Insight: Capitol Chat / CA Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise / “Medal of Honor Rag” / Peter Wayne Lewis


Capitol Chat  We'll talk with news reporter Matt Laslo who will bring us up to date on the Farm Bill, the work of the Super Committee among other news highlights of the moment.
 
DVBE  The California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) is a program set up by the California legislature in 1989 to help disabled veterans who own small businesses. We'll interview Rich Dryden, California DVBE Alliance Executive Director.  The Alliance was formed in 1994 following the establishment of the Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) program by the California legislature in 1989. The California DVBE program set a 3% goal for DVBE participation in state contracts for goods and services. It also required eligible DVBEs to obtain certification of their capabilities by the state's Department of General Services before they could participate in the program. The CA DVBE Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit, EIN 94-3211918.  
 
"Medal of Honor Rag"  About one in three Vietnam veterans suffered from full or partial Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after the war. It is estimated that over 300,000 of our returning soldiers from the Middle East will have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). "Medal of Honor Rag" by Tom Cole is a solemn true narration of one soldier's plight. It is a dramatic, haunting play.  "Medal of Honor Rag" plays weekends from October 28 through November 27 2011 in the Three Penny Theater at the R25 Arts Complex, 1721 25th Street at 25th Street in Midtown Sacramento. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2 PM.

Peter Wayne Lewis  After calling Sacramento home, artist Peter Wayne Lewis traveled and exhibited around the world. Now he's coming back and holding his newest exhibit at the Jay Jay Art Gallery.
