Re: “For a Few Dollars More

What you are missing:

1) IHSS was designed for a friend or family member to care for a loved one without going completely broke. There is no "career path."

2) Just because someone is fortunate enough to make $11.65 instead of $9 doesn't mean they shouldn't pursue a better job or a real career with opportunities. Of course, some workers would have to finish high school, or learn better language skills, or take other self-motivated actions to increase their attractiveness to the general workforce.

IHSS should NOT become a highly paid dead-end job. It should be a stepping stone or a job a loved one can choose to do for their client.

3) Lastly, local government threw us under the bus with their unsustainable pension benefit increases in 1997 & 2002. There's no freakin' money for this. Plus they tried to take it out on their own contractors and non-profits last month. Notice how well THAT went over. They pulled the proposed ordinance back after hearing from the aforementioned groups of employers. The County needs to take agressive, creative action to reduce our pension obligations. Maybe there will be money then.

So, opposed to $15 in principal. On board with police reform. Guess that makes me... "Independent?" Should gave kept your old name, lol...

Re: “Letters to the Editor: May 7, 2014

Nice letter, Doc. I, too believe in recovery, restoration and forgiveness for Efren Carrillo. It's between him and Jane Doe from this point forwards. One day at a time, as he said the other day to the PD.

Re: “Play On, Brother

This case is one of the reasons Ravitch has to go. It is inexcusable how hard this prosecutor tried to make Houston Herczog a murderer rather than a mental patient - 3 opinions in favor of schizophrenia and she calls in a 4th doctor, which has never been done before in my memory. And still she lost the case, although the rest of us feel justice was finally achieved. Ravitch also promised procedural reform, which has not occurred. Mark Herczog, a good father, friend and fellow musician, died because he refused to call in law enforcement for fear they would murder his child, like Jeremiah Chass was murdered by our Sheriff's office.

Re: “Time for Charges

While I initially supported the calls for Carrillo's resignation, I have decided to leave this young man alone with his demons. We ALL have them, in various degrees. Watching the Progressives wring their hands over this issue has been an education in itself, and not to their benefit - they seem incapable of making a decision, and certainly we need decisive leaders, like Carrillo, who adamantly spoke out against Paul Hobbs' vineyard development on behalf of his Constituents. Short of a felony conviction, Efren will prevail. I believe he strikes the right balance between our County's needs for jobs, education and reasonable environmental protections. Furthermore, I disagree with our County's favorite political analyst, David McCuan of SSU - Efren WILL take a higher office within the next five years. I Iook forward to working with him in the future.

Re: “Step Down, Efren

Nice commentary, Lisa. I feel all Citizens should feel safe in their homes, regardless of gender.
