What is the most overlooked issue in the county, and what can we do about it now?

What is the most overlooked issue in the county, and what can we do about it now?

I think water pollution is the main issue. And I think we need to address it because in the near future we’re going to be out of clean water, especially since it's radiated now. Drinking water is going to be a major issue.

Describe the ideal reality show based in Santa Cruz.

Describe the ideal reality show based in Santa Cruz.

I think my ideal reality show about Santa Cruz would be following the youth that live here and all of the different challenges that they face—their triumphs, the social interactions. I think that would be pretty interesting.

What would get you to do more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

What would get you to do  more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

Just lower prices I think. More advertising. I do try to shop locally as much as possible but sometimes the price is too high. It's understandable as to why they are what they are, but lower prices would help a lot.

Blocking access to UCSC

Blocking access to UCSC

Do you think blocking access to the UCSC campus is an effective form of protest? Why?


Yes, it's an effective form of protest because it gets attention, and that’s what they want.

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.
