Letter: Senior center leaves much to be desired

In a so-called effort to crack down on the number of people going to the Senior Center lunch program, I was unfairly singled out as an unwelcome guest, as I like to ride my bike to the weekday lunch program. This is nonsense. I guess...

Letter: Grateful for police

“If the police force in London stopped working for one day, the city would devolve into mayhem.” My dad told me this years ago, in a thick accent, when I was a teenager. I did not believe him. I thought to myself, “most people...

Letter: Consolidating Gilroy city commissions

At the Jan. 10 city council meeting, the council voted 5-2 to consolidate our 13 city commissions into nine commissions. For perspective with our nearest neighbors, Morgan Hill has four commissions and Hollister has six.  The decision to consolidate down to nine places the function...

Letter: We have much to learn from Amah Mutsun

Naka Elelleh has told one side, an important side, of the El Camino Bell story (“These bells don’t jingle,” Dec. 31). But as we know, there are many points of view and the El Camino Bells mean different things to different people. There is...

Letter: Do what’s right—get vaccinated

We are now going in reverse (again) because of all the ignorant people who refuse to be vaccinated for Covid-19. I don’t understand it at all. If everyone had done it after day one we would not be going backwards. Wake up and do...

Letter: Poem left out the Gilroy Rodeo

I enjoyed reading your 2021 Holiday Poem...but how could you forget to include the one and only large event that happened this year: Gilroy Rodeo.  The Gilroy Rodeo was a much-needed and fun event, enjoyed by returning attendees, as well as many first-time attendees. This...

Letter: Inaction on transportation problems is deadly

Whenever I read about another fatal crossover collision I remember giving the eulogy for Morgan Hill’s Janet Graham at her church. The San Benito County Health Nurse was killed in one of these on Hwy. 25 before COG “leaders” decided to install center dividers.  I...

Letter: Cost for SROs is well worth students’ safety

Councilmember Zach Hilton has been very public in sharing his belief that school resource officers are detrimental to our schools. He recently retweeted a tweet blaming an SRO for not stopping a mass shooting from happening at Oxford High where four students were killed...

Letter: Complying with officers is not a sign of weakness

Last Saturday at 3:50am my wife and I were awakened by loud noises. My daughter was asleep in her room. I found a 20-something year-old, hooded, male trying to kick in our front door.  After about five minutes of a very tense situation, Gilroy Police...

Letter: Remarks on time capsule were hurtful

Every level of government relies on volunteers. Nowhere is this more visible than in our local community, for it is here, at home, where community spirit is strongest. People freely volunteer their time and talent to support their schools, churches, civic committees and other...
