Adios to Summer, it’s officially Fall and we’ve got the latest Weekly Dump falling in your lap a little late this week. We had another drowning up near Davenport this week, the 3rd in the past 2 weeks. We had a drive by gang shooting near the Boardwalk, Saturday night’s alright for fighting, we had a couple local surfers rescue a woman and her two kids after she possibly tried to murder them by driving into the bay, we had a stalker arrested with an assault rifle and a sawed off shotgun, making the Baby Jesus cry, podcasting, the show that never ends, and we Zoom in on the latest Santa Cruz city council meeting.
Time for another slice of vibrant honesty in the latest Weekly Dump! This week, we brought out the Bearcat to help the feds, we had two drownings near Davenport, weird socks, bush league batterers, where’s the grifter union, Watsonville gangbangers plead guilty to murders, smashing pumpkins, the collateral damage of county probation, less than penny bail, Iron Man invades Santa Cruz, Zooming in on the Santa Cruz city council, downsizing the county jails, and the Weekly Seen.
Time for this week’s fashionably late Weekly Dump! This week, we had at least 5 inmates overdose at the county jail on Friday afternoon, welcome to paradise, drunk and out of control in downtown, green grass and high tides forever, drunk raging at Jack in the Box, three penny opera, running down a dream, less than penny bail, more less than penny bail, skating away on the thin ice of a new day, turn the cheek, and we had a water rescue off It’s Beach.
Time for the latest and probably not the greatest Weekly Dump! This week, we had a couple little gang bangers stab another student to death at Aptos High School, three suspected gang members were arrested after a drive by shooting on Blaine Street, a Watsonville man confessed to murder, we had a girl in middle school pull a knife on another student in Watsonville, 5 Guys and a knife, no charges filed against deputies in shooting, penny bail, just asking to be pulled over, going west over the cliff, something’s coming, pleasing the pig, where’s Bob Noise, district elections are coming, and the Weekly Seen is back channelling some RHCP.
Time for the latest Weekly Dump! This week, we had a murder/suicide in Capitola, Nails Plus the bum in the attic, a burglary on Beach Street, a carjacker gets arrested on Ocean Street, the Homeless Drug Garden Projects, brawling on Twin lakes beach, huge bond for Cabrillo hate crime battery, stalker arrested with loaded guns, stealing laughing gas, Zooming in on the Santa Cruz city council, pouring one out for Martin Bernal, and DUI checkpoints are back!
Only a day late this week! But it’s because we’ve got a huge dump to deliver. This week, we had a bank robbery downtown, an armed robbery at a local hotel, cars crashing into buildings, violent sex offenders in Bonny Doon, repercussions to idiot compassion, the weekly DOA in the park, a stabbing on Felker, naked wrestling with SCPD, willful ignorance and tone deaf moments from the mayor, back on the chain gang, lots of penny bailers, a couple of local fires, bail is irrelevant, the Human Dingleberry gets arrested, tow and go, and break out your masks again.
Late last week and early this week. Time for the Weekly Dump!

We’re also talking dire straits, lumberjacks, suspected rapists causing mayhem, falling into the Gap, local murder suspect arrested in Idaho, crash into me, ungrateful spread, Keith McKaren, ass dismissed, and the return of the Weekly Seen.

Time for another edition of the Weekly Dump! We kicked off summer this week, surviving our first ever “post pandemic” Memorial Day weekend. We’re seeing downtown get re-shaped, packing heat downtown, gunfights on Elm Street, getting assaulted with a deadly weapon at “Friendship Gardens”, making the Baby Jesus cry, set up like a bowling pin, a running stolen car isn’t a good place to pass out, it’s good to have friends with Narcan, subjective law enforcement fail, Watsonville thieves arrested, faith hope and charity, two killed in Corralitos crash, and Big Basin Vineyards is opening a new wine bar downtown!
It’s our 5 year anniversary this week! Every week for the past 5 years, I’ve put out the Weekly Dump, bring you the vibrantly honest news and views of Santa Cruz. How did I celebrate? I went to see Los Lobos on Cowells beach last night and took my time publishing this morning! In other news, a local vagrant playing in traffic on Mission Street got arrested, ninja gangs, solo crash in Seabright kills local man, he’s gone, keeping our local pets safe and sane, crash into me, grand slam in front of Denny’s, Felton RV fires, hopping over the wrong fence, The Wolves are back, new community wellness center coming to Live Oak, Zooming in on the city council meeting, and we keep handicapping Ryan’s successor.
Time for the latest Weekly Dump! New look for the website too! As for the content, we’re talking yellow! And we’re going in and out as usual, a man drowned at Main Beach this week, gangbangers with guns, getting your kicks in San Lorenzo park, the hook brings them back, Felton burglar arrested, swatting flies, and the race for Ryan’s seat continues.
What in the hell blew up in Santa Cruz last night? That’s the big question! We also say goodbye to the bum camp festering near the intersections of Highways 1&9, the forecast calls for rainclouds, outstanding, Santa Cruz man arrested for stealing a police car, jail escapee arrested, the latest COVID numbers from the county, the slow slog towards district elections, Zooming in on the city council meeting, Pablo Cruising at the Dream Inn, and handicapping Ryan’s seat.
