Insight: Sacramento's District 4 Race / Proposition 36 / Presidential Race in Reno / Vegetarian Cooking for Carnivores


 
 
Sacramento's District 4 Race The city council race for Sacramento's newly redrawn District 4, which includes Land Park, Downtown, and South Natomas, is coming down to the wire.  Steve Hansen beat opponent Joseph Yee by 75 votes out of more than 10,000 in a tight June primary election.  Hansen has shown that he has strong support in the younger Midtown "Grid" while Yee is the favored candidate among older Land Park residents.  Both candidates will have to stretch outside their base to reach unlikely supporters if they want to win.  We'll explore how Yee and Hansen are planning to unite the new district and their vision is for the future of Sacramento.

Proposition 36 Proposition 36 alter California's three-strikes law to exclude non-violent felonies.  Proponents say California's three-strikes law is exasperating the state's prison overcrowding and prop 36 will ease prison populations by reducing terms for criminals who haven't committed violent crimes.  Opponents of Prop 36 say the list of "non-violent" felonies leaves out a lot of serious crimes that could be considered violent.  For instance, hiring someone to kill another person.
