lt aaronFinding a way to promote local businesses so that they're still around when tourist season comes. I know Capitola is doing ads for all their new [businesses] on the radio. Finding a way to keep local business alive helps.

lt emma[They should emphasize] all the free fun things to do in Santa Cruz County with your family that are kid friendly, such as the beaches and the county parks, and the monarchs. We love disc golfing. Things like that.

lt jackI would say concentrating on the fun. Just improve the carefree nature of Santa Cruz to visitors that have had a rough week over the hill and need a good lift. I would suggest one way to do that is to reduce the substantial fines for parking meters in the downtown business area. There's been a big increase over the years, and I don’t think it turns on many visitors. If they overstay a couple minutes they get a huge fine. I think that would improve our overall attractiveness.

As top tourist destination small town politics are arcane & festivities like Halloween, 4th of July & other large events hampered by overly aggressive police forces taking all the joy out of such events. To barricade & police tape entire beachfront on 4th of July an utter disgrace! No alcohol on beaches> What is this Nazi Germany?

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
