Should we keep Santa Cruz weird, or keep Santa Cruz safe and clean? Or can we do both?

lt kellyI think Santa Cruz will always be weird because of the type of people that it draws. But we could definitely focus on staying safer and always being aware of keeping our environment clean, happy and healthy.

We need to do both. The beauty here is in the variety of the people and that doesn’t have to be dirty or unsafe at all. It can be wonderful and open and loving and beautiful.

Weird, safe and clean; support the police, make sure that the homeless folks have a place to go so that they're not just hanging out with the rest of us. And that’s how you keep it safe and weird. Support the buskers, too.

With a little effort we can do both, but it's going to take a lot of work and a lot of resources. And right now with the way the economy is. I think the resources are a little short. I'd rather have it safe and clean.

I think we need to keep it weird, like in the old days—the good old days.

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.
