Are you worried about radiation in seafood?

Are you worried about radiation in seafood?

I am very worried about the radiation that’s coming from Fukushima, and I don’t know how it's showing up—whether it's in seafood, or just through the air. But I think we are being impacted. I'll bet you if we checked with the local hospitals on people’s lymphs and things like that ... I know I've experienced a little of that and I'm having some tests. I’m not eating any fish.

What do you think the role of public art is, or could be, in our community?

What do you think the role of public art is, or could be, in our community?

The art in this community that we have, [like] Tom Scribner's statue, is a gathering place—as is a lot of the fine sculpture. I think it’s a part of the community that brings us all together, and I hope that we have a lot more of it.

What does the term, ‘take back Santa Cruz’ mean to you?

What does the term, ‘take back Santa Cruz’ mean to you?

Taking back Santa Cruz means feeling more safe on our streets in the night, being able to be out with our families and our friends in the evening and not worrying about getting hurt, or attacked, or being in our parks after sunset without worrying about what we might find. I've been at a lot of parks with my niece and found a lot of needles in the sand. So, not having to worry so much about what we’re doing and just enjoying our lives more.

What changes would you like to see for Santa Cruz in the coming year?

What changes would you like to see for Santa Cruz in the coming year?

Better public transportation options, and crack down on crazy drivers who imperil bikers because it's terrifying to bicycle here. More rain.

What are your thoughts on New Year’s resolutions? Do you make them?

What are your thoughts on New Year’s resolutions? Do you make them?

Any resolution is a good resolution, it doesn’t have to be on New Year’s. You want to change yourself or your life, go ahead. I don’t make them.

A Different Revolution

Aries Moon late Wednesday and Thursday. We think new thoughts and initiate new ideas. Sun in Virgo with Saturn in Scorpio help disciples to create orderly structures to anchor and bring forth new ideas. Stabilizing Taurus moon Friday and Saturday. We anchor new ideas into form and matter, like seeds planted in the soil. We tend them, waiting for green shoots to emerge. Like the gestating Virgo Sun Madonna, awaiting the birth of the holy child, the Soul, the new light at winter solstice. Mercury and Chiron converse about what hurts and what heals.Saturday is a complex day with Mercury (communication), Mars (action!) and Uranus (revolution). Mercury in Libra is opposite Uranus in Aries. Oppositions (recognizing something new appearing over there somewhere) eventually synthesize. Mercury in Libra calls for Right Action and Right Relations, especially with money. Uranus in Aries—the revolution this time must be different.  Also on Saturday, Mars enters Sagittarius. Where are we going, what are our goals, where’s justice, where’s the mountain, do we have good shoes? Sunday Venus trines Pluto—in-depth assessment of money, values and resources. Gemini moon Monday; we talk a lot, tending to tasks in gardens and neighborhoods. Cancer Moon Tuesday and Wednesday; we nurture and nourish. The stars and planets remind us.Note: William Meader, esoteric author & international teacher, will be speaking on “The Soul of Humanity Evolving Through Crisis” at Meditation Mount, 7pm, Friday, Sept. 12.

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
