Local Heroes San Jose Native Named Navy Medicine West Regional 2018 Senior Sailor of the Year Cont’

She is also responsible for operating six geographically dispersed locations that provide immunizations, health education, and services that include industrial hygiene, environmental health, and undersea medicine. “I’m very proud to be part of an organization that recognizes and promotes its Sailors based on merit,” said Solorio. “I don’t think I’ve done anything special. I’ve just tried to be a better person—I volunteer, I

stay fit, I take care of our Sailors, and I make sure that our mission is being met. When you do these things, it’s going to show in your work and hard work does pay off.” Solorio also deployed in support of Pacific Partnership 2018, serving aboard both USNH Mercy (T-AH 19) and USNS Brunswick (T-EPF 6). As a preventive medicine technician (PMT), she participated in three week-long subject matter expert exchanges and cooperative health

engagements, working with public health workers and industrial hygienists in host nations to provide guidance for food, health, and habitability inspections, food safety program development, and control of communicable diseases. “HM1 Solorio was selected as Naval Health Clinic Hawaii’s 2018 Senior Sailor of the Year due to her consistent leadership, being a wellrounded subject matter expert, her humble confidence but mostly because she makes all Sailors up and down the chain of command better,” said Command Master Chief Michael B. Gutierrez. “She is one of the best Sailors I have seen in my 26 years of service.” Gutierrez added that Solorio exemplifies the Navy’s core value and lives the Navy Ethos daily. Capt. Kimberly Zuzelski, commanding officer of NHCH, echoed those sentiments saying Solorio is an exceptional PMT and leader as well as someone who genuinely cares about others. “I, and the entire Naval Health Clinic Ohana, are ecstatic that HM1 Solorio was selected as Navy Medicine West’s Senior Sailor of the Year and we are extremely proud of


her,” said Capt. Kimberly Zuzelski, commanding officer of NHCH. “Whether she’s deployed, volunteering in the community, developing junior Sailors, or supporting the warfighter, she’s one-hundred percent committed to service.” The Sailor of the Year program was established in 1972 by Former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Elmo Zumwalt and former Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy John Whittet to recognize an individual Sailor who best represents the group of dedicated professional Sailors at each command and, ultimately, in the Navy. Navy Medicine West leads (NMW) Navy Medicine’s Western Pacific health care system and global research and development enterprise. Throughout the region, NMW provides medical

care to nearly 700,000 beneficiaries across 10 naval hospitals, two dental battalions, and 51 branch clinics located throughout the West Coast of the U.S., Asia, and the Pacific. Globally, NMW also has oversight of eight research laboratories across the U.S. and overseas that deliver high-value, high-impact research products to support and protect the health and readiness of service members.

For the Soul Stanford University announces Stanford Live partnerships with Goldenvoice and the San Francisco Symphony The partnerships at Frost Amphitheater will include rock, pop and classical concerts, as well as spoken word performances in the inaugural season of this newly renovated venue in the university’s arts district. Stanford University is excited to announce two musical partnerships.

Dear neighbors,

District 2 News

Together, we have accomplished a lot in the two years that I have been in office. I am fiercely committed to advocating for a better, more equitable San José for all our residents each and every day. Let’s reflect on some of our most monumental victories in 2018: • 52 grants to community organizations that benefit D2 residents • 40 memoranda, including my policy proposals, stances on crucial issues & other recommendations • 40 D2-hosted meetings & events to educate, unite & engage the community • 24 clean up events, beautification days & #D2CleanStreets Initiative projects • 15 successful initiatives completed in our community, thanks to our strong partnership with our residents & other City departments • 10 commendations, invocations & proclamations in which I invited influential community members to present at City Council meetings • 5 approved Budget Documents that secured money for District 2 community programs & capital improvements • 1 more remarkably productive year in the books! I take pride in being able to use my platforms -- including my website, Facebook, Twitter, Nextdoor, and this monthly newsletter -- to share with you both our office and community’s hard-earned successes. With every post I publish, it is my goal to provide transparency and invite you to see behind the scenes of everything my team and I do. From community events that bring people together to neighborhood discussions that move policies forward, thank you for being part of what makes District 2 a safe and thriving community. I appreciate you taking time out of your day to read about our work in our District, San José, and beyond. You can find more details, photos, and resources for our efforts and accomplishments -- including my 2017 year in review -- on my website in my newsletter archive at I have big plans for 2019, including strengthening community outreach and establishing new projects for my #D2CleanStreets Initiative, my ongoing multi-faceted approach to combating the trash and blight plaguing our streets. I hope you will join me in moving our City forward as we work together to make our neighborhoods a more inclusive place for people like you who call San José home. In community, Sergio Jimenez, San Jose Councilmember District 2

Shark Bite Nearly 1,500 New San Jose Sharks Library Cards Are Issued in the First 72 Hours

San José Public Library and San Jose Sharks partner to introduce firstever Sharks library card San José, Calif., February 7, 2019 – The San José Public Library (SJPL) and the San Jose Sharks have partnered to introduce the first-ever San Jose Sharks library card. The library card was made available to the public on Monday, Feb. 4, and within the first 72-hours of its release, a total of 1,458 new cards were issued to community members. As of today, there are 533,299 SJPL members. This limited edition card was designed to include the Sharks’ current Stealth color scheme and theme, and will be available while supplies last at all of SJPL’s 24-locations. The public is invited to pick up a FREE Sharks card by becoming a member of their San José Public Library, or replacing their current card with the new design. To celebrate the partnership, SJPL hosted a press conference on

Friday, Feb. 1 at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library where the new library card was unveiled. City Librarian, Jill Bourne, was joined by Mayor Sam Liccardo, President of Sharks Sports and Entertainment, John Tortora, President of the Library Foundation, Jason Papier, and over 100 community members. “The San Jose Sharks are thrilled to partner with the San José Public Library on the Stealth Sharks library card,” said Sharks President John Tortora. “It’s our hope that all Sharks fans – young and old – will take advantage of the opportunity to show that they are a proud member of Sharks Territory and to share the gift of reading with their family members and friends.” In addition to the new Sharks library card, SJPL will give fans an opportunity to win autographed hockey pucks donated by the Sharks, and a variety of events will be presented by the Sharks at several branch libraries, starting this

summer. Partnering with organizations such as the San Jose Sharks allows the San José Public Library to further boost awareness, connect and engage with community members to ensure library programs, services and resources are being accessed by people of all ages and backgrounds. “These past few years, library staff has been working rigorously to implement a number of significant changes to our services, from expanding hours to introducing fine forgiveness programs, and most recently, eliminating fines on all youth materials,” says City Librarian, Jill Bourne. She adds, “One of our goals this year is to increase the number of library cardholders in our city, with the hope of one day having every resident become an active user of their library.” For more information and to become a member of the San José Public Library, visit: sjsharks
