Clint Olivier is in for Bill Manders.
There are some in the city of Fresno that want to regulate cell phone towers. No way! How can we claim we are business friendly when we do something like that? When I see cell phone towers, I see money. I see commerce.
The veterans home in Fresno finally opened for the public. Lots of pomp and circumstance and dignitaries were on hand today. Joining me in studio was vets advocate and American Legion member J.D. Bennett. We talked about readjusting to civilian life and serving in the military. The Legion has a project called Operation Comfort Warrior to help out returning vets.
J.D. recommends anyone, not just veterans, to let politicians know they support vet and should take care of them.
Hopefully they won't waste money at the Fresno Vet's home like they did in Yountville.

Fellow councilman Oliver Baines joined the show. We talked about how hard it is to vote on some issues that their constituents disagree with. We also talked about the national debt and the vote this week. Baines commended congress' vote saying we need to be responsible as a nation. This rankled many of the listeners.
Assemblyman Jim Patterson (R-Fresno) also joined the show. We talked about bus rapid transit, prevailing wages and the strategy Republicans can use in Sacramento.
Today's Manders on the Street with David Taub asks veterans what they think of their commander-in-chief.
