A  24  year-old  man  is  in  critical  condition  at  an  area  trauma  center,   after  he  was  shot  last  night  in  King  City.       The  shooting  reportedly  took  place  on  the  100  block  of  Division  Street.      Anyone  with  any  information  about  the  incident  is  encouraged  to  contact  the  King  City  Police  Department

A  200-foot  landslide  yesterday  is  thought  to  have  exposed  the  underside  of  the  right  lane  of  northbound  Highway  17.     C.H.P.  has  posted  a  SIG  alert  in  the  area  of  Laurel Road,  and  cal-trans  has  reportedly  closed  the  northbound  slow  lane  through  that  area.   

Congressman   Jimmy  Panetta   and   Congresswoman   Zoe   Lofgren  clarified   immigration   policies   at   a  meeting   they   hosted   in  Salinas   Sunday   afternoon. The  latest information on immigration ranging from border walls  to immigration raids was provided.     Panetta   said   there have   been  no  recent immigration  raids on  the  Central  Coast.       The   meeting  was  attended   by   200   people.  

Due  to the  damage  caused  by  the  storms  in  the  first  few  weeks  of  January,  California  Governor  Jerry  Brown  has  asked  the  Federal  Emergency  Management  Agency  to  declare  a  major  disaster.      That’s  so  that  the  state  can  get  federal  funds  to  make  some  much  needed  repairs  in  the  areas  damaged  by  those  storms.  Governor Brown  estimates  that  the  public  clean-up  will  cost  more  than  162  million  dollars.   He  is  not  the  only  state  official  who  has  been  in  touch  with  FEMA.    Local  Congresswoman  Anna  Eshoo  also  told  FEMA  last  month  that  the  counties  of  Santa  CruzSanta  Clara,   and  San  Mateo  have  suffered  significant  storm  damage.

Several  people  were  arrested  early  this  morning  in  the  city and county of  Santa  Cruz  (and  in  Santa  Clara  county).  The  criminal  street  gang  arrests  were  in  connection  with  cases of  murder,  extortion,  and  narcotics  trafficking.  The  arrests  were  the  culmination  of  a  5-year  investigation.   

A  60  year-old  Watsonville  man  suffered  fatal  injuries  when  the  jeep  he  was  driving  rolled  over.   That  accident  occurred  on  the  man’s  ranch  off  of  Sillman  Road  in  the  Watsonville  area.     His  2  passengers  were  ejected  from  the  older  model  Willys  CJ  Jeep.     One  of  those  suffered  head  trauma  and  internal  injuries  and  was  airlifted  to  a  trauma  center,  while  the  other  man  was  able  to run  back  to  the ranch  to  call  9-1-1.   

The  cause  of  the  accident  is  still  under  investigation.
