SOS Meeting Agenda: 1-22-13

This week’s meeting will be Tuesday, January 22, 2013, at the Wild River Brew Pub located at 533 NE F Street in Grants Pass from 5:15 PM to 6:15 PM.

Here’s The Agenda:

1)      Uniting for Justice-Quin Collins has brilliantly rescheduled our event for First Friday Art Night on Friday, February 8, 2013! @ 5:15 PM!

2)      A Letter from Mike Vorberg

3)      TASK #4: Harry Mackin  and Toni Webb were tasked to figure out a way to get the City of Grants Pass to donate a heap of the wood chips they reportedly have in surplus to the animal shelter for its’ run areas. Mark Gatlin , Lily Morgan and Darin Fowler were challenged to get together and get that done by next week:

 “I contacted Terry Haugen, City Public Works Director, to verify if the City had any spare wood chips.  They do not.  (JoGro sells all their wood to a company in Medford that chips it and hauls it off… none stays here).  Terry did refer me to Rob Brandes, Josephine County Public Works Director.  The County reportedly has a large surplus of wood ships after the storm clean up.  I left him a message and will let you know what he says.”

Lily Morgan wrote, “Regarding the wood chips.  Appears no SOS intervention was necessary.  County Public Works had already delivered a couple of loads and the supervisor at the Animal Shelter had already contacted Rob Brandes to get more.  Rob returned my call and said they would continue to supply wood chips until the need was met.”

Thanks Rob!!! Awesome job Team!

4)      Multi-Pronged Attack to achieve our Mission: “A citizen-voiced plan to provide for a secure, stable and sustainable Josephine County.”

Merriam-Webster Definition of MULTIPRONGED

1: having several distinct aspects or elements <a multipronged attack>

6)   Update on Mr. Salvador Corona:

Salvador Corona wrote:

“Dear Archie, I has been honored by meeting you as well as by the invitation to the SOS meeting. Meeting you have not been under the best circumstances in life due to the fact of being a victim of crimes committed to my business and more so and not connected in less than a week by the unfortunate fiscal/assault/crime committed yesterday evening at plain day light time to my best friend in life, my beautiful wife, Esperanza Morera-Corona.

             As you are aware the safety security and well been of every Grants Pass citizen as well as to businesses in our city has been exposed to crime/crimes committed in the daily bases and not related a week ago today, Thursday     my business got burglarized by braking a glass door and my ATM taken away.

In regards to my wife’s assault she was taken away from the crime scene by an ambulance an taken to the local hospital for X-Rays reveling a serious injury to her left shoulder wrist knee and thumb finger nail plus cuts to her face and bruises to her left eye. She then IMMEDIATELY was taken to the emergency floor and within 30 minutes she was intervene by a team of three doctors and six nurses which, relocated her left shoulder that got miss-located as the assailant pushed her to the ground with a great force while resisting her purse successfully taken away from her.

I would like to add, the emergency procedure was not without a glish, seen my wife not coming back after the induce coma/anesthesia administered for the medical procedure was with scaring moments because she stop breading. By a direction of one of the doctors I helped the team to bring my wife back.

It was a quite of a life experience that seen my wife alive and then die before my eyes for a respiratory arrest was of a shocking experience and incredible enough just due to a crime as she was pushed to the ground with a great force.

In regards to the police I have a lot to be thankful and I will be addressing that in a scheduled meeting with the Police Chief. I learned myself that it could be his wife or any other citizen(s) the victim(s) and unfortunately in this case was my wife and the lesson learned is that the police response was extremely superb as they end up catching the assailant resulting in the arrest.

In another side of the story is that by coincidence the two police officers that arrested the two criminals that burglarized my business last week were the same officers that got involved in the yesterday’s assault case of my wife.

Therefore I would like to commend you as well as your department for the overwhelming response without knowing who was the assaulted citizen or the victim of a crime. While my wife was transported to the hospital the criminal got arrested and should add that my wife’s purse and all the contents, cash/ID/credit cards and others were accounted for as the police officers delivered her purse at the emergency room.

Once again thank you for your unconditional professional and diligent support and more than ever I would like to make a contribution to the SOS team and to tell you that I am personally committed to support any effort to make our city a safe and enjoyable place for our friends neighbors children and families to live in.”

7)      “SOS Clarifies Josephine County Law Enforcement District Research” (Jay Meredith)

8)      Methadone Clinic (Diane Hoover)

Bill LandisToni Webb and I met with State Senator Herman Baertschiger regarding the Methadone Clinic in Grants Pass last Friday (January 18, 2013) @ 9:00 AM. It was very promising. We have to coordinate a proposal by the end of this week. The following SOS Team Members are on board for this task: Gil Gilbertson, Wally Hicks, ToniWebb, Joe Henner, Diane Hoover, Bill Landis,  Erin Mateja t Felicia Cohen,  Liz Hirni, Steve Marshak 

Toni Webb wrote,

“I talked with Dr. David Gilmur (he is a physician in Medford & was a Jackson County Commissioner); he said that Dr. Jim Shames (who is the Public Health Officer for Josephine & Jackson County) runs the methadone clinic in Medford.  Dr. Shames should be able to help with writing the proposal, finding a grant writer for additional money, and giving us a budget for staffing & monitoring.

Dr. Gilmur suggested that we look into the idea of a mobile clinic, staffed with an RN and a security officer, that could travel to reach more people.  He thought that the Sheriff could deputize a security officer.  I think that we should plan a comprehensive PR campaign to reach medical personnel & raise public awareness/support.”

9)        Fireteam Report (Bill West)

Bill wrote about their recent presentation to HUGO LDS, “Great meeting, about 37 – 40 people! Lots of questions! We started at 7pm and finished at 8pm! Many questions andMary Bowers will forward them to you! We were thanked several times! Great Crowd! Gordon Edstrom organized it and pulled it off!” Awesome job Gordon!!!! (10% Presentation 90% Listening!!!)

Bill also wrote, “I went into DMV to do some personal DMV stuff and started talking with a clerk! She was telling me how busy they were due to the stealing of license plates in our area. Then she thanked me for going to the SOS meetings and being a part of that group!” Great job Bill!

10) Team Captain’s Report

Natural ResourcesJim Frick

Trust, Transparency, Education and Public Ownership and Involvement– Holly Lidey  and Bill Ertel 

State Lottery FundsCliff Thomason

Justice of the Peace CourtDavid Corsi

BIOMASSCheri Adkins

11)     Volunteer-ism (Mark Gatlin)

Mark wrote,

“I would like to try to harness some of our civic volunteer groups into a larger picture of securing our neighborhoods and streets.  Our Public Safety has a very and good long standing relationship with C-FAC as added “Eyes on the street” performing regular patrols on the weekends.  The Neighbor to Neighbor project is trying to take hold and our Neighborhood Watch programs could use a definite shot in the arm to energize the folks to actually participate.  If we can do this, we win on two fronts.  1. To actually do something tangible on the cheap utilizing volunteers and raising awareness that we all have a stake in our safety.  2.  By going forward, we silence the argument that all SOS wants is money for public services.”

“I would like to make a short statement and appeal for “support” to go forward and build a coalition of leaders of said volunteers and others.”

12)    Website Update(Frank Morin)

13)    TASKS-Doing the best you can.

TASK #1: HOW DID WE DO? We will be posting the Garcia video on our website. Herb Carter  will work with Frank Morin and Jay Meredith  to get the Garcia’s video to Ron Brown of Channel 12 News to do a Special Story. Sharon  from Channel 12 said she wanted to do an updated story on SOS and would like more information regarding the Garcia incident. Herb, Frank and Jay, would you please get with Pat Fahey to get the Garcia discs and complete that task ASAP. We also decided that we wanted a spot on the website where people can view victim stories and see such videos.

TASK #2: HOW DID WE DO? Angel and Jaime Garcia, would you please e-mail Frank Morin  your synopsis of the event to post on our website? Thanks!

TASK #3: HOW DID WE DO? On January 18, 2013, Friday at 9:00 AM in the Anne Basker Auditorium located at 604 NW 6TH Street in Grants Pass, will be the first County Public Hearing on the Taxing District.

TASK #5: HOW DID WE DO?  Bill Ertel needs to coordinate with KAJO and KMED-Bill Meyers to get us a weekly (if possible) spot on the radio. Also, Bill needs to get the radio stations to announce our weekly meetings as a Public Service Announcement via the radio! Thanks Bill!!! 

TASK #6: HOW DID WE DO?  We need an update from State Lottery Funds Captain Cliff Thomason  and Justice of the Peace Court Captain David Corsi

TASK #7: HOW DID WE DO?  Present the edited presentation to the group at the next meeting. DATE DUE

TASK #8: HOW DID WE DO?  Implement a new section to the website at the FAQ part, where anyone can type in any question. That question will be fielded, answered properly and then posted with a credible source for future information;

14)     Comments by a Local Politician

·        Determine what you want—it will most likely be the bare minimum

·        Determine how much that will cost

·        Be and act as one voice

·        Make people aware of where the .58 per $1,000 goes now and where it will go later…

·        Get a guarantee that the money raised, goes only to the Criminal Justice System

·        If get Federal Money, it goes back to the people

·        Everyone should know the price tag and what it means

Thanks for your efforts to save our home!

SOS Meeting Agenda: 1-8-13

Our Meeting this week will be tomorrow, Tuesday, January 8, 2013 @ 5:15-6:15 PM @ the Wild River Brew Pub located at 533 NE F Street in Grants Pass.

Our Agenda will be as follows:

1)      How to ensure SOS remains a Non-Profit organization without political associations? (Pat Fahey)

Re-working the SOS Presentation…

We are—our solution shall be: multi-pronged!

2)      Setting up a group dedicated to the tax district and separate from SOS (and what SOS as an entity can or can’t do, politically)

3)      Animal Shelter Stakeholders (Toni Webb)

4)      Committee Inventory

The following are our current Committee Captains:

•Sales Tax-Jay Meredith

•Private/Public Partnerships/Improved Efficiencies Toni Webb

and Laurie Norman

•Natural Resources-Jim Frick 

• Property Tax Variations-Jeff Wolf 

•Trust, Transparency, Education and Public Ownership and Involvement-Holly Lidey and Bill Ertel

•State Lottery Funds-Cliff Thomason

•Justice of the Peace Court-David Corsi

•BIOMASS-Cheri Adkins

While as a group of concerned citizens we have enjoyed some success in effecting change, we have yet to achieve our Mission“A citizen-voiced plan to provide for a secure, stable and sustainable Josephine County.”

I am asking each Captain to attend tomorrow’s meeting and give us an update on their committee and its current status.

5)      Methadone Clinic (Diane Hoover)

6)      Website Gatekeeper (Frank Morin/Jay Meredith)

Frank wrote recently: “I like the changes to the web site.  The FAQ is much more prominent, the site is much more user-friendly, and having those questions at the top of the FAQ really delivers the most important information soonest.”

7)      The issue of no patrol in a Taxing District Proposal, member comment:

“This morning I made a pitch that the Chamber needs to take an active role in supporting the district proposal and it will be brought to their Board meeting on Thursday.  Their Board has been reluctant to take political positions so hopefully it will go well as many Chamber members are impacted.

Commissioner Hare was there as well and reported no progress in renegotiating the contract with the Feds for jail beds.  I’m concerned that folks will say if the County won’t do something to help themselves why should I support more waste.  This issue needs to be resolved ASAP or it will hurt the campaign.

The issue of patrol was briefly discussed and I believe it will also hurt the District proposal as the paper is saying the District proposal does not include patrol and that is a big mistake.  I suggest a small 3 year levy for the entire County with the money collected in GP and CJ returned to them for their patrols.”

8)      Blitz Update-Fireteam Captain’s Report

1-Kimberly Gasperson

·                  City of Cave Junction Council Meeting December 10TH

·                  Rotary in Cave Junction December 18TH

·                  GP Firefighters January 2ND @ 5:10 PM

Kim commented, “Just wanted to give you a little update on how the presentation went with IAFF.  It went well. The presentation took me about 15 minutes during their union meeting.  Two of them are now planning on attending our Tuesday meetings and they are going to give us $500.  They need the information as to who to give the money to and need to verify SOS’s nonprofit status.” Great job Kim!!!

2-Bill West (Bill has been recovering from recent surgery)

Bill wrote, “There is nothing like baptism by fire! My team (Mike Waldon, Mary Bowers (ill  no show), Gordon Estrom and myself, entered the jaw of the lion! We had an interesting debate, presented our point and got out with our life!” Great job Bill… We will have to hear more about that!

6-Cheri Adkins (Recent Cancellation—Cheri wrote:

“We have been cancelled at the IV Lions Club tomorrow night January 8 due to a misunderstanding regarding what SOS is about.  Because of the district taxing issue brought up at the City Council meeting, their board thought we were all about finding new ways to tax everyone.  I advised my contact Steve Lyons to go to our website and review it.  What we are after is their input and ideas how we can get the Criminal Justice system back on track.   I advised there are several sub-committees in SOS and the district tax group is one of them and, to ask Jim Frick about us. Steve said he would talk to the board again and get back to me if they want us at the next meeting. Steve said he would talk to the board again and get back to me if they want us at the next meeting.” Great job Cheri! This is why it is so important to ensure that people know what SOS is really about!

MISSION STATEMENT: “A citizen-voiced plan to provide for a secure, stable and sustainable Josephine County.”

SOS Meeting Agenda: 12-18-12

Our Meeting this week will be December 18, 2012 @ 5:15-6:15 PM at the Newman United Methodist Church located at 135 NE B Street in Grants Pass. In the place where we normally meet, not the parlor. It will be our last meeting for the year.

AGENDA:

1) Tax District Update Grants Pass

The Grants Pass City Council voted unanimously in favor of the resolution to be included in the Law Enforcement [Criminal Justice] Service District. In deliberations, councilors cited that they had a duty to allow City residents to vote on this district if it moves forward at the County level since City residents passed the last countywide levy vote by a small margin. The also cited that the #1 duty of government is to provide for the safety of its citizens.

The Cave Junction City Council did not get a second to sustain the motion to proceed and the motion died on the table.

What does it mean?

2) Opposition and Why the BLITZ is important STILL

3) Uniting for Justice (Quin Collins) Update the event-What’s been done? Flyers! Candles? Speakers?

“And yesterday’s tragedy also makes Thursday’s gathering all the more important for us as a community to turn out in big numbers to mourn with the families and to remind our community we need to make it safer for our own kids.

This is also a good opportunity to remind our community leaders and state legislators that they need to join us as well, not just be notified about the event. SOS is hundreds strong, we should be able to do this outreach before Thursday! WHAT SAY S.O.S.?” (Mike Sanchez)

2) GP City Council and CJ City Council Support Update for Tax District (Jeff Wolf, Connie Roach and Jay Meredith)
“We need to let everyone know that the Commissioners unanimously passed our request. It will be on the agenda for the City of GP Monday at 11:45 and City of CJ Monday at 7:00 pm. Would be great if anyone who is able, come to these meetings to show their support.”
As reported earlier, the group Tuesday night (December 4, 2012) unanimously agreed by vote to push forward with a proposal for a Taxing District concept. While the specifics for the actual proposal are still being worked on, we needed to act in order to avoid missing the deadline, thereby forfeiting any chance of any type of such proposal for the May 2013 Ballot. Again, this is a work-in-progress and at this point in time, we are simply “keeping the door open” or preserving an opportunity, which we would have otherwise missed by not taking any action. Great effort and great job by all of those who participated. As with every SOS concept, we cannot express enough how open our process is and how we continue to extend an open invitation to every and anyone in Josephine County who wants to help us resolve our problem. We also reminded ourselves that this idea is only a single prong of a multi-prong solution to achieve our goal of: “A citizen-voiced plan to provide for a secure, stable and sustainable Josephine County.
———–
3) Jay Meredith, Gordon Edstrom, Toni Webb and I have been working on the website over the weekend and we are very close to having a product that I believe you will like. In the future, you will be directed to the website for Meeting Agendas, Updates, News, etc. (You will miss my 1,000+ e-mails per week…)
———–
4) KAJO reported in error last week that SOS sent the Board of County Commissioners a proposal for the consolidation of City and County services. That is incorrect and both Jay Meredith and Pat Fahey worked hard to have that report corrected. They were referring to the Taxing District concept. No worries. These things happen…
———–
5) Venues have been established for 2013. Thank you to Newman Methodist Church and to the Wild River Brew Pub!
———–
6) Date for our next event: Hands around the Juvenile Justice Center (Date/Tag Line, etc.) We will not be meeting on Christmas or on New Years. It has been proposed that in a show of unity and support, that we all get together and join hands and form a large circle around the Juvenile Justice Center. While it currently stands empty, by our presence, we will demonstrate to the community, if not but for a single moment, our commitment and resolve to restore our Criminal Justice System, and demonstrate by this single act, how our children are not forgotten. Wouldn’t it be great if we had so many people that we circled the building several times? I am suggesting a date of maybe December 20, 2012 @ 5:15 PM… What Say You?
