Look for it this week.
Earlier this week we stopped by the Milias Restaurant for a bite to eat. Ann Zyburra, one of the owners, shared with us a copy of our March gmhToday that young Megan graciously autographed for them. The smile on the cover is the one she wears all the time!
Beautifully photographed and smartly written, Gilroy & Morgan Hill Today is a must read for South County residents and visitors alike. The cities Gilroy and Morgan Hill distinguish themselves from each other in many ways, but they share the same strong sense of community which comes alive on the pages of this engaging publication. I keep the latest copy in my County office for visitors to read and enjoy. Congratulations to J. Chris and Larry Mickartz for publishing nearly 50 issues and best wishes for the next 50 issues of their gmhToday publication! Read the remainder of this entry »

Martha McNiel loved horses even as a child. Her father had no problem with her taking horseback riding lessons, attending horse camp and going for trail rides. Buying a horse, however, was out of the question. Like the old saying goes, the best things in life are worth waiting for.

Driving a stagecoach was a matter of pride for the hardy men who operated the old Coast Stage lines. The drivers often worked in 24-hour runs and withstood all sorts of inclement weather.

Recently I had the opportunity to spend the morning with Jenny Midtgaard Derry, learn about her multi-faceted career, and shadow her at work. Derry is a Construction Manager with the Gilroy Unified School District (GUSD), and it’s as interesting to see how she tackles the job as it is to understand the career journey that prepared her for it.

A Gilroy Today story by Larry J. Mickartz
In the late ‘70s, after the passage of Proposition 13, a lot of public service and nonprofit agencies began to worry about the future of their programs. Bill Ayer, Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Gilroy, was one of those. Along with a group of community leaders they started the Gilroy Foundation. The original idea to support Parks & Recreation evolved into a “permanent saving account” for all interests of Gilroy. The idea was to set up endowments where only 5% of the money would be used each year.
