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

This ain’t no Burning Man—the MAH’s GLOW festival flames on


Mercury Direct in Libra, Columbus Day, Libra New Moon

Mercury completes its retrograde Friday, poised stationary direct Friday evening at zero degrees Libra. Mercury begins its journey through Libra once again, completing its retrograde shadow Oct. 12. Things should be a bit less complicated by then. Daily life works better, plans move forward, large purchases can be made, and communication eases. Everything on hold during the retrograde is slowly released. Since we eliminated all thoughts and ideas no longer needed (the purpose of Mercury’s retrograde) during the retrograde, we can now gather new information—until the next retrograde occurs on Jan. 5, 2016 (1.3 degrees Aquarius), retrograding back to 15 degrees Capricorn on Jan. 25. It’s good to know beforehand when Mercury will retrograde next—Jan. 5, the day before Epiphany. On Monday is Columbus Day, when the sailor from Genoa arrived in the new lands (Americas), Oct. 12, 1492. This discovery by Columbus was the first encounter of Europeans with Native Americans. Other names for this day are “Discovery Day, Day of the Americas, Cultural Diversity Day, Indigenous People’s Day, and Dia de la Raza.” Italian communities especially celebrate this day. Oct. 12 is also Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Monday is also the (19 degrees) Libra new moon festival. Libra’s keynote while building the personality is, “Let choice be made.” Libra is the sign of making life choices. Often under great tension of opposing forces seeking harmony and balance. There is a battle between our lower (personality) and higher selves (soul). We are tested and called to cultivate right judgment and love. When we align with the will-to-good, right choice, then right judgment and love/wisdom come forth. Our tasks in Libra.
