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 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.

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.

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)

Bargetto Winery

A much-anticipated annual event at Bargetto Winery is the release of their very special La Vita red wine. June 7 was the day to be heralded this year, and I happily squeezed my car into their overloaded car park in eager anticipation of tasting the new La Vita nectar.
