California’s recent enactment of public employee pension reform could lead to the state losing billions of federal dollars for public transportation. It’s a funding cut that would be felt first in smaller communities like the Monterey Bay Area.
This Saturday, for the first time nine law enforcement agencies on the Monterey Peninsula, from Carmel to Marina to the CHP, will join together for an anonymous gun buyback. The program is being coordinated by the Seaside Police Department. Police Chief Vicki Myers said the idea did grow out of the deadly shooting late last year at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, but perhaps not how you think.
