How many of you go back far enough in Scotts Valley to remember Friend Stone? Here is a write-up that's dated August 14, 1968 about the appreciation that many had for Mr. Stone and all he did for our little up and coming city back in the day.
*As we get closer to the 4th of July and our 50th Year Anniversary in August, we will be sharing lots of memorabilia, articles, pictures and stories that show the history of Scotts Valley.
Hope you enjoy!
Thank you Mayor Donna Lind for sharing this picture with all of us. :) ... See MoreSee Less
James TannerI feel sorry for them.
They provide a HUGE amount of money for our community.
I hate the traffic they contribute to but I blame those that drag their feet on road upgrades. Misguidedly thinking that's the way to slow growth. Just my 2 cents...

Jen NomiOuch! As much as I dislike beach traffic, some of the comments in this thread are sad. I think we should appreciate the people who visit, spend money here, and support our local economy. The unwelcoming attitude of "locals" is the one thing I really disliked when I moved here 20 yrs ago. I'm happy I'm able to live in a place so many like to visit!

Miriam MoyerSo hard on the holidays and with summer coming...
Tom NordWe were awed when we went to San Jose yesterday and the traffic was bumper to bumper from the summit all the way to Hamilton Ave in Campbell !! We were happy to be going the other way and thought there was not enough room on the coast for all those people!

Robert ScottI feel blessed to have grown up here. Me and my siblings could play ball in the street when we were kids, and rarely have to move for a car. Not no more!
Jill HitchmanThe traffic is a nightmare, and the trash being left behind on the beaches is upsetting, too. I have no problem with people visiting the beaches - we don't own them just because we live here - but people should at least clean up after themselves and be respectful of the environment, the marine life, and other people if they are coming to visit the beach.
Grace ReevesComing back from Antioch to Capitola last night, I took the "back route" over Old Santa Cruz Highway, Summit Rd, Soquel-San Jose Rd....and I kid you not, at 10pm ...yes 10 pm....there was an almost STEADY stream of cars moving along that back route from the time I got ONTO Old Santa Cruz Highway until I passed Blue Ball Park. It was the weirdest thing--that many cars, that late at night, that particular route.
The Felton Trout Farm said spread the news, and that's exactly what we are going to do by telling you all that they will be serving FREE Brats for Monday's game 7 of the Western Conference Finals between the Warriors and the OKC Thunder.
Great place to watch the game while enjoying some FREE munchies. As in FREE!
