Local News

A  man  helped  a  shark  get  back  in  the  ocean  today  at  Live  Oak  Beach.    The  shark  is  believed  to  have  been  washed  ashore  by  the  big  waves.     The  man  saw  the  shark  flailing  in  the  sand,  pulled  it  back  into  the  ocean,  and the  shark  swam  away.

Temperatures  were  reportedly well  above  100  degrees  in  Pinnacles  National Park  today.   It  was  the  6th  day of  the  recent  heat  wave.    Rangers  recommend  that  hikers  pace  themselves,  and  carry (and drink)  plenty  of  water.

The  former  Fort  Ord  is  being  used  as  a  place  to  test  ‘drones  as  delivery  vehicles’.    The  company doing  the  testing  has  a  licensing  agreement  with  the  city  of  Seaside  to  test  the unmanned  aircraft.   The drones  are  larger  than  the  standard  quadcopters,  and  use  sensors  (and  software)  to  detect  other  objects  in  the sky.  

Salinas  City  Council  members  voted  last  night  to  approve  a  “Welcoming  City”  resolution,  just 4  months  after  they  rejected  the  idea  of  being  a  Sanctuary  City.   

Stay tuned for more information on this story….

An  internal  investigation  (of  a  recent  officer  involved  shooting  in  Salinas)  is  now  looking into  what  might  have  been  inappropriate  actions  taken  by  a  Monterey  county  sheriff’s  deputy….who  is  also  a  Salinas  city  council  member.     Scott  Davis,   who  was  not  authorized  to  take  part  in  the  Salinas  Police  Department’s  Chase  that  preceded  the  shooting,  reportedly  threw  down  a  spike strip.     The  strip  disabled  not  only  the  suspect’s  vehicle,   but  a  Salinas  police  officer’s  patrol car  as  well.

People  who  witnessed,   or  have  information  about,  a person  being  hit  by  a  vehicle  early  Saturday  morning  in  Salinas  are  being  sought.     The  17  year-old  boy  (who was  hit)  is  still  in  critical  condition  at  an  area hospital.     That after  he  was  found  near  the  apartment complex  at  the  intersection  of  North  Davis  Road  and Larkin  Street.      Anyone  with  information  about  the early  Saturday  morning  accident  is  encouraged  to contact  the  Salinas  Police  Department.
