Local News

(10:00) Central Coast - According to the National Weather Service, California received 25 percent of its average annual rainfall in just 11 days.  The central coast has three new systems approaching this week. Wednesday and Sunday are expected to bring 1 to 2 inches of rain in the lower areas and in the Santa Cruz Mountains those numbers are expected to increase.  The Uvas Reservoir in Gilroy and Loch Lomond Reservoir in the Santa Cruz mountains are currently over 100 percent capacity.  Santa Cruz Public Works is advising residents in areas that are prone to flooding to pick up sandbags.  

(09:00) Marina - Environmentalists, scientists and activists came together yesterday (Monday) morning to protest the Cemex plant in Marina.  Ten months ago the California Coastal Commission ruled that sand mining operations violated state regulations.  A recent study shows that the Cemex has doubled their mining without notifying the coastal commission.  Protestors like Save Our Shores and the Surfrider Foundation are concerned that if sand mining doesn’t stop that sand will become a depleted resource and coastal erosion will affect Highway 1.  The California Coastal Commission is working with Cemex to negotiate a settlement.

(08:00) Santa Cruz - 1 northbound lane on highway 17 will be closed today.  Caltrans will be installing a net wall near vine hill road in an effort to prevent further rock slides.  The northbound slow lane will be closed between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.   Motorists can expect delays up to 15 minutes.   For lane closure information on this project and for traffic updates on other Caltrans projects in Santa Cruz County, residents can call the District 5 toll free number at 831- 423-0396.

 

(07:15) Aptos - A secondhand store in Aptos has donated 275-thousand dollars this year to children’s local programs.  The founder of Caroline’s Thrift Shop, Christy Licker, has donated over 1 million dollars to 19 local nonprofits since she opened the store in 2010.  Licker was inspired to open the nonprofit thrift shop after her daughter, Caroline Licker, died in 2007 at the age of 16 from complications related to scoliosis surgery.  Licker’s daughter was cared for by local organizations such as, Children’s Hospice and Palliative Care, Hospice of Santa Cruz CountyJacob’s Heart and Special Parents Information Network. Caroline’s Thrift Shop consists of furniture, art, clothing and jewelry and is located at the corner of Trout Gulch Road and Soquel Drive in Aptos.
