Every year Scotts Valley High School students create a haunted house that is open to the public – children especially -- with all of the proceeds going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
KION reports that this year it looked like the haunted house would have to be cancelled, but a group of about 100 students worked all summer to create a COVID-19 safe haunted house.
The students created a drive-thru haunted house that opens tonight. Tickets are $13-$22 per car-load of Halloween celebrants.
The Scotts Valley Haunted House opens tonight and is open this weekend and next weekend. You can purchase tickets online here.
A Monterey County man has been sentenced to 22 years and 8 months in prison for the forcible rape and sodomy of a family friend, an intellectually disabled woman.
Last April, the victim’s caregiver overheard her on the phone promising the man, 61-year-old Robert Cabral Salazar, that she would keep their secret, so the caregiver called the woman's aunt.
During September, Salazar pleaded guilty to forcible rape, forcible sodomy and dissuasion of a victim. He also had a previous strike conviction from 1987 for forcible rape in Stanislaus County.
In addition to prison time, Salazar is required to register as a sex offender for life and have no contact with the woman.

You can see the turkey on the KION website.
