Blessed Trinity

Paying attention, serving the arts, flipping the disc

By Mimi Hill

THIS WEEK YOUR LOCAL WEB TAXI takes you the long way home up to the DeLaveaga Disc Golf Course, where the views are so spectacular that people come from all over the world to play Frisbee. If you are one of those people who can rarely keep focused, CHADD has a local no-nonsense Web page for people with Attention Deficit Disorder. And the Cultural Council of SC County helps save and support the arts.

Attention Getter

I'll keep this one short. CHADD Cruzers (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder) has a homepage with speakers and topics listed. This organization is a nonprofit, parent-based organization formed to better the lives of individuals with Attention Deficit Disorder and those who care for them. Through family support and advocacy, public and professional education and encouraging scientific research, CHADD works to ensure that those with Attention Deficit Disorder are given the opportunity to reach their inherent potential. The next meeting is on May 14 and features Dr. Rick Gilbert speaking on "Adolescence."

Art: It Isn't Just for Breakfast Anymore

Do you know who this year's Gail Rich Award recipients are? Wonder what art grants are available to locals? Would you like to take a self-guided Open Studios tour? How does one find out more about Spectra, Hearts for the Arts, Young at Art and the Ethnofete? The Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County has the answers. A variety of programs and services ensures that the arts are accessible and enjoyable to both residents and out-of-county visitors alike. The Cultural Council is a nonprofit organization that initiates, encourages and supports cultural and educational activities in Santa Cruz County and it also has a very informative Web page.

Threw Out a Disc

The DeLaveaga Disc Golf Course is fast gaining recognition for being one of disc golf's premier courses. Located in the hills overlooking the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, the course enjoys spectacular views, and the area's temperate climate yields good playing conditions year-round. De Laveaga is part of a 1200-acre park situated within the Santa Cruz city limits. The park's name comes from the family that willed the land to the city to be used as a multiple-use recreation zone. The park's current facilities include a picnicking area, lighted softball fields, an 18-hole golf course, miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails, an archery and shooting range and, of course, the disc golf course.
