We have two memorable days ahead of us. This coming Monday, May 27th, is Memorial Day; a few days later, on Thursday, June 6th, we remember D-Day.

We been involved, and are involved, in war activities. Iraq, Afghanistan, and a number of countries where we are operating clandestinely. It’s amazing that we see Americans expressing their horror at how many casualThe Paper - 760.747.7119

ties we’ve suffered in the wars. In Iraq, an estimated 11,784; in Afghanistan, an estimated 2220 (3305 Coalition deaths). As bad as these numbers are, they pale in comparison to what our nation endured during World War II. The sacrifices this nation is making to support the costs, both in blood and treasure, also pales in comparison to WWII.

Consider, for example, that during WWII an average 6600

American service men died per MONTH. That comes to about 220 per day.

No matter how one looks at it, these statistics for WWII are incredible.

That is why, this Memorial Day, this D-Day, we all should pause to honor those who have died, in peacetime, as civilians, family and friends, and especially those who were or are in the military who are serving our nation and either have paid,

or ar ready to pay, the ultimate price for freedom and liberty.

In order to protect the heritage of those veterans who have gone before us, we must diligently and defiantly demand that our American Constitutional Rights be respected and honored. There are those today who seek to take some of those rights and liberties away.

We must not allow them to get away with it!

• Most Americans who were not adults during WWII have no understanding of the magnitude of it. Statistics can be boring things, but they can also bring to the forefront just how much we have paid, in both blood and treasure.

According to the AAF Statistical Digest, in less than four years (December 1941August 1945), the US Army Air Forces lost 14,903 pilots, aircrew and assorted personnel plus 13,873 airplanes --inside the continental United States. They were the result of 52,651 aircraft accidents (6,039 involving fatalities) in 45 months.

Think about those numbers. They average 1,170 aircraft accidents per month---- nearly 40 a day. (However, less than one accident in four resulted in total loss of the aircraft) It gets worse.....

Escondido City Council to Consider Charter School Proposal

Dennis Snyder, Founder and CEO of the Escondido Charter High School and its Elementary School component, has made a proposal to the Escondido City Council to lease the former site of Escondido’s East Valley library branch for use as a charter school campus. The Escondido City Council was to consider the proposal at Wednesday’s (5/22/13) meeting. Critics say the proposal to lease the former branch and some adjacent property to Heritage Digital Academy would eliminate any chance of reviving the branch and stymie a plan to open a small reading room nearby and argue the $3.4 million invested to open the center should be used for its intended purpose.

Under the proposal, Escondido Charter would pay $14,000 per month to the city, a total of $1.8 million over a 10 year period, plus

investing another $1.2 in renovation.

“I can’t believe people oppose something that will support one of the best schools in Escondido and put so much money into the city’s recreation programs,” Mayor Sam Abed said Monday. “We could use this money to expand pool hours and open the main library on Sundays.” The lease covers mostly vacant space and the site of two businesses — the Escondido Education COMPACT and Modern Haircuts Plus. The businesses received 90-day eviction notices last week.

“In view of the outstanding reputation for educating our youngsters, of the above market rates the school will be paying, being aware that the property has been advertised for lease for almost two years, and weighing the greater benefit to the community, The Paper has decided to endorse Coach Snyder’s proposal and urges the Escondido City Council to favorably consider approving this project, after appropriate public input,” said lyle e davis, editor and Peru, for three years where Kurt will be serving as the Mission President. In this assignment the Marler's will preside over 220+ missionaries, providing training and leadership. Kurt Marler has had his dental practice for 33 years. He had not planned on going to Peru but his church called him and he and Kathy responded positively. His partner, Dr. J. J. Campbell, will continue the practice in his absence. After his three year service, he plans on returning to his practice.

Dedication: Dr. Kurt Marler and his wife, Kathy, have been fixtures on the Escondido scene for years. Now, Dr. Marler is leaving a thriving dental practice so that he and his wife may serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, those folks most of us know as Mormons. They will leave for Trujillo,

They will not return to Escondido during their service but their families might visit them; meantime, they’ll be in touch via phone, email, and Skype.

The family leaves for Peru at the end of June. Having served his mission in Puerto Rico, Kurt is fluent in Spanish. Kurt's parents moved to Escondido in 1959, where his father, Don Marler practiced dentistry. Kurt attended

Government Contractor at Camp Pendleton Sentenced

An Oceanside man, Michael Tuisee, 34, has been sentenced to six months in prison, then six months of house arrest and three years of supervised release. Tuisee also was ordered to pay nearly $180,000 in restitution to the Marine Corps and forfeit $8,250 in illegal proceeds. U.S. Attorney Laura E. Duffy said Tuisee sought to profit at the expense of injured U.S. troops. He was charged with stealing medical equipment from Camp Pendleton that was to be shipped to Marines overseas.

Michael Tuisee, 34, was one of three civilian defense contractors charged in the case. All three men worked at medical-supply warehouses on the base. The other defendants, Henry Bonilla, 25, of Pomona, and

Letters to the Editor Retirement?

Dear Editor,

I have read your article on "Retiring Abroad On The Cheap" with much interest. I have just retired myself and have spent a huge amount of time on that very subject. In my point of view I consider the San Diego area a great place to retire. The weather is almost perfect, lots of golf courses, casinos, good hospitals, and the list goes on and on with positive aspects of retiring in this area. We travel a considerable amount of

As sometimes happens in this business, we had a major meltdown with the cover story once it had been “completed” and handed over for proof reading. Eagle Eye Evelyn Madison spotted something wrong. A major portion of the cover story had part of her column instead of the original story. We had to delete her duplicate column (which didn’t affect her original column) but, in the process, old Mr. Bumble, (Evelyn’s sometimes affectionate term for the editor and publisher of this here paper) had finished off the cover story. It looked good and the proofing showed no errors. (Evelyn, we learned, cannot proof what she cannot see; if I left a major portion of the story out . . . no way she could proof it.) That is how the remainder of the story slipped by and did not get printed.

Summer is just around the corner and the city-owned water park – on about 3 acres north of state Route 78 at Vista Village Drive is ready to go! It has a competition-size pool, four water slides, a lazy river, the “Rippity’s Rainforest” children’s play area and a “Flow Rider” wave machine.

Lots of happy people with the Wave Park but there are some taxpayers that aren’t so happy. They argue the city is subsidizing a park that is losing money. Five years ago there was a $9 million deficit; that has been cut to today’s $2 million. Some critics have suggested closing or selling the park to

Both have carpeting that needs replacement, Cole needs a new roof, as well as other incidentals.

Together the maintenance, upgrades and some remodeling are expected to cost about $5 million and may require each library to close for six to eight weeks.

Most of the work would be done during a single closure at each location to minimize any inconvenience to library patrons, Pizzuto said. To keep up with modern technology, both libraries need improved wireless equipment to eliminate dead spots, the installation of more electrical outlets for patrons who need to plug in, and a better layout for seating and service areas.

Comedians Bob Perkell, Kristin Key and Ron Pearson will be hosting an exciting matinee at 3pm and evening show at 7pm as a fundraiser for The Fellowship Center in Escondido who is celebrating their 50th anniversary. Entitled “We Are Not a Glum Lot III,” the goal of this unique comedy event, now in its third year, is to bring laughter to those in drug and alcohol recovery, as well as to their friends and family. Comedian Bob Perkell explains, “The last two years were sold out so this year we added a second matinee show.” The three comedians involved in the two June 29th shows are all national headliners with a long list of entertainment accomplishments. Perkell has appeared on Comedy Central, Showtime, and B.E.T. Comedienne Kristin Key is best known for being a season favorite on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Comics Unleashed, and appears regularly on VH1’s “100 Greatest” series. Also on the bill is Ron Pearson who juggles in his act and juggles his Hollywood career. Ron has made hundreds of TV appearances doing stand-up on shows like The Late, Late Show, Chelsea Lately, and Comedy Central. Ron’s first comedy special earned him three Telly Awards, and he was nominated Corporate Comedian of the Year! The Fellowship Center is the first nonprofit residential facility for the treatment of alcoholism and drug abuse in North San Diego County, and has been recognized as a leader in the field of residential addiction services throughout the state and national levels.

The Doctor is In! is their participation in continuing education courses “after” graduation that allows them to expand their capabilities and keep up with the latest trends in treatment. Dental schools require time to make major curriculum changes to incorporate all the newest developments that are constantly being discovered.

What Should Your Dentist Know?

“We learn something new every day.” This adage certainly holds true especially in the fields of medicine and dentistry today. With technology changing so much and so rapidly, it is now more important than ever for your dentist to be a lifelong student. The skills taught in today’s dental schools prepare a graduating dentist with a basic background of treatments … but it

The “drill them and fill them” of old times has passed, with the new paradigm being that of comprehensive treatment to preserve optimal oral and whole body health. This new model necessarily requires your dentist to incorporate a broader examination of ALL the factors affecting your health and necessitates the inclusion of more treatment modalities to meet their patients’ needs and working with other dental and medical specialist to cure their patients.

Although your medical doctor does a cursory check with his tongue blade, your dentist and hygienist have a more intimate relationship and are better able

to detect problems their patients may be encountering. With the new technologies dentists can more easily discover diseases, cancers, and infections, refer patients, and save lives. Some of the newer treatments learned through continuing education include: Sleep Apnea and snoring which are becoming epidemic, can now be detected, tested and treated, allowing you to stay healthier and more rested, while avoiding surgery. New treatments of migraines and jaw joint issues provide patients new remedies, often without the need for strong pain medications, many of which are addictive.

New Oral CT scans allow precise planning for placement of bone and implants. Implant designs continually get better and enhance our ability to eat and speak efficiently even at an older age.

Cosmetic dentistry has progressed to where we not only look at the factors affecting your smile, but face as well. We can incorporate the use of

implants and oral appliances to help our patients eat, sleep, look and feel better. Lasers can now help with treating periodontal disease, in many cases eliminating more invasive surgery.

Finally, scanners which have developed over time will soon be precise enough to where “taking an impression” of your mouth to place a crown or denture, will simply involve the waving of a ‘wand”!

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth The Computer Factory

What We Do

The Computer Factory has been on the SW corner of Bent Ave and San Marcos Blvd for eighteen years. Although some things have changed over the years, our core business is pretty much the same as it was when we opened. We build PCs for all applications and we upgrade and repair all PC brands. “We build the best and fix the rest” is our mantra. We’ve built thousands of new PCs and repaired or upgraded tens of thousands since 1995.

Most new PCs have been for local home and business users but our PCs have been shipped all over the world. We’ve built solar powered controllers for mountain top navigation stations in Portugal, scores of rack-mounted,

May Revise Falls Short

Last week, the Governor released his May Revise to the state budget. It includes some practical policies but few plans for improving California’s economy. I am pleased to see a sales tax exemption for manufacturing equipment proposal in the Governor’s May Revise. This is something I have long fought for, and I have introduced similar legislation numerous times.

However, there is little else in the budget plan that shows that job creation is the top priority. Our budget should be more responsive to Californians’ need for more jobs and economic growth. We cannot ignore an unemployment rate that continues to rank one of the high-

shipboard PCs for the world’s largest ocean bottom mapping company and our PCs continue to be used as integrated controllers in design workstations and automated assembly equipment both here and abroad.

We’ve built servers, gamers, design and animation workstations, flight simulators and daytrader systems. We’ve built PCs in Doggie and Kitty Cat cases, burled walnut and transparent cases, alien and transformer cases, full towers, mini towers, micro towers, desktops, rack mounts, lunch boxes and cubes. While it’s fun to build these “specials,” well over 90% of the PCs that we build are basic home or business towers.

power supplies. While “parts” sales were never a significant part of our business, they were always a major headache. Frequently “parts” were returned because the DIY either bought the wrong part or didn’t know how to install it. Equally as often they would call us for technical support when they got in over their heads. When Fry’s moved in across the street a few years ago it had two major impacts on our business. First, having Fry’s right across the street gave our business a significant boost simply because of the increased exposure and traffic. Second, it provided us the oppor-

tunity to stop selling “over the counter” components to the DIY folks. Processing returns and refunds is costly and often involves unpleasant confrontations with customers. Fry’s has lots of experience handling unhappy customers and have it down to an art form. We’ve never had enough unhappy customers to get good at it. We still stock and sell all the “parts” that we once did but now we sell them only as part of an upgrade or repair service. We provide a one-year parts and labor warranty for our work. Today you can count on one hand the number of returns we process in a year.

Some things have changed over the years. We do a lot more onsite support installing and maintaining business and home networks. We also started selling and repairing notebook PCs a few years ago. We do not sell or repair printers, game boxes or Apple products.

We used to sell PC components to the DIY (do-it-yourself) crowd. In the early days there were a lot of hobbyists building and repairing their own PCs. We felt obligated to help these “shade tree technicians” by selling them components like memory, motherboards, video cards, CPUs and

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Volcanos & Full Moons

The newest art exhibition to arrive at the Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA), Volcanos and Full Moons, celebrates the work of legendary artist Ernest Silva. Beginning May 25 through September 15, OMA will be hosting these comic, contemplative and expressive artworks from Silva’s distinguished career that spans over four decades. Silva derives his imagery from a variety of sources: popular culture, art history, family photographs and vintage storybook covers of the 1950s. Through his drawings and paint-

ings on the walls and the props on the floor, Silva encourages the viewer to become part of the story, losing the separation between artist, art and audience.

This is going to be a wonderful experience for all those individuals interested in taking art to a new level and gaining an appreciation for an artist dedicated to enlightening and challenging the minds of others. Be sure not to miss this great event by visiting OMA at 704 Pier View Way in Oceanside. For more information on this exhibition and upcoming OMA events, check out their website at or call them at (760) 435-3720. Enjoy!

‘Chuckles’ Cont. from Page 7 Smart) Wife

"Have you ever seen Twenty Dollars all crumpled up?"...the woman asked her husband. "No"...said her husband.

She gave him a sexy little smile, unbuttoned the top 3 or 4 buttons of her blouse ... and slowly reached down into the cleavage created by a soft, silky push-up bra...and pulled out a crumpled Twenty Dollar bill. He took the crumpled Twenty Dollar bill from her ...and smiled approvingly.

"Have you ever seen Fifty Dollars all crumpled up?"... she then asked her husband? ", I haven't" ...he said (with an anxious tone in his voice). She gave him another sexy little smile, pulled up her skirt, and seductively reached into her tight, sheer panties... and pulled out a crumpled Fifty Dollar bill.

He took the crumpled Fifty Dollar bill... and started breathing a little quicker with anticipation. "Now" ...she said. "Have you ever seen $50,000 Dollars all crumpled up?" "No way" ...he said (while obviously becoming even more aroused... and excited). "Well go look garage!"...she said.



Mudder’s Day

When me prayers were poorly said, Who tucked me in me widdle bed, And spanked me till me ass was red? Me Mudder Who took me from me cozy cot And put me on me ice-cold pot, And made me pee pee if I could not? Me Mudder

And when the morning light would come, And in me crib me dribble some, Who wipe me tiny widdle bum? Me Mudder

Who would me hair so gently part, And hug me gently to her heart,

And sometimes squeeze me till me fart? Me Mudder When at night the bed did squeak, Me raised me head to have a peek, Who yelled at me to go to sleep?

August 1943, 60 B-17s were shot down. That was a 16 percent loss rate and meant 600 empty bunks in England. In 1942-43 it was statistically impossible for bomber crews to complete a 25-mission tour in Europe . Pacific theatre losses were far less (4,530 in combat) owing to smaller forces committed. The worst B-29 mission, against Tokyo on May 25, 1945, cost 26 Superfortresses, 5.6 percent of the 464 dispatched from the Marianas. By the end of the war, over 40,000 airmen were killed in combat theatres and another 18,000 wounded. Some 12,000 missing men were declared dead, including a number "liberated" by the Soviets but never returned.

More than 41,000 were captured, half of the 5,400 held by the Japanese died in captivity, compared with onetenth in German hands. Total combat casualties were pegged at 121,867.

However, our enemies took massive losses. Through much of 1944, the Luftwaffe sustained uncontrolled hemorrhaging, reaching 25 percent of aircrews and 40 planes a month. And in late 1944 into 1945, nearly half the pilots in Japanese squadrons had flown fewer than 200 hours. The disparity of two years before had been completely reversed. Experience Level:

Uncle Sam sent many of his sons to war with absolute minimums of training. Some fighter pilots entered combat in 1942 with less than one hour in their assigned aircraft. The 357th Fighter Group (often known as The Yoxford Boys) went to England in late 1943 having trained on P-39s. The group never saw a Mustang until shortly before its first combat mission. A high-time P-51 pilot had 30 hours in type. Many had fewer than five hours. Some had one hour.

With arrival of new aircraft, many combat units transitioned in combat. The attitude was, "They all have a stick and a throttle. Go fly “em." When the famed 4th Fighter Group converted from P-47s to P-51s in February 1944, there was no time to stand down for an orderly transition.

their wheels in the well on their first combat mission with one previous flight in the aircraft. Meanwhile, many bomber crews were still learning their trade: of Jimmy Doolittle's 15 pilots on the April 1942 Tokyo raid, only five had won their wings before 1941. All but one of the 16 copilots were less than a year out of flight school. In WWII flying safety took a back seat to combat. The AAF's worst accident rate was recorded by the A-36 Invader version of the P-51: a staggering 274 accidents per 100,000 flying hours. Next worst were the P-39 at 245, the P-40 at 188, and the P-38 at 139. All were Allison powered. Bomber wrecks were fewer, but more expensive. The B17 and B-24 averaged 30 and 35 accidents per 100,000 flight hours, respectively-- a horrific figure considering that from 1980 to 2000 the Air Force's major mishap rate was less than two.

The B-29 was even worse at 40; the world's most sophisticated, most capable and most expensive bomber was too urgently needed to stand down for mere safety reasons. The AAF set a reasonably high standard for B-29 pilots, but the desired figures were seldom attained.

US manpower made up the deficit. The Army Air Force's peak strength was reached in 1944 with 2,372,000 personnel, nearly twice the previous year's figure. AMERICA AT WORK

The losses were huge---but so were production totals. From 1941 through 1945, American industry delivered more than 276,000 military aircraft. That number was enough not only for US Army, Navy and Marine Corps, but for allies as diverse as Britain, Australia, China and Russia. In fact, from 1943 onward, America produced more planes than Britain and Russia combined. And more than Germany and Japan together 1941-45.

The Group commander, Col. Donald Blakeslee, said, "You can learn to fly`51s on the way to the target.’

The original cadre of the 58th Bomb Wing was to have 400 hours of multi-engine time, but there were not enough experienced pilots to meet the criterion. Only ten percent had overseas experience. Conversely, when a $2.1 bil-

lion B-2 crashed in 2008, the Air Force initiated a twomonth "safety pause" rather than declare a "stand down," let alone grounding.

The B-29 was no better for maintenance. Though the R3350 was known as a complicated, troublesome powerplant, no more than half the mechanics had previous experience with the Duplex Cyclone. But they made it work.

The B29 Superfortress Navigators:

Perhaps the greatest unsung success story of AAF training was Navigators. The Army graduated some 50,000 during the War. And many had never flown out of sight of land before leaving "Uncle Sugar" for a war zone. Yet the huge majority found their way across oceans and continents without getting lost or running out of fuel --a stirring tribute to the AAF's educational establishments. Cadet To Colonel:

It was possible for a flying cadet at the time of Pearl Harbor to finish the war with eagles on his shoulders. That was the record of John D. Landers, a 21-year-old Texan, who was commissioned a second lieutenant on December 12, 1941. He joined his combat squadron with 209 hours total flight time, including two in P-40s. He finished the war as a full colonel, commanding an 8th Air Force Group --- at age 24. As the training pipeline filled up, however those low figures

May 23, 2013 - Page 15

became exceptions.

By early 1944, the average AAF fighter pilot entering combat had logged at least 450 hours, usually including 250 hours in training. At the same time, many captains and first lieutenants claimed over 600 hours. FACT:

At its height in mid-1944, the Army Air Forces had 2.6 million people and nearly 80,000 aircraft of all types. Today the US Air Force employs

327,000 active personnel (plus 170,000 civilians) with 5,500+ manned and perhaps 200 unmanned aircraft. The 2009 figures represent about 12 percent of the manpower and 7 percent of the airplanes of the WWII peak. IN SUMMATION:

Whether there will ever be another war like that experienced in 1940-45 is doubtful, as fighters and bombers have given way to helicopters and remotely-controlled drones over Afghanistan and Iraq. But within living memory, men left the earth in 1,000plane formations and fought major battles five miles high, leaving a legacy that remains timeless.

Retiring Abroad and doing it on the Cheap . . . Lic: 8980404 & bonded

Editor’s Note: Due to an editing error, two cities were left our of last week’s cover story carrying the above title. Here are those two stories. The Paper regrets the error. Valencia, Spain

The subprime mortgage crisis caused property values to plummet everywhere, including Spain, making the Mediterranean nation suddenly affordable for a number of retirees. The euro crisis notwithstanding, the southeastern coastal city of Valencia offers hundreds of villas, apartments and houses for less than $200,000. New one-bedroom apartments in the city sell for less than 50,000 euros ($65,575). For those who do not want to invest in real estate, rentals are cheap and plentiful. A two-bedroom apartment in the center of Valencia rents for 600 euros per month ($780).

Groceries sold in traditional open-air markets cost the same or less than supermarket prices back in the States, while low property taxes keep the cost of living low for expats in Spain. The country offers free public health coverage, and additional health insurance rarely exceeds $300 per month. Prescription medicines are almost always a fraction of what they would be in America. Valencia is a great option for retirees who want to spend their golden years traveling. Its airport offers direct flights to France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Morocco and Norway. Round-trip flights to the rest of Europe often cost less than 150 euros ($195).

Lake Atitlan is about 75 miles away from Guatemala City and is surrounded by volcanoes and villages where Mayan traditions still thrive. The area has perennial spring-like temperatures ranging from the 60s to 80s Fahrenheit. Several waterfront houses are available for rent on the lake; a three-bedroom house costs around $300 per month to rent.

Other expenses remain extremely low in this retiree-friendly part of Guatemala. "Restaurants cost about $10 per dinner and $3 (to) $4 for breakfast," says Andy Lee Graham, founder of The cheapest foods are also the healthiest; fresh fruits and vegetables cost about a third less in local markets than they do in the U.S.

Doug Best Broadcasting Legend - WWII Aircrew, Lancaster Bomber

You hear his deep, baritone voice ever Saturday on KKSM, the Palomar College radio station, as he plays the Big Band era hits.

Doug has been around awhile, in broadcasting since 1950. I’ll do the math for you. That’s 63 years behind the microphone.

This issue of The Paper is particularly well suited to take a bit

Before leaving Canada, however, Doug was to have his most miserable experience with an airplane: “The first time I ever got in an airplane was when I was in MacDonald (in Winnepeg, Manitoba.) There had been a big blizzard at night, we went out to fly; they finally had gotten the runway cleared of snow, but large snow drifts remained on the side. One of the two engines on our Wellignton quit while running for take-off - and we landed in a snowbank!”

“69 of us graduated from Gunnery School; we agreed to have a party in Montreal, if and when we got back from Europe. At the reunion, only 9 of the 69 showed up. We don’t know if they were POW’s, wounded, or killed.”

For those who require assisted living, a full-time personal nurse can be hired for $15 to $20 per day, says Graham. "A maid is about $4 (to) $10 per day."

Graham recommends using taxis or tuk-tuks in Guatemala, which he notes are very cheap. Tuk-tuks are three-wheeled motorized versions of rickshaws. "Tuk-tuks will go between cities for about $3 (to) $5 per city. Inside metropolitan areas, they cost 75 cents for one trip." He warns that, "Driving a car is dangerous, but taxis are safe." Andy estimates that retirees need $1,000 per month to live near Lake Atitlan.

The Best Brothers, Bruce (left) Doug (right)

deeper look at ‘ol Doug Best,’ as he is called, because Doug was also around during that little disturbance known as World War II. Yep. Old Doug Best, was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on September 24th, 1925. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force on his 18th birthday in 1943 and, after three years training, headed for Jolly Olde England in June of 1945, there to meet the famous Lancaster Bomber which was to be his home for the duration of the war.

D-Day took place while Doug was on board a troop ship but he would fly o v e r Normany many times, as well as major cities in Germany: E s s e n , Cologne, Hamburg, and Leipzig, just to name a few.

Doug was the Mid Upper Gunner, flying out of #6 Bomber Command, based in the northern part of England . . Middleton, St. George.

The Lancaster was a four engine bomber. Doug didn’t get into them until arriving in England. “It’s a very, very, good four engine bomber. It carried the biggest load next to a B29. (16,000 lbs bombs, 2300 gallons of gas at takeoff) a lot of stuff to get into air.

A clergyman was reading the burial service in the course of a funeral. Coming to the lines which refer to “our dear brother or sister,” he realized that he had forgotten the gender of the departed and whispered to a man standing close by, “Is it a brother or a sister?” “Ah, neither,” said the man, “just a cousin.” There was an illiterate man who tried to sue the baker for forging his signature on the hot cross buns.

We also carried 4000 lb. blockbusters.

There was no precision to it; we went over one morning to Essen during a daylight mission, 1100 bombers over Essen, we dropped the big blockbuster and some 1000 pounders . . . then incendiaries, then headed for home. Quite an experience. A few days later, Cologne, was hit with 1300 bombers. This was late in the war because most of our missions were daylight. We had taken air supriority away from the Luftwafe. We did some scatter bombing in France, in support of occupation troops.

One night we were flying at about 20,000 ft. We knew we’d been hit but didn’t know we had such a big hole in the starboard side of the plane. AAA had hit us and blew a big hole . . . I stepped out of my turret when we landed . . . I about fell on my face when I saw it. A huge hole was in the fuselage . . . I didn’t know it till we landed. We were always cold at 20,000’. We just had to tough it out. We had heavy jackets and boots, but it was way below zero at that altitude. We didn’t have frostbite, but it was mighty uncomfortable.

I had to stay in the turret for the mission in case we had to take evasive action to avoid other aircraft. I was in that turret for nine hours - the tail gunner was just as cramped as I was. But, we were young, wiry, and strong. Once back on the ground a cup of coffee or rum and we were fine.

In the earlier stages they flew mostly nighttime flights, however, one mission over Hamburg was a memorable daylight run. A whole Squadron of ME262’s (the German Jets) attacked Doug’s Lancaster. Even with the hydraulic power powering the turrets they could not move quickly enough to track the jets, let alone fire at them. “The Germans were good fliers and their AAA (AntiAircraft Artillery) were also good. Hamburg was interesting. Those jets were so fast. We couldn’t get away. Home base told us to get down close to the ocean, that the jets wouldn’t attack us there. We did. . . and they did not pursue us.” Asked if he was a frightened young 18 year old kid, Best said, “well, not on the ground. Once we took off we became aware that we might meet enemy fire, either by fighters or ground fire. Then

The Lancaster Bomber

you got a bit nervous. We were attacked often enought that we definitely knew we were in a war. Typical bomber flights were 5 to 6 hours; Leipzig was in the SE portion of Europe, a 9.5 hour trip to get there and back. A lot of flying.

invitations to dinner from her, after I declined.

We were in the Bomber Command, all Canadian, very proud of our record. Had some Australians not too far from us.

Their searchlights would hit you with the beam and that would mark you electronically . . . and AAA fire soon followed.

We’d waggle wings and salute each other when returning to base. If we had to land at their base, they treated us royally.

One crew member was an albino with white hair, white eyelashes and eyebrows. We nicknamed him “Dad.” Very popular, a great sense of humor. I will never forget the night we had landed and “Dad” did not return. Dad had been shot down and, as far as we know, there were no survivors from that plane. Very emotional. I knew his mother and she was at the troop train the night we left from Edmonton. My mother was there, his mother came up and hugged me and said, “Would you sorta look over Morely Brewer (Dad’s real name). He looks up to you.”

When we found out Morley was gone, she requested I pick up his belongings and return to her, which I did; that was not an easy thing. . . a lot of emotion.

My aunt was a Jehovah’s Witness. The government outlawed JW because they openly opposed the war. Aunt asked me to take some literature and distribute it. “Aunt Maude, I can’t do that. I’d be court martialed.” No more

Library users often work on multiple electronic devices at the same time. It’s not unusual for someone to use a phone, laptop and a database on a library computer all at once.

All of the proposed projects are subject to the City Council’s approval of the overall capital improvement budget, which is scheduled to be considered after a public hearing June 11 at City Hall.

No crew members were lost; we got hit by flak and were attacked by German fighters on several occasions. But we had no fatalities of crew.

Bad weather caused us problems from time to time getting back to our home base; on a number of times we had to land at another base, sometimes at an American squadron. We learned how well the Americans ate, peaches and cream. We had a good relationship with the 8th Air Force.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 5 City officials say the demand and usage of computers has exploded and the library is hard pressed, with its present configuration, to keep pace with the demand.

Doug Best Today . . .

“The War ended while I was in England. I was sent home to become a civilian. I have no regrets about my RCAF service; I’m glad to have survived.”

Doug and Lorene Best Today

After the war years, Doug would move to San Diego. He went to work for Walker Scott and met a young lady named Lorene Wilson who also worked there.

Lorene married Doug and they’ve now been married for 66 years.

They live in Escondido and are in regular contact with their children and grandchildren.

Doug’s brother Bruce is still with us, almost 90 years of age, but is in poor health. He lives in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Editor’s Note: I’ve worked with Doug Best since 1970 when we were both with KOWN for 3-4 years. He started in San Diego at KSDO and, later, with KFMB.

An overview of the capital improvement budget and the operations budget will be presented at a public workshop scheduled for 6 p.m. May 30 at the city’s Faraday Administration Building, 1635 Faraday Ave, Carlsbad. In all, the city has proposed $43.9 million in capital improvements for the upcoming fiscal year. Along with the library upgrades, projects include street improvements, parking and street signs, safety lighting, $8.3 million in park construction, a new fire station to be built for $9.4 million, and the continuation of a fiveyear, $29.4 million expansion of the recycled water system.

The city has outlined about 240 projects costing almost $500 million in its capital improvement program for the next 15 years.
