  • Young Author Awarded

    Boronda DIAS 4th grader Abrianna Ruiz's favorite medium is the colored pencil. And this summer, she and her colored pencils and vivid imagination won honors from the Salinas Public Library in its Graphic Novel Contest for Kids and Teens 2022. Abrianna's four-page work, Catsune Adventure: Book One, chronicles the adventures of a half-girl, half-cat creature who wants to go to space. Catsune goes to college so she can work at NASA, then convinces her boss she and a pal are ready for flight. Catsune Adventure won the top honor in the contest in the 1st-4th grade category; Abrianna won art supplies as part of the award. Christy Barrera, Abrianna's mother, credits Abrianna's teacher, Thane House, with encouraging her work.

  • New National Suicide Hotline Launched

    People experiencing a mental health crisis have a new way to reach out for help in the U.S. They can simply call or text the numbers 9-8-8. Modeled after 911, the new three-digit 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline is designed to be a memorable and quick number that connects people who are suicidal or in any other mental health crisis to a trained mental health professional. "If you are willing to turn to someone in your moment of crisis, 988 will be there," said Xavier Becerra, the secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services, at a recent press briefing. "988 won't be a busy signal, and 988 won't put you on hold. You will get help."
