Dedication to Students Earn Kudos for East County Colleges’ Faculty

EL CAJON — Two instructors at Cuyamaca College and a counselor at Grossmont College have been honored for their contributions to their campuses and commitment to student success. Theresa “T” Ford, a counselor and adjunct instructor at Grossmont College, received the President’s Leadership Award. At Cuyamaca College, math instructor Katherine Naimark and Child Development instructor and program coordinator Kristin Zink received the 2017 Awards for Teaching Excellence. “The deep and abiding commitment of our faculty to the success of our students shines through in all that they do,” said Cindy L. Miles, chancellor of the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District. “The winners of these coveted awards exemplify what makes our instructors and counselors at both colleges so very special. Our fundamental mission is to serve students and they have made a difference in the lives of so many.”

T Ford

In a repeat of her 1997 win, Theresa “T” Ford is this semester’s recipient of the President’s Leadership Award, one of the Grossmont’s highest honors recognizing distinguished service to the college. She shared her plaudit 20 years ago with Claudia Thompson, counselor emerita, for her role in implementing a college success program targeting first-year students. Grossmont College President Nabil Abu-Ghazaleh described Ford as an innovative leader, a student-centered educator and an advocate for equity and diversity. In 2009 was selected for the Distinguished Faculty Award and also received an Excellence in Teaching Award. In 2007, she helped establish Umoja (an African word for unity), a learning resource at Grossmont College that is part of a statewide program designed to bolster African-American students with counseling support, peer mentoring, and cultural and educational field trips In her acceptance speech, Ford expressed her gratitude for working with dedicated coworkers at Grossmont College. A photo montage also paid tribute to many who mentored and nurtured her in her career as a counselor at the college since 1988 and as an adjunct instructor since 1995 in the English and Cross-Cultural Studies departments. Social justice is a running theme in Ford’s life. As a college student in Illinois, she worked on behalf of at-risk young people sentenced to the state’s correctional facilities. She served for a time as a legal researcher for the public defender’s office and a battered women’s legal clinic. Ford is also a certified mediator trained by the National Conflict

SANTEE — Children were smiling with their new, shiny, varnished teeth as they exited the annual ‘Give Kids A Smile’ event on Saturday, Feb. 25 held at various locations in San Diego County including Santee. San Diego Dental Health Foundation, First 5 San Diego, Share the Care, and Mountain Health Santee Family Medicine were recognized with Senate certificates of recognition by State Senator Joel Anderson for their heart-warming dedication to children ages one to eighteen with no dental resources. The event provided free check-ups, including dental sealants and fluoride varnish for the patients, as well as music, face painting and other activities, providing an overall bright atmosphere to the clinic. “It’s great that so many organizations and businesses in our community want to make sure our youth have access to dental health services and make it fun for the whole family to join the event.” said Anderson. The event also helps patients find dental homes, where they can get ongoing care. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for the people who are not bringing their kids to dental clinics, and it is a positive thing where they get some good oral care. We hope that it will have some long-term impact for these populations,” explained Mike Koonce, Executive Director of San Diego County Dental Society. Representative from First 5 San Diego, an organization that aims at promoting health and well-being of children during their first five years of development, noted her satisfaction of being able to give access to its resources to families who seek dental help through communal events like Give Kids A Smile. The event also offered education to parents and children on the importance of oral hygiene, such as educating them on what to eat, how to brush, and other useful information regarding dental care. One attendee, a single-mother who heard about this event through a flyer, thanked the organization for saving her money, especially for dental procedures like sealants that can cost her over one hundred dollars.

home were filled with honors and awards related to fighting for civil and human rights,” she said during her acceptance speech. With a nod to past generations of former slaves in her family, Ford closed her speech with a line from poet Maya Angelou: “I am the hope and the dream of the slave.”

Kristin Zink

More than 45 years at the front of a classroom have not dimmed Kristin Zink’s love of teaching, first as a graduate assistant in Child Development at San Diego State University in the early ‘70s, then as a part-time instructor at several colleges before she became a full-time faculty member at Cuyamaca College in 1991. “I knew I was at home,” she said. The chair of Child Development recalls a time when the program was called Nursery School Training. Regulatory changes have upped the requirements and certifications for her students to enter the field as preschool aides and teachers. Those wanting to advance as directors of daycare facilities typically now require bachelor’s degrees. The San Diego State University alumna holds two master’s degrees, including one in special education from what was then Point Loma Nazarene College. She said the need for more education is one reason she is excited about a new baccalaureate program at in child development offered at Cuyamaca College through an agreement the college has signed with Point Loma Nazarene University. “What’s been most reward-

ing to me are the opening and growth and excellence of our Child Development Center and the concurrent growth and professionalism of our child development program,” Zink said. She was previously honored with an award for Teaching Excellence in 1994 and a President’s Award in 2001 in recognition of her role in making the college’s Child Development Center a reality. Opened in August 2001, the center serves a dual purpose as a preschool for youngsters from the campus and the community, and as a fieldwork site for students in the Child Development program.

Katherine Naimark

Adjunct math instructor Katherine Naimark has taught at Cuyamaca College for less than two years, but in that short time her impact has been felt. As an adjunct instructor at San Diego City, Miramar and Grossmont colleges as well as at Cuyamaca College, Naimark has a keen understanding of the mission of community colleges and needs of students. Born and raised in Moscow, Russia in a family of mathematicians, scientists and engineers, Naimark has childhood memories of brain puzzles at the dinner table and challenging friends in math contests at school. After moving with her family to Israel, she continued her pursuit of math in college, earning a bachelor’s in mathematics and physics from Tel Aviv University, and a master’s and a doctorate in math from the Weizmann Institute of Science. In 2001, she moved to Texas and accepted her first teaching position at the University of Texas at Austin. Two years later she

moved to North Carolina to teach at the historically black North Carolina Central University, an eye-opening and transforming experience. “My NC Central students didn’t come from elite high schools; they were underprivileged AfricanAmerican students, struggling with loathsome fractions in aspirations to get a college degree and a better life,” she said. “I was furious with the inequalities that life had thrown them, but I admired these students’ spirit. I rolled up my sleeves and started doing my best to help them with what they needed so badly: making sense of math, seeing its usefulness, and maybe even its beauty.” Fifteen years later, Naimark is taking on the same challenges at Cuyamaca College, transforming underprepared students into those capable of college-level math. Twice a week for three hours each evening, students in her accelerated statistics class work together in groups, accomplishing what was thought to be impossible: passing a transfer-level math class in just one semester. Naimark credits fellow math faculty at Cuyamaca College for spearheading an accelerated learning approach that allows basic-skills students to enroll in college-level and remedial classes at the same time. It has proven to be a winning formula, with students quickly advancing to college-level work and avoiding the extra semesters of remedial math that were previously required. Naimark said she is humbled by winning the adjunct Award for Teaching Excellence, and honored by her students’ praise.

rom the day Republican President Donald Trump won last fall’s election, Gov. Jerry Brown has worked to position himself as the leader of the loyal opposition, saying time and again that he will fight for the liberal agenda so popular in California, from same sex marriage to climate change activism. He’s especially vocal about preserving the state’s ability to move on its own to improve air quality and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases most scientists have found are a prime cause of climate change and global warming. So it was a little startling when 12 environmental and public interest groups just published a report recently questioning Brown’s green credentials, claiming he consistently lives down to his name: “Brown” on everything from oil drilling to preventing toxic emissions and promoting an overcapacity of fossil-fueled, greenhouse gas-spewing electric plants. That last may have been the biggest surprise, considering Brown’s frequent posturing as a champion of renewable energy, especially power from wind and solar sources. Despite his frequent words, the 12 groups say California now derives 60 percent of its power from fossil fuels, mostly natural gas, while in 2012, just after Brown took office for the second time, the state was getting just 53 percent of its electricity from such “dirty” sources. What’s more, the groups charged in their 56-page report, Brown systematically encourages a glut of power plants that sees consumers pay for about 20 percent more generating capacity than the state will ever need in the foreseeable future. The accusing groups include Consumer Watchdog, Food & Water Watch, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Restore the Delta, among others. Restore the Delta has long opposed Brown’s “twin tunnels” plan to bring Northern California river water around the Sacramento-San Joaquin river delta, while Consumer Watchdog previously issued a report accusing Brown of political corruption. As with past reports like that, Brown has said nothing about the claims against him, thus assuring they got little publicity. “Same drivel, different day,” press secretary Evan Westrup opined. But the claims in the environmental report appear every bit as solid as those in the previous corruption allegations, the subject of an ongoing investigation by a state watchdog agency. Food and Water Watch is particularly incensed about the apparent acquiescence of Brown appointees in plans of Southern California Gas Co. to reopen its flawed Aliso Canyon gas storage field in northern Los Angeles, even if it’s at somewhat lower levels of gas quantity than SoCal Gas finds optimal. The group noted that Brown’s sister, Kathleen, the former state treasurer, draws a six-figure fee as a board member of SoCal’s parent company, Sempra Energy, saying that makes his actions – or inaction – on Aliso a conflict of interest. The report also castigates Brown for “nurturing (oil and gas) drilling and fracking,” repeating a contention that early in his term he fired regulators who tried to delay hydraulic fracking for gas and oil in Kern County until there were assurances that waste water from those operations would not harm ground water supplies often used for crop irrigation. The report claimed Brown is living out his 2012 statement that “The oil rigs are moving in Kern County…we want to use our resources (including) the sun and all the other sources of power. It’s not easy. There are going to be screwups, there are going to be bankruptcies, there’ll be indictments and there’ll be deaths, but…nothing is going to stop us.” So far, there have been no indictments, but former Brown-appointed members of the state Public Utilities Commission have been under investigation since early 2015 by federal and state authorities. The green groups noted that Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein endorses a state legislative bill to keep Aliso Canyon closed until the causes of the storage field’s months-long leak in 2015 and 2016 are found and fixed. Brown is silent on that bill. None of these claims has yet affected either Brown’s approval ratings or his policies. No one yet knows if the contradictions cited between his posturing and his actions will sully his legacy, his standing in state history or his prospects in a potential future run for the Senate. Which means all anyone can do is stay tuned.

From The Geezer’s Mailbag... . My doctor ordered a TSH test. What is



. The thyroid is a small, butterfly-

shaped gland located in the middle of the lower neck. It produces hormones that control metabolism, which are the chemical processes cells in the body perform to keep us alive. It should come as no surprise that the thyroid gland often peters out as we get older. The thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test checks to see if your thyroid is producing the right amount of hormone for your system. If the gland is making too much hormone, you get hyperthyroidism; if it makes too little, you get hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is very common in people over 60 years of age; the incidence of it steadily increases with age. About 25 percent of people in nursing homes may have undiagnosed hypothyroidism because the symptoms of this condition can be misinterpreted as signs of aging. The American Thyroid Association recommends that all adults, both men and women, begin their screening at age 35 and every five years thereafter. Experts in this organization argue that such early screening is inexpensive and would prevent progression to hypothyroidism. The symptoms of hypothyroidism include: fatigue, intolerance to cold, constipation, forgetfulness, muscle cramps, hair loss, depression, weight gain, dry skin, hoarseness and mood swings. The symptoms of hyperthyroidism include: weight loss (not always in seniors), heat intolerance, hyperactivity, muscle weakness, palpitations, tremors, nervousness, irritability, insomnia, enlarged thyroid gland, frequent bowel movements, vision problems or eye irritation.


. I recall an episode of Seinfeld that got a lot of


laughs about man breasts. I have them and it’s not funny. Is there a cure?

. Breast enlargement in males is common. About

30 percent of older men have this condition, which can be caused by hormonal changes or simple weight gain. When the usual balance of the female hormone estrogen and the male hormone testosterone in a man shifts, he can get “gynecomastia,” which is derived from two Greek words that mean “woman” and “breast.” Males normally produce small quantities of estrogen to regulate bone density, sperm production and mood. Natural hormonal changes that lead to gynecomastia occur not only in old age but also during infancy and adolescence. Gynecomastia can be caused by a health problem such as liver, kidney or thyroid diseases. And, this condition can also result from drinking alcohol or taking drugs such as steroids, marijuana, amphetamines and heroin. There are medications that can cause gynecomastia, too. If you have enlarged breasts, see your doctor for a check-up. Enlarged breasts can be a symptom of breast cancer or a testicular tumor. Gynecomastia usually will go away without treatment. This condition is often treated with drugs. Sometimes, enlarged breasts are reduced surgically.


. Can copper bracelets treat arthritis?


There is no scientific evidence that copper bracelets do anything more than make a fashion statement. However, there is no proof that the bracelets don’t provide relief to arthritis sufferers. Copper bracelets for arthritis have been around for a century or more. Many people swear that they work. Some doctors suspect that the positive reports are based upon symptoms going away by themselves. Folk remedies like copper bracelets seem to be harmless. However, they often delay effective medical treatment, so these so-called “cures” are not completely benign. Ask The Healthy Geezer a question at:

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Fungal Compound triggering Axon Regeneration Offers Hope for MS Treatments


he idea of repairing damaged axons — a key component of advancing disability in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) — just got closer to reality, with the discovery that a compound found in fungi triggered axon regeneration, making damaged axons grow “like weeds.” Scientists have long struggled to find compounds that stimulate the repair of axons, the long, thread-like neuron appendages that send signals to other cells. The study, “Small-Molecule Stabilization of 14-3-3 Protein-Protein Interactions Stimulates Axon Regeneration,” appeared in the journal Neuron. The discovery was made with the help of PhD candidate Andrew Kaplan, working in the laboratory of Dr. Alyson Fournier, a neurology and neurosurgery professor at Canada’s McGill University. Fournier’s team had been focused on axon regeneration for some time, particularly a group of proteins with known

neuroprotective properties called 14-3-3. Previous studies had shown that when plants are hit by certain fungal infections, they react by shedding their leaves and growing roots. The fungal molecule responsible for this, fusicoccin-A, is known to affect 14-3-3. So while plant roots and human nerve cells are indeed very different natural phenomena, Kaplan figured that these insights may prove valuable. “While 14-3-3 is the common denominator in this phenomenon, the identity of the other proteins involved and the resulting biological activities differ between plants and animals,” said Kaplan in a news release. The team decided to use fusicoccin-A to treat labgrown neurons with damaged axons. “When I looked under the microscope the following day, the axons were growing like weeds, an exciting result that led us to determine that fusicoccin-A can stimulate axon repair in the injured nervous system,” said Kaplan. Besides brain and spinal

cord injury, axonal damage is a factor in many other disorders and diseases, including Multiple Sclerosis and neurodegenerative conditions. The team’s discovery means that fusicoccin-A and similar molecules could be the starting point to develop drugs that treat axonal damage. Kaplan says future work should focus on better understanding the mechanisms by which fusicoccin-A improves axon repair. The team now seeks a deeper understanding of how fusicoccin-A makes the neurons grow. Researchers have already learned that a protein called GCN1 is involved in the process. GCN1 and 14-3-3 need to physically bond for fusicoccin-A to boost axon growth. They are now examining if GCN1 could be a suitable drug target for more specific treatments to trigger regeneration. “We have identified a novel strategy to promote axon regeneration with a family of small molecules that may be excellent candidates for future drug development,” concluded Fournier. “This is an exciting advance because the field has struggled to find treatments and identify targets for drugs that stimulate axon repair.”

BREAKING NEWS Doctor Makes Hearing Aids Affordable for Everyone

Digital Hearing Aid Costs 90%

Sreekant Cherukuri Board Certified Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor, and MDHearingAid Founder


Board-certified Ear, Nose, and Throat physician Dr. S. Cherukuri, a graduate of the prestigious University of Michigan School of Medicine, built a very successful practice helping patients with hearing problems. “I was often frustrated by the fact that many of my patients could benefit from the use of a hearing aid, but unfortunately couldn’t afford one. I then made it my mission to change this, making quality digital hearing aids affordable for anyone who needs one.”

It’s Nearly Invisible “I knew when I developed a new line of hearing aids that one of the most important requirements would be for the device to be hard for others to see,” said Dr. Cherukuri. “One of the biggest objections people have to wearing a hearing aid is that they are embarrassed. Our design helps people get past this concern.” Digital Hearing Aid Outperforms Competitors The new medical grade hearing aid is called MDHearingAid® AIR. It is sleek, lightweight, and full of the same advanced digital technology found in higher-priced devices, but at a small fraction of the price. “I couldn’t understand why everything in the digital world kept coming down in price, like computers, TVs, and DVD players, but not digital hearing aids,” Cherukuri said. Once the doctor started to realize his dream and was able to produce a device that costs 90% less, the industry was turned upside down.

A Day in The Life of Jesus The Messiah



reetings precious people, again, we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” As a

reminder, we are doing this series that you may come to know the truth about Jesus as the Word of God the Bible conveys it. We are looking to the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) and drawing from them to get an accurate look at the chronological view of Jesus. This week, we continue to look at the events that occurred after the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ as recorded for us in the Word of God the Bible. Last time we saw how two of the disciples had spent time with Jesus on the road to Emmaus. Jesus patiently walked with them; taught them from the Word of God, reassuring them that the Christ must suffer many things, be crucified, but rise again the third day. At this the eyes and hearts of the 2 were opened and they realized it was Jesus that was with them and with that Jesus vanished. Now we pick up with the next events, Luke 24:33-49 “So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread. Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.” But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit. And He said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts? Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet. But while they still did not believe for joy, and marveled, He said to them, “Have you any food here?” So they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish and some honeycomb. And He took it and ate in their presence. Then He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.” And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures. Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.” Once again we see the long suffering of the Lord with His unbelieving disciples. I have seen over the years this same patience that the Lord has shown to me, the many times I doubted, questioned, and had unbelief yet the Lord would patiently work in my life reminding me of His presence and faithfulness. He is so good! Another important event occurred at this meeting of which John records in his gospel, John 20:19-23 “Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” Drew Macintyre is associate pastor of Calvary Chapel of Alpine and can be reached at 619-445-2589, or

SDSU BEATwith Steve Dolan

OLLI at SDSU Expands Course Offerings


he Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at SDSU will expand its outreach during the spring semester by offering two classes at the beautiful new St. Paul’s Plaza in Chula Vista. “Our whole population was not being reached,” said Alpine resident Louise Phipps, a retired high school principal who’s chair of the operating board at St. Paul’s Plaza. “We thought it would be natural to acquaint South Bay with SDSU’s OLLI program,” added the OLLI at SDSU member. “OLLI is a perfect fit for staying involved. Anything you were interested in before but didn’t have time to learn, you can learn now.” Every semester, OLLI at SDSU features an exciting lineup of lectures, workshops, book clubs, Edventures, and events for lifelong learners age 50 and better. The St. Paul’s Plaza lectures offer the perfect opportunity for individuals to sample the diversity and vibrancy of SDSU. There’s a special introductory course cost of $10 at St. Paul’s Plaza, which offers easy and free parking. Afterward, attendees are invited to stay for socializing and food at the onsite pub with special happy hour pricing.

Courses include:

• The Bhagavad Gita, Monday, Apr. 3, 11am–1 pm What does the Bhagavad Gita teach about God, duty, ethics, war, society, consciousness, human nature, violence, and the beauty of being alive? A favorite book of Gandhi who carried chapter two in his pocket his whole life, and of Thoreau who brought only one book to Walden Pond, his copy of the Gita borrowed from his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson. Very few books have had this long a reach or this profound an impact. Attendees will find out why. The registration deadline is March 27. • Thoreau, Gandhi, and King – The Politics of Right Action, Wednesday, Apr. 26, 10 am–12 pm During the 20th century, Mahatma Gandhi in India led a non-violent revolution defeating the most powerful empire on earth. Martin Luther King led the civil rights movement and forever changed the racial and spiritual landscape of America. Both Gandhi and King cite Thoreau’s essential essay “Civil Disobedience” as a manifesto of moral political action. Attendees will trace the spiritual and philosophical roots of these three remarkable leaders and search for solutions to today’s vexing social and political problems. The registration deadline is Apr. 19. Both classes are taught by Peter Bolland, a chair of the humanities department at Southwestern College, and a professor of philosophy and humanities. Phipps, who has earned two master’s degrees and a doctorate degree, said Bolland is popular among OLLI at SDSU students. “We hand-picked Peter Bolland,” she said. “He is extraordinary. He’s among the best professors I’ve ever been in a room with. I’m anxious for others to be exposed to him.” For more information, call (619) 594-2863, email or visit To learn more about the classes at St. Paul’s Plaza, visit

EAST COUNTY BIZwith Rick Griffin La Mesa resident, Sharp Grossmont nurse, joins hospital construction monitoring citizens group

The volunteer citizens group monitoring the spending of millions of dollars in public funds for new and improved patient care facilities at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa has a new member. Lindsey Ryan, the hospital’s Manager of Nursing Education and Professional Development, has joined the Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC). ICBOC members are uncompensated East County residents who are charged with monitoring the expenditure of funds from the $247 million, voter-approved 2006 Proposition G bond measure. The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD) is the public agency managing the bond-financed construction at the hospital, and serving as landlord of hospital property and buildings on behalf of local taxpayers. Specific seats on the ICBOC are filled by individuals representing various constituency groups and business sectors, such as project management, large-scale construction operations, finance, labor and healthcare. Ryan will serve as a representative of Sharp Grossmont Hospital’s professional medical staff. “I’m very excited for the opportunity to serve,” said Ryan, a La Mesa resident. “I believe strongly in applying new knowledge and innovation, using evidence-based practices and advancing interdisciplinary quality initiatives. I also believe that nurses can lead change to advance health and promote nurse-led science and discovery.” Ryan has 13 years of experience in acute and critical care nursing, including seven years as a clinical nurse specialist.

season is off to a booming start. “It’s a home seller’s market because of a low inventory of available homes for sale,” said Sarah Heck, PSAR 2017 president. Also, PSAR reports the average days on market for a home in San Diego County has dropped to 33, which is 50 percent less than it was 10 years ago, and the median price of a San Diego County home was $495,000 in January 2017, up from $462,750 in January 2016, according to CoreLogic, a California real estate data and analytics company. Meanwhile, PSAR also reports that San Diego’s singlefamily home market ranked as the sixth-hottest in the nation in February, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Seven of the 10 “hottest” markets were in California; most were in northern California. Also, PSAR said a recent industry study by determined the best time to sell a home in San Diego is the first two weeks of April. Homes listed in the period April 1 to 15 sold 13 days faster and at a 1.3 percent premium. “Overall, 2017 is shaping up to be another competitive buying season,” said Heck. “By May some buyers may be anxious to get settled into a new home and may be more willing to pay a premium to close the deal.” PSAR is a real estate trade organization for San Diego-area realtors.

and regulatory compliance environments. He oversees operations and regulatory compliance for Sharp Central Pharmacy, Sharp Home Infusion Pharmacy, Sharp Specialty Pharmacy and Sharp Hospice Pharmacy Services. In 2016, he was involved in the opening of a new 6,700-square-foot pharmacy at the Heart and Vascular Center, a taxpayerfunded building at Sharp Grossmont Hospital. Kathy Quinn, Herrick Library director, said, “Join us for a questionand-answer program about drugs and medications. Dr. Schell also will talk about the role of the pharmacist in the community, as well as medication safety.”

La Mesa property manager receives industry volunteer award La Mesa resident Claudia Sitta, property manager with Management de Novo, Inc., a homeowners association management company, was recently honored as the 2016 Chapter Volunteer of the Year by the San Diego chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI-SD), a trade organization for the common interest development industry. It was Sitta’s second consecutive year to receive the honor from the 800-member CAI-SD chapter, and it’s believed the first time for consecutive back-to-back Volunteer of the Year honors for the same San Diego CAI member since the local chapter was founded in 1973. “We are proud to recognize Claudia for the second year in a row because she chaired the Sponsorship Committee and was involved in 2016 with helping to organize several CAI educational programs for our members,” said Richard Ybarra, CEO and Chapter Executive Director, CAI-SD. “Her enthusiasm and willingness to be involved was a great example for all our members.” Ybarra also said Sitta was involved in CAI-SD during past year in organizing members to participate in several community service projects, including feeding homeless people and a clothing drive for Stand UP for Children, a nonprofit that serves homeless youth in Downtown San Diego.

The Alpine Community Planning Group is an advisory body only. E. Open Discussion: Opportunity for members of the public to speak to the ACPG on any subject matter within the ACPG’s jurisdiction that is not on the posted agenda. F. Prioritization of this Meeting’s Agenda Items G. Organized / Special Presentations 1. The County of San Diego Dept. of Public Works proposes improvements to prevent scour from occurring under the footings for Willows Road Bridge. The 400 foot long bridge was constructed in by Caltrans in 1933. In November 2000 Caltrans conducted a bridge scour evaluation that resulted in classification of Willows Road Bridge as “scour critical” (i.e. vulnerable to scour). Hydraulic and scour evaluations indicate that a 100-year flood event is expected to result in scour below the existing footings of the bridge, several of which are known or suspected to be located between 1 and 12-feet above non-scourable bedrock. These footings are therefore susceptible to scour below the footings, which could undermine the integrity of the bridge. Footings at each of the piers will be retrofitted to prevent scour by construction of piles extended into the bedrock around the perimeter of each footing to effectively deepen and strengthen the foundation of the bridge. Construction is expected to begin fall 2017 and be completed in spring 2018 and is estimated to cost approximately $2.8 million. The project is fully funded by Federal Highway Administration grant funding through the Caltrans Highway Bridge Program. The county is requesting a recommendation from the ACPG regarding the proposal to complete these improvements. Presentation, Discussion, & Action. H. Group Business: 1. ACPG Seat #13 vacancy – Candidates interested in filling the vacancy are invited to make a presentation of qualifications (up to 5 minutes) to ACPG.
