A free local afterschool music program will receive a 12 thousand dollar grant. The money is going to El Sistema Santa Cruz, which provides music instruction to nearly 300 students at Branciforte Middle School and Gault Elementary School.
A 2-2 vote this week, by the Hollister city council, ha s grounded the 2017 Hollister Airshow. The city generally spends about 20 thousand dollars on the annual event….and this time due to concerns over costs and other things, they failed top approve the dates of the airshow, and so it won’t be happening this coming year. It’s unclear what that might mean for other events such as the Hollister Independence Motorcycle Rally, (that is traditionally held July 4th).
A special fundraiser is being held this evening. The 2nd annual Festival Of Trees is being held at the Monterey County Fair And Event Center at 2004 Fairground Road in Monterey. Money brought in by the event is used to support many local charities such as ….Ag Against Hunger, Animal Welfare Assistance Group, The Blind And Visually Impaired Center, Community Homeless Solutions and many more….
Most California National Guard troops, who have been required to repay enlistment bonuses, won’t have to do so anymore. That’s because U.S. Secretary Of Defense Ash Carter ordered the Pentagon to stop seeking repayment of the enlistment bonuses…..unless there is evidence showing that service members “knew, or reasonably should have known” that they were not eligible to receive the money. The bonus was an incentive to serve in the military at the height of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan a decade ago. A vote in the House on the defense bill is expected by Friday, followed by action in the Senate next week.
A 58 year-old man from New Mexico died in Tuesday’s fatal crash on Highway 101. He was travelling southbound when his vehicle left the roadway south of Old Monterey Road, and crashed into a concrete culvert. He was declared dead at the scene of the early morning accident.
