If you found out that you had one year to live, what would you do?

If you found out that you had one year to live, what would you do?
I would go to Paris, buy my mom a
house, go skydiving. What else is on my bucket list? Have a baby, adopt three, and meet Obama.

What’s the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter?

What’s the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter? I'm not sure there is a difference between the two. I think they're both fighting for what they think is right for their people, tribe, culture, or whatever it is they're fighting for. It's the marketing. Terrorist versus the freedom fighters, which sounds better to you?

What's Obama's biggest fight / challenge right now?

What's Obama's biggest fight / challenge right now?

Economics. That’s his biggest thing. If we could choose more than one I would say our terrorist threat as well.

Penni Toledo

Santa Cruz | Salon Manager




Obama's biggest problem is getting back in touch with his liberal base. I think he's cowered down to the Republicans so much that most of the liberals have lost a lot of faith in him. Luckily for him they're still not going to vote Republican.

The budget and public perception that he's doing anything. We love this guy and want him to succeed but can you show us something? Please? We realize you’re working inside doing things that are probably great but could you tell us about it?

Jill Braaten

Oakdale | Editor



His biggest challenge is within himself. He needs to change his personality somewhat so that he becomes more aggressive, assertive, and willing to say who the enemy is and call people for what they're doing. His temperament is too benign so far.

What are your thoughts on the Coastal Commission’s decision to shoot down the La Bahia hotel project?

What are your thoughts on the Coastal Commission’s decision to shoot down the La Bahia hotel project? It's too bad. I know that La Bahia has been trying to improve that building and that area for years. Maybe someone could pull some strings and get the Coastal Commision’s head out of the sand.

Do you trust the Federal Reserve?

Do you trust the  Federal Reserve?

I feel like not only do I not understand what the Federal Reserve is doing. I have doubts whether they understand what they're doing.

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.
