Did you know that none other than Mr. Twister lives in Boulder Creek?
Mr. Twister was once notorious with the meter maids in downtown Santa Cruz for being a good Samaritan… you, see Mr. Twister puts coins in to strangers’ parking meters – so they won’t get a ticket. This activity, which was once somehow illegal, was made legal due to Mr. Twister’s good work.
With a pocket full of jangling quarters, Mr. Twister was taking the bus to town.
Here is a link to an article the Santa Cruz Sentinel wrote on Mr. Twister…. HERE
A quote from the article:
“When I see a parking meter and I see that it’s red, I look to see if there’s either a placard or a ticket already on it. Those people I really can’t do much for. So I save my quarter and when I see somebody who’s just going to be a couple minutes late, I put the quarter in there. And as you can see from the gentleman back there at the counter, some of these people really appreciate that.”
Cool..I see him at the bus stop sometimes and wondered who he was.
Keep up the good work Twister.
THAT’S MY UNCLE !!!!!
