Boxing champion Carina Moreno recognized in photo essay by W. Scott Berry

news_corina1Boxing champion Carina Moreno recognized in photo essay by W. Scott BerryLocal photographer Scott Berry debuted his photo essay profiling boxing champion Carina Moreno on Saturday July 18 at the Museum of Art and History (MAH) in Santa Cruz.  Talking to a full house, the champion boxer and her trainer, Rick Noble, shared many insights. The 105-pound Moreno, who appears to be a slight figure—until she speaks—revealed how she works out three times daily when training for a fight and noted how hard it is for her not to eat at her parents restaurant, Tacos Moreno, while training. Best news? The slugger told the crowd they can accomplish anything if you stay focused and work hard.

But she didn’t stop there. Having boxed all around the world Moreno had plenty of other stories. One of them revolved around a Puerto Rican boxer who mysteriously refused to disrobe during a weigh-in. During the fight Moreno threw a low blow only to discover a steel cup covering the boxer’s manliness.  Moreno still won the match.  

Growing up with three brothers exposed Moreno to karate, kickboxing and boxing. The boxing stuck. Moreno turned pro in July of 2003. She hopes to one day be a coach and help other girls in the sport.

Moreno also had a request. She asked me to give a message to Good Times Editor Greg Archer: She’s ready for a rematch any time he is willing to climb back in the ring with her. Greg?

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.
