What’s the most underreported local issue of the year?

lt samThe trash and debris that’s left behind by the homeless in all the parks and parking lots, like here at Steamers Lane. It just gets overwhelming and it gets to be an eyesore. When you have friends in town it's kind of embarrassing to drive around and show them a dirty parking lot or dirty park, and trash strewn along Steamers Lane.

lt tomI think it's just the epidemic of bike theft. It's ridiculous! I've had my third bike stolen in Santa Cruz just this year, and I know many other ones. It's a small thing, it's a bicycle, even though sometimes they're expensive, but, for all people in Santa Cruz that are trying to do the right thing environmentally, and a bicycle is part of that, it upsets me that nothing is done about it. I know the technology is there to sting the rip-off. Put a radio tag on it and have the cops sit around the corner, and if they did that for a month or two, and the word got out, it would be less of a problem.

lt jerryFor me, the biggest issue is the chemtrails, the spraying, the geo-engineering. It's a problem, especially in the wintertime. You look up in the sky and see them going back and forth spraying us every day. It's a local, it's a national, it's a worldwide issue, and they're not giving us any information on it, and they're not denying it's happening. It's something that’s just absolutely trashing us all, trashing the earth, and to me that’s number one on my priority.

lt loraliThe needles on the beach and the fact that we’re a tourist town and having all of these homeless and drug encampments and cleanups that residents are doing, which are not being followed up by the city council.

lt kenI would say the Highway One expansion near Morrissey Boulevard. The time it took for them to build it ,and, from what I've read, the expense taken for such a small amount of highway.

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.

What’s your take on Santa Cruz locals?

Santa Cruz locals are really friendly once you know them. I think a lot of them have a hard time leaving, and I would too. Ryan Carle, Santa Cruz, Biologist

 

Soquel Vineyards

If Soquel Vineyards partners Peter and Paul Bargetto and Jon Morgan were walking down the street wearing their winning wine competition medals, you’d hear them coming from a mile away. This year was particularly rewarding for the Bargettos and Morgan—they won two Double Gold Medals and five Gold Medals at January’s San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
