Wonder how many Mountain View residents walk to work or when Google started city-wide Wi-Fi? The answers lie within. Check out the Arts and Entertainment section for inspiration for a night out: Will it include live music and dancing, an outing to the theater or perhaps a reading at a bookstore? Whole chapters are devoted to kids, with information on child care centers and sports leagues, as well as education, both public and private. Another focuses on recreation, with hundreds of options for biking, hiking, sailing or enjoying parks. To contact a member of the Mountain View City Council or for information on boards and commissions, turn to the Public Officials section. In addition to the thousands of listings inside, you can visit www. mv-voice.com and find even more. Online you'll also find information about our surrounding communities, including Palo Alto, Stanford and Menlo Park, as well as others in our region.
