Lying prone behind the sand bags, the Marines peered into the night. The Japanese attack was about to begin.
Only moments before, the Japanese had been spotted by a sergeant in charge of a Marine outpost. Now the jungle was quiet, except for the rain that had turned the ground into mud.
It would be a crucial battle this night of October 23, 1942 on Guadacanal. The Japanese had decided to build an air field on the island. As it was being constructed, the Marines of the 1st Division on August 7 had hit the beaches, but when they reached the airfield, they met no resistance. To avoid the naval shelling, the two thousand airfield workers had run far into the jungle. The Marines were now in control of the airfield, which they called Henderson Field, but the Japanese were determined to take it back. If they succeeded they would accomplish the purpose for building the airfield: to continue their conquest of the Pacific, then invade Australia and New Zealand.
To defend the airfield there were some nine hundred Marines of the 1st Battalion of the 7th Regiment, the battalion headed by Lieutenant Colonel Lewis “Chesty” Puller. Protecting their left flank was the 164th Army Infantry Regiment, most of them National Reservists from North Dakota.
They would be fighting some 3,000 Japanese infantry of a crack unit: the Sendai Division. From his command headquarters, the man heading the division, General Masao Maruyana, had boasted, “I intend to exterminate the enemy around the airfield in The Paper - 760.747.7119
John Basilone and his new bride,
one blow.” His confidence was based on the superb physical condition of his troops.
While training in Japan and carrying full combat gear, the division had marched 122 miles in three days, and the

last few miles had been done at double-time.
But, in addition to having what one Marine officer later stated was a “picture-perfect” example of a fixed military position, the Marines had the
strategic advantage of having a defense line along a ridge which declined gradually for about a hundred feet to a broad expanse of grassland that was ringed by the jungle.
Under the direction and supervision of Colonel

Puller, the Marines had cut down large swathes of the grassland with their machetes to give them a clear firing view, and had strung up double rows of barbed wire; in the rear , they had set up rows of mortars, all sighted on the expected points of attack; and along the whole defense line, which extended for about a mile, water-cooled, Browning .30-caliber machines guns were mounted every 150 yards.
Manning one of the machine guns was Sgt. John Basilone. He commanded a squad of twelve men and two gun emplacements, each emplacement with two machine guns. The squad was part of Company C, which was near the center of the defense perimeter.
Basilone, then twenty-six years old, was of average height but well-built, and a veteran soldier.
Born in Buffalo, New York, on November 4, 1916, he grew up in Raritan, New
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
Jersey. His father, Sal, was a tailor who had emigrated from Italy and his mother, Dora, was born in Raritan.
After Basilone graduated from eight grade, he quit school and at the age of 17, with signed papers from his parents, joined the peacetime Army. Following basic training, he was assigned to Company D of the 16th Infantry in Manila, the Philippines (the Filipino and government and U.S. government had close ties then) and there he became a champion boxer and given the nickname of “Manila John” by the men in his company.
In the Army, other traits besides his boxing prowess, became evident. He was by the force of his self-confidence and personality a natural leader. He also showed an exceptional mechanical talent, and became an expert with guns, particularly machine guns, and surprised enlisted men and officers with his ability to breakdown and re-assemble the numerous parts of the weapon blindfolded.

Conversation starts with the lady asking the man if he drinks. Lady: Do you drink? Man: Yes
Lady: How much a day?
Man: 3 six packs
Lady: How much per six pack Man: about $10.00
Lady: And how long have you been drinking?
Lady: If in 1 year you spend $10,800 not accounting for inflation, the past 15 years puts your spending at $162,000 correct? Man: Correct
Lady: Do you know that if you hadn't drank, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 15 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari? Man: Do you drink?
Man: Where's your Ferrari? in the Navy Now . .
Years ago, a young Navy Pilot was injured while ejecting from his A-4
When his time of enlistment was up, Basilone returned home. He took various jobs, all of which bored him. Meanwhile, there were rumors of war. If war did come, Basilone wanted to be where the action was. In July, 1940, he joined the Marine Corps and trained at Quantico, Virginia. Because of his leadership abilities and knowledge of machine guns, he quickly moved up the ranks, making Private First Class in August, 1940, Corporal in May, 1941 and Sergeant in January, 1942.
Basilone seems to have been a born soldier.
Those soldiery qualities would be tested beginning Friday night, October 23, 1942, on Guadacanal.
With his finger on the trigger of the machine gun, in the stillness of the night, Basilone waited for the order to fire.
For long moments, the jungle was quiet, then suddenly, the silence was shattered by voices. The Japanese were yelling taunts, which surprisingly were in English (a number of

Since he wasn't physically impaired, he remained on flight status and eventually became an Admiral. However, during his career he was always sensitive about his appearance.
One day the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Sergeant Major for his personal staff.
The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?"
The Master Chief answered, "Why, yes, Admiral. I couldn't help but notice that you are missing your starboard ear, so I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side."
the Japanese, particularly officers could speak English): “Blood for the Marines, you die!”
The Marines were quick to respond, “______you! Come on, you yellow ______!”
Again taunts. The Japanese wanted to say, “Roosevelt,” but because they weren’t able to say certain syllables, it came out, “Roozerover eat shit!” And “Babe Roo eat shit!”
The Marines hooted back, “Your grandmother eats shit! And so does the Emperor!”
Then came the roar of voices from the darkness of the jungle. “Banzai! Banzai!” And on they came.
Over the battalion phone circuit, Colonel Puller’s Virginia drawl resounded, “Commence fahring!”
The night exploded. The crack of rifles, the stutter of machine guns, the twang of mortars—a cacophony of

The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out of his office. The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, when asked this same question, answered, "Well yes, Sir, you seem to be short one ear." The Admiral threw him out as well.
The third interview was with the Marine Sergeant Major. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Master Chiefs put together.
The Admiral wanted this guy, but went ahead with the same question. "Do you notice anything different about me?" To his surprise , the Sergeant Major said, "Yes Sir. You wear contact lenses."
The Admiral was impressed and thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Marine. "And how would you know that?" the Admiral asked.

noises that almost drowned out the screaming Japanese who, with bayoneted rifles, charged, many of them covered head to heel in camouflaged leaves, in their crouched positions looking like rapidly moving bushes, the spent shells popping out of the guns, but like a river in flood, the Japanese kept coming, and then they ran into the knee-high rows of barbed wire, their charge slowed down as they struggled to maneuver through it, the next wave crowded into them, their bodies becoming an entangled mass.
The Marines kept blazing away. Someone was tapping Basilone’s shoulder. In the infernal din of battle, he could make out only two words, “Almost overrun.”
Basilone jumped to his feet and as fast as he could ran to his second section and there he found three of his men dead and, tended by a medic, two men badly wounded. One of the machine guns was demolished, the other was jammed.
He ran back to his pit, picked up a machine gun, shouted at two of his men to follow him, and as they headed for the other section, they ran into six Japanese who had infiltrated the line. Before the Japanese could react, the two other Marines, from hip level, fired their rifles. The Japanese crashed to the ground. In the gun pit, while two of his men loaded and began firing the machine gun he had carried, Basilone took hold of the jammed machine gun and began to take it apart.
In the darkness of the pit, Basilone moved his fingers over the machine parts. His fingers stopped, and then
slowly moved over a single part. The head spacing was out of line.
In a moment the machine gun was ready. Basilone set the gun on the tripod, and with one of his men feeding the ammo belt into the gun’s breech and clipping it into place, Basilone began firing, full trigger.
Less than twenty feet from the machine gun, the Japanese tumbled and fell.
By the time the fourth wave had charged, the machine guns were beginning to run out of ammo belts. Basilone rose from his gun pit and, with a pistol in hand, ran to the battalion supply dump, several hundred feet in back of the line.
Reaching the dump, he tore open ammo boxes, took out machine gun belts and hung them around his neck, then grabbed water cans and weapon parts and headed back, Loaded down in this way, he made several trips, distributing what he had to his men and others in his company. After several more waves of Japanese charged the defense perimeter, it was suddenly quiet. The Japanese had stopped their attack. It was past midnight.
During the lull, Basilone decided to deal with a problem. The barrels of the machine guns had become pink-hot. The high rate of fire had boiled away the water in the cooling jackets that were coiled around the barrel. But the water cans used to cool the guns had been punctured by shrapnel. Coming to his feet, Basilone began to urinate in the cooling jackets and ordered his men to do the same.
About 1:15 a.m., the Japanese attacked again, this time directly in front of Company C, Basilone’s company. The Marines opened up with machine guns, rifles and mortars. Within five minutes nearly all the attackers were dead.
When morning came, it revealed a scene of carnage that riveted even the most combat-hardened Marine. On the ground, Japanese bodies w e r e stacked two and three feet high, and on the b a r b e d wire, the mound of corpses were three and four feet deep— in the last charges, the Japanese had used the bodies of their comrades as bridges over the wire. Covered with blue-colored flies, the corpses had putrefied. The stink permeated much of the area.
Basilone ordered his men to remove some of the corpses from the wire to clear the line of fire.
By mid-afternoon, the Japanese were still attacking the Marine line. In the incessant firing, Basilone became like a man possessed. He ran and ducked along the line, shooting infiltrators, rolling back and forth from one trouble spot to another, making sure the guns were operating, repositioning them, directing the line of firing, and when a Marine was killed or wounded, manning the gun himself.
During that second night, the Japanese—with a seemingly endless reservoir of men— kept charging. And the Marines kept firing.
Then a Marine yelled, “They’ve broken through!”
Colonel Puller hurriedly put in a call for reinforcements and the Army regiment was quickly brought in, divided into small groups and distributed along the Marine line. The reinforced defense perimeter held, and by the first streaks of dawn, the attacks were not as frequent or as intense. Later that morning, in ragged lines, the demoralized Japanese began to retreat.
They had failed to take Henderson Field.
February 7, 2013 - Page 3
In the three-day battle, nearly 2,000 Japanese were killed, and their total number of killed on the island was 23,000.
Japanese dead on Edson’s Ridge
The number of American casualties in the three-day battle are not recorded, but in the official history of the Marine Corp, the total 1st Marine Division casualties on Guadacanal were 605 killed and 1,278 wounded. Another 8,580 Marines came down with malaria.
The consequences of the American victory were farreaching. The Japanese would never again mount an offensive campaign in the Pacific. And looking back on the victory on Guadacanal, President Roosevelt called the heroic defense of Henderson Field “the turning point in the Pacific war.”
For the Marines, the successful defense of the field had immediate consequences. After 72 hours of combat, they could rest and, in leisure, eat their K-rations with its biscuits, which they called “dog bones.”
The division had further opportunities for rest while on their way to Australia; and when they reached Melbourne, they were greeted at the docks by hundreds of Australians; the day before the newspaper’s headline had read, “The Saviors of Australia are Arriving.” Thousands more cheered them the next day as the division marched down the main street of Melbourne. But in the weeks that followed, it was back to further training for the division, while the top Marine com‘A Marine’s Marine . . . ’ Cont. on Page 7

Imposters Attempt to Gain Entry to Escondido Homes
The Escondido Police Department is looking into complaints of imposter City of Escondido employees contacting homeowners. Some of the imposters have either a jacket or shirt that has something similar to a patch that represents Escondido Water or just Escondido.
The imposters have been going door-to-door and asking homeowners about water use, water quality, and insurance for the home owner’s water lines. The imposters have asked to come inside the homes and some of the homeowners have allowed it.
Once inside, the imposters have asked to test the water for analysis and have made other offers to sell product or get information for a “free drawing”. As far as EPD can tell, there has been no overt crime in any of the cases except for soliciting.
EPD would like to warn homeowners not to allow
any person you do not know into your home unless you expect them for an appointment or repair. If you are contacted by any person representing themselves as a local government employee or utility worker, you may ask for identification and contact information to verify their claim. The City of Escondido would like to let you know:
• City Utility Workers have city badges and wear city uniforms • All pipes from your water meter to your house are private • The City does not require insurance on those lines • Utility Workers drive white city vehicles with city logos and government license plates • Utility Workers will only enter private houses when the customer has contacted the Utilities department in advance. This situation is very rare. If anyone has additional information, has had a similar experience, or sees an imposter representing themselves as Water Department

In a press release by FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth, an Oceanside man by the name of Edward Jones Inzunza was arrested last Friday during a traffic stop on Thunder Drive and Lewis Street in Oceanside, near Landis Park.
Foxworth said Inzunza, 30, was arrested on suspicion of bank robbery for a Jan. 4 heist about 4:30 p.m. at Comerica Bank on El Camino Real near Hosp Way in Carlsbad.
The thief ordered a teller to give him money from the drawer. He kept one hand in his jacket pocket, leading bank employees to believe he may have had a gun tucked inside, according to federal court documents.
The robber stuffed the money — nearly $1,100 — in his pocket and left in an early

It was while the 5th Division was camped in Melbourne that Basilone learned he would receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. And on May 21, 1943, with the whole division standing at attention, the nation’s highest military award for valor was presented to Basilone,
After receiving the medal, he said, “Only parts of this medal belong to me. Pieces of it belong to the boys lying buried on the island.”
He returned to his regular duties, but then two months later, in July, 1943, Basilone learned that the Marine top brass had a special mission for him: to help sell war bonds.
A month later, having arrived in California, he headed to Camp Pendleton and while there he saw his brother George, who was a Marine in training. Soon after he

arrived at the camp, he received orders to report to Marine Headquarters in New York City, and there he was briefed on the upcoming bond tour. Basilone asked if, before he started the tour, he could get a pass for home, and that was immediately granted.
Seeing Basilone as he stepped off the train on September 19, 1943, the people in Raritan went crazy. They rushed about him and kept him trapped for nearly an hour, as his family and everyone he had ever known growing up crowded around him and embraced him, shook his hand, tousled his hair.
Then there was the parade, thirty thousand people, many of them from nearby cities and a long line of limousines filled with dignitaries, including the mayor, governor and senators. In the following months, with other decorated servicemen and a group of Hollywood actors, Basilone went on the war bond tour.

It was a whirlwind but successful tour. In one month alone, Basilone and the others toured ten states and sold more than nineteen billion dollars of war bonds.
When the tour ended, Basilone asked to be sent back overseas. His request was granted and he was ordered to report on January 17, 1944 to Camp Pendleton where he joined the newly formed 5th Marine Division, and where he was promoted to gunnery sergeant and put in charge of a platoon. And it was while he was in training with this division that he met Sgt. Lena Riggi, a reservist, stationed at Pendleton.
They soon fell in love and on July 10, 1944, they were married at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church in Oceanside.
A month later, Basilone was told that the 5th Marine Division would be shipping out, destination unknown.
He learned of that destination on February 19, 1944, as the convoy neared Iwo Jima. The island is relatively small,

only five miles long and about two miles wide. At the southern end of the island is Mount Suribachi, 555 feet high.
Though a flyspeck in the Pacific, the island was strategically important to both the Americans and the Japanese. By getting control of the island and its air fields, the Marines would put an end to Japanese attacks against American-held islands in the Pacific and using the same air fields would put the Japanese mainland within the range of U.S. bombers.
Prepared to take the island from the Japanese were three Marine Divisions—the 3rd, 4th and 5th—a total of about 66,000 men.
Defending the island were 22,000 Japanese, entrenched in thousands of gun positions that had been dug in sulfuric rock under the island’s black sand, all the positions connected by underground tunnels. ‘A Marine’s Marine . . .’ Cont. on Page 10

ing? In the store and on the phone?
We had enough dough to make pizzas for most of those in the store . . . but I had to make a fresh batch of new dough. That takes about 45 minutes.
What had happened was - Mr. Davis, you did that wonderful story about me and the restaurant and . . . Mr. Davis, you really have great readers! They came by and called in and said they had seen the story and all the nice things you said about us. It wasn’t till then that I knew you had done a story on us.
We managed to get most of the folks in the store taken care of but some of the folks with delivery orders had to wait an hour and a half! I was totally embarrassed and mortified.
The next morning the guy I fired came in for his check and I told him, ‘it’s not the money; we can make that up in future sales. It’s our reputation! People are going to think that’s how we do business! All these years of working and building a reputation and it’s destroyed overnight. The second thing is . . I feel like I let Mr. Davis down and embarrassed him. For him to go out of his way to do a nice story . . . and then I let him down with poor service? I just can’t have that. I hope I get a chance to make it up to those poor customers.”
I could readily imagine the pain that Adrian was going through. He often comes in at 6, 7am and works till 1011pm, 7 days a week. Cooking, building a reputation, then one careless and thoughtless employee puts him behind the 8-ball.
So, from one friend to another, if you were one of those kindly folks who either came by or called, and had to wait for an hour or an hour and a half . . . my apologies, as well as Adrian’s. Give him another chance. He’ll make good on it and take good care of you. (I eat there often and always get good food and service). The kid’s a winner! ••••• ‘Man About Town’ Cont. on Page 14
A Marine’s Marine . . .’ Cont. from Page 7
Two Marine divisions went in first, the 4th and 5th, with the 3rd in reserve. For the Marines on board the ships waiting their turn to board a landing craft, it was an amazing sight to see hundreds of the crafts surging toward the mile and a half long beach.
Basilone and his men were part of the fourth wave to hit the beach, and as they moved inland, they heard a long burst of machine gun fire a short distance ahead. They moved closer and saw a block-house built deeply in the sand. From its narrow aperture, low above the ground, protruded the snout of a Japanese heavy machine gun spewing out hundreds of rounds a minute.
Quickly, the men of Basilone’s machine gun sections—who he had trained, set up their weapons and began firing at the blockhouse.
As bullets slammed into the aperture, the Japanese gun was quiet. Basilone jumped to his feet, ran to the side of the block-house, heaved himself on top of it, crawled to the aperture, reached for his grenades and demolitions and as the Japanese began firing again, tossed them into the aperture.
There was silence, then as Basilone scrambled off the top of the block-house, muffled explosions sounded from inside the emplacement and black smoke belched from its aperture.
Moments later, Basilone led his men further inland. He had orders to take over the largest of the three Japanese airfields, now only a few hundred yards away.
But then Basilone and the others spotted an immobile Marine tank and there was a Marine in the turret waving at them and pointing to the sand.
The tank was trapped in a mine field. The Japanese had seen the tank and were beginning to ‘A Marine’s Marine . . .’ Cont. on Page 13

You’re Steve Sinovsky, Microsoft
executive in charge of operating system design. You brought Microsoft back from the Vista disaster with Win 7. You’re on track to someday succeed Steve Ballmer as Microsoft CEO. It’s mid-year 2012 and you’re months away from releasing Microsoft’s latest operating system, Win 8. Today you’re addressing Microsoft’s skeptical Board of Directors who aren’t convinced that replacing the highly successful Win 7 operating system with the radically different Win 8 is a winning strategy. Historically, Microsoft’s income has been tied to the sale of operating systems and Office suites for PCs. You point out that although Microsoft
Making California Thrive
Since 2000, California has lost 600,000 manufacturing jobs, while San Diego County has lost 33,533 manufacturing jobs.
Because manufacturing is a key engine of the economy, and provides good middle-class jobs and middle-class wages, I believe it is important for the private and public sectors to discuss solutions to promote manufacturing growth.
Next week in San Diego on February 14th, Assemblymember Toni Atkins and I will be cohosting an event: “Manufacturing in the Golden State: Making California Thrive.” I invite you to join us and the many economic development organizations that are partnering with us.
has over 90% of the PC operating system business, the growth of the PC market has slowed as users substitute mobile devices like smart phones, and tablets. “We must tap into those growing markets if we are to continue to grow and thrive. We’ve less than 3% of the smart phone market and will be releasing our first product into the highly competitive tablet market in the fourth quarter where Google and the Android operating system are our main competition.”
The new Win 8 will provide a common interface across our PCs, smart phones and tablets. We can leverage our near monopoly position in PC operating systems to gain user acceptance of Win 8 and greatly enhance sales opportunities for our Microsoft branded smart phones and tablets. Our strategy will be to force consumers to accept Win 8 by refusing to sell Win 7 licenses to all major PC manufacturers. By January 2013 consumers will find only Win 8 PCs in retail stores. They will have no choice but to accept it.”
“Absolutely not!” your face reddens as you pound the table emphatically, “our users must learn to operate their PCs like cell phones. From now on Microsoft’s motto shall be, let your fingers do the walking”
Windows 8 was released to the public on October 26th. Microsoft fired you (Steve Sinovski) on November 14th.
After three full months PC sales are down. Win 8’s market share is 2.5%. By contrast Win Vista’s market share after three months was 3.3% and Win 7’s was 8.2%. Microsoft is blaming PC manufacturers and PC manufacturers are blaming Windows 8.
Several members of the Board stir nervously. One member raises her hand “We’ve heard that PC focus group reaction has been largely negative to the new user interface. What happens if our customers don’t like it? We can’t afford another Vista fiasco.” Before you can respond another member chimes in. “Can’t we just give consumers a mouse and keyboard friendly Win 8 interface?”
This event will bring together a dynamic list of speakers for a bipartisan conversation. The event’s themes will explore issues related to free and fair trade, partnerships with labor, and regulatory reform options that could encourage economic growth in San Diego County and the state.
Our goal is to collaborate and develop a unified position on how to restore California’s manufacturing sector and to implement policies that will achieve this goal.
For more event information please contact my District Office at (760) 931-2455.

Here at The Computer Factory, all our new notebooks sell with Win 7. Of the first twenty-five new desktop PCs we built in January, twelve got Win XP and thirteen got Win 7. We had nine Win 8 PCs in for service in January. On five, we un-installed Win 8 and installed Win 7, two were returned to the store where they were purchased and two were hopeless.

‘A Marine’s Marine . . .’ Cont. from Page 10
Basilone moved around to the front of the tank and, with hand signals, guided the tank out of the field.
As the tank rumbled on, Basilone’s platoon continued its trek to the airfield. When they arrived there, Basilone had them set up on the edge of a crater. But he knew it was a vulnerable position.
Leaving a corporal in charge, Basilone headed back to the beach to get more men. He soon came across five Marines who, in the confusion and chaos of battle, had become separated from their platoon. Basilone ordered them to come with him. At that moment, a mortar shell landed in their midst.
Hearing the explosion, a corpsman with an advance patrol came running.
All the men were dead, except Basilone, but shrapnel had

Bail for each of the defendants was set at $300,000 and court-appointed attorneys were assigned to represent them.
Burglars have struck schools throughout the county more than a dozen times since Thanksgiving weekend, Authorities estimate the losses totaled about $250,000.
The prosecutor said Zimmerman was linked to six of the seven charged burglaries through cellphone records.He faces up to 13 years in prison.

er named after Basilone; in Raritan. a bronze statue of him; and in Oceanside, a 13mile stretch of I-5 that bears his name. And for every new Marine—as part of their education—his heroic actions are recounted.

Basilone was among the 7,000 Marines who were killed on Iwo Jima in the 26-day battle (his brother George, with the 4th Division, survived). Of the 22,000 Japanese, 215 surrended, the rest were killed. The battle for that island occurred many years ago, but Basilone is still remembered. There’s a U.S. Navy destroy-
We have a lot of friends in law enforcement and are delighted to see when they catch the bad guys.
In this case, multiple agencies participated in nailing the suspects: Border Patrol, San Diego City police, San Diego County Sheriff ’s office, San Diego District Attorney’s office . . . and it all appears to be coming together.
If these three are found guilty, as charged, it just might cut way back on the thefts of electronic equipment from our schools.
This appears to be pretty close to an organized crime ring with multiple targets and, no doubt, multiple buyers waiting to buy hot I-Pads and Laptops.
Well done law enforcement! Keep up the good work. We need more and more good men and women like you out there protecting us. Give a warm and cuddly . . . and safe feeling.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF LOUISE G. HARBIN Case No. 37-2013-00032597PR-PL-CTL To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate or both, of LOUISE G.

The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The peition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed actions.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petitions and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: MAR 12, 2013 Time: 11:00 a.m. Dept: PC-1 Address of court: Same as noted above.

Other California statutes and legal authorities may affect your right as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.
