Herald Guest Commentary with Eric Visconti The El Monte Sand Mine A Drought Crisis Catastrophe

LAKESIDE — San Diego County is about to receive the most ambitious hydraulic sand mining projects in it’s history while in the middle of the worst draught crisis in decades. Though residents understand that such a project must first receive county approval after an environmental impact study is done, many do not know that Enviormine, Inc is already moving forward. I was reported late last month that the El Monte Nature Preserve, LLC (aka Enviormine, Inc) has contracted West Coast Sand and Gravel to extract and market the water-mined sand from El Monte Valley. Ron Blair, a managing partner of El Monte Nature Preserve stated the environmental benefit that extracting sand locally will create is reducing about 14,000,000 pounds of CO2 each year from the trucks currently importing sand into San Diego County. Blair however, did not address the local CO2 emissions that will be created by the 230 trucks stated to be coming in and out of the mine each day. As there is no reason to believe sand sales will be limited to San Diego county, there is no reason to assume that the El Monte Sand Mine trucks will be driving less miles. This means that the CO2 output from trucks involved in local mining, driving deliveries out of the county, plus the local mining machinery, will leave the same or an even greater CO2 footprint in the air directly over local communities. Though mining operations and preparation for those activities are not supposed to begin prior to approval, it is not uncommon for activities to begin beforehand. This has been the case with the previous owners of the land as stated in the June public meeting and potentially in later venues.

Representatives of El Monte Nature Preserve cited that the previous owners attempted to mine sand there were stopped, and the owners left the area without restoration from their activities. While local residents hold public meetings to voice opinions concerning the sand mine proposal, there is no guarantee that land preparations will not begin before hand. Whereas The El Monte Nature Preserve, LLC ( aka Enviormine, Inc ) has stated an environmental approach to this project, they have posted before and after images of their intended improvement of the site after the 30 year mining project is complete. (http://www. After completely transforming a 565 acre site into a lifeless mining landscape, the company’s plans to restore 75 acres of it leave many residents astonished. As there is no financial guarantee this will even happen in 30 years, residents fear the site will simply be abandoned as with other recently publicized examples. The greatest unaddressed fear about this proposed mine involves water. • Where Enviormine, Inc (aka El Monte Nature Preserve, LLC) plans to get the 168 acre feet of water per year they state is needed for the hydraulic mining (54,742,968 gallons) from an area gripped by a severe drought crisis has not been addressed. • With 4,109 tons of sand production daily X 5,000 gallons per ton = 20,545,000 additional gallons of water per DAY to clean the silt from sand produced. http:// water_use_mining.pdf • Dust control requires enormous additional water use, or the addition of chemicals. Accord-

ing to a study at, using an acre foot of water to pre treat an acre of land prior to excavation REDUCES water use for dust control. (Please note an acre foot of water is 325,851 gallons and the mine site is 565 acres.) • Polluted run off water from the operation must go somewhere, and eventually will go into the San Diego River.. If the combined volume of the above flows through the San Diego River to the Pacific laden with silt and mining chemicals, the affects will be catastrophic. While residents are meeting in churches to voice opinions about this project, nothing is being said about how the area itself will survive the enormous drain on draught strained water supplies, how such a volume of water pollution will affect the areas from the river to the Pacific Ocean, and what will happen with an expected drop in the water table of at least 50 feet. Sinkholes can be caused by smaller variances, and can easily be just one of the consequences suffered. Citizens who are concerned about this project which appears to be moving forward should take direct action by communicating with the County Board of Supervisors at The future of El Monte Valley is not the only thing in question as all of San Diego County can easily feel the impact of such a large and drastic operation.

arallels between current presidential candidate Donald Trump and ex-California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger are myriad and obvious to anyone who cares to look. Both are celebrities with no need to spend money on getting-to-know-you TV commercials like ordinary candidates for high office. Both went after political offices after pursuing lucrative careers not even slightly related to running a government. Each claimed not to need special interest money, since both are rolling in dough. Neither has shown the slightest worry about the rumors or reality of his womanizing past and (maybe) present. Voters male and female have never shown signs of worry about their personal indiscretions. Trump’s flashy campaign style, featuring his blue-painted personal jumbo jet and occasional rides for kids in his personal helicopter apes Schwarzenegger’s practice of constantly surrounding himself with klieg lights and aides attired in expensive leather jackets festooned with Arnold-related logos. Because he campaigned only in California, Schwarzenegger never needed a jumbo like Trump’s Boeing 757, but could make do with a mere private jet he kept at the Santa Monica Airport, not far from his home in Brentwood’s Mandeville Canyon. The similarities go on and on, the largest of them being that their support levels are never diminished by their errors, ignorance or sins. It’s almost as if both were Kardashians, members of a dynasty founded by a lawyer pal of accused and acquitted wifekiller O.J. Simpson, Robert Kardashian, who was long suspected of destroying or hiding key evidence sought by police. That background has never held back any member of his clan. Nor has the way Arnold and The Donald ignore the old caution to “be sure brain is engaged before putting mouth into gear.” Several months into the campaign for next year’s Republican presidential nomination, Trump continues to lead the GOP field, where the No. 2 spot in the polls fluctuates unpredictably. As with Schwarzenegger, and decades earlier with actor Ronald Reagan, Democrats don’t yet see Trump as a serious threat. He puts foot in mouth at least once a week, rarely apologizing and never backing off what would be serious gaffes for any non-celebrity. Consistency also doesn’t matter, as Trump has changed positions on everything from abortion to immigration. When he entered politics, the muscleman actor Schwarzenegger didn’t have prior positions he could contradict. But he frequently broke promises, including the first one he made as a recall election candidate in 2003. Starting his run on NBC-TV’s Tonight Show, Schwarzenegger vowed never to accept “special interest” money. Then he immediately began accepting campaign contributions from oil companies, car dealers and almost any interest willing to write a check. He also promised to order an independent investigation into allegations he groped and otherwise sexually harassed women. It never happened. There were many others. Once he became governor, it quickly became clear Schwarzenegger had little notion of how to run America’s largest state government. He began by threatening public employee unions, who famously whipped him in every ballot initiative contest they fought. He gave orders to the state attorney general, only to be reminded that independently-elected official did not work for him. He appointed a former utility company president to regulate that company as president of the California Public Utilities Commission. Would Trump, who has bragged about taking advantage of federal bankruptcy laws because “everyone else in my position does,” display similar desires to be a kind of strongman? There’s little doubt he would bring at least as much bombast to the office. Democrats who now belittle Trump’s White House chances because he doesn’t pepper his speeches with many facts or pay much heed to what he could do by himself if elected should remember Reagan, who as a campaigner also did not bother much with facts. When faced with tough questions in the early months of his winning 1980 campaign, he often turned toward the wings offstage, saying “I’ll let Ed (Meese) answer that one,” referring to a top aide he later appointed U.S. attorney general. When an opponent rattled off facts and pointed out his contradictions during debates, he grinned wryly into the camera and said, “There he goes again.” And he always won easily. So might Trump if Democrats keep taking him lightly. That’s the lesson for them from Reagan and Schwarzenegger, the only other big-time celebrities to seek the highest office they possibly could.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

. I understand that getting a hernia fixed today is a lot easier than it used to be. Is that true?

. You get a hernia when a section of an internal organ bulges

through weak abdominal muscle tissue. The protruding organ is usually the intestines. About 80 percent of hernias are located in the groin. The overwhelming majority of groin-hernia victims are men. About 5 million Americans develop hernias annually, but only 700,000 get them fixed surgically. The common theory for this phenomenon among doctors is that most people fear having an operation. But hernia surgery today is not the ordeal it once was with a large incision and long recovery. Today, patients requiring hernia surgery are in an out of the hospital the same day. The surgery takes about an hour. Most patients resume their normal lives within a few days after the surgery. The operation can be done with a small incision or by minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery that employs a slender, tubular, optical instrument with a surgical tool. . Do men have different brains than women? . Here are some fascinating facts: • Dr. Gabrielle M. de Courten-Myers, a University of Cincinnati scientist, has determined men have about 2 billion more brain cells than women but the extra cells don’t make them smarter than women • Louann Brizendine, a San Francisco neuropsychiatrist and author of The Female Brain, asserts that the difference between male and female brains explains why women like to discuss their feelings, while men love to dwell upon sex. “Women have an eight-lane superhighway for processing emotion, while men have a small country road,” Brizendine says. “Men, however, have O’Hare Airport as a hub for processing thoughts about sex, where women have the airfield nearby that lands small and private planes.” • A brain-scanning study suggests that when males watch a mild electric shock given to a cheater, they don’t feel his pain. Instead they enjoy it. Women’s brains empathize with the cheater’s pain and they get no pleasure from it. • Men tend to perform better than women at certain spatial tasks, target-directed motor skills, mathematical reasoning, and navigating. (Is that why they don’t ask for directions?). Women tend to excel at word tests, identifying matching items and precision manual tasks. • Men and women with equal IQ’s achieve the same scores with different areas of the brain, Richard J. Haier, PhD reported in NeuroImage. He also found that women have more white matter and fewer gray matter areas related to IQ than men do. . What is hip resurfacing? . It is a surgical alternative to total hip replacement. The hip is a ball-and-socket joint. The ball is at the top of the femur (thigh bone), and the socket is in the pelvis. In hip replacement surgery, the ball is replaced with a metal or ceramic substitute. The socket is fitted with a metal cup to hold the new ball. The primary difference in hip resurfacing is that the surgeon doesn’t remove the femural ball. Instead, the damaged ball is reshaped, and then a metal cap is anchored over it. A crucial issue in joint replacement is longevity. A substitute hip is good for about 20 years, and it is difficult to remove and replace one that’s shot. Hip resurfacing, unlike hip replacement, preserves enough bone to permit a total replacement if it is necessary later. Surgeons estimate that 10 to 15 percent of people with bad hips can consider hip resurfacing instead of replacement. For example, resurfacing is not recommended for patients with osteoporosis, a disease that makes bones porous and vulnerable to fractures. Ask The Healthy Geezer a question at:

Study Shows Smoking After Diagnosis Linked To Disease Progression In MS


ew findings published in JAMA N e u rology reveal that continued smoking following the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) could accelerate the progression of the disease. The neurodegenerative illness begins with an initial course of irregular and worsening relapses that typically change and progress into secondary progressive (SP) disease throughout a 20-yearperiod. In this recent study, researchers examined patients in Sweden with MS who smoked at the time of their diagnosis. From then on, 216 converted to SP. Among the 728 smokers, 332 were classified as “continuers” who smoked continuously from the year after their diagnosis and 118 were “quitters” who stopped smoking the year after their diagnosis. Data on 1,012 never smokers also were included, with close to 60 percent of MS patients in the present study cohort and in a Swedish cohort of new cases. After conducting an analysis, the researchers found

that each additional year of smoking after diagnosis accelerated the time of SP conversion by about 4.7 percent. Another analysis suggested that patients who continued to smoke each year after diagnosis converted to SP faster at around age 48 than those who quit at close to age 56. Furthermore, the authors noted that it is impossible to rule out other confounding factors. “This study demonstrates that smoking after MS diagnosis has a negative impact on the progression of the disease, whereas reduced smoking may improve patient quality of life, with more years before the development of SP disease. Accordingly, evidence clearly supports advising patients with MS who smoke to quit. Health care services for patients with MS should be organized to support such a lifestyle change,” the study concluded, courtesy of a news release. In a related commentary, Myla D. Goldman, M.D., of the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, and Olaf Stüve, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, wrote the following: “In summary, this

study adds to the important research demonstrating that smoking is an important modifiable risk factor in MS. Most importantly, it provides the first evidence, to our knowledge, that quitting smoking appears to delay onset of secondary progressive MS and provide protective benefit. Therefore, even after MS diagnosis, smoking is a risk factor worth modifying.” Source: JAMA Neurology, press release

Riding Society Receives Senatorial Recognition

Photo Courtesy VRLRS for The East County Herald

By Julie Tran

For The East County Herald EAST COUNTY — There are numerous ways to partake in community service; one of the more creative ways is to reenact the Victorian Era! The Victorian Roses Ladies Riding Society (VRLRS) is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 by Leanna Chessmore, Dyan Paquette, and Deana Sommerville. With 27 active and incoming members, VRLRS is a well-respected organization dedicated to educating, horseback riding, and hosting events to raise money for San Diego County horse rescue centers. The unique organization is well-known throughout Southern California for its unwavering passion in portraying the classic

romance of the 1880s through designing and displaying original re-creations of Victorian Era dresses while horseback riding. VRLRS was recently recognized by California State Senator Joel Anderson for its participation in the 45th Annual Pine Valley Days Parade. Certificates of Recognition were presented to acknowledge the unforgettable performance that demonstrated the organization’s relentless commitment to its community. Anderson expressed, “The Riding Society’s unique way of giving back to the community makes a lasting impact on the public and inspires others to find creative ways to give back as well.” Deana Somerville, VRLRS Co- Founder and Co-President, claims that the economic down-

turn has made owning a horse a luxury. This causes many to be unable to properly care for their horses and, in turn, feel compelled to abandon them. VRLRS’s love for horses drives the organization to support horse-rescuing charities. Somerville divulges, “The Victorian Roses Ladies Riding Society feels a great sense of pride, knowing that [its] contributions are so important and needed.” On Saturday, Sept. 19, the organization hosted its annual Wild West Casino Night fundraiser to raise money for six different horse rescue facilities with help from dedicated supporters, sponsors, and charities.

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART XXV

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 first of two extraordinary events that occurred one day in the life of Jesus. Mark 9:2-13 “Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His clothes became shining, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them. And Elijah appeared to them with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”-- because he did not know what to say, for they were greatly afraid. And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” Suddenly, when they had looked around, they saw no one anymore, but only Jesus with themselves. Now as they came down from the mountain, He commanded them that they should tell no one the things they had seen, till the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So they kept this word to themselves, questioning what the rising from the dead meant. And they asked Him, saying, “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” Then He answered and told them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and restores all things. And how is it written concerning the Son of Man, that He must suffer many things and be treated with contempt? But I say to you that Elijah has also come, and they did to him whatever they wished, as it is written of him.” There are a number of significant events that happened in this account and we have time only to look at a few. First is what happened to Jesus on the mountain when He took Peter, James, and John with Him, He was ‘transfigured’. The Greek word that is translated into English is ‘metamorpho’ which is where we get the English word metamorphism. We use this word to describe the radical transformation that takes place when a caterpillar turns into a butterfly and a tadpole turns into a frog. Six days prior to this event Jesus had told His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of God present with power.” Jesus being transfigured into His glorious body on the mountain with His 3 disciples was a fulfillment of this. When the Apostle John was on the island of Patmos which is where he received and wrote the Book of Revelation, he saw Jesus standing before him in His glorified body, Revelation 1:9-17 “I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,”… Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;… And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.” The second recorded event I want to draw your attention to is the testimony of the Father of His Son, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” Whenever God (whether it be by way of the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit) uses the word ‘Hear’ there is the implied understanding that the hearer is to obey what they hear. When God speaks man is to obey.

If you’re not young and you’re not old -

ave you seen that commercial where the guy asks how long it takes to grow old? I always wonder what he means, “grow old?” When do you grow old? I know. I know. “Old” is geriatric, can’t run around like a marathon runner; can’t figure out where the wrinkles came from. But when do we “grow old”? That’s what I want to know. I trotted off to my Internet browser and punched in “old.” Merriam Webster got my attention, so I opened its page and discovered that old is “not young,” so I clicked on “young” to see what “old” isn’t. Well, look at this! “Young” is “not yet old.” Hmm. If young is not old and old is not young, what’s in-between? No one goes straight from young to old. Not willingly, anyway. When are you not still young? When are you old? To a toddler, anyone in their teens is old. To a teenager, anyone over 30 is old. To a 30 year-old, 60 is old and to a 60 year-old, well you don’t want to think about it anymore. Webster also defines young as “in an early stage of life, growth, or development.” Seems we pass that phase

pretty quickly—out of diapers, into grade school, out of high school, and then. . . old??? A second definition for old is “having lived for many years.” If eighteen years qualifies as “many,” anyone finishing high school would be old. Middle-aged. You notice I haven’t brought that up. Mostly because it brings to mind middle-age spread, which is not mayonnaise or mustard. You don’t hear many people bragging about how middle-aged they are. There’s not much to brag about, unless you’ve just had a sensational midlife

you can call yourself a tweener. Wait! That’s for kids who are almost, but not quite, teens, isn’t it? It is even a word? Tweener actually is a word. If you’re a Scrabbler, use it in your next Scrabble game. A guy at Webster’s website said he got 158 points for using it. Urban Dictionary defines tweener as “a person or thing considered to be between two other recognized categories or types,” so if you’re.between young and old, you’re a tweener. Wait—there’s a bunch more definitions for tweener. Someone might get the wrong idea. . . This is getting silly. Let’s stick with NYNO, pronounced “neeno” and change the goalposts: if you’re over 30 and under 110, just tell people you’re a NYNO. I’m sure they’ll know exactly what you mean.

“You don’t hear many people bragging about how middle-aged they are. There’s not much to brag about, unless you’ve just had a sensational midlife crisis.” crisis. Then you’d better tell us about it or we’ll die of curiosity before we stop being young. Middle-aged is defined as between 40 and 60 by most, so if 60 is the new 40 and you just turned 60, you haven’t gained much. You’re still middle-aged. How about NYNO, pronounced neeno? An acronym for the in-between time, since acronyms are all the rage. Not Young Not Old. Sounds kind’a sexy. Young, old, or NYNO, Take your pick. It’s all relative. Or

During this exchange, she was inspired to pursue an International Fulbright Science & Technology Award. The grant provides for doctoral study in STEM fields at a United States institution. While speaking with Professor Christopher Harrison, a member of the SDSU chemistry faculty, Kokiashvili decided to apply for the grant to be able to collaborate on a project. The $30 million SDSU-Georgia project is part of $140 million that the United States government is providing in aid to Georgia through Georgia’s compact with the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). The compact is implemented by the Millennium Challenge AccountGeorgia (MCA-Georgia) in the fields of general, vocational, and higher education. The compact is the largest investment in Georgia’s education sector to date, and aims to develop Georgia’s human capital capacity for economic growth and reduce the country’s poverty rate. The MCC is an innovative and independent U.S. foreign aid agency that is helping lead the fight against global poverty. Georgia’s first compact with the MCC, completed in 2011, rehabilitated a major highway, improved energy and water security, and supported agribusinesses.
