Life—it’s like a big juicy peach that you bite into and allow the juice to spill from your mouth and down your chin and hands. Messy? Yes. But would we have it any other way? Probably not. That said, the nuances of life—and relationships—are explored with vigorous passion as Shakespeare Santa Cruz begins its new season. In this week’s cover story, GT explores the SSC shows—”The Taming of the Shrew,” “Henry V” and “Tom Jones”—by heading behind the scenes. What did we

Summertime has arrived and so, too, has a diverse series of events. 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.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? In this week’s cover story, local LMFT counselor Andrea Wachter  explores a topic that many individuals deal with: body image issues. Wachter is co-founder of InnerSolutions Counseling Services and co-author of “The Don’t Diet, Live-It Workbook.” In her article (page 14), Wachter steers locals toward understanding more about food and body obsession, how to thwart the “body image blues” and why healing through feeling is vital. There’s more, but the work draws attention to a significant issue—an estimated 8 million Americans suffer from a diagnosed eating disorder.

Weird that Works

The Santa Cruz Fringe Festival mixes misfit art and mass appeal

 

Scarab Solar Festival Full Moon

We continue to be under the influence of Cancer (Ray 3, sign of liberty and freedom). Cancer is the gate through which spirit enters matter. Cancer grows new life in its warm waters. Cancer is the crab living in water and on land. Cancer represents our home, family, upbringing, how we nurture and are nurtured. Cancer is our conditioning, influencing all life choices.

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
