Surfing Named California’s State Sport 08-20-2018 16:05 DC

Surfing is now California’s state sport…and it’s the law. That’s after governor Jerry Brown announced today that he has signed a bill making the proclamation.

Surfing is “an iconic California sport” the new law says, but it admits surfing was imported into California from Hawaii and originated in Polynesia.

The law claims California is the heart of the surfboard building industry…reminding us that the neoprene wet suit and surf forecasting both originated here in the Golden State. California enjoys 11-hundred miles of coastline.

Salinas PD Has New Dog 8-20-2018 17:15 DC

The Salinas Police Department has a new canine officer going out on patrol…it’s not a German Shepherd Dog or other traditional police breed. The canine, named Buddy, used to belong to an elderly man and became a comfort dog after the man died.

Buddy goes out on patrol…and once a police call calms down and everything is under control…Buddy is available for snuggles.

Buddy—who is a she—is a very calm dog, just the animal to bring comfort to officers and the community. This is a pilot program which may be expanded if Buddy is a success.
