by Frank Lorey III As part of the 50th anniversary of the Korean War, a group of five pilots and crewmen got together to discuss aspects of fighting the war in Korea in the air. Gathered together were three fighter pilots, representing both jet and prop planes used, a bomber gunner, and a transport pilot. Bud Mahurin was already one of the top American aces of World War II, having flown P-51 Mustangs with the 56th Fighter Group in Europe, before flying the F86 Sabre in Korea. He gained another three and a half victories against Migs before getting shot down and becoming a POW. “I was with the 51st Fighter Wing, on what was supposed to be temporary duty of 90 days,” Mahurin recalled. His wing commander was another top ace from World War II— Francis Gabreski. Mahurin felt that the tactics used in Korea were much like the last war, with the F-86 serving as a barrier between the Migs and the more vulnerable F-84 Thunderstreak, much like the Mustang served as a barrier between the enemy and American bombers. One large difference was evident in the enemy tactics, as Mahurin remembered that North Korea’s “air war was actually controlled from the ground—an air controller—so there was a lack of initiative for the North Korean pilots. F86 pilots thought it was like ‘duck soup’ to go against Migs. They were so controlled they were relatively easy pickings.” The Paper - 760.747.7119

The Sabres would go up in groups of 24-36 jets, head for the Yalu River, and watch for the Migs. “The Migs actually flew better, they were faster and more maneuverable,” Mahurin said, adding, “pilot ability was the difference.” Many times they chased Migs to the Manchurian border, and then had to turn back. Mahurin also stated that he “was shot down everywhere I went.” His experience as a POW was miserable, and he

mentioned that “fortunately only a few had to experience it first hand.” Mahurin spent 16 months in solitary confinement. On a later tour of Korea, he got to see the same buildings at the 38th Parallel where negotiations had gone on during the war. They are still being used occasionally for the same purpose. Mahurin felt the Sabre was “the finest airplane I’ve flown,

it was beautiful.” He said the Mig-15 was “well constructed, a good flying machine, and very durable.” For a Sabre pilot, it was “a lot to handle, and I should know—I tried many times to pop a few.” Dick Pegg also flew the F-86 Sabre in Korea, but had most of his experience there in the F-84 Thunderstreak. He joined the Air Force in 1949, and had just finished basic training when Korea started. He was sent to Williams Field

He became a flight instructor, then was assigned to gunnery school in F-80 Shooting Stars and the F-84. With only one and a half hours in the F-84, he was sent to Korea. Once there, Pegg did receive another six hours of training before being sent into his first combat. “My first mission was on Thanksgiving Day, 1952,” Pegg said, adding that he flew “100 missions, about half interdiction and half close air support for front line troops.” They were mostly after North Korean bridges and supply caravans. On the F-84 missions, F-86 Sabres were usually flying cover about

“When they spotted Migs, they dropped their tanks and we had to dodge them,” Pegg remembered. He saw several Migs destroyed, spinning down to the earth. “We didn’t have time to think, once I just missed a person in a parachute, another time I missed a Mig going down, and another time it was an F-84 that had a wing blown off.” A typical mission against the enemy front line troops would be 30-40 minutes from take off to the action. They frequently would drop napalm on the enemy divisions, then fly right back. So many missions were flown in a day that they would just sit in the aircraft, getting refueled and rearmed, and then go right back up.

When the F-86 was loaded with two 1000-lb. bombs, they required JATO bottles for take off. At 75 degrees outside temperature, it took one JATO bottle, while at 80 degrees it took two for take off. Pegg recalled getting hit about twenty times in the F84, about two times that the aircraft was severely damaged.

As Pegg put it—“occasionally we could go out on the wing and relieve ourselves, and occasionally a sandwich was

His experience in the F-86 Sabre involved getting sent out to go after Migs. Pegg recalled that “I engaged them twice, getting behind one and

He also added that he “never forgot the cold— it was the coldest place I’ve ever been in my life. We had contrails at 20,000 feet, snow up to the wingtips at times. It was stinky weather, and a lot of losses were due to the weather.”

chipping off pieces of his wing.” Two Migs also attacked him one time, and the 30-mm. Cannon fire “looked like oranges coming at you.” He did not get hit, but watched as the shells went right by him. They had been told that “Migs couldn’t dive with us and they couldn’t go too far south, so if we got into trouble we were to dive and head south.” Dick Quiel had the unique experience of flying the propdriven F4U Corsair fighter in Korea, after having flown it during World War II. As he put it, “I am one of the few who faced both Zeros and Migs in combat.” He had plenty of opportunities in combat against both enemy aircraft. Quiel also flew the F4F Wildcat, F6F Hellcat, and F8F Bearcat, so he was quite experienced in the Navy’s pre-jet age fighters. His career started in 1940 while ‘The Air War’ Cont. on Page 3 1. I don’t like grits. Where To Eat Tonight A group of 15-year old boys discussed where they should meet for dinner. It was agreed they should meet at the Dairy Queen next to the Ocean View restaurant because they only had $6.00 between them and Jennie Johnson, that cute girl in Social Studies, lives on that street and they might see her and they can ride their bikes there. Ten years later, the group of 25-year-old guys discussed where they should meet for dinner. It was agreed they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the beer was cheap, they had free snacks, the band was good, there was no cover, and there were lots of cute girls.

‘The Air War’ Cont. from Page 2 he was busy building P-38 Lightnings at Lockheed and received his notice and signed up with the Navy. He flew with VF-113 and got into many engagements such as flying air support at Okinawa. He wound up with six victories to become an ace. Quiel was at Eniwetok when the bomb dropped, and spent the final few weeks flying “show of force” flights over Japan and its territories, coming back to the states in September 1945. After two years serving on the U.S.S. Midway off the East Coast, Quiel joined the regular Navy and went to college. Right out of college, he was ordered to report to Korea, serving on two carriers flying close air support missions. “We went down to Pusan, but we didn’t always know where the bad guys were and our guys were,” Quiel remarked. Sometimes the bombs and rockets landed in the wrong places. They regularly carried eight of the 5-inch HVAR rockets and one 500lb. bomb on the Corsairs. “Most of our work was done at low altitudes, about 1000 feet,” recalled Quiel. He once thought he was shooting a rocket at a truck while flying at 400 feet, but found he had dropped his bomb accidentally. The bomb landed in a rice paddy, and the shrapnel was absorbed so that no holes wound up in his plane. Quiel also flew support for the Inchon landings off the U.S.S. Intrepid, alongside F9F-2 Panther which had to be stripped of armor to be able to use the underpowered catapults. The jets could only go out for missions of up to one hour, forty minutes. The Corsairs were flying lowlevel support along the Yalu River, not getting above 1500 feet. Some were also used for AA suppression missions in

the same vicinity, and against enemy troop movements. “We took two anti-personnel bombs on flights of eight planes,” Quiel remembered, adding that “dropping ‘daisycutter’ bombs on the troops killed a lot of people, often there would be a hundred-foot circle of red in the snow.” It was still a memory that was painful for him to recall over fifty years later. When they flew low alongside the river, they were told to ignore the AA-fire, with no evasive maneuvers allowed. Quiel also commented on the extreme cold, and the effect on guns. The gun heaters often had broken wires, so many of the guns would go out of order in the cold. Quiel did see Migs up close and personal, when they were flying at 18,000 feet on one mission. The Migs were at 30,000 feet, and the Corsair pilots just watched as they charged their guns and began to dive. He related that the Migs “dove fast, made one pass, and disappeared, after firing their cannons from a long distance and not hitting anyone.” The Corsairs were on a divebombing mission, and after the excitement wore off they went ahead and set up at a 45degree angle, dropped their bombs, and went home. One time they were called to provide gun support of the big 16-inch guns of the battleship U.S.S. Missouri. “We picked out targets along the coast, mostly small wooden buildings and small boats, and could see the 16-inch shells come through the air,” he recalled. Their job was to call out whether each volley was long or short, and to shift left or right. “Most of the fire was not doing any good, just making holes in the ground,” he added. Quiel had one close call on a “wrecking hop” when he saw troops on the ground and pushed over from 3,000 feet at a distance of two miles. He fired his 20-mm cannons, and as he pulled up got hit by

ground fire. Badly leaking oil, he barely made it back to the ship, where it was discovered that he had actually been hit by his own 20-mm. shells as they ricocheted back from the frozen ground, leaving holes the size of a quarter in his Corsair. Don Petrovich had a different view of the air war as a gunner on a B-29 Superfortress bomber. He had joined the Air National Guard in 1947 while still in high school, and got to fly along in A-26 Invaders. “I asked for a job as a gunner, but the military was rather lax, as the planes had no machine guns or bullets,” Petrovich remembered. The whole time that he was in the ANG he never even worked a gun or turret. While in college, Petrovich joined the Air Force ROTC and flew in aging B-25 Mitchells and C-47 Dakotas. In June, 1950, he was called to report to Halloran AFB because of the start of the Korean War. He was the youngest guy in his unit—all of the others were World War II veterans. From Halloran, Petrovich went to gunnery school at Davis-Monthan in Tucson, AZ. He finally got to fire from a turret, although it was mounted on a track on the ground so that it would move. It was enough to earn him gunner’s wings, and an assignment to B-29 Superfortresses. After ten transition flights, and still no aerial gunnery practice, he was assigned to the crew of Mike Ward, 37, a pilot with combat experience against Japan. “I loaded up my gear, flew to Johnston Island, and then on to Japan,” Petrovich recalled. They were then sent to Kadena, Okinawa, to begin flying combat missions every three days. As he remembered, the other two days were always filled with “the excitement of fighting mosquitoes, reading books, and staying

in my tent to keep out of the rain.” Occasionally, they would receive passes to go into town and drink beer. Petrovich served a tour of one year, plus a three-month extension, during the Korean War. His assigned B-29 Superfortress went by the name of “South Seas Sinner.” The usual mission called for the B-29’s to fly to the Yalu River and bomb bridges from 22,000 feet. “We couldn’t fly over China, just had to fly straight down the river and drop the bombs in salvo, and hope that one or two hit the bridge,” Petrovich said. “We could see fighters just out of our .50 caliber range, but they could fire their cannons at you, though,” he added. An interesting development occurred when the machine guns were loaded without tracers, however. The Mig pilots thought that the B-29’s were out of ammo since they could not observe tracer fire, so they moved in closer. Petrovich finally had a target to shoot at, and on his third mission actually got 1/3 credit for a Mig. The B-29s would go out in three groups of nine planes each, forming up over the China Sea. It took about an hour to form up, then they flew a little over 600 miles each way to the target and back. “It was just form up, fly to bridge, miss bridge, fly home—over and over,” as Petrovich remembered. They were losing too many planes, so they began to fly night missions, which certainly did not improve accuracy. “We used radar, flying one arc to the intersection with another arc, then dropping the bombs,” Petrovich said. “We couldn’t see what got hit, and probably blew up a lot of rice.” They never even saw an enemy aircraft at night.

Page 4 - March 29, 2012 Escondido City Employees Rally at City Hall The Escondido Police Officers’ Association (EPOA) are asking the Escondido City Council to do the right thing and restore all city employee’s pay and benefits, which have been deferred or frozen for the past three years in an effort to balance the city’s budget. EPOA President Michael Garcia said he was shocked and appalled when he discovered that City Manager Clay Phillips gave raises to nine of the city’s top managers. The pay hikes went to employees with annual salaries of more than $100,000, ranging from 9 to 24.3 percent. City Mayor Sam Abed has said they needed to pay key players competitively in order to retain them. But, Garcia asks, what about retaining police officers and firefighters, the men and women who protect the citizens of Escondido? What about other key city employees who provide vital infrastructure services, such as,

Local News water, sewer, roads, engineering, etc.? The Escondido Police Department has lost officers already to other departments where they receive better pay and better benefits, Garcia said. If compensation and benefits are not restored, he believes more officers will be lost. “The EPOA supports the idea that the city needs to provide marketplace competitive pay and benefits in order to retain the best employees,” Garcia said. However, pay raises must be administered to priority personnel and that includes linelevel employees. Garcia said, “We believe all city employees deserve to have their frozen or deferred pay and benefits restored.” “The EPOA is not asking for any new raises, albeit our officers are some of the lowest paid in the County of San Diego,” Garcia said. “The EPOA has been negotiating with the city to return compensation and benefits that were frozen or deferred - only in order to keep Most recently, we bumped into retired Dr. Ken Manell, and his wife, Janet, at Mission Hills Church in San Marcos.

Petrovich did recall missions that blew up a railroad yard, oil depot, and an attempt to hit an airport. “We were using the Norden bombsight, set for 2000-lb. bombs when we actually had 100-pounders, and of course missed—the closest was about a quarter-mile short,” he stated.

“The C-124 did a marvelous job, even though it had no guns for defense,” he said. The Globemaster II was one of a number of transports used during the war that received little notice from the press and public for their contribution to the war effort.

Don Faulhaber felt fortunate not to run into any Migs, as he was the pilot of a C-124 Globemaster II. The jumbo transport would have been too large a target to miss. He was part of two squadrons sent between Japan and Korea to be used mostly as troop transports, carrying up to 200 soldiers each. They could also carry up to 40,000 pounds of cargo. “It was a lot of airplane—I once took 16 jeeps in one load,” Faulhaber recalled. He got to Korea near the end of the war in 1952, and stayed for two years of transport service, also Low back pain can be a crippling experience.

Commentary

FEAF (Far East Air Forces) grew from a force of 33,625 personnel in June 1950, to nearly 112,200 officers and airmen in July 1953. At its highest point, in the summer of 1952, FEAF controlled 20 groups, 70 squadrons, and 1,441 aircraft.

By the time you read this, the Escondido City Council will have met in closed session to discuss actions taken by the Escondido City Manager, Clay Phillips, that has caused a sense of outrage locally which echoes the sentiment sweeping this entire country: “the government is not listening to us!”

During the war, FEAF units flew 720,980 sorties and delivered 476,000 tons of ordnance. For these numbers FEAF estimated it had killed nearly 150,000 North Korean and Chinese troops and claimed the destruction of more than 975 aircraft, 800 bridges, 1,100 tanks, 800 locomotives, 9,000 railroad cars, 70,000 motor vehicles, and 80,000 buildings. This damage was inflicted at the cost of 1,841 men killed, wounded and missing, and 750 aircraft destroyed by the enemy.

Clay Phillips parceled out$204,000 in raises to department heads at a time when lower level city staff members and members of the police and fire departments were being asked for significant wage, benefit and pension concessions; at a time when the city officials were in the midst of what is laughing-

What, if anything, can be done to restore the faith of the city workers in their leadership, and how long it might take to re-establish that trust is a major question and obstacle. A greater question looms: how long will it take the general public, the electorate, to trust their city government and its elected leaders? While the city of Escondido now has a balanced budget, as promised by Mayor Sam Abed and his council majority, it also has a major issue of trust on its hands.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 Department and Mexican Police authorities continue to improve. Chemical Spill at Escondido Water Treatment Plant At approximately 3:30 p.m., on Monday, a tank failure at the Escondido Water Treatment Plant caused the accidental release of 15,000 gallons of a 20% solution of sodium hydroxide, also known as caustic soda. The liquid traveled down a paved roadway and then onto a dirt area where it has been contained. The spill did not affect the city’s drinking water supply in any way, nor were there any injuries or any need for evacuation of the surrounding area. The San Diego County HazMat Team is working with Escondido officials to develop a remediation plan for the affected area. Carlsbad City Manager Gets Raise Carlsbad's city manager, Lisa Hildabrand, has received a

raise of $13,000 as of late 2011 which brings her annual base salary up to $230,492. This comes six months after the city’s lowest paid employees had their wages frozen and their pension payments increased under a two-year contract arrangement. The city's 118 management employees collected a 3 percent raise in December, and the city attorney is proposed to get a 7 percent raise. Hildabrand was hired in 2008. Until December, her base salary had remained unchanged at $217,200 a year, city Communications Director Kristina Ray said Monday.

Like all our pups, Jillian has been spayed and microchipped. Microchip registration is included. Her vaccines and rabies certificate are all up to date.

Letters to the Editor Dear editor: I enjoy The Paper and look forward to Thursdays to read it. I particularly enjoy the feature stories. I probably would not notice them in a book or regular newspaper but I read every word of them in The Paper and learn from each of them. Regarding "Silverback Mountain Gorillas" I found it interesting that "guides told us if we got attacked by red ants the best action to take was strip off all our clothes as quickly as possible." Could they climb a

You cannot have been ignorant of this story when the paper went to press. The entire section was in poor taste under normal circumstances.

Actually, I did not finish reading it, it was not worth reading. OMG, this one fell so short of the usual quality. It is unfortunate, because the subject itself was excellent and I would have loved to learn something.

Each year since 2006, between April and September, Neighborhood Services Division holds free cleanups for organized neighborhood groups in CDBG eligible areas within the City’s core. To date there are 15 organized neighborhood groups in Escondido. These cleanups provide a great benefit to Escondido as a whole by improving the overall appearance and cleanliness of the City. During these cleanups, neighbor-

hood residents work together to clean up trash and debris from alleys, front yards, streets and gutters; dramatically changing the appearance of their neighborhoods. Neighborhood Services provides the dumpsters, trash bags and pickers and the residents do the rest! Events like these are a great opportunity for residents in Escondido’s core to come together to clean up the City’s image, one neighborhood at a time. Thus, we all benefit from a cleaner Escondido! If you would like more information about Neighborhood Cleanups or Neighborhood Services, contact Rich Buquet, Neighborhood Services manager at (760) 839-4579 or rbuquet@escondido.org.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Keeping Citizens Up to Date One of my key priorities is ensuring the city works as efficiently and transparently as possible. With a new Web feature I’ve proposed, San Diegans will be able to track the status, cost and schedule of city infrastructure projects with a simple click of a mouse. Under my proposal, which the City Council will consider next week, the city’s Website will host information that enables the public to track the progress of more than 950 active infrastructure projects like street repairs, power-line undergrounding and watermain replacements. This new feature would be available for citizens in May.

The proposal before Council next Tuesday also includes a series of reforms designed to streamline the process of bidding out and completing these infrastructure projects – meaning fewer bureaucratic barriers to getting vital city construction jobs done in a timely manner. Last July, my office instituted reforms to streamline the city’s bidding process, allowing projects to move twice as quickly to the construction phase. Under those reforms, we hired a contracts program manager and reorganized city staff under the Public Works Department.

By adopting my capital improvements reforms, the City Council will help ensure faster delivery of needed infrastructure upgrades

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter The San Diego C o u n t y Sheriff’s Start Smart Program is a program the City of Vista fully embraces.

The two-hour class is an opportunity for new drivers and their parents to clearly understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to drive. The class is taught by trained law enforcement personnel and creates awareness of possible consequences, both financial and physical, of distracted or impaired driving, and provides applicable information about collision prevention. The class also clarifies the restrictions of the Provisional License Law. According to the

trainers, the often-graphic videos and daunting statistics provide a powerful reality check that lingers long after the classroom instruction. This San Diego County Sheriff’s program is a concerted effort across our region intended to reduce the risks associated with teen driving. The next Vista class is scheduled for Thursday, April 12, at Rancho Buena Vista High School. I encourage you to contact the Vista Sheriff’s station to sign up for one of the Start Smart classes at vps.vistastartsmart@sdsheriff.org. A schedule of upcoming classes is listed on the City of Vista’s web site at cityofvista.com.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond City’s parks and recreation program keep residents moving The City of San Marcos’ award-winning parks and recreation programs help keep our residents moving! Over the last 20 years, the City’s gone from zero to 60 miles of trails in our community; and in the past 25 years, we have dramatically increased our parks and recreation facilities --- going from having just three major parks and two mini parks in 1987 to 16 major parks and 18 mini parks in 2012. Our recreation facilities have gone

from two structures located in the center of the town to 13 recreation centers located throughout the community. And there is more to come! We have three new parks in various stages of design. Connors Park, which is a four-acre park near San Marcos Elementary School, will break ground this spring and should open about a year from now. It will be built with a $3.7 million dollar state grant for park improvements. South Lake Park is a 45-acre park planned to the west of South Twin Oaks Valley Road and will include fishing, boat rentals, picnicking areas and trails that lead to and around the lake.

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Ironman 70.3 California The coastal community of Oceanside will once again be hosting the annual Ironman 70.3 California event on Saturday, March 31st – kicking off the Ironman series in the continental United States. Ironman 70.3 California is one of the most prestigious 70.3 races on the circuit, with more than 2,400 participants competing for a prize purse of $50,000 and 750 qualifying points towards the World Championship 70.3 race that will be held in Las Vegas later this year. In fact, Gina Thomas, Race

Director for this event, told me that registration for this year’s race was sold out in less than two months. Festivities begin at 6:30 AM and continue through 4:00 PM. The race route consists of a 1.2-mile swim course in the Oceanside Harbor, a tough 56mile bike course along the coastal area of San Clemente State Park and the inland hills of Camp Pendleton, and concludes with a 13.1-mile run through the coastal neighborhoods of Oceanside. Besides watching the athletes compete in this incredible race, everyone is encouraged to visit the Ironman Village that will be located next to the Oceanside Pier area.

We’ve seen no indication that our customers are willing to relinquish the power and comfort of PCs for the limited utility of tablets. We do see users adding smart phones, tablets and E-readers to their electronic arsenal. When they’re out and about they need the smart phone to make and receive calls, texts and e-mails and some like the tablet’s big screen to read books, netsurf, watch movies and play Angry Birds. But when they get home or to the office they want to sit down with a fast, powerful computer, comfortable keyboard and mouse and a full size screen to invoice customers, play World of Warcraft, figure taxes, write the great American novel, edit pictures or print out some Hi-Def pornography for the bedroom wall.

Judging by Apples robust balance sheet, they must know what they’re doing in Cupertino. In a pure “cloud” computer environment, Internet servers would do the computing and data storage.

It was called “distributive processing” or DP. In the DP network the role of the server changed from providing processing power to that of communications routing. Today, for the most part our relationship with the Internet is that of a DP network.

Fifty years ago all computing was done that way. “Dumb terminals” connected to a “server” whose CPU that did all the processing work. All you needed was a key-

Android and iPad tablets have largely replaced the puny but highly portable “Netbooks.” Netbooks were fine for the Internet but painfully slow at running PC applications. Tablets are also affecting some notebook sales. Apple seems most vulnerable because Apple notebook users tend to be “lightweights” and less bothered by the limitations of tablets. Indeed it appears that Apple may be on its way out of the computer business altogether.

I am pleased to announce that I have named Susan Stames Hall, Chief Executive Officer of The Angel’s Depot, as the Woman of the Year for the 74th District. In the annual ceremony at the State Capitol on Monday, March 26, California Legislators honored one woman from their district whose community involvement is deserving of special recognition. Susan is a gifted leader of our community and her extraordinary dedication in providing essential meals for 800,000 seniors through The Angel’s Depot makes this tribute especially well deserved.

“I am humbled to be nominated as Woman of the Year by Assemblyman Garrick, however, I assure you it is my privilege to provide meals for seniors of the generations who fought wars, paid taxes and built this great country,” said Susan Hall. “We call them our “quiet heroes” and I am honored to be the vehicle that raises community awareness of their needs.”

Page 14 - March 29, 2012 ‘Commentary’ Cont. from Page 5 Manager rewards not them, but his department heads? “I support the city manager’s authority and discretion to do these things within a balanced budget,” says Mayor Sam . . . but that noble sounding comment loses its lustre when you see raises like $32,000 and $30,000 kicked over to a department head. Since breaking this story last week, our phones have been ringing off the hook, our email in-box is overflowing and, by all accounts, the Mayor and his city council is also feeling the heat of not only city rank and file employees, but its citizens, and some of the power brokers in the area. The people who fund, support, and vote in elections. The voters are not happy. They are calling for scalps. They think Clay Phillips has an attractive one and some are actively campaigning to collect it. Phillips claims money wasn’t being taken away from frontline workers but instead was money that has been saved by the elimination of other executive jobs. In one of the more notable examples, Phillips passed along a 24.4 percent raise to Director of Human Resources, Sheryl Bennett from $125,000 to $155,487. He went on to say that raise was necessary because another city (Oceanside) was trying to hire her. There are those, many in fact, who say . . . “you should have let her go to Oceanside. There are probably 25 people standing in line who would be delighted to step in as Director of Human Resources for $125,000 . . . or even less. There is apparently a back story to this as well. Gail Sullivan, we are told by reliably informed sources, was “invited” to leave the city of Escondido. She, it is said, threatened litigation. Clay Phillips, it is alleged, as an inducement to leave quietly, agreed to pay her one year’s salary and benefits if she would just go quietly into

that good night. She left. With a one year’s salary and benefits in her hip pocket. Or, more likely, in her Louis Vitton purse. Question: If, in fact, the above allegations are accurate, why did Clay Phillips not refer the matter to Jeff Epp, the city attorney who, in turn, would place the matter on the agenda for an executive session, brief the city council, and give the council the right to negotiate a “severance package?” We asked Phillips about this last week. “I can’t discuss that. It’s a personnel issue,” he said. Uh-huh. We pointed out to Mr. Phillips that this was taxpayer money. Public funds that were being committed. As it involved public money it should be a matter of public record. He declined to discuss or explain the matter. City Council member Olga Diaz was reportedly livid at the actions taken. “I’ve been trying to break loose $25,000 to save the Bookmobile program,” she said. “I was told the money wasn’t there. And then I see this. Disgusting.” Mayor Sam went on to say that even with the salary adjustments the department heads are still earning less than most of their counterparts in other North County cities. So what? It would be a very good bet that there are at least 25 qualified replacements for each of the department heads that received raises . . . any of whom would jump at the chance to join the city of Escondido. Sample comments we’ve heard or read from outraged citizens: That is where our library money went! It's a good thing some other city didn't get Sheryl Bennett; I heard Bell, CA., was trying really hard to get her. Those HR jobs are rather complicated. There are plenty of competent people out there who would take those jobs for lower pay and do wonderful work.

Sounds like negotiating in bad faith to me! These people should have taken a pay cut, not a raise! If they don't like it, get someone else! So I am supposed to believe they would have had a difficult time refilling jobs paying 125,000 a year ? Cutting of social services, public schools, teachers, just to pay department heads more money. If other cities are paying more for similar jobs, go there and apply for employment. How dare you try to justify your own self interests above everyone else's. Shame on you to think that you are better then the employees you manage? Another thing that is being missed in all this furor is . . . not only are we paying out beau coup bucks to these folks but we will continue paying through the nose after they retire. Their pensions are computed based on the average of the last three years of salary . . . of which they collect 90%. You think these big salary raises won’t factor in to that computation? You bet your sweet bippy it will. If there is a hero in this rather sad and awkward story . . . it is Escondido’s Chief of Police, Jim Maher. If anyone deserves a raise for the outstanding job he’s doing, it’s Chief Maher. Maher shows an annual salary of $150,000, however, he voluntarily took a 5% decrease in pay a year ago. This reduces his actual salary to $142,500. Maher, however, declined to accept the offered raise, saying, “no, not until the troops are properly compensated.”

To us, that speaks to outstanding leadership and courage. If there is any good to come out of this debacle, perhaps it lies in the fact that public sentiment is tending to shift back to those employees within the public sector . . . the line and staff folks . . . the police and fire department staffers. Till now, the public had trouble with salaries and pensions. Now, perhaps they see the city is not being as fair and honest as we were being led to believe.

Only the Best and the Brightest Read The Paper

r

Recently, we received a photo and an unsolicited letter from one of our long time readers. He has been an admirer of The Paper for some time and who can blame him? Timely cover stories, great columnists, a super Chuckles column . . . all the ingredients needed to live a happy and productive life. As our long time reader says, “E=mc2!”

“If it wasn’t for The Paper, I’d be a nobody!” People tell me I’m a genius. Well, that’s probably true. Of course, it’s all relative. Whatever it is that I am, I owe to The Paper. My friends and I never miss an edition. We absolutely love the Chuckles Column, and that guy that writes the Computer Column? Brilliant! And the Cover Stories? Listen . . . I wouldn’t be nearly as smart as I am if I didn’t avidly devour each week’s cover story. What great research! Listen . . . you wanna be smart like me? Read The Paper! It’s free! Your friend, A. Einstein

Only the Bold, the Best, and the Brightest, read The Paper Editor’s Note: Recently, we received yet another note from a contented reader. He was in between trips but asked that we relay his thoughts and feelings to you, our reader. He, too, has been a long time reader and claims the reason is because it makes him a more rounded person. He collects jokes from the Chuckles Column and is a hit at the parties he attends, usually after conquering a village or town . . he learned all about Computers from our very own Computer Columnis Paul Van Middlesworth and his Viking Lady, Ms. Nome. No wonder he is so bold!

First, I discovered America. Then, I discovered The Paper! Ever since I can remember I’ve had the burning desire to discover new places, new adventures. Because of this, I set out to discover a new country . . . and I was successful. I even ventured inland a great many miles where I discovered a place I called Minnesota. “This,” I thought, “would be a great place for Scandinavians.” So I headed back to Norway to recruit settlers. While I was gone, some clown named Columbus claimed he discovered America. Life ain’t fair. Except life also gives us The Paper. I read it whenever and wherever I go exploring and only buy from those who advertise in The Paper. It’s a Viking thing. Your friend, Erik the Red.
