ALPINE — Viejas Casino & Resort has officially opened their second luxury hotel tower and expanded casino Friday, Oct. 30. Thousands were in attendance for the grand opening ceremony for the new fivestory tower. Separated by the hotel pool area and the Park at Viejas––a designated space for concerts and special events–– the new hotel tower stands near its perfect partner, Viejas’ first hotel tower, which opened in March of 2013. The $50 million hotel tower features 109 deluxe rooms and luxury suites, a fitness center and business center, a spacious bar and lounge, and nine state-of-the-art meeting spaces including the Oak Ballroom, accommodating up to 1,200 attendees. Upgraded amenities in the VIP suites include multiple HDTVs, handcrafted furniture and décor, oversized shower, Jacuzzi whirlpool baths, and more. This expansion creates an additional 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor multifunction resort space, and increases current hotel accommodations to a total of 237 rooms and suites. “Our new hotel tower and casino expansion brings a new

level of refinement and guest services to our community. We are grateful to our loyal guests for taking this journey with us,” commented Viejas Tribal Chairman Robert Welch. The grand opening celebration included a thrilling tightrope performance by Tino Wallenda of the world-famous Flying Wallendas. Wallenda walked the distance between both hotel towers on a tightrope suspended five stories high, all set to a live performance by the San Diego Symphony. Test drives of Viejas’ featured Dream Machine, the Aston Martin Vantage GT, were conducted throughout the evening. The events concluded with a spectacular fireworks display and exclusive tours of the new hotel tower. Viejas General Manager Chris Kelley commented, “The opening of our newest hotel tower represents an opportunity to show our guests how valued they are and to demonstrate our team’s commitment to excellence.” The opening of the second Viejas Hotel Tower is the crowning achievement in a year-long development project that includes the addition of

1,000 all new slot machines. The expanded casino floor opened Friday, Oct. 9.

Herald Guest Commentary with Paul G. Kengor

Surviving Hitler’s ‘Hell-Hole’... Remembering Frank Kravetz “Just existing became what was important.”


o said Frank Kravetz, World War II veteran and former captive of Nuremberg Prison Camp, or what Frank called the Nazi “hell-hole.” “Yet even as I struggled with the day-to-day sadness and despair,” said Frank, “I never once had any regrets that I signed up to serve.” An extended tour of Nazi camps as a wounded POW scratching for survival wasn’t what Frank had in mind when he signed up to serve his country in World War II. The kid from the smoky steel-mills of East Pittsburgh enlisted in the Army Air Corps. He became a tail-gunner. Frank’s life took a dramatic turn on November 2, 1944 in a bomb-run over Germany. He crammed into the tail of a B-17, wedged inside a flak jacket. The target was Merseberg, a major industrial area. He flew amid an air armada of 500 heavy bombers—each carrying eighteen 250-pound “general purpose” bombs—escorted by 900 fighter planes. While the Americans were ready for business, so was the Luftwaffe. Frank’s plane came under hot pursuit by German fighters. Frank took them on with a twin .50 caliber machine gun. It was a dogfight, and Frank was badly wounded. His B-17 was filled with holes. The crew had to bail, quickly. Frank was bleeding profusely and could barely move. His buddies tried to get a parachute on him, but it opened inside the plane. They wrapped it around him, taking care not to cross the chords, and tossed him out. To Frank’s great relief, the chute opened. Instantly, the deafening chaos quieted, and Frank said he floated like he

was on the wings of angels. The tranquility halted with a rude thump as Frank hit the ground. German soldiers immediately seized him. Thus began “Hell’s journey,” as Frank dubbed it. Destination: Stalag 13-D. Liberation finally came April 29, 1945, by General Patton’s Third Army. Frank described the jubilant scene: “After the flag was raised, General Patton rolled in, sitting high in a command car. His very presence was aweinspiring. I stood there staring at General Patton, our liberator, appearing larger than life.” Thousands of emaciated, ecstatic POWs chanted, “Patton! Patton! Patton!” Some fell to their knees, overcome with emotion. Patton seized a bullhorn and spoke: “Gentlemen—you’re now liberated and under Allied control…. We’re going to get you out of here.” It finally hit Frank and his remaining 125 pounds: “I’m going home. I’m really going home!” Frank eventually arrived in New York City and hitchhiked all the way to Pittsburgh. He unceremoniously arrived at his folks’ front door—no trumpets, no dramatic music, no parade. He hugged his mom and dad and sat down. He found and married his sweetheart, Anne. How did Frank survive this Nazi “hell-hole?” “All I can say is that the good Lord was watching out for me,” wrote Frank in a riveting memoir, Eleven Two: One WWII Airman’s Story of Capture, Survival and Freedom. There, Frank provided the secret to his survival and success: “Pray. It helps.” It’s a message that Frank shared with young people every chance he had: “I prayed throughout my ordeal, asking Him for help.” He shared it with me, my sons, and a classroom of my students four years ago. As Frank prayed, he promised God that he would never complain about anything again if he survived. That’s a promise he kept. Our blessings are so bountiful that we

Dr. Paul Kengor need to be grateful, especially compared to the deprivations others have faced—like a Nazi prison camp. We need to be always grateful, said Frank, and always faithful. That was Frank Kravetz, winner of the Purple Heart. I’ve told Frank’s story before. I tell it again now for two reasons: First, Veterans Day falls again this November (as does Thanksgiving), a time to remember men like Frank. And second, sadly, this will be a Veterans Day without Frank Kravetz. Frank died in August, at age 91. He joined his beloved wife Anne, who died just four months prior. They were married for 68 years. A mutual friend attended Frank’s funeral and the luncheon that followed at the local VFW in East Pittsburgh, of which Frank was a founder. He told me that of the 100 original founding members, only two remain. Yes, only two. This Veterans Day, let’s take a few minutes from our insanely busy lives and from this insane culture and country—one that those vets would not recognize—to remember men like Frank Kravetz who served with no regrets. The freedoms we have today, many of which we merrily abuse today, are possible only because of the abuse they suffered at the hands of hellacious enemies 70 years ago.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Making it Easier to Seek Death Than Longer Life


ov. Jerry Brown may not have been aware of what he was doing, but a combination of his signatures and vetoes on bills passed by the Legislature will make it easier for desperately ill persons to seek death in California than to attempt to live longer. With one of his moves, Brown provided a bit of a revelation of his inner thinking. The window into his psyche came as he approved the state’s new “right to die” law, allowing mentally sound patients in hopeless medical situations to get help in ending their suffering. Days later, though, he vetoed another bill that would have given terminally ill patients wanting to stay alive the right to try whatever drug they like, be it conventional, controversial or experimental. Brown wrote in a signing message that he agonized over whether to sign the right to die law, finally being swayed by thoughts of what he might want if he were ever in a seemingly hopeless, painful situation. But there was no such introspection in his veto message on the “right to try” legislation, sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Ian Calderon of eastern Los Angeles County. Yes, Brown said, “Patients with life threatening conditions should be able to try experimental drugs,” but he added that they should go through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s compassionate use program, which allows some people access to investigative drugs. The trouble is, the FDA’s process often requires many months, multiple lawyers, plenty of money and/or political clout. Many terminally ill patients die long before they complete the application process. So the window into Brown’s psyche shows he can conceive of being so ill he’d rather die than fight on, but he can’t see himself ever being ill, desperate to live and in a situation where no legally approved drug can help him, but an experimental one might. So much for the governor’s vaunted imagination. With his veto, Brown closed a window that appeared to open once before for the very ill who want to try something different to solve their problems. The previous window appeared to open back in 2000, when thenGov. Gray Davis signed what was hailed as a landmark law and potential life-saver for cancer patients. Health insurance companies were virtually the only dissenters back then and they have since effectively stymied the measure. This law, passed as SB37 and still on the books, is simple in its concept. Patients who qualify for clinical trials of new cancer drugs should be able to participate in and benefit from those trials without financial concerns. If a clinical trial is not ongoing in California, insurance companies would have to cover routine patient costs associated with participation, wherever in America it was conducted. This sounded simple in 2000, but insurance companies routinely refused to pay patient expenses in the first few years after it passed. The experience of the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, TX, where more than 20 FDA-supervised clinical trials of a treatment called antineoplastons have been completed, is typical. That clinic has had many patients from California, but almost none has been funded by insurance carriers, as the law intended. (Full disclosure: Columnist Elias has written a book, The Burzynski Breakthrough, now in its fourth printing, about the antineoplaston treatment and its problems in winning full government approval.) The upshot is that the window of hope Davis opened for patients almost 15 years ago has never been very wide, mostly because of insurance company resistance. Now Brown has extinguished the latest spark of hope for many of the same patients who benefit from the 15-year-old SB37, and others. Brown did not quarrel with anything Calderon said in introducing the latest measure. “Although the FDA approves most compassionate use requests it receives, it often takes doctors and patients… months to navigate the process,” Calderon said. “For terminally ill patients, the waiting period can be a matter of life and death. Patients suffering from a terminal illness should be able to exercise a basic freedom – to preserve their own life.” Former Roman Catholic seminarian Brown ought to have known that the potentially fatal combination of his latest decisions runs completely counter to the Biblical commandment written in the Book of Deuteronomy (30:19): “…today I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live.” Elias is author of the current book “The Burzynski Breakthrough: The Most Promising Cancer Treatment and the Government’s Campaign to Squelch It. The book is now available in soft cover, fourth edition. His opinions are his own. He can be reached at tdelias@aol.com

Arthritis: Inflammation of the Joints


. It seems to me that arthritis is a catch-all term for all kinds of aches and pains. What exactly is arthritis?

. Arthritis, which comes in more than 100 different forms, is inflammation of the joints. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout are the three most common forms of arthritis among seniors. Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent. None are contagious.


You get osteoarthritis when cartilage—the cushioning tissue within the joints—wears down. This produces stiffness and pain. The disease affects both men and women. By age 65, more than 50 percent of us have osteoarthritis in at least one joint. You can get osteoarthritis in any joint, but it usually strikes those that support weight. Common signs of osteoarthritis include joint pain, swelling, and tenderness. However, only a third of people whose x-rays show osteoarthritis report any symptoms. Treatments for osteoarthritis include exercise, joint care, dieting, medicines and surgery. For pain relief, doctors usually start with acetaminophen, the medicine in Tylenol, because the side effects are minimal. If acetaminophen does not relieve pain, then non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen may be used. The dietary supplements glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are used by many who say the supplements can relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Full Service Salon

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis, which is characterized by inflammation of the joint lining, is very different from osteoarthritis. It occurs when the immune system turns against the body. It not only affects the joints, but may also attack other parts of the body such as the lungs and eyes. People with rheumatoid arthritis may feel sick. There’s a symmetry to rheumatoid arthritis. For example, if the right knee is affected, it’s likely the left knee will suffer, too. Women are much more likely than men to get rheumatoid arthritis. Treatments for rheumatoid arthritis include exercise, medication and surgery. Reducing stress is important. Some drugs for rheumatoid arthritis relieve pain. Some reduce inflammation. And then there are the DMARDs (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs), which can often slow the disease.


Gout usually attacks at night. Stress, alcohol, drugs or an illness can trigger gout. It’s caused by a build-up of crystals of uric acid in a joint. Uric acid is in all human tissue and is found in foods. Often, gout affects joints in the lower part of the body such as the ankles, heels, knees, and especially the big toes. The disease is more common in men. Early attacks usually subside within three to 10 days, even without treatment, and the next attack may not occur for months or even years. Most people with gout are able to control their symptoms with treatment. The most common treatments are high doses of oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or corticosteroids, which are taken by mouth or injected into the affected joint. Patients often begin to improve within a few hours of treatment. Ask The Healthy Geezer a question at: fred@healthygeezer.com

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Researchers identify key protein involved in ‘super-inflammatory’ immune response


esearchers have made another important step in the progress towards being able to block the development of multiple sclerosis (MS) and other autoimmune diseases. Published Thursday, Oct. 29 in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers at the University of Adelaide have identified a key protein involved in a ‘super-inflammatory’ immune response that drives the progression of MS and other autoimmune diseases. The protein is a specific ‘chemokine receptor’ involved in moving the body’s immune response cells, the T-cells, around the body when they are in the super-inflammatory mode needed to fight persistent infections or conversely, as in the case of autoimmune diseases like MS, attacking the body’s own tissues. This chemokine receptor, called CCR2, is a different receptor than was widely assumed to be involved. “Everybody has been focussing on the CCR6 receptor as the one to target to control this

inflammatory response,” says project leader Professor Shaun McColl, Director of the Centre for Molecular Pathology at the University of Adelaide. “We’ve now shown that the receptor to target is actually CCR2. Blocking CCR6 makes the disease worse. If we can find an antagonist to block the CCR2 receptor specifically on these T-cells, we should be able to control the progression of MS.” MS is an incurable neurodegenerative disease, currently affecting 23,000 people in Australia and the most common disease of the central nervous system in young adults. “We still can’t control MS well, there’s a great need for new therapies,” says Professor McColl. The University of Adelaide research was conducted by PhD student Ervin Kara under the supervision of Professor McColl and research fellow Dr Iain Comerford, also in the University’s School of Biological Sciences. Another potential benefit of the research is in making improved vaccines to fight infection. “Unlike in autoimmune


diseases, where the body’s immune response is destroying its own cells and the aim is to block T-cell migration, with persistent infection we want to turn on the superinflammatory response and enhance the migration of the immune cells to sites where they are needed,” says Professor McColl. “This research may help guide development of vaccines that can better force that immune response.”

UCSD Alzheimer’s Caregiver Study Aims to Help Family Caregivers Cope With Stress LA JOLLA — Family caregivers often spend considerable time caring for their loved ones. As a result, they may feel fatigued, stressed, and emotionally and physically “run-down.” Since 1990, the UCSD Alzheimer’s Caregiver study has studied the health effects of caregiving and found caregivers may be at increased risk for a number of health consequences. Investigators for the caregiver study found caregivers have stress levels that are four-times higher than their non-caregiving peers, and caregivers are more than 12 times as likely to experience significant symptoms of depression. Physically, caregivers appear to have higher rates of hypertension and appear to be at

higher risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. There is evidence that developing the right coping skills may benefit caregivers both emotionally and physically. It appears that helping caregivers cope may have both emotional and physical benefits. The UCSD Department of Psychiatry is now conducting a research study to evaluate the effectiveness of two educational programs for reducing stress, improving emotional well-being, and reducing risk for cardiovascular disease among caregivers. This study is funded by a five-year grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH). To qualify, individuals must be 55 years of age or older and pro-

vide in-home care for a spouse or partner who has been diagnosed with dementia Caregivers will receive five in-home health evaluations over the course of two years, which include an assessment of blood pressure, markers of cardiovascular risk, and an ultrasound evaluation of arterial health. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two educational programs designed to improve coping skills. Both programs involve six in-home meetings with the study therapist. All procedures will be provided at the home and are at no cost. Those who are eligible and choose to participate will be paid up to $500.

A Day in the Life of Jesus Sharp Grossmont Hospital Receives ‘Get With The the Messiah Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement PART XXXI Award With Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Designation’

LA MESA — Sharp Grossmont’s commitment to quality care for stroke patients is recognized for sixth consecutive year by receiving the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll Elite designation. The award recognizes the hospital’s commitment and success to ensuring that stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, researchdriven guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence. “We are proud to have earned the Gold Plus award for six consecutive years, and are also excited to be recognized with the Target Stroke Elite status,” said Gail Lighthizer, Stroke Program Manager at Sharp Grossmont. “The care we deliver is our number one priority, and we are committed to improving the quality of stroke care by making sure our patients receive treatment based on established clinical guidelines.” To receive the Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, hospitals must achieve 85 percent or higher adherence to all Get With The Guidelines-Stroke achievement indicators for two or more consecutive 12-month periods and achieve 75 percent or higher compliance with five of eight Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Quality measures. To qualify for the Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite, hos-

pitals must meet quality measures developed to reduce the time between the patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA, the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat ischemic stroke. If given intravenously in the first three hours after the start of stroke symptoms, tPA has been shown to significantly reduce the effects of stroke and lessen the chance of permanent disability. Sharp Grossmont earned the award by meeting specific achievement and quality measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients for the last two years. These quality measures are designed to help hospital teams provide the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients. For providers, Get With The Guidelines-Stroke offers quality improvement measures, discharge protocols, standing orders and other measurement tools. Providing hospitals with resources and information that make it easier to follow treatment guidelines can help save lives and ultimately reduce overall health care costs by lowering readmission rates for stroke patients. For patients, Get With The Guidelines-Stroke uses the “teachable moment,” the time soon after a patient has had a

stroke, when they learn how to manage their risk factors while still in the hospital and recognize the F.A.S.T. warning signs of a stroke. According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the fifth cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. Sharp Grossmont Hospital has been serving the East County community for 60 years. It is the largest not-for-profit, full-service, acute-care hospital in San Diego’s East County and is part of Sharp HealthCare. The hospital is known for its clinical excellence in emergency and critical care, cardiac and cancer care, surgery, stroke care, orthopedics, rehabilitation, behavioral health, women’s and children’s health and hospice care. The hospital offers extensive outpatient services and prevention programs such as home infusion, sleep disorder care, wound care and hyperbaric medicine to support Sharp HealthCare’s emphasis on community health and wellness. Sharp Grossmont is a Magnet-designated hospital and committed to providing the highest quality care.

reetings, precious people. 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 9:33-50 “Then He came to Capernaum. And when He was in the house He asked them, “What was it you disputed among yourselves on the road?” But they kept silent, for on the road they had disputed among themselves who would be the greatest. And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.” Then He took a little child and set him in the midst of them. And when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them, whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me.” Now John answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.” But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is on our side. For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward. “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched-- where ‘Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’ “And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched-- where ‘Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’ “And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire—where ‘Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’ “For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt. Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another.” There are a number of items that are addressed here in our text. First, is the ongoing dispute among the disciples as to who among them was the greatest. This topic of greatness seemed to take up much of their thoughts and conversation, even up to and including the very time in which Jesus would be betrayed and crucified. This desire to be the ‘greatest’ has been a trait of mankind through the ages. It was one of the very things Satan tempted Eve with back in the Garden of Eden when he said to Eve, “You will become as god.” Today man falls for the same lie through various means, whether by evolution; humanism; or any other form it may present itself. As this desire to be ‘great’ is lived out by people in a culture, the effects on that culture are devastating. In one’s quest to be ‘great’, others are used; abused; taken advantage of and life becomes very cheap. We are seeing this in our culture, the ‘me’ mentality, as people are focused so much upon themselves, just consider the ‘selfie’ craze that is dominating many people’s lives. Jesus spent much of His time confronting His disciples about their being consumed with ‘self ’ as is recorded in our text. “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.” Today, Jesus through the Holy Spirit and the Word of God attempts to correct the thinking of those that choose to follow Him. It is quite ‘natural’ to think of ones self and seek to be first, but for those that would follow Jesus, there needs to be a totally different way of thinking as is expressed by the Apostle Paul in Philippians 2:1-4 “Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.”

The La Mesa Chamber Launches Annual Senior Project LA MESA — The La Mesa Chamber is beginning to gather items for the 22 seniors that the Chamber adopts each year during the holidays. It is the goal of the Chamber to collect, purchase and assemble items and place them in large gift baskets. These gift baskets are delivered along with a hot turkey dinner, with all of the trimmings to the selected seniors by the La Mesa Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol. The date of this year’s delivery is Friday, December 18th. The deadline to receive the gifts for our seniors is Friday, December 11th. This will allow time to wrap all of the items, prepare all of the gift baskets and purchase the items needed we believe will make this holiday so special for these wonderful members of our community! Here are items that we suggest you can purchase to donate to this year’s gift baskets: 22 canned soups, 22 canned vegetables, 22 canned fruits, 22 packets of crackers, 22 packets of pasta or macaroni & cheese, 18 slipper socks for women, 4 pairs of men’s socks, Gift cards in any denomination from the following locations: Walmart, Target, or any grocery store, 22 pens and pads of paper. If you have another item you believe will put a smile on their faces, by all means drop them off! We want to make this again, a memorable holiday for our home bound seniors. All donated items must be received by Friday, December 11th to be included in the senior gift baskets. They may be delivered to the La Mesa Chamber office: 8080 La Mesa Blvd., Suite 212 in La Mesa or contact Mary England and she can coordinate picking up the items from you - cell 619-251-7730.

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. At the same time, decorative lights at the city’s entry monuments also are turned on. The event offers many low-cost or free activities. There will be booths to browse and samples from local eateries. Craft stations will be set up where children can decorate a cookie and make personalized elf hats or decorate their own ceramic tile, courtesy of Home Depot. Horse-drawn carriage rides will be available for $2 per person, except for children 3 years or younger, who may ride for free on a lap of an adult. Children will be able to confide their wish lists to Santa. Professional photos with the jolly guy will be available for $12. Santa has a new sleigh that will be available for family photos. Information about the event is available by calling the Santee Special Events Hotline at (619) 258-4100 x201.



UP AGAINST ITBuska with S.


Those stickers on the apples

he fruits at the grocery store all have those little stickers on them. The apple I was about to eat had one firmly affixed to its skin—the skin I love to eat. I don’t love eating stickers. If you’re one of those people who cuts up your fruit and eats it in tidy little pieces, you can throw away the piece with the sticker on it, but I love to sink my teeth into the apple, so the sticker had to go. I’ve heard those stickers are edible, but I’ve never acquired a taste for edible stickers. Usually it only takes me two or three minutes to remove one, but today’s sticker was super stubborn. I could not get it off but I wanted that apple, so I kept trying. Like a golfer surveying the angles of the slopes surrounding the eighteenth hole, I observed that sticker from every angle. Aha! I spied a tiny gap between the sticker and the apple skin. I sneaked up on it and slid the tip of my finger into the tiny gap. My finger slipped on the slick, shiny skin of the apple. I tried again. I charged into that gap with vigor and vim and tore the tiny label right

off that apple. Got a little skin with it, too. The apple’s, not mine. I tossed the label into the nearest trash can. Not so easy. The sticker stuck to my finger. Five tries later I got it into the trash can—without my finger. That’s when I began to wonder. . . What is this label all about? How come they stick one on every single piece of fruit? I reached into the trash can, pulled out the sticker, smoothed out its wrinkles and stuck it to a sheet of paper. The tiny print said, “Royal Gala Sweet #4173.”

the words, “Stemilt Golden Delicious.” Below the mountain was the number #4021. Ah! Would the other apple be #4022? or #4020? No, both apples had the same number, so the number must be the code for the variety of apple, unless it’s the “Packed by employee number” number. I put the two apples back and went off to enjoy my now sticker-less Royal Gala Sweet #4173. I’m thinking someone will come up with a gadget for removing those stickers easily. Or better—they could flavor the stickers so they don’t taste like paper. Caramel for apples, whipped cream for peaches. . . Hey, maybe those stickers should be a little bigger.

“Usually it only takes me two or

three minutes to remove one, but today’s sticker was super stubborn“ They count the apples? This was the last of the Royal Gala apples at our house, so I couldn’t look for #4172, nor for #4174, but I had more apples in the refrigerator—a different kind. I checked out the label on one of them. The words “Responsible Choice” were printed next to a tiny red ladybug. Not alive, I hoped. Nope—it was a lifelike drawing. Did this mean that ladybugs like apples? Further down on the label, running across a couple of Blue Mountain peaks were

San Diego Regional Fire & Emergency Services Foundation has received a $25,000 grant from the Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a public agency that supports various health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County region. The grant will assist in the purchase of emergency medical equipment, including automatic electronic defibrillators (AEDs) and mass casualty incident (MCI) kits, for rural fire departments serving East County communities. The new AEDs, to be placed on all fire engines, will replace many AEDs that are 10 years or older and are no longer fully functional. The MCI kits will enable emergency personnel to treat multiple victims on the scene prior to their transportation to area hospitals. The MCI kits will be used for multiple victims of such emergencies as a school or workplace shooting, terrorist attack, multi-vehicle automobile accident, major fire, earthquake or collapsed building. GHD has supported the Fire Foundation since 2007.
