Susan G. Komen Designates Two Sycuan Casino Employee’s Their Honorary Survivors EL CAJON — Susan G. Komen San Diego’s Race for the Cure always holds a special place in the hearts of Rochelle Bradley and Fran Robinson, both long-term Sycuan Casino employees. Both lived through the nightmare of battling breast cancer, Robinson is still fighting the disease. But what makes the event so special to them this year is that they were designated Susan G. Komen San Diego’s Race for the Cure Honorary Survivors. Both Bradley and Robinson have participated in the Race as a part of Team Sycuan in the past. The two were introduced to the charity’s San Diego team at a commercial shoot for the casino that included a reenactment of Race for the Cure, showing the casino’s huge involvement and support of their cause. “Sycuan Casino is incredibly proud, honored and inspired to partner with Susan G. Komen throughout the year and especially as we align to support Breast Cancer Awareness month,” said Lauren Morrow, community development manager at Sycuan Casino. “This year Team Sycuan will once again be hundreds strong as we walk with an even greater purpose to find a cure. Fran and Rochelle, we are behind you.” The casino is largely involved with the organization and has had the largest team in the organization’s event history for the past several years. Bradley and Robinson will both be participating in this year’s race again, which will be held on Sunday, Nov. 1 at 8 a.m. at Balboa Park. In addition to its participation in the race, the casino has also done its part to pay homage to Breast Cancer awareness month and Fran and Rochelle. Sycuan installed a giant pink ribbon on its billboard located on 67 and Maple View Street in Lakeside. Additionally, all of its front line team members are donning pink Breast Cancer awareness shirts during the month of October. Sycuan Casino began as a humble Bingo Palace back in 1983. Now, 30 years later it has become a community landmark.

Herald Guest Commentary with Merrill Matthews Reduce the Trade Deficit by Ending the Crude Oil Export Ban


h a t appears to be a global economic slowdown, led by China’s stumbling economy, will almost certainly impact one particular area of the U.S. economy: the balance of trade deficit. U.S. companies sell goods and services to other countries, and those countries sell their goods and services to us. The U.S. always buys more than it sells -- mainly because we have more money to spend -- which leads to a monthly trade deficit. But when the U.S. economy goes into a tailspin, we buy fewer foreign goods and services, and so the trade deficit decreases. When the U.S. economy is strong, the trade deficit usually increases. Some economists and politicians worry when the trade deficit grows and look for ways to lower it. There’s one sure way to dramatically lower the balance of trade deficit: remove the ban on U.S. crude oil exports. In 1975, when gas lines were long and voters’ tempers were high, Congress prohibited U.S. crude oil exports. The country was on a gradual crude oil pro-

duction decline, and Congress wanted the country to keep every drop it produced. Of course, cars run on gasoline and not crude oil, but there is no ban on refined gasoline products. So, Congress banned the export of a product drivers can’t use but not a product they can. But that was 40 years ago, and innovative drilling techniques have flipped the gas shortage around. The U.S. Energy Information Administration now ranks the U.S. as the largest producer of crude oil in the world. Allowing crude oil exports would increase oil supplies, stabilize oil prices, and reduce the trade deficit. Critics claim we shouldn’t end the ban because the U.S. still consumes more oil than it produces. But they’re missing two points. First, the U.S. could become a net oil producer within five years. But establishing the infrastructure and entering into contracts takes time, and no oil producing company is going to move forward without knowing for sure that Washington will allow exports. Second is economic efficiency. Oil has to be refined to be used, and getting crude oil

to a refinery that can handle it means transportation and sometimes storage costs. It makes more economic sense for a company to sell its crude oil to another country than pay additional costs transporting and refining it in the U.S. The White House opposes ending the ban, and has suggested that the Commerce Department, not Congress, should decide whether to lift it. But they’re just stalling, similar to the Keystone XL pipeline. In that case, the White House asked the State Department to assess the environmental impact of approving the Keystone, knowing the assessment would take years. But State Department experts concluded that approving the Keystone would have little environmental impact. Even so the White House has refused to approve the pipeline. Economists disagree on the importance of reducing the trade deficit, but there should be agreement that allowing oil exports would be the best way to do it. Congress should end the export ban even if the White House disapproves. Don’t let crude oil exports get sidelined by the same tactic that hindered Keystone approval.

s the state moves toward taxing marijuana growers for the first time, those same growers also are starting to face restrictions on water use, just like farmers of more conventional crops. One reason is that the water consumption of pot farms has caused serious depredations of salmon and trout runs in several Northern California streams, most notably the Eel River and its tributary streams in the so-called “Emerald Triangle” of Mendocino, Humboldt and Trinity counties. Marijuana has long been the largest cash crop in that region. It’s not that a single cannabis plant is much more thirsty than other crops. One plant, according to many reports, can take anywhere from six to 15 gallons per day, about as much as a corn plant and not nearly as much as it takes to produce, say, a single one-pound beefsteak or the denim needed to make a pair of jeans. But when the estimated 30,000 pot growers in the area – most claiming to grow only medicinal marijuana – are done watering on any typical day, they have often used more than 720,000 gallons of water. One question might be, “And for what?” The detrimental mental and motivational effects of regular pot smoking are at least as well-known and well-researched as the medical and palliative benefits on the positive side of the weed. But while virtually all other water users in California have suffered drought-related cutbacks over the last year, the oftenclandestine nature of pot farming has left it without similar restrictions. This may be about to end. For the first time, a system of regulating medical marijuana growers statewide was signed into law this fall. That came after Republican George Runner, an ultraconservative former state senator now serving on the state’s taxadministration Board of Equalization, opined that California should levy an excise tax on medipot, and use the money to fight marijuana-related crimes, like poaching on public lands and draining streams dry. Some streams have dried up in part because of drought, but also because many growers pump water regularly to large storage tanks which have lately dotted the landscape in some rural areas. They supply water for terraced planting that has produced erosion into streams, creating other problems. One reason there are no controls: The Emerald Triangle features thousands of acres owned by timber companies and other large property holders who rarely, if ever, patrol their holdings. So pot growers brazenly squat on the land, often setting booby-traps in their immediate vicinity and bringing in crews of undocumented laborers from Central America. Nicaragua is reportedly a major source of such labor. One result is that fish runs essential to survival of coho salmon and steelhead trout can end as young fish are left high and dry, literally fish out of water. Plus, growers often use pesticides and rat poisons with little regard for whether they drain back into stream beds and future water supplies, or for whether poisoned animals and insects enter the food chain after being eaten by birds. Enter the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, whose jurisdiction runs north from Marin County to the Oregon state line. Calling it a “first step” toward protecting water resources, that board voted 5-1 in late summer to compel growers to register their operations and operate with environmental responsibility. That could mean restrictions on water use, as well as protecting streams and wildlife from contamination. The new regulations, billed as a pilot program that will spread to the rest of the state if successful, don’t aim to arrest growers and in fact provide ways for them to screen their identities from officers out to enforce federal laws still outlawing all pot production. “We are not endorsing marijuana cultivation” one board member said. But the board is officially recognizing widespread growing which often disregards county-set limits on the number of medipot plants one person may raise. In this battle of fish vs. pot, it’s clear the weed is winning for now, but at least the plight of the salmon and trout has been officially recognized for the first time. What happens if a ballot initiative fully legalizes recreational marijuana next year? That’s anyone guess.

Extreme Measure Considered With Caution


. I read that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had obesity surgery. What exactly did he have done and does it work? . Governor Christie had Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB) surgery which limits food intake with a band around the top of the stomach. The size of the restriction can be adjusted with a circular balloon inside the band. AGB works mainly by decreasing food intake. The snugger the band, the less hungry people feel. AGB is one form of obesity--or bariatric--surgery. One study of this type of surgery showed that patients lost an average of 61 percent of their excess weight. In addition to AGB, there are three other types of obesity surgery used in the USA: Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass reduces food intake and absorption. This is the most common obesity surgery. In gastric bypass surgery, the stomach is divided into two parts. Food is rerouted from the smaller upper part of the stomach, called the pouch, to the small intestine. Food no longer travels through the remaining part of the stomach . Duodenal Switch removes a large portion of the stomach, reroutes food away from much of the small intestine and also reroutes digestive juices. Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy involves removing a large portion of the stomach and creating a tubular gastric sleeve. The smaller stomach sleeve remains connected to a very short segment of the duodenum, which is then directly connected to a lower part of the small intestine. This operation leaves a small portion of the duodenum available for food and the absorption of some vitamins and minerals. Obesity surgery is an extreme measure designed for men who are at least 100 pounds overweight and women at least 80 pounds overweight. There is no upper age limit for this type of surgery. However, the procedure is riskier for anyone older than 65. Obesity surgery may be done through a traditional abdominal opening or by laparoscopy, which requires only a half-inch incision. The surgeon uses the small incision to insert instruments and a camera that transmits images to a television. Most bariatric surgery today is done laparoscopically. Many people who have bariatric surgery lose weight quickly. If you follow diet and exercise recommendations, you can keep most of the weight off. The surgery has risks and complications including infections, hernias and blood clots. Answers to the following questions from the National Institutes of Health may help people decide whether weight-loss surgery is right for them. Is the overweight person: • Unlikely to lose weight or keep it off over the long term using other methods? • Well informed about the surgery and treatment effects? • Aware of the risks and benefits of surgery? • Ready to lose weight and improve his or her health? • Aware of how life may change after the surgery? There are adjustments such as the need to chew food well and the loss of ability to eat large meals. • Aware of the limits on food choices, and occasional failures? • Committed to lifelong healthy eating and physical activity, medical follow-up, and the need to take extra vitamins and minerals? Bariatric procedures, on average, cost from $20,000 to $25,000. Medical insurance coverage varies by state and insurance provider. Medicare covers some bariatric surgical procedures when you meet certain conditions related to morbid obesity.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

New Hope for the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis


new study gets closer to identifying the mechanisms responsible for Multiple Sclerosis and makes headway in the search for better treatments. Modern scientific understanding has considered Multiple Sclerosis (MS) to be a disease controlled by the T cell, a type of white blood cell. Research has shown that in MS, T cells inappropriately attack myelin, the protective layer of fat covering nerves in the central nervous system, exposing them to damage. Emerging studies have also discovered that B cells, another type of white blood cells that had previously been overlooked in MS, are significant contributors to the disease. Recent clinical trials revealed that B cell depletion Therapy (BCDT) in people with relapsing-remitting MS led to dramatic decreases in new disease activity. But how B cells contribute to the disease and the molecular mechanisms involved in the benefit of BCDT has not been fully elucidated. The study by Dr. Amit Bar-Or at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital and colleagues and published in the October issue of Science

Translational Medicine, provides groundbreaking insight into the role of B cells and their complex interaction with other immune cells in the context of MS. “We’ve recently discovered that different types of human B cells exist. Some B cells have been shown to promote inflammation, while others are actually able to limit inflammation. Our study has implicated a subset of B cells, the GM-CSF producing B cells, as a key contributor in the pro-inflammatory immune cells responses at play in MS,” explained Dr. Amit Bar-Or, Director of the Experimental Therapeutics Program and Scientific Director of the Clinical Research Unit, at the Montreal Neurological Institute and senior author of the study. The study first examined samples of MS patients comparing them to healthy subjects. Researchers discovered that GM-CSF producing B cells were more frequent and more prone to activation in MS patients. This subset of B cells was able to activate pro-inflammatory responses of myeloid cells of the immune system Confirming these results in patients, the researchers found that after B cell depletion Therapy (BCDT), the myeloid cells became much less proinflammatory, suggesting that

BCDT may work in part by decreasing the number of GMCSF-producing B cells and in turn limiting both myeloid cell and T cell contribution to new disease activity. “The study is significant in discovering a new way by which B cells can contribute to abnormal immune responses in MS which reinforces the rationale for the use of B cell depletion therapy. Furthermore, better identifying the particular subset of B cells responsible for new disease activity, we can look forward to more selectively targeting the “bad” B cells while leaving “good” B cells intact. This is important because B cells normally play key roles in our immune system, so more selective therapies offer the prospect of decreasing the risk of impairing the patients’ immune system in the long run.” With one of the highest prevalence rates in the world, over 100,000 Canadians live with Multiple Sclerosis; there is currently no cure for the disease. This study shows promise for the development of the next generation of targeted treatments that could one day provide a cure for this debilitating disease. Source: McGill University Health Centre

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART XIX

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” Over the past 2,000 years there have been many writings, books, messages, and ideas, expressing various thoughts and opinions concern who Jesus was and is. My intention in doing this series is that you, the reader may come to know who Jesus really is and there is no better place to look than the Word of God the Bible. This week, we will continue looking at the events that occurred one day in the life of Jesus. Mark 10:17-31 “Now as He was going out on the road, one came running, knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Do not defraud,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’ “ And he answered and said to Him, “Teacher, all these I have observed from my youth.” Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.” But he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Then Jesus looked around and said to His disciples, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!” And the disciples were astonished at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” And they were greatly astonished, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved?” But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” Then Peter began to say to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You.” So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time--houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions--and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.” Last week we saw the discourse between Jesus and the rich young ruler and the decision this man made that affected his eternity. Now we will look at the discourse that ensued with His disciples after the man left. Jesus said to His disciples “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!” note Jesus did not say impossible but hard (difficult). At this the disciples were astonished for they like many thought that riches were a sign of God’s favor and that the rich and religious would be the first ones to get to Heaven. Jesus corrects this erroneous thinking by saying, “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Did you see the key word Jesus spoke? ‘trust’, those who trust in riches. Nothing but faith in Jesus Christ will get a person to Heaven, not riches, good works, being good, NOTHING! Riches are neither good nor evil but because of our sinful heart there is an inherent danger that often accompanies them. Jesus warned this in the Parable of the Sower, Mark 4:18-19 “Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” And the Apostle Paul in his letter to Timothy said this, 1 Tim 6:5-19 “Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows…. Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.”

SANTEE — The Santee School District Board of Education announced the opening of a new Recreational Multi-Purpose Grass Field at Pepper Drive School to serve the youth of East County. Construction of the field was made possible by a generous $200,000 grant provided by the County of San Diego Neighborhood Reinvestment Program. Normally, installation of a new grass field might be discouraged given the State of California’s severe water shortage. However, this field is irrigated solely by a new deep water well installed at Pepper Drive School,’ The field will be used daily by students at Pepper Drive School and after school and on weekends by local American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) teams for practices and games. The joint use capabilities of the field are made possible through a Joint Use Partnership Agreement with the Lakeside AYSO and in coordination with the Santee Sports Council.

New Tiger Cub Saturday, October 24 • Alipne Jay Renard/The East County Herald See more photos at

ALPINE — In early September, Lions Tigers & Bears (LTB) was called on by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife to provide refuge to a 3 month old tiger cub that was anonymously turned in to the Ramona Humane Society in San Jacinto. As an accredited big cat and exotic animal rescue sanctuary, the Department deemed LTB the best fit to house the cub, as his origin is unknown and is under investigation. The cub’s anterior paws had been declawed by his previous owner. This type of procedure is inherently cruel and can cause major complications later in life, including joint stiffness, chronic pain and arthritis. Initial tests came back clear of parasites, however his blood panel showed an elevated white blood cell count, and he has apparent signs of malnutrition. Sadly, stories such as his are far too common – a cub is bought illegally as a pet, and the novelty quickly wears off. The cub gets sold off, or worse yet, dumped and left to be forgotten about. Luckily, for this cub, he was turned into the shelter and made his way to our\\\the LTB sanctuary, where he will receive the specialized care he requires. Bobbi Brink, Founder and Director of LTB commented “Cubs born into captivity, bought, sold and traded, are a tragic circumstance that is perpetuated by ignorance. A cub this young should be with his mother and brothers and/or sisters. Right now this cub needs attention, and he needs to get healthy.” Since arrival, the cub underwent a veterinary examination in which radiographs were taken of his paws and full body. He is being monitored closely by their keeper staff and veterinary team.

Santee Making Spirits Bright SANTEE — Roving carolers, a live band and snow sledding for children are among highlights featured at the City of Santee and Waste Management Holiday Lighting Celebration on Friday, Nov. 20. Held at Santee Trolley Square, the annual celebration of the holiday season offers three hours of family oriented fun from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. “This event really reinforces Santee’s reputation for small-town hospitality and community spirit,” said Bree Humphrey, the city’s special events supervisor. “It’s truly a joyful and nostalgic event that will get you in the right mood for the holidays,” she said. “It’s a chance for the community to join hands, celebrate our unity and take pictures of our children having fun.” The main attraction is the ceremonial lighting of a 20-foot artificial tree. Anticipation builds as the announcer counts down “three, two, one,” and waves a wand. At that instant, the tree’s lights flash on and candle-shaped fireworks go off in the background, prompting the crowd to roar in delight.

The end of Daylight Savings Time

aylight Savings Time is over. Who started it anyway? All this gaining an hour, losing an hour. . . Good question—let me go check. Wow! A bug guy! George Vernon Hudson, an entomologist, wanted more daylight to study bugs after work on summer days, so in 1895 he came up with the idea. Only he wanted two hours, not one. Loved those bugs! He didn’t study bugs in winter. Well, I don’t study bugs at all, so I’m going to go radical and suggest a daily 20 second adjustment to ease us into the time change. I’ll bet ol’ George only had one clock to re-set. We have clocks everywhere these days and it’s no fun, re-setting them all twice a year. Some are programmed to re-set themselves but you don’t know which ones until the morning after, and you’d think the just plain clocks would be easy, but some of them make you move the hour hand forward eleven hours to go back one hour. If no one’s looking, I quick move the hand back an hour. On some of the electronic stuff, you have to hold the button down until the numbers get to where you want them,

but the numbers flash past the one you want and you have to start over. Then you have to change the AM/PM indicator and the date and the day of the week, and when you’re done with all that, you’ve lost an hour. The hardest is re-setting your inner body clock—your circadian rhythm. My circadian thing does okay until the second day after the time change, which happens to be a Monday. Then it rebels: it’s too early to wake up! I’m not ready to go to work yet! So. I got out my calculator

seconds a day. Hey, I’m no scientist, but if you happen to be one, it’s more like 19.7260274 seconds. Programming to do this shouldn’t be too hard for the IT people. We’d have to buy all new clocks and gadgets or have the old ones reprogrammed, but that’s a small price to pay for avoiding severe shocks to our system every spring and fall. We wouldn’t have to stop and think: “Is this the weekend we’re s’posed to move our clocks forward? Or is it backward?” And we’d eliminate all those accidents caused by commuters who aren’t used to driving home in the dark because they would have been adjusting, day by day, 20 seconds at a time. Sorry, George. Daylight Savings Time is a thing of the past. Get a flashlight.

“ For you mathematicians: to gain one hour over 182.5 days, we need to gain 60 minutes times 60 seconds, or 3,600 seconds“ and did some calculating and discovered we can gain an hour—or lose one—without all this fuss every fall and spring. We take away 20 seconds each day until spring and voila! no need to re-set the clocks! Then we add 20 seconds every day until fall and yay! we’re back on Standard Time. For you mathematicians: to gain one hour over 182.5 days, we need to gain 60 minutes times 60 seconds, or 3,600 seconds. Divide that by 182.5 days and you have roughly 20
