Half the inmates in California’s Juvenile Justice System are about to be sent home, but not because they’ve served out their sentences. We’ll also hear why the cost of re-building will be so much more than it was after the last big fires.

Making News San Diego Rebuilding Costs to Soar 11 MIN, 23 SEC

As they do after every round of wildfires, thousands of victims are promising to rebuild, but that will be more expensive than it’s been in the past.  Since San Diego’s Cedar and Paradise fires in 2003, the cost of residential construction has been going up by as much as 35 to 45 percent.

Main Topic Bill Would Send California Juvenile Offenders Back to Their Counties 12 MIN, 40 SEC

Half the inmates in California’s Juvenile Justice System are about to be sent home—but not because they’ve served out their sentences. Non-violent offenders are spending 23 hours a day in their cells without the rehabilitation and treatment the law provides, and they end up more troubled and dangerous than when they went in.  Now, it’s up to the counties to try to do better.
