Brief: Full Cycle

Full Cycle

Tawn Kennedy of Greenways to School is introducing a new program that lets Watsonville kids earn bikes by helping out their community. Students at an eight-week summer Bike Tech class at Pajaro Valley High School can work for a new set of wheels by volunteering— helping at school gardens, or with events, for example.

“I just wanted to provide a way for youth to get bikes, and also give them a way to start to see themselves as role models,” says Kennedy.

Kennedy says cycling has grown more popular among kids in Watsonville. Things are moving in terms of policy too, with more than $1 million in funding through the RTC to build part of the Santa Cruz Rail Trail in Watsonville. The stretch is about three quarters of a mile, and will connect Lee Road to the Wetland Trail System.

For information on how to donate a bike, visit greenways2school.org.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
