Volume 47 - No. 27
by Friedrich Gomez
It was Wednesday evening, December 11, 1991 in Indianapolis, Indiana, where 41-year-old Kathie Vaughn lived. A cool 39 degrees filled the air. Vaughn was excited when she reflected on her journey, driving along Interstate 65 near Franklin, en route to Atlanta. There was much to be excited about. Vaughn was an antique dealer and had just purchased her used van and was making a business trip to an antique show at Atlanta, Georgia. Kathie’s only companion was her 65pound Rottweiler named Eve, who sat with her in the front seat. The dog always seemed to enjoy riding with her owner; in fact the Rottweiler was unusually close to her master and enjoyed any moment with Kathie, business trip or otherwise.
As she drove, the dog looked at passing vehicles but always kept a careful, cursory glance on her owner. Her dog, Eve, seemed to know that Kathie Vaughn was different from other human beings. Call it instinct, call it whatever you want, but the dog seemed to just sense such things. Kathie was not the normal, run-of-the-mill masters, at least not to Eve’s canine senses. As the van sped along Interstate 65, Kathie became more and more excited and couldn’t wait to complete the 432mile journey with her best friend, Eve.
But this trip would prove different from all the rest. Kathie Vaughn and her Rottweiler dog would only make it 33 miles from where they first started in Indianapolis.
The mysterious loud noise startled both dog and owner. It was a loud, single pop. The van continued on the expressway but Kathie’s grip on her steering wheel tightened and fear reflected in her eyes. To her right sat the Rottweiler – staring diligently into her master’s confused, blank face.
Instinctively, Eve seemed to sense her master’s fear and vulnerability. Despite the noise and the emerging smell of gasoline, the dog’s stare was fixed – unflinchingly – on her master. Soon smoke began to emerge from the back cabin portion of the van and Vaughn slowly felt as if she were, somehow, falling into a dream state.
Vaughn began feeling light-headed, disoriented, as smoke was now pouring from the engine section. Eve would not divert her protective stare from her master, who now began to slowly panic as she brought the van to a stop on the shoulder of the road. Now full-panic started to set-in because the smoke was getting worse by the seconds, making breathing difficult.
Now the Rottweiler stood fully erect, standing on all fours, knowing her master’s unusual vulnerability. The vulnerability which the canine long had sensed in her master: 41-year-old

Kathie Vaughn was a paraplegic, paralyzed from the waist down by multiple sclerosis. The van was now on fire and Kathie was close to losing consciousness. She was weak and her shaking fingertips reached out as she, with great effort, slowly tried gathering parts of her dissembled wheelchair.
At first the dog watched, as if hoping her master knew how to crawl back into the wheelchair that the canine often saw her in. The wheelchair was her only hope now, but, Kathie was now too weak, too disoriented, too engulfed with smoke inhalation. She was now even closer to succumbing to unconsciousness and Vaughn only remembers pushing her wheelchair out the van where it crashed, uselessly on the ground below.
The Rottweiler had seen enough. She instinctively sprang into action. With her teeth the dog grabbed her owner by her clothing and began pulling her out of the burning vehicle. Desperate, the

dog would do anything within its power to save her master’s life, even at the risk of ending her own canine existence.
Finally pulled free from the van, the paraplegic fell helplessly to the ground like a marionette whose overhead strings had just been suddenly cut.
Luckily, a nearby trucker had seen the disaster and radioed for help. Indianapolis State trooper, Mike Snider, who had passed Kathie Vaughn’s van just moments before the fire broke out, quickly raced back to the scene.
State trooper, Snider, could not believe his own eyes. “It was incredible!” he recalls. “When I pulled up, the dog was pulling the lady through the grass to get her away from the fire. From looking at the situation, there was no other way she (Kathie Vaughn) could have gotten out.”
The 65-pound Rottweiler continued to drag her 106-pound owner more than

20 feet away from the burning vehicle, then continued to drag her further into a drainage ditch just before the van exploded into an inferno. It seemed that the dog instinctively knew that Kathie had to be pulled away additional yardage into a ditch to physically hide and shield her from further harm from the impending explosion. When Eve was dragging Vaughn, fragments of the paraplegic’s clothing would rip away. That’s when the dog, by pure instincts, lowered her head over her master, nudging Vaughn’s arms and hands.
Kathie Vaughn remembers, “She was signaling me to grab on to her collar, so I did.” Vaughn held on tightly as the dog continued to drag her an additional 40 feet. Remarkably, the Rottweiler had never had any special handicap training in caring for a paralyzed paraplegic. How the dog knew how to behave in such a critical rescue-operation remains a daunting mystery.

While the fire and smoke was engulfing the van, Kathie keenly remembers one thing when she was still trapped in her van. “I kept pushing Eve out of the van but she just kept coming back to me, purely by instinct. I wasn’t even calling her.”
The dog’s refusal to leave her master was a critical life-saving turning point in an otherwise deadly ordeal. But the problem of now tending to Kathie Vaughn’s injuries at the scene remained a challenge for the assembled emergency crew. The Rottweiler continued to protect her owner. But this time from the police and first-responders. The dog was hurt and seemed dazed and even though in a weakened state – she would not let anyone touch her master. The expertly-trained emergency team saw a solution. They let the dog drag her, as Kathie hung onto Eve’s collar, the few remaining feet to where the medical firstresponders all stood, waiting. Vaughn remembers, “She (Eve) had to help me get to the police car, because she wouldn’t let the policemen get to me.” After it was over, Kathie was medically treated; the multiple sclerosis victim was badly bruised from her falling out of the van. It was then that a startling discovery was made. Her 65-pound brave Rottweiler had suffered severe burns to her four paws. Sensitive and badly singed, the dog

When I bought my Blackberry, I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, my 13 grand kids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space. That was before one of my grandkids hooked me up for Tweeter, Tweetree, Twhirl, Twitterfon, Tweetie and Twitterific, Tweetdeck, Twitpix and something that sends every message to my cell phone and every other program within the texting world.
never yelped out in pain during her most courageous rescue of her master. Only after the fact, was the dog treated by veterinarians.
The total loss of the newly-purchased van, along with all of Kathie Vaughn’s valuable antiques, were now taken in stride. Vaughn realized that she had lost precious material possessions, but, far more importantly – her dog, Eve, had saved her life from a near-death episode. Kathie Vaughn has no regrets at all. In fact, she is happy, full of life, and forever grateful to her best friend and loyal companion she calls Eve.
For her heroic act, Eve was officially awarded the very prestigious American Human Society’s “William O. Stillman Award for Exceptional Bravery.” The William O. Stillman Award is named after an early president of the American Humane Association and is bestowed only in cases of unusual valor and courage of and beyond the call of duty. Kathie Vaughn, of course, was there for the official ceremony. Like a proud mother looking at a courageous member of her family, Vaughn could only wipe away the tears that kept flooding her eyes. She was most proud of her Rottweiler who saved her life that day, on the shoulder of a road, refusing to take commands until her master was safe and sound. “That’s the true nature of Rottweilers,” Vaughn said proudly, beaming with joy. “They’re very loyal and loving and will take care of their owner at all costs.” That’s when words began to fail her and Vaughn choked back tears as she struggled to continue her praise: “She just loves me. She helps me all the time.”
My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready to live like this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.
The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Blue tooth [it's red] phone I am supposed to use when I drive. I wore it once and was standing in line at Barnes and Noble talking to my wife and everyone within 50 yards was glaring at me. I had to take my hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud. I mean the GPS looked pretty smart on my dashboard, but the lady inside that gadget was the most annoying and rudest person I had run into in a long time. Every 10 minutes she would sarcastically say, "Re-calc-u-lating." You would think that she could be nicer. It was like she could barely tolerate me. She would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next light. Then if I made a right turn instead. Well, it was not a good relationship. When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell her the name of the cross streets and, while she is starting to develop the same tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me. To be perfectly frank, I am still try-
MILITARY HERO. Staff Sergeant Reckless was a most unusual decorated war hero during the Korean conflict. Unusual in that this member of the United States Marine Corps was not a human being – but a horse.
Yet, she held official rank in the United States military. A most rare, official honor. Reckless was a small mare purchased by Lieutenant Eric Pederson and entered into the U. S. Marine Corps in 1952 and served in the Korean War for which she was twice promoted, finally to the rank of staff sergeant.
Her duties were to go to-and-from the ammo delivery sites. And during the Battle of Panmunjom-Vegas, she would make a remarkable 51 trips – by herself – under heavy enemy fire. She was trained to travel the various deadly routes, over and over, carrying critical supplies and ammunition for the front lines, whose very lives depended on her. She was even used to evacuate wounded U. S. Marines.
Often under heavy artillery fire, the military war horse remained calm under these abnormally-loud explosive concussions, often traveling these various routes on her own, without the benefit of a handler to instruct her along the way. The highlight of her career came in late March 1953 during the Battle for Outpost Vegas when, in a single afternoon, she succeeded – under deadly enemy bombardment – in making 51 solo trips to resupply multiple frontline U. S. Marine units. Ammunition supplies that were critical in keeping Marines alive.
ing to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still haven't figured out how I lose three phones all at once and have to run around digging under chair cushions, checking bathrooms, and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings.
The world is just getting too complex for me. They even mess me up every time I go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on something themselves but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" every time I check out just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I never remember to take them with me
Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, "Paper or plastic?" I just say, "It doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual." Then it's their turn to stare at me with a blank look. I was recently asked if I tweet. I answered, “No, but I do fart a lot." We senior citizens don't need anymore gadgets. The TV remote and the garage door remote are about all we can handle.

Even after she was hit by enemy fire, she somehow persevered, despite the fact that on one occasion she would be wounded twice. During the Battle of Vegas, which lasted 3 days, she was wounded two times in two different regions of her body in the same day: once over the left eye by shrapnel, and once on her left flank.
For her unswerving valor in saving countless Marines, she earned the battlefield rank of corporal in 1953, and then a battlefield promotion to sergeant in 1954, several months after the war had ended. Reckless’ astounding nine-month military career is increasingly difficult to comprehend, especially for a simple pack animal. She became the first horse in U. S. Marine Corps history to participate valiantly in an amphibious landing – for which she was officially awarded two Purple Hearts (for being wounded in action). Other decorations followed, such as the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, 4 Korean Service Medals, 2 Navy Presidential Unit Citations, Navy Unit Commendation, Korean Presidential Unit Citation, and a United Nations Korea medal.
Reckless was even included in her unit’s Presidential Unit Citations – which were bestowed from two different countries. She was truly one of the most highlydecorated war heroes, man or beast.
So extraordinary was the horse’s military service that she and her war record were featured in the April 17, 1954

issue of The Saturday Evening Post magazine for an entire grateful nation to read about. This exposure created an amazing public groundswell of supporters here in America who campaigned to bring her to the United States. Remarkably, she would appear in a second featured article in The Saturday Evening Post on October 22, 1955.
Her service was so extraordinary that Life Magazine finally recognized her as one of “America’s 100-All-Time Heroes.”
No other animal had earned such high military praise. Few humans even lapped her fame. Prior to her departure for America, a ceremony, complete with band was held during half time of a football game between the Marine Corps and Army.
Before Reckless was disembarked from the ship which carried her to San Francisco, the U. S. State Department of Agriculture insisted she be kept onboard for quarantine purposes and infectious medical testing. These tests would delay her from being the guest of honor at a special Marine banquet especially planned for her. An outrage of anger issued forth from legions of U. S. Marines who considered this delay to be “An affront to her honor.”
Finally, the U. S. Marine Corps officially contacted the Agriculture Department officials in Washington, D. C. who agreed to let her off the ship after her blood was drawn.
Installing officer was outgoing president Becky Flanagan. The officers installed were, (standing l-r): Laura Anderson, Secretary; Maggie Larsen, Assistant Secretary; Becky Flanagan, outgoing president; Evelyn Madison, president; Marlene Joehnk, Treasurer; Leona Springfield, Vice President-Grounds; (seated l-r) Mary Watts, Finance Chairman; "Mike" Satkoski, Assistant Treasurer; and Eli Striegler, Vice President-Membership.
Absent was Diane Nelson, 1st Vice President-Dean of Chairmen. In addition, Becky was honored and thanked for her two
She was personally led off the ship by Lieutenant Eric Pederson (who had first purchased her at Seoul, Korea, for military duty) and her celebrated hooves first set foot on American soil in San Francisco on November 10, 1954 – which, coincidentally, was the birthday of the U. S. Marine Corps.
As planned, Reckless did make her appearance as Guest of Honor at the United States Marine Corps Birthday Ball, where she rode up an elevator and then proceeded to, unexpectedly, eat both the cake and the flower decorations that were set into place. Her legend and lore and funny antics did not disappoint the waiting assemblage of U. S. Marines who gave her a sustained standing ovation.
After being officially retired here in the United States she made numerous television appearances including the nationally popular “Art Linkletter’s House Party” TV show. She was even invited to appear on “The Ed Sullivan Show” but was unable to attend at the time. Ed Sullivan was so eager to have her appear before his national audience that he was even willing to pay the entire costs to get her shipped to New York. Unfortunately, due to circumstances at the time, she never made the much sought-after Ed Sullivan Show appearance.
Even while reading about her exploits or viewing actual wartime film footage, her legacy still seems beyond belief.
The legendary horse had strong San Diego connections. Today you can still see her impact as a military hero, right here in San Diego County. A plaque and photo of Staff Sergeant Reckless were dedicated in her honor at the U. S. Marine Corps Base stables

DAR Members Attended Monument Rededication - In support of the California World War One Centennial Task Force and the Los Angeles-Eschscholtzia Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Daughters from San Diego Chapters traveled to Victory Memorial Grove in Elysian Park for the rededication of a monument to family members who had given their all in the Great War.
at Camp Pendleton near Oceanside, California.
The motto “Once a Marine, always a Marine” truly applied to Reckless who was greatly loved by her comrade Marines, both in and out of combat. Her fellow Marines will never allow her to be forgotten for helping to save the lives of her brethren military men and for that, alone, she will always be cherished in the U. S. Marine Corps official record books.
Even to this day, Staff Sergeant Reckless is far from being forgotten.
Less than 4 years ago, on July 26, 2013, a statue of the great U. S. Marine war horse was dedicated at the National Museum of the U. S. Marine Corps at Quantico, Virginia. There is a lock of her tail hair in the base of the statue. The statue’s plaque contains a quote from Sergeant Harold Wadley, who served in battle alongside Staff Sergeant Reckless: “The spirit of her loneliness and her loyalty, in spite of the danger, was something to behold. Hurting. Determined. And alone. That’s the image I have imprinted in my head and heart forever.”
More recently, just 8 months ago in San Diego County, a memorial to Staff Sergeant Reckless was dedicated at Camp Pendleton on October 26, 2016. The monument was created by famed sculptor, Jocelyn Russell, and it is similar to the one located at the National Museum of the U. S. Marine Corps in Virginia.
Reckless’ legacy cuts a wide swath in the U. S. military.
Reflecting back on her legendary military service, she not only saved countless lives, she also gave the troops a focal point of hope and love. During

The monument and plaque were originally dedicated on Flag Day 1921 on land donated by former CA DAR State Regent Mary Stilson. The WWI Centennial runs through 2018.

her military service, fellow Marines fell deeply in love with Reckless. She quickly became part of their company and was allowed to roam freely about their camp, even entering the Marines’ tents at will, which brought bouts of uncontrollable laughter – a much needed morale booster during the most violent of times. Sometimes on cold nights Reckless would not only enter a fellow Marine’s tent, she would sometimes decide to sleep there with her military comrades. She developed such a close rapport with the troops that she would often enter a tent and sleep lying next to platoon Gunnery Sergeant Joseph Latham, whom she most favored. It was Latham who was Reckless’ primary trainer and who taught her battlefield survival skills. She was taught to avoid barbed wire and to lie down on the ground when under severe enemy bombardment. She even learned to run for a bunker upon hearing the Marines cry out: “INCOMING!” There in Latham’s tent, she would often find her way, lying down next to Latham’s warm tent stove on cold Korean nights.
Her appetite became legendary with the troops. Her appetite knew no bounds and she was known to consume almost anything in sight, including scrambled eggs, Coca-Cola, and even beer. When food was left unattended, well, it was fair game for her. Reckless was also known to eat bacon, buttered toast, chocolate candy, hard candy, shredded wheat, peanut butter sandwiches and mashed potatoes.

The Paper • Page 4 • July 6, 2017 Sobriety Enforcement Results
The Escondido Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on June 30, 2017, at 3300 Bear Valley Parkway. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public. High Visibility Enforcement, which include DUI/Drivers License checkpoints, have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints are the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive alcohol or drug impaired, bringing about more awareness and encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers. Drivers whose only offense was being unlicensed to drive were given the opportunity to locate the registered owner of the vehicle to either take or assign possession of the vehicle to a licensed driver. 6 vehicles were released to the owner or a designated driver. During the checkpoint, 3 vehicles were impounded. Following are additional results from this event: 3562 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. 731 vehicles were screened in primary. 26 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs) 10 total citations were issued during the checkpoint. (1 for suspended license and 6 for unlicensed driver, 2 for no insurance) 3 Field sobriety tests 2 Arrests for driving under the influence
of alcohol. DUI educational material was distributed during the checkpoint
Studies of California drivers have shown that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.
Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses that can exceed $10,000, not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.
The Escondido Police Department will be conducting additional DUI/Drivers License Checkpoints on an ongoing basis. The department is committed to lowering deaths and injuries upon our streets and highways.

I then found out that Evelyn wanted some spaghetti. And I had eaten it. All of it. What's a guy to do? 90% of the time she leaves her food untouched in the fridge. This leads to waste. Example: This past week I noted a box in the fridge, opened it up and plated it, was ready to microwave it and then noticed something. Green mold. It was Chinese food and I was in the mood for Chinese. But mold is not my favorite dish. So I threw it out. I am one of these odd ducks who simply can't stand to see food wasted.

anything if the spirit moved her. She once ate her own horse blanket and on another occasion she ate $30 worth of poker chips when she barged-in, unannounced, on a poker game in progress. Her fellow U. S. Marines almost died from spasms of laughter.
Under the most horrible of human conditions, Reckless gave her comrades joy, laughter, and love – indispensable virtues in a most unlikely wasteland of bloodshed.
Reckless was under the medical care of Navy Hospital Corpsman, George “Doc” Mitchell. It was Mitchell who advised the platoon that she should not be given more than two bottles of Coca-Cola a day. In a famous photo with Mitchell, Reckless is shown wearing an Australian campaign hat, which she eventually ate.
She was just a small mare, standing only 14 hands at the withers and weighed 900 pounds. Yet, she was a towering giant to the U. S. Marines who proudly served with her. Especially the wounded Marines whose lives she helped rescue from the jaws of death (she transported the wounded). Reckless was well-cared for and treated as an actual VIP during her time at Camp Pendleton in San Diego County. She produced four foals at Camp Pendleton: Fearless (1957), Dauntless (1959), Chesty (1964), and an unnamed filly which died shortly after birth in 1965.
Her offspring, Chesty, was named after U. S. Marine Corps Lieutenant General, Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller (1898-1971), the most decorated United States Marine of all-time. Puller was one of the few Marines ever allowed to ride Reckless.
It was here in San Diego County where Reckless was retired from active service with full military honors at Camp Pendleton on November 10, 1960. It was at Camp Pendleton where Reckless was promoted to staff sergeant (E-6) on August 31, 1959, several months after the war had ended. The promotion was presented by Randolph M. Pate, then the commander of the 1st U. S. Martine Division. She was honored with a 19-gun salute and a 1,700man parade of U. S. Marines from her wartime unit who served with her. Reckless died on May 13, 1969, but her memory lives on at various U. S. Marine bases around the United States. At the time of her death, she was estimated to have been 19 or 20 years old.
Lieutenant General, Randolph M. Pate, of the 1st U. S. Marine Division at Camp Pendleton in San Diego County once said these very words: “I was surprised at her beauty and intelligence, and believe it or not, her esprit de corps. Like any other Marine, she was enjoying a bottle of beer with her comrades. She was constantly the center of attraction and was fully aware of her importance. If she failed to receive the attention she felt her due, she would deliberately walk into a group of Marines and, in effect, enter the conversation. It was obvious the Marines loved her.”
way to this very day. She was, and still is, greatly honored and loved by our U. S. Marines Corps today. And rightly so.

spite of increased food costs and labor costs, all the restaurants we saw were full of patrons and lines waiting for service. Another healthy sign for the economy? •••• Older Man Scam . . .
Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven’t heard about it. A ‘heads up’ for those men who may be regular customers at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart. This one caught me totally by surprise. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you or your friends.
Here’s how the scam works; Two nice looking, college-age girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your purchases into your vehicle. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. (It’s impossible not to look). When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say ‘No’ but instead ask for a ride to McDonald’s. You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.
I had my wallet stolen May 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, again on the 17th, 20th, 24th, and the 29th. Also June 1st, 4th, 8th, twice on the 16th &17th, and very likely again this upcoming weekend. So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant.
Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found even cheaper ones for $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought them out in three of their stores. Also, you never get to eat at McDonald’s. I’ve already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth from Lowe’s, to Home Depot, to WalMart.
So please, send this on to all the older men that you know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam. (The best times are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon.) The ending of the school year . . . On the last day of school, the children brought gifts for their teacher.
The florist’s son brought the teacher a bouquet of flowers. The candy store owner’s daughter gave the teacher a pretty box of candy.
Then the liquor-store owner’s son brought up a big, heavy box. The teacher lifted it up and noticed that it was leaking a little bit. She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger and tasted it. “Is it wine?” she guessed. “No,” the boy replied.
She tasted another drop and asked,
“No,” said the little boy. “It’s a puppy!” •••• We always try to pass helpful information along to our readers and today is no exception; How to keep a woman happy ….

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
FDR’s GOP Opponent Who Became an Ally
Of the four presidential campaigns Franklin Delano Roosevelt ran, he considered a small-town Indiana lawyer, Republican Wendell Willkie, as the most formidable of his opponents. Wendell Lewis Willkie (born Lewis Wendell Willkie; Feb. 18, 1892, was an American lawyer and the 1940 Republican nominee for president.
"I did not leave my party. My party left me."
Willkie did not run in the 1940 presidential primaries, but positioned himself as an acceptable choice for a deadlocked convention. Willkie appealed to liberal, “Eastern Establishment” Republicans who saw none of the declared candidates to their liking. His rumpled suits, country-style haircut, and Indiana twang were reminiscent of ordinary mid-westerners, which led to some derision as the efforts to nominate him became more obvious. Interior Secretary Harold L. Ickes mocked Willkie as "a simple, barefoot Wall Street lawyer.”Alice Roosevelt Longworth (daughter of Theodore Roosevelt) said the Willkie campaign came "from the grass roots of 10,000 country clubs.”
Republicans didn’t want to nominate an isolationist like Thomas E. Dewey; they turned to Willkie, who was nominated on the sixth ballot over Ohio Senator Robert A. Taft. Willkie's support for aid to Britain removed it as a major factor in his race against Roosevelt. Also important, Willkie backed Roosevelt on a peacetime draft. However, Roosevelt won an unprecedented third term, taking 38 of the 48 states. After the election, Willkie made two wartime foreign trips as Roosevelt's representative. He continued as nominal leader of the Republican Party, but gave Roosevelt his full support, which angered many conservatives, especially as Willkie increasingly advocated liberal or internationalist causes.
Although the U.S. remained neutral prior to Pearl Harbor, Willkie favored greater U.S. involvement in World War II to support Britain and other Allies. In 1933, Roosevelt was sworn in as U.S. president and soon after Willkie became head of Commonwealth and Southern Corp., a utility holding company. The president announced plans for a Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) that would supply power in competition with C&S. Between 1933 and 1939, Willkie fought against the TVA before Congress, in the courts, and before the public. He was ultimately unsuccessful, but sold C&S's property for a good price, and gained public esteem.
On the assumption Roosevelt would not seek a third term, Willkie had been spoken of as a possible Democratic presidential candidate as early as 1937. A stream of positive press mentions for Willkie continued through 1938 and into 1939, culminating with a favorable cover story in Time magazine in July 1939. Willkie was initially dismissive of the many letters he received urging him to run for president, but soon changed his mind.
Willkie never had any doubt that Roosevelt would run for a third term, and that his route to the White House would have to be through the Republican Party. In late 1939 he changed his registration and early in 1940 announced he would accept the Republican nomination if it were offered to him. He felt the Democrats no longer represented the values he advocated. As he later characterized it,
Willkie will be remembered for giving Roosevelt vital political assistance in 1940, which allowed the president to aid Britain in its time of crisis. Willkie announced support of the president's Lend-Lease program. It was highly unpopular in the Republican Party, and Willkie's announcement created a firestorm. With almost 200 Republican members of the House and Senate, one senator remarked that "Willkie couldn't dig up 10 friends if his life depended on it." Willkie had long been neglectful of his health and diet, smoking heavily, and rarely exercising. His heavy drinking had charmed the reporters in Philadelphia in 1940, but by 1944 it was becoming a problem. In August 1944, Willkie felt weak while traveling by train to his Rushville home. There, he suffered a heart attack, but refused to be admitted to a hospital.
Willkie's condition only worsened as the weeks went on. He went to New York by rail and on the trip, he was stricken with another heart attack. he was said to have suffered over a dozen heart attacks. He died on Oct.8, 1944. The president released a statement saying, "... In this hour of grave crisis, the nation loses a great citizen."
War Secretary Henry Stimson offered to have Willkie buried in Arlington National Cemetery, but Edith Willkie wanted her husband to be buried in his native Indiana, at Rushville. His casket was placed in the center aisle of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church; 60,000 people filed by his casket, and 35,000 crowded around the church during the service, including many blacks -- as, Eleanor Roosevelt noted in her column, was fitting. Wendell and Edith Willkie rest together in Rushville'sEast Hill Cemetery. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

I WANT MY INDEPENDENCE
Recently, I was asked by the grandparents of their sixteen year old granddaughter if I could help them deal with the child’s desire for independence from her mother. The sixteen year old wanted to smoke, take drugs, date and associate with whomever she wanted, have no limits with time constraints, and basically do whatever she wanted. She desired independence, to be on her own. Our country wanted that in the middle of the 1700’s, to be independent of British rule. The colonists set their demands and fought for a life of independence.
Like the teen-ager, our nation moved away from “parental” rule to be on its own. It all sounded so good – to be
able to do, believe, and pursue one’s own desires. While the country and the teen-ager are in their respective worlds, the consequences are similar – to live without the confines of law and order. The teen-ager is experiencing the loss of self-control, lack of respect from her friends and family, and losing opportunities for an educational future. Our country found itself heavily in debt, loss of life, undisciplined and ill-experienced leaders in government, little infrastructure for basic community needs, and the need for total reorganization.
If independence is our desire and goal, there is always the need to know what one is giving up and the cost of “going it alone.” The story that tells us this truth better than any other is in Genesis 1 about the Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve. The temptation facing them was to be on their own, without God’s restraints and, to show their independence, they ate the forbidden fruit. Doing so, they lost innocence and Paradise and now had to find their way in a hostile world.
While independence seems great, dependence is greater when it is connected to a faith in God and being reliant on His wisdom. Many of our founding fathers saw this in the independent development of our country.

Vista Switches To District Elections
Following a series of eight public meetings, the Vista City Council voted unanimously to move the city from an at-large to a district-based election system. Under the at-large election system, voters of the entire city elect all members of the City Council. The new by-district election system divides the city into four geographic districts and voters in each district only vote for the city council seats up for election in their specific district. The mayor will continue to be elected atlarge by all of the voters of Vista. All

etc are typically installed and executed on PC workstations or on LAN (local area network) connected PC servers. Business workstations typically store data files locally on hard drives. Some may also use “the cloud” for data backup and to access “cloud” applications and data bases.

“Today’s home and business computers”
There are fundamental differences between the usage patterns of home and business PC users. Those patterns have continued to diverge as home users abandon “stand alone” applications for “the cloud” while businesses hang on to their business specific, local applications. Business PC users have “off line” (stand alone) activities that require their PCs to have local processing power. Programs for accounting, invoicing, contact management, word processing, forms and desktop publication
Prayer Helps Pastoral Services Available Always Here to Help and to Pray
Home PC users have largely abandoned “stand alone” applications. Most home and school applications are on the WWW. Communication, banking, taxes, genealogy, research, surfing and even data storage are increasingly “cloud” based. Most users still store pictures and files on their local hard drives and most home users have a printer, but for the most part our home PCs are basically nothing more than tablets or smart phones with a big screen, keyboard and mouse.
none of the bloatware (ads, popups, links and trial programs), that cram retail PCs. Ours have only the things you need and they are free (Office suite and anti-virus software). Another important difference is that our warranty, repair and technical services are local and not located in some low-rent country on the other side of the planet.
So if you need to add or replace a PC or workstation for your home or business, think about stopping in either before or after you join the bottom feeders at Fry’s, Best Buy or Costco. We have solid PCs for any need starting at under $200 and ranging up to “Katie bar the Door” and we won’t let you make a mistake. Try us, you’ll like us.
When a PC is being used on the Internet it is using only a fraction of its memory and CPU power. The speed of the Internet connection determines how fast the computer responds no matter how much RAM or how fast the CPU. A ten year old Pentium IV accesses the Internet just as fast as a $2000 dollar “super gamer” PC. The bottom line for most home users and many business users is that buying a new computer is a waste of money. Unless you have a genuine need

The i3 and i5 Dell and HP desk-top and notebook PCs that fill the retail shelves in the big box stores are technically capable of performing normal home and business applications but they are cheaply made and come with Windows10 Home.
