Take A Look At Some Local Flooding

Local News

Although  the  recent  rain  doesn’t appear  to  have  done  lots  more  damage  to  area  roads,   it  has  slowed  down  work  on the  hiking  trail  through  the  canyon  below  the  now  demolished  Pfeiffer  Canyon  Bridge.      The  switch-back-styled trail,  which  will  take about 30 minutes to  traverse  once it’s  complete,   starts  as  part of  the  pine  ridge  trail  at Big Sur Station,  and  then  splits of  near the  bridge.     Work  began  on  this  trail  March  9th.

A  25 year-old  man  was  stabbed  in Santa  Cruz  today.  The  11  a.m.  incident  took  place  on the  1200  block  of Soquel  Avenue.  The  victim  was  being chased  before  the  stabbing.  A  Good  Samaritan  took  the  injured  man  to  the hospital,  where  he  was  listed  in stable  condition.   This  incident appears  to be  gang-related.

 

A Santa Cruz county Superior court judge is working to determine whether 17 year-old Adrian Jerry Gonzalez’s probation report will be made public.   He is charged with the murder of Maddy Middleton in July 2015.    The charges against him include a special allegation of lying in wait, which supports the possibility of life imprisonment in adult cases.   Proposition 57 (which passed in 2016) gives the courts the jurisdiction to determine whether, in some cases, a minor can be charged as an adult.  At this time, there is no public record for Gonzalez because he is a juvenile.   The judge is expected to make his ruling at a hearing this Friday afternoon.

 

(10:00) Santa Cruz - The City of Santa Cruz wants the communities help with updating the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan.  City officials are requesting that those who live and/or work in Santa Cruz fill out a survey to help plan for natural disasters.  Responses to this survey will help city officials evaluate what the major concerns are amongst community members, as well as how prepared people are for the next natural disaster.  It will also help the city to determine how best to mitigate the effects of natural disasters before they happen.  The Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update for 2017-2022 can be found on surveymonkey.com.


 

(09:45) Big Sur - Checks were sent out Monday to help those impacted by the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge Closure.  As of yesterday, the Community Foundation for Monterey County had received $165,000 in contributions to its Big Sur Relief Fund and the Coast Property Owners Association had collected $82,000 in donations.   The new bridge is expected to cost 20 million and will take 6 to 9 months to build. 

(08:40) Santa Cruz - The Santa Cruz Police Department relaunched the Chief’s Advisory Committee yesterday.  The panel provides a forum for discussion and presents the Chief with a diverse spectrum of viewpoints represented by community members.   The Chief’s Advisory Committee further creates an avenue for greater understanding between police and community and promotes public input into the Department’s policies, strategies, and priorities.   The Santa Cruz Police Chief’s Advisory Committee consists of local leaders in the field of homelessness, mental health, education, faith, social justice, as well as neighborhood, business and community leaders.   The panel will meet monthly starting next month (April).  Positions on the Chief's Advisory Committee are voluntary and unpaid.

(06:20) King City - Authorities reported that two shootings in less than eight hours took place yesterday in King City.   Police are investigating if the shootings are related and if they are affiliated with gangs.    The first shooting took place at King City High School.  An 18 year-old student was shot around 11:00 a.m. while he was sitting in the school parking lot.  2 gunmen are still being sought.  The second shooting took place at Silver Saddle Motel on Broadway Street.    Three juveniles were shot while standing outside the motel; one victim is in critical condition.  Two people have been detained from the evening shooting, but police are still looking for a third suspect.  Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the King City Police Department.
