In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying audio files of the news and commentary.

Due to time constraints there will be no text news synopsis this morning...

But there IS Santa Cruz California Local News...

So how is it in YOUR neck of the woods?
January's jobless rate in Santa Cruz County at 15 percent, highest ever

SANTA CRUZ -- The Santa Cruz County jobless rate climbed in January to 15 percent, which appears to be a new record, from 13.3 percent in December.

The local unemployment rate, released by the state Wednesday, topped the national rate of 10.6 percent, the state rate of 13.2 percent and the Santa Clara County rate of 12.1 percent.

Locally, construction and retail each dropped 600 jobs, and farm jobs shrank 2,200.

In addition, the state's report of 600 local government jobs added in December proved to be in error.

Instead, local government, which includes city and county government, public schools, the county Office of Education and Cabrillo College, lost 100 jobs in December and 200 more in January.

Usually Jorge Villalobos, analyst with the state Employment Development Department, can compare current data to the 19-year average but not this time. That information was not accessible because of the annual benchmarking process for labor statistics, he said.

He did say January's jobless rate is higher than it was in 1993, when it reached 14.6 percent. Because of the benchmarking process, he was unable to review data from 2005 to 2008.

Sentinel files, however, show the jobless rate did not exceed 9 percent in January for any of those years. [In Full]

In other Santa Cruz related news... Lost Boys' actor found dead: "Corey Haim, the young star of the 1987 Santa Cruz-based cult hit "The Lost Boys," died Wednesday at the age of 38."

If you knew the people who modeled their lifestyles growing up in Santa Cruz around the myth of the "Lost Boys" movie and the "Vampires", you'd understand how apropos Haim's death is. Thirty eight, substance abuser, and living at home with his mother.

Unknown DrummerOther ways to go... Yesterday, at the Santa Cruz Farmers Market Drum Circle, a rather middle class, hip appearing gentleman, who had been attending the circle for the last few weeks, may have played his last set. The unnamed man played long and hard then collapsed in an apparent coronary failure. CPR was administered and the paramedics showed up rapidly, with no access issues to the site in spite of the city claimed potential for "interference with emergency services" that was used as a disinformational myth just a year or so ago in their FAILED attempt to chase away the 20 year long impromptu musical event.

They also claimed that occurrences like this:
Tree Storage
...were 'damaging' the trees near the circle.

There is no word so far on the condition of the gentleman pictured above left, but one way or another, we'll be seeing you soon at the circle friend.
