The rain arrived, but is the drought over? For that matter, have the area’s other water issues waned? Hardly. This week, ponder our News story beginning on page 6, which reports on the arrival of Rosemary Menard, the new water director for the City of Santa Cruz. Among other things, Menard will most likely have to address a number of issues that have captured attention—from desalination to what the area will need to keep its watershed in a healthy zone. Read on, and send us your thoughts about water issues to [email protected]
In case you’ve been thirsty for something lively and robust, look no further than former American Idol contender/local icon James Durbin, who hits The Catalyst this week. Durbin’s new album has been generating some buzz so no doubt locals will support that new endeavor. Learn more about Durbin and what’s been unfolding in his life lately in our feature story.

The county has long been eyeing water issues. For the last few years, desalination has been a major topic of discussion, but after desal talks were put on hold last fall, few could have predicted that the current drought would be a major topic of discussion this winter and spring. Now, Santa Cruz officials are directing efforts to examine the city’s water supply issues, which includes the launch of the Water Supply Advisory Committee. GT’s Jessica M. Pasko covers the topic at length in this week’s News section, beginning on page 6. Read on, learn more, and keep the dialogue alive by sending us your thoughts online at gtweekly.com or emailing us at [email protected]

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.
