What should Obama have his sights set on in 2011?


Obama should try to clean up the mess that was made before he was in office, get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan and bring our boys back home.

What are your thoughts on WikiLeaks and Julian Assange?

What are your thoughts on WikiLeaks and Julian Assange?

He's providing a very important service for the country, if not the world. Unfortunately we live in a system that really demands questions and one that often doesn't provide answers. This is a vehicle maybe for that kind of freedom of thought and expression that probably can't be obtained in any other way.

What businesses should go into the Rittenhouse Building in  Santa Cruz?
I'd like to see a quality music venue on this corner. We could use another venue in Santa Cruz that had Blues, R&B, Reggae— just the whole genre of music to give us better alternatives for music.

If you had your way, what would be one thing you’d like to see in Santa Cruz County that isn’t already set in place?

If you had your way, what would be one thing you’d like to see in Santa Cruz County that isn’t already set in place?

I think that we should have a public amphitheatre in the downtown area, very simple but beautiful—maybe cement so it can be used anytime for people to eat lunch, and also be available for people for art, presentations, whatever, to use a public space to express themselves.

What’s the best thing that happened in Santa Cruz County this year? And the worst?

What’s the best thing that  happened in Santa Cruz County this year? And the worst?

 

Definitely the worst thing that has happened over the last year in Santa Cruz has been the rise in gang violence. The best thing would have to be the increase in community activities and involvement.

A Year of Creative Self-Expression

Wednesday, after a year in Cancer’s nourishing waters, Jupiter enters fiery Leo. Next Tuesday, the sun joins Jupiter in Leo. Leo is the sign of the three fires of life, of seeking our individuality, our gifts and talents. Life for the next year will be quite dramatic, expressive, creative and generous. Jupiter, the heart of Aquarius, is the planet of expansion and truth, distributing Ray 2 of Love and Wisdom.

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

 

Loma Prieta’s Pinotage

Although drinking alone is not half as much fun as drinking with others, after a busy day of dashing around, I came home and poured myself a glass or two of Loma Prieta’s Pinotage 2010 (saving a bit for my husband). There’s something about taking that first sip of a worthy wine that gives one an all-over glow.
