A 2nd African Blackfooted Penguin Chick has hatched at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The new chick joined it’s sibling Tuesday in the Penguin Exhibit in the “Splash Zone – Ocean Homes” Family gallery after the first bird became the first of it’s kind to be hatched on exhibit 2-days earlier. The first penguin chick, now 6 days old, is said to be doing well weighing about 8 ounces. The 2nd chick, as of today, weighed just over 3 ounces, and is said to remain in it’s nest for approximately 3 weeks or until it starts wandering on it’s own. Officials at the Monterey Bay Aquarium say both infants are fragile and they predict introduction into the exhibit at the aquarium will be slow.

An interest rate for Tenant Security Deposits was approved for 2011 by Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors. The new rate of .06% entitles a tenant in unincorporated areas to 60-cents for each $1 on deposit for a full 12-months. The interest is due at the end of 2011 or earlier if the tenant moves from the property before year-end. Both Watsonville and Capitola councils eliminated an interest requirement for 2011, and Scotts Valley has no interest requirement.
