a-1571415107 Oct 18, 2019 09:11 AM Pedestrian Struck on Highway onramp This summer there were much fewer panhandlers on Las Positas, and none of the old regulars. I think CHP must have warned them off. Last summer was horrendous -- old gentlemen standing bareheaded in hot hot weather, and people bringing them water and giving them enough money that they didn't need to panhandle for the rest of the day. These are shoes you don't want to walk a mile in, but they have to and it's a hard hard life. Most are handicapped by diabetes, there is no housing, it's nice to treat them to a motel room for a night once in awhile. It is impossible with this administration to get newly onto the disability rolls.
