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 donI think what could be done is to crack down more on the transient, criminal element in town.

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.

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Gratitude—For Each New Morning With its Light

The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter). No other sign represents food, music and joy better than Sagittarius (only Pisces, when not in despair). Beginning on Thanksgiving, we can list what we’re grateful for. Then we can continue the list, creating a daily Gratitude Journal. What we are grateful for always increases in our lives. On Thanksgiving Saturn/Neptune square (challenging) is in full effect. This can manifest as traditions not being honored, disappearing, falling away. It can also create a sense of sadness, confusion, of things not working out as planned. It’s best to be as simple as possible. And to focus on gratitude instead. Gratitude is a service to others. It is scientifically and occultly a releasing agent. Releasing us from the past, allowing our future—the new culture and civilization, the new Aquarian laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarius, the Age of Friendship and Equality—to come forth. Gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution for humanity and the world’s problems.” The hierarchy lays great emphasis upon expressing gratitude. Gratitude illuminates all that is in darkness. Let us be grateful during this season together. Being, for others, the light that illuminates the darkness. A Poem by R.W. Emerson: We are grateful … “For each new morning with its light/For rest and shelter of the night/For health and food/For love and friends/For everything thy goodness sends.” (poem by R.W. Emerson). I am grateful for my family of readers.
