LA MESA — The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce hosted their 9th Annual ‘Taste of La Mesa,’ Monday, June 12. Hundreds of guests took a stroll through both sides of the La Mesa Community Center that had food displays and sponsors staged throughout the entire facility. People could eat their hearts out from over 24 restaurants and caterers, while sipping wines from six different wineries/wine partners, as well as enjoy a cold beer from premier beer sponsor, Samuel Adams. As guests entered they were tantalized by the aroma of the grills preparing freshly grilled sliders from The Hills Local Pub and other delights. VIP ticket holders entering at 5 p.m. were afforded an “up close and personal” visit with the restaurants and vendors as they walked around the rooms and filled their plates with their first samplings of delicious foods. At 6 p.m. the General Admission ticket holders joined the crowd and the party rocked on! All ticket holders could visit the restaurants of their choice, as many times as they wished –no limit on their visits – making this a unique tasting experience. Just when people thought they had their fill, they were tempted to try samples of tasty desserts from various restaurants which completed the evening. An added feature of this year’s event was the sponsorship of the professional sound equipment, as well as the announcers from Studio M.I.F. adding to the evening announcements and sponsor recognition. There is nothing better than the winning combination of putting great people together in an interactive setting, with good conversation and then adding delicious food – this makes for a winning recipe and made the 9th Annual Taste of La Mesa, the feast in the East where everyone was able to “eat their heart out” in La Mesa!

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Just How Rampant is Corruption in State Gov’t?


he well-documented “fix-is-in” proceedings which forced consumers to pay more than 70 percent of the cost of shutting down the San Onofre Nuclear Power Station were one form of corruption in state government for which no one has yet been punished in a meaningful way. Similarly, when proof reached the highest levels in state government that the California Energy Commission was in serious conflict of interest when it handed out tens of millions of dollars in grants to build hydrogen car refueling stations just over two years ago, no one was punished. Gov. Jerry Brown even reappointed the commission chairman to a new term. These problematic actions were exposed by media, including this column. New forms of corruption by state officials have been exposed more recently by the state auditor and the Department of Finance, involving both the University of California and the state’s Board of Equalization, which has many tax-collection functions. Taken together, the incidents indicate corruption is probably rampant in state government. It’s hard to determine just how widespread, because it almost always takes a whistle-blower or informant to expose such wrongdoing. Reporters and auditors can’t simply walk into a state office and ask the receptionist to take them to the most corrupt individuals there. That doesn’t work. What’s clear is that corruption takes many forms and cheats taxpayers and consumers of many millions of dollars, possibly billions. In the Energy Commission’s case, the consultant who designed the map for placement of hydrogen stations and then trained state employees in evaluating grant requests based on that map resigned after his blueprint was approved. He then set up a new company which applied for grants and won many. Could a grant applicant have been in a more favored position? The San Onofre “settlement” agreed to in a secret meeting between Southern California Edison Co. officials and Michael Peevey, a former president of Edison who headed the Public Utilities Commission at the time of the meeting, dunned consumers more than $3 billion. Could a company have been in a more favored position? For sure, public hearings held later about this settlement were completely irrelevant, as the outcome had already been determined. This spring’s revelations about UC and the Board of Equalization involved completely different forms of corruption. At UC, the auditor reported, President Janet Napolitano’s office spent $175 million less over a period of years than it budgeted for, then asked for budget increases based on the previous over-estimated budgets and not on actual spending, in effect maintaining an unreported slush fund that could be used for almost anything. The auditor also charged that Napolitano’s office interfered with the audit process, later softening her words by saying “nothing nefarious” occurred. Nothing nefarious? What were students to think as they learned about this spare cash at the same time their tuition rose? Said Democratic Assemblyman Kevin McCarty of Sacramento, “We’re jacking up tuition for…families, we are squeezing access and at the same time (they) are sitting on this $175 million suitcase in the corner.” A fourth form of corruption was discovered by state Finance officials at the Board of Equalization, where elected members were found to have spent prolifically on their office furnishings, misused tax collectors for things like parking management at political events and interfered with some tax cases. This board has long been a sinecure for termed-out legislators like all four current elected members, former Democratic lawmakers Fiona Ma and Jerome Horton and ex-GOP legislators George Runner and Diane Harkey. It has also served as a stepping stone to statewide office for the likes of Controller Betty Yee and Treasurer John Chiang. While no one knows just how rampant these types of corruption are in state government, it is clear they are not confined to just one agency, and generally go unpunished. The fact that examples like these turn up almost every time investigators take a close look at an agency is one indication that a wide-ranging house-cleaning is in order. Here’s a question for the many declared and potential 2018 candidates for governor, none of whom has yet spoken out about any of this: What will you do about the well-proven and established climate of corruption that’s persisted for many years under the last several governors?

Living with MS with Dee Dean The Stigma of Bladder Dysfunction in Multiple Sclerosis


ladder problems are very common in people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), affecting at least 80 percent of those who have it, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS). In some cases, bladder dysfunction is the first sign a person has MS. Bladder dysfunction occurs

der contract involuntarily and too frequently before the bladder actually fills with urine. This can lead to symptoms such as: • Urgency: an intense feeling that you need to urinate immediately • Frequency: taking trips to the bathroom more than 8 times in 24 hours • Nocturia: waking up at night to urinate

which the bladder never empties completely


. For starters, worrying is a waste of time. If you think your forgetfulness is the sign of the onset of Alzheimer’s, get to a doctor for a check-up. The scary truth is that Alzheimer’s begins with difficulty remembering the familiar—people, things, events. Or, you start having trouble doing simple arithmetic in your head. These annoyances are common to seniors with healthy brains, so most of us don’t get too worked up over them. But, as Alzheimer’s progresses, it can make people forget how to brush their teeth or change channels on a TV. And it gets worse until patients require complete care. So, when should you go to your doctor to discuss your memory lapses? That’s a personal judgment call. I’ve found that I can’t remember the names of movie stars and ballplayers the way I used to. I attribute this to what I call the “overloaded filing cabinet.” As we get older, we accumulate so many memories that it’s impossible to find the one we want. I’m not sufficiently concerned about my memory difficulties to mention them to my doctor. But if you are concerned, get tested. The available tests include a thorough physical, neurological, and psychiatric evaluation. A medical history will probably be taken. This history includes information about use of medicines, diet and past medical conditions. Blood and urine tests may be done. There are also mental tests of memory, problem-solving and language. A brain CT scan could be ordered. If you’re having some memory lapses, go to the doctor with a positive attitude. The fact is that many different medical conditions may cause Alzheimer’s-like symptoms. Some of these medical conditions may be treatable. You could be suffering from the effects of a high fever, dehydration, poor nutrition, reactions to medicines, thyroid problems or a minor head injury. And then there are those pesky emotions. Feeling sad, lonely, worried, or bored can affect people facing retirement or coping with the death of a loved one. Adapting to change can make you forgetful. There are benefits to an early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. Knowing early helps patients and their families plan for the future. It gives them time to discuss care while the patient can still participate in decisions. Early diagnosis also offers the best chance to treat the symptoms of the disease. Today, some people with Alzheimer’s are given drugs to treat some of the disease’s symptoms. Scientists are working to develop new drugs to treat Alzheimer’s. Although research is helping us learn more about the disease, we still do not know what causes Alzheimer’s, and there is no cure.

Social, Emotional, and Physical Consequences

when MS lesions — areas where the myelin sheath that normally protects nerve fibers is damaged — block or delay nerve signals that control how the bladder and the muscles surrounding the bladder store or release urine. People with MS may develop overactive bladder, underactive bladder, or both, according to the Urology Care Foundation. In overactive bladder, the muscles controlling the blad-

• Incontinence: loss of bladder control In underactive bladder, the bladder fails to empty completely. The muscles around the urethra (the tube through which urine exits the body) may remain contracted — even when you are trying to urinate. This can lead to symptoms such as: • Hesitancy: having difficulty starting to urinate • Retention: a condition in

Bladder dysfunction can be embarrassing, interfere with social relationships, and even affect your ability to hold a job. “It’s a serious problem, because bladder dysfunction can be isolating for many MS patients,” says Allen Bowling, MD, PhD, an MS specialist and neurologist at the Colorado Neurological Institute in Englewood, Colorado, and author of Optimal Health with Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide to Integrating Lifestyle, Alternative, and Conventional Medicine. “They’re afraid to leave their house for fear of accidents and constantly needing to be near a restroom,” Dr. Bowling says. Left untreated, bladder dysfunction can lead to bladder infections or kidney damage. In addition, constantly-leaking urine due to incontinence can lead to skin infections, as well as loss of independence and self-esteem. Nocturia can additionally interfere with sleep.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE The Promises of God

with Pastor Drew


Part VIV

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 Jesus’ promise of His return, John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” Matthew 25:31-4 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” 2Corinthians 5:6-8 “Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 1Thesalonians 4:13-18 “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 2Thesalonians 2:1 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him.” 1John 3:1-3 “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifies himself, even as He is pure.” Make note of the last verse that was cited, one of the effects of believing that Jesus is going to return is the keeping of oneself away from wanton sin. Knowing that as He tells us of His return, it will be like a thief in the night; no one knows the day or hours in which He will return, I better not be doing something that will cause me to be ashamed at His coming.

Calbiotech of El Cajon acquired by German company in Mumbai

Calbiotech, an El Cajon-based diagnostics company, has been acquired by a subsidiary of Transasia Bio-Medical Ltd, a large medtech company in Mumbai. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed. The Transasia subsidiary that acquired Calbiotech is a Germany-based company called ERBA Mannheim, which manufactures medical devices. Calbiotech has a global footprint of more than 200 products, which are distributed to 60 countries worldwide. With the expansion announcement, Calbiotech will maintain its footprint in San Diego because of the access to key reference labs and other biotech customers throughout the region. It will also serve as ERBA’s hub and gateway to the Latin American market. The acquisition was recently announced by the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp. In 2016, Calbiotech was part of a San Diego EDC program called MetroConnect, the World Trade Center’s export assistance program. The San Diego EDC said the company was referred to the MetroConnect program by Jo Marie Diamond, head of the San Diego East County Economic Development Council. “I’ve been working with Calbiotech for years,” said Diamond, “They are representative of everything positive about the San Diego economy -- a focus on innovative products, a strong sense of commitment to the community, and an incredibly grounded and highly diverse team.”

New Student Tustees Seated on College District Governing Board EL CAJON — Two San Diego County natives, both honors graduates of local high schools with plans to transfer to San Diego universities from community college, were officially seated Tuesday, June 20 as new student trustees on the GrossmontCuyamaca Community College District Governing Board. The student trustees, who are elected by their peers as non-voting board members, are Grossmont College student Brandon Vivero, and Cuyamaca College student Kyrie Macogay. The pair took their oaths of office for the oneyear term at Tuesday night’s board meeting at Grossmont College. “We value our student trustees for their very important role as the student voice on the board,” Governing Board President Bill Garrett said. “The board appreciates the input the student representatives provide as we consider new policies and initiatives to guide the direction of the college district.”

Addressing students’ struggles Vivero, a sociology major at Grossmont College, came to the campus in fall 2013 after graduating with honors the same year from Mar Vista High School in Imperial Beach. His future plans are to obtain a master’s from San Diego State University, become a college counselor and ultimately to obtain a doctorate. When first arriving at Grossmont College, the National City native had plans to pursue an education in engineering. But after connecting with Extended Opportunity Pro-

grams and Services (EOPS), a state-funded student support services program for educationally and economically disadvantaged students, Vivero discovered a passion for helping fellow students overcome barriers to higher education. His own experience going through the EOPS Summer Institute Program to successfully make the transition from high school to college opened his eyes to the value of getting a head start to prepare for the rigors of higher education. Since then, his involvement in several campus clubs, including the EOPS Club, the Latino Alliance, Dreamers Movement, HOLA Club, and Associated Students of Grossmont College, Inc., as well as his efforts as a community ambassador for Grossmont College, convinced him that helping students was his true calling. As a child of divorced parents, Vivero said his childhood years were difficult, marked by poverty and upheaval. He lived primarily with his mother as a youngster, crossing the border on weekends to stay with his father, who lives in Tijuana. His early years were spent moving with his mother from place to place in typically crime-ridden neighborhoods, but he said her nurturing and the values of hard work and education instilled in him by his father kept him on the straight and narrow. “I remember moving so many times from house to house when I was small, approximately 15 different places,” he said. Moving to Tijuana to live with his father once he started middle school provided a modicum of stability, but he faced

another obstacle in getting to and from school, a 2 ½-hour ordeal each way, walking and riding the bus. Vivero said his own hardships have given him insight into challenges faced by many students from underserved communities and he wants to do what he can as a student trustee to provide support and mentoring. “I have seen so many students struggle to achieve their goals and being an EOPS student, I know the hardships of overcoming obstacles,” he said. “My goal as a trustee is to ensure that students who are struggling because of extenuating circumstances get support.”

Bridging the gap Kyrie Macogay (“KY-ree MAC-o-guy”), a biology major at Cuyamaca College since 2015, hopes to transfer to UC San Diego to continue her studies in biology. Her professional goals are to work in the veterinary field and possibly focus on animal research. Her interest in student government led to her becoming a senator with the Associated Student Government of Cuyamaca College in 2016, and this year, she decided to expand her involvement as a student trustee. “I also feel that communication between the student body and the administrative body can be improved, so I hope to bridge the gap between them,” she said. The 2015 honors graduate from Monte Vista High School also said that as a student trustee, she would like to address parking lot security and with the help of ASGCC,

establish a food pantry for needy students. “ASGCC has had opportunity drawings for things like backpacks and other school supplies and there has been mention of textbook vouchers to help with the expense of books,” Macogay said. “I would like to pursue these types of projects.” She hopes students feel welcome to drop by her office in the student center to share their thoughts and concerns. “I hope that students come to see it as a safe space,” she said. “I’m all in for students to speak their minds on what goes on around the campus.” The San Diego native lives in Spring Valley with her parents and two sisters, including a twin who also attends Cuyamaca College. Acquiring higher education is family tradition, with both her parents having attended college in their

native Philippines and her oldest sister graduating from San Diego State University. Wanting to escape the grinding poverty of their homeland, her parents immigrated to the United States, where her father joined the Navy. Both English and Tagalog is spoken at home and Filipino cuisine is a family favorite. A menagerie of pets that Macogay describes as part of the family also share the home – a Saint Bernard, a lab mix, a cat, goldfish and tropical fish. Like the solace she finds at home, Macogay values the close-knit atmosphere at Cuyamaca College. “What I like about Cuyamaca is that there are so many people you can be friends with,” she said. “Friends help you get through the tribulations of colleges because they can always cheer you up.”
