THIS WEEK in Northern California Previous Broadcasts

January 25, 2013 (Episode #2415H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jan 25, 2013 -- 7:30 PM

Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
News Panel:
STATE OF THE STATE: Gov. Jerry Brown delivered more good news in an upbeat State of the State address, thanking lawmakers, voters and others for making tough decisions to balance the budget. The governor described his long term vision for revamping education funding and revising the state's environmental law. He also promoted the construction of high-speed rail and a controversial plan to build tunnels to transport water from north to south.
OAKLAND CONSULTANT STIRS CONTROVERSY: The Oakland City Council approved the hiring of police consultant William Bratton after a heated meeting that drew hundreds from the community and lasted more than 9 hours. Previously chief of the LAPD and NYPD, Bratton is known for aggressive tactics, including the highly controversial "stop and frisk" policy which has raised concerns over civil rights and racial profiling. Oakland is the most violent city in the state, with a 23% increase in serious crime in 2012.
APPLE EARNINGS: Apple Inc. reported a $13 billion profit in the fourth quarter of 2012, bringing last year's total profit to over $40 billion. But the maker of the highly popular iPads and iPhones found investors still hedging their bets, with a marked drop in the price of the company's stock.
Guests: John Myers, News10 KXTV ABC Sacramento; Matthai Kuruvila, San Francisco Chronicle; and Jolie O'Dell, VentureBeat.
SFJAZZ CENTER OPENING: The new SFJAZZ Center opened this week to rave reviews with all-star performances and celebrity appearances, including Bill Cosby. Hailed as the first stand-alone hall in the west exclusively for jazz performance and education, the venue features a 700-seat auditorium with a state of the art sound system. The center, located in the Hayes Valley neighborhood in the heart of the city's arts corridor, will draw big name acts as well as support local musicians and school groups.

January 18, 2013 (Episode #2414H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jan 18, 2013 -- 7:30 PM

Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
NEWS PANEL:
With preparations underway in Washington, D.C. for Monday's historic Presidential Inauguration taking place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Obama administration took a shot at federal gun control policy. Comprehensive immigration reform is also being tackled, with the Republican Party looking to expand its reach to the increasingly diverse electorate. KQED's Scott Shafer reports from Washington on how California lawmakers are hoping to guide legislation.
Guests: Scott Shafer, KQED Public Radio; Carla Marinucci and Debra Saunders, San Francisco Chronicle.
GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN - In an exclusive interview, Gov. Brown talks about his plans for shaping California's future. With a balanced budget in hand and the bold declaration that the state's prisons are no longer in a state of emergency, he talks with PBS NewsHour correspondent Spencer Michels about what's next: better funding for schools, improving gun control, and pushing through high speed rail and water projects. The governor also deflects the notion that he's thinking about his legacy.

January 11, 2013 (Episode #2413H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jan 11, 2013 -- 7:30 PM

Guest Host: Valerie Coleman Morris.
NEWS PANEL:
CALIFORNIA BUDGET - Gov. Jerry Brown's new state spending plan eliminates the deficit in the coming fiscal year, projects future surpluses and increases public education funding.
STATE PRISONS - Declaring an end to the prison overcrowding crisis, Gov. Brown called for federal authorities to return oversight to the state. Meanwhile, a 2011 court-ordered population cap of about 110,000 prisoners has not yet been met.
OIL TANKER ACCIDENT - The pilot of an oil tanker that sideswiped a Bay Bridge tower Monday had a record of other accidents. While no oil appears to have been spilled, the collision was a stark reminder of the disastrous 2007 Cosco Busan accident, and raised concerns over the environmental impact of massive tankers on the San Francisco Bay.
Guests: Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News.
CONVERSATION WITH ASSEMBLY MEMBER NANCY SKINNER - A new bill to regulate and track ammunition in California is one of several legislative proposals being pushed in the wake of the mass shooting in Newton, CT. On Monday, Assembly member Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) unveiled a so-called "bullet bill" that would require the licensing of ammunition sellers and the creation of a state justice department registry to track sales.
