INCIDENT IN M L NORTH HARBOR - 08/13/14 21:20 S.S.

K-S-C-O RECEIVED A CALL TODAY (WEDNESDAY) FROM THE NEIGHBOR OF A MAN WHO’S DOG REPORTEDLY DROWNED THIS WEEK IN THE MOSS LANDING (NORTH HARBOR) AREA. HE SAID A SEA MAMMAL, EVIDENTLY NOT A CETACEAN, INTERACTED WITH THE 60-POUND QUEENSLAND HEELER TO THE DOG’S DETRIMENT. IT IS NOT KNOWN IF THIS WAS INTENDED BY THE MAMMAL AS AN AGGRESSIVE MOVE, OR A PLAYFUL ONE.  Wildlife can exhibit aberrant behaviors, however, they are rare....especially interspecies ones, and even more so interspecies ones between a marine mammal and a land animal.

FALSE ADVERTISING SUIT SETTLED - 08/13/14 19:21 S.S.

A FALSE ADVERTISING SUIT HAS BEEN SETTLED BY THE OWNER OF A SEASIDE THRIFT STORE. OSCAR MALARIN, WHO OWNED AND OPERATED SAINT JUDE’S THRIFT SHOP FROM DECEMBER OF 2013 UNTIL MAY OF 2014, HAD SIGNS AROUND HIS STORE THAT STATED THAT THE “PROCEEDS WILL GO TO SAINT JUDE’S CHILDREN HOSPITAL”….BUT BECAUSE THE OWNER DID NOT SET UP HIS BUSINESS PROPERLY AS A NON-PROFIT, AND IT NEVER TURNED A PROFIT IN THAT TIME, NO STORE MONEY ACTUALLY WENT TO THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. MALARIN, WHO HAD MADE PERSONAL DONATIONS TO THE HOSPITAL, SAID HE NEVER INTENDED TO MISLEED THE PUBLIC, AND HAS SINCE RENAMED THE STORE, AND HAS AGREED TO MAKE APPROPRIATE DONATIONS TO SAINT JUDE’S CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. MALARIN’S SEASIDE STORE IS NOW NAMED “HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW”, AND IT IS SET UP AS A FOR-PROFIT BUSINESS……AND HE SAYS IT WILL STAY THAT WAY.

FISHING IN S C SCH - 08/13/14 19:07 S.S.

THE SANTA CRUZ PORT COMMISSION HAS DETERMINED THAT A STAKEHOLDER TASK FORCE SHOULD BE CREATED TO CRAFT A NEW FISHING POLICY FOR THE SANTA CRUZ SMALL CRAFT HARBOR. THAT DECISION WAS MADE TUESDAY NIGHT, AFTER AN UPDATE TO THE FISHING POLICIES FOR THE HARBOR WAS PROPOSED. THE PROPOSAL WOULD HAVE ALLOWED FOR GROUP EVENT FISHING PERMITS AND LIMITED FISHING OFF THE JETTY. BECAUSE AN UPDATED FISHING POLICY HAS NOT YET BEEN APPROVED, THE NO-FISHING POLICY WILL REMAIN “AS-IS” FOR NOW.
