Will's most recent book of poems, Unsettled accounts, won the 2009 Hollis Summers Poetry Prize and was published in February of 2010 by Ohio University/Swallow Press. On its basis, he was chosen as a Walter E. Dakin Fellow in Poetry for the 2010 Sewanee Writer's Conference and as 2010 Ohio Poet of the year (selected by the State Library of Ohio). He has previously won an Individual Endowment for the Humanities, most of which have involved translation of various Italian poets. Most recently, this involved translating the sonnets of Sara Coppia Sullam during the NEH Summer Institute of "Venice, The Jews and Italian Culture" in 2006. Subsequent presentations and articles have focused upon the translation of Sullam's sonnets. Other N.E.H experiences included a summer Institute on Literary Translation at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1988. His previous volume of poems, Conversing with the Light, was chosen by Henry Taylor for the 1987 Anhinga Prize and published by Anhinga press of Tallahassee. He has also translated Umberto Saba's first volume of poems, Trieste and a Lady, and that volume is currently in circulation with publishers. His current poetry manuscript, tentatively, titled Scraps and Damaged Lots, is nearly finished. He serves as Professor of English and Dean of Arts & Sciences at Rhodes State College in Ohio.

Cardinal Grand Cross in the Sky

Following Holy Week (passion, death and burial of the Pisces World Teacher) and Easter Sunday (Resurrection Festival), from April 19 to the 23, the long-awaited and discussed Cardinal Cross of Change appears in the sky, composed of Cardinal signs Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn, with planets (13-14 degrees) Uranus (in Aries), Jupiter (in Cancer), Mars (in Libra) and Pluto (in Capricorn), an actual geometrical square or cross configuration. Cardinal signs mark the seasons of change, initiating new realities.

 

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.

    Foodie File: Red Apple Cafe

    Breakfast takes center stage at Gracia Krakauer's Red Apple Cafe Before they moved to Aptos, Gracia and her husband Dan Krakauer would visit friends in Santa Cruz County and eat at the Red Apple Café all the time.

    How would you feel about a tech industry boom in Santa Cruz?

    I feel like it would ruin the small old-town feeling of Santa Cruz. It wouldn’t be the same Surf City kind of vacation town that it is. Antoinette BennettSanta Cruz | Construction Management

     

    Trout Gulch Vineyards

    Cinsault 2012—la grande plage diurne The most popular wines on store shelves are those most generally known and available—Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which are all superb for sure.
