Sheriff’s Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller Memorial in Aptos, CA (2024)

 

From the Press Banner, by Tarmo Hannula

"An unveiling was held last week at the completion of Willowbrook County Park in Aptos for Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller, who was gunned down in June 2020 while on duty.

“Our sincerest heartfelt thank you to all who contributed to the dedication of Willowbrook Park in honor of our fallen Sergeant, Damon Gutzwiller,” the Sheriff’s Office posted on social media. “Today, after years of hard work and planning, we gathered for the final unveiling of the memorial area.”

The long-standing park, on Willowbrook Lane near Cabrillo College, was a common place for Gutzwiller to visit with friends, family and his dog, Shasta. He grew up in Santa Cruz County, owned his first home in the Willowbrook neighborhood and served with the Sheriff’s Office for 14 years.

The park features benches, a kid’s play area, restrooms, new paths, signage, barbecue stations, a fountain, a new flagpole and seven metal plaques with words of honor for Gutzwiller and service to the community.


On June 6, 2020, Steven Carrillo ambushed deputies and California Highway Patrol officers in Ben Lomond, killing Gutzwiller and injuring three others.

Carrillo, 34, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in the Ben Lomond incident after being handed a 41-year federal sentence for an Oakland shooting that left one officer dead and another injured.

Carrillo worked in concert with Robert Justus, 34, of Millbrae in the May 29, 2020, Oakland attack. While Justus drove a van, Carillo operated as the shooter from the back of the van as they approached an Oakland Federal Courthouse and opened fire. 

U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers handed down the sentence of life in prison to Justus last Friday for his role in the shooting.

The pair were members of an extremist group, the Boogaloo Boys, who among other things believe another Civil War is on the horizon.

The Santa Cruz County Department of Parks, Open Spaces and Cultural Services, the Santa Cruz County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, County Park Friends and Supervisor Zach Friend were behind fundraising and organizing the creation of the park."

🌊 Sea Dub🏀  Sunrise 🌅 — Drone 4K (2024)

 

The @kaiserpermanente arena has been the home of the Santa Cruz Warriors @gleaguewarriors for the last 12 years.⁣

This is where @nba dreams💭 become a reality. Players who consistently shine ✨ in the G-League can receive the opportunity to be called up to the @warriors , like current player @effort_les ⁣

@guisantos_4 is currently a two-way player.⁣

Both have played in the last several games for the Warriors, and Lester hit a memorable half-court shot at the end of the 1st quarter against the Atlanta Hawks.👌🏼⁣

As of February 22, 2024, the Warriors have converted Lester’s two-way to a standard NBA contract, congrats! 🎉

Pleasure Point Amphitheater⁣ ⁣— Drone 4K (2023)

 

Last stop on a drone tour of some of the community projects completed by @tomralstonconcrete in Santa Cruz, we arrive at Pleasure Point on the east side.⁣

An amphitheater incorporates beautifully colored concrete with real sea shells, beach glass, shark 🦈 teeth 🦷 and fossil replicas from the Monterey Bay.⁣

The main embed was a replica of a 5-million year old whale 🐋 bone 🦴 that was located in May of 2010 approximately 500 yards south of the amphitheater. ⁣

The terraces mimic the geology of the ocean shelves of Monterey Bay. As one sits on the concrete ‘shelves’ you have an uninterrupted view of surfers 🏄🏽‍♀️🏄🏾 riding the Pleasure Point waves. 🌊⁣

This is a great spot to meet up with friends or family, walk the dog 🐶, push strollers, people watch or catch a sunrise. 🌅

Rio Theatre Improvements ✨⁣ — Drone 4K (2023)

 

Next up on a drone tour of some of the community projects completed by @tomralstonconcrete in Santa Cruz, we are leaving the west side and heading to midtown to the @riotheatresantacruz — a historic landmark built in 1949, with a unique “cycloramic” screen which gave a wrap-around panorama and illusion of depth.⁣
⁣


A new green color-infused concrete sidewalk with a red curb + gutter, and three bronze safety bollards were installed at the front entrance. Embedded in the concrete is the Rio Theater’s logo and a historical plaque featuring Laurence Bedford’s profile, both cast in bronze.⁣

Local singer-songwriter Tom Ralston’s Band will play a benefit concert for @secondharvestsantacruz on Saturday December 2, 2023 at the Rio Theater, from 7pm - 10pm. The band has a unique sound incorporating jazz, soul, and rock, with his 14-piece ensemble with string and horn section.

Evergreen Cemetery Restoration — Drone 4K⁣ (2023)

 

Next up on a drone tour of some of the community projects completed by @tomralstonconcrete in Santa Cruz is Evergreen Cemetery — one of the oldest cemeteries in California, created in 1858.⁣

A new ADA pathway was created that allows everyone to access the cemetery’s grounds. A Chinese Gate ⛩️ commemorates Chinese immigrants who lived and worked in Santa Cruz. As I was filming, a dark-morph red-tail hawk was seemingly keeping guard on top of the gate.

Surfer Statue Stairs, Cowell’s Stepping Stones Park, Roundabout — Drone 4K (2023)

 

Let’s continue a drone tour of some of the community projects completed by @tomralstonconcrete throughout Santa Cruz.⁣

The Surfer Statue stairs allow surfers another access point to the ocean and helps them get in and out of the water. ⁣

Cowell’s stepping stones park provides a viewing area for tourists and locals alike to watch the surfers. Kids have a place to play and jump between the rocks. ⁣

The roundabout at the entrance to the Santa Cruz Wharf, Beach St. and Pacific Ave. join together in a continuous flow of traffic, instead of having a 4-way Stop or traffic lights. In the center there is a pod of stone dolphins.

Princes of Surf Plaque, Steamer Lane Stairs & Concrete Path — Drone 4K (2023)

 

Let’s take a drone tour of some of the community projects completed by @tomralstonconcrete throughout Santa Cruz.

The Princes of Surf plaque at the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum pays homage to the three princes who rode Santa Cruz waves in 1885, the first known instance of mainland surfing.

The Steamer Lane stairs were replaced and a concrete path (“Wally Pads”) was poured along the base of the cliffs, to help surfers get in and out of the water.

Chinatown Dragon Arch ⛩⁣ 4K (2021)

From the plaque:⁣
The Chinatown Bridge⁣
This Chinese dragon gate commemorates the naming of the Chinatown Bridge over the San Lorenzo River and the often forgotten history of Chinese immigrants in Santa Cruz County.⁣

The dragon — a symbol of power, strength, and good fortune in Chinese culture — pays homage to the tenacity, endurance and ingenuity of those who survived in Santa Cruz despite persistent anti-Chinese racism and hostilities. It also honors both their spirits and their descendants who still grace and enrich this community.⁣

#Urban_automated_driving (2019)

Mercedes-Benz and Bosch, together with San Jose, CA, start an interesting pilot project for an automated ridesharing service.

Bosch and Mercedes-Benz hope the pilot automated ridesharing project will provide additional insights for the development of automated driving. The automated S-Class vehicles, which are equipped with the drive system and software from Bosch and Mercedes-Benz, offer a shuttle service between West San José and the city centre. The Daimler Mobility AG fleet platform allows ridesharing partners to seamlessly integrate self-driving vehicles into their service portfolio. The city of San José contributes its urban infrastructure to the pilot project in order to enhance safety, environmental impact and traffic flows.

🌌 Ancient Emojis 🌀 Drone 4K (2018)

Seemingly alien, these etchings are actually Native American petroglyphs aka “rock art”. This prehistoric rock art was etched or engraved 1000-3000 years ago by predecessors of Owens Valley Paiutes, and offer a palpable connection to ancient culture. Most rock art locales in California and Nevada are power spots or vision quest sites. They are often places where Native American shamans, often called medicine men or healers, entered an altered state of consciousness to journey to supernatural realms for instruction or empowerment.

Samsung: TLC V-NAND SSDs (2016)

The world’s first 3D vertical-NAND Solid State Drive from Samsung. The triple-level-cell or TLC technology allows Samsung to make its storage more efficient in a smaller space and up performance using Samsung’s proprietary 3D V-NAND manufacturing process.

Samsung’s V-NAND enables the production of SSDs that are faster, consume less energy and have greater reliability than conventional SSDs produced through the widely-used planar process. And TLC SSDs themselves can deliver a 50% increase in storage capacity compared to the long popular MLC or multi-level cell SSDs.

Samsung’s
industry-leading SSD portfolio helps you meet or surpass critical speed requirements in the enterprise, doing away with performance bottlenecks. It offers TLC enterprise SSDs that can support up to a million transactions per second within a single drive. This is up to 5000 times faster than the fastest enterprise hard drives.

4th Annual Santa Cruz Waves Sandbar Shootout (2015)

It was a gorgeous day with some nice swell down at Seascape Beach for the Sandbar Shootout surf contest. This is the 4th year that Santa Cruz Waves has run this event, and this was the best yet! Surfers from all over Santa Cruz surfed in this invitational event. The weather was perfect and the sandbars delivered. The use of the Whammy (each heat the contestant claimed what he thought was his best wave by throwing his arms in the air or other gestures) made the contest extra fun. This year there was a prize for the best Whammy claim motions. It was between Austin Smith-Ford and Kyle Thierman… Thierman won with a stunning routine. The four who make it the finals were Austin in 4th, Shane Desmond in 3rd and a close 1.6 point difference that put Chad Underhill-Meras (last year’s champ) in second and world touring, West Side local Nat Young in first.

 

Sponsors included: Driscoll’s, Reef, Santa Cruz Salmon Jerky, East Side Eatery, Seascape Foods, Pleasure Pizza, Local Style, Palapas, Monte Foundation, New Leaf, Oakley, Deluxe Foods, and Ventana Surfboards.
