Letter: The failure of finger-pointing

Unfortunately, for the third time in as many years, the Garlic Festival, due to numerous circumstances, will not take place. The community’s largest “family reunion,” to the disappointment of everyone, is on hold. What’s more disappointing is the firestorm of name-calling, finger-pointing (especially at the...

Letter: A local newspaper is essential

I read with great interest the Guest View article by Mr. Gary Walton, “It’s time to power up our local newspaper” (Gilroy Dispatch, March 25). I agree with such alarm and the fear of not having a local newspaper. Going through memory lane, I recall that...

Letter: Re-address Gilroy’s flagpole policy

Re: CNN article, May 4: “The Satanic Temple requests that Boston fly its flag after Supreme Court ruling” When the City of Gilroy first discussed the issue of flying the LGBTQ flag on the city's flagpole, a few of us tried to warn that the...

Letter: Nothing but bad news

I just got finished reading the morning newspaper and watching the news. I don’t know why I do that because all there is is bad news.  So what I got out of it was eye-opening: murder, street racing, kidnapping, racism, robbery, vandalism, Covid-19, inflation, war...

Two weeks ago, the Gilroy Garlic Festival Association announced that they would not be moving forward with the traditional large-scale Garlic Festival event for the foreseeable future. The news was met by all of us with sadness, disappointment and even anger. This event, a...

Letter: Recall effort against Armendariz is underway

A group of concerned citizens has formed to begin the official recall process of Councilmember Rebeca Armendariz. On Oct. 31, 2021, during a party that was held at the home of Armendariz, four young people were shot, resulting in the death of Michael Zuniga Macias...

Letter: Rushing to judgment

Despite the fact I have some good friends calling out for the resignation or recall of Councilmember Rebeca Armendariz, I believe the tone and volume of these calls to be poorly based and hasty. My perspective is of someone who lives in the country and...

Guest View: Fear has ended our annual homecoming

Ken Christopher
Gilroy Garlic. Over the years, the words have become so synonymous it is hard to think of one without the other. Growing up in Gilroy, as a member of the third generation of a “garlic family,” the association of this identity has become part...

Guest View: Fruits of our labor

Spring is an uplifting time to rejoice and watch how the “garden” grows. A true time of renaissance. During Downtown Gilroy’s Art Walk, I had the pleasure of seeing how the seeds of my teaching years blossomed. Like climbing roses with the right support coupled...
