East County Resident Wins Small Business Person of The Year WASHINGTON – Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, has announced this year’s Small Business Person of the Year winners from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. A panel is currently reviewing all the packages and a national winner and two runners-up will be selected and announced at a future date. The national winner will be recognized as the 2015 National Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration this year in Washington, D.C., May 8. Each year since 1963, the President has issued a proclamation calling for the celebration of National Small Business Week. This year National Small Business Week will be recognized from May 4-8 with national events planned in Miami, Los Angeles, San Antonio, New York and Washington, D.C.

CA Small Business Person of the Year

Brian L. Milholland, President, Milholland Electric, Inc. of El Cajon was named California’s Small Business Person of the Year by the SBA. Brian Milholland began his electrician’s career while serving his country in the U.S. Army in 1984. There he was trained as a helicopter electrician and served in that military occupation for three years. While stationed as a paratrooper at Fort Bragg North Carolina, Brian studied residential and commercial wiring. Brian received the U.S. Army Good Conduct Medal as well as parachutist and Sharpshooter Badges. After leaving the army in 1987, Brian worked for a general contractor for two years. He acquired his California Electrical Contractors license and opened a small home based business in 1990. Brian’s business did well in the 90’s with construction on the rise. However, as the economy started to become volatile in 2007, all construction came to a halt jeopardizing the business. Brian successfully navigated Milholland Electric through turmoil, by quickly repurposing the company and its assets; to not only survive, but to grow its revenue and workforce by over 300%, taking the expertise in electrical contracting and applying it to the burgeoning solar industry. Milholland Electric has, year after year, shown consistent growth, as a result of being customers centric and environmentally responsible. He maintained his responsibilities and commitment to both employees and his customers. As Milholland has grown they have moved into progressively larger buildings over the

Brian L. Milholland, President, Milholland Electric, Inc. of El Cajon years. The business continued to grow in 2014 prompting Brian to initiate an SBA 504 loan for $717,000, through Chase Bank, to purchase an office condominium in El Cajon, CA, with over 6,200 square feet. The purchase included a larger warehouse and more functional, employee friendly office space. In September of 2014, Milholland Electric relocated all San Diego assets to its new main office in El Cajon. Milholland currently has a staff of 48 full-time workers. In addition to running his business, Brian Milholland appears regularly on the Home Pro Show radio and TV programs offering tips, news and information to assist the public in understanding how solar works and clearing up many misconceptions that have plagued the solar industry. Milholland Electric is also a member and supporter of CALSEIA, the nation’s oldest state-based solar energy association; has partnered with Sungevity and Citizens Energy, a nonprofit organization, to bring solar power to low income families; donated several thousand dollars to the East County Magazine to purchase updated secure website software that better protects, companies, readers and subscribers information and data; and has provided support to and hired several employees from the Not for Profit “Grid Alternatives Program,” a flagship program, providing solar power for low-income families across the United States while providing volunteers and job trainees with hands-on solar installation experience. Brian Milholland is a prime example of a business owner who re-invented his business to cope with industry changes to keep his business afloat and create new growth within his company. His efforts have paid off and he continues to look for ways to improve and grow his business.

For The East County Herald In the last five years, Traveling Stories has gone from a few volunteers reading to children in love with books to empowering youth all over San Diego and other parts of the world! Traveling Stories is a non-profit organization based here in San Diego with the goal of reducing illiteracy and poverty with creative ideas. Its main program, StoryTents, is set up at different parts of San Diego and the volunteers read books with children and sometimes have them read to the volunteers all to help them enjoy reading. In East County, you can find StoryTents at the El Cajon Famers Market every Thursday from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and at the Santee Farmers Market the third Wednesday of every month from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Traveling Stories started locally through the hard work of Emily Moberly, the founder of Traveling Stories. Emily photo courtesy: Emily Moberly started Traveling Stories from scratch and now just five years later this non-profit has grown to partner with seven international libraries and the StoryTent program. But what led Emily to start helping kids in her community? Emily states, “[When I was] growing up, books were everything to me, so I was shocked to learn that many children in the world can’t read and have never had access to books. Through Traveling Stories I not only get to watch kids fall in love with reading for the first time, but I get to help them develop the critical thinking skills they need to break the cycle of poverty in their own communities. We’re growing fast and reaching more kids, but there are still so many more who need reading support.” A few weeks ago Traveling Stories hosted a volunteer mixer to celebrate volunteers who selflessly gave time at StoryTents and other operations of Traveling Stories to encourage youth to become passionate about reading. California State Senator Joel Anderson provided Senate certificates of recognition to the volunteers and said, “Emily and her volunteers have set a great example for how we can empower the youth of our community with the skills they need to be intelligent and compassionate leaders in the future, and I am inspired by their efforts.” The organization’s successful community outreach was demonstrated by the diverse attendees of the Volunteer Mixer. Graphic designers, future lawyers, and even high school students attended the event. Traveling Stories has truly mobilized and motivated many different people in their effort to teach the new generation the wonders and opportunities that come with picking up a book and immersing oneself in reading. Alex Sinclair, a high school senior and Traveling Stories volunteer said, “When you have an idea that is loved by everyone who gets involved with it, you know something special and important is happening.”

Good News for Small Business: City of El Cajon Temporary Signage Ordinances Are Business-Friendly! By Keith Woolgar

Attention-Getters For The East County Herald

A

s most students of small business marketing know, temporary banners, outdoor inflatables, pennants, streamers and other head-turning, eye-catching advertising tools are time-tested and proven tools for increasing traffic for a business. As the saying goes, “A business without a sign is a sign of no business.” In the past, the City of El Cajon’s rules on the use of these items were a source of frustration for local business owners. The rules were considered strict restrictions when compared to other nearby municipalities. Times have changed. However, in talking amongst others in the business community recently, it appeared that not many locals were aware of the opportunity spelled out clearly in today’s city ordinances and on the city website. Further, I called the city to verify what I was reading and here are the results of my findings. This is big! There are 90 plus days when NO PERMIT is required to have inflatables, banners, pennants, and other temporary signage working for you in the city. Basically, the approved “no permit needed” times are perfect; they are before, during and after key retail holidays. This is a real score for local merchants that every single El Cajon business person should be aware of. The holidays include New Years Day, Valentine’s Day (an 18 day period!), Mother’s Day (17 days from April 26 thru May 12), Independence Day (more than two weeks), Labor Day (11 days) and the entire period starting with Thanksgiving Day, through Christmas, and until Jan. 3. That alone is a 37-day stretch, including the entire month of December. Zowie! Further, outside of those 90

plus days, permits are readily available and very reasonable. Guess what else. The city employees who helped my on the phone were also readily available, reasonable, knowledgeable and nice. What could be better? A snippet from a recent academic study (USD) follows. The percentage increases shown below are numbers that can really help a business beat an “economic downturn” and in some cases, save that business from going under. As reported by the International Sign Association in their online newsletter: “The University of San Diego conducted a study to determine the economic value of on-premise signage. Table II shows the average increase in sales revenue that resulted from signage improvements. TABLE II – Average Increase in Sales Revenue Signage Change: Add one monument sign Sales increase: +9.3 percent (fast food)

Signage Change: Add large pole sign (144 sq. ft.) Sales increase: +15.6 percent (fast food) Sales increase: +8.6 percent (Pier One Imports) Signage Change: Add chain identity to plaza identity sign Sales increase: +7.7 percent (Pier One Imports) Signage Change: Addition of two new directional signs Sales increase: +8.9 percent (Pier One Imports) Signage Change: Replaced storefront wall sign with larger sign Sales increase: +7.7 percent (Pier One Imports)” Imagine what a small restaurant in El Cajon with $1000 per day in sales, can do with an extra $90 per day x 30 days in a month…that’s $2700. Pay rent, maybe?

t’s now a certainty that Kamala Harris will have an opponent on the November 2016 ballot. But much less certain is whether that opponent will be any more threatening that Elizabeth Emken, an autism activist who placed second in California’s 2012 Senate primary election, was to incumbent Dianne Feinstein. For one by one, potentially formidable opponents to the election of Harris, now the state attorney general and previously district attorney of San Francisco, have fallen by the wayside since early January. Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer took himself out early. So did state Treasurer John Chiang, followed by former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and current Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor who opted instead to run for governor in 2018. Then former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice took herself out, possibly because she would have had to face questions about her role in deceptions that led to the war in Iraq. Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin also nixed a run. Any one of those four fellow Democrats and two Republicans could have posed a threat for Harris’ bid to replace the retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer. Harris doesn’t look particularly intimidating, but she got to work very quickly on the Senate race, declaring for the job almost immediately after Boxer announced her impending retirement. Before anyone else had done much of anything, she staged high-profile fund-raisers in Bel Air, Long Beach, San Francisco and Washington D.C. At the same time, she quickly got endorsements from dozens of prominent Democrats. Harris, who handily won reelection as attorney general last fall before starting this run, also was helped when her investigators raided the home of the disgraced Michael Peevey, former head of the state Public Utilities Commission. Investigating Peevey, who drew praise from Gov. Jerry Brown and other major Democrats even as his alleged corruption became more and more evident, has made Harris seem politically independent and a tough backer of consumer interests. Put all this together and she’s a pretty intimidating candidate. Yes, there’s still the possibility of someone else substantial getting in against Harris, whose name was recognized by only 40 percent of likely voters in one late-winter poll. But so far, the only declared opponent is Republican Assemblyman Rocky Chavez of San Diego County. Several Democratic congressional veterans, realizing that gerrymandering in other states has made it very difficult for their party to regain control of the House of Representatives, also might risk making this run. While Harris’ early entrance, bully pulpit as attorney general and her early endorsements strengthen her, she lacks the huge war chest used so often by senatorial candidates like Feinstein, Alan Cranston and Pete Wilson to scare off significant opposition. Newsom, who quickly raised $800,000 this winter to run for governor atop the $3 million left in his campaign kitty after last year’s run for reelection, will plainly try to employ financial intimidation against all but billionaires when his campaign gets serious two years from now. But Harris didn’t have that kind of money before she began raising new funds and has not made a formal financial report. She had just $1.3 million in her campaign account when her reelection run ended last fall, and it’s unclear how much of that is transferable to a federal campaign. By contrast, Burbank Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff had $2.1 million in his war chest at last report, and all of it could be used for a Senate run if he opts for that over reelection. Schiff has also said he thinks it’s time a credible Southern California candidate challenged the state’s San Francisco-based Democratic power elite, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Newsom, Harris, party chairman John Burton and Gov. Jerry Brown, with his base across the Bay in nearby Oakland. Villaraigosa, with strong appeal among Latino voters, had appeared poised to be that kind of candidate before pulling out. Another Latino might yet emerge as a Harris challenger, with Orange County Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez and Xavier Becerra of East Los Angeles, part of the House Democratic leadership, still possibilities. But right now Harris dominates this race, in part because she got in early and acted fast. Unless someone else acts soon, it figures to be more coronation than contest.

I’m 79 and I’ve taken a couple of spills in the last few months. I’m concerned that I might not be as steady on my feet as I used to be. What should I do about this?

.

About one in ten people over 65 experience difficulty with balance. More than 40 percent of Americans will go to a doctor complaining of dizziness. Getting older is only part of the problem. Inner-ear disturbances are the primary cause. Losing balance when you’re older is serious stuff. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that, each year, more than one in three people over 65 years suffers a fall. Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths among older adults. And, even if the fall doesn’t kill you, you could fracture a hip and then a whole bunch of problems can cascade over you—limitations on activities, isolation, loss of independence, depression. Not all balance problems have the same cause. Here are several major ones: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). With BPPV, one of the most common causes of balance problems, you get vertigo when you change the position of your head. You may also experience BPPV when you roll over, get out of bed, or when look on a high shelf. BPPV is more likely in people over 60 years old. Labyrinthitis, an infection or inflammation of the inner ear. The labyrinth is the organ in your inner ear that enables you to maintain balance. Ménière’s disease, which also can give you intermittent hearing loss, a ringing or roaring in the ears, and a feeling of fullness in the ear. Other causes may involve another part of the body, such as the brain or the heart. Aging, infections, head injury, certain medicines, or problems with blood circulation may also cause problems with balance. Blood-pressure medications and some antibiotics can cause balance problems. If you are taking any drugs in these categories and feel off-balance, it’s worth discussing with your doctor. Some people may have a balance problem and don’t know it. Balance disorders can be difficult to diagnose because patients sometimes can’t describe their symptoms well. Balance disorders can be signs of other health problems, so it’s important to have them checked out. If you can answer any of the following positively, discuss the symptom with your doctor. Do I feel: Unsteady? Disoriented? As if the room is spinning? As if I’m moving when I’m still? As if I’m falling? As if I might faint? Also, do you ever lose your balance and fall? Or, do you experience blurred vision? Persistent balance problems are not something you should pass off as a harmless part of the aging process. They should always be examined carefully.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Multiple Sclerosis patients could benefit from brain boost study

ultiple Sclerosis (MS) patients could one day benefit from treatments that boost their brain function, a study suggests. Increasing the activity of neurons could be beneficial in people with the disease, researchers say. It could stimulate the production of a substance that protects nerve fibres. The finding could pave the way for new treatments, researchers say. Multiple Sclerosis affects the brain and spinal cord and can cause problems with balance, movement and vision. Information in the brain is transmitted along nerve fibres known as axons. A material -called myelin -- forms a layer around axons, which keeps them healthy and helps speed up the transfer of information. Damage to myelin contributes to diseases of the brain such as MS. Until now, it was not known how brain activity controls production of myelin by specialist cells, researchers say. Researchers examined how

changes in the activity of neurons affects how much myelin is produced in the brains of zebrafish. Decreased brain function reduced the amount of myelin made, while production was increased by around 40 per cent when the neuronal activity of fish was increased, the team says. Before they can develop new therapies, the team says it needs to learn more about how brain function controls the complex processes by which axons are coated with myelin. The study, published in the journal Nature Neuroscience, was funded by The Wellcome Trust, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, and the Lister Research Prize. Dr David Lyons, of the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Neuroregeneration, who led the study, said: “We have a long way to go before we fully understand how our brain activity regulates myelin production, but the fact that this is even something that the brain can do is a good news story. We are hopeful that one day in the future we may be able to translate this type of discov-

A Day in the Life of Jesus the Messiah PART I

reetings precious people, this week we will begin a series which will be entitled, “A day in the life of Jesus the Messiah.” Over the past 2,000 years that have been many writings, books, messages, thoughts, 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. Let us begin this journey by setting some very important guidelines. First we must realize that Jesus has not changed and never will. Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Second, Jesus is the express image of God, Hebrews 1:1-4 “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” 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.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” Thirdly, because He is Who He says He is and that He never changes, the work He did 2,000 years ago, He continues work through those who are surrendered to Him, offerings themselves as vessels fit for the Master’s use. This should bring great hope to anyone and everyone today in the hopeless world that we live in. I will remind you of this (that which has been previously stated) each week as we look at the life and ministry of Jesus on any given day as it is recorded in the Bible. Why? You may ask, because there are many today that would have you believe that Jesus is not who He says He is; that He is not the same today and forever. Now let us look at part of a day in the life of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew 4:17-22, “From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers; Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him. Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. And He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.” Two things from this in the short amount of space we have left to us. First, the message Jesus ‘began to preach’ (and would continue to this day) REPENT. There are three parts to true Biblical repentance: a change of mind/thinking toward sin and everything else Jesus preaches and stands for; a change of heart, a genuine sorrow over my sin that I have committed against God; a change of direction, a ceasing and desisting of living in sin and start living in righteousness. All three are necessary for true repentance to occur and know for certain as Jesus said, without repentance one will not see the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus demands repentance from all that would follow Him. Secondly, the calling of the first disciples to “follow Him” with the promise that He will make them fishers of men. This call to follow Jesus has not changed in 2,000 years. It is still one that He gives out today. Understand this dear ones, for the first disciples as well as those of today, whoever would choose to heed the call, there must be repentance of a live that is focused upon self.

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.

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

Sense of awe

Awesome! Beautiful!” Paul’s voice, filled with wonder, rings out from inside the car. It was years ago and he’d been talking nonstop since we left El Cajon headed for a weekend in Phoenix. Outside the car huge boulders rose up on either side of the highway as we drove down the curvy incline from In-Ko-Pah Park toward the desert. Paul’s dad and I had planned this weekend as a treat for Paul, knowing he’d love the fancy Embassy Suites accommodations, but not sure how he’d handle the six hour drive from El Cajon to Phoenix. “What? What’s beautiful?” I ask as I scan the roadside for something out of the ordinary. As far as I can see, we’re surrounded by rocks. I’ve always loved the sand dunes that remind me of “Lawrence of Arabia” and I love seeing the little red and blue buggies squirting up and down the dunes with their whiplash flags flying. The rest of the trip is pretty much rocks and scrub desert. “The rocks! They’re beautiful!” Paul answers. “Looks like God scattered them everywhere.” Paul was delighted with the rocks, the scrub cacti, the dunes… everything. When we arrived in northeast Phoenix – Scottsdale - we pulled into the entrance to the Embassy Suites where uniformed valets scurried around the circular drive under the

high canopy, helping new arrivals. “Why are we stopping here?” Paul asked. “This is where we’re staying.” “Here?! We’re staying here???” We assured him we were and while Dad parked the car, Paul, with his walker, and I made our way into the lobby. Just inside the lobby doors, Paul stopped dead. “Whoa!” He looked up at the cavernous lobby ceiling. He took in the sparkling lights and green plants and the brook meandering through it all. “This is awesome! I thought we were going to stay at a Motel 6.” Last month, recovering from major surgery, scared and hurting, Paul was wheeled into his room at the Grossmont Rehab Center. The room was large; the wall opposite the bed was covered with floor to ceiling drapes. We pulled them aside to reveal… Roses! Rows and rows of red, yellow, pink, white and orange roses, six feet tall. “It’s beautiful! It’s like a Cinderella’s garden!” Paul enthusiasm filled the room. Forget the pain and the fear; this was an awesome sight. Needless to say, that curtain stayed open most of the time, until the roses were pruned several weeks later. Paul never tired of telling his visitors, “The roses are awesome!”

“Good-bye, Paul,” Dr. Aquitania said as Paul returned to the waiting room after his first appointment with the neurologist last fall. “Catch ya later!” Paul says as the door shuts behind him. Before it closes all the way, Paul proclaims, “That guy is awesome. He’s smart.” After seeing “Mary Poppins” at the Civic Theater with his Uncle David, Paul calls me. He’s standing on the sidewalk with his cousins and aunt, waiting for Uncle David to get the car from the parking garage when he pulls out his cell phone, “It was awesome, Mom! It was fantastic! You should’ve seen it. I loved it!” “Look, Mom! Look at the beautiful grass. They should put a prayer garden there.” Last fall Paul started noticing green lawns as we went on our daily drives. He loves them! One day I thought about the perpetually green lawn up the street from us. He hadn’t said anything about it so I asked, “How about that one?” “It’s artificial.” Whether it’s naturally green lawns or a trip to Fuddruckers with his brother or someone he’s just met and hit it off with or his cousin Wendy’s home-made chocolate cookies or huge boulders in the desert, it’s AWESOME. Knowing Paul – uh-oh… Well, I just gotta say it… Knowing Paul is awesome.

Learn to Teach Abroad through SDSU Program

an Diego State University offers a program that prepares novice instructors to successfully live and teach English overseas. The popular 130-hour Teaching English as a Second Language/Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificate program is scheduled for weekdays from 8 am-4:30 pm, June 1-26 or July 6-31. “I had absolutely no teaching experience before going abroad. I mean, none. So, 130 hours transformed me into a legitimate ESL/EFL teacher who felt comfortable standing in front of a class, designing curriculum, and teaching a subject with which I had no prior experience,” said former student Sarah Castillo, who taught in Spain for more than two years. “Before I took the TESL/ TEFL Certificate program, I was totally afraid to speak in front of a group of people. It became my vehicle to change my life,” added former student Alicia Wszelaki, who completed the program and then traveled the globe teaching English. These sessions are offered through the American Language Institute, a division of SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. Cost of the program is $2,725. More than 200 graduates of the program have been employed in 40-plus countries with the help of this ALI program that combines a solid teaching foundation with hands-on practical classroom experience.

For more information, visit ali.sdsu.edu/teslteflcertificate or email jgreeno@mail.sdsu.edu. This is a SDSU Research Foundation program. 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 CES also offers one of the largest ESL programs in the U.S. through the American Language Institute; and university-quality courses to students age 50 and better through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Other opportunities include seminars, study abroad, corporate education and access to regular SDSU classes through Open University.

Citizens group reports on hospital Sharp Grossmont Hospital offers planning construction expenses The Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Commiton Decisions Day

tee (ICBOC), a group of volunteers monitoring how the public agency Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD) is spending millions of dollars in taxpayer-approved bonds for new and improved patient care facilities at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, has issued its 2014 Annual Report to the Community. “We serve as the taxpayers’ eyes, ears and voices, and, overall, we are pleased with the transparency of the expenditure process and the progress of construction,” said Kathleen Bute, 2015 ICBOC chairwoman. “We also were very pleased with the results of the audit.” Annually, the ICBOC group requests an audit of bond fund expenditures by independent external auditors. In 2014, Bute said the auditors responded with an “unqualified” opinion, which is regarded as the best type of audit result, indicating a clean bill of financial health. “The audit results indicate meticulous management of taxpayer dollars with no deficiencies or inconsistencies in internal controls or compliance,” she said. “The public can be confident how their bond tax dollars are being spent at their publicly owned hospital.” The ICBOC 2014 annual report features an update on construction activity during the past year with the Heart and Vascular Center, Central Energy Plant and East Tower, three projects being financed by the Proposition G bonds that East County voters approved in June 2006. The Prop. G ballot measure passed by more than 77 percent, well over the two-thirds required. The ICBOC 2014 annual report is available at a publicly accessible website, via this link: http:// tinyurl.com/o4bx8eh. The GHD website, www.grossmonthealthcare.org, also houses all the citizen group’s bylaws, annual workplans, reports, memos, agendas, minutes and presentations from previous meetings.
