What do you think about the Good Times/Santa Cruz Weekly merger?

lt P.J.The announcement came out on April Fools’, and I laughed.

lt sharronWell, if it means better readership then I think it's a good idea. As long as it doesn’t become so big that it loses its community feeling.

lt carlosI'm looking forward to the Weekly Good Times!

lt brookeIt's not very surprising given that most of journalism is in a shrinking state on a fast decline. I think that if people are willing to pay for content, that’s where the better journalism is going to happen anyways.

lt reeveI dropped out of high school in the ninth grade, I don’t even know what merger means. It sounds good though! Go Giants!

I don't think merger is quite the correct word for this, I believe it is more of an acquisition(take over). I've never cared for the SCWeekly paper, so this disappoints me. I'm sure some think this is a good thing however I am sure it's not for all that are employed by the GOODTIMES, if I am correct most if not all will be fired and replaced by SC Weekly employees and the paper will be SC Weekly with the cover of the GOODTIMES. Only time will tell. And all of locals will see.
There'll be less free reading matter in the cafes, but I hope for a superior product

I'll miss getting separate local weeklies on both Wednesday and Thursday, but I'm hoping that the merged product will be superior to them both.

Making a Scene

As it celebrates its 30th year, Santa Cruz County’s Open Studios is one of the most successful in the country—and a make-or-break event for many local artists


A Ritual & Initiation

The Pope has come and gone, but his loving presence ignited new hope and goodness in many. While he was in NYC, China’s ruler arrived in Washington D.C. East (China) and West (Rome), meeting in the middle, under Libra, balancing sign of Right Relations. The Pope arrived at Fall Equinox. Things initiated at Fall Equinox are birthed at Winter Solstice. The Pope’s presence was a ritual, an initiation rite—like the Dalai Lama’s visits—offering prayers, teachings and blessings. Rituals anchor God’s plan into the world, initiating us to new realities, new rules. The Pope’s presence brings forth the Soul of the United States, its light piercing the veils of materialism. The Pope’s visit changed things. New questions arise, new reasons for living. A new wave of emerging life fills the air. Like a cocoon shifting, wings becoming visible. The winds are different now. Calling us to higher vision, moral values, virtues that reaffirm and offer hope for humanity. A changing of the guard has occurred. Appropriately, this is the week of the Jewish Festival of Sukkoth (’til Oct. 4), when we build temporary homes (little huts in nature), entering into a harvest of prayer and thanksgiving, understanding our fragile and impermanent existences. We are summoned to reflect upon our lives, our humanity, our nature, our spirit and each other. Offering gratitude, becoming a magnet for others. We observe. We see the needs. We love more.
