New cell phone app to find your lost dog

            SOLANO COUNTY—A new social-media app designed to connect owners with their lost dogs is available through the Solano County Animal Care Division.

Finding Rover is a free service that uses facial recognition technology, and allows owners to look at the site from their phones, tablets, computers and other devices for their lost dogs. It also allows the public to take photos of dogs that appear to be lost and upload information that will help owners locate their dogs.

The dogs can be pre-registered, so if at some point they are lost and found, then the owners are notified by phone or email. It even reminds owners for the need to renew information about their pets to keep the profile current.

The county animal shelter website already has photos of lost pets posted. The new software will automatically link those profiles with Finding Rover. The service can also be used for someone who may be looking to adopt a dog.

The county also offers microchipping services, with which a chip is inserted into the animal, and if found, can be scanned and relocated with the owners.

Right now the Finding Rover technology is only applied to dogs, but it is being worked on for cats as well.

For just $5 Vets can get acknowledgement on drivers license

            Solano County’s 33,500 veterans and the 11,000 veterans in Napa County are now eligible to receive a driver’s license acknowledging their service in the United States Armed Forces, through a new statewide program.

Beginning Nov. 12, the Department of Motor Vehicles will be issuing driver’s licenses with the word “veteran” on them to those who qualify, Napa and Solano County officials said.

Napa veterans can visit the Napa County Veterans Service Office (CVSO), at 650 Imperial Way in downtown Napa, and complete the DMV application.

Veterans will need a certified copy of their discharge papers (DD-214) showing they received anything other than a dishonorable discharge or that they served in a Guard or Reserve component and were mobilized for federal active duty.

            Solano County vets can stop by the Solano County Veterans Service Office for an official application form, which they can take to the DMV starting Nov. 12 to get the new veteran driver’s license. Solano County Director of Veterans Services Ted Puntillo asks that vets bring a copy of their DD-214 paperwork to get the form.

            The new driver’s license means veterans will no longer need to carry their discharge papers to show proof of military service, officials said.

            The CVSO will verify the documents and approve the application, which can then be submitted to the DMV. There is a $5 fee to have the veteran designation placed on a driver’s license, on top of the normal renewal fees, officials said. Veterans who are not due for renewal can obtain a new license for a $35 replacement fee.

The CVSO can order copies of discharge papers. Veterans who visit the office can also discuss their eligibility for federal, state and local benefits. To date, Solano County Vet Services has already helped more than 100 vets obtain the application form, officials said.

            For more Napa information, call 707-253-4558. In Solano, call, (707) 784-6590. Contact Rachel Raskin-Zrihen at (707) 553-6824.

Great Idea: Put Price Tag on Ballot Measures

By Jon Coupal President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association

Would you commit to buy a car, a house or even a jacket without knowing the price? Unless you are a member of the one percent, chances are, you want to know what it will cost you before you make a purchase.

But what about ballot measures that can cost every citizen hundreds or even thousands of dollars?  At the state level, the Legislative Analyst’s Office has the responsibility to provide a “fiscal impact” analysis – that is, information to voters as to the costs to taxpayers of passing a proposition.

But this isn’t currently required at the local level. And those backing attractive sounding, but costly, measures like it that way. They prefer to keep the public in the dark. If a county measure promises to create new parks in every neighborhood, it may sound great, but taxpayers should know what it will cost them before they cast a vote.

Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do deserves credit for proposing a measure that would require a cost analysis by the county’s Auditor Controller for all county initiatives, and his colleagues deserve praise for agreeing to place it on the June ballot for voter approval.

The big question is why every local tax raising entity is not required to provide a non-partisan cost analysis for their sponsored ballot measures as well as those placed on the ballot through the initiative process.

Skeptics say that requiring a cost analysis might deter voters from approving a worthy measure, for example one relating to public safety. This argument was dismissed by Supervisor Todd Spitzer, who pointed out that voters are much more likely to vote no on an ill-defined ballot measure if they are not told what it will cost.

In our country we are going through a political process where the public is expressing its support for plain speaking. There is resentment toward members of the political class who equivocate and use insider terms that many find confusing.

So let’s be blunt. A significant number of local ballot measures are designed to provide an advantage to those inside government, including politicians, bureaucrats and other employees and/or special interests. Requiring a non-partisan analysis would provide voters, who will be stuck with the bill, another tool to evaluate a ballot measure. They can then do a cost/benefit analysis, the same as they would do before making a major family or business spending commitment.

So while Supervisor Do should be thanked for promoting openness in government, why  are there so few of our local representatives throughout the state taking a similar stand for full disclosure to voters of the full cost of measures they are asked to approve?

Jon Coupal is president of the Howard Jarvis  Taxpayers Association — California’s largest grass-roots taxpayer organization dedicated to the protection of Proposition 13 and the advancement of taxpayers’ rights.
