Memory Still Sharp After Doobies
Congratulations to the Blues Festival folks for their 20-year run. Your article last week (“Big Blue Ball,” A&E) stated that the Doobie Brothers have not played a Santa Cruz concert in over 20 years. In fact, they headlined the Fat Fry Festival at Aptos Village Park, the same venue as the Blues Fest, on Sept. 26, 1999, less than 13 years ago. Fat Fry fans will especially remember two other artists on that bill, Derek Trucks and the Radiators, who jammed together on a hot Chicago blues number.
Oh, For Pitta’s Sake!
[RE: “Pitta For A Pittance,” Wellness, Feb. 22]: If cooking with coconut oil can move my lymph and stimulate my blood song, I'm all for it. I suggest eye of newt and wing of bat makes a fine brain juice as well. Joe Bob says, "Check it out."
Awaiting a clue to my blood song,

Defender o’ Democracy
[RE: “Water Customers Want To Be Included in Desal Vote,” Feb. 28]: Thank you to Supervisor Leopold for raising the issue of full democratic inclusion into the issue of water ratepayers having full voting rights on the matter of developing a desalination plant in the City of Santa Cruz.
Such a plant and therefore a vote will affect all ratepayers, not just those in the city limits.
I appreciate the Supervisor looking into how mid-county water customers can raise their voice on this issue.
