Short Stories of San Diego County and Other Musings
by Regis Rosner
I moved to San Diego County with my family at the age of ten in 1945. We found it rich in history. It was first settled by the Native Kumeyaay Indians, and then along came the explorers from Europe and the Padres of the Church.
This area has always been an exciting place for a ten-year-old to grow up, with the wonderful gift of freedom to live and mingle with such a diversity of people. We had one High School in East County, Grossmont High, with a winning football team and the wonderful angelic sound of our world-famous Red Robe Choir.
There were plenty of mysterious and fascinating Indians still around. I have many fond and exciting memories of San Diego County that I wished to write about and share with readers and close friends, many of whom are the proud Kumeyaay. Be sure to read about "Wampum."
About the Author
I was born in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania in 1934. In 1940 I was elated to discover we had to move out west to Pacific Beach. I was so excited to know we would be close to the Lone Ranger, Tonto, and even Gene Autry on the West Coast. In 1945 by doctor orders we had to move away from Pacific Beach area to a warmer and healthier climate for my sister. We decided to move to El Cajon.
I attended Bostonia and El Cajon Elementary Grammar School and then Grossmont High School. I graduated from San Diego Vocational School as a Journeyman Plumber.
My wife and I were married at St. Mary's Catholic Church in El Cajon in 1952. We were blessed with five children, thirteen grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
