Who is your favorite local politician at the moment?

Who is your favorite local  politician at the moment?

Neal Coonerty because he's sort of a home-grown type guy. I think he's got the best interest at heart for the local people and business, and I certainly hope he is able to persuade some of the other government officials to pay more attention to the problem were having with gangs.

What's the best book you've  read recently, why and what did you learn?

“A Perfect Match” by Jodie Picoult. She's a great novelist and I learned compassion and what it must be like to be a parent, and I don’t want to be one.

What’s the most pressing  community issue that you  would be willing to help solve?

The most pressing local issue that I would help solve would be increasing our capacity to conserve more water and prepare us in the face of drought. Reducing our current usage from 69 gallons per day to 40 gallons per capita per day.

What are the pros and cons of a desalinization plant in Santa Cruz County?

What are the pros and cons of a desalinization plant in  Santa Cruz County?

I think the pros are more jobs in Santa Cruz, people working on the plant, etc. The cons would be if the plant itself creates a lot of pollution or makes a lot of noise in a residential neighborhood, or if it requires an increase in taxes.

What’s your take on the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy for the military?

What’s your take on the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy for the military?

I think it's long overdue that it should be abolished. It's just plain discriminatory, pure and simple. And like all things discriminatory, there’s just no place for it in our society.

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
