New rumblings are coursing through Santa Cruz, where businesses have been operating out of huge tents since the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake toppled much of downtown. This time the disturbance is man-made. The eclectic city--known for hippies, surfers and its UC campus mascot, the banana slug--has been in an uproar since Jan. 14, when the City Council voted 5 to 2 to tentatively approve an ordinance that would ban discrimination in employment or housing based on how someone looks.

The City Council of this fervently liberal seaside city voted unanimously Tuesday to pass the nation's highest living wage: $11 an hour, or $12 without benefits. Like most of the 50 other living wage ordinances nationwide, Santa Cruz's would at first only cover full-time workers for the city or for-profit companies with city contracts. Most city workers already make more than $11 an hour.

Sandra Loranger, a self-described "outlaw cook," sentenced to jail for feeding the homeless, says her incarceration won't stop her from serving soup and bread to the indigent in downtown Santa Cruz. "I fully intend to continue making food available to the homeless in this community," said Loranger, 49, who is to begin serving a 30-day jail term next Thursday at Santa Cruz County's minimum-security facility for women.
