The 411

kioskSANTA CRUZ > New information kiosk aims to help people navigate Santa Cruz

What’s the closest beach? How do I get to the Museum of Art & History? How far is the Mystery Spot? Is there a good breakfast spot around here?

“If we weren’t here, who would you ask that question [to]?” says Chip, the Downtown Association executive director who goes by one name, with a grin.

“We have so much information that we’re just waiting to give out,” chimes in Kim Luke, the Downtown Association communications director. The two are standing inside of the new Downtown Santa Cruz Information Kiosk, an info hub that is now open in front of the New Leaf Community Market on Pacific Avenue.

The kiosk hopes to be able to provide both locals and visitors alike with any and all the 411 that they can about Santa Cruz’s multitude of attractions. The staff has plenty of resources and guides on hand, from a large book of restaurant menus to personalized recommendations for events, music and theater shows, and everything in between.

“This is a conduit for people to really take advantage of it down here,” says Chip.  The staff believes the kiosk will not only be able to provide information for those who are just visiting Santa Cruz, but also to help locals get to know their own city on a deeper, more detailed level. “This is also an important way to support connections with people and our businesses,” Chip adds.

There will be a grand opening and ribbon cutting for the Information Kiosk tonight, Friday, May 17, at 5 p.m. The info center is located at 1130 Pacific Ave., K2, and is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, and until 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings.

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
