Lions, Tigers & Bears Sudden Loss of Tiger Cub Major Blow to Sanctuary ALPINE — Bobbi Brink, Founder/Director of San Diego’s non-profit accredited sanctuary, Lions Tigers & Bears (LTB) announced the sudden passing of the sanctuary’s six month old tiger cub named Himmel. “It is with a heavy heart and incredible sadness that we must share with you the news that Himmel, the young six month old tiger cub, has tragically passed away” states Brink. Himmel arrived at LTB on Sept. 5, 2015, malnourished, declawed, and suffering from an umbilical hernia. Brink states “We had concerns that he had other underlying issues, but through attentive care, proper nutrition and an enriching diet, Himmel appeared to be morphing from a frail cub into a young tiger with a playful personality and a full life ahead of him. As happy as he was, we knew he still had a hard road ahead of him, with his nutritional issues and pain everyday from cruelly being declawed,” said Brink. The young cub underwent a routine veterinary procedure late last week to be neutered and repair his hernia. He was also scheduled for reparative surgery on his declawed paws in February. The sanctuary’s medical team, led by lead veterinarian, Dr. Jane Meier, who has over 40 years of experience, performed the procedure and used the opportunity to give the tiger his required vaccinations while under anesthesia. Dr. Meier states, “The surgery went well and was uneventful. As Himmel was transitioning into surgical recovery, he suffered profound respiratory failure and collapse. Despite the best resuscitation efforts of our veteri-

nary team and animal care staff, Himmel did not recover.” With regard to the cause of death “The most likely cause of the problem was a severe allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, which occurred in response to one of the injections Himmel was given at the end of his surgery. This is the most serious type of allergic reaction and is often fatal. It is the same kind of reaction caused by peanut allergies in people and can happen so quickly and severely that even aggressive treatment is ineffective,” Meier said. Brink states “With any decision to perform medical procedures, the risks and benefits must always be weighed. Along with our medical team, we make our decisions based on careful planning and the information we have at the time, always putting the animal’s health and well-being first and foremost. The sudden loss of Himmel is a stark reminder of how even after

thoughtful and thorough consideration of the benefits and hazards, you can never completely eliminate the risks of a medical procedure. Himmel’s passing is not only a blow to our sanctuary team, but one of the tragic consequences that stem from the indiscriminate captive breeding of exotic animals. With no family history to reference, it is hard to pinpoint an animal like Himmel’s underlying issues.” Himmel was found roaming the streets of Hemet, California in early September 2015. He was anonymously turned into an animal shelter, when California Department of Fish & Wildlife stepped in and asked LTB to provide refuge to the three month old tiger cub. Himmel’s name was inspired by the late Larry Himmel, local CBS 8 San Diego newscaster and longtime supporter of our sanctuary, after the name won the most votes on an online naming contest in October. Sanctuary staff described the tiger as “playful, goofy, awkward and sweet “ “Life sometimes is unexplainable and seemingly unfair. With any death, we are always left with so many questions, but in a life cut so short, we often can find no answers that comfort us. They say God never gives us more then we can handle and when he takes something He always gives back more. Himmel’s passing will continue to fuel our passion to stop the abuse that is the exotic animal trade – so no more cubs are forced to endure the perils that stem from this heinous trade. Himmel may not have been with us for long, but he left boundless paw prints on our hearts that will last forever,” added Brink.

One PUC Embarrassment Gone, But Probes Continue

H

Your Senator In The News Senator Joel Anderson LOCAL HONORED DURING SANTE HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH, cont’d from p.2 trained and certified to train you to find what those roadblocks are and why they are blocking you. Then we clear those away so you can get to that next step and get to where you want to go.” Budke received a Senate Certificate of Recognition from Senator Joel Anderson for her outstanding service and participation in Santee Health Awareness Month.

ere’s the bottom line on the significant but under-publicized retirement of Melanie M. Darling, the California Public Utilities Commission judge who fined a huge utility $16 million late last year for not reporting secret contacts with PUC officials including herself: The PUC is rid of a major embarrassment, but is still under criminal investigation. Why? Because private phone calls and emails between some of its top officials and executives of Pacific Gas & Electric Co. and Southern California Edison Co. may have fixed the outcome of billion-dollar cases. It’s not yet known whether the commission has had secret dealings with Sempra Energy, owner of the other two large private utilities it regulates, Southern California Gas Co. and San Diego Gas & Electric Co. Darling, 63, had multiple phone calls and emails with Edison executives, both reported and not, helping make a laughing stock of the state’s most powerful regulatory board. None of it was intended as comedy. Darling’s last major assignment was presiding over hearings that saw the PUC force consumers to pay 70 percent of about $4.7 billion in costs associated with the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, 80 percent owned by Edison. SONGS shut down in 2012 following a major blunder by the company. Neither Edison nor the PUC has ever presented a reason why customers should pay any of those costs, but they are nevertheless stuck to the eventual tune of about $2,300 for every electric meter in the territories of Edison and SDG&E, which owns 20 percent of SONGS. That decision, it turned out, was first outlined during a secret 2013 meeting in a Polish hotel between an Edison executive and former PUC President Michael Peevey. Darling’s real, unannounced task, then, was arranging the details. Emails between her and Edison executive Russell Worden reveal she began favoring Edison and SDG&E months before the Warsaw meeting. PUC judges like Darling hold hearings and recommend decisions, but only the actual commission can finalize outcomes. In this case, she and Worden agreed to split hearings on SONGS into three phases, with the first to set the amount consumers would pay and the last determining fault for the plant failure. That’s the reverse of normal, sensible procedure, where blame is assessed before costs are distributed. One email reveals Darling already knew about the Edison blunder when she set up her process; a later one shows she actually asked Edison whether it thought the proceeding should be reopened after it ended. Naturally, the utility said no and that was that. So she was a major embarrassment to the commission, which insists she planned for a “long” time to retire on Dec. 25. PUC spokesmen did not answer questions about when Darling gave notice of her rather early “retirement.” She may have been dumped quickly after this column in early December noted the absurdity of her fining Edison for not reporting to the commission contacts with her and others at the commission. It’s all part of a longtime PUC climate favoring utilities over their customers. This pattern was obvious for many years, but the extent of relations between the commission and executives of the utilities whose rates and profits it sets was not clear until late 2014. A lawsuit then forced release of 65,000 previously secret and possibly illegal emails between commissioners, staff and PG&E. Further disclosures revealed private contacts with executives of other utilities. Just as astonishing is the way Gov. Brown and other state officials continue treating the under-investigation PUC as if it’s trustworthy. Example: When Brown belatedly declared a state of emergency over the ongoing natural gas leak at a SoCal Gas storage facility in Aliso Canyon, about a mile from the Porter Ranch section of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, he assigned investigative functions to the PUC, saying it will “ensure that (SoCal Gas) covers costs…while protecting ratepayers.” Absolutely no recognition there of the commission’s enduring disregard for the wallets of ratepayers, aka customers. So yes, the PUC needs big change, and a wholesale housecleaning may come if indictments ever emerge from state and federal investigations. Getting rid of one embarrassing second-level official like Darling won’t solve the problem, either for the PUC or the consumers it is supposed to protect – but usually doesn’t.

. What is the value of taking hormones for menopause? . To help control menopause symptoms,

there is Hormone Therapy (HT) or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). The most comprehensive evidence about taking hormones after menopause comes from the Women’s Health Initiative Hormone Program sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the National Cancer Institute. The WHI Hormone Program involved two studies—the use of estrogen plus progestin (a synthetic progesterone), and the use of estrogen alone. Women who have undergone a hysterectomy are generally given estrogen alone. Women who have not undergone this surgery are given estrogen plus progestin, which have a lower risk of causing cancer of the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. The estrogen/progestin study was stopped in 2002, when investigators reported that the overall risks outweighed the benefits. The estrogen-alone study was stopped in 2004, when the researchers concluded that estrogen alone increased the risk of stroke and blood clots. I have read comments from doctors who say that HRT may be okay for some women. The best course is to get a personal assessment from your own physician.

. Any advice about how to stay healthy during a trip abroad? . Here are a few tips:

Full Service Salon First, see your doctor and your dentist

to make sure you are starting the voyage in good condition. You may need vacci-

nations. * Guard against infection by washing your hands often, especially after you’ve been on a plane, train or bus. * If you are in a country where traveler’s diarrhea is common, avoid street vendors, uncooked food, unpasteurized dairy products, tap water and ice. * To battle jet lag, drink a lot of water on your flight. * Get up and walk on a plane or train to protect yourself against blood clots forming in your legs. * If you suffer from motion sickness, make sure your eyes are seeing the same motion that your body senses. For example, on a rocking boat, go up on deck and watch the horizon. Don’t sit in a windowless room below deck where your body feels movement, but your eyes don’t see it. That difference is what makes you seasick.

. What exactly happens during LASIK eye surgery.

. LASIK, which stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, improves vision by reshaping the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye. Using a laser, an eye surgeon can free patients of eyeglasses and contact lenses. During the eye exam prior to LASIK, the surgeon charts your eye to determine which areas of your cornea need to be altered. The surgery is then done with a laser programmed to remove the right amount of tissue in each location on the cornea. During the surgery, you lie on your back in a reclining chair in an exam room. The surgery usually takes less than a half-hour. Often, LASIK is done on both eyes in the same sitting. In most cases, your vision won’t be better at first. Vision improves over several months.

Fresh Hope for Those Who Suffer from Multiple Sclerosis

A

new treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has enabled some patients to walk again by “rebooting” their immune systems. As part of a clinical trial at Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital involving around 20 patients, scientists used stem cells to carry out a bone marrow transplant. The method known as an autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) works by using chemotherapy to destroy the area of the immune system which causes MS. The trial has been documented as part of a BBC Panorama program. The trial has been so effective for some patients that they have been able to walk once more. Professor John Snowden, consultant haematologist at Royal Hallamshire Hospital, said that the patient’s immune systems were “reset or rebooted “back to a time point before it caused MS. “It’s clear we have made a big impact on patients’ lives, which is gratifying.” Professor Basil Sharrack of the Royal Hallamshire

described the treatment as a “major achievement”. MS affects the central nervous system, and is generally diagnosed when a person is in their 20s or 30s. More than 100,000 people in the UK and more than 250,000 in U.S., approximately 2.5 million worldwide are currently living with the incurable neurological disease. Amy Bowen, Director of Service Development at the MS Trust said that the treatment is “very powerful” but said it has “significant risks as well as potential benefits”. “It’s a long way from being a routine treatment for MS,” said. “We still need more clinical trials to understand who is most likely to benefit from treatment, to develop safer treatment procedures and understand what the long-term effects of treatment might be.” Dr Emma Gray, head of clinical trials at UK’s MS Society said: “Ongoing research suggests stem cell treatments such as HSCT could offer hope, and it’s clear that, in the cases highlighted by Panorama, they’ve had a life-changing impact. “However, trials have found that, while HSCT may be able to stabilise or improve disability in some people with MS, it may not be effective for all types of the condition. “We want people to be aware that HSCT is an aggressive

treatment that comes with significant risks. It needs to be carried out at an accredited centre or as part of a clinical trial. “The MS Society has recently funded a study looking into the impact of HSCT on the immune system and we’d like to see larger trials in this area. They would help us learn more about the safety and long term effectiveness of the treatment and who could benefit from it.” Specialists warn that patients need to be fit to benefit from the new treatment.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY with PastorLIFE Drew

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah

G

reetings precious people. As we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah,” this week we will continue to look at the events that occurred one day in the life of Jesus as recorded for us in Mark 10:46 “ Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.” And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus. So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.” This is one of my favorite passages in the Bible because it represents the affects of tenacious prayer. There were many deterrents to this man coming to Jesus, he was blind; there was a great multitude of people meaning that he could not get near to Jesus and because of the many people it was unlikely that Jesus could hear his cry for help; many (not a few) told him to be quiet and not ask Jesus for help. With all these things that could cause him to be discouraged and quit asking for help from Jesus, (I love this) he cried out even more. Two things I want you to see in this, first, somewhere, somehow, this man had heard about Jesus from someone. Whenever that was, it instilled a measure of faith in this man that if he made his request known to Jesus, He would hear him and grant him what it was that he asked. Second, because of this faith all that which came against him to discourage him from seeking and asking Jesus for mercy did not deter him, he believed that Jesus was the answer to his problem so in spite of discouragements, he persisted and cried out the more. This brings great encouragement to me for there have been (and will be in the future) circumstances and people that have discouraged me to continue to seek the Lord for His mercy and grace, circumstances that seem impossible to overcome or change; feelings of condemnation that attempt to convince that I have no right in asking God for mercy and grace. Finally, the most important point we need to recognize is that Jesus heard this man and answered his prayer. Granted, there are times when we pray and it seems like God does not hear, this happened in Bartimaeus’ situation (though only for a short time). Jesus did not respond right away. So too in our life, we may pray about something for some time and it seems that God is not listening but He hears everything. Jesus told a number of parables about the need for us to be persistent in prayer; Bartimaeus serves as another example of this.

EL CAJON — California State Senator Joel Anderson recognized the K9 Guardians team with Senate Certificates of Recognition for their unyielding commitment to assisting Veterans and for their exceptional dedication to leadership in our community through providing trained service dogs to Veterans. K9 Guardians is a non-profit organization whose mission is “to raise and train German Shepherds as service dogs for the purpose of providing them to Veterans of foreign or domestic wars; that suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other service related disabilities.” K9 Guardians is run by Leisa Tilley-Grajek, President, and Jeff Harrington, Vice President and dedicated volunteers like Chuck Daniels who connected Anderson with the organization and attended the presentation. Veteran Richard Caldwell and his service dog Nicholas were at the presentation. Caldwell received Nicolas from K9 Guardians. Caldwell and “Nico” are still in training. Nicholas assists Caldwell mobility, and PTSD. Nicolas helps him get out of bed, out of chairs, helps with navigating stairs, water out of the cabinet and being there Caldwell just needs a friend. Leisa Tilley-Grajek is training Malachi for a retired navy seal with broken back and traumatic brain injury. She is working his right side because that’s the seals weak side. Malachi being trained to wake up his seal when having nightmares by licking his cheek or laying on his chest. Malachi is also being trained to take off socks. Tilley-Grajek grew up with 2 German shepherds, and comes from a military family. She knows firsthand what PTSD can do. One of main motivations for starting K9 Guardians was that 22 veterans commit suicide every day. Her goal to prevent the suicides. So far she has prevented 4. Because veterans put their lives on the line, she reaches out to veterans. K9 Guardians need people for puppy raisers, financial contributions, volunteers. Puppy training lasts 18 months. When asked how hard is it to give up the dog, she stated that realizing the benefits to the person that dog go to, there is another puppy that will need training, makes it easier to let it go. Anderson said, “K9 Guardians maintained an unwavering commitment to assisting Veterans.” He continued, “I am grateful to meet the K9 Guardians team and service dogs Nico and Malachi today and honor all the hard work Leisa and her team do for our service members.” K9 Guardians rely on volunteers who among other tasks help with puppy raising.

SANTEE — The Santee Chamber of Commerce’s threw a Membership Appreciation Party! at the Mission Realty Group office. This is the first after 5 mixer of the year. The party was for those who support the Chamber by being involved as members and welcoming those who are interested in membership. Incoming Chairman Virginia Hall and CEO Sandy Schmidt brought back a tradition where members and non-members would go around the room and introduced themselves. Each individual stated their name and a bit of information about themselves. This makes networking easier knowing who is in the room. Kudos Virginia and Sandy.
