RANCHO SAN DIEGO — Friends and family gathered at Nicky Rottons Bar and Burger Joint in Rancho San Diego, Monday, Apr. 13 for a celebratory send-off for El Cajon resident, Deanne Ross, who will be running in the Boston Marathon, Monday, Apr. 20. Ross is co-owner with her mother, Delores Fuller, of Act II. Together they operate the high-end re-sale boutique in La Mesa. Ross is an avid runner, and an aquathlete, who will be participating in her first Boston Marathon. The 119th Boston Marathon will mark the 30th consecutive year that the event will have John Hancock Financial as its principal sponsor. In cooperation with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the eight cities and towns along the Boston Marathon route, the B.A.A. has set the field size for the 2015 Boston Marathon at 30,000 official entrants. More than 80 percent of the field will be comprised of athletes who have met the qualifying standards.

Best Budget Idea? Releasing Sick, Elderly Convicts

Alpine Dance Academy Receives Senate Certificate of Recognition

Alpine Dance Academy Owner, Kellie Russell (middle) with business partner and best friends, Kari Calwell (left) representative from Senator Joel Anderson’s office, Alex Jones (right. By Alex Jones

For The East County Herald ALPINE — Alpine Dance Academy, formerly known as Diane’s School of Dance, has been serving families of the Alpine community for more than thirty years. It began in 1982 in the living room of “Miss Diane,” only to outgrow that location after eight years. Diane’s daughter, Kellie Russell is the current owner who followed in her mother’s footsteps

and has spent the last few years updating and expanding the studio to accommodate for the growing number of students and staff. The growth and success of Alpine Dance Academy is a testament to their commitment to helping people of all generations achieve their goals of improving their dance skills. Senator Anderson recognized the Alpine Dance Academy’s community involvement with a Senate Certificate of

Recognition and remarked, “The Alpine Dance Stars are a great example of the creativity and spirit of the community of Alpine.” Today, the Alpine Dance Academy has around 500 students enrolled and ten wonderful instructors. Quite a few of them grew up as dancers at the studio before becoming teachers, another example of the unique community spirit of Alpine that inspires us to give back to the home that we love.

ometimes it can take more than a decade for a completely sensible idea to catch on. So it is with what may be the single best money-saving idea in last year’s state budget, one that is just now beginning fully to take hold. The idea, part of a plan by Gov. Jerry Brown to appease a panel of federal judges demanding ever more releases of state prison inmates, calls for the possible parole of several hundred convicts who are chronically sick or mentally impaired, plus a new parole program that could affect thousands of the elderly, defined as over 60. It’s an idea first proposed to this column in 2002 by reader Ray Procunier, then a Grass Valley resident. Procunier, who died two years ago at age 86, was director of corrections in California under Gov. Ronald Reagan and during part of Brown’s first term in the 1970s. He also headed prison systems in Texas and Utah. “When Reagan was governor, we cut the prison population by one-third and there was no increase in crime, not even a blip,” he wrote 11 years ago, in response to a column. “I guarantee I could cut down today’s prison population by 100,000 or more and not hurt a soul in the process.” Among his chief suggestions was the wholesale parole of prisoners over age 55, regardless of the ThreeStrikes-and-You’re-Out law or their specific sentences. He would have kept murderers, rapists and other serious sex offenders behind bars unless they had major chronic illnesses. These tactics alone, Procunier said, would cut prison costs by more than $4 billion – equivalent to at least $5 billion in today’s dollars. Brown made something very similar a central point of his plan to comply with the federal court’s ruling on prison-overcrowding. The big question: What took so long for this idea to percolate to the top? The most likely answer is inertia, along with a fear component, as no politician ever wants to appear soft on crime. This proclivity helped produce Three-Strikes and to increase the state’s prison populace from about 25,000 in 1980 to 170,000-plus in 2008. It’s taken the court order to cut that down a bit. So far, as Procunier predicted, the early paroles have caused no significant statewide crime increase. As of mid-March, California had set loose 74 elderly convicts, with thousands more waiting their turn. Releasing the chronically ill will likely have a similar negligible impact on crime, although just 76 such paroles had so far been approved. This is true because national crime statistics show most violent crimes are committed by persons in their teens, 20s and 30s, and very few by persons aged 55 or above. At the same time, the cost of maintaining hospitalized inmates ranges between $68,000 and $125,000 per year apiece, depending on where they are treated. That’s significantly more than the average $47,000 annual cost for maintaining the typical healthy convict. So far, 15 other states acting on this kind of information have begun expediting releases of elderly prisoners, who can use pensions, savings, Social Security, welfare or the resources of relatives to cover their expenses outside custody. Most ill inmates released early can be covered almost immediately by Medi-Cal under Obamacare, while the state gains not only prison space, but also can stop posting two guards in each of their hospital rooms around the clock, as required for prisoners hospitalized outside the prison system. All this explains why the current Brown plan makes sense, both as a means of helping comply with the court order and saving many millions, perhaps billions, of prison dollars. Too bad Brown and other governors didn’t have the good sense to do this many years ago, after Procunier first suggested it.

. How important is exer-

cise when you are a senior? Is it worth the risks of hurting yourself ?

. All the current scientific evidence shows that geezers should exercise, even though many older people think it could harm them. Study after study demonstrates that seniors hurt their health a lot more by being sedentary. If you’re inactive, you deteriorate. Physical activity can help restore your capacity. Most older adults, regardless of age or condition, will benefit from increasing physical activity to a moderate level. Warning: If you want to begin a new exercise program, you should consult your physician and request a list of exercises that are best for your age and physical condition. Four types of exercise are important for your health. These are exercises for strength, balance, stretching and endurance. Strength exercises build muscle and raise your metabolism. Doing these exercises will help to keep your weight down. Balance exercises help prevent falls and, therefore, will keep you from breaking yourself and losing your independence. Each year, U.S. hospitals have 300,000 admissions for broken hips; many of them are the result of falls. Stretching exercises give you more freedom of movement. And endurance exercises raise your pulse and breathing. Here are 10 tips to make any exercise program safe: 1.) Don’t hold your breath during strength exercises. This could affect your blood pressure. 2.) When lifting weights, use smooth, steady movements. Breathe out as you lift or push a weight, and breathe in as you relax. 3.) Avoid jerking or thrusting movements. 4.) Avoid locking the joints of your arms and legs into a strained position. 5.) Some soreness and slight fatigue are normal after musclebuilding exercises. Exhaustion, sore joints, and painful muscle pulls are not normal. 6.) Always warm up before stretching exercises. 7.) Stretching should never cause pain, especially joint pain. 8.) Never bounce into a stretch; make slow steady movements instead. 9.) To prevent injuries, use safety equipment such as helmets for biking. 10.) You should be able to talk during endurance exercises. Measuring your progress can motivate you. Test yourself before starting to exercise to get a baseline score. Test and record your scores each month. The following are some tests you can use, if your doctor approves. • For endurance, see how far you can walk in exactly six minutes. • For lower-body strength, time yourself as you walk up a flight of stairs as fast as you can safely. • For upper-body strength, record how much weight you lift and how many times you lift that weight. • For balance, time yourself as you stand on one foot, without support, for as long as possible. Have someone stand near you in case you lose your balance. Repeat the test while standing on the other foot. Remember, above all, exercise should make you feel better.

Experimental Drug May Repair Nerve Damage in Multiple Sclerosis

new study suggests that an investigational drug for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) may repair myelin, the fatty material that protects nerves and is damaged in MS, according to a study released Tuesday, Apr. 14, that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 67th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, April 18 to 25. “This study, for the first time, provides biological evidence of repair of damaged myelin in the human brain, and advances the field of neuro-reparative therapies,” said study lead author Diego Cadavid, MD, with Biogen in Cambridge, Mass., and a fellow with the American Academy of Neurology. The Phase II study involved 82 people who had their first incident of acute optic neuritis, a disease that typically affects one eye and is characterized by inflammation, damage to the nerve fibers and loss of myelin within the optic nerve. It is estimated that about half of people with optic neuritis will later develop Multiple Sclerosis. All participants were treated with high dose steroids and then randomly selected with equal probability to receive either the experimental anti-

body, called anti-LINGO-1, or a placebo once every four weeks, for a total of six doses. Participants were then assessed every four weeks for six months and a final visit at eight months. The drug’s effectiveness in repairing myelin was evaluated by comparing the recovery of the optic nerve latency in the damaged eye at six and eight months to the normal unaffected eye at the start of the study. The main finding of the study focused on the latency of the visual evoked potential (VEP), a test that measures the visual system’s ability to conduct electrical signals between the retina and the brain. The results showed that people treated with the experimental drug and who did not miss more than one dose (per protocol population) had significantly improved conduction as measured by latency recovery compared to people who received the placebo. At six months, those who received the drug improved on average by 7.55 milliseconds, or 34 percent, compared to placebo. The effect continued to eight months with an average improvement of 9.13 milliseconds or 41 percent over placebo. In addition, the percentage of subjects whose VEP latency in the affected eye recovered to normal or nearly normal

ddean@echerald.com (within 10 percent of the normal eye) more than doubled, from 26 percent on placebo to 53 percent on the drug. A substudy using an exploratory method of measuring latency called multifocal VEP revealed similar treatment effects. “More studies are needed to evaluate whether these changes lead to clinical improvement,” said Cadavid. A second study of antiLINGO-1 in people with MS is ongoing. Source: American Academy of Neurology (AAN)

Dying in a Home May Create a Disclosure

California Civil Code talks about a seller’s duty to dis-

close any death on the property under the past three years unless it was AIDS (considered possibly discriminatory). This is where you need a professional REALTOR® to guide you through this disclosure process. Must a seller disclose a death after three years? Professional brokers advise disclosing anything that may affect the value of your home. Some buyers are superstitious and might not purchase a home where someone has passed away on the property no matter when it was. A death in the home at any time may constitute undesirability to a portion of the buying public.

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah with Jeff Campbell

Grandpa Died in Our House

n the spirit of respect, it is sad and tragic anytime we experience an untimely passing. When we do not expect someone leaving us, it is a sorrowful experience. When a person passes in the comfort of their own home, they have a greater chance of “going peacefully.” Many hope to live out there days not in a hospital but in their familiar surroundings; their residence.

Wisdom for

Our real estate team always looks for ways to see the positive whenever possible. If grandpa was elderly and passed away in the home, one would say that he lived a long life. One could say that the home brings good fortune through long life.

PART II

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series which is entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” Over the past 2,000 years there have been many writings, books, messages, 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. I remind you of what we looked at last time concerning Jesus: He has not changed and never will. Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” And as Hebrews 1:1-4 tells us that, Jesus is the express image of God, Hebrews 1:1-4; as well as what Jesus told Philip in John 14:7-10 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him… He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” Because He is Who He says He is, He never changes; the work He did 2,000 years ago, He has continued to do it through those who are surrendered to Him, offering themselves as vessels fit for the Master’s use. This brings great hope to us today as we live in a dark and hopeless world. I remind you of this because there are many today that would have you believe that Jesus is not who He says He is; that is not the same today and forever. Now let us look at what happened the same day that Jesus called Peter, Andrew, James, and John to follow Him. Mark 1:20-34, “And immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after Him. Then they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and taught. And they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are--the Holy One of God!” But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him. Then they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” And immediately His fame spread throughout all the region around Galilee. Now as soon as they had come out of the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once. So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them. Now at evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. And the whole city was gathered together at the door. Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.” Here we read of numerous astounding events that occurred in just one day in the life of Jesus. It is no wonder that John wrote in John 21:25 “And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.” The first of these was His teaching, for He taught as one that had authority. The religious teachers of Jesus’ day were famous for quoting one rabbi after another, they had departed from teaching the Word of God and in its place were teaching the doctrines and precepts of men and their traditions. There is no power to do anything for anyone in these, only is there power in the Word of God to change a man or woman and give them hope for life. Over the next number of weeks we will examine some of these teachings, I encourage you to read one of Jesus’ teaching known as the ‘Sermon on the Mount’, found in found in Matthew 5-7.

Vintage Cameras at Alpine Historical Society Open House

ALPINE — Our April 25 & 26 Open House at the DeWitt Museum of the Alpine Historical Society will feature a new exhibit of “Vintage Cameras’’ from the collection of Fred Bray. In 1984 Fred and his brother Arthur moved to Alpine, but their interest in vintage cameras dates back to 1968 when Arthur purchased his first Stereo Realist camera. Our exhibit features cameras from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s and includes view cameras, portrait cameras, and wooden field cameras. Unlike today’s digital cameras, these cameras primarily used photographic plates that required long exposure times. Many of the historical photographs on exhibit in our museum were made on cameras such as these. Our exhibit will also include a historical glimpse at the life and works of Clarence Stearns, who would have used cameras such as these. Stearns was a highly acclaimed and well-travelled photographer in the early 1900’s who lived in Alpine on Zumbrota Road for10 years beginning in 1952. The Open House on Saturday, April 25th and Sunday, April 26th is open from 2:00 pm to 4:00pm. Contact Carol Morrison at 619-445-2544 or info@alpinehistory.org for more information. Free Admission.

EL CAJON — A big rain – of golf balls, not raindrops -- is anticipated for the May 1 Brad Daluiso Golf Classic at the Sycuan Golf & Tennis Resort, an annual fundraiser hosted by the former NFL kicker for the Grossmont College athletic program. Hundreds of golf balls will be falling from above at 4 p.m. as balls purchased by supporters are dropped from a helicopter hovering about 50 feet in the air. The lucky winner whose numbered ball lands in or closest to the hole – in this case, hole No. 1 at Willow Glen Golf Course -- gets a $1,000 prize. And you don’t have to play in the tourney or be present to win – just purchase $10 for one ball, $20 for five, $100 for 40 or $250 for 120. You can obtain the purchase form at www.foundation.gcccd.edu/bdgc .The deadline for purchasing the balls is April 29. Cash, credit cards and checks will be accepted for ball purchases at the tournament until 3 p.m. The golf classic, now in its 12th year, draws about 120 golfers annually and has raised more than $200,000 for Grossmont College Athletics and Exercise Science and Wellness programs. The event is sponsored by the Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges, the nonprofit organization that supports students, faculty and staff at both colleges through scholarships and educational equipment, supplies and programs. Daluiso played football at Grossmont College until he graduated in 1988, and then went on to UCLA for two years before beginning his 10-year National Football League career. He played for the Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos and his last eight years for the New York Giants. He retired in 2000 as the Giants’ all-time most accurate kicker and the second-all-time leading scorer in the team’s history. For more information about the golf classic and ball drop, contact Heather.cavazos@gcccd.edu or call the foundation at (619) 644-7357.

SDSUwithBEAT Paul’swithWorld S. Buska - Trying to fit in with disabilities Steve Dolan Recovery update

My recovery’s coming along great – I’m walking!” The walking is still a work in progress, but Paul’s been walking in the house with his walker. Amanda, his therapist, is there to steady him if needed and I trail behind with the wheelchair in case he needs to take a break. Next week he walks outside and in the meantime, he practices his walking with his sister and me. Although Paul still needs assistance for almost everything, the good news is, the level of assistance is so much less than it was when he came home from rehab. To get in and out of bed he’s come from “awkward cross-your-fingers transferring with mom doing most of the work” followed by strenuous positioning by Paul once in bed, to one smooth motion from wheelchair to the correct position in bed. Going to the bathroom – a more than daily occurrence! – has become an easy “get him there and wait while he does what he has to do.” He does his own shaving and his sister Christy helps him bathe and shampoo. Getting dressed is a “mom thing” because with the restriction of the neck brace, Paul can’t look down to put on his socks and pants. He does put his shirt on. The neck brace has to stay until Paul is getting around easily without assistance. I’m sure it doesn’t sound like

normal to you, but to us it’s like home-free. The biggest reason is Paul’s spirit. For so long he was worried and afraid he’d never get to walking. The “down-est” moment was three weeks ago. He’d been worrying all day about the plates coming loose, about needing another surgery, about never being able to walk… By evening he was short of breath and complaining of chest pains. His legs shook uncontrollably; his muscles were spasming painfully. I could tell anxiety was overtaking him. As I watched and tried to determine exactly what was going on, I had a touch of acid reflux myself. Aha! A sign! Paul’s taking meds for exactly that. Confirming my suspicions, he was burping and belching, so after telling him to breathe deeply to calm him down, I explained about acid reflux and chest pain and told him the shortness of breath was because he was hyperventilating. I gave him several glasses of water to relieve the acid reflux and continued to have him take deep breaths. Finally he calmed down enough to get some rest. The next day we called his doctor. Great doctor! He knows Paul so well. He doubled the dose of Paul’s medication for anxiety, saying it obviously wasn’t doing what it was supposed to do. Since Paul’s current dosage was very minimal, doubling it only brought it to the normal dosage. To all of

C

our relief, that took care of that. Paul has been himself ever since - happy, teasing, optimistic about the future and not afraid to express his concerns when he has them. After two months of waking five or six times during the night to go to the bathroom or relieve his spasming leg muscles or just needing to talk, last night he slept from eleven to seven. And three nights before he had slept from eleven to five. The night in between was interrupted by nightmares so we’re not counting that one. The spasms have all but disappeared and when they do show up, it’s with a much milder jerk. Paul’s home therapist, Amanda, showed him how to handle spasms with relaxation and leg positioning. Paul’s on his way! He believes in his future ability to walk and swim and go to Starbucks and go on road trips. “It’s okay if it takes a while. God told me I’d walk – in due time,” he says.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s San Diegobased Pacific South Coast Chapter will present two 2015 San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS events over the next two weekends in April. The two 2015 Walk MS events in San Diego, to be held on Sunday, April 19 and Saturday, April 25, will raise donations to benefit research and programs and services for people with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. The first San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS will be held on Sunday morning, April 19 at the Legoland California Resort in Carlsbad. About 3,500 people are expected to walk either a 1.5-mile or 2.5-mile route through Legoland. Check-in begins at 6:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 7:30 a.m. Legoland will be open only to Walk MS walkers during the fundraiser. At the conclusion of Walk MS, Legoland will open at its regularly scheduled time of 10 a.m., and all walkers will be invited to re-enter the theme park at a discounted admission price. A second San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS will be held on Saturday morning, April 25, at NTC Park at Liberty Station in San Diego’s Point Loma. More than 4,000 people are expected to walk a threemile route along San Diego Bay. Check-in begins at 7 a.m. and the walk begins at 8 a.m. Each Walk MS event is expected to raise about $575,000 in donations for a combined total of more than $1 million. Admission is free to attend both Walk MS events. There is no cost to be a walker. Registration information is available at www.MSWalk.com. Walkers are encouraged to solicit sponsors to raise donations. Walkers have the opportunity to earn prizes, including t-shirts, movie tickets and gift cards, based on the amount of donations they collect.

SDSU Offers Business of Wine Courses

alifornia reached $1.49 billion in winery revenues in 2014, a 64% increase from five years ago, according to The Wine Institute. San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies offers a Professional Certificate in the Business of Wine that is designed to prepare students for occupations in this booming industry. “Taking the (Business of Wine) classes gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed to realize that I could have my own wine business sometime in the future,” said Sandy Hanshaw, owner of The Wine Pub in San Diego. “About a year after I completed the certificate program, I was laid off from my career in hotel sales. It was at this time that I made the change and opened up The Wine Pub. The certificate program was a definite stepping stone to its success.” The comprehensive Business of Wine courses are geared for professionals and entrepreneurs in the wine, food, and hospitality fields who want to quickly expand their knowledge of industry topics. The certificate is directed to: restaurant owners and staff, winery employees, event planners, distribution and retail sales employees, wine bar owners and staff; plus anyone interested in moving into wine or hospitality careers, and wine enthusiasts who desire a professional-level education. “Anyone interested in moving

forward in the restaurant industry or even just for personal enrichment will gain valuable lessons and knowledge from The Business of Wine program,” said former student Ben Probe, a bartender/server. “I couldn’t even say Pinot Noir the correct way when I started. Now I’m able to recognize what it tastes like in a blind tasting and even narrow down what part of the world it came from and how old it is.” For more information, email eyousif@mail.sdsu.edu, visit neverstoplearning.net/wine, or call (619) 594-1138. SDSU’s College of Extended Studies reaches out to San Diego, the nation, and the world with a wide variety of lifelong learning opportunities, and more than 50 certificate programs for career advancement. Topics range from contract management, construction, and craft beer, to grant writing, marketing, and human resources. And many programs are available online.

“THE CLOCK IS TICKING ON

SOLAR’S SWEET DEAL.” Dear San Diego Homeowner, We want you to have the best current solar information so you can make a wise investment. In that spirit, there are two big changes for solar happening in the near future that you should know about. Taken together, they argue for moving forward SOON – in the next 6 months. If you’ve been putting off the purchase of a solar energy system until a “better time” – please note: the best time to go solar has now arrived!

Net Metering Law

THE CHANGES

Current California rules about “net metering” — which allow solar customers to zero out their power bills, guaranteed for the next 20 years — will be changing in the next year or two. The present favorable rules will apply until solar reaches 5% penetration in SDG&E territory. With the popularity of solar still growing, that deadline could be reached as early as December 2015, according to some industry experts. After that, who knows what will take its place?

Federal Income Tax Credit The very generous solar income tax credit — which allows the federal government to pay for 30% of the solar energy system cost — is set to expire at the end of next year (2016). That amounts to a 30% price increase on new solar after that date.

WHAT ALL THIS MEANS FOR HOMEOWNERS Homeowners who move forward in the next six months are guaranteed the best deals: • Greatest savings compared to the power company • Lowest prices on solar hardware — costs on materials and labor will increase • Fastest delivery times for installation — installation backlogs will happen • 30% solar tax credit guaranteed • 20-year guarantee to zero-out your power bills with solar
