Letter: America is in trouble

We have a big election this year. President Trump seems to think this is Joe Biden’s America, well it’s not, it’s Donald Trump’s America, where mayhem and chaos is now an everyday thing! Trump is a failure in every way! The virus, the economy. What...

Letter: Young was a bright presence

Your article about Gary Young’s death from Covid really touched me (South Valley, June 12, 2020). Gary was always a bright presence at Orchard Supply, then at Lowe’s. I couldn’t pass him without some mutual recognition; a simple hello or a brief conversation. At one...

LETTER: Ban leaf blowers during school hours

I would like to advocate for banning leaf blowers during school hours while the shelter-in-place requirement is in effect.  Many Gilroy homes have schoolchildren and college students relying on distance learning, and the noise of leaf blowers operating outdoors within a few hundred feet makes...

Santa Clara County has improved the Mt. Madonna archery practice range, the flat portion by the parking lot where you sight in your bow. However, 30 percent of the course has now been declared unsafe by ignorant county employees. Despite no accidents in 60...

Letter to the Editor: The Electoral College is a wake up call

My office has served the Gilroy community for over 100 years, 40 of them under my watch. Combative politics and modern technology has caused the principles of our republic, specifically the electoral college, to be lost.  Our republic was formed by rural states and populous...

A Sunday without electricity

I awoke Sunday morning in Gilroy to the glowing, rose-colored sun (unfortunately from fires burning to the north), varying sounds of chimes blowing in the wind, happily chirping birds sitting in swaying trees and the rumbling vibrations of generators providing electricity—because as of 9pm...
