Are you ready for the big one?

Are you ready for the big one?

What would make you more proud of the United States?

What would make you more proud of the United States?

What would make me more proud of the U.S. is if we had a tax code where the top 2 percent and the corporations paid their fair share of taxes where the country had the money to solve our problems, to help the poor and to help middle class folks find employment.

The Disc Golf 2011 World Championships Happen This Summer in the Monterey Bay Area. Are You Playing?
If I'm in, I'll play. It's all about qualifying for most players, but for me, I paid my
membership dues to the PDGA as an Open player and I'll get on the waiting list.

Do you feel safe in your neighborhood?

Do you feel safe in  your neighborhood?
I do. I live on the Westside and feel totally safe. It's pitch black outside of my house and I've never felt unsafe there. In the beach area it can feel a little sketchy, but not around my house.

If you could open up a new business here, what would it be?

If you could open up a new business here, what would it be?

If I could open anything, it would be a shop that would allow many different artists to come, create and sell their things. I feel like there are so many people out there with such great talent, but there’s not a lot of places for people to practice or sell their stuff.

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
