It’s one of the 17 U.S. cities most likely to be a top destination for trafficking victims. No city wants to be on that list but the work of Stacey Cramer, The Salvation Army and its partners is trying to resolve that.

“Everyone laughed at Noah but he’s the only one who had a plan”

In October our news was full of coverage about a recent downpour that created mudslides and flash flooding along the “Grapevine” – the highway that connects California’s central valley to Los Angeles. The flooding claimed at least one life and created significant property damage.

Unpaid tickets – often the 1st stop on the road to financial ruin

What happens when someone can’t afford to pay their tickets? If they can’t pay the fine, their unpaid tickets mount up and their license is suspended or their car is towed to an impound lot.
