Three-year-old Harris Faulkner with her mother in Ludwigsburg, Germany. She says she loved the view from the flight control elevator of her father’s airplane.

remember when...

Rules of Engagement� by Harris Faulkner brings to the forefront the lessons she learned growing up in a military family, which can be applied today. She pays homage to the military ideals that shaped her, showing how everyone can benefit from their wisdom. Her father, a decorated career officer, a lieutenant colonel, served three tours of duty in Vietnam and raised his children with the values and ideals of the U.S. military. The nine rules include “Trusting your own potential, Overcoming the odds, Recruiting our own Special Forces, Dealing with your demons, Staying ready, Wearing camouflage and Unleashing the power of integrity.� The Emmy award-winning news anchor of “Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner� and cohost of the talk show “Outnumbered� on Fox News Channel uses the skills she emphasizes in the chapter “Staying Ready.� Anyone who has ever watched these shows quickly realizes that she asks the formative questions, never allowing a guest to spin false narratives. “I try not to have people talk past each other and to do the one thing we all need to do, listen,� Faulkner said. “As a host, I try to give people an opportunity to speak. Yet, I watch to see if they try to filibuster, a sign to me that they are losing the argument. I enjoy hearing all sides of a con-



versation and think that viewers can also learn from it. I want to do the work of the viewer so that they don’t have to figure out what the truth actually is. I ask questions to illuminate where people are coming from and to get to the truth. It is less about who is right and more of what is right.� The chapter “Recruiting Your Special Forces� shows the importance of being surrounded by supporters. “I married my best friend,� she said. “Today, people are dividing, firing, separating based on politics. Instead, we should ‘fire’ someone if they do not show support for your dreams and victories. In your personal life as you strive for your goals the inner circle must be tight and we should never tolerate someone who does not have our back.� In speaking with Faulkner, it became obvious that she values integrity in a person. “The military integrity and credo gives us that clutch,� Faulkner said. “I understand how difficult some things can be. But those serving know when things fall apart military brats show their resilience. For a little background, in the book, I refer to it as an enduring term standing for Born Raised And Transferred. I think it is the military saying thank you to us kids for having grit too. “When one member of a family joins the military, the whole family bears the weight of the service. We sacrifice time with that GROWING UP, continued on Page 7

Hoffman enters MLB Hall of Fame COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Hometown hero Trevor Hoffman was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday. Joining former Padres “Hoffy� in the Hall of Fame class of 2018 was Chipper Jones who didn’t bow to the pressure of the moment, and it was considerable.

here’s something relaxing and almost mystical about boats bobbing on the water with the sounds of docks creaking and halyards clanging. The Kona Kai Resort & Spa and its marina, on San Diego’s secluded Shelter Island, provides safe harbor for a couple’s or family getaway.


In 1953, C. Arnholt Smith built a marina on a dredged sandbank that eventually became known as Shelter Island. Later, the exclusive Kona Kai Club opened — members included most of San Diego’s movers and shakers. It was also a place for celebrities to dock and visit. Just a few who sailed in were Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, Jack Lemmon, Gregory Peck, Jimmy Durante, Dick Van Dyke and Liberace. Long-time San Diegans will also remember C. Arnholt Smith as the first owner of the Padres and the largest bank in town. Eventually, the FDIC, IRS and Department of Justice caught up with him. Smith was indicted, convicted and jailed for embezzlement and bank fraud.

Kona Kai Resort & Spa on Shelter Island is a perfect getaway for couples and families alike.

ACRAMENTO — For 1st Lt. Leslie R. Greenfield, crossing the finish line is something that has literally been a huge part of her life. As an avid runner who has successfully completed 10 marathons including the Boston, she knows what it is like to train hard and to remain focused in order to complete a race. On July 20, however, Greenfield crossed a different finish line: She became the first woman in the California Army National Guard to graduate from Infantry Basic Of-

ficer Leadership Course (IBOLC). “This is very exciting for me and I am so happy to have had the opportunity just to attend IBOLC,� said Greenfield during a recent telephone interview from Fort Benning, Georgia, the home of IBOLC. “There were days, I have to admit, that I questioned myself, but I kept moving forward to reach my goal to graduate.� Only 38 women have graduated from the course since the Army opened all combat arms related occupations to women a few years ago. Greenfield was one of six females from class 04-18’s 141 graduates to earn their blue cord. She knew that she would encounter some adversity from those who do not necessarily believe women belong in the infantry. “Some men believe you should not be here,� she explained. “You know you have to work to earn their respect more than just a guy coming in right off the street.�

Two men are by a hole in the ground and they both wonder how deep it is. So, they pick up a rock and throw it in. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear anything so they pick up an old transmission and throw it in. They listen... and still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear anything. Then they see a goat running at them full speed and it jumps into the hole. Shortly after, a farmer comes along and asks them, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you seen my goat?â&#x20AC;?

An American visits India and meets an old man in the town square who is renowned for his elephantine memory. He asks the old man what he had for breakfast on the same day 15 years back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eggs,â&#x20AC;? replies the old man. The American scoffs at this, saying everyone has eggs for breakfast and walks away. Ten years later he returns to India and sees the same old man on the same spot, goes to him and asks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How?â&#x20AC;? The old man takes one look at his face and replies, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scrambled.â&#x20AC;?
