Two people have been arrested for the shooting of a Yolo man on Thursday, the Yolo County Sheriff's Office said.

Maximiliano Salas, 49, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He is in the Monroe Detention Center on $170,000 bail.

Salas' girlfriend, Janet Joy Garcia, 49, is charged with felon in possession of a firearm with criminal enhancements, the sheriff's office said. She is being held on higher bail - $1,090,000 - due to the criminal enhancements.

Couple: End of a lifetime of waiting about SCOTUS to decide on same-sex marriage


The U.S. Supreme Court said it will decide whether same-sex couples nationwide should have a right to marry under the Constitution.

The justices said Friday they will review an appellate ruling that upheld bans on same-sex unions in four states. The case will be argued in April and a decision is expected by late June.

For Davis couple Shelly Bailes and Ellen Pontac, legally married since the Summer 2008, it feels like the end of a lifetime of waiting.

"There are 36 states that have marriage equality. There's only 14 left and 59 percent of the people of the United States believe in marriage equality," Bailes said. "There's really no reason to vote against it."

Former federal prosecutor Bill Portanova said the U.S. Supreme Court has wanted to hear from the people and from legislators at the state level.

Man scooped up by Woodland garbage truck survives ride


WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) - A man searching for his wallet in a trash bin in Northern California was scooped up by a garbage truck and taken on a long ride.

The Oroville Mercury Register reports the man survived the ride in the rear of a garbage truck. His name was not released.

Yolo County Sheriff's Lt. Martin Torres said the man got struck in the trash truck when it made a pick-up Tuesday. The truck was headed to a landfill.

Torres said the man told police he was stuck in the truck for about an hour.

Authorities said the man told police he used lumber in the truck to reach the top of the garbage pile and avoid the compactor.

The man was taken to UC Davis Medical Center for complaints of back and neck pain.

Record number of students applied to UC Davis


College applications are in, and students are now anxiously waiting for the letter that will define their future.

When Yolanda Franklin got hers, it meant a new beginning.

"I wanted to move up in my career," said Franklin, a re-entry student at UC Davis. "And in order to move up, to become management, you had to have a bachelor's degree."

She said going back to school was the best decision she made, but for others it was a necessity.

"For me, it was my only choice," UC Davis graduate Suzan Azeredo said.

Azeredo got laid off in 2008 and getting a new job was almost impossible.

"I was competing with other people for jobs," Azeredo explained. "My experience was not enough because I didn't have any degrees."
