Some parents in the Alisal Union School District are objecting to the appointment of a state trustee to oversee the operations in the district. Parents formed the community group several years ago, and say they have been working to vote out failing school board members, as well as encourage better test scores. The state appointed a trustee earlier this year, after continued low-test-performance by students in the district. Some parents, however, say the move is too little, too late, and say the financial cost is too high.

An earthquake struck southern California last night, following a series of smaller quakes over the weekend. The magnitude 5.7-quake struck just before 9:30 p.m., about 85-miles east of San Diego. The earthquake is believed to be an aftershock of a magnitude-7.2 quake that struck the area in April. So far, no serious injuries or damage have been reported.
2-separate drive by shooting incidents occurred in Watsonville over the weekend. The first incident occurred early Saturday morning, when shots were fired from a passing vehicle at a house on the 200-block of Carey Avenue. The next morning, another shooting occurred at 4 a.m., this time on the 100-block of Marigold Avenue. Nobody was injured in either incident, although at least 1-bullet did enter the house in the 2nd incident. Police have made no arrests, and believe the shootings are gang-related.
A Gilroy liquor store was held up at gunpoint on Sunday night. Just after 11 p.m., a man wearing a black ski-mask entered the store on the 7-thousand block of Monterey Street, and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk gave the man an undisclosed amount of money, and fled the scene on foot. Police have not located the suspect.
Yesterday(mon), the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors voted to reduce funding to non-profit organizations for the upcoming fiscal year, however the cuts are less than had been proposed. Supervisors had been considering cutting the 3.4-million dollar allocation to the county’s 48-supported non-profits by as much as 20-percent. A preliminary cut of 12-percent was instead agreed upon. Santa Cruz County is facing declining revenue for the 3rd year in a row. 20-percent cuts to the Health Services Agency and Human Services Department were agreed to, as were smaller cuts to the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s office. All the proposed cuts are scheduled for a final vote on June 24th. Supervisors are scheduled to continue working on budget matters all this week, as they try to close a 17-million dollar deficit.
