Record Number of Degrees and Certificates Awarded EL CAJON — The impact on lives that Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges have is never more apparent than on commencement day, when speakers talk about their first steps taken in their academic journeys and the encouragement they’ve received along the way. And so it was at last week’s commencements, where two alums and two new graduates told audiences their personal stories, giving compelling accounts of their college experiences. In addition to heartfelt speeches, commencement at both colleges was a day for the record books. Beating a record set just a year ago, Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges awarded 4,833 degrees and certificates to the class of 2017, a 13 percent increase over 2016. With many students receiving multiple credentials, 1,581 graduates earned 3,744 degrees and certificates June 7 at Grossmont College. At Cuyamaca College, which held its commencement the following day, about 650 were

High School Graduates Earn American Welding Society Certification By Nicole DeSimone

For The East County Herald EL CAJON — In the late afternoon of Wednesday, May 31, family and friends of graduates of the El Cajon Valley High School’s Career Technical Education Welding and Fabrication Program gathered in the school’s welding facility to watch the students receive their hard-earned American Welding Society (AWS) certification. This certificate grants them the status of being industry certified welders. Both staff members and the AWS representatives spoke on the student’s credential as a prestigious feat, one that tremendously sets them apart in the industry, highlighting their work ethic in completing the rigorous three-year curriculum. The recipients were also provided with Senate certificates of recognition from California State Senator Joel Anderson. Anderson later stated, “These students are the future talent of our workforce; their unyielding dedication toward mastering their craft combined with the quality of this program creates so much opportunity for them and fills a great need for employers and our economy.” El Cajon Valley High School Vice Principal Nick Williams proclaimed, “It’s a great connection for the kids to know that they’re being supported, more than just by us, the teach-

Local Organist/Pianist Celebrates ‘Golden Jubilee’

LA MESA — ‘A national treasure right in our midst!’ That’s the incomparable Valerie Victor, organist/pianist at The Table: United Church of Christ of La Mesa (UCCLM). Born in National City (as were her mother and grandmother), Valerie was seven when she started to play the piano, eight when her elementary school music teacher asked that she not return to class – it was ‘too easy’ for her. aken on as the teacher’s private student for the next seven years, young Valerie thrived. Another teacher followed, working with her for the next 25-30 years. Once a month a “bonus” was added: organ lessons. Valerie became the organist for Lemon Grove Congregational at the age of 14, then at East San Diego Presbyterian at 18. Then, in June 1967, she arrived at UCCLM and their journey together began. Her new organ, by the way, had been “purchased” with S&H Green Stamps. Area schools, theaters and choruses also benefited from her musical gifts, among the San Diego Junior Theater (Musical Director) and Starlight Opera (accompanist). Valerie worked for the Grossmont and Cajon Valley School Districts for 40-45 years, playing for high school choirs and glee clubs and Greenfield Elementary’s musical theater group. Mother of four, grandmother of six and great-grandmother of seven, Valerie describes her fifty years at UCCLM as “a blessing. I have loved every minute of it.” She looks forward to many more years there. The people of UCCLM return the compliment and will highlight and celebrate Valerie’s gifts at a special musical service at 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 25. Everyone is invite to join them. The church is located at 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942. For more information, call 619.464.1519 or

Williams added, “These young men and

women will play a critical role in California’s future.” Recipient of the American Welding Society certification, Matios Murad, shared his views regarding both the intrinsic and instrumental value of the school’s program, saying, “It’s preparing us for the future, to be welders, to make good money, [and to] help our families.” For more information regarding the American Welding Society, visit

RECORD NUMBERS SET AT GROSSMONT AND CUYAMACA COLLEGES, cont’d from p.2 awarded 1,089 degrees and certificates. Graduation balloons bobbed in the air and personalized mortarboards could be spotted amid a sea of graduates who cheered and applauded at every opportunity. After congratulatory whoops to graduates at both colleges, Chancellor Cindy Miles quizzed the students on the etymology of the word “graduate.” “It’s from the Latin, ‘gradus,’ a step climbed,” she said. “You are taking a big step this evening and you have other big steps before you. Go do the wonderful things we know you will.” Governing Board President Bill Garrett also congratulated graduates on a job well done and encouraged them to act with integrity in their future endeavors. “Go forward with integrity and make this country and this world a better place,” he said. Grossmont College commencement An emotional speech at Grossmont College’s 56th annual ceremony was given by student speaker Danielle P. Santana, an honors graduate who earned an associate degree in Child Development and plans to transfer to Point Loma Nazarene University to pursue a bachelor’s in Integrated Studies with an emphasis in education. The East County native – the first in her family to earn a college degree – has her sights set on teaching young children, a passion she discovered during her first semester at Grossmont College. Her interest in teaching children was piqued by Child Development courses, and cemented by her experience as a student worker at the Child Development Center. Santana spoke about hardships her parents endured and how they struggled to provide a better life for their children. Her father emigrated from Mexico; her mother escaped an abusive home, and both came from poverty-stricken backgrounds. “To every child of parents who fought against boundaries and borders to obtain the promise that you would be standing here today, I say to you now publicly in honor of them – congratulations, today you make them proud,” she said, ending her speech with tearful thanks to a big brother she called her hero and to her parents. The keynote commencement speech was delivered by Grossmont Healthcare District Board member and retired registered nurse Virginia Hall, who earned her associate degree in nursing at Grossmont College in 1978. Hall started her healthcare career in 1973 and worked until 2004 at local hospitals, emergency rooms, clinics and research facilities. In November 2016, Hall was elected to the board of the Grossmont

Borrowing from self-help author Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich,” Hall advised graduates to remember the three P’s: patience, persistence and perspiration, and relayed her personal story as lessons learned. “While you may be sick of school right now, my earnest prayer for you is that you will continue to love learning, either through continued formal or do-it-yourself education,” said Hall, who has worked in real estate since 2003 and served in 2016 as president of the Santee Chamber of Commerce. “Get involved in your community. It can open many doors for you.”

Cuyamaca College commencement

The keynote commencement speaker at Cuyamaca College’s 39th Annual Commencement was Janet Leak-Garcia, once a minimum-wage earner who graduated from Cuyamaca College in 2000, then went on to earn a doctorate in genetics. She is now a policy analyst working to protect millions of acres under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Forest Service. As a single parent in her mid-30s, Leak-Garcia overcame economic and physical challenges to earn her associate degree from Cuyamaca College with a 4.0 GPA, then went on for a bachelor’s in biology from San Diego State University and a doctorate from the Genetics, Genomics and Bioinformatics program at the University of California, Riverside. “If I was to succeed in completing a degree, I needed a launching pad where I could start college and be mentored at the same time,” said LeakGarcia, who credited Disabled Students Program and Services (DSPS) for helping her overcome hurdles that

included a vision disorder and, unknown to her at the time, Asperger’s, a syndrome on the autism spectrum. “I lived closer to other schools, but I chose Cuyamaca because of the care they showed me as I inquired about programs. Best decision ever.” She also thanked her science professors, who recognized her promise early on in spite of her own self-doubt. “I didn’t see it at the time, but my biology and chemistry professors, Kathryn Nette and Laurie LeBlanc, sure did, and they let me know that,” said Leak-Garcia, encouraging graduates to stay true to their dreams. “And sensing that I was having a hard time believing them, they told me again… and again. I love them both for that.” The student commencement speech was given by honors graduate Jovonda Reina, a former foster youth who earned her associate degree from Cuyamaca College’s psychology program and will be transferring to San Diego State University to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s in counseling. Accepted out of high school in the Naval Academy, Reina left after 18 months, finding herself still dealing with emotional issues from her youth. At Cuyamaca College, Reina said she found the support she needed. “Here at Cuyamaca, I felt at home and welcomed the moment I stepped on campus and that I was finally in the right place at the right time,” said Reina, who started at Cuyamaca in fall 2016, and aspires to becoming a mental health counselor for teens and to help eradicate the stigma of mental health issues in the black community. “I cannot thank this place enough for helping me realize my potential and molding me into a better student, a better thinker and a better person,” she said.

t 64, the passion still comes through when Antonio Villaraigosa talks about California. “I haven’t stopped wanting to change the world,” he declares while explaining why he’s running for governor. “I want to restore the

state’s luster.” Speaker of the state Assembly for almost three years and mayor of Los Angeles for eight, Villaraigosa spent 56 days over the last year touring parts of California that major politicians rarely see, and he says he learned a lot. Unlike Richard Riordan, his immediate predecessor as L.A.’s mayor, Villaraigosa did not return from his “listening tour” talking about “strange places” he visited. Rather, he’s now eager to help uplift the many places where he says Californians are hurting. “In many areas, the recession is still on. People feel the economy is rigged and just doesn’t work for them,” he said in an interview. “We need to improve the economy in the Central Valley and the Inland Empire (Riverside and San Bernardino counties) and we need to improve educational opportunities for young people there. By 2025, we will have 1 million less college graduates in this state than we need for the sophisticated jobs to be filled.” Villaraigosa, out of public office since 2013, also wants to improve the state’s plumbing, capturing more storm water in new reservoirs, recycling more discarded water and getting water supplies to places that receive too little. One of at least four major 2018 candidates for governor, Villaraigosa is careful never to utter a critical word about current Gov. Jerry Brown. But his improved plumbing probably would not include Brown’s pet project, a putative $40 billion set of water tunnels aiming to bring Northern California river water under the delta of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers to farms and cities further south. “We (the state) never came through on promises we made in 1999 to build at least two more dams and reservoirs,” he said. One of those would be the proposed Temperance Flat Dam on the San Joaquin in Fresno and Madera counties. Villaraigosa said that dam alone would significantly cut the more than 1 million acre feet of storm and snowfall runoff that flowed to sea from California this winter and spring. Villaraigosa runs second among Democrats in recent polls and fundraising reports. He was Assembly speaker when state government committed – with no firm timetable – to building that dam. He’s also aware that while he broke one glass ceiling as the first Latino mayor of the state’s biggest city in the modern era, he has two more barriers left to shatter. He knows no Latino has served as governor since Romualdo Pacheco in 1875 and that no former Los Angeles mayor ever has. One, Sam Yorty, tried twice during the 1960s and early ’70s. And he knows he’ll have to overcome the historic animosity for Los Angeles that persists in parts of Northern California. To do that, he said, “You have to show people you are who you say you are. I can say ‘Go, Giants,’ for example, but only when they’re not playing the Dodgers. People have to see you care and you’ll get your share of the vote.” Villaraigosa starts with an advantage among Latinos, who voted for him in 80 percent proportions when he ran for mayor. “I’m used to breaking barriers,” he said. “No Latino before me had been elected mayor of Los Angeles. By the end of my two terms, people didn’t talk about me as a Latino mayor, but just a mayor, and that was a good thing.” Villaraigosa, like rival Gavin Newsom, the current lieutenant governor and ex-mayor of San Francisco, knows he’ll have to overcome his record of womanizing. “I’ve taken responsibility for that,” he said. “I’ve acknowledged that I made mistakes. And after apologizing and healing with my family (but not getting back together with ex-wife Corina), I went back to work. People will have to decide this race based on a broad spectrum of factors and I know that will be one.”

eurons have long enjoyed the spotlight in neuroscience—and for good reason: they are incredibly important cellular actors. But, increasingly, star-shaped support cells called astrocytes are being seen as more than bit players in the brain’s rich pageant. Salk researchers reported a new method of deriving astrocytes from stem cells, opening

tory features. The protocol, which is described in the June 6, 2017, issue of Stem Cell Reports, offers a faster and more effective way to obtain astrocytes for brain research that could yield breakthroughs for treatments of such diverse conditions as stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s or psychiatric disorders. “This work represents a big leap forward in our ability to model neurological disorders

• Pneumococcal vaccine for pneumococcal diseases that cause infections in the lungs, blood, brain and ear. Pneumococcal diseases can take various forms, including pneumonia and meningitis. • Zoster vaccine, which protects against shingles, a painful skin disease caused by the chickenpox virus awakening from a dormant state to attack your body again. There may be other vaccines to consider because your health, job, or lifestyle may put you at higher risk for certain diseases. For example, people with diabetes should get the Hepatitis B vaccine. If you are planning to travel out of the country, find out which vaccines are recommended or required. Visit the CDC Travel Health site to learn more. Go to: http:// In childhood, we are given vaccinations that provide immunity against a broad range of diseases. Recent evidence indicates that the immunity conferred by childhood vaccinations may diminish as we age. So, it is now possible to receive a supplementary booster injection for these childhood diseases. Aging weakens our immune systems making us vulnerable to infections, which are more dangerous to older people. Vaccines can help boost the immune systems of older people. Immunizations teach your body how to defend itself when viruses or bacteria invade it. They expose you to small amounts of viruses or bacteria that have been weakened or killed. Your immune system then learns to recognize and attack the infection if you are exposed to it later in life. As a result, you will either not become ill or have a milder infection. Our immune system is a complicated network of cells, tissues, and organs. It is composed of two major parts: the innate immune system and the adaptive immune system. Both change as people get older. The innate system is the first line of defense. It includes the skin, the cough reflex, mucous membranes, and stomach acid. A second line of defense includes specialized cells that alert the body of the impending danger. Inflammation is an important part of our innate immune system. The adaptive immune system is more complex than the innate immune system and includes the thymus, spleen, tonsils, bone marrow, circulatory system, and lymphatic system. These different parts of the body work together to produce, store, and transport specific types of cells and substances to combat health threats.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE The Promises of God

with Pastor Drew



reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled “The Promises of God”. As mentioned in part one of this series, there are but a few promises to all of mankind, the vast majority are to those who have become His children by adoption through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin. Some may think this is not “fair”, that all of God’s promises should be to everyone. Well they are to everyone that will repent of sin and turn to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin. Think of this way, you are a parent, your children have your protection; love; provision; sacrifice; and will inherit what you have at your departure. Should others who are not your children or even those who hate you and your children be beneficiaries of what you have for your own children? Of course not, that would be absurd! Now let us look at some promises of God concerning Him being the One who helps His children. Hebrews 4:1416 “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Psalm 60:11 “Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless.” Psalm 60:12 “Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.” Psalm 63:7 “Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.” Psalm 70:5 “But I am poor and needy; Make haste to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay.” Psalm 115:11 “You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.” Psalm 121:2 “My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’” Isaiah 41:13 “For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, “Fear not, I will help you.’” These are just a few of many verses in God’s Word the Bible that speak of God’s promise to help His children in their time of trouble. Please understand that He does not promise that we will never get into trouble; experience pain, heartache; go through trials and tribulations, quite the contrary. He promises that all those who do follow Him will suffer these; most of them will be at the hands of unjust people who hate God, truth, and righteousness. But as the follower of Jesus Christ goes through them, God has promised to be with us at all times for He has said, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee, I will be with thee even to the end of the age.” And His presence in our trouble and suffering gives great help and strength. The Apostle Paul expresses this truth in his letter to Timothy, 2Tim 4:16-18 “At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” Finally, one of my favorite verses that extol the faithfulness of God to be my help is Psalm 46:1-3 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.” Selah means to literally stop and think about what was just said. It would do you good to do just this.

waste. Astrocytes also have more general brain functions related to regulating blood flow and inflammation (a marker of injury or disease). But current methods to guide their development and differentiate them from human stem cells are time consuming and functionally limited. In the new paper, the Salk researchers describe a more efficient way to differentiate astrocytes that are sensitive to inflammation and function very much like ones in our brain do. Additionally, the Salk astrocytes can be cocultured along with neurons, allowing researchers to model the interactions between these two important cell types in both healthy and diseased states. With the right cocktails of chemicals—called growth factors—administered in stepwise fashion, human pluripotent stem cells can be prompted to develop into any cell type in the body. The Salk protocol guided pluripotent stem cells, over a period of six weeks, first to become generic neural cells and then precursors to astrocytes. With further chemical baths, the precursor cells differentiated into astrocytes a few weeks later. “There are other methods for differentiating astrocytes, but our protocol arrives at inflammation-sensitive cells earlier, which makes modeling more efficient and straightforward,” says Carol Marchetto, a Salk senior staff scientist and one of the paper’s authors. Another advantage of the Gage lab’s new method is that the astrocyte precursor cells can be frozen and later expanded and differentiated as needed, saving researchers approximately six weeks of time with each new experiment. Tests revealed that the induced astrocytes functioned very much like astrocytes iso-

lated from actual brain tissue. The lab-created astrocytes responded to the neurotransmitter glutamate and calcium similarly to natural astrocytes. Like typical astrocytes, the labgenerated cells also responded strongly to the presence of inflammatory molecules called cytokines by producing cytokines of their own. Additionally, the team tested their protocol on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are adult cells, usually derived from skin, that have been reprogrammed to a stem-cell-like state. The lab successfully turned iPSCs into astrocytes that exhibited the same inflammation sensitivity the natural astrocytes did, providing an important resource for studying diseases where brain inflammation may play a role. “This technique allows us

to begin addressing questions about brain development and disease that we couldn’t even ask before,” says Gage. The team also co-cultured astrocytes derived from pluripotent stem cells with neurons, an important step in exploring the relationship of different braincell types to normal function and disease. “The exciting thing about using iPSCs is that if we get tissue samples from people with diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s or depression, we will be able to study how their astrocytes behave, and how they interact with neurons,” says Krishna Vadodaria, a Salk research associate and one of the paper’s lead authors. This will be the next step in the lab’s research.

he Mountain West Board of Directors approved the recommendation by the league’s men’s basketball head coaches to name the conference’s top coaching honor after former San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher, who retired in April. The recipient of the award beginning in 2017-18 will be the Steve Fisher Coach of the Year. Fisher, who guided the Aztecs to a 386-209 record in 18 seasons, led SDSU to a Mountain West-record 10 conference titles, eight NCAA tournaments and 13 postseason appearances. Along the way, Fisher picked up his second career national coach-of-the-year award (Naismith, NABC, Adolph Rupp) in 2011 when San Diego State reached the NCAA Sweet 16, finished with a school-record 34 victories and was ranked as high as No. 4 nationally. The all-time winningest coach in San Diego State and MW history reached the Sweet 16 once more, this time in 2014, when the Aztecs finished with a 31-5 record. That year’s effort, which saw SDSU reach No. 5 in the national rankings, was one of 12 seasons of at least 20 wins. Then in 2015, Fisher was the recipient of the John R. Wooden Legends of Coaching Award. The league’s decision to name a postseason award after a former San Diego State head coach is not unprecedented. In September of 2014, the Mountain West named its baseball player-of-the-year award after Tony Gwynn, who was the baseball head coach from 2002-14 and lettered in the sport in 1979, 1980 and 1981. Gwynn also earned varsity letters in basketball four times (1978-81) and is the school’s all-time assist leader (590). This past season, SDSU baseball shortstop Danny Sheehan was the 2017 Tony Gwynn Co-Player of the Year, marking the first time an Aztec has won the award. Meanwhile, Chris Murphy from the University of San Diego was named to the Collegiate Baseball Freshmen AllAmerican team. Murphy posted a 3-4 record with a 4.17 ERA with 89 strikeouts. Murphy, who has already been named to the WCC AllFreshman team, appeared in 17 games for the Toreros (12 starts). He struck out 89 batters across 69 innings, good for a rate of 11.61 punchouts per nine innings, the fifth best rate in a single season in program history and the second best ever for a freshman.

San Diego is a Top 10 Tech City

San Diego is ranked #9 among the top 25 U.S. cities in technology, according to a recent Cushman & Wakefield national study. San Jose (Silicon Valley) and San Francisco placed first and second respectively based on the concentration of factors such as real estate and housing costs, educated workforce, capital availability and job growth prospects, the key ingredients for a healthy tech stew. “The lower cost of real estate and housing, as well as our educated and tech-savvy Millennial workforce, make San Diego an affordable alternative compared to other major tech cities and a prime location for tech companies to expand or relocate,” said Jolanta Campion, Cushman & Wakefield, director of research, San Diego. “With near-perfect year-round weather and an abundance of outdoor activities, San Diego is an attractive place to live, work, and play.” The top five cities included (#1) San Jose, (#2) San Francisco, (#3) Washington, D.C., (#4) Boston-Cambridge and (#5) Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, North Carolina. “San Diego’s technology sector is gaining a strong foothold as evidenced by more than 400 startups created annually since 2013,” said Brett Ward, executive director, Cushman & Wakefield, San Diego. Cushman & Wakefield said San Diego’s innovation cluster consists of nine technology sectors and accounts for $52 billion in annual regional impact, or 24 percent of the San Diego economy and 30 percent of local private-sector jobs. The largest local tech segment, information and communication technologies, accounts for 3,720 companies and more than 68,000 employees, the company said.
