What do you feel is the most ignored issue in the county at the moment?

LocalTAlk_mitchelHNo rights for single fathers. My experience is that the women get the full choices without the father being able to speak their pieces. I think it's a one way street when it comes to that. That's my experience.

LocalTAlk_mickHHomelessness. Help provide jobs for people, and give them treatment if they’re addicted to drugs. Jobs, security,  a sense of belonging and community. I understand a lot of people pass through here, it being a the tourist area, and I'm not from here originally, but I want to stay so to do that you have to be able to work.

LocalTAlk_royI think the job opportunities for young people that are just getting out of high school or college are few and far between now, and it's really rough for kids to get started with their first jobs. I think getting into the work place is a really big issue.

Also Mr. Helmel you have another kid in Davenport, Iowa that you're not paying child support on & the grandmother is raising it on her own without any financial support from you. You owe me about $10,000 in back support, plus current charges. Looks like you'll be paying child support even after your kids turn 18 cuz you're so far behind. The child support recovery unit in Iowa are looking for you, just like Californa is. You haven't changed one bit, you're still messed up in the head. However, you do look like you aged a lot & have more wrinkles on your face, but your stringy messed up hair still looks the same. Anyway, you need to keep it real & be honest to everyone out there that you don't support your kids & you're a deadbeat!!!!!!!

Child Support, that's the most ignored issue. But then Mr. Helmel, you should know all about that one, right? You already owe around $10,000. I'd like to know when I'm going to receive it. It looks like you're doing pretty good with your telemarketing or "advertising" job I should say. So where's the child support? Huh, Mr. Helmel?

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
