Warriors say “Adios” as Juan Toscano-Anderson signs with Lakers

We must say R.I.P. to the J.T.A. era of the Golden State Warriors as the pride of East Oakland, Juan Toscano-Anderson, signed with the Los Angeles Lakers today. Toscano-Anderson grew up rooting for the hometown Warriors in Oakland - he wore No. 95 for the Warriors because he grew up on 95th Avenue. After four years at Marquette, he wasn’t picked in the 2015 NBA Draft, so he played professionally in Mexico for three years before making it to the Santa Cruz Warriors training camp roster through a local tryout. One month later he was on the opening night roster for Santa Cruz, and 15 months later he signed a three-year contract with the Warriors, and two years after that, he was an NBA champion.

Must-visit vintners of the 650: Your guide to the Peninsula’s wineries

Taste high-quality wine minus the drive to Napa. One more reason to love living on the Peninsula is the remoteness yet accessibility of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA (American Viticultural Area) wine region. And, unlike other wine regions where winery visits can feel like gimmicky shuttle stops, Peninsula wineries are forced to exist within the rugged landscape, not the other way around. Though most of the 70-plus wineries are within a one-hour drive between San Francisco and San Jose, they feel a world away. Keikilani McKay, executive director of Wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains, explains that “Unlike other wine AVAs, it’s not an easy stroll to visit these wineries, but their remoteness is what makes them so special. This is an inventor’s region, a place for discovery, and they attract like-minded people who are willing to drive through ridges and redwoods to find that great wine.”
