Well, of course. They've succeeded in sweeping it from the beaches into the neighborhoods whereRead More it's much easier to hide and the number of people coming here to participate continues to grow as it will. Great job. Where I live on Broadway the close nearby and overhead shots were several times what I've ever heard before. Nothing in the past was remotely comparable and all my amazed neighbors agree. I saw and heard one land on my roof and had to take the hose to it prophylactically. The Fun Rangers need to leave it alone and leave it on the beaches or there will inevitably be the great Santa Cruz county fire.

At the last meeting of the Watsonville City Council, the fire chief said there is a fine of up toRead More $1,000.00 if you are caught with illegal fireworks. Especially with the city's fiscal crisis, there would have been a lot of money to be made out there if the violators were more aggressively located and cited.

The fireworks continue at the Mission Gardens Apartments — now the entire neighborhood isRead More calling 911 about it. Teenage gangsters are setting off fireworks in the Mission Gardens park and parking lot to terrorize residents here. They are tagging this apartment complex as their territory. They are angry because a major gangster here was recently arrested for felonious aggravated assault — they are angry because the Santa Cruz Police Department and the federal government are trying to dislodge them from Mission Gardens, which they have coveted since Carl Reimer's murder here three years ago last April.

A shout out to Mr. Craig Jenni (second gentleman from the right, blue suit). Always at the ready forRead More the Red Cross (serves a serious strawberry shortcake too ;) Congrats and thank you to all the volunteers.

Mixed feelings here. I worked incredibly hard over a number of years to afford to buy what was atRead More the time one of the county's cheapest homes (not "affordable housing" though). And then other folks just get to walk up and get a handout. This is an expensive area. Living on the central coast is a luxury, not a right. I mean what's next, you gonna build section 8 homes in Pebble Beach?
Maria Grusauskas August 21, 2012 at 07:46 pm
Are you saying only the wealthy should be able to live on the central coast?
Watzon McWats August 22, 2012 at 02:58 am
No, you don't have to be "wealthy" to live on the central coast. I work a fairly averageRead More income job and am able to afford it. This is not a cheap area to live in though. If you can't afford it, move to some place more affordable like the central valley or out of state. It shouldn't be up to everyone else to subsidize your coastal lifestyle - that is a luxury, like driving a brand new car or owning a large TV (some of us give up TV's and cars just to live here rather than beg for help). Now if you can't even afford reasonable accommodation in a more affordable city, then perhaps help is needed.

Over 20 years ago, when first learning at a Rotary Club meeting that CASA was being established inRead More SC County, I made the decision to make it my all-time favorite organization to support. I can't say it any better than Cathy says in this article.

Thank You Santa Cruz County Red Cross

It's disturbing, and I don't agree with the so-called experts saying to leave them alone, that it isRead More the culling of the flock. These pelicans are an iconic part of our area and the eco-systems. Whatever is causing this must be found and eliminated so that the aerial flights of pelicans, soaring overhead like a squadron in perfect synch will continue to fill our skies.

Viki Lester June 16, 2012 at 05:56 pm
I totally agree! They're very nice and very quick to respond. Nice to feel comfortable and safeRead More knowing they're always there to help. They are also very nice, smiling, take the time to talk a little and keep acquainted with the people in Scotts Valley.

A philanthropist is someone who wants to increase the well-being of humankind. George Ow lovesRead More humanity and his on-going commitment in supporting youth in their endeavor for higher education has been a priority for George. George came from our community and he gives back to the community. In Spanish I want to say, mil gracias, George.
Rebecca Tait June 8, 2012 at 12:42 pm
What a kind, generous thing to do. Thank you George Ow.
