SANTA CRUZ — The fate of a large, unsanctioned Santa Cruz homeless camp hangs in the balance. The city and county of Santa Cruz recently approved a plan to close the camp behind the Gateway Plaza shopping center by March 15, planning to offer its estimated 150 residents beds at a range of new, renewed and expanded emergency shelters. But the Santa Cruz City Council voted to re-evaluate its approval at two upcoming meetings prior to the planned closure. The encampment has raised public health and safety concerns from neighbors and officials due to the high concentration of homeless residents in a sprawl of tents and tarps spread across area roughly the size of a football field behind Gateway Plaza and adjacent to the San Lorenzo River levee — reminiscent of a similar encampment that formed nearby in San Lorenzo Park last year.

This week, some camp residents agreed to share their own views on the camp’s closure and whether they would be willing to move to an emergency shelter bed, if offered. Homeless and living in a tent in the camp, 50-year-old Shannan Vudmaska said she has little interest in staying in an emergency shelter bed. “I have a dog, I have belongings, I have friends,” Vudmaska said. “I’m supposed to give up all those things to go into a shelter, go into housing — and be back out here in two years.” A longtime area resident whose son, she said, graduated from Scotts Valley High, Vudmaska said she has been homeless for six years following a domestic violence incident. She said she continues to suffer from post-traumatic stress and sees no clear path forward out of homelessness. Only service animals are allowed at multiple area shelters, a definition it’s not clear Vudmaska’s pet dog could meet. At least some of her personal possessions could likely be stored at an existing Day and Night Storage Program, however. Jeremy Floodman, 31, said he was one of the first to set up camp behind the Gateway Plaza late in October. He said he might be willing to try out a shelter bed if he is forced to pack up and leave, but he sees rules like an early nightly curfew as untennable for himself and most camp residents. “These people, I don’t think they really care about if they have a bed for them,” Floodman said of his fellow camp residents. “We find beds ourselves. It’s more about having the freedom and a place to call our own — not fenced up and feeling like we’re locked up.” Jeremy Floodman, 31, grew up in the Santa Cruz area and went to Soquel High. He presently lives in a large tent with two others at the homeless encampment behind Gateway Plaza. (Dan Coyro — Santa Cruz Sentinel) Enforced curfews at emergency shelters are necessary especially when the shelters are in residential neighborhoods as is the VFW shelter in Live Oak, according to Santa Cruz County spokesman Jason Hoppin. “We’re a neighbor, and like everyone who lives within that neighborhood, we abide by certain norms,” Hoppin wrote in an email, responding to concerns raised by Vudmaska and other camp residents. “That being said, we are not opposed to lower-barrier shelters if the setting and circumstances are appropriate,” he added, citing low-barrier models up and running in San Francisco and Sacramento that are showing signs of success. Those kinds of sheltering models will be explored moving forward, he said, but not before the planned camp closure. Robin Flanigan, 52, was visiting her sister at the camp Wednesday. Herself homeless, Flanigan said she lives elsewhere in her van. She said she is skeptical about the plan to open and expand shelters and wishes officials engaged in a more meaningful dialogue with camp residents before making decisions on their behalf. “Do they send anybody down here? No they don’t. Do they really truly talk to any of us to see what will work for us? No they don’t,” she said. “So they just do what they feel is best for us, and meanwhile, it doesn’t solve anything.” Robin Flanigan, 52, lives in her van while her sister is living in the Ross camp. (Dan Coyro — Santa Cruz Sentinel) Both the Santa Cruz police chief and Mayor Martine Watkins have reportedly visited the camp and spoken with residents. Health-related visits have been made multiple times per week, according to county officials, and an outreach effort about the new emergency shelter beds is planned this week, but it’s unclear exactly what that effort will look like. The camp residents acknowledge there are problems with the status quo. Theft of personal possessions is said to be common. Its residents acknowledge that many there are addicted to drugs, and at least one person died at the camp of drug overdose in recent months. “Do I think this (camp) is a good idea? No I don’t, because I don’t think being on public display is healthy for any of us,” Vudmaska said. “But I do think there should be an area that’s decriminalized so we can have some stability.” Floodman said he, too, understands the public health and safety concerns raised by the camp, but he thinks those issues could be solved with better organization. “I know there are some problems that need to get fixed, but if we could get together — get a leader, a mayor, organize it a little bit and shake out the rough edges — I think it could work.” Vudmaska added that she supports a day center model that would provide services such as showers, phone charging and storage. No day center service is currently available in Santa Cruz County, but such services may be included in a proposed all-day shelter for 100 people that officials hope to open July 1. Another camp resident, who would only identify himself by his nickname, Popeye, shared a very different problem he’s experienced with shelter beds. “They haven’t actually separated out the snorers,” he said. “I swear to god, I will sleep in the river — when you’re locked up and have people snoring, it’s like a hurricane.” Closing the Santa Cruz homeless, according to Hoppin, remains important for public health and safety reasons even in the face of resistance from its homeless residents. “Providing safe alternatives to encampments is the best option for both homeless individuals and the community,” he said in an email. But Flanigan, and others, don’t think the emergency shelter beds will be used by many of the camp’s residents. So what happens if the camp is closed March 15? “We’ll go to the next place,” she said. “Just like we always have.”

CELTIC idol John Hartson insists Brendan Rodgers won’t walk out on the Bhoys. Not when he can win ten-in-a-row and walk on water. Brendan Rodgers celebrates a Celtic victory Hartson’s old team-mate Chris Sutton has questioned whether Rodgers will quit the club this summer. But Hartson insists there’s no chance of that happening. He said: “I don’t go along with the idea Brendan will leave Celtic in the summer. “He loves his job and if he wins ten-in-row he could walk on water — and I think Brendan would quite like to walk on water! John Hartson has backed Rodgers to stay “He’s living the dream as it is. It’s not about money for him. I think Brendan is very wealthy and he’s still very young in terms of management. “As a man still in his 40s, he’ll have another 20 years at the top. “As things are he’s very well thought of and could probably pick his next job, whether that’s abroad or back in the Premier League. “But for now I like to believe he’s at Celtic for the long haul. “I said on television the other night that it looked like some of the Celtic players had their eyes on a different prize. “For me, they want that Treble again. Now that would be a monumental feat, if they were to go and do the treble Treble. “Right now they are favourites to do it, so Brendan will want to get that out of the way. With him, he thinks game by game and the next trophy. “But I believe he’s here to stay. His contract tells you that, with another few years left on it. I don’t think there is any issue on that front. Rodgers won his first Treble with Celtic in 2017 “Obviously we don’t know for certain what’s happening at boardroom level and everything else that goes along with it, but I don’t think there is any offer out there at the minute that would tempt Brendan away. “He’s managed big clubs, so it’s not about the money. “No disrespect, but him being offered a big-money job elsewhere isn’t like someone at Livingston getting the chance to go to Celtic. “I just think Brendan will want to create history.” Hartson reckons Celtic will be unstoppable in their quest for ten-in-a-row if they can win title No8 this season. He said: “If it goes to eight after Rangers having a go by appointing Steven Gerrard and bringing in 19 players this season then, for me, the next two will be inevitable because Celtic will strengthen their squad. “They’ll probably bring in five or six new faces. Will Brendan still be there to bring them in? We don’t know for sure. “I said last summer Celtic would win the title by 15 points and they’re eight ahead at the moment, so we’ll wait and see. Rodgers on the touchline “But my belief is that if they do finish first again, after having all those injuries to deal with, plus the situation with Dedryck Boyata, then that’s the sign of a good group.” Celtic moved eight points clear of their rivals at the top of the table with Sunday’s late win over Kilmarnock. But Hartson insists his old club still have work to do to seal their eighth straight title. He added: “I wouldn’t say that Celtic have won the league because they still have to play Rangers and Aberdeen twice and there are loads of points to play for and tough venues to go to. “When you look at Rangers, they beat Celtic comfortably at Ibrox in December, but the difference since the winter break has been telling. “Celtic have reacted and responded and the players they have brought in — Timo Weah, Oli Burke and Jeremy Toljan — have all had an impact, whereas Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe haven’t made as big a mark as people would have thought by now. “Celtic deserve a lot of credit for coming back from that defeat to Rangers as they were well beaten that day and had no excuses.

The Kilmarnock result is now a huge momentum shifter. “Sometimes when you are up there you get that little bit of luck and the fans will feel it was a massive result. EMBARRASSING Scott Brown slammed by talkSPORT host for Killie celebration “It was all about getting the win and now Celtic just need to keep winning games.” John Hartson was presenting a cheque for £20,000 on behalf of his Foundation to the Beatson Cancer Charity in Glasgow.
