The Santa Cruz Warriors split a pair of back-to-back home games this past weekend, defeating the Reno Bighorns 95-85 before falling to the Canton Charge, 104-85.  

Dewayne Dedmon had another monster game, scoring a season high 27 points on 12-15 shooting while hauling in 19 rebounds.  He was on fire with his jumper and was crashing the boards on offense, creating second-chance point opportunities for himself and his teammates.  Daniel Nwaelele contributed 17 points, six rebounds and four assists as the Warriors had four players in double figures.  They took the lead on a Dedmon hook shot at the 5:27 mark in the first quarter and did not trail for the rest of the game.  

The next evening, however, nearly the opposite happened as the Warriors fell behind at the 9:17 mark in the first quarter and never caught up.  The Canton Charge (10-5) hit 13 of 17 first-quarter field goal attempts en route to an extremely efficient victory.  With the loss, Santa Cruz fell to 10-8 on the year, good for second place in their division.

McGuire has played six seasons in the NBA for various teams, recording 84 career starts.  He tallied 16 points and 6 rebounds in his debut.

The Warriors will be back in action this Friday at the Kaiser Permanente Arena against the Maine Red Claws at 7:00 P.M.

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Gratitude—For Each New Morning With its Light

The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter). No other sign represents food, music and joy better than Sagittarius (only Pisces, when not in despair). Beginning on Thanksgiving, we can list what we’re grateful for. Then we can continue the list, creating a daily Gratitude Journal. What we are grateful for always increases in our lives. On Thanksgiving Saturn/Neptune square (challenging) is in full effect. This can manifest as traditions not being honored, disappearing, falling away. It can also create a sense of sadness, confusion, of things not working out as planned. It’s best to be as simple as possible. And to focus on gratitude instead. Gratitude is a service to others. It is scientifically and occultly a releasing agent. Releasing us from the past, allowing our future—the new culture and civilization, the new Aquarian laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarius, the Age of Friendship and Equality—to come forth. Gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution for humanity and the world’s problems.” The hierarchy lays great emphasis upon expressing gratitude. Gratitude illuminates all that is in darkness. Let us be grateful during this season together. Being, for others, the light that illuminates the darkness. A Poem by R.W. Emerson: We are grateful … “For each new morning with its light/For rest and shelter of the night/For health and food/For love and friends/For everything thy goodness sends.” (poem by R.W. Emerson). I am grateful for my family of readers.
