San Luis Obispo

Gregg Westerbeck of Lake Tahoe, Nev., recently took off on a 3,100-mile bicycle trip from San Diego to St. Augustine, Fla., to raise money for the Grizzly Youth Academy at Camp San Luis Obispo. His wife, Cathy, will be driving along in support, blogging the experience and heading up fundraising activities.

They expect to arrive in St. Augustine around May 15.

The Westerbecks’ son and nephew attended the Grizzly Youth Academy program, where they were able to get back on track and graduate high school, learn great life skills and gain confidence and self-esteem.

Arroyo Grande

The Arroyo Grande High School mock trial team recently represented San Luis Obispo County at the 35th annual mock trial state competition in Sacramento.

Thirty-four teams and more than 700 students from all over the state took part in the contest, which simulates real court proceedings.

After two days of competition, and four very close trials — losing two and winning two — AGHS placed 14th out of the 34 teams.

This is the third year in a row that the school has won at the county level.
