A question for REAL Palo Alto oldtimers...newbies need not reply.

Is Ms. Gamage related to the late Walt Gamage who wrote the column 'Sport Shots' in the old Palo Alto Times before it was acquired by the Chicago Tribune?

Those who actually remember the column will recall the cartoon heading above the piece with a sportswriter holding a pencil as though it was a rifle.

This would be back in the 1960s.

At 100, Ms. Gamage looks great!

Web Link "When Walt came to the Palo Alto Times it had only a half-page of sports," remembered his wife, Crystal Gamage, who remains extremely active in the community.

The Palo Alto Times was a major local newspaper back in the day for Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills & Mountain View residents.

A lot of kids had PA Times afternoon routes. For many families, the SF Chronicle or SF Examiner or the SF News Call-Bulletin was the AM paper & the PA Times the afternoon newspaper.

The SJ Mercury sucked & still does...an amateurish rag.
