Golden State Killer, Central Valley Sinking, Erosion of Beach's, & More
By Mark & Patti Clifford • Issue #196 • View online
It’s Sunday, July 15th. Happy National Ice Cream Day. Get your ice cream now!
Today’s newsletter is packed. Packed with stories, videos, and a brand new layout. It’s a little longer than usual, but heck we’re excited! They won’t all be like this! 
Let me give you a quick rundown of the new categories:
Off the 5 - Considering Highway 5 is the main drag from southern to northern California we felt this would be a great title for all of the news inland.
From the 101 to the 1 and Beyond - is all about the coastal communities and the ocean around them.
Legends from California - Is about just that. Legends (people, places & things) that have made an impact on our state.
Of course, we’ve kept the regulars like The Mishegoss Files, Wine, Food, & Beer (although not this week), Happenings. We’ve also added Photos, & Special Announcements. We have a couple this week:
1. National Ice Cream Day-A list of places for free ice cream
2. A great video about Monterey Literary Scene
3. Racing, formula 1 to be exact is coming back to Laguna Seca
Along with all of this, we added a personal touch to some of the stories with me (Mark) adding some personal insight and memories on some. 
Let us know what you think! Just click the thumbs up or down! If you dare you can even write us a note which we will promptly answer. Promise!
Have a great week, Be Well
Mark & Patti

Off The 5
A Sinking Ship?
Proposition sponsor Gerald Meral, a prominent environmentalist, said it’s in Californians’ interests to ensure the flow of water to the east side of the Valley. The Friant-Kern brings water to the city of Fresno, numerous small towns and 17,000 farmers.
“Keeping 1 million acres of land in the Friant service area (in production) is a public good,” said Meral, a former deputy secretary of the state Natural Resources Agency.

From the 101 to the 1 and Beyond
How did we get so lucky in that Hawaii brought to California surfing or pakalolo? We should be thanking them for bringing us a better lifestyle. A lifestyle full of culture, community, and tremendous growth.
from Hawaiian surf culture has a relationship with smoking pakalolo (the Hawaiian word for cannabis, meaning paka for tobacco, and lōlō for numbing) that could be hundreds of years old, or possibly longer. The rudimentary beginnings of surfing in ancient Polynesia could be as early as 2000 BC.

Happenings Around the State
From the oceans to the cities and to the deserts we have the happenings going on in this great state. Come and check them out!
My first trip to California was back in 1961. I was 7 at the time and we cam during the Christmas Holidays. 
The first thing that I was excited about was the weather. I was living in Europe at the time and we had winters. California had sunshine and great weather. Great enough that we were playing basketball in our shorts on Christmas Eve day. What a blast.
Even better was going with the family to Ventura Blvd for cruise night. I remember being all excited about seeing all the vintage cars and hearing the engines rev as well as the smell of gas and rubber when they peeled out. 
It will always be a fond memory.

Why Monterey?
The Monterey Peninsula has a rich literary history. Authors like John Steinbeck, Robert Louis Stevenson, Robinson Jeffers and Ed Ricketts called this area their home. In this episode of Hidden Stories of Monterey, you will visit their homes and Cannery Row, where Steinbeck famously immortalized the location and residents in his novels.

Buster Keaton
Joseph Frank Keaton was born on October 4, 1895 in Piqua, Kansas, to Joe Keaton and Myra Keaton. Joe and Myra were Vaudevillian comedians with a popular, ever-changing variety act, giving Keaton an eclectic and interesting upbringing. In the earliest days on stage, they traveled with a medicine show that included family friend, illusionist Harry Houdini. Keaton himself verified the origin of his nickname “Buster”, given to him by Houdini… more about Buster here.
