Which community, Adams? Palo Alto or East Palo Alto? In the latter, people use their town's publication & cable show for news, as well as word of mouth and via schools, churches & community groups to find out what's going on in town.

I flagged "Juan's" snide, snotty, elitist, biased comment, as it deserves. I flagged the first comment as well.

The people I know who've worked for her - all educated Anglos, if that matters - speak highly of her.
