A 20 year-old man will be allowed to enter a plea Friday, on the charges against him Jacob Andrews was initially released without bail, after 31 year-old cyclist Jack Meehan was hit in Santa Cruz last October.

The F-A-A has reported that they have made progress with returning flights to the old flight path over Santa Cruz county. The move could happen within the next 2 years, and would include another change that locals might like….to have planes basically glide in to San Francisco Airport (and not use their air brakes over Santa Cruz county). Since the change to the current flight path, airline pilots descending into SFO have had to alternately brake and accelerate over Capitola, Soquel, and Scotts Valley.
An 18 year-old Soquel High School student has been sentenced to 120 days in jail, and 3 years of probation. That after Andrew Sultano pleaded “No Contest” to taking a loaded gun to school in June.
