The planning commission voted 5-2 in favor of the new location. Commissioners Cynthia Dodd and Michael Rich voted against the measure. Commissioner Phil Reynolds said this decision was one of the toughest calls he’d ever had to make as a commissioner, explaining that he thinks Boswell’s is a “wonderful business” but he himself wouldn’t want to live next to it. However, he supported the business’ right to be on the property. “All we have to go on, really, is the General Plan that says this site can work with this business,” he said.

FAMILIAR DIRECTION: WVLO Musical Theatre Company is wrapping up its 53rd season with the last weekend of “Monty Python’s Spamalot” at the Saratoga Civic Theatre, directed by Geoffrey Ward. That name may be familiar to South Bay audiences for a couple of reasons. Ward played Jesus in the San Jose Civic Light Opera production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” alongside Heather MacRae. But he then moved to Southern California and joined the cast of the daytime drama, “Days of Our Lives.” You’ve got to think that working on a soap opera would provide some good experience for directing a farce like “Spamalot.” You can check ou the show Saturday or Sunday, with tickets available at www.wvlo.org.
