American Sign Language Interpreters at ‘The Odd Couple’ Performance

SANTEE — Over a four day period last month, volunteer helped create six scenic murals under the Magnolia Street underpass at the Walker Preserve Trail along the San Diego River. The project was supervised by professional artist Lori Escalera, who has taught art to thousands of children and adults. She has overseen similar projects over the past 20 years, including the installation of three murals along the San Diego River for the San Diego River Park Foundation. The six panel include: The Kumeyaay people who inhabited the region and the San Diego River basin before Europeans arrived (above). Wildlife that inhabit the riparian zone along the San Diego River. George A. Cowles, who in the late 1800s established a ranch that later became Santee (below). Fred and Marie Walker, who owned the farm where the Walker Preserve is today. The late Harriett Wade of the Santee Historical Society. Photos of Santee’s history as a hub for dairy farming.

EL CAJON — American Sign Language interpreters will join the production at a May 14 performance of the Neil Simon classic The Odd Couple at Grossmont College’s Stagehouse Theatre. Winner of four Tony Awards following its Broadway debut in 1965, The Odd Couple finds the mismatched neat freak Felix Unger being thrown out by his wife and moving in with his divorced, slovenly friend, Oscar Madison. Hilarity ensues when Oscar’s untidy, yet happy life of excessive gambling, smoking and drinking collides with Felix’s need to obsessively clean up after and criticize others. The characters were revived in a 1968 film and a 1970s television series. The 2 p.m. performance on May 14 will feature two professional American Sign Language interpreters. “There is a lot of preparation involved; it is not some-

thing you could just do,” said Jennifer Carmean, an American Sign Language instructor at Grossmont College who is working with Denise Robertson, an interpreter coordinator with Disabled Students Programs & Services, in organizing the interpretation services. Interpreters must review the script and coordinate with the actors involved to ensure they are interpreting each character correctly. Interpreters also must decide on who will interpret what characters and where they should be placed so they can be seen – but not get in the way – in relation to the furniture, lighting and props. “Most theatre performances are not accessible to deaf people, so this is a great opportunity for the deaf community and for the college,” Carmean said. General admission tickets are $15 each and can be purchased online www.grossmont. edu/theatrebrochure , by

phone – (619) 644-7234 – or at the Stagehouse Box Office one hour prior to the performance. Tickets for students attending the Grossmont-Community College District are $10 each. Tickets for seniors and members of the military are $12 each. Prepaid class discounts are available for groups of 20 or more. The Stagehouse Theatre is located in Building 21 at Grossmont College, toward the rear of Parking Lot 1. Parking passes are available upon request. The Odd Couple, directed by Grossmont College Theatre Arts Instructor Jeannette Thomas, will also be showing on May 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m., and May 7 at 2 p.m. The 2 p.m. performance on May 14 will be the only showing with American Sign Language interpretation services. Grossmont College is at 8800 Grossmont College Drive in El Cajon.

he revolving door in Sacramento is decisively alive and well today, but there’s also a move afoot to crimp it at least a little. Nancy McFadden, chief of staff for Gov. Jerry Brown, is not the first to use the cycle that sends so-called “public servants” on a continuous and connected path between lobbying and government, but her case is the latest cause célèbre. McFadden, an aide to Brown during the 1970s and early ‘80s, also worked for ex-Gov. Gray Davis and a was Bill Clinton administration official in Washington, D.C., before going to work for Pacific Gas & Electric Co. There, she soon became senior vice president and senior advisor to the corporate chairman, representing the big utility in Sacramento. After taking a $1.04 million “golden handshake” from PG&E, she went back to work for Brown when he returned to the governor’s office in 2010. She also held onto her PG&E shares and stock options for many months after getting back into government. She’s a classic example of the revolving door, especially since her agreement to take the big parting gift from PG&E prohibited her doing anything detrimental to the company. Then there’s former Assemblyman Henry T. Perea, a Democrat who represented Fresno for five years before taking a lucrative Sacramento job lobbying for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, better known as PhRMA. That’s the main lobbying arm of drug companies often collectively called Big Pharma. And there are former state Sen. Michael Rubio of Shafter, another Democrat, who moved to a job with Chevron Corp., and Bill Emmerson, a sometime Republican state senator from Riverside County now with the California Hospital Assn. The recent ex-legislators play a different role than McFadden, who sits in an extremely strategic place for helping her ex-employer. The former lawmakers’ job is to influence their buddies and recent colleagues still serving as legislators. It’s not as direct a role as McFadden can play, but it’s still the revolving door. The ex-lawmakers must wait one year before they can officially schmooze other legislators, but no one can prohibit them from playing golf together or watching televised sports or hoisting a drink or two near the state Capitol. Until now, there’s been no move against this sort of thing, which goes on even more frequently and flagrantly in Washington, D.C. But now comes Republican state Sen. Andy Vidak of Hanford with an effort to at least delay influence peddling a bit. Even though it might be against the future financial interests of some of them, Democratic lawmakers ought not to give this effort the automatic heave-ho often inflicted upon GOP-sponsored bills in Sacramento. Vidak, elected by a margin of almost 10 percent in a swing district in 2014, proposes a ban on ex-legislators lobbying their former co-workers and the governor until the end of the first legislative session beginning after the lawmaker leaves office. For statewide officials like the governor or secretary of state, he would extend an existing lobbying ban from one year to two. For Perea, this would have forbidden formal lobbying until at least three years after his departure, as the first full legislative session after his resignation starts next January and lasts two years. That might have made him not quite as hot a property for Big Pharma, essentially adding two years to his present schmoozing moratorium. This, said Vidak, could “discourage legislators from leaving office in the middle of their terms to take a lucrative…job, which often leads to a lucrative lobbying career.” He noted that special elections to replace departing lawmakers cost counties many millions of dollars, “money that would be better spent on critical local programs such as public safety, transportation or health.” Vidak notes that since term limits for legislators began in 1990, 58 special elections have been held for lawmakers who resigned in the midst of their terms. Many left after winning higher office, but some became lobbyists. In terms of good government, there’s no question Vidak’s bill represents improvement. But in terms of the financial futures of the legislators who will vote it up or down, it’s a downer. Which means this is one good idea not very likely to become reality, even though it should.

Drug-related Interactions


. Is it true that licorice can interfere with some medications? . Some forms of licorice may increase the risk for digoxin toxicity. Digoxin is used to treat heart failure and arrhythmias. Licorice may also reduce the effects of blood pressure medications or diuretic drugs (water pills). These are just a few of many drug-related interactions that can occur in your body. Drug interactions fall into three categories. There are drug reactions with foods and drink, dietary supplements and with other drugs. When you start any medicine, don’t be afraid to throw a lot of questions about it at your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. The first question should be: Can this medicine interact with anything else I put in my body?

Below are some interactions we should all know about:

• ALCOHOL: You should avoid alcohol when taking medication. Mixing alcohol with certain medications can cause nausea and vomiting, headaches, drowsiness, fainting, or loss of coordination. It also can put you at risk for internal bleeding, heart problems and difficulty breathing. In addition to these dangers, alcohol can make a medication less effective or even useless, or it may make the medication harmful or toxic to your body. Alcohol can also affect many over-the-counter medications and herbal remedies. • GRAPEFRUIT JUICE: You shouldn’t consume grapefruit if you are on some statins, which are used to lower cholesterol. Grapefruit juice contains a chemical that can interfere with the enzymes that break down statins in your digestive system. This can be dangerous because it’s uncertain what the effect would be on your total cholesterol. Grapefruit juice can raise the level of some medications in the blood. For example, grapefruit can cause higher blood levels of the anti-anxiety medicine buspirone, the antimalaria drug quinine, and a medication used to treat insomnia—triazolam. • ANTIHISTAMINES: Some over-the-counter (OTC) antihistamines taken for colds and allergies can increase the depressant effects of a sedative or tranquilizer. Antihistamines taken with blood pressure medication may elevate the blood pressure and may also increase the heart rate. • CHOCOLATE: Eating chocolate and taking monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors could be dangerous. MAO inhibitors treat depression. Someone who eats an excessive amount of chocolate after taking an MAO inhibitor may experience a sharp rise in blood pressure. The caffeine in chocolate can also interact with stimulant drugs such as Ritalin (methylphenidate), increasing their effect, or by decreasing the effect of sedative-hypnotics such as Ambien (zolpidem). • ST. JOHN’S WORT: St. John’s wort is an herb most commonly used for depression. This herb can reduce the concentration of medications in the blood. St. John’s Wort can reduce the blood level of medications such as digoxin, certain statins and the erectile-dysfunction drug Viagra. • VITAMIN E: Taking vitamin E with a blood-thinning medication such as Coumadin can increase anti-clotting activity and may cause an increased risk of bleeding. • GINSENG: This herb can interfere with the action of anticoagulants such as Coumadin and heparin. Combining ginseng with MAO inhibitors may cause headache, trouble sleeping, nervousness, and hyperactivity. • GINKGO BILOBA: High doses of the herb Ginkgo biloba could decrease the effectiveness of medications to control seizures.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Yoga, Aquatic Exercise Can Help Combat MS Symptoms


xercise can have a positive influence on certain symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis: Patients who do yoga and aquatic exercise suffer less from fatigue, depression and paresthesia, as reported by researchers from the University of Basel and the Psychiatric University Clinics Basel in a joint study with colleagues in Iran. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic progressive demyelinating disease in which the myelin (protective coating around nerve endings in the central nervous system) potentially resulting in movement disorders, among other syptoms. Other typical symptoms

In a random trial, researchers from Basel and Kermanshah (Iran) have now shown that these symptoms significantly improved after an eight-week program of yoga and aquatic exercise. In comparison to the control group, fatigue, depression and paresthesia were significantly reduced in patients who took part in a three-times weekly training program. In the non-exercising group, the likelihood of moderate to severe depression was 35-fold higher than in the groups who had done yoga or aquatic exercise. Fifty-four women with MS and an average age of 34 were

reetings precious people, this week 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. For most of this series we have been using the Gospel of Mark but now that we come to the last hours of Jesus’ life before His crucifixion we will be looking at the Apostle John’s account for he gives the most detailed account of Jesus’ final hours with His disciples. John 12:1-11 “Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it. But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial. For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.” Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.” There are two important events conveyed in the above verses, first, the anointing of Jesus by Mary in preparation of His death. As far as we know Mary was not married and the use of this costly perfume was in a sense, served as some form of security for Mary if times were to get difficult, the act of anointing Jesus was also a way in which Mary worshiped Him. Last time we saw Mary was in this same house sitting at His feet listening to Him as He taught. All this serves as a great example to follow for the believer today. As is often the case, when God’s people worship Him, there will be those who contest it and bring all kinds of accusations against them. In this instance, it was led by Judas who became upset with this act of worship; feigning a concern for the poor when in reality he simply wanted the money for himself. Mark tells us that this expressed discontentment by Judas for Mary’s act of worship influenced some of the other disciples and they too complained against her. I love how Jesus comes to her defense, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial.” The next event described for us that I want you to make note of is the “Hit” put out on the life of Lazarus by the religious leaders, “Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.” How amazing is this, that out of jealousy the chief priests would want poor Lazarus to be put to death. This fruit of the “flesh” (fallen, sinful human nature) jealousy, has been the cause of many a deaths and other acts of violence over the years. The religious leaders felt threatened by the popularity of Jesus, so many were being attracted to Him which meant people were not as interested in them as much as well as Jesus was exposing them for what they really were, Hypocrites.

SDSU BEATwith Steve Dolan SDSU Ranks Among Nation’s Top Project Management Programs


an Diego State University ranks among the top 50 in “best value” for project management certificate programs in the U.S., according to Offered through its College of Extended Studies, SDSU’s Project Management program is listed as No. 41 among national universities and colleges, and No. three within California State University institutions. The SDSU curriculum is designed to give project managers (and any other professionals who work on projects) the tools they need to successfully manage any type of project – regardless of scope or industry. To earn the certificate, students must successfully complete seven required courses and two electives within five years.
