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: 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...

Guest View: Gilroy’s commute problems

A person that lives in Gilroy and works in San Jose has to invest around $9,282 and 480 hours a year just to be able to go to work. Santa Clara County could reduce cost and time of travel by optimizing the current train...

Guest View: They aren’t invisible, we are just blind

Letter: The hallmark of a true community leader

Let me begin: I have known the honorable Rebeca Armendariz, member of the City Council of our great city, since she was a teenager and later as a staff member of the Citizen Project of Salinas, which was an off-site of the central office...

Guest View: A stimulating discussion

You may hear there was a lot of conflict at the Sept. 20 City Council meeting, but I suggest a different perspective. The focus was on a time capsule, part of the Covid-postponed celebration of Gilroy’s 150th anniversary as an incorporated city. The committee that...

Letter: We did not make you invisible

In early 2019, word was spread throughout Gilroy that Mayor Roland Velasco was asking for volunteers to form an ad hoc committee in order to celebrate Gilroy’s 150th birthday coming the following year. He felt that it was an important and monumental event which...

Editorial: DA should drop conspiracy charges

District Attorney Jeff Rosen’s conspiracy case against political supporters of Sheriff Laurie Smith has not gone smoothly. An appeals court in May removed the DA’s office from prosecuting one case, and then the state Supreme Court declined to hear the DA’s appeal. In August, Attorney...
