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.

Best of Santa Cruz 2015

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

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
