July 31, Charles and Kathy Whitman visited their close friends John and Fran Morgan. They left the Morgans' apartment at 5:50 so that Kathy could get to her 6:00–10:00 p.m. shift. At 6:45, Whitman began typing his suicide note, a portion of which read: I do not quite understand what it is that compels me to type this letter. Perhaps it is to leave some vague reason for the actions I have recently performed. I do not really understand myself these days. I am supposed to be an average reasonable and intelligent young man. However, lately (I cannot recall when it started) I have been a victim of many unusual and irrational thoughts.
Whitman wrote that he requested an autopsy be conducted upon his body, to determine if there was a biological reason for his actions and increasing headaches. He also wrote that he had decided to kill both his mother and wife. Expressing uncertainty about his reasons, he stated he wanted to relieve his wife and mother from the suffering of this world and to save them the embarrassment of his actions. He did not mention planning the attack at the university.
Just after midnight on August 1, Whitman drove to his mother's apartment at 1212 Guadalupe Street. After killing his mother, he placed her body on her bed and covered it with sheets. His method of murder is disputed, but officials believed he rendered her unconscious before stabbing her in the heart. He left a handwritten note beside her body, which read in part: To Whom It May Concern: I have just taken my mother's life. I am very upset over having done it. However, I feel that if there is a heaven she is definitely there now [...] I am truly sorry [...] Let there be no doubt in your mind that I loved this woman with all my heart.
Whitman then returned to his home at 906 Jewell Street, where he killed his wife by stabbing her three times in the heart as she slept. He covered her body with sheets, then resumed the typewritten note he had begun the previous evening. Using a ballpoint pen, he wrote at the side of the page: Friends interrupted. 8-1-66 Mon. 3:00 A.M. BOTH DEAD. Whitman continued the note, finishing it by pen: I imagine it appears that I brutally killed both of my loved ones. I was only trying to do a quick thorough job [...] If my life insurance policy is valid please pay off my debts [...] donate the rest anonymously to a mental health foundation. Maybe research can prevent further tragedies of this type [...] Give our dog to my in-laws. Tell them Kathy loved "Schocie" very much [...] If you can find in yourselves to grant my last wish, cremate me after the autopsy.
He also left instructions in the rented house requesting that two rolls of camera film be developed. Whitman also wrote personal notes to each of his brothers. Whitman last wrote on an envelope labeled, 'Thoughts For the Day,' in which he stored a collection of written admonitions. He added on the outside of the envelope: 8-1-66. I never could quite make it. These thoughts are too much for me.
At 5:45 a.m. on August 1, 1966, Whitman phoned his wife's supervisor at Bell System to explain that Kathy was ill and unable to work that day. He made a similar phone call to his mother's workplace five hours later. Following the sniper trad,iion of "one shot, one kill," Whitman never shot twice anyone who had fallen to the ground. The first shots fired by Whitman from the tower's outer deck came at approximately 11:48 a.m. He first hit Claire Wilson, an 18-year-old anthropology student who was eight months pregnant. Whitman shot Wilson in the abdomen, killing her unborn child. The shot dropped Wilson to the concrete on the mall as her fiancé, 18year-old Thomas Eckman, asked her, "What's wrong?" Whitman
shot and killed Eckman as he tried to help Wilson. He next shot Robert Boyer, a 33-year-old mathematician, who was killed instantly by a single shot to the lower back. After shooting Boyer, Whitman shot a 31-year old student named Devereau Huffman in the right arm; Huffman fell wounded beside a hedge. When Charlotte Darehshori, a young secretary, ran to help Boyer and Huffman, she came under fire. She crouched beneath the concrete base of a flagpole for an hour and a half, shielding herself from Whitman's view. Nearby, Whitman shot David Gunby, a 23-year-old electrical engineering student walking in the courtyard. Whitman fatally shot Thomas Ashton, a 22-year-old, in the chest. Next he shot Adrian and Brenda Littlefield as they walked onto the South Mall. Two young women, Nancy Harvey and Ellen Evganides, were wounded as they walked down the West Mall. Whitman shot Harvey, who was five months pregnant, in the hip, and Evganides in the leg and thigh. Both Harvey and her unborn child survived. Whitman began to fire upon people walking on Guadalupe Street; he shot and wounded 17year-old newspaper delivery boy Alex Hernandez, before fatally wounding 17-year-old Karen Griffith with a shot to the shoulder and lung. The next victim was a 24-year-old senior named Thomas Karr, whom Whitman fatally shot in the back as he walked to his residence after completing an exam. On the third block, Whitman shot and wounded 35-year-old basketball coach Billy Snowden from a distance of over 1,500 feet (460 m). Nearby, he shot 21-year-old Sandra Wilson in the chest.
On the corner of 24th and Guadalupe, Whitman shot and wounded two students, Abdul Khashab and his fiancee Janet Paulos, outside a dress shop. Khashab, a 26-year-old chemistry student from Iraq, was shot in the elbow and Paulos in the chest. The next to be shot was a 21-year-old named Lana Phillips, whom Whitman wounded in the shoulder. Phillips' sister ran from cover to drag Lana to safety.
Three Peace Corps trainees, Tom Herman, Roland Ehlke and David Mattson, were Whitman's next targets. The trio were shot at as they walked toward a luncheon for volunteers. Mattson had part of his wrist blown off. Ehlke subsequently recalled that he heard Mattson

"Third, did your research indicate to you that my sister's husband died in a dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?" The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, says, "I'm so sorry. I had no idea."

On Thursday, March 26, at about 10:10 pm, officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to the area of Via Rancho Pkwy and Camino del Postigo regarding an injury collision involving a solo vehicle. Officers arrived on scene and found a silver Nissan 350Z had struck a concrete retaining wall and flipped onto its roof. Preliminary investigation indicates the driver, 33-year-old Eric Robert Anderson of Escondido, was driving westbound on Via Rancho Pkwy from the area of I-15 at a high rate of speed. It appears Anderson lost control of the vehicle and hit the retaining wall while in a sideways uncontrolled skid, with the impact causing the car to flip onto the roof.
The resulting impact caused Anderson to sustain significant injuries to his head. Anderson was transported to Palomar Hospital by Escondido Fire Medics where he was later pronounced deceased by ER staff. There were no passengers in his car, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor at this time. The traffic investigation is ongoing at this time and is

On Saturday, March 28, at about 6:56 pm, officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to the area of Lincoln Ave. and Fig St. regarding an injury collision involving a solo vehicle. Officers arrived on scene and found a blue Hyundai Accent had struck a light pole at the corner of the intersection. Preliminary investigation indicates the driver, 19 year-old Tiffany Kennedy of Escondido, was driving westbound on Lincoln Ave. at a high rate of speed. It appears Kennedy lost control of the vehicle and hit the light pole.
The resulting impact caused Kennedy to sustain multiple serious injuries. Kennedy was transported to Palomar Hospital by Escondido Fire Medics where she was taken into surgery. There were no passengers in her car. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this crash, however, Kennedy

Another doffing of the old fedorah to good friend, Clarke Dailey. Clarke is a headmaster at the Palomar Valley Christian Academy in Escondido, has been since 2012.
In addition to being an educator, Clarke often puts on fundraising events for various nonprofits in the area. When he does those he asks for volunteers from his students and other teenagers. However, he winds up paying these “volunteers” an hourly wage (which they not only did not ask for nor expect) as well as usually taking them out for hamburgers and a soda afterwards. No wonder the kids and their parents worship the guy. A class act.

“Yeah, maybe. Kinda hard to write a book when you’re six feet under, isn’t it? Which reminds me . . . I recently had a dream where I had died and they were preparing me for burial. They put me in the coffin and I said, “Hey! I don’t want to be on my back; I want to curl up on my side, just he way I sleep now.” Naturally, Evelyn and I cracked up at this observation (as we do with many of Charlie’s stories.) I asked Charlie if it was okay to tell that story in the column and he said, “Yeah, go ahead. The other reason I don’t write a book telling all my memories is people think I’m a nice guy. If they read my book and see all the bad things I did, all the bad thoughts I had, maybe they wouldn’t think I was such a good guy.” (You would, believe me.)
His dream led on to another discussion about dreams and their meaning. In the old country, the people had strong beliefs in dreams, visions, and fortune telling. Less here in America, but some beliefs still persist. And there may be something to them, who knows? I have very vivid, mostly pleasant dreams.

RE: Escondido Club Saga
An important fact missing from this article is that Ken Lounsbery was the Escondido City Attorney during the years that the Country Club, Golf Course, and surrounding homes were developed in an area that at that time and still to this day is zoned R1-7 on the zoning map of Escondido.
The official policy of the city at that time and continues today is that they do not report variances or special use to the county as required by state law. Apparently all of the city council members and city mayors elected during that period

High-speed Rail Troubles Continue
Recent news about California’s high-speed rail project is raising more questions. Construction on the initial 29-mile link between Fresno and Merced, now two years behind schedule, was rescheduled to begin this March, but has now been delayed several more months. These delays have resulted in huge costs for the contractor, who may sue. Voters approved Proposition 1A in 2008, which authorized a $9.95 billion bond to help finance what was described as a $40 billion high-speed rail system, a projection that has now escalated to at least $68 billion and will likely go far higher.
About $3 billion in federal funding is also involved in the project. These funds must be spent by the September 30, 2017, dead-

line. To meet this deadline, the project will be forced to spend around $6 million per day for a full fiscal year beginning in July, a staggering amount that far exceeds spending for any known past project.
Unfortunately, despite growing opposition from legislators and from the public at large, plans to forge ahead with highspeed rail are progressing.
California has many pressing needs, including costly upgrades for its highways, its water infrastructure, a seriously underfunded Medi-Cal reimbursement program, and unfunded mandates in excess of $300 billion. Continuing to fund an expensive rail project with doubtful finances that few would ever use is sheer folly. Since good stewardship of the people’s tax dollars is absolutely essential in a representative republic, this costly boondoggle must be sidetracked, sooner rather than later.

to three separate vendors – a barrel maker (blacksmith), a carpenter who carved the gun stock, and a maker of “flint locks” (the mechanism that includes the firing hammer and the lock that ignites the gun power to fire the weapon). Self-assembly was required. As for Kit and Kaboodle, that source is unknown.

The American and English languages (yes, there is a distinct difference), have used curious sayings that emanated from activities and social experiences. Example: Where someone might say regarding a person receiving a number of items:

To play “Cat and Mouse” with someone comes from early 20th century England when Parliament passed a law called the “Prisoners Discharge For Ill-Health Act.” It promptly became known as the “Cat & Mouse Act.” Hunger strikers would be released from prison because of ill-health, but could be re-arrested when they recovered. Indian Giver: With the history of our nation regarding our illtreatment of Native Americans, this term is selfexplanatory.
The term “Break the Ice,” goes back more than four centuries when, at the beginning of spring, river boaters would break the ice in order to make passage. The more modern usage comes from the 1823 poems of “Don Juan” by Lord Byron, referring to the British

people: “… and your cold people are beyond all price, once you’ve broken their confounded ice.”
In seafaring folklore, “Davy Jones’ Locker,” refers to a sailor’s hell beneath the sea. The verbiage comes from a book, “The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle,” written in 1751, by Tobias Smollett. In Chapter XIII, Peregrine and two fellow sailors attempt to frighten Commodore Trinnion by a dreaded ghost, which the trio had concocted. It worked so well that Trinnion was frightened one evening by exclaiming: “I’ll be damned if it wasn’t Davy Jones himself! I know him by his huge saucer eyes, his three rows of teeth and tail and the blue smoke that came out of his nostrils.” According to seafaring mythology, Davy Jones sits on the rigging during hurricanes and storms warning of death and disaster. To call someone “Mad as a Hatter,” refers to a person not in their right mind, but did that term come from Lewis Carroll’s 1865 book “Alice in Wonderland?” No. it was used long before Carroll’s book. Hat makers used mercury in manufacturing headwear. After years of toiling in a hat factory, workers would often become mentally ill from mercury poisoning. The term was used to describe one of Carroll’s main characters. It’s so cold it could "Freeze the Balls Off a Brass Monkey” is a sailing warship term, contrary to those in modern times who try to make it an indecent remark. Sailing warships of the 16th through 19th centuries were armed with cannons. Alongside each cannon were brass platforms, known as “monkeys,” holding stacks of cannon balls, making them conveniently available for gunners mates to grab them quickly to reload. With this explanation, during cold weather, the saying is self-explanatory.
"To Burn One's Bridges" comes from the days of Caesar. When he would invade a country to conquer it, Caesar would burn all bridges his armies used to cross into the foreign territory. To Caesar, retreat was not an option. The burning of bridges was an incentive used for his officers and soldiers, giving them no alternative but to push ahead and conquer the enemy.

scream as the bullet hit him in the wrist; the youth saw shrapnel from the shot had embedded into his own left arm. Ehlke was shot in the left biceps before he dove for cover. Ehlke emerged from cover to drag his friend to safety and was shot again in the leg. A 64-year-old local shopkeeper named Homer Kelly helped drag the wounded duo— plus Herman—into his shop, before he was shot and wounded in the leg. To the rear of the intersection of 24th and Guadalupe Street, Whitman targeted two 21-yearolds, Oscar Royvela and Irma Garcia, as the pair walked toward the university's biology laboratory. Shot first, Garcia later said the bullet spun her "completely around" and she fell to the ground. Royvela tried to help Garcia when he was shot through the shoulder blade; the bullet exited through his left arm. Students Jack Stephens and Jack Pennington ran from cover and dragged the pair to safety. Whitman targeted a 26year-old carpenter named Avelino Esparza and seriously wounded him in the left shoulder. Directly in front of the entrance to the West Mall on Guadalupe Street, two 18-year-old students named Paul Sonntag and Claudia Rutt had taken refuge behind a construction barricade alongside teenager Carla Sue Wheeler. Whitman started shooting in that direction and hit Sonntag in the mouth, killing him instantly. Sonntag's body fell against a parking meter and knocked the barricade slightly open. Rutt tried to reach Sonntag while Wheeler restrained her; Whitman shot a bullet that took three fingers of Wheeler's left hand, and hit Rutt in the chest. Rutt died later in hospital; Wheeler survived. A block north of where Sonntag and Rutt were killed, Whitman shot and killed Harry Walchuk, a 38-year-old doctoral student and father of six. He next shot the 36-year-old press reporter Robert Heard in the arm as Heard ran toward two highway patrolmen coming on the scene. Slightly north, 18-year-old freshman John Allen was wounded in the forearm as he and acquaintances looked toward the tower from the University of Texas Union.
Having seen several students shot in the South Mall, a history professor was the first to telephone the Austin Police Department at 11:52 a.m.; four minutes after Whitman had first fired from the tower. Austin patrolman Billy Speed was one of the first police officers to arrive at the University. He and a colleague took refuge behind a columned stone wall but

Life Beyond the Grave
Last month I wrote about dying and the need to prepare for death. This month is a natural to write about life beyond this world because of Easter, the traditional day of Jesus’ resurrection, and what that has meant for millions of people since then, as well as today.
The question about an afterlife has long been considered. Ancient man and perhaps even the Neanderthals seemed to have some idea of an afterlife by burying personal items and food in preparation for the next life. The American Indian had a belief in a happy hunting
Christianity, a religion founded in the first century, claimed that the person, Jesus Christ, arose from the dead with a physical-spiritual body and taught that all who believed in his life giving power would also be resurrected with the same kind of body for all eternity. Many, in the same religion, believe that all human beings will be resurrected and their ultimate disposition will be determined by belief and deeds.
So is there life beyond the grave? It has long been a hope. Yet, until one dies he or she will not know, in spite of the claims of those who purport to have been there, that there really is an afterlife. Nor will we know for sure with all the Easter services, chocolate bunnies, colored eggs, and new clothes. We will have to wait until ----------------.

Texas Tower Sniper’ Cont. from Page 10
duty officers, Travis County Sheriff's deputies, and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers also converged on the area.
Approximately 20 minutes after first shooting from the observation deck, Whitman began to encounter return fire from both the police and other armed citizens. One Texas Ranger used a student as spotter to help locate the sniper. At this point, Whitman chose to fire through waterspouts located on each side of the tower walls. This action argely protected him from gunfire below, but limited his range of targets. Police sharpshooter Marion Lee reported from a small airplane that he had observed a single sniper firing from the observation deck. Lee tried to shoot Whitman from the plane, but the turbulence proved too great. Whitman shot at the plane, and it moved off to circle from a greater distance. Three officers who responded to reports of the sniper were Ramiro Martinez, Houston McCoy and Jerry Day. Prior to advancing upon the tower, McCoy had seen his colleague Billy Speed killed. Both Martinez and Day had driven to the University of Texas after listening to radio reports.
Accompanied by 40-year-old civilian Allen Crum—whom the trio encountered as they ran
toward the tower—they were the first to reach the tower's observation deck. After reaching the 26th floor by elevator, they encountered M. J. Gabour. Gabour—clutching his wife's shoes— screamed that his family had been shot and tried to wrestle the rifle from Day to shoot Whitman himself. Day consoled Gabour and led him to safety before joining McCoy, Crum and Martinez as they walked up to the 27th floor. Beneath the stairwell leading to the reception area, Officer Martinez saw the body of a teenage boy, Mark Gabour. Next to him lay a middle-aged woman, Marguerite Lamport. Nearby, Mike Gabour lay slumped against the wall, with his mother lying face down in a pool of blood. The officers turned Mary Gabour onto her side to prevent her from drowning in her own blood. Mike Gabour gestured to the observation deck and said, "He's out there.
Who actually killed Whitman is in dispute. Legends die hard in Texas, and so the truth may never be known about who really killed Charles Whitman on top of the University of Texas tower here nearly three decades ago.
Was it Officer Ramiro Martinez, showered with national acclaim as a true Texas hero, who rode that fame in a 20-year career with the fabled Texas Rangers and was lionized in a made-forTV movie?

Two Fun Events at the Oceanside Public Library
Come out and enjoy two fun filled events sponsored by Friends of the Oceanside Public Library.
Gypsy jazz music by Django Fetts will be presented as part of the 2015 World Music Series. The free concert will be held on Saturday, April 4, at 1:00 pm in the Civic Center Library Community rooms, located at 330 N. Coast Highway. Performance time will be 1:00 pm with doors for the free concert opening at 12:45 pm. Seating is open and free parking is available in the Civic Center parking garage. Django Fetts consists of music majors from the San Diego State Uni-
Or was it Officer Houston McCoy, a lanky, slow-moving drifter who eventually left police work and took a twisted trail that has left him drunk, broke and divorced? "I'm a west Texas cowboy and west Texas cowboys don't normally open their mouths," McCoy said the other day, after all these years coming forth to claim, with a good deal of proof, that he is the real hero. The important thing is, Charles Whitman was finally shot and killed. The rampage lasted less than two hours with most of the deaths and injuries occurring in the first 15 to 20 minutes.
All of which brings us back to the original thesis of Dr. Stuart Brown. Did the abusive behavior toward Whitman by his
versity Masters’ program, playing in the style of the great Django Reinhardt and putting a creative twist on gypsy jazz by highlighting the uniqueness of the music in interesting ways. On April 17th in the same location, Rebecca Martin, a professional storyteller and entertainer for over a decade, will tell vibrant stories with animated delivery Rebecca reaches the hearts of children ages 0-5 while developing imagination and communicating abilities. Her interactive and sparkling style is sure to delight all participants and the event is free! For more information regarding these and other Friends of the Library events, please call 760-435-5600.

The Paper • Page 12 • April 02, 2015 The two men turned around and stared at him. “Why not?” asked the first man.
“Because they will always break your heart,” he said softly.
“The Padres will break my heart?” scoffed the second man.
Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
It’s baseball season again and San Diego stands alone among America’s largest cities in never having won a professional or college national championship in any major sport (baseball, basketball and football). We’ve come close with trips to the Super Bowl, World Series and NCAA but somehow we always fall short. Why? Nome and I found the answer one cold, rainy winter night at a tavern in Julian The cold wind blew curtains of rain down Julian’s dark, empty streets. Inside Bailey’s Barbecue and Tavern the air was warm and filled with the savory aromas of wood smoke and roasting meat. After dinner we sat nursing our drinks listening to two men at the bar talking enthusiastically about the Padres prospects for a breakout season this year. A dark, well dressed man sat alone at the bar apparently listening to the conversation. He paid his tab and, on the way out, stopped behind the two men. “Let me give you some friendly advice” he said with a smile. “Never bet the rent money on the Padres.”
The World of...
Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant
In our last column, we answered some of the most frequently asked questions about reverse mortgages. In this column, we will wrap up our 4 part introduction to reverse mortgages by hearing from someone who actually has a reverse mortgage … my father, Patrick Jacovino Sr. I asked him some questions about his experience and what his thoughts were about his reverse mortgage. Here is what he had to say: Me : How has the reverse mortgage
“Yes” said the dark man, “and not just the Padres. The Chargers, USD, UCSD and San Diego State, they will all break your heart. It cannot be changed, it’s The Curse” He waved goodnight to Amanda, the bartender, and continued toward the door.
The first man yelled after him “That’s superstition man; there is no such thing as curses.”
He turned at the door. “Really?” He smiled and stepped out into the night. “What the hell is he talking about,?” asked the first man looking at Amanda. Amanda shrugged her shoulders. “It’s true, there’s a curse.”
The only other people in the restaurant were a young couple sitting at a nearby table. The young woman had approached the bar while the two men were talking to the stranger. She leaned over the bar toward Amanda “Would you tell us about the curse?” She asked eagerly. “We’d love to hear about it.”
Amanda stopped washing glasses and sighed. “It’s very sad and kind of eerie. Are you sure you want to hear about it?” she asked. We all nodded. Nome and I moved up to the bar beside the young couple. We sat in the dim light waiting. Amanda began. “In 1929 San Diego State was buying land on Montezuma Mesa for their new campus. An Indian clan living on Vulcan Mountain owned the property that SDSU needed for their athletic
changed your life? Pat: “It has allowed me a lot more financial freedom than I had before I got it. Before the reverse, I had a $900 mortgage payment on my limited pension and social security income. With the price of everything rising all the time, my fixed income does not go nearly as far as it used to. As you know Skip, I have been working a part time job for a few years now to make ends meet and not keep dipping into my savings when something happens..like a house repair or a car repair. Before the reverse, if the hot water heater broke, it was very stressful, because I know that my money was very tight as far as a monthly budget and I knew that it was going to be money that I would have to try to work more hours to get back. It felt like at times I could not keep up with the expenses. Now, with the reverse mortgage, I still work, but the money I earn, I am able to put into savings…which was something I was not able to do before. I mean, I haven’t even thought about using the credit line I got with the reverse mortgage because now I am able to save and don’t really need the credit line.” Me: So in other words, you have a credit line but don’t feel you need it right now? Pat: “Yeah, exactly. It is nice to know it is there, but right now I am putting that $900 that used to go to my monthly mortgage straight into my savings. That way, when something unexpected happens, I can go to the savings and not use the credit line. It is a great feeling to be able to put money away in savings again like I used to before I retired.” Me: Is there anything about the reverse mortgage that you don’t like? Pat: “Yeah…that I didn’t do it sooner! (he laughs). Seriously, though, I know I am accruing inter-
fields. The tribe agreed to sell the property with the stipulation that the school would supply basketball, baseball and football equipment for the clan’s reservation school. In addition SDSU would provide a full athletic scholarship for a student of the clan’s choosing every four years. In 1931, tribal elder Mountain Bear’s son received the first four-year scholarship as a baseball pitcher.” “As the years passed the school honored the scholarship but the coach never played the lad. In the boy’s senior year Mountain Bear complained to the University President who pressured the baseball coach into promising to play Mountain Bear’s son in the final game of the season.”
“The big day arrived and the entire Vulcan Mountain clan came to the playing fields on Montezuma Mesa to see Mountain Bear’s son pitch for the Aztecs. It was a tight game with the conference championship on the line. The clan members grew restive as Mountain Bear’s son continued to sit on the bench. In the bottom of the eighth with the score tied. Coach sent Mountain Bear’s son to warm up in the bull-pen along with ace reliever, Wally McComb.” “The excitement grew as Coach signaled the bullpen for a ninth inning relief pitcher, but it was McComb who walked to the mound. He was tagged for a two-out solo home run and the Aztecs failed to score in the bottom of the ninth. Game over. Mountain Bear’s son was nowhere to be found in the bull pen or the dugout after the game. When the team went back to the locker room they found Mountain Bear’s son hanging, lifeless, in the showers.” At that moment there was a flash of lightning followed immediately by a crash of thunder that shook the building. The lights in the bar dimmed and then brightened. The room suddenly seemed to grow cold. Amanda shivered. “What happened then?” asked the first
est on the loan that gets tacked on, but that does not worry me. I am more concerned with the comfort and quality of my life now. I can’t take the house with me when I go…what do I care what I owe on it when I go?” (laughs again) Me: Well, true..and we kids don’t really need your home equity either, we are all fairly well established. But you still will have some good equity in the house for the foreseeable future. Pat: That is good to know, but as I said, I am more concerned with being able to enjoy the time I have left. I want to be able to take my grandkids out to do stuff and not have to worry about the money part. Now, I can. I feel like I can spoil them…and myself too. I am thinking about taking a trip to Irelend. Want to go?” (laughs again) Me: You bring up Ireland all the
“The clan took Mountain Bear’s son home to Vulcan Mountain that night and buried him in sacred ground. At the end of three days of mourning they built a huge fire and burned all the athletic equipment that SDSU had provided. As thick smoke rolled down the mountain and spread out toward San Diego the tribal elders stood with Mountain Bear atop Vulcan Mountain. Mountain Bear spoke The Curse. “For one hundred years San Diego’s teams will win no championship game.” The second man said, “That means that we could never win a World Series or Super Bowl.” “Or an NCAA championship either” chimed in the first man. Amanda nodded, “that’s right, at least in football, basketball and baseball.” “And” she added softly, “we never have.”
“So who was that guy?” asked the first man. “He’s the great-great grandson of Mountain Bear.” Said Amanda
“You don’t really believe in The Curse do you Amanda?” snorted the first man.
Amanda leaned forward “Well then, you explain it. None of our teams have ever won any of those championships and the Padre’s have the worst all time won/lost record in the majors. Besides, it doesn’t matter what I believe, he believes it and he puts his money where his mouth is.” “He bets against our teams?” asked the second man incredulously. “Sure does,” said Amanda. “Did you happen to notice the red car parked out front when you came in?” The second man’s jaw dropped. “That was his Ferrari?”
time Pop..let’s stop talking about it and just do it! Pat: We are going to this time…I have the means to be serious about it now.” Me: Because of the reverse? Pat: Yep…I am very glad I took your advice son and just did it. It has been a game-changer.” Me: Well, even an old dog can learn a new trick. Pat: Who you calling old? (He whacks me on the head and laughs again) In our next column, I will discuss using a mortgage refinance for debt-consolidation. This is becoming prevalent again as more and more people use credit cards to survive in our volatile economy. As always, contact me anytime with any questions or to check interest rates…there is never a charge or obligation.
