District Attorney Summer Stephan Establishes Grossmont College Student Takes the Stage at Cygnet Theatre New Animal Cruelty Prosecution Unit

Unit Recognizes Significant Link to Other Violent Crimes SAN DIEGO — San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan (pictured below, at podium) announced Wednesday, May 30, that she is launching the office’s first-ever Animal Cruelty Prosecution Unit, which will provide prosecutorial consistency countywide, investigative support and dedicated expertise for animal abuse cases. Since there is a strong link between animal abuse and violent crimes against people – particularly children and domestic violence – the unit will reside within the DA’s Family Protection Division. The unit will work closely with police, Sheriff ’s deputies, Department of Animal Services, animal control officers, the San Diego Humane Society, and others to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty cases vertically (one prosecutor handling the case from beginning to end). “Animal cruelty can be horrific. It is also one of the earliest and most dramatic indicators that an individual may be developing a pattern of seeking power and control through abusing others,” said District Attorney Summer Stephan. “When animals in a home are abused or neglected, it is a warning sign that others in the household may be in danger.” The San Diego County Department of Animal Services investigates cases of alleged cruelty in San Diego County and will be a strong partner with the new unit. “The creation of the Animal Cruelty Unit is an important step in holding people accountable for their actions,” said Dan DeSousa, Director of the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services. “Together with the animal control and humane officers, the District Attorney’s Office will now help protect those without a voice, namely the animals in our

communities.” The San Diego Humane Society will partner with the DA’s Office on investigating animal cruelty in the city of San Diego beginning on July 1. “We are excited the District Attorney’s Office is taking this giant step forward. This will allow all the agencies to coordinate better, to share information and truly look out for those who do not have a voice of their own,” said Stephan MacKinnon, Chief of Humane Law Enforcement at the San Diego Humane Society. The link between violence to people and violence to animals is well-documented by research, both nationally and internationally. Violence to animals is a predictor that the abuser may become violent to people. Studies show that animal abuse is more prevalent in homes that experience child abuse and domestic

violence, and 43 percent of school shooters have animal abuse in their background. Often, animal abuse crimes also have a nexus to mental illness. Since 2014, the District Attorney’s Office has prosecuted 248 animal crueltyrelated cases, many of which resulted in lengthy prison sentences for defendants with previous criminal histories. With approximately 68 percent of American households having a pet (82.5 million pets), the potential for a connection between animal abuse and human violence is prevalent. Cherished pets are more likely to be used as tools of manipulation by an abuser. They may get caught in the crossfire of violence toward people or the batterer may target the pet in order to gain silence

Grossmont College Theatre Arts student Demetrius Clayton makes his professional debut in Cygnet Theatre’s production of “The Wind and the Breeze.” EL CAJON — Grossmont College Theatre Arts student Demetrius Clayton has seen a bit of the world as a Marine Corps vet, but he describes his first professional role in the Cygnet Theatre production of “The Wind and the Breeze” as a real jaw-dropper. “It’s been life-changing; it really has opened my eyes to how much I have left to accomplish as an actor,” he said about his role as Shantell, a fast-food worker with aspirations to win fame as a hip-hop emcee, in the rap-infused work by Juilliardtrained playwright Nathan Alan Davis, which continues through June 10. “I have been around so much talent it’s really cool to just soak that up and sometimes, I catch myself doing that.” Since mid-May, Clayton has been living and breathing stage acting five days a week with the Old Town regional theater company in a production led by Cygnet associate artistic director and Grossmont College Theatre Arts adjunct instructor Rob Lutfy. Another connection to Grossmont College is Theatre Arts student Kian Kline Chilton, who is working alongside Lutfy as his assistant director in the world premiere of Davis’ coming-home play, produced at Cygnet with the support of a Bill and Judy Garrett Finish Line Commission. Bill Garrett is president of the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Focus is on Candidates, But Props Also Offer Key Choices

V

ery rightly, the focus in this ongoing California primary election season is on candidates for offices from Congress to the governor’s office in the state Capitol’s “Horseshoe” suite. But this spring’s ballot also features five significant propositions, and if voters overlook them, they may come to rue the inattention. No, the spring propositions (no initiatives here) are not as sexy as what the fall ballot will bring, with heated campaigns upcoming on everything from gasoline taxes to carving California into three states and an attempt by paint companies to make taxpayers bail them out of liability for cleaning up problems caused by lead in their products. That timing is by Democratic Party design: The party’s legislators three years ago adopted a law putting all initiative propositions – those making the ballot via voter signatures – into the November general election, with none contested in the primary. Their thinking was (still is) that general elections bring out many more voters than primaries, giving liberal causes a better chance in the fall. But propositions placed on the ballot by the Legislature still go to the primary ballot. So we now face five measures lawmakers want passed. But voters might hesitate over at least some. Take Prop. 70, the product of a political deal allowing the state’s cap-and-trade program to continue long after its previous expiration date last year. In this system, the state auctions off to corporations a limited number of permits to produce greenhouse gas pollutants, sometimes collecting more than $3 billion a year. The money is supposed to be used for reducing the same kinds of gases in other places, but some cash has lately been diverted to the ongoing bullet train project and other causes. In order to get capand-trade extended to 2030, Gov. Jerry Brown and Democrats agreed to require two-thirds legislative majorities after 2024 in deciding whether to spend that money and on what. That compromise flies in the face of an earlier initiative that did away with the prior two-thirds-majority requirement for passing state budgets. If a majority vote is good enough to decide on spending the many more billions of dollars in the general fund budget, why require a super-majority for this one cash source? Despite its support from Brown and the state Chamber of Commerce, this deal makes little sense and voters may want to nix it. There’s also Prop. 68, a $4 billion parks and water quality bond measure including $200 million for restoration of the Salton Sea in the state’s southeastern corner. California’s largest lake, a product of a 1905 flood on the Colorado River, the Salton Sea has evaporated gradually since San Diego’s water agency stopped supplying it early this year. That is causing new levels of dust pollution in the air of the Imperial Valley and threatens the habitats of hundreds of migratory bird species. Creating ponds and channels around that lake to control dust is just one of many projects in this proposed bond; others include $370 million for ground water recharges, $725 million for parks in neighborhoods that now have few, $218 million for state park restoration and $443 million for “climate preparedness.” Voters usually go almost automatically for water bonds, but may hesitate this time after watching the state Water Commission take years to fund projects using money from a prior bond passed in 2014. Many will see the other three measures on this ballot as virtual nobrainers. Prop. 69 would confine use of new transportation tax revenues, including gasoline taxes, only to transportation. These funds have occasionally been diverted elsewhere, infuriating some. Similar propositions have passed previously, but are sometimes circumvented. The simplest proposal here is Prop. 71, which sets the effective date for all winning ballot measures five days after election results are certified, usually about month after Election Day. There is no substantial opposition to this one. And there’s Prop. 72, allowing new rain-capture systems to be exempted from property tax reassessments. The aim is to encourage property owners to catch more rain water, helping the state’s water supply. All of which adds up to a proposition list that includes a few relatively minor measures, but also a couple that require significant decisions.

The Dangers of SecondHand Smoke

Q

.

How dangerous is secondhand smoke? My son smokes in the house and it is annoying.

A

.

Secondhand smoke—also called environmental tobacco smoke (ETS)—is made up of the “sidestream” smoke from the end of a cigarette, pipe, or cigar, and the “mainstream” smoke that is exhaled. Nonsmokers exposed to secondhand smoke absorb the same 4,000 chemical compounds that smokers do. More than 60 of these compounds are known or suspected to cause cancer. About one in a hundred deaths worldwide is caused by secondhand smoke, which kills an estimated 600,000 people a year, according to World Health Organization (WHO) researchers. Secondhand smoke causes increased cardiovascular risks by damaging blood vessels, decreasing your ability to exercise and altering blood cholesterol levels. Some research indicates that people exposed to a spouse’s cigarette smoke for several decades are about 20 percent more likely to have lung cancer. Those who are exposed long-term to secondhand smoke in the workplace or social settings may increase their risk of lung cancer by about 25 percent. Some of the components found in tobacco smoke that are known to cause cancer or are suspected to be carcinogenic include: formaldehyde, arsenic, cadmium, benzene and ethylene oxide. Here are a few other chemicals in tobacco smoke along with their effects: ammonia (irritates lungs), carbon monoxide (hampers breathing), methanol (toxic when inhaled) and hydrogen cyanide (interferes with respiration). Throughout the world, governments are taking action against smoking in public places, both indoors and outdoors. Smoking is either banned or restricted in public transportation. Several local communities have enacted nonsmokers’ rights laws, most of which are stricter than state laws. Although air-conditioning may remove the visible smoke in your home, it can’t remove the particles that continue to circulate and are hazardous to your health, so don’t delude yourself that running the AC is the answer to secondhand smoke dangers. To solve your problem, you should try to get your son to seek help in fighting his addiction to nicotine. There are many programs available. Call your doctor for some recommendations. Meanwhile, for your own health, you should insist that he not smoke in your house.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Researchers Report Synthetic Compound Reduces Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms in Mouse Models

D

rugs available to treat Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a leading cause of neurological disability affecting more than 2.5 million people worldwide, alter the body’s immune system to reduce disease symptoms and disability. They do not induce, however, repair of damaged axons, the long threadlike parts of nerve cells that conduct impulses between cells or restore myelin, the protective sheath that surrounds the axons of neurons essential for the proper functioning of the brain and spinal cord. Researchers at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), now report that indazole chloride, a synthetic compound that acts on one form of the body’s estrogen receptors previously shown to reduce MS symptoms in mouse models, is able to do both: remyelinate (add new myelin to) damaged axons and alter the immune system. “While additional translational studies are required, indazole chloride and similar drugs may represent a promising new avenue of treating the underlying loss of myelin in Multiple Sclerosis,” said Seema TiwariWoodruff, an associate professor of biomedical sciences in the School of Medicine, who led the mouse study. In MS myelin sheath is damaged. As myelin is lost, nerve sig-

nals slow down or stop, affecting the patient’s vision, movement, memory, and more. Oligodendrocytes are the mylenating cells of the central nervous system. Normally, oligodendrocyte precursor cells mature into myelin-producing oligodendrocytes when myelin is damaged. This process often fails, however, in MS, resulting in permanent damage. The UCR researchers found the change in the immune system provides a protective shield for oligodendrocytes, preventing this damage and possibly even reversing it. “With remyelination of axons, nerve impulses travel faster than before, thus decreasing Multiple Sclerosis disability,” TiwariWoodruff said. “As a potential therapy for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis, indazole chloride may represent the first in a novel class of drugs capable of reducing disability burden in patients with MS. We still don’t know the mechanism of action of preclinical therapies like indazole chloride. Our report aims to understand how drugs like indazole chloride are working so we can make more selective and efficacious drugs.” Indazole chloride, a ligand, stimulates ER?, an estrogen receptor in the body. Indazole chloride is an attractive drug because it does not produce the negative side-effects of estrogen therapy. Because ER? are present not just in oligodendrocytes but also in microglia, neurons, and T-cells, indazole chloride may

ddean@echerald.com have therapeutic benefits not just for MS, but also other diseases. Tiwari-Woodruff explained that while inflammation causes a lot of damage in several diseases, not all inflammation is harmful. Beneficial inflammation is required to fight infectious disease and speeds up wound healing by clearing dead cells and tissue. Indazole chloride reduces “bad” inflammation and promotes “good” inflammation, thereby protecting new oligodendrocytes while they remyelinate. Tiwari-Woodruff and her group found that indazole chloride accomplishes this by strengthening the production of a molecule called “CXCL1,” which makes oligodendrocytes resistant to “bad” inflammatory signals.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE

with Pastor Drew

The Reason Jesus Said What He Said

G

Part V

reetings precious people, this week we begin a new series examining the reasons Jesus said what He said. In this series we will examine many statements Jesus made during His time here on earth and then look at the reason for which He made the statement. When Jesus spoke, He spoke the Word of God and the Bible tells us the purpose and function of the Word of God: 2Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is God-breathed, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfected, thoroughly furnished to every good work.” Hebrews 4:12-13 “For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things are naked and opened to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” Everything that Jesus spoke was for a reason; He wasted no words; did not talk merely to talk like some do today. Many times we are told very clearly the reason for which He said what He did, other times we must search deeper. In John 14:27 Jesus said “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Once again the questions we must ask are: to whom did Jesus say this to and why? What did He mean by this? As we saw last week from the verses prior to this, Jesus was talking to His disciples at the setting of what we call the Last Supper. The hearts of the disciples were heavily troubled because they realized that those things Jesus had been telling them for the last several months of His impending death was now at hand. They loved Jesus and had become dependent upon Him along with having high hopes for Him and themselves. Now all that was about to come crashing down, never to be realized (or so they thought). The disciples (much like you and I ) could only see what was right in from of them, unable to see beyond the moment; struggle with taking God at His Word; that He knows what is best for us and the plans that He has for us are far better than our own. The verses just previous to our text tells us why it was important for Jesus to go away. John 14:25-26 “I have spoken these things to you, being present with you. But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you.” By coming in the form of a man, Jesus placed certain restrictions on Himself, He could not be at all places at once; He could only be with the disciples when present with them and He could not be in them. But the Holy Spirit would not have such restrictions, He could and would be every place at any given time and would come to take up His abode within the disciples and everyone who repents of sin and places their trust in Jesus Christ. He would also teach us and lead us into all righteousness. The verses that follow give greater insight to this, John 14:28-31 “You have heard how I said to you, I go away and I am coming to you again. If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, I go to the Father, for My Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens you might believe. I shall no longer speak many things with you, for the ruler of this world comes, and he has nothing in Me. But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father has given Me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go away from here.”

GROSSMONT COLLEGE’S CLAYTON MAKES PROFESSIONAL STAGE DEBUT, cont’d from p.2

College District Governing Board. The Garretts support Cygnet with an eye toward discovering new work and diverse voices. Bill Garrett is president of the GrossmontCuyamaca Community College District Governing Board. The Garretts support Cygnet with an eye toward discovering new work and diverse voices. Clayton, whose recent roles have been in Grossmont College’s productions of “Treasure Island, “ “Taming of the Shrew,” and “A Piece of My Heart,” a play about six women experiencing the Vietnam War, was drawn to the modern themes of “The Wind and the Breeze” and its focus on hip hop. I was told Cygnet was having auditions for a hip hop play,” said the 23-year-old who served a four-year enlistment in the Marine Corps as an aircraft maintenance administration specialist. “Since I was already taking rap as a serious art form at the time, I felt like the play was my calling.” In April, Clayton and other cast members braved freezing conditions to meet with the playwright who was presenting a reading of “The Wind and the Breeze” at the Milwaukee

Repertory Theater, one of the leading rep companies in the country. “I wasn’t prepared for the brutal cold weather, but other than that, it was wonderful,” Clayton said. “Rehearsing with Nathan was a very easygoing and organic process, and it helped the cast build connections in a short time, furthering the chemistry between us.” Also at the Milwaukee Rep, Clayton saw “Until the Flood,” a one-person show written and performed by Dael Orlandersmith, a 2002 Pulitzer Prize finalist who brought to the stage the reaction of Ferguson, Mo., residents to the police shooting in 2014 of 18-year-old Michael Brown. “Ferguson is just 15 minutes way from my hometown of University City and that play flooded me with emotions – I couldn’t stop the tears,” Clayton said. Growing up in the St. Louis suburbs, Clayton said his father made it clear from the time he was little that after high school, his choices were either to go to college or join the military. Bitten by the acting bug in elementary school when he played celebrity guest Ray

Charles in a staged production of the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, Clayton’s dream school was the American Conservatory of Theater or ACT, in San Francisco. But lacking the grades for admission, Clayton’s path led to the Marine Corps. Just weeks after his discharge in 2016, Clayton enrolled at Grossmont College and fell in love with the Theatre Arts program. “I feel like Grossmont really prepared me well for Cygnet,” said Clayton, who plans to transfer to a university for a bachelor’s in theater arts, then to pursue a Master of Fine Arts at ACT, ranked among the top five MFA programs in the nation with such notable alumni as Annette Bening and Denzel Washington. “Without Grossmont, I wouldn’t have had the blueprint to take on the audition for my role as Shantell. I killed it in that audition and Grossmont gave me the tools.” The Wind and the Breeze continues at Cygnet Theatre Wednesdays through Sundays through June 10. Tickets are available at the box office at 4040 Twiggs St. in San Diego and online.

SPORTS BEAT with Steve Dolan SMILE-BREAKS with Sheila Buska High School All Stars Set to Tripping away to the desert Play at Petco Park

T

he San Diego Padres, in conjunction with CIF San Diego Section, have announced another All-Star Game coming to Petco Park. On Wednesday, June 6, the Padres will honor top local high school baseball players at the inaugural Padres High School All-Star Night presented by FOX Sports San Diego. The event will feature a high school home run derby and allstar game following the conclusion of the Padres vs. Atlanta Braves game at 12:40 p.m. The prep game will feature an East/ West format with the derby beginning approximately one hour after the final out of the Padres game. “We are extremely excited to revive the high school all-star game and host an event that will showcase some of the tremendous talent within the San Diego community,” said Padres Chief Operating Officer Erik Greupner. “Whether it’s displaying local high school baseball and softball teams at the CIF San Diego Section wall at Petco Park, honoring coaches that help mold these young players through the Coach of the Week program, or providing the experience of a lifetime by playing in a Major League ballpark, the Padres remain deeply committed to our local prep community.” The Home Run Derby will feature four players from both the East and West, including Trevor Hazelhurst (Granite Hills) and Garret Nielsen (Christian). The nine-inning all-star game will include 48 players (24 per team) as selected by the baseball coach’s advisory and select media. Any ticket for the June 6 Padres vs. Braves game is good for entry in to the high school all-star event.

y doughnut sits contentedly on its napkin on the passenger seat beside me. My coffee waits patiently in the cupholder. No coffee or doughnuts for the Buick; it has a tank full of $3.59 a gallon gas to keep it happy. And I’m heading to Palm Desert for a long weekend. The plants have been watered, the groceries bought for the stay-at-homes, and family and friends arranged for to stay with Paul—or more to the point, to take him to Starbucks, the mall, church, dinner and to put it bluntly, spoil him rotten. He is not a stay-at-home kind’a guy. So now it’s me ’n my Buick Regal Turbocharge leaving for Palm Desert with my most favoritest coffee in the world and my most favoritest doughnut for traveling— the glazed old-fashioned, so easy to peel off pieces of the chunky outer rim while driving, without having to look down away from the road. I’m taking the back route, from Interstate 15 to CA-79S, then to CA-371E which leads to CA-74E which twists and turns for miles driving down to CA-111 and Palm Desert. By the time I get from home to the I-15, the coffee has mellowed to a pleasant almosthot-but-not-too-hot temp. The first sip slides down smoothly, surprising me with its deli-

ciously mellow coffee flavor. I break off pieces of doughnut occasionally as I sail along the freeway at eighty miles an hour. Gotta keep up with traffic, you know. After the exit onto CA-79 I start running into orange signs warning of road work ahead. Well, I didn’t literally run into them. I dodged them quite skillfully. Smugly their comrades-in-signage told me that all fines would be doubled in construction zones. I guess you have to pay extra to be slowed up by construction. Next up: those yellow signs telling me I might be hit by rocks sliding down off the hillside. Now that’s encouraging. Should I go faster? Slower? Who knows? But I’m on alert. After that, it’s the deer. On CA -371, the deer are taking over. Or so the sign says. Fake signs! Fake signs! There was not one bit of road work. No heavy equipment rumbled across the lanes; no good-looking flagmen or flagwomen held up those lollypop slow/stop signs. Not a single rock crashed into my car. And deer? I guess they were all on vacation in the Alps. But then. . . There are some other signs. You see them everywhere, those yellow signs with the huge black arrows on them. They don’t say anything, not a word— but you know they’re going to throw you a curve. On this trip to the desert, those wordless signs came through with

more curves than a major league pitcher in the playoffs. In spite of all this, I arrived in Palm Desert two hours ahead of check-in time, planning to stop for lunch before I went to the Best Western PLUS. The best-laid plans. . .went out the window. I stopped in and registered early and the desk clerk said they had a room ready and I could check in now. She gave me a second floor room and by the way, the elevator is out of commission. What can a lady do? I lugged my suitcase up the flight of stairs, slid my card in the slot, opened the door and Shock! There wasn’t anybody lying naked on the bed, but the bed itself was naked, its sheets lying in heaps on the floor at its feet. The room was a disaster! If this was “ready”—well, obviously not.

and compliance from human victims. Families and communities are at risk when animal abuse is ignored or unreported alongside family violence. District Attorney Summer Stephan has already begun a countywide conversation among professionals who work in the field, in order to identify gaps and needs in the animal abuse investigation field. The District Attorney’s goal is to collaborate and partner with other professionals and disciplines in order to recommend and use best practices across the county to best document and investigate animal abuse crimes, prevent abuse, and hold perpetrators accountable. Deputy District Attorney Karra Reedy has been assigned to lead the unit, which will include specific prosecutors in each of the DA’s branch offices as well. Deputy DA Reedy is the office’s subject matter expert in animal cruelty and has prosecuted numerous such cases over the past several years, including one recent case of an elderly couple who hoarded 92 Yorkshire Terrier and Yorkie-mix dogs in a fecesfilled home in Poway, and 48 additional dogs at a second location. Putting an increased emphasis on animal abuse crimes recognizes that the same behaviors that harm animals also harm humans. Early intervention, community education, and public awareness will be of key importance in the roll-out of the new Animal Cruelty Unit. Finally, keeping companion animals out of the hands of convicted animal abusers continues to be a concern for animal advocates across the U.S. The District Attorney’s Office will explore
