Ford ASSET Returns to Cuyamaca College

Local Organization Committed to Bettering the Lives of Homeless By Andrew Johnson

For The East County Herald LA MESA — For many San Diegans without homes, finding a comfortable place to sleep can be a daily problem. Blankets often rot or mold, and once wet they can be difficult to dry. WilMat recognizes the hardships of not having a comfortable place to sleep and has made a commitment to bettering the lives of those experiencing homelessness. Wil-Mat, an organization based out of Foothills United Methodist Church in La Mesa, crafts the mats at Cali Comfort BBQ in Spring Valley. The name is derived from the founder’s name, Wilma Groh, who began making mats in 2010. The group, all of which are volunteers, meets

every Tuesday at Cali Comfort at 11 a.m. Donated grocery bags are cut into rings of plastic two to three inches wide. The loops are then strung together and weaved with a traditional loom. The group calls the plastic material “plarn”: a combination of plastic and yarn. Completed mats are distributed by the group in San Diego when they have around 20 mats to pass out. The group was honored with a Certificate of Recognition presented on behalf of California State Senator Joel Anderson on Sunday, Aug. 9 at Foothills United Methodist Church, recognizing the group for their dedication to improving the lives of homeless San Diegans. Anderson later remarked, “The Wil-Mat group volunteers are an inspiration.

EL CAJON — Ford ASSET, the only automotive technology training program of its kind in the county, is revved up to start anew at Cuyamaca College for the fall semester, and there is still time to enroll. The Aug. 17 start of the fall semester marks the program’s return at the Rancho San Diego college after a recession-driven downturn and the retirement of the veteran instructor who started the program at the college in 1992 put the program in hiatus in 2013. One of only three in the state, the college’s Ford ASSET (Automotive Student Service Education Training) is recognized as one of the best training programs in the world, said its new instructor and coordinator, Brad McCombs. Cuyamaca College’s automotive technology program, which enrolls an average of 300 students each semester, is highly regarded, drawing students countywide and beyond because of its industry-recognized certifications. It also receives strong support from General Motors and Ford Motor Co., which provide vehicles, tools and educational partnerships through Ford ASSET and GM ASEP (Automotive Service Educational Program).

They take time out of their day to better the lives of others through turning trash into something helpful.” Members recognized with certificates were (pictured above) Jeremy Nikodym, Jennifer Smith, Patricia Houchins, Paunpimon Atkinson, and Janet Hall. Since Groh’s passing in 2012, the group continues to preserve her legacy – a legacy which has grown to over half a dozen states where groups make similar mats. Jeremy Nikodym, current leader of the organization, became involved six months after Wilma began the group and is heavily responsible for the establishment of numerous sister groups. He regularly teaches others how to make the plastic mats and crafts looms and sells them to other groups who make mats.

Will Prop 47 Turn Out To Be A Fire Hazard?


“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft agley.” Robert Burns in his 1785 poem “To a Mouse.”

with Tim McCrerey Herald Guest Commentary


They Got It Right!

he recent article, "Colorfor nia," is in many ways a microcosm of the range of feelings in this country over the June 16, 2015 Supreme Court decision upholding same-sex marriage. (Obergefell Et Al. v. Hodges) The author seems to ponder all sides of the issue, assure us that he is a thoughtful and moral individual, then leave us to decide whether the decision marks either an affirmation of diversity or "mediocrity." Apart from the fact that the term, mediocrity is not defined or contextualized, there are many more than two ways to view the decision. I believe that most people would support the Court's ruling, or at least feel better about it, if they would actually read the court documents. (They can be found at Writing for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy maintained that the 14th Amendment accorded equal protection to same-sex couples, and "equal dignity in the eyes of the law." He upheld the importance of marriage as a vital social institution, but concluded that its definition could not be construed to exclude same-sex couples. Kennedy has long been an supporter of same-sex marriage and its numerous benefits and obligations. He reflected the majority view that the Constitution does not give states the power to deny 'rights' to individuals. All four dissenting justices (Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia) wrote separate opinions. Their tenor ranges from bewilderment to outright scorn of the majority view, but they do not argue against same-sex marriage directly. Chief Justice John Roberts

wrote: "Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal...But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it." He voiced no overt moral or legal objection to same-sex marriage, but seemed most concerned about the Court becoming the final arbiter of social issues. He went so far as to lament that the issue had been "stolen" from the people and forced upon the Court. Justice Samuel Alito argued that the majority Court had gone "postmodern," and he too believed that it had usurped the rights of the people to decide for themselves "...whether to keep or alter the traditional understanding of marriage." He voiced no real direct opposition to same-sex marriage itself. He also did not mention that the issue had come to the court in the first place because the "people" had been unable to decide the issue for themselves. Justice Clarence Thomas chose the safe, un-nuanced argument. He asserted that the traditional concept of marriage has been, and should be maintained " increase the likelihood that children will be born and raised in stable and enduring family units by both the mothers and the fathers who brought them into the world." He implied that legal same-sex marriage would somehow undermine the stability of traditional marriage, but he did not give weight to the fact that the ideal of a stable, two-parent household is not a modern reality. Finally, Justice Antonin Scalia ridiculed the lofty language and assertions of the majority and concluded that: "A system of government that makes the People subordinate to a committee of nine unelected lawyers does not deserve to be called a democracy." He

took Alito's anti-judicial activism theme and added vitriol. He also shared the minority's strict construction view that, since the Constitution did not mention same-sex marriage, it was not a matter on which the Court should rule. He was not deterred by the fact that the Constitution does not mention marriage at all, and that the Court had rendered decisions on marriage itself many times before. Justice Scalia's opinions most completely encapsulated the reluctance of the minority to find for the plaintiffs This reluctance was based more on a broad philosophy of the role of the Court than on the issue itself. It is fair to reason that the four dissenting justices were aware what the outcome would be from the moment the court decided to hear the case. That allowed them to concentrate their arguments on broader constitutional principles without standing in the way of a ruling whose time they knew had come. What the four dissenting justices and the author of "Colorfornia" have in common is a general sense of unease over the idea of same-sex marriage, but no unifying or compelling reasons why it should not be a legally protected right. In this case the Supreme Court reflected the thoughts and sentiments of the country at large. A majority of Americans support same-sex marriage. While a 5-4 decision is generally not regarded as authoritative, the Court got it right, and it's majority can at least rest assured that the majority of Americans who support same-sex marriage is steadily increasing.

obby Burns couldn’t have known it, but as California approaches what many experts forecast to be the worst wildfire season on record, his description of how good intentions can go awry, not always turning out as planned, might come into play here soon. Nothing but good intentions were contained in last year’s Proposition 47, which passed by an overwhelming 59-41 percent margin and has since seen the release of almost 4,000 inmates from state prisons and about the same number from county jails. They were paroled or otherwise freed because the initiative converted drug use and possession, plus some other previous felony crimes, into misdemeanors with much lighter sentences. Each year down the line, too, about 40,000 offenders who would otherwise have been convicted of felonies will now be found guilty of misdemeanors. What does all this have to do with the impending fire season, to be fueled by millions of acres of wildlands thoroughly parched by almost five years of drought? It’s this: While fire engines heading hundreds of miles from their home bases toward serious blazes are familiar sights to anyone driving California highways in fire season, every county and the state’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, better known as CalFire, also depend on thousands of state prison and county jail inmates to battle the worst conflagrations. About 4,000 participated last year. These crews draw from the trustiest of prisoners. They must be serving a minimum of 15 to 18 months to make training them worthwhile. They must have no history of gang-related, sexual or violent crimes. Because fire bases are much less secure than prisons, jails or other penal camps, they can’t have any history of escape attempts. These are almost exclusively low-level offenders. Basically, the very sort of prisoners most likely to see sentences shortened by Proposition 47. No one is quite certain yet how much that will cut into the pool of suitable prisoners available for fire duty, which sees inmates leaving secure facilities up to four days a week even when there’s no fire crisis. If there’s no fire to work, they often clear brush and perform other fire prevention and mitigation duties. It’s an aspect of convict life few if any voters considered before voting on Proposition 47. Yes, they heard a lot of about possible recidivism, speculation about how many of the newly-released prisoners would be back in the justice system again soon for new offenses. Predictions differed on that one, and so far, recidivism has varied widely, from as few as nine percent of those released to some counties in the law’s first three months of operation up to 60 percent in others. The fear is that offenders smart enough to keep each haul of shoplifted goods or forged and deliberately bounced checks under $950 will be back again and again, released each time because their crimes are small enough to be considered minor. Of course, even if some of these folks slip up and steal enough to go back to jail or prison for a low-level felony, there’s some question whether they’d be allowed onto fire crews, with their relative ease of escape. That’s often judged case by case. So recidivism may not help replenish the inmate firefighting pool depleted by Proposition 47. And there’s the fact that the initiative was sold in part as a money saver. Shifting thousands of prisoners away from the penal system was supposed to save untold millions of dollars. But more misdemeanor prosecutions have meant increased workloads for city attorneys who often handle those lower-level criminal cases, increasing pressure to expand their staffs. If it reduces inmate fire crews, as expected at this time of anticipated great need for them, there will also be costs for hiring and training new civilian firefighters. It all adds up to a classic situation of the sort Bobby Burns decried. For sure, Proposition 47 is turning out to have wrinkles and expenses no one anticipated when laying its very well-intentioned plan.

To Your

As The World Turns...



I have had some nasty allergies all of my 72 years. Usually, my head gets clogged up. Recently, my ears became involved and I experienced vertigo for the first time. Is this common?


. We have to define terms first. Vertigo is the feeling that either you or your surroundings are spinning. It is more than being just lightheaded or dizzy, because you are subjected to the illusion of move-

If you feel your body is moving, you have subjective vertigo. When you sense that your surroundings are moving, you have objective vertigo. If you are experiencing vertigo, you should see a doctor for a check-up. Vertigo can be a symptom of a serious health problem. About one in ten people over 65 experience difficulty with balance. More than 40 percent of Americans will go to a doctor complaining of dizziness. Getting older is only part of the problem. Inner-ear disturbances are the primary cause. The inner ear consists of a system of fluid-filled tubes and sacs called the labyrinth. The labyrinth serves two functions: hearing and balance. Labyrinthitis is an ear disorder that involves swelling of the inner ear. If you get labyrinthitis, the parts of the inner ear become irritated and inflamed. This inflammation disrupts the transmission of sensory information from the ear to the brain. This disruption causes vertigo, dizziness, and difficulties with balance, vision and hearing. The following raise your risk for labyrinthitis: allergies, viral illness, drinking large amounts of alcohol, fatigue, smoking, stress, and some drugs. Labyrinthitis usually goes away within a few weeks. Medications that may reduce symptoms include antihistamines to reduce inflammation, compazine to control nausea, meclizine to counter dizziness, and sedatives.

Full Service Salon

There are other causes of balance problems. Here are few major ones: • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). With BPPV, one of the most common causes of balance problems, you get vertigo when you change the position of your head. You may also experience BPPV when you roll over, get out of bed, or when you look on a high shelf. BPPV is more likely in people over 60. • Ménière’s disease, which also can give you intermittent hearing loss, a ringing or roaring in the ears, and a feeling of fullness in the ear. • Blood-pressure medications and some antibiotics. If you are taking any drugs in these categories and feel offbalance, it’s worth discussing with your doctor.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Researchers May Have Discovered Why Multiple Sclerosis is More Common in Women?


o m e n are more likely to develop autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS), and a lab accident has come closer to determining the reasoning behind this, according to findings published in The Journal of Immunology. Researchers from Northwestern University accidentally used all female mice instead of all male mice in an experiment which lead to the discovery that the innate lymphoid cell, a type of white blood cell, exhibits different immune activities in males versus females. A mouse model of MS was induced into the animals and essentially 100% of the mice got sick if they were female. However, a notable difference the researchers found was that male mice either do not get sick or experience lesser symptoms. That’s the reason behind typically using all female mice in studies of autoimmune diseases. “Women are three to four times more likely than men to develop MS, and much of the current research focuses on the question, ‘Why do females get worse disease?’” lead author Melissa Brown, PhD, explained in a press release. “Now, thanks to a serendipi-

tous moment in the laboratory, we are approaching this research from the opposite way, asking, ‘Why are males protected from disease?’” In the original study, it was planned that two groups of female mice were going to be observed. The first group was normal while the other group had a genetic mutation in a growth factor receptor called c-kit, which prevented the development of specific immune cells. In prior experiments similar to this study, the female mice with the mutation did not get as sick as the normal mice. Instead of using females for this study, however, male mice were used. “It was an honest mistake, but the results were striking; the male mice with the mutation got very, very sick,” Brown said. “Because this strain of male mice never get very sick, I thought there was some sort of mistake, so I asked the student to repeat the experiment.” In the repeated experiment, the results were duplicated. The mice with the c-kit mutation lacked type 2 innate lymphoid cells, typically present in bone marrow, lymph nodes, and thymuses of both males and females. The researchers hypothesized that male mice produced a protein that could have protected them from the disease in a way that inter- fered with the inflammatory immune response. Using this information, future studies can further uncover why males are more protected and develop methods that block diseases in females. “The hope is to target these cells in a sex specific way and provide a therapy with fewer side effects,” Brown concluded. “This early research may have implications for understanding other diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, which also show a female bias.” Source: Northwestern University, Journal of Immunology

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY with PastorLIFE Drew


A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART XIX

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 7:31-37 “Again, departing from the region of Tyre and Sidon, He came through the midst of the region of Decapolis to the Sea of Galilee. Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him. And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue. Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly. Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it. And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.” Once again we see Jesus on the move, not staying in any one place too long, there were too many people to reach with the Gospel, for He is the one that stated the truth found in John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” Should not we who believe in Jesus follow His example and do the same? In this account a man was brought to Jesus who was deaf and could not talk clearly. This is a common occurrence for those that are deaf for they cannot hear how words are pronounced correctly thus having nothing to mimic when they begin to speak. Jesus does something that, to us may seem somewhat strange, “put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue.” To be candid with you, I have no idea why Jesus healed this man in this way, He could have just said the words, “be healed” and as with countless other people this man would have been healed. Whether I understand the reasons and methods by which God does things really does not matter, He does what He wants and has a reason for it all. The prophet Isaiah put it this way concerning God’s ways, Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Jesus could have healed in this way simply to show that He does not always do things the same way or in a way that we may expect. What Jesus does next and how the man and others like him who had been healed respond, I find quite interesting. First, Jesus tells the man not to tell anyone, Jesus had told others that He had healed to keep quiet about it also, why? Again I can not say for sure, possibly because Jesus did not want people coming to Him only to be healed; to receive a blessing. Unfortunately this is how Jesus is portrayed by many preachers, teachers, and pastors today, “Come to Jesus and get your blessing” they say. Many come to Jesus for totally selfish reasons. How the man and others like him responds to this ‘request’ of Jesus I find most fascinating, they go out and tell everyone they can find. The reason I find this so interesting is because there is such great irony in it. Here Jesus told them not to tell others; today Jesus commands us to tell others and most people keep silent about what Jesus has done for them. A great tragedy indeed! You who claim to know Jesus, when is the last time you told someone about Jesus? Last week, last month, last year, never? Why? Has not Jesus given you marching orders, Mark 16:15 “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Matt 28:19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Oh, you say, “That is not for me.” Really! Tell that to Jesus.

UP AGAINST ITBuska with S. We’re all in this together


on’t let your Smartphone get you in a tizzy. Don’t toss your Android out the window. Don’t go running down to the nearest Verizon store or call your T-Mobile technical support to get you out of the jam. There’s help, and it’s not so far away. . . When your Smartphone or Android acts up, calmly consider the possibilities. That’s what I did after I discovered I’d missed dozens of calls, including some critical ones from my disabled son. First, the obvious: I looked to my Smartphone for an explanation. No help there; my Smart-aleckphone invoked its Fifth Amendment rights. But I did find out why I had missed the calls and that was a relief, since I was afraid I was going deaf. Turns out the calls were going silently in the night directly to voicemail. Yeah, some went quietly in the day, too, but you get my drift. I then consulted with my Smartphone to find out why he was suddenly sending calls directly to voicemail. Again, he wouldn’t admit to anything. It’s like he just decided overnight to send all incoming calls to voicemail. I hadn’t touched my phone settings in weeks, so I knew it wasn’t me.

At some point, you get desperate and call the cellphone tech squad or drive down to the Verizon store. I was rapidly getting to that point when it occurred to me to take a chance on Google. You never know what will turn up there. What turned up were comments from dozens of people just like me! Their phones had started sending calls directly to voicemail and they, too, had missed important calls, nuisance calls, and other calls of indiscriminate nature. One person had been missing calls since the beginning of the year; another had missed out on a job interview because the


Google acquaintances and, other than the battery dying every four hours, I’ve fixed that Smart-aleckphone good: no more missed calls. Every call is announced with a melody. The dying battery issue is another story, but, just so you don’t worry, I changed the auto-lock setting and the battery’s fine now. Several days ago, as I was reflecting on my findings on Google, a warm feeling arose in my heart. Fixing silly phone problems wasn’t the point. The point was: we’re not alone. If you have a problem, there are lots of people out there willing to share their experiences. They might not have an answer for you, but it’s good to know, we’re all in this together.
