Between  Cabrillo Stage (July 12), The Santa Cruz Fringe Festival (July 11) The Santa Cruz Music Festival (July 20), Shakespeare Santa Cruz (opening July 23) and The Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music (Aug. 2), it’s hard to keep up with all the fun things to do in the coming months. July also happens to be quite full at Bookshop Santa Cruz, which, this year, appears to have more authors, speakers and events than it typically has during a summer month.

A recent visit back to Chicago proved to be enlightening.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
