The early 70's...Ed Kemper and Herbert Mullin, between them they murdered 21 people. Kemper had spent time in prison for murder as a youth, but had been released, then went right back to it.

Is the Santa Cruz boardwalk still on the beach?

You bet! I believe it has the last wooden roller coaster on the West Coast, or at least one of them. The Looff Carousel is a National Historical Monument, and dates from 1911.

I remember riding on that roller coaster. I was probably 9 or 10 .... as a "He-Man", I bought two tickets with my allowance. Took my ride and was so spooked that I shyed from taking that second ride. My Grandfather, at 90 years old, grabbed my remaining ticket and hoped on. Guess he showed me ... and I'm not sure he ever paid me back. I wish he was still around!


Anyone traveling that California coast, take in that Santa Cruz boardwalk and roller coaster!!!!!!

The "city fathers" would prefer we all forget the FBI statistics (http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/art...WS/130408129); however, as SantaCruzer states, it's a sad fact. I have a cousin-in-law who used to be the police chief of a small town in New Jersey and who told me years ago they solved their transient issues by giving problem people a one-way ticket to Santa Cruz ... a city known for great weather, tolerance and an abundance of social services. I thought it sounded preposterous at the time, now I think he was probably telling the truth.

Seems like a simple, yet reasonably secure solution to discourage casual thievery.

Sad, but true. Other cities and mental hospitals identify a tolerant city or town and ship their problems off. It is illegal, and many institutions have been sued for such practices. It is however, hard to prove and generally requires the cooperation of the indigent person, who is not likely to be a competent witness.
