"San Diego businesses rely on this cross border traffic. In fact, San Diego County Supervisor Nora Vargas says retail sales were down 72% a $200 million loss for the region. Pop star Britney Spears drew the world's attention this week when she finally spoke out in a California court against the conservatorship that she's been living under for more than a decade. A bill making its way through the state Legislature seeks to give people like Spears more control over their cases. KQED is Katie or reports under conservatorship. A judge can appoint a guardian to oversee another person's finances and affairs. Spears says her situation has gone too far. She says she can't access her money without permission. She can't see her Children. She can't even make decisions about her own birth control. Silicon Valley Assembly member Evan Low, says Spears is experience is emblematic of how the process can go wrong. He authored a bill that would make several reforms. It also creates a civil penalty of up to $5000. If the court finds that the conservatory has not acted in the best interests of the client conservatorship is typically used for developmentally disabled adults or the elderly. Low says it's important when used correctly, But he says too many times the process is abused. For the California report. I'm Katie are in Sacramento. We're going to head north. Now to Mendocino County. Cal Fire has just paused, logging on a section of the Jackson demonstration. State forest that's right along the coast. And that's after outrage by members of the local community. Many of them say older redwood trees are being harvested, which is actually bad for limiting wildfire, not to mention the local economy. Alicia Bales from our partner station K z y X in u K A is with us now. Hi, Alicia. Hi, Lily. Thanks for having me. Thank you. So much for coming on the show. Alicia should start by telling us about the Jackson demonstration State Forest, which is where this conflict is playing out. Sure, Jackson State Forest is about 50,000 acres of Redwood and other Conifer forest right in the heart of Mendocino County, So it's a very large forest area, but it's also public land. It's owned by the state of California, and it's meant to be what they call a working forest and to demonstrate all sorts of different industrial logging operations. And why was Cal fire allowing the logging of these mature redwood trees? These are giant majestic trees that I'm sure a lot of our our listeners are very familiar with. Yes, so they're not the ancient redwoods. Most of those have been taken and a lot of those are protected at this point. So we're talking about mature second growth redwoods, the trees that grew back after the ancient trees were decimated. So these second growth trees are starting to take on old growth characteristics. And Cal fire has the slated to log in this area because Cal fire has to pay for the management of Jackson Demonstration, State Forest. So as much as they tell us that their mandate is to research and learn more about industrial logging practices to do the best job. It's in conflict with the actual mandate of making money to pay for the operations of the forest. So activists are quite upset about the taking of the second growth trees and they've been Protesting ever since logging began on June 10th. So I think a lot of listeners are probably familiar with protests of that ilk. But one of the most stunning things about this story, Alicia is that the logging company is holding its own protest. Am I understanding that right? That's right. On Saturday, the logging company Anderson Logging, which is a small outfit here in Fort Bragg, called their own protests and they didn't just show up to hold signs and make their voices heard. They did a direct action protests taking a page from the activists. They blockaded the road into Jackson State, and they said If we can't log you can't go in for recreation. What are the risks of this sort of logging? Well, the activists are concerned that the large redwoods the trees that are starting to take on those old growth characteristics. Those are the trees that are the most fire resistant. You know, our county has been experiencing devastating and increasingly horrible wildfires every year. And also when you open up the forest canopy like that the regrowth is quite dense and much more prone to burn. And it seems foolhardy to take them out at this point when we are facing a climate crisis when we have increasing evidence that the climate crisis is is upon us, and these trees can do a lot to help. I mean, this confluence of things really defies logic. You're taking out the most resilient trees in order to Do fire mitigation, and then when it grows back, it's actually more fire prone. I can't quite understand why Cal fire would allow that to have taken place in the first place, but we now know that they have paused the project. So what's next? So Cal Fire has called for a community meeting. So far, the activists are skeptical. They've been calling for a meeting with Cal fire for months now, So it does seem like Cal Fire is moving toward trying to solve this problem, But maybe the Saturday meeting is really a PR move. Mm. Well, please keep us posted. Alicia Bales from Casey y X in UK idea. Thank you. Thank you..

Ruth for high is a psychologist and program director at Friendship Bench, a community based mental health care organization in Zimbabwe. Thank you for your time and for the work you're doing. Thank you very much. Thanks for listening. Next. We're going to Southern California, where two large cities Tijuana and San Diego share a border for years, San Diego was considered a Republican stronghold. But demographics have shifted with a growing community of young professionals and new immigrants. Now Democrats have the edge. From San Diego, Max Rivlin. Nadler, with KPBS reports on how one Latina has changed politics in that county after Sunday from Mason City, where it's actually raining a lot, But I'm not gonna indoors because I'm not dyslexic, Super important. Nora Vargas walked in the rain and National city a few miles north of the US Mexico border. Going door to door asking people to support her campaign. This was during the primary elections Last year, she was running for county Board of Supervisors where there hadn't been a competitive election in 25 years. So when Vargas would show up at her neighbor's doors, asking for their vote, it took some trust building. Folks in the community told me we're going to give you a chance, but we're gonna be watching because politicians come here. They asked us for things and then they never come back, and I think that's the piece that's really important, right. We have to deliver for our communities. Latinos in San Diego County had never been elected to the Board of Supervisors. In a county where they make up 33% of the population. But that changed in November's election. The results are showing Nora Vargas with a healthy lead at 54, a half percent Vargas of Planned Parenthood executive became the first Latina and immigrant on the board of Supervisors. She was born into Quanah. Her mother was a U. S citizen, Her father, a Mexican citizen. Something that's pretty common in this cross border community. Going back and forth between two nations is where she believes her political journey began. I think when I realized that I was in a very unique state because I was able to cross the border and That's when it hit me. What can I do to make the world better for other people? And I think that's politics was a knave. A new for me to do that? For Latinos in San Diego, there wasn't a road map to political power. So Vargas had to look elsewhere to be Americana Latina. And then they go on with my friends would say, an honorary Chicana. I really count my blessings that I grew up in a family where going out away to college was actually encouraged. I needed to see the world watching her own mother work in local nonprofits and her grandmother run across border business. She told me they were unintentional feminists. Ah perspective she brought to a Jesuit university in San Francisco. Having those conversations about what feminism was and what women's rights were. And then me trying to figure out well, what does that mean to communities of color for people who don't have access for opportunities? Vargas found a place at Planned Parenthood where she eventually became an executive. You know, I was a patient of Time parenthood in my household. We didn't talk about sex and sexuality but at the health There's a lot of myths and Latino community. There's a lot of taboo around speaking about sexuality. Access to health care was a fundamental part of her campaign. The county's board of Supervisors has the power to build new hospitals and curb pollution. In San Diego. For decades, That board has been monochromatic and entirely Republican, particularly since the nineties, the board would definitely had a complexion, too. It was an all white board that's University of San Diego politics Professor Carl Luna. He explains that in California, the board of Supervisors holds the money bags. They are the portal for state programs, seldom in any other place in America. Do five people have so much power, Vargas is carrying an extra burden her fellow supervisors wreck Denies that they need her experience to serve every community in the county. Vargas was immediately put in charge of the county's vaccine distribution efforts to the Latino community. She believes that reaching the community and ways they'll not only understand,.

The county government enacted a complete ban. No medicinal, no recreational, nothing and and it it really is that this rooted in the past that we we, we've moved beyond and so the farm bureau Had said, Hey, this is vital for our farmers who had a bill to grow Thies product.

"Evening and more rain Thursday night into Friday, mid fifties over most of San Diego County today, and right now it is still looks a little breezing in downtown. It's not as windy is, it was so it is dying off. Mostly cloudy 54 Kogo in two years time 7 11 will setting improving conditions in hospitals. State health officials Monday lifted all regional stay at home orders, including here in San Diego, but We're still gonna be in that purple tier of the reopening guidelines. So joining us on the Congo nears live line County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and supervisor So Are we opening reopening too quickly? Is this the right time? The governor? Yeah. What are your thoughts on this? Because we're still pretty. I think I think the one thing we talked about it time Lord Donna throughout. This is there's the lag, and there's a delay in terms of what you're seeing. And so the decision that came out of the state with what they've been doing is projecting out what they think I see you. Capacity will be in 3 to 4 weeks. And so when you look at our cases which are are descending on, do you know? Ignore hospitalizations are holding steady. We know the hospital situation should improve, you know, in the next 21 to 24 days. And so I think, given that the severity of the stay at home order on D impact it had I think it is the right thing. Teemu back into the purple tear, you know, provide a little relief to our restaurants Get them back outdoor dining. Maybe today's not the best day to do that. But with the weather, but You get to get them back out and he gets our personal service is back, open and running, and then we're back in the instruction in the system we know and we're comfortable with. We know how we wanted to the cases. We know what happens is we descend tears and I think it will provide a little more certainty. Around that what we need to do so I think it's fine. I think it's the right the right steps and you know again. It's always a very difficult balance. You know, trying trying to be struck, but I think this is good for our region. So are you happy with the way the vaccine rollout is going? Some people having no trouble at all getting appointments. Other people are AH, little confused. What's going on there? Well, I'm not. No, I'm not happy with the vaccine. Roland. We need more vaccine. We need it quicker. We need to know when we're going to get it. And, um You know, we just don't have. We don't have the things right now. So we have limited numbers of appointments. And so that the biggest complaint is people saying, I can't get an appointment and it's because the minute you put him up, they're gone. That's exactly right the ways in some ways that Study a good problem. That is a less bad problem. It would be a worse problem that we were here saying, you know, we have active available and no one wanted to come take him. We have the opposite problem. We just don't have enough. I mean, 10 Diego. Look, we're doing more than our share. Of the state. We're leaving in this effort in terms of number of vaccines are being administered number of sites we have open the dashboard. We have have up to report the information very transparently. And every day we're adding more. We added two more community pods over the weekend, one in Oceanside and one in National City. We're working on a superstation. Out in East County. I know Supervisor Anderson will will be pleased to get out and we've got one coming in North County Supervisor doesn't district And so the goal is by February 1st. We want to have four super stations up. 12 community pods and and an easier system for people to access. Those were also standing up phone link with people can call to 11. We're trying to make that work better for seniors who don't have computer access. We've got programs going out for home bones, homebound and long term care facilities. I mean, there's a lot moving, but again, the limiting factor on all of that is the availability of vaccine on the uncertainty around when we will get anything. So I'm you know is there like a constant supply coming in or did we get one shipment of vaccine and it's sitting there and we're just hoping Well, we don't know that. That's the real problem. We were two situation last week where We thought we would have to potentially close or scale back our our pods or points of distribution and R R superstation. And then you know, out of nowhere there like Oh, you're getting 173,000 doses like today And it's like Whoa. Okay, so then we just keep going now, after that, you don't you literally don't know. What you will get or if you will get anything tomorrow or the next there next week, And so it's just Ah, very erratic system Now I'm not. I didn't complain it all when they just dump came here. Here's a huge okay, Great. We'll take him and and we're working to get him out. It does make it difficult to plan for, you know, I mean, if we knew, Okay, you're going to get 200,000 every Monday. Then we could build it out. And then we could start to tell people Hey, we think around the state will get to this group. And so you know that that's the frustrating thing and I think I think throughout the duration of covet, we've tried to be very transparent. Here's what we know. And here's what we don't know and and we're not creating excuses were just sharing with people. Here's the situation and here's what we're doing, Tonto. The best address it and then we just continue moving forward. So you and Nora Vargas have introduced policies to foster economic access and social equity in the cannabis industry, which will be voted on by the board tomorrow. Can.

"Like a like a road. She can't kill it in this debate in this discussion. All right. First of all, it effects. Got through it, Sarah. No, no help from Andy. You got to say that was a bright, bright spot of the timing of my well done your child. Yes. Good job. We, uh we did get through it 36 sessions. We did not hold back on the sessions we were going to put together. Sarah, If you guys look in your feed, Sarah and Jesse Marks did their annual or Sarah's annual at least a regular run down of the California ballot measures. How many are there again? I keep getting it wrong, 12 15. There are well Well, Basically, there are 12, as evidenced by the fact that they go up to prop 25. What is what is there to be confused about then? Um We'll talk a little bit about it, I think later, but Proposition 15 and Proposition 22 R. I think really? Life. Altering for California, like California is a different place, depending on which way those go So if you're trying to catch up, go through your ballot listening to those that run down. They got all 12 into that hour, and it was really interesting around. But also I think the highlight of the week may have been Our friend. Trace reporter along. Stevens trace the traces as a nonprofit news organization that follows news about firearms. And about criminal justice issues like that along, Stevens reported. They're based in San Diego. He interviewed hobby or by Sarah, the state attorney general, basically the top Law enforcement officer in California about policing and it was good. A good conversation. Yeah, it was a really good conversation. I like give kudos to both of them because on the one hand, you know Javier Rivas. Sarah was in the hot seat for some really? Intense and aggressive questioning, and, you know kudos to a lawn for pushing. Back really strongly on an issue that so many people care about, so I thought it was amazing to watch. Yeah, it was. There was like there was Ah Mutual, like, Ah, rapport. That was kind of weird, right? Like it was. They were like going at it kind of along was hit him pretty hard, straight direct. But there was like a a good nature about it was like it was just really engaging. Yeah. There's also like a good lesson for people who put panels together or in this case, an interview where If your moderator or interviewer is Qualified enough on the subject that he could otherwise be a Panelist. That's usually a really good situation to be in. Yeah, well, here was one particular moment. In the end the discussion That really stood out for us. Alon Steven's kind of put into perspective why this topic was of such interest to him. When is it the point that law enforcement's gonna take the data pull back and say we need to have a strategic look about her application descent, relying on guys like me and academics to wait till things go wrong as a black person. I mean, take off. My reporter had here is a black person. I don't want to get killed by the cops. I don't want to wait for them to collect more data. And so I could be a stat in that data block whether we win or police going to kind of take charge of their own destinies, right and really start thinking about What they're doing, So whoever that was it really So what He's time there at first was This. Kind of take that I thought was really interesting from hobby. But Sarah where he was saying, like, Yeah, my job is to protect The system and the information within the system, and I'm fine with you guys pushing for transparency and reform and that's your role. Cinnabons. Kind of like, wait like You know, I'm happy to do that. But it doesn't seem like it should be just up to us. Yeah, and to take it out of the abstract for a second, like It remains unfathomable to me that prior to five years ago, there was no reliable, comprehensive database ofthe police shootings. In this country to do that sort of standard analysis and that, like, you know, news outlets like The Washington Post had to take the initiative to do that work that very obviously, seems like it should be done by the federal government. Yeah, and the police data that's collected in California. A za matter of state law. That law was fought tooth and nail. You know by police, Um, who still object to having to do it? One thing that was really clarifying for me. And that kind of illuminates this point. They you just made is that you know when we get gave the attorney general sort of like his last big pitch. He kind of reverted to these tropes we hear so much about Oh, there are some bad apples, bad apples. You know, we don't judge the press by their bad apples. Not sure how the true that is, but People don't know True. Don't judge, you know police who are overwhelmingly good. And so I mean, Despite the fact that he was willing tohave sit down and have this really tough conversation and despite the fact that he has pushed for some reforms You know, it just kind of clarified that I think if the system is going to undergo some really dramatic change, it's going to come from outside. On DH, not from people like him who do work within the system. You know he was painting a vision of A system that doesn't need systemic, structural change. And and that's not really where the rest of the conversation seems to be at right now. Well, if you are interested if we have wet your appetite on that you can look inside your podcast feed. It's already there. Bonus podcast police reform with Javier Sarah interviewed by Alon Steven's great discussion, Good job putting together, Sarah. One of the other discussions, we should be able to have available soon as thie discussion I had with county Supervisor Nathan Fletcher. And a candidate for county Supervisor Nora Vargas. He's running in the South Bay District runt one race against Ben Way, so Benway so did not want to participate in the debate, So I brought her on to talk with Nathan Fletcher. About what they would do as Democrats in charge of the county and at discussion. Nathan Fletcher confirm that Well, one of the first things they would do is scrapped. The county is sort of a system that's been going for several years couple decades, actually now where they just transfer The chairmanship of the Board of Supervisors as a kind of like rotating privilege. Ah, he never expected that when it came around to his turn that they would give it to him anyway. But he's going to just try to take it, I think, And so what would they do with all that power Jesse Mark's ended up rounding up a really interesting story. About what they would do, and It kind of just comes down to like. Spend more money. Spend more money is a big part of it. That's something that we talked about a lot over the last couple years, and people like Nathan Fletcher have talked about because you know they've built up these incredible reserves. People think they could use, you know, particularly when the hep a crisis hit. Um, but I thought Jesse did a great job of kind of clarifying some other issues that I hadn't really heard them. Talk about climate change and environmental justice. The county had to just toss out its climate action plan, Um last week as a result of a court order that said it was sort of like too messed up to save. So that was one thing that I hadn't heard them say that they'd focus on as much and also, you know, with Bargas on that panel, just emphasizing like, Hey, what if we cared about the South Bay? That would be interesting. So That was boosting as well. On the spend money point. I think it'll be interesting to see because a twisting the last few years this wasn't really the case, maybe say, 10 years ago. But in the last few years the question of what the appropriate spending level for the county is. Has kind of been dragged into a confusing area where the board has made the case. Not that they don't share the priorities of groups like you or outside like, you know, liberal groups that are pushing for more spending. You know, they're not saying, Hey, we have an ideological difference of opinion from you. They've said. Instead, we have a technical, a different technocratic.

Now leaving office after 25 years to candidates to replace him in the district represents the South Bay. This includes Coronado Imperial Beach National City, Chula Vista. They are current state Senator Benway So, and Planned Parenthood vice president and current Southwestern College trustee Nora Vargas, both Democrats. Senator waste so declined take part in our series, so we'll focus on trusty Vargas, who says her background will help her on the board and would have actually helped here already in 2020. If she was there during the pandemic, our district actually but personally been impacted, and I think if we would have had somebody on the board of Supervisors who have healthcare background the way I do, I think you look at things from a very different perspectives, and I would have been able to look at a couple of things definitely number one I would've from there. One advocated for additional testing sites in our communities to make sure people had access. To testing. I would have made sure that we help solve businesses of paying them and that they needed to know what happened with total funds that came down. A lot of small businesses were not able to actually apply Fredo or qualified for it. And so I would have looked abuse their family. I would have looked at it based on need and not population, but we could make sure that those that need it the most were doing it. But I'll tell you I seen in a very different face because I am the president of the governing Board of Southwestern College. And so I led the effort. With my colleague and we were able to be the first community college in the state of California to actually go online, and we were able to make sure that we kept our folks face and healthy and our students and so we make some tough decisions in partnership with the community, and we haven't had a Nout break. So I feel good about what we've done. And I think that on the board, at least because of the background that I haven't helped her Southwestern College trustee Nora Vargas, the district one seat on the county board, one of three that's up for election here.
