What are your thoughts on public transportation in Santa Cruz?

Considering the size of the city, we actually have pretty good public transportation. I used to take it all the time. In fact, I was one of the first riders on the first bus that went up to the university.

I rode it for 33 years, and I don't like it. When you see public transportation in other cities it's a hundred times better. Every year we get higher rates and less service. I just don't agree with it and so I drive.

It would be nice if we had some. We have a good bus system but it's mostly a safety net. And what we really need in Santa Cruz is a tram or a train to connect with systems that are expanding rapidly throughout all of California.

I ride my bike so ultimately I don't really have any issues with the public transportation at all, but I think it would be great if we actually had some way to commute from downtown Santa Cruz to maybe Capitola. I think it would maybe help out with tourism in both areas.

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.

Foodie File: Red Apple Cafe

Breakfast takes center stage at Gracia Krakauer's Red Apple Cafe Before they moved to Aptos, Gracia and her husband Dan Krakauer would visit friends in Santa Cruz County and eat at the Red Apple Café all the time. 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?
