For The East County Herald The 2015 Special Olympics World Games opened on July 25 and will continue until Aug. 2, allowing competitors the opportunity to demonstrate their athleticism. The games have taken place since 1968 and foster a sense of inclusion, importance of health, and empowerment to those who participate. This week-long event will also feature a local San Diego County resident, Betsy Cory, of Noah Homes in Spring Valley. Cory has been swimming since her childhood and her continued efforts have earned her a spot on the 2015 US aquatics team. For the past six years Cory has been a resident of Noah Homes, a community for adults with developmental disabilities, which has played a crucial role in her athletic and personal success. Through Noah Homes, Cory connected with Kim Holt of St.

Madeleine Sophie’s Center who has helped her achieve her athletic goals as her coach and has since won four gold medals in various athletic events including the 2014 Special Olympics Summer Games. California State Senator Joel Anderson heard about Cory’s fantastic achievement and reached out to her to present a Senate Certificate of Recognition for her athletic achievements. “I am deeply proud of Betsy’s athletic achievements and commitment to her training that has made her the athlete she is today,” stated Anderson. “I have confidence that she will perform her best at the upcoming World Games and I will be following her events closely!” Molly Nocon, CEO of Noah Homes, commented on the Senator’s involvement in Cory’s journey, sharing, “I so appreciate Senator Anderson taking the time to let Betsy know that people in her community are cheering for

her, and are letting her know they are excited that she is representing the San Diego community. She has worked so hard in training and she wants to do well and bring home the gold for San Diego.” As a result of her stellar athletic record and prior involvement with the Special Olympics, Cory will be one of a select few representing Team USA at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games Los Angeles. Regarding her approaching competition, she commented that she’s “excited about getting to the World Games and to see all my teammates.” Being selected as one of the participants in Team USA at the Special Olympics is a prestigious honor, given to the top 352 athletes of their respective sport. Cory is among only three Southern California athletes chosen for the aquatics team, and the only representative of San Diego.

About Time To Meter Ground Water Wells


with Eric Visconti Herald Guest Commentary

Colorfornia ecently, the United States of America felt a permanent and powerful change as the long standing debate over legalizing gay marriages ended with approval. While one side stood upon traditional ground that marriage should and always will be between a man and a woman, the other side stood upon equality in a nation that embraces the word “freedom” more than any other. The question still remains whether this is freedom or equality for all. When debates occur, key words become scrutinized for their meanings, and sometimes meanings can perceive to be changed due to common consensus. Where marriage is concerned, love is a keyword. According to Webster’s online dictionary resource, love refers to an unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another. I am sure individuals from older generations would be dismayed to find this definition in fourth place under more physical meanings when historically this has been the pure concept. As such, it is possible for men to love men, and women to love women in the sense of being willing to do anything to help another person. I adhere to this personally as there are men that I love, where physical context or definitions have no application. The word found in the Webster’s dictionary covering physical attraction more accurately would be lust, of course. In this state and in this nation, people have the free-

dom to live in many different ways under the parameters of state and federal law. There exists the freedom in this country to practice any number of beliefs. Within my own beliefs, I may or may not agree with choices of another person, but that does not stop me from considering any individual as a new friend. If there is a same sex couple in the community, and circumstantial difficulties or tragedy befell them, I would wish to be the first in line to offer help. Yet what has happened with the victory of same sex marriage is placing the importance of one type of person above all others. Same sex couples have lived together for years, and some have even been able to adopt children. The only probable victory may be a minor tax advantage in income tax filings. Life continues as it was. As it stands, this new change was followed by an extreme increase in seeing the rainbow in everything from social media, to advertisements. Perhaps the oldest known reference to the rainbow as a symbol is written in the book of Genesis, found in the Bible, as a promise from God to Noah that He would never flood the Earth again. One symbol used for multiple meanings is a common occurrence in history. For one group of people to bring that upon a state flag is a freedom of expression which is a loose interpretation of the Freedom of Speech granted in the First Amendment, would be an invitation to chaos. Freedom and equality are legally promised to other

people groups. Then, there exist thousands of symbolic variations to the state flag of California. Actually allowing that, would not only create the loss of the distinct identity of what California stands for amongst other states, it also creates a misperception of who we each are as citizens of this state. This is not our state, but we are California’s citizens. As such, we must stand together with our diversities to make a brighter and more promising tomorrow for our children. As California is an excellent example of a melting pot with different ethnicities, cultures, and beliefs, we become an example to the rest of the nation in many circumstances. This is the reason why same sex couples should stand and proclaim their views, and people who believe in traditional marriages should have their voices heard as well. Victories that are won by a group of people concerning any issue should be celebrated in light of the positive affects they can have for the entire community, and not just for that group. Not considering this simple concept for today’s issues as well as tomorrow’s creates a danger. Rather than celebrating our strength in diversity we can end up celebrating mediocrity in its place.

ater flows downhill. It’s a basic reality now playing out 500 feet below the surface of California’s farmland everywhere from the fertile Central Valley to the citrus orchards of Riverside and San

Diego counties. But it’s a physical fact to which government so far pays no apparent heed. That’s one big reason crops from Valencia oranges to nectarines, Santa Rosa plums and both yellow and white peaches seem smaller than usual this year. Here’s what’s happening: As surface supplies from the state Water Project and the Central Valley Project grow ever more scarce, farmers who can afford to are drilling their wells lower and lower, to the point where many bores now stretch more than 550 feet below the surface, reports the U.S. Geological Survey. Because most older wells reach depths between 50 and 150 feet below the surface, when deeper wells are installed, water from shallower aquifers flows to them when geologic formations permit. With well drilling costs now reaching about $225 per foot, and some wells as deep as 1,200 feet, a new well can cost much more than $200,000, far more than many family-owned farms can pay. Which means large corporate farms are hogging a lot of water, decreasing crop sizes and yields from smaller operations. Under current law, there’s nothing any farmer can do about it when a deeper well is sunk under nearby property, draining supplies that in some cases have lasted generations. “They’re taking my water,” says Jack Balama, a longtime fruit farmer on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley. “Basically, they’re drilling under my wells and I can’t stop them. So my nectarines and peaches are sweet this year, but not nearly as big as usual. It’s sad.” That’s why there’s a distinctly hollow ring when Gov. Jerry Brown touts California’s new groundwater regulation law as one of the signal achievements of his second run as the boss in Sacramento. Not only does the timetable for the 2014 law mean that significant limits on pumping groundwater won’t be enforceable until about 2030, when supplies could well be even more depleted than today’s, but at least until then no one will know who is using the most of this essentially irreplaceable resource. Which highlights the need for another new groundwater law, this time one that forces quick metering of ground water use. If the public knew for sure who is drawing the most water from the state’s limited underground streams, lakes and ponds, better known as aquifers, customers could react in whatever way they want, from boycotting water hogs to gravitating to their more conservation-minded neighbors. But this won’t happen soon. Corporate farmers are often big political donors; they saw to it that not a single legislator from the Central Valley region voted for even the weak ground water law passed last year. Plus, there has long been resistance to water metering of any kind in the Central Valley. Many Valley communities have just begun metering water use in homes and businesses, and some don’t have meters yet, even though they will soon be everywhere. The drought this year will see farmers around the state fallow 560,000 acres, the most in recent history, report researchers at UC Davis. This will mean 19,000 fewer jobs than without the drought. It means drivers traveling the major north-south highways through the Central Valley, I-5 and U.S. 99, will see vast vistas of bleak and vacant brown earth, some dotted with political signage casting blame for the scene on just about everyone but the farmers themselves. The signs indicate conflict, but this time it’s not just cities vs. farms or fish vs. people, as drought battles are often cast by political spin doctors, but it’s farm against farm. The trouble is that farmers whose wells suddenly run dry can’t always tell where their water has gone. All they know is that it has flowed downhill somewhere away from them, and the lack of any metering means no one can be held responsible. Which makes it high time for politicians from the governor on down to stop bragging about passage of a very meek law and start acting to pass a tough one that might actually bring some equity to California’s water scene.

. Does aging affect the functioning of your thyroid?

. The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the middle of the lower neck. It produces hormones that control metabolism, which are the chemical processes cells in the body perform to keep us alive. It should come as no surprise that the thyroid gland often peters out as we get older. The thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test checks to see if your thyroid is producing the right amount of hormone for your system. If the gland is making too much hormone, you get hyperthyroidism; if it makes too little, you get hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is very common in people over 60 years of age; the incidence of it steadily increases with age. When thyroid disease is caught early, treatment can control the disorder even before the onset of symptoms The symptoms of hypothyroidism include: fatigue, intolerance to cold, constipation, forgetfulness, muscle cramps, hair loss, depression, weight gain, dry skin, hoarseness and mood swings.


. How common is it for men to get enlarged breasts?

. Breast enlargement in males is common. About 30 percent of older men have this condition, which can be caused by hormonal changes or simple weight gain. When the usual balance of the female hormone estrogen and the male hormone testosterone in a man shifts, he can get “gynecomastia,” which is derived from two Greek words that mean “woman” and “breast.” Estrogen controls female traits including the growth of breasts. Testosterone dictates male traits such as muscle mass and body hair. Males normally produce small quantities of estrogen to regulate bone density, sperm production and mood. Gynecomastia can be caused by a health problem such as liver, kidney or thyroid diseases. And, this condition can also result from drinking alcohol or taking drugs such as steroids, marijuana, amphetamines and heroin. There are medications that can cause gynecomastia, too. If you have enlarged breasts, see your doctor for a checkup. Enlarged breasts can be a symptom of breast cancer or a testicular tumor.

. Do copper bracelets relieve arthritis pain?

. There is no scientific evidence that copper bracelets do anything more than make a fashion statement. However, there is no proof that the bracelets don’t provide relief to arthritis sufferers. Copper bracelets for arthritis have been around for a century or more. Many people swear that they work. Some doctors suspect that the positive reports are based upon symptoms going away by themselves. Folk remedies like copper bracelets seem to be harmless. However, they often delay effective medical treatment, so these so-called “cures” are not completely benign.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Mitochondria May Play a Role in MS Development and Progression

ecent attention to the role of mitochondria in the etiology of Multiple Sclerosis (what causes the disease) suggests that mitochondrial defects and mitochondrial structural and functional changes may contribute to the disease. Researchers studying mitochondria in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) believe abnormalities in mitochondrial dynamics impact cellular pathways such as inflammation and demyelination, ultimately impacting patients with Multiple Sclerosis. Dr. Peizhong Mao and Dr. P. Hemachandra Reddy, of the Neurogenetics Laboratory at Oregon Health & Science University, identified five key abnormalities in the mitochondria that are involved in disease development and progression. Mitochondrial DNA defects, abnormal mitochondrial gene expression, defective mitochondrial enzyme activities, deficient mitochondrial DNA repair activity, and mitochondrial dysfunction have been shown to play a role, according the two researchers’ article, “Is Multiple Sclerosis a Mitochondrial Disease?” that was published in Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) – Molecular Basis of Disease. “Neurons are highly dependent on oxidative energy metabolism,” wrote Dr. Mao and Dr. Reddy. “Deficient mitochondrial metabolism may generate more reactive oxygen species (ROS) that can wreak havoc in the cell.” A recent study published in Neurology, entitled “Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Variation in Multiple Sclerosis,” demonstrated

that certain mitochondrial genetic variants are associated with multiple sclerosis. For example, patients with haplogroup J variants were at a one to five-times increased risk for developing primary progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS). Another look into mitochondrial involvement in MS as conducted by Dr. Lukas Haider at the Medical University of Vienna. “Recent data indicate that mitochondrial injury and subsequent energy failure are key factors in the induction of demyelination and neurodegeneration,” wrote Dr. Haider in the article, “Inflammation, Iron, Energy Failure, and Oxidative Stress in the Pathogenesis of Multiple Sclerosis,” which was published in Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity. Since the brain accounts for such a large proportion of oxygen consumption in the mitochondria, cells in the brain are especially susceptible to oxidative stress, leading to the previously identified genetic variants as a result of damage. Without properly functioning mitochondria, cells within the brain cannot thrive. Dr. Mao and Dr. Reddy discussed a few therapeutic approaches to treat MS by targeting the mitochondria. These therapies are considered more neuroprotective than immunomodulatory and are different from current treatments for MS. Inhibitors of proteins that allow oxidative stress to damage the mitochondria, such as intravenous mitoxantrone, might delay the progression of MS in relapsing-remitting or secondary progressive MS. Enhancing mitochondrial

ddean@echerald.com DNA repair by targeting repair proteins to the mitochondria may also prove to be an effective means for treating multiple sclerosis, while also addressing the direct problem of mitochondrial dysfunction in the disease. At present, mitochondria-targeted antioxidants such as MitoQ and others can help address oxidative stress in the development of diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis by decreasing mitochondrial oxidative damage. Ubiquinone, the active ingredient in MitoQ, is identical to Coenzyme Q10, a well-known antioxidant. Some researchers believe that therapies such as these offer a novel approach to addressing the underlying cause of MS, and patients have reported it success in improving symptoms and quality of life as an alternative the currently FDA-approved Multiple Sclerosis therapies.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY with PastorLIFE Drew


A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART XVII

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 another event that happened in a day of the life of Jesus. Mark 7:1-23 “Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received and hold, like the washing of cups, pitchers, copper vessels, and couches. Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?” He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ “For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men--the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.” And He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ But you say, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban”--’ (that is, a gift to God), then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother, making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.” When He had called all the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear Me, everyone, and understand: There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!” When He had entered a house away from the crowd, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable. So He said to them, “Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?” And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.” Once again we see the religious group, the Pharisees seeking an occasion to find fault with Jesus and His followers. They were never able to find fault with Jesus in acting or speaking contrary to the Word of God rather in the going against their “traditions” which often had no basis in the Word of God. This occasion had to do with their tradition of the washing of hands before eating. This did not have anything to do with personal hygiene rather the belief that if they had touched something that an unclean person had touched, such as a Gentile and then eaten without washing their hands by their prescribed manner, then they would become defiled. Their religious practices had blinded them to the truth as Jesus was quick to point out. It is not what enters into a person that defiles them rather that which would come out of them, specifically their mouth. And what comes out of the mouth originates in the heart. You see dear ones, the Pharisees like many today think that they can clean up their act by changing their looks; clothes; location; etc and this will make them a better person. God points out that though this may make a person look different, without a heart change they will be the same old person. It is like people today that take their pet and try humanizing them by putting clothes on them, trying to live like humans and then when the animal (like a dog) does those things common to the nature of a dog (use your imagination) they get upset failing to realize they still have the nature of a dog. The only time any real change can take place is when one surrenders to God and asks Him to change their heart and renew their mind.

UP AGAINST ITBuska with S. Who takes care of the caregiver?


aregiving isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s lots better! And sometimes it isn’t. Some nights you collapse on your bed, crying, “I can’t do it.” But you get over it. Because that’s what you do. You give care. Either you don’t have a choice or you’re a saint and you’ve told everyone else, “Don’t worry, I’ll take care of him.” Or her. The question is - who takes care of the caregiver? Everyone wants to; no one knows how. If you’re lucky, someone in your family or a friend offers to take over for a morning or an evening so you can run wild with carefree abandon until the clock strikes twelve. If you’re not so lucky, you just dream about it - if you can get any sleep, uninterrupted. When someone asks how she can help, you know what to say, but you’re chicken to say it. “How about taking over for me next week?” Not gonna fly. So instead you tell them your “care-ee” would love to have visitors. You would love to have visitors. Maybe they could do a few bathroom runs with your care-ee while they’re visiting… On second thought, skip that last one. If they notice how exhausted you are, they might suggest you hire someone to take over

one day a week. “You need to take care of yourself,” they say with the wisdom of Solomon. Wonderful idea! A whole day off ! “Okay. Know anyone?” “No, but I’m sure you can find someone.” If you could, there’s so much to tell them about caring for your careee, it would take a month. No problem showing them the routines: eating, sleeping, meds, exercises, but what about the intangibles? What upsets him; what makes him laugh; what helps him get through the tough times… So you find someone. Great! An hour after you leave for a relaxing afternoon, you remember you forgot to tell them about that sensitive spot just below his knee. The hardest part of caregiving? The lack of sleep. No! The cleaning up. No! Seeing your care-ee give up. Seeing your care-ee’s health decline… Being yelled at by your careee when he or she gets frustrated. You understand, but it still hurts. The apologies come later and they help, but the hurt is there. Rewards? The rewards are sweeter than a strawberry sundae. “I love you so much. Thanks for taking care of me.” “It’s okay; go ahead and take a nap. I can take care of myself for a while.” Seeing your care-ee unexpectedly get better. A friend making your care-ee laugh…

You probably know someone who’s caring for a husband who has dementia or for a seriously ill mother, a disabled child, a teenager badly injured in sports or a car accident. If you yourself are giving care, you know: caregiving isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s better and it’s worse. My prayers go out to all of you out there who are caring for loved ones. On a personal note: My daughter Christy is a godxend. She lives with us and shares the caregiving with me on weekends and evenings. My sons, Craig and Bryan, stop by often and call Paul ’most every day. He loves talking to his “bros.” I’m blessed.

East County Chamber to `Dine and Dialogue’ with elected officials

SDSU Hosts International Fulbright Students

an Diego State University’s American Language Institute (ALI) is hosting a three-week pre-academic program for 35 Fulbright students from all over the world. “More than 120 universities nationwide submitted proposals, of which 60 were considered, and a mere nine were selected to participate, so we are a part of an elite group,” said Barbara Bass, executive director of the ALI. The program, which runs Aug. 3 to 21, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as part of its Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program. “While here at SDSU participants will receive English language training and a basic understanding of current U.S. societal values and norms,” said Joe Shapiro, dean of SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. “It is also meant to provide participants a sense of what American life is really like, beyond the books and lectures they experience in the classroom, and beyond how the media in their home country may have portrayed life to be like in the United States.” The Fulbright students will participate in English language enrichment classes consisting of speaking, listening and writing taught by ALI instructors, including Ann

Grossmont Healthcare District is supporting hospital’s Heart & Stroke Walk team The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a public agency that supports various health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County region, is continuing its support of Sharp Grossmont Hospital’s team participating in the American Heart Association (AHA) San Diego Division’s 2015 San Diego Heart & Stroke Walk on Saturday, Sept. 19 in Balboa Park in Downtown San Diego. The GHD board of directors recently unanimously approved a $5,000 donation to Team Sharp. AHA’s 24th annual San Diego Heart & Stroke Walk is expected to draw more than 7,500 walkers and generate more than $1.4 million in donations. Team Sharp is expected to have one of the largest teams with about 2,500 Sharp HealthCare employees, family members and friends, according to Sandy Pugliese, Sharp Grossmont Hospital community relations manager. Last year, Team Sharp raised more than $186,000, which included more than $16,000 from walkers from Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, said AHA officials. GHD has supported Sharp Grossmont Hospital’s participation in the American Heart Association’s Heart & Stroke Walk for the past 14 years with grants totaling about $56,000. This year’s walk will feature a one-mile route for “Miracle Mile” survivors – individuals who have suffered a heart attack or stroke – that will start at 7 a.m. followed by a four-mile walk starting at 7:10 a.m. The route will begin and end at 6th and Laurel avenues, San Diego. In addition to walking, the fundraiser will include an expo along with free health screenings and heart information, a kid’s zone, CPR training and live entertainment.
