What political system do you think would work best today?

What political system do you think would work best today?

A participatory democracy. If people would participate and unplug the TV for 15
minutes to get down to the voting booth and learn a little bit about the issues, I think that that would go a long way in
solving some of the problems we have.

What’s the best thing Santa Cruz officials could do to help boost the economy?

What’s the best thing Santa Cruz officials could do to help boost the economy?

Support more community evening events. We have our Friday Art walks. I think that that’s an extremely good moneymaker for Santa Cruz. Other art nights, music on the streets, those kind of things I think are good for the economy.

What behavior would you like to eliminate from Santa Cruz?

What behavior would you like to eliminate from Santa Cruz? I think we should eliminate bike theft because it's really awful that people have their bikes stolen. I just bought a new bike so I've been thinking about this lately.

When it comes to relationships, what is super attractive? What is a deal breaker?

When it comes to relationships, what is super attractive?  What is a deal breaker?What’s super attractive to me is confidence and an independent life. The deal breaker would be using the relationship as a distraction from your own life.

What are your thoughts on Occupy Wall Street?

What are your thoughts on Occupy Wall Street?

I think it's wonderful what all the people are doing in all the cities around the country right now in reference to the Wall Street crash and all the problems. And I also think they should take that and take it to the banks and the mortgage companies. I think it's wonderful and I'd like to see more of it.

Mars Enters Scorpio: The Nine Tests

Over the years I’ve mentioned the nine tests of Mars and Scorpio. The tests are given to everyone—unawakened, beginning to awaken, and the awakened. The purpose is to test our strength, courage, ability to adapt, discriminate and have discernment. To see if we are deceived by illusion or are “warriors triumphant, emerging from the battle.”

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
