In fact, we have already filled one of their key administrative positions," she said. The agency is currently tak- ing applications for positions at Ray's Food Place, including store clerks, checkers, meat cutters, cake decorators, etc. All of the agency's fees are paid by the employer--no fees are ever charged to the applicant. The History In November of 1992, Pamela J. Kimball joined the firm as a full partner. She was a job devel- oper for Pacific Career Center, a division of Goodwill Industries, and worked closely with the Department of Rehabilitation and the Private Industry Coun- cil. Management Connections be- came affiliated with a national temporary help agency, Work- load, Inc., based in New Orleans, LA in February, 1993. "We have another office in Ukiah at 564 S. Dora Street. This office is managed by Tracy Scoggins, former Classified Ad Manager at the Ukiah Daily Journal," Mary Jo said. The agency has a third office in Eureka, which it sold in 1995. "We are, however, still affiliated with them in that we payroll our temporary construction laborers through this office," she said.

The main office is located at 202 Commercial St. Proposal would tack on extra punishment for gun usage By Attorney General Dan Lungren "Gun control" and "crime con- trol'. As a nation, and especially here in California, we have been grappling for years for answers to the gun violence that has plagued our streets. We know that criminal street gangs deal in drugs because it's lucrative. Gang bangers also feel that carrying a gun is unlikely to get them into serious trouble with the law. What most law- abiding citizens do not know-- but criminals do--is that actually using a gun in the commission of a crime often only tacks on an additional one year penalty to the sentence for the underlying crime. While we've toughened some sentences for specific gun- related crimes, that's not much of a deterrent. As I have traveled the state in my six-plus years as Attorney General, I've been engaged in countless discussions--some- times, debates--on the issue of gun-and crime-control. On one far side of the spec- trum are those who feel that the Constitution's Second Amend- ment prohibits any restriction on who can buy a gun, or on the kinds of guns that can be legally sold. They argue that you ought to be able to have a bazooka on the hood of your car, if you like. On the other extreme are those who would relegate the Second Amendment to the ash heap of history and ban all gun owner- ship, period. Most of us fall somewhere in between these two extremes, as I do. Yet in my experience, al- most everyone agrees that those who choose to use guns in com- mitting crimes deserve our most serious attention. That is the idea behind the "10-20-Life" proposal currently before the California Legfslature. Fresno businessman Mike Rey- nolds, whose loss of daughter Kimber at the hands of a .357- wielding murder led to enact- ment of California's enormously effective "Three Strikes  law, has again presented lawmakers a simple formula to put real heat on criminals with guns. The "10-20-Life" measure, As- sembly Bill 4 by Assemblyman Tom Bordonaro (R-Paso Robles), would automatically add 10 years to the sentence of anyone who uses a gun in the commission of most felonies. If the gun is dis- charged, 20 extra years are add- ed to the sentence of the underlying crime. And if the criminal injures someone with that gun, and added 25-years- to-life sentence will be tacked on to the base penalty. This is, quite simply, the tough- est gun-abuse control measure in the nation. It places our prio- ries where they ought to be: Squarely on those who commit serious and violent felonies with guns. A few weeks ago, I joined Mike Reynolds, Assemblyman Bor- donaro, law enforcement officials and victims of violent crime at the State Capitol to urge the Sen ate Public Safety Committee to approve this measure without watering down its strong terms. As I told reporters that day, I was less concerned that the leg- islature would kill the bill out- right; rarely are tough crime bills voted down in the light of day anymore. I was more concerned that the Committee would "do a Tyson" to the bill, that is, take a piece out of "10-20-Life," and leave it less than whole. Fortunately, the members of the panel passed AB4 unmolest- ed. It still contains all of its tough provisions. Though the bill still faces hurdles, we are more en- couraged than ever that this com- mon-sense attack on gun violence will become law. Common sense is not lost on even the most violent criminals. As one former gang prosecutor and now-judge in Los Angeles County said, "I believe tougher sentences for criminals who use guns will go a long way toward deterring not only the use of, but the possession of, firearms dur- ing the commission of serious crimes. This is my idea of gun control--being ruthless against the most violent offenders in our society." Mike Reynolds understands that simplicity of our crime laws mean a better understanding among violence-prone criminals of the consequences of their be- havior, should they get caught. It is largely the simplicity of the "Three Strikes  law that has caused thousands of formerly active felons in California to de- cide to embark on other, less incapacitating, career paths. The "10-20-Life  gun violence law will have the same effect. All we need to do is give it a chance to work. And in the process, maybe weql find that there is at least one very important part of the gun debate upon which we can all agree.
