SLO County: Valley Fever reports explode

In the first six months of this year, 283 cases of Valley Fever (coccidioidomycosis) were reported in San Luis Obispo County-compared to 91 cases in the first six months of 2017. This increase is especially concerning because 2017 saw the highest number of cases on record in California, and because case counts typically increase in the second half of the year.

    With the impending closure of Diablo Canyon, I’m starting to get worried about what this really means for San Luis Obispo County. Over 1,500 jobs will be lost when Diablo Canyon is gone. This not only impacts the lives of those workers and their families, but it also impacts the small business owners in our area who rely on local customers. Likewise, the loss of tax revenue to our county could hurt our ability to receive things like a speedy response to an emergency.

    Jury finds Lopez guilty

    COUNTY — After being unable to reach a verdict on a charge of murder on Sept. 5, a jury convicted Gino Lopez, 23, of felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated for the 2016 traffic collision that killed 16-year-old Grizzly Academy graduate Emily Monique Reyes on the Cuesta grade. A San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Jury found Lopez, guilty of the following felonies on the fourth day of deliberations: gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated with an enhancement for fleeing the scene of the crime; driving under the influence of alcohol with an enhancement for causing great bodily injury to more than one victim; and leaving the scene of an accident. Lopez was the intoxicated driver of a vehicle carrying passenger Reyes, who died of her injuries sustained in a collision on the Cuesta grade on April 15, 2016. “The tragic and completely avoidable death of young Ms. Reyes is a sobering reminder that driving under the influence is deadly dangerous and will not be tolerated in San Luis Obispo County,” said SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow. “We are thankful for the difficult work carried out by this jury and we respect the fact that they were unable to reach a verdict on the charge of murder. The guilty verdicts are a just outcome and Mr. Lopez will no doubt carry the weight of his actions for the rest of his life.”
