What does the future of Burning Man look like to you?

lt sashaThe future of Burning Man as it is is quite bleak, so I'd say the future goes towards thinking about pooling resources together and creating a sustainable piece of land, nurture it towards festival grounds, of and for the community, that can actually be a place that can be sustainable with resources that can grow. It's not just throwing resources into a burning desert situation.

Bright and fiery, flaming into the night. I'm worried a little bit about the organization, of course, but I've worried about that every year for 12 years, and it’s always been fine.

I think Burning Man will one day outgrow itself in some way. The thing that it stirred in the world is probably not going go away. It's an ever-evolving, ever-growing unique animal so there really is no predicting, but what I think will happen is that it will continue to evolve, but at some point it will end. They won’t be able to continue.

I think it looks positive. Things change but change is good. This year may have a larger amount of new people, hopefully that’s not going to change the dynamics too much. I'm still optimistic that people are going to go there with the right attitude.

lt scottMy honest truth is I'm baffled and concerned. Unless they can raise the number of people that the BLM lets them put on the land, it's really going to be a problem. It's that simple. I've got friends who are stressed about it. I don’t have my ticket yet, my girlfriend does. I know I'll be there!

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.

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?

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. But when you come across a more unusual varietal, like Trout Gulch Vineyards’ Cinsault ($18), it opens up a whole new world.
