There’s been a huge breakthrough in efforts to help rebuild the population of some rare frogs which disappeared from the Santa Monica Mountains in the 1970’s.

The National Park Service says a program to help rebuild the population of red legged frogs has hit a milestone.

Investigators are trying to figure out what led to a traffic accident in Ventura County which left two people dead and two seriously injured. The accident happened just after 8 p.m. Tuesday, on Pleasant Valley Road near Longfellow Way in Oxnard. Police say the pickup was speeding westbound on Pleasant Valley Road when the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle, and smashed into an electrical pole and a tree. The driver, identified as Mario Gurrola of Port Hueneme, was pronounced dead at the scene. Paramedics were also unable to save passenger Luis Fernando Hernandez of Oxnard.

Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, who is in her last year of service, is giving her final state of the city address today.
