Click HERE to help he and his family out..and donation helps.

From the page:

As many of you know 5 year old Oliver was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He’s anxious to get back to his kindergarten classmates at Boulder Creek Elementary but for now he is receiving treatment in Santa Clara. Parents and friends of his classmates are getting together to raise funds to support his family with the costs of treatment, travel costs to and from the hospital as his parents try to navigate work and caring for Oliver. We’d also like to raise funds to buy an iPad to be used so that Oliver can Skype with his classmates. Staying in touch with his friends will be an important part of his recovery. Please help if you can!

Reader Comment: Vince Rutherford

Below is a comment from a Boulder Creek Insider Reader. If anyone has info, please comment below or email us.

 

2 weeks ago an 89 year old resident was hit and killed in front of the drug store when he crossed the street, in broad daylight, in the crosswalk! No story in the paper. After 3 attempts I finally got the Sentinel to do a story, 2 weeks later, but KSBW told me they just can’t get clear up here for news…we are too far away!

Vince Rutherford died and the man who was speeding through town in his big fancy car has not been charged, nor arrested!! This is an outrage! If anyone saw this accident on Feb 7 at about 12:45pm please call the CHP. They say the “investigation will take a few weeks. His widow watched it happen and is suffering so much, but the man is out free. Please call our supervisor, the CHP and whomever else we can get to do something about this horrible accident.

The Mountain Bulletin: Verizon Moves Forward with Cell Tower

For a synopsis of the current state of Verizon’s proposed cell tower right in downtown Boulder Creek, click HERE to read Steve Poikonen’s article at the Mountain Bulletin.

From the article:

“My information was based on a statement Chris Currier had made, who stated he no longer supported the tower and expected the application to be withdrawn. Verizon has taken the position that “Mr. Currier is in a contractual arrangement, and Verizon, not Mr. Currier, will decide whether or not to withdraw.” ‘

Downtown Cell Tower still PENDING !

Email below was received on Monday, July 29 from Bruce McPherson’s office.

I’m responding on behalf Supervisor McPherson, who is out of the office. I’m also responding because I was mistaken in saying that Verizon had withdrawn their application. My information was based on Chris Currier, who said he was withdrawing the application. Wishful thinking prevailed and I misstated the situation. Verizon has taken the position that Chris is in a contractual arrangement and cannot withdraw. Today, I talked to Frank Barron, Chris Currier and the agent working on behalf of Verizon. They all confirmed that Verizon is looking for alternative sites. If they can find a decent alternative, they expect to withdraw the application for the Currier site. At this time, however, the application is still active and the hearing is still scheduled for Aug. 23 before Zoning Administrator. ( That hearing very likely will be pushed to a later date because Verizon likely will not have the information requested by the ZA.)

I apologize again for my part in furthering the wrong information.
Sincerely,
Robin
