Could California be split into six separate states? One Silicon Valley venture capitalist hopes to put a plan before voters this year which would do just that. The California Secretary of State’s office has given approval to Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper to begin collecting petition signatures for a measure that would split California into six, new, separate states. The 2014 deadline to collect 807,615 signatures is July 18; he may instead put the measure on the 2016 ballot.
Two CareMore medical assistants are looking for help locating a man they rescued from his burning vehicle in Turlock on Feb. 17. The man was driving in the parking lot adjacent to the CareMore Care Center in Turlock when he crashed into a parked car due to a suspected seizure. Vanessa Furtado and Maritza Saucedo, employees of CareMore, saw the accident and attempted to remove the man from the vehicle. But the doors were locked and the trunk had begun to be engulfed in flames.
A suspicious, potentially explosive device was brought to the Turlock Public Safety Facility Saturday morning, leading police to block off a portion of Downtown Turlock and call in the bomb squad. At 10:31 a.m., a concerned citizen brought what he believed to be an explosive device to Turlock police.
