OUR VIEW: Food trucks for the 4th

Cheers for the great addition to one of our community’s best events of the year. Food trucks are coming to the Freedom Fest. At Community Park when the July 4 fireworks show is, there will be “an amazing assortment” of food trucks, said Charles Weston, president of Independence Day Celebrations. So, hold on to that appetite, set up some lawn chairs and get ready to pick out your favorites from the bank of 10 food trucks which will feature everything from tri-tip sandwiches to Korean BBQ to specialty hot dogs. Nice going Freedom Fest folks!
Jeers for the power outage June 16 that left more than 2,000 people without power and cost Morgan Hill Bowl several thousand dollars in sales and impacted the pocketbooks of many a Morgan Hill business. This outage business is becoming far too routine and the City Council should demand a public report from PG&E on reliability in Morgan Hill. A spokeswoman said the cause of the outage was equipment failure related to a circuit breaker. Is the maintenance schedule adequate? Perhaps the businesses that lost money should send a bill to PG&E for lost income.
Cheers to the City of Morgan Hill for offering free admission this summer for skaters and BMXers wanting to take advantage of the Morgan Hill Skate Park. Free admission will last through Sept. 3. The facility will also offer group lessons and if the city would only put together a marketing plan it could turn the sparse attendance at the facility around in one summer.  
Jeers to the owner of two pits bulls that got loose and attacked a horse on Burnett Avenue June 14. The severely injured horse eventually had to be euthanized. At least one of the dogs was taken into custody. And this only cements the notion, whether right or wrong, that the pit bull breed is a dangerous one that needs to be regulated.
Cheers for South Valley Community Theater’s production of “The Wizard of Oz.” SVCT always puts on top-notch productions, and this is sure to be one you won’t want to miss. The show continues through July 7 at the Morgan Hill Community Playhouse.
Cheers for the home loans that were saved in Madrone Plaza. About 30 families will now be able to purchase new homes there after $1.4 million of former RDA funds were  allocated to the project.
