What behavior would you like to eliminate from Santa Cruz?

lt_nicoleEI think we should eliminate bike theft because it's really awful that people have their bikes stolen. I just bought a new bike so I've been thinking about this lately.

Hostilities and aggressiveness from and towards homeless people.

Two behaviors. One would be completely taking up the benches so others can’t sit down. Two is hanging out on the corners with a lot of people that don’t do anything. I'm not against whether people are working or not working or anything like that, I'm not protesting that. It's just that I don’t have any place to sit if I want to have a cup of coffee.

Disrespect. Personally I see disrespect a lot with graffiti tagging. I'm a big fan of graffiti art, but the tagging on the windows, businesses, and doors where I have to paint over or pay a thousand dollars to have the film on the glass replaced—to me that’s not OK, and thats not respecting someone’s property that you work hard to maintain and take care of.

I dont want to eliminate any behaviors in Santa Cruz. Let everyone walk their own walk.

I will eliminate all politically correctness, it is ok to have an opinion but when people preach what they think is truth as totally true is very annoying.
just want to have a light nice conversation without going politically berserk be about the food we eat or the latest politician or how to fix other people's life.
the blame game has to go.
stop complaining and worrying, chill out enjoy life, be thankful for everything you have.

The ex-hippie baby boomer slumlords behavior toward Santa Cruz progressing.

How easily it is to forget that they protested and sang songs downtown decades ago and now bilk the this generation with high rent in shabby rental units and oppose all new development to protect their "piece of paradise". Beats gettin a real job I guess.

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.

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
