Back when we lived in Oak Park, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, we lived about five blocks from 1147 S. Wenonah. That address doesn’t mean much today but back then . . . that was the home of the late Sam “Momo” Giancana, kingpin of the Chicago Mafia. He was a colorful figure. Dated Phyliss McGuire, one of the McGuire sisters (a popular singing group from the 50’s), had connections throughout the United States and was generally welcomed as mob royalty most anywhere he went.
Except for a few . . . who didn’t like Mo. The 1975 gangland rub-out of the Outfit’s former top boss, Sam Giancana; he was killed in the basement of his suburban Oak Park home by a trusted friend, June 19; shot once in the back of the head, once in the mouth, and five times under the chin as he fried a late-night snack in his basement kitchen; later, a silencer-equipped 22 caliber murder weapon was found lying beside a road. Mo was still alive when we moved to the Chicago area, but it was still a routine practice for us to take family and friends who visited us for a little drive to see Moe’s home on S. Wenonah St., then over to see “Big Tony” Accardo’s home in River Forest. We’d also go into Cicero and see the places where the late Al Capone used to hang out . . . and beat up people with a baseball bat.
Some of the article, brilliantly researched, touched on the relationship between Frank Sinatra and Giancana.

Palm Springs and the Mafia
So it was with considerable interest, then, that I read of a fascinating story by Bruce Fessier, of The Desert Sun, the daily newspaper in Palm Springs. Dear friend and former Escondido Mayor, Alan Skuba, was kind enough to send me the story and I present excerpts here for your enjoyment. The series dealt with the history of the mafia and gambling influence in the Palm Springs area. At only about 100 miles away from us . . . we may realistically consider them as neighbors.

Frank Sinatra had an entrepreneurial spirit rare for an artist. He was one of the first artists to own his own film production company and record label. When his primary venues became Nevada casinos, he wanted to buy one.
But the singer may not have shown enough discretion when it came to his business dealings or his associations with figures linked to organized crime. Sinatra not only became a partner in the Cal-Neva Lodge at Lake Tahoe with Giancana, but Frank Rose, author of "The Agency," says he bought two points — worth about $50,000 — in the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas when it opened in 1952 under the primary ownership of a New York group including Frank Costello, Vincent "Jimmy Blue Eyes" Alo, and Joseph "Doc" Stacher. But former FBI agent Clayton Taylor, who was stationed at Sinatra's Rancho Mirage compound in 1963 after the kidnapping of Frank Jr., is convinced Sinatra wasn't a member of the Mafia. He learned from another Tamarisk resident that entertainers could work for the mob without being

part of it.
"Danny Thomas told me," Taylor says, 'People accuse us of associating with organized crime, but in the (early) '30s, the speakeasies were operating and I was earning a living in a speakeasy. I saw things. I didn't say anything because it was my living. I was not connected with it, but I did have to associate with them because of that.' That made sense." Sinatra had a long history of being around organized crime figures. But his long-time opening comic, Tom Dreesen, says he came to regret many of those early mob associations.
"Whenever people say to me, 'Did Frank Sinatra know Mafia people?' I say, 'Of course he did. He worked for them in the clubs like we all did at some point in our careers,' " Dreesen says. "Heads of corporations wanted to know Frank Sinatra. Heads of state wanted to know Frank Sinatra. Heads of Mafia wanted to know Frank Sinatra. Frank Sinatra was a man of power and a very interesting man of power.
"But I'll tell you something else that Frank Sinatra told me. The last 20 years of his life, none of those people were in his life. He said he rued the day that he ever made friends with those guys because they won't

Then, years later, the grandson will come and say, 'My grandfather helped you out.' They won't get out of your life." September 1976, and Sinatra is performing at the Westchester Premier Theatre in Tarrytown, New York. After the show he's greeted backstage by one of the biggest congregations of mobsters since the Apalachin conference of 1957.
Paul "Big Pauly" Castellano, Gregory De Palma, Tommy "Fatso" Marson, Carlo "Boss of Bosses" Gambino, Jimmy "the Weasel" Fratianno, Salvatore Spatola, Joe Gambino and Richard Fusco all line up to have their photo taken with Ol' Blue Eyes.
The singer puts his arms around De Palma and Marson, and produces a big Cheshire cat grin for the camera. Sinatra grew up in an Italian neighborhood in New Jersey, so he feels comfortable around guys like this. Now they long to be identified with him. Sinatra explains his philosophy to his wife, Barbara: "If I'm working some joint they

The Sinatra photo is made public during the trial. Everyone wonders, how could he allow himself to look so chummy around those guys? One theory is that Sinatra agreed to do the gigs as a favor to Louis "Louie Dones" Pacella, a member of New York's Genovese family. Others say Sinatra and his attorney, Mickey Rudin, were in on the skim. Another connection is Marson, who like Sinatra, has a home in Tamarisk Country Club. "Fatso" isn't exactly a Mafia bigwig. In fact, when the photo comes out, people wonder just who is. And how did he get a recommendation to join Tamarisk?

When he arrives home at the end of the year, his Father is all excited. "Where's Ol' Blue? I just can't wait to see him read something and talk!"
"Dad," the boy says, "I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Ole' Blue was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually does". "Then Ol' Blue turned to me and asked, so, is your Daddy still messing around with that little redhead who lives down the street?"
A young Arkie goes off to college. Half way through the semester, having foolishly squandered all of his money on his girlfriend, he calls home.
"That's amazing," his Dad says. "How do I get Ol' Blue in that program?"
This particular joint is owned by the mob. It goes bankrupt two years later and the investors are accused of taking skims, contributing to its demise. Three guys in the photo — Marson, DePalma and Fusco — are indicted with stockbroker Elliot Weisman and Anthony "Nino" Gaggi, DePalma's capo under Castellano.

"So how's Ol' Blue doing son?" his Father asks.
"Awesome, Dad, he's talking up a storm," he says, "but you just won't believe this -they've had such good results they have started to teach the animals how to read!"
"Read!?" says his Father, "No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?"
"Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class."
The money promptly arrives. The Arkie and his girlfriend are able to buy enough marijuana to last the whole semester. But our hero has a problem. At the end of the year, his Father will find out the dog can neither talk nor read. Even though he was always pretty much able to lie his way out of trouble, the Arkie asked his girlfriend to help him think of a really good

Marson's been linked to New York's Gambino family, but he's from the small town of Fairhaven, Michigan. In "Sinatra: The Life," authors Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan describe Marson as making a call from a Palm Springs restaurant instructing Sinatra to perform at the Westchester in April, September and October of 1976, and in May of 1977. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy made his brother, President John F. Kennedy, stay at Bing Crosby's Palm Desert house during a 1962 Coachella Valley visit because he thought Frank Sinatra was too closely associated with mobsters to host a visit from the president of the United States. Granted, Sinatra had produced JFK's 1961 inaugural celebration, but Chicago mob boss Sam Giancana had also been a past visitor at Sinatra's Tamarisk Country Club home.
So JFK had a bacchanal weekend with Marilyn Monroe and a White House intern at Crosby's Ironwood Country Club home while Crosby was out of town. Sinatra was so angry that Kennedy chose not to stay in the bungalow he was building for him, he fired Kennedy's brother-in-law, Peter Lawford, from the film production of his ironicallytimed Chicago mob musical, "Robin and the Seven Hoods," and replaced him with Crosby. Lawford was never let back into Sinatra's Rat Pack and Crosby moved out of the Coachella Valley after "Robin and the Seven Hoods" was released. But Crosby had his own associations with the Mafia. He wrote in his autobiography, "Call Me Lucky," he wound up hanging with a gangster involved in Chicago's St. Valentine's Day massacre in 1929 after a night of drinking something that knocked him for a loop. When he regained consciousness, the gangster told him he should stay holed up with his boys for a while because there had been a shooting.
Crosby staggered to the bathroom to splash water on his face when he heard what sounded like six cars backfiring. Then there were screams. In the time it took for him to get his head together, a rival gang had enacted revenge by spraying his drinking buddies with bullets. The smooth-sounding crooner went on to become an Academy Award-winning actor and
entrepreneur. But, unlike Sinatra, he preferred to stay out of the limelight whenever possible after curtailing the hard-drinking ways of his youth.
At the height of the Great Depression, Detroit card sharks Al and Lou Wertheimer blow into Palm Springs like a sand storm, vowing to solve the town's economic woes. "We'll fill your hotels," the brothers tell 15 village leaders, still reeling from the closure of the town's luxury El Mirador Hotel. "All you have to do is not complain to the sheriff." Their solution: a casino.
Nevada had recently legalized gambling, and other cities with lax policies toward it — such as Miami and Hot Springs, Arkansas — are becoming bustling tourist centers. The Agua Caliente Casino and Resort in Tijuana, founded just three years earlier in 1928, is thriving with customers from Southern California. A casino, they say, will draw those tourists to Palm Springs.
The Wertheimers are associates of the infamous Purple Gang, a predominantly Jewish mob of bootleggers and hijackers. Along with their brother Mert, they ran Detroit's Colony Club until it was raided in 1924. Authorities discovered secret passageways and a steel-lined lookout turret equipped with guns and 1,500 rounds of ammunition. So the brothers high-tailed it out of town. Mert went into business in Miami with Meyer Lansky, one of the most powerful mobsters in the country. Al and Lou started the Shawnee Club in Cleveland, where the sheriff declared himself "neutral" on gambling. In October 1931, Cleveland's public safety director closed the Shawnee and the Wertheimers ventured west to try their luck in Palm Springs.
Enter Nellie "Mother" Coffman, a city founder and owner of the Desert Inn, who leads those adamantly opposed to a casino in Palm Springs. Like an anti-gambling version of Carrie Nation, Coffman charges up to Al Wertheimer in a fire truck and barks, "If you open that place, we'll wash you out of town."
The story becomes part of Palm Springs folklore, attested to by Palm Springs Bank of America President Fred Ingram. Apocryphal or not, Wertheimer abandons Palm Springs and builds the Dunes Club on a 20-acre plot of sand surrounded by date palms in Cathedral City.
Dunes Club in 1930. The casino/restaurant features a classy
Spanish stucco-and-tile exterior. The interior has dark wood, plush carpet, crystal chandeliers and velvet hangings. A circular dining room adjoining the long mahogany bar serves Kansas corn-fed steak and Maine lobster for $5. Patrons wear dinner jackets to play cards and dice games. An orchestra plays for dancers.
As a concession to the city leaders, most locals aren't admitted so they don't lose their hardearned wages to professional gamblers. To ensure only the right people get in, a guard dressed in black tie peers through an aperture in the massive front door.
"They wanted the visitors," high school teacher Moya Henderson recalls years later. "If you're in business and you go there and lose money, you're going to gripe and cause trouble." Henderson's husband, Joe, a Ford salesman, slips past the Dunes' doorman more than once. Getting into the Dunes is like being back stage at Coachella — the hipsters of the day hung out there. The locals naturally want to check it out.
"Service people wanted to go to the casinos, but you wouldn't dare be seen in a uniform there," Henderson, 98, says. "Joe was helping out at the fire department and there was one guy who was really itching to go, and we had to get civilian clothes for him. We got Bill Marvin (manager of Palm Springs Sporting Goods) out of bed and he gave him the clothes. I was very antsy. He steps out of the car and (someone) greets us and the guy says, 'That's my commanding officer!'" Fatal mistake
Ray Ryan climbs into his luxury Mark V Lincoln Continental after a workout at the Olympia Health and Beauty Resort in his wife's hometown of Evansville, Indiana. He turns the key in the ignition and a spark sets off a deadly explosion. The 73-year-old oilman, developer, gambler and philanthropist is blown to pieces.
The local cops call it a mob hit. Ryan was from Palm Springs, after all, a known gangster's paradise. The events that led to Ryan's death on Oct. 18, 1977, were set in motion nearly three decades before. It's 1949 and Ryan is playing a private lowball poker game with professional gambler Nicholas "Nick the Greek"

Secretary of State and is now running for President. Text Messages from the Heart!
A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husband. The women were asked, "How many of you love your husband?" All the women raised their hands.
Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?" Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn't remember. The women then were told to take out their cell phones and text to their husband: "I love you, sweetheart."
The women then were instructed to exchange phones with another person, and to read aloud the text message they received, in response to their message.
Below are 12 replies; some are hilarious. If you have been married for quite a while, you understand that these replies are a sign of true love ... who else would reply in such a succinct and honest way? 1. Who is this?
2. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick or what? 3. Yeah, and I love you too. What's wrong?
4. What now? Did you crash the car again?
5. I don't understand what you mean? 6. What for heaven’s sake did you do now?
8. Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need? 9. Am I dreaming?

John Francis McGuire, 44, a Carlsbad ear, nose, and throat doctor, faces six felonies related to an alleged assault said to have happened at Temecula Valley Hospital on April 30. He also faces three misdemeanors accusing him of sexual contact with a patient under his care. If convicted the charges could carry up to 12 years in prison. Sheriff’s Investigator Cassandre Pemberton, says the victim gave to Sheriff’s deputies “audio recorded evidence,” which allegedly includes the doctor apologizing and confirming the allegation. Temecula Valley Hospital said the doctor resigned his privileges in June and no longer treats patients there. McGuire had opened a practice on July 29 at Graybill Medical Group in Escondido.

room a few years back.
When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions with my students. It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they're welcome. Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater. She holds up a snapshot of an infant. 'This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm going to tell you about his birthday.
First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord.' She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in amazement.
'Then, about two Saturdays
ago, my Mom starts going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!'
Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. 'She walked around the house for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!' (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.) 'My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn't have a sign on the car like the Domino's man. They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this.' (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)
'And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!' (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away. It was too much!) 'Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe. They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom's play-center, so there must be a lot of toys inside there.

new seismic safety standards with substantial compliance required by 2030. Failure to meet the standards requires that the buildings be demolished or demoted from acute care hospital service.

al construction of a new hospital campus on Citracado Parkway in West Escondido. Original estimates placed costs for the new hospital at $753 million. District voters approved $496 million in general obligation bonds along with a $ 210 million revenue bond issue that along with the district’s $47 million in cash was to pay for construction. Actual building costs rose rapidly to the $1 Billion range and the hospital finally opened after 33% in cost overruns totaling about $250 million. At least the two top floors of the eleven-floor structure were never finished and a planned parking structure was not built.
As part of the effort to obtain voter approval of the proposed bond issues the district committed to keeping the downtown Escondido campus open by housing birthing facilities there along with mental health units and an emergency clinic. However, recently the district announced plans to close the downtown hospital claiming the facility is losing almost $20 million annually. Responsibility for the losses is partially attributed to dividing medical services between two campuses, failure of growth to

Schools Gain More Budget Flexibility
In 2014 voters passed Proposition 2, a measure creating a `rainy day fund’ to provide a financial reserve that would help stabilize state finances and avoid future multi-billion dollar deficits that plagued California in recent years. The proposition had wide, bipartisan support and was widely hailed as a small, prudent step toward financial stability in state government.
Unfortunately, the need for a reserve fund to finance state government didn’t seem to apply to California’s schools. During last minute budget negotiations in 2014, the California Teachers Association persuaded Democratic leaders and the Governor to include a cap on school reserves so money tied up in reserve funds would be subject to future contract negotiations. The proposal, inserted into a last-minute budget trailer

bill, passed on a party-line vote with little fanfare or public debate.
Without reserve funds, it’s difficult for school districts to save for unforeseen costs, such as repairs or the purchase of new school busses. In addition, temporary taxes enacted by Proposition 30 will be phased out over the next 3 years, making the need for school reserve funds even more urgent. The cap also impairs district credit ratings, drives up interest payments and makes it much more expensive to borrow money needed for new buildings or other projects. I am pleased to report that on August 18 I voted on amendments to Senate Bill 799, which grants greater control of school funding to local school officials, exactly where it belongs. I am optimistic that the bill will receive final legislative approval, along with the Governor’s signature.

visited there several times to hear Pastor Huls speak and it is a delightful retirement home.
Speaking of Pastor Huls, he just returned from a successful fishing trip to Alaska and shipped home over 400 lbs. of fish. Salmon, Halibut, all kinds of fish. Still, 400 lbs. of fish? That’s a lot of fish to eat and an expensive shipping bill. ? I poined out to him that it would have been a lot cheaper to go to the local fish market but he correctly observed, “Yes, but that doesn’t have the same exciement as being on board a fishing boat with fellow fishermen and fighting the mighty fish into the boat.” Pastor Huls is an outdoorsman of the first order, having grown up in Michigan he learned the fine arts of hunting, fishing, and, somewhere along he line, preaching. He is a superb preacher. In addition to being a fine preacher he’s an outstanding public speaker on secular matters . . . bee-keeping, for example . . . or of his several years of having lived in the Holy Lands. He has an excellent perspective on world affairs and he and I discuss them often over a cup of coffee, usually at Escondido’s Major Market coffee shop.
Who knows what the downtown Escondido property is worth? The hospital buildings have been written off district books for over 40 to 60 years, so market value of those assets and the land must certainly dwarf the hospital’s book values. How much of the district’s current debt attach to the property it seeks to sell? What is a realistic estimate of district’s equity in the property and how might the district use sale proceeds? Since North San Diego County homeowners are on the hook for district bonds one would think they should be entitled to a more complete understanding of the district’s plans. Absent any further disclosures district residents can only hope when a sale is completed the district will have less debt and a fully completed, full service hospital.
The Escondido Chamber of Commerce is currently forming a committee to consider future uses of the buildings. Thus far suggestions range from consolidating local non-profit operations there and a variety of retail and office uses. But, a strong case can be made for continuing to focus upon medical uses including a downtown urgent care facility and an outpatient surgical center. The buildings are sound for most any ambulatory patient care though it is understood there are some plumbing and electrical issues that need correcting. No doubt the hospital district would prefer to convert the Escondido buildings to cash as soon as possible and that may well be in the best interest of district residents. However, for the future health of Escondido possible uses of the downtown property must be carefully deliberated.

The Owens Valley War
Over the years, there has been much fighting within the state of California over gold, land, oil, but nothing like the clashes over water rights. California is a “have and have not” state – half of the state has water, the other is always in need.
Some of the most memorable of the water wars were the many disputes between Los Angeles and residents of the Owens Valley located in the eastern part of the state.
In the late 1800’s the city’s growth demanded more water. Los Angeles officials discovered much-needed water could be brought by aqueduct from
‘Chuckles’ Cont. on Page 8
the Owens Valley. The aqueduct construction was begun in 1913, overseen by William Mulholland, an engineer who worked on the Panama Canal. Unfortunately the Owens Valley water rights for Los Angeles were acquired through political maneuvering, in-fighting and a series of outright lies to Owens Valley landowners. By the 1920’s, enough water had been diverted from the Owens Valley that growing crops became so difficult that the farmers tried to destroy the aqueduct. But the attempt was foiled and Los Angeles kept the water flowing. By 1926, Owens Lake had been nearly drained, leaving the valley completely dry. In 1941, Los Angeles diverted water via the aqueduct that previously fed Mono Lake, which is north of Owens Valley. Between 1979 and 1994, the Mono Lake Committee brought successful lawsuits against Los Angeles, forcing the city to stop taking water from around Mono Lake. Aside from all of the early legal wrangling, the skullduggery continued. Mullholland was assisted by Fredrick Eaton, an official with the Los Angeles City Water Company.

me he was the best gambler ever," longtime Palm Springs Mayor Frank Bogert says years later. "He could remember every card." Ryan denies cheating, but pays Dandolos $26,000 to pacify him. This turns out to be a deadly mistake. The aftermath of the car bomb that killed Ray Ryan
Ryan continues to prosper in Palm Springs and gets caught up in the city's social whirl, cochairing charity events like the Desert Circus Ball at El Mirador, Palm Springs' first luxury hotel. He co-founds the Mt. Kenya Safari Club in Africa — a members-only vacation resort —with actor William Holden and businessman Carl Hirschmann. Ryan is a big man about town, so well-known Hollywood gossip columnist Louella Parsons dubs him "Mr. Palm Springs." But in 1963, a pair of Chicago mobsters get wind of Ryan's pay-off to Dandolos. They want in on the action.
Marshall Caifano, a stocky, five-foot, five-inch thug suspected of more than 10 slayings, has replaced Johnny Rosselli as Chicago Outfit boss Sam Giancana's Las Vegas representative. His partner is Charles Delmonico, a "roving ambassador" for The Outfit. They approach Ryan at El Mirador and demand protection money. Ryan phones mutual friend John Drew, who runs the mob-financed Stardust in Las Vegas. Drew says Caifano is "OK," so Ryan agrees to meet him at the Desert Inn in Vegas. Caifano's offer to "protect" Ryan from future shakedowns for $60,000 a year — peanuts for a multimillionaire. Ryan doesn't want to play, though, telling him to go to hell. Caifano says they're going for a little ride in the desert. Ryan gets in the car, bolts out of the back seat and runs. He calls the FBI. Caifano and Delmonico are arrested and put on trial in Los Angeles. Palm Springs FBI agent Clayton Taylor first met Ryan in 1959 while on special assignment.
"The hotel was trying to get a Teamsters loan," he recalls. "Back then, the Teamsters were getting kickbacks on the loans. So I came to talk to Ray Ryan and Frank Hayden, his general manager. The loan didn't go through because the Teamsters
found out we were investigating before it even got off the ground. But Ray Ryan was very friendly and when organized crime tried to shake him down, I got in on that. As the case progressed, Ryan agreed to testify. So I picked him up every morning, drove him into Los Angeles for court and brought him back every night. He was under protection for testifying against the mob. And they were convicted." Caifano is sentenced to 10 years; Delmonico gets five.
But during the trial, Ryan's income is questioned and the IRS files a civil suit for back taxes. Ryan pays a $2.5 million settlement, but in 1970 he's sentenced to three years in prison for conspiracy and obstruction of justice. A U.S. attorney says he falsified or destroyed records indicating he gave memberships to the Mt. Kenya Safari Club "to chieftains of the Mafia." Ryan's cooperation with the feds helps him avoid a three-year prison sentence on appeal. By the time Caifano is released from prison in December 1972, Tony "Big Tuna" Accardo, the consigliere of the Chicago Outfit, has bought a home in Indian Wells. Caifano wants to whack Ryan, but Accardo doesn't want trouble in his backyard. The gangsters won't permit hits in their paradise.
"That was the feeling I got," Taylor says. "They didn't permit anything to happen here because this was their haven for vacations."
Palm Springs resident Betsy Duncan Hammes, a former girlfriend of Rosselli and a singer at El Mirador lounge, says it was no secret in mob circles that there was a contract out on Ryan. "That was (ordered by) that guy from Chicago, Marshall," she says. "I saw Marshall Caifano one time. I was singing at the Desert Inn and the FBI came in and carried him out of the casino by his legs. I even asked Johnny Rosselli about that. He said, 'Ah, he's all right.' I said, 'Well, he's not all right when he puts out that he's going to kill somebody.' [Roselli] said nothing."
In June 1975, Giancana is assassinated in Chicago — possibly by Rosselli and Joey "Doves" Aiuppa, who takes over the Outfit's day-to-day operations and buys a winter home in Palm Springs. But with Caifano still hanging around, itching to get his hands on Ryan, Aiuppa and Accardo decide Ryan has to go — as long as it doesn't go down in the Coachella Valley.

After Ryan's murder — never officially solved — it becomes harder to deny the presence of mobsters in Palm Springs. California Attorney General Evelle Younger says the Chicago Outfit is all over the Coachella Valley, hanging out in places like the Racquet Club, Melvyn's at the Ingleside Inn, Dominick's, Di Amico's and Pal Joey's. Fact or fiction?
That tragedy at the core of the Mafia's criminal activity has been gilded through years of twice told-tales, now indelibly engrained in our pop culture. Melvyn's owner Mel Haber goes so far as to call himself "a Mafia fan." He certainly doesn't support the deeds of sociopathic killers. He still shivers at the suggestion that a hit was once put on his head in New York before moving to Palm Springs in 1974. Haber told a friend a mobster was having an affair with the friend's wife. According to Haber, he was lucky to get out of the Big Apple alive. Melvyn's

It is no secret that I love libraries! Several years ago, the Escondido City Council voted (4:1) to slash funding to the public library, closing a heavily used East Valley Branch and selling the books and shelves for pennies on the dollar.

It also seemed what is time's true value in your business and personal life; and the top seven ways to be the pilot--how to plan, prioritize and prosper.

Pastor Tom Fry (retired) Church of the Nazarene A New Beginning
Our daughter is going back to teaching this fall after being out of the classroom for several years raising our grandchildren. So last week before school starts, we have been busy helping out with pick ups and drop offs at school activities for the older ones and taking care of the younger ones.
This week, everyone is in school. And, it’s only August, barely into the second half. School starts earlier and earlier and the summers get shorter and shorter. I wonder if today’s kids (and maybe even teachers) are like I was: anxious to get back to school
I also looked forward to a new school year because it represented a new beginning. A chance to start with a clean slate. All those missed homework assignments and hastily written book reports about books which had been more skimmed than read, disappeared with the last report card in June and the opening of school was a chance to start over again. The Christian faith is a lot like a new school year. It is a chance to start over, a new beginning with a clean slate. The sins of the past are forgiven and swept away just like unfinished assignments. And they are never held against us again.
The thousands of students going back to school this week are not greeted by a stern teacher asking for homework assignments for last year. That chapter is closed, a new chapter is beginning. Some has accumulated a lot of unifinished assignments, a pile of regrets and broken hopes. The promise of Christianity is that there can be a new beginning with a clean slate.
As school starts with new hopes and dreams for a better year, check out a church in your neighborhood when you can also find new hopes and new dreams.

She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing.
“These,” she explained, “are the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produce.”
She then asked, “What do you do in America with your old goats?” A spry old gentleman answered, “They send us on bus tours!”
They’re knocked over, but continue to ask: “So, how'd you persuade her to marry you?”
“What ? Did you tell her you were only 50?”
Bob smiled and said, “No, I told her I was 90.” ••••• Groups of Americans were traveling by tour bus through Switzerland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through the process of cheese making, explaining that goat's
Vista Library Designated as Cool Zone
San Diego County has set up Cool Zone sites, mostly located in the hottest areas of the county, to help older adults and others keep cool and save energy costs.
The Vista Library has been designated as a Cool Zone location as it provides an air-conditioned setting where seniors and others can gather. The Library encourages people to share air conditioning during the heat of the day, lowering individual usage and helping to conserve energy for the whole community. Residents can use of-

Ingleside Inn projects an old Palm Springs feel with the power to transport back to the days when gangsters, stars and society figures roamed the town. The lights are dim. The bar is long. The pictures on the wall are of stars from the era when Lucky Luciano ruled the underworld. Haber boasts about the presence of mobsters at his Palm Springs joint.
"There were so many fabulous characters," he says. "Every mob guy came here.

The Win10 Upgrade
What is an upgrade? In computer terms a true “upgrade” is the latest version of, and an “improvement” over something you already have.
In the case of Microsoft’s Windows OS (operating systems,) ”upgrades” are inevitable, “improvements” are not. Windows ME, Vista and Win 8/8.1 were called “upgrades” by Microsoft but they weren’t “improvements.” Those products failed when users decided that old versions were better than the “upgrades.” On the other hand Win 98, Win XP and Win7 “upgrades” were successful because users saw genuine “improvement.” So is the Win10 “upgrade” an “improvement?” Since Win10 is essentially a “go-back” to the popular Win7, it allows unhappy Win8 users to dump the tiles and go back to the Win7 style desktop.
‘Tom Morrow’ Cont. from Page 7
Beginning in 1902, Eaton used less-than-ethical tactics to get water rights for Los Angeles. A key U.S. Reclamation official, Joseph Lippincott, became a close associate of Eaton, giving Los Angeles officials inside access to the government’s plans. He advised the city the best way to take the water rights from the Owens Valley. In 1907, Eaton solidified the deal by convincing President Theodore Roosevelt the water from the Owens River would be more beneficial to Los Angeles than to Owens Valley.
To make sure his efforts for the city were ensured, Eaton bought a ranch in the Owens Valley, and turned over all his ranch’s water rights free-ofcharge to the City of Los Angeles. Some historians say Eaton was devious; others say he was a shrewd businessman. Defenders say at the time, Los Angeles didn’t have the money to buy Eaton’s water rights and he was just being a good citizen. Later, a bond election paid Eaton for the rights, but he always denied any deception on his part. Mullholland reportedly misled Los Angeles as early as 1905. He understated the amount of
For Win8 users, Win10 could be considered an “improvement.” However, there are four times as many Win7 users as Win8 users and for them, Win10 offers no “improvement.” So is Win10 another Microsoft OS “upgrade” without being an “improvement?” Not to Microsoft. There may be no “improvement” for users but for Microsoft Win10 represents a dramatic “improvement” in their ability to capture information about you. For Microsoft, Win10 is definitely an “upgrade.”
While Win 10 does little for users, Win10 is a true “window” into Microsoft’s future and your privacy. Windows10 allows Microsoft to snoop, record, evaluate and sell every aspect of your private computer experience. That’s a giant leap forward for Microsoft in the Internet war to monetize every aspect of your life.
to keep your files you must store them somewhere, erase the old hard drive, install the new OS (including all drivers and updates) then copy your files back into the hard drive and reinstall your applications (programs, printer, etc.). That sounds like a lot of work to most people and Microsoft is afraid you won’t upgrade if they tell you to do it the right way so they tell you to simply push the button, sit back and enjoy an “easy upgrade.” That’s like painting your house without doing the prep work.
ago. The chance that Win10 is going to do an “easy upgrade” over this mess is not good. Even if everything looks good when it finishes, the next “automatic update” three days later is likely to shut you down.

who I am, huh?' He goes, 'Yes, I do.' 'Well, I'd rather you not tell anybody I'm here.' And, just to make sure, he says, 'I want to buy that ash tray for $100.' He says, 'Yes, sir!' "
Your old OS has suffered from “bit rot,” corruption, malware invasions, installing and uninstalling of applications, power failures and a thousand other unpleasant things since it was installed years
A clean install of Win 10 will work. If you have the time, tools and knowledge it can be a fun way to spend a day. If you feel frisky and want to try Win10’s “easy upgrade” we say go for it, you might “get lucky.” If you don’t have the time or the inclination to “do it yourself” we can handle the “clean” install for you. It costs between $90 and $135. It cost about the same to fix the “easy upgrade” when you don’t “get lucky.”
Once you accept the reality that anything you do or say on a PC, phone or tablet is fair game, Win10 is not a bad OS. It is essentially a bugged version of Win7. If you already have Win7 you probably won’t want to install Win10. If you have and hate Win8 you will probably consider installing Win10. There are some problems. In reality Win10 has been around for about eight years. Vista, Win7, Win8 and Win10 are all the same basic platform. Win10 should work just fine on almost any modern PC as long as it is a “clean” installation. In order to do a “clean” installation on an existing PC you must “erase” the hard drive and start over. If you want
water available for the city and misled Owens Valley residents saying the city would use only “unused flows.” But, all of the water was used to supply the San Fernando Valley, which flowed into the Los Angeles River, creating a large supply for the city. To add even more pressure on Owens Valley, a second aqueduct was built in 1970,
In 1991, Los Angeles and Inyo County signed a long-term water agreement requiring the pumping to be better managed. By 1994, most of the litigation had been settled with Los Angeles required to release water back into Mono Lake to raise the level and restore the ecosystem.
The 1974 Jack Nicholson film, “Chinatown,” was partially based upon the Owens Valley wars.

Pompeii in 1997. The former site of Pompeii in 2006, before the Glory former site of Pompeii in 2006, before the Glory of God Ministries built their church at the location.
Pompeii, now home to Glory To God Ministries in Cathedral City, was a Palm Springs hot spot in the 1980s and '90s. A gigantic fake volcano behind the south parking lot spewed smoke. A recording of George Burns, as the voice of God, no longer reverberated from the volcano as it once did, but lines of tourists still wound around the two-story building that housed huge, glittering dance floors. Lines of a cocaine were inhaled in the bathrooms. "It was a busy holiday weekend and one of my older, Italian bartenders, Russ, comes running into the office and says, 'You're not going to believe who is at my bar,' " Johns recalls "This guy was in the witness protection program and he's supposed to be in Arizona somewhere.” Sammy the Bull (Gravano).
"We had a promotion ash tray for one of the scotches, and Russ was so excited he was there, he kept staring at him. And the guy said, 'You know
The Pompeii property was purchased in the mid-'50s by Joe Hanna and the late Sherman Harris, owner of Sherman's Delicatessen. They leased it to Frank Sinatra, Lauren Bacall and a group of investors who, in 1959, built Romanoff's on the Rocks for Prince Michael Romanoff, a beloved rogue who claimed to be Russian nobleman. Romanoff's On the Rocks got a reputation as a place where gangsters mixed with the upper crust. Hanna managed the place, but also worked for the Dohrmann Hotel Supply Company of Los Angeles. His clients included the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and Spa Hotel, and Las Vegas casinos run by mob bosses like Meyer Lansky, Frank Costello and Moe Dalitz. When Romanoff's folded, it was reincarnated as Rimrocks by Vito Russo, an Italian-American who dressed the part of a Mafia don. "He was a rough kind of speaking guy," Hanna says. "He

Cosmetic - Ceramic (NonMetallic) Crowns - Smile Enhancements
Ceramic, Non-Metallic Crowns are the current rave for Cosmetic Smile Enhancements. Everyone wants teeth that, once restored, “Brighten Your Smile” and give you that overall “Glow” your face has begun to miss as we age and begin to wrinkle and tarnish a bit. Some of the old metal crowns caused allergic reactions and current research indicates they may be contributing to cancer formation. Metal crowns had been replaced in the mid-1960’s by porcelain jacket crowns. But by the mid-1980’s these crowns showed a 25% chance of failing after 11 years, with failure rates on posterior
teeth going much higher! Fortunately, in 1983 Horn, Simonsen and others introduced the first bonded porcelain crowns. Although these crowns didn’t fracture as often, they frequently came loose from their underlying teeth because their dental cements didn’t adhere well to dentin. Today, along with the development of newer cements, the modern day all-ceramic crowns have arrived. These new systems not only stay bonded to teeth well, they can also be categorized into two groups: those that are translucent and very natural in appearance and those that are more opaque having a higher-strength core that resist extreme chewing forces. Both are fabricated without a metal backing and therefore do not show their metal (called “shine through”) up by the gum line as their owner’s gums recede with age. There are several companies producing various formulations of these ceramics and
supplying them to the dental labs for crowns and bridges. Just to keep it simple, the opaque, stronger crowns are made from a Zirconia core and used in posterior teeth because they can withstand the stronger forces exerted in that region. The translucent, more color adjustable crowns are made from a pressured ceramic and are thus mostly used for anterior teeth. For those who have very strong bites and/or grind at night we now have a third option which allows us to “layer” porcelain onto the Zirconia based crowns resulting in stronger anterior teeth that won’t chip with their night-
In general the dentist will pick the appropriate cosmetic crown for you based on several factors including how much support is needed, whether the teeth are discolored, how much of the tooth is remaining, whether it will show when you’re speaking, eating, smiling, etc., as well as how much clearance you have with the opposing teeth, where your gum line is located, and finally, the color of your teeth. If you have an “unusual” color disposition, then the translucent crown may be the best choice!
