• Poetry Out Loud Results: Arwa Awan takes it again! (picture)

    For the second year in a row, Arwa Awan has taken County honors in Poetry Out Loud for her stirring recitations of first, “Becoming a Redwood” by Dana Gioia and secondly “The Legend” by Garrett Hongo. It was enough to bring tears to one’s eyes! First time ever, there was a tie for runner-up between Sharmaine Sun of Santa Catalina School and Carissa Redfield of Carmel High School, but after a “shootout” where they each repeated the poem of their choice, Sharmaine came out runner-up. Should Arwa for any reason not be able to take Monterey County’s flag to Sacramento later — in March on the 24th and 25th — Sharmaine will do so. CONGRATULATIONS, ARWA, AND WELL DONE! Video, when available will go onto our website at www.cedarstreettimes.com under the “Our Poet” tab. In fact, if you want to see her performance from last year, it’s there!

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
