September is Heroes Month EAST COUNTY — There are many everyday heroes all around us -- teachers, firefighters, soldiers, volunteers working to improve our communities, and even the young man or woman who helped their fellow citizen carry their groceries. Daisy Tate, Executive Director of the Veterans Supplemental Support Network (VSSN), wanted to make sure these heroes were given the recognition that they deserve. She spearheaded an effort to get local and state governments to recognize September as “Heroes Month” to honor local everyday heroes from all walks of life for their selfless actions in the service of others. In 2013, Daisy

asked her State Senator Joel Anderson to write a Senate resolution officially declaring September as “California Heroes Month.” Anderson introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 97 in 2014, and it received unanimous support in the legislature. September since then has officially been declared “California Heroes Month.” After the resolution’s passage, Anderson said “It’s important we recognize every local hero for their community efforts. These heroes and their good deeds inspire and encourage others to step up to help their neighbors in need. California Heroes Month is a magnificent opportunity to

recognize the importance of selflessly giving and recognizing those local unsung heroes within each community. These heroes and their good deeds inspire and encourage others to step up to help their neighbors in need.” If there is someone you would like to nominate to be recognized this California Heroes Month, Senator Anderson’s office encourages you to fill out the nomination form on his website atwww.sen.ca.gov/ anderson. Nominations are due by Sept. 30. If you have any questions, contact the district representative Collin Hoyos at collin.hoyos@sen.ca.gov or at 619-596-3136.

LA JOLLA — Blood diseases like leukemia used to be a virtual death sentence. However, during the past 50 years, improved treatments have given hope to millions of patients. According to the National Cancer Institute, the five-year survival rate for leukemia in the early 1960s was 14 percent. In the past decade, that figure has improved to 60 percent. There have been dramatic gains with other blood cancers as well. Myeloma’s fiveyear survival has gone from 12 to 47 percent, Hodgkin lymphoma from 40 to 88 percent. These changes have been driven by a better understanding of cancer, improved chemotherapies and the development of bone marrow transplants. September is national blood cancer awareness month, a time to celebrate advances in the field – such as the fact that the survival rate of patients in Scripps Health’s Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program has more than doubled since the program’s founding 35 years ago. High-dose chemotherapy can cure cancer, but it also destroys bone marrow, a potentially deadly side effect. Successful marrow transplants were the turning point that allowed cancer specialists to give the higher chemotherapy doses with the goal of curing the disease. Unfortunately, in the early days, finding a donor match was often difficult. “Thirty years ago, we had problems finding the right donors,” says James Mason, M.D. of Alpine, who directs Scripps Health’s BMT Program. “Back then, many people died waiting for a match. Now we have some amazing resources. For example, the National Marrow Donor Program has more than 10 million volunteer donors in its registry. It gives patients a lot more options.” To some degree, the improved donor landscape can be traced to better organization. But clinicians have also refined the donation process. Initially, marrow was removed from the pelvis through a large needle – an invasive and painful approach. Now the process uses peripheral blood stem cells, which grow to become marrow cells.

Alpine resident, James Mason, MD, is a hematologist and oncologist at Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines. Becoming a donor is as simple as giving blood. Finding more donors was only the beginning. Physicians and researchers have also developed better ways to “type” them to ensure compatibility. Newer DNA tests produce better matches, decreasing the risk of harmful side effects from transplantation. In some cases, people can use their own marrow. Before receiving chemotherapy, patients donate their own stem cells, which are frozen and transplanted at the appropriate time. This approach is particularly common when treating lymphoma. While high-dose chemotherapy, followed by bone marrow transplantation, is a proven lifesaver for many patients, it also poses significant risks. Marrow produces both blood and immune cells, so destroying it can expose patients to opportunistic infections. This has been a major research focus for many years and the work has paid off. New antibiotics and other drugs are helping patients resist pathogens. Another potential risk is graft versus host disease (GVHD). Because transplanted marrow often comes from a donor, it can sometimes generate an immune response against the patient. Fortunately, DNA testing has improved donor-patient matches, reducing the risk

Open Letter to The Community

September 4, 2015


Dear Friends:

e are sending this note to members of the community with great sadness. As reported in the media this week, an unfortunate accident on the site of our Tribe’s casino project led to the death of an employee of C.W Driver on the morning of

Tuesday, Sept. 1. More than a skilled construction worker, this man was a friend to the Tribe. We express our deepest condolences to his family and friends. As with all of the hardworking men and women who have contributed to the success of this project, we are deeply grateful for their unwavering resolve and commitment. We see them on a daily basis and have become close with many of them. Their safety is our top priority in constructing and operating our casino

project. As we observe Labor Day, let us remember the true nature of this holiday and reflect upon the men and women whose work has shaped the success of America. For the Tribal Members of the Jamul Indian Village, we will also reflect upon this man’s contributions to our economic development project and pray for his family and friends.

Sincerely, Jamul Tribal Council

The Weight of Thought


hought is something that is taken for granted, and often misunderstood. The Webster’s dictionary defines thought as an idea, picture, etc. which is formed in the mind. What then is an idea? This is defined more abstractly, but perhaps more accurately by Webster’s as, “a transcendent entity that is a real pattern of which existing things are imperfect representations” which asks more questions then it answers. The idea that reality contains imperfect replications of images of human thought closely resembles Aristotle’s concept that Heaven is a place that contains the original perfect examples of all things which exist and are seen in reality. It is true that all things around us which are man made were once just ideas or thoughts in someone’s mind. Are thoughts then imagined perfectly? One would have to ask if Henry Ford imagined car wrecks or costly maintenance. Yet this creates a second question of whether thoughts can be conveyed perfectly or not. The late Pope John Paul II wrote extensively, including on the subject of thought. Within a series of poems he wrote, thought was something an individual wrestles with entirely alone as Jacob was pictured in the Bible wrestling alone with God through the night. Normally people are not willing to share all of the thoughts on their minds, and the thoughts they wish to share do commonly present difficulties with conveyance. Often in conversation is a person lost for a word to accurately describe part of a thought. Verbal description alone can easily defy efforts

to convey thought completely from one person to another depending on the complexity. Often enough the complete picture of a thought is lost in translation from one language to another, or from person to person in the same language. The conveyance of thought is at the very heart of communication. While watching a conversation, the increase of body language can indicate that words lack what is needed to convey the picture, or that the passion one feels about the idea being conveyed may simply be greater than words alone can express. Thus, simply focusing on words alone would often not be enough to support full and clear communication. The expression of a person, the way the eyes appear, body language, and more can convey a greater picture of clarity. This is the same with music. Listen to a song on the radio that can be found as a video of on the internet. Now, watch the artist perform that very same song on the video. Then listen again to the video while eyes are closed. The image of love or life that the artist took time to convey can now appear in the mind with images that go beyond words. This is true of all communication Why then should so much emphasis be placed on clear communication of thought when in the real world there are time constraints on people fulfilling the responsibilities of life? The reason is that communication conveys thought, and thought as described above comprises reality. Albert Einstein deduced that mass and energy are the same thing in his famous equation of E=MC2. Energy actually has weight as shown in laboratory experiments of heating a sealed container of water and measuring

the difference when hot. Other physicists such as Richard Feynman studied mass at a sub atomic level to show that every atom of matter is in reality particles of energy balanced against each other in a symbiotic relationship at great distances relative to their size. Building upon the previous work of such renowned physicists, Leonard Suskind came up with a view of the universe’s mass as fields of energy in structural form in a concept he called the holographic universe. The three dimensional thought within our minds also take shape as fields of energy in manner with some similarity. God, according to the Bible, was said to have imagined creation first and then spoke it into existence over a period of six days. If God is a being of perfect thought and perfect energy, then this would make sense based on the previous information. We as people have changed the world a thousand times over by imagining thoughts and ideas and bringing to an imperfect existence through the work of our hands. We have filled the world with structure, music, art, and beauty. If the art of communication is lost, than this creative process given to us could be lost as well. If we enhance the communication we have with each other on a personal level and global level, then little remains beyond the scope of possibility as being presently unknown. The creative power of thought is a gift from the Creator of all things. How much weight we are willing to give the sharing of thought in life remains as a personal decision for each one of us, adding to the overall quality and beauty of life.

PROP 47 Looking Like a Well Intended Blunder


he more time goes by since last fall’s passage of the high-minded Proposition 47, the more it begins to look like a well intentioned mistake. This was the ballot measure that turned some “minor” felonies into misdemeanor crimes, thus easing the crowding in state prisons and many county jails. It has unquestionably helped some ex-felons rebuild their lives. But as crime statistics for the first half of this year pour in from around the state, this measure looks worse and worse, on balance. The numbers are bearing out warnings Proposition 47 opponents made in their official ballot argument against the initiative before it passed by a whopping 60-40 percent margin. “Proposition 47 is a dangerous…package of ill-conceived policies wrapped in a poorly drafted initiative which will endanger all Californians, said opponents, led by Citrus Heights Police Chief Christopher Boyd, president of the California Police Chiefs Assn. Here’s a bit of what’s happened since passage: In San Francisco, car burglaries are up 47 percent this year over 2014, while car thefts have risen 17 percent and robberies rose by 23 percent. In Los Angeles, overall crime is up 12.7 percent this year and violent crime rose almost 21 percent. That’s after 12 straight years of crime decreases in the state’s largest city. Some saw Proposition 47 as a mere expansion on Gov. Jerry Brown’s prison “realignment” program, designed to reduce prison populations at the demand of federal judges up to the level of the U.S. Supreme Court. Convicts on a de facto basis were already seeing sentences reduced or being shifted from tougher state prisons to county jails. Many lesser offenders who might previously have gotten at least some jail time were going free on probation. Prior to Proposition 47, this had cut the prison population by almost one-fifth, while not causing crime rate increases in most places. But the initiative does much more than mere realignment, switching many crimes from the felony category to misdemeanors. This includes most drug possession arrests, petty thefts, forged checks and receiving stolen property, with property crimes having to exceed $950 to be a felony. One result: Myriad drug addicts have adjusted their practices, trying to hold their take from “minor” crimes under that amount. Because of crowding in local jails, it’s common for misdemeanor offenders to be turned loose soon after their convictions. Proposition 47 supporters also touted the fact their measure allows all those crimes to be treated as felonies if the accused has previous convictions for rape, murder or child molestation or is a registered sex offender. Not enough, said the opponents, noting that persons with prior convictions for armed robbery, carjacking, child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and other serious crimes would still be allowed misdemeanor status for new non-violent offenses. They pointed out that thousands of convicts who stood to be released because their crimes would be converted into misdemeanors have prior records of violent crimes not listed among the most dangerous. At the same time, many convict firefighters (about 40 percent of crews battling major fires in California are convicts) have been released because of reductions in the category of their crimes. Prison-provided fire crews nevertheless retained the same manpower as last year during the early blazes of this wildfire season. No one yet knows if in-prison recruiting of some new firefighters will produce the same quality of work (several fires this summer spread far wider than officials expected) or whether more convicts on wild-land crews will now try to escape. Proposition 47 also earmarked much of the prison money it saves for mental health and drug treatment programs, aiming to cushion the effects of making most drug possessions no more than minor offenses. But enrollment in drug treatment programs has dropped, probably a sign that many addicts no longer feel pressured to kick their habits. They know they’ll never do significant time either for using or for most crimes that support their addictions. So it’s become quite clear the opponents made good points. On balance, Proposition 47 is turning out to be bad policy. Now it’s time for legislators to do what they can to fix the flawed measure. A start would be increasing the list of serious prior offenses than can turn the new “minor” crimes back into felonies.

To Your

Do You Smell What I Smell?



. My six-year-old grandson insists that I smell like an old person. Do you have any idea what he’s talking


. There was a study that suggests people can tell if you are old by how you smell. The study was done at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia. Researchers asked volunteers between the ages of 20 and 95 to sleep in T-shirts with nursing pads sewn into the armpits. After the five nights, the researchers put the pads in jars. Each jar contained cut-up quarters of pads from several people in the same age group. A separate group of volunteers was asked to sniff the jars and rate the odors. The odor of people 75-95 was judged to be less intense and far more pleasant than the scent of either young or middleaged adults. In general, men smelled worse than women, but that distinction disappeared in old age, the researchers found. Johan Lundstrom, co-author of the study and an assistant professor at Monell, said the study “shows that there’s yet another signal hidden in the body odor that we are somehow able to extract and make use of.” Previous research had suggested that body odor provides clues to sickness, gender and kinship. In recent years, scientists have shown that humans use their noses when selecting romantic partners. There is a negative connotation to “old-people smell.” Where does it originate? Here are some possible causes offered by experts on aging: • Stale air. Old people tend to keep the thermostat on high, their windows closed and shades down. Their homes are stuffy breeding grounds for mold and bacteria. • Dirty digs. It’s more burdensome for older people to do house-cleaning. • Unlaundered clothes. Doing laundry is difficult for many older people, so they tend to have soiled clothes around. • Incontinence. Sometimes the aged don’t get to the bathroom in time and don’t clean up properly. • Faulty senses. An older adult’s senses of sight and smell have dulled. Older people often don’t see dirt or smell bad odors. • Bad breath. As we age, the tissues of the mouth produce less saliva, which is the best defense against bad breath. Older people don’t brush their teeth as well as they used to. And dentures retain odors if they aren’t replaced when they should be. Digestive problems, such as acid reflux, are increasingly common as we age; these send stomach odors up into the mouth. • Dehydration. It’s common for older people to drink very little without realizing it. When a person is dehydrated, odors from foods such as garlic or onion become more concentrated. Urine is more concentrated, too, so just a drop of leakage can produce a strong smell. • The unwashed. Older people take fewer baths because they are viewed as a lot of work when you are just staying at home. And, there is a fear of falling in the tub. • Medicinal smell. Older people take a lot of medications, which can cause a subtle chemical odor to come through the pores of the skin. They also use a lot of mentholated products such as Ben-Gay and Vicks Vapo-Rub. • Cleaning solutions. We associate ammonia and Lysol with aging because it is used in nursing homes.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

New Study Unravels How Myelin is Repaired, May Suggest New MS Treatments apanese scientists have discovered new information about how the myelin sheath is repaired following damage. Myelin is a fatty substance that wraps around nerve cells and helps them to conduct impulses. The research could have major implications for how Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is understood and even treated. The study, titled “Inactivation of Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase Receptor Type Z by Pleiotrophin Promotes Remyelination through Activation of Differentiation of Oligodendrocyte Precursor Cells,” appeared in the Journal of Neuroscience on Sept. 2. The symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis are widely believed to be due to an immune attack on the body’s own myelin. When myelin is lost around nerve cells, this can cause unpredictable loss of movement, sensation, vision problems and feelings of pain. Myelin is made by special nervous system cells called oligodendrocytes. Although it is well-known that myelin can be repaired by oligodendrocytes if it is damaged scientists do not understand the exact repair mechanisms used by these cells. In MS, myelin unfortunately does not appear to be easily repaired, also for unknown reasons. The researchers, led by Pro-

fessor Masaharu Noda and colleagues of the National Institute for Basic Biology, wanted to study how myelin is repaired in mice with an experimental form of MS, induced by the myelindamaging drug cuprizone. They studied both normal mice and genetically-altered mice that lacked protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type Z (PTPRZ), which is a protein that may cause oligodendrocytes to turn into mature cells, rather than stay in a more immature stage. Following loss of myelin with cuprizone, the mice that lacked PTPRZ had more myelin repair than the normal mice. The researchers also found that a protein called pleiotrophin (PTN), seemed to be associated with remyelination in the mouse brains, suggesting that it may inactivate PTPRZ. When studied in vitro (in a dish), oligodendrocytes treated with PTN turned into a form that creates new myelin. Overall, the study suggests that pleiotrophin is secreted by nerve cells when they are damaged and lose myelin, and pleiotrophin2 then inhibits PTPRZ. This allows oligodendrocytes to create new myelin. The new understanding of how myelin is formed could provide the basis for new MS treatments, for example, drugs that inhibit PTPRZ or that increase

ddean@echerald.com pleiotrophin might be used in the future. Of course, much more research is needed and the investigators will need to find new compounds that act on PTPRZ. According to Noda, “This achievement was made possible by establishing oligodendrocyte precursor cell lines. Pleiotrophin is an endogenous PTPRZ inhibitor, but if synthetic PTPRZ inhibitors were obtained, then effective treatments for Multiple S clerosis should become possible. We are currently directing our research in that direction.” Source: National Institute for Basic Biology, Journal of Neuroscience

of GVHD. New medications have also been developed to combat this complication. Other research has focused on finding biological markers to identify patients susceptible to GVHD. One of the most significant advances has been the ability to transplant older patients. More often than not, cancer affects people older than 50. However, when bone marrow transplants were first developed, older patients had trouble tolerating the procedure – the treatment was just too harsh. This was a frustrating impasse, as many patients could not take advantage of marrow transplants. However,

new approaches have emerged such as “mini-transplants,” which are gentler regimens that allow people up to 70 to successfully endure transplantation with lower risk of serious complications. Bone marrow transplants and other blood cancer therapies have made an enormous difference in patient survival, but the work is far from done. Researchers and clinicians are investigating new treatments and refining old ones. The ultimate goal is to completely cure these diseases. Dr. Mason is a hematologist and oncologist with a special interest in blood and bone marrow transplantation.

In addition to his experience with therapy programs for breast cancer and certain solid tumors, he performs blood and marrow stem cell transplantation for patients with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, nonHodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, acute and chronic leukemia, and other diseases of the blood and bone marrow. He recognized as a leader in the Bone Marrow Transplant field on the West Coast.

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 continue looking at an event that happened in a day of the life of Jesus. Mark 8:27-38 “Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He asked His disciples, saying to them, “Who do men say that I am?” So they answered, “John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.” Then He charged them that they should tell no one about Him. And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke this word openly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” Last week, we looked at the first of 3 distinct events recorded for us in these verses: Jesus establishing the fact of who and what He is to His disciples, “the Christ”. This week we will look at the second: Peter revealing his worldly and carnal thinking as he attempts to correct Jesus and Jesus correcting Peter and rebuking him. What Jesus had to tell Peter and the disciples of what MUST happen to Him did not set well with Peter; he had other ideas for Jesus. I find this true for most who profess to believe in Jesus, when Jesus works in their life in a way that is disagreeable, we whine, grumble, and complain and proceed to tell Jesus of how He “should do things” as if we know better than Him. I know you have probably never done this but I have, more times than I care to recount. Jesus identifies the root of the problem with Peter and all of us (if we are honest before God) our thinking is influenced by three things, the world; the flesh; and the devil. The world which is currently run by Satan (as we are told in the Word of God the Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”) and our flesh (our fallen sinful nature) which wants nothing to do with God and everything to do with what the world and Satan offer it. The Apostle Matthew account of Jesus’ response is a little more telling, Matthew 16:23 “But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” Peter, like many of us, had set his mind, thinking upon the things of the men/world rather than the things of God. Too many Christians today are so earthly minded that they are no Heavenly good. Proverbs 23:7 tells us that “As a man thinks, so he is.” How we think at any given moment influences how we act and respond. We are admonished in Colossians 3:1-3 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” Next week, we will look at the third and final event of this day in the life of Jesus.

Public Notice Para más detalles llame 1-888-512-2446 NOTICE OF PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION (A.15-08-027)

Project Name: SUNCREST DYNAMIC REACTIVE POWER SUPPORT PROJECT Filing Date: August 31, 2015 Proposed Project: NextEra Energy Transmission West, LLC (NEET West) has filed an application with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to construct the Suncrest Dynamic Reactive Power Support Project (Proposed Project) (A.15-08-027).

Project Description: In the 2013-2014 Transmission Planning Process (TPP), the California Independent System Operator Corporation (CAISO) identified a policy-driven need

for power support at San Diego Gas & Electric Company’s (SDG&E’s) Suncrest Substation. This support would help improve and maintain the electric transmission grid in the San Diego and Los Angeles metropolitan areas. To improve the electric transmission grid, NEET West will address the need to build a 230 kV +300/-100 Mvar dynamic reactive power support system connecting to the 230 kV bus at SDG&E’s Suncrest Substation. Due to the unexpected retirement of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, the CAISO has determined that the transmission grid would lack sufficient reactive power along the Sunrise Powerlink and Southwest Powerlink import paths by the summer of 2017. Additionally, the CAISO has determined that upgrades are needed to address the State of California’s 33 percent Renewables Portfolio Standard, by enabling the deliverability of significant amounts of renewable energy generating capacity available in the Imperial Valley area, which generation is assumed to be included in utilities’ renewable resource portfolios. In April of 2014, the CAISO solicited competitive bids to provide +300/-100 Mvar of reactive support at the SDG&E Suncrest Substation. The Proposed Project was selected by the CAISO through its competitive solicitation process, which is in accordance with the CAISO Tariff. The Proposed Project includes two primary components (please refer to the attached map below): Construction of a new +300/-100 Mvar Static Var Compensator (SVC) facility with a rated real power output of 0 MW, and a nominal terminal voltage of 230 kV, along with related equipment (SVC Facility). The SVC Facility will consist of the following major components: a thyristor-controlled reactor, thyristor-switched capacitors, and harmonic filters operating at medium voltage. The completed SVC Facility will comprise approximately 2.5 acres and will be located on a 6-acre parcel approximately 3.78 miles southwest of the community of Descanso and approximately 3.36 miles southeast of the community of Alpine, on privately-owned land within the administrative boundary of the United States Forest Service, Cleveland National Forest. Construction of an approximately 1-mile, 230 kV single-circuit, underground transmission line composed of cross-linked polyethylene-insulated, solid-dielectric, copper or aluminum conductor cables, which will connect the SVC Facility to SDG&E’s existing Suncrest Substation. The underground transmission line will be installed in conduits within a concrete encased duct bank that will be installed approximately 36 inches below grade, almost entirely within the existing, paved Bell Bluff Truck Trail road, except for one riser pole and one 300-foot overhead span into the SDG&E Suncrest Substation, along with a minimal amount of temporary work area to install the riser pole and up to five underground vault structures. The CAISO requires that the Proposed Project be in-service by June 1, 2017. Construction is targeted to start September 1, 2016, and commercial operation is expected to occur before May 31, 2017.

Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF) Compliance: The CPUC requires utilities to employ “no-cost” and “low-cost” measures to reduce public exposure to magnetic fields. The “EMF Design Guidelines” (Decisions 93-11-013 and 06-01-042) provide an exemption for projects located exclusively adjacent to undeveloped land. The Proposed Project is located on undeveloped private land within the administrative boundary of the United States Forest Service, Cleveland National Forest. This location would qualify the Proposed Project for the exemption. In addition to the qualifying exemption, NEET West evaluated measures to reduce the magnetic field strength levels from electric power facilities and adopted the following measures in the Proposed Project design: Locate high current devices, such as transformers, capacitors, and reactors near the center of the SVC Facility to the extent practicable. Locate the SVC Facility fencing so as to maximize the distance between the EMF generating equipment and the property fence to the extent practicable. Arrange the underground 230 kV transmission cables in a triangular configuration and install these cables at a minimum of 36 inches below grade where practicable.

Environmental Review: NEET West has prepared a Proponent’s Environmental Assessment (PEA) of potential environmental impacts created by the construction, operation and maintenance of the Proposed Project. The PEA concludes that with the implementation of Applicant-Proposed Measures (APMs), the potential significant environmental effects associated with the Proposed Project would be reduced to less-than-significant levels. Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the CPUC’s Energy Division will conduct an independent review of the Proposed Project’s environmental impacts. Depending on the results of its review, the Energy Division will issue a Negative Declaration that the Proposed Project will not result in any significant environmental impacts, a Mitigated Negative Declaration that the Proposed Project will not result in any significant environmental impacts because revisions to the Proposed Project have been made or mitigation measures will be implemented which will reduce all potentially significant impacts to less-than-significant levels, or an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) identifying the significant environmental impacts and mitigation measures and alternatives to avoid or reduce them.

Public Participation:

The public may participate in the environmental review by submitting comments on the Notice of Intent to Adopt a Negative Declaration, the Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration, or the Notice of Preparation of EIR and draft EIR, and by participating in any scoping meetings or public meetings that may be conducted. For information on the environmental review, contact the CPUC’s Energy Division at CEQAteam@cpuc.ca.gov. Persons wishing to present testimony in evidentiary hearings, if any, and/or legal briefing on all other issues, including project need and cost, EMF compliance, and, if one is prepared, whether the EIR complies with CEQA, require party status. Persons may obtain party status by filing a protest to the application by October 5, 2015, in compliance with Rule 2.6, or by making a motion for party status at any time in compliance with Rule 1.4, of the CPUC’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (posted at www.cpuc.ca.gov).

The public may communicate their views regarding the application by contacting the CPUC’s Public Advisor Office at the email and phone numbers listed below, or writing to CPUC Public Advisor Office, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102. In addition, the CPUC may, at its discretion, hold a public participation hearing in order to take oral public comment.

Document Subscription Service: The CPUC’s free online subscription service sends subscribers an email notification when any document meeting their subscription criteria is published on the CPUC’s website, such as documents filed in a CPUC proceeding (e.g., notices of hearings, rulings, briefs and decisions). To sign up to receive notification of documents filed in this proceeding (or other CPUC matters), visit www.cpuc.ca.gov/subscription. 8390 (toll-free), or (415) 703-2074, or TTY (415) 703-5258.

UP AGAINST ITBuska with S. Can I help you?

Can I help you?” She appeared from nowhere—tall, sturdily built, with a friendly face. I was telling my dad, in his wheelchair, I would come back for him after I took Paul, in his wheelchair, to the register to pay for our dinners. I always take them separately because I have a little trouble maneuvering two wheelchairs, and a to-go cup of iced tea between the tables and chairs. Pride—my unwelcome companion—and common sense, advise me to take another tack, thus the two trips. Feeling fully confident, I started to say I could manage, but thank you for offering. On second thought. . . How many times have I struggled to get Paul’s wheelchair through doors that needed someone to hold them open, while people at nearby tables, either totally unaware, or watching intently—as I struggled, bumping against the doorframe, backing up and starting over—to see if I would be able to get the chair through? So instead of refusing her offer, I thanked her and motioned to Paul’s wheelchair. If she would bring him, I could bring Dad. Wheelchairs in

hand, we set off, threading our way through the tables to the register. While we waited at the register, she explained she had a person in a wheelchair so she understood we could use some help. Paul, our social bee, immediately asked about her family and that’s how we learned that her youngest son has cerebral palsy, as does Paul. The questions began— Paul always wants to know everything. Ataxic or athetoid or spastic cerebral palsy? Does he have spasms? A lot? Based on

sprouting a halo and wings, was accepting another son to love and cherish. Many people compliment me on how I care for Paul; I tell them I’m only doing what any mother would do and besides, Paul’s a joy to be with; also, his disability isn’t all that severe. That evening at Denny’s I met someone who handles one-hundredfold the cares I have with Paul; I realized I am nothing compared to her. She went far beyond what was given to her—her biological son—and reached out to four boys to love and care for, accepting their difficulties as her own. To all of you out there, who are doing as she does: reaching out to love and care for God’s children and/or grown-ups in need of ’round the clock special attention, who are asking nothing in return, God bless.

“Paul, our social bee, immediately asked about her family and that’s how we learned that her youngest son has cerebral palsy, as does Paul. ” her answers to Paul’s questions, it turned out that her son has quite severe cerebral palsy. When she commented on Paul’s KISS T-shirt, he asked if her son was a KISS fan, too. She said her son can’t tolerate noise, so going out anywhere is difficult for him, much less to a rock concert. And then she told us she was adopting him. “How could you ‘send him back?’” she asked. With three other adopted sons and one biological son, this amazing lady, who looked quite normal but should have been

SDSU Offers HR Certificate Courses

he U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 15.5 percent employment growth in the human resources field from 2012 to 2022, which is faster than the average for all occupations. It equates to 35,400 new jobs for HR training specialists during that time, according to U.S. News & World Report. To prepare students for employment in this growing field, San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies offers a Professional Certificate in Human Resource Management. The first course in the program, Introduction to Human Resources, starts Sept. 21. The need for HR professionals is further illustrated by the fact that every company – no matter how small or large – must provide human resources functions. Many of those functions have been streamlined, creating a need for professionals who can hire, train, manage, retain, and develop the workforce. “Not one class goes by that I don’t come into our office and check a manual or policy to see if we can do it better,” said student Kelli Dole, executive assistant to the president & CEO at Awarepoint. Whether a student is new to HR or an accomplished professional, the HR certificate program through SDSU’s College of Extended Studies helps them advance their career
