EL CAJON — Beautiful expressions of Gloria Chadwick’s artistic passion are on display at the Heritage of the Americas Museum in El Cajon. Her desire to paint stemmed as a young girl living in rural San Diego, a time when this area of San Diego was undeveloped and marked by dusty roads. Chadwick, a resident of East County, is an artist who captures brilliance in her masterpieces by employing a style known as plein air (on location). California State Senator Joel Anderson provided Gloria Chadwick with a Senate certification of recognition and later remarked, “Gloria’s artwork is impressive and her dedication to preserving our community’s history is inspiring.” Chadwick said, “The fact that the Senator Anderson supports the arts, the community, and its historic culture is important and that we both share in the values of art.” Her genre of plein air painting includes imagery of and with animals, traditions, and places vanishing within her time. Venues and exhibitions displaying Chadwick’s creations have been displayed at many art competitions and art shows ranging from the Annual Plein Air Convention held in Monterrey to the Del Mar Fine Art exhibition in Del Mar. Chadwick’s work will also be on display at the Irving Wildlife Show in Irving, TX during September and the San Dimas Wildlife Show in San Dimas, CA during the month of October.

Manson Follower Again Tests Brown on Parole

HeraldwithGuest San DiegoCommentary County Board of Supervisors Statement From The County Board of Supervisors September 15, 2015 SAN DIEGO COUNTY — After careful consideration, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors has determined that it is in the best interest of taxpayers to settle claims filed by three former staff members against Supervisor Dave Roberts for a total sum of $310,000. In the opinion of the board, activities that occurred in the District III Supervisorial office, at a minimum, showed poor judgment by the Supervisor. And, although not conclusive, the investigative material surrounding the inappropriate use of County funds, promoting a hostile work environment, an alleged bribe, campaigning on County time, improper use of a County vehicle and retaliation against District III staff members is significant and a matter of concern for the Board of Supervisors. Inconsistent statements made by Supervisor Dave Roberts during the investigation, in closed session and in media interviews have made the investigation difficult and certainly challenges his credibility as a witness during a potential trial. Although Supervisor Dave Roberts admitted to mistakes in judgment at the onset of the allegations and implied his willingness to settle allegations with these former staff members without using County funds, he has since reversed his statements. He now states that he has done

nothing wrong. Emails, text messages and other documentation that have surfaced over the last several months appear to contradict his most recent position. The Board previously rejected severance payments to two of the three former staff members based on Supervisor Dave Roberts commitment to settle the matter without County funds. Subsequently, the three former staff members all filed claims against the County and were ultimately seeking a total of $1.075 million in compensation. If lawsuits were to be filed by the three former staff members and Supervisor Dave Roberts is named as a defendant, the County would be required to retain outside counsel for him at County expense. According to County Counsel, the litigation cost to defend Supervisor Dave Roberts through trial in the three cases, win or lose, could exceed $1 million. In addition, we believe it is unlikely we would prevail on all three claims. Former Chief of Staff Glynnis Vaughan appears to have identified numerous areas where county policy was not being followed in Supervisor Dave Roberts’ office. She acted in good faith to work with Supervisor Dave Roberts to correct identified problems and establish professional standards within the District 3 offices. Her actions were met with resistance from Supervi-

sor Dave Roberts resulting in a hostile relationship. Analysis of documented evidence indicates that former employee Diane Porter participated in activities in her role in Supervisor Dave Roberts’ office that violated County policy. Whether she did so knowingly or not is uncertain. However, she was doing so with the full knowledge of Supervisor Dave Roberts and arguably at his direction. Lindsey Masukawa had a positive two year working relationship with Supervisor Dave Roberts. She is a credible witness who made it clear to multiple County employees that she was resigning due to inappropriate pressure from the Supervisor to influence the investigation, but sent a positive resignation letter to him out of fear of retaliation and detriment to her professional career. The Board of Supervisors’ decision to settle the claims is not intended as statement that we believe all the claims by the three former staff members are true. But, we do believe there is substantial risk that a jury would find elements of several of the claims valid and would render an adverse verdict at trial. To minimize the significant financial exposure to County taxpayers, the Board considers it‘s in the best interest of taxpayers to settle the claims immediately. At the direction of the Board of Supervisors, more detailed information has been compiled and is available.

f this seems like déjà vu, that’s because it is. For the 29th time since he was convicted in two of the nine gruesome killings conducted by the cultlike Charles Manson “Family” in the late 1960s, 72-year-old Bruce Davis is up for parole. Gov. Jerry Brown has until the end of December to veto a late August finding by the state Parole Board finding Davis eligible for release from prison. He’s now held in the California Men’s Colony in San Luis Obispo. Brown has demonstrated in the past that he knows Davis and other followers of Manson – himself held in Corcoran State Prison – should never go free. When parole officials last found Davis suited for release, Brown wrote a six-page ruling reversing the decision. He made this salient point: “In rare circumstances, a murder is so heinous that it provides evidence of current dangerousness by itself. This is such a case.” Previously, Brown and other governors declined to release Davis because he refused to accept any responsibility for his role in the slice-and-dice murders of aspiring musician Gary Hinman and movie stuntman Donald “Shorty” Shea. Davis insisted for more than 40 years that he had little to do with those deaths, saying about Shea’s murder that he had inflicted only a “token” stab wound on Shea’s shoulder, while Manson himself made the fatal stabs and cuts. Finally, in 2013, Davis admitted he sliced Shea from armpit to collarbone. Shea’s carved-up body was later found in small pieces spread around the former Spahn Movie Ranch in the Santa Susana Pass area between Los Angeles and Simi Valley, where cowboy stars like Gene Autry and Roy Rogers once roamed. Many episodes of TV shows like Bonanza and The Lone Ranger were at least partially filmed there. But by 1969, when the Manson group moved onto the ranch, owner George Spahn had become elderly, frail and unable to resist the cult’s takeover of his land. In Hinman’s slaying, trial testimony by a former Manson follower revealed, Davis held a gun on Hinman while Manson slashed his face with a sword and tried to extort money from him. Hinman’s dead body was later found in Davis’s home, with the word’s “political piggy” scrawled in blood on a wall. There is no evidence, however, that Davis was involved in the better-known Manson Family murders at the Beverly Hills-adjacent residence of movie star Sharon Tate and the Los Angeles home of grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary. Other race-tinged messages were written in blood within the LaBianca house. It can be difficult for those not involved in investigating or covering the Manson Family crimes to appreciate the depth of their depravity and cruelty. The upshot was that not only were the victims killed, but the murders were done in the most painful and vicious manner conceivable, each concocted to serve some purpose linked to Manson’s vain hope of spurring a race war to which he applied the name “Helter Skelter.” While it’s true that in more than 40 years as a prisoner, Davis has married, fathered a child and earned a doctoral degree in religion, the question of why he ever should be freed remains unanswered given the lives he helped end abruptly in some of the bloodiest possible ways. While the many millions of Californians either not resident here or not even born at the time of those murders may not remember their impact, Brown certainly does. Back then, he lived in Laurel Canyon north of the Sunset Strip and not far from Tate’s rented house in Benedict Canyon. He may even have felt the fears experienced by other canyon dwellers aware that the Manson killers cut power and telephone lines in an era long before cell phones. Their impending victims could not call for help or even see much as their executioners approached in the dark. Brown’s statement when Davis last came up for parole demonstrates he knows the depth of these crimes. The hope is that this former Roman Catholic seminarian has not lost the understanding that some crimes are simply too horrible ever to be forgiven, no matter how goody-two-shoes their perpetrators may appear to have become years later.

Skin Tags and Liver Spots, Oh My

Q

. My skin has all kinds of small thingies on it like

A

my father used to have. My doctor checks them out and says they are all harmless. But, what exactly are they?

.

As we age, most of us start sprouting an array of unwanted growths. Let’s go over the common ones: LIVER SPOTS: The official name for liver or age spots is “lentigines” from the Latin for “lentil.” These are flat, brown with rounded edges and are larger than freckles. They are not dangerous. KERATOSES—Seborrheic keratoses are brown or black raised spots, or wart-like growths that appear to be stuck to the skin. They are harmless. Actinic keratoses are thick, warty, rough, reddish growths. They may be a precursor to skin cancer. CHERRY ANGIOMAS—These are small, bright-red raised bumps created by dilated blood vessels. They occur in more than 85 percent of seniors, usually on the trunk. These are also not dangerous. TELANGIECTASIA—These are dilated facial blood vessels. SKIN TAGS—These are bits of skin that project outward. They may be smooth or irregular, flesh colored or more deeply pigmented. They can either be raised above the surrounding skin or have a stalk so that the tag hangs from the skin. They are benign.

Full Service Salon Now we get into the cancers of the skin:

SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS—These are in the outer layers of the skin. They are closely associated with aging. These are capable of spreading to other organs. They are small, firm, reddened nodules or flat growths. They may also be coneshaped. Their surfaces may be scaly or crusted. BASAL CELL CARCINOMAS—These are the most common of the skin cancers. They develop in the basal layer below the surface of the skin. Basal cell carcinomas seldom spread to other parts of the body. They usually appear as small, shiny bumps or pinpoint, red bleeding areas on the head, face, nose, neck or chest. MELANOMAS—The melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. Melanomas can spread to other organs and can be fatal. They usually appear as dark brown or black mole-like growths with irregular borders and variable colors. They usually arise in a pre-existing mole or other pigmented lesion. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. About half of all Americans who live to 65 will have skin cancer. Although anyone can get skin cancer, the risk is greatest for people who have fair skin. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. All skin cancers can be cured if they are treated before they spread. The most common warning sign of skin cancer is a change on the skin, especially a new growth or a sore that doesn’t heal. Check your skin often. Look for changes in the size, shape, color, or feel of birthmarks, moles, and spots. And don’t be reluctant to go to a doctor whenever you see anything on your skin that you suspect might be a problem. Dermatologists recommend that, if you are a fair-skinned senior, you should get a full-body skin exam once a year. This kind of check-up isn’t a bad idea for any senior.

Living with MS with Dee Dean Study Shows Melatonin Levels Positively Correlate With Fewer MS Flare-Ups

M

elatonin, the same hor mone that helps p e o p l e fall asleep by regulating the body’s internal clock, may be helpful in treating Multiple Sclerosis (MS), according to a study from Raúl Carrea Institute for Neurological Research in Buenos Aires. Neurologists Dr. Mauricio Farez and Dr. Francisco Quintana noticed that when melatonin levels are highest during the year (fall and winter), MS patients experience fewer flare-ups. In summer, when levels are lower, patients are highly affected by flare-ups. “Our research explains something that wasn’t known before in terms of how Multiple Sclerosis is modulated by the environment,” said Dr. Quintana in a news release. Dr. Farez and Dr. Quintana’s research team conducted a study that looked at seasonal effects of melatonin on Multiple Sclerosis by following 139 patients over the course of a year. In the winter, relapses were found to be reduced by 32 percent. To make a link between MS and melatonin, researchers tracked the levels of 6-SM, a component of mela-

tonin. Levels of 6-SM dipped when flare-ups became more frequent. The study, “Melatonin Contributes to the Seasonality of Multiple Sclerosis Relapses,” was published in the journal Cell. Investigating further, the research team applied melatonin to an experimental mice model of MS and looked at the response of T-cells, which are important mediators of flare-ups in multiple sclerosis. Upon melatonin treatment, the number of protective T-cells in the mice increased significantly, and harmful cell populations decreased. The exact mechanism of how melatonin acts on T-cells to protect further damage in MS has yet to be clarified. Scientists are still researching how protective T-cells shield myelin from further destruction by the immune system. Neurologist Dr. Lawrence Steinman at Stanford University cautions that research efforts in addition to those that focus on T-cells are necessary to continue understanding MS. “This group is enthusiastic about the role of [rogue T-cells], and so am I, but it’s only part of the story,” he said. Additionally, the research conducted by Dr. Farez and Dr. Quintana focused on only a subset of multiple sclerosis patients– those living in Buenos Aires, where the amount of seasonal daylight is different from other

parts of the world. The team further cautions that MS patients should not attempt to self-treat by using over-the-counter sleep aids (which contain melatonin) to reduce flare-ups. “We don’t want patients to see the study and misinterpret our results,” said Dr. Farez. “It’s a neat study and great data, but we still need to do a lot of work.” Doses, side effects, and overall treatment safety and efficacy need to be explored further before melatonin is recommended in Multiple Sclerosis therapy regimens.

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.

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART XXIV

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 the third of three events that happened one day in 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.” The final event recorded for us in our text is “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.” The first thing we need to notice is to whom Jesus made this statement, it was to the disciples and the people. Many professing Christians today take statements like this and say that Jesus was only talking to the disciples; that He would never require such radical commitment from His followers today. This is presumptuous; wrong; unscriptural; implying that Jesus and His Word have changed over the years. Jesus has not changed nor has His Word and neither ever will. The demands that Jesus made upon His followers 2,000 years ago are the same today. The worldly, fleshly, carnal “Christian” finds this absurd and unacceptable. The Jesus that they have contrived in their own heart and mind would never impose such requirements on any of His followers let alone make “demands” upon them. “Their Jesus” exists only to bless, comfort, and make them happy. The problem with this Jesus is that he does not exist; he exists only in the imagination of their own heart. This is idolatry, it is the breaking of the breaking of the first and second Commandments which states, Exodus 20:3-5 “You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.” The Word of God discloses the True Jesus to us and reveals any and all fallacies we may have conjured up in our own thinking.

The Mission Continues

Friday, September 11 • The Water Conservation Garden before...

EL CAJON — The Water Conservation Garden proudly hosted more than a dozen military veterans from The Mission Continues as part of a national veterans service day on September 11. The volunteers planted trees in one of The Garden’s newest exhibits, the Native Habitat Garden. “There are 54 Mission Continues chapters across the U.S., and the goal is to look for nonprofit organizations who can benefit from our help while helping veterans reconnect with their community,” said The Mission Continues San Diego 1st Service Platoon Leader Roxana Mejia. “The San Diego Platoon is focused on Urban Agriculture & Green Spaces, and this year selected The Water Conservation Garden as a beneficiary of the work.” The Mission Continues is a nationwide organization that helps veterans transition from active duty to civilian life, encouraging them serve their community in new ways. They conduct numerous service projects throughout the year on that focus in pertinent areas such as homelessness, environmental stewardship and at risk youth. “We are thrilled to have the help of such distinguished volunteers at The Garden, particularly on September 11,” said Water Conservation Garden Executive Director John Bolthouse. “The Garden’s exhibits are sustained by volunteers, and we can think of no better way to honor the memory of September 11 than planting and enriching our community.”

UP AGAINST ITBuska with S. Getting it together

B

eware the flat boxes that come by UPS or FedEx and land on your front porch. They’re filled with flat pieces of furniture for you to put together. These days the only things that come fully assembled are ink cartridges and candy. Five boxes took over our porch last week, courtesy of UPS. Two were for the patio chairs in the four-piece set I’d ordered; one was for the coffee table, one for the settee, and another for. . .what? The two for the chairs weren’t flat. I looked hopefully at the large square boxes. Was it possible the chairs were assembled? Not quite tall enough—I stopped hoping. The last box had me stumped. It wasn’t labeled. What was in it? Oh, no. I’ll bet it’s the hardware. I hope not. That would be an awful lot of hardware. The online reviews said this set is easy to assemble, that it takes two guys two hours to put it together. My daughter Christy and I couldn’t wait to get started. Hah! Not likely. We put it off until the weekend and on Saturday morning we opened one of the big square boxes, hoping it would hold something resembling a put-together chair.

It didn’t. Two fat cushions occupied the top half of the box. We tossed them out and stripped back the bubble wrap from four large wicker pieces layered one on top of the other. The hardware was sealed in plastic, with a red flag attached. A message? It didn’t look too bad, though: nuts, bolts, washers—and the perennial allen wrench. Two days later I heard that sales of allen wrenches increased 11% last year. My sore fingers were shocked— only 11%? UPS and FedEx trucks jam-packed with unas-

exactly what I was talking about. He said they’d send a replacement part with all its holes open. I hung up and Christy and I went out for a drink. Well, we would have if we weren’t so busy unbolting the parts we’d put together so we’d be ready to attach the first two pieces to the replacement piece. The unlabeled box? It was the cushion covers. No nuts, bolts, or wrenches. . . I put the covers on the cushions. I didn’t see the instructions until later, but there they were, on page six of the manual, parts numbers and all. Did you know cushions have parts number? When the set is all put together, Christy and I are going to put ourselves back together. You’ll be happy to know we’re skipping the allen wrenches and the instructions. But we might have a few nuts— with our beers.

“The online reviews said this set

is easy to assemble, that it takes two

guys two hours to put it together. “ sembled furniture and allen wrenches are all over the nation. My sore fingers? That was from tightening 18 bolts on the coffee table the night before. Christy and I got the first two pieces of the chair loosely connected and the third piece was going fine until we got to the last bolt. It wouldn’t go through its hole. No wonder, the hole was three-quarters covered with a thick strand of wicker. I pushed and shoved. Didn’t do any good. Monday morning I called the 800 number. The rep knew
