SANTEE — The Santee Sheriff ’s Station held a Coffee with the Community at the Santee Library, Wednesday, Feb. 3. “ Community outreach is a top priority of the San Diego County Sheriff ’s Department. Members of the community should feel comfortable bringing problems related to safety and security to our staff,” said Captain James Bovet who led the event. Topics included homeless around the riverbed and asso-

ciated crime, traffic congestion, unwanted solicitors, and prescription drug drop points. For the homeless, the Sheriff started homeless outreach program to aid homeless people with services they need. On any given day, there are two-three deputies dedicated to traffic and four-five deputies on patrol if needed to deal with traffic problems. Each month the strategy changes for handling problems. The Sheriffs also busted

an illegal medical marijuana outlet in Santee. In addition, they stated that heroin is the drug of choice because it’s inexpensive. Since heroin addicts can’t work, they try to make quick money by breaking into residents during the daylight hours because no one is usually home. You can better protect you home by having the Sheriff ’s give your home a safety inspection. They can also talk about neighborhood watch programs.

Realigning to Health Awareness With Dr. Sarah By Megan Ruckstuhl

For The East County Herald SANTEE — Barker Chiropractic has served Santee since 1981 and is committed to giving back to the community it has called home for over three decades. Barker Chiropractic began under Dr. David Barker and is now headed by Dr. Sarah VanValkenburg, his former mentee, who is continuing his legacy of promoting healthy living. VanValkenburg has expanded the practice to also include pediatric chiropractic medicine. She states, “I chose pediatrics for a couple reasons: 1. The infertility aspect, if there was an inability to conceive a baby, I also want to understand the baby that is coming into this world so that they can live a healthy life. 2. I am deaf in my right ear as a result of ear infections as a child so I want to prevent other kids from going down the same path… I just want to help people. It’s really easy to prevent a disease rather than treat a disease.” VanValkenburg has made community service a pillar of her practice. She can be seen giving high school presentations on how to live a healthy lifestyle, which include eating right, exercise, healthy living, and how to include chiropractic care. She also participated in Santee Health Awareness Month in January, organized by California Health Network (CHN), and offered free first visits that

Appearance of Improprieties Within Alpine Union School District ALPINE — Several employees at the Alpine Union School District (AUSD) are facing dire consequences as the result of a conflict of interest caused by one of its trustees. One employee will be demoted and another may lose their job. The problem results from the election of AUSD Board Trustee Joe Perricone, who took office after winning the 2012 election. Leslie Perricone, the trustee’s wife, is an employee of the district, and was promoted to a higher position in the Human Resources Department. Board policy and State Education Code prohibit employees who are the spouses of elected members from promotion within one year of the election, on the mere appearance of impropriety and conflict of interest. Ms. Perricone was promoted from site secretary to human resource specialist two months prior to the election. The promotion violated Education Code 1091.5 and AUSD Board Policy 9270. Once this issue came to the attention of the board members, they asked the district’s attorney, Anthony P. Demarco (Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo) to investigate. The law firm advised Ms. Perricone be immediately demoted from her position. Upon this recommendation, AUSD placed her on paid administrative leave. Since that time, Ms. Perricone was brought back to work as a floater in various places throughout the district, and it has now been revealed that she will resume her previous position as site secretary. The board held a procedural vote in January to eliminate a site secretary position in order to demote the current employee in that position and to provide reinstatement for Ms. Perricone. Board member Mr. Perricone recused himself from the vote. The current employee holding that position will be demoted back to her previous position, and the person occupying the last position in the employment chain faces termination. Compounding matters, Ms. Perricone’s previous position as human resource specialist in the district made her privy to information that could have benefitted Mr. Perricone during his election campaign. There is no evidence to substantiate any legal wrongdoing on the part of the Perricones, however, the conflict of interest laws are based upon appearance of impropriety as much as an actual act. They are designed to protect taxpayers. Due to the improper promotion of Ms. Perricone, the district also has the legal obligation to seek compensation from the Perricones for the increased wages wrongfully afforded her. At the current time, AUSD looks to seek disgorgement of the Perricones, indicating they owe the district and the taxpayers of Alpine between $20,000-$40,000 in disallowed pay increases and legal fees. Mr. Perricone hired an attorney to argue the merits of the conflict of interest case. His decision to use a lawyer resulted in additional legal expenses to AUSD and appropriated monies away from the classrooms. Board member Perricone had two option presented to him by AUSD’s attorney to remove his conflict of interest; resign or allow his wife to be demoted to her previous position. Mr. Perricone refused to resign and continues to vote as a board member in good standing, allowing two employees to be financially impacted. AUSD Superintendent Bruce E. Cochrane was contacted for comment regarding the above matter, but did not respond to The Herald’s call. As of Jan. 29, Superintendent Cochrane has given notice that he will be leaving his current position with AUSD. Whether the two are related is unknown at the current time.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Don’t Discount a Fifth Feinstein Reelection

T

he polls don’t look super-strong for Dianne Feinstein today. True, she has a very good approval rating in the latest surveys, the Field Poll showing 44 percent of California voters think she’s doing a good job and only 29 percent disapproving of her work. But the same surveys indicate that even though a generation or two has come of age since she won her U.S. Senate seat in 1992, fully 43 percent of likely voters think it would not be a good thing for her to seek reelection to a fifth full term in 2018, when the former San Francisco mayor will be 84 years old. So just as many people want her to retire as think she’s doing well right now. Simply put, that’s age discrimination. But Democrat Feinstein also faces the same problem that perennially afflicts all senators from California, one that’s caused plenty to lose their seats: This state is so big that even with six years of congressional recesses to use, no one can possibly become familiar to the great majority of voters without running a large advertising campaign. Yet, no senator can afford that until it’s time for a reelection campaign to start. As Feinstein’s longtime Democratic colleague, the soon-to-retire Barbara Boxer, said in an interview as her 2010 campaign began, “You have to reintroduce yourself to the voters every six years. A lot of them just don’t know you.” That’s political reality in this huge state, where the average person moves once every seven years and senators spend most of their time about 3,000 miles away. So it’s easy for people who see Feinstein’s age and not her energy to opine that she shouldn’t run. Certainly, there’s a large cadre of her fellow Democrats who feel that way: Many of them would dearly love to take her job. But Feinstein has hung onto that job by doing it well, acting as a moderate with friends and allies in both parties even while the Senate sees more partisan bitterness and bickering than it has in more than a century. Emblematic was how she handled a raucous public hearing about land use in the California desert held last fall in a large tent about five miles off the Interstate 10 freeway near Palm Springs. Feinstein has pushed for about seven years to create three national monuments in large portions of the Mojave Desert lying between Barstow, Needles and Twentynine Palms. The crowd of 800 under the tent in 100-degree-plus temperatures wildly favored her plan, which has been stymied by Republicans in Congress, while President Obama dithers about it. When those present loudly booed an aide to Yucca Valley’s Republican Rep. Paul Cook, who wants the land to remain open to development, mining and other activities, Feinstein stood with an arm around his shoulders and shushed the crowed. It was another case of her treating a political opponent in a civilized manner that’s uncommon today. That sort of behavior has long prevented Republicans from considering her an enemy even when she advocates policies they may not like. At the same time, no one has been more vigorous than Feinstein on issues like torture, of which she has been a major opponent for years, even as she’s voted for laws like the Patriot Act. Although she no longer chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee because Republicans control the Senate, no senator is more active on national security issues, even if some have been much louder. The upshot is that Feinstein still operates in much the same manner she has since first getting elected in 1992, when she ousted Republican incumbent John Seymour, who had been appointed by then-Gov. Pete Wilson to the seat he had occupied for eight years. When they see that, and they see Feinstein in operation, as television commercials will surely depict, there’s a good chance the age issue making many voters skeptical of whether she should run again could simply disappear. Which means those polls questioning whether someone her age should be a senator might just turn around completely.

. What can I do to avoid lead exposure? .

exposure can cause anemia, make you irritable, affect your memory and ability to concentrate, and it can increase blood pressure, particularly in older people. Lead can also lead to digestive problems and cataracts. Exposure to high lead levels can be fatal. The following are some significant sources of lead exposure: tap water, lead-based paint that was used before it was banned from housing in 1978, soil, household dust, lead crystal or leadglazed pottery. Here are some steps you can take to prevent exposure to lead: • Clean up paint chips immediately. • Clean floors, window frames, window sills, and other surfaces weekly. • Wash hands often. * Clean or remove shoes before entering your home to avoid tracking in lead from soil. • Repair damaged painted surfaces • Plant grass to cover soil with high lead levels. • To remove lead hazards permanently, you must hire a certified lead-abatement contractor. Contact the National Lead Information Center (NLIC) to locate certified contractors in your area. You can email NLIC on this website: http://www2.epa.gov/lead

. What’s the best way to treat a nosebleed? . Resist every instinct in your body to tilt Full Service Salon your head back or to lie down. You have to

keep your head higher than your heart to cut down on bleeding. And, if you lean back, you can swallow blood, which can produce vomiting and diarrhea. The best technique is to sit down and lean slightly forward so the blood will drain out of your nose. Then, using your thumb and index finger, squeeze the soft portion of your nose together. Hold your nose until the bleeding stops. Don’t let go for at least five minutes. Repeat as necessary. You can also place an ice pack across the bridge of your nose. Self-treatment can stop almost all nosebleeds. If bleeding persists, get immediate medical attention.

Q A .

I’m thinking of getting a tattoo. How could it affect my health?

. Complications from tattoos are relatively uncommon. However, there are risks that include: blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis, tetanus, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS; granulomas, which are bumps that can form around tattoo; keloids, which are scars that grow beyond normal boundaries; local bacterial infections, and allergic reactions. Also, tattoos can create a misdiagnosis with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) because there is metal in many tattoo pigments. Magnets attract metals. So, tattoo pigments may interfere with the quality of the image from an MRI. In some rare cases, people experience swelling or burning in the tattoo when they have an MRI. If you decide to get a tattoo, make sure the establishment is licensed and reputable.

Predicting Who Will Develop MS

A

team of investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) has launched a study of individuals at risk for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). By focusing on first-degree family members of MS patients, the research team seeks to better understand the sequence of events that leads some people to develop the disease. Their work also sets the stage for developing and testing interventions with which to block the onset of MS. The research team introduces the Genes and Environment in Multiple Sclerosis (GEMS) project, a large prospective natural history study, in a publication in the Annals of Neurology. “Early detection of MS means the possibility of earlier treatment, which could delay the accumulation of disability,” said co-senior author Phil De Jager, MD, PhD, who directs the Program in Translational NeuroPsychiatric Genomics at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at BWH. “Our long-term goal is to map out the sequence of events leading from health to disease, in order to be able to identify and intervene early in individuals at high-risk of MS.” The GEMS study leverages the outreach efforts of patient advocacy groups such as the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, social media tools such as Facebook and electronic communication to recruit first-degree relatives (parent, sibling or child) of people who have been diagnosed with MS. More than 2,600 family members have been recruited from across the U.S. Family members can interact with the study via its Facebook page where updates on the project and MS-related news are shared. The study, which

will ultimately enroll 5,000 firstdegree relatives, will continue for the next 20 years. “This first report from the GEMS study is important because it shows that we can recruit the large number of family members that is necessary to perform a well-powered study of MS risk factors,” said lead author Zongqi Xia, PhD, of BWH’s Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases. Upon enrollment in the study, participants completed a webbased questionnaire about their medical history, family history, environmental exposures and more. Participants also submitted a saliva sample for DNA extraction. “Since the disease likely starts many years before the first symptom appears, we do not yet understand how genetic and environmental risk factors come together to trigger MS,” said cosenior author Daniel Reich, MD, PhD, of the Division of Neuroimmunology and Neurovirology at the NINDS. “When a patient comes to see a neurologist for the first time, the process of brain inflammation is well underway, since many lesions have few or no symptoms.” Although first-degree relatives are 20 to 40 times more likely to develop MS than the general population, their risk is still low: the researchers estimate that of 10,000 firstdegree relatives, only about 62 will be diagnosed with MS over five years. Having a means to predict who is most at risk for developing MS not only means opportunity for early intervention, but also makes clinical trials for new treatments more feasible since the incidence of MS is low in the general population. In their preliminary analysis, the research team tested a method to calculate an individ-

ual’s risk of MS, and identified a subset of family members that may have a higher risk of developing MS than the average family member. Although not yet clinically deployable, this risk score could help design long-term studies of higher-risk individuals. “This report is an important first step. We do not yet have a tool that we can use clinically to predict MS. To develop such tools further, and to develop a platform for testing strategies to prevent the disease altogether, we are expanding GEMS into a larger collaborative study that will accelerate the progress of discovery and bring together a community of investigators to overcome this important challenge,” says De Jager. “Overall, the risk of MS remains very small for most family members. The most effective therapies for MS will ultimately be those that prevent its onset, as halting inflammation and disease progression are much more difficult once the disease has become established.” Source: Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE

with Pastor Drew

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah

G

PART XLV

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” Over the past 2,000 years there have been many writings, books, messages, and ideas, expressing various thoughts and opinions concern who Jesus was and is. My intention in doing this series is that you, the reader may come to know who Jesus really is and there is no better place to look than the Word of God the Bible. This week we will continue to look at the events that occurred in the last days of the life of Jesus as recorded for us in Mark 11:20-33 “Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.” So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” Then they came again to Jerusalem. And as He was walking in the temple, the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders came to Him. And they said to Him, “By what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority to do these things?” But Jesus answered and said to them, “I also will ask you one question; then answer Me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things: The baptism of John-was it from heaven or from men? Answer Me.” And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “If we say, “From heaven,’ He will say, “Why then did you not believe him?’ But if we say, “From men”’--they feared the people, for all counted John to have been a prophet indeed. So they answered and said to Jesus, “We do not know.” And Jesus answered and said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.” The first portion of verses have to do with Jesus and His disciples walking by the fig tree He had cursed the day before. They observe that the tree was dried up from the roots. There are varying opinions as to the significance of this, some say Jesus was a prophecy against Israel for it’s rejection of Jesus; others say it is a picture of God’s judgment of those in the last days who stand before God and are judged for their faithlessness; along with a number of other ideas. As we look at the context (the verses that follow) we see Jesus uses this to describe the importance and power of faith. So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” This is followed with further instruction on prayer, “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” The final section has to do with the ongoing attempt of the religious leaders to trap Jesus in some way that they may have something to accuse Him of. Of course, Jesus being sinless, these attempts were all in vain. Drew Macintyre is associate pastor of Calvary Chapel of Alpine and can be reached at 619-445-2589, or ccalpinemac@gmail.com

Special Valentine’s Day Column from Sheila!

T

here’s only one way to hug. You knew that. How come everyone gets it wrong? From today on, you’ll know the proper way to hug. Not proper as in stiff ’n formal—proper as in the right way; the way that will make people love you instead of running and hiding when you approach them with your arms outstretched. A hug is an expression of love, or of concern or, if you live in Southern California, it’s simply a friendly greeting. Therefore the hug must not be controlling, aggressive or maudlin. No patpat-patting on the back during the hug. What are those pats for anyway? Grown men do it; proper ladies do it; I’ve never figured out why. It looks like the hugger doesn’t know what to do with his extra hand flung over your back. So he pats. Heaven forbid you should pat back. Did you ever see such a sight? Two people ensconced in an embrace, their hands pat-patpatting each other’s backs? I don’t know what’s with the patting. Sometimes I catch myself doing it, until, horrorstruck, I try to stop but it’s hard. My hand keeps on pat-pat-patting until I finally break free from the hug. Which I’m sure is as much a relief to my hug-ee as it is to me. No, a proper hug is just a hug. A warm embrace with a quick

#3 How to hug release—unless you’re hugging to comfort a friend who’s recently suffered a tragedy; then you want to hold him or her long enough to share their pain. Otherwise, a hug should be two arms encircling a friend, briefly and lightly, with a quick release. Because, you know, when you hug someone, they’re under your control. Unless they hug you back, harder and longer; then you’re under their control and that’s not what hugs are about. Hugs are about “Glad to see you!” Hugs are about “Sorry you lost your job.” Hugs are about, “I care.” So none of this grabbing and squeezing and not letting go. No controlling hugging—that’s the worst. There are initiated hugs and reciprocal hugs. They share the same characteristics. Initiated hugs are when you reach out to a friend or acquaintance who looks like she wouldn’t mind being hugged. This is tricky: never initiate a hug if you’re not sure the targeted hug-ee will welcome having your arms surrounding him or her. This could have disastrous results. But if you’re filled with love and goodwill and just can’t keep yourself from hugging someone without assessing the situation first, I can only say one thing: make it quick and light. And no patting!!! Reciprocal hugs happen when someone has taken you in their grasp and you can’t get away.

S

The only thing left to do is to hug back. But you have your pride so make yours a proper hug: light, friendly and quick—no patting!—and then squirm your way out of the hugger’s grip. No matter what it takes. You’re the boss here. There are wonderful reciprocal hugs, too. Those are when, unexpectedly, someone you’ve run into is so glad to see you, he spontaneously gives you a quick embrace. Of course you hug him back! What else could you do? How often is someone so glad to see you, they can’t help themselves from hugging you? Oh, sorry. I didn’t mean anything by that. I’m sure you have lots of friends. And you’ll have lots more, once you master the art of proper hugging. Short version: A proper hug is light, friendly and quick and involves no pat-pat-patting on the back. A proper hug is one that is welcome to the hug-ee.

SMART START

The Start Smart Program is an opportunity for new drivers and their parents/guardians to clearly understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to drive. Taught by trained law enforcement personnel, it creates awareness of possible consequences, both financial and physical, of distracted or impaired driving, and provides applicable information about collision prevention. The class also clarifies the restrictions of the Provisional License Law and touches on social host ordinances. The often-graphic videos and daunting statistics provide a powerful reality check that lingers long after the classroom instruction. Following the two-hour class, each teen is presented a certificate of completion along with a custom-designed key-chain bearing the theme of the Teen Safe Driving Program, which will serve as a reminder each time he or she starts the car. This is a concerted effort intended to reduce the risks associated with teen driving. We encourage you to contact your local Sheriff’s station to sign up for a Start Smart class in your area.
