Legislation lowers schools’ loan rate

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill to reduce the interest rate on a South Monterey County High School District emergency loan. The bill includes language that will allow the district to repay its debt to the state in a shorter amount of time than originally designed.

The school district received a $13 million emergency loan in 2009 when it was projected to be fiscally insolvent. By law, the school district was forced to finance with the state-run California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank (I-Bank).

At the time, the interest rate for I-Bank was at 5.44 percent. In California, only three other school districts have emergency loans, and their interest rates are below 2 percent.


Disciplinary hearing delayed for nurse

An administrative hearing over disciplinary actions against a Soledad prison nurse has been continued until Oct. 28.

Angelia Britt, the

former director of nursing at the Correctional Training Facility, is fighting the action by the California Board of Registered Nursing and the Attorney General’s Office. Testimony began in Oakland on Tuesday but was not completed.

The agencies are seeking suspension or revocation of Britt’s license for allegedly falsifying pharmaceutical records to cover possible diversion of more than 1,200 narcotic medications and approving unearned overtime pay for a nursing supervisor, among other accusations.


Ex-senator to speak about Ethiopia rescue

Retired U.S. Sen. Rudy Boschwitz will present a program at 7:30p.m. Sunday at Congregation Beth Israel, 5716 Carmel Valley Road.

Boschwitz was President George H.W. Bush’s emissary to Ethiopia in the spring of 1991 and led the team that negotiated Operation Solomon, the 24-hour airlift that rescued 14,325 Ethiopian Jews. Boschwitz will show a brief film of the rescue.
