Alpine Artist Recognized by State Senate By Shondreya Landrum For The East County Herald

ALPINE — In 1997, the California State Senate initiated a program to honor contemporary California art. Each of the 40 senators has been invited to select an artwork that best represents his or her district every year since the initiation of the program. Although there are no given rules on how to select the artwork, State Senator Joel Anderson decided to open this opportunity up to all of the constituents of his district and invited those interested to submit their artwork that focuses on the beautiful landscapes of our district, the amazing people who make a positive impact, or the exciting events in the community. Among them was Diane Keltner, whose sculpture called “The Home Stretch” was chosen by the pro- Above: Diane Keltner’s, “The Home Stretch” will be displayed fessional artist judges to repre- in two caucus meeting rooms behind the senate chambers sent Anderson’s Senate district representing Senator Joel Anderson’s district until Sept. 2016. 38 in the Capitol. Keltner moved to Alpine from the Clairemont area back in 1976 and has been creating breathtaking art for 25 years. About her sculpture, “The Home Stretch,” Keltner said, “I find [horses] to be very graceful. I like the muscle, I like the grace and I like the beauty.” Keltner took a class with the well-known artist Mehl Lawson to learn how sculpt horses, and created her Sisters in Saddles series. After the judges selected Keltner’s piece, Anderson commented “I am grateful for all of the artists who shared their time and talent for this exciting event. It was an incredible opportunity to learn about the amazing artists of many different backgrounds. I am ecstatic to see Diane’s sculpture in the Capitol building.” Keltner’s work will be displayed in the two caucus meet- From left: Diane Keltner receives honors from Senator Joel ing rooms behind the Senate Anderson’s representative Shondreya Landrum for her sculpture Chamber until September 2016. titled, “The Home Stretch.”

NEWS BRIEFS Heartland Fire & Rescue Receives Highest Rating Possible for Fire Protection Services EAST COUNTY — Several months ago, the Heartland Fire & Rescue Dept., which provides fire and emergency medical services to the cities of El Cajon, La Mesa, and Lemon Grove, voluntarily requested an external evaluation of the department’s services and capabilities by the Insurance Services Office (ISO). As a result, Heartland Fire & Rescue received a Class 1 rating from the ISO, which is the highest score a fire protection community can receive. The agency was previously at Class 2. The Insurance Services Office evaluates fire protection efforts in cities and districts throughout the country. They rate agencies on a scale of 1–10, with one being the best. The ratings are calculated on multiple factors, such as the Fire Department itself, the water supply system, and the dispatch center. “There are only two Class 1 ratings in San Diego County and Heartland Fire & Rescue is one of them,” said Chief Rick Sitta. “As a matter of fact, there just 97 Class 1 ratings out of 47,000 fire agencies in the United States. So, it is extremely rare for a fire agency to receive this kind of recognition.” Moreover, Heartland Fire & Rescue is now one of ten fire agencies with a Class 1 rating in the entire State of California.

Gasoline Prices Gouging Evidence Grows


Herald Letters to the Editor Shameful State Budget Excludes People With Disabilities

The Arc of San Diego rallies to restore unacceptable cuts to services for individuals with developmental disabilities SAN DIEGO — On Wednesday, June 17, The Arc of San Diego stood in protest of the state budget with those we serve, their families, the Lanterman Coalition, as well as all those affected by the shameful refusal of state legislators to restore necessary funding for critical programs. Our collective rally outside Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins’ San Diego office disputes Tuesday’s State Budget Agreement that dishonorably eliminated increases in funding necessary to maintain basic, life-supporting and lifechanging services for children and adults with developmental disabilities statewide. Together, we call on the Speaker, Gov. Brown and all legislators to not only keep the Lanterman Promise by restoring adequate funding but to recognize that all citizens, regardless of ability, have the right to live the most fulfilling lives possible and be included as active and contributing members of their communities.

The Lanterman Coalition

The Lanterman Coalition is dedicated to the preservation of the Lanterman Act, a 1969 law that guarantees Californians with developmental disabilities will receive the support necessary to live and work as independently

as possible in their own communities. The coalition had been advocating for a 10-percent across the board increase ($380 Million) to begin restoring basic services to people with developmental disabilities. The State Budget Bill passed Monday includes just $98 Million in additional rate increases, which amounted to a 2.6 percent increase. But the agreement announced Tuesday by Gov. Brown and Legislative Leaders doesn’t even include that 2.6 percent.

The Arc of San Diego

The Arc of San Diego is one of the largest, most comprehensive service providers for

people with disabilities in San Diego County, serving over 2,500 children and adults with disabilities such as mental retardation, autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome each year. For more information on The Arc of San Diego, please visit Join The Arc of San Diego’s social media community on Facebook at www.facebook. com/TheArcSanDiego and on Twitter at @TheArcSanDiego.

ust about two years ago, when gasoline prices in most of California last moved well above the $4-pergallon level, crude oil cost $147 a barrel. Oil companies said the high price of crude was a major factor in that price spike. This spring, when gas pump prices again jumped above $4 in many places, crude oil fell under $50 per barrel for awhile before recovering a bit to around $60 near the end of May. So it’s no wonder consumer advocates rail at gasoline prices, which are back near peak levels after a late-winter respite. In fact, evidence is mounting that prices in this state are being set to gouge consumers, even though there is no certainty of collusion between the four companies controlling almost 80 percent of the state’s gasoline production. Also pointing toward gouging is the fact that oil companies repeatedly claim gas refinery outages are big factors in California price spikes. When fire hit a non-operational fluid catalytic cracking unit at Exxon’s refinery in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance, prices rose all over California, yet the burned part of the plant was doing nothing. Another statewide rise came when there was a labor problem at Tesoro’s refinery in Martinez, east of San Francisco, which has long been unreliable. But there’s no rationale for a refinery problems in Southern California to affect prices in Northern California, or vice versa. Says a retired 32-year engineer at Valero’s refinery in Benicia, “The pipelines that leave Bay Area refineries do not connect with the pipelines in Southern California.” In short, the fact there may be a shortage for awhile in one part of the state doesn’t mean there will be one in the other large region. A comprehensive Kinder-Morgan Energy Partners map of the state’s gasoline pipelines confirms a lack of linkage between north and south. So while a refinery outage in one half of California might create a bit of a shortage there, it should not affect the other half. But shortages in one area invariably raise prices around the whole state. Those two peculiarities definitely suggest gouging. There are also the springtime statements of major oil company executives to their stockholders and financial analysts. Said Greg Maxwell, chief financial officer of Phillips 66, “First quarter gasoline cracks (the difference between the price paid for crude oil and the price of petroleum products made from it, including gasoline) for the Western Pacific region were $20.21 per barrel compared with $7.46 last quarter, resulting in record earnings for the region.” Reported a top Chevron official, “Margins increased earnings by $435 million driven by unplanned industry downtime and tight product supply on the West Coast.” And Tesoro chief executive Gregory Goff said, “In California, crack spreads have improved… There’s no question that during the first quarter with what happened to Tesoro (which sells under the Shell and USA labels, among others) as a result of the (labor) disruption at the Martinez refinery…it was very supportive to the margin environment there.” In short, when the companies produced less gasoline and charged more for it, their profits soared. So they had no incentive to delay planned maintenance outages at some refineries when unplanned disruptions shut down others. One result of all this was that Californians in late May were paying an average of $1.30 more per gallon for gasoline than drivers in other states. Only about 15 cents of that could be ascribed to the state’s higher gas taxes. Spokesmen for the Western Oil and Gas Association did not return calls seeking comment. All this led the Consumer Watchdog advocacy group to call for a federal Justice Department investigation of possible price gouging. Said the group’s president, Jamie Court, “Since the beginning of February, California’s 14 oil refineries have suffered 10 serious slowdowns or shutdowns. This is the only industry in America that profits more when its factories repeatedly break down. Since four oil refiners control 78 percent of the gasoline market, such an oligopoly can easily withhold needed products to drive up prices.” Put it all together and it’s clear gasoline prices here are far higher than they ought to be. Whether or not that’s a criminal matter has yet to be determined.

To Your

Weight Control


PAGE FIVE • JUNE 18-24, 2015

Living with MS with Dee Dean

. If you want to control your weight, is it better to eat three meals a day, or should you eat more, smaller meals?

. There is no scientifically proven answer to this question. Until there is, I’d suggest simply reducing your total food intake for each day until your weight goes down.

[Personal note: I’ve struggled to keep pounds off all my life. I’ve learned that calories count. You take in more than you burn; you gain weight. You burn more than you eat; you lose weight. Exercise helps, but the calorie burnoff usually doesn’t amount to much. The best exercise is pushing yourself away from the table.] Eating a bunch of small meals a day instead of breakfast-lunch-dinner is part of the popular media, which means you should be hearing “fad alert” in your head. Here are some of the claims: • The body burns calories to digest. Eating six to eight meals a day enables your body to use more calories to aid digestion. • Eating lots of meals rather than three will boost metabolism and control blood sugar. • More meals means less stored fat in the body. • When people consume the same number of calories in a single daily meal rather than three, they show significant increases in blood pressure, total cholesterol levels and levels of bad LDL cholesterol. • Eating every three-to-four hours can ward off hunger and prevent binges that lead to weight gain. • Eating more often helps regulate proper digestion to prevent gastrointestinal problems. • Eight meals a day will increase energy levels and accelerate muscle growth. To repeat, there is no proof that eating more frequently does any of the above. My own conclusion about weight control was confirmed in an editorial that appeared in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. A team of nutrition researchers concluded that weight loss comes down to “how much energy (or calories) is consumed as opposed to how often or how regularly one eats.” However, there was a recent study that indicated we may be better off eating only three meals a day. The study was done on mice, so the findings have to be confirmed by tests on humans. Satchidananda Panda, a regulatory biologist at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, led the study published by the journal Cell Metabolism. Panda and his team put groups of mice on different eating regimens for 100 days. Mice in two of the groups ate high-fat, high-calorie food. Half of them were allowed to snack throughout the night and day. The other mice had access to food only for eight hours at night, when they were most active. The mice that ate only for eight hours were almost as lean as mice in a control group that ate regular food. But the mice that ate around the clock became obese, even though they consumed the same amount of fat and calories as their counterparts on the time-restricted diet.

Autoimmunity: New Immunoregulation and Biomarker


linicians at LudwigMaximiliansU n ive r s i t a e t (LMU) in Munich have elucidated a mechanism involved in determining the lifespan of antibody-producing cells, and identified a promising new biomarker for monitoring autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus Erythematosus. The so-called humoral immune response is mediated by plasma cells and plays a central role in combating infections. Plasma cells secrete antibodies -- a class of proteins that specifically recognize infectious pathogens and facilitate their destruction. Individual plasma cells make only a single species of antibody that normally recognizes a single structure. Nevertheless, antibodies with certain specificities may erroneously attack the tissues of their host, causing autoimmune diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). “Balanced regulation of the production and activity of plasma cells is therefore vital,” says Professor Edgar Meinl (LMU Medical Center). Long-term antibody-mediated immunity is provided by so-called longlived plasma cells, and Meinl and his research team have now identified a novel mechanism involved in regulating the lifespan of these antibody producing cells. This involves the shedding of a particular cell-surface receptor, named BCMA, which is known to bind factors that promote plasmacell survival. The released segment that is cut off the receptor can be detected in the circulation, and the LMU group has shown that it provides a useful biomarker for monitoring the severity of autoimmune conditions. The new findings appear in the online journal Nature Communications.

Protease g-secretase truncates receptor

Plasma cells develop from progenitors called B-cells that carry specific membrane-bound receptors which recognize foreign proteins

termed antigens. When a B cell encounters its cognate antigen, it differentiates into a clone of plasma cells that secrete the antigen-binding protein in soluble form as antibody. How long an antibody-producing plasma cell survives in the body depends largely on the survival receptor BCMA. When the BCMA binds its ligands, the survival factors BAFF and APRIL, a genetic program is activated which effectively extends the lifespan of the plasma cell. “However, the lifetime of plasma cells cannot be prolonged indefinitely. Otherwise the organism would become swamped with antibodies, increasing the risk of an autoimmune reaction,” Meinl explains. “We have now shown, in cooperation with colleagues in Munich, Berlin and Stockholm, that the membrane-bound enzyme gammasecretase acts as a brake on immune reactions by fragmenting BCMA.” As a so-called transmembrane receptor, BCMA extends through the cell membrane and projects into the extracellular medium. Gamma-secretase removes the exposed portion by cutting the protein inside of the plasma membrane. That this enzyme cleaves the receptor directly was a surprise: “Up to now, it was only known to be involved in the degradation of membrane proteins that had already been cleaved by other enzymes. “BCMA is the first natural substrate of gamma-secretase to be identified that is directly cleaved by the enzyme,” says Meinl, “and probably reflects the fact that the extracellular segment of the receptor is unusually short.”

Informative immunological indicator

The cleaved fragment is stable, and can be detected in body fluids as soluble BCMA (sBCMA). Analysis of clinical samples from patients with MS or lupus erythematosus has indicated that the molecule could provide a useful biomarker for autoimmune disease. Lupus is a systemic condition which affects the whole organism. In lupus patients, levels of sBCMA in the blood were found to be abnormally high -- and were correlated with the severity of the disease. Multiple Sclerosis is an organ-specific disease, which targets the central nervous system. “Correspondingly, in MS patients sBCMA levels were increased specifically in the cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes the brain and the spinal cord,” says Meinl. “So, sBCMA is an indicator of the intensity of ongoing immune reactions. sBCMA is therefore well suited to serve as an informative clinical parameter for the assessment of the therapeutic effects of different treatment regimes on plasma cells.” These findings could facilitate the development of optimized and personalized modes of therapy. Both B cells and the BCMA/BAFF/APRIL system constitute promising targets for the treatment of lupus and MS as blocking their activity could inhibit the production of the autoimmune antibodies. In the case of lupus, an agent directed against BAFF has already been approved for clinical use. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, it is effective in only a subset of patients. Further clinical studies on agents that target BAFF, APRIL and their receptors are currently underway. In future, sBCMA could be used to measure and optimize the impact not only of these new therapies but also of already proven treatments, since it enables one to monitor the levels of plasma cells.

Are Your Personal Belongings Hindering a Sale?

Personal Belongings

Before any open house or home tour, it’s important to walk through the house one last time to look for any personal items that shouldn’t be

in eyesight or offensive material. Hide furs and debatable objects to ensure that no one leaves with a bad taste in their mouth from avoidable situations.

Questionable Art

When “avant-garde” art makes your houseguests blush, it’s not going to be a great starting point during an open house. When you have a house for sale, stow away all questionable art forms until your move into your new home.


It’s important to keep all firearms locked and away from all potential homebuyers coming to look at your house. Firstly, it’s unsafe to leave dangerous equipment out especially if children are along with the family to look at the house. Secondly, these weapons could be offensive to the potential buyers and may cause them to feel uneasy or unsafe as they view the house.


It’s common to accumulate clutter when you’ve been living in the same house for quite some time. Getting rid of the clutter or hiding it from the home buyers on an open house is the best solution to avoid losing a house sale due to cluttered eyesores. Keep the house tidy and clean in case personal house tours have to be scheduled throughout the week.

Valuables and Breakables

The last thing you want to think about is theft when you’re opening your house up to strangers. To be safe, it is always a good idea to hide valuables from the public eye. Also, any expensive breakables should be placed out of children’s reach so that accidents are less likely to occur. To have a successful open house, it’s important to sugarcoat your home with thought and caution.

t’s amazing how simple it is to offend someone and not even realize it. When it comes to selling a house, the décor and personal belongings in your home make a long-lasting impression on potential buyers just the same as the house itself. The photo of this mounted deer head is a great example of a household item that can easily offend buyers that oppose hunting.

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. This week, we will turn our attention to a particular teaching that Jesus gave while in the area of the Sea of Galilee. This area would become His home base; Capernaum was located on the Sea of Galilee and was also where Peter lived. Mark 4:1-9 “And again He began to teach by the sea. And a great multitude was gathered to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat in it on the sea; and the whole multitude was on the land facing the sea.” What we read next is the first recorded use of parables as a method Jesus would use to teach. A parable is a true to life story with a spiritual meaning hid with in it. The purpose was to enable those who had a desire to know God’s truth to grasp it and those who did not, it would be foolishness to them. “Then He taught them many things by parables, and said to them in His teaching: “Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it. Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away. And some seed fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no crop. But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” And He said to them, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” Fortunately for us, Jesus would explain the meaning of the parable later in His discussion with the disciples. In Mark 4:13-20 “And He said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables? The sower sows the word. And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. These likewise are the ones sown on stony ground who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with gladness; and they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution arises for the word’s sake, immediately they stumble. Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” The seed represents the Word of God, the four different types of soil represents four types of hearts and how they respond to the Word of God. The truth of this parable has been seen through out the ages, from the time of Adam and Eve to the present. A group of people and myself go to the area malls every Saturday night; to the beach one Sunday a month to witness to people concerning the Gospel. As we talk to people about the Word of God we see the truth of this parable over and over again. A large number of people are like the first soil and how it responds to the Word, their hearts are hard and they want nothing to do with it. Fewer are like the second soil, they have heard the Word before sometime in their life but it was a shallow belief that they had; they trusted in the Lord for what they could get out of Him and when He did not “deliver” like they thought He should, they turned away from Him and His Word. Many “professing believers” (church goers) are like the third soil, they believe but have allowed the cares and worries of the world; deceitfulness of riches; and the love of other things to take such a place in their lives that there is no fruit whatsoever in their lives. This I have found after 35 years of ministry describes the vast majority of those in churches today. Very seldom will I talk to someone in whom the Word of God has taken hold in their life and are living a fruitful productive life for the glory of God. This should NOT be the case, every Christian should be living their life for the glory of God, bearing fruit for eternity. Be honest! Which of the four best describes your life right now?

Commencement – the most joyful time of the year


JUNE 18-24, 2015

By Cindy L. Miles, Ph. D. Chancellor, Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District

ommencement is always the happiest time of year at our colleges. It’s easy to see the pride and happiness of our graduates as they line up wearing their caps and gowns. Many bring their mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, nieces, nephews and friends to share in this most joyful achievement. This year, we awarded a record number of more than 4,200 degrees and certificates to over 2,100 graduates at Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges on June 3 and 4. You can see on each graduate’s face that we truly are transforming lives through learning. No doubt, every one of our graduates has a moving story to tell about their path to graduation. At Grossmont College, student speaker Caleb Martinez related how he came from a background of poverty and gangs to become an outstanding student. Caleb has been accepted to the University of California, Berkeley with a full-ride scholarship. At Cuyamaca College, valedictorian Marissa Morrison talked about how she overcame losing her family’s home in the 2007 wildfires. She will be attending San Diego State University in the fall. Grossmont College’s keynote speaker was Pearl Lopez, a 1995 graduate of Grossmont College and now a counselor in the col-

lege’s Extended Opportunity Programs and Services office. Lopez said she wasn’t planning to attend college after she graduated from high school until a supervisor at her job urged her to return to school. She earned a bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University, a master’s degree in counseling, capped in 2014 by a doctoral degree from SDSU in educational leadership. Lopez urged graduates to take responsibility for their lives and to work hard to reach their goals. “If you’re not uncomfortable or afraid, you’re not growing,” she said. “Be willing to take risks in life. How do you know what your potential is if you don’t try?” Cuyamaca College’s keynote speaker was Star Bales, an El Cajon council member. Born in Iraq, Bales came to the United

EL CAJON — Several honored guests, including San Diego County Supervisor, Dianne Jacob, and Louise Andres, Rotary International Governor, District 5340, attended the Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for the ‘East County Rotarians Native Habitat Garden’ at the Water Conservation Garden. The Habitat Garden, underwritten by several east San Diego County Rotary clubs, will demonstrate ecology landscaping, a growing gardening movement that emphasizes native plants grown in their natural associations, creating optimal habitat for birds, butterflies, and other beneficial wildlife. The exhibit will also demonstrate best practices for waterwise design, storm water pollution prevention, on-site water reclamation, and gray water systems.

States in 1979 and has lived in El Cajon for 31 years. She is a graduate of Cuyamaca College, along with her two children. She congratulated Cuyamaca College’s graduates on sticking with their studies to earn their degrees or certificates. “The degree that you earned today not only makes you credible for your job field, but also has value in other areas of your life,” Bales said. “Just pay attention and you’ll recognize those times. It will happen more often than you think.” In a first for our District, we also awarded an honorary degree from Cuyamaca College to Spring Valley entrepreneur Bill Verbeck, recognizing his four decades of philanthropy and civic service that have benefitted numerous East County organizations. Although he had a successful career as a businessman, most notably as owner of Grossmont Escrow, the 87-year-old Verbeck always regretted not getting a college degree. As he received his degree, Verbeck received a standing ovation from Cuyamaca College’s graduates and spectators. It was a moving moment among so many during our ceremonies. We’re proud to be part of East County, and I always welcome your thoughts and feedback about how our colleges can better serve the community. Please feel free to contact me at .

Serial Eaters

erial is defined by Merriam Webster as “performing a series of similar acts over a period of time…” so eating breakfast, lunch and dinner over a lifetime qualifies as serial eating, wouldn’t you think? Most of us start the day with serial breakfast eating and for many of us this involves cereal eating. No oatmeal. Oatmeal’s too gooey. Cereal has to be wakeyou-up crispy. You have to eat it quick, before the milk soggies it up. Unless you’re an egg scrambler or a pancake lover or must have your oatmeal, you’re probably a serial cereal eater. In which case there are a few facts you should know. These facts are readily available in fine print somewhere on the cereal box, but I thought I’d save you the trouble. Due to circumstances beyond my control I’ve been forced to eat breakfast at home a lot lately. Since pouring cereal in a bowl, adding milk and sprinkling sugar over the top beats scrambling eggs and frying bacon and making a mess with pans to clean up and bacon grease all over the stove, I’ve become a serious serial cereal eater. I love Raisin Bran. The fact that it’s good for your health is a bonus, but lately my taste for Raisin Bran has been fading and I find myself reaching for the Rice Krispies box. When the empty Rice Krispies box lands in the recycle bin, I resort

to my son’s favorite cereal, Frosted Flakes. I never was much of one for corn flakes but much to my surprise, Frosted Flakes hit a tasty note on my palate and the next day I couldn’t wait to have another bowl of Frosted Flakes. My cereal box studies uncovered a few glaring inconsistencies. Comparing cereal to cereal isn’t all that easy. You read the tiny letters and see that Raisin Bran has 190 calories – not counting the milk calories. Who eats Raisin Bran without milk? I’m not planning to try it, so add 40 calories for milk. And make that skim milk – two percent reduced fat. The box doesn’t say how many calories whole milk adds. You’ll have to check it out on the milk carton. Without milk, Raisin Bran has 190 calories. Ha! Frosted Flakes only has 110! And Rice Krispies comes in-between with 130 calories. If you eat one of those fake cereals that want you to think you’re eating oreo cookies or graham crackers, I can’t help you. I’m not a fan of eating stuff that tastes like something else. You’ll have to read your own box. Nothing is what it says it is. Turns out comparing calories isn’t as easy as reading a box label. If you look real closely like I did when I embarked on this project, you’ll see you’re not comparing cereal to cereal. Some basic math is going to be required if you want the true facts, because…


One serving of Raisin Bran, according to the box, is one cup. We’re good so far. One serving of Frosted Flakes, however, is not one cup. It’s three-fourths of a cup. And Rice Krispies considers one serving to be one and one-fourth cups. So if you’re comparing nutrients and calories of your favorite cereals, wake up early and bring your calculator to breakfast. As a favor, I’ve done the math for you on the calories. One cup of Raisin Bran is 190 calories. That was easy. One cup of Frosted Flakes is 146.66667 calories and one cup of Rice Krispies is 104 calories. On the other hand, you could just measure out one and one-fourth cups of Rice Krispies or three-fourths of a cup of Frosted Flakes or one cup of Raisin Bran and the box will tell you exactly how many calories and how much of your daily required nutrients you’re getting. A little warning: one cup of cereal is not very much.

The volunteer citizens group overseeing the spending of millions of dollars in taxpayer-approved bonds for new and improved patient care facilities at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa has reelected its chairman and vice chairman. Kathleen Bute of El Cajon, a financial policy and planning officer with the County of San Diego, and La Mesa resident Glen Sparrow, a retired San Diego State University professor, will serve as chair and vice chair, respectively, for a one-year term ending June 30, 2016. The 11-member citizens group, called the Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC), has been meeting following the June 2006 election when East County voters approved Prop. G, a $247 million bond measure for financing improvement projects at the hospital. The Prop. G ballot measure passed by more than 77 percent, well over the two-thirds required. ICBOC members are uncompensated East County residents who are charged with monitoring bond proceeds spent by the Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), the public agency managing the bond-financed construction at the hospital. GHD serves as landlord of the hospital, including ownership of the property and buildings on behalf of local taxpayers. Specific seats on the ICBOC are filled by individuals representing various constituency groups, according to ICBOC by-laws. Sparrow is serving as a representative of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association (SDCTA), while Bute is serving in the seat for a committee member with finance experience. Both Bute and Sparrow joined the ICBOC in 2011. Bute has more than 28 years of financial service experience with government agencies. She joined the County of San Diego in 1987, and has served with several County departments, including Agriculture,

Learn How to Teach Abroad through SDSU

an Diego State University offers a program through its American Language Institute that prepares novice instructors to successfully live and teach English overseas. The popular 130-hour Teaching English as a Second Language/ Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificate program will take place weekdays from 8 am-4:30 pm, July 6-31. “During the time I spent at SDSU’s American Language Institute, I discovered the intersection of my passions and education,” said program graduate Zachary York. “I embarked on my journey not knowing where I would land; sights set on using my skill set to better the world. ALI has given me the keys to the kingdom and the ability to unlock the potential of my abilities. I have found what I am to do; what makes my heart sing,” program graduate Zachary York said. Program graduate Sarah Castillo, who taught in Spain for more than two years, added: “I had absolutely no teaching experience before going abroad. I mean, none. So, 130 hours transformed me into a legitimate ESL/ EFL teacher who felt comfortable standing in front of a class, designing curriculum, and teaching a subject with which I had no prior experience.” More than 200 graduates have been employed in 40-plus countries with the help of this ALI program that combines a solid teaching foundation with handson practical classroom experi-

ence. Cost of the program is $2,725. For more information, visit or email This is a SDSU Research Foundation program through the ALI, a division of SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. SDSU’s College of Extended Studies reaches out to San Diego, the nation, and the world with a wide variety of lifelong learning opportunities, and more than 50 certificate programs for career advancement. Topics range from contract management, construction, and craft beer, to grant writing, marketing, and human resources. And many programs are available online. The CES also offers one of the largest ESL programs in the U.S. through the American Language Institute; and university-quality courses to students age 50 and better through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Other opportunities include seminars, study abroad, corporate education and access to regular SDSU classes through Open University. For more information or to register, visit or
