Would you support turning West Cliff Drive into a one-way street?

lt_dawnNo. West Cliff going one way would not
be a good idea. People should be able to
go both ways. Maybe Mission Street.

I dont know what the rationale is behind it. If it’s

to make a wider path for bikers and runners,

which I'm assuming, I would say yes it's a good idea.

No, because it makes things more difficult to find your way around and you can go either way and look at everything. It just makes it a lot easier being both ways.

I would, and I'd like to see more room for the cyclists since the pedestrians have taken over

the bike lane—everybody wants to walk on West Cliff.

If they would follow the rules it would be okay, but so few do.

YES! And make it 1-way as part of a managed retreat plan for the coastline. No more boulders, no more seawalls, unless we want to end up with without beaches, coves, or good surfspots. The Army Corps has destroyed our coastline to protect the road and a few rich people's houses. Cliffs erode, that's life...

Following Holy Week (passion, death and burial of the Pisces World Teacher) and Easter Sunday (Resurrection Festival), from April 19 to the 23, the long-awaited and discussed Cardinal Cross of Change appears in the sky, composed of Cardinal signs Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn, with planets (13-14 degrees) Uranus (in Aries), Jupiter (in Cancer), Mars (in Libra) and Pluto (in Capricorn), an actual geometrical square or cross configuration. Cardinal signs mark the seasons of change, initiating new realities.


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.

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?

I feel like it would ruin the small old-town feeling of Santa Cruz. It wouldn’t be the same Surf City kind of vacation town that it is. Antoinette BennettSanta Cruz | Construction Management


Trout Gulch Vineyards

Cinsault 2012—la grande plage diurne The most popular wines on store shelves are those most generally known and available—Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which are all superb for sure.
