Paul Simon is walking away from show business, but not before performing a benefit Saturday in Los Altos Hills.
 

A private Los Altos Hills residence may be one of the last – and least likely – concert venues for singer-songwriter Paul Simon. He’s scheduled to perform 7 p.m. Saturday at a benefit for a nonprofit organization committed to addressing global poverty.

Simon, who announced recently that he is retiring from the music scene after his last tour, is performing in support of The Life You Can Save, an advocacy and educational outreach agency that works to help poverty-stricken people in developing countries. Among its goals, The Life You Can Save connects potential donors with a host of vetted charities to ensure that money is put to he best use.

Forum organizers seek candidate questions

Organizers of the Oct. 6 Los Altos City Council Candidates Forum invite local residents to submit questions for candidates.
