Local Artist Shares Beauty of Santa Sophia Catholic Church

By Marissa Alfano

For The East County Herald SPRING VALLEY —Local artists from California State Senate District 38 had the opportunity to submit their artwork earlier this year for a chance to have it displayed in the state Capitol. Senate District 38 is represented by State Senator Joel Anderson and includes parts of East County and North County of San Diego. Artwork submitted in the past tended to reflect the beautiful landscapes of the district, the amazing people who make positive impact, or special events in the community. Marianne Bickhaus was one of the artists who submitted her work for that chance. Bickhaus stated that the artwork she submitted for Anderson’s district art event was also her final project for the Architectural Graphics class at Cuyamaca College where she received an Associate of Science in Architectural Design from. She chose to do an ink and pastel of Santa Sophia Catholic Church in Spring Valley. This was a building that was significant to Bickhaus who moved to San Diego with her husband, Tom, in 1983 and joined the parish of Santa Sophia. “When we first joined, I sang in the choir, served on Parish Council and have been a lector for more than 30 years,” she reflected. In addition to receiving the A+ on the final project, Santa Sophia’s priest asked Bickhaus if they could use her artwork for the parish logo. After submitting the artwork for Anderson’s art collection event, Anderson presented a Senate certificate of recognition to Bickhaus in honor of her outstanding community spirit for this piece. Impressed by Bickhaus’ work, Anderson commented, “Marianne’s work displays passion and talent. Love for the community and beautiful architecture are definitely reflected in this art.” Bickhaus, who is passionate about drawing and coloring ever since she was a child, noted that she has drawn inspiration for her work from her world travels. “As an Air Force brat and wife, I enjoyed a life of travel all over the USA, Europe and Asia. In addition to some amazing cultural experiences, I was always interested in the various architectural designs.” Although she prefers oil painting, Bickhaus says she would eventually like to learn to do watercolor. In addition, she plans to keep reaching her goals and following her aspirations as an artist. “I want to keep on creating art that reflects my worldly travels,” Bickhaus relayed.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Brown Still Helping Developers Evade CEQA

Arabo Ordered to Pay $248,000 Back to NMA and Step Away From Operations SAN DIEGO — After two years of hard-fought litigation, and a five-week bench trial, Judge Richard E. L. Strauss of the San Diego Superior Court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs in the case of A&B Market Plus, Inc., et al v. Neighborhood Market Association, et al. The case was brought as a derivative action on behalf of members of the Neighborhood Market Association (“NMA”), a trade association of convenience stores led by Mark Arabo. The lead trial attorneys for the plaintiffs were Charles S. LiMandri and Paul M. Jonna of LiMandri & Jonna LLP. The Court granted nearly all of the relief requested by the plaintiffs. Shortly after closing arguments, Judge Strauss made his ruling from the bench and began with the following remarks: “This is one of the most unusual cases I’ve had in my 22 years on the bench. I’ve never heard so much fiction under oath. It’s really unbelievable. I don’t even know where to start.” The Court then addressed a number of striking credibility issues on the part of the defendants and their witnesses and ruled as follows: 1. Mark Arabo must pay back the $210,000 “bonus/commission” he received after the NMA sold its Friars Road property. The NMA Board had paid the commission because it was falsely led to believe that

Mr. Arabo was responsible for obtaining a much higher purchase price. After hearing the testimony and reviewing the evidence, the Court concluded that Mr. Arabo misrepresented his efforts in connection with the sale of the building to the NMA Board. This was particularly concerning to the Court in light of the dire financial condition of the NMA at the time. 2. Mark Arabo must pay back the $38,000 in alleged “reimbursement” for travel expenses. Mr. Arabo falsely told the NMA Board that he paid for these expenses, which were not related to NMA business, using his own funds. In fact, Mr. Arabo used the NMA credit card and “double-dipped” – receiving $38,000 for funds that he never actually spent. 3. A Receiver, likely Richard Kipperman, will administer the NMA until such time as there is a fair and open election run by an Independent Election Inspector. The Court will determine the full scope and duties of the Receiver and Election Inspector during a subsequent hearing. However, the Court specifically stated that it has no confidence in the current administration with Mark Arabo and his new company, Refined Management. The Court remarked, “the current [NMA] administration is not properly treating the association or the members or even the board as it stands now.”

4 All NMA Members running for election are entitled to a copy of the NMA membership list, provided that it only be used for election purposes. 5. A&B Market Plus, Inc., which was improperly terminated as an NMA Member after it requested access to the books and records and membership list, is reinstated with full access to the books and records. The three business owners that brought this action and sacrificed their time and treasure to save the NMA are Arkan Somo, Co-Founder and former President and CEO, Samir Salem, former Executive Chairman, and Basil Zetouna, former Executive Chairman. They released the following joint statement: “Our only goals from the beginning were to save the NMA and to expose any misconduct. We are very pleased with this ruling. Justice was served, and the Court was able to see through a significant amount of lies and deception. Mr. Arabo has no place running the NMA or any other nonprofit. We are confident that the Receiver and Independent Election Inspector will bring some order and sanity into this organization that we love and which Mr. Arabo has run into the ground.” For more information, please contact: Paul M. Jonna of LiMandri & Jonna LLP – Office: 858-759-9930

I’ve never seen a CEQA exemption I don’t like.” – Gov. Jerry Brown. Brown made that observation shortly after starting his second go-‘round as California’s chief executive in early 2011, reacting wryly to his 1990s experience as mayor of Oakland, where the California Environmental Quality Act often forced him to battle for pet housing and school projects, including a military academy he still cherishes. So ever since Brown resumed the governor’s office he previously held for eight years in the 1970s and ‘80s, he’s okayed one exemption after another to CEQA, passed in 1970, signed by thenGov. Ronald Reagan and still the state’s key environmental law. He’s gone along with the developer- and union-influenced Legislature time after time, especially on sports-related projects. These include the Sacramento Kings’ new arena, another arena in the works for the Golden State Warriors in the Mission Bay section of San Francisco, the abortive Farmers Field professional football stadium once proposed for downtown Los Angeles and another failed football venue in Carson. The largest project to circumvent CEQA so far is the underconstruction 70,000-seat football stadium and commercial development on the Inglewood site of the former Hollywood Park racetrack that will house both the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers starting in 2020 or 2021. That stadium evaded most CEQA issues via a local ballot initiative in sports-mad Inglewood, the former longtime home of basketball’s Los Angeles Lakers. The measure took advantage of an earlier CEQA change which allows developers to qualify local initiatives okaying the projects for a local ballot and then lets city councils adopt those initiatives with no public vote or debate. There’s also no prohibition on voting by city council members who have taken campaign donations from developers involved. Only existing laws banning direct and provable quid-pro-quos apply here. The emphasis has been on sports projects when it comes to CEQA speedups and exemptions under Brown, but it also includes heavy pushes for items like the so-called Crossroads of the World development near the already jammed intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in Los Angeles. Now Brown has approved yet another major CEQA exemption, this one carried in the Legislature by Democratic Assemblyman Miguel Santiago of Los Angeles. The new measure would allow speedups in the approval process for both a planned expansion of Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park and twin skyscrapers near the existing landmark round Capital Records building in Hollywood. Santiago’s measure entitles any project that costs more than $100 million and meets union-level wage standards, plus standards for greenhouse gas controls, to get final resolution of any CEQA-related lawsuit within nine months. Objectors to many proposed projects attempt to use CEQA strictures in filing lawsuits aiming to stop developments, big and small. But after local citizen groups objected, legislators did not send Brown another measure that would have largely exempted from CEQA a new Inglewood arena for the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team. It’s also a truism in modern California that the more transit projects like light rail are built, the more apartment buildings will quickly go up near it, including both affordable and marketrate housing. Brown, who styles himself a worldwide environmental leader because of his strong backing for renewable energy and his constant battles to stem climate change, had no problem with any of these exemptions. Essentially, he has facilitated some of the most significant building projects in recent California history with little environmental review. But Brown’s past frustrations with delays in Oakland are no justification for depriving citizens of their right to input on big developments near their homes and businesses, as Brown has now done repeatedly. It’s almost as if Brown has a severe case of amnesia, forgetting his 2010 campaign promise to devolve more government authority to local citizens and away from state government. All this is sure to go down in state history as one of the least green and least positive legacies of his long political career.

. What is the most common type of cosmetic surgery?

.

I was surprised by the answer to this question. I guessed facelift and was wrong. My wife, Gale, answered correctly without hesitation. Breast augmentation is the leader. She talks to more women, I guess. Women outnumber men by about 9 to 1 for undergoing cosmetic surgery. According to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the largest organization of board-certified plastic surgeons, these are the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures with the number of annual procedures: • Breast augmentation (290,467) Breast augmentation procedures are increasing and so are the number of silicone implants being used. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned silicone implants in 1992, after some serious problems were reported. In 2006, the FDA allowed the reintroduction of plastic gel implants About half of the implants now are silicone; the other half of implants are made of sterile salt water. In the procedure, the implants are placed beneath either the breast tissue or chest muscles. • Liposuction (235,237) Some people just can’t process fat, even with vigorous exercise and spartan diets. Liposuction is a potential solution, especially if they’re only slightly overweight and have good skin. During liposuction, fat cells are actually liquefied by injection or ultrasound and then removed. The removal of fat cells is permanent. However, it doesn’t prevent the addition of new fat cells. • Nose reshaping (223,018) Rhinoplasty, or as it commonly known, “the nose job,” is popular among all age groups. According to one study, about a third of patients contemplating a nose job could be suffering from a mental illness in which they can’t stop thinking about an imagined or minor flaw in their appearance. • Eyelid surgery (209,020) Skin loses its natural elasticity as we age. However, some people have eyelid problems that are genetic. Eyelid reshaping (blepharoplasty) is performed by plastic surgeons on both the eyelids immediately above and below the eyes, and excess tissue underneath the eyes, too. In some cases, an eyelid lift is required to help improve a patient’s eyesight. • Facelift (131,106) Drooping facial skin is a common problem with aging. During a facelift (rhytidectomy), facial soft tissues are lifted, excess skin is removed and skin is draped back. A neck lift (platysmaplasty) is often done with a facelift. A facelift isn’t a cure-all for wrinkles or sun damage. This can be corrected with a a skin-resurfacing procedure. The ASPS statistics show that some procedures are consistently popular with certain age groups. Nose reshaping is widespread among teenagers. The shape and structure of your nose changes the least during your lifetime. Youngsters undergo rhinoplasty to get a new start. The procedure is common around the time of of high school graduation. Breast augmentation is a popular procedure for those in their 20s, when breasts are usually fully formed. The ASPS says that this is a time when image is very important to women, so they seek larger breasts in order to boost their self-confidence and balance the proportions of their new adult figures. Liposuction is popular for men and women after they are in their 30s, when their metabolism slows and they see a change in the way their bodies deposit fat. The results of aging begin to show in our 40s. Patients between the ages of 40-54 are likely to undergo an eyelid and/or brow lifting surgery. The facelift is an extremely popular procedure for those 55 and older. At this point, there are multiple parts of the face that need rejuvenating.

Living with MS with Dee Dean Key Cell Discovery Could Speed Up Production of Cells in Lab

S

cientists have made a key discovery that could speed up the production of cells in the lab for studying diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Experts say it could also help to boost supplies of cells for use in drug discovery research and could eventually aid production of cells for use as therapies. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have pinpointed two molecules that boost reprogramming of cells – a process through which cells of one type can be converted to another. The molecules – called

SMAD2 and SMAD3 – can enhance the efficiency of converting mature cells into induced pluripotent stem cells, which have the distinctive ability to become any type of cell found in the body. The team at the University’s Medical Research Council Centre for Regenerative Medicine were surprised to find the molecules can also boost direct conversions from one type of mature cell to another – including transforming skin cells into brain cells. Usually, converting human skin cells to functional brain cells in a dish takes around 50 days. The team found that adding either of the two molecules into a dish with the

cells cuts the time taken to just 25 days. Scientists use cell reprogramming techniques to produce cells in the lab so that they can study diseases. Such cells are also used for drug discovery and for screening new medicines for potential toxic effects. The approach is particularly helpful for producing cells that cannot be obtained from patient samples, such as brain cells. Source: University of Edinburgh.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE The Promises of God

with Pastor Drew

G

Part XL

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled “The Promises of God”. As mentioned in part one of this series, there are but a few promises to all of mankind, the vast majority are to those who have become His children by adoption through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin. Some may think this is not “fair”, that all of God’s promises should be to everyone. Well they are to everyone that will repent of sin and turn to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin. Think of this way, you are a parent, your children have your protection; love; provision; sacrifice; and will inherit what you have at your departure. Should others who are not your children or even those who hate you and your children be beneficiaries of what you have for your own children? Of course not, that would be absurd! Another of God’s wonderful promises is that of “Reviving” His children. We find this promise many places in the Word of God, one such example is Psalm 138:7 “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shall stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.” The word “revive” in this verse comes from the Hebrew word that also has the meaning of: to bring to life again; to keep; nourish; repair; restore. There are any number of circumstances, situations, events that can and will present themselves in our lifetime that can cause us to be in need of reviving, repaired, restored, nourished: a broken relationship, loss of a loved one or one’s health, friends or family that may turn against you, consequences of sin (whether it be your own or someone else’s), coming under the hand of God’s discipline, and any number of other possibilities. Psalm 56:1-2 “Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresses me. Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.” Psalm 66:10-12 “For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. Thou brought us into the net; thou laid affliction upon our loins. Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou brought us out into a wealthy place.” King David experienced the need to be revived many times in his life, he had enemies from without and from within his family that attempted to take his life. He came under the strong hand of God because of his sin and unwillingness to own up to it, confess it to God and repent. Psalm 32:3-4 “When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer.” Do you see what caused David to be in need of being revived? It was his refusal to confess and repent of his sin. By God’s grace he did finally own up to his sin and repent and God was faithful to revive him. Psalm 32:1-2 & 5 “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputes not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgave the iniquity of my sin.” Whatever the cause may be that we find ourselves in need of being revived, if we turn to the Lord and entrust ourselves to Him, He will revive us. His Word is one of the major sources of bringing us to be revived. Psalm 119:47-50 “And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved. My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.”

Sophie’s Gallery Presents Wings & Snow: A World of Masks SAN DIEGO — St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center will present Wings & Snow: A World of Masks at Sophie’s Kensington Gallery located at 4168 Adams Avenue, San Diego, and Sophie’s El Cajon Gallery located at 109 Rea Avenue, El Cajon. The show will run from Dec. 2–30, with a public reception at the Kensington Gallery on Dec. 2 from 5 p.m.–8 p.m., and at the El Cajon Gallery on Dec. 8 from 5 p.m.–8 p.m. Wings & Snow celebrates the holiday season with a collection of masks in a variety of media including clay, fused glass, paint, mosaics, palm fronds and repurposed jewels. The show is inspired by Philip Colon, who painted at Sophie’s Gallery for many years. His passion for world cultures inspired colorful interpretations of masks from a variety of countries. When Philip’s family donated his personal collection of masks to Sophie’s Galleries, St. Madeleine’s artists transformed them with mosaics and paint. Other masks were formed with clay in our ceramics and fused glass departments. St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center serves more than 400 adults with developmental disabilities through nationally recognized, innovative programs. Its mission is to educate and empower individuals with developmental disabilities to realize their full potential. Developmental disabilities include autism, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other cognitive disorders for which there are no cures. Guest artists include Carol Minear, a local Kensington artist who uses palm fronds to create characters, and Maureen Robbins, an artist from Rochester, New York, who creates jeweled masks.
