IVANO SAYS: AS YOU CAN SEE ABOVE, I'M TRYING SOMETHING KNEW. I know that some of you do not do Facebook. Accordingly you are missing out on some great historical photos and associated conversations with the "Facciabook" people of "La Nostra Costa (Our Coast), A Santa Cruz North Coast Journal, Facebook page. My good conscious could not let this happen, so I decided to share some of those photos and conversations with you on on the "Blagga". Lets see what happens. Sempre Avanti. Ivano.
Born the youngest son of Immigrant parents from the Friuli Region in Northeastern Italy, I was raised on a "rancio" on the North Coast of Santa Cruz. In 1959 I graduated from San Jose State College and joined the City Police Force. I retired in 1989 with the rank of Captain. In 2001, my article, "Wrong Side of the Highway," was published in the book, "Una Storia Segreta: The Secret History of Italian American Evacuation and Internment during World War II" (Heyday Books). "La Nostra Costa" (Our Coast),which covers my family's journey to and from the north coast, roughly covers the period between 1923 to 1983. It is my first book.
