Volume 50 - No. 09

By Friedrich Gomez

Mention the word “hero” out loud and immediately most people think only of human beings. Rarely do the four-footed variety, namely dogs, ever come to mind. Sadly, dogs still remain, to this day, relatively unknown and unheralded, despite their ultimate sacrifice of laying down their lives to protect their respective owners. And even in service and defense of our country, they have paid the ultimate price of losing their precious lives so that we may live free. The Paper - 760.747.7119

There are just too many examples and too many ways in which dogs have distinguished themselves as true heroes. What you are about to read is just one, small part of their story. Just a cursory glance at their magnificent legacy of self-sacrifice and eventual death to protect human beings. And for all of this, they only ask to be hugged, accepted, and loved. This true-life story chronicles these heroic dogs. Who were abandoned and forgotten.

During the Vietnam War, approximately 5,000 U. S. war dogs served their country in various combat roles, along with about 10,000 dog handlers. (Note: The U. S. Army did not maintain accurate records of these war dogs prior to 1968, so numbers remain somewhat sketchy.) All four branches of the military used these dogs in Vietnam. The breakdown of dog handlers in Vietnam by military branch, in transmission order, were: Army = 65%, Air Force = 26%, Marines =

7%, Navy = 2%.

Scout dogs and their handlers were mainly trained at Ft. Benning, Georgia, the locale of their prestigious “Hell Paws” program, which boasts: “Through these doors pass the best-cared-for dogs in the world!” (Some, however, were trained “In-Country” in areas where they served.)

How truly valuable were these dogs in their service to our country? The most powerful reply is in the calculation of human beings

that were saved in Vietnam: K9 units saved an estimated 10,000 American servicemen who were able to come back home, alive – instead of in a body bag -- to rejoin their families, friends, loved ones, and raise their children. Vietnam veteran, Cpl John Kubisz, says with great emotion, “Somebody out there may have a father or brother right now who owes his life to one of these dogs. I just want everybody to know these animals actually existed and served their country.”

The amazing thing about these canine warriors is that they care little for themselves. Their first-priority of love and loyalty for their human counterpart is simply towering. Even when they, instinctively, sense that they are about to die they will, still, lovingly lay down their own lives to protect others. SPC Greg Blackwell, who served as a veterinarian for the U. S. Army in Vietnam says, “There would be a whole lot more than 50,000 names on the Vietnam Memorial Wall (in Washington, D. C.) without these dogs. And I don’t think the average American knows the role these dogs played.” Blackwell knows well of what he says. His veterinarian duties placed him up-close-and-personal with

these heroic Vietnam service dogs. The fact that they are hugely unrecognized saddens him: “There is no memorial to honor the war dogs of Vietnam (until recent years) . . . only memories of the men whose lives they saved. Memories of courage, companionship, and love and loyalty so deep . . . that it is hard for us to fathom.” But Vietnam was a very different war. At the end of World War II, the war dogs that served America so valiantly had a much better future. Like other soldiers, the dogs were shipped back home and given Honorable Discharges. They made loyal, loving pets for families across America.

After the Vietnam conflict, the dogs that had saved so many precious human lives were now forgotten. Out of nearly 5,000 dogs, only about 200 survived. Out of that number, many were euthanized, despite the pleas of their handlers. CPL John Flannelly, a 20-year-old from Massachusetts always had dogs when he was growing up. But he was not prepared for the harsh conditions of Southeast Asia, nor what was about to happen to him.

When he first stepped off his plane in Saigon, the intense humidity and heat that greeted him was like someone placing a pillow over his face, making breathing, at times, a chore. His U.S. Marine Corps fatigues didn’t make things cooler, by any stretch. Flannelly was soon

'So I take it your day of recreation was not relaxing?' 'Far from it,' snorted the Sister. 'In fact, I even took the Lord's name in vain today!' 'Goodness, Sister!' gasped the Mother Superior, astonished. 'You must tell me all about it!'

'Well, we were on the fifth tee ... and this hole is a monster, Mother Superior - 540 yard Par 5, with a nasty dog leg left and a hidden green .... and I hit the drive of my life. I creamed it. The sweetest swing I ever made. And it's flying straight and true, right along the line I wanted .. .and it hits a bird in mid-flight !' 'Oh my!' commiserated the Mother. 'How unfortunate! But surely that didn't make you blaspheme, Sister!'

assigned to the United States Marine Corps Scout Dog Platoon. His partnered-dog was a German Shepherd named “Bruiser.” Little did Flannelly know that his entire life would totally change. He says, with his thick Boston accent: “They had told me that this was gonna be my new best friend and that I probably would get closer to him than any human being I had ever known in my entire life. And they were right.” Flannelly and Bruiser went through a highly-intense training program and their combined working skills – and instincts – would become one. They worked together in perfect synch. Their bonding and interaction was so finely-tuned as to be reduced to quick automatic reaction, as opposed to second-hand thinking. “I was closer to that dog than most people are with their wives and children. I mean, we were inseparable.”

But, it wasn’t all emotion, loyalty, and dedication. It was indescribable, melded skills. Bruiser was a “scout” dog. He had graduated with high honors, even impressing his hard-nosed Marine dog trainers. Flannelly and Bruiser had trained together to communicate with rudimentary body language that the average person cannot see, much less, interpret. Bruiser had an arsenal of body language which Flannelly keenly watched in order to keep his entire platoon safe while out in the jungles and bush country. Bruiser’s sense of smell was 1,000

times more sensitive than humans. With wind conditions, he could sniff-out enemies in the bush up to 1,000 yards away (that’s the equivalent of 10 football fields end-toend). That 1,000-yard smell which Bruiser possessed is far enough to keep an enemy from firing their weapons. This can keep an entire U. S. Marine platoon from being completely wiped out from enemy ambush. But Bruiser had other lifesaving talents. He was able to not only smell human scent at a great distance, but he was also able to detect “trip wires” that could set off booby-traps that were rigged to trigger large deadly explosions by the enemy.

Amazingly, just the subtle sound of wind blowing over a trip wire could be detected by Bruiser’s keen sense of hearing, as well as smell. Dogs can detect a higher frequency of sound which humans cannot. His nose could even smell land mines and other booby traps or just ‘sense’ their presence, in the same phenomenal way that civilian Service Dogs can sense an impending seizure before it happens to their master. It is an uncanny ability in dogs which still baffles scientists today. Because of these working skills between Bruiser and his handler, Flannelly, both would have the world’s most dangerous job of “walking point,” which means they

Despite the horrific noise, explosions, and bloodshed, Bruiser stood on all fours, firmly planted beside his wounded master. Despite all animal instincts for survival; despite all inherent feelings to run away – Bruiser over-rode his own self-worth. He stood, unmoving, unconquered, his four paws firmly rooted on a ground that vibrated beneath him with violent ear-deafening explosions. He would not leave his master.

Heroic Dogs Cont. from Page 2

In September of 1969, 12 miles south of Da Nang, Bruiser and Flannelly would lead their Marine platoon through enemy-controlled territory. It was brutally hot and faces were awash with their own sweat. Flannelly recalls the moment: “But all of a sudden, Bruiser just stopped dead in his tracks. His nose was up, his ears were twitching.” The dog was giving body commands to Flannelly towards a specific location. Flannelly reacted. “And I noticed the movement in the bush. I had to make a decision and I chose to fire. All hell broke out! It suddenly was like 4th of July!” The entire U. S. Marine platoon was engulfed in full enemy battle! As Flannelly remembers: “Automatic weapons were being fired, hand grenades, rockets being fired!”

In the midst of confusion and battle, Flannelly seemed stunned, almost as if immersed in a slowmotion dream-state. He couldn’t believe what was happening to him. “I looked down and thought my arm was blown off. My whole side was blown open. I could actually watch my left lung filling up-and-

down and then slowly deflate.” (“War Dogs” video, Jeffrey P. Bennett, producer, 1999.)

Flannelly recounts a spectacular moment of valor and unspeakable courage. “Bruiser was just standing next to me. Just looking at me. He had a very sad look in his eyes. He knew we were in over our heads.” To Bruiser’s keen mind and training, instincts told him his master was seriously injured. Animal behaviorists know that dogs see their masters or owners in deeplyentrenched emotions. They are pack animals; they view their masters as one would their “mommy” or “daddy.”

Flannelly collapsed, hitting the ground abruptly, like a marionette doll whose strings overhead were suddenly cut. The smoke and dust was thick everywhere. Noise and screaming filled the surreal air. Bruiser was now crawling towards Flannelly’s fallen form. The dog

Country Sensation Lee Brice Takes Stage on March 5th - Grammy nominee and double Academy of Country Music Award winner, Lee Brice performs for one-night only at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE) on Thursday,

placed his body over Flannelly, shielding him from enemy fire. Helpless, Flannelly spoke of this death scene: “I didn’t want him to be there. I didn’t want him to have to see me die.” (At this point, Flannelly breaks down and sobs before he continues telling what happened next.) “I told him, ‘Bruiser, go!!’ -- but he refused to leave me.” Incredibly, the trained German Shepherd refuses to take a direct order. “It was very hard because every time I spoke, I kept spitting up blood.”

Again, Flannelly shouts even louder: “BRUISER, GO!!” But something deep in the recesses of the dog’s instincts keeps him close to Flannelly. Even though Bruiser smells impending death, and though he was keenly trained to obey all commands – this one command to abandon Flannelly . . . is flagrantly ignored. Bruiser continues shielding Flannelly’s severelyinjured body, nudging the Marine’s arms and hands as if the dog is trying to tell his master something.

Then, a most unexpected and shocking ordeal began to unfold. Ordered, again, to leave his master’s fallen body, Bruiser instead keeps nudging Flannelly’s hands and arms. Flannelly, finally understands.

He grabs the dog’s harness and Bruiser, with great labor and strength, begins to slowly drag Flannelly’s body to safety. Each

time Flannelly grows fatigued and lets loose, Bruiser tries to bite into his uniform to continue dragging him. “He reached down and tried to bite into my uniform on my shoulder. I grabbed onto the body harness that the dogs wore. And he dragged me back. I’m not sure how far it was. But it seemed forever.” With a ferocious exchange of weapon fire, Bruiser went beyond his normal range of physical strength. Flannelly was shocked: “I don’t know where he got the strength! Well, he was dragging me! He was determined to get me outta there! His loyalty was immeasurable. I owe my life to that dog!” (Jeffrey P. Bennett “War Dogs,” video, Ibid.)

Throughout all the smoke, the dust, the chaos, and the death scene all about him, Flannelly was finally dragged to safety amongst his fellow Marines. Dogs such as Bruiser became so effective at saving lives that requests poured in from other platoons, all requesting K9 units.

Later in the hospital, John Flannelly was ordered to return back to the States. Flannelly had other plans, “I’m not going anywhere – till I see Bruiser again! I have to see him!” (Flannelly breaks down at this point

San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones pointed out in her second annual Stae of the City Address that San Marcos is quickly taking on every appearance of becomeing a New Medical Hub for North San Diego County.

She pointed out that Kaiser Permanente will build and open a new hospital and the Scripps HealthCare Clinic provides another dimension in the area of medical service and treatment.

“Kaiser Permanente received approval to construct a new hospital right here in San Marcos.”

Kaiser will break ground on the hospital later this year, Jones said in the speech, presented at Cal State San Marcos. The new hospital will include 206 beds, an emergency room, labor and delivery facilities

and robotic surgery technology, and will employ about 500 people.

The new hospital, long envisioned for the city, will be built on the 38acre parcel that houses its existing facilities on Craven Road, near Cal State San Marcos, City Manger Jack Griffin said. For the city, which prides itself on being an education hub, with several universities and colleges, the new healthcare facilities could make it a healthcare center for North County, as well. Jones allso reported that last week ripps Health signed an agreement for 14,000 square feet of space for a primary care clinic in the newly opened university extension building, and expects to open that facility a year from now, in spring of 2021.

“The health business base is an important part of a thriving community,” Jones said. Oceanside Has Big Plans for Water

Plans are afoot for the city of Oceanside to have its citizens drinking recycled water by 2022.

These are part of the plans the city has to make potable recycled water a major element in its overall water supply.

HE’S BACK!

Yes, the one and only Friedrick Gomez is back. He has this week’s cover story and if you can read it without your eyes welling up with tears, you’re a stronger person than me.

Friedrick’s passion and humanity are on full display as he wrote this beautiful cover story.

As most of you know, Friedrich lost a very dear friend who passed away recently and he’s been in mourning. He still mourns ... probably will for some time . . . but each day he improves a little. We’ve spent some time with him and it is good to see our old friend making progress in returning to his rich and rewarding life. Welcome back,

I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a whole new wardrobe. For years my wardrobe has consisted largely of tennis shorts, polo shirt, Birkenstock sandals. That was both formal wear and casual wear. I decided it was time to buy (a) long pants, (b) a sport jacket or two, (c) at least one pair of new shoes, (d) several pair of socks to go with the new shoes, and, (e) two or three short sleeve shirts. I was prepared to spend $1000, maybe $1200, maybe even $1500. Clever lad that I am I first consulted my trusty computer and sought out stores that carried the shoes I was interested in, black and brown tasseled loafers. Penny's and Macy's had them. Or so the computer said.

Off to Westfield Shopping Plaza with my ex-wife Mary.

Arrived at Penny's, checked out the shoe department. Not one sales person in sight. Walked up and down the shoe rack rows - did not see the

Oceanside is targeting at least 30% of its future water supply coming by way of recycled water.

The $67 million project will make the city less reliant on imported water and less vulnerable to natural disasters such as earthquakes and droughts. Also, recycling has the environmental benefit of using less energy than transporting fresh water hundreds of miles from Northern California and the Colorado River.

The Pure Water Oceanside system will use advanced technology to filter up to 5 million gallons a day and inject it through wells into the Mission Basin aquifer. The water will then flow through the aquifer more than a mile to the city’s production wells where, further filtered by several months underground, the water will be pumped out and treated more before it’s added to the local supply. Metropolitan Water District, the Los Angeles-based agency that supplies imported water to 19 million Southern California residents, also supports the Oceanside project.

Together, Metropolitan and the County Water Authority are expected to fund $25 million of the Oceanside project’s operating costs over the next 15 years. The city is pursuing grants and loans to further subsidize the project. Escondido, Camp Pendleton and several North County water districts shoes I wanted. Moved over to the Men's Wear department. Found a lovely dark blue blazer - needed to see if they had it in my size and, if not, did they have a tailor to alter it? Nary a soul available to inquire. Saw a number of other sports jackets that looked like possibilities. Same with sports shirts. Still, no one to assist me. Fed up, I left that department; stopped and got three samples of men's cologne from a different department to take home with me. Mary found a purse she liked. $69, discounted to $20. Pretty good buy. I bought it for her. Before we left the house she said, "I've nae money." Sez me, "You don't need any. You've got the daddy. I'll buy you whatever you need and want."

(Mary is legally not able to access her bank account. I'm her court appointed conservator and have to take care of all her finances). Net sale to Penny's? $20. They lost several hundred, perhaps a thousand dollars in sales from me. I won't be back. Hopped in the car and drove to the other end of the shopping center to visit Macy's (too far too just walk. I have a bad back and long walks become difficult for me).

ful. What a change! And they, too, had great discount sales.

Went to the shoe department and while the computer said they had the shoes I wanted they were out of stock. But they ordered them for me. Bought two pair of loafers. About $150. Saw a number of sport coats that looked good, as well as slacks and sport shirts. But I was tired and decided to call it a day and head home.

Tomorrow? I'll head right back to Macy's and finish buying my new wardrobe. I'm wondering if Penny's will go the way of Sears and have to close a number of stores. If the lack of service is any indicator I'm betting they will not survive. Once I finish my shopping, hopefully by tomorrow, I will have completed my wardrobe (and shopping) for another half century.

Heroic Dogs Cont. from Page 3 and sobs in his hospital bed). “I gotta hug him. I gotta hold him. I gotta thank him.” Considering logistics and military bureaucracy, it was not an easy request. But then, Flannelly, was no ordinary U. S. Marine. He knew loyalty, love, and military camaraderie. He wasn’t going anywhere, come hell or high water, before seeing the dog who gave him back his life.

The day finally came for the reunion of two heroic U. S. Marines. “I was still dazed from the medication. But, he just came up from the bottom of the bed and slowly crawled all the way up, right up (Flannelly sobs a little) and gently puts his head on my shoulder and started licking my face.” (At this point, Flannelly begins crying softly.) “I was so happy to see him.” Dog handlers, like Flannelly, are trained to talk to their dogs, just as humans talk to each other. Out in the jungles of Vietnam, they often hold and hug their dogs no differently than family members. Just as these dogs understand human words that come in the form of commands, so they also seem to sense emotions, such as love, pain, and sadness in human beings. At the hospital, Bruiser sensed with

Letters to the Editor Cont. from Page 3

his eyes and ears and instincts that Flannelly was still hurt and injured, physically and emotionally. Bruiser softly whimpered as if crying, and gently placed his large head on Flannelly’s chest. “I just hugged him, and cried. I didn’t know what to say. How do you thank somebody . . . for saving your life?” It was the last time they would see each other. John Flannelly, United States Marine, never forgot of his heroic dog, Bruiser. “It’s extremely hard for me not to know what happened to Bruiser. It’s almost as if I had a brother who is missing in action.” (“War Dogs, The Untold Story,” Discovery Channel, 1998, by Jeffrey P. Bennett.)

These dogs were so effective in the war that the Viet Cong put a price on the head of both the dog and handler. Viet Cong were rewarded for bringing in the patch insignia of a dog handler. Or the ear of a scout dog. In any ambush, the Viet Cong would make deadly sure that they would be close enough to snipe both the dog and handler before targeting the others in a firefight. As SPC Charlie Cargo, of the 48th Scout Dog Platoon, said: “Ninety nine and nine percent of the time he (the dog handler) and the dog are the first ones that are going to get fired at.” SPC Carl Dobbins, of the 39th Scout Dog Platoon, matched up perfectly with his dog, Toro. The key to success is matching handlers with dogs that are suited to each

However, time would, miraculously, transform this most unlikely pair into one of the Marine Corps’ most effective war-dog teams.

Dobbins and Toro completed their vigorous and intensive training together, learning verbal commands, subtle body language, secret gestures. Danger, for example, was

Soon after, Dobbins received his orders and, as fate would have it, his partnered-dog would be the German Shepherd he most feared – by the name of Toro! And Dobbins wanted no part of him. “Man you gotta be kidding!! I don’t want that dog!!” Dobbins shouted at the top of his lungs. And he meant every syllable.

She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude."

other’s personalities. But it didn’t start out that way with Dobbins and Toro. Carl Dobbins was a cocky 19-year-old draftee from North Carolina and he was, at first, a most unwilling participant. He had already been to the kennels to look over the dogs, one of which would be assigned to him. His eyes quickly fell upon a German Shepherd named Toro. Toro appeared mean and aggressive in guarding his kennel territory and charged the chain link fence Dobbins was looking through. Dobbins quickly jumped back as Toro lunged and clamped his ferocious teeth on the fence, his canines fastened like steel tongs, biting the metal barrier. “I sure pity the sucker that gets that dog!” Dobbins said out loud, still keeping his distance.

signaled by a silent visual cue from the dog known as “An Alert.” Training continued onward, both learning to drop out of helicopters with attached ropes, even parachuting, individually, as well as conquering a most challenging obstacle course. Through it all, they were now among the U. S. Marine’s elite fighting teams. And their affection, devotion, and love for each other grew to enormous heights. Dobbins, the cocky kid who grew up in America’s South as somewhat of a loner in life had, unexpectedly, found his other half in Toro who, since he was a pup in Canoga Park, California, was also a maverick.

In September of 1966, Dobbins and Toro were dropped by helicopter to help save a platoon being decimated by sniper fire. The deadly Viet Cong sniper could not be detected yet he, one-by-one, was picking off U. S. Marines. The platoon was hunkered down when Dobbins and Toro came in from the rear. It was overly-humid and the sweat burned the eyes of the Marines as they continually blinked trying to locate the area of gunfire. Dobbins sat down with Toro and, as dog handlers are trained, he spoke to Toro as if he were a human being. Dobbins remembers: “I sorta got Toro over and I talked to him, petting him at the same time. I asked him, ‘Where is he? What’ya see, Toro? Search

for him, boy.’”

Toro would not disappoint.

The dog was tops in his class. He was now 100% bona fide U. S. Marine Corps War Dog – and he would prove it. He had an arsenal of skills, and he was ready to display them.

Fellow Marines looked, hopefully, in the direction of Dobbins and Toro. Those two were their only hope of getting out of there alive. Their numbers had already been tragically reduced. Toro suddenly began his regimen of “alerts” communicating them to Dobbins. Dobbins noticed Toro’s nose, tail, and head movement, then, Toro froze after communicating silently – his body was now rigid, pointing like a weather vane to a precise area of brush. Dobbins reacted with blind faith. “I never saw the sniper till I shot him,” Dobbins says, still petting and hugging his dog, Toro. “If they (the platoon) didn’t have this dog, they’d probably have lost 10 or 12 men before they found the sniper. So, our dog team saved several peoples’ lives in just that one instance.” Dobbins now gets choked up with emotion. He pauses. Looks down in momentary silence. Then he lifts his head and completes his thoughts: “Without Toro . . . there’s no way I’d have made it back to the States. I’d probably not made it 3 months without Toro.” (Jeffrey P. Bennett, “War Dogs” 1999 video, Ibid.) When his one-year tour of duty was completed in Vietnam, Carl Dobbins was shipped back to the United States. Toro, remained behind. And then returned, momentarily, to his kennel. At the kennel, Toro is standing, ears pricked, sniffing the air, as if trying to locate his lost Marine buddy and friend, Carl Dobbins. Finally, he lies down and slowly places his large head on the ground. His barking has ceased. His eyes seem focused on nothing in particular. Dog handlers say that to Toro, his basic dog emotions tell him that he “lost his Daddy. That’s how these dogs see and feel about their companions. They don’t understand why they are abandoned. They don’t comprehend why he does not come back to get him.”

Toro continues lying on the dirt ground. His eyes now seem droopy, perhaps sad. He still seems not focused on any particular object . . . as if he were lost. As if he were somewhere else. Perhaps dreaming of his daddy, Carl Dobbins. SPC Greg Blackwell always wanted to be a veterinarian and he made plans to become one. But he admits that had he known what would

Top of Agenda: Homelessness

In his State of the State address, Governor Newsom made homelessness a top priority. He also noted that California is the world’s fifthlargest economy, the richest state in the richest nation, but with massive poverty in our midst. The disgraceful evidence of that poverty can be seen in homeless people on our streets with encampments stretching from Mexico to Oregon.

I applaud the Governor for taking on this issue. Over the years, I have fought for improved access to treatment for those with mental illness and substance use disorders, health care and shelter. And as the Governor stated, we need better legal tools to allow governments, health providers and law enforcement to more effectively help people get treatment. Unfortunately, some individuals are incapable of accepting help to get off the streets. That’s why my legislation allowing local governments, loved-ones and service providers to ask courts to compel those needing treatment into community-based outpatient care was signed into law in 2016. The Governor also mentioned that more housing is critical. Unfortunately, well-intentioned laws have been used by special

interests, blocking new projects, while rent control has discouraged construction. Government mandates have driven costs through the roof, making some low-cost housing unaffordable. Unnecessary policies blocking new housing must be changed. All levels of government must come together to address homelessness. Red tape should be cut, and using funding with intentionality is critical to achieving results. Accountability is a must, but arguing over past mistakes is pointless. It’s time we look forward to address the interrelated problems of homelessness, mental health and substance abuse, one person, one family at a time. We can agree on the problems, but solutions will be a subject of intense debate. This year, I’m looking forward to working with the Governor to address these critical issues.

Neighborhood Reinvestment Program

One of the hardest, but most rewarding parts about being a San Diego County Supervisor is being able to help out many groups in our community. Through the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program, we are able to fund nonprofit organizations who provide essential services to citizens of San Diego County. Reinvesting taxpayer money in worthwhile organizations is a benefit to the citizens and communities of North County. Although there are many wonderful programs in our region, we wanted to highlight some for their outstanding work.

The Carlsbad Fire Department Foundation is a wonderful group that assists the residents in Carlsbad. We were able to allocate $17,875 towards the purchase of the Stop the Bleeding Kits which assist emergency personnel with on-site accidents and other incidents in Carlsbad.

Another wonderful organization that we all know, and love is the Valley Center Western Days, Inc. Established in 1950, Valley Center Western Days has become a staple for the community. The familyfriendly, community-wide celebration will be held this year on May

23. By providing $15,000 this will help with the purchase of signage, stage, audio system and many other essential items. I encourage everyone to come out for the 70th annual, later this year!

One of the most important groups in our County is the San Diego Food Bank. The Food bank provides nutritious food to people in need, advocate for the hungry, and educate the public about hungerrelated issues. One of the biggest items needed at the Food Bank was a large-scale refrigerator for the North County Food bank. Through our allocation, they will now be able to purchase this much-needed item. There are many more wonderful organizations throughout San Diego County that help in the community. We want to hear from you, so please contact my office, or visit my website to learn more and see if you may qualify for the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program. Supervisor Jim Desmond

someday be required of him regarding these courageous war dogs, he would never have volunteered his medical training. When the Vietnam War was winding down, these noble four-footed heroes would, for the most part, not be allowed to return home to the States. They were now classified as “surplus equipment” by the military. Also, the risk of disease was a military concern. Many war dogs would have to be euthanized (put to death) because of possible contagious health problems if brought back. “I was told that the World Health Association had passed a new law: No animals in Vietnam can come out,” Blackwell recalls. “It wasn’t accurate. The World Health Association never passed that law. But, that’s what we were told. Veterinarians in Vietnam were given only two options: the dogs could be transferred to the South Vietnamese Army, or the dogs would have to be euthanized.” (“War Dogs” video, Jeffrey P. Bennett, Ibid.) Only a precious few returned to the United States, but not to civilian life.

In the case of Booga Bear, a big, lovable Labrador retriever, who served as a life-saving military scout dog, his options dwindled from two to one. The South Vietnamese Army had refused to take him because he was black in color. Since the South Vietnamese believed that a black dog was bad luck, the black Labrador retriever was left with only one option. Veterinarian, Greg Blackwell, was ordered to have the dog euthanized. This was the part of his military service which he hated most. As he previously stated, had he known beforehand of his expected duties during these last days – he would have declined to serve in the first place.

Holding a lethal-injection syringe in his hand, and petting the Labrador retriever, Blackwell attempts to calm the dog gently. “You try to have the dog’s last moments to be peaceful. The drugs you inject them with are very quick. You want to be able to hit the vein on the first try.”

As usual, Blackwell’s eyes well up with tears. As a military man, himself, he knew in his own heart and soul that this was no ordinary dog. This dog had saved countless fellow U. S. Marines. In addition to all that, Blackwell had long been a dog-lover, having grown up with dogs most of his life. And if that were not enough, veterinarian SPC Greg Blackwell personally knew Booga Bear, the gentle-loving heroic black Labrador. “I had gotten to know the dog because he had stayed at my kennels. This dog cared nothing for himself – he just wanted to be working and saving U. S. military lives.” As Blackwell spoke, Booga Bear

just looked up at him, gently, with big trusting eyes. Booga Bear’s eyes now locked onto Blackwell’s. And that was it.

Finally, at the last moment . . . Blackwell refused to do it. He placed aside the lethal syringe and fell forward, hugging the Labrador retriever, embracing him, talking to him, petting him, and reassuring him that he was safe.

One week later, Greg Blackwell discovered a loophole. He decided to send Booga Bear to work at the American Embassy in Saigon. And he did. And Booga Bear became a most welcomed member of the diplomatic team, guarding and watching over them as he was trained to do for others.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

The King of Defense Attorneys

Today there are dozens of top defense attorneys working the courts throughout the nation, but there’s little doubt most bow to the dean of lawyers for the defense: Clarence Seward Darrow.

In April of 1975, the North Vietnamese Army captured Saigon. Blackwell remembers watching the ordeal unfold “live” on television. “And I remember in 1975 watching that Embassy fall and the American rescue helicopters on top of the Embassy building rooftop and I remember saying ‘I hope to God somebody got that dog out.’” (Discovery Channel, Jeffrey P. Bennett, “War Dogs” 1998, Ibid.)

Often times, it is the ‘unknowns’ in life that can leave lasting emotional scars. Such as the unknown fate of Booga Bear and others who were left behind after the Vietnam War. A most tragic unknown is the fact that these unheralded, forgotten dogs served our country in the highest possible fashion. They laid down their own precious lives to protect us and they did it willingly, despite their own animal instincts for self-preservation and survival. Many military men, today, will always remember and cherish their memories of these great warrior dogs. Like SGT Spencer Dixon, of the 43rd Scout Dog Platoon: “I got a Purple Heart and other medals. But, they didn’t give any to my dog. He died protecting us. All those medals . . . they gave to me. But it was for what the dog did!”

Regarding military veterinarian, SPC Greg Blackwell, most of the dogs he was ordered to put to death were German Shepherds. German Shepherds were the backbone of the K9 units by sheer majority numbers in all four U. S. military branches. Euthanizing these valiant, fourfooted military heroes would, forever, cripple veterinarian, Blackwell, with an indeliblyscarred psyche. Blackwell expresses his torment: “I cannot look at a German Shepherd today without seeing the eyes and souls of all those German Shepherds.” Another veterinarian made the following observation: “I’m a veterinarian. It’s your choice to stay in the room while your dog gets put down. I always hope you stay. Because, they look for you when you leave.”

Darrow argued emotion is necessary for the decisions people make. When someone tries to go against a certain forbidden law or custom, the accused should feel a sense of revulsion. Darrow concluded that neither Leopold nor Loeb had a working emotional system as they did not feel “revolted.” During the trial, the newspapers claimed that Darrow was presenting a "million-dollar defense" for the two wealthy families. Many ordinary Americans were angered at his apparent greed. He had the two families issue a statement insisting that there would be no large legal fees and that compensation would be determined by the Chicago Bar Association.

After trial, Darrow suggested $200,000 would be reasonable. After lengthy negotiations with the defendants' families, he ended up, after expenses, getting $30,000, worth more than $380,000 in today’s money. In 1925, Darrow defended school teacher John T. Scopes in the State of Tennessee v. Scopes trial, probably his most famous trial. It often is referred to as the "Scopes Monkey Trial," a title popularized by noted newspaperman H.L. Mencken of the Baltimore Sun.

Darrow was born April 18, 1857, in the small Ohio town and became famous in the early 20th century for his defense in highly publicized trials. Called a "sophisticated country lawyer,” Darrow's wit and eloquence made him one of the most prominent attorneys and civil libertarians in the nation.

Darrow defended high-profile clients in many famous trials, including teenage thrill killers Nathan Leopold, Jr., and Richard Loeb for murdering 14year-old Robert "Bobby" Franks in 1924. And teacher John T. Scopes in the 1925 Scopes "Monkey" Trial in which he opposed noted statesman, presidential candidate, and orator William Jennings Bryan.

Throughout his career, Darrow devoted himself to opposing the death penalty, which he felt to be in conflict with humanitarian progress. In more than 100 cases, Darrow only lost one murder case in Chicago. He became renowned for moving juries and even judges to tears with his eloquence. Chicago newspapers labeled the Leopold and Loeb case the "Trial of the Century."

The two teenagers made full confessions and took police on a hunt around Chicago to collect the evidence that would be used against them. The state's attorney told the press he had a "hanging case" for sure. Darrow stunned the prosecution when his clients plead guilty in order to avoid a vengeanceminded jury, placing the case before a judge.

Darrow's closing argument lasted 12 hours. He repeatedly stressed the ages of the “boys,” noting that "never had there been a case in Chicago where on a plea of guilty a boy under 21 had been sentenced to death." Darrow succeeded with Judge Caverly sentenced Leopold and Loeb to life in prison plus 99 years.

The trial, which was deliberately staged to bring publicity to the question of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, pitted Darrow once again against William Jennings Bryan. The question tested Tennessee's newly passed Butler Act, which forbade the teaching of Evolution in any state-funded educational establishment. More broadly, it outlawed the teaching of "any theory that denies the story of the “Divine Creation” as taught in the Bible.

During the trial, Darrow requested that Bryan be called to the stand as an expert witness on the Bible. Over the other prosecutor's objection, Bryan agreed. The popular media at the time portrayed Darrow’s grilling of Bryan as the deciding factor that turned public opinion in favor the teacher Scopes. After about two hours, Judge John T. Raulston cut the Darrow’s questioning short and on the following morning ordered the whole session be expunged from the record, ruling Bryan’s testimony that “every word in the Bible was to be believed” and had no bearing on whether Scopes was guilty of teaching the controversial subject. Scopes was found guilty and ordered to pay the minimum fine of $100. A year later, the Tennessee Supreme Court reversed Raulston’s decision on a procedural technicality -- not on constitutional grounds, as Darrow had hoped. The Tennessee high court dismissed the case, commenting “… nothing is to be gained by prolonging the life of this bizarre case."

The event led to a change in public sentiment and became popularized in a play based loosely on the trial, and the 1960 film “Inherit the Wind,” with Spencer Tracy and Fredric March. Today, Clarence Darrow is remembered for his reputation as a fierce litigator and is generally regarded as one of the greatest criminal defense lawyers in American history. Darrow died on March 13, 1938, of pulmonary heart disease, and is buried in Chicago.

Regarding Vietnam War Dogs – they sadly remain America’s most forgotten heroes. But, things are slowly beginning to change.

On June 10, 2006, a U. S. War Dog Memorial was officially dedicated; its location is placed so that it is shown guarding the gateway to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey. The U. S. War Dog Memorial – even in stone – still seems to guard their human counterparts also etched in stone just as they did in combat. The bronze statue is emotionally powerful for Vietnam Veterans today who visit it: the sculpture shows a kneeling Vietnam War soldier and his dog, set on a black granite base. The message is clear: “The U. S. War Dogs Memorial, while directly representing the War Dog Teams of the Vietnam War, honors all our nation’s war dogs and their handlers – past, present, and future.” For our readers of THE PAPER who wish to learn more about these extraordinary war dogs, you may wish to purchase the video or DVD: “War Dogs, America’s Forgotten Heroes,” by Jeffrey P. Bennett, producer, 1999. A most special gesture of gratitude must be extended to Mr. Jeffrey P. Bennett, CEO of Nature’s Recipe Pet Foods, for his diligence, loyalty, and unswerving commitment in producing televised

documentaries (Discovery Channel) as well as videos, all of which preserves and promotes the living legacy of these most magnificent War Dogs. I strongly advocate purchasing the aforementioned video via Amazon or other viable video source. Thank you, Mr. Bennett, for honoring us veterans with a slice of indispensable history.

Old Fishing Reels are Reeling in Big Interest - Old saltwater and freshwater fishing tackle is worth a lot of money to collectors. Sometimes a colorful old lure or reel’s fishing-themed packaging and boxes are worth more than the actual product that was sold inside. Paul Berinson, a professional tackle collector and tackle company owner in Temecula, is a 20-year member of the Old Reel Collector’s Association (ORCA). He will be the guest speaker at the March 13 meeting of the Senior Anglers of Escondido. ORCA is a non-profit organization started in 1990 with the purpose of collecting and distributing historical and technical data regarding old fishing reels and their development, inventors, and manufacturers. Most saltwater anglers know that one of the most popular reel manufacturers, Penn Reels, is hard to identify as to the time period of manufacture. Since 1932, the top quality brand hasn’t used serial numbers on its reels that would help establish its age. Berinson invites attendees to the club meeting to bring their old Penn Reels and he will help establish time periods and what they may be worth. The club’s meetings are held the second Friday of each month, open to all anglers age 50 and

above, at the Park Avenue Community Center, 210 Park Ave., Escondido, 92025. Meetings start at 9:30 a.m. Members of the club enjoy fishing tournaments and charters, picnics, RV camping, and community service to help kids go fishing.

Anxieties are debris, so are worries and cares, other words used in various Bible translations. Obstacles, barriers. Things that get in the way of our relationship with God.

Sheba is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 6-1/2 year old, 45 pound, female, Shepherd mix.

While she might be considered middle aged, Sheba is an active little lady who is going to want plenty of attention from her new family. She’ll do almost anything for treats. Sheba was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the Friends of County Animal Shelters (FOCAS) program. The $145 adoption fee for Sheba includes medical exams, vaccinations, spay, and registered microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.

Jasper is a 6-year-old cat looking for a new home. He is a sweetheart who is both affectionate and playful. Jasper is diabetic, so he will need a new family who is comfortable giving him insulin. Jasper’s ideal home would be one with no other pets (he prefers to be the king of the castle), and one with adults and older children. If you’re looking for a snuggle buddy, come and adopt Jasper today! His adoption fee includes his neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from PetFirst. Jasper is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (619) 299-7012.

We dump our trash in a community dumpster down the way from our house. We often load the bag in the car when we are going somewhere. So, on a recent Sunday, on the way to church, as I tossed a bag into the dumpster, I thought how dumping the trash and going to church had some similarities. But before we go too far, we need a better word for trash. How about “debris?” Its French origin alone makes it a nicer word. And, in one meaning, it is the things that get in our way, obstacles and barriers.

So the debris is in the dumpster, we’re off to church, and a scripture comes to me: “casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you,” I Peter 5:7.

Just as we toss debris into the dumpster, we can “cast,” like a fisherman, or “toss” our worries, anxieties, cares on Jesus. He can handle the load. He welcomes the opportunity to take your load off your shoulders.

Because, the verse ends, “he cares for you.” We make a lot of our own trouble, create our own debris, but God doesn’t expect us to resolve it all by ourselves. He cares. He cares for you. In Matthew 11:28, Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (The Message). He provides a place to dispose of our debris. Of obstacles and barriers that get in the way of life’s journey. He cares for you.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,

I had the opportunity to talk with Mission Middle School students for their career day. As you might imagine, they asked a lot of questions about what it is like being Mayor. Or questions like what do you do. Well I thought they were good questions and maybe some “grownups” might want an answer to them as well.

The day to day activities of the city are executed by the city staff and they are led by the City Manager. The council provides policy guidance to the city staff. How the council knows what guidance to provide is always the issue. Because what the council needs to do is reflect the will of the people. That’s a really important point. I can’t speak for the other council members, but I attend almost everything I’m invited to and during those events I ask the question where should we be going and listen to the answer. I also welcome input via email and in many cases personal meetings. I would encourage you to send me and your council representative your input. It’s important!! By the way I asked the students to give me a one page paper on what the future Escondido should look like. I’ll let you know.

While such trepidations were well justified in the “buggy” earlier days of Wind10, our recent experience with today’s latest version of Win10 is close enough to Win7 in appearance and function to make the upgrade transition fairly painless for most.

What’s up with Windows 10?

Roughly 75% of our business and home customers are using Windows 10 on a daily basis. Over 90% of the notebook and desktop PCs we sold or serviced in the past three months are running the Windows 10 OS (operating system). In that time we have updated or loaded over 400 notebook and desktop PCs with the latest version of Windows 10 (build1909). Most customers upgrading to Win10 from Win7/8 also have us save their files, applications and settings. Many of our business and home customer have been less than

There are some differences between Win7 and Win10 and Win10 does offer some advantages. A fairly thorough reading on the advanced features offered by Win10 can be found in a January 2020 article by Michael Muchmore. Just type “18 reasons you should upgrade to Windows 10” into your search engine. If you have not yet upgraded to Win 10 this article may help ease your concerns about the transition. If you are already using Win10 the article may point to features you were not aware existed in Win10. Some of these “features” listed as part of Win10 have always been available as downloads to Win 7/8 users and some Win10 features, like access to the Windows store, may be of dubious value but features like improved security and Cortana can have real value.

purchase of a Win10 home ($140) or Pro ($200). It’s just not true. Microsoft deliberately left a “back door” open so that users could still legally upgrade any existing Win7/8 PC to Win10 without having to purchase the Win10 OS. Microsoft has continued to allow this loophole because the rapid and universal adoption of Win10 and its replacement of the Win7/8 OS have been very important to Microsoft. Charging full price for the updates would have significantly slowed the adoption rate of Win10.
