What New Year’s resolution would you like to force upon others?

lt alanThink about others more and try to do what’s good for mankind. In these times it just seems that people are kind of greedy and out for themselves. We’re all in this together.

If I was going to force anything upon anyone it would be peace. Stop the war, stop the fighting, get along and learn that we are all one people, one planet. We have to learn to love each other. We have to help each other.

lt bert
I'd like people to be more respectful of each other, less aggressive, kinder, more willing to compromise.

lt krista
Smile more. I want to force people to smile more. Put their shoulders down and open their heart.

I would force only one thing - every member of Congress and Administration must stop corruption.

A very disturbing question. Isn't it just like liberals to think of what they would want to "force" on others? Isn't forcing people to think a certain way, behave in a way WE like, or compromise our core beliefs in a way we want them to live the opposite of freedom? Isn't trying to force people to love each other the opposite of love?

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
