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?

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.
