Hindsight 2019

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

Becerra gambles with lives

It is now too late to try and convince California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to back off, and allow Saint Louise and O’Connor hospitals to be saved by Santa Clara County. He has doubled down, and all of his cards are on the table. This...

Support our hospitals, Mr. Becerra

Santa Clara County Executive Jeff Smith has a difficult time understanding just what has occurred in the past two weeks. His vision of leading a dramatic expansion and improvement of a public healthcare system is suddenly on the verge of hitting a brick wall...
