The cause of the fight is still under investigation.  Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Scotts Valley police Department.

After  22  years  on  the  bench,  a  Monterey County  Superior  Court  judge  says  he  is  planning  to  retire  next  week.   Superior  court  judge  Albert  H  Maldonado  plans  to  return to private practice  while  he  determines  what  he  wants  to  do  next.  For the majority of his judicial career, Maldonado has been assigned to criminal matters.   Prior  to  becoming  a  judge, Maldonado  served  in  the  U.S.  Army,  receiving  a Bronze Star, and a Vietnam Service Medal.

There  are  a  lot  of  pregnant  Harbor  Seals  in the  Monterey  Bay  Area  right  now,  and  people  keep  going  into  one  of  the  rookeries, even  though  it’s  cordoned  off  for the  pupping  season.    The  off-limits  area,  that  has  often  been  disturbed  recently  (even  leading to the  abandonment  of  2  Harbor  Seal pups)   is  the  Hopkins  Beach  Rookery  near  Pacific  Grove.   Along  with  staying  out  of  the  rookeries,  people  are  asked  not  to fly drones  over  them.  Disturbing the  Harbor  Seals,  either  on the  ground  or from  the air,  is  a Federal  Offense.

The  last  chunk  of  the  Pfeiffer  Canyon  Bridge  has  finally  fallen.     The  next  step will  be  to  get  the  chunks  of  bridge  (and  other debris)  out  of  the  canyon  below.  Crews  at  Mare  Island  are  working  to fabricate  the girders for  the  new  320 foot-long bridge.  The  pieces  of  the  new  column-lesssingle-spansteel  plate  girder  bridge ,are expected  to start  arriving in  Big  Sur  in  May,  and Cal-Trans  hopes  to have  the  new  Pfeiffer  Canyon  Bridge  completed  in  September.

A  16  year-old  boy  was  shot  twice  in  Santa  Cruz earlier this week,  in  what  appears  to  have  been  a  gang-motivated  incident.      The  drive-by  shooting  occurred  on  the  2200  block  of  Delaware  Avenue on Monday.    The  teen  was  air-lifted  to  a  Bay Area  trauma  center.    Anyone  with  information  about  this  shooting  is  encouraged  to  contact  the  Santa Cruz  Police  Department.

Although  the  recent  rain  doesn’t appear  to  have  done  lots  more  damage  to  area  roads,   it  has  slowed  down  work  on the  hiking  trail  through  the  canyon  below  the  now  demolished  Pfeiffer  Canyon  Bridge.      The  switch-back-styled trail,  which  will  take about 30 minutes to  traverse  once it’s  complete,   starts  as  part of  the  pine  ridge  trail  at Big Sur Station,  and  then  splits of  near the  bridge.     Work  began  on  this  trail  March  9th.

A  25 year-old  man  was  stabbed  in Santa  Cruz  today.  The  11  a.m.  incident  took  place  on the  1200  block  of Soquel  Avenue.  The  victim  was  being chased  before  the  stabbing.  A  Good  Samaritan  took  the  injured  man  to  the hospital,  where  he  was  listed  in stable  condition.   This  incident appears  to be  gang-related.
