Two Million Guests And Counting - Levi’s Stadium Buzzing After First Year
By Robert Haugh

The pomp and circumstance surrounding the opening of Levi’s Stadium seems to have been mere months ago, but the home of the 49ers opened one year ago.

While welcoming over two million guests in the maiden year, the stadium is heading into it’s second year, almost quietly, with little pomp...

Team Chicken Run Ready to Take Flight

This Saturday, the insane wackiness of the Red Bull Flugtag will arrive in Portland, Oregon, and while Santa Clara is rarely represented among contestants, this year, there will be one: Brendan Palmer, a member of Team Chicken Run who will be pier-diving with a group of friends, which includes team spokesman Spencer Whyte of Kanata, Ontario, Canada...

Roots & Rye’s Chef Julian Yeo Gives Macy’s Cooking Demonstration

Roots & Rye’s Chef Julian Yeo Gives Macy’s Cooking Demonstration

On the menu on Chef Julian Yeo’s July 16 Macy’s presentation were golden potatoes with smoked onion fennel soubise and Ikura 63 degree egg. The dish took close to an hour to prepare and it was worth the wait. Each guest sampled a wedge of the mealy Yukon gold potatoes nestled in a light cream sauce and garnished with sprigs of fragrant dill and glossy orange balls of salty salmon roe.

“Every month when we do these demos, the people who come can learn about the restaurants and chefs in the area they might not know about,” says event moderator Carolyn Jung, a Bay Area food writer and creator of the blog Foodgal.com. “A lot of times, after demos, people are excited and can’t wait to go to the restaurant to have a meal...”

Santa Claran Writes Debut Novel About Santa Clara

Santa Claran Writes Debut Novel About Santa Clara

The City of Santa Clara might be a rapidly growing city, but many still consider it a bit of a small town. So much to where some people still have no idea where Santa Clara is on a map, but that might all change soon as Santa Clara native and City of Santa Clara employee Eileen Magill has recently written her debut novel, “House of Homicide” - a mystery that takes place within the City. In fact, the infamous house Magill writes about, although dramatized, is actually located within City limits...

This Week's Letters

Mr. Johnstone’s July 22 letter requires several clarifications.

Last year was Ro Khanna’s second run for elected office. In 2004, he ran a protest campaign against the Iraq war. Ro did not declare his candidacy in 2012 and was not on the ballot. 2014 was his first major run for office. Starting with only 3 percent name recognition, he lost by only 3.6 percent to Mike Honda. 

Ro currently works at Smart Utility Systems (an energy efficiency company with an office in Santa Clara) and as a Stanford economics lecturer. He is a qualified intellectual property attorney and has been employed as such in recent years. Ro is also actively engaged in local issues, such as supporting the Northside Library and Youth Soccer Park in Santa Clara.

Sincerely,
Marco Galluccio

Just wanted to say the column written by Miles (July 22 issue, Milestones) about tolerance was the best thing he has ever written. More people have died because of religion than just about anything else except maybe the plague. Mix in politics and all hope of tolerance is lost.

Triton Museum Adds to Permanent Collection

Triton Museum Adds to Permanent Collection

For over a year, Lighthouse Bank President Richard Hoffstetter attempted to find a home for an eight and a half foot concrete sculpture housed outside of his bank’s future Santa Cruz location. He searched and searched but was unable to find a taker for the curved, rebar enforced slab of concrete, sand and polyethylene, but time was running out.

Lighthouse Bank was inching closer to a remodel that would take place on the exact spot where the sculpture had stood for the last 32 years...

Intel Car Show

Intel Car Show

Mission Boulevard in Santa Clara was buzzing with activity on July 23 as cars cruised to Intel’s Santa Clara campus for the 8th Annual Intel Car Show.

With about 125 cars on display and no judging, it’s easy to see why the show has grown in popularity over the years. Held during lunch (11:30 am to 1:30 pm), the show attracts a loyal following.

Each year, the cars change, but unlike a lot of shows, entry is free. Those showing a car receive a voucher for lunch and a bottle of Meguiar’s Interior Detailer Cleaner.

Because of the unique nature of the show, the modern-day exotics didn’t garner the attention they usually do. Sunnyvale resident Ellen Sallers, summed it up, “I was walking to my car when I heard an odd sound - the rumble of small engines...

City Council Wants to Hire More Firefighters, Without Waiting for FD Needs Assessment

At the July 14 Santa Clara City Council meeting, the Council voted to add two positions to the 2015-16 Fire Department budget – or, rather, they voted to put adding the positions on the next agenda to vote on; but not before the Council had a long micro-managerial discussion on whether more firefighters were needed; if so, how many; and in what positions.

The discussion started on July 7 when Santa Clara City Firefighters Local President Steve Silva asked the City Council to reconsider the number of firefighter positions that were added to the 2015-16 budget.

The Fire Department has lost 24 positions since 2008, and the current budget fills six of them – allowing the FD to put another ambulance on the street, a critical need according to Santa Clara Fire Chief Bill Kelly. Beyond that, it was a matter of strategic planning...
