Letter: Honor victims by moving forward with Garlic Festival

Here is a letter that is long overdue. Do we really want to move the Garlic Festival to Gilroy Gardens? Really, and what about all the charities that are important to the city, and the room we need for a great festival of this...

Letter: Prayers for Ukraine

The Interfaith Clergy Alliance of South County expresses our pride in the community for the recent Peace Rally on behalf of Ukraine. It speaks to our community’s open heart that so many people came together in the name of peace. We add our prayers...

Letter: Adapt to change

April 10, 2022 marks 30 years after a drunk driver hit me when I was 16 years old. I had a four-month-long coma, broken bones, paralysis and brain injuries. My gait and speech is not perfect, and I read lips. Years of therapy and...

Letter: PG&E acting on natural gas price surge

PG&E is hearing from customers that energy bills are higher than normal. We understand increases are challenging. We’re taking action and helping customers.  Natural gas prices have risen significantly, about 90% higher than last winter in PG&E’s service area and nationwide. PG&E passes through the...

Letter: Make Gourmet Alley bigger and better

It looks like some people want to get a grant to do some new work on the alleyway between Fifth and Sixth streets, somewhat like the work done with Gourmet Alley. I wonder where the grant will come from? Sounds and looks expensive! Maybe it’s...

Letter: Council needs to revisit bell installation

When I was in fourth grade, I was so proud of the Mission I had constructed with popsicle sticks and glue! Now, however, many years later, I've been made aware of how the missions in California were used to exploit and subjugate indigenous peoples. Roadside...

Letter: Nursery’s generosity helps local charities

At the end of each year, bright red poinsettias can be seen in homes and businesses all over. In most cases, around South County, there is a silver sticker on the side of the shiny red foil that reads, Headstart Nursery.  For more than 25...

Letter: School officers provide positive role models for students

It saddens me to read that our Councilman Zach Hilton wants to try to eliminate our SRO (School Resource Officer) from our Gilroy schools. There may be other cities that don’t have an SRO due to budget cuts or lack of support from the...
