(06:40) The Bear fire grew slightly overnight, Cal Fire is reporting the fire is now 271 acres and is 5 percent contained. Mandatory evacuations have been issued for the communities  of Las Cumbres, Deer Creek, and all residents of Bear Creek Road from Hawk Ridge Road to Skyline Boulevard.   2 evacuation centers have been set up at lakeside Elementary School, 19621 Black Road, in Los Gatos and Zayante Fire Station, 7700 E Zayante Road, in Felton.

 

A  bipartisan  group  of  legislators  is  working  together  to  encourage  members  of  the  U.S.D.A.F.D.A.,  and  E.P.A.  to work  together  to  promote  innovative  new  technologies….especially  in  agriculture.     The  administration’s  interagency  taskforce  on  Agriculture  And  Rural  Prosperity  is  exploring  Biotech  Policy,  and  the  bipartisan  group  of  legislators  wants  the  administration’s  taskforce  to  come  up  with  science-based  regulations,  that  also  avoid  duplications  with  other  regulations.  

Food  insecurity  is  pretty  prevalent  in  Santa  Cruz  county.     County  officials  have  reported  that  1  in  4  children  in  the  county  goes  to  bed  hungry.    In  honor  of  International  World  Food  Day,  the  county  has  teamed  up  with  Second  Harvest  Food  Bank  and  U.C.S.C.  to  get  the  word  out  to  students  about  what  food  resources  are  available  to  them.      As  a  result,  some  people  are  learning  about  Cal-Fresh  (for  the first  time).    It’s  a  federal  program  that  gives  up  to  200  dollars  a  month  to  qualified  applicants  (for  food).

There’s   a  new  tradition  at  a hospital in Salinas.  Every  time  a  baby  is  born  (between  7  a.m.  and  10  p.m.),  a  15  second  clip  of  the  Johannes  Brahm’s  Lullaby  will  play over  the Public  Announcement  System.    The  lullaby  will  play  twice  in  a  row  when  twins  are  born  there,  and  3  times  for  triplets.     The  new  tradition  began  this  week  at  Salinas  Valley  Memorial  Hospital.  

The  Salinas  Police  Department  has  received  180  thousand  dollars  of  grant  money.   The  money  comes  from  the  California  Department  Of  Traffic  Safety,   and  the  funds  are  expected  to  be  used  for  D.U.I. Checkpoints  and  Traffic  Enforcement.     Although  amped-up  Traffic  Enforcement  is  certainly  part  of  where  the  money  will  go,   Educating  The  Public  is  another  focus.  

THE  SANTA  CRUZ  COUNTY  OFFICE  OF  EMERGENCY  SERVICES  SAYS  THAT  ALL  COUNTY  WEBSITES  ARE  DOWN  DUE  TO  A  CONSTRUCTION  ACCIDENT  TODAY.  RESIDENTS  ARE  ASKED  NOT  TO  CALL  DISPATCH  OR  THE  OFFICE  OF  EMERGENCY  SERVICES.    COUNTY  OFFICIALS  HAVE  RECOMMENDED  CHECKING  FOR  UPDATES  ON  THE  BEAR  FIRE  BY  LISTENING TO KSCO,  OR  GOING  ON-LINE TO:  SantaCruzCountyFire.com
