The Flying Tigers. We reproduce some of that story here, and tip our hats to those who flew . . . many of our readers weren’t even born when these battles took place. To those we say, read, learn, and remember the debt we all owe: ••••• One shining hope has
emerged from three catastrophic months of war. That is the American Volunteer Group of fighter pilots, the so-called "Flying Tigers" of Burma and southeast China who paint the jaws of a shark on their Curtiss P-40's (above). Outnumbered often
ten to one, they have so far shot down about 300 Jap planes, killed perhaps 800 Jap airmen. They have violently wrenched from the Jap Air Force control of the skies over Burma and southeast China. They have conclusively proved what was once only

Page 2 - November 8, 2012 Flying Tigers’ Cont. from Page 1 a Yankee belief: that one American flier is equal to two or three Japs. "Give me," said U.S. Lieutenant General Brett in Australia last week, "100 fighters to 200 Japs and I'll lick them every time. I am not disparaging the Japs. They are good fighters." On the following pages LIFE presents the first full-length portrait of the Flying Tigers in action, taken by LIFE Photographer George Rodger before Jap ground forces seized the A.V.G. base at Rangoon. The hundred or so young men of then Flying Tigers have several tremendous assets: 1) they have had up to six years of military flying and they have an instinctive feel for what their machines will do; 2) they have been blooded in the air and 3) they are always looking for a fight. The result was bound to be something extremely painful to anybody who ran into them. On their first meeting, they actually lost four planes

The vet then proceeded to tell Andrea that, if she wanted to keep this from recurring, she should go to the store and get some "Nair" hair remover and rub it in the dog's ears once a month. Andrea went to the store and bought some "Nair" hair remover At the register, the pharmacist told her, "If you're going to use this under your arms, don't use deodorant for a few days." Andrea said, "I'm not using it under my arms."
One said to the other: "My 78th birthday was yesterday. Wife gave me an SUV".
The pharmacist said, "If you're using it on your legs, don't use body lotion for a couple of days."
Other guy: "Wow, that's amazing! Imagine, an SUV! What a great gift!"
Andrea replied, "I'm not using it on my legs either. If you must know, I'm using it on my Schnauzer." The pharmacist said, "Well, stay off your bicycle for about a week." ••••• Two Old Guys Talking . . .

A.V.G. is usually fighting defensive air actions - i.e., breaking up Jap bomber formations protected by Jap fighters. These Jap fighters are not quite as fast as the American Tomahawks but they climb and maneuver better. Oddly enough, Jap bombers are faster than fighters and the only way the Americans can get them is to gain altitude and gather extra speed diving on them.
After the flight, Pilot Hill (left) talks it over with his armorer, Jim Musick, by the telephone in the pilot tent. There were three raids this day, Jan. 23. In first Jap attack of 30 planes, 16 were shot down. Even in China, the A.V.G. boys get American steak, ham and eggs, pie, hot and cold running water, see very ancient American movies. Most wear shoulder holsters.

The unoriginal Japs are, for the most part, flying American planes. Their bombers are home-made copies of ours, with modifications which are not always improvements. Their engines are duplicates of U.S. designs made in Japan under U.S.

An Open Letter to the Mayor and City Council of Escondido Dear Mayor Abed Council Members:
My name is Ken Myers. I know many of you from my involvement with Rotary and other service organizations in Escondido. I’m writing because I’m concerned with the circumstances of Chief Jim Maher’s removal from office. He told me directly that he was forced to retire, and I have it through second hand information that it is the consequence of friction with the City Manager. This is where my problem lies: I’m a retired Marine Corps Colonel. I’ve ordered investigations; as an officer I conducted investigations, and it is clear to me how investigations are conducted. When the Chief was suspended “to protect him” because he reported possible misconduct, I was skeptical. I had never heard of such a bizarre procedure. The citizens of the city Shave twice/three times, throw 'em away. Not at Costco. Have to go to CVS to get them. Wanted to get ONE bottle of Margarita mix. Nope. Have to buy a two-pack. One bottle would last me a year. Two bottles would last me (checking my computer's calculator) . . . .um, two years. Changing of specials. A month ago I found a delightful pack of sliced, smoked salmon. Perfect for fixing up lox and bagels. A nice toasted bagel, with cream cheese, a slab of lox (salmon), a slice of onion, capers . . . makes for a nice breakfast or mid-day snack. Went back today planning on buying two or three packs of these delicious, smoked salmon. No longer in stock. Speaking of bagels . . . I want to buy one bag of bagels. Nope. You have to buy two. I told the checker I only wanted one bag. "Okay," he says, "but I have to charge you for two." So I got two . . . and they last forever. (See indepth calculations for length of use under "Margaritas"
were told it could not be discussed because the investigation dealt with personnel issues. While skeptical, I trusted the integrity of city officials. Now I know the Chief was forced to retire. That had nothing to do with the investigation into alleged misconduct. The City Manager and possibly others combined the two issues to obscure the real reason. He and the Mayor seemingly deceived the citizens, refusing to discuss the real reason for the Chief’s suspension by concealing that deception behind the claim it would interfere with the investigation. We now see that the suspension was a pretext to remove the Chief from office. It looks to me like the citizens of the city were knowingly, willfully, and intentionally deceived. I’m still inclined to have confidence in the integrity of city officials, but need to have that faith restored. Would you please explain to me why my conclusion is not correct? Thank you, Ken Myers above). A little thing like frozen fruit bars . . . no longer stocked. A nice munchie at night . . . or mid-afternoon. We wound up getting a box of fudgcicles and a box of ice cream sandwiches. We have high hopes that Costco will not discontinue these. After all, they are nutritious, healthful, no fat and no calories, and no sugar. At least, that's what I told Evelyn. So often you find great products at Costco, you get used to it, look forward to buying more, only to have Costco stop stocking it. I would lead a revolution to try and persuade Costco to change its ways . . . but I am older now . . . and tire more easily. My days of leading revolutions are behind me. I shall simply grin and bear it. And eat twice as many samples. That'll fix their wagon. ‘Man About Town’ Cont. on Page 10

Bruno’s, Famed San Marcos Eatery, Closes Area residents were saddened to learn that Bruno’s Italian Restaurant, a popular fixture on San Marcos’ Restaurant Row since 1981, closed suddenly last week. Its daily buffet was a favorite
among older diners. The whole restaurant atmosphere lent itself well to family gatherings, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate events. Fabio Fanelli, son of owners Bruno and Maria Fanelli, said the restaurant’s last night serving the public was Oct. 25. “We’d love to tell our customers, ‘Thank you for your support, from the bottom of our hearts,’” Fabio Fanelli added. Amgen Tour of California hosted by Escondido? November 13th is the day Escondido officials say they expect to find out whether the city will host the nation's largest bicycle race in May. Up to $475,000 has been budgeted to attract the honor of being the starting line “host” city for the annual Amgen Tour of California, which came to Escondido in 2009 but hasn't returned since. In 2009, an estimated 40,000 people packed Grand
Avenue near the finish line, and an estimated 300,000 spectators watched at least part of the Escondido stage, which stretched from Rancho Bernardo to Palomar Mountain. Both city officials and the business community are supportive of the event and have fingers crossed for a favorable decision. North County Crime Blotter CARLSBAD: A wallet and phone were stolen from a 1995 Ford Ranger parked on Carlsbad Village Drive across from the Hilton hotel, a caller reported at 4:42 p.m. Oct. 28. CARLSBAD: Two bicycles were stolen from a locked garage in the 900 block of Laguna Drive, states a report taken at 7:52 p.m. Oct. 27. The thief apparently wrote “I took your bicycles” on a dry-erase board in the garage, the report states.
Letters to the Editor Chief Maher’s “Retirement” With the retirement of Police Chief Jim Maher in December we stand at the threshold of the close of an era. Maher’s tenure as Chief caps off his 32 years in Escondido police service and exemplifies law enforcement at it’s finest. Since the 1970s, when Mike Stein became Chief, Escondido’s Police Department has been managed by “Home Grown” Chiefs hired, trained and promoted locally from within ‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. on Page 10

A suicide dive into Blenheim bomber on R.A.F. airport was tried by a Jap pilot whose plane had been shot up by A.V.G. He missed the Blenheim (right) by a few feet and piled into a bank. Several Jap fliers, seeing they were bound to crash anyway, have tried this. Blenheim was saved by the fact that the Jap did not burst into flames. Here R.A.F. men clear away Jap's tail assembly.

The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up 'vocabulary').
In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)
Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy). Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be cir-

At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour. 7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it. 8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.
4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot grouse.
9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies). 12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries. 13.. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad. 14.

We have to not only remember those who are fighting for us today . . . but those who fought for us in the past. As this Veteran’s Day approaches, it does us all well to recognize our past heroes, and give a proud salute to our present day heroes.

Take note of George Rodgers’ assignments: Iran, Iraq, Ethiopia, Syria - the past, they say, shows us the future.

Page 10 - November 8, 2012 ‘Letter to the Editor’ Cont. from Page 5 the department. Each lived in the community, learned and intimately knew Escondido and responded humanely to our growing needs while capitalizing on the knowledge and experience of their predecessors. We certainly hope this custom continues. Importing leadership outside of the city would not, in our view, preserve morale and cohesiveness in a police department troubled over Maher’s early and perhaps not entirely voluntary retirement. That Jim Maher is eligible for retirement is unquestionable. We’re just not that certain retirement is what he really wanted to do at this time. Having served four years as a Military Policeman in the Marine Corps followed by 32 years in Escondido’s Police Department including 6 years as our Top Cop, Jim is only 57 years old. Assuming good health, one would think Jim good to go for another 10 years. He would certainly be capable. ‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 Dropped in on old friend, Ronnie Morris of Ronnie’s Service Centers at 207 East Valley Parkway in downtown Escondido, last week. He was busy checking the brakes on a client’s car. He showed me one of the disc brakes and pointed out a number of unusual indentations on the face of the disc. “Those shouldn’t be there,” he said. “What’s causing them?” I asked. “Look here” . . . and showed me the inside of the caliper. Sure enough, there was a sharp burr on the inside of the caliper that had been digging into the disc. “You’re a pretty good detective,” I said. “You’ve learned how to solve all kinds of mechanical mysteries, haven’t you?” “Well, after 46 years in the business, I reckon I’ve learned a few things,” he smiled. I’ve known Ronnie for most of those 46 years, as a friend
The Maher retirement raises questions regarding the circumstances giving rise to his decision to hang up the badge. Full answers appear forever hidden from view in City personnel files and in the absence of disclosure suggests Jim may have “stepped on somebody’s toes.”. Were that the case, and we don’t know that for sure, it would be a tragic way to end the career of one of the best Police Chiefs in Escondido history and a black eye to our city government. /s/Sid Colquitt Escondido, Ca Gold! Dear Mr. Davis: What a fine reading the "Gold" article was! The only thing I was wishing for was ... more! Rather than complaining about the very abrupt end of that article (I was flipping pages, looking for more, but there was no more), it crossed ‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. on Page 13 and as a mechanic, as well as his wife, Diana, and all of his kids. I watched ‘em all grow up. Ronnie’s always been a smart, talented guy with plenty of good, solid ambition; attributes that have helped him grow his business to the success that it is. Today, he’s got new customers that are children of his customers 46 years ago. Their parents told them, “you want your car fixed properly? Go see Ronnie’s.” Pretty good recommendation. ••••• Also in the automotive world, about a year ago I bought a lovely 2000 Toyota Avalon from Randy Knight, one of the brilliant sales guys at Lexus of Escondido. The car had 110,000 miles on it. Do the math. That’s about 10,000 miles a year for 10 years. A good, low mileage car. Drove/drives like a dream. Very happy with the car and the price . . . and, in particular the great service from Randy as well as his colleagues at Lexus. Everything was fine until about a month ago when an errant motorcyclist slammed
Tinkerbelle is just a wee little 4 pound girl and only about 2 years young. She is silent, calm and just wants to snuggle. But if your lap is busy she does just fine in a doggy bed or a pile of pillows on the sofa...She is a real gem!!! She gets along nicely with your other pets and people and nicely crate trained. Like all our pups Tinkerbelle is spayed and microchipped. Her 5 way vaccines and rabies are all up to date. She comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for her transition and any favorite toys or bedding. For more photographs please view her on our website as well as all the other pups in our rescue that need forever homes or a foster family. Visit www.forgottenpaws.org or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hannah is a 2-year-old spayed female terrier mix, ID 68346. Hannah is a young, spirited girl, your typical terrier! She's active and loves to go for walks and play with people. Hannah also enjoys the company of other small dogs, so she would be a great fit for a family that is looking for another canine companion. Hannah is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Her $85 adoption fee includes spay, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org. The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
into the left rear quarter panel of my prized Toyoa. Made quite a dent. Fortunately, the motorcyclist, who was a nice young Marine, was not injured. The insurance company gave me a check for about $4500 to do the body work. I shopped around got several bids, one of which was from a nephew; he quoted around $4000 with new parts. Told him I just wanted it repaired. He estimated around $2600. I then took it to Ramon Gonzalez owner of ACM Auto Body & Paint, 1175 Industrial Avenue, Suite Y. He did the job for $1255.55, about a third of the insurance estimate and about half of what my nephew quoted. So much for family discounts. I picked up the car last Friday and Ramon had done a beautiful job. The car looked like it just came off the showroom floor. I hope I don’t have any more fender benders, but if I do, guess where I’ll be taking my car? And mechanical problems? Guess where I’ll be going? And if I need a good late model used car? I know some top notch talent!
Bellaboo is the adoptable Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. She's a 3-1/2-year-old, 8 pound, shorthaired Torbie. (That's a mix of Tortoise Shell and Tabby.) She was transferred to RCHS through our FOCAS program. Bellaboo loves to rub against things...your leg, your cabinets, other cats...you name it. It seems to turn on her "purr switch." One more thing about her. She likes to sit on the top shelf so she can see everything going on around her. Bellaboo's adoption fee of $145 includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, spay, and microchip. If you can't adopt her, maybe you can sponsor Bellaboo until her new family arrives. Meet your new cat, dog, or rabbit right now at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760-753-6413.

Neighborhood Leadership Program
San Marcos General Plan Wins Award
Last week, I had the honor of attending the graduation ceremony for the City of Escondido’s Neighborhood Leadership Program. 20 graduates received certificates and can now count themselves among the 150 alumni of this important program. The eight-week Neighborhood Leadership Program is offered free of charge by the City’s Neighborhood Services Division, in partnership with Community Housing Works. Participants range in age from teens to grandparents, all with the common goal of wanting to gain leadership skills and make their neighborhoods better places to live.
We are all very busy, and it’s not easy to commit to volunteering our time. However, the investment of time into this program has achieved overwhelmingly positive results in our neighborhoods, and graduates set positive examples for their younger siblings, children and grandchildren. The program teaches participants how to identify their existing talents and resources to create positive change in their community, how to strengthen interpersonal communication skills and how to effectively use technology as a practical and innovative tool to communicate and connect with people. In addition, they develop lasting friendships with their fellow participants. The Neighborhood Leadership Program is held annually each September. If you are interested in the program, contact the City of Escondido’s Neighborhood Services Division (760) 839-4057.

The City of San Marcos’ general plan update was recently awarded the 2012 Comprehensive Planning Award, Small Jurisdiction, from the American Planning Association (APA), San Diego Section, making it eligible for statewide recognition. After receiving praise for the plan’s sustainability measures and outreach efforts, the award is a testament to a great product that came out of a long process. In order to receive such a distinction, a planning effort nominated

Senior Holiday Dance 2012
It’s not only an enormous source of pride – it’s also an enormous source of revenue for San Diego – for the city, for the hotels, for the shops and for the restaurants.
As we all know, Comic-Con has been a stunning success – it has transformed itself over the years from a relatively small gathering of comic book aficionados into an international spectacle, attracting Alist celebrities from around the world and pop culture fans from nearly every corner of the galaxy.
With an attendance of about 130,000 people, the convention today pumps nearly $180 million into the local economy and produces almost $3 million dollars a year in tax revenue that we can use for city services.
Make plans now to attend the City of Oceanside’s Annual Senior Holiday Dance that will be taking place on Sunday, December 9, from 2:00 PM – 5:30 PM, at the El Corazon Senior Center that is located at 3302 Senior Center Drive. While speaking to the event’s main volunteer and coordinator, Helen Schell told me that everyone would experience another fabulous gathering this year. Dancing would be taking place from 2:00 – 4:00 PM, with music being provided by the Billy Harper

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter As Veterans’ Day nears, it is a good time to stop and say - we owe America’s veterans a depth of gratitude. As a City, we are proud of the businesses of the men and women who have so bravely and selflessly served our country and those companies that support our military. We also commend and support those who have answered the call to serve our nation and who are investing back into their communities with new business ventures and job creation. I encourage you to support these veteran owned businesses as you
seek the services you need or go about your shopping and dining in Vista. Whether a business has been here for years or they are a new addition, they all recognize the unique opportunities this city has to offer. Should you be looking for information on starting or growing your business, I encourage you to contact our Economic Development department at 760.639.6165 or go to cityofvista.com. By supporting Vista companies and investing in industries with growth potential, we are making our city more business friendly and an even better place to live and to work.
The general plan is the city’s blueprint for development and growth developed by the community over two-years, more than 36 public meetings and feedback from residents, property owners and businesses. It will guide San Marcos towards its new horizons with a clear focus for plans related to land use, mobility, open space, resource conservation, and safety.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood
Recently, a San Diego institution agreed to remain just that, as ComicCon signed a contract to remain at our Convention Center through 2016.
I want to thank everyone at ComicCon for its commitment to this city. We look forward to having this super event in San Diego for many eons to come.

Band. The band loves mixing things up, so guests will be able to enjoy musical selections from many genres: polkas, western line dancing, oldies and more. Then from 4:00 – 5:30 PM, everyone will be treated to delicious hors d'oeuvres and wine presented by the wonderful folks from Fairwinds Ivey Ranch. When speaking with Helen, she noted that this event sells out quickly, so Seniors – and their friends and family members – should be sure to get their tickets soon – a real buy at $10 per person for so much entertainment.

Microsoft W8 (Wait) Is Here “Ta-Da!” Microsoft announced the release of its latest operating system (OS) last week. While Microsoft calls it “Windows 8,” we think W8 (wait) is more appropriate. Most folks who innocently bought new PCs with W8 last week wished they’d W8ed. If you are one of those, feel free to take it back and insist on a PC with the Windows 7 OS. Microsoft and your retailer will understand completely, you see, W8 isn’t really made for PCs, at least not yet. W8 is for smart phones and tablets. So why does Microsoft insist that the major PC brands offer W8? They have their reasons. Historically, the sale of PC operating systems has been Microsoft’s
California Responds to Hurricane Sandy Hurricane Sandy was one of the largest and costliest natural disasters ever recorded in the United States. With structural damage and lost business combined, the cost is estimated near $30 billion. The storm brought high winds and heavy rain, caused floods and fires, and displaced thousands. In response, the State of California has sent members of the California National Guard, trained rescue and medical support teams, and equipment. More than 80 California state personnel will work to help restore devastated communities in the Midwest and along the East Coast. As California residents also search for ways to help, there are many volunteer and donation opportunities. The American Red Cross is accepting donations to aide impacted
main source of income. Microsoft gets $50-$100 for every PC sold. When PC sales are down, Microsoft suffers just like the rest. In the past, the release of a new OS from Microsoft provided a boost to the entire industry as business and home users upgraded hardware and software to stay current. In 2007 Microsoft sought to energize slumping PC sales by replacing the nearly seven-year-old XP OS with Vista. Vista was a huge flop and PC sales remained flat. Windows 7 landed in November of 2009. It was well accepted and provided a real boost to PC industry sales and profits. W8 will not, nor is it expected to, have much impact on today’s slow PC sales. If Microsoft didn’t release W8 with the expectation that it would energize PC sales, why then?
growth of Google and the Android OS. Our guess is that the next couple of years will be notable for the continuation of “The remarkable shrinking Apple.” Apple is rapidly losing market share in the growing markets. In smart phones Apple is now being outsold five to one by Androids. Apples tablet market share has plunged from 80% to 50% in the past year and is in free fall. Apple is finding that being the product “for people who don’t know any better” isn’t enough as increasingly savvy users recognize Apple’s technology lag. Will the single platform W8 strategy enable Microsoft to become a significant hardware/software presence in the smart phone/tablet business?
It’s a gamble because it puts Microsoft in direct competition with some of its best customers. Will Microsoft force PC makers to abandon Win 7 and ship only PCs with W8 as they have in the past? We doubt it. Functionally W8 is Win 7 optimized for touch screen interface. Businesses won’t be impressed. Most home users will find no good reason to suffer through learning the W8 “Metro” desktop. We don’t think that touch screen technology for PCs is viable. Hand motion recognition perhaps but who wants boogers on their PC screen? So our recommendation on W8 is W8 and see.
PC desktop and notebook sales are slow, smart phone and tablet sales are booming. Microsoft hopes that W8 will provide a common platform for PCs, smart phones, tablets and gaming consoles enabling Microsoft to compete for hardware, software and advertising dollars. W8 is key to Microsoft’s upcoming Microsoft branded smart phone and just released tablet (Surface) entries. Microsoft is moving into some very dynamic markets. The past couple of years have been notable for the
communities. While complete recovery is far off, our response to this disaster can include not only aide to the displaced but also disaster preparedness education. There are many steps California households can take to prepare for natural disasters common to our region.

She writes a financial column for The Paper that deals with Reverse Mortgages. I was struck by the easy flowing text she presented us, about a sometimes complex subject. I marveled at how she could make someone like me understand finance. I asked her where she had taken her training as a writer. She had never studied the art. It is a God-given talent with her. If all writers wrote as Laura writes, as if you are talking to your reader, we’d have a lot more interesting material to read. Same is true of Paul Van Middlesworth and his computer columns; he, like Laura, is a natural writer. You could be as well. Give it a shot. Letters to the Editor are always welcome.

‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. from Page 10 my mind to expand on it myself, by writing an article about the man who started it all, John Sutter and his New Helvetia. I have never done any writing like this, but the subject interests me and it seems to be consistent with the Paper's character. What are the Paper's rules regarding such submissions? /s/Tom Skarvada San Diego County Editor’s Comment: Glad you enjoyed the story. Go ahead and write your story and send it to us via email. Best advice I can give about writing is write your story as though you are sitting across the table from me, having a cup of tea together, and you are telling me the story. That gives a nice, natural flow to the story and as you tell it, so shall the reader(s) hear it. A great example is one of our columnists, Laura Strickler.
