We wrapped up our first hour long TV NEWS program on the Local Cable Company. The have a great crew, and a lot of fun to work with. I did my first Television NEWS in 1964 when the Cable Television Industry decided to operate local home town television channels. I had a wonderful time engineering several studio systems, do camera and production work, and then on camera work in several large metro cities back east. Opportunity and other obligations took me to other management positions and industries. I feel like I have gone home to visit an old friend. Good to be back on TV and reporting local news and events to everyone. KAHI Radio is still my home as Barry in the Morning, and now stretching to a camera to enhance the stories is a hoot. We will have linkage to the program, and hope you watch when you have time. One hour a week. Schedules and other information will be coming.

The Auburn City Council created some controversy this week as they wrestle with zoning State driven requirements that demands the city make zoned property available to homeless shelter construction. Many in attendance were passionate about wanting better placement and away from Rail Road property. The State of California mandated all cities to have zoned areas and criteria for the shelters by 10-13 and was issued in 2007. The city was criticized for waiting almost 6 years to act on this mandate. One suggestion by Councilman Bill Kirby was to investigate a county solution to the homeless problem and cities would contribute toward a common effort. I have been investigating the treatment of Homeless and Mental Ill people for the last three months, and have learned a lot, and still am. The ironic thing is the current model started with President Harry Truman who felt there had to be a major modification to the Federal Program to care for the Mental Ill citizens. President John F. Kennedy revised it further which was further expanded by President Lindon Johnson. The Truman model was to close all federal hospitals and fund states to take care of the ill. Truman believed with the returning soldiers from WW II would overwhelm the system, and having the problem supported closer to home would be better for the mental patients. Some states took the lead in this concept such as Massassachuets, CT. and PA. Their programs created state hospitals and neighborhood facilities to care for their residents. California also created state hospitals including the Dewitt Center which started as a military hospital to take care of injured soldiers coming home from the Pacific theater. The Federal Government then turned Dewitt Center over to the state and became a mental hospital. President Ronald Regan then shut down all the State run hospitals with two exceptions. one in Napa and another one somewhere in the central state. Dewitt patients, along with several thousand others were literally set to the streets to fend for themselves.

The Grand Model started by Truman was forced to dealt with by the State, and California State Senator Darrell Strindberg helped author Proposition 63 in November of 2004 to fund, support and provide other resources to support COUNTY health services. This Prop would tax earners of more than one million dollars each year by a 1% tax.

I plan to continue to examine the Prop, how the County is doing, and are the mentally ill getting the care they need? Stay Tuned!
