22nd Annual Christmas Parade of Lights & Snow Festival Draws Larger Crowd ALPINE — That cheerful message was shouted often during the “22nd Annual Alpine Village Christmas Parade of Lights & Snow Festival” on Dec. 1 in Alpine. Presented each year by the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce, many spectators and participants declared that the combined nighttime event was bigger and better than ever. At the free Snow Festival in nearby Alpine Creek Town Center at 1347 Tavern Road, free snow sledding, more than 35 vendors --- each with a different booth, entertainment and children’s activities kept crowds busy. One of the few night Christmas parades left in San Diego County, the foothills holiday celebration draws families and others from throughout the region. The Alpine Creek Town Center, Brixton Capital, Viejas Enterprises, San Diego Gas & Electric, United Rentals, EDCO Disposal Services, Bullseye Feed, Village Carpets/Flooring America, East County Transitional Living Center and RTL Traffic Control & Equipment Rental sponsored the family fun.

LAKESIDE — The rank of Eagle, in the Boy Scouts of America, is the highest possible rank a Scout can earn. The requirements are challenging, rigorous, and take years to complete. Many boys become Boy Scouts, but only as few as about five percent can call themselves Eagle, according to the National Eagle Scout Association. Two new young men from Lakeside got the chance to call themselves Eagles at their awarding ceremony, the Eagle Scout Court of Honor. Scouts Timothy Paule and Joshua Long were honored by troop 45 at the Lakeside Rodeo Arena, Sunday, Dec. 3. Although the road to Eagle is full of memorable moments, like attending the Robotics World Championships, hiking at Philmont Scout Ranch, and even flying out to the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan, the final hurdle between a Scout and his Eagle rank is the Eagle Scout Project. “I came up with the idea of building a STEAM lab for Cajon Park School because of my interest in science” said Paule, who hopes to earn his bachelor’s degree in physics one day. Joshua Long, who wishes to pursue a career in medicine, worked with the Master Gardener from Cajon Park Elementary to create a new garden for the K-8 school. Both scouts had to fundraise extensively to buy their own materials for their respective projects. The ceremony was no doubt a proud day for the friends and family of Timothy Paule and Joshua Long. “I believe that scouting helps young men develop better decision making skills,” says Jeff Long, Joshua’s father. Whereas Shelly Paule, Timothy’s mother, and former Scoutmaster and Troop mentor Steve Saxer both agree that as Eagle Scouts, the boys help encourage others to follow in their footsteps through the examples that they’ve set by their community service projects. Their efforts were noticed by California State Senator Joel Anderson. “It’s wonderful to know that we have outstanding young people in our communities who are encouraging younger children by increasing their educational opportunities.” said Anderson, in regards to the scout’s accomplishments. Both Timothy Paule and Joshua Long were recognized with State certificates of recognition presented on behalf of Anderson.

No Punishment for Corruption Under Brown

Bipartison Education Bill Introduced to Provide Increased Information on Callege Costs WASHINGTON, D.C. — Recently, U.S. Representatives Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), André Carson (D-IN), and Scott Peters (D-CA) introduced the Student Right to Know Before You Go Act of 2017, a bipartisan bill providing greater transparency in the cost of higher education. U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Mark Warner (D-VA) introduced companion legislation in the U.S. Senate at the same time. “One of the biggest decisions in a young person’s life is deciding where to go to college,” said Representative Hunter. “While this is an exciting time, it can also be stressful. Unfortunately, the cost of higher education has increased exponentially in recent years, with little sign of slowing down. It is critical that students and their parents are provided with as much information as possible allowing them to make the best decisions for their family. Students should be able to easily access information from universities regarding earnings data for graduates, graduation rates for nontraditional students, transfer rates, frequency with which graduates go on to pursue higher levels of education, and debt levels. This bill provides these

important informational tools.” The Student Right to Know Before You Go Act of 2017 establishes new metrics to be published by the Department of Education to focus on data that provides future students and their families with information post-graduation average annual earnings, rate/ amount of federal loan debt, rates of remedial enrollment, credit accumulation, and graduation rates among other data sets. Specifically, the legislation will: • Empower students and families with the tools needed for a more complete picture of the value of their education; • Make accurate, easy to understand data available online for prospective students and their families; • Authorize the release of information that currently exists, but not currently accessible; • Match student records with employment and earnings data; • Ensure results will be highly accurate and informative. A critical provision of the legislation is the requirement for the use of secure multi-party computation (MPC), an advanced encryption technique, to generate statistical data based on student information from col-

Congressman Duncan D. Hunter leges and universities as well as loan and income information from government agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Department of Education. The process ensures the protection of the underlying data, so no entity is forced to “give up” sensitive information in a form that is accessible to others.

Hunter, R-Alpine, is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He is the first Marine combat veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to be elected to Congress. He represents California’s 50th Congressional District consisting of East and Northern County San Diego.

n the day Gov. Jerry Brown returned to his office after 12 days wandering around Europe preaching the ills of climate change and the current United States response to it, a Los Angeles judge unsealed the latest evidence of corruption among his appointees here at home. The key revelation in documents made public after more than a year of secrecy once again spotlights the California Public Utilities Commission – made up primarily of trusted former Brown aides. Other problem areas also festered during Brown’s absence. The documents show the PUC asked the Legislature for $6.045 million in early 2016 to pay private lawyers for allegedly helping it comply with subpoenas and search warrants in the state attorney general’s ongoing criminal investigation of a highly questionable settlement that now sees consumers paying about 70 percent of the cost for shutting down the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. The new money comes atop $5.2 million in public money the commissioners paid their lawyers since 2015. That essence of the San Onofre settlement was reached during a secret meeting between leaders of the PUC and the Southern California Edison Co. in a luxury hotel in Warsaw, Poland almost half a decade ago. Under pressure, the PUC has reopened its decision on that agreement, which precluded public hearings that might have spotlighted Edison’s key role in causing the plant’s shutdown. The documents demonstrate that once the PUC got its new funds, the private law firm it hired fought the investigation, rather than cooperating with it, as the PUC had promised. Among other things, those private lawyers questioned the validity of a key search warrant and tried to assert the Warsaw meeting was legal – even though the commission had already fined Edison for not formally reporting it. (Irony: The commission was in on the meeting, but fined other participants for not reporting. Meanwhile commissioners neither reported the meeting to the public nor fined their own participant.) Said San Diego consumer lawyer Maria Severson, one of two attorneys who won release of the long-hidden documents, “There were sufficient facts in the (subpoenas) to lead to a strong suspicion of guilt,…nonfeasance and even malfeasance (and) probable cause (to believe) that they conspired to obstruct justice or the administration of the laws.” Brown said nothing about the released documents, and has refused comment repeatedly about dubious PUC moves. He has yet to criticize any of his commission appointees, while they refuse repeated requests to furnish a legal justification for use of public funds to defend commissioners in a criminal investigation. Meanwhile, the PUC issued a written statement insisting it “has cooperated with the attorney general’s office though every step of the investigation.” That’s not what the judge, William C. Ryan, concluded when he wrote that “The PUC has withheld hundreds of documents, claiming…privilege.” State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, whose house okayed the funding, added in an email that “I believe the PUC can expect vigorous examination (from lawmakers).” As this went on, Brown also was mute about admitted interference by aides to University of California President Janet Napolitano with an audit of UC. While state auditor Elaine Howell asked UC regents to consider disciplining those who interfered with the audit, Brown said nothing, even though he has been an ex-officio regent for many years. It’s hard to believe Napolitano didn’t know what her aides were up to. When football or basketball coaches’ assistants break rules, the head coach is usually fired. Why not Napolitano? Nor did Brown punish Energy Commission members for handing out tens of millions of gasoline tax dollars to a company headed by a former academic who advised that commission’s staff on how to evaluate grant applications for hydrogen highway funds, then quit his university job and three months later filed a multimillion-dollar grant application that was accepted. Instead of firing or disciplining the commission chairman who enabled this obvious conflict of interest, Brown reappointed him. The time is long gone when Brown could plausibly deny knowing of the corruption among his appointees or others in whose choice he had a hand, like Napolitano. It’s all part of a pattern of not merely corruption, but complete unaccountability in Brown’s administration, where top appointees usually continue in prestigious, powerful jobs no matter what misdeeds they do or okay.

What is the leading cause of brain injuries?

.

About 1.4 million people suffer a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each year in the United States. Half of all TBIs are caused by accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. These accidents are the major cause of TBI in people under age 75. Falls cause the majority of TBIs in people 75 and older; this group has the highest rates of TBI-related hospitalizations and death. [A note to older people who suffer a blow to the head: If you are taking a blood thinner such as Coumadin, get immediate attention from a healthcare provider to check for internal bleeding.] Symptoms of a serious head injury may include: headaches, vomiting, nausea, sleepiness, convulsions, dilated pupils, slurred speech, weakness or numbness in the arms or legs, loss of coordination, confusion, agitation, bloody or clear fluids emanating from ears or nose, blurred vision or seeing double, dizziness, respiratory failure, paralysis, slow pulse, ringing in the ears, inappropriate emotional responses, and loss of bowel or bladder control. Anyone with signs of moderate or severe TBI should receive medical attention as soon as possible. Because little can be done to reverse the initial brain damage caused by trauma, medical personnel try to stabilize an individual with TBI and focus on preventing further injury.

QA .

How much love-making is going on among seniors?

. A recent survey of 3,005 U.S. adults between 57 and 85 published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that there’s a lot of love after the bloom. Here’s a breakdown of those reporting that they were sexually active: • 73 percent between the ages of 57 and 64 • 53 percent between the ages of 65 and 74 • 26 percent between the ages of 75 and 85 But, hey, the sex wasn’t always easy. Half of the survey respondents reported at least one problem. The leading obstacle for women was low sexual desire (43 percent). The top problem for men was erectile dysfunction (37 percent). But there’s more. As a woman ages, her vagina becomes thinner, less flexible and drier, so intercourse can be painful. Older men suffer from reduced libido, too. Both men and women can have trouble climaxing. Fortunately for seniors today there is better sex through chemistry. Men can treat their erection problems with drugs such as Viagra, Levitra and Cialis. Women can make sex more comfortable with over-the-counter lubricants, vaginal inserts and hormone supplements.

QA

. Can you get cancer from eating fish that contains mercury?

.

High levels of mercury exposure can harm the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and immune system of people of all ages. There isn’t enough human data available for all forms of mercury to conclude that it causes cancer. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that methylmercury is a possible human carcinogen. Mercury, a liquid metal also known as quicksilver, combines with carbon to make organic mercury compounds; methylmercury is the most common one. Methylmercury is made primarily by microscopic organisms in water and soil. Methylmercury builds up in the tissues of fish. Larger and older fish tend to have the highest levels of mercury. Research shows that most people’s fish consumption does not cause a health concern. Contact your local health department to check local advisories about the safety of fish caught in nearby waters.

Living with MS with Dee Dean Healthy Eating May Result in Reduced Disability in MS

E

ating a healthful diet comprising fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may be linked with reduced disability and fewer Multiple Sclerosis (MS) symptoms among people with the condition, according to a new study published in Neurology. Researchers say that a healthful diet may help to improve symptoms and disability for people with MS. Back in July, Medical News Today examined the , developed in the 1950s as a treatment for people with (MS). Proponents of the Swank diet believe that it can reduce the frequency of flare-ups and lessen the severity of symptoms related to the disease. But the National Multiple Sclerosis Society that there is not currently enough evidence to recommend any one diet as best for people with MS. One of the authors of the study, Kathryn C. Fitzgerald — who works in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD — acknowledges that there is a lack of evidence on the potential influence that diet may have on MS symptoms. “People with MS often ask if there is anything they can do to delay or avoid disability,” explains Fitzgerald, “and many people want to know if their diet can play a role, but there have been few studies investigating this.”

Severe disability reduced by 20 percent

To examine the role that diet may play in MS, Fitzgerald’s team looked at

questionnaires completed by 6,989 people with MS as part of the North American Research Committee registry. As well as providing information regarding their lifestyle, weight, physical activity, and whether or not they smoke, the participants were asked whether or not they had had a relapse of MS symptoms in the past six months. The participants also reported their level of disability and how severe their symptoms were for pain and mobility. Participants in the group that was considered to have the best diet ate an average of 1.7 servings of whole grains and 3.3 servings of fruits, vegetables, and legumes per day. The participants in the group that was considered to have the worst diet ate an average of 0.3 servings of whole grains and 1.7 servings of fruits, vegetables, and legumes per day. After adjusting the results for confounding factors — such as age and how long the participants have had MS — the team found that people in the group with the most healthful diet were 20 percent less likely to have more severe physical disability than people in the group with the least healthful diet. The new study also reports that “people with an overall healthy lifestyle were nearly 50 percent less likely to have depression, 30 percent less likely to have severe fatigue, and more than 40 percent less likely to

ddean@echerald.com

have pain than people who did not have a healthy lifestyle.” “While this study does not determine whether a healthy lifestyle reduces MS symptoms or whether having severe symptoms makes it harder for people to engage in a healthy lifestyle, it provides evidence for the link between the two,” concludes Fitzgerald. However, the participants in this study were mostly older white people who had been diagnosed with MS for an average of 20 years. This means that although people with all types of MS were included in the study, the findings might not apply to everyone who has the disease. The authors confirm that another limitation of the study is that its design does not provide an insight into whether healthful diets influence MS symptoms in the future.

The Promises of God Part XXXV

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! As we are entering the Christmas season, the time which much of the world acknowledges the Advent of Christ (the first coming of Christ into the world) I thought it only appropriate as we have been looking at the Promises of God we spend the next few weeks considering the greatest of all the promises of God, the giving of His only Son. It seems strange that we need to be reminded of the greatest event in all of history but we do as we can easily get distracted by the world’s version of Christmas with all its trappings and snares. Last week, we looked at some of the over 300 Old Testament prophesies that were given concerning Jesus’ Advent, now let us look at some of the events that led up to that glorious event. Luke 1:5-38 “In the days of Herod, the king of Judea, there was a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abijah. And his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth… And they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren. And both were advanced in their days. And it happened in his serving in the order of his course, before God, according to the custom of the priests, it was his lot to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord… And an angel of the Lord appeared to him as he was standing on the right of the altar of incense. And seeing this, Zacharias was troubled, and fear fell on him. But the angel said to him, Do not fear, Zacharias. For your prayer is heard, and your wife Elizabeth shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. And you shall have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall neither drink wine nor strong drink. And he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. And he shall turn many of the sons of Israel to the Lord their God. And he shall go before Him (Jesus) in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. And Zacharias said to the angel, By what shall I know this? For I am old, and my wife is advanced in her days. And answering, the angel said to him, I am Gabriel, who stands before God. And I am sent to speak to you and to show you these glad tidings. And behold, you shall be silent and not able to speak until the day that these things shall be performed, because you did not believe my words which shall be fulfilled in their time… And after those days his wife Elizabeth conceived and hid herself five months, saying, So the Lord has dealt with me in the days in which He looked on me, to take away my reproach among men. And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in to her and said, Hail, one receiving grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what kind of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, Do not fear, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold! You shall conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call His name JESUS. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest. And the Lord God shall give Him the throne of His father David. And He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end. Then Mary said to the angel, How shall this be, since I do not know a man? And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit shall come on you, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you. Therefore also that Holy One which will be born of you shall be called Son of God. And behold, your cousin Elizabeth also conceived a son in her old age. And this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the servant of the Lord. Let it be to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her.”

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 Now to Dec. 30. 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.

Michigan State finished the regular season 9-3 (and 7-2 in the Big Ten). The Spartans notched victories against top 10-ranked teams Michigan and Penn State. The team is led by 11th year head coach Mark Dantonio. The Spartans will be making their first appearance in the SDCCU Holiday Bowl.

Washington State completed the regular season 9-3 (and 6-3 in the Pac-12). Their victories against nationally ranked teams included USC and Stanford. Cougars head coach Mike Leach is now in his sixth year leading the program. This year will mark Washington State’s fourth time competing in the SDCCU Holiday Bowl, where its record is 1-2. The Cougars lost to Minnesota 17-12 in 2016. Washington State beat Texas 28-20 in 2003, and lost to BYU 38-36 in 1981. The program’s overall bowl game record is 7-6. The game will feature one of the nation’s top passing offenses in Washington State, against a stout Michigan State defense. Led by quarterback Luke Falk, the Cougars passed for 4,497 yards in 2017 (averaging 374 yards per game), along with 35 touchdowns. The Spartan defense held opponents to 196 passing yards per game in 2017, and tallied 28 sacks and 13 interceptions (including five by safety David Dowell).

Survey: Nearly half prefer in-store shopping over online

A recent Harris Poll survey said nearly half of shoppers prefer shopping in-store rather than online. The survey, conducted on behalf of Coldwell Banker Commercial Affiliates, said that 45 percent of those surveyed prefer a brick-and-mortar store, while 35 percent said selfserve kiosks and checkouts improve their shopping experience. In addition, more than 40 percent of those surveyed said supporting local small businesses was important, with 45 percent of Baby Boomers agreeing, 37 percent of Gen Xers and 38 percent of millennials. Of all age groups, millennials are most likely to prefer shopping in person at smaller boutiques or shops instead of shopping at large department stores, including 27 percent compared to 17 percent of Gen Xers and 16 percent of Baby Boomers.

Bill Garrett selected for 11th year as Governing Board president EL CAJON – For the 11th year in a row, Bill Garrett was selected Tuesday night as president of the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District Governing Board. Board member Edwin Hiel was elected vice president, and board member Debbie Justeson was selected to serve as clerk of the board. Garrett, a retired El Cajon city manager, has served on the Governing Board since 2004. He was initially appointed to fill a vacant seat, then was re-elected three times by East County voters. Garrett’s wife, Judy, Garrett served on the foundation boards for both colleges beginning in 2007, and when the Foundation for Grossmont & Cuyamaca Colleges was formed in 2011, she served for three years as its president. Garrett said he has seen many changes at the colleges in his time on the board, from the physical transformation of the campuses as the result of bond-funded construction to the increased focus on student success and equity that ensures more students reach their educational goals, in addition to the partnership with the Grossmont Union High School District through the East County Education Alliance. “Our Governing Board members wholeheartedly support our district’s mission of transforming lives through education,” Garrett said. “I’m honored to be a member of this Governing Board and to be a part of this district.” The Governing Board will be holding its regular meetings in 2018 on the third Tuesday of each month, with the exception of September, November and December, when meetings will take place on the second Tuesday of each month. The board meets at Grossmont College’s Griffin Gate in evennumbered months and at the student center at Cuyamaca College in alternate months.
