What’s so weird about Santa Cruz?

What’s so weird about  Santa Cruz?


I made up my own bumper sticker, it says "Santa Cruz wasn't weird until you got here." I think what makes Santa Cruz weird is UCSC.

Is it easy to get around Santa Cruz by car? What would make it better?

Is it easy to get around Santa Cruz by car? What would make it better?

No, it's not easy to get around Santa Cruz by car and one of the major issues living on the Westside is Mission Street. People always want to make left-hand turns and there's no turn lanes for a lot of it. Also, I'd have to say the way traffic is fed onto Highway 1 at the fishhook is absolutely horrendous. I don’t have a response to that but it's diabolical.

How can Santa Cruz County effectively reduce its high level of unemployment?

How can Santa Cruz County effectively reduce its high level of unemployment?

By supporting programs like project Bike Trip. It's a job training and ROP program where we train kids and bike mechanics in bike assembly and repair. It acts as a stepping stone to a multitude of industry career paths such as fabrication, marketing, videography and more.

What makes James Durbin ROCK?

What makes James Durbin ROCK?And what are his chances at making it to No. 1 on ‘Idol’?
I think he's amazing because he's a young kid and he's not afraid of what other people think about him—to be up there and do his own thing like that. He has a very good chance.

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
