County Board Chair consulting with the sheriff and head of Health and Human Needs threatening to cut TRC’s funds. Yeah. That’s right.

Ugh, vacation, followed by a funeral, and a fundraiser for TRC tonight, sorting out how to make homeless storage work starting Nov. 1 and tiny house village weeks away from opening have made blogging difficult.
