Truckee Police responded, along with USFS Arson Investigators, and quickly determined it was an intentionally set fire. There were no natural causes that could explain the starting of the fire (lightning or similar) and several witnesses had seen juveniles running from the area of the fire. The investigation revealed these juveniles were actually running to their parents to report the fire; however investigators were able to determine one juvenile was likely responsible for setting the fire and had fled the area at the same time.

Truckee Police and an arson investigator with the Truckee Fire Protection District continued the investigation and identified an 11 year old juvenile who was responsible for intentionally setting the fire (name not released due to age). The juvenile was not cooperative when originally interviewed, but did admit to setting another fire 2 days prior in the same area that was put out by a neighbor.

Based on the circumstances surrounding the investigation, the multiple fire starts by this juvenile, and the potential threat to public safety due to the location, the juvenile was booked into Nevada County Carl F. Bryant Juvenile Hall on charges of Arson of a Forest Land and Possession of Arson related items. At the time of the fire, winds were light, but they pushed the fire in several directions allowing it to spread rapidly. Sgt. Womack with the Truckee Police said that while our area has received significant precipitation this past winter, the new growth is quickly drying out and allowed this fire to spread very rapidly. Several fire personnel on scene spoke about how they were surprised at how fast this fire spread and the good fortune that USFS personnel were near-by when the call was received and able to quickly respond.

As we move forward towards summer, temperatures are expected to rise at the end of this week, bringing the first summer heat wave to the area according to reports from NWS Reno. This will start to even more significantly impact fire issues in the area. While we often think of wildland fires as more of a late summer issue, some of the largest fires in recent years have been in the month of June. Sgt. Womack reminds everyone to be fire safe year round.

The Town of Truckee has a Municipal Ordinance that prohibits fires, including campfires, on property of another without permission and prohibits any fires that are dangerous. As Sgt. Womack noted, even a campfire at the wrong time of the year, under the right conditions could fit this definition of dangerous. While we all want to enjoy the good times associated with the mountains and rural environment said Sgt. Womack, we have to remember safety comes first. Some of California’s largest wildland fires have been the result of unattended campfires that escaped and caused large scale damage.

The Truckee Police is continuing to follow-up on the Henness fire. Anybody with information is asked to contact the Truckee Police Department at (530) 550-2323 or Sgt. Womack at rwomack@townoftruckee.com . Nixle users can also leave anonymous tips of the NIxle system through the Nixle tips feature.]]>

Nation’s First LGBT Adult Homeless Shelter Opens in San Francisco http://j.mp/1Wup6pK http://j.mp/1Wup6pK#comments Tue, 31 May 2016 00:00:33 +0000 http://www.calhealthreport.org/?p=19056 By Linda Childers

The National Coalition Against Homelessness says violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons in homeless shelters is all too common. They report that members of the LGBT community typically have a greater difficulty finding shelters that accept and respect them, and are at a heightened risk of violence, abuse, and exploitation compared to their heterosexual peers.

Sometimes the best medicine for a veteran is the company of another veteran http://j.mp/1XKhmPv http://j.mp/1XKhmPv#comments Mon, 30 May 2016 17:14:12 +0000 http://yubanet.com/life/Sometimes-the-best-medicine-for-a-veteran-is-the-company-of-another-veteran.php
For veterans and their families, that sentiment of remembrance is felt year-round. Many veterans suffer lifelong anguish over the loss of their brothers and sisters in arms. For them, Memorial Day is a day like every other day – a day they remember those who died at war.

This shared grief is just one way some veterans are affected by their military service. Veterans are also molded by military culture – a unique set of values, traditions, language and even humor. Military culture has unique subcultures, but it has enough consistency across different branches, ranks and time periods to make most veterans feel a kinship.

Recognizing this kinship has led veteran service and health care organizations to encourage veterans to build trusting relationships and support each other. Researchers have learned that veterans are more likely to share personal information and ask advice about many things, including health care, from fellow veterans. That’s why the VA offers employment to veterans as peer specialists.

I’m a mental health services researcher at the University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work. I focus on increasing the availability of social supports and improving the efficacy of mental health treatment options for veterans and their families. Last year I had the opportunity to study the Texas-funded Military Veteran Peer Network, a statewide program that provides peer-to-peer support in 37 communities.

My research supports the idea that veterans are an important resource who can be trained to support fellow veterans in need. What’s more, I’ve learned that civilian care for veterans can be improved when civilians are trained in military culture. The MVPN offers military-informed care training to civilian providers and law enforcement personnel throughout the state.

Understanding the need

The bond that soldiers share can help them stay mentally strong.143d ESC/flickr, CC BY
Mental health issues are acute for a significant number of veterans.

As many as 25 percent experience some form of mental health concern, such as depression. The VA reports that veterans have a higher risk of suicide compared to the U.S. population.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is another well-known concern. Estimates of the prevalence of PTSD vary widely due to the variety of study samples and assessment tools. A conservative measure suggests PTSD affects eight percent of service members returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Veteran peer support shows promise in addressing these common mental health issues. An example is the Vet to Vet program, a VA program developed by Moe Armstrong, a decorated Vietnam War veteran, in 2002. Research has shown that veterans who receive peer support have greater levels of empowerment and confidence, improved functioning and reduced alcohol use compared to those who didn’t receive peer support.

Researchers are increasingly understanding the value of incorporating veteran peers into health care teams. Given the large numbers of veterans returning from prolonged combat, the documented shortage of trained behavioral health providers to treat mental health problems, overly long wait times for treatment and stigma felt by veterans regarding seeking help, veteran peer support offers great promise in improving treatment outcomes.

While peer counseling is not new – it was formally recognized in the 1970s –
its value in treating veterans has gained recognition since President George W. Bush’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, which was released in 2003.

President Barack Obama has also seen the value of peer support. His Executive Order 13625 of 2012 sought to improve access to mental health services for veterans, service members and military families by including the hiring of peer specialists. As of 2015, the hiring of peer specialists has exceeded the goal set in the executive order. In 2015, President Obama renewed his support by calling for more peer support as part of the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act.

Research on the role of veteran peers has shown their positive impact in assisting homeless veterans to transition to housing.

There is early evidence that veterans charged with misdemeanors and arraigned in Veteran Treatment Courts receive invaluable support from veteran peers throughout their probation and treatment for mental health, substance use problems and receive help with housing, transportation and employment.

These are two among many other areas that veteran peers are providing effective supports.

Getting civilians into the act

The mental health care provided by civilians for veterans can also benefit from lessons learned from these veteran-driven programs.

Understanding the unique culture shared by military members and their families can be a daunting task for Americans who have not experienced the military lifestyle. Given the volunteer nature of our armed services and the historically small size of our current force, this culture is familiar to only a small proportion of American citizens. Instead of assuming this cultural gap cannot be breached, we are learning the powerful impact that civilian health care professionals can make when they become trained in military culture and practice military-informed care.

Research efforts are underway to understand how to best train practitioners to better understand the clinical impact of this cultural competency. Research can assess, for example, whether this knowledge can help improve veterans' engagement in care, increase their treatment completion and improve their clinical outcomes.

The VA has hired 800 peers as of 2013 with 100 more planned annually. In addition to Texas, New York, Michigan and California, as well as Canada and the United Kingdom, have veteran peer support programs.

Although most of us can never truly understand what war is like, we can honor all veterans, including those who didn’t make it home, by valuing the special knowledge and connection that veterans bring to bear in therapeutic care settings. By prioritizing veterans’ experiences and knowledge, we can build a society that promotes real healing and a respectful homecoming.

INDIANAPOLIS May 29, 2016 - Alexander Rossi wrote his name in the history books in the most amazing of ways, winning the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.

Running dangerously close to running out of fuel after streching his 18.5 gallons of ethanol for 36 laps, Rossi all but coasted the final lap but still crossed the finish line 4.4975 seconds ahead of teammate Carlos Munoz to win the historic running of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." It was the first Verizon IndyCar Series victory for the rookie in his sixth race and he is the first rookie to win the Indianapolis 500 since Helio Castroneves in 2001.

Rossi, in the No. 98 NAPA Auto Parts/Curb Honda, inherited the lead on the 197th of 200 laps on the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval when Munoz stopped for a splash of fuel. The Californian slowed his pace dramatically his final four laps. His last lap averaged 179.784 mph, nearly 40 mph slowed than Munoz's final circuit, but he still had enough momentum to take the checkered flag.

“Unbelievable, unbelievable,” team owner Michael Andretti said. “They did a great job with strategy."

All the race leaders stopped for fuel and tires on Lap 164. One by one, they were forced to make late stops for splashes of fuel, including Munoz in the No. 26 United Fiber & Data Honda on Lap 196. Everyone waited for Rossi to follow suit, but the 25-year-old never did. He ran out of fuel on the cool-down lap and coasted to a stop in Turn 4.

“To get a 1-2 finish is great,” Andretti said. “We’re just so happy. It’s so awesome.”

Josef Newgarden finished third, followed by Tony Kanaan, Charlie Kimball, JR Hildebrand, pole sitter James Hinchcliffe, Scott Dixon, Sebastian Bourdais and Will Power.

Verizon IndyCar Series points leader Simon Pagenaud saw his three-race winning streak come to an end, finishing 19th.

Ryan Hunter-Reay, who won the 2014 race, led the most laps (52), but finished a disappointing 24th after a number of problems, including a Lap 115 pit road incident when Townsend Bell bumped Helio Castroneves, spinning Bell into Hunter-Reay in the process.

Pagenaud’s teammate, defending Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya’s day ended early when he lost control of his No. 2 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet and hit the wall exiting Turn 2 on Lap 64 in a single-car incident.

“The car felt good and then it just stepped out of nowhere,” Montoya said.

Montoya becomes the third defending champion to finish last the following year. The others were Jimmy Bryan in 1959 and Johnny Rutherford in 1977.

A number of drivers were involved in pit road incidents, including Will Power, Castroneves, Bell and Hunter-Reay.

Sage Karam, in a one-off deal for the 500, tried to get around Bell, only to hit the Turn 1 wall hard on Lap 94, ending Karam’s day.

“I’m more bummed than hurt,” Karam said. “It just seemed like I could run through anyone. I’m so disappointed. Just wrong place at wrong time. Just wish I hadn’t of gone into Turn 1 like that.”
