What more could be done to combat bike theft in Santa Cruz?

lt steveUse the bicycle lockers downtown, they're five cents an hour, they're all over town. There's one by the bus stop, one by the Goodwill. You just have to look for them. You always wonder what those green boxes are.

lt isabelleBait bikes. Set up a nice bike with a high- end lock and arrest the person that can cut through it. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

lt edwardDevelop an electronic locator device in them like Lo-Jack for bikes. And then at least you may be able to find where people are stashing them.

lt tylerYou definitely need to register your bike with the county. You get a little sticker, you put it on your bike so whenever it gets stolen you can give that number to the police and they have a way to track down your bike. It's really important to get a U-lock as well as a cord lock so you can lock up your front tire.

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.
