Santee City Council Honors

SANTEE — The Santee City Council recognized Anita Bautista 2017 Woman of the Year for the 71st Assembly District at their regular scheduled meeting Wednesday, March 22. Bautista was chosen by Assemblyman Randy Voepel earlier this month. She was recognized in Sacramento on the Assembly floor Monday, March 6. Recognized at the same city council meeting, Wednesday, March 22, was the West Hills JV Academic League team and the Santana Varsity Academic team for winning first place in the 2016-2107 Academic Competition. This is out of 12 high schools in the district. The Academic League is a nation-wide program featuring the best and brightest high school students. The competition uses questions from the curriculum taught in the California high schools. This academic/intellectual competition rivals that on the athletic field. The topics are Science, Social Science, English Language Arts, Fine Arts, Mathematics, and Current events.

Pictured above, center with Santee’s Mayor and City Council is Assembly 71 Woman of The Year, Anita Bautista. “Throughout her life Anita has touched thousands of people with her warmth, kindness, and generosity of spirit,” said Assemblyman Randy Voepel (not pictured). “Whether it’s brightening a room with her warm smile, dedicating hundreds of volunteer hours on behalf of our city [Santee] or happily cooking for our first responders, Anita’s contribution to this community has been invaluable,” he concluded.

Diego weighs 8 ounces and is probably about 10 days old.

Baby Bobcat Welcomed at Lions Tigers & Bears ALPINE — On Friday, March 24th, a baby California bobcat was found near a neighborhood pool in Rancho Bernardo. His mother was nowhere to be found, and the kitten was brought to a nearby pet hospital. After examining the bobcat, the hospital contacted LTB (Lions, Tigers & Bears). Unfortunately, the bobcat, now named Diego, will require too much human contact to be returned to the wild, so Lions Tigers & Bears will be caring for him for the rest of his life. As much as we love caring for our animals here at LTB, we would much rather see animals like Diego stay in the wild. If you find a bobcat or other wild animal, leave it where it is and do not touch it, even if it is injured. Contact Lions Tigers & Bears or a native species rehabilitation organization who will be able to safely handle the animal and maximize the chances of it being returned to the wild.

Congress Hit Lists Won’t Change Much

Your Senator In The News Senator Joel Anderson

Melanie Lococo (standing), Job Placement Specialist at PWI with representatives of Anderson.

Partnerships with Industry, Helping Our Neighbors Be Successful By Rebecca Ficke

For The East County Herald SANTEE — On Friday, Mar. 24, representatives of California State Senator Joel Anderson were invited to tour a nonprofit organization, Partnerships with Industry (PWI). PWI is a unique organization that works to connect adults with disabilities with San Diego County businesses. The organization’s goal is to create a well-rounded and passionate community between companies and their workforces. PWI is driven by the passion of staff members who focus on helping as many adults with disabilities as possible to succeed in their chosen job field. PWI supplies their clients with everything from personalized job coaching, connections to San Diego businesses, interview training, as well as other helpful career-oriented skills. Not only does PWI present a

variety of job opportunities from pet stores to restaurants to small-group projects, it is also focused on placing the client in their specific field of interest so clients can work in environments that encourage them to give their best. As Anderson’s team embarked on their tour of the Santee office, one of the four offices in San Diego County, they admired the walls covered with pictures of PWI clients at their jobs, at social events, and with staff members. One wall in particular, the “Hall of Fame” was filled with framed photos of clients who had been at their jobs for six years or more. In every picture, it was hard not to miss the smiling face of the PWI client, which was just as contagious as when the representatives were greeted by clients at work in the project center of the office. The project center, which is centered around small group

projects, is currently responsible for housing 45 ongoing contracts with San Diego businesses. Each worker is offered a position to their area of their interest which ranges from shredding paper to assembling dental kits to even shrink wrapping textbooks. Anderson said he is grateful for PWI’s dedication to their clients, and especially for their role at his annual Holiday Legislative Open House, handing out their delicious popcorn from the PWI popcorn machine to the thousands of hungry constituents who attend the event each year. Anderson shared, “PWI is an organization that’s all about helping our neighbors be successful. I am grateful for the work of PWI and cherish many memories I have built with them throughout the last few years.” More information about PWI including how to get involved can be found at www.pwiworks.org.

he semi-annual hit lists are now out from both the Democratic and Republican parties as they joust over future control of the House of Representatives, which just might be up for grabs in 2018 because of the record-level unpopularity of President Trump in some polls. Trump, of course, likes to call the polls “fake news,” but for the most part they were right on the mark last fall. On Election Eve, polls showed Trump behind by about 2.8 percent in the popular vote, very close to the actual margin by which he lost in that category. Many of those polls, however, ignored state-bystate standings that turned out to be keys to the election outcome. Democrats fervently hope Trump’s unpopularity with almost every group except his hardline base will translate into huge gains for them. They’ve declared fully half California’s 14 Republican House members vulnerable, introducing a hit list heavy on the Central Valley and Southern California. Meanwhile, Republicans placed only four of California’s 39 Democratic members of Congress on their own hit list. These lists can be factors in attracting challengers to take on incumbents because they decide where the Democratic and Republican congressional campaign committees will spent millions of donated dollars, especially early in the election season. But don’t expect much change in California’s representation next year merely because operatives of the opposing parties finger certain people. Most of those on these two lists won office last year by margins of at least 5 percent or 6 percent, a tough obstacle for challengers to overcome. Typical is Orange County Republican Dana Rohrabacher, who has never been conventional, even in his youthful days as a radio reporter running from one press conference to another in Los Angeles gathering voice actualities for radio stations. Rohrabacher has lately behaved in ways that might harm an incumbent less firmly entrenched than he is in his coastal district. He was, for instance, an ardent defender of the former national security advisor Michael Flynn, fired by Trump for lying about contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. He also stopped by on a European trip for a friendly visit with Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s most extreme right-wing party, one that has often been compared with Nazis for some of its stances on national ethnic purity. But none of that will likely impact Rohrabacher next year. He won by a 58-42 percent margin in 2016 and it would take a political earthquake to wipe out that edge. Of course, just such a shock nearly happened last fall to San Diego County’s Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who used to win reelection by margins of 15 and 20 percent, but was reelected last year by barely half a percent (about 1,600 votes) over a retired Marine colonel. Meanwhile, Sacramento area Democratic Rep. Ami Bera managed reelection by about 2 percent last year over a popular former county sheriff despite his father’s conviction for secretly funneling excessive campaign contributions to Rep. Bera’s campaign, a scandal that received copious news coverage in the district. How much chance would a Republican have this year if that wasn’t enough to beat Bera last time? The scandal will be old news by 2018. But the parties need targets. So the Republicans regularly name Palm Springs area Democrat Raul Ruiz and San Diego Democrat Scott Peters as targets, even though they won by 24 percent and 14 percent, respectively, last fall over significant opponents. And Democrats believe, as ever, that Central Valley Republicans Jeff Denham and David Valadao are vulnerable despite their handy wins last time and the fact that nothing much has changed for them except that Trump became President. Democrats also think their voter registration gains in Orange County may help unseat the likes of Reps. Ed Royce and Mimi Walters, each of whom had margins of more than 14 percent in 2016. They note that Democrat Hillary Clinton won the presidential vote in Walters’ district. The upshot of all this is that not much change is likely in California’s congressional delegation next year, no matter how optimistic the talk from both parties as they flog their targets. Which means that as Democrats try to take back control of the House next year, they’re not likely to get much help here. Elias has covered esoteric votes in eight national political conventions.

To Your

Up in Smoke


. I’ve never been a smoker and I just don’t

get why people do it. What’s the attraction?

. Only a non-smoker could

ask that question. Every smoker, chewer and sniffer knows how wonderful tobacco can be. I know it’s probably not politically correct to say anything nice about tobacco, but it’s the truth. All tobacco products contain nicotine, which is an addictive drug. According to the American Heart Association, the “nicotine addiction has historically been one of the hardest addictions to break.” Nicotine is up there with heroin and cocaine.

What does nicotine do for you? Nicotine:

• Decreases the appetite and helps you keep weight off. • Boosts mood and may even relieve minor depression. • Stimulates memory, alertness and concentration.

So why don’t we all gobble up nicotine? Because it:

• Increases heart rate by around 10 to 20 beats per minute. • Increases blood pressure by 5 to 10 mmHg (because it tightens the blood vessels). • Raises the blood level of blood sugar (glucose) and increases insulin production. • Increases bowel activity, saliva, and phlegm. • May cause sweating, nausea, and diarrhea. • Creates anxiety, irritability, headache, hunger, and a craving during withdrawal. Nicotine is a substance found in the nightshade family of plants. It kills bugs, therefore it has been used an insecticide. A drop of pure nicotine would kill a person. Nicotine is named after the tobacco plant Nicotiana tabacum, which was named after Jean Nicot de Villemain, French ambassador in Portugal. Nicot de Villemain sent tobacco and seeds from Brazil to Paris in 1560 and promoted their medicinal use. Nicotine was first isolated from the tobacco plant in 1828 by German chemists Posselt & Reimann, who considered it a poison. There are several strategies for treating nicotine withdrawal. Nicotine supplements can help. These include gum, inhalers, nasal spray and skin patches. There are also non-habit-forming prescription medications to get off nicotine. The symptoms of nicotine withdrawal usually go away in less than a week. Withdrawal is the most uncomfortable part of quitting, but the real challenge is beating long-term cravings. Each cigarette contains about 10 milligrams of nicotine. A smoker gets about 1 to 2 milligrams of the drug from each cigarette. With each puff of a cigarette, a smoker absorbs nicotine into the bloodstream. In eight seconds, nicotine changes how the brain works. Nicotine stimulates the release of large amounts of dopamine. Dopamine stimulates the brain’s pleasure and reward circuit. The nicotine in cigarettes isn’t what kills you. Cigarette smoke is a complex mixture of chemicals produced by the burning of tobacco and additives. The smoke contains tar, which is made up of more than 4,000 chemicals, including more than 60 known to cause cancer. Some of these substances cause heart and lung diseases, and all of them can be deadly.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

MicroRNA Treatment Restores Nerve Insulation, Limb Function in Mice With Multiple Sclerosis


cientists partially re-insulated ravaged nerves in mouse models of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and restored limb mobility by treating the animals with a small non-coding RNA called a microRNA. In a study published online March 27 in Developmental Cell, researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center report that treatment with a microRNA called miR219 restarted production of a substance called myelin in nerves of the central nervous system. Myelin forms a protective sheath around nerves, allowing them to efficiently transmit electrical impulses that stimulate movement. Study authors administered miR-219 into the spinal columns and cerebrospinal fluid of mice with nerve coatings damaged by a chemical called lysolecithin or by autoimmune encephalomyelitis induced in the animals, which is used to model MS. Treatment with miR-219 reinvigorated the function of damaged cells called oligodendrocytes that produce myelin, which allowed the substance to reform and reinsulate nerves. “We show that miR-219 targets multiple processes that inhibit myelin formation after nerve injury by the disease process, and that treatment with this microRNA partially

restores myelination and limb function,” said Q. Richard Lu, PhD, lead investigator and scientific director of the Brain Tumor Center at Cincinnati Children’s. “It is conceivable that augmenting miR-219 treatment with other blockers of myelin regrowth may provide a multipoint treatment strategy for people with demyelinating diseases like MS.” The authors stress that because their study was conducted in laboratory mouse models of disease, their data cannot at this stage be applied to clinical treatment in humans. Lu’s laboratory studies how certain glial cell subtypes of the central and peripheral nervous system form, participate in regeneration and how they can transform into cancerous cells.

Molecular Silencer

MicroRNAs are short segments of RNA encoded on the chromosomes of cells. They regulate gene expression in cells by acting as molecular silencers, essentially blocking gene expression in certain situations. A number of earlier research papers have pointed to the absence of miR-219 in the damaged nerves and tissues with certain neurodegenerative diseases like Multiple Sclerosis. Lu and his colleagues tested the presence and effects of miR-219 in genetically-engi-

ddean@echerald.com neered mouse models of MS with chemically induced nerve coating damage by lysolecithin and autoimmune encephalomyelitis. They also deleted miR-219 in mice to test the impact this had on myelinforming oligodendrocyte cells. The absence of miR-219 allowed a surge of activity by several inhibitors of nerve re-myelination – including a protein called Lingo1. Further testing revealed that miR-219 is an essential part of a network that targets and blocks molecules that inhibit the ability of oligodendrocytes to form myelin. This prompted the researchers to test treatment with miR219 in their animal models. For this they used a miR-219 mimic – essentially a synthesized version of the microRNA. After administering the mimic to their mouse models, the researchers noted improved limb function and regeneration of the myelin coating on nerves.

Next steps



Lu and his colleagues are now trying to develop additional mimics of miR-219 and therapeutically effective formulations of the microRNA to ease its delivery – particularly into brain tissue. The researchers also continue to test the potential effectiveness of miR-219 treatment in different models of neurodegenerative disease. Source: Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center

Wisdom for


with Pastor Drew

A Day in The Life of Jesus The Messiah



reetings precious people, this week we continue our s e r i e s 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 Jesus had appeared to the disciples at the Sea of Galilee, let’s look at some of the events that occurred during this encounter. John 21:15-25 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep. Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish.” This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow Me.” Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “But Lord, what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.” Then this saying went out among the brethren that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you?” This is the disciple who testifies of these things, and wrote these things; and we know that his testimony is true. And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.” A few things of importance here, first, Jesus uses the word Greek ‘agape’ translated into English as ‘love’. Agape means to love supremely, the same work that is used in John 3:16 to describe God’s love for all mankind. Peter responds with “I ‘phileo’ you” also translated ‘love’ in English which in Greek means, I am fond of, or kindly affectionate toward. In all 3 questions Jesus uses the same word ‘agape’ as does Peter ‘phileo’. Peter was honest which is always the best way to be when talking with the Lord. Even though Peter did not love Jesus supremely at this time, he would come to that place by the grace of God. This shows the wonderful patience and grace of God to work with us right where we are and bring us to the place we need to be if we are honest and open with Him. The second thing I want you to see is how Jesus calls Peter with the same call He had given to him over 3 years prior, “Follow Me”. This is the call that Jesus gives to all, we are to follow Him with reckless abandonment for He is worthy of nothing less. Notice how Peter gets distracted from this call when he points to John and asks, “What about him?” So typical of us, concerned about the ‘other person’. I love Jesus’ response, “What is that to you, you follow me”. Dear ones, God has called you to follow Him, regardless of what anyone else may be doing or not doing, you are to follow Him.

Na, who goes by the nickname “Anna,” is proof that something is never over until it’s over. At age 47, she is the oldest student attending the ALI that hosts students from around the world. Whenever she starts to feel down, she looks at Berra’s quote on the baseball. It immediately gives her motivation to face the rest of the day. “I think baseball is life,” Anna said. “Like in baseball, we have so many chances. If we don’t give up, we always have a chance to win.” Anna was recommended to the ALI by her son, a sophomore psychology major at SDSU who attended Torrey Pines High School north of campus while living with a host family. She believes she has hit a home run at the ALI because the IEC program will help her in three ways: • Studying. She’d like to help poor children learn how to speak English back home on Jeju Island, the largest island off the coast of the Korean Peninsula. • Speaking. She wants to be able to speak English to the grandchildren she hopes to have one day. • Communicating. An avid reader, she desires to be able to comprehend books written in English. “The younger ALI students ask me why I study so hard when I already have a job back home,” said Anna, who taught Japanese and Korean before coming to America. “I tell them this is my last chance in life. It has been on my bucket list to study without working. I made it!” “Some of them tell me I’m the same age as their mom,” she said. “I have a close relationship with them, and even share Korean food. I enjoy talking with my younger classmates. It helps me understand what young people are thinking.” Anna speaks fluent Korean and Japanese, as well as some Portuguese and Chinese. Because of that, she’s able to share with numerous ALI students in their native language. “I love to study foreign languages,” she said. “Greeting other students in their language is my ice breaker.” Since breaking the ice at ALI, Anna has made great strides in learning English. In fact, while being interviewed she proudly displays an “ALI Reading Award” she earned. “I have very special and great teachers at ALI,” she said. “I have taught 25 years and love my job. The teachers here motivate me to study. I really appreciate them.” In her spare time, Anna appreciates watching Major League Baseball in America. Her favorite player is Korean-born outfielder Hyun Soo Kim of the Baltimore Orioles. “I love him because he is so positive,” Anna said. “He practices so hard and doesn’t give up. He motivates me in study and in life.” Just like Hyun Soo Kim, who struggled to make the major leagues, Anna knows it’s never over until it’s over when it comes to improving in life.
