So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Will PUC Cave to Yet Another Big, Brazen Utility?


o understand the brazen quality of the latest rate increase application from California’s third-largest electric utility, it’s necessary to step back in time, to the scene when wildfires raged across some of the prettiest parts of San Diego County in 2007. Those fires would eventually kill 13 persons, even more than the notorious natural gas pipeline explosion that came about three years later in San Bruno, which ever since has plagued the state’s largest utility, Pacific Gas & Electric. Physical damage from the fire was far more widespread. Just after noon on Oct. 21, 2007, arcing power lines owned by San Diego Gas & Electric Co. were whipped by dry winds of up to 100 mph, eventually starting a small fire near Ramona, in eastern San Diego County. Known as the Witch Creek fire, by 4 a.m. the next day, this blaze had grown exponentially and reached the San Diego city limits. It combined with two other fires, eventually burning down whole neighborhoods – a total of more than 1,125 residences. More than 197,000 acres burned, but not in rural country like some of last fall’s big fires. This was high-priced residential real estate. Evacuations were ordered over the almost three weeks the blaze burned, in cities from Oceanside and Encinitas, Del Mar Heights and Carmel Valley, Rancho Santa Fe and the heavily afflicted Rancho Bernardo. And there were more. These eventually involved about half a million people, the largest evacuation in California history. Now fast forward to SDG&E’s newest rate increase application. Following the examples of PG&E and Southern California Edison, SDG&E asks the state Public Utilities Commission to have its customers pay 90 percent of its approximately $380 million in fire-related expenses. This would amount to about $1.67 per month per customer. No talk here about the company compensating affected customers for their own fire-related costs, as one might think fair. The case creates a major test for the PUC, whose new president, Michael Picker, has promised more transparency and adherence to rules preventing private contacts between commissioners, their staff and utility executives during rate cases. Such contacts have long been common, despite violating many rules and regulations. The 2007 fire, caused primarily by the combination of SDG&E equipment and severe weather conditions, spurred about $4 billion in claims, many not covered by insurance. But SDG&E, obligated to serve fire-prone areas and pay damages linked to power line problems whether or not negligence was involved, says having customers pay 90 percent of its costs is consistent with another state decision on a hazardous waste cleanup. This does not change the fact that asking customers – many of them victims of the fire – to pay the vast bulk of the bills is like someone helping cause a car accident that injures another party and then expecting that person to pay most of the damage expense. This would never fly in a private negotiation, but we are talking about a state commission with decades of experience favoring utility companies over their customers. SDG&E doesn’t say this, but it has plainly seen that Southern California Edison won a deal having customers foot about 70 percent of expenses linked to the shutdown of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, caused mostly by an Edison blunder. It has seen PG&E get sweetheart terms on the penalties assessed against it for San Bruno. And SDG&E has seen the thus-far lenient treatment the PUC has given the Southern California Gas Co. (with which it shares a parent company – Sempra Energy) in the massive ongoing methane gas leak near Porter Ranch in Los Angeles. If Picker is serious about changing the culture of the commission, as he claimed in his state Senate confirmation hearings, the SDG&E rate case is a big chance to make a statement. The bottom line: If SDG&E ends up paying only about 10 percent of its expenses from a hugely traumatic fire caused in large part by its equipment, the PUC will be saying it’s business as usual. The companies ask for money and the commission reaches for the wallets of customers. Only if the proposal is cut by much more than half will there be any reason to think there’s been any change at this steadfastly corrupt commission.

The Healthy Geezer with Fred Cietti Going Under the Knife Q A

. What is the most common type of cosmetic surgery?

. I was surprised by the answer to this question. I guessed facelift and was wrong. My wife, Gale, answered correctly without hesitation. Breast augmentation is the leader. She talks to more women, I guess. Women outnumber men by about nineone for undergoing cosmetic surgery. According to 2014 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the largest organization of board-certified plastic surgeons, these are the top five cosmetic surgical procedures with the number of annual procedures:

Breast augmentation (286,000)

Breast augmentation procedures are increasing and so are the number of silicone implants being used. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned silicone implants in 1992, after some serious problems were reported. In 2006, the FDA allowed the reintroduction of plastic gel implants More than half of the implants now are silicone; the rest are made of sterile salt water. In the procedure, the implants are placed beneath either the breast tissue or chest muscles.

Nose reshaping (217,000)

Rhinoplasty, or as it commonly known, “the nose job,” is popular among all age groups. According to one study, about a third of patients contemplating a nose job could be suffering from a mental illness in which they can’t stop thinking about an imagined or minor flaw in their appearance.

Liposuction (211,000)

Some people just can’t process fat, even with vigorous exercise and spartan diets. Liposuction is a potential solution, especially if they’re only slightly overweight and have good skin. During liposuction, fat cells are actually liquefied by injection or ultrasound and then removed. The removal of fat cells is permanent. However, it doesn’t prevent the addition of new fat cells.

Full Service Salon

Eyelid surgery (207,000)

Skin loses its natural elasticity as we age. However, some people have eyelid problems that are genetic. Eyelid reshaping (blepharoplasty) is performed by plastic surgeons on both the eyelids immediately above and below the eyes, and excess tissue underneath the eyes, too. In some cases, an eyelid lift is required to help improve a patient’s eyesight.

Facelift (128,000)

Drooping facial skin is a common problem with aging. During a facelift (rhytidectomy), facial soft tissues are lifted, excess skin is removed and skin is draped back. A neck lift (platysmaplasty) is often done with a facelift. A facelift isn’t a cure-all for wrinkles or sun damage. This can be corrected with a a skin-resurfacing procedure. The ASPS statistics show that some procedures are consistently popular with certain age groups. Nose reshaping is widespread among teenagers. The shape and structure of your nose changes the least during your lifetime. Youngsters undergo rhinoplasty to get a new start. The procedure is common around the time of of high school graduation. Breast augmentation is a popular procedure for those in their 20s, when breasts are usually fully formed. The ASPS says that this is a time when image is very important to women, so they seek larger breasts in order to boost their self-confidence and balance the proportions of their new adult figures. Liposuction is popular for men and women after they are in their 30s, when their metabolism slows and they see a change in the way their bodies deposit fat. The results of aging begin to show in our 40s. Patients between the ages of 40-54 are likely to undergo an eyelid and/or brow lifting surgery. The facelift is an extremely popular procedure for those 55 and older. At this point, there are multiple parts of the face that need rejuvenating.

Living with MS with Dee Dean Treadmill Exercise Benefits Multiple Sclerosis Sufferers


rian M. Sandroff from the Kessler Foundation and Robert W. Mot from the University of Illinois presented the results of a study on the effects of exercise in patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) recently at the Americas Committee for the Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) Forum 2016 in New Orleans. The presentation is titled “Acute effects of treadmill walking exercise on inhibitory control in MS: Do exercise intensity and thermosensitivity matter?” and is part of Session 1, “Emerging Concept in MS.” Exercise training represents a promising approach for managing cognitive impairment in patients with MS. Preliminary evidence showed that treadmill walking might be the exercise that exerts the greatest beneficial effects on inhibitory control (the ability to focus on relevant stimuli and ignore irrelevant ones) in fully-ambulatory patients with MS. The research team first compared the acute effects of light, moderate, and vigorous intensity treadmill walking (TMW) exercise on inhibitory control (IC) in 24 MS patients (study I). The patients completed four experimental conditions (20 minutes of light, moderate, and vigorous intensity TMW exer-

cise, and quiet rest) in a randomized, counterbalanced order. IC was assessed before and after each condition through a cognitive test (the modified flanker task). Then, to assess whether an increase in core body temperature would have a negative impact on the potential benefits of TMW exercise on IC, the researchers examined the core body temperature during vigorous TMW exercise in 14 thermosensitive MS patients (study II). The patients completed two experimental conditions (20 minutes of vigorous TMW exercise and 20 minutes of quiet rest). Using a modified flanker task, the researchers assessed the patient’s core body temperature throughout both conditions. IC was evaluated before and after each condition. In study I, the results revealed that MS patients had an IC improvement in all three intensities of TMW exercise compared with quiet rest, and that the improvement was similar in magnitude. Results from study II showed improvements in IC for vigorous exercise compared with quiet rest, despite core body temperature being significantly elevated (approximately 0.6°C) after vigorous exercise in thermosensitive MS patients. Based on the results, the researchers noted that light, moderate, and vigorous inten-


sity treadmill walking might be beneficial for inhibitory control in MS patients. The findings also suggest that core body temperature does not seem to invalidate the beneficial effects of walking on a treadmill on IC in MS patients. “This represents the next step in delineating the optimal exercise stimuli for improving cognition in fully-ambulatory persons with MS, and supports the feasibility of chronic TMW exercise training for improving IC in thermosensitive persons with MS,” concluded the research team in their ACTRIMS’ abstract.

Monarch Stars Luncheon Ceremony By Trenton Shannon

For The East County Herald EL CAJON — Every month at Monte Vista High School, each department nominates one hardworking and dedicated student for their outstanding academic and social performances. These great students are celebrated at the monthly Monarch Stars event; This luncheon ceremony is during the school lunch break where the faculty provides food, refreshments, and desserts to reward the students for their successes and hard work in their classes. To be nominated, students must show exceptional commitment, determination and talent in order to be recognized for this high achievement award. For the month of February, one of the hardworking students awarded the Monarch Star is freshman Travis Kulhanek. Kulhanek was nominated by Ms. Lara and Ms. McAloney for his work ethic and commitment to the Mathematics Department. Since the start of his high school career, Kulhanek already has high hopes in becoming an engineer or mathematician after completion of his schooling. When asked how he felt after being nominated, Kulhanek responded, “I’m really honored and humbled to be a Monarch Star. I really like math and that’s what I got nominated for so it’s

February Monarch Stars at Monte Vista High. really exciting for me.” The Monarch Star Award has been a long lasting tradition. With this reward comes an increase of self-appreciation and motivation among the students. State Senator Joel Anderson, who provided Senate Certificates of Recognition to Kulhanek and the other recipients of Monarch Star Awards, remarked, “The Monarch Star Awards program is a wonderful way to provide encouragement to students who are on the right path, and show others that hard work is rewarded. It’s an honor to recognize Travis and his fellow Monarch Stars for their accomplishments, and I am grateful to principal Montesanto for his leadership at Monte Vista and for helping his students thrive.”

This award is meant for the students showing great improvements, strong efforts to help other students, and an overall great behavior. Principal Randy Montesanto has a strong belief that the Monarch Star is beneficial to all students at Monte Vista High School. Principal Montesanto shared, “I believe it creates a positive culture on campus where students feel like they are acknowledged and recognized for positive behavior.” He continued, “It creates a more positive culture on campus and students feel that we are here to support them.” Montesanto and his team can easily spot the positive impact this recognition has on the students and will continue to award them for as long as he sees a great outcome.

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah



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 more questions that were asked of Jesus by the religious hypocrites as recorded in the Gospel of Mark 12:1827 “Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise. And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also. In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven. And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.” Here is another attempt by a religious group known as the Sadducees to trick Jesus with a question about resurrection and marriage. It is quite ironic that they would ask these questions for this sect known as the Sadducees did not believe in the afterlife, the resurrection, angles, and a number of other things. I find the response of the Lord to be tremendous for many reasons, one reason especially because His answer points out the cause of not only their foolishness but of many others. Look at Jesus’ response, “You do err because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.” Not knowing the Word of God or the power of God is what causes many to err and suffer needlessly. Let me cite just a few examples. Galatians 6:7-8 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” There are many within and outside of the church that are ignorant of this truth; they think they can live anyway they like with little to no consequences; they falsely think that Jesus is all loving, (which He is) but that does not give the Christian a license to sin at will and not suffer the consequences of sin. Nature itself shows us that if one sows weed seeds in their garden they will not get roses or other desirable results. Another truth of God’s Word declares: 1Corinthians 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” This was written to those in Corinth that “thought” they were Christians because they had gone through the motions of becoming a Christian without repenting of their sin and like many today in the church are deceived into thinking that they are going to Heaven when they really are not.

EAST COUNTY BIZwith Rick Griffin La Mesa Chamber Honors Local Heroes

The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce held its eighth annual “Salute to Local Heroes” dinner, Wednesday, Feb. 24 at the Town and Country Resort Hotel. The event included installation of board members, dinner, silent auction and recognition of seven local heroes from law enforcement, fire district, paramedic field and retired senior volunteer patrol. Honored at the event were: Jon Alva and Robert Ivery, paramedics, American Medical Response; Capt. Dave Hardenburger, Heartland Fire and Rescue; Detective Bucky Wright and Master Officer Lillie Chase, La Mesa Police Department (LMPD); Nonie Beach and Ray Rendina, La Mesa Police Department Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol (RSVP). Alva, a paramedic for the past three years, recently responded to a critically-injured motorcyclist who had hit the back of a semi-truck at a high rate of speed. Alva’s communication and clinical skills kept the patient alive. Ivery, a paramedic for more than 30 years, also serves as a training officer and instructor in local paramedic training programs. Hardenburger responded to a call about an 18-month-old child who was not breathing and without a pulse. Hardenburger pulled out the grape causing the choking and helped the child regain a pulse. Wright, who works in the LMPD Special Investigations Unit, helped solve a series of Ford Ranger vehicle burglaries and worked with the U.S. Marshals to arrest a felony suspect who had been on the run for eight months. Chase rescued a 17-year-old suicidal female who was ready to jump off a bridge over Grossmont Center Drive. Beach has volunteered more than 4,000 hours since joining RSVP in November 1998. Rendina has volunteered more than 5,100 hours since joining RSVP in February 1998.

Core Course in SDSU’s CareerEnhancing Business of Wine Program


he California wine business continues to be lucrative. California makes 90 percent of all U.S. wine – even though there are now wineries in all 50 states – and is the world’s fourth leading wine producer after Italy, Spain, and France, according to the Wine Institute. That’s why now is a perfect time to prepare for success in this booming industry by taking the Business of Wine professional certificate program through San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies. The comprehensive courses are geared for professionals and entrepreneurs in the wine, food, and hospitality fields who want to quickly expand their knowledge of industry topics; plus anyone interested in moving into wine or hospitality careers, and wine enthusiasts who desire a professional-level education. The program’s recommended first class, Exploring Wine, is scheduled Mondays, March 28-May 2, 6-9 pm. The course takes students on a journey around the world of wine covering topics such as history, grape varietals, viticulture, language and labeling, and an introduction to food and wine pairing. To earn a Business of Wine certificate, nine courses must be completed within two years. In addition to Exploring Wine, core courses are Wine Making Behind the Scenes, Business Opportunities in the Wine Industry, and Dynamic Wine and Food Pairing. Also required are five electives, including three intensive courses. “I now have a much greater understanding of not only wine itself but of the wine industry as a whole,” said program graduate Ben Probe, server, certified cicerone ® and sommelier. “Anyone interested in moving forward in the restaurant industry or even just for personal enrichment will gain valuable lessons and knowledge from the Business of Wine program.” “The biggest strength of the program was the breadth of the courses,” said program graduate Grant Tondro, co-owner of The Barrel Room, Urge GastroPub, and Brothers Provisions. “If someone like me who’s already an industry professional has gaps to fill, there’s a course for them. The program is absolutely worth it and you can get out of it as much as you put into it.” Students must be at least 21 years of age. For more information, email wine@sdsu.edu, visit neverstoplearning.net/wine, or call (619) 594-1138. SDSU’s College of Extended Studies reaches out to San Diego, the nation, and the world with a wide variety of lifelong learning opportunities, and more than 50 certificate programs for career advancement. Topics range from contract management, construction, and craft beer, to grant writing, marketing, and human resources. And many programs are available online.

Sharp Grossmont Hospital to open new pharmacy and lab

An important milestone was recently celebrated in the progress of the taxpayer-funded construction of a new Heart and Vascular (H&V) Center at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa. While the three-story, 71,000-square-foot H&V building is scheduled for final completion later this year, construction was recently completed of the first phase of the project, which was completion of new pharmacy and clinical testing laboratory on Level A, which is set to open in March to begin serving patients. A ribbon-cutting dedication ceremony for the pharmacy and lab was held on Wednesday, Feb. 24. The Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of ComThe H&V Center’s new 6,700-square-foot pharmacy

will replace the hospital’s existing 3,100-square-foot pharmacy, said Dr. Kenneth Schell, hospital pharmacy director. The previous pharmacy space will be used for other hospital purposes, including pathology work consisting of laboratory examination of body tissue samples for diagnostic or forensic purposes. “The last upgrade to the existing pharmacy was in 1997, so we’re overdue and looking forward to serving patients with the most modern equipment and technology and the latest design that will improve efficiency and production,” Schell said. “Our new pharmacy will help us increase our current capacity of 90,000 medication orders a month. Our workload has been increasing by several hundred orders every month for the past several years.” Schell said the new pharmacy also will feature a retail operation so that all patients at their discharge from the hospital can get prescriptions filled at the hospital instead of an outside retail store. He also said the new pharmacy will provide extra space for research studies for patients needing investigational drug therapies. In addition, the new 13,000-square-foot laboratory will replace the hospital’s existing 10,000-square-foot laboratory, said Chris Crawford, hospital laboratory director. However, blood draws will continue at the existing lab area, she said. “The new lab will give us a smoother workflow resulting in greater capacity and a quicker turnaround time for specimen examination and processing,” Crawford said. “We also will have a Clinical Resource Room available for ongoing training sessions, validation of new instrument technology and provide a place for student reference information.” Crawford said new large refrigerator equipment with a capacity of 26,000 test tubes, which will permit the hospital to double the storage time of most specimens. “We are also excited about the new automation, robotics and auto-verification technology that will help our efficiency at inventory management,” she said.
