Memo shows how state caved to industry pressure on pesticide, environmentalists say

October 11, 2011
Environmentalists and others have been saying for nearly a year that the state caved to industry pressure when it approved the use of the pesticide methyl iodide at levels more than 100 times higher than its own scientists recommended. Now a newly uncovered memo written by an official of the company that makes the pesticide shows that the firm gave managers in the Department of Pesticide Regulation calculations they could use to overturn the conclusions of state scientists and an advisory panel convened to review their work. Robin Urevich has the latest in this unfolding story.

Counties consider public option as part of healthcare reform

October 10, 2011
As California begins to build a new health benefits marketplace that will be part of federal health reform, counties are debating whether to allow their public health insurance programs to be among the plans offered to consumers.

San Diegans unite to fight chronic disease

October 9, 2011
Chronic disease -- heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and others -- afflict nearly half of Californians and account for a big share of health care costs. But medical professionals believe much of that cost could be eliminated with better prevention and better management of chronic disease once it strikes. In San Diego, competing health care systems are coming together to launch a united front against chronic disease. One audacious goal: to make the county a heart-attack and stroke-free zone. Matt Perry has the story.

Using tech to battle STDs

October 2, 2011

By Matt Perry

As public health budgets are slashed, and money for sex education and outreach evaporates, California public health officials are slowly introducing new technologies including texting and computer-based training to combat climbing rates of STDs.

Don’t call it a prison release – or a panacea

September 29, 2011
California’s prison realignment is a confusing process, but state officials want to make one thing clear. While the prison population is being reduced starting next week, California isn’t actually releasing any prisoners early. Instead, they are shifting responsibility for "low level offenders" to the counties, which have historically had responsibility for this type of inmate. But that doesn't mean that prison realignment has solved California's criminal justice problems. “In the old days," one expert says, "we used to call this ‘put the money on the stump and run.’”

Brown: Prisons give state ‘healthiest damn criminals in the world’

September 21, 2011
Gov. Jerry Brown said Wednesday that California’s prison system, under pressure from the courts, has focused on turning inmates into “the healthiest damn criminals in the world” but has done little to make them less likely to commit another crime after they leave custody. County sheriffs, probation officers and others at the local level could do a much better job if given the funding and the authority to supervise low-level offenders and try to rehabilitate them, Brown said. The Democratic governor, speaking to a gathering of 500 local law enforcement officials, heralded the Oct. 1 beginning of a new program to shift responsibility for 34,000 inmates from the state to the counties.
