A $16 million bridge stretching 900 feet across the San Benito River is planned to connect Y Road and San Juan Bautista. But in this rural area, the number of people it will serve is small. “It's like our own bridge to nowhere,”

Nearly 30 years after a massive earthquake destroyed a section of downtown Hollister, the future of the vacant 400 block of San Benito Street will be decided by the city’s electorate next November. On Monday, the Hollister City Council chose to put the issue before voters after Mayor Ignacio Velazquez’s successful petition drive forced the city to revisit their decision to sell the cityowned parcel. “I’m glad the public will get their right to vote, I’m just saddened to hear the council is still looking

for a way out,” Velazquez said by phone Tuesday. He recused himself from the council vote because he owns the neighboring Vault. “They’re still looking for a way to keep that right from the people.” City officials are still awaiting an opinion by the California Attorney General’s Office on the petition’s validity, but it appears for now, the referendum will go ahead at the next general election. “I’m telling you right now, if the attorney general comes back and says that this is an illegal administrative act that cannot be voted on, I’ll be the one up here saying we need to cancel everything we started and go back to the original agreement we had,” said Councilman Jim Gillio. In June, the city council voted to sell the

Autumn ushered in the 94th Annual San Benito County Fair last week as thousands of visitors gathered to bask in the bounties of the region. The Horse Show kicked off opening day where nearly 40 participants competed in the stock horse division and cutting competitions.

Motorheads revelled in the revving engines during the new, two-night motorsports event that featured freestyle motocross, truck pulls and quad wars. Quilts of Honor held a Saturday celebration and gave out 43 handmade quilts to local veterans in honor of their service to the country. Sunday’s Taste of San Benito event gave fair-goers a chance to indulge in local foods and wines, a luxurious sampling of the area’s bounty. After a long weekend of fair food and festivities, county residents head back to everyday life, hungry for what the fair will bring next year.

The Hollister City Council on Monday selected Monterey Bay Alternative Medicine to take the city’s second, and last, medical cannabis dispensary slot. “It was an arduous application process, but we’re very happy we were chosen,” said Bob Blodgett in a phone call Tuesday. Blodgett runs the collective with his wife Lonna and operates a medical cannabis dispensary in Del Rey Oaks. “We started our collective in San Benito County where our ranch is. We’re so happy to have our dispensary in Hollister, which we consider our home.” The other medical dispensary license went to Purple Cross Rx in August. Hollister’s medical cannabis ordinance only allows two dispensaries to operate within city limits. Hollister native Taylor Rodrigues hoped he would get the second retail license for Haven Dispensary but there were concerns about his proposed location at 191 San Felipe Road, which is near a McDonald’s Restaurant. “I like [Haven Executive Director Taylor Rodrigues],” said resident Gary Cameron during the meeting. “I think he’s a great guy, but it’s about location.” California State University Monterey Bay professor Brad Barbeau spoke up for his former student, Rodrigues, but it was not enough to sway the council. “I think as this happens, this is a business where you really want the people who get the dispensaries to follow the rules, not just the letter but the spirit of the rules,” said Barbeau. Before the meeting, Rodrigues had alleged the city administration was not following its own processes. “I feel that since the scoring was done, the process hasn’t been followed

Earthquakes shake up residents on Facebook COUNTY HAS EMERGENCY PLAN IN CASE OF DISASTER Nicholas Preciado Reporter

With the Calaveras fault running through Hollister and the San Andreas fault in San Benito County, it’s no surprise that every earthquake in the region creates aftershocks on social media. Over the last month, five earthquakes have occurred in the nearby region spanning from the Pinnacles National Park up to Morgan Hill: two near Soledad, one near San Martin, one near San Juan Bautista and most recently one near Ridgemark. The 2.6 quake near Ridgemark happened on Tuesday. There have been 74 earthquakes in the region over the last year according to data from the United States Geological Survey. Compare that to the 54 that occurred in the region from 2015 to 2016. Of those 74, the two highest recorded measured 3.6 on the Richter scale, one 16.15 miles northeast of Greenfield on November 9 last year and the other 3.1 miles south of Gilroy on February 26 earlier this year. While local

earthquakes have remained minor, the San Benito County Office of Emergency Services maintains best safety practices such as pre-designated evacuation areas in the event of a catastrophic disaster. “The county has many pre-designated areas where people would be told to evacuate to or congregate at,” Emergency Services Manager Kevin O’Neill said. “However, we do not advertise these locations before a disaster as we do not want people congregating at a location that has not been inspected first and deemed to be safe.” Supplying the community with essentials like food and water becomes challenging during emergency situations like a large earthquake, which makes the Hollister Municipal Airport a key regional tool for delivering aid. “Additionally, it may be used as a staging area of incoming ground based resources such as the National Guard, which has an armory located at the airport,” O’Neill said. The county coordinates efforts with Hollister and San Juan Bautista via an Emergency Operations Center and a pre-established system known as the Standardized Emergency

Management System. Representatives from all jurisdictions and agencies work together in the emergency operations center to coordinate response and recovery activities. Communicating with the public proves a bit more challenging. “Communication is always the biggest challenge in an emergency situation,” O’Neill said. “In an emergency it would depend on the severity and whether internet is available. Information could be disseminated via reverse 911 (where the public receives a prerecorded message on their landline phone or an alert on their cell phone), via social media on the OES Facebook and Twitter accounts and by working with our local media outlets. If internet is not available we would resort to door to door announcements, community meetings, flyers and amateur radio operators to help spread the word.” The San Benito County Office of Emergency Services encourages everyone to register their cell phones with reserve 911 vendor Code Red at: https://public. coderedweb.com/cne/ en-US/218A80E36F49 and to follow OES on Facebook and Twitter.

“I think what we need to do as a city, as a council, as a community, everybody involved in this project, we need to get this information out,” Gillio said. “We have 1,600 people who signed this referendum and they expect a choice to be made.” Former County Supervisor Margie Barrios spoke during public comment in support of the proposed 400 block development. “The earthquake of 1989, which most of us remember very well, destroyed our buildings but not our spirit of philanthropy,” Barrios said. “We’re faced with a great opportunity. I think this is one of the greatest opportunities that this city council has had for a long time, and that is to rebuild with a great purpose.” Local educator Victor Moroni reminded the council to consider the First Amendment. “Tucked at the very end was the right to petition your government,” Moroni said. “It seems to me that the citizens of Hollister did that. That’s what the interim city clerk has pointed out: that the elections office has enumerated that process, has counted those petitions and found them valid. Now you have the simple choice tonight, which the election code is very crystal clear. The State of California says either repeal the whole thing or if you choose not to do that allow the people their right to vote. I’m a big fan of letting people have the right to vote. I think that’s a great thing.”

City makes tough call

as it was laid out,” said Rodrigues. “I’ve submitted over half a dozen letters, made multiple public comments, met with city staff and council members to put forth my concerns about the scoring done incorrectly.” Rodrigues had two appeals before city council: one to move forward in the dispensary process and the other to address incomplete applications submitted by other parties, among other claims. Both appeals failed to move forward. City Manager Bill Avera explained by phone Tuesday that city staff visited dispensaries in San Jose during the drafting of the ordinance, which set the bar for what he wanted in Hollister. “I believe it’s our job that we provide the council with our recommendations,” Avera said. The city council did not select the two dispensary applicants the staff had recommended—Higher Level of Care and Layla’s Landing. “Since the city council selected two other businesses here in town to be dispensaries, it’s up to the city and staff to make sure those businesses operate to that level. We want to make sure Purple Cross Rx and Monterey Bay Alternative Medicine operate good, successful businesses.” Avera continued: “With seven people competing for two spots, we knew five people were probably going to be disappointed.” Applicants left disappointed included a trio of businesses proposed

plot’s value as last appraised in 2015. Plans are to develop the 400 block into shop fronts, housing and a new philanthropic center for the nonprofit organization. “I think the city council did the right thing,” said Community Foundation CEO Gary Byrne on Tuesday. “The least cost to the city is beneficial to everybody.” The city council could have also decided to hold a special election, which is more costly than a general election, or rescind the agreement to sell the parcel. Holding the vote during next year’s general election is expected to cost the city between $25,000 and $30,000. The election will be paid with monies from the city’s general fund reserves, estimated around $5 million. To date, Hollister has spent $3,168.79 to verify petition signatures through the San Benito County Registrar of Voters. Byrne said the November election would give the public time to learn about the planned development. “This will give a great opportunity to educate people on the merits of the project,” Byrne said. “The more information the community has, the wiser they are.” Councilman Ray Friend agreed. “If this goes to November, there’s going to be an education plan,” Friend said. “Everybody in this city is going to know the truth about

how this went around.” Community Foundation Board Vice Chair Rebecca Wolf, who also pledged $900,000 towards the construction of the philanthropic center, said in an email the topic would be discussed at the foundation’s next board meeting. The Del Curto Brothers Group did not respond to requests for comment. Vice Mayor Karson Klauer said the best option was to place the issue before voters in November. “The voters have made it clear that they want this on the ballot,” Klauer said. “I think we should do that.” There were some on the council, however, who felt the 1,660 Hollister voters whose signatures were found valid were misled. “Everybody has a right to the referendum,” Councilwoman Mickie Luna said. “Anybody who signed that referendum, think about what you signed. If you signed that referendum or petition in front of any store in the City of Hollister thinking you were signing against housing development, that wasn’t true. You were signing to put this as a referendum on the ballot about the 400 block that’s been sitting there for 28 years.” Gillio said he wasn’t sure if people knew the full scope of the proposed project—a new headquarters for the community foundation and a mixed use building with commercial retail on the ground floor and condominiums on top.

APPEAL HEARING Cannabis applicant Eric Hecht pleads his case in front of the Hollister City Council. Hecht’s three proposed businesses at 817 Industrial Drive failed to move forward in the permit process. for a newly renovated warehouse at 817 Industrial Drive in the center of the city. Despite being located in an appropriately zoned area and conforming to the 150-foot setback rule mandated by the ordinance, the address raised concerns among some members of the public and Mayor Velazquez because of its proximity to places where youth gather such as Crossfit San Benito and Rovella’s Gym. “I just want to reiterate that all businesses that are there have been there,” Lisa Rovella said during the public hearing. “We struggled, we’ve suffered, we’ve tried to make our businesses grow. It’s hard to gauge this new thing coming in because it’s new and it’s hard for us that have children coming to our business to say ‘yeah this is great’ when it might not be. We just want to say take a second look and maybe not do it.” Steve Becerra, a resident who’s spoken out during the city’s entire

cannabis process, said the council had been hearing from the public on locations and zoning since June 2016. “Many have told you Industrial Drive, primarily due to the family and youth-focused businesses on the same short street, they have real concerns about any type of marijuana operation,” Becerra said. “You did not hear these concerns for the other industrial areas that you recently allowed these operations to continue. There’s good reason: because these types of family and youth-oriented businesses aren’t nearby.” Vice Mayor Karson Klauer and Councilman Jim Gillio recused themselves for all cannabis votes due to conflicts of interest or perceived conflicts of interest. Additionally, City Attorney Soren Diaz recused himself due to his relation to local law firm L+G, which has represented cannabis applicants in the past, though Diaz himself has not.

Hate for hate’s sake

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Mexico, Puerto Rico, Texas, Florida, US Virgin Islands—the list goes on of places that have recently experienced devastating natural disasters. Do you feel the county is prepared for the next major emergency? How are you and your household prepared?

Nick Lovejoy

Keith Snow Yes, I am prepared with water, first aid kits, flash lights, candles, a raft, etc. I have been warning and asking the county and city if they have a disaster plan, but they never responded. I do not feel they are prepared. They were not prepared during the levee break. I feel more steps can and should be taken throughout the county to prepare us for something serious and dangerous. If they do have a disaster plan, I would like to know where it is. Thank you. Charlene Hernandez I am not sure if the county is prepared but it would be nice for them to create a plan for possible places that families or people to be able to reach in case something happens. I am not prepared but as more disasters have been happening it does make me want to start preparing by creating a family kit and talking with my kids on what to do if certain things happen. Mary Zanger In the event of an emergency, our best resources exist in our ability to help each other. If power is off we with solar power, can cook and share food and water with others. We, with homes intact can share shelter. In the event of forest fires we already share our airport facility providing aircraft and water to douse conflagrations. Our best preparation to prevent climate disasters is to slow climate disruption by transferring

from fossil fuels to renewable energy like joining Monterey Bay Community Power. Ruth Erickson Floods, fires, landslides, levee breaks and earthquakes—we’ve experienced them all in this county. The Office of Emergency Services has a local phone system to call county residents to warn and advise us about local emergencies. Our household has canned food and a manual can opener, bottled water, flashlights, a digital radio with batteries, candles with matches, pet food, medicines, important papers and a barbecue to use up food from the fridge and freezer. Remember, with no electricity cell phones and electric cars can’t be charged, gas pumps can’t pump and stores can’t sell—they all need generators.

Question of the Week was sent in an email and posted on the Hollister Free Lance Facebook page on Monday, October 2. Thank you to all who contributed comments.

COMMENTS County delays decision on levee repairs I'm guessing with the lack of action and the rains coming this winter that fixing the levee properly will be cheaper than all the lawsuits. Jack Kimmich

This is BS. They will put their foot in their mouth when they have a lawsuit drop on their lap. That's why some homeowners didn't sign. lmao! The dude thought he was going to bully some into signing. Amanda Saenz-Puccini

Your hard earned tax money is going to something way less important I guarantee it. Raul Castaneda

Why all this bureaucracy? Fix the thing asap. Those families living in those areas need security. Mike Zendejas

They should have already started this process. These levees need to be repaired before the rain starts. These are people’s homes and lives for crying out loud. Crystal Jones

In the wake of the horrific event in Las Vegas this week, I found a few nuggets of wisdom, truth and looked within. First off I must say, Las Vegas Metro Police Department and their public safety partners did an excellent job managing this enormous crime scene. They were better than textbook and credit should go to the sheriff directly and those managing the incident in its infancy. Amazingly brave, solid and steady work by those heroes. Here in Hollister we have a large public gathering once or twice a year. We plan, discuss, go over possible scenarios and train almost all year for the rally. It is a huge undertaking by our staff to handle this event and keep it as safe as we possibly can. I am barely able to sleep for the week prior and during the rally. I age like six years each rally I work as the chief—last year was my 5th rally as chief. I often talk about my love for people, community and always trying to be a good example. I try to see the good in every person, situation and to truly learn from the experience. What happened on October 1st in Las Vegas—I don’t have much of anything. We did see tremendous acts of heroism. We saw destruction. We saw our worst fears. We saw death. Ambassador Sarek in Star Trek IV surmised it was difficult to come up with an answer if one did not understand what the question was. I believe we are there. We are seeing these atrocities and terrible things that are occurring all over the world. We ask ourselves why, but we don’t know the answer because we’ve never asked the right questions. How do we come up with answers if we do not know what causes people to do these things? Is it ideology? is it because we listen to heavy-metal music? Is it because we have been desensitized as a nation and really as human beings in general because we’ve allowed violence to permeate our lives through video games, the media, through movies, through books and other sources? In the last 25 or 30 years what breakthroughs have we made in mental health? The low hanging fruit in this is of course guns. Many folks will argue that if guns were not there this tragedy would not have of occurred. That’s correct, the person in Las Vegas used firearms to commit these horrific acts. I would ask what about IEDs? What about Timothy McVeigh using fertilizer? What about the knife attacks in 2014 in China that left 29 dead and over 130 injured? How about a group of men wielding box cutters that together took down four airliners, killing 3000+ people. Moral to the story is, killers will always find a way. Endless possibilities: it’s about motive, it’s about hate, it’s about ideology, it’s about mental illness. It’s about a lot of things. Be good to each other. The guest editorial was edited for space.

Police to hold drug disposal event OCTOBER 28 AT TARGET FROM 10 A.M. TO 2 P.M. Staff Report

The Hollister Police Department and Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public a chance in October to rid their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Locals can bring pills for disposal to Target at 1790 Airline Highway on Saturday, October 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Liquids must be handed over in tightly sealed containers. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. This is the 14th public opportunity in seven years to rid homes of prescription drugs. Last April, Americans turned in 900,000 pounds of prescription drugs at almost 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall in the 13 previous Take Back events, the DEA and its partners have taken in over 8.1 million pounds of pills.

The initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. American citizens are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in

In the late 1970’s, they relocated to Gilroy, CA to continue their lifelong love of caring for their home and gardens. Before retiring, Tony worked 38 years in customer service for Pacific Gas & Electric. In his work, he loved meeting and talking with customers. Known for his outgoing and gentle personality, Tony was active in Veteran’s Affairs, Morgan Hill’s Historical Society and PG&E retiree functions. In retirement, he loved to play golf. Tony often told his family how much he enjoyed the friendship of his Gilroy neighbors from “down the lane.” “Unk”, as he was lovingly referred to by family members, is survived by two of his sisters, Marie Gran of Sherwood, OR and Rose Brown of McMinnville, OR. He was predeceased by his wife, Eva, and three of his sisters: Agnes Hicks, Louise Rossi and Gretchen Rine, and an infant brother. “Unk” leaves several nieces and nephews: John Hicks, Jeannette Gran Davis, Jim Gran Jr., Cathy Gran, Roberta Rossi, Mary Ann Rossi, Patricia Heredia, Rich Rine, Steve Rine, Patrick Brown, Susanne Davis, Laure Brown, and Michael Brown.

Slow progress on Gavilan College site FAIRVIEW CORNERS IN HOLLISTER REMAINS UNTOUCHED Nicholas Preciado Reporter

Roseann Hernandez Cattani

Despite approving a school bond measure that was expected to bring a new Gavilan College campus to San Benito County 13 years ago, locals have yet to receive that campus. While the Briggs Building in downtown Hollister is awash with fresh faces and open minds looking to learn this new fall semester, a plot of land near the Ridgemark Golf Club and Resort known as Fairview Corners sits untouched. Gavilan College, in partnership with Morgan Hill-based Dividend Homes, acquired Fairview Corners for $8 million years ago. The lot was purchased with funds from Measure E, a $108 million school bond measure voters approved in 2004. While the college purchased the 80-acre portion of Fairview Corners—Dividend Homes claims 60 acres—more than a decade ago, no construction has taken place. “The need for having a comprehensive education facility in San Benito County has been recognized for a long time,” said Jan Bernstein-Chargin, the college’s public information officer. While purchasing the property cost the community college $8 million, they were also required to obtain incidental take permits and purchase mitigation land for the California Tiger Salamander, a federally endangered species, found at Fairview Corners. It took several years to get the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife to agree on appropriate mitigation

measures, according to Fred Harris, the college’s vice president of administrative services. “We’ve completed the incidental take permit process for the state,” Harris said. “Generally speaking, the state has far more requirements than the feds do.” Harris said the school is still working on acquiring the federal incidental take permit and estimates that to be complete in six months. The tiger salamanders won’t be removed from the Fairview Corners parcel. Instead, their loss will be compensated by the purchase of mitigation land. For every acre of land at Fairview Corners, Gavilan College had to purchase three acres of conservation land up at Mariposa Peak. The school secured an option to purchase easements of up to 420 acres, but the state determined they only needed 329 acres of mitigation land. Gavilan College’s share of the mitigation land cost is 11.3 percent or $130,119.50, which was paid into escrow on December 21, 2015. Dividend Homes picked up the remaining cost. Addressing environmental concerns, however, is only part of the next-step process. Dividend Homes still needs to go through their development process with the county. “They’re finalizing the tentative development map,” Harris said. “I think it’ll be done in about a month. Then their final map will be done in about a year. Once map approvals are done with the county and we have all the requirements for mitigation in line, then they’ll start churning dirt.” If all goes according to plan, groundbreaking for Fairview Corners could be expected at the end of 2018. However, a college campus or education center at

STILL VACANT Purchased with Measure E funds, the 80-acre Fairview Corners plot in Hollister remains undeveloped after the bond passed in 2004. Gavilan College needed to buy mitigation land in Mariposa Peak to offset development of the environmentally sensitive site. that corner plot is still a pipe dream as funding for its construction is close to non-existent since all Measure E funds have been spent.

Gavilan College recently conducted a telephone survey to see if residents in the college district would be amenable to a new school bond at

Homeless shelter gets name, opening date PHASE II COULD BRING NEW HOUSING Nicholas Preciado Reporter

The new homeless services center is on track to open for operation on December 1. The shelter, meant to be a permanent replacement to the current Emergency Temporary Winter Shelter that operates from December to March, is now called the

Homeless Opportunities Meals and Empowerment (HOME) Resource Center. “That’s a damn good name,” San Benito County Board Chairman Jaime De La Cruz said at Tuesday’s regular meeting. Supervisors approved the name during the meeting as Health and Human Services Agency Director Jim Rydingsword reported on the new shelter located at 1161 San Felipe Road. The shelter, which started construction in early August, will have 50 beds, 28 for male

and 22 for female individuals. The phased construction project has a $3 million budget. Phase I is expected to be completed by mid-November. Phase I includes the sleeping areas, bathrooms, an office, lobby and dining space. Phase II will add a kitchen and possibly transitional housing units. “We were talking a few weeks ago, because we have this space leftover,” Rydingsword said. “There’s some funding available that we would like to at least put an application in for.”

Funding is available from the California Department of Finance for transitional housing, which is defined as units people can live in for two years while they search for permanent housing. Rydingsword said the county could apply for around $2 million in funds. “Basically it’s a room, maybe 150 to 200 square feet. It has a community kitchen and facilities for toilets and stuff. We think we could actually get 10 units in there.” Applying for the funds doesn’t require a local match.

Discussions with multiple potential partners like the California Community Economic Development Association and Community Housing Improvement Systems and Planning Association (CHISPA) could drum up more funding for the HOME Resource Center. “You have to look at this as we’re doing something that’s hopefully going to last for 50, 60, 70 years. If we do this right, it’s all paid for upfront. There’s no county general fund involved.”

High marks for Hollister School District STANDARDIZED TEST RESULTS SHOW IMPROVEMENT Staff Report

Examples of notable growth comparisons for Hollister K–8 students include: • 5th grade students in the Hollister School District are improving at over double the rate in English language arts and mathematics as their peers in the county and triple the rate of their state peers. • 6th and 8th grade students in the Hollister School District are improving at almost • triple the rate in English language arts and over double the rate in mathematics as their peers in the county and state. • The percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards grew in 6th and 8th grade in English language arts at every school site and in 4th grade at seven of the district’s eight schools. • The percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards grew in 4th and 6th grade in mathematics at every school.

Roseann Hernandez Cattani

Building on the momentum of a successful start to the new school year, Hollister School District announced another year of progress for local K–8 students. District students in 2016-17 exceeded the state’s assessment standards by 14 percent in English language arts and by 23 percent in mathematics. “Our focus is 100 percent on building an extraordinary learning environment in Hollister neighborhood schools. We are thrilled to see that our approach is working and that student achievement is on the rise,” said Superintendent Lisa Andrew, Ed.D. There are about 5,500 students in the Hollister School District. Last year marked the third year of California’s new statewide student assessment

system—California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, which replaced the previous Standardized Testing and Reporting system. The new system’s main component is the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment, which is based on a growth model that allows the California Department of Education to produce growth comparisons that can track students’ progress through grade levels over time. “This is really good news for us because the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments are very different from the old California Standards Test—in a good way— so it’s doubly good to see that our students are improving according to the new more rigorous and realistic assessment system,” said Andrews. “I am heartened to hear from so many members of our education community that they are all-in with us in this journey to build on the successes of last year and accelerate student achievement as we start this new school year.”

GOOD NEWS Hollister School District superintendent, Dr. Lisa Andrew, will speak at a state of the district town hall Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. at Rancho San Justo Middle School. • The percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards grew at every grade level, in both English language arts and mathematics at Ladd Lane School.

• For the third year in a row, every 5th, 7th, and 8th grade student met or exceeded standards in English language arts at the Accelerated Achievement Academy.

City and county leaders support DACA PASS RESOLUTIONS ON IMMIGRATION PROGRAM Nicholas Preciado Reporter

The City of Hollister and San Benito County recently passed resolutions in support of the immigration program referred to as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). “The immigration issue throughout the United States and locally in Hollister and San Benito County is no fault of children that were brought here when they were very small, very young,” said Hollister Councilwoman Mickie Luna

during Monday’s meeting. “Today, looking at the population in the City of Hollister, it’s pretty close to over 60 percent Latino. It’s not just Latinos. The immigrant community of children are not just Latinos and we want to make sure that people understand that.” The program, which began in 2012, enables eligible undocumented immigrants brought into the United States as children to work legally and remain in the country without fear of deportation. Over 200,000 young people in California are protected under DACA and there is an estimated 840,000 recipients in the entire country.

“Looking at San Benito County, you can see the diversity and I applaud diversity,” Luna said. “So, I asked this be on the agenda because I believe the City of Hollister is the last city in the region and county to actually adopt such a resolution that is only supporting all the children in the City of Hollister attending our schools.” The San Benito County Board of Supervisors passed a similar resolution at their September 26 meeting. “The issue of this policy of DACA is really a byproduct of our hyper-partisan political system in the United States,” Supervisor Robert Rivas said. “In my opinion,

it’s very easy to get behind and support a policy such as DACA. Why wouldn’t we want to welcome immigrants who are going to be in our country to work hard?” In addition to being a county supervisor, Rivas works at San Benito High School. “When the current administration announced they would be ending this policy, I had lines of children outside my office door in tears out of fear that they didn’t know what was going to happen to them. That’s why I think this is important.” Rivas said while DACA is important, real comprehensive

immigration reform is still needed. “Don’t get me wrong: we need to defend DACA as a policy and the ideas it represents, while also pushing for permanent and legal protections for all undocumented immigrants.” Supervisor Anthony Botelho agreed. “The statement was well done and that hits it right on the nail,” Botelho said. “The failures of the federal government and to an extent the state government as far as polarizing our communities is reprehensible. I certainly would like to see immigration reform. I don’t want to see people deported.”

RISING ABOVE Balers senior Annie Breger, seen here earlier in the season in a match against Christopher, has proven to be a force at middle blocker for a San Benito team that enters Thursday’s match against Alvarez with a perfect 7-0 record in the MBL’s Gabilan Division.

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL

Playing for a cause BALERS TAKE COURT IN A MATCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN USUAL emanuel lee Sports Editor

San Benito High’s five-set win over Monte Vista Christian— game scores were 22-25, 2519, 25-14, 22-25, 15-4—on Sept. 28 wasn’t just another league match. It carried extra significance, as the Haybalers were hosting a Disabilities Awareness game. Each player on the

team played in honor of a disability or someone they knew with a disability. “It was really special,” Balers senior Annie Breger said. “In the beginning of the season when the team got together, coach (Emily Tonascia) had the idea of a disability awareness game because her older brother Joey has autism, and she thought it would be a good way to bring awareness to people with disabilities. Everyone grabbed hold of the idea, and it was really great and touching to be able to do something like this.” All around the gym, the significance of the game was evident. The walls were adorned with posters and words from the players on the disability

they were representing. Breger chose to represent epilepsy because someone close to her has been diagnosed with the neurological disorder. Breger doesn’t usually need inspiration, as she is one of the more energetic players on the team. However, the middle blocker said there was something a little extra riding on the line against Monte Vista Christian. “Knowing that this game was for everyone who couldn’t play made it that much more meaningful,” Breger said. “You walk around campus and see kids with disabilities, and I love it that I can interact with them. They’re genuine and warm hearted, and it makes me want to be a better person.”

Some of the San Benito High sports teams have a Pinkout Game to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month. Knowing the impact that publicity can bring to certain events, Tonascia felt it would be appropriate to highlight Disability Employment Awareness Month, which is also celebrated in October. “A lot of people don’t realize that,” Tonascia said. “And a lot of our girls are in the Circle of Friends program at school, and they’re really affected by students with disabilities. So it’s powerful for them to recognize people who would like to play volleyball but can’t play volleyball. Sometimes we make it a point to play for them.” ➝ Volleyball, page 20

MORE THAN A GAME Something greater On Sept. 28, San Benito High hosted a disability awareness game, bringing attention to disabilities and those who have them. Each player played for a disability or a person with a disability. The event came on the eve of Employment Awareness Disability Month. Three-peat in the works The Balers have dropped only four sets through seven Gabilan Division matches. They’re attempting to win a third consecutive league championship.

GIRLS TENNIS

Balers see progress, wins emanuel lee Sports Editor

Robert Eliason

BACKHAND Allison Okamoto, who is part of the No. 1 doubles team with Laura Beltran, follows through on a shot.

The San Benito High girls tennis team is proving that it doesn’t belong in the Monterey Bay League’s Pacific Division. Relegated to the MBL’s lower division because of a poor season in 2016, the Haybalers are running roughshod over their competition early in the 2017 season. Entering Thursday’s match against Monterey— a result that could go a long way in determining the Pacific Division champion—San Benito has won by scores of 7-0, 7-0, 7-0 and 5-2, respectively. “This is perhaps the first time ever we’ve been in the bottom division, and we’re proving it’s kind of a

fluke we’re here,” longtime Balers coach Ed Cecena said. “Last year we had our smallest roster ever, along with some hard luck with ineligibility and stuff like that. We’re barely losing games so far in league, and it’s hardly a challenge.” The Balers’ success coincides with the fact that most of the returning players made it a point to get more serious about their game. Seniors like Vivian Hernandez and Laura Beltran along with Cecena and assistant coach Rick Espino emphasized playing in the off-season, which is a hard sell sometimes to student-athletes who have a number of other commitments. Slowly but surely,

Cecena and Espino said their message to current and future players on the team is settling in: That if you actually want to maximize your potential and see better results, you have to spend more time on the court. Led by ace Julia Pearson, No. 2 singles player Hernandez, No. 3 Jessica Parga and No. 4 Zoe Martinez, the Balers are dominating the singles portion of every division match. “Our singles players did a lot of improvement over the off-season,” Cecena said. “That’s our strength. … Julia won well over 50 percent of her matches (in the Gabilan Division) last year, and she is athletic and has a lot of ability. And

I’ve really been impressed with Jessica and her ability to focus and tune all the other stuff out. Once she gets on the court, she’s all business.” Hernandez said she loves the makeup of this year’s squad, which has improved chemistry and a willingness to grind and compete for every point. The senior captain points to the No. 1 doubles team of Laura Beltran and Allison Okamoto, who showed plenty of mettle in a three-set win over Monte Vista Christian in a Sept. 13 match. Beltran and Okamoto also rallied from three games down in the first set to post a 7-5, 6-2 ➝ Tennis, page 20

passes off the MVC serves. “I think our servereceive passers stepped up after the first game or two and really worked on getting their feet going,” said Tonascia, who also pointed to the attackers being aggressive and smart in their hitting selection. “And (setter) Kieley Hoskins played a really good game and had a lot of good sets and good energy. Annie Breger also did a solid job of staying in position and bringing energy to the team.” The Balers saved their best for last—“If we played every game like we did our fifth game, the match would’ve been over a lot quicker,” Tonascia said— improving to a perfect 7-0 in league play following a three-game sweep of North Salinas Tuesday. “We weren’t playing our best, but the fact that we still won truly shows what a good team this is,” Breger said. “Of course we have more things to work

on, but it’s nice to know we’re able to pull through and pick each other up when some of us are having an off night.” “The first half of league is all over, and it’s really cool we’re undefeated,” Tonascia said. “Hopefully it stays that way. We have to continue to have a mindset to improve everyday. If we continue playing like the way we did in that fifth game, we won’t have a problem.” San Benito is in the midst of perhaps the greatest three-year run in program history. The Balers are the two-time defending MBL Gabilan Division champions, won a California Interscholastic Federation Northern California playoff match last season and are an incredible 29-2 in league since the start of the 2015 season. However, the Balers take even greater satisfaction in playing for others and honoring them in words and action. Last week in a

Even though the Balers didn’t play one of their better matches of the season, they still dug deep and managed to pull out a victory against a tough MVC team. Lauren Sabbatini, the outstanding senior outside hitter, had a team-high 14 kills. Breger had a high hitting percentage, and is playing the best volleyball of her career. “In the last few practices, Liz (Fleming), coach and I have been working on hitting to the deep corners of the court,” Breger said. “We want to be real intentional on where to place the ball, and I think all the hard work is paying off. I can see it from the numbers, where I’m hitting better than the past few years. That is what I hoped would happen.” Tonascia said the key to the resounding Game 5 win was everyone moving their feet to be in the correct defensive position to dig up attacks and make solid

Baler girls tennis team’s hard work paying off as it mows down Pacific foes and Alvarez coaches and put together a summer jamboree, where several teams play at one location. The Balers also got invited to an event where they teamed up with members from the Gilroy Tennis Club, which really turned out to be an eye-opener. “The players got to mingle with some of the older club members who told them, ‘Hey, this is what you can look forward to after you’re done with high school and college,’” Cecena said. “You can still play the sport for life, and it’s much more than an athletic thing—it’s a social thing as well. You form friendships for life, and it’s a great thing.” San Benito hosts this

year’s MBL Pacific Division tournament, which should be a treat since the Balers probably have the top player in the division in Pearson. And depending on which players they elect to play in the doubles tourney, the Balers would have an excellent shot of winning that as well. The Balers must win the Pacific to get a match with the second-place team from the Gabilan for the league’s second berth into the Central Coast Section playoffs. Seeing how San Benito has already beaten three teams—Alvarez, Christopher and Monte Vista Christian—from the Gabilan, a postseason berth is a realistic possibility.

The Balers have a team dinner once a week, a nice changeup from always seeing each other on the courts. “That’s been a big part of our success because girls get to know each other better,” Hernandez said. Cecena credited the players and Espino for organizing a couple of events where the players could gain valuable experience in the off-season. Espino got together with the North Salinas

run out. At the last moment, at what would have capped one of the most memorable and unlikely comebacks, Reyes jumped a route, picked off White and sealed the Mustangs’ fate, ensuring a 2-0 league start for the Balers. “I feel like we got away with one there,” Balers coach Bryan Smith said. “We’re going to watch a lot of film because we got a lot of things to work on.” Gonzalez, who credited his offensive line, routinely blasted through holes of the Mustangs defense, biting off chunks of rushing yards, controlling the clock and setting the tone offensively. “It was a really physical game,” Gonzalez said. “I love how our offense is moving the ball. We got a little adversity, but we are trained to play Hollister football. We don’t care about adversity; we just fight through it.” It was a battle of differing offensive game plans. The Balers were the ground and pound team, relying on the legs of Gonzalez, Wilson and Ramon. Wilson, who rushed for one TD and connected with senior tight end Giovanni Giannotta for a receiving TD, capitalized on the few times he threw the ball. For the Mustangs it was the White to Bautista air show. Bautista, a junior wide receiver, capitalized on his height and speed to score two receiving

an Benito High survived a nailbiter on the road last Friday when defensive back Elisha Reyes intercepted a pass from Monte Vista Christian quarterback Sean White, preserving a 36-29 win in a Monterey Bay League Gabilan Division game. The Haybalers (4-1 overall, 2-0 league) took an early lead and relied heavily on a running attack led by senior tailback Jonny Gonzalez, who finished the game with 171 yards rushing, a 49 yard reception and one rushing touchdown. It looked looked to be a rout early. Haybalers senior Matt Ramon got the scoring started with a rushing TD before Gonzalez scored to give San Benito a 14-0 lead. But the Mustangs (3-2, 1-1) had plenty of kick left in them. Trailing 28-7, Mustangs quarterback Sean White connected with junior wide receiver Nicholas Bautista, making it a two-touchdown game. On the ensuing kickoff, MVC pooched the ball between a couple of San Benito players

before recovering the ball. White promptly threw a touchdown pass into the outstretched hands of senior wide receiver Colton Conway, making it a one-score contest. It was a game again. MVC was charging and after forcing a punt, the game had the look of a Mustangs upset and a resulting adjustment of the division standings. Just as victory seemed to be slipping through San Benito’s fingertips, it received a break when its punt was muffed by a MVC player, and the Haybalers retook possession. San Benito took full advantage and junior quarterback Slade Wilson put the Haybalers back on the board with a rushing touchdown. MVC took the ball and White, who completed 24 of 40 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns, drove the Mustangs down the field with the help of Bautista, who also hauled in a 30-yard touchdown in the first half. Bautista two catches for 70 yards on the drive before White capped the series with a rushing TD on a keeper. White connected with senior tight end Ian Johnson for the two-point conversion. MVC still had one trick up its sleeve. The Mustangs recovered another successful onside kick, but that’s where their luck would
