Congressman Hunter Greets President Trump Home of Guiding Hands Advocates for Equitable Pay for Caregivers to View Prototypes for New Border Wall

OTAY MESA — Former Congressman Duncan L. Hunter (above left) with his son and Congressman Duncan D. Hunter (right) with California Border Patrol (CBP) awaiting arrival of President Donald Trump to view the prototypes of the new wall. “Walls work and are vital to the integrity of the nation.” That was the message President Donald Trump delivered to the public after reviewing U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s wall prototypes on the border in Otay Mesa, Tuesday, March 13. “If you don’t have a wall system, we’re not going to have a country,” said President Trump as he toured the eight, 30-foot high border wall prototypes and mock-ups. Following construction of eight border wall prototypes, CBP tested, assessed and evaluated the features and attributes of each prototype to identify which of them most effectively impede and deny illegal crossings. The assessment and evaluation included testing the eight wall prototypes, input from Border Patrol agents and an engineering analysis. The President was joined by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, CBP Acting Commissioner Kevin McAleenan, Acting U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost and San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott. President Trump asked Scott, a veteran agent who was in the same area more than 25 years ago, what was the situation before the existing walls were constructed. “There was effectively no border in San Diego,” said Scott. “It was a chaotic situation,” adding the current fence, made of scrap metal, has at least helped in deterrence. “It changed our environment. We decreased illegal cross-border traffic by 95 percent.” President Trump said the new wall will improve the Border Patrol’s ability to

EL CAJON — In 1987, President Ronald Reagan made a public proclamation that the month of March should be recognized as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month to “increase public awareness of the needs and potential of Americans with developmental disabilities. Over the ensuing 31 years much has changed. The theme for Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month 2018 is, “See Me for Me!” to Home of Guiding Hands (HGH), this is its everyday mission. Since its inception in 1961, HGH has provided benchmark programming and housing for men, women, and children with developmental disabilities. As the organization celebrates its mission and the people it serves, it has also become engaged in the issue of how the remarkable individuals who become caretakers for the developmentally disabled are classified under California State Law. HGH has evolved from a 14-acre campus in Lakeside, to 31 four-to-six person homes and numerous community based services throughout San Diego County and Imperial Valley. It has become one of the largest providers of supports and services in San Diego and Imperial Counties, serving more than 2,500 people with developmental disabilities. “Currently, our staff who support our clients are classified as entry level workers by the state,” said Mark Klaus, President and CEO of HGH. “The wage issue is significant to us, as we witness the depth and breadth of their skill and dedication required every day to maximize the experience of all who come to us. We believe our direct care staff are grossly underpaid and undervalued for the work that they do.” The minimum wage in San Diego is $11.50 an hour. The State minimum is $11.00. The State has taken the position that it will only reimburse employees at the rate of $11.00, despite local wage ordinances, and that no rate adjustments are needed. “Those of us in the developmental disabilities arena find this position by the state to be both disheartening and unacceptable,” said Klaus. “The remarkable staff at HGH—Direct Support Professionals—are the front-line people who allow HGH and others like us to truly have a positive impact on the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. They allow us to fulfill our mission… To Improve The Lives Of Those We Serve!” He added, “We don’t see ourselves as caregivers. Rather, we are partners, facilitators, community members and teachers. For 50 years, we have used best practices in our service provision to persons with developmental disabilities thereby maximizing their independence, productivity and quality of life.” Klaus noted that the low reimbursement of caregivers has a dramatic impact on how agencies like HGH struggle to make ends meet. “Ninety percent of providers are experiencing increased labor costs; 46 percent of providers have closed, or downsized programs and 60 percent are considering closing or downsizing programs. These are only a few of the challenges faced by organizations like HGH.” Recently, Klaus met with Jason Weisz, Senior Field Representative for State Senator Toni Atkins. Klaus was joined at this meeting by the CEOs of the San Diego Regional Center, ARC of California, United Cerebral Palsy San Diego and Employment and Community Options. “Together we employ more than 3,300 staff in San Diego County and support a significantly high percentage of the more than 27,000 children, adolescents and adults with developmental disabilities that receive services in San Diego and Imperial Counties,” said Klaus. “We are united in our belief that caregivers for individuals with development disabilities have highly professional skill sets and expertise, and deserve to be compensated accordingly.” He added, “The time has come to take action on behalf of our committed, well-trained and dedicated staff. Our next step is to present the powerful evidence to the State, and work together to generate legislative support that makes sense for our caregivers, and ensures organizations like ours continue to provide optimum service to the individuals and families we care about so much.”

secure the border even further. “When we put up the real wall, we’ll stop 99 percent, maybe more than that.” Scott added the current barrier has also helped economic development on both sides of the border. “They reestablished law and order in San Diego when they put up a wall,” said President Trump. The President and Secretary Nielsen expressed their appreciation for what CBP and U.S. Immigration and Customs

Enforcement have done in the area. “CBP and ICE put their lives on the lines every day to protect our country,” said Secretary Nielsen. “For that, I’m forever grateful. We will build this wall.” “I want to thank ICE and the Border Patrol agents for their incredible work,” said President Trump. “It’s a dangerous job; it’s a tough job. We’ve cut down on border crossing because of what the Border Patrol has done.”

EL CAJON — San Diego City College in partnership with General Dynamics NAASCO and Grossmont Union High School District, held a check ceremony at El Cajon Valley High School, Friday, March 9. The $115,000 donation will help fund their growing welding program. This program will help create more opportunities for graduates to obtain high-demand, high-paying jobs.

Your Congress In The News with Congressman Duncan D. Hunter President Trump Discusses Qualcomm with Congressman Hunter During San Diego Visit OTAY MESA — President Donald Trump discussed his decision to block a hostile takeover by a foreignowned company of San Diego-based Qualcomm with Congressman Duncan Hunter (CA-50) Tuesday, March 13 as they inspected wall prototypes on the U.S.-Mexico international border. Congressman Hunter raised national security concerns and outlined the harmful effects to the San Diego job market if the takeover were allowed to take place in separate letters to the President and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis. “I got your letter on Qualcomm,” was the first thing the President said to me yesterday when I met him at the border,” said Congressman Hunter. “I thanked the President and his Chief of Staff, General John Kelly, for their leadership on the issue. The President indicated to me that it was important to him not to allow China to obtain Qual-

comm technology.” Utilizing an executive order on Monday, President Trump blocked a bid by Broadcom, a Singapore corporation with extensive ties to China, from acquiring Qualcomm. In both of his letters, Congressman Hunter equated the vital resource of Qualcomm’s communication and technological development to the steel industry during WWII. “Along with Qualcomm, we obviously discussed border security as a whole,” said Congressman Hunter. “I shared with President Trump and Gen. Kelly that the real existential threat continued to be the detonation of a nuclear device delivered in a cargo container to any of our ports or inland waterways. We need to secure the border and the wall must be built. The fact remains, however, that only one percent of the millions of cargo containers currently coming into the U.S. are adequately inspected for nuclear material or other weapons of

mass destruction. I intend to work with the President on this issue.” Hunter, R-Alpine, is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He is the first Marine combat veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to be elected to Congress. He represents California’s 50th Congressional District consisting of East and Northern County San Diego.

ntonio Villaraigosa reads the polls, both his own campaign’s internal surveys and the public ones reported frequently via newspapers and television. These days, they make him feel good. “I’m on the ascendandcy,” the former Los Angeles mayor and onetime state Assembly speaker smiles when asked to assess how his campaign is doing. Yes, he’s still in second place in every poll reported so far, but his numbers look far better than they did early last year, when he began his first statewide campaign. When he entered, Villaraigosa drew just 6 percent in the first poll on the race, conducted by the Public Policy Institute of California. In that outfit’s most recent survey and one from the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies, he was up to 21percent. By comparison, early leader Gavin Newsom, the lieutenant governor and ex-mayor of San Francisco, is down from his initial 31 percent to 23 percent. Newsom says he’s not interested in polls; Villaraigosa is. “I talk more about middle class jobs,” Villaraigosa said in an interview in a Los Angeles restaurant. “I talk about building things. We are doing extremely well in Southern California – Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, San Diego and Imperial counties.” Villaraigosa believes an 18-month “listening tour” he took around most parts of California has given him an important edge. “I saw that people are interested in economic prosperity,” he said. “I got a sense for what most people here want. Many of them feel the economy is not working for them. They are doing all the right things, punching all the right boxes, but they need help from the state to grow middle class jobs.” Contrasting his record with that of Newsom, with whom every poll indicates he’s likely to be matched in a two-Democrat November runoff election, Villaraigosa doesn’t actually say this race could pit his practicality against the idealism that saw Newsom pioneer same-sex marriage and universal health care in San Francisco. But it seems like things might go that way. “For me, this isn’t about any contrasts between me and (outgoing Gov.) Jerry Brown or Newsom,” Villaraigosa said, “It’s about me and my sense of California. I met a lot of really good, hardworking people on my tour and it gave me a sense that we’ve got to build again. We need to fix our roads and highways, maybe build more. We need to fix our schools because so many of them are crumbling. And I am for high speed rail.” Villaraigosa recognizes that he might not seem quite as “progressive” as Newsom, one reason he got only 9 percent support in the spring state Democratic Party convention, dominated by the party’s left wing. But he says his record of building and repairing schools, renewing the Los Angeles airport and hiring 1,000 more police during his eight years as mayor might resonate among moderate Democrats and with the 25 percent of state voters who are registered as Republicans. Add that to his strong Latino support. “We all have to make choices, and that might be what Republicans face here,” he said. “There’s a sense that the two of us (he and Newsom) may be in the runoff and if so, people will have to decide if I’ll do what I say. The way to tell is to look at what I did as mayor of the largest city in the state, which is also the richest city and the poorest city and the most diverse city. Violent crime dropped 49 percent while I was mayor, homicides 40 percent. One in three Los Angeles schools were classed as failing when I came in; that went down to one in 10. We built three light rail lines and two busways. And we were the No. 1 city in reducing carbon emissions.” Like Newsom, Villaraigosa has been questioned about his admitted marital indiscretions, and like Newsom, he’s expressed regrets. But he says that hasn’t been an issue for most people. “I’ve only been asked about it in debates, never at a campaign event,” he said. Listening to Villaraigosa, then, you get the feeling he thinks this campaign will be about issues more than personalities. He might be right.

How Common is Erectile Disfunction?

Q

.

A

Anyone watching male-oriented TV programs would get the impression that erectile dysfunction is rampant. How common is it?

. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is very common. Depending upon how you define ED, there are 15 million to 30 million men who have it. ED ranges from complete impotence to unsatisfactory performance. But it doesn’t have to be a part of getting older. As you age, you may need more stimulation and more time, but older men should still be able to get an erection and enjoy sex. The incidence of ED increases with age. Between 15 and 25 percent of 65-year-old men experience this problem. In older men, ED usually has a physical cause, such as a drug side effect, disease or injury. Anything that damages the nerves or impairs blood flow in the penis can cause ED. The following are some leading causes of erectile dysfunction: diabetes, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), prostate surgery, hormone imbalance, alcohol and drug abuse. And, of course, there are your emotions. It should be no surprise that, if you’re having a relationship problem with your sex partner, you can suffer from ED. Here are some other psychological influences: anxiety over a previous failure, everyday stress, depression, and feeling unattractive to your partner. If you’re suffering from ED, you should see your doctor for a discussion and physical exam. Monitoring erections that occur during sleep can help the diagnosis. Healthy men have involuntary erections during sleep. If nocturnal erections do not occur, then ED is likely to have a physical rather than psychological cause. Tests of nocturnal erections are not completely reliable, however. The cause of the ED will determine the treatment. Some ED medicines are injected into the penis. Other medicines are taken orally. In addition to medicines, there are vacuum- pump devices and surgery. Millions of men have benefited from three drugs that treat ED. These three, which are advertised endlessly, are Viagra, Levitra and Cialis. All of them increase blood flow to the penis, which produces an erection. Viagra, Levitra and Cialis improve the response to sexual stimulation, but they do not trigger an automatic erection as injections do. Oral testosterone can reduce ED in some men with low levels of natural testosterone, but it is often ineffective and may cause liver damage. Nitroglycerin, a muscle relaxant, can sometimes enhance erection when rubbed on the penis. Research on drugs for treating ED is expanding rapidly. If you have ED, you should ask your doctor about the latest advances.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Shared Molecular Signatures Indicate the Susceptibility of Endometriosis to MS

R

esearchers have found a large number of molecular links that help explain the increased risk of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in women with endometriosis. Most of these shared molecular alterations are related to the immune response. Those findings come from the study, “Identification of Shared Molecular Signatures Indicate the Susceptibility of Endometriosis to Multiple Sclerosis,“ which was published recently in the journal Frontiers in Genetics. Immunological factors have a key contribution in the development of endometriosis. A specific immune cell type called macrophage has a wellknown role in the onset and progression of the disease. Instead of removing the endometrial cells, activated macrophages promote their repair and survival, which leads to a sustained presence of displaced endometrial tissue. Research has shown that women with endometriosis are more susceptible to MS. However, there is still limited evidence explaining the molecular, immunological or defense mechanisms shared by these two diseases. Similar to endometriosis,

macrophages also play an essential role in the development of MS. Both diseases show increased ratio of inflammatory Th1 cells versus antiinflammatory Th2, as well as a prominent role of interferongamma, a pro-inflammatory type of molecule. Evaluation of common molecular pathways and their components, along with the underlying genes, may help clarify the association between endometriosis and MS, the researchers hypothesized. Their study intended to discover commonly dysregulated genes and pathways in the two diseases. Investigators performed a meta-analysis — a type of statistical analysis combining data from multiple studies — using gene expression data from studies of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in endometriosis and MS, with data from patients and healthy controls. Results showed a total of 711 and 1,516 DEGs in endometriosis and MS, respectively, with 129 shared between the two diseases. Detailed analysis of shared gene expression signatures showed six interaction networks or crosstalks commonly dysregulated in the pathways of endometriosis and MS, mostly associated with immune responses. “This result suggested the probable associations of these two diseases through overlapping

protein interactions,” the researchers wrote. They found that PTPN1, ERBB3, and CDH1 were the main genes associated with disease-related genes in both endometriosis and MS. “The findings from this study increase our understanding of the molecular mechanisms affecting both [endometriosis] and MS,” the investigators wrote. The common molecular signatures can be explored as therapeutic targets and disease biomarkers for simultaneous treatment of both diseases, they said.

EVERYDAY LIFE

A Biblical Perspective on Current Events

G

PART II

reetings beloved of the Lord, this week we will continue our temporary departure from our series on the Promises of God to address recent current events and address them from a Biblical perspective. Whether it is the ongoing violence and shootings; increase in division within our nation; sexual assaults and perversion in the entertainment and other industries; or any number of other grave concerns over current conditions in every aspect of society, the Word of God the Bible does give both the reason for such tragedies as well as give the solution for change. I would like to continue looking at the “reason” we are experiencing what we are in our society from a Biblical standpoint. The problem must be identified before the cure can be rendered. In so doing, I know there will be many that scoff and reject such words but in so doing this is the very reason we are in the mess that we are. When mankind (an individual, group of individuals, even an entire nation) rejects God and His truth, they lose the ability to reason and to think rationally. Thus becoming dependent upon some other source whether it be emotions or men’s empty philosophies. This is addressed very clearly in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans. Rom 1:16-32 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shown it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Paul begins by stating that God and His righteousness is revealed in and through the Gospel, the Word of God. When this (God, His righteousness, and His Word) is rejected by man, God turns him over to his own ways and means. And the path that he (man) will follow is to turn to all sorts of foolish ways and thinking which lead to devastating consequences.

Changes at Jamul Casino

The Hollywood Casino in Jamul is undergoing changes. The casino, owned by the Jamul Indian Village Development Corp. (JIVDC), has been renamed to Jamul Casino. In addition, JIVDC has announced a change in the casino’s management from Penn National Gaming (NASDAQ: PENN) to JIVDC. Penn National had managed the casino since its opened Oct. 10, 2016. In a press release, JIVDC said the termination of the casino’s current management company agreement with a Penn National subsidiary is a natural next step toward economic self-sufficiency for the Jamul Indian Village tribe. “Our announcement represents an important step toward our long-held goal to manage our own casino,” said Erica Pinto, JIVDC chairwoman. “We are grateful to Penn National for all their hard work and leadership in bringing what was a very challenging development project to fruition.” The press statement also said the casino’s current executive management team will stay in place during the switch to Jamul Casino. In addition, JIVDC has retained a transition team to assist with the details of rebranding and transferring management. According to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Penn Gaming’s subsidiary, called San Diego Gaming Ventures LLC, will cease management of the casino effective May 28, 2018. No lay-offs or changes in staffing are anticipated during the management transition, said Pinto. The facility has about 1,000 employees. In addition, members of the casino’s Marquee Rewards program will retain all of their earned comps and tier status, the press statement said. Penn National operates or financially supports several casinos across the U.S., including five in Mississippi and four in Illinois. The casino in Jamul was its only California-based gaming center. Before it opened, the casino was opposed by many Jamul residents over traffic congestion concerns on State Route 94. The casino features slot machines and live table games, as well as restaurants, bars and lounges.
