An unknown suspect threw a rock into the front glass door at Straw Hat Pizza on First Street and broke an arcade game to steal quarters. Officers discovered the burglary at 7 a.m. on Sept. 3. Quarters were all over the restaurant's floor. Nothing else appeared to be damaged or missing, said Police Sgt. Chad Gallacinao.
Another dog has claimed me as her human. It took three months after the death of my beloved Pumpkin for that inner voice to tell me, “I think you’re ready.” It’s sooner than I anticipated, but there was a void left behind - an emptiness that I knew could be filled by saving the life of another dog. I simply had to wait for my grief to ease and my heart to open enough to welcome a new companion home.

Dear Editor, I was delighted to see the article in last week's Dispatch about members of an apartment complex in Minnesota having to submit DNA samples from their pets to help identify the owners of dogs who repeatedly left poop on the property. Here in Gilroy, I am amazed by the frequently left droppings from dogs in the area encompassed by Mantelli, Calle del Rey and the Luigi Aprea School areas. Just this morning I counted six separate droppings on the sidewalk along the Pacific West Christian School's side area on Calle del Rey and could not begin to count the piles left on the dirt area long the rest of the school property. The same holds true along many other streets in the area to the point I don't dare look up at the lovely surrounding views while walking my dog in the mornings, as I have to be very vigilant about where I step.
