Editorial: We’re number one—unfortunately

This week, the rate of Covid-19 cases in Gilroy shot up to a new level, reaching 6,422 cases per 100,000 people. That’s the highest rate of any city in Santa Clara County, a statistic of which Gilroy should not be proud. By comparison, Morgan...

Editorial: Small businesses should not be taken for granted

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...

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...

Oct. 25 Time to say thank you Quietly, organically and without delay, our community—and people who had never even visited our community—demonstrated by their selflessness and their gift-giving that humanity and compassion have the capacity to build bridges, join hands, make alliances, find common ground and...

Time to say ‘Thank you’ for donations to fund

After three months of trauma, grief, vigils, fundraisers, healing, memorials and, for many, continuing pain, let’s take some time for some gratitude. As the #Gilroy Strong banner left Monterey Street and the flowers on the Uvas Creek bike trail faded and withered, hundreds of businesses...

Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting victims: We owe them a memorial

The large teddy bear has a layer of dust, and the candles are burned out. The cut flowers are wilted. Some of the handwritten notes are smudged by the morning dew, others are faded by the late-summer sun or were distributed along the Uvas...

Mental illness doesn’t explain gun violence

The notion that mental illness drives the current spate of mass shootings is a dangerous oversimplification. Some shooters, such as the Aurora. Col., movie theater gunman James Holmes, yes, have had diagnosed mental illness, while others have not. To unfairly stereotype people with conditions...
