Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former students greeting him and saying, "Mr. Dungan, you told the dumbestjokes and stories!" Howard would ask which one; the former student would repeat it and the context, and then he would reply, "Ah, but you remembered!"Howard and Anita loved to play golf at the Tijuana Country Club and Balboa Park Golf Course, were once active in the Methodist Church in La Mesa, and had a custom home built in Spring Valley where they resided until they passed. They vacationed in Mexico City, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada with a succession of travel trailers. These trips were later accompanied by their only child, Michelle Dungan, now a retired California Department of Transportation Associate Environmental Planner. After Anita passed in 2006,Howard eventually resumed travel in a Roadtrek motorhome, completing the last trip to Kearney, Nebraska by himself at age 97, where he was interviewed by the newspaper. Howard flew with Honor Flight to Washington D.C. and spoke to a 5th grade class in Carlsbad that had written letters to the veterans to read on the flight, befriended the teacher, and later attended the middle school graduation for the students. This was the subject of a local news story. Another story was about his flight on a B-25, his first since World War II. On a trip to Hawaii with aniece, he honored a relative killed on the U.S.S. Arizona at Pearl Harbor, his first visit there after the war.Howard worked hard to live as independently as he could, frequented the zoo, read extensively, and watched televised sports until COVID-19 forced him to replace them with old television westerns and more classic movies. A rerun of the original "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" which featured B-25s like he flew was rarely missed, along with "Catch-22", which he said captured some of the absurdities of the war. He still drove well, shopped, and balanced his checkbookuntil a few weeks before he passed.Howard is survived by his daughter, Michelle Dungan and her wife, Veronica Zerrer; numerous nieces and nephews; friends and former students whose lives he touched; and the family dog, Jacqui, who recently saved him from a bad fall by warning Veronica that he had a leg cramp and was trapped on the steep slope next to a vertical em...

Plant of the Month: ‘Mahogany Splendor’ hibiscus - West Hawaii Today
This red-leafed hibiscus is a fast growing perennial shrub here in Hawaii. It can grow to nearly 6 feet and 3 feet wide in a single season under ideal conditions. The deeply lobed mahogany leaves can be almost 4 inches across, have serrated edges and are similar in appearance to those of the Japanese maple. The flowers are usually a very deep red though some species produce a pink flower with red veins.
The flowers only last a single day, usually opening early in the morning and closing by noon. The blooms open toward the end of a branch opening successively leaving behind a deep red pointed calyx. The sturdy branches with red their leaves, flowers and series of dried calyx are often used to add interest and color to floral arrangements.
Though Hibiscus acetosella can be grown in groups as a hedging plant, it can also serve singly as a specimen plant adding color and texture to your garden. Though it is neither wind nor salt tolerant, it is a vigorous, drought and heat-tolerant plant that also grows well in containers.
It grows best in full sun. In shady locations, it will grow well but the foliage will likely lose the red brilliance that full sun encourages. This hibiscus likes a moist, slightly acid soil of between pH 5.8 and 6.5. .
Propagating “Mahogany Splendor” is fairly simple. It can be done from cuttings or seeds. To start from seeds, collect them from the dried calyx that appears on the stem following (and below) the flowers. The seeds should shake out easily. To hasten germination you can soak the seeds overnight in warm water then nick them with a razor blade before sowing.
Sow the seeds in small pots or seedling trays using a potting mix that drains well. Cover the seed lightly and keep the medium moist, but not wet. Viable seeds should germinate within two weeks.
Once the seedlings have several sets of true leaves, the young plants can be moved to larger pots or to a protected place in the garden and get light fertilization. Introduce them to full sun gradually over several days before planting out.
For vegetative propagation, take cuttings from branch ends 4 to 6 inches long. Dip them in a rooting compound and then place them in a medium that drains well. A 50/50 mix of perlite and vermiculite works well. Once they start putting out new leaves you can treat them like seedlings.
With adequate water and a location in full sun, “Mahogany Splendor” needs almost no care to keep it happy. You can prune to control size and shape and to preserve its bushy growth habit. Keeping this hibiscus fairly compact will encourage flowering and help maintain its attractive appearance. Regular fertilization is also recommended. Applying a balanced fertilizer three or four times a year should be adequate.
Though it may be occasionally attacked by insects like Chinese rose beetle or white fly, lox tox remedies are usually adequate to control them. Overall, keeping your plant healthy will discourage insect or disease attacks.
Red-leaved hibiscus plants can be found at some local nurseries or requested through Margo Lundstrom (formerly of Sunrise Nursery) at 640-9191. If you know someone who...
