Hundreds of trucks are hauling mud from Montecito’s mudflow disaster to Goleta Beach. While the work is being completed, the beach waters are closed.

A posted sign at the beach is causing confusion among people who think everything there is closed.   

SLO HotHouse

There’s renewed effort to encourage innovators and entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses in a particular area on the Central Coast. 

Cal Poly’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship runs the SLO HotHouse, a collaborative effort with the county, city and local business community aimed at building a startup culture in San Luis Obispo County.

For six years, it has helped students start their own businesses. Now, with its new 15,000-square-foot location in downtown San Luis Obispo, the SLO HotHouse will also be a place for members of the community to grow their startups.
