It’s Ours. Our MorganHill

Posted November 22, 2014 By Larry MIckartz

 

34 MorganHillToday_34

This was not a planned venture. One quiet, Sunday afternoon, two Morgan Hill residents, after a beautiful walk and some nice pictures, decided to create a little Facebook site dedicated to Morgan Hill. All they wanted was a place to post some of the nice photos they took around town and a place to highlight the beauty of Morgan Hill. Thus It’s Ours. Our Morgan Hill came into being. That was in March 2013; today there are over 14,000 likes on this site and hundreds of regular visitors and contributors. The originator wanted to focus on Morgan Hill and did not see the need to have an “owner” associated with the site. On July 21 2014 however, the “Owner,” Rene Spring, let the word out that he had started the site and continues to manage it. Read the remainder of this entry »

A Morgan HIll Today Articile by Larry J. Mickartz

A little over two years ago, the idea of a local wine trail was born. Championed by the Association of Wineries of Santa Clara Valley, represented by Mike Sampagnaro, Dr. Jon Hatakeyama, Morgan Hill local, and Supervisor Mike Wasserman the plan became a reality. Signage was funded and installed by the County of Santa Clara, and the cities of Morgan Hill and Gilroy. The Gilroy Welcome Center and the Morgan Hill Chamber of Commerce provided additional project support.

54 MHLEAD

Morgan Hill Today article by Robin Shephard

As we head into the holiday season, it’s a good time to reflect on the events of 2014. For me, it has been a blessed year. Good health, time with family, wonderful work opportunities, and something else. I ventured out of my comfort zone and got involved in community life. This is a first for me, and I must say I’m glad to have chosen Morgan Hill as my community.

Leadership..Much to Learn from Dr. Seuss

Posted November 15, 2014 By admin

56 Cat in the Hat

THIS IS AN EXERPT FROM A PRESENTATION MADE BY THERESA KIERNAN, CLASS FACILITATOR, AT THE GRADUATION CEREMONY OF THE LEADERSHIP MORGAN HILL CLASS OF 2014. WE THANK HER FOR SHARING IT WITH US AND GIVING US THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.

 

With so many great books on leadership you can study and even more excellent examples of leaders you can aspire to be like, I was overwhelmed with the options for tonight’s presentation. So I went to the top of the list, to the best expert out there…Dr. Seuss!  That’s right. Dr. Seuss has some great insights as to how to be the best leader with five very simple lessons of life that every leader can live by.

A Morgan Hill story by Robin Shepherd

Flash back to the summer of 2000. For John McKay and his wife Michelle it had been a long hard week at work. Ready to escape the concrete, traffic congestion and go-go pace of life in Silicon Valley, they hopped into their van and headed south on 101. Their destination is Morgan Hill.

Villa Mira Monte

38 Mira Monte

Morgan Hill Today article by Mike Monroe • Villa Mira Monte Photo By Susan Brazelton • Sketch Provided By Morgan Hill Historical Society

One of my favorite depictions of Villa Mira Monte in Morgan Hill is a sketch from an August 1892 edition of the San Jose Mercury News. The drawing by an unknown artist is featured in a book by Beth Wyman entitled “Hiram Morgan Hill.” The orientation of the sketch views the backside of the ranch property looking southwest from the railroad tracks with El Toro Mountain prominently, and accurately, portrayed in the backround. It certainly was and still is a pretty view.
