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.

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
