Sycuan Casino Launches New Brand Initiative Campaign Focuses on Casino’s Close Ties to San Diego Community

Young Entrepreneur Enlists Littlest “Cats” To Help Big Dogs LA MESA — Thirteen-yearold Ariana Erickson (pictured above) spends her summers in a somewhat unconventional way. Instead of going to camp she spends much of her days honing her skills as a young entrepreneur through a business she created called Ariana’s Garden. Her parents can attest to the fact that she has always loved creating and selling things and has a great head for business. At the age of nine her school had a fundraiser to collect donations to help build clean water wells in Ethiopia. Ariana knew she could make things to raise even more money and this is when she realized she loved making and selling things and supporting environmental causes. Starting with jewelry and garden gifts she has progressed to a line of homemade bath and body products for the past two years. Combing the Internet looking for great recipes, she fine tunes them and makes them her own using simple natural ingredients whenever possible. Her latest creation is a solid perfume locket with essential oils which is selling like hot cakes. What started as small sales in the street in front of her house, has grown steadily over the years. Ariana‘s mom has taken on the duties of packaging, marketing, and promotions allowing Ariana to focus her efforts on production and sales. She now sells items at craft fairs, at a boutique shop in downtown La Mesa called Handful of Wildflowers, and to faithful repeat customers who visit her home shop. Happily, her parents have had to keep giving her a bigger and bigger space in the guestroom/office/ Ariana’s Garden shop. The sacrifice of time and space has been more than worth it knowing they are supporting this effort which has given Ariana such purpose. The amount of business and life skills this experience has provided is incredible. So far she has donated over $2,000 to a variety of charities and has helped to build clean water wells in

Ethiopia, to save the Amazon rain forests, to support the Second Chance Dog Rescue and now the Great Pyrenees of Southern California Rescue. In addition to donating funds to charity, Ariana always likes to support local businesses and social responsibility. This Saturday August 1st, she will have a sale at Handful of Wildflowers showcasing her products as well as a unique specialty item that only becomes available in the summer months. Ariana is currently selling “Cat Keepers”..... Monarch butterfly caterpillars not the furry variety that is. The Cat Keepers were created to capture and protect the threatened and often elusive caterpillars so the entire process can be seen from the caterpillar turning into a chrysalis and then finally emerging as a beautiful monarch butterfly. It’s very difficult to see the entire transformation as the caterpillars often don’t make it through all the stages due to a variety of factors. Monarch caterpillars are prone to predators and parasites, plus they only eat one type of food (milkweed) which must be available for the butterfly to lay its eggs on and to sustain the caterpillar. To add to the challenge, the caterpillars like to hide when they go off to become a chrysalis so people can miss the last amazing stage altogether. To solve these problems, Ariana re-

purposed and decorated candle lanterns creating the protective homes for the “cats” which can later be transformed back into a candle lantern. Each keeper comes equipped with a small container that can hold fresh food for the caterpillar. People who are nature lovers, or who want a nature experience or short-term pet for their children, will really enjoy watching this process unfold. Check out the sale at Handful of Wildflowers Sat Aug 1, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. (located at 8323 La Mesa Blvd). Parking is slightly limited on the main street of the Village due to construction but there should be parking on side streets and back lots. Free milkweed seeds (to grow food for caterpillars) will be available on a first come first serve basis. Additional milkweed plants can be purchased at Hunter’s Nursery ( ) in Lemon Grove. Please come check out the sale, learn a little about the Great Pyrenees, the Monarch’s and bring a little business to our wonderful local merchants! Twenty-five percent of proceeds will go to the Great Pyrenees of Southern California Rescue (www.GreatPyrRescue. org). To find out more about Ariana’s business look for Ariana’s Garden on Facebook, email Claudia Erickson (Ariana’s Mom) at cakerickson4@ or call (619) 248-6532.

‘Robbing The Hood’ Ruling Shows PUC Unchanged By Scandal


t’s time once more to roll out the lyrics of The Who’s classic 1971 song, Won’t Get Fooled Again when examining the California Public Utilities Commission, which nominally exists to make sure monopoly utility companies don’t overcharge their captive-audience customers. “Meet the new boss; same as the old boss,” went the words written by Peter Townshend. And with the PUC these days, nothing could be more descriptive. Get rid of Michael Peevey, the conventional wisdom went last winter, and the PUC would likely return to its basic mission and stop constantly favoring utility companies over their customers in every decision related to rates. And Michael Picker, the former adviser to Gov. Jerry Brown whom the governor named as PUC president after Peevey stepped down amid a still-ongoing investigation of corruption, made pious noises about transparency and openness. But the first major decision under his aegis reveals that nothing has changed. The PUC, founded in the early 20th Century to limit monopolies like Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric Co., has once again given the utilities just what they want. This decision essentially codifies a practice known as “robbing the hood.” Where for decades, the largest California electricity users have paid higher rates for their excesses, now they and small users will soon begin paying roughly equal amounts. This was explained by Picker’s PUC (although the idea originated during Peevey’s tenure) as a means of ending the “subsidies” small users living in apartments enjoy at the expense of wealthy folk who use wads of electricity to power their hot tubs and Teslas. Although specific new rates were not immediately set when the PUC early this month unanimously voted for the change, it is eventually expected to cost small users about 20 percent more each month, or approximately $10 extra for starters, the tab to rise as power costs go up. So it’s a reverse Robin Hood kind of thing, harming the poor and helping the rich. That’s how it earns the “robbing the hood” sobriquet. Of course, the PUC didn’t mention that the really big beneficiaries of the change aren’t residential customers of any kind, not even the wealthiest energy hogs. The largest benefits will go to big businesses like oil refineries and computer chip makers, which use enormous amounts of power. This proposal originated with PG&E, the same company indicted for criminal negligence in its fatal mismanagement of natural gas pipelines. The utilities will make billions of dollar more under the new system than they do now; just how much has yet to be determined. The sad part of all this is that there appears little hope the PUC will anytime soon diverge from its longtime pattern of favoring big utility companies over their tens of millions of customers. This pattern extended to natural gas during the early 2000s, when PG&E and Sempra Energy, parent of both Southern California Gas Co. and San Diego Gas & Electric, got the Peevey-led PUC to push hard to bring liquefied natural gas (LNG) from places like Indonesia and Australia to California at enormous expense. This state needed LNG, said both the utilities and the PUC, because a domestic natural gas shortage was impending and the PUC arranged for the state to give up most of its reserved space on two of the three big pipelines bringing natural gas here from Texas, Oklahoma and the Rocky Mountain region. That plan was nixed when the state Lands Commission, then led by ex-Lt. Gov. John Garamendi and current state Treasurer John Chiang, refused to allow construction of pipelines across state-owned tidelands in Ventura County. Since then, hydraulic fracking has produced a surplus of domestic natural gas, putting the lie to all the PUC and utility company claims of impending shortage and consumers have saved billions compared to what they’d be paying if the companies were buying LNG. Still, almost no one heeded the PUC’s constant favoring the utility companies over consumers. Similarly, there were no large-scale protests when the PUC this month changed the electric pricing system, to the great detriment of most customers. Apparently, not even a criminal investigation can get reporters and the public they serve to see through the subterfuges used by PUC members and their utility company cronies. Which brings to mind the classic observation of Thomas Jefferson: “In a democracy, the people get precisely the government they deserve.”

To Your

Can I Get Rid of My Wrinkles? Q A

PAGE FIVE • AUG. 6-12, 2015

Living with MS with Dee Dean

. Is there anything I can do about all these wrinkles?

. The common causes of wrinkles include genetic influences, normal aging, sun exposure and smoking. People who smoke tend to have more wrinkles than nonsmokers of the same age, complexion, and history of sun exposure. Cigarette smoking causes biochemical changes in our bodies that accelerate aging. Here’s some advice from the American Academy of Dermatology about reducing the signs of aging: • Wear sunscreen every day because the sun’s rays can accelerate signs of aging. Use a sunscreen or facial moisturizer that offers broad-spectrum protection and has an SPF of at least 30. Be sure to apply sunscreen to all skin that is not covered by clothing. • Do not tan. Getting a tan from the sun or a tanning bed exposes you to harmful UV rays that can accelerate aging, causing wrinkles, age spots, a blotchy complexion and even skin cancer. • Moisturize. Moisturizing traps water in the skin, which can help reduce the appearance of some fine lines and make your complexion look brighter and younger. • Test products, even those labeled hypoallergenic. To test, dab a small amount of the product on your inner forearm twice a day for four to five days. If you do not have a reaction, it is probably safe to apply to your face. • Use products as directed. Active ingredients can do more harm than good when too much is used. Applying more than directed can cause clogged pores, a blotchy complexion, or other unwanted effects. • Stop using products that sting or burn unless prescribed by a dermatologist. Irritating the skin makes signs of aging more noticeable. • Limit the number of skin products that you use. Using too many products on your skin, especially more than one antiaging product, tends to irritate the skin. This often makes signs of aging more noticeable. • Shop smart. People often think that the more expensive a product is, the more effective it will be. This is not always the case. There are some very effective, affordable products in the skin care aisles of your local stores. • Give products time to work. While a moisturizer can immediately plump up fine lines, most products take at least six weeks to work. Sometimes it can take three months. How about wrinkle creams?

Full Service Salon

Research suggests that some wrinkle creams contain ingredients that may improve the appearance of wrinkles. But many of these ingredients haven’t undergone scientific research to prove this benefit. The American Academy of Dermatology says that over-the-counter wrinkle creams do little or nothing to reverse wrinkles. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved prescription tretinoin cream to treat aging skin. In addition, the FDA has also approved lasers for skin treatment. Tretinoin cream, which is a vitamin A derivative, is sold under the brand names such as Atralin, Avita, Renova, Retin-A and Tretin-X. Tretinoin cream is approved for reducing the appearance of fine wrinkles, roughness and dark spots. It will not eliminate wrinkles. It will not restore skin. Lasers remove layers of skin. Laser therapy is an outpatient treatment requiring anesthesia.

Canadian Pediatric Demyelinating Disease Network Funding To Help Expand MS Research


he Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and the Multiple Sclerosis Scientific Research Foundation (MSSRF) have announced the awarding of a $3.2 million grant in support of the Canadian Pediatric Demyelinating Disease Network. Canada has the highest rate of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in the world, and is one of the most common neurological diseases affecting Canadian young adults. Established in 2004, the Network has grown to become one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis (PMS) research organizations, providing researchers with a unique resource to act as a clearing house and forum for important insights about the cause and progression of MS — a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system comprising the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 40, and the unpredictable effects of MS last for the rest of their lives. The MS Society provides services to people with MS and their families and funds research to find the cause and cure for this disease. The Network says funding from the new grant will allow it to build on the findings of existing studies to help uncover the progressive burden of PMS from childhood through young adulthood. They note further that these discoveries will also help researchers better understand the burden experienced by adults with MS, and aid in early identification of risk factors and imaging cues that are suggestive of the disease’s onset, toward improving treatment outcomes and potentially preventing MS. “This funding will allow us to study the impact of MS and of other demyelinating conditions on quality of life, learning and academic success, physical activity and overall health and exercise in affected children and adolescents. We will also evaluate the impact of MS on brain growth and variances in the immune system,” says Dr. Brenda Banwell, a renowned Canadian MS neurologist,

chief of neurology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, adjunct scientist at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Senior Associate Scientist, Neurosciences & Mental Health Staff Neurologist, Neurology and Associate Professor, Paediatrics (Neurology) at the SickKids Research Institute in Toronto, and lead principal investigator of the study. Banwell believes that the new funding will fuel research that will provide a window into the earliest aspects of the disease and help researchers ask unique questions that cannot be asked in adult-onset MS. Most institutions within the Network will take on new objectives as part of the “Progressive degeneration from onset in PMS: Evaluation of clinical and health-related quality of life, early loss of brain integrity and accelerated immunological senescence” study. Under the leadership of Dr. Banwell, these objectives will focus on quality of life of children and adolescents living with MS, the impact of the disease on their transition to young adulthood, the impact of the disease on parents and caregivers, the impact of MS on brain development and cognitive performance, and the impact of MS on immune cells “Specifically, our interest is in understanding what factors determine MS outcome in children with a first attack of the immune system of the brain or spine,” Dr. Banwell notes on her SickKids Website. “At the first level, we look at what clinical findings at the time of a first attack distinguish those children who go on to develop MS from those who don’t have any further attacks. We look at factors like age, sex, severity of the initial attack, whether they are critically ill or mildly affected at that first episode and how fast they recover. Then we look at what we call etiologic determinants — what the child might have been born with or experienced in their early childhood that might have led them to experience that first event and specifically whether those that develop MS have different risk factors than the children who don’t.” “Genetically we look at genes that are important in how our immune system behaves. We then look at the immune cells themselves in partnership with my main laboratory collaborators in Montreal. Our interest is in understanding how the immune cells of children at the time of the initial illness behave, and to see whether abnormal immune cell behavior persists over time in children subsequently diagnosed with MS. We also do very detailed MRI studies of the brain and we use these studies to look at inflammation- the hallmark of acute demyelination; as well as new inflammation and neurodegeneration — the findings that characterize MS….” “We are very interested in understanding why some children with an initial demyelinating attack do not develop MS. Does the ability to recover from the initial attack play an important role? Understanding the children who don’t develop MS, despite having had that first attack, may hold very valuable clues as to what we should be doing to help other children. We have been encouraged to present our work at national and international conferences where I represent SickKids and my field. I’ve recently been appointed as the Research Chair of the International Pediatric MS Study Group , which has representatives from 40 different countries.” “Until recently, pediatric MS was poorly understood,” said Dr. Lee. It wasn’t until the creation of the Canadian Pediatric Demyelinating Disease Network (or ‘the Network’ as I refer to it) that the topic of pediatric MS gained significant attention among the scientific and medical communities.”

onsidering your children’s feelings and reactions to a big move is something that always needs to be a priority. For many kids over the age of 10, moving into a new home, and possibly a new school district, can become a stressful endeavor. If you’re planning on relocating to a new home with your kids in tow, some agree that it’s best to move during a summer break when you have school-aged children. However, it is also favored by others to move your children during the middle of the school year. So,

Another hidden benefit to joining a new school mid-year is that the novelty of being the new kid on the block can work in your child’s favor. Since everyone likes to get to know the new kid at school, this will be an additional opportunity for your child to gain from a move mid-school season. Although there is no right or wrong answer for when you should move school-aged children, the most important factor is that your kids are content with the moving situation. Listen to your children’s requests and share the pros and cons to each move. The more involved your child feels in the decision process, the more content they’ll be when a conclusion is reached.

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 7:24-30 “From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden. For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.” Then He said to her, “For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.” There is something of great importance that I want you to see at the beginning of our text, “From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon.” Jesus was constantly on the move going to where the people were and ministering to their needs. He serves as the example to everyone who names the Name of Christ. Jesus was very missions oriented, His mind was (still is) the mind of a missionary. What, you may ask is the mind of a missionary? Just look at Jesus, He was constantly going to where the people were to reach them with the Gospel. He did not build a building and sit in there waiting for people to come and see Him. This has been one of the major shortcomings of the modern church, instead of following Jesus’ example, nice buildings are built for a few to meet in and be comfortable for a few hours a week while the surrounding communities in which they live are dying and going to Hell. There exists in San Diego County many opportunities and needs in each community for the people of God to follow Jesus’ example by going into the schools and doing Bible studies with the children, going to the convalescent homes and ministering to the seniors; going to the prisons and reaching those incarcerated; going to the beaches and malls reaching people for Christ but it is only a very small percentage of churches that are involved in any of this. It is far more “comfortable” to sit in our pretty little homes and churches than follow Jesus’ example. Here in the region of Tyre and Sidon, a woman who had a daughter that was demon possessed entreated Jesus for His help. It would appear that Jesus went there to “get away” for a while and when the woman sought Him out it almost seems that He tried to discourage her. That would be the wrong conclusion to come to for Jesus makes clear in His Word that He wants all to come to Him; that He is not willing that any would perish but all come to repentance. Rather than discourage this woman from seeking Him, Jesus said what He said and responded as He did to draw her faith out showing how great of faith she had. We are able to come to this conclusion by what Matthew writes concerning this same event, Matt 15:21-28 “Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.” But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.” But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.” God’s Word promises that all those that “diligently” seek Him will find Him and all that come to Him must come to Him in faith for without faith it is impossible to please Him. God at times uses delays in answering our prayers to bring us to a greater faith.

EL CAJON — The East County community came together at a home of Jo Alegria, Cajon Valley Union School District Board Member, to discuss issues that are most important with California State Senator Joel Anderson last Thursday. The kitchen, dining, and living rooms were packed wall-to-wall, with people who were eager to hear from their Senator. With an astounding 170 people in attendance, the house was bursting with people excited to share their ideas. Anderson answered the multitude of questions about issues ranging from California’s drought to Veterans’ benefits and disability services. After the time allotted for questions, which went 20 minutes over the designated time, those in attendance shared how they believed the Senator came across as “genuine,” “straightforward,” and “considerate.” At the end of the long night of energetic discussions with his constituents, Anderson said, “My top priority is making government work for my constituents. I am grateful for the community members who came to share their ideas with me so that I can fight for them. I’m also grateful to Cajon Valley Board member Jo Alegria for opening her home for this important event. Jo is an asset to our community and is an outstanding representative on her school board.”

UP AGAINST ITBuska with S. Everyone’s doing it


ust be fun, e ve r yo n e ’s doing it: getting older. Toddlers, teenagers, young adults, old adults… If you think about it, you probably are, too. There’s not a person alive who isn’t doing it. Getting older is a state of being we enjoy for a lifetime. It starts the moment you’re conceived and ends… oh, shoot. Let’s don’t think about that part. Back to the point. Getting older is the one constant in your life, from the early days in the womb, which you probably don’t remember, to the graying–or-balding-of your hair, which you’re in no hurry to get to. But you can’t get away from it. The old saying stands, “You can run; you can hide…” but all the while you’re running or hiding, you’re getting older! Some of the consequences of this state of being are good; others not so good. You get taller, slimmer, hopefully not fatter; you get more feminine or more masculine. You, as they say, come into your own. After you’ve had a few decades of feeling quite pleased with the results of getting older, the consequences take a turn for

the worse-unless you happen to like wrinkling skin and creaking bones. On the other hand, a bit of wisdom usually comes along, too. Toddlers could care less about getting older, but teenagers? Remember when you couldn’t wait to be old enough to get your driver’s license? When you couldn’t wait to be able to order a drink, legally? When you envied grown-ups for all the things they could do? If you had an older brother or sister, you couldn’t wait to grow up and be allowed to go on dates and go to the movies or shopping without a parent hovering over you.

a different matter. You could ask a friend or someone a few decades older than you, someone who’s been there, done that. But mostly it’s up to you. The good thing about getting older, at any age, is that you get to decide how to get older. Granted, some things you don’t get to choose. But the rest of the time is yours. Last night I grew older sitting on the patio watching the clouds change colors, waiting for the full moon to make its appearance among them. Next week I’ll grow older throwing a party with KFC chicken, corn on the cob, watermelons, beer, and music by Tim Egan. I’ll share a secret with you: there’s another word for growing older–living. Enjoy!

Getting older after a good five decades of life isn’t quite so exciting, although, given the alternatives, it’s not bad. Getting older after a good five decades of life isn’t quite so exciting, although, given the alternatives, it’s not bad. If it just didn’t happen so fast. Too bad we don’t have the option of getting younger – or, if we happen to like where we are, the option of staying right there for a few more years. There are no classes to educate us on how to get older. There’s no Getting Older for Dummies book, only a Getting Old for Dummies. That’s
