Grossmont College Student Honored for Miss San Diego Cities Pageant Volunteer Efforts with Foster Youth EL CAJON — Grossmont College student Tina Snow Thornton (pictured right), is changing the world one foster youth at a time. Thornton has spent the past six years as a mentor to two foster siblings, one now 20 and the other who will be 18 in June. Not only has she devoted in excess of 2,200 hours to the San Diego County Foster Youth Mentor Program, during that time, Thornton – through Step Up Foster Youth Ministry at The Rock Church in Point Loma – also has helped guide and support more than 170 other adults who also have become mentors. That’s roughly one-third of the total number of people taking part in the county’s Foster Youth Mentor Program. Her selfless efforts were recognized in April when the San Diego County Health & Human Services Agency recognized Thornton with the Foster Youth Mentor Program Volunteer of the Year Award. “Tina brings a passion to what she is doing,” said Ross Ramos, a volunteer coordinator with the Foster Youth Mentor Program. “She is our most valuable volunteer partner.” Thornton’s faith and background fuel her passion. “My parents were always finding a way to serve their community, to work with their church, to do whatever they could to help others,” said Thornton, who added that knowing a couple of foster children while she was growing up sparked her interest in working with foster youth. “These kids are moving from house to house, moving in with strangers, they don’t know what school they’ll be attending tomorrow or where they’re going to be,” Thornton said. “These kids are facing the sort of challenges nobody should have to face.” Thornton is able to devote up to 10 hours a week or more with the young men she mentors even though she is immersed in her studies at Grossmont College. She will earn a certificate this June through the rigorous 20-week, Office Professional Training

SAN DIEGO — The Annual Miss San Diego Cities/ Miss San Diego Cities Teen Pageant was held at the Joan B. Kroc Theatre, Saturday May 7. “This event is a preliminary to Miss California USA and Miss California Teen USA, said pageant director Sierra Billock (pictured above, center). East County was well represented at the pageant. Competing were Rebecca Hudson – Miss Santee 2015, Kelli Loper – Miss La Mesa Teen 2014, and Heather Cantin – Miss Santee Teen 2015. Crowned for 2016 were Brianna Stafford – Miss San Diego Cites Teen (above, left) and Cecilia Rodriguez – Miss San Diego Cities (above, right). Program, with a specialization in accounting. “It’s really a well-developed program,” said Thornton, who is aiming to redefine her career as an accountant. “Everyone on the faculty is personally invested in seeing you succeed.” Mary Leslie, a professor in the Office Professional Training Program, said Thornton’s volunteer spirit extends to Grossmont College. “She’s always eager to lend a hand wherever it’s needed,” Leslie said, noting Thornton’s myriad efforts include helping with an April 30 Clothing Boutique that provides gently used professional outfits for students in the program to wear in interviews or on the job. “She deserves all the recognition in the world for what she does.” Thornton said she had undergone the training to

become a foster parent – and still plans someday on becoming one – but opted against it at the time. “I’m a single woman, I was working crazy hours. It just wouldn’t work.” When she heard about the Foster Youth Mentor Program, however, she was in. The younger brother she mentors told KFMB television that Thornton was a godsend when she came into his life. “I just wanted to have someone that I could relate to, just talk to about how I feel, to understand where I’m coming from and it was a perfect match,” the youth identified as Daniel, told the news station. “Back then, I needed more of a mom figure than a dad.” Thornton said the biggest challenge for most mentors is building trust with their mentees. “They have been through a lot of trauma,” she said. “You start building that trust just by showing up.” Mentors do far more than just show up, however. They can spend an entire Saturday or Sunday with a youth, doing everything from going to a street fair or for a hike to providing career guidance and discussing what healthy relationships look like. Said Thornton: “It’s an incredible feeling to know that you’ve played a role in helping a person re-establish a foundation.” Learn more about the Foster Youth Mentor Program by contacting Ross Ramos at rostum. email@example.com

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Expect Senate Race to Get Far Fiercer
Your Senator In The News Senator Joel Anderson
Senator Anderson Receives Honors From Vietnam Veterans
By Luis Ruiz
For The East County Herald SACRAMENTO — The Vietnam Veterans of America California State Council (VVACSC) presents the Legislator of the Year Award to legislators who consistently support California veterans and their families while serving in the California legislature. The VVA-CSC selected California State Senator Joel Anderson to receive this prestigious award due to his outstanding support and legislative achievements for veterans and recently presented the award in person in the Capitol. The VVA-CSC is a California-based coalition that was founded in 1978 to champion key issues that are important to Vietnam veterans and other veterans alike. It is partnered with the Vietnam
Veterans of America (VVA), which is the only veteran’s group that has congressional authority and caters to Vietnam veterans. Anderson said, “It is an honor to receive the VVA-CSC Legislator of the Year Award. I want to thank the VVA-CSC for their hard work on behalf of Vietnam and all veterans, it is a privilege to work with them in Sacramento to ensure our heroes get the resources they need to thrive.” Anderson recognizes the hefty sacrifices that veterans make for his country– and in turn, he has fought to support them throughout his time in the California State Legislature by advocating for veterans and passing pro-veteran legislation. He authored AB 257 while serving in the State Assembly, successful legislation which gave disabled veter-
ans and Congressional Medal of Honor awardees free passes to State Parks. To prevent veterans from unfairly losing their right to return to halls and buildings dedicated for their use when temporarily displaced for repairs and renovations, he passed SB 725 in 2013. In 2014 Anderson also successfully protected GI education benefits for California veterans with AB 13, co-authored with Assembly Member Conway (R-Tulare). The Legislative Committee Chair of the VVA-CSC, Ken Holybee, in his own words stated, “It has been a pleasure working with Senator Anderson and his staff during his tenure in the legislature. He has always been front and center on veterans issues and we look forward to continue working with him.”
n more than a year since state Attorney General Kamala Harris declared she’s running for the Senate seat soon to be vacated by retiring Democrat Barbara Boxer, Harris’ poll numbers have not changed much. She pulled about 31 percent in the first public poll on the contest; she got 27 percent and 33 per cent in the two latest surveys, leaving her still the clear leader less than two months before the June 7 primary election. So far, no one has laid a glove on her, but her numbers are static. And very few seem to care. The latest California Field Poll found fully 48 percent of likely voters undecided in this contest as of early April. So most were not interested, many unaware there’s even a Senate contest underway. “Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have sucked all the air out of the room,” opined Democratic Orange County Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez the other day, referring to the presidential nominating races on the same June ballot. Sanchez polls second in the race, at 15 percent in early April, up from about 8 percent a year ago. Three Republicans in the race, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Ron Unz and former state GOP chairmen Tom Del Beccaro and Geoge (Duf) Sundheim, had a combined 11 percent, splintered three ways. If the undecideds eventually break in the same proportion as those who have already made up their minds, the November runoff contest will feature two Democrats and no Republicans, under the top two primary system that puts the two leading June vote-getters into a November faceoff. But this so-far-sleepy race will soon become more heated. Harris has taken heat in the last two weeks for having her office represent Gov. Jerry Brown in his effort to keep secret more than 65 emails between him or his staff and the state Public Utilities Commission from 2013 and 2014, when the PUC was deciding who would pay for blunders and disasters at Pacific Gas & Electric Co. and Southern California Edison Co. that saw the 2012 closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the deadly 2010 San Bruno natural gas explosion. Consumer groups claim it’s a conflict of interest for Harris to represent Brown when he or his chief of staff, former PG&E lobbyist Nancy McFadden, might become witnesses in Harris’ ongoing criminal investigation of apparent PUC collusion with the big utilities. Outside ethics experts agree it’s a conflict, and you can bet Sanchez will hit Harris on it soon. Harris refused to comment, but her office released a statement claiming there’s an “ethical firewall” between lawyers investigating the PUC and those representing Brown. Sanchez, meanwhile, will take fire in this mostly liberal state for voting to give gun makers immunity from lawsuits when their products are used in crimes. But Sanchez is not shy about answering her critics. To those who blasted her for saying between 5 percent and 20 percent of Muslims would like to see a world-wide caliphate a la the terrorist Islamic State, she says, “Those are the numbers. No experts give a number under 20 percent. I’ve spent 20 years on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and visited many foreign Muslim leaders and they say it’s a huge worry for them. I was just at West Point and they talked about this. It’s in congressional testimony.” But Sanchez says she, like many voters, knows little about the three Republicans in the race. “I don’t know them and the voters don’t, either,” she said. So she believes she will survive past June and move on to a hot challenge of Harris and the Democratic Party establishment in the fall. “I think the San Francisco Democratic Party establishment clearly told people other than the San Franciscan to stay out,” she said, referring to Harris. That city’s establishment has dominated California politics in recent years, giving the state leaders like Brown, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sens. Boxer and Dianne Feinstein and Harris, a former San Francisco district attorney. Meanwhile, the three Republicans each hope to make it past June, but none has nearly as much campaign cash as either Harris or Sanchez. It adds up to a potentially fascinating race, and one sure to become fiery as mail balloting begins in mid-May.

Living with MS with Dee Dean
. How serious is angina? .
Angina pectoris – or simply angina-is the medical term for chest pain or discomfort usually caused by coronary artery disease. Angina is a sign that someone is at increased risk of heart attack, cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death. If you get angina, you should get medical attention immediately. Angina (pronounced “an-JI-nuh” or “AN-juh-nuh”) hits when the heart doesn’t get enough blood. This usually happens when there is a narrowing or blockage in one or more of the vessels that supply blood to the heart. Angina can come from exertion. It may make you sweat or lose your breath. The pain can strike your arm or neck, too. “Stable angina” comes on with exertion and then goes away easily. You can have this kind of angina for a long time. When the pattern of angina changes a lot, it’s called “unstable angina.” This is a danger sign. Unstable angina may be the first sign of a heart attack. Then there is “variant angina pectoris” or “Prinzmetal’s angina.” It usually occurs spontaneously and almost always occurs when a person is at rest. It doesn’t follow physical exertion or emotional stress, either. Variant angina is causedFull by transient coronary artery spasm. Service Salon
Physicians have a variety of diagnostic tools
• An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) can tell a doctor if your heart has been damaged by a heart attack. If the EKG is done while you are having chest pain, it can also show if your angina is caused by a problem with your heart. • A stress test is often done while you walk on a treadmill. Your doctor will look at your EKG to see if it’s abnormal when you exercise. Your doctor may also have x-rays of the heart taken before and after you exercise. These pictures can show if an area of the heart is not getting enough blood during exercise. • A cardiac catheterization involves inserting a long, thin tube into an artery in the arm or leg and then guiding it into the heart. Dye is injected into the arteries around the heart. X-rays are taken. The x-rays will show it if any of the arteries that supply the heart are blocked. • Most people diagnosed with heart disease have to take medicine. Medicines called beta blockers, calcium channel blockers and nitrates can help relieve angina.
There are surgical options
• Angioplasty uses a tiny balloon to push open blocked arteries around the heart. The balloon is inserted in an artery in the arm or leg. A stent (a small tube) might be put into the artery where the blockage was to hold the artery open. • In bypass surgery, the surgeon uses a healthy blood vessel taken from your leg, arm, chest or abdomen and connects it to the other arteries in your heart so that blood is bypassed around the diseased or blocked area This increases the blood flow to the heart.

Linking the Gut-Brain Connection in Multiple Sclerosis
o l e c u l e s derived from tryptophan, an amino acid found in turkey and other foods are related to the ability to limit inflammation of the brain. New research by investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) suggests that bacteria living in the gut may remotely influence the activity of cells in the brain that are involved in controlling inflammation and neurodegeneration. Using pre-clinical models for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and samples from MS patients, the team found evidence that changes in diet and gut flora may influence astrocytes in the brain, and, consequently, neurodegeneration, pointing to potential therapeutic targets. The team’s results are published Monday, May 9, in Nature Medicine. “For the first time, we’ve been able to identify that food has some sort of remote control over central nervous system inflammation,” said corresponding author Francisco Quintana, PhD, an investigator in the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at BWH. “What we eat influences the ability of bacteria in our gut to produce small molecules, some of which are capable of traveling all the way to the brain. This opens up an area that’s largely been unknown until now: how the gut controls brain inflammation.” According to the authors, dietary supplements and probiotics may be useful to control processes that contribute to the
pathology of neurological diseases. “Our studies were initially focused on Multiple Sclerosis, but also have implications for other diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s,” said Quintana. Previous investigations have suggested a connection between the gut microbiome and brain inflammation, but how the two are linked and how diet and microbial products influence this connection has remained largely unknown. To explore this connection further, Quintana and colleagues per-
formed genome-wide transcriptional analyses on astrocytes – star-shaped cells that reside in the brain and spinal cord – in a mouse model of MS, identifying a molecular pathway involved in inflammation. They found that molecules derived from dietary tryptophan (an amino acid famously found in turkey and other foods) act on this pathway, and that when more of these molecules are present,
astrocytes were able to limit brain inflammation. In blood samples from MS patients, the team found decreased levels of these tryptophan-derived molecules. “Deficits in the gut flora, deficits in the diet or deficits in the ability to uptake these products from the gut flora or transport them from the gut – any of these may lead to deficits that contribute to disease progression,” said Quintana. The research team plans to investigate this pathway and the role of diet in future studies to determine if the new findings can be translated into targets for therapeutic intervention and biomarkers for diagnosing and detecting the advancement of disease.

Can a Hearing Aid Delay or Prevent Dementia? A study by Johns Hopkins and the National Institute on Aging suggests older individuals with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop dementia over time than those who retain their hearing. They suggest that an intervention — such as a hearing aid — could delay or prevent dementia by improving hearing!

A Day in the Life of Jesus The Messiah
reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” 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 at the Apostle John’s account for he gives the most detailed account of Jesus’ final hours with His disciples. In John 12:12-19 we read, “The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ The King of Israel!” Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: “Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt.” His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him. Therefore the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, bore witness. For this reason the people also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, “You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!” There is one verse within our text that I would like us to focus upon, “.” His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him.” Within this one verse is an astounding proclamation, “these things were written about Him”. In the 39 books that make up the Old Testament are over 300 prophesies that foretell of Jesus’ first coming. Some of which are fulfilled in our current text. Do you understand the probability of just one man fulfilling these prophesies? A few years ago, a couple students from MIT conducted a study of probability concerning just 6 of these 300 prophesies being fulfilled by one man. When factoring in the billions of people that have lived on this earth over 6,000 years, the location these prophesies would be fulfilled; and many other factors they concluded that it would be a s likely as filling the state of Texas with silver dollars stacked 3 feet high; marking just one of those silver dollars with a distinguishing mark; blindfolding a man; placing him in the middle of Texas and him being able to locate that marked silver dollar on his first try. What is the probability of that happening? Beyond me! Some of the prophesies spoken here being fulfilled are from Psalm 72:17-19, Psalm 118:25-26, Hosea 3:5 and Zechariah 9:9. It is interesting to me that though the disciples had all these Scriptures and more along with having the One of whom these prophesies would be fulfilled within their midst, it was not until Jesus had risen from the dead that they actually understood them. I find this to be so much like ourselves, we have the Word of God; as we go through various trials for the testing and purifying of our faith; it is not until we have come out on the other side of the trial that we understand that God’s hand was in it and that He was working through our trial to bring us to a more complete faith. When we were in the midst of the trial we doubted; whined; complained and questioned God’s love for us even though He has promised us, John 16:33 “These things have I spoken unto to you that in me you might have peace in this world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.” The final thing we see from our text is how the religious leaders, the Pharisees recognized the popularity of Jesus and felt threatened by it. This would lead them to conspire with the other religious leaders (Saducees) to have Jesus eliminated.

Santee Resident Assumes Command of Helicopter Squadron Friday, May 6 . Marine Corps Air Station, Miramar
SAN DIEGO — Santee resident Lt. Col. Ian D. Stevens assumes command of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 462 (HMH-462). HMH-462 is a United States Marine Corps helicopter squadron consisting of CH-53E Super Stallion heavy transport helicopters. The squadron, known as the “Heavy Haulers”, is based at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California and falls under the command of Marine Aircraft Group 16 (MAG-16) and the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (3rd MAW). Stevens comes from a military family. His father was a career Navy Helicopter pilot, stationed at NAS North Island. He did 31 years, and his service included squadron command, ship command and Amphibious Group Command before retiring as a Captain. His brother is a Navy Lieutenant Commander (LCDR), and flies H-60Rs out of NAS Jacksonville. Stevens grew up in Santee, first from 1979-1984. his family went to Washington, D.C. following his father’s career at the Pentagon. Stevens moved back to Santee from 1987-1994, where he attended Rio Seco for first through third grade, and again, sixth through eighth grade when he moved back to Santee. He went to Santana High school and graduated in 1994. Stevens then went to the Naval Academy, and graduated in 1998. The City of Santee adopted HMH-462 on June 25, 2003 through the America Supporting America program. On Jan. 10, 2007, the City of Santee issued a proclamation as Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 462 Day. The HMH-462 Color Guard has participated at Santee’s 4th of July celebration and other events when they are not deployed.

SDSU BEATwith Steve Dolan
Learn to Teach English Abroad Through SDSU
an Diego State University will offer two sessions this summer for a program through its American Language Institute that prepares novice instructors to successfully live and teach English overseas. The TESL/TEFL Certificate program will take place weekdays, 8 am-4:30 pm, June 6-30 and July 11-Aug. 5. This 130-hour program combines a solid teaching foundation with hands-on practical classroom experience. Students will benefit from specialized sessions in language acquisition theory, understanding the English-language learner, classroom atmosphere and management, lesson planning, grammar for teachers, and more. “The TESL/TEFL program at ALI exceeded my expectations,” said program graduate Barbara Van Dyken. “The instructors were knowledgeable and easy to follow. The opportunities for teaching and interacting with the ESL students were plentiful. I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience.” Added program graduate Zachary York: “During the time I spent at SDSU’s American Language Institute, I discovered the intersection of my passions and education. I embarked on my journey not knowing where I would land; sights set on using my skill set to better the world. ALI has given me the keys to the kingdom and the ability to unlock the potential of my abilities. I have found what I am to do; what makes my heart sing.” More than 500 graduates have been employed in 40-plus countries with the help of this ALI program that offers worldwide job placement assistance. Cost of the program is $2,725. For more information, visit ali.sdsu.edu/teslteflcertificate or email email@example.com. This is an SDSU Research Foundation program through the ALI, a division of SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. SDSU’s College of Extended Studies reaches out to San Diego, the nation, and the world with a wide variety of lifelong learning opportunities, and more than 50 certificate programs for career advancement. Topics range from contract management, construction, and craft beer, to grant writing, marketing, and human resources. And many programs are available online. The CES also offers one of the largest ESL programs in the U.S. through the American Language Institute; and university-quality courses to students age 50 and better through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
