Kristie Hawthorne of the Oceanside Historical Society gave us an interesting overview of the four airfields that have existed in Oceanside. A side of Oceanside that is little known. Ranging from a location next to the ocean that was used to catapult gliders off the bluffs using a large elastic cord and 24 people to the site that was adjacent to Oceanside Boulevard.

North County Times columnist Agnes Herman was guest speaker Wednesday, October 3, at Oceanside’s San Luis Rey Rotary Club. The 90-year-old Herman spoke on her writing career, the trials and prejudices of being a young Jewish writer in the 1930s, before World War II, and the joy she gets out of writing to and for senior citizens.
