Anti-War Banners Over Highway 17

In a two-pronged attack, anti-war demonstrators hung banners from both Mt. Hermon Rd and Scotts Valley Drive overpasses in the town of Scotts Valley for northbound 17 commuters in the early morning of Tuesday Dec 4th around 7:30a. The combined message was "Are you buying this war?" and then a mile later.. "At what cost?", with a face or skull with its mouth taped shut, and an American flag hung right next to it. At 8am, one CalTrans truck was seen parked near the 1st sign. By 9p later that night, the two signs asking questions had been removed by someone, while the American flag was left in place. Who removed the question banners, on what grounds, and why they left the 3rd banner (the American flag) could not be determined. Did CalTrans do it, and if so why are they enforcing whatever law only against the politically INcorrect banners when their job is supposed to be road and highway maintenance, not political censorship?

Community Support to Rescue Camp Paradise "Awesome"

No government agency has involved itself. Two private property owners have donated two garages for storage, and Dr. Paul Lee helped to fund some motel rooms for some of the displaced campers. The Quakers helped greatly by bringing trucks down, and transporting people to the motels. Larry Templeton called the Red Cross directly and asked for help. "They would not help us. Even if we was wiped out, all they would do is refer us to the Homeless Resource Center. Continuum of Care member, Jim Moran also called FEMA and The Red Cross. No one would help the camp.

Protesting the Cop-Killing of Happy John Dine

Approximately 6 people gathered for a protest and candlelight vigil at the corner of Soquel and Front St in Santa Cruz, Monday night from 6 - 7p, at the downtown bus stop where resident "Happy" John Dine was shot to death under suspicious circumstances by SCPD 4 years ago that day. Local activists Becky Johnson and Robert Norse were in attendance, among others. Police presence was minimal and not problematic. Protesters maintain the police planted evidence after the killing to justify a self-defense plea. The killers were later exonerated of any wrong-doing.

Jailing of The Reverend raises 1st amendment issues

Jailing The Reverend, a homeless, black tarot card reader raises serious issues of racial, social, and economic cleansing on Pacific Ave. by the use of drug war tactics. And this in a City which is known as sympathetic to medical marijuana users. The Sentinel spins us a story in which police state tactics are simply "mental health issues" faced by "law enforcment." Paschal facing up to 90 days in our County jail, $12,000 - $18,000 in transporting costs, and up to eight months in a New Hampshire prison are all paid for with shrinking public funds.
