VALLEY FEVER. Thousands of people in California, Arizona and the Southwest are being diagnosed annually with Valley Fever, and many thousands more have the lethal disease but find it hard to spot it. Some say the infection has swelled into epidemic proportions. Airing from the San Joaquin Valley, epicenter of the disease, LÃnea Abierta speaks with the mother of a patient, an epidemiologist comments on the problems doctors face to detect and treat the disease, and a journalist who has been covering the story reports on the fast rise of the number of cases and the widespread lack of awareness about Valley Fever. This program is produced in partnership with the Reporting on Health Collaborative.
Guests: Valerie Gorospe, Mother of patient, Delano, CA; Richard RÃos, Epidemiologist and Program Manager, Merced County Department of Public Health, Merced, CA, www.co.merced.ca.us; Yesenia Amaro, Healthcare reporter, Merced Sun-Star, Merced, CA, www.mercedsunstar.com.

VOTER FORUM: WILL THE GIANT WAKE? As the November elections approach, some political campaigns are counting on mega-donors and super PACs. In contrast, others are anxiously awaiting the awakening of the âsleeping giant:â the Latino voting bloc. Itâs still not clear though how many Latinos will actually turn out to vote. In the first of a series of community consultations, LÃnea Abierta holds a live two-hour forum in the Mission Neighborhood of San Francisco. In this first hour, political analysts discuss the importance of the Latino vote, and local voters have a chance to answer: What are the most crucial problems of the community? Who do they hold responsible for these issues? Who do they trust for a solution? The forum is broadcast live from the Eric Quezada Center.
Guests: Teresa Carrillo, Chair, Latino and Latina
Studies Department, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA, www.sfsu.edu; Isabel GutiÃ©rrez,
Vice President, Producer, and Co-Host of Hecho en California, KIQI, San
PROGRAM # 6779 1:00 PM PT
SECOND HOUR OF VOTERS FORUM: In the second hour of a live forum to take the pulse of the Latino vote, in San Francisco's Mission District, political analysts, community organizers, and residents discuss the most important issues for Latino voters in California. Some state propositions have the potential to mobilize the Latino vote in the state, including the proposition that raises taxes on the highest earners to avoid more budget cuts, one that limits campaign contributions, and one that eliminates the death penalty, among others.
Guests: Belinda Reyes, Director of the CÃ©sar E. Chavez Institute and Assistant Professor of Raza Studies, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA, www.sfsu.edu; Laura Melgarejo, Community Organizer, People Organizing to Demand Environmental & Economic Rights (PODER), San Francisco, CA, www.podersf.org.
