Santa Clara Ice–a new outdoor iceskating rink in Central Park, 969 Kiely Blvd.–opened November 21 under blue sky, sunshine and 70-degree weather. The very first paid customers were Lorenzo Cinco and his three-year-old son, also Lorenzo, celebrating his birthday a few days early.
"My son was thrilled. He did great for the first time," says Cinco. "I felt very welcomed. We had a terrific time and even got some free pointers. We're thrilled that we have this opportunity here in Santa Clara."
Beth Sevilla was throwing a sixth birthday party for her daughter, Erin, at the skating rink. A canopy-covered area for serving cake and opening gifts was reserved just for the party.
"We thought it would be fun to do. It's in our own backyard," says Sevilla. "It's really great. It feels intimate."

October 13, 2015 was an important day in Santa Clara history. That's the first time the City Council, Stadium Authority, Sports and Open Space Authority, and Housing Authority met concurrently under one consolidated agenda – now considered a 'best practice' for cities, according to the Santa Clara City's Clerk's office.
The City Council's governance committee – Mayor Jamie Matthews, and Council Members Patrick Kolstad and Teresa O'Neill – proposed the change.
"Simply put, this new, streamlined agenda is less cumbersome and makes it easier for Santa Clarans to participate with their City Council,” said Mayor Jamie Matthews in a news release.
Approved at the Sept. 29 Council meeting, concurrent meetings replace of Santa Clara's former practice – dating back to the 1950s – of posting four separate agendas, many with no action scheduled except approving the previous meeting's agenda. The new format also eliminates redundant items on multiple agendas...
At the end of the Santa Clara City Council Meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 10, Councilmember Lisa Gillmor read a short biography submitted by community member Kathy Watanabe: “Jenn will always be remembered for her faith in God, love of family, laughter, support and always being positive; even when she was diagnosed, she said, ‘smiles not tears.’” That citizen was Jennifer Garcia, a wife and mother who died at age 40 on Nov. 6 after a long battle with synovial sarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue.
“I’m going to remember Jenn by her smile, her hugs and her commitment as a wife to me,” says Michael Garcia, husband of Jennifer Garcia. “She was my college sweetheart.”
Michael Garcia met Jennifer Garcia when they both worked at Macy’s during their college years. He was working in the women’s department while she was a seasonal hire in the holiday department. A friend introduced the two. After a seven year courtship, Michael and Jennifer Garcia married on September 30, 2000...
‘Getting away’ was the theme of the latest Library essay contest. Not surprisingly, the participating teens’ individual passions are their escapes. Sofia Kritikopoulos wrote about running. Emma Mustovic wrote about books. Akshitha Venguideshe wrote about Venice. These winners and others were recognized at an awards ceremony on Oct. 28. The Santa Clara City Library gave away a total of $440 in prize money.
“For about the last eight years, we’ve always done an art contest or writing contest for Teen Read Week to bring attention to Teen Read Week and our library,” says Nan Choi, teen services librarian at the Santa Clara City Library.
Grand prize winner Ziana Deen, 17, won $100 in prize money. Her essay, “A Home Away from Home” expresses her love for Malaysia, her mother’s home country...
Diners had no cause for alarm November 12 when Santa Clara Assistant Chief of Police Chief Dan Winter strode into the Fish Market Restaurant, 3775 El Camino Real, Santa Clara. It was not a crime scene. Rather it was the scene at lunch and dinner of the annual fall Tip-A-Cop fundraiser benefitting local Special Olympics athletes.
Winter, State Director of the Northern California Law Enforcement Torch Run, joined other volunteers to assist the Fish Market's regular servers by giving extra attention to the diners. The volunteers told diners about Special Olympics, which has served Northern California athletes with intellectual disabilities since 1995 (www.sonc.org).
Above and beyond their normal tips to servers, diners tipped the cops generously, donating $4,027 to help provide athletes with free, year-round sports training and Olympic competition opportunities in 11 different sports.
Volunteers included SCPD officers, Special Olympics athletes themselves, PAL volunteer youth Explorers, and Community Service Officer Stacy Gross...
