Several Santa Cruz beaches will be closed until Saturday after a large shark chomped down on a kayak near shore Tuesday, city officials said. The shark attack was reported after 11 a.m. near West Cliff Drive and Pelton Avenue, said Scott Collins, a deputy city manager. The kayaker wasn’t hurt, but his boat sustained “excessive damage,” Collins said in a statement.

- True West
Wednesday Jun 9, 2010
The Empire State Building is my true north -- as it is for anyone who lives in downtown Manhattan. We get the occasional cowboy -- but he tends to be more Village People than Buffalo Bill. Also, oursense of space is radically different from the rest of the country. Some 3 million people inhabit this island; if "bedrooms," plural, is part of your vocabulary, count your blessings. To find, as ColePorter once wrote, "land, give me land, and the sunny skies above," we head west. For those seeking an authentic experience without actual contact, try True West.
- ‘Henry David Thoreau: A Life,’ by Laura Dassow Walls
By Colin Fleming - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
Laura Dassow Walls’ new biography — timed to Thoreau’s July 12 bicentennial — is akin to one of those less common ambles, an attempt to present us with a man who was only tokenly about sitting in a small wood house on a rise over a pond.If you’ve been to Walden Pond, and covered the ground back into town, you probably know that Thoreau’s experiment of living in the wild wasn’t really much of a wild-based experiment at all.Like his fellow Concordian — and a sort of Yoda to Thoreau’s Luke — Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thoreau was rangy and protean, one of those writers you never know how to classify.A Thoreau biography feels like it is going to be serious, heavy, sententious, maybe, probably not fun but good for you: like unsweetened cranberry juice straight from the bog.[...] what do you know — Walls alleviates this problem by finding humor in some of Thoreau’s various situations, if not his actual words.Normally he’s cited as someone pure of heart, enmeshed with nature, solely, and all of that hippie-dippyness, but from his days at Harvard, Thoreau was trying to beat the bag out of everyone else in terms of how far he wished to go in life, the impact he wanted to have on people, the recognition he desired.Walls rightly calls it “Walden’s dark twin,” with its “rough chaos of the liminal zone,” and the stylized — but still natural — metaphor of the lighthouse keeper making sure that his domicile remains a temple of light rather than darkness.The opening of the book has one of the great horror set pieces in 19th century writing, with Thoreau describing the shipwreck of the St. John with all of the poetic intensity of Mr. Swales talking about buried bodies eroding out of the cliff of the Whitby graveyard in “Dracula.”The same phrase could double as an encapsulation for his life, and now this biography, a rectangle of radiance in your hands, with its own glow.
