Once  again  local  health  departments  are  warning  people  to  be  very cautious  about  which  wild  mushrooms  they  gather  and eat.     That’s  because,  as  usual  (once  it  starts  to  rain  on  the  central  coast,  and  mushrooms start popping  up  all  over  the  place),  local  hospitals  have  seen  an  increase  in  the  number  of  cases  of  mushroom  poisonings.  Health  officials  recommend  that  people  who  experience  abdominal paincrampingvomiting, and/or  diarrhea  (after  eating  wild  mushrooms) seek  medical attention….because  that  type  of  poisoning  can  lead to  death.

The  light  exhibit  known  as  Lumination  will  be  staying  at  Gilroy  Gardens  for  a  little  while  longer.    The  exhibit was  supposed  to  end  in  November,   but  is  now  expected  to  stay  there  into  the  new  year.      Gilroy  Gardens   will  remain   open  from  6 -10 p.m.   most  evenings  between  now  and  when  Lumination  closes  January 8th.    For  more  information,  people  are encouraged  to  either  call  Gilroy  gardens,  or  go on-line  to  GilroyGardens.org

The  city of  Salinas  has  won  a  10-million  dollar  grant  to  help  increase  the  area’s  water  supply.    The  money  would  be  used  to  get  Pure  Water  Monterey  up and  operational.    It’s  a  collaborative   effort  to  take  different  water  sources  (such  as  agricultural  run-off,   storm  water   and  produce  wash  water),   and  put  them  through  a  4-step  advanced  purification  process.  The  purified  water would   then   be   injected  back  into  the  local  groundwater  basin.   Once  P-W-M  is  working  at  capacity,    it’s  expected  to  be  able  to  supply  35-hundred  acre-feet  of  drinking  water,   and  an  additional  44-hundred  acre-feet  of  water  for  agricultural  uses.

A  Santa  Cruz   man  has  pleaded  not  guilty  to  3  felony  charges  related  to  the  making  and  selling  of  the  L-S-D  that  15  year-old  Luke  Smith  allegedly  took  before  he  stabbed  his  father  and  uncle  (in  Corralitos).     28  year-old  Nathaniel  Trecaso  is  scheduled  to  return  to  a  Santa  Cruz  County  court  room  January  11th,  for  a  preliminary  hearing  on  those  charges.    Smith  was  killed  in  an  officer-involved  shooting  that  took  place  after  he  refused  to  put  down  the  knife  (he had  reportedly  used  in  the  stabbing),  and  kept  advancing  toward  law  enforcement  officers.     That  shooting  is  still  being  investigated.
