School field gets Funds 7/28/10 TDH

A Santa Cruz school has won a lottery to receive a low-interest construction bond from the federal government.   Branciforte Middle School officials plan to use the 2.3-million dollar bond to renovate the school's athletic field.   The bond is being given through the Federal Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  It allows Santa Cruz City School District to pay back the money at less than 1-percent interest, over 17-years.  That amounts to annual repayments of about 18-thousand dollars a year.  The school competed with others that have projects considered "shovel ready."   Over-hauling the athletic field has long been on Branciforte Middle School officials' wish list.

Farmer overtime vetoed 7/28/10; 11p.m. TDH

Governor Schwarzenegger today(wed) vetoed a bill that would have changed overtime laws for state farm workers.   The bill would have given farm workers time-and-half pay for any work done after 8 hours in a day, and 40 hours in a week.   Farm workers currently receive overtime pay after working 10 hours a day, or 60 in a week.    There had been mixed reaction to the bill, with supporters saying the 1941-era law is far outdated, and farm workers deserve overtime when most other employees receive it.  However some feared employers would simply cut workers' hours, ultimately costing them money.
