LEMON GROVE —- In honor of National Photography Month, the Lemon Grove Library is delighted to share the work of the talented members of the Lemon Grove Photo Group. The photographs will be in display through the month of August. The group formed out of a sad experience. Ed Schaffroth was their photo instructor for a class that was a part of the Grossmont Adult Education. In the summer of 2013, Schaffroth became ill and died later that summer. The Adult Ed department had no one to replace Ed and many of them wanted to keep up with their photography. Lee Logue began looking of a place for the group to meet and found a location at the Senior Center of Lemon Grove. They met there for several years until they moved to

the new Lemon Grove Library, where they currently meet. Through attrition they have about half of the original group. The rest have joined the group over the years. The group has 31 people on it’s email list. At any one meeting most will be there unless they are on a photo excursion somewhere around the world. This is a very mobile group. While there are many in the group that qualify as seniors, it is not just a senior group. They have had people in the group ranging from college age to octogenarians. The group is actually open to any age including school age but due to the times they meet it is difficult for many of the younger age people to attend, although many have expressed interest in attending if they met at a different time.

The level of skills for the group are as varied as the members themselves. Most are there to have fun and enjoy photography while improving the images that they take. However, there are a few that enter and win photo contests and others that regularly sell their photographs. Everyone is always improving their skill level but there is no competition between members as to who is better than someone else. If the group where to have a mission statement – which it doesn’t – it would be something like: ‘The enjoyment of the various fields of photography and the camaraderie of people who love photography.’ The group meets on Mondays.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Freeing Convicts Via Brown’s Wide-Ranging Parole Initiative



or years, Gov. Jerry Brown could hide behind the fig leaf of a federal court order in turning tens of thousands of convicts loose in a program he called “prison realignment.” Prisons lost almost one-third of their occupants to county jails and streets all around the state. Most of those released or paroled were so-called “minor” criminals; very few rapists, murderers or armed robbers have won early releases. This satisfied the courts, which all the way up to the level of the U.S. Supreme Court had upheld an order to reduce prison populations. Then came the 2014 Proposition 47, which reclassified many previous felonies as misdemeanors carrying far smaller penalties and no “three-strikes” implications. Felony arrests fell to levels unseen in 50 years. One reason: Thefts below the value of $950 are no longer felonies. Because realignment has caused overcrowding in county jails, most thievery at that level goes unpunished; often perpetrators are not even pursued because of police frustration with the changed rules. One apparent result – and no, the link has not been proven beyond statistical doubt – is more property crime in many places, while violent crime has remained relatively stable over the last five years. The increase is official; what’s unproven is the direct cause-and-effect link to Proposition 47. All this is not enough for Brown, who has a new initiative before voters, on the November ballot as Proposition 57. This one allows early paroles for legally defined non-violent prisoners in exchange for certain achievements and good behavior. The governor spent millions of dollars this spring to qualify his measure, mostly from funds he raised but largely did not spend while winning reelection in 2014. Brown calls his new measure “straightforward,” saying it will let only judges, and no longer prosecutors, decide which juveniles aged 14 and over to try in adult court. He says it will speed paroles for some nonviolent offenders, while setting up a system of credits allowing inmates earlier releases if they get high school and college degrees while imprisoned, and “take charge of their lives.” This measure figures to let loose thousands more inmates atop those already released. What Brown has never said, but a spokesman admitted to a reporter while the initiative petitions were still circulating (at about $5 per valid voter signature) is that some persons convicted of crimes like assault with a deadly weapon, soliciting murder, elder or child abuse, arson and human trafficking might get speedier paroles. The disingenuous hype Brown applies to his proposal by saying it would affect only “non-violent prisoners who can change their criminal thinking…” might be similar to the outright lie told for years by the state prison department, which denied for years allowing serious violent criminals into inmate firefighting camps, where there is limited supervision. Of course, when that oft-repeated claim was disproven, Brown said nothing and disciplined no one. No one knows how state parole panels will ever be sure that any prisoner has “changed their criminal thinking,” or whether crime rates might increase under this new Brown plan. A close Brown aide said almost all those covered under the new initiative also could be affected by realignment. “This has a chance of providing a carrot of early release for them,” the aide said. “It won’t work for everyone. But the alternative is a system offering no incentives for people to straighten themselves out.” Former seminarian Brown couches his measure in moral terms and maintains California “still does not have a durable plan to deal with prison overcrowding.” His initiative could also save many millions in prison costs. But at what price? Burglaries are up. Car thefts, too. So is shoplifting. Would other crimes rise with a new flow of inmates leaving prisons? No one knows. For sure, prosecutors say they’re worried, and not only because this proposition would decrease their authority a bit. In one blog published by the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, prosecutors called the measure a “full-fledged assault on public safety,” claiming it would allow parole boards to ignore sentencing enhancements for prior offenses including rape, torture and murder. The initiative is billed as a humanitarian measure, just like Proposition 47 was when it passed by almost a 3-2 margin. No one knows whether voters this fall will heed some of that measure’s apparent results.

. What is acetaminophen and why do I see

it listed on so many products in my medicine cabinet?

Right: Acetaminophen metabolism


Acetaminophen is the most widely used pain-reliever and fever-reducer in the world. It is contained in more than 100 products. Tylenol is the best known over-the-counter (OTC) acetaminophen product. It is also a component of well known prescription drugs such as Darvocet and Percocet. Acetaminophen also is known as paracetamol and N-acetyl-p-aminophenol (APAP). Acetaminophen is available without a prescription. Follow the directions on the package label carefully. If your doctor prescribes it for you, the prescription label will tell you how often to take it. Taking too much acetaminophen can lead to liver damage. The risk for liver damage may be increased if you drink three or more alcoholic drinks while using medicines that contain acetaminophen. The toxic dose of acetaminophen after a single acute ingestion is about 7 grams in adults. The at-risk dose may be lower in some susceptible populations, such as alcohol abusers. When dosing recommendations are followed, the risk of liver toxicity is extremely small. Acetaminophen is one of the most common pharmaceutical agents involved in overdose, as reported to the American Association of Poison Control Centers. One of the problems with acetaminophen is its widespread use. You have to check your medicine cabinet to see what products contain acetaminophen. Then, if you’re taking more than one medication, be sure you don’t exceed the maximum daily dose. Acetaminophen should not be taken for high fever, for fever lasting more than three days, or for recurrent fever without a doctor’s supervision. There are basically two types of over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers. Some contain acetaminophen and others contain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Examples of OTC NSAIDs are aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil), and naproxen sodium (Aleve). NSAIDs are associated with stomach distress. You should talk to your doctor before using NSAIDS if you are over 60, taking prescription blood thinners, have stomach ulcers or other bleeding problems. NSAIDs can also cause reversible damage to the kidneys. The risk of kidney damage may increase in people who are over 60, have high blood pressure, heart disease or pre-existing kidney disease, and people who are taking a diuretic. You should talk with your healthcare professional if you have questions about using an OTC medicine before using it in combination with other medicines -- either OTC or prescription medicine. Combining prescription medicines and OTC medicines can lead to problematic drug interactions. All older adults should consult their doctors before taking any OTC medication or herbal. Often, older adults use many drugs at the same time, including prescription and OTC drugs. They also process drugs differently than younger adults. This is why older adults need to be especially careful about drug-drug interactions. If you’re a senior, talk with your doctor about all of the drugs and herbal health products you take. He or she can tell you whether you are at risk for having a bad reaction from taking an OTC drug.

Antioxidant therapies may help in the fight against neurodegenerative diseases


new review examines the potential of antioxidant approaches for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Multiple Sclerosis. Certain compounds that are involved in oxidative stress look like promising therapeutic targets. For example, researchers are investigating the potential of increasing antioxidant capacity by targeting what’s known as the Nrf2 pathway, as well as developing inhibitors of NADPH oxidases,

which are key sources of reactive oxygen species. Other potential strategies for limiting oxidative stress in neurodegenerative diseases include reducing the production of nitric oxide, or preventing mitochondrial dysfunction. “There are still several gaps in our understanding of the basis of oxidative damage in neurodegenerative disorders; however, it is increasingly accepted that many diseases share common pathways of oxidative stress-related damage, and it’s likely that significant progress will be made in the design and implementation of effective therapeutic strategies in the next few years,” said Dr. Gethin McBean, lead author of the

BREAKING NEWS Doctor Makes Hearing Aids Affordable for Everyone

Digital Hearing Aid Costs 90%

Sreekant Cherukuri Board Certified Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor, and MDHearingAid Founder


Board-certified Ear, Nose, and Throat physician Dr. S. Cherukuri, a graduate of the prestigious University of Michigan School of Medicine, built a very successful practice helping patients with hearing problems. “I was often frustrated by the fact that many of my patients could benefit from the use of a hearing aid, but unfortunately couldn’t afford one. I then made it my mission to change this, making quality digital hearing aids affordable for anyone who needs one.”

It’s Nearly Invisible “I knew when I developed a new line of hearing aids that one of the most important requirements would be for the device to be hard for others to see,” said Dr. Cherukuri. “One of the biggest objections people have to wearing a hearing aid is that they are embarrassed. Our design helps people get past this concern.” Digital Hearing Aid Outperforms Competitors The new medical grade hearing aid is called MDHearingAid® AIR. It is sleek, lightweight, and full of the same advanced digital technology found in higher-priced devices, but at a small fraction of the price. “I couldn’t understand why everything in the digital world kept coming down in price, like computers, TVs, and DVD players, but not digital hearing aids,” Cherukuri said. Once the doctor started to realize his dream and was able to produce a device that costs 90% less, the industry was turned upside down.


90% LESS

Nearly Invisible!

Mini behind-the-ear hearing aid with thin tubing for a nearly invisible profile Advanced Noise Reduction to make speech clearer Feedback Cancellation eliminates whistling Wide Dynamic Range Compression makes soft sounds audible and loud sounds comfortable

Telecoil setting for usewith compatible phones, and looped environments like churches 3 Programs and Volume Dial accommodate most common types of hearing loss even in challenging listening environments

So How Does He Do It? Since 90% of people with hearing loss have similar needs, MDHearingAids were designed to meet those needs with user-adjustable features, avoiding the need for expensive customized hearing aids. This also makes it so easy for people to try the product, because no prescription is needed, even though it’s an FDA-Registered Medical-Grade digital hearing aid. With their 45 Risk-Free Trial, you can try it at home and if you’re not completely satisfied, just return it. It’s that simple. They even provide Free Shipping and Free Batteries.

Doctors & Buyers Agree, “AIR is the Best Digital Value!” “...This product is just as effective (if not more) than traditional overly-priced hearing aids.” – Dr. Chang “I have been wearing hearing aids for over 25 years and these are the best behind-the-ear aids I have tried.” – Gerald L. “ excellent quality-to-price ratio.” – J. May, MD “This is truly a miracle... I don’t even know how to begin thanking you for giving me my life back!” – Sherri H.

A Day in the Life of Jesus The Messiah



reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” As a reminder, we are doing this series that you may come to know the truth about Jesus as the Word of God the Bible conveys it. We are looking at the Apostle John’s account for he gives the most detailed account of Jesus’ final hours before the Crucifixion. What is recorded for us in John 14-17 are some of the most profound teachings of Jesus found in the Word of God the Bible. This also marks the last few hours of Jesus’ time with His disciples prior to His crucifixion. In John 15:1-8 we read Jesus says, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.” Here in our text, Jesus uses an illustration that we can all understand to teach a truth concerning the importance of abiding in Christ and His Word abiding in me. It is elementary knowledge that a branch needs to stay connected to the vine if it is to grow; receive the necessary nutrients; and produce fruit for which it exists. If it removes itself from the vine then the only thing that it can do is wither and die. This is the picture Jesus gives to His followers of how one will bear fruit in their lives. As I walk in obedience to Christ as is revealed in His Word; submit myself to Him just as the branch does to the vine; receive from Him the nourishment from His Word and allow Him to train me (lead and guide me in the way that He wants me to go) my life will bring forth fruit. The moment I remove myself from that place, nothing good will come from my life, as Jesus says, apart from me you can do nothing. Oh how we struggle with this truth, so many times we are bound and determined to prove God wrong and we venture out on our own trying to do this or that in our own strength and abilities always ending in failure. Unfortunately in much of the church today, much is performed in the flesh and there is a semblance of fruit but it is artificial at best, there is no substance to it, it quickly rots not able to withstand the test of time and trial. And for sure it brings no glory to God, only to man and his methods and means. Jesus saved me not only to go to Heaven when I die but also to bear fruit, much fruit now for His glory. I am not to live my life the way that I want to, doing what I want, when I want, how I want. Rather I am to submit myself completely without condition or reservation to Him and His will being accomplished in my life. What fruit is being borne in your life dear one’s? If you are not surrendered to the Lord then the fruit that is being produced in your life can be described by that which is written in Galatians 5:1921 “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Drew Macintyre is associate pastor of Calvary Chapel of Alpine and can be reached at 619-445-2589, or

an Diego State University offers a Master of Science and Advanced Certificate in Regulatory Affairs, as well as an Advanced Certificate in Intellectual Property and Regulatory Affairs offered jointly with University of San Diego School of Law. Students in these WASC-accredited, fully online programs learn about current laws, regulations, and good manufacturing processes mandated by major governmental regulatory agencies, specifically the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its international counterparts. Topics related to the discovery, development, testing, manufacture, commercialization, and post-marketing surveillance of pharmaceutical, biologic, and medical device products are at the core of these programs. “I saw an immediate difference in my career when I started the program,” said graduate Anna Freed, who manages a team of quality assurance consultants for a large, international client. “Starting the program showed my commitment to personal growth to the management team at my previous company, which led to me being designated the lead on several large and very visible projects, which eventually led to a promotion. I got offered a consulting position about a year ago, and was promoted to the management team of the consulting company in the last few months because of my performance and relationships with the client. I would not have had the necessary knowledge to perform my role if I had not completed the MS program.” These regulatory science programs are offered by SDSU’s College of Sciences in partnership with the College of Extended Studies. Prospective students must hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution. “I found that the SDSU Regulatory Affairs program did an outstanding job in presenting a comprehensive and thorough education in all aspects of the regulation of drug development,” said graduate Kenneth A. Kern, M.D., M.P.H., M.S., senior medical director at a pharmaceutical company. “It has helped greatly in my viewing the FDA and its interactions with pharmaceutical companies not as adversarial, but as a collaborative effort to protect the health of the American public. The breadth of training from the SDSU Regulatory Affairs program has really made my job easier, more effective, and more enjoyable, as the training has helped me find common ground with colleagues in all aspects of drug development.” SDSU is also partnering with the University of San Diego School of Law on a six-course Advanced Certificate in Intellectual Property and Regulatory Affairs – the only program of its kind in the nation – which helps students build professional skills that employers are seeking in science, law, and business. This certificate provides an interdisciplinary approach to expand the knowledge base of life science professionals working to translate scientific discovery into commercial products.

centers to assist former and active-duty military and to improve facilities and update classrooms at the Grossmont and Cuyamaca college campuses, serving more than 28,000 students. “Our board members saw a crucial need for an East County center that will provide students and existing workers skills they need for the rapidly-changing economy,” Bill Garrett, president of the board, said in a statement. “This bond measure will provide for an innovative economic development hub in East County to provide customized training for local businesses, workforce readiness, and career-technical education leading to skilled employment and industry certifications.” The bond measure requires approval by at least 55 percent of the votes cast. The district will not use bond funds for any operations, administrator salaries, or employee pensions, and will continue an independent citizens’ oversight panel to assure accountability for the use of all funds and annual audits to ensure funds are spent only as authorized, officials said.

Recognizing the importance of each of his constituents in the political process, Anderson is pleased to announce another community event in Santee this summer. “My top priority is making government work for you,” said Anderson. “This will be an opportunity to hear directly from my constituents about their needs, opinions and legislative ideas to make state government more effective and efficient. About 40-to-60 percent of the bills I introduce each year originate as ideas from the people I serve.” Councilman Ronn Hall, who is set to host the event on August 11, said, “I look forward to working with Senator Anderson and Santee community members at the upcoming community coffee event, where we can discuss the issues affecting our community members and ensure that they have easy access to those who represent them. I encourage Santee residents to come out to meet Senator Anderson and share their ideas and concerns.”
