What are you all about?

What are you all about?


I hunt bike thieves. I hate 'em! Scum! They got to go! I've recovered a lot of expensive bikes, more than the cops do. And to the bike thieves I say beware! I will get you!

Do you think the Boy Scouts should change their policy and allow gays to join?

Do you think the Boy Scouts should change their policy and allow gays to join?

No they should not. That would be absolutely horrifying to let gay men handle the Boy Scouts.

Do you think police should have to live in the community they serve?

Do you think police should have to live in the community they serve?

It's definitely preferable that they live in the communities they serve. I used to be the mayor of Santa Cruz, so I understand that police have difficulty finding housing like everyone else. The city needs to do more to make it available to all types of city employees, so that they can understand the community they're in—being located here.

What’s one socially acceptable behavior that you wish didn’t exist?

What’s one socially acceptable behavior that you wish didn’t exist?

Texting. If you’re having a meal with somebody and your trying to talk to them and they're using their phone, I think it's kind of rude. People think it's acceptable, but it can be kind of annoying.

What’s the best thing about the Warriors being in Santa Cruz thus far?

What’s the best thing about the Warriors being in Santa Cruz thus far?

The best thing is the vibe. You know what I mean? It gives a good vibe to Santa Cruz, and there are a lot of people here that like basketball and they like sports. It gives the families out here something to do, and it's something to do downtown.

The Meaning of ‘LIFE’

With a new documentary film about his work, and huge exhibits on both coasts, acclaimed Santa Cruz nature photographer Frans Lanting is having a landmark year. But his crusade for conservation doesn’t leave much time for looking back

 

Seasons of Opportunity

Everything in our world has a specific time (a season) in which to accomplish a specific work—a “season” that begins (opportunity) and ends (time’s up). I can feel the season is changing. The leaves turning colors, the air cooler, sunbeams casting shadows in different places. It feels like a seasonal change has begun in the northern hemisphere. Christmas is in four months, and 2015 is swiftly speeding by. Soon it will be autumn and time for the many Festivals of Light. Each season offers new opportunities. Then the season ends and new seasons take its place. Humanity, too, is given “seasons” of opportunity. We are in one of those opportunities now, to bring something new (Uranus) into our world, especially in the United States. Times of opportunity can be seen in the astrology chart. In the U.S. chart, Uranus (change) joins Chiron (wound/healing). This symbolizes a need to heal the wounds of humanity. Uranus offers new archetypes, new ways of doing things. The Uranus/Chiron (Aries/Pisces) message is, “The people of the U.S. are suffering. New actions are needed to bring healing and well-being to humanity. So the U.S. can fulfill its spiritual task of standing within the light and leading humanity within and toward the light.” Thursday, Aquarius Moon, Mercury enters Libra. The message, “To bring forth the new order in the world, begin with acts of Goodwill.” Goodwill produces right relations with everyone and everything. The result is a world of progressive well-being and peacefulness (which is neither passive nor the opposite of war). Saturday is the full moon, the solar light of Virgo streaming into the Earth. Our waiting now begins, for the birth of new light at winter solstice. The mother (hiding the light of the soul, the holy child), identifying the feminine principle, says, “I am the mother and the child. I, God (Father), I Matter (Mother), We are One.”

Comanche Cellars

Michael Simons, owner and winemaker of Comanche Cellars, once had a trusted steed called Comanche, which was part of his paper route and his rodeo circuit, from the tender age of 10. In memory of this beautiful horse, he named his winery Comanche, and Comanche’s shoes grace the label of each handcrafted bottle.
