Morning Report: Five creative ways to help the homeless, experts ponder ways to tackle the problem, personal story of a collective failure, another look at aid-in-dying death, and a San Diego song inspires our scribe to Penn a real-life tale.
Section 8 housing vouchers are supposed to give needy people access to places to live. But these days, they’re mainly giving people anxiety instead of a path to a better future. “Housing vouchers are a critical tool for housing low-income individuals and families,” reports Maya Srikrishnan. “But in San Diego, where the housing market is becoming …

East Village is hot. The downtown neighborhood has transformed into a hotspot for sports fans and bookworms, families and hipsters, builders and businesses. But much of East Village’s grit remains, and so does something else: The ever-present homeless people who either wander the streets or settle into tents on the sidewalk. But there weren’t always …

Welcome to East Village, the front line of San Diego’s homelessness crisis. Street homelessness is up countywide but the problem is growing at a particularly rapid clip here. The neighborhood’s homeless population has spiked nearly 80 percent in the last year alone.

SDPD recorded 11 encroachment arrests 2011. Arrests grew to 23 in 2012 and 76 in 2013. As of Aug. 4, there had been 64 arrests so far this year. Tickets issued for encroachment violations – a lower-level version of the same offense – show a similar increase.
Police records show arrests and citations for encroaching on a public space have soared over the last five years. One of the attorneys who sued the city in 2004 over excessive homelessness enforcement believes police are using encroachment to circumvent the settlement in that case, which allows homeless folks to sleep in certain public spaces from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.

Every year, across San Diego County, hundreds of subsidized preschool spots go unfilled. And because those seats are intended specifically for qualifying families, schools don’t offer them to interested parents who exceed the income cap. They simply sit empty.

In the weeks since District 4 City Councilwoman Myrtle Cole said black-on-black crime justified racial profiling by law enforcement, a split has emerged in the community. Younger advocates have called for her resignation, while established community leaders have urged reconciliation.

Housing vouchers are a critical tool for housing low-income individuals and families. But in San Diego, where the housing market is becoming increasingly competitive for people of all income levels, people offering vouchers instead of cash are struggling to compete. People who spent years on a waiting list now have a housing voucher that would cover all or most of their rent, if only they could find someplace that would take it.

It’s something public officials and advocates like to say a lot: Homelessness is not a crime. But that doesn’t mean homeless folks in San Diego don’t get punished for certain things directly related to being homeless. Over the last five years, arrests and citations for “encroachment” – when a person encroaches on a public space, …

When journalists have asked District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis about her connection to José Susumo Azano Matsura, the Mexican citizen charged with illegally funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to San Diego political campaigns, she’s consistently said she knows very little about Azano. “What is clear to me is that there is nothing that suggests that I’ve done anything wrong …
