What do you know about Monsanto?

lt blytheI don’t know as much as I would like to know about Monsanto. But what I do know is that they have an agenda to control the seed supply of the whole world and they seem to want to make sure that everyone eats their seeds. Even though 50 countries have gotten rid of GMO food we are still  not even able to know what’s in our food. At the very least I know that they are trying to keep us from knowing what is in our food, because they have a big stake in it.

I just think they’re one of those companies making that bad food and that they're putting stuff in our food that we don’t need. They’re sure not organic.

lt brian

Knowledge should be free. Patenting genetics is absurd. Terminator seeds and patented life forms come to mind. Global control over the world's food supply. How evil is that? On the other hand, they did sponsor that cool Disneyland ride in the 1960s called Adventure Thru Inner Space.

lt gregory

I have very strong feelings. I know about the company, I know what they do, I've read about them a lot, and I do feel that the owner is, I would not say this about many people, evil. His concept about life, from my point of view, is awful. And it's not just about control, it's control toward control of death. And I deeply do not like his company. We don’t have control over corporations. So therefore we can’t control them. But I deeply feel of all companies, they must be the worst of all.

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
