Tarmo Hannula: The Pajaronian debuted our lifestyle magazine, Pajaro Valley, on Friday. Give it a look.

Tarmo Hannula: I’ve noticed gas prices edging down over the past few weeks. Regular was $3.55 a gallon on Soquel Avenue Thursday in Santa Cruz. On Friday on 41st Avenue the 76 Station in Capitola had regular at $3.59, and in Watsonville it was $3.59 at the 76 Station on Freedom Boulevard.

Tarmo Hannula: On Friday morning the U.S. House Judiciary Committee approved two impeachment charges against President Trump, now shifting the process toward a full House vote next week. Trump meanwhile has sent out hundreds of Tweets and made numerous public appearances denouncing the whole thing as a hoax, a sham, a witch hunt, a lie, a waste of time, and now a big plus for his re-election campaign. “The do-nothing Democrats are a disgrace,” Trump recently Tweeted.

Tarmo Hannula: I attended a retirement party for Gretchen Regenhardt, directing attorney at California Rural Legal Assistance in Watsonville, last night at Jalisco’s restaurant. There were about 50 people there including the new Watsonville Mayor, Rebecca Garcia, and a wealth of local dignitaries, family and friends. It was an upbeat affair with many weighing in with words of praise and deep respect. She caps a 40-year career.

Tarmo Hannula: Last night my wife Sarah and I drove around Watsonville in search of dazzling Christmas light displays. As darkness came on it was exciting to see the various approaches people take to lighting up their homes and yards. Some had bright glowing wreaths while others rimmed their homes with strands of lights. There were a few live trees aglow with bulbs and one we found on Hill Avenue with impressive rotating laser lights. Some of my photos will run next week in the Pajaronian and online. As far as we saw, the Medina home, on the corner of Gardner Avenue and Vic Rugh Ln., took the grand prize.
