Low-income families to get help paying water bill

Central Coast Energy Services, Inc. (CCES), in partnership with the Community Action Partnership of Monterey County, will provide drought-affected, low-income households in Monterey County with a one-time payment assistance benefit on residential water bills.

The Drought Water Assistance Program, a $600,000 Community Services Block Grant, was distributed to 10 California counties where the unemployment rate is higher than the 2013 statewide average, the share of agricultural workers is higher than the state as a whole, and which are experiencing "exceptional" drought conditions according to the U.S. Drought Monitor Classification System. The 10 counties include Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz.

Man wearing surgical mask robs Monterey antique shop

A man wearing a white surgical mask over his face and armed with a handgun robbed the All American Antiques Shop on Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey Wednesday morning.

Monterey Police said at 10:27 am the suspect entered the shop and ordered everyone in the store to lie on the floor. He then stole approximately $1,200 from the business. Police said the man took off on foot through the old Kentucky Fried Chicken parking lot.

The suspect was described as possibly a Hispanic male wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the white surgical mask covering his face. Witnesses followed the suspect and saw him get into a black Jaguar with chrome wheels being driven by a second suspect. They fled south on Laine at a high rate of speed and are still outstanding.

Man to push large fake testicle across country

Here's a headline that's hard to miss: "A giant inflatable testicle will roll across Monterey County."

But behind the mock human body part, that will certainly create lots of puns along the way, is a cancer survivor trying to raise awareness.

Thomas Cantley, 31, survived testicular cancer. He is pushing the six-foot testicle across the country to generate awareness and support for young men's health issues. Cantley, who won't detach the inflated testicle from his waist during the entire trip, will begin his trek in Santa Monica on September 4 and end in New York City in early October.

Cantley is encouraging people to come and find the giant testicle as it rolls through Monterey, Salinas, and Carmel through September 9 and tell him how they have been BALLSY (there's your first pun).
