Career Master Pilot Takes Final Flight Veteran of the U.S. Navy ALBERT “JAY” SHOWER Dies of Natural Causes Saturday, February 10, 2018

EL Cajon Collaborative Celebrating 25 Years

The East County Herald EL CAJON — The field of aviation lost a prolific airman when Albert Joseph “Jay” Shower, Jr. (USN Ret.) died of natural causes on Saturday, February 10, at his residence in Scottsdale, Arizona. Previously, he resided in EL Cajon for over a decade. Shower was a Vietnam veteran who served as an officer in the United States Navy for more than 22 years until his retirement and honorable discharge in 1983. In total, his adventurous career in aviation spanned nearly 70 years and took him around the world on numerous occasions. “Flying is the love of my life,” said Shower, whose deep passion for flight was unleashed on his 10th Birthday in 1947, when his father, Col. Albert Joseph Shower, a Westpoint graduate and highly decorated officer in the United States Army Air Force during WWII, let him take “left seat” controls of a B-29 Superfortress. After graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1961, Shower embarked on a 22-year career as an officer and super-sonic jet pilot in the U.S. Navy. Flight training in the T-34, T2B, F9F and F11A prepared him for a five-year tour of duty in Vietnam, where he flew all models of the A-4 Skyhawk in 137 combat missions off the USS Ticonderoga aircraft carrier. Upon his return from Vietnam, Shower attended the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and earned a Masters degree as an Aeronautical Engineer, while flying the T2, T33, T34, S2F and T28 aircraft. Subsequently, he was assigned as an exchange pilot for the Royal Navy to fly the Hunter and Buccaneer aboard the HMS Eagle. Upon his return to the U.S. Navy two years later, he spent five years flying reconnaissance missions world wide in the supersonic (Mach 2+) RA5 Vigilante, several years as a Naval Flight Instructor and several more as a Ferry Pilot, qualified in 23 different makes and models of jet aircraft. His last two years as a Navy Pilot, Shower was stationed at the Naval Air Rework Facility in Norfolk, MD, where he served as a functional Test Pilot in the F-14 Tomcat and A-6 Intruder. By the end of his Navy career, Shower had flown every jet the Navy had in its inventory up to that point. Retirement from the U.S. Navy opened the door for Shower to embark on new adventures and uncharted territory in General Aviation. By then, with more than 10,000 hours of military flight time, Shower’s experience and credentials made him an invaluable resource for other aviators in the civil aviation community. An active member of Earth-Rounders fellowship, Shower has circumnavigated the globe, crossing the equator on numerous occasions, and crossing the Geodetic North Pole in his single engine Bonanza. He

For The East County Herald

was one of only a handful of aviators to have flown multiple crossoceanic flights, delivering single engine planes to pilots located in Europe, New Zealand, Australia and Hawaii, earning himself a reputation as the “go-to” guy for ferrying single engine aircraft to and from anywhere in the world. In 1995, Shower won first place Gold Medal in the T-28 Unlimited Division at the Phoenix 500 Air Races. For 20 consecutive years, Shower flew to the Oshkosh Air Show in Wisconsin. He was an active member of the Flying Eagles, Experimental Aircraft Association, Antique Aircraft Association, Tailhook Association, Earth Rounders and Quiet Birdmen Society. He also served as President of the 467th Bombardment Group, which hosts annual reunions to honor members of the squadron his father, Col. Shower led into combat during WWII. As a volunteer pilot for Mercy Outreach Surgical Team, Shower flew numerous charitable missions several times per year to deliver medical supplies to hospitals and doctors throughout Mexico. Shower’s impressive credentials reach far beyond his expertise as a pilot. As an FAAdesignated inspector and certified airframe and power-plant mechanic, Shower has been an invaluable resource conducting aircraft inspections, diagnostics, and repairs for hundreds of civil aircraft owners throughout the U.S. He was also a certificated flight instructor (CFI, CFII and CFI-MEI), passing along his wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for aviation to fledgling aviators. Shower’s superb aviator expertise was illustrated in March 2007 when he led the “Flying Eagles” group from San Diego to La Serenidad fly-in hotel, Mulege, Baja California, Mexico, for a whale watching expedition. Following the day’s adventures Shower gathered the group of about 20 pilots at midnight for a practicum on celestial naviga-

tion. In pitch dark conditions in the middle of a 5000 foot runway on a clear night with all constellations from the Big Dipper to the Southern Cross clearly visible, Shower proceeded with a dissertation of “short handed” methods to find the North Star if not visible from right angle projections of Orion’s Belt and other key sighting stars from various constellations. In 2009, Shower was presented with a “Blue Ribbon” book containing over 150 pages of certificates, exam scores and credentials documenting his entire flying career when he received the FAA Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award in recognition of his lifetime achievement as a career pilot in both military and civil aviation. While residing in El Cajon, Shower flew his Bonanza airplanes from Gillespie Field to destinations all over the world, sometimes solo and often accompanied by his significant other of more than 10 years, Ann Pooch and others in the area. He is survived by his son, Major Brenden Shower and daughter-in-law Seiko Shower, also a private pilot, his daughter Snowden Bishop and son-in-law Markus Herm, an instrumentrated private pilot and his two young grandsons, Kaden and Bryden Shower, whose pilot log books Jay Shower signed to carry the family legacy of aviation into the next generation. Jay Shower will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery in a pre-designated plot next to his late father, Col. Albert J. Shower and mother, Damaris Smith Shower. The family will be hosting a celebration of Shower’s life at his Gillespie Field hangar, Saturday, Feb.17, for relatives and close friends. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that charitable donations be made in his name to either Veterans for Safe Access or Miracle Flights foundation.

EL CAJON — The El Cajon Collaborative celebrated their 25th anniversary at Little House in 2017, and their group is getting stronger in 2018 with their February Collaborative Council meeting already bringing more bright ideas to benefit people in El Cajon. The El Cajon Collaborative is a non-profit organization that partners with five different agencies to provide the El Cajon Community with food pantries, job assistance, domestic violence resources, social services, and housing assistance, and it provides guidance to different agencies in the Little House building. At the anniversary event last November, Carol Lewis, the Collaborative Coordinator, and Dana Stevens, the Board President, held a ceremony honoring several founding board members and celebrating the success the El Cajon Collaborative has had in the past 25 years. State Senator Joel Anderson provided Lewis with a Senate certificate of recognition. This award honored the El Cajon Collaborative for their 25 years of dedication to the community. Anderson shared, “El Cajon Collaborative is a fantastic example of the community working together on local solutions to local issues. I am so grateful for Carol and her team’s dedication to making our community a healthy and safe place to live for all our residents.” When asked what it meant to have the support of local elected officials, such as Anderson, Stevens shared, “It means everything in the world to have the support of local elected officials. So much of their job is about making decisions about the policy that affect the lives of people that live here. Having the elected officials understand what the challenges are for the families and how different policies will impact them for better or for worse is really important to us.” Lewis commented on her favorite part of the ceremony, saying, “I always love acknowledging the people who have donated their time because it is so important to the structure of El Cajon Collaborative.” Lewis and Stevens are dedicated to providing resources to the community of El Cajon, and are very thankful for all their sponsors who assist in making it possible.

Your Congress In The News with Congressman Duncan D. Hunter House Passes ADA Reform Legislation Protecting Small Business Owners WASHINGTO, DC — Congressman Duncan Hunter (CA50) voted in favor of H.R. 620, Thursday, Feb. 15, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017, when it passed the House by a margin of 225-192. Congressman Hunter is a cosponsor of this bill, which will now be referred to the Senate for consideration. The following are Congressman Hunter’s remarks in support of its passage from the Congressional Record: Mr. Speaker: I rise today in support of H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017. This is overdue legislation that will increase protections for individuals with disabilities while providing business and property owners the opportunity to remedy ADA infractions before unnecessary lawsuits and the costs that accompany litigation. Under the current ADA law, lawyers may collect fees when suing businesses or property owners, but plaintiffs cannot collect damages. The current system

has created “drive-by” demand letters sent by lawyers, like a bulk mailer, to every location on Main St. or at a small mall. In some cases it was not clear that the plaintiff had even attempted to access the property or had even gone inside. The emphasis was on filing the lawsuit and collecting fees without regard for increasing accessibility for the disabled. Sometimes the infractions are easily corrected: signage, soap dispenser heights. In my district in East San Diego County we have quaint, older towns that are notable for their historical structures dating back to the 1800s. These communities are proud of their heritage and these buildings are a source of local pride and tourism. In Julian, an old gold mining and apple growing town, the Julian Town Hall was threatened by a lawsuit. A public relations stunt was held there where someone crawled up the steps of the town hall, cameras rolling, despite the fact that a handicap accessible

Congressman Duncan D. Hunter ramp was located on the side of the building. In Ramona, a predatory lawyer targeted every business on Main St. with various and frivolous claims. It is for these and other reasons I introduced similar legislation, H.R. 777, the ADA Notification Act of 2013. With the “notice and cure” provision in H.R. 620, drive-by lawsuits will be eliminated, business will have an opportunity to remedy any deficiency, and there will be increased compliance and correction because property and business owners cannot defer the corrections.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias

‘College Contradiction’ Threatens State’s Future

C

all it the college contradiction. Just when a major study finds that California is about to fall far behind in producing the college-educated workforce that some of its biggest and fastest-growing businesses will soon need, half the state’s citizens say they don’t think a college degree brings greater success in life. Examining the second part of that major contradiction first, information from the Public Policy Institute of California clearly demonstrates that college graduates do better in life than others, at least financially. No, material success doesn’t always produce happiness, and no one would sensibly argue that the wealthy don’t have problems. But the PPIC analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau is clear that the more education a person has, the higher his or her annual income tends to be. Yes, there exceptions, like technology titans Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and the late Steve Jobs of Apple Corp., both college dropouts, but for the vast majority, the results are plain. The average annual wage for someone with a graduate degree is more than $121,000, while the average bachelor’s degree holder makes more than $86,000. Community college grads average $58,000 and those who attended some college make $53,000. By contrast, high school graduates get $41,000 and high school dropouts just $31,000. So there’s little doubt: The 50 percent who say college is unneeded for material success are just plain wrong. But they still vote. And while the overwhelming majority of Californians in a just-released PPIC survey (79 percent) don’t want any increases in college and university student fees, no one knows where the funds to increase the number of college graduates will come from. For sure, the survey found most Californians don’t want higher taxes, even though a large majority pronounced themselves likely to vote for a higher education construction bond issue. The PPIC’s analysis of Census figures was a foundation for testimony from the non-partisan, non-profit institute before a state Assembly committee considering changes to California’s Master Plan for Higher Education, in place since the early 1960s. It concluded that the state’s workforce must include 38.4 percent highly educated persons by 2030, compared with the 29.7 percent that were required in 2000 and the 35.3 percent that will be needed in 2020. Failure to place that proportion of college graduates into the workforce would likely require importing more immigrant workers for high-paying jobs in computer- and technology-related industries or moving significant plants and laboratories out of the state. Ironically, some of the same politicians who have long decried a supposed trend of businesses doing just that – setting up new facilities in states from Texas and Idaho to the Virginia suburbs of Washington D.C. – also regularly oppose increased state funding for the University of California and the California State University system. But the PPIC information demonstrates they can’t have it both ways – they can’t have continued prosperity without investing at least some more money to enable it. Hans Johnson, director of the PPIC Higher Education Center, testified that the increase in demand for educated workers doesn’t come merely from high-tech employers. He said there is also increased demand for educational attainment within longer-established professions. Among nurses, for example, 57 percent were college graduates in 2000, compared with 68 percent in 2015 and even more today. The degrees are needed both to get hired and to keep jobs longterm. Reported Johnson, “We find higher labor force participation rates, lower unemployment rates and higher wages for workers with a bachelor’s degree than for those without…overall, the premium for college graduates relative to less educated workers has grown.” And there is no sign the disparity will ever close. But that doesn’t stop half of Californians from thinking college is unnecessary. While majorities of African-Americans, Asian-Americans and Latinos say college should be a high priority, only 35 percent of whites agree. No one has yet studied why whites are less convinced of the value of education than others. But the bottom line is that as long as only half of Californians think college is needed, the majority of voters won’t be very willing to tap their wallets to support it. And yet, they must if California is to prosper. That’s the very dangerous college contradiction now facing this state.

The Healthy Geezer with Fred Cietti Xerostomia, Cotton Mouth

Q

. My mouth seems to be a bit dry most of the time. Does this mean anything?

A

. Everyone experiences dry mouth occasionally. We get it when we are under stress. But if you have dry mouth all or most of the time, you need medical help. The medical term for this condition is xerostomia. Symptoms of this problem are: saliva that seems thick, sores or split skin at the corners of your mouth, difficulty speaking and swallowing, bad breath, a change in your sense of taste, increased plaque, tooth decay and gum disease. Most xerostomia is related to the medications taken by older adults rather than to the effects of aging. More than 400 medicines can affect the salivary glands. These include drugs for urinary incontinence, allergies, high blood pressure, depression, diarrhea and Parkinson’s disease. Also, some overthe-counter medications often cause dry mouth. Dry mouth can also be caused by cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, nerve damage in the head or neck, the autoimmune disease Sjogren’s syndrome, endocrine disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, anxiety disorders and depression. Sjögren’s syndrome can occur either by itself or with another autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Salivary and tear glands are the major targets of the syndrome. The result of the syndrome is a decrease in production of saliva and tears. The syndrome can occur at any age, but the average person with the disorder at the Sjögren’s Syndrome Clinic of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) is in his or her late 50s. Women with the disorder outnumber men 9 to one. In addition, tobacco, alcohol (in beverages and mouthwash), drinks with caffeine, snoring and breathing with your mouth open can aggravate dry mouth. If you think you have dry mouth, go to your doctor or dentist. Your doctor may adjust your medication that is suspected of causing the problem. Or, your doctor may prescribe a medication to stimulate saliva production. There are other ways to improve saliva flow. Try sugar-free hard candy or chewing gum. Avoid lemon-flavored hard candy, because it makes saliva acidic, increasing the possibility of tooth decay. You can also sip water regularly, try over-the-counter saliva substitutes, avoid breathing through your mouth, and use a humidifier in your bedroom. If you have dry mouth, you have to pay greater attention to your teeth. Brush your teeth with an extra-soft toothbrush after every meal and at bedtime. If brushing hurts, soften the bristles in warm water. Floss your teeth gently every day. Always use toothpaste with fluoride in it. If you have a sweet snack, brush right away.

Gold Nanocrystals May Remyelinate Lesions in MS

C

lene Nanomedicine, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of Clean Surface Nanotherapeutic (CSNTM) drugs using an electro-crystalchemistry drug development platform, announced Friday, Feb. 2, results from multiple preclinical studies with CNM-Au8 demonstrating remyelination effects as a potential treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other demyelinating disorders. The data were presented in the ‘Cutting Edge Developments in MS Research’ Session of the third annual Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) Forum, held Feb 1-3, in San Diego. In MS, demyelination — the loss of the myelin sheaths surrounding neurons — is accompanied by a disturbance in the ability of nerve cells to conduct signals to and from the brain. CNM-Au8 is a novel orally administered gold nanocrystal suspension. CNM-Au8 demonstrated significant remyelination activity in multiple animal demyelination models of MS. One model used the ingested toxin cuprizone, and the other used injected lysolecithin, to achieve demyelination of CNS neurons and spinal nerve axons,

respectively. Statistically significant improvements in remyelination were demonstrated via quantitation of myelin using i m m u n o h i s t o ch e m i s t r y and transmission electron microscopy. Remyelination was observed in the lysolecithin model using Luxol fast blue staining and immunohistochemistry followed by quantitation of myelin markers, confirming CNMAu8’s robust remyelinating effects. Data demonstrating the catalytic enhancement of cellular bioenergetic processes as the mechanism of action of CNM-Au8 were also presented. Clene Nanomedicine collaborated with Prof. Stephen D. Miller of Northwestern University, and Prof. Robert H. Miller of George Washington University, and their respective labs on these studies. “Remyelination of MS lesions represents an important unmet clinical need unaddressed by current therapies. Clene’s preclinical remyelination data are very encouraging, and the proposed mechanism of action of enhanced bioenergetics driving cellular differentiation and myelin production is unique and represents a paradigm shift in MS therapeutics,” observed Dr. Mark S. Freedman, Professor of Neurology, University of Ottawa. “We are committed to developing a new thera-

ddean@echerald.com peutic class of treatments that disrupts the old paradigms of drug discovery. CNM-Au8, our lead asset, is realizing this goal. The therapeutic potential of CNMAu8 for helping patients with demyelinating disorders is significant,” said Rob Etherington, CEO of Clene Nanomedicine. “No other drugs approved for the treatment of MS have been shown to remyelinate chronic MS-induced lesions. For this reason, we are looking forward to the launch of our VISIONARY-MS Phase 2 trial in the summer of 2018 with oral administration of CNM-Au8 in adults with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis who suffer from chronic optic neuropathy.”

The Promises of God

G

Part XLIV

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled “The Promises of God”. As ment i o n e d in part one of this series, there are but a few promises to all of mankind, the vast majority are to those who have become His children by adoption through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin. Some may think this is not “fair”, that all of God’s promises should be to everyone. Well they are to everyone that will repent of sin and turn to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin. Think of this way, you are a parent, your children have your protection; love; provision; sacrifice; and will inherit what you have at your departure. Should others who are not your children or even those who hate you and your children be beneficiaries of what you have for your own children? Of course not, that would be absurd! Another of God’s wonderful promises is that of fruitfulness, bearing fruit. Now I am not talking about the fruit that comes from fruit trees or vines rather that comes from the Holy Spirit working in one’s life, it is known as the fruit of the Spirit. Once again there are a number of verses that attest to this and we will consider just a few of them. Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man that walk not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bring forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Jeremiah 17:7-8 “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” Isaiah 58:10-11 “And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: and the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.” John 15:1-5; 7-8; 15-16 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing… If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples..… Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” Galatians 5:16-17; 22-23 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would…. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

SPORTS BEAT with Steve Dolan USD Pitcher Nominated for Prestigious Award

U

SA Baseball has announced its 55-player preseason Golden Spikes Award watch list, beginning the process of identifying the top amateur baseball player in the country for the 2018 season. University of San Diego junior pitcher Nick Sprengel is the seventh Torero to be selected to the list. “What a great honor for Nick,” said head coach Rich Hill. “He is another in a long line of Toreros to be nominated for this prestigious award. He is a great role model, not only for the USD baseball program, but for the University of San Diego. Nick represents the values that we all strive for.” A preseason All-America candidate, Sprengel returns after an outstanding sophomore campaign when he finished 9-1 overall with a 3.29 ERA. His win-loss mark tied a Torero record for best in a single season. He struck out 86 batters and walked just 33 in 82 innings last season, while holding opposing hitters to a .244 batting average. Sprengel played for the USA Collegiate National Team over the summer. Previous Toreros to be named to the preseason watch list include Riley Adams (2017), Bryson Brigman (2016), Kris Bryant (2013), Michael Wagner (2013), A.J. Griffin (2009, 2008) and Josh Romanski (2008). Bryant, now an All-Star with the Chicago Cubs, went on to win the prestigious award. USD has been picked to finish second in the 2018 West Coast Conference preseason coaches poll. The Toreros earned four of nine possible first-place votes and 71 overall points. San Diego was edged out by BYU (74 points, 5 first place votes), the reigning WCC tournament champion. Saint Mary’s earned the final first place vote and finished with 66 points for third place. Rounding out the poll was Gonzaga (57), Loyola Marymount (53), San Francisco (36), Pepperdine (35), Santa Clara (27), Pacific (19) and Portland (12).
