text Four Days…the Slaying of Krista Deluca in the Santa Cruz County Jail by Dr. Bruce Loisel
A description and analysis of the incarceration and pain she endured in the four days and nights she was held captive by the officials in charge of the Santa Cruz County jail. She was deprived of the medication that, without question, would have ended her agony and saved her life. The limitlessness of her four sleepless days and nights of torture and mayhem, that culminated in her choking on her own vomit and dying, is not easy to imagine.

text RV Nighttime Parking, "Littering", Street Vendors Again on Chopping Block Today at Council by Robert Norse
The Niroyan-led Nimbies are back again at City Hall demanding the City ban RV's at night city-wide. To avoid a veto from the Coastal Commission, city staff homeless-cleansers have dickered with Coastal Commission staff for half a year. They are introducing a midnight-5 PM resolution (though allowing for a broader parking ban in the law) (Item #25). Additional items of interest involve tripled fines for "littering" city-wide from July 2 through July 6 and $200+ fines for violating the "Vani...

“This company has a disturbing history of dangerous oil spills, yet federal pipeline regulators seem to have done almost nothing to protect our state,” said Kristen Monsell, an attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity. “The new spill is another grim example of why we have to get pipelines and oil drilling out of California’s vulnerable coastal environment. We’ve got to stop thinking about these oil spills as accidents and start seeing them for what they are: completely predi...

Local musician, activist, and volunteer for the SF Mime Troupe, Karen Kaplan, informs us that this year, the SF Mime Troupe will be performing at Porter College's outdoor quad at UCSC, but not at San Lorenzo Park in Santa Cruz, as has been the tradition for so many years. Apparently the Mime Troupe performance was nixed by the City of Santa Cruz's Planning Department this year.
