A known gang member was arrested by a Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s deputy yesterday (Thurs).  A deputy patrolling Soquel Avenue pulled over Stephen Simmons at the 76 gas station.

The  smoke  from  a  14-acre  Prescribed  Burn,  being  conducted  in  Henry  Cowell  Redwoods  State  Park, is  being  seen  as  far  north  as  Ben  Lomond.    The  Burn  is  being  done  in  an  area  off  of  Graham  Hill  Road near  the  campground,  and  its  part  of  the  long-term  strategy  to  reduce  the  threat  of  wildfire.    This  burn  is  also  designed  to  help  maintain the  rare  Sandhills  Habitat  in  the  area, because  it  relies  on  fire  to  maintain  a  healthy  eco-system.

The  Beaver  Fire,  burning  in  San  Benito  county,  has  burned  215  acres  and  is  now  65  percent  contained.   The wildfire  is  burning  not  far  from  where  the  airline  and  eastern  fires  burned  last week.

A  new  summer  concert  series  in  Pacific  Grove  is  scheduled  to  begin  tomorrow  evening  and  run  through  Mid-July.   The  concerts  are  being  hosted  by  the  Pacific  Grove Chamber  Of  Commerce,  and  are  slated  to  take  place  between  5:30  and  7  p.m.  both  Friday  and  Saturday  evenings.    They’ll be held  at  the  Lovers  Point  Beach  Café,  beneath  the  beach house  restaurant  at  620  Ocean  View  Boulevard.

The  full  list  of  dates  and  performers  is  on-line  at:  


Some  local  commercial  salmon  fisherman  are concerned  that  they  won’t  be  able  to make  a  living  this  year,  with  the  Salmon  Season  cut  down  to  just  19  days.     The  first  half  of  the  season  was  in  early  may,  while  the  second  half  will  be  the  last  2  weeks  of  this  month.   The  recreational  salmon  fishing  season  is  longer,  running  from  April  7th  through  July  2nd…..but  both  seasons  are  shorter  than  usual.

In  the  first  quarter  of  this  year,  the  numbers  of  cases  of  Whooping  Cough  more  than doubled  in  Santa  Cruz,  over  the  2017  numbers.     County  health  officer  Doctor  Arnold  Leff  said  that  Pertussis  is  covered  in the  D-taP  shot  given  to  babies  that  are  2  months, 4  months, 6  months  and  12  months-old….and  then  they  are  given  booster  shots  again  before  kindergarten  and  middle  school.  Whooping  C ough  often  starts  with  a  mild  cough,  runny  nose,   or  fever,  it  tends  to  move  on  to  vomiting, exhaustion, and  paroxysms  of  rapid  coughs,  followed  by  the  high  pitched  “whoop”  sound.  About  50  percent  of  babies  who  get  whooping  cough  will  need  to  be  hospitalized.  For more  information,  people  can  call  their  local  physician  or  go  on-line  to: 


With  the  numbers  of  new  blood  donors  shrinking  every  year,  the  American  Red  Cross  is  encouraging  those  who  have  not  given  recently,  or  who  have  never  given  blood….to  make  a  life-saving  donation.   When  any  type  of  blood  (A, B,  or  O)  is  missing  from  hospital  shelves,  patient  care  can  be  impacted.   

5  teens  were  arrested  yesterday,   after  they caused  a  fire  on  Larkin  Valley  Road  while  driving  in  a  stolen  vehicle.    Shortly  before  the  vehicle  was  found  fully  engulfed  in flames,  it  had  been  involved  in  the  hit-and-run  of  another  vehicle.    The  teens  were  taken  into  custody  as  they  tried  to  flee  from  the  burning  vehicle.
