Protecting Civil Rights and National Security: FBI v Apple Inc.

Kay Ko, Ph.D., J. DKay Ko, Ph.D., J. D
The Westlake Village Inn was the luncheon site March 21, 2019 for Dr. Kay Ko’s excellent, dynamic presentation on a very important current topic of personal privacy and civil rights. Dr. Ko worked as an Intelligence Analyst, as a Supervisory Intelligence Analyst and currently is working in the Office of Public Affairs at the FBI. Her program was included in a series presented at the school of Public Policy at Pepperdine University Policy Incentives Practitioners Series March 2018. “The public policy arguments advocating enhanced protections for civil liberties and the competing national security concerns underlying government efforts to protect citizens against foreign and domestic threats have presented a conflict of interests from both sides of the argument.” Dr. Ko’s goal was to carefully weigh the costs and benefits to society of each position and seek to identify the concerns most impacting the welfare and security of the American citizens. Members were able to interact and present their view from both sides.

Beacon of Light Gala Christmas Luncheon

December 6, 2018 Christmas Holiday Gala was an elegant, festive event with many facets. The day began with teeming rain. To date it has never rained on our impressive Dove Release for Peace with dove man Tommy Bolger. After the reception in the Conservatory, the Voices of Christmas Choral Group circulating, Christmas Market shopping and in spite of the rain O’Gara /Coach Westlake exhibited their cars in the circular entry of the Sherwood County Club. at 11:45 A.M a miracle happened. The rain abated and Reverend Dr. Gary Alan Dickey playing his bagpipes led us all onto the terrace where Beacon of Light Awardees Vishva Dev, M.D. and Sally Pipes, PhD. sent off the first doves. Plan B was not needed. Dr. Dickey then led us all into the White House Dining Room for a delicious luncheon and program. Two awardees, Gregory Fontana, M.D. and Sebatian Gorka, Ph.D. were not in attendance and will attend later in the year to accept their awards. Dr. Gorka is the former security analyst and security advisor to President Trump at the White House. We were pleased to view a video sent by Dr. Gorka commending our group and accepting the award.

Ventura County District Attorney Gregory Totten, Master of Ceremonies presided. Reverend Gary Dicky gave the invocation. Rosemary Licata, V.P. Programs presented Sally Pipes, Ph.D., CEO Pacific Research Institute, and an expert in health care policy speaks around the country and writes prolifically on health care policy, the Beacon of Light Americanism Award. Vishva Dev, M.D., cardiologist and co-founder of the Cardio Vascular Institute and Chest Center, Los Robles Medical Center, Thousand Oaks, CA,. received the Humanitarian Award. Both gave inspiring talks of their accomplishments. Dr. Dev related his heartwarming, touching life’s story of coming from extreme poverty as a boy in an untouchable caste family in a small village in India and eventually being inspired by a doctor who visited his town treating the residents without charge. Vishva remained with his grandmother for a time. He spoke no English but after some roadblocks, discouragement and eventual inspiration by professors he achieved his goal. He dedicated the award to his uneducated mother who raised 10 children who have all achieved advanced degrees and commendable careers. She broke the untouchable’s custom and entered the public baths to obtain water for her family and the family was stripped of all they had. After moving to a different town, operating a small grocery store, gave inspiration and dedication to her children to pursue education in spite of barriers and mores of her situation. (See article by Debra Tash CitizensJournal.US.) We were entertained excellently, courtesy of Natasha Trenev, by soprano Stephanie Steiner and violinist Giulia Gurevich, pianist Jeni Bello. Gregory Totten installed the 2019 executive Officers. New West Symphony concert tickets donated by executive Director Natalia Staneva were presented in a live auction.

“The President Will See You Now”

President Ronald Reagan chose Peggy Grande to work at his side for 10 years, and together they created a powerful partnership. Serving as his post presidency Executive Assistant, Peggy was the liaison between Ronald Reagan personally and his staff, the public, local dignitaries, and world leaders. She ensured that his events, travel, personal and political relationships and day to day operations were handled efficiently, and effectively. She had a front row seat to history and got to know Ronald Reagan the man…Peggy traveled with him regularly and was also his post presidency photographer which gave her a behind the scenes view of his private interaction with Margaret Thatcher, Mikhail Gorbachev…Mother Teresa. Peggy witnessed first-hand leadership on display at its highest and best. It was an honor of a lifetime for her to have known and worked closely with one of the greatest political figures of our era…” Her book The President Will See You Now is a best seller. Peggy personalized her books sold. Her stories and anecdotes were amusing and showed Ronald Reagan’s best side.
