Ralph Bailey said that he couldn’t remember the last time he had four guest in a single show, and what a show it was Thursday.
Leading with Bakersfield Police Department Sgt. Ryan Kroeker, Bailey discussed the shooting death of 5-year-old Kason Guyton, who died in a February drive-by shooting on California Avenue. Bailey, along with American General Media and Tejon Ranch, have helped raise more than $10,000 to help fund additional reward money to find the suspect in the shooting. On Thursday, the Bakersfield Police Department announced there is a possible witness to the shooting. All told, there is more than $20,000 in reward money through the Secret Witness Program and the FBI. Here’s Kroeker’s interview:
Later in the show, Michael Turnipseed, executive director of the Kern County Taxpayer’s Association, discussed several topics including the drama in Washington, D.C. around the potential repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
Kern County Supervisor Mike Maggard and former Foothill High School football coach Ned Permenter visited with Ralph about the Foothill High School Hall of Fame.
In one of the final segments, Assemblyman Vince Fong (R-Bakersfield) discussed his efforts to improve transportation funding.
