Possible Name Change 11/21/17B 19:40 S.S.

The  Monterey  County  Board  Of  Supervisors  is  expected  to  consider  whether  a  spot  in  Salinas  should  be  re-named.    “Confederate  Corners”  is  just  off  Highway  68,  and  due  to  a  number  of  incidents  around  the  country,  some  local  residents  feel  it  would  be  safer  to  change  the  name.    Since  the  area  is  surrounded  by  agricultural  fields,  some  people  think  a  good  name  would  be “campesino  corners”  because  ‘campesino’  means  ‘farm  workers’  in  Spanish.    Others  want  a  more  ambiguous  name,  while  still  others  would  prefer  to  keep  the  historic  name.
