Grossmont College Names New President EL CAJON ­— Dr. Nabil S. Abu-Ghazaleh, president of West Los Angeles College, has been named president of Grossmont College effective July 1. Cindy L. Miles, chancellor of the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District, said Abu-Ghazaleh’s more than a quarter-century in California community college leadership, including the four years he has held the top post at the Culver City campus, made him the solid choice to take the helm of the 18,000-student El Cajon college. “He has a clear record of innovative leadership, collegial cooperation, and community engagement,” Miles said. “His community college career includes a decade as a tenured instructor before he

moved into administration, where he has proven himself as a highly effective leader in budget strategies, enrollment planning, student success, and employee relations. “He also understands the importance of developing good relations with the business and local community. In West Los Angeles, he immediately got to work, expanding the visibility of the college and actively engaging with community projects. Grossmont College will be in great hands with someone as well-rounded as Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh, with his skills in community college administration, as well as his collegiality.” Governing Board President Bill Garrett praised AbuGhazaleh for his history of collaboration with neighbor-

Volunteers Provide New Perola for St. Mads By Luis Gonzalez

For The East County Herald EL CAJON — St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC) has a new pergola to provide shade for their students and staff to escape from the heat this summer thanks to some incredible volunteers. SMSC is an important part of the East County community, offering many services that have expanded from aiding preschool children in 1966 when it first started, to now serving over 400 adults with developmental disabilities by teaching math, reading, arts, living skills, and vocational training at their five-acre campus in El Cajon. SMSC’s mission is to “educate and empower individuals with developmental disabilities to realize their full potential,” and through their programs students gain independence, self-esteem, and lasting friendships. State Senator Joel Anderson provided certificates of recognition to the volunteers who completed the pergola and expressed his gratitude when he said, “The dedicated volunteers are vital to making St. Madeline Sophie’s Center such a vibrant, welcoming place for their students. It’s an honor to recognize those who generously give of their time and resources to help our community members with developmental disabilities enrich their lives with the wonderful opportunities that St. Madeline Sophie’s Center provides.” SMSC relies heavily on volunteers to grow their programs and their campus. In fact, the new vineyard which was dedicated at last year’s Morning Glory Brunch, was built and funded solely by volunteers. Volunteers and supporters have also helped build a greenhouse, a pool and

ing colleges, school districts, industry groups and public agencies on regional education and training needs. He also pointed to his experience expanding grants programs and leading student success initiatives for a diverse student body. “We have found an innovative leader who is able to lead internally and to see beyond the college perimeter to develop ties with the community in ways to enhance the education provided to our students,” Garrett said. Abu-Ghazaleh said he is thrilled about his new post at Grossmont College and happy to be returning to San Diego, where he first lived years ago as a college student. Born and raised in Jordan and Qatar in the Persian Gulf, he attended two years of boarding school in England before moving to the United States to begin college at the University of California, San Diego. About Grossmont College, Abu-Ghazaleh said he is “enchanted” by the vitality of the campus and how committed students are to learning. “In my interactions with students and employees, I was struck by how rich the academic and co-curricular offerings, and student services are at Grossmont – this isn’t just a commuter college,” he said. “It’s a place where faculty members are deeply engaged with students, the staff is very welcoming, and students are very focused when talking about their studies and their


A varied background

Before taking leadership of West Los Angeles College in 2011, Abu-Ghazaleh served as vice chancellor of educational services and technology at Coast Community College District in Costa Mesa; vice president of academic affairs at Pierce College in Woodland Hills; dean of student learning at Moorpark College near Simi Valley; and interim dean of engineering and technology at Pasadena City College. It was at Pasadena City College where he began his community college career in 1989 as an associate professor in engineering and technology – a “happy accident,” he said, from spotting a classified ad in the paper. A Caltrans engineer at the time for less than two years, Abu-Ghazaleh had gotten a taste of teaching from training fellow workers in computer-aided engineering and discovered a love for the classroom. “My only familiarity with community colleges at the time was through my wife, who had graduated from Glendale College and transferred to UCSD, which is where I met her,” he said. After his stint with Caltrans, he spent the next decade as a tenured professor before his promotion as interim dean at Pasadena City College, where his wife, Rita Gonzales, is now a tenured associate professor in the speech communication. “I realized I could touch the

lives of more community college students as an administrator than an instructor,” he has said at a campus forum. Following a nationwide search, a 16-member committee of faculty, staff, administrators, students and community representatives screened and interviewed candidates for the college’s top post. The committee selected four finalists, who participated in public forums in April. Extensive reference reviews and interviews with the district’s chancellor and governing board yielded the top choice to lead Grossmont College. Abu-Ghazaleh holds a doctorate in Educational Leadership from California State University, Fullerton; a master’s in education from the University of California, Los Angeles, a master’s in engineering sciences from the University of California, San Diego; and a bachelor’s in engineering sciences, also from UCSD. He is a board member of the Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges and is chair of the board of Intelecom, a regional community college educational technology corporation. “I look forward to building new relationships with fellow educators, the communities of East County, and of course, our students who reflect wonderfully diverse communities,” Abu-Ghazaleh said. “Continuing to build on Grossmont’s excellent traditions, together we will embrace the opportunities of a rich, eminent future.”

deas come fast every time California endures a drought of several years. Each time, some of them are accepted and put into use, thus making the next drought a bit easier to handle. Back in the 1970s, the last time this state saw as protracted a dry spell as today’s, snickering and cries of “yuck” ensued when some environmentalists proposed reusing water from dishes, baths, showers and more to irrigate grass and shrubbery rather than merely disposing of it as sewage. This idea is now called “grey water,” and it is required of much new industrial and multi-family construction like apartments and condominiums, along with low-flow faucets, shower heads and toilets. During that same drought, which ended abruptly with a huge storm season starting in December 1977, the late Kenneth Hahn, a longtime Los Angeles County supervisor who fathered both a Los Angeles mayor and a current congresswoman, suggested snagging icebergs as they calved from Antarctica and dragging them north to become drinking water. That idea has not yet taken, even as the same global warming trend that some believe responsible for the severity of California’s latest dry period now sees more icebergs than ever dropping from Antarctic cliffs. The modern drought is also producing new ideas, including several proposed methods for desalinating sea water far more cheaply than via the current reverse osmosis filtering technique. It’s also seeing rehashes of old ideas. One of the most prominent is the notion of building pipelines to bring California water from faraway sources plagued by more precipitation than they need. This one gets its most recent push from actor William Shatner, the Captain Kirk of Star Trek fame. Shatner, 84, proposes building a pipeline on the scale of the Alaskan oil pipeline to bring water south from Washington state, where he says there’s an excess. Shatner proposes a Kickstarter campaign to raise the approximate $30 billion this one would cost to build. Trouble is, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee this spring declared a drought in 13 of his state’s river basins. Any visitor to the Evergreen State will see swaths of once-green conifers turning brown. So it doesn’t look like Shatner will be able to beam this one up anytime soon. Like the Antarctic icebergs, a Pacific Northwest water pipeline was also a Kenny Hahn pipe dream, this one during a somewhat shorter but still severe drought in the early 1990s, a time when then-Gov. Pete Wilson, an ex-Marine, asked all Californians to save water via “Navy showers,” turning the water off while they soaped down. Hahn found a political partner for the pipeline idea in thenGov. Walter Hickel of Alaska, who traveled to Los Angeles to pursue the notion of selling ice water to California in huge quantities. As in Antarctica, some Alaskan glaciers were then calving icebergs steadily, and still are. Hickel proposed fabricating this pipeline of plastic on a giant barge as it was being laid on the ocean floor from southern Alaska to Southern California. Plastic, he and Hahn believed, would be far cheaper and more flexible than the usual steel and concrete used for oil pipelines. Plus, any leakage of pipeline water – unlike oil – would be harmless. Some thinkers today hear of flooding and record blizzards in the East and Midwest and propose building a water pipeline from there. “You wouldn’t have to worry about leakage, like with oil,” one Google engineering manager said recently, echoing Hickel. “If water leaked, it would do no harm.” Drought in the Northwest (several Oregon counties also are in official states of drought now, too) makes it unlikely California will soon get water from there. But a water pipe from the Midwest is conceivable under two circumstances: 1) the price of water rises enough to pay for construction, the same pre-condition needed for new desalination plants, or 2) California is able to extract enough natural gas from the Monterey Shale formation to free up one of the three major gas pipelines bringing that fuel here from Canada, Texas, Oklahoma and the Rocky Mountain region. These ideas may sound far-fetched today, or even silly to some, but if gray water could become a reality, why not a water pipeline from someplace very wet?

To Your

Seniors and Low Vision


PAGE FIVE • MAY 28-JUNE 3, 2015

Living with MS with Dee Dean

. What kind of glasses should you get for low vision?

. Low vision is a significant reduction in visual function that can’t be corrected by regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery. Low vision can range from moderate impairment— such as tunnel vision or blind spots—to almost total blindness. One out of every 20 people has low vision. About 135 million people around the world suffer from this impairment. Irreversible vision loss is most common among people over age 65. However, losing vision is not just part of getting older. Some normal changes occur as we get older. These changes usually don’t lead to low vision. Low vision can be caused by diseases, disorders, and injuries that affect the eye. Many people with low vision have age-related macular degeneration, cataracts or glaucoma. Almost 45 percent of all cases of low vision are caused by age-related macular degeneration, which progressively destroys the central retina (macula) at the back of your eye. The retina is to your eye what film is to a camera. If you think you may have low vision, consult an eyecare professional who can tell the difference between normal changes in the aging eye and those caused by disease.

Full Service Salon

There are many signs that indicate possible vision loss. Under normal circumstances, do you have trouble recognizing faces of people you know? Is it difficult for you to read, sew, match the color of your clothes? Do lights seem dimmer than they used to? Vision changes like these could be early warning signs of eye disease. Usually, the earlier your problem is diagnosed, the better your chances are for successful treatment and maintaining your vision. Regular eye exams should be part of your routine health care. However, if you think your vision has changed, you should see your eyecare professional as soon as possible. A specialist in low vision is an optometrist or ophthalmologist who is trained to evaluate vision. This professional can prescribe visual devices and teach people how to use them. Devices and rehabilitation programs can help you adapt to vision loss. They may help you maintain your lifestyle. These devices include: adjustable lighting; large-print publications; magnifying devices; closed-circuit televisions; electronic reading machines; computer systems with voice-recognition; telescopes, and telephones, clocks, and watches with large numbers. Rehabilitation programs offer a wide range of services such as low-vision evaluations and special training to use adaptive devices. They also offer guidance for making changes in your home as well as group support from others with low vision.

Discovery of a Treatment to Block the Progression of Multiple Sclerosis


drug that could halt the progression of Multiple Sclerosis may soon be developed thanks to a discovery by a team at the CHUM Research Centre and the University of Montreal. The researchers have identified a molecule called MCAM, and they have shown that blocking this molecule could delay the onset of the disease and significantly slow its progression. These encouraging results from in vitro tests in humans and in vivo tests in mice were published today in the Annals of Neurology. “We believe we have identified the first therapy that will impact the quality of life of people with Multiple Sclerosis by significantly reducing the disability and the disease’s progression,” said Dr. Alexandre Prat, lead author of the study, researcher at the CRCHUM, and professor in the Department of Neurosciences at the University of Montreal. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disease that is characterized by paralysis, numbness, loss of vision, and gait and balance deficits that lead to chronic disability. There is no effective cure. The disease particularly affects young adults in northern countries. The brain is normally protected from attacks by the bloodbrain barrier. The blood-brain barrier prevents immune cells -- lymphocytes -- from entering the central nervous system. In people with MS, there is often leakage. Two types of lympho-

cytes, CD4 and CD8, find a way to cross this protective barrier. They attack the brain by destroying the myelin sheath that protects neurons, resulting in decreased transmission of nerve impulses, and plaque formation. In 2008, Dr. Prat’s team identified a cell adhesion molecule, called MCAM (Melanoma Cell Adhesion Molecule), which plays a crucial role in dysregulation of the immune system observed in Multiple Sclerosis. “Our studies have shown that MCAM is necessary for the migration of CD4 and CD8 across the blood-brain barrier. If we block the interaction of MCAM with the protein to which it normally binds, we decrease the disease’s activity,” he said. Independently, the biotechnology company Prothena Corporation plc also discovered complementary data regarding MCAM, which led to an ongoing collaboration between the CRCHUM and Prothena. The results are extremely positive. “We observed a decrease of approximately 50 percent of the disease in mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), the most widely used animal model of MS. What is especially significant is that we can stop the disease from the first symptoms in addition to having an impact on its progression, which is a first,” noted Prat. MS develops in most patients in two phases. For 10 to 15 years, there are outbreaks of symptoms interspersed with remissions. Later, the diseases progresses and the disability worsens, leading to the use of a cane or wheelchair. Currently, none of the drugs available on the market affect the disease’s progression. Prothena has developed a potentially disease-modifying antibody, called PRX003, which is designed, to inhibit MCAM function and thus prevent migration of destructive lymphocytes into tissue. Prothena expects to initiate clinical trials of PRX003 in healthy volunteers by the end of June, and anticipates a study in patients with psoriasis in 2016. Beyond psoriasis, anti-MCAM antibodies may be useful for treating a variety of diseases, including progressive forms of Multiple Sclerosis.

Keep your Child Safe with Great Baby Proofing Tips for your House

All parents worry about the safety of their child. It’s natural to think about all the dangers that linger around your home. Some of the biggest hazards to a child’s safety are found in your own house! According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 2.3 million children are accidentally harmed and more than 2,500 children are killed annually due to housing dangers. To ensure your children are safe and sound, let’s look at how you can childproof your home.

Get Down to Their Level

When you’re childproofing your house, scope out your home on your hands and knees. Take notes on what is within your reach and what your baby might be enticed to play with or get into. Any cupboards, drawers, knickknacks, and hazardous items should be proofed or removed from the area. If you store dangerous substances such as poisons, cleaning products, medicines, or sharp objects in a lower cupboard or drawer, it’s best to move these items to an outof-reach location so that your child is always prevented from reaching these deadly home products. Also, any small objects can be a choking hazard to your child so remove any small items from their reach as well.

Windows and Doors

Any window or door must be considered in a home childproofing process. For windows, the safest window treatments

are cordless window coverings or use cord shorteners for curtain pulls. For any safety questions regarding blinds purchased prior to 2000, check out the Window Covering Safety Council online to ensure your child is safe in your home. Window guards are essential to prevent a child from opening the window too far. Any window that’s above the ground level should be proofed with a guard. When you think about securing your doors when children are living in your home, it’s important to secure your doors in a number of ways. First, for doors that children should not open, secure them with doorknob covers to prevent them from accessing forbidden territory. If you have sliding glass doors to patios and outdoor decks, purchase some decals to stick on them so children are less likely to run into them.

Electrical Outlets

Protect your electrical outlets from children with outlet covers that have a safety latch. Using small plug-in caps can be a danger to your children allowing your babies to chew and choke on them. Also, double check your exposed outlets that are hidden by furniture to guarantee your children will not be in danger when they are big enough to crawl behind the couch. If you use extension cords around the house, cover the unused sockets with electrical tape so that small fingers won’t be able to access them.

Furniture and Decorations

Furniture quickly becomes your child’s favorite thing to climb and play on. Always

remember that children need to be safe no matter where they decide to play. Store heavy items on the lower bookshelves and push heavy items such as your television far away from the shelving edge. If you can, screw furniture into the walls for a secure furnishing. Many household furnishings have sharp edges that can really hurt your children. Cover these sharp corners with furniture bumpers to soften the blow on inevitable accidents. Remember to completely close all drawers and cabinet doors so that a child’s fingers cannot get pinched. Also, remember to remove any breakables or fragile decorations from your child’s reach. Although we are just scratching the surface on home child proofing, remember that installing gates by stairs, purchasing fireplace protectors, and inspecting your home from deadly substances like lead are extremely important too. If you have any child proofing tips and tricks to share, please leave a comment below. Baby-proofing your house is something that’s necessary for keeping your children safe and protected from everyday dangers. Although the best device for child protection is supervision, it’s best to be safe than sorry.

Wisdom for

It’s The Party You Don’t Want to Miss! Thursday, AUG. 13 6:-8:30 p.m. Sycuan Resort 3007 Dehesa Rd. El Cajon, CA 92019


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. Now we move onto an account given to us of another day in the life of Jesus. Mark 2:1-12 “And again He entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that He was in the house. Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them. Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.” And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”--He said to the paralytic, I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go your way to your house.” Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!” By this time in Jesus’ life, His fame had spread through the whole northern region of Israel. Wherever He went, crowds were quick to gather. In our text we read of one such instance. The house to which Jesus had gone was packed now with people inside and out wanting to see Him and be ministered to in some way. Four men, (we do not know if they were friends, acquaintances, family members or complete strangers to this paralyzed man) believing that Jesus could help this man, picked up the man on his palate and carried him to the house where Jesus was. Because of the crowd they could not get the man to Jesus, so they went to the roof, removing the tiles and letting him down to where Jesus was. Their faith in Jesus made the men persistant. True faith works, as James makes clear in his letter. James 2:14-20 “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe--and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?” Notice what Jesus did, He first forgave the man his sins for this was the man’s greatest need, next to prove that He had the power to forgive sins He commanded the man to rise up and walk. In our text there are 3 things Jesus does to prove His deity. First, He forgives the man his sins. The religious leaders were correct when the stated, “Only God can forgive sins.” Second, Jesus knew their thoughts, only God knows the thoughts and intents of man’s heart. Psalm 94:11 “The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.” Matthew 9:4 “And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?” Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Finally, Jesus heals the man. Jesus still touches peoples lives, He has not changed in all these years.

UP AGAINST ITBuska with S.



“Fast. Fun. Easy.”

he last time I used the self checkout at Walmart I set my eyebrow pencil in its plastic-impossiblefor-humans-to-open packet on the glass scanner. Ching! The screen noted the item and I whisked it away, into the bag at the side of the scanner. Stuck a ten dollar bill in the easyto-find slot, got my change and smiled at the people still waiting in lines at the regular checkout counters. Today I was in a real hurry so I went straight to the self checkout on the second level - no waiting in line there. I scanned the towel; I scanned the three washcloths – one at a time, you can’t scan one and tell the machine to record it three times like they can at the regular registers; I scanned the hand towel and then I scanned the puffy, beige, light-as-afeather toss pillow. The towels and washcloths went easily into the plastic bags at the side of the scanner; the pillow was a bit of a tussle. It was the same size as the bag and kept popping out when I got one corner of it in. That’s when the real trouble started. You can’t talk to scanners. You can’t tell them you DID put the item in the bag, it just wouldn’t stay in. But they talk to you. With absolute certainty, from their powerful perch on the screen. “Put the last item in the bag.” I did! I stuffed the pillow into that bag with a vengeance and finally it stayed

put. So there! Not satisfied, the scanner changed its message. “There is an unbagged item on the scanner. Bag the item now.” I wanted to pay and get out of there but I couldn’t – not until the message cleared. I took the pillow out of the bag and set it back on the scanner and stuffed it back in the bag where IT HAD BEEN BAGGED. The message remained: “There is an unbagged item on the scanner. Bag the item now.” I tried re-scanning one of the washcloths to wake up the machine but it didn’t work so I did what anyone would do – I looked for an Attendant. As I turned around, I noticed a lady across from me, standing at another self checkout machine. Everything was in bags and it looked like she was finished but she looked frustrated - like she didn’t know what to do next. She was staring at the place on the machine that gives you your receipt – and then she started looking around, too. Just like me. There were three Attendants – at least they looked like Attendants – standing over at the other end of the checkout aisle. None were facing us; they were in a tight circle, talking animatedly to each other. The lady across from me waved at them. They didn’t see her. I waved both arms at them. They didn’t see. We called. We called louder. Finally one of the Attendants came over. She went to

the customer across from me – who, it turned out, was waiting for her receipt. It wasn’t coming out of its hole. The other two Attendants kept talking and not looking. I was even more in a hurry now - almost desperate enough to go downstairs and wait in line. But the scanner was still convinced I hadn’t bagged that pillow – or else that I had something else that I hadn’t bagged. I’m not a mind reader. The Attendant was still wrestling the other customer’s receipt out of the ink-splotted roll of tape. When she got it out she came over to my machine, waved her wand over the scanner and that was that! Whatever wasn’t bagged was recorded as bagged and I paid and hurried off to pick up my son... When I got home, I noticed the receipt was labeled: “Self Checkout.” Strange… I didn’t know they specially labeled them. And then I read the line below, “Fast.Fun.Easy.” Huh???

Grossmont Healthcare District honors 2015 Healthcare Heroes

With warmer weather and more outdoor activities, Hart Optical Co., 8685 La Mesa Blvd., La Mesa, is reminding East County residents about protecting your eyes from ultra violet radiation. “Protecting your eyes from UV rays is important because UV radiation can damage your cornea, the lens and other parts of your eyes, as well as your eyelids,” said Michael Emerson, owner of Hart Optical Co. “This exposure can lead to the development of certain types of cataracts as well as being a possible contributing factor of macular degeneration.” Emerson recommends choosing sunglasses with UV protection that blocks 99- to 100-percent of both UVA and UVB rays. The color and the degree of darkness of sunglass lenses have nothing to do with the sunglasses’ ability to block the UV rays, he said. Stay away from sunglasses without this coverage. Also, consider close-fitting sunglasses with wide, wraparound lenses

MAY 28-JUNE 3, 2015

An eye surgeon, a retired physician, twin sisters, a parent of adult children with disabilities and the first male president of a hospital’s auxiliary were among local volunteers recognized with 2015 Healthcare Hero awards from the Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD). Now in its ninth year, the Healthcare Heroes is GHD’s annual awards program that honors volunteers who help advance the delivery of quality healthcare in the East County region.” This year’s honorees included: -- Dr. Andrew Alongi of San Carlos, a retired physician and member of the La Mesa Lions Club, volunteers with International Catholic Families at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in El Cajon. Specializing in internal medicine and geriatrics, Alongi, 71, provided for the health care needs of East County residents for four decades until his retirement in 2014. From 2009 to 2013, he volunteered at the El Cajon clinic of Volunteers in Medicine, a nonprofit that brings together medical professionals and patients who do not have health insurance. -- Anjelika Cannon and Veronika Cannon of El Cajon have volunteered about 1,500 hours together at Sharp Grossmont Hospital since June 2012 at the end of their ninth grade year at Steel Canyon High School. Now in 12th grade, the twins help train new junior volunteers and participate at the American Heart Association’s Heart & Stroke Walk. They were adopted at age 4 in September 2011 by Amy and Dan Cannon from an orphanage in the small Russian city of Kudymkar, near southwestern Siberia.

Submissions are welcomed for this column. Press releases can be sent to or faxed to (619) 461‑3151. Press releases may be edited due to space considerations.

-- Michael Dutcher of San Diego is a volunteer at Noah Homes, a residential community in Spring Valley for adults with developmental disabilities. He began volunteering at Noah Homes in 2010 after his daughter Jane had moved there (she now lives at another facility). Michael’s son Tommy has lived at Noah Homes since 2009. His service includes escorting residents on field trips, assisting with on-site activities and picking up donated home goods. The 79-year-old was named Noah Homes’ 2014 Volunteer of the Year. -- Richard Hart of La Mesa has volunteered more than 4,500 hours at Grossmont Hospital during the past 11 years. The retired high school teacher (he taught English and Social Studies at El Cajon Valley High School for 38 years), served as president of the Grossmont Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary in 2011 and 2012. He will forever be known as the Auxiliary’s first male president since the Auxiliary was founded in 1952, prior to the hospital’s opening in 1955. Today, Hart, 72, serves on statewide committees with organizations that represent more than 100,000 hospital volunteers in California. His father, Benton Hart, also worked for the Grossmont Union High School District serving as Helix High School’s first principal from the first day of school in 1952 to 1975. -- Dr. David J. Najafi of San Diego is a practicing vitroretinal surgeon with a private practice based in La Mesa called Alliance Retinal Consultants, Inc. Since 2010 as a volunteer physician for Project Access San Diego (PASD), he has helped restoring and preserving the gift of eyesight to uninsured or under-insured East County residents who cannot afford specialty surgeries. He donates one or more surgeries nearly every month at various surgical centers in San Diego and La Mesa. His patients suffer from diabetic retinopathy, ocular tumors and other diseases of the eye. The 2015 awards were presented on Wednesday, May 20, at Steele Canyon Golf Club in Jamul.

MAY 28-JUNE 3, 2015



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


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

1.89% Financing

30 DAY



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!
