Tifereth Israel Synagogue Setting the Pace with Growing Membership and Thriving Programs SAN CARLOS — At a time when fewer American Jews call themselves religious, and when even fewer are attending services regularly, a series of bold initiatives at Tifereth Israel Synagogue in the San Carlos neighborhood of San Diego has led to a thriving membership and growing programs. The synagogue’s strategies have drawn notice from congregations throughout the nation who are eager to replicate the success that includes a 10 percent boost in membership since last summer, a doubling of enrollment at the affiliated Silverman Preschool, and a steady growth in the number of students studying at the synagogue’s Abraham Ratner Torah School. “Our members are proving that Conservative Judaism is alive and well in San Diego County,” said Jerry Hermes, president of the congregation’s Board of Directors. The synagogue also is marketing itself to community groups. Navajo Community Planners, Inc., a city-sanctioned organization that advises the San Diego Planning Commission and city council, recently moved its regular public meetings to the Cohen Social Hall at the Tifereth Israel campus on Cowles Mountain Boulevard. A San Diego Countyrun exercise class for middleaged and older adults has seen steady growth since it began operating at the site this past spring. And the non-denominational Tifereth Israel Community Orchestra, headed by music director David Amos – who has conducted the London Symphony and Israel Philharmonic – continues to draw large crowds after a quarter century of being based at the synagogue. The synagogue also is home to regular visits from religious study students at local colleges and universities who are eager to learn more about Judaism. The most profound change came last summer when Tifereth Israel broke the mold in local synagogue financing by eliminating mandatory membership dues and asking congregants to donate what they could and what they would. The new model is aptly named T’rumah, a reference to Exodus 25:1 to 27:19, which explains how the Israelites built the Tabernacle through voluntary donations. “When it came time to build the Mishkan, the tent-sanctuary in which the Israelites worshiped in the Sinai desert, every Israelite was expected to bring a freewill offering of their own choosing to build the sanctuary – but God did not say how much,” noted Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal. “God knew that because of the Israelites’ love of their faith and tradition, they would be as generous as possible.” Tifereth Israel offers donation advisory guidelines based on a transparent process in which annual expenses are determined

during the budget process. Then it is up to congregants to decide what to give. The change brought about an immediate increase in new membership. “No Jew who wants to join our congregation will ever again feel daunted by the financial process inherent with the old system of fixed dues that can be difficult to afford for struggling families and young adults,” Hermes said. “We were hoping that Jews who were looking for a stress-free and open synagogue experience would give us a long look, and we’ve been very pleased with the results.” Eliminating mandatory dues drew strong media coverage when the new model took effect. Today, it is drawing strong interest from other congregations in the county. In May, meanwhile, the synagogue’s Silverman Preschool officially dedicated the Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg Infant Care Center, an addition that enables the rapidly expanding preschool to accommodate newborns and infants of working parents. “There are so many working parents looking for good, quality

daycare for their children, and this new addition enables Silverman Preschool to meet that growing community demand,” said preschool Director Amy Stanley. The changes come at trying time for synagogues across the country. According to a 2013 Pew Research Center report, 1 in 5 Jews in America now describe themselves as having no religion, are less likely to say that they attend religious services weekly or that they believe in God with absolute certainty. Despite these changes in Jewish identity in America, 94 percent of U.S. Jews said they are proud to be Jewish, and threequarters said they have a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people. Tifereth Israel has built upon that bond in expanding its services and growing its membership. More than 340 families, comprising nearly 600 people, are members of the synagogue, which was founded in 1905 and remains one of the larger Conservative congregations in the region. Tifereth Israel Synagogue is at 6660 Cowles Mountain Boulevard.

with Eric Visconti Herald Guest Commentary

The El Monte Valley Sand Mine: “Where Dollars Make No Sense” LAKESIDE — El Monte Valley is located near Lakeside, California east of San Diego in a historic area of natural beauty. Though this area has been labeled an “Eyesore” by a member of the Lakeside Planners Group during a recent meeting Wednesday, June 3, concerning a proposed sand mine, the valley is actually so beautiful that it was approved as the site of a golf resort back in 1998. The current proposal to create a sand mine amidst the people and wildlife of this community will serve to create potentially irreparable damage to the area for many years to come. The El Monte Valley cannot be appreciated fully on a drive through its beautiful winding road, or by talking to its warm residents. They valley is teaming with wildlife and vegetation, some of which is endangered. Billy Ortiz, a long time resident, has spent a great deal of time documenting the wildlife there. At the meeting on June 3rd he spoke of observing a rare “Gnatchatcher” as well as a “Vireo” which are two types of birds he observed that day. There are at least a half dozen other endangered species of wildlife in the valley. According to the proposal, the wildlife will be removed for the building of this mine. This proposal has been made by an organization based in Laguna Beach, known as “The El Monte Nature Preserve, LLC” which is a name specifically designed not to be associated with such activities as mining. The consultation firm EnviroMINE, Inc. is a San Diego based mining consultation firm with over 30 years experience in what they do. The spokesman for the organization, Warren Coalson, made a presentation of the plan which was followed by an opportunity for members of the community to voice their opinions. Some of the details of this plan are as follows: • The creation of a mine area encompassing 565 acres, nearly the length of the valley. • The removal of local animal and plant wildlife from the mining area. • The promise to replant 75 acres of the mine site after close of operations. • The proposed mining production of 1.5 million tons of sand per year. • 1.5 million tons of sand production per year = 4109 tons per day. • The proposed volume of 150230 dump trucks per day, each with a 20+ ton load capacity, hauling the daily volume above through a local community. • The proposed lowering of the entire valley floor by at

least 30 feet. • The proposed maximum depth of the main mining pit of 90 feet down, which is 50 feet lower than the current water table. • The proposal to use water spray to keep dust levels down. • The mining operation is proposed to last 15 years, potentially much longer with extensions. • Usage of 168 acre feet of water per year for the mining operation alone. – One acre foot of water = 325,851 gallons of water. – 168 acre feet of water = 54,742,968 gallons per year. – Divided by 365 days = 149,980 gallons per day which is an immense mining usage pointing to the common process of hydraulic fracking. • Additional water will be used to clean silt from the sand. According to the US Department of Energy it takes nearly 5,000 gallons of water to clean silt from one ton of sand. - 4,109 tons of sand production daily X 5,000 gallons per ton = 20,545,000 gallons of water DAY to clean the silt from sand produced. • Water usage to attempt to hold dust down over 565 acres to prevent Valley Fever outbreaks – unknown. Concerns from residents included the effect of an average of 200 trucks per day traffic being added to a two lane narrow road through the valley. Not only was safety a concern, but the vibrations caused by trucks with heavy loads often show up on regional seismographs. As each truck would carry at least 20 tons of sand, and many houses are in close proximity to the road, the sheer volume of this heavy industrial traffic is expected to cause cumulative property damage. Other concerns were raised with the enormous scope of the operation which has been reported in media to lead to the lowering of the valley floor to a depth of an additional 30 feet. The main sand pit where most mining will occur is expected to reach a depth of no more than 90 feet deep according to the Coalson. This will lower the water table beyond the reach of local wells, forcing residents to go on to city water, with no proposed compensation to help offset the enormous costs. The lowering of the water table to this extent will have unanticipated affects on vegetation in the area, leading to dryer ground conditions and a potentially much higher threat of wildfires. Finally, there is the concern of Lindo Lake. Lindo Lake is the only natural lake in the region, located on the lower end of El Monte Valley, with the higher end being occupied by the El Capitan Reservoir. Just the

fact that a reservoir was built in this location testifies that this is the best nearest source of ground water flow. The massive disruption of the valley’s water table by this proposed operation will almost certainly lead to the demise of Lindo Lake. Such a disruption with a drastically lowered water table would drastically affect Lake Jennings just by proximity to the operation. The hundreds of thousands of daily gallons of waste water will have to go “somewhere” after leaving the mine, in spite of the new lowered water table. The potential erosion dangers of that have not been publically noted if studied. The lakes are definitely in danger. Without it’s lakes, Lakeside will be just another small town in an arid region. Perhaps it will be renamed, “Bakeside”. Many other residents at the meeting stated a strong concern about the threat of Valley Fever from this operation, which is a serious condition caused by the continued inhalation of dust and spores from disturbed ground. This valley can be seen from many areas such as Crest, and the entire length of highway 52 east of the intersection of highway 125. With thousands of tons of sand production per day, the dust cloud will be seen from a far greater distance, and lower the air quality for many thousands of people. There will be: – Reduced air quality for residents of San Diego – Increased water costs for residents due to increased scarcity – A new precedent set to destroy other natural areas for financial gain. Jobs are important, but not when they mean taking away the vital resources and areas which people need to live. The financial part of the American dream can be sustained without permanently damaging the natural treasure of the American West. The Golden State of this western treasure is currently in a water crisis so severe that Central Valley farmers have recently been told not to plant certain crops due to the lack of water. All of this is happening while hundreds of thousands of gallons per day which we do not have, are being considered to be slated toward a mine for mere financial profit. If the people of San Diego County do not voice their concerns over this mine, life in the county will be negatively affected in ways that have not been predicted publically. When such a precedent is set by allowing this mine to be placed in the heart of this community, other communities will suffer the same fate. We cannot risk creating a nightmare in pursuit of the American Dream.

Nurse Practitioners: A Boon For Under-served Areas

L

et nurse practitioners in California have almost all the authority that doctors now possess, urges the state Senate via a proposed law it has already cleared. If this bill passes the Assembly unchanged and then is signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, warns the doctors’ lobby, what would be the point of spending 10 to 12 years studying and training to become a physician? MDs and their supporters also wonder how many patients with potentially serious ailments will prefer to see someone who studied and trained six or seven years instead of a full-fledged doctor. But, say supporters of full empowerment for nurse practitioners, many of them already perform the basic functions of primary care physicians, things like giving physical exams, providing diagnoses, ordering laboratory tests, prescribing most drugs and referring patients to specialists. They now work under supervision from MDs, but they’re still performing those tasks and many get only cursory oversight because doctors trust them. While this debate rages in Sacramento and around the state, some parts of California are currently far underserved on the medical front. Recent numbers from the California Health Care Foundation (http://www.chcf.org/~/media/MEDIA%20 LIBRARY%20Files/PDF/C/PDF%20CaliforniaPhysiciansSurplusSupply2014.pdf) show huge disparities between various regions in the numbers of both primary care doctors and specialists. Example: While the San Francisco Bay area has 78 primary care physicians and 155 specialists for every 100,000 residents, the Inland Empire region of Riverside and San Bernardino counties has but 40 primary care doctors and 70 specialists for every 100,000. This is because medical school graduates increasingly prefer to live in the state’s largest urban areas, in and near San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles. Which suggests a compromise solution to the debate over the powers of nurse practitioners: Give them full authority in underserved areas, including the San Joaquin Valley and counties like Del Norte, Siskiyou, Modoc and Humboldt, where physicians are relatively scarce. In fact, the chief legislative advocate for more nurse practitioner authority, Democratic Sen. Ed Hernandez of West Covina, uses these scarcities as a chief argument. “About onethird of our counties…have huge shortages,” he said in an interview. “Nurse practitioners could fill that void.” Giving them increased authority in the most medically underserved areas makes sense. For one thing, it would be strong motivation for more nurse practitioners to settle in those areas, while also providing dependable basic service for their residents. Nurse practitioners have a solid record in the 21 states where they now have full authority, with few malpractice actions against them. The move to beef up responsibilities of nurse practitioners is part of a general shift toward empowering health care professionals who are not physicians. Last year, a Hernandez bill authorized pharmacists to administer drugs and other products ordered by doctors, as well are providing contraceptives and some other drugs without a physician’s prescription. They also can give vaccinations and evaluate tests that monitor the efficacy of prescribed drugs. So far, no problems. Hernandez, a longtime optometrist, also tried last year to win passage of similar increased authority for his own colleagues and full powers for nurse practitioners. “We just don’t have enough primary care physicians to do these kinds of things anymore,” he said, “because medical school graduates increasingly want to become specialists.” Hernandez opposes granting nurse practitioners authority to operate independently only in underserved areas, but said he would back incentives encouraging more doctors to move into those places. But he’s already accepted one compromise, amending his bill to require that nurse practitioners operating with full authority must be affiliated with a medical group or hospital. Giving them added powers in underserved areas would help solve shortages in those regions, while leaving in place most current incentives to become an MD. It’s the sensible way to go in an era of increased patient loads under the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

. It seems like a lot of my friends are watching TV with the volume way up, and accusing everyone of mumbling. How common are hearing problems among seniors? . About one in three Americans over 60 suffers from loss of hearing, which can range from the inability to hear certain voices to deafness.

There are two basic categories of hearing loss. One is caused by damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve. This type of hearing loss is permanent. The second kind occurs when sound can’t reach the inner ear. This can be repaired medically or surgically. Presbycusis, one form of hearing loss, occurs with age. Presbycusis can be caused by changes in the inner ear, auditory nerve, middle ear, or outer ear. Some of its causes are aging, loud noise, heredity, head injury, infection, illness, certain prescription drugs, and circulation problems such as high blood pressure. It seems to be inherited. Tinnitus, also common in older people, is the ringing, hiss-

Full Service Salon ing, or roaring sound in the ears frequently caused by exposure to loud noise or certain medicines. Tinnitus is a symptom that can come with any type of hearing loss. Hearing loss can by caused by “ototoxic” medicines that damage the inner ear. Some antibiotics are ototoxic. Aspirin can cause temporary problems. If you’re having a hearing problem, ask your doctor about any medications you’re taking. Loud noise contributes to presbycusis and tinnitus. Noise has damaged the hearing of about 10 million Americans, many of them Baby Boomers who listened to hard rock with the volume turned up as far as possible. Hearing problems that are ignored or untreated can get worse. If you have a hearing problem, see your doctor. Hearing aids, special training, medicines and surgery are options. Your doctor may refer you to an otolaryngologist, a physician who specializes in problems of the ear. Or you may be referred to an audiologist, a professional who can identify and measure hearing loss. An audiologist can help you determine if you need a hearing aid. There other “hearing aids” you should consider. There are listening systems to help you enjoy television or radio without being bothered by other sounds around you. Some hearing aids can be plugged directly into TVs, music players, microphones, and personal FM systems to help you hear better. Some telephones work with certain hearing aids to make sounds louder and remove background noise. And some auditoriums, movie theaters, and other public places are equipped with special sound systems that send sounds directly to your ears. Alerts such as doorbells, smoke detectors, and alarm clocks can give you a signal that you can see or a vibration that you can feel. For example, a flashing light can let you know someone is at the door or on the phone.

Key Regulator of Inflammation Disrupted by Gene Variants Linked to MS

W

i t h genetic roots of m a n y autoimmune diseases pinpointed, scientists are zeroing in on the variety of molecular mechanisms triggered by these harmful variants. A team led by Yale School of Medicine researchers has implicated a central regulator of inflammation as a cause of many cases of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) — and intriguingly, the researchers note — ulcerative colitis as well. The study was published in the June 10 issue of the journal Science Translational Medicine. “After identifying the genes that cause MS, we are starting to generate a comprehensive roadmap of the how these genes operate together in allowing immune cells to become activated and attack the myelin,” says David A. Hafler, the William S. and Lois Stiles Professor of Neurology and Immunobiology at Yale and chair of Yale’s Depart-

ment of Neurology. Last fall, a consortium of researchers identified genetic variants that play a role in onset of 21 different autoimmune diseases. Ninety-seven variants were associated with multiple sclerosis. The new Yale research led by Hafler and first author William J. Housley shows that 17 of these MS variants affect the NFkB pathway, which controls a host of immune system responses to environmental threats, and that one variant associated with MS near the NFkB gene profoundly increased gene activity. The findings illustrate the complexity of individual diseases like MS, in which variants can contribute to small increases in risk of disease through different molecular mechanisms. They also illustrate how same molecular pathways, such as NFkB, can trigger a variety of autoimmune diseases with fundamentally different symptoms — such as MS and ulcerative colitis. “Identifying these like-

ddean@echerald.com minded genes that by themselves contribute only a small risk to disease but together lead to major alterations in immune function may allow a more precise approach in deciding which drug should be used to treat patients,” Hafler said. Primary funding for the research came from grants from the National Institute of Health and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Source: Yale School of Medicine, Neuroscience News

Attention Homebuyers: Get the 411 on Open House Etiquette

S

Come Prepared

To make the most of your time, try to plan a day when you can visit neighborhoods and see many different open houses at once. Also, keep in mind what is practical for your lifestyle. If you need a specific amount of bedrooms, bathrooms, or other features, don’t stray from your expectations—you wouldn’t want to settle on a property and eventually experience buyer’s remorse.

Be Comfortable

Since you will be walking

up and down stairs and around homes for a few hours, make sure you’re wearing comfortable attire and shoes. Be reasonable in your outfit—a more conservative look would be appropriate.

Be Polite with the Seller/Agent

Always smile and greet the seller or agent kindly as if you were going over to a friend’s home. Be respectful of their property and thank them on your way out the door.

Ask Permission Before Taking Photos or Video

You should definitely ask for permission to take photos or a video of the property. Although it is up for sale, it might still be someone’s private property so always ask before you start documenting.

Look But Don’t Touch

It’s okay to look around the closets and cupboards to get a sense of how much storage you would have if you bought this

home, however, don’t rummage through personal items. Bring a tape measure for accurate measurements on your storage space.

Keep the Negative Comments for After the Open House

Never share negative comments about the home until you’ve left the open house. Even if you don’t love certain parts of the home, they might bring lots of enjoyment for the current owners that might be at the open house. Be aware of you criticisms because they may hurt someone’s feelings.

What are Others Saying?

You will probably not be the only ones at the open house. Other couples will be looking around and commenting about the different home features. Listen to what they say and their reactions to different rooms—it’s always good to have a second opinion on things.

PART XII

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 another astounding event in a day in the life of Jesus. Mark 5:1-20 “Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gadarenes. And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. And the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. And he cried out with a loud voice and said, “What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me.” For He said to him, “Come out of the man, unclean spirit!” Then He asked him, “What is your name?” And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion; for we are many.” Also he begged Him earnestly that He would not send them out of the country. Now a large herd of swine was feeding there near the mountains. So all the demons begged Him, saying, “Send us to the swine, that we may enter them.” And at once Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea. So those who fed the swine fled, and they told it in the city and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that had happened. Then they came to Jesus, and saw the one who had been demon-possessed and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid. And those who saw it told them how it happened to him who had been demon-possessed, and about the swine. Then they began to plead with Him to depart from their region. And when He got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed begged Him that he might be with Him. However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, “Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.” And he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all that Jesus had done for him; and all marveled.” The first thing I want you to understand is that everything Jesus did; everywhere He went had purpose, He did not just aimlessly wander around. Here in our text we find Him traveling across the Sea of Galilee to a place known as the Gadarenes. This was on the east side of the Sea of Galilee and was the area the tribe of Gad (one of the 12 tribes of Israel) who had settled in it rather than go into the Promised Land many years prior. Jesus was seeking out those who had gone astray for this is why He came, to seek and to save those which are lost (He still does this today). Next we see who greets Jesus and His disciples, a man that was possessed by a legion of demons. One can only imagine how utterly horrifying this man’s life had to have been. We are told from our text a part of how bad it was, “dwelling among the tombs; no chains could hold him thus being a terror to all the people around; always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones.” It is quite disconcerting how there is such an interest today in the demonic realm. It is made out at times to be innocent fun; a way to acquire fame, fortune, and notoriety; Fox even has a new show titled “Lucifer” (which is another name for Satan) and he is made out to be a “good guy”. How foolish our society has become, to think that Satan and his demons want good for anyone! God’s Word the Bible tells us his character, John 8:44 “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” Finally, take note of the mercy Jesus had on this man as well as all the people who had been terrorized by him. Jesus set the man and the town’s people free of the terror. Strangely enough, the town’s people begged Jesus to depart while the man was so grateful and wanted to follow Jesus. One would think everyone would be grateful.

editor@echerald.com for consideration.

EL CAJON — Madhu Velji will be at the Fletcher Hills Library, located at 576 Garfield Avenue, El Cajon, on Saturday, June 27 at 2 p.m. to Explore the World of Spices during a demonstration of Indian cooking. Delight your senses with the distinct flavors of spices. Demonstrator Madhu Velji will take you on a journey of spices as you learn the art of Indian Cuisine. Through this cooking demonstration, she will guide you through the luxurious spices, inviting aromas, and tasting samples of this delicious cuisine. Spices have an important role to play in different places. Not only do they add color, flavor, and taste, but consumption of spices provides infinite health benefits. Some may be a substitute for your costly beauty products and even medicines. Explore the world of spices and how you can incorporate them in your daily cooking. You will taste, smell, and feel different spices in the entrees as well as learn how to make your own “curry powder” that can be used for Indian or non-Indian food preparation.

Too many e-mails

ho needs three e-mail accounts? Not me. E-mail isn’t used that much anymore; everyone texts, tweets and IMs - sends Instant messages. Who needs e-mail? Me. Not a lot, but when I need it, I need it. However, I sure don’t need three e-mail accounts. Having two accounts comes in handy – I’ll explain that later. Like most everyone, I started out with Cox.net many years ago. Somewhere along the line I signed up for Google’s Gmail. I don’t remember why. It was there; it was free… When we moved to a new house, I changed to AT&T for my Internet provider and they required me to sign up for e-mail service, so now there were three. I stopped using Cox altogether – except for once a month when I went to delete the hundreds of e-mails that landed uninvited in my Cox account. They came from every catalogue I’d ever ordered from and every website I’d ever visited and – well, you know. Sometimes I’d spot an e-mail sent weeks ago from a good friend who was still using my Cox e-mail address. I’d quick send a reply giving my Gmail address and asking her or him to delete the Cox address. But one day my replies wouldn’t go out. One of those boxes you don’t love to see kept popping up, asking for my password. I tried every password

I’ve ever used. Didn’t help. The box kept fading away and reappearing. The only way I could get out of the loop was to shut down my computer – which told me to close the program still running before it would shut down or I’d lose everything. I guess I lost everything… AT&T took care of the problem that time but the other day it started up again - this time on my iPhone. Like you, I have my e-mails connected to my cell, but only AT&T and Gmail. No way I wanted the deluge of e-mails coming through the Cox account to clog up my iPhone. No e-mails were coming in or going out on my cell. This was disastrous! A body can’t live without e-mail on her phone – e-mail that works, preferably. You can’t text or IM everything. Well, maybe you can. Maybe you’re savvier than I am, but for me drastic measures were called for… That meant calling tech support. When I had a few hours to spare I called AT&T; got quickly to the right person, thankfully, and put her on speaker. She asked me to turn on my computer and click the box that would let her into my home and give her the right to mess around in my computer. Having no choice, I clicked on the box and then watched her alien cursor flitting across my screen. While she was there I asked if she could delete the Cox e-mail. With a cyber-wave

A

of her techno-wand, Cox was gone, along with eight or nine hundred unread e-mails. Back at my cell all was well again. E-mails were coming and going. I asked the AT&T rep what could’ve happened to cause all that - I hadn’t touched anything; I hadn’t made any changes to my e-mail settings. She said since I had both Cox and AT&T e-mails in Outlook, possibly Cox had recently made some software updates that changed my e-mail settings. Kind’a makes you wish for the days when you were the only one who could do stuff to your computer and phone. So now there are two. E-mail accounts. Since Paul – you remember him – doesn’t have a computer, I use the AT&T account for his Starbucks messages, which are mostly telling him he’s earned a free drink reward on his gold card. My Gmail account gets the free drink messages for me. That way I know whose gold card to use when we go to Starbucks. E-mail remains a vital and important part of our life.

La Mesa resident Mark Neville has been named executive director of the San Diego Bowl Game Association, the non-profit organization that produces San Diego’s two college football bowl games played annually in December at Qualcomm Stadium, the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl and the Holiday Bowl. Neville has been with the San Diego Bowl Game Association since 1991. He previously served as associate executive director, overseeing sponsorship, marketing, advertising and media relations efforts. He succeeds Bruce Binkowski, who had been with the association for 37 years, spending the last 14 as executive director. Binkowski is currently serving as a consultant during this year’s transition. “We are confident Mark is the right guy to lead the San Diego bowl game effort moving forward,” said Association Chairman Vincent Mudd. “His experience and knowledge of the industry is tremendous and he’s been by Bruce’s side learning the ropes for many years now. He is ready and we’re grateful for his passion and professionalism.” The San Diego Bowl Game Association’s mission is to generate tourism, exposure, economic benefit and civic pride for San Diego and its citizens by producing the nation’s most exciting bowl games and festival of activities. During its 37-year history, the organization has generated more than $730 million in economic impact for the region. This year, kickoff for the Poinsettia Bowl will be at 1:30 on Wednesday, Dec. 23, and one week later for the Holiday Bowl at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 30. Both games will air nationally on ESPN-TV and ESPN Radio. The Poinsettia Bowl will feature a bowl eligible Army taking on a team from the Mountain West Con-

SDSU Business of Wine Courses

ccording to a report by the Wine Institute and California Association of Winegrape Growers, the California wine industry has an annual impact of $51.8 billion on the state’s economy, and an economic impact of $125.3 billion on the U.S. economy. San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies offers a Professional Certificate in the Business of Wine that is designed to prepare students for occupations in this booming industry. “The biggest strength of the Business of Wine certificate program was the breadth of the courses,” said Grant Tondro, co-owner of The Barrel Room, Urge GastroPub, and Brothers Provisions. “If someone like me who’s already an industry professional has gaps to fill, there’s a course for them. The program is absolutely worth it and you can get out of it as much as you put into it.” The comprehensive Business of Wine courses are geared for professionals and entrepreneurs in the wine, food, and hospitality fields who want to quickly expand their knowledge of industry topics. The certificate is directed to restaurant owners and staff, winery employees, event planners, distribution and retail sales employees, wine bar owners and staff; plus anyone interested in moving into wine or hospitality careers, and wine enthusiasts who desire a professional-level education.

SDSU is offering three Business of Wine classes during the remainder of summer: Importing and Distribution, Wednesdays, July 8-29, 6-9 pm Intensive (Spanish Wines), Mondays, July 13-August 3, 6-9 pm Intensive (Austrian/German Wines), Mondays, August 10-24, 6-9 pm For more information, email eyousif@mail.sdsu.edu, visit neverstoplearning.net/wine, or call (619) 594-1138. 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 universityquality 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.
