Warriors win two, lose one to improve to 9-4 overall

Curry Salvation Army1Last Tuesday, the Sea Dubs eked out an overtime win against the Los Angeles D-Fenders by a score of 115-114.  Santa Cruz held a 22-point lead in the fourth quarter before L.A. climbed all the way back to tie the game.  Seth Curry scored a game high 27 points and Dewayne Dedmon logged a huge double-double with 15 points and a Santa Cruz record 21 rebounds.   

The Warriors wore custom red jerseys with a Salvation Army emblem for "Salvation Army Night."  The game-worn jerseys were auctioned off and signed by the players after the game, with all proceeds going to the Salvation Army. 

The Warriors then traveled to Bakersfield, where they fell to the Jam 123-108.  The Warriors were led by Nemanja Nedovic, who led the team with 29 points while on assignment from Golden State.  The Jam shot 59% from the floor as opposed to 45.7% for Santa Cruz.  They were led by Atlanta Hawks assignment player Jared Cunningham, who scored a game-high 30 points. 

The Warriors defeated the division-leading Idaho Stampede 95-91 on Sunday night in front of a sold-out crowd at Kaiser Permanente Arena.  Cameron Jones and Kiwi Gardner each scored 18 points while Dewayne Dedmon recorded his eighth consecutive double-double with 13 points and 18 rebounds to go along with six blocks. 

The Santa Cruz Warriors are headed to Bakersfield to play the Jam again on Saturday, December 28.  They will be back in town Friday, January 3, to take on the Reno Bighorns at 7:00 pm.  Tickets are available at     http://www.nba.com/dleague/santacruz/map__pricing.html

Best of Santa Cruz County 2014

The 2014 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll Come on in, and have a look around. There’s a lot to see—hundreds of winners selected by thousands of GT readers across Santa Cruz County. So if some of this looks familiar, it’s probably because you helped make it happen. But there are always new things to discover, too—you could go to a different winner or runner-up every day in the Food and Drink category alone, and you’d be booked just about until next year’s Best of Santa Cruz County issue comes out.

 

Something Essential Disappears

Lunar and solar eclipses follow one another. Lunar eclipses occur at full moons, and solar eclipses at new moons. Two weeks ago at the full moon we had the blood red moon—a total lunar eclipse (the next one is Oct. 8). On Monday night, April 28 (new moon), as the Sun, Moon and Earth align, a solar eclipse (Sun obscured) occurs. Eclipses signify something irrevocably is changed in our world. The Sun is our essential life force. Monday’s new moon, 9 degrees Taurus, is also an annular solar eclipse when the Moon moves centrally in front of the Sun, yet does not cover the Sun completely. The Sun's outer edges, still visible, form a “ring of fire” around the Moon.

 

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.

Palate-Stretching 101

A wine education with Soif’s experts As a veteran of many weekend wine “seminars” at Soif, I have to confess that I’ve never known less (going in) and learned more (coming out) than I did last week at the Spanish Wine Tasting with ace rep Brian Greenwood. These are classy, casual events and it’s hard to imagine having this much flavor fun anywhere for $20.

 

Martin Ranch Winery

Sauvignon Blanc 2011 One of my favorite wines is Sauvignon Blanc, and this one made by Martin Ranch is particularly lovely. Bright, crisp and refreshing, it’s perfect to pair with fish and shellfish—and good for picnics as it has an easy screw-cap bottle. There’s nothing worse than setting down your blanket, pulling out your sandwiches—and then realizing you don’t have a corkscrew.

 

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. Then they moved up here from Santa Monica five years ago, and bought the Aptos location (there’s a separate one in Watsonville) from the family who owned it for two decades.

 

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
