The Good News Herald's goal is to partner with churches and non-profits to enhance and amplify the efforts of local congregations and organizations in Salinas and neighboring community.
The Salinas Police Department is committed to group violence reduction strategies. This is a great opportunity to hear Dr. Kennedy, the architect of Boston Ceasefire, share his vision for youth violence prevention and how group violence reduction strategies are working on a national scale. His presentation will inform you on national trends and will help you understand our local efforts and the role you may play.
Dr. Kennedy will be at the World Theater, CSUMB on Friday, March 28. There is no cost for admission. More info and registration is at:

I DON'T CARE TOO MUCH for birthdays-at least not mine. They used to be fun, but today they are harsh reminders that I don't look 30 anymore. Time has passed. The carefree days of youth have been replaced by the pressures of adulthood. We spend our younger years craving maturity, but when we attain it we suddenly realize we don't want the gray hair, the slowed metabolism or the aches and pains that come with age. Read More

One girl is writing hymns and posting them on the Internet. That was where she learnt of Christ and has “met” workers, although she has yet to meet other Christians face to face.
