Grossmont College Student Ryland Inspires Many Arthur Walker

For The East County Herald EL CAJON — Grossmont College student Elham Ryland, (pictured far right), whose first name means “inspiration” in both Arabic and Persian, is indeed inspiring her peers with her ability to succeed over significant hurdles that most college students have never encountered. In 2014, Ryland faced shelter insecurity for the third time. Despite unstable living situations, shifting between temporary housing and becoming a resident at St. Vincent de Paul, she continued to excel with a 15 unit course load and earned 5 A’s. Ryland has made the Dean’s List, the Vice-President’s List, the President’s List, has been awarded the Griffin Award of Excellence, and recently was recognized with a Senate Certificate of Recognition for Academic Excellence by Senator Joel Anderson. Anderson said, “Elham’s impressive academic accomplishments and dedication to giving back to her school community despite her personal hardships are a shining example of the indomitable spirit that makes our country great.

f a committee of legislators or U.S. Senators whose most influential members were under criminal investigation ever considered raising taxes on Californians by significant amounts, protests would be non-stop and cacophonous. But with the seriously sullied state Public Utilities Commission about to raise electric rates for the bulk of this state’s residents, the silence from the public and from consumer advocates is deafening. Make no mistake, electric and natural gas rates are a lot like taxes, even if they’re not called that. As with taxes, don’t pay and dire consequences will follow. Maybe the fact that power prices seem more complex than taxes makes electricity customers – all of us – yawn when rate hikes are considered. Maybe it’s because the commissioners regulating large utilities like Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric never have to go before the voters. But the reality is that even as at least one current PUC member and the ex-president of the commission are under state and federal investigation, as early as this month the PUC may change the entire way electricity rates are levied. The seemingly arcane question about to be decided soon is how many rate tiers should appear on the typical California electricity bill. Tiers have a lot to do with how much customers pay for power, as for decades the rule has been that the more you use, the more you pay for each kilowatt hour. The idea has been to encourage energy conservation, just as tiered water prices – now under legal challenge – are one tactic to discourage excessive water use in a drought. A typical Edison bill this spring showed up to 618 kilowatt hours costing 14 cents each, for a total of $86.52, while the top tier of the same bill was priced at 31 cents per kilowatt hour, more than twice as much. Now the commission is about to consider a plan by PG&E – yes, the same company indicted for the 2010 gas pipeline explosion that killed eight persons and destroyed dozens of homes in San Bruno – to cut the number of rate tiers from four to two, a move sure to raise the rates of low-usage customers and lower what’s paid by factories, office buildings and other large power users. This would essentially see persons and companies that have cut power use to conserve energy and fight climate change pay more for using less. Meanwhile, energy hogs will pay less for using more, and climate change be damned. If PG&E wins the new formula it seeks, the same kind of plan will soon come to Edison and SDG&E electric customers. Edison already proposes a similar pricing change. This is part of an effort started by Democratic Assemblyman Henry Perea of Fresno to help the big utilities “simplify” their billing. It’s as if Perea and friends believe most Californians are not mentally competent to read an electricity bill. Another Perea measure, passed last year and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, will soon impose a flat fee (note it is not called a tax, although it acts just like one) of $5 per month or $60 per year on every electric customer. This new charge will supposedly compensate big power companies for continuing to maintain the state’s electric grid while more and more consumers install rooftop solar panels and at least partially go off the grid. This isn’t big money for most folks, but it is a slight disincentive to install solar, since the savings from it won’t be quite as good as before for big users. Is this really what Brown and other advocates of renewable energy want? It all may be the result of direct lobbying during a 2012 legislative conference on the Hawaiian island of Maui, where some lawmakers saw expenses paid by corporations and/or labor unions. Rate restructure was discussed there. If that conference had even the slightest influence on the coming changes, the plane tickets and hotel rooms paid for by businesses and their union workers will turn into choice investments. For these changes would mean billions of new dollars for the big utilities, lower bills for big energy hogs and higher prices for most consumers. Sadly, all that stands between consumers and that more expensive new reality is the thoroughly compromised PUC.

To Your

Use Caution While Taking Any Medication

QA

. My daughter heard that grapefruit juice can be toxic for some people. Is that true?

.

The juice, itself, is not toxic, but you should be careful taking medicine with any grapefruit. Grapefruit juice can raise the level of some medications in the blood. The effect of grapefruit was discovered after using juice to mask the taste of a medicine. So, be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if it is safe to have grapefruit with your medications. Taking medicine can be hazardous to your health. You have to know what you’re doing. For example, calcium-rich dairy products or certain antacids can prevent antibiotics from being properly absorbed into the bloodstream. Ginkgo biloba can reduce the effectiveness of blood-thinning medications and raise the risk for serious complications such as stroke. You should educate yourself so you know what active ingredients are in the prescription and over-the-counter medicines you are taking. Some people treat over-the-counter pain relievers as if they are harmless. They can hurt you if you take them improperly. They contain drugs such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium and aspirin. Acetaminophen is in Tylenol. Ibuprofen is in Advil. Naproxen sodium is in Aleve. Many prescription or over-the-counter medicines that treat multiple symptoms, such as cold and flu medications, also include acetaminophen and the other pain-relieving ingredients. So you have to be careful not to take too much of any one ingredient by ingesting more than one medication that contains that ingredient. Seniors take more medicines than any other age group because they have more health problems. Taking several drugs a day presents dangers. Here are some more tips to avoid these hazards: Always inform your doctor or pharmacist about all medicines you are already taking, including herbal products and over-thecounter medications. Tell your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist about past problems you have had with medicines, such as rashes, indigestion or dizziness. Don’t mix alcohol and medicine unless your doctor or pharmacist says it’s okay. Some medicines may not work well or may make you sick if you take them with alcohol. The best advice is this: Don’t be afraid to throw a lot of questions about your medicines at your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Here are some good ones: When should I take it? As needed, or on a schedule? Before, with or between meals? At bedtime? How often should I take it? How long will I have to take it? How will I feel once I start taking this medicine? How will I know if this medicine is working? If I forget to take it, what should I do? What side effects might I expect? Should I report them? Can this medicine interact with other prescription and overthe-counter medicines—including herbal and dietary supplements—that I am taking now? And, ask your pharmacist to put your medicine in large, easyto open containers with large-print labels.

Living with MS with Dee Dean Multiple Sclerosis: Scientists Identify Cause of Movement, Balance Problems

N

ew research into the causes of the excessive inflammation that drives Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has identified a faulty “brake” within immune cells, a brake that should be controlling the inflammation. This points to a potential target for developing new therapies to treat multiple sclerosis and could have important implications for other autoimmune diseases, such as the colon disease colitis and the chronic skin condition atopic dermatitis. Further, the work has produced new research models of Multiple Sclerosis symptoms such as movement disorders and balance control problems that have, until now, resisted efforts to mimic them effectively in the lab. These models represent important new tools in the efforts to better understand -- and eventually cure -- MS and other autoimmune conditions. The researchers determined that a mutation in the gene Nlrp12 was causing immune cells known as T cells to go haywire. Normally, the research-

ers determined, the protein the gene produces acts as a brake within T cells to control the inflammatory response. But a mutation in that gene disrupts the natural process and provokes severe inflammation -- with effects the researchers found most intriguing. To the researchers’ surprise, the resulting inflammation did not produce the paralysis often associated with multiple sclerosis. It did, however, produce other MS symptoms -- such as movement disorders and problems with balance control -- which scientists have struggled to replicate in experimental lab settings. “It’s important to note that MS is a spectrum disorder -- some patients present with paralyzing conditions and

some patients don’t,” said researcher John Lukens, PhD, of the University of Virginia School of Medicine Department of Neuroscience and its

ddean@echerald.com Center for Brain Immunology and Glia. “Not everybody’s symptoms are the same, so this might give us a glimpse into the etiology or pathogenesis of that family of MS.” By blocking the inflammatory response, doctors may one day be able to control the symptoms it causes, both in MS and in other diseases driven by hyperinflammation.

EVERYDAY with PastorLIFE Drew

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART VII

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” Over the past 2,000 years there have been many writings, books, messages, and ideas, expressing various thoughts and opinions concern who Jesus was and is. My intention in doing this series is that you, the reader may come to know who Jesus really is and there is no better place to look than the Word of God the Bible. As we look at various events in the life of Jesus we must keep in mind that He has not changed and never will. Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” And as Hebrews 1:1-4 tells us that, Jesus is the express image of God, Hebrews 1:1-4; as well as what Jesus told Philip in John 14:7-10 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him… He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” Because He is Who He says He is and that He never changes, the work He did 2,000 years ago, He has continued to do it through those who are surrendered to Him, offering themselves as vessels fit for the Master’s use; in and through those who believe in Him. This brings great hope to us today as we live in a dark and hopeless world. The reason I remind you of this is because there are many today that would have you believe that Jesus is not who He says He is; that He is not the same today and forever. During or after Jesus was traveling from town to town with His disciples, a wonderful event took place, Mark 1:40-45 “Then a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” And Jesus, moved with compassion, put out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed. And He strictly warned him and sent him away at once, and said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing those things which Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” But he went out and began to proclaim it freely and to spread the matter, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter the city, but was outside in deserted places; and they came to Him from every quarter.” There are some crucial truths we need to observe here. First, this man that had been struck with the horrible disease of leprosy had come to Jesus desiring that He touch him and make him whole. This implies that somehow, someway, somewhere this man had heard about Jesus, possibly from someone that had experienced a healing by Jesus themself, or maybe it was a friend or relative that had told him about Jesus and His power to heal, or even a stranger told him. The important thing for us who profess to be followers of Jesus is that like the person who told this man about Jesus, we need to be telling others about Him as well. Second and foremost, is how Jesus responded to this man’s plea for help, He had compassion on him and reached out and touched the man. This may not seem like that big of a deal to us because we do not understand the thinking of the day and seriousness of the disease. The thinking among the Jews concerning this particular disease was that not only was the person who had the leprosy unclean but anyone that would come in contact with him would become unclean as well. It was and still is a most horrible disease; there was no cure and it always resulted in a slow and agonizing sure death. No one would ever touch a person with leprosy for fear of contracting the disease but Jesus reached out and touched him because He had compassion on this man. Think of it, this man had possibly not experienced another human’s touch for years making him feel worthless; unwanted; despised; rejected; a total outcast without any hope at all. Then all of a sudden this man Jesus comes walking by and not only stops to listen to him but touches him and restores his flesh to that of a baby. Jesus still desires to touch the untouchables of this world; to have compassion upon the outcasts of society; to reach out and touch the rejected, despised, and unwanted of our day. Only today, He chooses to do it through those who are following Jesus. We who believe that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever are to be His hands, feet, and voice. Will you offer yourself to Him for the task?

O

Sounds more like a beer

t was gonna be my birthday in a couple of days so I figured I’d splurge and get one of those coffee pots except it isn’t really a coffee pot because it only makes one cup of coffee and anyway it’s called a Keurig Brewing System which sounds more like a beer than coffee but I guess coffee is brewed, too, so that’s okay. Anyway I ended up getting a Mr. Coffee, not a Keurig, because when I went on Amazon.com the Mr. Coffee cost less than the Keurig and it claimed to do the same thing and the reviews for Mr. Coffee were one star more glowing than for the Keurig so I ordered Mr. Coffee and couldn’t wait to get it and save myself all the trouble of measuring out the coffee grounds and emptying the messy wet grounds after the coffee brewed and well, I just wanted one! Mr. Coffee arrived the next day with a sample package of those tiny K-cups that look like creamer cups plus I ordered an extra variety pack so I’d be sure to have enough for everyone at my birthday celebration. The little K-cup – well, you prob’ly know, but in case you don’t, that little K-cup is filled with coffee grounds and you put it in the jaws of the brewer contraption and shut them. Inside, tiny steel blades poke holes in the top and bottom of the K-cup so the water can drip through, except it doesn’t drip it runs

really fast through the K-cup and into the coffee cup you set below. I hope you did or you’re going to have a mess all over your countertop. I had to fight to get Mr. Coffee out of its box. The molded Styrofoam wouldn’t let go. Five minutes later I won the tug of war and plunked Mr. Coffee on my countertop to wait for further instructions. Plugging it in was easy. That’s when I noticed the “Keurig Brewed” label on the front. What? I ordered a Mr. Coffee! Oh, okay - “Mr. Coffee” is embossed in black on the jaws of the brewer. Did I mention I was born in Brewer? Prob’ly not, but I was. Brewer, that’s in Maine, near Bangor and if you don’t know where that is, either, that’s okay. So now I was ready to try a cup of coffee to see if it was as good as the coffee my son and daughter-in-law brewed for me in their bona fide Keurig Brewing System a few months ago. It took a while to decide which K-cup to use; the variety pack had everything from Donut House, McCafe, Paul Newman, Starbucks and more... I forget which one I chose but after I popped it into the jaws of the brewer, I realized I needed to fill the reservoir with water and then I couldn’t get the dang thing out of its slot. I pulled harder and harder until I gave up and read the instructions. “Remove Water Reservoir,” it said. Thanks…I

tugged again. Oops! Lift-off ! The coffee was delicious but then I didn’t know how to turn off the pot - um, brewer - because I couldn’t find an “off ” button. Nothing about an “off ” button in the instructions so I yanked the plug out. That worked. Then I noticed the “Helpful Hints.” Point one: “Keep your Brewer turned “ON” at all times.” I really didn’t want to do that so I kept reading and there it was - in the fine print: an “Auto-Off Timer Feature” that turns the brewer off two hours after your last brew: “Follow the instructions on page 12.” A bit tricky… you hold down the Serving Size Button and the Brew Button together for five seconds. The buttons will flash. Be ready to count – they flash really quick! Two flashes for activated; five flashes for de-activated. I’ve got it all under control now. Stop by for a brew next time you’re in the neighborhood…

SDSU Students Learn Social Entrepreneurship

scar Neto has a dream to eliminate poverty in his home country of Brazil. Thanks to the groundbreaking Social Entrepreneurship certificate program at San Diego State University’s American Language Institute, Neto’s dream has every chance of becoming a reality. Social entrepreneurship focuses on creating businesses that solve social problems. Examples include TOMS Shoes, which matches every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes for a person in need; and VisionSpring, which sells deeply discounted ready-made reading glasses to people in the developing world. “We have a great environment to create a program like this,” said Kelly Shah, ALI program director, noting that SDSU was ranked No. 18 by FORBES on its list of America’s Most Entrepreneurial Universities. Designed for students with highintermediate to advanced Englishlanguage proficiency, the program is completely unique in that no other university offers social entrepreneurship in combination with English-language instruction. Students gain enhanced English proficiency, a marketable skill, and an international framework for a business plan. Comprised of 16 international students from Burundi, China, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, the program’s first-ever cohort of students graduated earlier this semester. Via case studies, guest speakers, on-campus resources,

and field trips to actual SE businesses, they studied business trends and innovative entrepreneurships, and developed business plans to make the world a better place. “It was a very inspiring program,” said student Alison Kaneza from Burundi. “Each day, we learned about experiences of other entrepreneurs. It gave us ideas to know exactly what we should do in the future.” Student Jean Vincent of France marveled at the simplicity of the social entrepreneurship concept. “It’s like helping people on this side and doing [your] business on the other side. You can do both at the same time. That’s the great point,” he said. Neto of Brazil was similarly impressed. “That we can actually give a chance for those who are in need, that’s just amazing. And you can do that pretty easy.” The Social Entrepreneurship program includes membership in the SDSU Entrepreneur Society where ALI students can interact with their American counterparts. They also have access to the Zahn and Lavin entrepreneurial centers on main campus, both of which host competitions and notable guest speakers. Neto’s business model involves partnership with Kiva, a nonprofit organization that gives any person the opportunity to lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity and alleviate poverty around the world. “I want to get back to my country and change things for the better,” he said.

region, has sent a letter to the Navy stating its opposition to the pending closure of a health clinic in Santee. The clinic, called the Naval Health Clinic East County, has served active duty and retired military families in the East County for the past 10 years. In addition to primary healthcare services, the Santee clinic, located in a retail complex at 120 Town Center Parkway, also served patients with mammography and laboratory services, as well as a pharmacy. The U.S. Navy’s Naval Medical Center San Diego, the headquarters for local health clinics operated by the military, recently informed patients that their clinic will close at the end of May due to expiration of the building lease. GHD said the Navy is referring patients of the Santee clinic to another military clinic, the Naval Branch Health Clinic Kearny Mesa, 8808 Balboa Ave., San Diego, which is about 11 miles away. In late April, GHD sent a letter, signed by GHD 2015 board president Robert “Bob” Ayres, to the Navy voicing its disapproval of the clinic’s closure. GHD’s letter, sent to Capt. Jose Acosta, commander, Naval Medical Center San Diego, said the Santee clinic “is an important part of the healthcare mosaic of the East Region and its closure will adversely impact the overall mission to meet the healthcare needs of our District residents. We know that your numerous active duty and retired military families will benefit by the continuation of this service and will prevent their migration to our other over-extended civilian facilities.” Meanwhile, GHD forwarded copies of its letter sent to the Navy to local East County elected officials, including U.S. Congress members Duncan Hunter and Susan Davis, State Senator Joel Anderson, California Assembly members Brian Jones and Shirley Weber, County Supervisor Dianne Jacob and Santee city council members. GHD said some of them have responded or are planning to respond with their own letter to the Navy opposing the clinic’s closure.

“THE CLOCK IS TICKING ON

SOLAR’S SWEET DEAL.” Dear San Diego Homeowner, We want you to have the best current solar information so you can make a wise investment. In that spirit, there are two big changes for solar happening in the near future that you should know about. Taken together, they argue for moving forward SOON – in the next 6 months. If you’ve been putting off the purchase of a solar energy system until a “better time” – please note: the best time to go solar has now arrived!

Net Metering Law

THE CHANGES

Current California rules about “net metering” — which allow solar customers to zero out their power bills, guaranteed for the next 20 years — will be changing in the next year or two. The present favorable rules will apply until solar reaches 5% penetration in SDG&E territory. With the popularity of solar still growing, that deadline could be reached as early as December 2015, according to some industry experts. After that, who knows what will take its place?

Federal Income Tax Credit The very generous solar income tax credit — which allows the federal government to pay for 30% of the solar energy system cost — is set to expire at the end of next year (2016). That amounts to a 30% price increase on new solar after that date.

WHAT ALL THIS MEANS FOR HOMEOWNERS Homeowners who move forward in the next six months are guaranteed the best deals: • Greatest savings compared to the power company • Lowest prices on solar hardware — costs on materials and labor will increase • Fastest delivery times for installation — installation backlogs will happen • 30% solar tax credit guaranteed • 20-year guarantee to zero-out your power bills with solar

Don’t let this great opportunity pass you by. The best time to go solar is RIGHT NOW! Call Stellar Solar today for your free, no obligation quote and remember: the sooner you go solar, the sooner you start saving!
