Salinas – Tuesdays are almost always long days for Mike Cunnane. In addition to managing food services on the Hartnell College campus in Salinas, he finishes off many Tuesdays by preparing a meal for 100-plus community members.
The tradition started 25 years ago when Hartnell hired this former restaurateur to launch a new culinary program. The program quickly ended after failing to draw in enough students, but its legacy lives on today in the form of weekly international dinners.
Monterey – All week long the Research Vessel Fulmar has set out in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary with a crew of photographers, audio engineers and scientists. The crew is part of a show called Immersion Presents Monterey Bay, a 30-minute internet program that is streaming live into schools and Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation.
