News Panel: Dow Jones High, Devil's Slide, and more
From across California, thousands mourned the murders of two Santa Cruz police officers killed during a routine investigation. The long and troubled criminal history of the killer raises questions about the criminal justice system.
The Dow Jones hit a twelve-year record high this week. Is it a temporary uptick or does it suggest a broader economic recovery? With new data out on job growth, how are Bay Area companies doing?
Commuters driving the coastal route between Santa Cruz and San Francisco can expect a different view next month. A dangerous stretch of Highway 1, known as Devil's Slide, will soon be re-routed away from the steep cliffs to new state-of-the-art mile-long tunnels.
