“ The Only Thing That Is
Constant Is Change ”
TODAY , we embrace change. I think if we didn’t, we would be
in trouble. And although, some changes are easier than others, it seems
that with each change, comes a new adventure, relationship or interesting
turn that we otherwise might not have had. Of course, change is just the icing on
the cake. The cake being our constants — a great support staﬀ , a consistent group
of contributors and columnists, advertisers that value their placement in our pages
and the amazing people and places in South Santa Clara Valley that provide us
with our content.
We will be bidding a fond farewell to Edgar Zaldana who has been our
Distribution Manager for the past four and a half years. He leaves us to devote his
time to his full-time management job at Westside Grill. He will be missed but we
know where to find him. Tamera Long, our new manager, will be taking the
magazine around to our 200+ locations starting with this
issue. Welcome Tamera!
We also want to welcome Carly Gelsinger, Carly
Gelsinger Creative Services. Carly will be working with us
on all things social media. She will be posting to our web-
site blog, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram as well
as helping us with features. We are excited to have her
TODAY team and look forward to her
interactions with all of you online.
A couple of other changes—our columnist, Sam Bozzo,
concluded his series on “Life in Gilroy,” and will be writ-
ing a series on “Cooking for Fun” starting with this issue and the Gilroy Garlic
Festival’s Charity Cook-off. Be sure to check in with him as he covers some inter-
esting cooking traditions in the next few issues.
Sherry Hemingway’s “Book Club Beat” has run it’s course with over 14 book
clubs highlighted over the past three years. We are hoping to find someone who
would like to write book reviews for future issues so stay tuned to see what we
come up with. Sherry said we might be able to talk her into doing a feature story
for us in the future so we’ll look forward to seeing her words in
the near future.
Last but not least on my list of changes — Connie Blackwell has joined our team
to help with some administrative tasks as well as our ever growing sponsorships.
TODAY actively supports organizations that make our region a better place
to live and work. Sponsorship proposals and requests may be sent to Connie at
email@example.com. Welcome Connie!
