New free daily in Los Gatos, California

The Palo Alto (Calif.) Daily News has launched another paper in Los Gatos, Calif., a city of about 20,000 west of San Jose, Calif., in the middle of Silicon Valley. Los Gatos had a daily years ago that was acquired by the San Jose Mercury News, the region's dominant newspaper. It will be interesting to see if the Palo Alto formula of small-town news will work in a sophisticated, cutting-edge tech hub.
