“I see the cafe as an extension of my living room,” says Kathleen Daly, owner of Cafe Zoe, which Readers’ Choice voters picked as the place for live music. Cafe-goers — whether socializing, working, or sipping an impressive latte — make up a community that mimics a family staying at Ms. Daly’s house. Musicians in the neighborhood have found Cafe Zoe to be a comfortable haven for self-expression. Though the music scene at the cafe has been quiet of late, live music events will restart in August, she says. 1929 Menalto Ave., Menlo Park; 322-1926.

PRODUCE Ever wonder why, when you’re sleuthing out a new outfit at Stanford Shopping Center, you suddenly crave a peach? It could be the free samples at Sigona’s Farmers Market, where locally, organically grown produce is just a few steps away. If you’re overwhelmed by choice, check out the online recipe section for what to do with half a flat of strawberries, or how to make corn-on-the-cob amazing (think: parsley, basil, tarragon, chives, sage and chervil). 399 Stanford Shopping Center, Palo Alto; 329-1340.

SHOE STORE There’s this guy who bought a pair of shoes several years ago at Nordstrom. After about eight years, when the sole separated from the top of a shoe, he bought them back to Nordstrom and asked if it could be repaired. The salesman said no, but he would give the customer credit for about 80 percent of the original price of the shoe. The customer then used the credit to buy a pair of sneakers. After about a week, when the customer discovered the sneakers were too small, he brought them back to Nordstrom to get a larger size. The customer not only got the right size, but a 20 percent discount since the shoe was on sale. Any questions? 550 Stanford Shopping Center, Palo Alto 94304; 323-5111.

SANDWICHES Despite two remodels in the past three years, the Village Cheese House in Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village retains its standing as a much-loved local sandwich place.

Why have voters in the Readers’ Choice poll picked The Pet Place as their favorite pet store for 18 consecutive years? It comes down to the quality of service provided by owners Lynn and Marc Macy and their friendly and knowledgeable staff. It’s a store with a heart that’s devoted to the health and welfare of animals through support of such programs as animal rescue and adoptions. The Pet Place goes the extra mile, whether it’s locating a difficult-to-find product, referring a customer to a veterinary specialist, finding a custom harness for a disable dog, or suggesting a toy for your favorite “grandcat.” The Pet Place has been recognized nationally as the U.S. retailer of the year by Pet Product News magazine and has received Menlo Park’s prestigious Golden Acorn award for professional excellence. 777 Santa Cruz Ave., Menlo Park; 325-7387.

Members of the Woodside Vaulters accomplish this feat with excellence, as demonstrated by their recent top honors at the U.S. Equestrian Federation and American Vaulting Association national championships. The competition was held July 29 to Aug. 1 at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara. Katherine Salisbury, 9, of Atherton was awarded first place in the compulsory freestyle round to win the trot individual women’s championships. She also received the AVA Zone Award for her successive high marks, said Carrie Wick, spokesperson for Woodside Vaulters. Katherine has been vaulting for four years and attends Philips Brooks School in Menlo Park. Kristen Kuhn, 8, who also has been vaulting for four years, won the women’s preliminary trot division. Miki Yang, 5, of Los Altos, won the women’s novice trot division. Four other trot vaulters from Woodside Vaulters placed in the top 10 of the competition.

Carolyn L. Rutherford, who joined her husband, Robert Rutherford, in founding the Marine Science Institute in Redwood City 40 years ago, died July 24. A resident of The Sequoias in Portola Valley for Carolyn nine years, Ms. Rutherford was 80. Rutherford Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ms. Rutherford was a graduate of Florida State University.

More than a million students of all ages discovered the wonders of the San Francisco Bay Estuary through the institute, say family members. Later she worked for the David and Lucile Packard Foundation in Los Altos for 15 years. Ms. Rutherford sang with the Peninsula Women’s Chorus for 30 years, as well as in church choirs. She and her husband traveled with the chorus to England and Wales, Europe and Hawaii. Throughout her life she volunteered and gave generously to causes for the poor and human rights, particularly for women and children, say family members.

Woodside artist unveils â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Miracle of Hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A fusion of art, science and raw emotion will be unveiled in Woodside on Friday, Aug, 27. A three-paneled work, entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miracle of Hope,â&#x20AC;? by Woodside artist Dave Putnam, follows the struggle of a human cell infected with HIV. In the triptych, the cell is initially overrun by the HIV protease enzyme, but beneficent protease inhibitors eventually triumph over the intruding disease. Mr. Putnam and his wife Martha said they will give 30 percent of their art sales during the month of August to the Stanford Positive Care Clinic to fund AIDS research. The triptych will reside at the Atherton clinic at 3351 El Camino Real, Mr. Putnam said. The unveiling event, which will run from 7 to 10 p.m., will occur at 1101 Canada Road in Woodside.

Caltrain holds public meetings on fare hikes, service cuts Proposed fare increases and service suspensions will be topics for a Caltrain community meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 19, at Caltrain headquarters in San Carlos. Meetings to receive public comments will also take place in San Francisco, San Jose, and Gilroy. Among the proposals to be considered are: suspending all weekend service, reducing some non-commute weekday service, discontinuing staffed ticket offices, and increasing the full fare one-way base or zone fares by 25 cents. Caltrainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget problems can be

attributed to several factors, according to Caltrain spokesman Christine Dunn. The railroad has lost $10 million in state funds each year for the last three years and, because of the recession, fewer people are commuting to work. Last year, eight mid-day trains were eliminated and parking fees were increased to close a $2.6 million budget gap. The San Carlos meeting will be held in the auditorium at Caltrain headquarters, 1250 San Carlos Ave. Go to Caltrain.com for more information.

Pension reform lawsuit in legal limbo Those following the pension reform initiative lawsuit will have to wait a while to find out what the court intends to do. At a hearing on Aug. 12, San Mateo County Superior Court Judge George Miram agreed to consider the lawsuit, but gave no indication of when he might reach a decision. Attorney Richard Miadich, who represents one of the plaintiffs, said the judge has 90 days. That leaves open the question of whether the lawsuit will be decided before the Nov. 2 elections. A grassroots campaign led by Citizens for Fair and Responsible Pension Reform gathered enough signatures to have the initiative placed on the ballot. The initiative seeks to raise the retirement age for new, nonpolice public employees five

years to 60, and also decrease their pension payments. Two unions, Service Employees International Union Local 521 (SEIU) and American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees Local 829 (AFSCME), filed the lawsuit to argue that only the City Council has the authority to change pension compensation.

member of the Menlo Park Downtown Alliance, a group of business and property owners who promote an alternative to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown development plan, said 60 people signed the allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s petition this time. The alliance clashed with the chamber during the last block party for advocating the alternative from a table in front of Posh Bagel, on property owned by Ms. Couperus. The chamber drew criticism for saying the alliance had to be in a free speech zone, but not asking representatives of the Bohannon Gateway Project to do likewise. On Aug. 11, however, the alliance sat on Crane Street, with tables lined up at the border of Santa Cruz Ave. where the action was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One young woman came up to us and put her foot across the sidewalk line, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I feel any difference here; this free-speech zone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be affecting me at all,â&#x20AC;? said Ms. Couperus. And the Bohannon Gateway Project? Representatives were working the crowd from another free-speech zone a bit further down the block from the alliance.
