A cup of water costs how much in Aptos, CA? At Sno-White?

paper cup costs 7 cents

How much does a cup of  water cost in Aptos, CA?   About  75 cents for the cup.

Sno-White Drive In  now   charges about $.75 for a paper cup that costs .07 cents.   Sno-White  charges about 10 times what the cup costs. This is a new charge.

Someone recently bought a breakfast sandwich  ($3.50) and also  asked for a half cup of  water.

The customer gave Sno-White   a $5.oo bill and was given back a quarter, a nickel and a few pennies.  As  the breakfast sandwich costs $3.50 the additional charge for the paper cup was about $.75.

Asked ‘why charge for water?’ the reply  from the cook/ owner  was ‘I charge for the cup’.

So, what do paper cups cost?  About 7 cents.

You can buy 1,000  hot/cold paper cups (12 oz) on Amazon for $69.85 with no charge for shipping.  

Sno-White Drive In in Aptos, CA  has good  ‘burgers.  It’s located near  the entrance to  Seacliff State Beach.   

Charging 10 times the cost for a paper cup is not good public relations.  When  a customer wants a cup of water — let them have it for free.  That’s good PR.  

The City of Watsonville  just recently  now requires all  restaurants which provide paper cups to charge 10 cents.   They do so based on the state wide law regarding paper bags.

Per The Santa Cruz Sentinel 7/12/2019 Santa Cruz County eyes sweeping plastic prohibitions.  Also under consideration is a fee for disposable cups — similiar to the statewide 10 cent fee for grocery bags — and a requirement that all businesses provide recycling bins for their customers.

Aptos Psychologist:  Pe adage,  ‘Waste not, want not.’

Best to keep handy  a re-usable bag for groceries  and a re-usable cup for water.

Sno-White Drive In has good, reasonably  priced  ‘burgers.  Keep a water bottle in your car.

Sanctuary Cities Santa Cruz & Watsonville: Why not follow federal laws which permit ICE to arrest at Local Jails rather than go find them at home, work & in community?

   Sanctuary Cities Santa Cruz & Watsonville:  Why not follow federal laws on the books which permit federal authorities aka  ICE to arrest “bad dudes” in local jails rather than go find them in their homes, work place and community?  Santa Cruz has some of the highest rates of crime in California.

Let’s do what we can to reduce crime in Santa Cruz and Watsonville, California. Below is a link to a FOX news report on ICE activities.

National Statistics on Recidivism — who gets arrested again and again

Bureau of Justice Statistics studies have found high rates of recidivism among released prisoners. One study tracked 404,638 prisoners in 30 states after their release from prison in 2005.[1] The researchers found that:

  • Within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
  • Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
  • Of those prisoners who were rearrested, more than half (56.7 percent) were arrested by the end of the first year.

  • Property offenders were the most likely to be rearrested, with 82.1 percent of released property offenders arrested for a new crime compared with 76.9 percent of drug offenders, 73.6 percent of public order offenders and 71.3 percent of violent offenders.

It’s time that local Santa Cruz county  politicians set policies that save fragile resources.

Per the FOX interview (see above link), the top ICE official says that ICE can process 10 inmates in  in one 8 hour  shift.  Vastly more time and resources are required for ICE  to find the”bad dudes” who were released back on the streets.

Connect with data bases so it’s easier to capture the truly “bad dudes” committing horrific crimes across the USA.

Currently ICE has access to local law enforcement databases, organized by states, such as Arizona and Texas, and metropolitan regions, such as the greater Seattle, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. areas. In Arizona, AZLink, the database that experienced the most DHS searches during this period, pools together information from numerous law enforcement agencies across the state.

The person-power required  for ICE  find the “bad dudes” released back into the community  is huge.

ICE targets individuals known to be at certain places in Santa Cruz and Watsonville, CA.    By putting the work on ICE  go find them in the community  generates fears concerning  who else will be picked up.

Releasing “bad dudes” back on the streets puts Santa Cruz county at risk of more crime.

The known rate for re-offending is over  high. Over 50% will be arrested again within one year.  So — by releasing the “bad guys” back on the streets local Santa Cruz and Watsonville Sanctuary City policies are directly responsible for more crime in Santa Cruz, Watsonville and elsewhere in the county.

Aptos Psychologist: 

Let’s hold our local Santa Cruz and Watsonville CA  politicians accountable.  Cooperate with ICE so that  the”bad dudes” — the really “bad dudes” — are put on ice and if appropriate deported. Let’s stop the revolving doors  at our local Santa Cruz and Watsonville  jails wherein those arrested are quickly put back on the streets.  What say you?

I.C.E. is nice? Santa Cruz & Watsonville CA say ‘NO” as they are Sanctuary Cities…

 

I.C.E. is nice?  Sanctuary Cities oppose  I.C.E &   include Watsonville, CA and Sana Cruz, CA

I.C.E. is nice?   Sanctuary Cities include Santa Cruz, CA and Watsonville, CA say ‘No” ….

In an March 15, 2017 article written by Joseph Geha for the East Bay Times, the chairman of the City of Fremont California’s Human Relations Commission, is quoted as saying: “There are strength in numbers. The more communities, the more cities that sign on to sanctuary city status, the more difficult it will be for the federal government government to do anything about it.”  [The Fremont city council passed its sanctuary resolution that day.]

     A ‘sanctuary flash mob’ strategy does appear to be the progressive Democrats’ plan to overwhelm President Trump’s efforts to rein in sanctuary jurisdictions by  threatening cuts in  federal funding.

     Since President Trump released his Executive Order, the trend has been a sharp increase in the number of sanctuary resolutions being passed across the country.  That trend slowed after US Attorney General Jeff Sessions began to also publicly warn that sanctuary jurisdictions’ might lose federal funds.

Some sanctuary cities then began to double down on their policies and file lawsuits claiming that the federal government can’t cut some or all the threatened funding.

     Ultimately, the sanctuary battle will continue in the federal court system and likely be decided by one or more separate U.S. Supreme Court decisions.

          Does your town, city, county, or state have a written or unwritten sanctuary policy?  First, read the disclaimer and then view The Original List of Sanctuary Cities, USA, below.
