James Ryan, the university’s president, posted a statement on Facebook explaining that there were concerns about firing weapons on school property in light of recent school shootings.
He said there were two specific reasons.
“First, to minimize disruptions to classes, given that this event is located at the juncture of four primary academic buildings and is held at a time that classes are in session; and second, recognizing concerns related to firing weapons on the Grounds in light of gun violence that has happened across our nation, especially on school and university campuses,” the president wrote.

Annrae Angel says why she — not Ari Symons — should get your vote for Santa Cruz County Superior Court Judge in 2020 elections. Egregious conduct by judge Symons running a red light is the issue, says Angel.
Read “the facts” of the Symons case as gathered by the CA state government Commission on Judicial Performance. The Commission meets behind closed doors and allows no questioning of “the facts” before reaching their “conclusions”. Closed door proceedings without input raise multiple red flags for me.
Ari Symons said that she ran the red light. Think of the Simon game many people have played.
Ari Symons clicked the Red and played the game straight. ‘I did it!’ she told people immediately. Symons told co-workers the truth. She ran the red.
When someone says repeatedly that they did it, that they ran the red light and that the moving vehicle violation ticket is their –how can that be a viewed by the watch dog government entity as a ‘cover up’ or considered ‘egregious behavior’?
Rather, overall this appears to be the Democrats in Sacramento targeting an individual. Perhaps it would be better if CA was not run by the Democrats?
Per the “facts” as stated by the Commission, Ari Symons told co-workers that she ran a red light that morning. Some time later Symons wrote letters saying she was the one who ran the red light. Later, things got muddled between spouse Michael and wife Ari. Not every spouse does what the other spouse wants, correct? So says Symons concerning overall handling of the red ticket. Ari Symons made mistakes how the matter was handled. Symons has admitted her mistakes.
Aptos Psychologist: These facts and the others listed by the Commission for Judicial Performance don’t add up to “egregious conduct” by Ari Symons.
And, the CA state government should not get away with wrongful behavior. Come on, government Commission for Judicial Performance Do better! Or disband, re-group, and re-fresh your standards. Don’t target individuals. Play the game straight.
This entity. the Commission on Judicial Performance, meets in San Francisco Dec. 4-5, 2019 and Jan 29-30, 2020. Phone: 415 557-1200 FAX 415 557-1266 Three members of the Commission — Nishimura, Capozzi and Torres — can be replaced immediately as they have exceeded the number of years they can serve.
Tell our state government to add new members to the Commission on Judicial Performance who will act honestly and with integrity. Make sense?
Section 1252(c) of the “Aliens and Nationality” laws is titled: “Authorizing State and local law enforcement officials to arrest and detain certain illegal aliens.” The section authorizes state and local law enforcement officials “to arrest and detain an individual who— (1) is an alien illegally present in the United States; and (2) has previously been convicted of a felony in the United States and deported or left the United States after such conviction.”
But in OZ:The city of New York’s Commission on Human Rights has decided that illegal aliens need more protection from the law than American citizens. So they passed an ordinance that not only makes it illegal to threaten to call immigration authorities on a suspected illegal, but you could be fined $250,000 just for saying “illegal alien.”
This is not The Onion.
You can call an American anything you want — any vile, vulgar, obscenity in the book — and not be punished for it. This ordinance would seem to grant extraordinary protections to those in the United States illegally.
What’s the fall out from years and years of Democrat Party policies on Santa Cruz and Watsonville, CA?
Some current 2019 impressions:
Kids kill other kids in Watsonville, CA. Take a look at crime statistics. Because Watsonville gang members routinely target younger kids, parents keep children inside their homes. Kids are not allowed to ‘hang out’ in their front yards in Watsonville, CA. So parents tell me.
North County Santa Cruz CA frequently ignores South County Watsonville CA issues. Watsonville and Santa Cruz are two different worlds joined by Highway 1.
Psychotic adults hang out and talk in loud voices to themselves at the McDonalds Restaurant on Ocean Street in Santa Cruz. The Watsonvile McDonalds are much more family centered and much cleaner.
Two ‘more than typical’ Progressives city officials face probable recall by 8000+ Santa Cruz City voters. The recall effort states that these two public officials ignored numerous public safety issues (needles, human feces and violence) posed by the Ross St encampment. And other issues. Click the recall effort link for more information.
‘Free’ Santa Cruz beaches are far dirtier than the CA County managed beaches which you pay to enter.
Idle adults hang out in droves near the Santa Cruz COSCO, close to the Ribele Family Shelter Building located at Highway 1 and River St. It does not ‘feel safe’ to drive near by.
Oh, my …… Oh my ….
There’s more control by city government of ‘the little things’ — such as can a business have a sign or an awning? — than the ‘big picture’ i.e, how can we work with the community to reduce violent crime and improve public safety?
Opps!!! Perhaps it’s time for a change from the Democrats and their policies?
“For Glover, the substantiated complaint, as described by hired consultant Joe Rose, was that Glover violated the city’s Respectful Workplace Conduct Policy when addressing Meyers Feb. 1 about shared conference room scheduling. According to Rose’s report, the timing of Glover’s “needlessly and unjustifiably antagonistic” response to Meyers’ overstaying her allotted time in a city conference room was “humiliating and embarrassing” to Meyers because it occurred in the presence of “important community partners.”
Glover responded in his Facebook post to the public group SCCCP – Santa Cruz and Central Coast Politics, saying, “the substantiated complaint was “due to a communication issue combined with the mishandling of the conflict by the other party involved as they did not come to speak to me first before filing a complaint.”
To be fair, let’s look at the report filed by consultant Joe Rose. Let the public read the report for themselves.
So who’s who in the Santa Cruz Sentinel article? The paper wrongly printed Santa Cruz Councilman Glover with Krohn’s face and Councilman Krohn with Glover’s face.
Glover is Afro-American, not Caucasian as portrayed in the Santa Cruz Sentinel. . Opps! Pictures are worth a thousand words.
So here’s an example of “wrong news” by our local paper.
Time to hold Amazon responsible for dangerous products, e.g., Chinese made motorcycle helmets which crack on impact and magnetic toys with no labels which children swallow? Eee-gads.
True story published in the Wall Street Journal: A mom bought a motorcycle helmet on Amazon for her son who died when he collided with a car. This motorcycle helmet was labeled safe according to USA federal standards. Not safe, the helmet was made in China and re-sold on Amazon by a tiny outfit in California When tested, these Chinese made motorcycle helmets crack on impact. There’s about 4,000+ of these helmets still in circulation.
Former Amazon employee Rachael Johnson Greer managed Amazon’s safety systems until 2015. For a number of years the safety section at Amazon consisted of three persons. Greer now advises third-party Amazon sellers.
Rachael Greer estimates that in 2017 roughly 80% of Amazon’s third-party sellers did not comply with federal, state or industry safety labeling and the vast majority of issues were not having proper warnings and labels.
For the complete story, check out the Wall Street Journal article week of 8/25/2019. Providing useful information concerning safety gives consumers choice and freedom.
OK for Israel to keep out persons such as Omar and Tlaib who may seek harm to Israel? Who vocally support the boycott of Israel? So thinks Israel.
Front runner Democrat Joe Biden posted a tweet meant to criticize the Israeli government’s decision not to admit two anti-Semitic U.S. congresswomen, Omar and Tlaib.
Biden said he is a supporter of Israel but no one should be denied entry into a democratic state over “ideas”. “No democracy should deny entry to visitors based on the content of their ideas”, he said.
Maurice Hill, the criminal who wounded six police officers in a shootout in Philadelphia and was arrested after a seven-hour standoff, attended a radical mosque.
The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”
Clarion Intelligence Network has been aware through its sources that the area where the shootings took place is known for trafficking in guns, drugs and counterfeit items. This criminal market has a strong Islamist element that includes extremist gangs.
Hill’s older sister said he “occasionally attended” an unnamed mosque, confirming initial reports from our sources that Hill is a Muslim. The sources do not yet have first-hand evidence of the shooter being personally involved in Islamist extremism.
Clarion Intel’s sources report that Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar is a Salafi mosque which follows the theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars.
Hill has been arrested a dozen times for various crimes including evading the police, drugs, guns and aggravated assault (which was a downgrade from attempted murder). He served two years on drug-related charges, was paroled in 2006 and then had to serve another year for shooting someone and was released in 2013.
