Volume 43- No. 25
by Frank Lorey One of the lesser known aircraft of World War II was the Consolidated B-24 Liberator, a heavy bomber. It drew less press coverage for exploits than the more famous B-17 Flying Fortress, despite the fact it could carry a heavier bomb load and had a greater range. The B-17 got the The Paper - 760.747.7119

glamour, but the B-24 certainly got the job done. Arguably one of the most famous B-24 Liberator pilots was George McGovern. He flew 35 combat missions starting in 1943 in Europe, and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. His career in politics after the war brought him the most
fame, however. McGovern recalled “I was the pilot of the ‘Dakota Queen’, I named the plane after my wife. I didn’t really talk much about the war for quite a few years afterward, but Stephen Ambrose (an historian and author) got me to open up. I did keep in touch with a lot of my crew through the years,
however. Five of the ten guys are still alive, but we are all in our late 80’s and early 90’s.” He has many memories of his crew—“One of the guys went home early with ‘war stress’, but when he got home he stepped off the curb and was killed by an automobile. He was our flight engineer. My copilot (Bill Rounds) was a

Page 2 - June 21, 2012 ‘The B-24 Liberator’ Cont. from Page 1 character. He is dead now, but the stories about him were incredible. Bill could fly a tenhour mission, come home, take a shower, and be in sack with a woman by the time the rest of us would be crashed out cold.” McGovern saw many things during the war that have affected him to this day. One story relates to his current involvement in feeding hungry children worldwide--“On the troopship heading to Naples with all the other pilots, bombardiers, navigators, engineers, we were pulling into port and we saw hundreds of skinny kids crowding the docks. They were all yelling out ‘Hey Joe—Babe Ruth, Butterfinger, Milky Way’. They were after candy bars, all of them being on the edge of starvation. We were immediately warned not to toss them anything, since the day before about 25 of them had drowned jumping into the water and fighting for the candy.” After they got off the ship they were packed into trucks and driven to the eastern side of Italy, near Foggia.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
McGovern remembered “The very first night I heard a strange noise—it was women— housewives--scratching through the base dump looking for scraps of food.” Despite being known as a pacifist during his political career, he said “Our only course of action with Hitler was to fight—he pushed through Europe and killed millions. I’m glad for the part I played to smash Hitler’s war machine, I have no regrets.” Forty years later McGovern went back to Austria and was being interviewed on TV. They asked if he had any regrets about bombing such beautiful cities. “I said ‘You people in Austria threw in with Hitler, I have no regrets because of that.’ I told about one mission where the crew called and said there was a bomb hung up. We had been carrying ten 500lb. general purpose demolition bombs, and nine had released properly. They kept working on it, and I came down in altitude. I was also having engine trouble anyway. All of a sudden the plane lurched—and I knew the bomb had been released. I looked back, and the bomb had gone down into a

These statements were written by various health care professionals including (we are afraid) a doctor or two at several major hospitals. The lab test indicated abnormal lover function. The baby was delivered, the cord clamped and cut, and handed to the pediatrician, who breathed and cried immediately. Exam of genitalia reveals that
McGovern compared the planes he had the opportunity to fly—“I liked the B-24 Liberator because it would fly farther with a heavier bomb load than any other plane at the time. Later the B-29 Superfortress was better. I did fly the B-17 Flying Fortress, too—it was much easier to fly. You really had to work physically to fly the B-24, eventually it got hydraulic controls that made it easier, but it was hard work to fly.” With all of those missions, one in particular stood out because of the danger he faced. “My closest call was landing my crippled bomber on the Isle of Viz. There was no other place to land and we were
going down. My copilot Bill Rounds knew it had a small landing strip, it was only a 2200 foot runway and the B-24 really needed 5000 feet of runway. My copilot and I rode the brakes hard all the way down the runway, we stopped with about 24 feet left. But we made it and walked away. The plane had to be written off, there was no way it could take off from that short strip. They sent a DC-3 (twin engine C-47 Dakota transport) to pick up the crew and get us back.” McGovern’s war years caused him to reminisce—“That was quite a time in my life, and I still have lots of memories and stories from those years.” Frank Karsh was a bombardier on B-24 Liberators in the Pacific theater. He trained at Langley Field to do low-level bombing against shipping and key targets in Formosa, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. Karsh was based out of Biak, New Guinea, and later Clark Field in the Philippines. "We would actually fly some ‘The B-24 Liberator’ Cont. on Page 3

"We used delayed action fuses, coming in at 500 feet with our planes painted black," he recalled. They found the targets by radar, and once hit an ammo dump that created a fireball they had to fly through. "We were pretty well scorched, extra black," Karsh remembered. They also went on many "search and destroy" missions, and if they didn't find a target, they would drop the bombs on some small island before returning. One time, however, the "island" started firing back--it turned out to be a ship. Robert Schaper was a B-24 copilot and pilot, joining as a cadet in January 1943. Schaper had pilot training while at the University of Minnesota, and joined the Army Air Force but had to wait six months because of a backlog in the pilot training. He was in class 43K at San Antonio, went to Sikeston, Missouri, for primary in PT19’s; Independence, Kansas, for basic in BT-14’s and BT15 instrument flying; and on to Lubbock for advanced in C-78’s. They also flew Curtiss AT-9’s for more instrument practice, graduating in December of 1943. “We were sent to Salt Lake City, supposedly for B-25’s, but they were crewing up B-24’s,” Schaper recalled. “I was assigned as a copilot. We were sent to Pueblo, Colorado, for training as a replacement unit, and were to go from there to Westover, Ms. The orders didn’t come, so we partied for six weeks at Pueblo--about 20 of the Lubbock cadets that were still together.” In April 1944 they were finally sent to Mitchell Field to ferry a brand-new B-24 to England. “We took off in a rainstorm, picked up ice and snow, flew to Bangor, Maine, and then to Goose Bay,” he remembered. “We touched down but couldn’t see over the snow drifts. We flew from Greenland to Iceland at night, and heard a B-17 go down
reserves until 1967. Herman Herdt brought his Navy experience to balance the tables. He arrived in Pearl Harbor in January 1942 and helped repair damaged PBY Catalina seaplanes. Herdt was one of fourteen volunteers to take on bombardier training, learning to use the Norden bomb sight. In October, his squadron received brand new PBY1-D Liberators, the Navy version of the B-24, at Barber’s Point west of Honolulu. Herdt recalled that “due to the heavy losses of bombers our training was cut short and we were ordered to leave for Guadalcanal for combat duty.”
B-24 Liberator 66 15th Air Force, 49th Bomber Wing, 461st Bomber Group, 767th Bomber Squadron in Torretto, Italy. The Bomber was Downed 17 Dec 1944 Adony, Hungary. Pilot 2Lt. Howard E. Munson, Schaper and the rest of the crew were sent by boat and train to a replacement center at Stoke-On-Trent in England. There the crew was split up, with Schaper going to the 68th Squadron, flying 30 missions out of Shiptham. His 17th mission was the most memorable. “Due to a series of screw-ups, we wound up in the lead,” Schaper said. “Our bombardier had slept through the briefing, and didn’t know the primary target, so he picked out his own about three miles past the proper one.” After that mission, he was transferred to the 66th Squadron--“they said they needed one lead, and you’re it.” From that point on, they flew only radar-bombing missions, all over Germany. There was a radar antenna placed where the ball turret had been. Using the radar, they flew their next ten missions in the clouds, and had no problem with fighters. Before that, Schaper said “we were shot up many times, once flak hit the oil tank on our number four engine. It also knocked out our electrical controls. Engines one and two locked at 2200 RPM, and we limped back. A P-51 sat on our wing for a half hour as our ‘security blanket’. We were worried over the North Sea when we saw three planes headed toward us, but it turned out they were ours. We got back to the base, fired off flares, and joined the landing pattern. Everyone in the pattern overshot, but we had to land. We couldn’t go around again. I
we veered off the runway. The plane wasn’t totaled, though.” Another time they were over Metz, France, and supposed to bomb just past the American lines. They were carrying four 1-ton bombs. “We were told not to even open the bomb doors until we passed the lines,” Schaper stated. “They were marked by puffs of AA smoke. Two bombs went out, and we were hit by the front wheel. I couldn’t control it, and we were losing speed with two bombs still not released. The copilot finally sensed something wrong and grabbed the controls. We dropped the last two bombs manually, and made it back.” Schaper’s final three missions came after a promotion to pilot. They were radio relay missions, with up to fourteen radios in the aircraft. On May 18, 1945, he was sent back to the United States by boat, along with a lot of former POW’s. The POW’s were being fed five or six meals a day, since they were emaciated. The meals were being served by German POW’s, obviously well-fed in their stay with the Allied forces. “Fights almost broke out, and there was lots of dirty German language,” Schaper said. It was a wonderful sight as the boat came into New York harbor. After a leave and R&R at Miami Beach, he had to report to a base and attend a few lectures—“just enough to remind me I was still in the AAF.” Schaper stayed in the
When they arrive their designation was changed from VP51 to VP-101. His most memorable mission came on February 12, 1943 off Bougainville Island. “We had nine planes fully armed with bombs and ammunition, and we bombed and sank a large enemy transport and destroyer from 22,000 feet altitude,” Herdt related. The attack alerted the nearby Jap airfield at Kahili on the southern end of the island, and sixty fighters scrambled to meet the Americans. Top cover included Army P38 Lightnings, Navy F6F Hellcats, and the new Marine Corps F4U Corsairs. The ensuing dogfight saw two of the bombers go down along with ten of our fighters--a total of 32 men. There were apparently no survivors. The Japanese lost 26 aircraft in what became known as “the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre.” After seven and a half months of combat, VP-101 was relieved by VB-104, and the crews received the Distinguished Flying Cross for their gallant efforts. Denny Perkins served as a bombardier in the 15th Air Force out of Italy. Most of his 28 missions were as part of a replacement crew—taking the spot of someone injured or killed in a previous flight. Perkins was based at Turreta, a small field southwest of Cerignola. He particularly remembered the dangerous sorties to Vienna, attacking ‘The B-24 Liberator’ Cont. on Page 5
Page 4 - June 21, 2012 Man Attempting to Enter House through Doggie Door Arrested On June 11 at 12:44 p.m., a Carlsbad resident called the police department about a residential burglary in progress. The resident told police a man attempted to enter the house located in the 7700 block of Palacio through the doggie door. The resident heard the doggie door and saw the man, causing the man to flee. The resident chased the man down the street and called the police department on a cell phone. Numerous police officers and ASTREA, the Sheriff’s department helicopter, combed the area following leads from residents. An additional resident reported that just after this incident a similar man walked into their house located in the 2200 block of Recodo Court through the front door. The resident further reported the man claimed to need help. The resident chased the man from the house.
Local News At 2:16 p.m. Carlsbad police made the first arrest and by 7:36 p.m. Carlsbad police had booked two suspects into the Vista Detention Facility. Arrested were 19 year old John Kerr of Carlsbad for 460(A) PC, burglary and 19 year old Ryan Rodriguez of Encinitas for 11350 H&S, possession of a controlled substance. “This is an example of great teamwork,” stated Police Lieutenant Paul Mendes. “This incident shows the connection between residents identifying suspicious activity and making phone calls that aid effective police response.”

chemical plants and oil refineries in missions that lasted up to nine hours. “I really appreciated our experienced navigators who brought the planes through an area of northern Italy where there were no flak guns,” he stated. His planes had several close calls— three times returning with one engine out, and once with two engines out. One time they were hit in the number 3 engine, and it took twenty minutes to get the runaway propeller under control. His crew even lost a gunner due to faulty oxygen, and from that point on they regularly did an oxygen check every five minutes. There was an emergency airstrip located on a small island to help disabled aircraft. It was so small that the instructions were for the crew to bail out, and then the pilot and copilot would try to land the plane. He recalled one mission to a small town in Italy where an aircraft parts manufacturing plant was located. The target
was small, right in the midst of the picturesque town. The plant was hit with minimal damage to the surrounding houses and buildings. While he was relating this story to me, a woman who had been listening came up and said she had lived in that small town. As a little girl she watched the bombing raid and was so thankful the rest of the town was not destroyed—she even gave Perkins a hug! Perkins also recalled the wild V-E Day celebrations, and said that “most soldiers were interested in figuring out who had ‘high points’—those who would get to go home first.”

The funds raised will be donated to local charities that support the Soroptimist mission of improving the lives of women and girls. A total of 15 percent of ticket sales— almost $1000—was donated directly to the Breast Cancer Fund. Event sponsors included Tri-City Hospital, which contributed $1000, and Always There Home Care Inc. which donated $250, and approximately 32 others. The $20 ticket price included a pre-show reception outside the theater, where guests enjoyed a variety of appetizers and beverages, all of which were donated by local businesses and restaurants. Additional monies were raised by gift baskets, a “money bra” and other auction items. The audience viewed nine short films written by women, with a brief intermission during which the raffle winners were announced. “Great camaraderie, thought-provoking films, all fun,” said one attendee, Jacque McKelvey of Carlsbad. “The films were funny and sad, inspirational and motivational,” said Cherie Wilson. “Some of my friends are still talking about the impact they had on them.”

Escondido Gets 55 New Stop Signs The city of Escondido has responded to the concerns of four different neighborhoods by installing dozens of new stop signs by virtue of a plan unanimously approved last week by the City Council. A total of 55 stop signs will be distributed in Old Escondido, the historic district south of downtown, and in three West Side/South Tulip neighborhoods within the perimeters of I-15, Centre City Parkway, Felicita Avenue and Valley Parkway. This all as a result of many complaints, meeting with residents and doing an analysis of data collected in the areas named. Several Old Escondido resi-
This past Tuesday a “People’s Town Hall Meeting” was held in the Mitchell Room of Escondido’s City Hall. Billed as a meeting open to all, it is a response to a townhall meeting held by Mayor Sam Abed in March. Some participants at that meeting felt they were not given a proper opportunity to speak and express their questions and concerns. Kimber Allison, chairwoman of the organizing group said there was a lot of frustraton among community members who attended Abed’s meeting. Mayor Abed and all Council members had been invited to attend. Abed, however, had indicated he would not attend. As the meeting was held after our press deadline we will report on the results in next week’s issue. New Technology Makes it Tough to be a Tagger The risk of getting caught has increased substantially so taggers and gangbangers are backing off their tagging activities. It still occurs, but not with the frequency it used to, as word is on the street that the odds of getting caught are now much higher. The county’s Board of Supervisors launched a regional pilot project to combat graffiti. A tracking sysem has been devised that allows law enforcemtn to link incidents to each other across jurisdictions, with impressive results. Through “Graffiti Tracker” authorities are often able to monitor areas and styles of graffiti that point to the likely culprit. In one case, in Imperial Beach, a tagger was caught, prosecuted and pleaded guilty with restitution and had to pay $87,018 to the city of Imperial Beach. In addition, he was sentenced to a year in jail and five years probation.
Graffiti Tracker is a Webbased intelligence sharing and analysis service that allows photographs and locations of graffiti incidents to be submitted into a national database. The system uses expensive cameras equipped with Global Positioning components. Reports are then generated that include information and statistics regarding the name or group moniker and location and size of incidents.
Vista Village Drive in Vista about 1:30 p.m., and finished up back in Poway, where he robbed a U.S. Bank on Poway Road about 3 p.m. Each time, he handed a demand note to a teller and said he was armed. He got money from all the banks, the FBI said.
When confronted with many examples of their crime, the offender will usually plead guilty to a lesser number and be ordered to pay restitution — a penalty that a juvenile’s parents could be forced to pay. Judges have also been sentencing prolific taggers to jail. Before 2011, Graffiti Tracker was used by three law enforcement agencies in the county: Escondido police (which started using it in 2006), Oceanside police (2007), and the Sheriff’s Department (2009). Ten other agencies began using the system in 2011, and last year more than 82,000 incidents of graffiti/tagging were entered into the system. That’s an average of 226 per day. Another example: During a routine contact in San Marcos with deputies, a juvenile’s car was searched and a notebook was found containing the moniker “SOES.” Through Graffiti Tracker the moniker was linked to 28 graffiti incidents in San Marcos, Vista and Escondido. The juvenile has admitted his guilt and restitution of about $10,000 is being sought. Bank Robber Hits Three North County Banks in One Day He wore the same blue windbreaker, blue ball cap and blue jeans when he held up three North County banks on Friday, the FBI said. The robber, a white man who appeared to be in his 60s, started in Poway when he demanded cash from a teller at Chase bank on Poway Road about 9:30 a.m. That was only the first. He then hit the U.S. Bank on
Friday at Chase bank in Poway. — Courtesy of the FBI He was about 5 feet 9 inches tall, 225 pounds, had a scruffy beard. He wore glasses, a light-colored T-shirt, and his ball cap had a “C” on the front, possibly the Chicago Cubs logo. He left the first bank in a dark sedan. Wife of Oceanside Chief of Police Convicted Brinda McCoy, 49, wife of current Oceanside Chief of Police, was convicted on five counts of assault on a police officer for firing a gun from the couples Cypress home during a 2010 standoff. She was also convicted of discharging a firearm with gross negligence. The case, heard in Santa Ana, will open again on September 10th, when she will be sentenced. She faces up to 29 years in prison. The incident occurred in Cypress, in Orange County, where the McCoys have their primary home. Her husband, Frank, has headed up the Oceanside Police Department since 2006 Mayor Jim Wood, a former police officer, has said the city will not relieve Chief McCoy but is aware he may opt to leave to address his family situation. Woods has dined with McCoy and his wife and

‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 National Guard where he managed to identify internal fraud and shut it down, thereby saving the government (you and I) tons of money. “My father is like so many of our Fathers who fought in WWII or the Korean War who came from humble beginings and seized the moment to do great things. He got left behind to farm all the farms around his home town (the size of 3 city blocks, at best) during WWII so when Korea came he was the first one in. He went in as a NCO but when they realized his mental and organizational skills, they switched him to officer's training. He eventually became a brigadier general and was the first General who also flew for United Airlines. We were based in California at the time. The 146th is a C130 group, they have since been relocated to Point Magu. As you know... without the courage and determination of that generation, we'd all be speaking German right now. My father turned 89 on the 12th and I always am proud to
honor him for both his leadership when our country needed it, and his dedication to developing me into a responsible young American. His family was so poor that they sometimes had to use the leather of shoes to help make a soup, and his mother, my grandmother Hurt, would ride on the horse and guide it in the fields while his father, Arthur, would handplow the fields. She rode that horse up to the day that she delivered Oscar. Everyone who went through the depression can tell similar stories. But... everyone came together when we were threatened. Everyone sacrificed, everyone helped each other... THAT'S A GREAT NATION!” The Man About Town agrees. We’ve got it pretty soft. I had a great-uncle who was a pioneer in Talkeetna, Alaska. When I drove the roads he used to walk into town, from his homestead, carrying a load of roof shingles on his shoulders, I marveled at how he could do it. Yep, our life today is a bed of roses compared to the pioneers.

Carlsbad School Girls Awarded $4.5 million in Molestation Case Two elementary school girls in Carlsbad were awarded at total of $4.5 million by a jury as the result of a case against their elementary school teacher. The jury found the teacher guilty and the district guilty of being negligent in supervising the teacher. The girls sued the teacher, Raymond Firth, as well as the district. The first girl was awarded $1.8 million, the second girl, who suffered more abuse, was awarded $2.7 million. Having been found 40% responsible for negligence, the district will pay about $2 million if the award stands. This Dog, Rescued From a Kill Shelter, is Now Up for Adoption

City Council to vote on $64 million balanced budget on June 26
From 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. the History Center will be open and there will be children's arts projects. Last but definitely not least, fireworks will begin at approximately 9:00 p.m. A variety of refreshments will be available for purchase.
The San Marcos City Council will vote on a $64.2 million operating budget at its June 26 meeting. The budget covers costs for law enforcement, fire protection, parks, planning, public works and general city administration for fiscal year 2012-2013.
The event is generously sponsored by the Linden Root Dickinson Foundation, the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, and the City of Escondido, Please note: BBQs, alcohol, pets, and tall chairs should not be brought to the park.
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Last week, San Diego turned a page on a difficult chapter in its financial history when the City Council passed my budget, the first structurally-balanced budget our city has seen in decades.
Our projections show that the City of San Diego is on sound financial footing for the future as well, with a projected $119 million in surplus over the next five years. This means the next Mayor should be able to restore even more services. This is contrast with Los Angeles and San Francisco, that are both dealing with large deficits.
After years of belt tightening, this budget, for the 2013 fiscal year, finally sees us restoring services, like police and fire academies, library and rec center hours, and infrastructure repairs, particularly street resurfacing.
The Council has been a supportive partner through many difficult financial decisions during my term. I want to thank them for their hard work. After years of reform, the City of San Diego’s financial future looks much brighter.

I hope you will take the time to bring the family downtown to enjoy this worthwhile and fun event running from 4 to 7 pm. The summer season at the Moonlight Amphitheatre also
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond
begins on June 27 with the premier of Legally Blonde, the Musical. This season, the new café called the Artisan Café, will be serving up new menu items during the Moonlight’s summer season. Chef Dave Krohn and his team are introducing an entirely new culinary experience for guests. Pre-show dinner menus and ordering information, along with all of the other new offerings from the Artisan Café and ticket information are available at moonightstage.com. Whatever you plan to do this summer, I hope you and your family have a safe, relaxing, and happy one.
The city will close this year with close to a $3 million savings in expenditures. Most of this comes as a result of newly negotiated employee compensation programs, which represent almost half of the general fund’s total budget. Needless to say, major restructuring of the employee compensation program and pension benefits during this fiscal year significantly contributed to the overall health of the general fund and
cost containment in the future. Other cost savings occurred in development services, public safety and personnel. Major repairs to city facilities that can no longer be deferred will appear in next year’s budget, including muchneeded repairs to City Hall, Woodland Park Pool and various gymnasium repairs. Thankfully, we have been able to maintain the level of service expected by San Marcos citizens without drastic measures like employee layoffs, furloughs or elimination of certain programs or services. These types of measures are not envisions in the foreseeable future, either. The City Council looks at every line
and scrutinizes ways that we can save the taxpayer and we’re proud to report that we are looking at balanced budget for the next three years.

The Apple Phenomenon Technology or Snake Oil: Part I Apple is arguably the most interesting and perhaps most polarizing corporation in the world today. Most profitable, most valuable in terms of market capitalization and most visible, it thrills its fans and confounds its detractors. Apple Computer users have been rabid evangelists for Apple computer products and a like number of PC Geeks are equally passionate in sneering at what they consider Apples over-hyped, overpriced products. The polarization has spread to the smart phones and tablets where Apple currently competes, not with Microsoft but Google’s Android based products. Passions run high
Apple accepts its role as a minor player in the personal computer market and has turned to “cash cowing” its loyal but single digit PC market share in order to focus its resources on the faster growing smart phone and tablet technologies. In these rapidly growing markets Apple has seen its share of the smart phone business fall from nearly 80% to just over 20% in the past two years as Android technology has eclipsed Apples early advantage. Apple’s 60% share of the tablet business is holding firm over the rival Android based tablets but there is an elephant in the wings. Microsoft is aiming to leverage its dominance in the world of personal computers into a dominant position in tablets and smart phones. It is going to be a very interesting battle between the three giants, Microsoft, Apple and Google and one that is dead certain to affect the profitability of all three. It would seem that Apple might be most vulnerable.
over-reaching eulogies to the departed Jobs. While it is proper to speak well of the dead, time now permits a less emotional and perhaps more enlightening view of events. Steve Jobs and Wosniak founded Apple Computer in 1976. Apple grew rapidly to become a one billion company by 1983. Jobs decided Apple needed a CEO with “big company” experience so in 1985 Jobs brought in Mike Scully from PepsiCo. Scully and Jobs didn’t get along and when Jobs attempted a “palace coup” to dethrone Scully the following year, the plot backfired and the board stripped Jobs of his power. Jobs quit in a snit, sold his Apple stock, bought Pixar and started a new company (NeXt).
Over the next ten years, the frantic growth in the personal computer industry propelled Apple’s rapid growth even as they’re share of the PC market dropped from 20% to 5%. In 1995 Apple sales peaked at $11 billion and began to slip. Apple then bought Jobs and his struggling company (NeXt) and by the summer of 1997, Jobs was back in charge at Apple. With Jobs firmly in control, Apple stumbled along posting losses in four of the next seven years with annual sales around $6 billion. Then, in 2004, things began to change. To be continued.
To guess where Apple is going requires an understanding of how they got where they are today. Since his death in 2011, much of what has been written about Steve Jobs and Apple have been

Gimmick-Filled Budget Crafted in Secret Last week, the Democrat majority passed a gimmick-filled budget which assumes approval of an $8 billion sales and income tax increase by the voters in November. The budget was largely put together behind closed doors and contained zero input from Republicans. The Democrats made every effort to deceive the public into believing that the budget was crafted during the months-long budget sub-committee process but that’s far from the truth. In fact, during budget hearings the day before the bill passed, the
Democrat budget chairman admitted that he did not know what was in the budget bill. The Governor’s own budget experts, the Department of Finance, agreed that some of the bill language had not yet been completed. While the Democrat’s budget and their talking points are full of distortions, numbers never lie. Of their $16.2 billion in solutions to the deficit, 93% ($15 billion) are taxes and gimmicks with the remaining 7% ($1 billion) actual spending reductions. The simple truth is that this budget relies on schemes, fund shifts and phony revenue projections.

Mea culpa. A Fan With Questions Dear Mr. Editor/Lyle E. Davis. Me and my wife have a friendly wager, her favorite restaurant vs. mine, so please answer the following three questions for us. 1. Did your publication use to be the old San Marcos paper? 2. Do you fly airplanes? 3. Were you a journalist in the U.S. Army? We are avid fans of your paper! Best to you and your fine, fine newspaper, Mr. Davis. Your article on Craig Peyer was one of the best we've read. What an ‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. on Page 15
a great improvement over these other systems when it comes to discomfort and time. The system has eliminated the pre-treatment preparation of surrounding tissues (30 minutes) by using a specially designed tray made to prevent the gel from coming in contact with them, and it incorporates medications designed to prevent the sensitivity some experience from the other … so the post treatment application of topicals (20 minutes) is unnecessary as well. Finally, the LED light eliminates the possible overheating of the teeth themselves! Sinsational Smiles suggests that you light activate the gel for 20 minutes but we can vary that based on our patient’s response rate. We’ve found 20 minutes to be pretty accurate for most of our patients, but on a couple cases having hard to lighten teeth, we’ve gone an additional 10 minutes, and the results have been excellent. 30 minutes is a great improvement over an hour and a half! Finally, even though
there is the cost of buying a new light for this new system, the cost of the materials is less than the Zoom System we’ve been using, so we are able to offer the “laser” whitening to our patients for a lower fee! Our patients leave our practice actually looking younger, feeling better, and all in 20 – 30 minutes, which is 1/3 the treatment time they’ve experienced in the past. Isn’t competition and technology just great?! We suspect there will be more of these new “laser” whitening systems coming out soon, but for now, the Sinsational Smile Treatments are keeping our patients happy and saving both of us a lot of time and money. Like Zoom, there is the possibility that Sinsational Smiles may raise their prices for the purchase of their lightening kits as their popularity and success grows (at least until more competitors come on the market), but for now, we’re actually able to offer the system at about half the cost of the Zoom or other Whitening Systems!
New Patient Introductory Offer: $199 initial Sinsational Whitening with option to have “renewable smile” treatments for $99 after regular cleanings for a period of 2 years (depending on availability) Special Offer: For New Patients: Through June 29th - $150 off of Non-Metal Ceramic Crowns

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

‘Letter to the Editor’ Cont. from Page 13
exclusive story. And to be able to interview the victim's family was amazing. On a side note, we met one of your writers, Fredrick Gomez at the Escondido public library. Most Sincerely, James , Escondido, California. Editor’s Note: 1. Yes, The Paper was formerly known as "The San Marcos News Reporter." Owner was Bill Willoughby; his associate publisher sold it to us in 1999 when Bill had a stroke and the paper went dark for about six weeks. 2. I am a licensed pilot, ASL (Airplane, Single Engine). My license, however, is not active. I have not flown as pilot-in-command for, probably, about 20 years. 3. Yes, I was a journalist in the US Army as well as Entertainment Director for Brooke Army Hospital, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. However, I served as a war correspondent as a civilian during 1967 and 1968 in S. Vietnam. When I originally left the Army, I was an enlisted man. As a civilian correspondent I was given an assimilated grade/rank equivalent to a Lt. Colonel. Lt. Colonels live better and eat better than an enlisted man. (I did, however, make it a point to eat chow with Army and Marines in the field in their mess tent . . . occasionally dining at the Officer's Mess. I got more good stories from the Enlisted Men's Mess). 4. Frederick Gomez is a brilliant writer and has written a number of cover stories for us. I know him fairly well, have had him as a guest in our home on several occasions and have dined out with him an equal number of times. Lyle E. Davis, Editor of The Paper. Thank you sir for the surprising answers! Guess my wife won fair and square as she had most of the answers correct. I don't mind losing to her because her choice in restaurants serves me just fine. Also thanks for the info on Fredrick Gomez. I truly admire you for acquiring Fredrick Gomez as a close friend. Maybe envy is a more accurate word. We wish we could trade places with you. By the way, thanks for your military service, Mr. Davis. Veterans are to be treasured. We continue to look forward to each and every new edition of your paper. Most Sincerely, James Finlay, Escondido, California. Letters to the Editor are always welcome. Normally, we prefer them to be limited to 250 words but we retain the discretion for longer emails.
