SLVNews From Facebook and Twitter 3-16

Note: SLVNews has a lively and active following on Twitter and Facebook and we post there more regularly than here.  We're going to experiment by bringing some of that information to the blog once a week or so and see how readers here like it.  We've also added an email feed where you can sign up to get every new blog post sent to you on a daily or weekly basis. Of course if you're on Facebook or Twitter we hope you follow and like us there too.

Via Ray Soler: When disaster strikes, will you be ready? The time to plan is now. Recent events should be a wake up call: It CAN and it WILL happen here. One way to prepare is to take the CERT training offered by most Fire Departments in the county. In the Valley, that would be Felton Fire. A new class begins April 6th, at 6:30 PM. For more info on CERT, see or

Congratulations to SLV Middle School County Spelling Bee participants. Zoe Webb (8th), Mimi Cafiero (7th), and Cameron Brown (6th), all placed in the Top Ten of the Santa Cruz County Spelling Bee out of 125 of the top student spellers.

Ben Lomond brothers, Jamie and Kellen Coffis have two local shows this week: On Thursday, St Patrick's Day they will be performing at Bocce's Cellar and on Saturday night they'll be in downtown Santa Cruz at Clouds. No cover either night. Drop in and catch some great rock and roll, hear some new songs and shake a leg or two.


  • Mountain-Art-Center on Mill St Ben Lomond has loads of classes, events check it out here:
  • Our State Senator Joe Simitian's SB 2X which would require 33% renewable energy for California by 2020 passed its final committee today. The next step is the Assembly floor for a full vote, and then hopefully Governor Brown's desk.
  • Sat April 16th from 1-5PM Wine & Chocolate Tasting and Silent Auction to benefit the San Lorenzo Valley High School Grad Night. This will be the final major fundraiser and will be held at Bruno's BBQ in Scotts Valley. (Senior parents don't forget meeting Wed night at the MPR 6:30 PM - short and sweet!)
  • ‎San Lorenzo Valley High School Senior Nick Lipperd leads the Cougars to a 5-2 win over defending champs, Scotts Valley in the SCCAL opener for both teams. Read about in the Sentinel here.
