Local Kiwanis Member Receives Club Patriot Honors

LONG BEACH — Saturday, Feb. 6, numerous members of the Alpine Kiwanis Club ventured up the Interstate to Long Beach to attend the CalNev-Ha Kiwanis Mid-Winter Conference, held on the Queen Mary. During a presentation held at the closing ceremonies, Kiwanian Dan Foster was presented the Kiwanis Patriotism Award-Club Patriot by Immediate Past District Governor Alan Guire with Alpine Kiwanis Club Immediate PastPresident, Greg Fox, looking on. This is the second year in a row that the Alpine Kiwanis Club has received this award, which without Dan Foster’s able assistance and guidance would not have occurred. The residents of Alpine are able to proudly see our American Flag presented daily at the Alpine Veterans Wall of Honor and also revel in their beauty on all National Holidays at the corner of Alpine Blvd and Tavern Road. This is all thanks due to the efforts and leadership of Dan Foster

Santee City Council Recognizes Evelyn Black’s 100th Birthday

SANTEE — Evelyn Mae Fredericksen Black received a Proclamation from the City of Santee recognizing her for celebrating her 100th birthday on Monday, Feb. 15. Mayor Randy Voepel presented Evelyn and her family with the proclamation at the Feb. 10 council meeting. Evelyn has been a Santee resident for more than 15 years. Blessed with excellent health, Evelyn continues to keep her mind sharp by doing word puzzles and reading the newspaper every morning to stay current on all the news and weather around the world. Born in Towanda, she enjoyed rural Kansas life until the age of eight when she and her family moved to Santa Monica, CA. While in high school she developed into a talented calligraphist and discovered a love of horses that continues to this day. When she was about 18 she joined the Santa Monica Bay Lancerettes, Fourth Squadron – an equestrian cavalry patrol of 50 women from the Santa Monica and Beverly Hills area. She quickly advanced to the role of captain. The patrol had the opportunity to meet many personalities of the day; one of Evelyn’s favorites was Mary Pickford. Evelyn was honored when she and the Lancerettes were asked to ride in the Tournament of Roses Parade January 1, 1937. In the early 1940’s Evelyn moved to Pasadena, CA. One day, when picking her sister up from work, Evelyn met her soon to be husband of over 50 years, Clarence Black. A devoted mother of three, she balanced family life, working, and volunteering for many years. The family traveled often within the USA. Later she and Clarence moved to Laguna Hills and after retiring they traveled extensively throughout Europe. They also loved to dance at the many functions available in the area. Soon Evelyn was indulging her artistic side – painting stunning water colors with birds and flowers as her favorite subjects. Fifteen years ago, Evelyn and Clarence moved to Santee, where she lives today enjoying her friends, children and grandson. She continues to live a life of love and compassion for others. Happy 100th Birthday Evelyn Black!

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Time to Stop the Revolving Door in Sacramento

T

The contest should increase youth perception of harm from marijuana use, and decrease marijuana use by youth. Here are the details: • The contest is open county-wide to middle and high school students • Groups and individuals may enter • Videos should last no more than 30 seconds • Submissions are due: 4/11/16 There are three topics to pick from: 1. The negative impact of youth marijuana use on physical or emotional health. 2. The negative impact of youth marijuana use on achieving your goals. 3. The negative impact of marijuana legalization on youth marijuana use. This year NCPC will fund three cash prizes: 1st place - $500, 2nd place - $250 and 3rd place - $100

here’s probably no hope of stopping the revolving door in Washington, D.C. anytime soon. The constant cycle of longtime Congress members and senators moving downtown from the Capitol to take high-paying jobs as lobbyists can only be ended by Congress itself – and the prospect of big paychecks to come makes it very unlikely many so-called “citizen politicians” will ever vote to end that. But Sacramento is different. On the surface, it’s much the same, of course. Legislators move easily and often from the Assembly or state Senate to lobbying jobs just as lucrative as any to be had in the nation’s capital. The difference is that the people of California can effectively end this practice anytime they like, via the initiative process. The latest example of a state lawmaker taking a far more lucrative job on the side of big business came just this winter, when five-year Democratic Assemblyman Henry T. Perea departed office with a year to go in his third term, taking a job advocating for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, usually referred to as PhRMA. It is the main lobbying group for the drug companies often called Big Pharma. Perea, the son of former longtime legislator and current Fresno County Supervisor Henry Perea, will be advocating for Big Pharma in both California and Nevada, with the Nevada capital of Carson City not very far from his new Sacramento office. He’s the third California legislator in the last 30 months to leave for a higher paycheck as a lobbyist – even though state law says he can’t actually schmooze or gift his former colleagues until the end of this year. That’s right: Legislators only have to wait 12 months before coming back to advocate directly among their old colleagues. Before Perea waltzed down the path toward a much bigger paycheck, former Democratic state Sen. Michael Rubio of Shafter moved to a job with Chevron and former Republican state Sen. Bill Emmerson of Riverside County moved to the California Hospital Assn. And that’s just within the last 26 months. Perea made just over $97,000 a year in the Legislature; his new employer isn’t announcing his salary, but bet on it being at least double what he drew in office. Perea, father of two young children with a third on the way, probably can use the extra cash. Big Pharma had invested in him earlier, too, donating nearly $50,000 to his campaigns in the 2013-14 election cycle. This is enough to make some wonder whether the new job might be a reward for past favors, perhaps even a reward that was promised even before those favors were done. The very short one-year lobbying prohibition makes it attractive for big industries to hire lawmakers who once voted on bills vital to their interests. Twelve months often isn’t long in the life of a bill, and after that time is up, former lawmakers like Perea can be right back in the Capitol advocating among their buddies. Not that he won’t be seeing them elsewhere before then. Perea, whose unofficial bio says he was “known for his skill at working the floor in the Legislature,” will be doing that again very soon. He also won’t have to worry any more about which fellow legislators he pleases or angers with his votes. Everyone will know where he stands – right where his employer tells him to. Even before he can officially lobby anyone in the Capitol, Perea this fall will probably be instrumental in the campaign against a prospective ballot measure that aims to limit drug prices paid by Medi-Cal and other state programs to levels negotiated by the federal Veterans Administration. It’s a joke for legislators to be able to come back and lobby their pals so soon after leaving office. There ought to be at least a five-year waiting period for them, which might cause second thoughts for some who enter politics just to get on the gravy train. This will not happen in Washington, D.C. in the foreseeable future. But it could happen in Sacramento if citizens get sufficiently fed up with legislators like Perea parlaying elected jobs into high-paying posts as influence peddlers.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

. Is it true that pesticides are responsible for people

getting Parkinson’s disease?

A

. Although genetics is very important in Parkinson’s disease (PD), environmental exposures also increase a person’s risk of developing the disease. Scientists have known for some time that farm workers who used pesticides, or people who lived or worked near fields where they could inhale drifting pesticides, have an increased risk of PD. PD was first described in 1817 by Dr. James Parkinson, a British physician. It affects 1 in 100 people over the age of 60. I t can also affect younger people. The average age of onset is 60. Research suggests that PD affects at least 500,000 people in the United States. PD is a complex disorder of the central nervous system. It is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the United St00ates, after Alzheimer’s. The defining symptoms of PD include tremor, slowness of movement, rigidity, and impaired balance and coordination. As these symptoms become more pronounced, patients may have difficulty walking, talking, or completing simple tasks. They also may experience depression, difficulty sleeping and other problems. The progression of symptoms in PD may take 20 years or more. In some people, however, the disease progresses much more quickly. In the early 1960s, scientists determined that the loss of brain cells was causing PD. The cells that were depleted produced dopamine, a chemical that helps control muscle activity. Today, PD is treated with drugs and surgery. Medications for PD fall into three categories.The first includes drugs that increase the level of dopamine in the brain. The second category affects neurotransmitters in the body to ease some of the symptoms of the disease. The third category includes medications that help control the non-motor symptoms of the disease such as depression. There are two commonly used surgical treatments for PD: pallidotomy and deep brain stimulation. Because these procedures are invasive, they are usually reserved for severely afflicted Parkinson’s patients who do not get adequate relief from medications. Surgeons discovered that, by removing or destroying parts of the brain that were “misfiring,” some of the symptoms of PD could be alleviated. One of these operations is pallidotomy. Scientists have found that they can mimic the effects of pallidotomy by deep brain stimulation (DBS). With DBS, an electrode is implanted in the brain in a way that calms the abnormal neuronal firing. DBS is now the primary surgical intervention for PD. A wide variety of complementary and supportive therapies may be used for PD. Among these therapies are standard rehabilitation techniques, which can help with problems such as gait and voice disorders, tremors and rigidity, and cognitive decline. Exercise may help people improve their mobility. While Parkinson’s is a complex disease, research has progressed a great deal in recent years. Halting the progression of PD, restoring lost function, and even preventing the disease are now considered realistic goals.

Brain Scars in MS Patients Reveal Possible Cause of Taste Problems

T

Sizable Number of MS Patients Appear to Exhibit Taste Deficits

aste deficits appear to be more prevalent among Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients than previously reported and correlate with brain lesions left by the debilitating disease, a new study from the University of Pennsylvania’s Smell and Taste Center and the department of Radiology found. The more lesions spotted on an MRI, the worse the taste function of the patient, the multi-institutional team reported in the Journal of Neurology. The researchers, including lead author Richard Doty, PhD, director of Penn’s Smell and Taste Center and professor of Psychology in Otorhinolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery at Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine, administered a standard taste test (sweet, sour, bitter, and salty) to 73 MS patients and 73 controls subjects, along with MRI of 52 brain regions known to be impacted by MS in both groups. They found that the neurological disease significantly influenced the ability to identify tastes, especially salty and sweet. Fifteen to 32 percent of MS patients—which is nearly twice as high as previous studies found—had taste scores below the 5th percentile of controls. What’s more, taste scores were inversely correlated with lesion amounts and volumes in the large sectors of the frontal and temporal lobes, the higher regions of the brain, identified on the MRI. “This study represents the most comprehensive study preformed to date on the influences of MS on the ability to taste,” Doty said. “It appears that a sizable number of these patients exhibit taste deficits, more so than originally thought. This suggests that altered taste function, though less noticeable than changes in vision, is a relatively common feature in MS. “These findings give us a better insight about that relationship, as well as the areas of the brain that are more

likely to impact the dysfunction when scarred from the disease.” Common symptoms associated with MS include vision loss (optic neuritis), a hallmark symptom of MS, fatigue, facial pain and cognitive difficulties, among others; however, the connection between taste problems and MS is less clear and reportedly rare. Some studies put the number as low as five percent and as high as 20 percent, though many were self-reported accounts or included smaller number of patients with little detail about testing. Also, patients often mistake olfactory issues with taste problems, skewing the numbers. Importantly, the correlation between taste dysfunction and the myelin-related lesions—which are caused by the nerve damage from the disease—has not been made. Isabelle A. Tourbier, a researcher in the department of Otolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery and Smell and Taste Center at Penn, and Jayaram K. Udupa, PhD, chief of the Medical Imaging section in the department of Radiology at Penn, are co-authors on the study. The team also included researchers from Johns Hopkins University, Michigan State University, Columbia University, Izmir Institute of Technology in Turkey, and the Henry Jackson Foundation. MS affects the central nervous system, with more than 450,000 people in the United States living with the autoimmune disease, making it among the most common neurological illnesses in North America. Although MS can appear at any age, it most commonly begins between the ages of 20 and 40, and affects women twice as often as men. For the taste tests, concentrations of each of the four tastes were pipetted on the left and right sides of the front and back of the tongue for a total of 96 tests for each of the participants. Each identified the taste (sweet, salt, bitter, sour) and graded each test on a scale

ddean@echerald.com

from “very weak” to “very strong.” Based on the tests, the percentage of MS patients with identification scores falling the below the fifth percentile of the controls was 15.07 percent for caffeine, 21.9 percent for citric acid, 24.66 percent for sucrose, and 31.50 percent for sodium chloride, the researchers found. Such scores were inversely correlated with lesion volumes in the brain, including temporal, medial frontal, and superior frontal lobes, and the number of lesions in the left and right superior frontal lobes, right anterior cingulate gyrus, and left parietal operculum. Regardless of subject group, women outperformed men on taste measures, which mirrors what previous taste studies have found. It is likely due to the fact that women have more taste papillae and taste buds than men, the researchers note. “Future studies investigating the relationship between taste and MS may help better diagnose and understand the disease, as well as better manage symptoms,” Doty said.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE

with Pastor Drew

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah

G

PART XLVI

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” 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 look at Mark 12:1-12 “Then He began to speak to them in parables: “A man planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a place for the wine vat and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers and went into a far country. Now at vintagetime he sent a servant to the vine-dressers, that he might receive some of the fruit of the vineyard from the vinedressers. And they took him and beat him and sent him away empty-handed. Again he sent them another servant, and at him they threw stones, wounded him in the head and sent him away shamefully treated. And again he sent another, and him they killed; and many others, beating some and killing some. Therefore still having one son, his beloved, he also sent him to them last, saying, “They will respect my son.’ But those vinedressers said among themselves, “This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ So they took him and killed him and cast him out of the vineyard. “Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vinedressers, and give the vineyard to others. Have you not even read this Scripture: “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?” And they sought to lay hands on Him, but feared the multitude, for they knew He had spoken the parable against them. So they left Him and went away.” The first thing we need to understand about our text is to whom is Jesus speaking this parable. The context (the immediate verses prior to our text, v27-33 in the previous chapter) tells us it was the chief priests; scribes; and elders. Next we need to understand what a parable is and why Jesus taught in parables. A parable is a true to life story that contains spiritual truth; Jesus taught in parables so that those who wanted to understand spiritual truth could and those who did not it would seem foolishness to them. Now let us consider this parable and it’s meaning, the Old Testament book of Isaiah helps us with this. Isaiah 5:1-7 “Now let me sing to my Well-beloved a song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard: My Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, and also made a winepress in it; so He expected it to bring forth good grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes. And now O of Jerusalem and men of Judah, judge, please, between Me and My vineyard. What more could have been done to My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, did it bring forth wild grapes? And now, please let Me tell you what I will do to My vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be burned; and break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down. I will lay it waste; it shall not be pruned or dug, but there shall come up briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain on it.” For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah are His pleasant plant. He looked for justice, but behold, oppression; for righteousness, but behold, a cry for help.” The best way of understanding God’s Word the Bible is by using the Bible, let Scripture interpret Scripture. The vineyard is picture of the nation Israel; God is the One who planted it; He had various leaders through the years watch over it to take care of it; some did good and right, most did wrong and evil; God sent His prophets over the years to attempt to correct the wrong, they were killed by the wicked leaders; finally God sent His son Jesus Christ whom they killed as well. This parable was directed at the religious leaders of Jesus’ day; they knew it and did not like it.
