News for the City of Good
Neighbors from an Old Guy
Named Norb Huber
With the recent school shootings and
all the political back and forth about
what can be done to prevent this sort
of thing from happening in the future,
I would like to remind us of the way we used
to be in this great country. There used to be
some “behavioral norms” or what some people
would say, “American values” that were almost
universally endorsed between the end of World
War II and the mid-1960’s. I came across this
list of values that some of us are old enough
to remember: Get married before you have
children and strive to stay married for their
sake. Get the education you need for gainful
employment, work hard, and avoid idleness.
Go the extra mile for your employer or client.
Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be
neighborly, civic-minded, and charitable. Avoid
coarse language in public. Be respectful of
authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.
Wow! How much have we swayed from
these in recent decades? We follow the lead
of Hollywood and live searching for happiness
and pleasure. Most of these “old-time” values
have their roots in the bible. Read Proverbs
or review the Ten Commandments and you
will see that honoring our mother and father
means to show respect for authority, loving
others means to be charitable and civic minded.
Can we revert our entire country back to these
truths? No. Can we take sin and evil out of
everyone’s heart? No. But by the grace of
God, as individuals, we can return to the values
that make for a more peaceful life. America’s
pastor, the Rev. Billy Graham was called to be
with our Lord and Savior yesterday. He had a
simple message for all: repent and believe in
Jesus. No matter what the horrible news is
tomorrow in our country, we can be assured
that God will never leave us or forsake us and
by living in his grace we can have that “peace
that surpasses all understanding”.

SPECIAL GUEST DAY
Want to get involved with your community
and help make Hawthorne a better place to live
and work? The Kiwanis Club of Hawthorne
is having a Special Guest Day luncheon on
Friday, March 2nd starting at 12 noon at
the Hawthorne Memorial Center. I am an
honorary member of this club and I can say
that membership is full of fun, service and great
comradery with others who share my passion
for making Hawthorne better. Interested in
attending? Contact Don Harris at 310-293-6580
or firstname.lastname@example.org. The special
luncheon is an invitation to potential members
who may wish to join the club.
Mark your calendars. Tell your cell phone
to send you a reminder. Make a point to get
out of bed early and come on over to the
Hawthorne Museum on St. Patrick’s Day
morning, Saturday, March 17 between the
hours of 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. The Hawthorne
Historical Society will be holding our 4th
Annual Hawthorne Hometown Pancake
Breakfast. How much better can it get than
hot cakes, bacon, sausage, orange juice and
coffee? Bring your friends and family. The
price is right, $5 is all that you pay.
THE “STATE OF THE
Mayor Alex Vargas promises to keep his
speech shorter than President Trump when
he delivers his annual “State of the City”
address on Wednesday, March 21st over at the
Memorial Center. Tickets to the luncheon are
$50 per person and can be obtained by calling
the Chamber of Commerce office.
