Boulder Creek Community Radio Station Begins To Take Shape
May 15, 2013, Boulder Creek, CA- San Lorenzo Valley community members began to discuss plans to obtain an FCC license that became available for a community radio station at 90.1 FM. Community members have had several meetings and are excited to purchase a transmitter, determine a transmission site, obtain a broadcast studio and begin broadcasting. Ongoing funds would be sought by obtaining local underwriters and pledge drives. The radio signal would transmit to a large part of the San Lorenzo Valley. Members feel this would be a valuable service for local schools to publicize their fundraising events, for public safety information, road closure and weather information as well as to publicize local events put on by the Boulder Creek Recreation Center and other community non-profits.
Well it turns out the prowler we reported on yesterday is indeed Dimitri Storm, a career criminal who is wanted in connection with a series of break-ins and robberies around this area. We’ve just received an update from Santa Cruz Sheriffs and it appears that last night Dimitri dumped the stolen blue SUV he was driving on the 200 block of West Hilton at the Boulder Creek Country Club.
If you see Dimitri call 911 – do not attempt to approach, this man is dangerous.
Also, if your licenses plates have been stolen, please call the Santa Cruz County sheriffs. Dimitri is known to steal license plates and then put them on the cars he steals.
Late last night Santa Cruz Sheriffs recived a report that Boulder Creek resident, Wendy Rivas, walked out of her home and did not return.
Wendy , who resides on the 13000 block of Highway 9, was last seen wearing purple pants and a purple shirt. She has brown hair with purple and red tips. She is 5 foot 7, weighs about 170 pounds and is 53 years old.
3 teams of Sheriff’s along with K9s searched for her until 4am this morning.
If you have seen her or have any info, please call the Sheriffs or email us at BoulderCreekInsider@gmail.com
Picture of Wendy coming soon . . .
This afternoon a known Boulder Creek transient was found dead beside the San Lorenzo River.
Sheriff’s have stated that no foul play is suspected Interestingly, word on the street is that this man – Roger – was suspected to have been involved with the recent Coldwell Banker fire in town.

The Boulder Creek Fire Protection District’s Kevin McClish has issued a statement regarding this morning’s fire at the Coldwell Banker office in downtown Boulder Creek. From his note:
This mornings fire at the Coldwell Banker building was caused by a discarded cigarette, in the alley under the stairs, between Coldwell Banker and the Oddfellows building. There is evidence in the area of people drinking, smoking, and possible sleeping in that area. . . . If this fire had occurred at 3 am we would have lost several buildings.
Authorities have a pretty good idea who started the fire. All local business owners are being encouraged to check the exterior of their buildings for evidence of people smoking, drinking or sleeping on their properties, and if they have issues with this to notify the Sheriffs office.
A big thanks to Doug Conrad, Mark Kinder and Jim Walters who aggressively attacked the fire until the fire department arrived.
