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.

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
