    While there are those panhandling that do need help and are very willing to work, they're crowded by the professional panhandlers that skew the picture here in Salt Lake. I would like to see a city or regional program, high profile, that addresses the panhandling issue in the area. Have work available and visible. It's likely going to have to be government-supported, but it can both help those that want work to get back into the workforce (and remove the stigma of long-term unemployment that has caused an issue with getting back to work) and it will expose those that are simply begging as a profession or need other forms of help because of mental illness.
