News Network: Stockton   Stockton is at risk of becoming the biggest city in the nation to go into bankruptcy.  The city is the first California municipality required to go through mediation with its creditors under the restraints of a new law designed to protect labor unions.  But it appears mediation has failed and the Stockton City Council will have no choice but to adopt the pendency plan.  Stockton Record Reporter Scott Smith joins us with more details on the city's predicament.

Foster Youth After Graduation Many young adults living in foster homes have just graduated from high school, and with the help of a relatively new law in California those young adults can remain with their foster families for a few extra years.  The problem, though, is that there aren't enough foster families to care for these young adults, even if the law requires it.  For the next month, a group of local agencies, including the ones in Placer and Nevada Counties, will be trying to fix the problem in this area by recruiting as many adults as possible to become foster parents.  Their initiative is called "Today's Foster Parent," and joining us to discuss the importance of foster families is a woman who has cared for more than 20 foster children over the past eight years, Susan Flanagan from Lincoln.  Gail Johnson Vaughan also joins the discussion.  She's the Executive Director of Mission Focused Solutions, a Grass Valley-based foster care advocacy organization that is spearheading the campaign to recruit foster parents.
