Ways to Help Bryan Stow

blog_bryan-stowSanta Cruz rallies to support injured Giants fan and local
Things got out of control when two Los Angeles Dodgers fans attacked a Giants fan and Santa Cruz resident, Bryan Stow, in the parking lot of the Dodgers Stadium after the season opener on March 31. Stow, a paramedic and father of two, is currently in a medically induced coma at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center due to suffering many kicks to the head. Multiple fundraising and donation efforts have been made by local Santa Cruz businesses in his honor. Upcoming fundraisers will be held at:
*El Palomar Restaurant on April 11 from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. There will be a raffle, silent auction, and food and drink specials. 1344 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz, 425-7575,

*Malone’s Grill on April 13 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.. The restaurant will donate 30 percent of sales along with funds raised from a raffle and silent auction. 4402 Scotts Valley Drive, Scotts Valley, 438-2244,
*Stagnaro Bros. Seafood on April 14 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.. Stagnaro’s will donate 20 percent of all proceeds to the Bryan Stow Fund. Municipal Wharf, Santa Cruz, 423-1188,

Monetary donations can also be made to the Bryan Stow Fund by mail or online. Money garnered will assist Stow’s family and go toward medical bills. Stow and his family remain in the hearts of all Santa Cruzans with hopes that he will recover soon.

Checks should be made payable to the Bryan Stow Fund and donations by mail can be sent to:

Bryan Stow Fund

This ain’t no Burning Man—the MAH’s GLOW festival flames on


Mercury Direct in Libra, Columbus Day, Libra New Moon

Mercury completes its retrograde Friday, poised stationary direct Friday evening at zero degrees Libra. Mercury begins its journey through Libra once again, completing its retrograde shadow Oct. 12. Things should be a bit less complicated by then. Daily life works better, plans move forward, large purchases can be made, and communication eases. Everything on hold during the retrograde is slowly released. Since we eliminated all thoughts and ideas no longer needed (the purpose of Mercury’s retrograde) during the retrograde, we can now gather new information—until the next retrograde occurs on Jan. 5, 2016 (1.3 degrees Aquarius), retrograding back to 15 degrees Capricorn on Jan. 25. It’s good to know beforehand when Mercury will retrograde next—Jan. 5, the day before Epiphany. On Monday is Columbus Day, when the sailor from Genoa arrived in the new lands (Americas), Oct. 12, 1492. This discovery by Columbus was the first encounter of Europeans with Native Americans. Other names for this day are “Discovery Day, Day of the Americas, Cultural Diversity Day, Indigenous People’s Day, and Dia de la Raza.” Italian communities especially celebrate this day. Oct. 12 is also Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Monday is also the (19 degrees) Libra new moon festival. Libra’s keynote while building the personality is, “Let choice be made.” Libra is the sign of making life choices. Often under great tension of opposing forces seeking harmony and balance. There is a battle between our lower (personality) and higher selves (soul). We are tested and called to cultivate right judgment and love. When we align with the will-to-good, right choice, then right judgment and love/wisdom come forth. Our tasks in Libra.
