The un-official “Mayor Of Alvarado Street” in Monterey has died. Mike Marotta, Sr is said to have passed away peacefully at home on Sunday at the age of 98. He was born in 1921 during the Warren Harding Administration, and played the accordion with his band at Monterey Airport, when Senator Robert Kennedy visited Monterey in 1968. “Pops” Marotta performed at more than 70 festivals, and told his kids (Mike Marotta, Jr. and Judi), that he might not be the best accordion player, but he wanted to be the best performer....someone who put smiles on people’s faces. His kids said he certainly did that with his friendliness, music and stories.....and that they “definitely hit the parent lottery with him”. Funeral services for the un-official mayor of Alvarado Street, Mike Marotta Senior, are slated to be held on December 7th....starting at 2 p.m. at Cypress Community Church in Monterey.

Today (Thursday) is World Pancreatic Cancer Day which seeks a cure for a disease with only a 9-percent survival rate after five years. KSCO’s David Coursey is a pancreatic cancer survivor and shares these warning signs, one of which may have saved his life.
“Part of the reason for the low survival rate is that most patients are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer only after cancer has progressed significantly. By that time, patients may survive for only weeks or months.
“Important warning signs include stomach pain, mid-back pain, unexplained weight loss, nausea and loss of appetite, indigestion, changes in stool, and new-onset diabetes. And last, there is jaundice in which my yellow skin and eyes led doctors to diagnose pancreatic cancer when my tumor was still small and had not spread.”
KION Television reports that the suspect in the stabbing death of a pregnant woman in Salinas has now been charged with a second count of murder.
The suspect, 43-year-old Garrett Scheff, is accused of attacking 26-year-old Mariana Jurado on Tuesday morning as she was leaving for work.
The sister-in-law of Jurado confirmed to the TV station that Mariana was two months pregnant.
