San Diego County Providing Free Depression Screenings

oh come on...... suicide SCREENINGS? What's that going to do? Most folks are depressed nowadays because they are losing everything or not able to make ends meet. What's a screening going to do? Provide you housing, food and a job? What am I missing? Or is this again one of these charity events where the folks in charge can deduct this from their taxes and feel good about themselves for "doing something" even if it won't change a thing?

Solutions Waning For Tenants Of Substandard Housing

Even if Graciela wins her lawsuit, the landlord can't evict her for something like 6 months afterwards so she still will have to move. And IF the landlord is fined by the court, will she have that money immediately at her disposal as a new deposit? Or is it like small claims court where even if you win, it does not mean you collect immediately, if at all?
There should be a law that requires landlords to arrange for similar temporary housing for t heir tenants, if they need to fix their place in order to make it habitable. There is just NO recourse for the average poor tenant, especially where it comes to retaliatory evictions. The Legal Aid Society thinks that is just too complex and they won't take the case. I also believe that the Fair Housing Council does not represent tenants in court. So as usual the poor are left out in the cold! What's new? Even Section 8 does NOT advocate for their tenants. They just tell the tenant to look for a new place without providing a deposit that can be paid back once the old place is vacated. It is a crying shame and nobody seems to care.

State Budget Cuts Impacting Local Parks, Beaches

Ok so there are budget cuts and staffing shortages with the lifeguards on the state beaches. So what about having an unpaid intern help the life guards. My kids have been in the Junior Life Guard program in the summer in IB. What about if the older teenagers do an internship on the weekends toward their life guard certificate/ diploma. Nothing better than motivated never tiring teenagers. If you can not just put a volunteer to help the life guards because of lack of training, then wouldn't that be a solution?
