Salinas Public Libraries will Close in the New Year

The three Salinas Public Libraries will close for an indefinite period of time soon after January 1, 2005. According to the website for the Salinas Public Libraries, these closures are part of the 9.2 million dollars in the service reductions incurred by the City of Salinas due to loss of revenues from the State of California, higher fees imposed by Monterey County, slower than expected economic recovery, and increased costs of employee health insurance and retirement benefits. Exact dates and details are to be determined. The Salinas Public Libraries may close in July, 2005 according to an interview on KCRW with Anna Caballero, Mayor of Salinas.

Here is their executive summary of those statistics which was published on Dec. 21, 2004. The reason that the list of homeless deaths had 37 names but the report says 30 deaths is due to the fact that some homeless people were able to get into housing just prior to their deaths and were not included in the statistical study, though no doubt homelessness played a factor in their deaths. --- Becky Johnson of HUFF

Militaries Families Peace Delegation to Mid-East

Interview with Amalia Avila Gonzalez, mother of Lance Cpl. Victor Gonzalez, a US marine from Pajaro, CA who was killed in action on October 13.
