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. The ceremony to welcome Ford was held Tuesday. The Presidio houses the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center.

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.

A  32  year-old  woman  was  arrested  after  she  led  Santa Cruz  County  Sheriff’s  deputies  on  a chase  through  the  Santa  Cruz  Mountains  on Monday.     Samantha  Vetter  is  believed  to  have  broken  into  a  home  on  the  8-thousand  block  of  Highway  9,  before   deputies  arrived  and  she  fled  in  a  vehicle  she  stole  from  the home’s  garage.     She  was  later  arrested  in  the  Happy  Valley  area  of  Santa  Cruz,  after  she  went  door-to-door  there  asking for  gasoline  for  her  car.  Vetter  faces  a  variety  of  charges  that include  burglary  and  vehicle  theft,  as  well  as  being  a  felon  in  possession  of  a  firearm,  and  carrying  a  loaded  firearm.

Another  woman  faces  a  charge  of  assaulting  an  arresting  officer.    This  time  the  arrest  was  in  Soquel,  and  was done  by  a  C-H-P officer.     Rochelle  Sherman  tried  to kick  out  the  windows  of  the  patrol  car,  and  when  the officer  returned,   she  spit  at  him.     Although  she  was  taken to  Dominican  Hospital  first  for  a  medical  clearance,  Sherman  was  booked  into  Santa  Cruz  County Jail.

Motorists  are  being  reminded  (yet  again)  to  remain  extra  alert  when  driving  through  any  of  the  more  than  900  active  construction  projects  being  worked  on  statewide.     This  reminder  comes  after  a  contract  worker  was  hit  and  killed  today  in  southern  California.  Motorists  are  also  reminded  that  State  Law requires  them  to  move  over  a  lane  (when  that’s  safe  to  do);  or  to  slow  down  when  approaching  vehicles  that have  flashing  amber  warning  lights.
