What’s the best thing that happened in Santa Cruz County this year? And the worst?

Definitely the worst thing that has happened over the last year in Santa Cruz has been the rise in gang violence. The best thing would have to be the increase in community activities and involvement.

The best things that happened this year in Santa Cruz were that Jozseph Shultz re-opened India Joze and my daughter

Alex became an adult. The worst were the Vets hall closed down, and my daughter Isabella will be a teenager in January.

Worst thing to happen in Santa Cruz this year would be the senseless murders of Tyler Tenorio and Carl Reimer earlier this year. The best thing to happen in Santa Cruz this year was the collective efforts of our community to combat gang violence and street crime through groups like Take Back Santa Cruz.

I think the worst thing to happen in Santa Cruz was the misguided May Day riot. It harmed local business, made a mess and did more harm than whatever good was supposed to come from the message. The best thing? I'm really glad that India Joze is back!

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.

Then they moved up here from Santa Monica five years ago, and bought the Aptos location (there’s a separate one in Watsonville) from the family who owned it for two decades.

 

How would you feel about a tech industry boom in Santa Cruz?
