Aired 9/30/11 on KPBS Midday Edition.
We look at this week's grounding of SDG&E helicopters working on the Sunrise Powerlink project, prison realignment affecting San Diego and a local tribe standoff over a lease.
This week state regulators grounded SDG&E helicopters working on the Sunrise Powerlink project east of San Diego after two accidents went unreported. Prison realignment is becoming a reality, we find out how it affects San Diego and a local tribe is pushing to get a private military contractor off their land.
