OFF-SHORE - The 60-day comment period is open on President Obama’s plan, that would ban Offshore Oil Drilling (off the coasts of California, Oregon and Washington). It would block all new oil drilling in federal waters until 2022. The U.S. Secretary of the interior, Sally Jewell, said the plan is consistent with the west coast’s opposition to oil and gas development off the coast.
SANTA CRUZ/CAPITOLA - The Polar Express excursion, from Santa Cruz to Capitola, won’t be coming across the Capitola Trestle Bridge as expected this Friday…..even though many people have already purchased tickets for the ride. In fact, the hour-long ride was sold out when the train operator said the gallery cars did not arrive on time to make the trip. The Polar Express P-R firm is now trying to re-book guests on a later trip.
NATIONWIDE - The U-S-D-A is stressing the importance of food safety this holiday season. As such they have announced several resources they encourage people to take advantage of. There’s a meat and poultry hotline at:
1-888-mphotline, that’s 1-888-674-6854
On thanksgiving day itself people will be available from 0500 – 11 a-m
Another resource is: AskKaren.gov where there will be a food safety expert from 7 a.m. Until 1 p-m pacific time Monday through Friday. Some other tips are: don’t wash the turkey, frozen turkey’s take 24 hours for every 5 pounds of weight to thaw, and are best thawed in the refrigerator, a cold water bath or in the microwave, use a meat thermometer, do not store food outside (even if it’s cold outside), properly refrigerated leftovers should be good for up to 4 days.
SALINAS - 2 people died in a solo-vehicle crash in Salinas early Sunday. 20 year-old driver Osvaldo Garcia, and his 24 year-old passenger Daniella Perez, were pronounced dead-at-the-scene after Garcia lost control of his car on East Alisal Street near Front Street, and it hit the center median, and then slid across both lanes and into the support pillar of the train bridge there.
WATSONVILLE - The teen, who was shot and killed Saturday, after he stabbed his father and uncle and threatened Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Deputies, is believed to have been suffering from an adverse reaction to L-S-D at the time. Although deputies tried firing weighted foam rounds, and a taser, and deploying a k-9 officer, they ended up resorting to firing a single lethal round when 15 year-old Aptos High School student Luke Smith charged at them while brandishing the same knife he had already used to critically injure his family members. Therapists were on hand at the high school today. Four people have been arrested on suspicion they sold Smith the controlled substance.
