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.

Mars Enters Scorpio: The Nine Tests

Over the years I’ve mentioned the nine tests of Mars and Scorpio. The tests are given to everyone—unawakened, beginning to awaken, and the awakened. The purpose is to test our strength, courage, ability to adapt, discriminate and have discernment. To see if we are deceived by illusion or are “warriors triumphant, emerging from the battle.”

Best of Santa Cruz County

The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX
