LOCAL Commentary :: Government & Elections : Poverty & Urban Development : Transportation

Measure J is a blessing for bus riders. Vote yes!

Metro buses are the main form of "alternative transportation" in Santa Cruz County, despite all the rhetoric about bikes, trains and trails. I have a challenge for people who oppose Measure J but claim to support alternative transportation. Ride the bus from Watsonville to Santa Cruz every day for a week. You'll learn why many Metro bus riders are voting Yes on J. Though the No on J campaign materials don't say so, Measure J will add carpool lanes, giving buses priority on Highway 1. (The carpool lanes are not some extra, optional project; they are the priority project in the measure.) Scheduled travel time from Watsonville to Santa Cruz will drop from an hour and 15 minutes to just 30 minutes, and Metro will be able to run more trips with the same number of buses and drivers. With its focus on carpool lanes, Measure J is good for those of us who depend on the bus.

Why I'm not voting for Emily Reilly

Emily Reilly was the top vote-getter in 2000. Her pleasant demeanor and her self-deprecating comments endear her to some. But what is her record? What kind of leadership has she really shown? HUFF activists have examined her record and the results are not very encouraging.

Free Radio Santa Cruz Is Reviewing All Options

At present, the Free Radio Santa Cruz collective is reviewing all options to move forward with our news, music, and artistic programming. We are streaming on the web and encourage you to listen in. We are actively asking for help from our community of friends and supporters. We are only able to remain on the air because of the commitment by our collective members and the help of our community. If you are a listener of Free Radio Santa Cruz, please help us maintain the public airwaves by making a donation. At this time money and free legal help is needed to secure our future so that we may continue to meet the diverse needs of our community.

FRSC is part of a growing micro-radio movement, supporting the work of other independent media and other pirate and noncommercial web and broadcast stations. Our city councilmembers passed a resolution in support of our radio as a vital community resource and Congress member Sam Farr has written a letter to the FCC/congress opposing their misuse of funds and energy. Letters in support of us to the FCC, and local media outlets are much appreciated.

News :: Peace & War

The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer

EDITORS' NOTE: Amidst widespread revulsion over George Bush and everything he stands for, millions are increasingly desperate, frustrated, and angry as they realize the election of 2004 offers them no possibility to vote against the war in Iraq, the Patriot Act and other horrors of the Bush agenda. And this realization that on crucial questions confronting the people of the U.S. and the entire world John Kerry does not offer any serious challenge to Bush highlights the reality that THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE WILL NOT BE EXERCISED IN THIS ELECTION.
