Your Congress InwithThe News Davis Congresswoman Rep. Susan Davis Opposes Bill to Weaken Endangered Species Act, Works to Provide Real Drought Relief WASHINGTON — Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) opposed a socalled drought relief bill that wouldn’t create any new water but would weaken the Endangered Species Act, gut environmental protection laws, and put commercial fishing jobs at risk. The Western Water and American Food Security Act (H.R. 2898) has drawn opposition from a number of groups and President Obama has promised to veto the bill. “There is no doubt that California is hurting from this drought,” said Davis. “However, I reject the notion that the only way to provide drought relief is to put endangered species at greater risk. We need bipartisanship not politics to bring drought relief and support to communities. Sadly, the bill before the House simply continues a fight that opponents of the Endangered Species Act have been waging for decades and framing it as drought relief.” A myriad of Native American, environmental, and commercial and recreational fishing organizations – groups sometimes at odds with each other – have come together in opposing H.R. 2898 because it would: Weaken the Endangered Species Act. The reduced pro-

tections of non-endangered fish species, risking fishing industry jobs, has prompted opposition from commercial fishing groups. Limit environmental review of new dams and other surface water projects. Some projects would be completely exempt from the National Environmental Policy Act. Preempt state water laws and set a precedent of Congress picking and choosing who is worthy of water rights. In response to the worst drought in California’s history, Davis is an original cosponsor of a comprehensive water bill in the House to upgrade California’s water infrastructure. Using the Reclamation Fund, which is flush with a $10 billion surplus, the Drought Relief and Resilience Act would fund wastewater-recycling projects, provide a $2,000 tax credit to homeowners for the purchase and installation of water-capturing systems, increase water use efficiency, and provide relief to farming communities. The bill does all this without reducing environmental protection laws. Davis has also been leading efforts in San Diego to

Congresswoman Susan Davis increase drinking water. She spearheaded a San Diego delegation letter in support of nearly $9 million in federal funding for the Sweetwater Authority to expand a desalination facility.

Congresswoman Davis represents the 53rd Congressional District, which includes La Mesa, Lemon Grove, Spring Valley and parts of San Diego, El Cajon, and Chula Vista. She is a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, serving as the Ranking Member of the Military Personnel Subcommittee.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias

PUC Reform Bills: Too Little, Too Late

t’s the same with the state Public Utilities C ommission these days as with almost everything else: by the time state legislators notice something is a problem, things are so bad, so extreme that other people and agencies have already acted. Just now, almost six months after state and federal investigators executed search warrants on the homes of former PUC President Michael Peevey and a since-fired Pacific Gas & Electric Co. executive for whom Peevey would apparently do just about anything, lawmakers are finally ready to act. Unfortunately, their action is redundant, coming long after the cows have left the barn. Dollar bills, often rolls of 100-dollar bills, are equivalent to the cows in this metaphor. And the barn is the equivalent of the wallets and bank accounts of tens of millions of customers with gas, electric and water companies regulated by the utilities commission. For many years before scandal broke, the PUC under Peevey and several predecessors maintained a steady pattern favoring the interests of regulated, privately-owned corporations over those of the consumers they serve. This pattern extended from pricing to maintenance and safety concerns, from easy OKs of power plant siting to lack of concern over nuclear safeguards at the now-closed San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and the Diablo Canyon nuclear power station. It has cost consumers billions of dollars over decades, costs that climb each day. This has been achieved via a sort of kabuki dance, where utilities routinely ask far more in rate increases than they know they’re entitled to. The PUC responds by cutting the requests, still giving utilities larger increases than reality justifies. Then both the commission and the companies brag about being “consumer-friendly.” The dance went on unchecked for decades, legislators paying virtually no heed. The lawmakers also routinely rubber-stamped appointees to the commission named by current Gov. Jerry Brown and predecessors like George Deukmejian, Pete Wilson, Gray Davis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Each commissioner then served a six-year term without even the possibility of being fired for one-sided rulings. Now, long after this column exposed the corrupt pattern and with a federal grand jury working on this case, at long last comes a state legislator to “do something” about the PUC. That’s Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Rendon of Lakewood. One of his bills would set up an inspector general at the commission, empowered to investigate its activities. Another would outlaw secret contacts among commissioners and utility executives by requiring publication of all communications between them during rate-setting proceedings. Such “ex parte” contacts have long been illegal, but no one paid attention. So phone calls and private dinners like those documented involving Peevey, current Commissioner Mike Florio and executives of PG&E and Southern California Edison continued with impunity until earlier this year, when scandal broke. The Rendon bills are too little, too late. Far better to give the commission’s existing Office of Ratepayer Advocates some real power to fight and expose the ongoing misdeeds of the PUC. Rather than set up a new inspector general, why not make the existing advocacy office independent? And with no ability for consumers to protest PUC decisions anywhere but in appeal courts, it’s now far too difficult to do anything about wrongheaded, one-sided commission rulings. Why not allow consumers to sue in trial courts, where they could present evidence rather than being confined to working with evidence developed during the PUC’s own proceedings, where administrative law judges have been exposed lately as subject to occasional bias? Those are simpler, less expensive changes than what Rendon proposes, the only legislative fixes for the PUC now proposed. Even more important to cleaning up this long-corrupt agency would be for legislators to put a spotlight on any appointee proposed by any governor. Also, if lawmakers would hold meaningful, thorough hearings on the PUC’s questionable actions. This is already within their power, but even with the scandal in progress, it still does not happen. Lawmakers show no appetite for contesting any proposed commissioner or any commission actions. That’s how consumers got stuck with Peevey, a former Edison president whose corrupt practices were easy to foresee. So, yes, the Legislature can and should do something about the PUC, but the best thing it could be is wake up and perform the watchdog duties it has neglected for decades.

Treating Urinary Incontinence


. I’m having a devil of time controlling my bladder. Any suggestions?

. About 10 percent of men and women over the age

of 65 have trouble with bladder control, also know officially as urinary incontinence. Women suffer from this more than men. During urination, muscles in the bladder contract, forcing urine into the urethra, a tube that carries urine out of the body. At the same time, muscles surrounding the urethra relax and let the urine pass. If the bladder muscles contract or the muscles surrounding the urethra relax without warning, the result is incontinence. Short-term incontinence is caused by infections, constipation, and some medicines. If the problem persists, it might be caused by weak bladder muscles, overactive bladder muscles, blockage from an enlarged prostate, damage to nerves that control the bladder from diseases such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s. In most cases urinary incontinence can be treated and controlled, if not cured. If you are having bladder control problems, go to your doctor. Doctors see this problem all the time, so there is no need to be embarrassed. Your doctor may do a number of tests on your urine, blood and bladder. You may be asked to keep a daily chart about your urination.

Full Service Salon There are several different types of urinary incontinence.

• If urine leaks when you sneeze, cough, laugh or put pressure on the bladder in other ways, you have “stress incontinence.” • When you can’t hold urine, you have “urge incontinence.” • When small amounts of urine leak from a bladder that is always full, you have “overflow incontinence.” • Many older people who have normal bladder control but have difficulty getting to the bathroom in time, have “functional incontinence.” There are many ways to treat urinary incontinence. The method depends upon the type of problem. You can train your bladder with exercises and biofeedback. You can also chart your urination and then empty your bladder before you might leak. Your doctor has other tools he can use. There are urethral plugs and vaginal inserts for women with stress incontinence. There are medicines that relax muscles, helping the bladder to empty more fully during urination. Others tighten muscles in the bladder and urethra to cut down leakage. Surgery can improve or cure incontinence if it is caused by a problem such as a change in the position of the bladder or blockage due to an enlarged prostate. Common surgery for stress incontinence involves pulling the bladder up and securing it. When stress incontinence is serious, the surgeon may use a wide sling. This holds up the bladder and narrows the urethra to prevent leakage. Even if treatment is not fully successful, management of incontinence can help you feel more relaxed and comfortable about the problem.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Multiple Sclerosis Medication Costs Rising at “Alarming” Rate

ver the past 20 years, the costs of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) medication have risen at an “alarming” rate, according to research published in Neurology. Researchers from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Oregon State University (OSU) compared the trends in annual drug costs for nine disease modifying therapies (DMT) for MS over the past two decades in order to determine the influences on rising costs. I think it is important to note that just 22 years ago, there were no DMT for MS on the market. The first DMT that hit the U.S. was BetaSeron in September of 1993. At that time insurance didn’t cover any of it. The demand was so high, MS patients had to be put in a lottery by their doctor. When your number was called, you received the medication (subcutaneous, every other day injection). The makers racked in the bucks those first couple years as they came out with a BetaSeron “credit card.” At almost $1000 per month the pharmaceutical did fairly well or at the very least the patients did not, financially. The researchers of this study, examined DMT costs to general and prescription drug inflation during the period between 1993 and 2013. Specifically, the path of the rising cost of MS first generation DMTs interferon (IFN) beta 1b, IFN beta 1a IM, and glatiramer acetate were examined alongside contemporary biologic tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors. “The inexplicable increase in the cost of MS

drugs, particularly older, firstgeneration drugs, is at odds with how we think the marketplace should work,” the study’s lead author Daniel M. Hartung, PharmD, MPH, explained in a press release. “A growth in the number of MS drugs should lower costs for patients. What we see here is the opposite happened: costs have risen sharply, and at a pace that’s far greater than drugs in a similar biologic class.” The researchers found that first generation DMTs – which originally cost between $8,000 and $11,000 annually in the earlier portion of the study period – cost approximately $60,000 annually today. Again, the big difference for patience is that now insurance absorbs most of the cost, whereas they didn’t put out a cent in the drugs infancy. These agents have increased annually at rates of five to seven percent greater than prescription drug inflation, the authors estimated. Newly introduced DMTs often were found to cost 25 to 60 percent more than existing DMTs when they entered the marketplace. The researchers noted significant increases in the cost paths of first generation DMTs when the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drugs; specifically, costs of IFN beta 1a SC (introduced in 2002) and natalizumab (reintroduced in 2006) increased after approvals. Additionally, costs jumped again following the 2010 introduction of fingolimod by the FDA. Biologics were not affected during these time intervals. “As a doctor, I’m deeply concerned about making sure these life changing drugs are within reach for patients,” study co-author Ruth H. Whitham, MD, FAAN continued in the statement. “The driving force behind this study was our experience that the high cost of MS drugs interferes with our ability to take good care of our patients. We decided to shine a light on this growing problem so that those of us who care for patients with chronic illness can work together and advocate for changes to drug pricing mechanisms.” The authors added that DMT costs in the United States are about two to three times higher than in other comparable countries. “MS DMT costs have accelerated at rates well beyond inflation and substantially above rates observed for drugs in a similar biologic class,” the authors wrote. “There is an urgent need for clinicians, payers, and manufacturers in the United States to confront the soaring costs of DMTs.” Source: Neurology, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Oregon State University (OSU

EVERYDAY with PastorLIFE Drew


A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART XVI

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 look at the second of two events that happened one day in the life of Jesus. The first was, as we saw last week, the feeding of the 5,000; now we will look at the events that occurred after this. Mark 6:45-56 “Immediately He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He sent the multitude away. And when He had sent them away, He departed to the mountain to pray. Now when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea; and He was alone on the land. Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed them by. And when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a ghost, and cried out; for they all saw Him and were troubled. But immediately He talked with them and said to them, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled, for they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.” Consider for a moment what the disciples had just been part of before getting into the boat to cross the Sea of Galilee, Jesus multiplied five loaves of bread and two small fish into enough food to feed over 5,000 men not including women and children, so much so that all that had eaten were stuffed and had 12 baskets leftover. If we couple this miracle along with all the others that the disciples had been privy to, we might think that their faith would be tremendous, but as we read the account, this was not the case. What was the problem? “For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.” Before we look in depth of what a hard heart is, let us first begin by realizing that any one of us at any given time can have a hard heart. Now let us look at what the Word of God the Bible tells us is the cause of a hard heart. In an effort to warn his readers (us included) of the dangers of acquiring a hard heart, the author of Hebrews reaches back to a time in history that his current believing Jews would be familiar with, the time when God delivered the Jews from captivity in Egypt. Hebrews 3:7-15 “Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of trial in the wilderness, where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, and saw My works forty years. Therefore I was angry with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, and they have not known My ways.’ So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ “ Then he brings us to the present and warns of how the same thing can happen to us, “Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” In examining the above text closely, we see the cause and affects of a hard heart. First, the causes, unbelief and the deceitfulness of sin; both originate in our own heart. Jeremiah 17:9 tells us, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked;who can know it?” They refused to take God at His Word (believe) even after all that they had seen and been part of. How many times do we do this? God has shown Himself faithful to us time and time again; then the next trial happens in our life and we are quick to worry, fret, be fearful, and question God. The affects of a hard heart are devastating, for the Children of Israel, they could not enter into the Promised Land nor God’s rest that He had for them. For any believer in Christ the affects are just as devastating: inability to enter into God’s rest; departing from the living God. What a terrible place to be.

UP AGAINST ITwith S. Buska


The Undoing of The Diet

o smug. I was going to lose ten pounds. I totally blew it. The diet, if you remember, was orange juice and coffee in the morning; a banana and granola bar for lunch; a tall glass of iced tea to last me through the afternoon; peanuts and carrot sticks for snacks, and best of all – dessert for dinner! No dinner. Just dessert. First mistake: I forgot to buy the carrots. I got the peanuts, bananas and granola bars, but I forgot the carrots. Second mistake: I passed up the boring, plain peanuts and snagged a can of toffee brittle peanuts. Well, they still have protein, right? Third mistake: I lost three pounds the first week. You should never lose pounds when you’re on a diet. You get overconfident and start cheating and from there on, forget it. The diet’s done. The first thing I started cheating on was the dessert. Yeah, the dessert. Crazy! How could anyone cheat on dessert? I could. I had cake and ice cream at a birthday party and counted it as one dessert. Then I had an apple fritter for dessert two nights later and hit the ice cream two hours later, figuring an apple fritter and ice cream is sort’a like ice cream and cake. Close enough. That’s all it took. Two nights later, I ate three big

chocolate chip cookies and an hour later, when a bowl of creamy chocolate pudding greeted me in the fridge, I snatched it up. What was I doing in the fridge? Don’t ask… Anyway, cookies and pudding – that’s kind of like ice cream and cake… I was okay all day - up until dessert time - until the day I woke up with a yen for Rice Krispies with two percent nonfat milk – not so many calories. I’ll exercise five minutes longer to make up for it. They say you’re s’posed to eat a hearty breakfast but I made sure not to fill the bowl all the way full and officially added Rice Krispies to my diet. In spite of all that, one Friday night I suddenly felt starved for a real dinner. They say it’s okay to take a break from a diet, as long as you go right back to it. Who’s “they?” I forget. Anyway, I headed up the hill to Pancho’s Mexican Restaurant with joy in my heart, an eager stomach, and my credit card. One cheese enchilada, one tamale, a plate of refried beans and rice later – all accompanied by a glass of white zin to celebrate my downfall – I was full enough to last me a week. The next day I went right down to Ralphs and bought the missing carrots and a can of regular, boring peanuts. I was determined: I would stick to my original diet. At home I cut the carrots into munchy snack-size sticks. I

put some peanuts in a tiny custard cup so I wouldn’t eat too many. I poured a tall glass of calorie-free iced tea and picked up my Kindle, ready to read and watch those pounds run away. Dumb me. Pounds don’t run away. They don’t even walk away. They creep away silently in the night and come back early in the morning right before you step on the scale. As of today, I weigh exactly the same as I weighed the day I started my famous – or infamous – Dessert Diet. Unlike me, my dad is wise and super self-disciplined. He’s never been overweight or underweight. When we start talking diets, he says his is simple: “Gain weight – eat more; lose weight – eat less.” Ah, the simplicity of wisdom.

GHD recognizes San Diego Blood Bank

The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a public agency that supports health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County, recently hosted a check presentation ceremony celebrating a $30,000 grant to the San Diego Blood Bank (SDBB), the primary supplier of blood to the majority of hospitals in San Diego County. The GHD grant will support year-round SDBB programs, including assisting in the purchase of new bloodmobile. About half of the Blood Bank’s blood supply is collected annually at blood drives using one of SDBB’s 10 bloodmobiles at a variety of San Diego County locations. More than 230 mobile blood drives are held annually in the East County, said SDBB offi-

cials. SDBB also operates six local donor centers. In addition, the GHD grant will assist in funding the Blood Bank’s annual “Winter Wishes” program that features the delivery of plush, stuff-animal toys to patients who find themselves admitted to Sharp Grossmont Hospital during the December holiday season. Last December, about 300 Snoopy dogs were delivered as free gifts to patients. Also, the GHD grant will help support the Blood Bank’s annual Chargers Blood Drive, the community’s longest-running, life-saving event of the year and one of the largest single-day blood drives in the nation. Over the past 35 years, the Chargers Blood Drive has collected more than 70,000 pints of blood. Founded in 1950, SDBB is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit that serves hospitals in San Diego, Orange, Imperial and Los Angeles counties with blood transfusion products and reference laboratory services. SDBB’s Cord Blood Program provides lifesaving stem cell transplants to patients worldwide. For more information, visit
