Every hour of every day, road rage occurs somewhere within our cities, counties, rural and urban sectors, within all 50 U. S. states – at alarming and increasing levels! It is now a serious, nonstop, growing danger – to human safety and to human lives.

98% INCREASE IN ROAD RAGE! It is mindboggling that gun deaths and injuries in road rage inciThe Paper - 760.747.7119

dents have increased 98% between 2017 to 2021 in America!

The tale of the tape is a most grisly one: road rage incidents have caused hundreds of horrific murders and more than 12,610 serious injuries to date . . . and counting!

2021 WAS THE DEADLIEST YEAR -- SO FAR! Our 2022 year is still yet to be played out, but, last year, 2021, was the deadliest year for road rage across the United States – thus far!

According to the official database of the U. S. Government agency, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an average of 44 people were shot (per month) in 2021.

That is an intoxicating number to comprehend: Somewhere in our country, (more) than one person (per day) was shot in a road rage encounter . . . every single day . . . throughout the entire 2021 calendar year!

IS SAN DIEGO COUNTY RATED HIGH IN ROAD RAGE? According to the official database of the U. S. Government agency, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), yes, San Diego County is among the worst American cities/counties with road rage. Several subsequent national surveys have corroborated this finding by the NHTSA. Among the nearly 19,500 incorporated cities, towns, and counties within

all the 50 U. S. states, San Diego city/county consistently rates among the most dangerous places for road rage.

Other statistics concur, as with World Atlas, which ranked San Diego number 5 among the most dangerous road rage cities and counties in America today (with No. 1 being the worst). 1. Los Angeles, CA 2. New York City, NY 3. Mount Pleasant, NC 4. Chicago, IL 5. San Diego, CA

A DEA officer stopped at our farm yesterday, he said “I need to inspect your farm for illegal growing drugs.” I said “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there.”

The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!” Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and shoved it in my face. “See this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish…. On any land! No questions asked or answers given!

Lets put the seniors in jail and the criminals in a nursing home. This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks. They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc., and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them. A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell. They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose. They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool, and education. Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request. Private, secure rooms for all, with an outdoor exercise yard

are driving road rage statistics to unprecedented heights since 2017 to the present (98% increase from 2017 to 2021 in road rage encounters)?

“AMERICANS ARE GETTING MORE MISERABLE, AND THERE’S DATA TO PROVE IT.” The handwriting was already on the wall back in 2019, when The Washington Post cited a most disturbing revelation in their bold headline: “Americans Are Getting More Miserable, and There’s Data to Prove It.”

In releasing findings from the 2019 General Social Survey (one of the longest-running and most highlyregarded public opinion research projects in the nation), the Washington Post gave the sobering bottom line: “Americans are getting more miserable than ever before. We’ve come a long way from the peak happiness of the 1990s.” Such angst among a nation of citizens causes temper flare-ups and spontaneous release of pent-up emotions by millions of drivers on today’s roadways.

“AMERICANS ARE THE UNHAPPIEST THEY’VE BEEN IN 50 YEARS!” And the trending continued in 2020 when the PBS News Hour released their poll numbers, stating in part, “Americans are the unhappiest they’ve been in nearly 50

years,” in citing raw data from the Covid Response Tracking Study, conducted by the National Opinion Research Center.

According to social scientists, there are chockablock reasons for this recent uptick in road rage encounters. The engine that is driving these violent road rage statistics upward is, ostensibly, the unsteady zeitgeist that we currently live in.

Certainly, there is a national anger, growing anxiety, and collective frustration of an entire nation of human beings who are constantly battling and attempting to survive and grapple with an unrelenting and deadly pandemic. In a nutshell, the very social fabric and existence which we have grown accustomed in living our ‘normal lives’ . . . has been hugely erased.

And if all of this were still not enough, add to the above, the growing anxiety and uncertainty of a lifethreatening unemployment rate, rising economic and financial duress, socio-political strife, random school shootings, growing distrust and divisive anger in recent Supreme Court rulings, open and vented threats to our FBI and law enforcement -- all of this, have further divided a nation of people with distrust and division and pent-up anger. All of this, and more, have fueled short-tempers and vented rage on our national roadways.

ROAD RAGE NOW AFFECTS 80% OF ALL DRIVERS. On 14 July 2021, AAA revealed their startling report summary: “Nearly 80% of all drivers expressed significant anger, aggression, or road rage behind the wheel at least once in the past year.” The report reveals the startling fact that the majority of motorists (admit) to “extreme, combative behavior behind the wheel.”

One fact-gathering by SafeMotorist.com claimed that as much as 66% of traffic fatalities are now caused by firearms, rather than just a typical accident. Retired California Highway Patrol veteran, Ken Daily of Los Angeles, says road rage is nothing new, but the behavior pattern is: “It’s nothing new, but now they have weapons.” ROAD RAGE AFFECTS ALL VOCATIONS: JUDGES, TEACHERS, POLICE, CLERGY. It matters not if you’re an off-duty police officer in civilian clothes, or a law-abiding judge, or a role-model school teacher, or an upstanding church pastor from the pulpit – road rage can, and has, affected everyone – and across all professions and demographics today!

Assault with a Deadly Weapon Arrest – San Marcos

On 8/23/2022, at about 2:20 a.m., the victim was with two friends on a public bike trail near the 800 block of Rancheros Drive, in the city of San Marcos. The suspects, Deon Palmer (DOB 11-02-1989) and Johnnie Kousol (DOB 05-15-1978) arrived on foot and confronted the victim. During the argument, a bottle was thrown that struck victim’s dog in the face. The dog sustained a large laceration to his face. The dog was later treated for his injuries. The victim and both suspects continued to argue, and the victim was stabbed multiple times. The Victim sustained multiple cuts and punctures as a result of the physical altercation. The victim was able to get away from the suspects and obtained assistance from an unrelated party who called 911. Both suspects fled the location after they stabbed the victim.

San Marcos Sheriff’s Deputies and the San Marcos Fire Department responded to assist the victim. Deputies also responded to search the area for the suspects. Deon Palmer was located at the intersection of East Mission Road and Bennett Avenue by deputies and was identified as one of the suspects. The second suspect Jonnie Kousol fled the location and was not located until about 7:00 a.m. Johnnie Kousol was contacted by deputies in the 200 block of Woodland Parkway. Jonnie Kousol and Deon Palmer were arrested and booked into the Vista Detention Facility for assault with a deadly weapon, cruelty to animals, and conspiracy. The victim was transported to a local hospital, where he was treated for his non-life threatening

injuries. The investigation is ongoing and being handled by the San Marcos Area Detectives. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department at 858-510-5200. Call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 with information and you will remain anonymous. You can also download the P3 anonymous tip app. You may be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to a felony arrest. Printer/Delivery Problems Plague North County Newspapers

The Paper, like several other North County newspapers have suffered from late deliveries in recent weeks because Advanced Web, our printer of over 23 years, sold/merged with an Anaheim based printer and, as a result, deliveries from Anaheim to North County were way off schedule. Normally, our distributors would pick up the latest edition of The Paper at 5am every Wednesday morning and all papers would be delivered in North County by 5pm that same day. The last three weeks we were unable to receive delivery until noon or 1pm. Thus the delay in getting papers out to our many distribution points in North County. The Paper is not alone with delivery problems. Also affected are our good friends and worthy competitors, The Escopndido Times Advocate, The RoadRunner, Coast News and the Ramona Sentinel.

A deceased human body wrapped in what appeared to be a tarp was discovered Thursday morning off a road in unincorporated San Marcos, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department confirmed.

The body, the gender of which has not been determined, was reported around 7 a.m.by a construction worker heading to work, according to Lt. Chris Steffen. The Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene, located around the 8000 block of Harmony Grove Road near Escondido Creek.

The Sheriff’s Department reported in a press release that the body was wrapped in an unknown material, which Steffen later said appeared to be a tarp.

Sheriff’s officials were still processing the scene as of 11:30 last Thursday. Harmony Grove Road was closed in both directions near Questhaven Road due to heavy law enforcement presence in the area.

The Sheriff’s Department Homicide Unit will lead the investigation into the incident. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Unit at 858-285-6330 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.

JUST WEEKS AGO, OFF-DUTY POLICE OFFICER WAS ARRESTED & JAILED FOR ROAD RAGE WHILE IN CIVILIAN CLOTHES. Just weeks ago, on 25 July 2022, ABC Eyewitness News (WABC-7) broadcast that an off-duty police officer from NYPD was arrested, jailed, and suspended without pay from the police force . . . for road rage (while off duty, as a civilian). The 32-year-old off-duty police officer, Douglas Debonet, was arrested by his own NYPD after an out-ofcontrol road rage incident in which he broke the side mirror of a car, allegedly causing the motorist to drive off in fear.

Instead of leaving well enough alone, the enraged off-duty police officer then followed the driver to his home, where he pulled out his police gun and proceeded to threaten both the driver’s life and the life of his father who came out of his home. Debonet violently began waving a loaded gun in the father’s face, who was unarmed and compliant. In this road rage incident, Officer Debonet was arrested by his own department police officers and jailed at the 110th Precinct in Queens, New York. According to court records, Debonet was charged with criminal mischief and menacing a person with a live firearm weapon. Debonet was later released without

The Police Benevolent Association and the officer’s lawyer did not respond to calls for comment. Debonet joined the department in 2012, according to CCRB records (Civilian Complaint Review Board).

This most recent occurrence just weeks ago, is not an isolated incident with law enforcement, although this is an exception to the rule (most police officers, by far, are of high standing). CHURCH MINISTER CHARGED IN ROAD RAGE INCIDENT. Road rage is nothing new. And it has affected all vocations and all demographics.

As far back as 9 July 2017, USA Today ran the surreal headline: “JESUS, TAKE THE WHEEL!” MINISTER CHARGED IN VIOLENT ROAD RAGE INCIDENT.” As reported by USA Today: “William Rian Adams, 35, was arrested in connection with a road rage incident on Florida’s Turnpike near Palm City after pulling out a gun, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.” The gun which the preacher, from Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, North Carolina, pointed at the other driver was a Glock 22.

"We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow." 7. "They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax." 8. "No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared." 9. "Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers." 10. "We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish." 11. "The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun." 12. "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair." 13. "I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends' three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller." 14. "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the resort.' We're trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service." 15. "When we were in Spain, there were too many Spanish peo-

report, the “Man of the Cloth” grew angry when he said his Corvette was being followed too closely, so he “attempted to brake-check” (momentarily slamming on his brakes) to get the other vehicle to back off.

Official reports state that when the other driver attempted to pass in a Chevrolet Silverado, the preacher then pointed a semi-automatic handgun at him, according to troopers.

As a consequence, affidavits clearly show that the 35-year-old man of the pulpit was arrested and formally charged with two counts of “aggravated assault with a loaded deadly weapon.” Prior to that, in a separate incident, a retired minister was arrested for road rage in Carson City, Nevada. Baptist pastor, Elmer French, was booked for felony assault with a weapon and also charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

According to Carson City police, the 65-year-old retired minister, “waved a loaded .40-caliber handgun after he was unable to pass a motorcyclist.”

More recently, on 26 February 2020, the Christian based Baptist Press News reported the headline: “LOUISIANA PASTOR ARRESTED AFTER INTERSTATE SHOOTING.”

Louisiana pastor, Christopher “Checkerz” Williams, was arrested on 11 February 2020 for allegedly firing a handgun at an 18-wheeler dur-

ing an interstate road rage shooting incident.

The 47-year-old Lead Pastor at Renew Church in Baton Rouge was charged with illegally carrying and discharging a firearm, reckless driving, violent physical aggravated assault on another person, and criminal damage to property. The New Orleans Seminary informed the Biblical Recorder Staff at the Baptist Press (which also broke the news along with mainstream media), that Lead Pastor Christopher Williams was terminated from church employment. (Baptist Biblical Recorder Executive Editor, Seth Brown, contributed to the above report.) Take a short multiple-choice quiz and in the process learn more about road rage.

TRUE OR FALSE: MOST ROAD RAGE INCIDENTS GO UNREPORTED. A. True. B. False.

again. My father was a big fan of Alabama football. So am I. My wife bleeds houndstooth.

As it happens, I was born during the third quarter of Coach Bryant’s Liberty Bowl. His farewell game. The Crimson Tide did battle with the Fighting Illinis. I came into the world after Jesse Bendross ran an 8-yard touchdown and Peter Kim kicked a field goal.

At the moment of my earthly presentation, there was a television in the corner, broadcasting the game. My father was sitting before the TV. His nose, an inch from the screen. My mother was huffing. Throughout my delivery, the doctor would occasionally ask my mother, “How are we doing?” At which point my father would answer, “Twelve to fourteen. Alabama’s ball. Third down.”

All my life I wanted to attend the University of Alabama. It was the emerald city at the end of the proverbial rainbow. The big dream. All my friends attended Alabama. I married into an Alabama family. I went to games with my pals. I smuggled alcohol into BryantDenny Stadium in well-known orifices of my body. But guys like me don’t go to college. I am an academic nobody.

After my father died, my educational life became a colossal shipwreck. I became a dropout and an abject failure. I was a faceless ‘neck working construction, playing music in beer joints. I was one of a million guys with an Alabama “A” on the back of his 27-year-old Ford. I went to community college as a grown man. Got my high-school equivalency. Tried to make something of myself. But there is only so much lipstick you can put on a goat. When I finally finished college, I tried to further my education by enrolling in a small university which shall remain nameless. I dreamed of becoming a teacher someday. Maybe English or literature.

But admissions turned me down. Educational deficiencies, they said. Which was code for “sorry white trash.”

For years I believed there was a ceiling above me that could never be transcended. I believed I was without value. I hated myself. But somehow I started writing. Somehow I became me. Despite my own deficiencies. Somehow, there were other plans for me.

lievable statistic that: “Nearly 8 out of 10 drivers today demonstrate aggressive driving behavior” which often leads to road rage.

By definition, road rage is: “Aggressive or angry behavior exhibited by a driver of a road vehicle, which includes rude gestures, verbal insults, physical threats, or dangerous driving methods targeted toward another driver in an effort to intimidate or release frustration.”

Keep in mind, road rage is not always reported because not all road rage ends in injury or death. In fact, road rage occurs anytime a driver hollers or yells an insult or gives an obscene physical gesture from their automobile to another vehicle and mutual tempers boil over. Road rage is not always a physical altercation, although it may very well lead to that, or worse.

Therefore, the statistics of road rage is thought to be much, much higher than the record high levels already recorded. Continue your multiple-choice quiz below, and learn new insights about road rage.

TAILGATING IS AMONG THE MOST COMMON PRELUDES TO ROAD RAGE TODAY. Which demographic below commits the most tailgating incidents? A. 17-18 (Younger Z generation) B. 19-24 (Older Z generation) C. 25-39 (Millennials) D. 40-59 (Gen X) E. 60-74 (Baby Boomers) F. 75-plus (Post War)

In an analysis of 10,037 police reports and also the Foundation for Traffic Safety, the correct answer above is “C” Millennials, age 25-39, who commit the most tailgating on our roadways.

Second, is “D” Gen X age 40-59. And the (least) tailgaters are Baby Boomers (age 60-74) and the Post War generation (75 and above).

Aside from crash fatalities, road rage deaths due to gun violence have doubled compared to pre-pandemic levels.

FAILING TO ALLOW OR PREVENTING ANOTHER VEHICLE TO MERGE MAY CAUSE FRUSTRATION, ANGER & ROAD RAGE. Ignoring (or purposely preventing) another vehicle to safely merge into traffic is a common everyday scenario and can often lead to impatience, frustration, and vocal or physical confrontation. On congested public streets with heavy traffic (especially on Valley Parkway in Escondido), I always see a poor driver trying to merge from a shopping centre parking lot or a fast food

Restoring California’s Failing Mental Health Programs

California’s mental health system is struggling to keep up with demand. Those seriously in need of treatment are trapped in a rotating cycle that takes them from living on the street, to the emergency room, sometimes to jail, then back to the street. Since more serious cases get the most attention, people with milder symptoms don’t receive needed care and often fall into the same cycle.

Today, only about a third of Californians with mental illness receive the care they need, and 31 of California’s 58 counties with a “high need” for mental health services report a shortage of mental health caregivers. That must change quickly if we are to get a handle on this serious public health/safety problem. That’s why I joined Senator Scott Wiener as co-author of Senate Bill 964. Sponsored by the Steinberg Institute, the bill will create a “Behavioral Health Workforce Preservation and Restoration Fund.” SB 964 develops new coursework in our colleges and universities that focuses on behavioral health, creates an online job board where licensed providers can post job openings, eliminates bureaucratic barriers that prevent trained workers from entering the field, and requires a comprehensive analysis of California’s behavioral health workforce so we can meet the state’s growing needs. The bill also provides hiring and performance-based bonuses for workers and a stipend program for students in Master of Social Work programs with special focus on pub-

lic behavioral health.

Implementation of SB 964 will revitalize and expand California’s behavioral health workforce, and increase access to care for thousands of untreated or under-treated Californians dealing with serious mental illness and substance abuse problems. Ultimately, better care for the mentally ill will not only restore thousands of lives, it will lead to less homeless, less crime, and better, safer communities for all Californians.

Ending Homelessness

Homelessness continues to be a major issue facing San Diego County, with approximately 8,427 individuals experiencing homelessness across the County.

Pollsters at UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies asked nearly 8,500 Californian voters, including 872 San Diegans, to choose two leading concerns they would like state leaders to address. The top two statewide concerns were: 1. Housing Affordability 2. Homelessness

Whenever I meet with groups or people in our community, the most frequently asked question I receive is, 'What is being done about homelessness?' With nearly 50% of the homeless population living in California clearly, there's a problem.

My office is always looking at ways to get people off the street, into housing and treatments, if necessary. Last week, I brought forth action that will address these issues with a simple, yet impactful approach. It’s called the “ByName List.” The By-Name-List will include the name, homeless history, health, and housing needs of every person experi-

encing homelessness, by consent and updated in real-time. The list will transform the strategy to end homelessness from an anonymous issue into one focused on each individual’s needs. It will also allow for providers to be much more effective at treating and knowing each person. For example, if a homeless individual is in Chula Vista and receives treatment and a few weeks later then end up in Oceanside, homeless service providers will now have that person’s medical history that will get them what they need and address any problems going forward. It will save taxpayers money and will help get people off the street. Another benefit to the list is it will allow us to find out if the homeless programs in San Diego County are effective, or if we need to look at

Travel Troubleshooter

Q: I paid for a vacation rental in Paradise Island in the Bahamas through Vrbo. I also purchased trip cancellation through CSA Travel Protection on the Vrbo site and have confirmation.

Unfortunately, one of the members of my party is unable to travel for medical reasons. I called CSA to file a claim, but they have no record of my policy. A representative also told me they have been having problems with Vrbo confirming trip insurance but not sending the info to CSA. CSA said that I am not covered as far as they are concerned.

I reached out to Vrbo again. An agent told me to contact CSA. I even copied and pasted my insurance confirmation in the correspondence, but he wasn't interested. I also asked him for his badge number, but he said he wasn't allowed to provide it.

To resolve the problem, I would appreciate a trip insurance policy so that I can take the necessary steps to obtain a refund or a full refund directly from Vrbo. Attached are copies of the trip insurance confirmation and the cost of the rental. Can you help me, please? -- Sam Maniar, Hudson, Ohio A: If you paid for a travel insurance policy through Vrbo, you should have one. What Vrbo does -- or doesn't -- do with your money once it confirms the policy is not your problem.

Your correspondence with Vrbo clearly shows that you purchased an insurance policy. That turned out to be a smart move because the policy covers an unexpected illness. Since a member of your party can't travel, you should get a full refund for your stay.

The paper trail is confusing but it supports your position. Vrbo's system says, "the original purchase did not go through and was canceled." Yet you received a confirmation. But Vrbo also says it initiated a retroactive purchase of the trip cancellation insurance for you. So you should have been covered. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of Vrbo's executives on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. It looks like you tried to contact them but never heard back. That's problematic. There's only one way you could have known that you didn't have insurance -- and that is to monitor your credit card purchases carefully. If you're expecting a transaction and it doesn't go through, you'll need to make inquiries. That's especially important with insurance. And yes, even if you get a confirmation. I contacted Vrbo on your behalf. "This is a complex case," a Vrbo

Page 7

representative told me. "Our customer relations team has been looking into what happened with Mr. Maniar's booking and speaking with CSA to get more information. We are also providing Mr. Maniar with a full refund for the cost of his booking as a gesture of goodwill, and he will be contacted by our billing team for next steps." Vrbo refunded your stay.

Problem Solved

Q: I recently received a $6 bill from Hertz for toll charges from 2012. The company told me that a third party, Toll Processing Partners, conducted an audit during which it discovered a previous unpaid invoice. I contacted Hertz, and it suggested that I get in touch with Toll Processing Partners about the outstanding invoice. I called, but after keeping me on hold for 20 minutes, the company said it could not provide an invoice. I can't make payments on charges that are not correctly invoiced. It's unfortunate their accounting system allowed this issue to occur, but it is their issue to resolve, not mine.

I just attempted to book a reservation through Hertz. It appears I am now on the Hertz Do Not Rent list. Hertz would prefer to lose business rather than simply write off a $6 charge. Can you help me get this straightened out? -- Marcus Hall, Simi Valley, Calif. A: I can't believe this happened. Sending a 10-year-old bill is highly unusual. But banning someone by adding them to the Do Not Rent list over $6 is absurd. You're a frequent business traveler, so Hertz stood to lose a lot of money by putting you on the Do Not Rent list. And yet it did.

It wasn't your responsibility to chase down a third party involved in the transaction. After all, you rented a car from Hertz, not Toll Processing Partners. If you don't get a valid invoice, you should not have to pay.

How long can a car rental company hold you liable for your toll charges? Most businesses write off a debt after two years. (The government requires federal agencies to write it off after 24 months under most circumstances.) So Hertz was going way, way beyond normal business practices.

And how about your banning? Hertz is, of course, free to put anyone it wants on its Do Not Rent list

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

Where do We Go From Here?

As a nation we’re more divided than ever before. Liberal against Conservative. Whatever you believe there seems to be a person somewhere close by who thinks just the opposite and neither of you seems to be willing to listen to the other’s point of view.

For the past five years I’ve been writing here in The Paper about our history, but are we going to have much of a future? … one that will be as good to our grandchildren as our past has been to us? Our so-called most powerful nation on earth isn’t anymore.

Liberal Democrat Bill Maher, who is more of a sage commentator than a professed comedian, recently pointed out more than a quarter of today’s American youth couldn’t qualify for our military because they’re too fat and out of shape … that includes a good deal of our 17 to 22-year olds. Maher and I are on opposite sides of the political spectrum, but I agree with him on many of his common-sensible observations such as the above mentioned.

How many of today’s generation know anything? On-street interviews indicate just how much many of our 20-somethings don’t know simple things they should have learned in school ... like “Where is Europe?” “What city is our nation’s capital” and “who is (today’s) president?” It’s sad to tally the number of young people who couldn’t answer those questions. When simple math is presented to many of today’s youth, blank stares look back at you.

Too many of today’s youth and even those sliding closer to middle age have their nose stuck into a smart phone. It’s frightening to know that many of those staring at their phone screens are not as “smart” as that piece of Yankee ingenuity they’re holding. A friend of mine told me of an encounter he had recently with a 16year old lad who had lost his smart phone. He asked my friend if he could use his phone. The youngster was directed to the land-line phone hanging on the wall. He went over to the phone, and for a couple of moments decided how to take it off the wall. When he got it in his hand he stared at it before finally asking my friend how to proceed in making his call. Many classic car owners don’t have to fear having their vehicles stolen because most of those classic cars have standard transmissions and few people under 40 know how to operate a “stick” shift. Admittedly, that’s an unfair comparison because nearly all American-made vehicles made since the turn-of=the-century have automatic transmissions.

“Many” schools at most levels, but certainly not all, teach or offer very little history and virtually no geography. Sitting at the dinner table one evening some years ago I began quizzing my youngest son about what he was learning in school … the various world locations around the globe. At the time he was a senior in an Oceanside high

school, When I gave up on him being able to answer locations around the world I began with questions of locations of various states and cities here in America. I ask him which direction he’d go to get to San Diego. He paused. He had no sense of geographic direction because geography wasn’t offered in his school. I was a bit perplexed at that last question because the weekend before I had taken the family down to Harbor Island in San Diego for dinner. During my early days at the old BladeCitizen a young 20-something asked me how to get to San Marcos because she was going to pitch an ad contract to a restauranteur. She was raised and went to school in Del Mar. She had no idea where San Marcos was. … a city some 20 miles from where she spent all of her (to then) life.

Today our society is faced with a serious lack of “common sense.” Consider the following: does it make sense to “defund” the police? Does it make sense to let criminals to walk free without bond? How ‘bout arresting parents for trying to address school boards? When schools experience budget crunches would it make sense to lay off white teachers first, regardless of tenure before less-experienced teachers of color as some unions in Minnesota have decided? And then there’s the growing problem of “gang looting?” Should students be made to feel guilty because of the color their skin? And most of all, how much sense does it make to open our southern border to anyone who wants to walk or swim across with little or no hindrance? Without borders we don’t have a nation. For those of us who have served in the military, been loyal Americans, paid our taxes, tried to be good citizens, and obey laws, the Jan. 6, 2021 mob riot on our Nation Capitol building was an affront to our national pride, history and all loyal Americans.

Unfortunately, according to the Foundation for Traffic Safety, that is not always the case with a driver (purposely and aggressively) shutting the other vehicle out by pulling close to the car ahead, which is stopped for a long red light. AMONG MALE & FEMALE DRIVERS, WHICH GENDER IS MOST LIKELY TO (ALLOW) A VEHICLE TO MERGE INTO CITY TRAFFIC AS MENTIONED ABOVE? A. Male drivers. B. Female drivers.

Correct answer above is “B” female drivers. While there are many courteous male drivers, female motorists are far more likely to “take pity” on a car waiting to merge into a long line of stopped cars at a red light intersection. Almost 40% of male drivers will (purposely prevent) or just ignore another vehicle hoping to safely merge.

IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY, WHAT ARE THE PRIMARY REASONS FOR INCITING ROAD RAGE? As cited at the top of this news story, San Diego County is among the most dangerous cities in America for road rage. In San Diego County, (among) the primary reasons for inciting road rage for our particular metropolitan region are:

1. Abruptly cutting off another vehicle. 2. Tailgating. 3. Talking on the cell phone while driving. 4. Abruptly changing lanes while speeding. 5. Rude gestures and/or cursing at another driver. And it’s not just San Diego that ranks high in road rage, but California – as a whole -- is among the most dangerous states for road rage related shootings!

I think you could have easily resolved this with a brief, polite email to Hertz. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of the Hertz executives on my consumer advocacy site.

I contacted Hertz on your behalf. A representative contacted you by email shortly afterward. "Please accept my sincere apology for the delay in this toll charge being brought to your attention," the Hertz representative said.

SPECIAL THANKS. Once again, I wish to thank all my reader fans who continue to send me great cover story ideas! Please keep all those wonderful story suggestions coming! I have not met all of you. Many of you are anonymous, some online fans out-of-state, and even some in Europe. Nonetheless, you are all greatly valued. And all greatly loved. Each and everyone.

Precautionary rules to follow:

1. Always keep a safe distance between you and other vehicles on the road. 2. Always use your turn signals to communicate your intentions. Never cut anyone off. 3. Give room for other drivers to merge. 4. Refrain from rude hand gestures and/or offensive or inflammatory language. 5. Practice patience at all intersections, in traffic, or waiting for a parking spot. 6. Refrain from using your high beams unless necessary to see. 7. Abide by the rules of the road at all times and be courteous to your fellow drivers. ALWAYS REMEMBER: You have a family and loved ones who depend on you, and your safe return home. Road rage exists everywhere, all the time, so promise yourself that you will not be its next victim.

WHAT TO DO IN A ROAD RAGE SITUATION. You may be a perfectly courteous and respectful law-abiding driver and, still, you may fall prey to an irrational, drunk, or angry driver through no fault of your own. You never know who is in the other car; they may be a dangerous felon, someone high on drugs, suicidal, or armed with a deadly weapon. 1. If you or your family are in a road rage situation, the best course of action is to remain calm and remain focused on your driving and getting to your destination safely.

2. Do not engage with the other driver. Do not return gestures or remarks made at you. 3. Avoid eye contact.

4. Be sure you and your passengers keep all your seat belts securely buckled in case of unexpected braking. 5. If someone is following you as the result of a road rage situation, avoid going to your home and try to pull into a police station, fire station, or another heavily populated area.

6. When you safely reach your destination, call 911 (or have one of your passengers do so if en route).

7. Write down or provide a fully detailed report of the incident, and prepare to appear in court (if necessary).

Personally, I feel it is a good idea to write out one’s own obituary in advance, leaving out the date of death, of course. Then what is important to the person is said for all to read and know. Our Obituary

A friend and I were discussing the news recently and he told me that the first thing he reads are the obituaries. I asked him why that was so interesting and he said, “I wanted to see if I was in the list and what was said about me. I also was curious about how old most of the deceased were. I always take satisfaction in knowing I have outlived them.”

On the other hand, it might be one last attempt on the part of the family to extol the virtues and accomplishments of a life. Of course, we would want to leave out the questionable information.

I find it interesting that he amused himself with this information. When I read the obituaries of someone I knew,I am always amazed at how much is written about the person I never knew. Most families spend hours gathering the bits and pieces of a person’s life. It must be a challenge at times. How would the deceased feel, reading what others felt was important? Would one be flattered or incensed if an important fact was left out? Perhaps it would be wise to keep a log of one’s own life, giving credit where credit is due and leaving out the superfluous. At least, when the time comes, as it will for each of us, the data will be there.

There might even be some honest appraisal of disappointments and accomplishments. Either way, it would be the testimony of the deceased.

Such is the case of a retired group I oversee. Each is writing a synopsis of her/his life and what has been important. It gives one a chance to flatter the self or at least do some self analysis, or ask how one truly thinks of the self, warts and all. Now, the next time you read an obituary, remember it is what others think was important. What do you want said about you? Think about that.

Vista’s Growin g Coffee Scene

Something’s brewing in Vista, and our city is becoming increasingly caffeinated with a growing coffee scene.

While other areas of North County have long been known for their strong culture of shops and roasters, new, upcoming, and seasoned coffee shops with a twist are growing the culture in Vista. Steel Mill Coffee and the soon to be opened Archer’s Arrow, both on Main Street, and Cat and Craft cat café in the Business Park have all made their homes in the city and are bringing new flavor notes to the growing scene. Also based in downtown is Brewed Vista, which is known for its gourmet coffee and craft beers. Downtown’s VistaisOpen.com provides self-guided tour podcasts and you can click the audio on their website to listen to the self-guided tours while taking in all of what our unique and vibrant downtown has to offer!

Even your declassified data on "Nazi Germany's Race to Produce the World's First Atom Bomb & Stealth Technology" was shocking and illuminatiing for all of us!

-----From Patrick Flannigan & his big Irish Clan, North San Diego County. From Another Writer

Publishers are humans,too. The old joke, who asked Mary Todd Lincoln,"Other than the shooting Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?" Answer. The playwright.

Yes, we writers are ego driven, though most would not agree that is true. We all love to get compliments on our work. A natural and healthy desire. In your case you have a fine line to walk selecting the writer, the topic and giving the writer the freedom to say what has to be said. An exacting task. When all this comes to fruition and resonates with a reader who takes the time to actually write to you, by all means strut. Most of us get far too few accolades for what we do. Also, some say that for everyone who took the time to write, 10 others had the same thought. Bust the buttons on your shirt. Smile. Smile. Smile. Ain't life grand?. /s/ Pete Peterson, Escondido, CA. (A frequent contributor to The Paper)

Greetings Escondido,

A City’s role in general is to provide services that add to the Quality of Life of its residents. The quality of those services help define the profile and reputation of the city. And as we all know, the better we can make them, the more desirable the city becomes to live, work, play and invest.

The city doesn’t do this alone, other entities both public and private contribute to the overall reputation. Entities like the school districts, or the Chamber of Commerce have an impact. Recently our Chamber of Commerce hosted a wellreceived Green Energy Expo that served among other things to show our interest in being good stewards of the land.

A city’s role also includes the mandate to create opportunities for business growth and development. Our staff recently announced the initiation of a Business Incubator concept with a focus on AgTech. A lot of prep work went into this in and out of the city. The University of California showed a lot of interest in, and support of the concept. It will be the first one in Southern California. The city will be hosting an AgTech Startup Hackathon Event on October 21st through the 23rd. Keep an eye out on the City’s Website for details in registering. It is open to everyone. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

Lying. 5th District Supervisor Jim Desmond can’t be quite as blunt as your irascible, grumpy old editor. But I can and did say it.

I don’t trust SANDAG. They’ve lied to us before and diverted funds that should have come to North San Diego County. And now it appears they have lied again - lying by omission of information is just as bad as a bald faced lie. I’m beginning to think it’s time to start buying buckets of tar and big bundles of feathers . . . and letting SANDAG know, in no uncertain terms, how the people feel about their underhanded ways. Supervisor Desmond had this to say. lyle --

SANDAG has been told by the State of California that they should include the per-mile tax or possibly come up with a new transportation plan. The Board of Directors has urged them to remove the per-mile tax, yet the entire $162.5 billion plan relies on the ability to charge people for every mile they drive, demonstrating how completely out of touch SANDAG is to the challenges and needs of San Diegans. It’s time for SANDAG to come back to the table and find a suitable plan

In early August “The Union Tribune” announced the results of their annual “San Diego’s Best” reader’s poll. For the seventh year in a row, THE COMPUTER FACTORY in San Marcos was voted the #1 “Computer store” in North County.

While that in itself is an accomplishment, here are some other interesting things about The Computer Factory.

Since 2010 the Internet, with its access to virtually the entire range of human knowledge, has come to dominate PC usage. PCs and to a large extent smart phones have become little more than Internet access devices. Since the 1970s we have been conditioned to think of computers and cell phones as part of an ever evolving, ever improving technological process that renders our older devices obsolete every couple of years. That all changed as the Internet became the main focus of technology over the last few years. Making the entire universe of human knowledge available and inventing innovative ways process and use it became a job for high speed, high power Internet servers. Our PCs no longer need fast CPUs, mass storage devices and lots of memory to hold and process data from the Internet. For the most part our PCs need only to receive, display and transfer data.

Nearly all PCs built after 2009 have CPU speeds sufficient to run Internet applications in real time. A brand new, high-end Dell, HP or

of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776 after years of colonists becoming frustrated and the king becoming more belligerent. However, it wasn’t until September 17th, 1787, that this fledgling country became the United States of America with the signing of the Constitution. It wasn’t until the Constitution was written and adopted as the law of the land that this country, these people, would become one. In 1955 the Daughters of the American Revolution petitioned Congress to set aside a week in September to honor the United States Constitution, and in so doing, to garner public attention, to encourage the study, and thus, the understanding of and respect for the law of the land. Public Law 91 was signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaiming September 17-23 as Constitution Week in America. This annual event honors the legacy of our patriot ancestors, their willingness to give everything for the sake of independence. Honoring our Constitution and its legacy is reason to celebrate.

for all of San Diego County. The current transportation plan neglects North & East County and instead focuses on downtown San Diego.

It taxes working-class families and the underserved communities that aren’t able to afford to live next to where they work. It crushes landscapers, plumbers, farmers, electricians, parents and families, and anyone who must drive or work and live away from fixed rail lines to make a living. San Diegans deserve a world-class transportation system, but it must be thought out carefully and must be presented to the taxpayers, not decided by bureaucrats.

This is just one reason why The Paper has strongly endorsed Jim Desmond for re-election as 5th District Supervisor. He is in touch with the community and knows what the people want and he fights for them (us).

Valley Center History Museum: Who knew "Hercules" could cook? By ROBERT LERNER, Historian Valley Center History Museum

The Valley Center History Museum has several cookbooks on exhibit, all attributed to the local woman who portrayed the fictitious cooking icon Betty Crocker. Joining this fabled group of books is one by the late Steve Reeves, better known as a world-class bodybuilder, movie star, and Valley Center rancher.

Reeves, who lived in Valley Center for 43 years before dying in 2000, appeared in more than 20 motion pictures, but was best known as the star of "Hercules" and for staying fit and healthy.

The book, called "Steve Reeves Hercules Cookbook," states that the material reveals his food recipes and nutritional secrets. Promotional material points out correctly that the film hero inspired millions of people to become fit before fitness was cool. The 104page book includes recipes for his meals and special nutritional drinks made from fresh fruits. The Valley Center Historical Society was told by a co-editor that data was taken from home recipe cards and personal interviews. Before gaining world-wide fame, Reeves attended chiropractic school and also studied physical therapy.

At the museum, a permanent exhibition features memorabilia from each part of his life. There are photos of body-building competitions (he was Mr. America, Mr. World and Mr. Universe), motion picture souvenirs (at one time he was number one at the box office) and mementos of his ranching years in Valley Center (a saddle, branding iron, tack equipment, and personal photos).

For more information on Steve Reeves, visit the Valley Center History Museum at 29200 Cole Grade Road. Hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free. The museum can be reached via e-mail at museum@vchistory.org or by calling 760-749-2993.
