REAGAN DEAD AT 93

Indy_bonzo.jpgFormer pResident Ronald Reagan dies. A 93-year life of lies and deceipt ended yesterday as Ronald Reagan's heart (?) stopped pumping blood (?) through his body. I shudder thinking of what tributes we'll endur in the coming weeks and am slightly unnerved at the strange, uneasy feeling that grips me when I speculate on the reaction that will come from any criticism of the man.

Rockin' the Boat: MRC Greenwood Sendoff Party/Protest

On February 23 UC Santa Cruz chancellor MRC Greenwood was promoted to Provost - the second highest position next to President. As provost, Greenwood receives an annual pay increase of $110,000, bringing her total salary to $380,000. Higher and higher salaries for UC administrators is a growing trend, while student tuitions also increase. At the same time, UCSC's clerical and custodial employees, already understaffed, are burdened with an expanding workload, as the campus grows.

In light of budget shortfalls, University Labor United, a coalition of campus unions at UCSC have demanded Greenwood turn down the raise. As invited guests and friends of Greenwood attended her farewell gala at the Coconut Grove on, June 3, a coalition of unions students, and community members came out to protest.

Free Radio Santa Cruz reporter Emily Hell was on scene to provide live coverage on Rockin' the Boat.

FCC Visits Free Radio Santa Cruz

At 10:15 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, agents from the Federal Communications Commision attempted to gain entry into the studio of Free Radio Santa Cruz. Skidmark Bob approached the pair to ask if they had received complaints of interference. Both agents said the only problem was the station isn't licensed. As they left, Agent Hartshorn threatened to return with a warrant if FRSC did not shut down.

The all volunteer, collectively-run, community based radio station began broadcasting in the spring of 1995, providing Santa Cruz radio listeners with a diverse array of music, talk, and experimental programming unparalleled by anything on the local dial.

The FCC visit comes just five days after the 35 watt station relocated to a new home and new spot on the dial. After nine years of broadcasting at 96.3 FM, a previously unused frequency, FRSC operators moved to 101.1 FM. The switch comes as a good faith effort to avoid interference with Air 1. Last summer, the Christian rock station was granted a license for a ten watt repeater on 96.3 FM in Salinas, CA.

Thursday's visit to Free Radio Santa Cruz is yet another attempt at silencing the tiny station, despite strong community support. On September 3, 2003, the Santa Cruz City Council voted 7-0 in support of an emergency resolution calling on the FCC to leave the station alone.

WHO IS BOZO TEXINO? at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In (8/12)

This spectacular travel adventure faithfully photographed in realistic black and white film at considerable risk from speeding freight trains and in secret hobo jungles in the dogged pursuit of the impossibly convoluted story of the heretofore untold history of the century-old folkloric practice of hobo and railworker graffiti and the absurd quest for the true identity of railroading's greatest artist will likely amuse and confound you

Chicken Run at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In (8/5)

A spunky and hilarious story about the yearning for freedom in the heart of a very determined hen on a farm in the English country-side told in claymation splendor. Also a subtle polemic on the evils of burrito pollo. Wonderfully improbable, anachronistic and quixotic.
