Brown Vetoes School Start-Time Bill 09-20-18 16:40

Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed a bill that would have established 8:30 AM is the earliest permissible school start-time in California.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and others have recommended schools start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. to help teens catch up on sleep.

Brown sided with opponents of SB328 who said local school boards, rather than the state, should decide what time their schools open. The California Teachers Association was also opposed.

Supporters had cited research that says delaying school start times could result in better grades, attendance and graduation rates.

(PARK)ing in Monterey on Friday 09-20-18 15:25 DC

Alvarado Street in Monterey will look a bit different tomorrow as eight small parks spring up in what are normally downtown parking spaces.

The annual event – called PARK-ing (emphasis on PARK) takes place on the third Friday in September each year.

Eight parking spaces will be used during the event. Most will have city agencies showing what they do, but Jay Punkar of the Monterey City Manager’s office says two spaces will be as park-like as a parking space can be complete with green turf covering the pavement.

The fun will happen on Alvarado between Pearl and Franklin. Seaside will hold its PARK-ing event on Saturday.
