First off, do NOT take a taxi from Pearson Airport into Toronto. It’ll cost you $54. A major rip-off.
Thanks to Escondido’s Dave Geary, who called us before we left Escondido, we learned to take the Union Pearson Express (Metro) from the airport into town and to return the same way. $6 per person, if you’re a senior, $12 for younger adults; then a $10 taxi ride from Union Staton to the Sheraton Hotel. Really neat commuter train . . . clean, fast, dependable, great staff . . . and economical! We were in Toronto to attend the Kiwanis International Convention and while busy doing convention activities we managed to squeeze in some great tours.
We arrived on Wednesday evening, kicked back and relaxed a bit, then, on Thursday, we bought a package that included the Hop On, Hop Off City Tour Bus, with over 20 stops and a free harbor boat cruise with each ticket; the tickets were valid for up to 48 hours so you could spread your exploration of Toronto over several days. Easily the best bargain in town. I would recommend riding the whole route first, deciding which stops you found the most fascinating . . . then repeat the route and stop wherever you have an interest (try to get on the top of the double decker bus; you’ll see more and you’ll enjoy the weather).
Our cost was only $34 each because we bought a package that included the Niagara Tour. We paid $89.38 (Canadian) for each of our tickets, which included the Hop On, Hop Off bus, plus the bay cruise, plus $22 each for the Niagara Falls boat tour. Separate tickets would have been $34.51 for the Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour plus $66.37 for Niagara, plus the Niagara boat tour. A great bargain! Hint: ALWAYS buy your Niagara boat tour ahead of time. You’ll avoid a one to one and a half hour wait in line just to buy tickets at the site. You’ll still have a half hour to 45 minute wait as the long, long lines await boarding for the approximate 15 minute boat ride into the area below the falls. There, you’ll get a refreshing fresh water shower as the mist and spray dashes your face chances are good that you’ll be laughing like a little kid. Well worth the investment of time and moeney. The Paper - 760.747.7119
On the bus tour, lots of neat places, including the wealthy district of Toronto, the “funky area” of Toronto, all of the historic areas, Chinatown, Casa Loma Castle, the bay area (where you get a bay cruise at no extra charge [normally a $19 charge) It was pointed out to us while on the bay cruise that on one of the several islands in the bay there was a nude beach. I looked and I looked. Didn’t see a thing. After the bay cruise we plopped ourselves down at a table at the Amsterdam Brewhouse and restaurant right on the bay. Excellent smoked hamburger with sushi shishkebob for me, Evelyn had a hamburger; both were excellent.
We had hoped to see the Casa Loma Castle but we had to pass. We simply ran out of time. We had a Kiwanis function we had to attend and were there, after all, for the Kiwanis International Convention. We were delegates and had to cast our votes. Duty called . . . so we missed out on the one “must see” when visiting Toronto. The Casa Loma Castle is legendary.
When Thomas Edison invented and patented the light bulb and the means of electrifying cities, a sharp eyed investor, Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, obtained a monopoly on electrification for Toronto and proceeded to become a very, very wealthy man.
What to do with all that money?
His wife said she’d like a nice new house. And so he built it.
The house cost about $3.5 million (in 1911 dollars) and took 300 workers three years to build. It was constructed from 1911 to 1914.
At 98 rooms covering 64,700 square feet, it was the largest private residence in Canada. Notable amenities included an elevator, an oven large enough to cook an ox, two vertical passages for pipe organs, a central

vacuum, two secret passages in Pellatt's ground-floor office, a pool, and three bowling alleys in the basement (the last two were never completed).
Glen Gray and His Casa Loma Band was named after his orchestra played at the castle for eight months in 1927, then moved to America where he became the leader of the very popular swing orchestra.
The city seized Casa Loma in 1933 for $27,303 in back taxes. The castle was extremely run down and the city was motioning for the castle to be demolished. In 1937, however, it was leased by the Kiwanis Club of West Toronto, later the Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma (KCCL), which began operating the castle under a solesource contract as a tourist destination. In 2011 that lease was canceled and a new lessee was brought on board. Kiwanis no longer manages Casa Loma Castle.
Once a very, very wealthy man, Sir Henry Mill Pellatt came upon hard times and was facing bankruptcy. Had he declared bankruptcy he would have had to relinquish his title and could no longer be called “Sir.” This was so important to him that he deeded (under pressure) his property over to the city of Toronto. He lived out his final years in a small

Dedicated to all the gun nuts out there. Finally, a good gun story
A guy walked into a crowded bar, waving his unholstered pistol and yelled, "I have a .45 Colt with an nine shot clip and I want to know who's been sleeping with my wife!”
A voice from the back of the room called out, "You don't have enough ammo!" ••••• He: Um, so, do ya wanna do it? She: Oh, can't you be a bit more romantic?

apartment above the garage of the man who was once his chauffeur; he died almost penniless. Tickets to Casa Loma are $25 for adults.
I enjoy exotic places like Chinatown, though because of time limitations, we never did dine there. Chinatown also borders on the “funky” side of Toronto . . . lots of Bohemian life styles, long hair, tattoos, artist lofts, communal apartments. Interesting, but I wouldn’t want to live there. There are huge markets and department stores in Toronto, many of which are connected by tunnels and/or built contiguously. On Saturday we boarded a luxuriously large and comfortable tour bus for our tour to Niagara Falls.
As we headed out of Toronto our tour guide, Alex Roberts, pointed out the very large number of high-rise condominiums in and around Toronto. “That’s because the population and economy is growing so fast that it was necessary to build up, rather than out. Toronto and its atmosphere is in high demand. So much so that last year real estate prices increased by 15%. For each of the five preceding years real estate prices had also risen by double digits.” Alex went on to point out the huge number of cars heading in our direction on the freeway. “It is so expensive to live in Toronto that many people com-

Bubba went to Oklahoma on a football scholarship. He was a good running back, but a poor student.
At graduation day, Bubba didn't have enough credits. But he was a great football star and the students held a rally and demanded the dean give him a diploma anyway. They were so insistent that the dean agreed if Bubba could answer one question correctly he would give him a diploma. The one question test was held in the auditorium and the students packed
mute from as far away as Niagara Falls . . almost a two hour trip. Other nearby cities, like Hamilton, offer little in the way of employment so many people live there because of the lower cost of living and commute to their jobs in Toronto.”
Add to this the change in demographics and lifestyles. Toronto is growing by an average of 4.5% (2011 census). 65.5% of nonfamily households is in Toronto. The increase in high-rise apartment units between 2006 and 2011 represents the largest absolute increase between Census years since 1991. The non-family household type was the fastest growing type of household across the Greater Toronto Area.”
The average price of a detached house in the city jumped 14.2 per cent in the past year, to a new record high of $1,051,092, the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) said recently Sales were up by 13.7 per cent. To show how active the real estate market is, prices in the suburban 905 region saw even stronger growth, at 15 per cent, with the average singlefamily home now selling for $738,016. The number of houses sold soared by 20 per cent. There is a 7% increase in aduilt children moving back in with their parents, as shown in the 2011 census. At the same time you’re seeing a 12.1% increase of single person households in Toronto (Ibid). Alex went on to explain . . . “ it used to be folks would get married, buy a home, get a big dog, and raise a couple kids. Because of the real estate market and the

The dean was on the stage and told Bubba to come up. The dean had the diploma in his hand and said, "Bubba, if you can answer this question correctly I'll give you your diploma." Bubba said he was ready and the dean asked him the question. "Bubba," he said, "How much is three times seven?"
Bubba looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes, just pondering the question. The students began chanting, "Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!" Then Bubba held up his hand and the auditorium became silent. Bubba said, "I think I know the answer. Three times seven is twenty-one."
A hush fell over the auditorium and the Oklahoma students began another chant."Give him another chance! Give him another chance!" ••••• We have enough "youth."

changing life styles you see more and more couples moving in, deciding to wait a while to have kids, and, if they have to have a dog, it’s a Chihuahua, or some small dog. They also tend to sell their cars. Very little need for a car in downtown Toronto. People walk, or they ride their bicycle. You’ll see lots of bikes in downtown Toronto. I sold my car several years ago and had a shortterm problem dealing with not having a car - for a couple months. Then I got over it. Now, if I don’t walk, I take my bike most everywhere.” “We welcome immigrants. We need these people to keep our economy flowing. The immigrant population is huge and we’re quite pleased with that.”
Indeed, as you walk the streets of Toronto you hear many different languages being spoken. Toronto has earned itself recognition as one of the most diverse, welcoming cities in the world.
We were treated to Alex’s continuing commentary as we headed for Niagara Falls on a day trip.
“As we pass through Mississaugua, Oakville, Hamilton, St. Catherine’s, and even in Niagara Falls, you’ll see more and more cities and villages where there is little or no employment but a much lesser cost of living. Consequently . . . that’s why you see the heavy inbound freeway traffic heading for Toronto. Folks want to work but can’t afford to live in Toronto. Upon arrival in Niagara Falls, Alex

We boarded the Niagara Falls boat, operated by Hornblower Cruises, the new concessionaire who has agreed to pay $22 million to be the exclusive boat at Niagara Falls. But whoa! There, across the bay, was “Maid of the Mist,” the legendary boat(s) that have been there for years. The Hornblower boat provides free red raincoats, the Maid of the Mist provide their patrons with free blue raincoats. A representative of Hornblower told me there is a major lawsuit under way; Hornblower, which pays Canada $22 million a year to be the exclusive Niagara Falls boat service, claims Maid of the Mist was given a renewal of the concession contract without any bids having been solicited or accepted. That, they say, is unfair. Maybe.
It’s not uncommon for US government agencies to offer existing concessionaires the right to match any competing bid and, if the concessionaire has been a good one, he automatically wins. The lawyers will have fun. And make a lot of money. On both sides of the issue.
We donned our red raincoats (very thin plastic) and boarded the boat. Hint: Buy your boat tickets ahead of time and avoid a 1 to 1.5 hour wait in the ticket line. You’ll still wait 30 to 45 minutes to board the boat but will not have had the much longer wait in the ticket line.
The ride itself was about 15-20 min-

Richmar Avenue in the Panorama Teen and Family Center in San Marcos, is a comprehensive resource dedicated to improving senior citizens’ quality of life, for them, their caregivers and families. The Center will connect seniors to resources in the areas of housing, home repair, transportation, food insecurity, emergency assistance, medical and mental health issues, legal issues, and more. The Center’s Program Manager, Rebecca Steiner, stated “Four out of every 10 seniors in S.D. County are struggling, and half say that isolation is negatively affecting their lives. Many seniors lack the financial resources to afford housing and other basic needs. The Foundation for Senior Wellbeing is determined to change those statistics, and this new Resource Center is a major part of that effort.” The Center will direct callers to available resources and will follow up with clients to ensure their questions/issues were resolved to their satisfaction. The information will be available by phone or in person for those who do not use computers or social media, and provided by staff or volunteers trained to communicate with seniors using patience and listening skills to research and recommend suitable resources. For more information, call Rebecca Steiner at 844.654.INFO (4636) or visit www.thefoundationforseniorwellbeing.org.

True to his word, Alex and his bus was waiting for us at 2:45 and we got underway again . . . this time we headed to the quaint little town of Niagara on the Lake where we walked up and down Main Street and sampled some ice cream from the Cows Not! Ice Cream parlor which the Royals made famous last year when they stopped to sample the ice cream. A nice half hour/forty-five minute visit then it was back on to the bus and off to Tracy’s Niagara-on-theLake. A lovely winery where they specialize in Ice Wine. They offered a tasting . . . and it’s quite good. Very sweet. They make Ice Wine, a trademarked name. Ice Wine is made by not harvesting the grapes at the normal time but letting them go into the winter; temperatures drop, the grapes freeze, you harvest them and squeeze them. They are almost like marbles. The juice you derive is ultra-sweet as is the finished wine. Very tasty, if you like sweet wines. We didn’t buy any wine but Evelyn bought a Cranberry-Raspberry Merlot Jelly.
The tour was now over . . . I think our total cost was around $254 for both of us and it was worth every penny. We headed back to Toronto for a comfortable and entertaining ride. Alex dropped us off at our hotel, The Sheraton, and we continued to enjoy the city.
On Saturday evening, before heading home, we had a delightful steak dinner at The Keg, a short walk from the Sheraton. Sunday morning we arose at 5am for an 8:20 flight home (and barely made it on the plane. Air Canada was woefully understaffed and a lot of passengers had the same plans . . . heading home early Sunday morning).

You’ll find college students and young immigrants on work visas working the tour buses, restaurants . . often sharing an apartment with several others to reduce housing costs. For those of you who are into the history and statistical backgrounds, some of the details about Toronto:
• It is the most populous city in Canada, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the center of the Greater Toronto Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Canada.
In the 2011 census, Toronto had a population of 2,615,060, making it the fifth largest city in North America. A population estimate from a city report released in 2013 shows the city is now the fourth most populous city in North America, after Mexico City, New York City, and Los Angeles. A global city, Toronto is an international center of business, finance, arts, and culture, and is widely recognized as one of the most multicultural and cosmopolitan cities in the world.
Aboriginal peoples have inhabited the area now known as Toronto for thousands of years. The urban history of the city dates back to 1787, when British officials negotiated the Toronto Purchase with the Mississaugas Nation. They established the Town of York, and later designated it as the capital of Upper Canada. During the War of 1812, the town was the site of the Battle of York and suffered heavy damage by U.S. troops. York was renamed and incorporated as the City of Toronto in 1834, and became the capital of the province of Ontario in 1867. The original borders of Toronto were expanded through amalgamation with surrounding municipalities at various times in its history, the results of which can be seen in the

140 independently unique and clearly defined official neighbourhoods that make up the city.
The demographics of Toronto make it one of the world's most diverse cities, with about 50% of residents having been born in a country other than Canada, and over 200 distinct ethnic origins represented among its inhabitants. The vastly international population of the city reflects its current and historical role as an important destination for immigrants to Canada. While English is the primary language spoken by the majority of Torontonians, there are over 160 different languages spoken in the city.
Toronto is a prominent center for music, theatre, motion picture production, and television production, and is home to the headquarters of Canada's major national broadcast networks and media outlets. Its varied cultural institutions, which include numerous museums and galleries, festivals and public events, entertainment districts, national historic sites, and sports activities, are key attractions to the over 25 million tourists that visit the city each year. Toronto is well known for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, in particular the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere, the CN Tower. As Canada's commercial capital, the city is home to the Toronto Stock Exchange, the headquarters of Canada's five largest banks, and the headquarters of many large Canadian and multinational corporations. Its economy is highly diversified with strengths in technology, design, financial services, life sciences, education, arts, fashion, business services, environmental innovation, food services, and tourism. The name Toronto is likely derived from the Iroquois word tkaronto, meaning "place where trees stand in the

Major Injury Traffic Collision
On June 29, at 3:46 a.m., an Officer from the Carlsbad Police Department arrived at the scene of a single vehicle traffic collision that had just occurred on Cannon Rd. just east of Hemingway Dr.
Carlsbad investigators took over the case and worked throughout the night to identify and arrest two suspects thought responsible for the crimes. The investigation included multiple search warrants within the 24 hour period and resulted in the collection of evidence.
Upon arrival, the Officer found a 19 year old female had lost control of her scooter and collided with a traffic control sign. The female suffered significant injuries to the left side of her body as a result of the collision. Additional Officers arrived on scene to assist and provided medical aid to the injured female, ultimately placing a tourniquet on her to control her bleeding. The Carlsbad Fire Department arrived and continued to provide medical aid to the female. Paramedics transported the female to Scripps Hospital, La Jolla. The female was subsequently transported to the UCSD Medical Center.
During the investigation, detectives learned that one of the suspects, 22year-old Brittney Lyon of Escondido, took children that she was babysitting to a home in the 6300 block of Greenhaven Drive that was occupied by her boyfriend, 22-year-old Samuel Cabrera Jr. At the residence, Cabrera reportedly engaged in sexual molestation of the children while Lyon filmed the acts.
Investigators arrested Lyon and Cabrera for multiple felony counts that included conspiracy and lewd and lascivious conduct with a child under the age of fourteen. Both were booked into the Vista Detention Facility where Lyon’s bail was set at $100,000 and Cabrera’s bail was set at $2.3 million.
The investigation has identified two 7year-old female victims, one from Oceanside and one from Escondido, and investigators believe there might be additional victims. The Police Department is asking for the public’s
Man About Town Soldier
His name is "Soldier." He is a year and a half old German Shepherd who has been in the Lancaster (LA County) animal shelter since 10/13. That was when his family moved away and dumped him there. Apparently, they were moving and just couldn't be bothered to take him along.
On the 24th, Soldier was taken to the "euthanasia room." He had been there about ten days and no one had discovered him and adopted him so his time "was at hand." His luck had run out.
I have heard from people whose job it is to put animals to sleep, mostly dogs, that the animal knows what is going

Another motorist who witnessed the collision stated the female was unable to negotiate the turn in the road due to her speed which caused her to collide with the center median and ultimately strike the traffic control sign. “We are equally disturbed and outraged that adults would victimize children in this way,” commented Police Chief Neil
on. They either sense something from the spirits of those who have gone before or they just somehow gather the vibes from the feel of death in the room and the mannerisms of the people there around them, they know what is about to happen to them. Some know it when they are being dragged on a leash down the hall to that room with all four legs stiffly outstretched trying to stop with every ounce of energy they have. But it is futile.
Soldier had been brought to the euthanasia room and was on the "euthanasia table." He was being readied for the injections that would end his short life right then and there. No one had come to get him out so this was gonna be it.
As he lay there, he looked at one of the attendants. Soldier knew what they were going to do to him and he stretched out his paw to the hand of the attendant in front of him and in that instant, a message passed between them. It was something like, "Please don't do this to me. I don't want to die. I am a good dog. Can't you help me? Please...." Literally a second before the deadly injection, the attendant said. "Stop. Wait. Soldier put his paw into my hand. I can't do this. Let's give him a break. Let's give him some more

time." With that, Soldier was taken down off the table and was spared a premature date with "the needle." He was given until October 30. If he has not been chosen by someone to adopt him by Monday evening, he will go, once again, down the hall to the euthanasia room and this time there will be no reprieve. He, will, indeed be killed. His dead body will go, with numerous others to a rendering plant where they will use his body and those of others killed to be used for commercial purposes. Something or someone somewhere, maybe Soldier's guardian angel was not going to give me peace until this story was told.
My hope was that someone out there would have read Soldier’s story and decide that maybe now is the time they need to get a family pet. Just maybe they will get Soldier a second but permanent reprieve before his date with doom on October 30.
Until someone has made a CTA (commitment to adopt) and has been there and filled out the adoption info, he will not be saved. You have to go there. You can tell them you are interested but nothing counts till the CTA happens. Soldier was in cage L336.
Letters to the Editor Accurate Story?
I am behind in my reading of The Paper and have just finished the June 23rd edition. I reference Mr. Morrow's Historically Speaking column, where he again has mis-stated facts. Quite some time ago, I wrote regarding Mr. Morrow's mis-information regarding the death of actor James Dean, where he stated Dean was killed on highway 101 near Paso Robles, Ca. This error was acknowledged in The Paper. However, in the June 23 column, he again states Dean's Porsche 'careened off the highway as he traveled north on Highway 101 near Paso Robles.'

water". This refers to the northern end of what is now Lake Simcoe, where the Huron had planted tree saplings to corral fish. A portage route from Lake Ontario to Lake Huron running through this point, the Toronto Carrying-Place Trail, led to widespread use of the name. In 1793, Governor John Graves Simcoe established the town of York on the existing settlement, naming it after Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany. Simcoe chose the town to replace Newark as the capital of Upper Canada, believing that the new site would be less vulnerable to attack by the US. The York garrison was constructed at the entrance of the town's natural harbor, sheltered by a long sandbar peninsula. The town's settlement formed at the eastern end of the harbour behind the peninsula, near the present-day intersection of Parliament Street and Front Street (in the "Old Town" area).
In 1813, as part of the War of 1812, the Battle of York ended in the town's capture and plunder by US forces. The surrender of the town was negotiated by John Strachan. US soldiers destroyed much of the garrison and set fire to the parliament buildings during their five-day occupation. The sacking of York was a primary motivation for the Burning of Washington by British troops later in the war. York was incorporated as the City of Toronto on March 6,
1834, reverting to its original native name.
The city grew rapidly through the remainder of the 19th century, as a major destination for immigrants to Canada. The first significant population influx occurred when the Great Irish Famine brought a large number of Irish to the city, some of them transient and most of them Catholic. By 1851, the Irish-born population had become the largest single ethnic group in the city. Smaller numbers of Protestant Irish immigrants were welcomed by the existing Scottish and English population, giving the Orange Order significant and longlasting influence over Toronto society. The system now has the thirdhighest ridership of any city public transportation system in North America. The city received new immigrant groups beginning in the late 19th century into the early 20th century, particularly Germans, French, Italians, and Jews from various parts of Eastern Europe. They were soon followed by Chinese, Russians, Poles, and immigrants from other Eastern European nations. As the Irish before them, many of these new migrants lived in overcrowded shanty-type slums, such as "the Ward" which was centred on Bay Street, now the heart of the country's finances. Despite its fast-paced growth, by the 1920s, Toronto's population and economic importance in Canada remained second to the much longer established Montreal. However, by 1934, the Toronto
Stock Exchange had become the largest in the country.
Following the Second World War, refugees from war-torn Europe and Chinese job-seekers arrived, as well as construction laborers, particularly from Italy and Portugal. Following the elimination of racially based immigration policies by the late 1960s, immigration began from all parts of the world. Toronto's population grew to more than one million in 1951 when large-scale suburbanization began, and doubled to two million by 1971. By the 1980s, Toronto had surpassed Montreal as Canada's most populous city and the chief economic hub. During this time, in part owing to the political uncertainty raised by the resurgence of the Quebec sovereignty movement, many national and multinational corporations moved their head offices from Montreal to Toronto and Western Canadian cities. In 1954, the City of Toronto and 12 surrounding municipalities were federated into a regional government known as Metropolitan Toronto. The postwar boom had resulted in rapid suburban development, and it was believed that a coordinated land use strategy and shared services would provide greater efficiency for the region. The metropolitan government began to manage services that crossed municipal boundaries, including highways, police services, water and public transit.

James Dean was killed near Chalame at the junction of CA 46 and CA 41, east of Paso Robles and approximately half the distance between Highway 101 and Interstate 5. Unless it has been removed, there should be an official State of California road sign at his intersection regarding James Dean. This bothers me because this is such an easy fact to verify. But it also makes me wonder about other stated facts in Mr. Morrow's columns, which I read regularly. /s/Hal Ellis Escondido, CA.

I’ll try to do better. ••••• We have been going to Sorrrento’s Restaurant in San Marcos for years. For our money it’s the best Italian Restaurant in North County. But, we had never tried their pizza, for which they are famous. I love pasta and have always opted for Spaghetti, or Lasagna, or Ravioli . . . but Saturday we decided to try one of their world famous pizzas. When we finished we both said, in our best Italian, “Atsa some-a great pizza!”

••••• Remember back when travel was fun, adventurous, even glamorous? No more. Thanks primarily to the airline industry. Their policy of cramming as many clients into that long aluminum tube, regardless of comfort levels, combined with the invasive TSA luggage and body searches, and ensuing long lines and time consuming waits . . . all add up to an often miserable experience. One exception seems to be Southwest Airlines. They still seem to provide enough room to dine in relative comfort and to grab a quick snooze. The other airlines . . . shame on them.
Still, I long to travel to Seattle and visit close friends. It’s a 22.5 hour flight - perhaps I can suffer that long in return for the chance to pick wild berries, to visit beautiful friends and family, and to enjoy Seattle’s great sea food restaurants.

California’s high housing costs, the cost of commercial real estate, of electricity and gasoline, our excessive business regulations, along with some of the nation’s highest income, sales and gasoline taxes, have driven millions of hard-working Californians out-of-state. It’s not surprising that for the eighth consecutive year, Chief Executive Magazine has rated California the worst state for business in the nation.

he may believe that, the most recent IRS data available indicates that between 2004 and 2014, five million people left California, taking $26 billion in annual income with them. For many, the Golden State is golden no longer. People may move to states with lower taxes and fewer regulations, but they also go where the jobs are. In many cases, employers have relocated to other states for just those reasons. Regulations, fees and taxes that needlessly drive up business costs need to be subjected to serious review, to say the least. After all, our `little burdens’ really aren’t that little if they destroy jobs and drive out millions.
A new legislative session begins in January, and I am hopeful that new and returning members will be able to join me in working together to lighten some of the burdens our over-governed state has placed on its hard-working people.

Toronto/Niagara Cont. from Page 5
All six municipalities were amalgamated into a single municipality, creating the current City of Toronto, successor of the old City of Toronto.
"Toronto is a new, brash, rag-tag place—a big mix of periods and styles." Toronto buildings vary in design and age with many structures dating back to the mid-19th-century, while other prominent buildings were just newly built in the first decade of the 21st century. Bay-and-gable houses, mainly found in Old Toronto, are a distinct architectural feature of the city. Defining the Toronto skyline is the CN Tower, a telecommunications and tourism hub. Completed in 1976 at a height of 553.33 metres (1,815 ft 5 in), it was the world's tallest freestanding structure until 2007 when it was surpassed by Burj Khalifa. Toronto is a city of high-rises, having 1,800 buildings over 30 metres (98 ft).
Through the 1960s and 1970s, significant pieces of Toronto's architectural heritage were demolished to make way for redevelopment or, simply, parking. In contrast, since the 2000s, Toronto has experienced a period of architectural revival, with several buildings by world-renowned architects having opened during the late 2000s. The many residential communities of Toronto express a character distinct from that of the skyscrapers in the commercial core. Victorian and Edwardian-era residential buildings can be found in enclaves such as Rosedale, Cabbagetown, The Annex, and Yorkville. Wychwood Park is historically significant for the architecture of its homes, and for being one of Toronto's earliest planned communities. The Wychwood Park neighbourhood was designated as an Ontario Heritage Conservation district in 1985. The Casa Loma neighbourhood is named after Casa Loma, a storybook castle built in 1911 complete with gardens, turrets, stables, an elevator, secret passages, and a bowling alley. Spadina House is a 19thcentury manor that is now a museum. High-rise development in these areas has given the former municipalities distinguishable skylines of their own with high-density transit corridors serving them.
Toronto is also home to Casa Loma, the former estate of Sir Henry Pellatt, a prominent Toronto financier, industrialist and military man. Other notable neighbourhoods and attractions include The Beaches, the Toronto Islands, Kensington Market, Fort York, and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Toronto is an international centre for business and finance. Generally considered the financial capital of Canada, Toronto has a high concentration of banks and brokerage firms on Bay Street, in the Financial District. The Toronto Stock Exchange is the world's seventh-largest stock exchange by market capitalization. The five largest financial institutions of Canada, collectively known as the Big Five, have
national offices in Toronto.
Toronto's unemployment rate was 8.1% in November 2011, down from 8.3% year over year. The cost of living in Toronto was ranked highest in Canada in 2011.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Foreign-born people made up 49.9% of the population. The city's gender population is 48% male and 52% female.
According to the United Nations Development Program, Toronto has the second-highest percentage of constant foreign-born population among world cities, after Miami, Florida. While Miami's foreign-born population has traditionally consisted primarily of Cubans and other Latin Americans, no single nationality or culture dominates Toronto's immigrant population, placing it among the most diverse cities in the world.
Visible minorities are projected to increase to 63% of the city's population by 2031. Over 100,000 immigrants arrive in the Greater Toronto Area annually.
In the 2011 Canadian census, the most common ethnic origins in the city of Toronto were as follows:
50.2% White 12.7% East Asian; 10.8% Chinese, 1.4% Korean, 0.5% Japanese 12.3% South Asian 8.5% Black 7.0% Southeast Asian; 5.1% Filipino 2.8% Latin American 2.0% West Asian 1.1% Arab 0.7% Aboriginal, of which 0.5% are First Nations and 0.2% are Métis 1.5% Multiracial; 1.7% including Métis 1.3% Other
This diversity is reflected in Toronto's ethnic neighbourhoods, which include Chinatown, Corso Italia, Greektown, Kensington Market, Koreatown, Little India, Little Italy, Little Jamaica, Little Portugal and Roncesvalles.
In 2011, the most commonly reported religion in Toronto was Christianity, adhered to by 54.1% of the population. A plurality, 28.2%, of the city's population was Catholic, followed by Protestants (11.9%), Christian Orthodox (4.3%), and members of other Christian denominations (9.7%). With the city's significant number of Methodist Christians, Toronto was historically referred to as the Methodist Rome.
Other religions significantly practised in the city are Islam (8.2%), Hinduism (5.6%), Judaism (3.8%), Buddhism (2.7%), and Sikhism (0.8%). Those with no religious affiliation made up 24.2% of Toronto's population.
While English is the predominant language spoken by Torontonians, many other languages have considerable numbers of local speakers. The varieties of Chinese and Italian are the second and third most widely spoken languages at work. Despite

‘Silent Cal’ Was Anything But Silent
John Calvin Coolidge Jr., born on July 4, 1872, was the 30th President of the United States (1923–29), the only chief executive born on Independence Day.
A Republican lawyer from Vermont, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of Massachusetts state politics, eventually becoming governor of that state. His response to a strike in 1919 thrust him into the national spotlight and gave him a reputation as a man of decisive action.
Coolidge didn’t say a lot, which gave him the moniker of “Silent Cal,” but his actions spoke volumes. His record shows he accomplished more during his term than most other Presidents. Coolidge was elected as vice president in 1920 and succeeded to the presidency upon the sudden death of Warren G. Harding in 1923. Elected in his own right in 1924, he gained a reputation as a small-government conservative, also as a man having a rather dry sense of humor.A Washington matron, seated next to him at a dinner, remarked, "I made a bet today that I could get more than two words out of you." Without hesitation, Coolidge replied, "You lose."
At the 1920 Republican National Convention, after 10 ballots, the bosses and then the delegates settled on U.S. Sen. Warren G. Harding of Ohio as their nominee for President. After several more ballots, Coolidge was named Harding’s running mate. The Democrats nominated James M. Cox, for president and Franklin D. Roosevelt, for vice president. Harding and Coolidge won with more than 60 percent of the popular vote. The U.S. vice presidency did not carry many official duties, but Coolidge was invited by President Harding to attend cabinet meetings, making him the first vice president to do so. As the U.S. vice president, Coolidge and his vivacious wife, Grace, were invited to quite a few parties, where the legend of "Silent Cal" was born. It is from this time that most of the jokes and anecdotes involving Coolidge originate. Coolidge often seemed uncomfortable among fashionable Washington society; when asked why he continued to attend so many of their dinner parties, he replied, "Got to eat somewhere." As President, Coolidge's repu-
tation as a quiet man continued. "The words of a President have an enormous weight and ought not to be used indiscriminately." Coolidge was aware of his stiff reputation; indeed, he cultivated it. "I think the American people want a solemn ass as a President," he once told actress Ethel Barrymore, "and I think I will go along with them."
On Aug. 2, 1923, when President Harding suddenly died in San Francisco, Coolidge was in Vermont visiting his family home, which had neither electricity nor a telephone. When he received word of Harding's death, he dressed, said a prayer, and greeted the reporters. At 2:47 a.m., on Aug. 3, 1923, his father, a notary public, administered the oath of office in the family's parlor by the light of a kerosene lamp. Coolidge then went back to bed. Coolidge restored public confidence in the White House after the scandals of Harding’s administration, and left office with considerable popularity. Though his reputation underwent a renaissance during the Ronald Reagan administration, modern assessments of Coolidge's presidency are divided. He is praised among advocates of smaller government; supporters of a larger central government generally view him less favorably, while both sides applaud his stalwart support of racial equality. President Coolidge made use of the new medium of radio and gave 520 press conferences -- more regularly than any President before or since. Coolidge's second inauguration was the first to be broadcast on radio,the first to broadcast a State of the Union address to Congress, and to appear in a sound film. President Ronald W. Reagan regarded Coolidge as his favorite 20th-century U.S. president because of Coolidge's belief in a more limited federal government.
The Ku Klux Klan lost most of its influence during Coolidge’s term, and his administration made all Native Americans U.S. citizens. After his presidency, Coolidge retired to fishing on the Connecticut River and was often observed by other fishermen and boaters. Coolidge died suddenly of a heart attack on Jan. 5, 1933. Upon learning the solemn President had died, popular author Dorothy Parker quipped: "How can they tell?" Coolidge is buried beneath a simple headstone in Plymouth Notch Cemetery in Vermont near the family home.

Canada's official bilingualism, while 9.7% of Ontario's Francophones live in Toronto, only 0.6% of the population reported French as a singular language spoken most often at home; meanwhile 64% reported speaking predominantly English only and 28.3% primarily used a non-official language; 7.1% reported commonly speaking multiple languages at home. The city's 9-1-1 emergency services are equipped to respond in over 150 languages. The low crime rate in Toronto has resulted in the city having a reputation as one of the safest major cities in North America. For instance, in 2007, the homicide rate for Toronto was 3.3 per 100,000 people, compared with Atlanta (19.7), Boston (10.3), Los Angeles (10.0), New York City (6.3), Vancouver (3.1), and Montreal (2.6). Toronto's robbery rate also ranks low, with 207.1 robberies per 100,000 people, compared with Los Angeles (348.5), Vancouver (266.2), New York City (265.9), and Montreal (235.3] Toronto has a comparable rate of car theft to various US cities, although it is not among the highest in Canada. So there you have it, a semi-guided tour of Toronto and Niagara Falls as well as the statistical and historical background on Toronto.
We hope we’ve whetted your appetite to visit Toronto.

Flower, a 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix, is looking for a patient home to call her own. This darling girl has had a bit of a rough start, and has been working with her caregivers to gain more confidence. She originally came into our care from another shelter with multiple wounds throughout her body that needed immediate attention. Despite the amount of pain she was in, Flower remained sweet and loving throughout her treatment. Flower can be timid when it comes to new people, and prefers to approach new visitors at her own pace without being rushed. Once she feels safe with someone, her favorite thing to do is crawl into your lap, lean in for pets and give gentle kisses. Flower is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus located at 3450 East Valley Parkway.

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
Chromebooks, TVs and Win10
Last month one of our commercial customers asked us if we could find them a couple of big (50 inch) smart TVs at a great price for their training facility. We typically don’t get involved with TVs but Nome pointed out that our vendor for “recertified” monitors and “refurbished PCs” also has “recertified” TVs. She also pointed out the fact that all of our kids have bigger TVs than we do. “Recerts” (Recertified) TV’s and monitors are a great bargain because they are almost always “brand new” and typically cost around half what retail stores charge. The “recert” process works like this. A “big box” store sells a new TV or monitor to a customer who then returns it for credit. Most big box stores have a 15 day “no questions asked” returns policy. Perhaps it didn’t fit his entertainment center, his wife made him take it back or he just wanted to use it for his Super Bowl party. Whatever the reason,
Chuckles Cont. from Page 9 In a Pennsylvania cemetery: Persons are prohibited from picking flowers from any but their own graves.
On the grounds of a public school: No trespassing without permission.
On a Tennessee highway: When this sign is under water, this road is impassable.
Similarly, in front of a New Hampshire car wash: If you can't read this, it's time to wash your car. ••••• A cowboy married his sweetheart, the school marm, and after the ceremony, they jumped up on his buckboard, for the five mile drive to his ranch. About a mile out of town the horse just stopped. The cowboy got down, looked the horse in the eye, and said, "That's one!" and got back aboard.
After another mile, the horse stopped again, and the cowboy got down again, and looked him in the eye again, and said,"That's two!"
Two miles from the ranch the horse stopped again. The cowboy got down, looked the horse in the eye, and said, "That's three!" Then he pulled his six gun out, and shot him. His new bride looked at him, and shouted, "What is wrong with you? Now we have to walk the last two miles to the ranch!"
the store is stuck with an item of merchandise that can no longer be sold as new. Big box store high volume contracts allow them to send “returns” back to the distributor who then ships “returns” back to a processing center for evaluation. If the “return” is perfectly good it is “recertified.” If repairs are required it is classified as “refurbished.” Most retail stores handle only “new” products so the “recerts” and “refurbs” are assembled into “lots” and auctioned to wholesale distributors who specialize in this type of merchandise. That’s where we buy them.
Our distributor had a “deal” on “recertified” 50 inch Visio Smart TVs so we bought several of them for customers, friends and ourselves. We sold out and made a second purchase. We have four left at $395. Give us a call if you are interested and we’ll give you the details (pictured below.)
ed. Many applications work the same in the “Chrome” operating system as they do in “Windows” or “iOS.” For the next several months we will offer a free halfhour, one-on-one familiarization session with the purchase of any new or “refurb” “Chromebook.” Additional training will be available for “Chromebook” buyers at reduced rates if needed.
“Chromebooks” are available in sizes from 10 to 15 inch. Prices for new “Chromebooks” start at under $200 and range to over $300. “Refurbs” are about $100 less. “Chromebooks” have no moving parts so a full function used “Chromebook” is nearly as good as a new one. Come on in and check them out. Microsoft is desperate to move Win7/8 users to Win10. Since most Win7 users have seen no advantage in taking the “upgrade,” The “free upgrade” program has fallen short of Microsoft’s targets.
The “free upgrade” officially ends on July 29th. Microsoft would love to extend it indefinitely, but we expect them to end the “free upgrade” as advertised but make the “upgrade” very easy to get, like “free” with the purchase of any Microsoft “Apps store” or “cloud products.” They really need Win 7 users to take that “upgrade” to “Winsnoop.”
As promised we have begun to stock Chromebooks and have been pleased to find that these low cost alternatives to Windows and Apple notebooks and tablets do everything most users need at a fraction of the price of an Apple and none of the malware vulnerability of a Windows PC. Switching to a “Chromebook” involves far less of a learning curve than we initially expect-
He holstered his gun, and replied, "That's one!" ••••• A police recruit was asked during the exam, “What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?” He answered, “Call for backup.” ••••• I have so many problems that if a new one comes along today, it will be at least two weeks before I can worry about it. ••••• A cop pulls a guy over for weaving across two lanes of traffic. He walks up to the driver’s window and asks, "You drinkin'?”
The driver said, “Well that depends You buyin’?” ••••• The Country Doctor A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring.
The older doctor suggested that the young one accompany him on his rounds, so the community could become used to a new doctor.
At the first house a woman complains, "I've been a little sick to my stomach." The older doctor says, "Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?" As they left, the younger man said,
"You didn't even examine that woman? How'd you come to the diagnosis so quickly?"
"I didn't have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed half dozen banana peels and apple cores in the rubbish bin. That was what probably was making her sick."
The younger doctor said "Pretty clever. If you don't mind, I think I'll try that at the next house." Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with a younger woman. She said that she just didn't have the energy she once did and said, "I'm feeling terribly run down lately."
"You've probably been doing too much for the Church," the younger doctor told her. “Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps." As they left, the elder doctor said, "I know that woman well. Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, she's very active in the church, but how did you arrive at it?" "I did what you did at the last house. I dropped my stethoscope and, when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the minister under the bed."
