The concert sounds wonderful & it's a reminder to appreciate our libraries. What a great resource for Pueblo Nuevo.

What's w/the annoying trend of calling it West Menlo Park? How silly- it's not a neighborhood, it's a large area that should be referred to as Menlo Park & if more specifics are needed, the neighborhood. It being listed as a separate area in the crime logs should stop as well.

Hmmm, West Menlo Park refers to the area near the western portion of incorporated Menlo Park (east of Sharon Heights) that is unincorporated. There are pockets of this unincorporated land, including along the Alameda, and that's what the term refers to. In the crime log, the incidents listed under "West Menlo Park" would be handled by the sheriff's office.

Thank you, Dr. Know. We always just called that area & the uninc area north of Willow "unincorporated Menlo." It seems that the area north of Willow may be the only Menlo uninc that doesn't have a nickname? I guess I should retire my eye rolling :-)

Are you going to the concert? I can't, due to previous plans, but I sure would love to.

I've heard this ensemble perform, and they are all fantastic musicians who come together beautifully. So I'm really sorry I won't be able to hear them in this concert. Hope they do another again soon.
