In light of the one-year anniversary of the death of two police officers in Santa Cruz, how are you feeling about public safety locally?

lt doriWell, I've always felt pretty safe in Santa Cruz, and although that was a shattering experience for our community, I still feel pretty safe here. I think we have a great sense of togetherness, really good support services for homeless people and others, and I think I feel no less secure now than I did a year ago.

lt peggyI'm kind of concerned about public safety and drugs all around the town. I work in San Jose for Department of Drug and Alcohol Services with Department of Corrections and it's getting scarier. There’s not enough being done and people aren’t going outside their doors in Santa Cruz because of all the crime going on down here.

lt jimIt seems all right except we still have a big homeless drug problem that isn’t being solved.

lt nicholasI'm feeling pretty good. I know there's a bit of crime around but I guess if I feel it’s my time to go, it's my time to go. It's kind of the way I view life.

lt aaronThese types of things happen now and then. It doesn’t mean we’re less or more safe, it's just going to happen again sometime. We don’t have to freak out. Nothing’s really changed.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
