CALIFORNIA PAROLE

Charles Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel will once again seek freedom on Thursday at a parole hearing in Chino.

Krenwinkel has repeatedly sought parole and has always been rejected. But late last year, her attorney asserted new claims that Krenwinkel suffered abuse at Manson’s hands before the murders.

A 17-year-old Calaveras County girl who was the subject of an endangered missing person alert has returned and is safe with her parents, according to the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office.

The alert for Mikaiyla Dawn Hodges was issued Wednesday afternoon by the California Highway Patrol on behalf of the Sheriff’s Office. Hodges was reported missing shortly before 8:30 p.m. Monday and was believed to be with 37-year-old Michael Stewart, a Yuba County resident who wanted by the California Department of Corrections for a parole violation, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.

CALIFORNIA INMATES

SAN QUENTIN, Calif. — “You can lock up the body, but you can’t lock up the mind.”

That’s one of the things you hear from the men inside San Quentin State Prison. And the voice — you can’t lock that up, either. Especially the voices of a couple of inmates who have launched a series of regular audio dispatches from inside what used to be one of America’s most notorious prisons.

Earlonne Woods and Antwan Williams created a podcast known as “Ear Hustle,” aided and abetted by Nigel Poor, an artist and academic who first came to know the men as a video instructor and later when she helped launch an in-house radio program, “Windows and Mirrors.”

SANTA ANA — In order to make the deadline, the City Council on Tuesday, June 20, approved a $510.6 million budget for fiscal year 2017-18, but with an option to make modifications to the package through July 5, when it comes up for final approval.

Following a lengthy discussion and numerous opposing comments from Service Employees International Union Local 721 members, Councilman Vicente Sarmiento first motioned to continue consideration of the budget for two weeks. He withdrew the motion after City Attorney Sonia Carvalho reported that previous city councils have “done the first reading solely for the purpose of doing the first reading, and made changes after the fact.”
