To most, there’s not much to do, nowhere to shop and never any parking. It is always being compared to the fabulous downtown Los Gatos, which is at least twice the size and has anything anyone could ever want: diverse shopping, a variety of eateries, a central park and lots of parking lots. Saratoga’s downtown was hardly even in the running to match Los Gatos. read more » 9-11 commemorative wine is in bad taste September 26, 2011 — by Denise Lin September 11.

Goodlett's school specializes in math and science, yet her "effectiveness" score was said to be only "average." Although one might assume from the label she was given that she is a mediocre teacher, the truth is, there is no way to really know. read more » Track sprints home stetch June 7, 2010 — by Denise Lin and Aanchal Mohan After qualifying at CCS trials, freshman Melodie Bellegarda and sophomore Ailene Nguyen hoped to continue on their winning streak into CCS finals.

Cool waves, glistening dolphins and the harmony of marine life come to mind. The harsh reality, though, is that this peace has been tarnished by humankind. In Japan, dolphin poaching is prevalent, and in some bays the blood has dyed the water into a sickly blood red. It is also no secret that sharks are often captured, have their fins cut off, and are thrown, crippled and vulnerable, back into the waters. Despite such appalling occurences, little has been done. read more » Davis incorporates experiences into teaching March 23, 2010 — by Denise Lin and Christine Tseng Ask physics teacher Kirk Davis about his work before becoming a teacher and he says he had worked as a trash collector for 20 years. ...

January 21, 2010 — by Parul Singh and Denise Lin The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community has always been underrepresented and discriminated against, but the recent appointment of Amanda Simpson to the post of Senior Technical Advisor to the Commerce Department is definitely a step forward for the LGBT community.

While convenience plays an influence on the decision, the cost of private schools in the current economy (which often runs as high as $33,927) is convincing an increasing number to enroll in their local public schools.
