Supporters of Measure Z are calling on Monterey County officials to join an appeal challenging a judge’s decision to allow new oil drilling. In December, a Monterey County Superior Court judge overturned Measure Z’s ban on underground oil wells and wastewater injection. Last month, Monterey County Supervisors reached an agreement with oil company advocates to not join an appeal of the judge’s decision. On Tuesday, members of Protect Monterey County, which supports the measure, voiced their concerns in front of county Board of Supervisors. County officials are looking to avoid the potential of paying millions in legal fees challenging the decision, leaving the appeal efforts to the advocacy group.

The Presidio of Monterey saw a change of command Tuesday. Col. Gregory J. Ford is taking over command of the active military installation and replaces outgoing commander Col. Lawrence T. Brown.

Although  full  containment  was  achieved  Monday  on  both  the  513-acre  Eastern  Fire  near  Bitterwater,  and  the 1314-acre  Airline  Fire  (that  are  still  burning  in  San  Benito  County),  a  new  fire  began  yesterday  (very  close  to  where  the  Airline  Fire  broke  out  last  week).     As  of  8  p.m  last  night  the  Beaver  Fire  had  burned  250  acres  east  of  King  City,   and  firefighters  had  been  able  to  get  about  20  percent  containment of that wildfire.

If  all  goes  as  expected,   Highway  1  at  Mud  Creek  is  now  expected  to  re-open  by  the  end  of  July….2  months  ahead  of  schedule.    That  new  section  of  Highway 1,  which  will  include  embankments,  and  netting,   will  go  across  the landslide  that  dumped  more  than  6  million  cubic  yards  of  dirt  and  debris  on the  roadway,  and  changed  the  shape  of  the coastline.     After  that  section  of  Highway  1  re-opens  to  the  public,   there  may  be  occasional  closures   as   the  roadwork  continues.
