The founder of Dementia Caregiver Resources, Karen (Karle) Truman, saw her own beloved mother, grandmother, aunts, mother-in-law, and other relatives stricken with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Lewy Body dementia. These are terrible mind-robbing and physical decline disease processes. When her mom started going to an Adult Day Care Center in 1992, she was asked to start a support group for the 40+ families whose Loved Ones also attended. This changed the course of her life, and she then made it her mission and passion to find resources, veterans support, critical services, placement info, grief, and a place to vent all of the caregiver emotions that will bubble up throughout the caregiving journey.

The Happiest Corruption: Sleaze, Lies, & Suicide in a California Beach Town This is insider crime history — my account of politicians, government officials, developers, contractors, and cannabis kings who operate a criminal machine that streams through my small county, bankrolled by public funds, campaign donations, and pallet loads of cash generated by the most valuable crop in the nation. As the mayor of a friendly little beach town, my story should be a happy memoir. Instead, it evolved into a sinister citizens-turned-spy suspense epic of bribery, extortion, dark money, and death. How could the beach and vineyard paradise that Oprah called the ‘Happiest City in America’ be riddled with corruption and be legendary with the FBI? I heard whispered stories, sat at board room tables behind closed doors, and had access to people and facts that others do not. In THE HAPPIEST CORRUPTION you will: Journey alongside determined citizens finding government misconduct and learn how you too can spot and fix it.Be inspired by the courage and tenacity of ordinary people who saved their communities and established good government.Know a government con when you see one and know why you know it.Find out how to beat city hall at its worst and be city hall at its best.Most important of all, you will be equipped to make sure your town doesn’t become the next Happiest Corruption in America.
