• Photo Captures Whale Of A Tale In Santa Cruz

    SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KSBW) -- During a Santa Cruz County Visitors Council photo shoot the group noticed some whales off the side of their boat.

    All of a sudden, two huge jubilant whales breached the surface simultaneously within a few feet of a kayaker. Local photographer Paul Schraub snapped photos.

    The kayaker, Alan Brady, said the whales were so close that he had to duck to keep one whale's tail from hitting him.

    The shoreline behind the whales is Seabright State Beach in Santa Cruz. Council communications director Christina Glynn called it a once in a once-in-a-lifetime photo.

  • SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified a suspect in the slaying of a high-ranking member of the Hells Angels who was shot and killed at a funeral for another member in Northern California.

    San Jose police say Steven Ruiz, also a member of the motorcycle gang, shot and killed 52-year-old Steve Tausan on Saturday during a fight at the funeral for Jeffrey "Jethro" Pettigrew. About 3,000 people attended the ceremony at Oak Hill Memorial Park.

    On Tuesday, police said Ruiz was fighting with a member of the gang when he was knocked to the ground. Tausan apparently became involved and Ruiz drew a handgun and shot Tausan.

    Ruiz is now missing. Investigators say they dug up Pettigrew's grave to see if Ruiz may have been killed and buried there, but didn't find anything.

    Tausan was a high-ranking member of the Hells Angels and an enforcer of club rules who sported a tattoo on his wrist that read "Mr. 187," a reference to the California penal code for homicide.
