Goal Getters

After months of surveying and picking the brains of more than 3,000 local residents, the Santa Cruz County Community Assessment Project (CAP) has released the results for their five-year county goals. The set of goals for 2015 range from economic aims (such as “increase the percentage of economic activity with Santa Cruz County by 10 percent and “re-localize” 10 percent of our commuting workforce”) to hopes for the natural environment (including to “develop a local sustainable food system: all community members have access to affordable locally grown food produced in a sustainable manner that preserves farmland fertility”). The CAP has been helping set community goals since 1994, and now annually tracks and measures the progress of each goal. Visit santacruzcountycap.org for the complete list of 2015 goals.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
