La Mesa Residents Share Ideas for Age-Friendly Communities

San Diego County News Center for The East County Herald

AIS Director Ellen Schmeding, second from left, listens to a La Mesa resident sharing an idea of how to improve the quality of life for older adults in the region. LA MESA — The ideas came as quickly as someone could type them on the laptop as community residents in La Mesa shared their visions of an age-friendly community with the County’s Aging & Independence Services (AIS). AIS, part of the County of San Diego’s Health and Human Services Agency, hosted the first in a series of seven community gatherings Tuesday, Feb. 23 in La Mesa,, seeking ideas for improving the quality of life for older adults in the region. “We heard such great feedback from the older adults, and we had students in the room and other members of the community,” said Ellen Schmeding, AIS director. “They really put their heart and soul into giving us the needed input. “This is the kickoff of our

series of sessions and we can see that we are on a roll.” Every four years, AIS is required to submit a plan to the California Department of Aging outlining the County’s goals, objectives and strategies for working with older adults. Before submitting the plan, AIS gets input from the older adults and persons with disabilities they serve as well as other interested community members. “We look out to engage our partners and try to constantly think ahead,” said Schmeding. “What’s coming, what we need to be aware of and what modifications we need to make to be responsive to our community.” At the La Mesa meeting, residents voiced concerns about several community issues and offered their ideas for improving them.

Several mentioned the difficulty older adults have in doing simple errands such as getting groceries or going to medical appointments. They felt transportation options were adequate in their city, but it’s not always practical to carry large loads of groceries on buses and taking Uber or a taxi to medical appointments can get quite costly. One suggestion was to see if local grocery stores and a transportation provider could team up and provide a grocery shuttle that ran on a regular schedule with a small fee for riders. Housing density and affordability also were high on the list of concerns. Residents wanted better ways to connect with volunteer opportunities and other older adults in their community.

JAMUL — Great news wine lovers... after nearly a decade of careful renovations to the Adobe House, Casi Cielo Winery and Gift Store is now open for Wine tasting at the Vineyard by advanced appointment only on Saturdays from 12-6 pm for the next few months. Eventually the wine tasting days and hours will be expanded to Saturday and Sunday but not for several more months from now. The San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce was on hand with for the ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday, Feb. 20, along with 60 plus energetic new fans, local wine makers and winery owners. Mesmerized guests strolled around the vineyard areas and enjoyed light appetizers and gourmet Fresh Crush Vineyard Jelly over chocolate cheesecake while relaxing and taking in the incredible mountain top views. Five well rounded new release red and white wines were served made by John Keily and Greg Maness of Casi Cielo Winery, a Maness Vineyards LLC. Dr Pj and Kathy did a great job keeping the wine tastings flowing while guests felt right at home in the new tasting room while browsing thru our unique gift store licensed under GregoArt.com Maness Vineyard’s (MV) mountain top estate, fondly known as “Casi Cielo” (Almost Heaven), is located in Jamul, 1200 feet above sea level. It was founded in 1972, their vineyards were first planted in 1978 with Petite Syrah and today you’ll find Mission Criolla, Muscat Canelli, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Grenache, and Mourvedre with assorted table grape varietals. The estate operates, in part, by eco-friendly solar power, nestled adjacent to a pristine 6000 acre nature preserve. This fabulous mountain view retreat is home to dozens of rescued farm animals and wildlife that have found sanctuary on the property. You can make an appointment to enjoy an informative, guided walking tour throughout the vineyards and wine making facility.

EL CAJON — The Foothills Republican Women Federation held a “Meet the Candidates” luncheon and meeting Saturday, Feb. 20 at Junction Steakhouse & Sports Bar in El Cajon. The candidates present were Bob Larivee, a California native and owner of an awardwinning design and build firm. Larivee is running for the U.S. Senate and James D. Veltmeyer, M.D. who is running for the 53rd Congressional District. Veltmeyer has had an outstanding careeer in medicine. He immigrated to California from Ecuador as a young child. Veltmeyer is currently Chief of Family Medicine at Sharp Grossmont Hospital.

urn on the TV next time a NASCAR stock car race is on and get a good look at the coveralls worn by the drivers. They are covered with patches bearing the logos of many and varied companies that sponsor their automotive efforts, from oil and carmaking companies to breweries. Now imagine a normally staid state legislative hearing, where politicians of both major parties today show up in conservative business suits. Those folks could soon look like a stock car racing crew if an initiative now circulating makes the November ballot and passes. The measure, formally called the “Name All Sponsors California Accountability Reform (or NASCAR. Get it?) Initiative,” would require all state legislators to wear the emblems or names of their 10 top donors every time they attend an official function. The measure’s sponsor, Rancho Santa Fe businessman John Cox, takes delight in the idea and has already done some touring around California with 120 life-size photographic cutouts of politicians dressed up as they might have to under his plan. This idea has some similarity to part of the defeated 2006 Proposition 89, an attempt to set up a publicly financed election system that would also have required every privatelyfinanced political ad, whether on television or in newspapers or mailed flyers, to list its three biggest financiers in type as large as the biggest print anywhere else in the ad. That proposition lost, but not because of the donor exposure provision. It went down by a 76-24 percent margin because voters didn’t want to be taxed for the sake of politicians. There’s no tax associated with the NASCAR initiative, which Cox, a former chairman of the Cook County (Chicago) Republican committee, is willing to finance to the tune of $1 million. “The whole idea is to hold the entire corrupt, stupid system up to ridicule,” said Cox, who ran unsuccessfully in Illinois for both Congress and the U.S. Senate before moving to California in 2008. One who appreciates the sentiment behind this is Jamie Court, head of the Consumer Watchdog advocacy group, which sponsored Proposition 89. “This could definitely make politics more racy,” he said. “If this passes, it could turn the statehouse into a nudist colony because no one would want to pin their real owners onto their clothes. We might even discover that the emperors really don’t have any clothes.” There is, you might guess, some question over whether forcing lawmakers to wear signage is constitutional, or might be a violation of their First Amendment free speech rights. Of course, no one forces them to be legislators, any more than stock car race drivers are dragooned into that calling. Cox, for one, would welcome a court challenge on the constitutionality of dictating dress in the state Capitol. “That would be wonderful,” he said. “The real point here isn’t to force anyone to wear anything, but to fix our broken, ridiculous system. It’s a system where people who want things from government pay for and staff the campaigns of the folks who will run that government. Any objective person would call that corrupt.” Cox, however, stops short of calling California more corrupt than his old Chicago stomping ground. “I haven’t lived here long enough to make that comparison,” he said. He’ll need 365,880 valid voter signatures to qualify this idea for the ballot, and Cox is convinced his $1 million commitment will be more than enough to pay for getting it on the ballot. “The petition drive outfit we’ve hired says this is the biggest slam dunk they’ve ever seen,” he said. “They’re having the petition carriers use it as a lead item to make it easier for them to get signatures for other initiatives.” He’s also trying to do much of the petition drive online, the measure providing printable sheets with room for only three signatures, thus making it easier for backers to get a full sheet to send it in. The bottom line: For anyone who wants to afflict the powerful and make lawmakers feel anxious and perhaps a bit threatened, this could be a strong – also amusing – vehicle.

Transient Ischemic Attack . Is a TIA dangerous?

. TIA stands for “transient ischemic attack.” A TIA is an interruption in the flow of blood to a part of your brain. Its symptoms are the same as for a stroke. A TIA lasts anywhere from minutes to many hours. It goes away and leaves no apparent permanent effects. If you have a TIA, your chances of having a stroke are increased nine times. Treat a TIA like an early warning and get to your doctor immediately for a check-up. A stroke, which is also called a “brain attack,” is caused by a blood problem in the brain. An “ischemic stroke” is caused by too little blood in the brain. An “hemorrhagic stroke” is caused by too much blood. About 80 percent of strokes are ischemic strokes; they occur when blood clots or other particles block arteries to your brain. Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel in your brain leaks or ruptures. Fullbrain Service Salon During a stroke, cells are deprived of oxygen and nutrients and begin to die. The earlier a stroke is treated, the better the results. In the USA, stroke is the third-leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer. It is the leading cause of adult disability. The most common stroke symptoms include: sudden numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face, arm or leg — usually on one side of the body; trouble talking or understanding; sudden blurred, double or decreased vision; dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; a sudden headache with a stiff neck, facial pain, pain between the eyes, vomiting or altered consciousness; confusion, or problems with memory, spatial orientation or perception. The following can increase your risk of a stroke: a family history of stroke or TIA, aging, race (blacks are at greater risk), high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, cigarette smoking, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, previous stroke or TIA, heavy alcohol drinking and uncontrolled stress. Your doctor has many diagnostic tools for stroke. Among these are: physical exam, blood tests, carotid ultrasonography to check the carotid arteries in your neck, arteriography to view arteries in your brain, a computerized tomography (CT) scan of the neck and brain, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, among others. Treatments are varied and include drugs to fight clots, and medical procedures to keep blood vessels open. Ask The Healthy Geezer a question at: fred@healthygeezer.com

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Wearable Robotic Exoskeleton May Enable MS Patients to Walk More Efficiently

W

alking with a wearable robotic e x o skeleton may enable people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) to walk more efficiently by reducing the energy and muscle activity needed to walk, according to research presented this week at the Association for Academic Physiatrists Annual Meeting in Sacramento. MS is a demylinating disease of the central nervous system – the brain and spinal cord. The disease is chronic and potentially disabling and has a variety of symptoms, including numbness and weakness in the legs, tremors, lack of coordination or unsteady walking and even paralysis. It is estimated that 2.5 million people worldwide suffer from MS. Once the trappings of science fiction, wearable exoskeletons have now entered healthcare as a rehabilitation tool to increase physical function and quality of life. These suits are designed to facilitate walking in people with neurological conditions, but few studies have been conducted to evaluate the amount of assistance they can provide when walking. Researchers from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), TIRR Memorial Hermann and Texas Women’s University recently studied the feasibility and effectiveness of using an exoskeleton to help people with MS walk. This project is part of a study funded by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society The researchers studied a 33-year-old female with relapsing-remitting MS who had a score of 6.0 on Expanded Disability Status Scale. This scale quantifies disability in MS based on a scale of zero (no disability) to 10 (death due to MS). The participant received 12 training sessions in exoskeleton-assisted walking and was then asked to perform a series of tests at the end of her training: a timed up-andgo (or TUG) test, which mea-

sured the amount of time it took her to go from a sitting to standing position, walk three meters, turn around, return to her chair and sit back down; a 25-foot walking test at both a self-selected and fast pace; and a six-minute walk. For all tests, the researchers assessed the amount of energy expended as well as the muscle activity in both the upper and lower body. The results of these tests were compared to the results of the same tests completed at the end of the study without the exoskeleton. “Our study participant told me when she was in the study, ‘I am looking at the quality of the rest of my life, not quantity of the days I can live,’ explains Shuo-Hsiu “James” Chang; assistant professor at UTHealth; Neurorecovery Research Center at TIRR Memorial Hermann; and lead investigator in the study. “It is a strong message telling us that rehabilitation plays a critical role in helping people with MS to live better quality lives. I believe exoskeleton-assisted training and walking is one of the most effective strategies that can promote quality of life and community reintegration in this population.” During the six-minute walking test, the participant maintained an approximately six percent lower heart rate and required 7.5 percent less oxygen to complete the test in the exoskeleton when compared to walking without it. However, during the 25-foot walking test at a fast speed, the participant’s heart rate was 10 percent higher and oxygen consumption was three percent higher when wearing the exoskeleton. Finally, the researchers noticed all muscles in the lower body — with the exception of the semitendinosus, one of three hamstring muscles — showed less activity during the 25-foot walking test at a self-selected speed and the six-minute walking test when assisted by the exoskeleton. And, similar to energy expended, muscle activity increased during the 25-foot walking test at a fast pace in the exoskeleton. When attempting the TUG test, the

ddean@echerald.com

participant found it difficult to operate the exoskeleton. “To promote walking for people with MS, we need to be creative and develop novel strategies. Wearable exoskeletons offer the feasibility of assisted overground walking and may be effective assistance devices to promote efficient walking, and better quality of life,” says Dr. Chang, who notes the wearable exoskeleton is one of the advanced technologies that could further promote effectiveness of rehabilitation strategies. “We need to conduct more studies - such as larger trials with larger populations (looking at MS, stroke and other diseases and conditions) and effectiveness studies - to perform a systematic investigation and analysis that studies effectiveness of exoskeleton-assisted rehabilitation in MS,” says Dr. Chang. “In our research center, we have another ongoing exoskeleton study that is designed to develop an algorithmic-based evaluation and treatment approach for wearable exoskeleton-assisted rehabilitation that focuses on physiological changes and gait in patients with stroke, spinal cord injuries and MS. We expect the results will help us to understand better how we can utilize exoskeletons and design effective exoskeleton-assisted rehabilitation programs.”

Cuyamaca College’s ‘Paving the Way’ Celebrates African-American Pioneers

EL CAJON –Black History Month celebrations at Cuyamaca College culminate with “Paving the Way,” a Feb. 26 event at the Performing Arts Theatre that melds music, theatre, dance, and poetry in saluting African Americans who were pioneers in their field. The event is set to get under way at 7:30 p.m. and includes professional, semiprofessional, and local novice actors performing a number of excerpts from playwrights and poets throughout the night. Among the pioneers being highlighted will be President Barack Obama, civil rights icon Rosa Parks, abolitionist Harriet Tubman and choreographer and activist Alvin Ailey. “Paving the Way” is directed by brother-sister team Robert Chambers and Sakeenah Gallardo. Chambers is a Cuyamaca College alum and former professional dancer with an extensive background with the arts and choreography projects

who for eight years taught theater through the Cuyamaca College Community Learning division. Gallardo is a Grossmont College graduate who now teaches communications at both Cuyamaca and San Diego Mesa colleges. “We were prompted to create such an event because there was a need to highlight the accomplishments of AfricanAmericans,” said Gallardo. “We wanted to show how Cuyamaca College was a huge supporter of cultural enrichment for all ethnicities. My brother and I have chosen to highlight African-Americans who have paved ways in the areas of the civil rights, arts, politics and the sciences. We will be acknowledging the achievements and sacrifices made by the men and women who have paved the way for present and future AfricanAmericans.” Cost is $8; $5 for students and seniors. Proceeds will benefit FANCY (Focused and Naturally Confident Youth), a

local organization working to empower high school girls and foster youth. Black History Month, also known as National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by African-Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African-Americans. Black History Month at Cuyamaca College included a display on the first and second floors of the campus library; a screening of the movie, ‘Selma,’ that was followed by a discussion; a workshop by Hurricane Katrina survivor Dr. Tanis Starck, assistant dean of special projects at San Diego State University’s School of Education; and the introduction of the Black Student Union. Cuyamaca College is at 900 Rancho San Diego Parkway in Rancho San Diego.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE

with Pastor Drew

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah

G

PART XLVII

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 look at some questions that were asked of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of Mark 12:1317 “Then they sent to Him some of the Pharisees and the Herodians, to catch Him in His words. When they had come, they said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are true, and care about no one; for You do not regard the person of men, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not? Shall we pay, or shall we not pay?” But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, “Why do you test Me? Bring Me a denarius that I may see it.” So they brought it. And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” They said to Him, “Caesar’s.” And Jesus answered and said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they marveled at Him.” Once again we see the disingenuousness of the religious leaders, they cared nothing for the truth, they only wanted to trap Jesus in His words so that they may have occasion to accuse Him before the Roman authorities. The truth of Jesus was a threat to the corrupt religious leaders for it threatened to expose their greed; jealousy; covetousness. There are religious leaders today that exemplify these same character traits as they reject the truth of God’s Word and seek to make merchandise of the people. Jesus’ response to these religious hypocrites is both corrective and instructive showing great wisdom. As He asks for a coin, He asks whose image is on the coin; as they respond that it is Caesar’s, Jesus tells them to then give to Caesar that which is Caesar’s. Then with the understanding that man bears the image of his Creator, we should then give to God that which is His. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth and instructed them in a similar way, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” And as he wrote to the Christians at Rome he said, Romans 12:1-2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” This wisdom that Jesus exemplifies is found in His Word and is available to those who ask of Him for it by faith. Psalms 119:97-100 “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.” James 1:5-8 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” Next week, we will look at some other questions these religious leaders posed to Jesus and how He answered them.

Local Distillery Now Sells Spirits on Site

SANTEE — California State Assemblyman Brian Jones (Inset, below, right) of the 71st District, co-author of AB-1295, purchased the first bottle available for direct sale of Twisted Manzanita’s award winning Rebellious Rye Whiskey Friday, Feb. 19 at Twisted Manzanita Spirits Tasting Room in Santee. As of Jan. 1, new legislation (AB-1295) allows craft distilleries to sell individual bottles of craft spirits from tasting rooms. Prior the passing of AB-1295 the public could only sample distilled spirits at a tasting room but could not purchase bottles directly from a distiller. Selling directly to the public allows craft distillers the freedom to produce smaller quantities so less capital is needed for the equipment and facility necessary to satisfy the product demands of third party distributors. With less startup capital needed to enter the industry, Craft distilling is poised to become the next Craft Boom in San Diego. Twisted Manzanita Spirits is one of the first distilleries in the state to be approved for this new license.

City of La Mesa Awarded $1.9 Million Grant

LA MESA — The City of La Mesa was recently approved for a $1,919,000 grant through the California Transportation Commission (CTC) Active Transportation Program (ATP) to fund pedestrian and bicyclist safety enhancements in west La Mesa. The grant will provide improved connectivity to parks, local schools and access to the future Boys and Girls Club (Brady Family Clubhouse). Improvements will include opening and extending Junior High Drive to Lowell Street and a midblock crossing with pedestrian rapid flashing beacons and in-pavement flashers connecting La Mesa Arts Academy to Helix Charter High School. Improved access will be provided to Windsor Hills Community Church located next to the future Boys and Girls Club site. Additionally, new sidewalks, bulb outs, ADA ramps, high visibility crosswalks, bike racks, pedestrian lighting, 1.3 miles of new bicycle lanes on University Avenue, and 3.5 miles of improved bicycle routes with sharrow markings will be installed. “Sharrows” (shared roadway bicycle markings) help remind motorists to share the road with bicyclists. The project is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2016 and complete in 2019. This $1.9 million grant coincides with fundraising campaign by the Boys & Girls Club of East County Foundation to fund the construction of a new 25,000 square facility on the campus of La Mesa Arts Academy in the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District. The future Brady Family Clubhouse will feature a learning center, computer lab, crafts room, outdoor playground, kitchen, multipurpose room and the Bill Walton Gymnasium, named after NBA Hall of Famer. The Clubhouse will provide a safe haven for children 5-18 every day after school and during the summer months. This effort is part of an ongoing emphasis by the City of La Mesa to provide upgrades in West La Mesa. Most recently SDG&E undergrounded the utility poles on Normal Avenue.
