Low water levels and algae blooms due tothe statewide drought have canceled camp-ing for the entire season at Memorial Parkin Loma Mar.The Parks Department announced earlierthis month they were halting camping atthe park for the rest of June and on Fridaysaid it is extending the closure through therest of the season.The seasonwide stop at the 499-acre parkthrough October will cost the county$350,000, according to Parks DepartmentDirector Marlene Finley.Anyone with a camping reservationthrough July will be contacted with thechance to reschedule for the same dates andlength of stay in 2015 or a full refund.Pescadero Creek is the only water sourceto the park and while at the beginning of the season park staff thought it had a 20- to30-day supply based on normal patterns,the recent hot weather dropped the level fur-ther. The hotter temperatures also causedalgae to bloom. Both prompted the mid-June shut off of water to drinking fountains,showers and toilets. Park department staff spent the next weekmonitoring the creek and looking at waysto get water into Memorial Park but ulti-mately concluded shutting down camping

SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown onFriday signed California’s $108 billionbudget for the coming fiscal year that paysdown debt, builds a rainy-day fund and pro-vides additional money for schools andhealth care.Brown signed the budget in a crowded,sparsely furnished press room at San DiegoCity Hall, flanked by lawmakers includingAssembly Speaker Toni Atkins, a Democratfrom San Diego. “California is demon-strating that the majoritycan actually govern,unlike Washington,which is mired in grid-lock and partisanship andextreme polarization,”Brown said, adding thatDemocrats had “a lot of cooperation from theminority party as well.”Brown said the budget lowers debt,invests in public schools, shores up theteachers’pension fund and guards againstanother economic downturn.

He also admittedusing force and committing a violentfelony.Lopez will be formally sentenced July 25after a report is compiled on his likelihoodto reoffend. As part of his sentence, Lopezwill also be required to register as a sexoffender for life.

The girl said Lopezthreatened to harm herparents if she told but she informed hermother who contacted the church pastor.The pastor called a church meeting at whichLopez reportedly confessed and asked for-giveness from some members of the congre-gation, according to prosecutors.Lopez was removed as an usher but not thechurch.The alleged victim brought the accusa-tions to police now after having troubleattending the same church as her allegedabuser, according to the District Attorney’sOffice.After the teen came forward, further policeinvestigation led to another reported victimwho said around the same time in 2008,when she was 13, Lopez also grabbed hertwice and touched her inappropriately.The multiple victim allegation is whatleft Lopez originally facing a potential lifesentence.

California,Amtrak end  joint high-speed train bid
SACRAMENTO — Amtrak and theCalifornia High-Speed Rail Authority saidFriday that they canceled a joint agreementseeking companies to build high-speedtrains for them, a proposal billed as a way tosave money and lure advanced train manu-facturing to the United States.The agencies said their needs are too dif-ferent and manufacturers are not yet ready tobuild trains that can run on both Amtrak’s100-year-old rail lines and the high-speedcorridors planned for California’s system.The joint proposal announced in Januarycalled for bids by mid-May on up to 28 elec-tric-powered train sets with 400-450 seatseach for Amtrak and 15 train sets with a min-imum of 450 seats for high-speed rail. Thenumber of cars per train would be up to bid-ders to propose.It became clear in meetings with manufac-turers during the last few weeks that therequirements were too different to incorpo-rate into one set of trains, said Lisa-MarieAlley, a spokeswoman for high-speed rail.
