The May 26 mass shooting at the Valley Transportation Authority’s light rail facility in San Jose has destroyed many families and rocked the county, state and nation. It hits even harder in South County, where we are still reeling from the two senseless mass casualty...

Editorial: The garlic is back

At last, the Gilroy Garlic Festival will have air conditioning. No more baking in the mid-summer heat at Christmas Hill Park, where the temperature on the ground is further elevated by the intense flames of the pyro chefs. No more jostling for position underneath the...

We thought we would’ve had more time to lace up the slippery shoes, choose the perfect-sized and weighted ball, and hit the lanes for a few final frames. But as the closure of Gilroy Bowl and Scotty’s Restaurant showed, time is elusive during life under...

Editorial: Council needs to listen to voters when filling vacancy

Marie Blankley will be Gilroy’s next mayor, which means the Gilroy City Council will have to make a decision in December. Blankley’s council seat will become vacant once Mayor Roland Velasco passes the gavel. The council can decide to fill it by either a special...

Editorial: Marie Blankley for mayor

Gilroy’s next mayor will face an unprecedented financial situation that is mired in uncertainty. The mayor alone won’t be able to solve this issue. But how effectively they lead the city council during the next four years will be critical to Gilroy’s long-term survival. There is...

Editorial: Thrill on the Alley

With distanced outdoor dining all the rage, there’s never been a better time to roll out Gilroy’s long marinating Gourmet Alley project. The branded corridor, which runs between Monterey and Eigleberry streets from 3rd to 7th, has had its cool-sounding name for at least...
